Arch across the top of the foot that evolved 3.5 million years ago may be the reason humans can walk and run upright unlike other primates


  • The transverse tarsal arch of the human foot provides almost half its stiffness  
  • It evolved in an ancient human ancestor around 3.5 million years ago 
  • The stiffness allowed hominins to begin walking on two feet opposed to four  
  • Current primates have much flatter feet and can not walk upright like humans   
  • Stiffness from arch across the foot acts as a lever to enable walking and running

Study findings show which alternative hair loss remedies work: Rosemary oil and caffeine revealed to be the most effective therapies

It’s normal for a person to experience hair loss: On average, a person can lose up to 100 hairs from his scalp every day. However, while most people grow them back, those with alopecia experience extreme hair loss, either due to diseases like lupus, thyroid issues or diabetes; environmental exposure; medication; or even poor nutrition. In their study, a team from the University of California, Irvine investigated whether alternative treatments can help relieve the condition. Continue reading

Heart Attack or Panic Attack? How to Tell the Difference


  • What may look and feel like an apparent heart attack may actually be a panic attack, and according to researchers, the cost of misdiagnosing non-cardiac chest pain is high
  • When a heart attack starts, blood flow to your heart has suddenly become blocked and the muscle can’t get oxygen. If not treated quickly, the muscle fails to pump and begins to die
  • A panic attack typically comes on abruptly, producing intense fear and a sense of impending doom that is typically severely disproportionate to the situation at hand. Panic attacks tend to peak within 10 minutes, and most subside within 30 minutes
  • The chest pain associated with a heart attack will typically start as a feeling of pressure, fullness or aching that escalates, reaching maximum severity after a few minutes, whereas the pain associated with a panic attack tends to be sharp and stabbing in the center of the chest, typically lasting only five to 10 seconds
  • Whereas panic-associated pain is localized in one small area of the chest, heart attack symptoms typically include pain or discomfort that radiates from the chest into other areas, such as one or both arms, abdomen, back, shoulders, neck, throat or jaw

All Wrong About Alzheimer’s


  • Drug development for Alzheimer’s has so far been a dismal failure, with 300 failed trials to date
  • In a study of the experimental Alzheimer’s drugs gantenerumab and solanezumab, they failed to slow cognitive decline after an average of five years
  • The drugs were intended to remove beta-amyloid from the brain, but beta-amyloid is a symptom of Alzheimer’s — not the cause
  • Bredesen’s ReCODE protocol evaluates 150 factors, including biochemistry, genetics and historical imaging, known to contribute to Alzheimer’s disease
  • Bredesen has published a case report of 100 patients using the ReCODE protocol, in which all show sustained improvement in symptoms

Here’s why you need phosphorus in your diet, a mineral that promotes bone strength

Phosphorus is a mineral that the body needs to perform important functions, such as repairing tissues and filtering waste. It is the second most plentiful mineral in the body – next to calcium – and it is used to keep the bones strong and healthy. However, as an essential mineral, phosphorus cannot be produced by the body, and should be obtained through diet instead. Continue reading

Cochrane Founder Warns Flu Vaccine Research Is Corrupted


  • Professor Peter Gøtzsche is a Danish physician-researcher who co-founded the Cochrane Collaboration in 1993 and later launched the Nordic Cochrane Centre. He has been an outspoken critic of conflicts of interest and bias in research
  • After Gøtzsche co-wrote a scathing review of Cochrane’s 2018 review of HPV vaccine safety, Cochrane’s governing board expelled him and, in a February 9, 2020, tweet, Gøtzsche took aim at Cochrane’s review of influenza vaccine by alleging that a “financially conflicted” individual “rearranged” vaccine trial data to make it appear as though the influenza vaccine reduces mortality, when it doesn’t
  • In the 15 years prior to Gøtzsche’s expulsion, Cochrane had published several meta-reviews, showing flu vaccinations are ineffective for preventing influenza and influenza-like illness, and have no appreciable effect on hospitalizations and mortality
  • March 3, 2020, Maine residents will have the opportunity to go to the polls and repeal LD 798 to reinstate religious and philosophical vaccine exemptions by voting YES on ballot referendum Question 1
  • The “No on 1” ad campaign primarily financed by Big Pharma has already spent $476,000 on misleading television ads to defeat the ballot referendum that would restore vaccine exemptions in Maine. All but $56,000 for the ad campaign has been paid by vaccine manufacturers, which will profit from keeping the state’s “no exceptions” vaccine mandates (LD 798) in place
