Americans are obsessed with reducing the effects of aging on their hair, skin, muscles and brain. Here are five substances that can improve the aging process and five more that dramatically worsen the effects of time on your body Continue reading
Aluminum has been linked to diseases such as cancer, autism, and Alzheimer’s. This toxic material is entering the human body via everyday consumption of food, water, cosmetics and an increasing number of vaccinations.
According to the USDA, more than half of all foods tested last year had detectable levels of pesticide residues, but most, they claim, are within the “safe” range. However, foods are NOT tested for glyphosate residues Continue reading
Could two of the Western world’s most popular foods – wheat and cow’s dairy – be depleting you of your antioxidants and altering your DNA expression in a harmful way?
A fascinating new study sheds much needed light on the topic of why a diet free of wheat gluten Continue reading
Sensible sun exposure is an important component for optimal health, for a number of reasons. Vitamin D production is one; production of cholesterol sulfate is another
Cholesterol sulfate is Continue reading
In conjunction with the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (ConsumerWellness.org), Natural News (NaturalNews.com) has begun publishing heavy metals lab reports for off-the-shelf food products. With industrial pollution worsening and many “organic” foods now imported from China, heavy metals and toxic elements are increasingly being found in foods purchased by consumers, Continue reading
Today the mainstream media is gleefully reporting findings they mistakenly believe show all multivitamins to be worthless at preventing disease. “Case Closed: Multivitamins Should Not Be Used,” declares Forbes. “New studies dispel multivitamin myths,” reports NBC News. And CBS News shouts, “case is closed” after studies find no health Continue reading
I’d like to thank all the Natural News readers for your support as I’m engaged in intensive laboratory research and not posting very many stories right now. This will continue through early January up until we break our big announcements on food science. Continue reading
An exciting new study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine confirms the power of a simple dietary change in improving memory problems in middle-aged and older adults.
Thirty-two subjects with self-reported memory complaints were randomly assigned to drink 8 ounces of either pomegranate juice or a flavor-matched placebo drink for 4 weeks, Continue reading
A popular cosmetic product since time immemorial, lipstick has long been used by women in many diverse cultures to accentuate their femininity and emanate their own unique expressions of elegance and style to the outside world. But a new study released by the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) School of Public Health raises fresh concerns about the safety of using conventional lipstick products, as many of them were found to contain dangerously high levels of aluminum, cadmium, lead and other toxins.
UCB researchers tested 32 Continue reading
Modern children are being poisoned like never before in the history of human civilization. No wonder the rate of autism in America has skyrocketed to 1 in 88 children over the last few decades, putting autism squarely in the “epidemic” category.
But don’t expect any CDC action on this epidemic. The CDC knows full well why autism rates are exploding across America, but instead of admitting the truth, Continue reading
Aluminum Lake food coloring, used to heavily coat liquid medicines for children, contains dangerous amounts of aluminum and harmful synthetic petrochemicals. These “petrochemicals” are carcinogens containing petroleum, antifreeze and ammonia, which cause a long list of adverse reactions. Aluminum poisoning can lead to short and long term central nervous system (CNS) damage, such as memory impairments, autism, epilepsy, mental retardation, and dementia. Continue reading
We are in the “Age of Aluminum”, this according to a lecture by Dr. Chris Exley, PhD at a January 2011 vaccine safety conference in Jamaica. A common expression among those who deflect aluminum’s toxicity issues is that aluminum is prominent throughout the earth’s crust. What they fail to mention is that aluminum (Al) wasn’t widely bioavailable to humans until the latter part of the 19th Century when it began to be mined for creating metals and medicines.

Believe it or not, salt is good for your health! But why do we often hear our doctors advise us to stay away from salt or salt-treated foods? Yet we need salt to balance our diet. So are all salts the same? What really makes sea salt different from a regular salt? Let us take a closer look on the big difference between regular table salt and sea salt.
Our old table salt is highly refined, going through a process that removes the magnesium and trace minerals. Various additives are added, like aluminum compound to keep it dry. The natural iodine is destroyed during its refining process and only added back in the form of potassium iodide. As for sea salt, it is naturally dried under the heat of the sun. Therefore retains its natural iodine from the sea. It also means there is still large mineral content. With sea salt you don’t need to use too much of it since it has much stronger flavor than table salt.
According to Ayurveda doctors, sea salts are the most beneficial forms of salt because they don’t increase the sodium content of blood, Continue reading
One of the fastest growing health conditions in the US is hypothyroidism. The most common symptoms experienced are lethargy, depression and weight gain. Some of the newest reports are estimating that 15-30% of the population may have thyroid problems. An anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle provide natural solutions to boost thyroid function.
The thyroid gland is one of the most sensitive regions of the body to environmental toxins. The most common environmental toxins affecting thyroid function include:
Industrial Pollutants in Air & Water
Ionizing Radiation from medical devices and microwaves
Heavy Metals such as Mercury, Lead, & Aluminum
Perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) and other chemicals in non-stick pans
Fluoride in water, toothpaste, Continue reading
