If there were a contest for the best example of total disregard for human life the victor would be McNeil Nutritionals – makers of Splenda (sucralose). Manufacturers of Vioxx and Lipitor would tie for a very distant second. Continue reading

How would you like to live to the age of 100 … or 122 … or even 150 years?
There is one major thing that limits the average human lifespan to 79 years old— Continue reading
A brand-new health breakthrough out of Alberta, Canada, shows that keeping a diet high in salt can deplete calcium levels in the body. This raises the risk of kidney stones, osteoporosis, and bone fractures.
When sodium leaves the body, it takes calcium with it. This new study helps explain why people on high-salt diets are prone to such issues as kidney stones and osteoporosis. It found an important link between the two common minerals. Continue reading

Have you ever wondered why some people who eat a balanced and wholesome diet … exercise regularly … and live a healthy lifestyle … sometimes age rapidly and prematurely — while others who drink … smoke … eat junk food and live unhealthy lifestyles sometimes look youthful and live longer without a lot Continue reading
Our mothers were right. Broccoli is good for us, but possibly in ways our mothers never knew. Health practitioners and fitness experts around the world have heralded the benefits of broccoli for decades. Scientists have long demonstrated the antioxidant properties of broccoli. Many people know that broccoli is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, the big free radical scavenger vitamins. However, a brand new clinical study was just released in January 2012 which is getting scientists excited about broccoli – and other cruciferous vegetables – again. Broccoli, and similar vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower may be able to manipulate human genes. The secret ingredient is sulfur.
Sulfur in glucosinolate induces enzyme expression and activates detoxification
Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts have been shown to reduce the risk of several degenerative diseases and conditions. The benefits of a diet rich in these vegetables have been well-documented in the medical literature for cardiovascular disease and cancer. What scientists are excited about now is a unique organic compound called glucosinolate, Continue reading
Medical researchers have discovered that a rogue molecule called galectin-3 is directly involved in chronic and life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, cancer, cirrhosis, arthritis and Alzheimer’s. But there’s a natural way to fight back against galectin-3’s destruction: modified citrus pectin, the only proven natural galectin-3 inhibitor. Continue reading
Israeli scientists may have discovered an effective new way to treat high cholesterol and diabetes naturally. Dr. Yaakov Nahmias from the Benin School of Engineering and Computer Science at Hebrew University and his colleagues have discovered that naringenin, a molecule in grapefruits that gives the fruit its bitter taste, can help to treat arteriosclerosis, hyper-metabolism, and even diabetes.
The study, which was recently published in the journal PLoS One, explains that when a highly-bioavailable “nano-complex” of naringenin is consumed just before a meal that is high in fat and sugar, it can reduce the development of bad cholesterol by roughly 42 percent, and actually increase insulin sensitivity by 64 percent.
Dr. Nahmias and his colleagues allege that naringenin in its natural form is not very easily absorbed by the body. So they developed what they say is an improved version on the substance, which is surrounded by a ring of sugar, called cyclodextrin, and that is 11 times more bioavailable than naringenin that comes straight from a grapefruit.

The dog may be man’s best friend but even so it comes as a surprise that the two species share a common tumor marker. This finding comes from a joint study between scientists of the Vetmeduni Vienna and the MedUni Wien, headed by Erika Jensen-Jarolim. The researchers looked for similarities in breast cancer of dogs and women, focusing on the tumor marker CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen). They uncovered a molecule, the CEA receptor that turned out to be essentially identical in the two species. The result could lead to the rapid development of new therapeutic methods for use in dogs and humans.
Despite steadily improving methods for its diagnosis and treatment, cancer still represents one of the Continue reading
