Researchers in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University have discovered yet another reason why broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables are so good for you: They contain a compound called sulforaphane that provides not just one, but two ways to prevent cancer through the complex mechanism of epigenetics.
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” You’ve heard this saying your whole life. It’s stuck around so long because it’s true.
It can also be said that whole foods (fruits and vegetables, especially eaten raw) every day will keep the doctor away. If more Americans ate their fruits and vegetables, as their mothers told them growing up, there would be much less disease and obesity.
Science has taken nature out of healing, growing crops and nearly every other aspect of modern life, often to the detriment of health and prosperity; now, scientists want to grow your meat in a lab. Mark Post, a Dutch scientist, says that by fall he will have perfected a method of making beef from the stem cells of cows.
A film premiering next month at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, chronicles an Alabama couple’s attempt to live for a year on food grown only in their home State.
A “normal” diet no longer consists of whole, natural foods that were intended for everyday human consumption, but has come to mean the intake of any number of processed, genetically modified, steroid- and hormone-enhanced foods. The massive health deficit caused by poor diet is evident, so would it be surprising to find that fasting may be a highly effective way to combat cancer?
Dr. Royal Lee was the founder of the Standard Process Company, famous for its whole-food supplements organically grown on its own farms.
Lee was at least 100 years ahead of his time. He spent most of his life in confrontation with the Food and Drug Administration and U.S. agricultural authorities. He probably never knew that the people trying to channel his great work were the big pharmaceutical houses fronted by the FDA.
Paula Deen, the Southern chef known for creating fat- and sugar-laden dishes, has sold her soul to the devil that is Big Pharma.
Deen now admits that she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes three years ago. But rather than use her bully pulpit to preach a lifestyle of making healthy eating choices, Deen is now promoting the diabetes drug liraglutide (Victoza) manufactured by Novo Nordisk.
A recent study by the University of Iowa College of Public Health finds retail pork products in the United States have a higher prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (MRSA) than previously identified.
Loving parents are being charged with child abuse because authorities fail to consider low levels of vitamin D in infants as a cause of broken bones and head trauma.
Many pediatricians warn parents to keep their newborns out of direct sunlight and use sun block to protect their baby’s skin. Pediatricians don’t routinely check infants for vitamin D levels. But breastfed babies, particularly black babies born in late winter and early spring and living above latitude 35 degrees, are susceptible to low vitamin D levels, according to John Cannell, MD., of the Vitamin D Council.
You asked me for ideas on how to make food storage work for you. You asked for articles that were practical in 2012. So let’s take your food storage up to the next level: live food. Along with prepackaged and convenience foods, you need some food that can be sprouted. Dead food in storage cannot sustain you.
