If you want to get the most nutrients from a salad, take the advice of researchers who have found that what you put on your salad is as important as what’s in your salad. A study at Purdue shows that olive oil on a salad helps your body absorb more beneficial phytonutrients than other oils make possible.
I am a 71 year old male and a subscriber to your newsletter. Thanks for all of your great info, much appreciated.
A couple months ago you mentioned in one of your monthly newsletters that you were suffering from snoring and sleep apnea.
I too went through the same remedies that you are using. I shifted my diet early this year (“Eat to Live” by Joel Furhman) and as a consequence stopped eating wheat products. Voila! No more snoring or apnea. Period. My girlfriend loves it!
I suggest that you stop wheat products for a month and see what happens. I would also check out other areas where wheat (gluten) lurks. Celiac disease sites are a good start.
Dropping wheat (gluten) does not work for everyone re snoring and apnea.
Google ‘snoring and gluten’ intolerance and you will find many articles.
I wish that someone, including my doctors, had turned me on to this possibility.
Best of luck.
Credit Michelle Obama for promoting water consumption, but she must be criticized for not going far enough.
Everyone, seniors especially, should drink more water and less sugar- and high fructose corn syrup-laden beverages. That’s because these beverages are acidic and HFCS is responsible for a majority of the obesity and poor health of Americans.
What do you recommend as a sugar substitute?
Cutting, burning and poisoning (surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy) do nothing to prevent cancer, nor can they reverse the underlying mechanisms that triggered or promoted its growth in the first place. Moreover, cancer will likely return somewhere else in the body if conventional methods are your only treatment strategy.
In his book Questioning Chemotherapy, leading author and consultant on cancer treatment Ralph Moss, Ph.D., explains chemotherapy to be an effective treatment option in only 2 percent to 4 percent of cancers: Hodgkin’s disease, acute lymphocytic leukemia, testicular cancer and choriocarcinoma.
A new study by the Harvard School of Public Health seems to show that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of suicide than non-coffee drinkers.
Researchers reviewed data from three large caffeine studies and found that the risk of suicide for adults who drank two to four cups of caffeinated coffee per day was about half that of those who drank decaffeinated coffee or very little or no coffee.
After years of dithering, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finally set a standard for labeling foods gluten-free. Gluten, a substance found in wheat, barley and rye, as well as in foods made from those grains, causes autoimmune reactions in at least 3 million Americans and threatens their health.
Way back in 2004, Congress passed a law mandating a standard for foods labeled gluten-free. Recently, pressure has grown on the FDA to set a standard for labeling, as the market for gluten-free foods has climbed to more than $4 billion a year.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) now infest almost everything we consume. Yet, amazingly, most Americans don’t even realize they eat GMO food at just about every meal. That’s because they are deceptively hidden in the list of ingredients.
A hamburger made from test tube-grown “beef” is on someone’s menu for this week.
The so-called beef for the burger is the product of a Dutch professor whose work was financed by an anonymous businessman and the Dutch government. It was created from stem cells stripped from a cow’s muscle that were incubated in a nutrient broth, stretched on a machine to simulate exercise and stimulate growth, then minced with lab-grown animal fat. The final, uncooked product is said to be gray with a slippery texture similar to squid or scallop. The financier may be the first to eat the lab-created slime.
PepsiCo Inc. promised to remove a known carcinogen from its ingredients in order to comply with a California law that would require it to come with a cancer warning label. Yet the soft drink still contains the cancer-causing chemical 4-methylimidazole.
Known as 4-Mel, 4-methylimidazole is a component of the caramel coloring used to give Pepsi its color. The chemical was also found in Coca-Cola. A two-year study by the National Toxicology Program of the Department of Human Services showed 4-Mel caused cancer in rats. Following the 2007 study, both soft drink manufacturers promised to modify their manufacturing processes to remove 4-Mel. In March 2012, both said this had been accomplished.
