Celebrity vegan trainer John Pierre, who visited Capitol Hill Monday to tout the benefits of a plant-based diet, told Congressional staffers that school shootings could be a result of poor nutrition. “The average child is drinking over 50 gallons of soda pop a year… and every time you eat or you drink sugar it destroys […]
Monsanto maintains that its genetically modified (GMO) corn is nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO corn. But a 2012 report, titled “2012 Nutritional Analysis: Comparison of GMO Corn versus Non-GMO Corn,” tells a different story.
A copy of the report was sent to Moms Across America by the Canadian non-GMO seed company De Dell Seed Company. In fact, it turns out that GMO corn is essentially nutritionally dead and laced with toxins in amounts that exceed those the Environmental Protection Agency deems “safe.”
John Cannell, M.D., has compiled information on two studies that seem to show that Vitamin D is the missing link in patients with cardiovascular disease.
Writing in his Vitamin D Council blog, Cannell looked at a study done by researchers at Hull York Medical School in England on two of the most commonly prescribed statin drugs: Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Zocor (simvastatin). Both lower cholesterol equally and both are used to prevent cardiovascular disease.
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago have found that cinnamic aldehyde, which is obtained from cinnamon oil, actually decreases the bacteria in your mouth that are the culprits behind bad breath and gum problems. Since there are more than 90 million people who are plagued with chronic bad breath (or halitosis), cinnamon, such as in gum, can be a lifesaver.

Drinking too much wine has obvious negative impacts on cognition, but a new study shows that moderate wine intake could help protect against hearing and cognitive decline in the long term.
The diet of many Americans consists mostly of processed and fast foods. These are foods that are mass produced and devoid of nutrition.
Processed and fast foods are loaded with chemical additives and preservatives. The meat — which is taken from animals medicated with synthetic growth hormones and antibiotics and grown in unhealthy and unnatural conditions — is often more meat by-products and fillers than real meat. The “beef” version of these meat by-products is often what the U.S. Department of Agriculture has come to term “pink slime,” which is beef trimmings and fat treated with ammonia.
Sinus infections affect about 30 million U.S. adults annually. Many people get them twice a year. The standard treatment protocol is a round of antibiotics and steroids taken orally or by nasal spray.
Next time you’re hit with a sinus infection, try a natural remedy instead.
In developed countries, heart disease is the single largest cause of death, responsible for 65,000 deaths each year in the U.K. In the United States, that number is a shocking 600,000.
A recent study proved that a diet rich in strawberries can have a beneficial effect when it comes to preventing gastric illnesses that are related to the generation of free radicals or other reactive oxygen species. The berry could very well slow down the formation of stomach ulcers in humans.
