A new study published in the journal Environmental & Analytical Toxicology has linked high levels of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, to malformations in piglets born on a Danish farm.
Last year, a Danish pig farmer noticed a sharp increase in malformations and birth defects in his piglets. So he took 38 live-born but malformed, day-old piglets to the Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology at the University of Leipzig, Germany, for study.
Just as important as it is to eat foods that are good for you, you should avoid those foods that are bad for you.
Last week, I gave you the heart-healthy list. This week, I provide a list of foods you should avoid like the plague because they contribute to your risk of heart disease and other ailments.
When mainstream doctors suspect heart disease, they immediately turn to drugs for a cure. There is little discussion of diet.
But the simplest, easiest and tastiest ways to combat heart disease is to eat right. Of course, you knew that already. You know it’s true as is often said that, “you are what you eat.”
Heart health is really quite simple. Certain foods do your heart good. Eat more of them. Other foods do harm to your heart. Eat less of them or avoid them altogether.
One of the vast misconceptions of modern medicine — and there are many — is that if you are sick, you need a doctor or a drug. The most a drug can do is mask symptoms. But people falsely believe that if symptoms are gone, the sickness or malady is gone. This makes modern medicine a world-class hoax.
There are many factors that govern metabolism: race, age, sex, previous food conditions, individual idiosyncrasies, variability of basal metabolism in individuals, rate of metabolism, imperfect balance of ones’ food, fatigue, cold, damp, panic fear, mental depression and imperfect hygiene. Most important of all, infection may influence the onset or modify the course and character of a malady due primarily to dietetic defects.
Most urologists in conventional medicine place high emphasis on the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to determine prostate health. Even though researchers have placed substantial doubts on the validity and reliability of the PSA test, conventional doctors continue to use the test and rely on it to determine male prostate health.
Here is the point: The literature says a low PSA number of about four indicates a normal or healthy prostate, whereas higher numbers put prostate health in doubt and even suggests malignancy. A higher number, of course, calls for biopsy and may lead to prostate surgery.
There are about 150 species of mosquitoes in the United States, and many of them spread disease.
For instance, the Asian tiger mosquito can transmit yellow fever and Dengue fever. The northern house mosquito can transmit West Nile virus.
Vinpocetine, produced from the vinca plant, has been shown to help protect the nervous system. Vinpocetine supports brain metabolism by increasing the body’s ability to use adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is used for cellular energy.
Vinpocetine also increases the synthesis of several brain neurotransmitters. It is reported to be considerably more effective than ginkgo biloba for supporting mental acuity and alertness.
Although it may be embarrassing to discuss the unpleasant condition of hemorrhoids with your healthcare provider, it could be important for your digestive and excretory health.
Hemorrhoids occur when the veins located in your rectum and anus become inflamed, swollen and twisted. They can be very painful and are most often caused by constipation or pressure during bowel movements. For women, they can develop during pregnancy and childbirth.
A new study in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology has found that children of women treated for depression with any of a group of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) while pregnant were more likely to develop brain malformations than children of mothers with no history of depression.
SSRIs include almost all of today’s major antidepression medications, including Prozac, Paxil, Luvox, Zoloft, Celexa and Lexapro. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 234 million prescriptions were written for Americans in 2010, including for between 7 percent and 13 percent of all pregnant women.
The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, remains one big mess. Now the Barack Obama Administration is harassing hundreds of thousands of those who have signed up for the world’s biggest boondoggle, seeking verification of eligibility for subsidies they were initially told they were eligible to receive.
The documents requested include birth certificates, Social Security cards, high school diplomas, driver’s licenses, pay stubs and voter registration cards.
