The mainstream media are ignoring (covering up) the radiation danger posed by the Fukushima Nuclear Reactor disaster. But the situation is critical and poses a health risk to people around the globe.
Radiation readings are elevated along California’s coast. Sea stars are melting in the Pacific Ocean. And a report presented to the October 2013 North Pacific Marine Science Organization’s annual meeting by Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is reaching the shores of Canada and the United States — and was detected at least six months ago — carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar, but slightly different, courses.
Shingles is caused by a reactivation of dormant varicella zoster (chicken pox) virus. It is most common in older adults and people with immune systems weakened by stress, injury, medications or other reasons.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends the shingles vaccine “to reduce the risk of shingles and its associated pain in people 60 years old or older.” According to David Brownstein, M.D., the question of whether to have the shingles vaccine is one of the most asked by his patients.
Strep throat is a bacterial infection in the throat and tonsils caused by the streptococcal bacteria. Its symptoms include a sudden, severe sore throat, painful swallowing, fever above 101 degrees F, swollen tonsils and lymph nodes, and white or yellow spots on the back of a bright-red throat.
The common allopathic treatment for a strep infection is a round of antibiotics. But antibiotics kill the good bacteria in your body as well as the bad and can leave you susceptible to other health problems. Overuse of antibiotics is also a contributor to the growth of the “superbugs” that are resistant to antibiotic treatments.
Flu season is in full swing, so here are several tips to help prevent the flu from infecting your family. Clearly, the stronger your immune defenses are the less likely you are to contract the flu. And you can easily boost your immunity through your diet.
The key to prevention is consuming whole, nutrient-rich foods, mostly from raw, living sources. When you eat more than 50 percent raw foods, you can stop the inflammation triggered by processed, refined or even cooked or baked foods.
If you really want to lose weight, remember what your mom used to tell you about the importance of eating a good breakfast, because it’s true.
Studies show that skipping that first all-important meal of the day makes your brain crave high-calorie foods. This is because your body needs to make up those lost calories, according to Anthony Goldstone, M.D., Ph.D., of Imperial College in Great Britain.
According to statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 23,000 people each year die from drug-resistant infections.
How do bacteria become drug-resistant? One way is overuse of antibiotics. It’s a growing health risk.
Your body needs essential nutrients that come in the form of vitamins and minerals, but do you know how to tell them apart?
Vitamins are organic compounds that can either be fat soluble (easily absorbed by the body) or water soluble (not easily absorbed).
Winter is here; and as the days get shorter, our bodies’ natural ability to produce vitamin D decreases. Winter is also the time when seasonal affective disorder (SAD) cases are the greatest.
There is a correlation.
Proper hydration is crucial to good health, but you won’t get that hydration from drinking sodas, sugary waters and imitation juice drinks.
The best drink for health is something man has consumed from the beginning of time: water.
Did you know that a potent way to lower your blood pressure is by drinking fresh ginger tea? Just put six nickel-size chips of ginger root into two cups of water. Boil the tea and then flavor it with stevia, agave nectar or honey. Relax and sip the ginger tea as it cools.
