Athletes and others who regularly work out have begun recognizing that watermelon juice relieves post-exercise muscle soreness and helps the body recover faster after exercise.
A study recently published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry has found the science behind the relief the juice provides. It’s the fruit’s amino acid, L-citrulline.
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.
The hormone called DHEA, whose scientific name is dehydroepianrosterone, is the most prevalent and one of the most essential hormones in human health. According to Dr. Norman Shealy, every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency and low levels of the hormone DHEA.
It is striking that most illnesses are characterized by low levels of both DHEA and magnesium. A connection between these essential chemicals appears to be basic in the understanding of health, wellness, and the restoring and maintaining of youth.
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.
The Internal Revenue Service theft squad issued its final rules on the Obamacare individual mandate Tuesday. They reveal that the whole thing is a bait and switch to benefit a few crony corporations and transfer wealth from the people, as we have told you from the beginning.
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.
One of the leading causes of death among cancer patients is chemotherapy which, along with antibiotics, destroys the body’s immune system and the good bacteria that thrive in the gastrointestinal tract.
A healthy gastrointestinal tract is essential to a strong immune system. Studies on rats that have had their gastrointestinal systems stripped of all bacteria showed they produced less immunoglobulin and had altered immune structures, smaller spleens and reduced levels of important B and T cells.

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.
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.
