In Defence of Food:

Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 11.37.19“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” With that seven-word maxim, US-based journalist Michael Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet. Pollan offers an answer to one of the most urgent questions of our time: What should I eat to be healthy?

WHAT IS MONSANTO’S CARCINOGENIC HERBICIDE DOING IN TAMPONS?

TO: PROCTER & GAMBLE MAKERS OF TAMPAX AND ALWAYS

Stop sourcing cotton sprayed with glyphosate for hygiene products.

Why is this important?

This is scary — Tampax, Always, and other hygiene products very likely contain the key ingredient in cancerous Monsanto Roundup.

A study done in Argentina earlier this year that found that 85% of tampons, cotton, and other hygiene products contain traces of a cancerous chemical linked to one of the world’s most controversial pesticides. The potential health implications from glyphosate are mounting, and it’s been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization. And this is what millions of women are exposing themselves unknowingly to every day.

Monsanto’s Roundup is the world’s most popular weed killer and most of the cotton in countries like the US and Argentina use Roundup-resistant GM cotton. This is also the case with much of the corn and soy we consume. And glyphosate is a key ingredient.

Art does heal: scientists say appreciating creative works can fight off disease

Researchers from California University in Berkeley say studies show great nature and art boost the immune system.

The healing power of art and nature could be real after scientists discovered they boost your immune system.

 Seeing such spine-tingling wonders as the Grand Canyon and Sistine Chapel or listening to Schubert’s Ave Maria can fight off disease, say scientists.

Great nature and art boost the immune system by lowering levels of chemicals that cause inflammation that can trigger diabetes, heart attacks and other illnesses.

Marijuana can kill cancer cells, says US government-funded research

 

marijuanaThe US government may be starting to officially recognize medicinal benefits of marijuana, as a government-funded research group has released a report claiming that weed can kill cancer cells.

The Daily Caller reported the National Institute on Drug Abuse has issued a report that recognizes potential medical benefits of marijuana, something the US government has rejected in its classification of pot as a Schedule I drug – along with heroin, LSD and ecstasy.

Why All Diabetics Should Know About Turmeric

Green Med Info:

Many diabetics already know about the benefits of a low-glycemic diet, but why haven’t they heard about turmeric, one of the world’s most extensively researched anti-diabetic plants?

A recent literature review published in the International Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism titled, “Anti-Hyperglycemic Effect and Insulin Sensitizing Effects of Turmeric and Its Principle Constituent Curcumin,” adds promising new support to the notion that the ancient Indian spice turmeric may provide an ideal drug alternative to treating and perhaps even preventing type 2 diabetes, which has become of the world’s most prevalent diagnoses.

The study reviewed research published between 1998 to 2013 that indicates the active polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin may provide an ideal intervention for type 2 diabetes, capable of mitigating characteristic pathophysiological hallmarks of the disease such as elevated blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and insulin resistance.

Causes and Effects of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Mercola Article:

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is defined as an excessive accumulation of fats, often accompanied by elevated enzyme levels, in your liver in the absence of significant alcohol consumption.

While it’s normal for your liver to contain some fat, accumulations of more than 5 percent to 10 percent of your liver’s weight are problematic.

Alcohol consumption is a leading cause of fatty liver, but in the case of NAFLD, it occurs in people who are overweight or obese, have high cholesterol, or high triglycerides, and who consume little or no alcohol.

Some people develop NAFLD even without any known risk factors, and this condition affects up to 25 percent of Americans.

NAFLD often has no symptoms, although it may cause fatigue, jaundice, swelling in the legs and abdomen, mental confusion, and more. If left untreated, it can cause your liver to swell, called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), or even contribute to liver cancer or liver failure.
