The number of uncovered benefits from exercising seem to just never cease. Recent research, which can actually be linked back to research conducted many decades ago, shows exercise can be utilized as a powerful tool in reducing the risk of breast cancer. It is estimated that nearly 12 percent, or about 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
How would you react if I were to tell you that you or your child were forced to participate in experimental vaccine trials? A paper published by the American Medical Association’s Virtual Mentor wants to do just that. It seems that the amount of current participants in current experimental vaccine trials is a bit too low, so why not create a federal law forcing each person to need to “opt-out” of experimental vaccine trials in an attempt to better society?
A new Greek scientific study has demonstrated how frequency electromagnetic fields, namely cell phones, portable phones, WiFi, and wireless computer equipment, alter important protein changes in the brains of animals. Exposure to electromagnetic frequencies is the result of our advancing technologies, but it is important to study these effects so people know exactly what they’re dealing with in order to take the necessary precautionary measures.
A recent study conducted by a German university found very high concentrations of Glyphosate, a carcinogenic chemical found in herbicides like Monsanto’s Roundup, in all urine samples tested. The amount of glyphosate found in the urine was staggering, with each sample containing concentrations at 5 to 20-fold the limit established for drinking water.
There is a call for a near-future investigation of illegal synthetics being used in organic food which have been corruptively approved by corporations gaming the system. The United States National Organic Standards Board, a panel that advises the USDA Secretary on all things organic related, was the one to approve Martek Biosciences Coproration’s petition allowing for the use of the synthetic chemical – a genetically modified soil fungus and algae – in organic food.
According to a new research, one in four toddlers in the UK do not have sufficient vitamin D levels, and the deficiency could be causing the kids to experience a delay in walking, muscle weakness, and bone pains. The importance of vitamin D seems to be spreading at a fast pace, but many parents and even health professionals still need to do a little bit more research when it comes to obtaining and maintaining sufficient vitamin D levels.
On December 9th a group of internet hackers who go by the name Anonymous shut down biotech giant Monsanto’s public relations firm. Anonymous, who have temporarily shut down FBI and Justice Department websites are now targeting the GMO giant itself by attacking Monsanto.com. This group of hackers, seemingly working in the shadows, focus their efforts on corrupt organizations in all forms.
Why do we need to worry about the water we are consuming each and every day? When referring to a group of people or someone acting different, the phrase “it must be in the water” is often used as a response. While this phrase is always used comically, you need to know that many of your health problems may indeed be result of what is in the water you are consuming every day.
Here is just one more reason to replace your unhealthy and sugar-laden beverages. A study recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine has shown that black tea not only sparks no increase in blood pressure for people with hypertension, but it may actually have the ability to lower it. Researchers who conducted the study examined the impact of three cups of black tea a day over a six month period.
It seems that a toxic and very lethal byproduct of copper metal refining is present in many mass market products. The ingredient is even utilized as a selling point, which is very strange to say the least given its toxic properties. This often consumed byproduct is known as sodium selenate, and is capable of killing 50% of rats who ingest as little as .4 milligrams of it. Similarly, a human has a 50% chance of dying after consuming only 108 milligrams. To put things into some perspective, 108 milligrams is equal to about 11 grains of sand.
A new study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that dehydration is a key factor in the cause of headaches, loss of focus, fatigue, and low mood while exercising and resting. The importance of staying hydrated and consuming healthy amounts of water has been voiced by experts for decades, but knowing exactly how water can positively impact you may be the key that causes you to increase consumption.
On average, Americans consume 475 calories worth of added sugars each day. That is about 30 teaspoons, or 5x more than even the American Heart Association recommends. The disturbing aspect is that if nothing changes, the rampant sugar consumption continues, and cumulatively begins bearing down on your health in the form of diseases like diabetes and cancer. Just how much sugar are you consuming on a daily basis?
With today’s manufacturing there are many chemicals and toxins that are both purposefully added to products as well as unintentionally added. Mercury is one of those unintended additions to many of the products people consume and topically apply every day. In order to avoid exposure to this heavy metal, and in turn avoid the risk of any heavy metal toxicity, you need to know where the metal resides in order to avoid it.
After analyzing 14 studies, researchers have determined that schoolchildren can boost their academic performance simply by partaking in physical activity. It is well known that exercising is key for maintaining quality health, but now parents may encourage children from a young age to involve themselves with some form of physical activity to boost brain power. By teaching children from a young age that movement is important, we will be setting the groundwork for a future full of physical activity.
A new study published in Free Radical Biology and Medicine shows how grapes can be utilized as a powerful tool in halting or slowing blindness brought on by age. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive eye condition which leads to a suffering retina. The condition affects millions of elderly individuals worldwide, but knowing this information can put a stop to the increasing statistics and even make it so that no eye-sight ‘promoting’ pharmaceuticals are needed.
Omega-3 fatty acids have recently been shown to play a key role in the development of healthy sperm. What the study found was that omega-3 fatty acids turns dysfunctional ’round headed’ sperm into strong, healthy ‘cone-shaped’ headed sperm with egg-opening proteins. This research sheds light on how a diet lacking in omega-3’s could lead to what on the surface seems like infertility. In the study, researchers examined how sperm develops in mice deficient in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a fatty acid that makes up omega-3’s.
A new study evaluating past research on magnesium adds to the evidence that a diet rich in magnesium leads to a lower stroke risk. But while magnesium-rich foods were shown to lead to a lower risk of stroke, the research didn’t determine whether a magnesium supplement would have the same effect or not. It is not entirely known whether a supplement containing only magnesium would have the same effect as foods such as leafy vegetables, nuts, beans, and whole grains, which contain more nutrients and minerals than just magnesium.
