Did You Eat A Death Sandwich Today?

Did You Eat A Death Sandwich Today?

Like many Americans, I love a good sandwich. There’s just something about meat and cheese and lettuce packed between two slices of bread, or wedged into a roll, that is a pleasure to devour. But sandwiches can take a toll on health. If we’re not mindful of the processed meats we put in them, eventually heart disease, migraine headaches, weight gain and general malaise may be sandwiched...

The Food That Makes You Lazy

The Food That Makes You Lazy

A lot of us drink coffee and other caffeinated drinks first thing in the morning to get our get-up-and-go up and going. But researchers have found that if you eat the wrong food with those beverages, those items on your plate can sap your motivation and personal energy. The foods to avoid: junk food like donuts, pastries and sweetened cereal. In lab tests, scientists at UCLA have found that...

The Prostate Cancer Puzzle

The Prostate Cancer Puzzle

Apr 15, 2014 by

Much of the recent debate about how to diagnose prostate cancer focuses on the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test, and its usefulness for deciding on a man’s cancer risk. For more than two decades, the PSA test has been considered the gold standard for detecting prostate cancer early and saving lives. But recently, the PSA test has been called into question. Part of the problem is the nature of prostate cancer: Many men can get the disease but won’t die from it (although factors such as chronic inflammation or heavy metal toxicity can turn a non-aggressive prostate cancer into a deadly one). Other conditions like prostatitis and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) can cause elevated...
The Toxin In Your Water That Reduces IQ

The Toxin In Your Water That Reduces IQ

Apr 15, 2014 by

Had your drinking water tested lately? Research at Columbia University shows that a widespread toxin found in water can hurt memory and intelligence. When the Columbia scientists looked at three school districts in Maine, they found that children exposed to arsenic in drinking water from household wells suffered from declines in their intelligence and IQ scores. The scientists examined 272 children in grades 3-5, who were, on average, 10 years old, who lived in Maine and whose families used wells for their drinking water and cooking. The area around Augusta was studied because other studies showed the presence of arsenic in this location. "Even though purchasing a standard filter...

Improve Your Memory In Six Minutes

Apr 15, 2014 by

If you have trouble focusing your mind and remembering information, scientists at George Mason University and the University of Illinois have some simple suggestions for improving your memory. And their methods take less than 10 minutes. The answer to a lack of mental focus may be meditation. When the researchers had students follow a few basic meditation instructions before a lecture, the students improved their scores on quizzes based on the class. In one experiment, doing pre-lecture meditation made the difference between who passed and who failed the quiz. "Personally, I have found meditation to be helpful for mental clarity, focus and self-discipline," says researcher Jared...

Would you take a pill that might extend your life by up to eight years? Researchers in Germany say the pill (a natural supplement) is for sale right now in your pharmacy. And it has no unwanted side effects. Glucosamine is a natural supplement reputed to ease arthritis and protect joints may be able to fight cancer and increase your life expectancy by up to 8 years. Lab experiments show that it can increase animals’ longevity by 10 percent. According to the researchers, glucosamine extends life by reducing the body’s metabolism of sugar. Laboratory analysis shows that glucosamine also promotes amino acid breakdown. According to researcher Michael Ristow: "This reflects the...

The Pros And Cons Of Using A Chiropractor, Part 2

Apr 14, 2014 by

The scientific research on the benefits and limitations of chiropractic care substantiates the effectiveness of chiropractic care for musculoskeletal conditions. However, studies show there are other health conditions that chiropractors cannot handle very well. The Scientific Literature Supporting Chiropractic Chiropractic is a natural, medication-free, nonsurgical form of healthcare for the diagnosis, treatment and even prevention of musculoskeletal system disorders. Chiropractic affects nerves exiting the spinal column that innervates other body organs. Additionally, your chiropractor likely has valuable nutrition training and may have picked up acupuncture or other skills along the...
Don’t Work During The Cancer Hours

Don’t Work During The Cancer Hours

Apr 14, 2014 by

What are the hours you are at work? Canadian research shows that men who work during one particularly risky time of day run an increased risk for cancer of the prostate, colon, lung, bladder, rectum and pancreas as well as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Research at Centre INRS–Institut Armand-Frappier and Centre de recherche du Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal shows that working at night may up your risk of a whole list of cancers. "Exposure to light at night can lead to a reduced production of the sleep hormone melatonin, inducing physiological changes that may provoke the development of tumors. This hormone, habitually released in the middle of the night in response to...
Losing Weight On The Paleo Diet

Losing Weight On The Paleo Diet

Apr 12, 2014 by

When I went on the paleo diet, I lost so much weight over the period of a year that I was a little worried that my health was in question. But a visit to the doctor showed that nothing was wrong. And since then, my weight has held steady right where I want it. And as long as I eat paleo, I can eat as much as I want. Other people aren’t always so lucky. Paleo websites seem to be full of comments from people who have trouble losing weight on the paleo diet or on other eating plans. I recognize that part of what helps me maintain my weight is my apparently fast metabolism and my addiction to exercise. Unlike other folks who have trouble finding the motivation to work out, I have to...

Reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is up to you. Research in Finland shows that something you can do twice a week helps protects your brain cells. All you have to do, according to this study, is go for a long, vigorous walk twice a week to help your brain avoid deteriorating significantly as you age.

New Insight Into How To Lose Weight

New Insight Into How To Lose Weight

Apr 11, 2014 by

The statistics on how overweight Americans have become are stunning. As many as 80 million people are considered obese, meaning they have a body mass index (BMI) above 30. What that means: If you are 5’ 7” and 192 pounds, your BMI is 30. And being that heavy is not even considered obese. You have to be heavier to be in the obesity category. To be a normal BMI (18.5 to 25), someone that tall would have to weigh 159 pounds or less. Obesity is a skyrocketing public health crisis. More and more people are becoming obese and developing metabolic diseases. Obesity raises your risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, arthritis and a long list of other...
The Fastest Growing Cancer

The Fastest Growing Cancer

Apr 11, 2014 by

Researchers were shocked when they analyzed recent cancer statistics. They found that the incidence of one sinister type of cancer has expanded eightfold in the past five decades. Women are especially vulnerable. Are you unknowingly risking this cancerous danger? The study shows that among middle-aged men and women, 40 to 60 years old, the overall incidence of skin cancer jumped nearly eightfold between 1970 and 2009. "The most striking finding was among women in that age group," says researcher Jerry Brewer, M.D. "Women between 40 and 50 showed the highest rates of increase we've seen in any group so far." Medical experts are alarmed about increases in melanoma, which strikes...
The Deadly Germs In Your Kitchen

The Deadly Germs In Your Kitchen

Apr 10, 2014 by

When restaurant workers use poor hygiene, you’re at risk for food poisoning. But Swiss research shows that a contaminated tool in your own kitchen can put you in just as much danger from drug-resistant bacteria. The source of the drug-resistant E. coli in your home is raw chicken and turkey. The scientists found that after handling raw poultry, your hands and your cutting boards can remain contaminated with bacteria. "The spread of multi-drug resistant bacteria has been associated with the hospital setting, but these findings suggest that transmission of drug-resistant E. coli occurs both in the hospital and households," says researcher Andreas Widmer at the University Hospital in...
