Energize your cells to shrink fat—literally
If you struggle with weight issues despite sticking to a reasonably healthy diet and regular exercise routine, it’s time you got in on this little secret. It isn’t your fault. The standard American diet has made you the victim of a tragic nutrient deficiency that could otherwise shrink fat cells.
The unseen damage of vitamin deficiencies: Sacrificing longevity
When it comes to supplements, most doctors say forget them. But nutrition science ignores the fact that most vitamins and minerals are not only needed to maintain daily health, they’re also required for processes that impact longevity. If you’re not taking in enough of the ones on this list, it’s your lifespan that gets cheated…
Could a resveratrol supplement fight Lyme disease?
Not to sound paranoid, but my biggest concern about being outdoors isn’t snakes, it’s ticks. More than 475,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported each year in the U.S. Though early antibiotic therapy can help, a few plant extracts found to kill the bacteria may hold more promise…

Potato soup or toxic soap?
Each time I bring up the potato’s less than stellar qualities, it upsets some folks. I know you love your potatoes. I did too. But the science says that eating too much of this vegetable is just not good. Think Leaky gut, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome…
Cordyceps: Superfood or Brain-hijacking fungus
Mushrooms are powerful botanicals. Some are more popular or well-known than others, but at the moment, almost everyone is hearing about one fungus in particular: Cordyceps. Here’s what you should know about cordyceps’ history with (hopefully not the last of) us…
I gave up ONE food and my high BP vanished
I still remember the last visit with the doctor I saw for my blood pressure problems. She took my blood pressure and then matter-of-factly told me: “I guess your high blood pressure is gone.” And I was taking exactly zero medication. She didn’t know why, but I did. I had given up…
Why colonoscopies are less effective at finding cancer and saving lives
Colonoscopy was hailed as the procedure that could end colorectal cancer by reducing risk and death as much as 70 percent. But disappointing results from a large trial might make it hard to justify the risk and expense of this form of screening when simpler, less invasive strategies are available.
8 Chemopreventive foods: The future of cancer therapy
Have you heard of chemopreventive agents? They can be synthetic (like pharmaceuticals) or natural compounds, like those found in foods. They help fight cancer by putting a big kink in cancer’s molecular pathway. Here are the strongest contenders to put to work…
