You need to be concerned if Risperdal is part of your medical regimen.  Quote: "I will now quote extensively from a classic article written at, by Paula J Caplan, PhD. The title of her article (10/30/2015) is “Diagnosisgate: A Major Media Blackout Mystery”:  “Until their identities are widely exposed, and their motives are known, the full story of the [Risperdal] harm will never be known. It is astonishing that despite six stories in the major media — including a recent, groundbreaking Huffington Post series — and the filing of numerous lawsuits, the names and conduct of the culprits have consistently been omitted.”  “The story that has been called ‘Diagnosisgate’ starts in 1995, when the man widely considered the world’s most important psychiatrist split a payoff of nearly one million dollars with two colleagues in exchange for doing two patently unethical and illegal things that created the groundwork for a major drug company to market falsely one of the most dangerous psychoactive drugs [Risperdal].”

This is an incredible finding.  Quote: "The power of natural plant compounds as cancer prevention and treatment agents is truly astounding.  Excitingly, as scientists delve deeper into research, they’re discovering these natural substances may provide protection above and beyond medications. One rising star in the realm of natural tumor treatment is berberine… Berberine is a compound extracted from the roots and stems of traditional herbs like the goldenseal plant, goldthread, tree turmeric, Oregon grape and phellodendron. Since most of these plants are native to countries like India and China, it’s no surprise that berberine has been used in traditional medicines for centuries. Now, scientific explorations have concluded that berberine suppresses the growth of tumor cells and halts their migration — exhibiting almost remarkable anti-cancer properties, particularly for colon and breast cancers (see research sources at the end of my post!)." 

Hopefully no one we know is taking these medications.   Quote: "If it’s not shocking enough that dementia kills more people than breast and prostate cancer combined, how about this… You may be taking a common medication right now that increases your risk of developing dementia by as much as 54 percent! To date, a few studies have raised a number of medications into the dementia-causing spotlight. You may want to take this list and have a look in your medicine cabinet…"

Good advice on how to avoid getting Alzheimer.

Thank to Charles for sharing this very interesting piece on a non-invasive solution for prostate health.  Quote: "A fascinating new study published in Precision Oncology has found that a combination of three plant-based nutrients “melts away” prostate cancer cells. The study, led by University of Texas researcher Stefano Tiziani, is entitled Combinatorial treatment with natural compounds in prostate cancer inhibits prostate tumor growth and leads to key modulations of cancer cell metabolism.  As described in the University of Texas newsletter, this breakthrough discovery allows people to “starve prostate cancer with what you eat for dinner.”

What about coconut oil?  Good for you or not?  This is a very interesting piece with suggests some medical studies may simply be flat wrong or the authors may be less than candid or incompetent.

This is very, very good advice.

This item addresses the reasons to never skip breakfast.

This fruit has a devastating effect on cancer.

This is something worth doing.   Quote: "Extra-virgin olive oil could help stave off or reduce the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, says a new study from Temple University.  Researchers from the Pennsylvania university found that mice whose diets were enriched with extra-virgin olive oil improved their memory and ability to learn compared to mice who didn’t have the oil in their diets, USA "

This study finds that aspirin does little to help control plaque.  Quote: "For decades, millions of people have taken a daily aspirin to reduce heart attacks and strokes by reducing blood clots. But a study from the University of Florida Health found that aspirin may be of little or no benefit for patients who already have plaque buildup in their arteries. Researchers studied the health histories of more than 33,000 people 45 years or older with coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease or peripheral vascular disease.  They found no benefit for those with atherosclerosis — hardening of the arteries — and found that although there was a small benefit for those who had suffered a previous heart attack or stroke, aspirin had no advantage among atherosclerosis patients who hadn't had a heart attack or stroke.  In fact, overall, the risk of cardiovascular death, heart attack and stroke was 10.7 percent among aspirin users and 10.5 percent for non-users.  Patients who enrolled in the nationwide study were at least 45 years old with coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease or peripheral vascular disease. Their medical data were collected between late 2003 and mid-2009"

Do you use mouth wash to freshen your breath?  If so, you need to read this. Quote: "Every time you rinse and gargle with mouthwash you’re washing out odor-causing bacteria from your mouth. Sure, you’ll have minty fresh breath, but you could be paying a higher price. That because when you take part in this daily dental habit you are interfering with your body’s natural production of a vital nutrient  that helps manage your blood pressure — nitric oxide (NO)."

A healthy lifestyle helps us prevent cancer. Quote: "Cancer is challenging; it is actually many diseases that are associated with scores of risk factors and causes, some of which we can control — environment and lifestyle — and others we cannot, like age and genetics.  Yet preventing cancer is not necessarily rocket science. In fact, research has shown that the majority of risk of developing cancer — and I’m speaking of cancers in general — is associated with environmental and lifestyle factors."

This piece says coffee and tea are good at protecting our livers from our western diet.  Quote: "To investigate the possible protective effects of coffee and tea, researchers examined data on more than 2,400 Dutch individuals age 45 or older who did not have liver disease. The investigators examined medical records, including results of abdominal and liver scans. They also analyzed responses to food and beverage questionnaires that asked about tea and coffee consumption."  And, "They found that frequent coffee drinkers had significantly lower risk for liver stiffness and less scarring regardless of their lifestyle and environment. Overall, frequent herbal tea and coffee drinking appeared to have a protective effect on the liver and prevent scarring among those who had not yet developed any obvious signs of liver disease, researchers said."

This item offers good suggestions on how to lower triglyceride levels.

Interesting isn't it what God has provided to help us stay healthy.

Quote: "Blue light from your phone can make you fat and cause diabetes.  That’s right — a new study has shown that the bright light from your smartphone can actually signal a cascade of insulin resistance, high blood sugar and increased body fat. For anyone trying to lose weight or beat diabetes, this is groundbreaking news… because it’s no longer just about which foods you eat and how much. Thanks to research at Northwestern University, we now know that your environment plays a major role in your metabolism and your risk for diabetes."

This item is right on target. Healthy eating leads to healthy lives.  Quote: "A few nights ago I was watching PBS NewsHour. Their guest was a professor of nutrition from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, David Eisenberg.  He was talking about a program he started called Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives and he revealed a fact I had heard before but had been a  little skeptical about… According to Professor Eisenberg, only about one-fifth of American medical schools require students to take a nutrition course. In fact he said, “Today, most medical schools in the United States teach less than 25 hours of nutrition over four years.”

A tidbit that should make coffee lovers happy.
