 'A March 4, 2015 issue of Time magazine report on heart health featured a Finnish study that concluded men on statin drugs for six years had a 46% increased risk for developing diabetes. A Time response from a doctor interviewed left me cold, because it’s based on the conventional medical myth that sells statin drugs.'

'The history of medical marijuana and its use for epilepsy is a curious one. The marijuana plant, cannabis sativa, has been a part of folk medicine since antiquity and it has been used in Western medicine since the 19th century. 

One of its early uses was to control epileptic seizures. An obvious drawback, however, was that it was psychoactive -- it made its users "high." It was these psychoactive effects of cannabis that led to its being banned in most countries in the early 20th century. 

In the 1930s and 1940s, research chemists began to extract various pure compounds -- called "cannabinoids" -- from the cannabis plant and discovered that some extracts made you high while others didn't.'

'Despite decades of research and thousands of studies attesting to its health-promoting properties, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) remains virtually unknown to the medical professional and the public.
This inexpensive compound demonstrates potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, has been shown to relieve painful musculoskeletal and urinary conditions, and may even fight Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. 

Unfortunately, its widespread acceptance and use has been stymied by the FDA and their allies in the pharmaceutical industry.'

'Researchers from UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine have determined that consuming a milk fermented with probiotics changes the brain activity of women.

The UCLA medical researchers divided 36 healthy women into three groups. One group was given a milk fermented with probiotics twice a day. Another group was given a milk without the probiotics. The other group was given no milk product.

Before the study began the women underwent extensive brain MRI studies and brain activity tasking response analyses. Then the women consumed the probiotic or placebo milk for four weeks, followed by repeated testing.'

 honeysoyroundup

'A recent study  from Boston University and Abraxis LLC discovered troubling levels of glyphosate in honey – including “organic” honey. Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Monsanto’s toxic Roundup herbicide. The researchers tested five different types of food products for contamination: honey, corn and pancake syrup, soy milk, tofu, and soy sauce. All samples were taken from metropolitan  Philadelphia grocery stores. 

The most shocking results were found in honey.  Specifically, out of 69 samples, including 11 taken from organic honey, the researchers found: 62 percent of conventional honey and 45 percent of organic honey contained glyphosate at unsafe levels.'

'His name is Dr. Jack Wolfson, a fully trained and certified cardiologist who eventually left Big Pharma and the AMA’s official standard of care interventions behind after seeing that both approaches usually worsened patients’ conditions or at best did nothing to resolve the issues creating heart disease.


His transformation was also influenced by his relationship to his wife, Heather, a chiropractor. Chiropractors are known for their holistic approaches including supplements, diet, and sometimes acupuncture. The whole field of chiropractics had to endure chronic attacks from the AMA, which kept labeling it dangerous until chiropractors won their case against the AMA for violating anti-trust (monopoly) law in the 1970s.'

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published the results of a ground-breaking study that found that meditation appears to provide as much relief from some anxiety and depression symptoms as antidepressants.'

Vitamin B12 Is Vital; Here’s How to Make Sure You’re Not Deficient

ED NOTE: The Prilosec packet is an example of what inhibits B-12 assimilation because it inhibits the stomach acid needed to digest it, as was discovered in a recent study.

'Vitamin B-12 deficiencies are often attributed to vegetarians who don’t supplement. But meat eaters who use pharmaceutical stomach acid reducing drugs, whether prescribed or over-the-counter (OTC), are also in danger of becoming vitamin B-12 deficient. That and a lack of probiotic gut microbes are precursors of vitamin B12 deficiencies regardless of diet.

B-12 deficiency is often considered a silent epidemic because it is usually under diagnosed in the face of several symptoms, which include chronic fatigue, cardiovascular, and neurological disorders that are misdiagnosed and lead dangerously to wrong interventions.'

'Losing as little as 30 minutes of sleep per day on weekdays can have long-term consequences for body weight and metabolism, a new study finds. The results will be presented Thursday, March 5, at ENDO 2015, the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in San Diego.

 “While previous studies have shown that short sleep duration is associated with obesity and diabetes, we found that as little as 30 minutes a day sleep debt can have significant effects on obesity and insulin resistance at follow up,” said lead study author Professor Shahrad Taheri, MBBS, PhD, professor of medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar, in Doha. “This reinforces earlier observations that sleep loss is additive and can have metabolic consequences.”'
