'Psychological health is deeply affected by physiological choices - one more reason to "think before you eat." Could the bout of the blues you’re dealing with possibly be linked to the pasta you had for last night’s dinner? 

According to new research, absolutely. While the importance of consuming wholesome, unprocessed foods has almost become common knowledge in recent years, the average American’s diet is still predominantly (70%) made up of processed junk. 

A number of factors are to blame for this (finances, emotional cravings, physiological addiction, etc…), but it’s a less-than-stellar habit that needs to be curbed, for the SAD diet is contributing to a number of diseases of affluence.' 


Secrets Of Beer Exposed

“Ingredient labeling on food products and non-alcoholic beverages is required by the Food and Drug Administration. But a whole other federal agency regulates beer, and not very well. The Department of Treasury – the same folks who collect your taxes – oversees alcoholic beverages. That probably explains why we know more about what’s in a can of Coke than a can of Bud. You can also thank the alcohol industry, which has lobbied for years against efforts to require ingredient labeling.”

 ~ Michele Simon, a public health lawyer and author of Appetite for Profit

So what ingredients are in your beer? It’s very possible that if you drink some of the most common beers made and/or sold in America, you’re drinking a variety of chemical food additives, which may include:

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
Propylene Glycol (an ingredient found in anti-freeze)
Calcium Disodium EDTA (made from formaldehyde, sodium cayanide, and Ethylenediamine)
Many different types of sulfites and anti-microbial preservatives (linked to allergies and asthma)
Natural Flavors (can come from anything natural including a beavers anal gland)
High Fructose Corn Syrup
GMO Sugars – Dextrose, Corn Syrup
Caramel Coloring (Class III or IV made from ammonia and classified as a carcinogen)
FD&C Blue 1 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
FD&C Red 40 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
FD&C Yellow 5 (Made from petroleum, linked to allergies, asthma and hyperactivity)
Insect-Based Dyes: carmine derived from cochineal insects to color their beer.
Animal Based Clarifiers: Findings include isinglass (dried fish bladder), gelatin (from skin, connective tissue, and bones), and casein (found in milk)
Foam Control: Used for head retention; (glyceryl monostearate and pepsin are both potentially derived from animals)
BPA (Bisphenol A is a component in many can liners and it may leach into the beer. BPA can mimic the female hormone estrogen and may affect sperm count, and other organ functions.)
Carrageenan (linked to inflammation in digestive system, IBS and considered a carcinogen in some circumstances)

Top 5 Cannabinoids, in Whole Plant Cannabis Oil, that Heal Your Body and Mind

" Did you know that there are 480 chemical compounds in the cannabis plant? We don’t know yet how all of them affect the human body, but the more researchers look, the more medicinal benefits they find. In fact, Dr. Abrams, chief of oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and integrative medicine specialist at UCSF points out: “if marijuana were discovered in the Amazon today, it’d be front-page news worldwide, a miracle drug.”'

Health Maven Note: The study examined was in vitro (lab glass petri dish) and not in vivo (live animal or human). These studies often precede in vivo studies if they have merit. But it's doubtful the cancer industry would follow up on anything that would hamper chemo sales or radiation treatments. So realize the limited importance of this data and don't conclude that you'll cure cancer with heavy olive oil use. BUT - it will certainly help prevent or be useful in conjunction with any other natural cancer remedy.

Extra-virgin olive oil may rapidly kill off cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.

'Extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) already has a reputation as a superfood. It contains an abundance of antioxidants that are proven to confer health benefits.

Studies show that one phenolic compound in EVOO – oleocanthal (OC) – provides many of the health benefits we see from diets rich in EVOO like the Mediterranean diet.'

While there may be different foods lists, they’re all based on principles of deprivation, external rules, and focus on weight loss.
Yes, I’m sure you could lose weight on any popular diet out there. Yet, I’m taking a stand against diets because of the negative side effects – physical and mental – that ultimately leaves you frustrated, overwhelmed, and blaming yourself.'

'Over a hundred years ago Congress outlawed black currants. Today this forbidden fruit is making a comeback and may help improve your mood and brain power.

In 1911 the U.S. Congress outlawed the commercial cultivation of currants. Black currants quickly became known as the "forbidden fruit." And Americans were deprived of one of the healthiest foods on earth.

Now researchers have found that black currants (Ribes nigrum) are good for keeping our brains young and agile.'


Everything is Fake: Top 40 Pieces of Fakery in Our World

'Everything is fake in our society today – or at least a great many things are. Our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fakery, fraud, facades, mirages, propaganda and brainwashing. The good thing though is that once you awaken to the deception, you can use it as a tool for raising your consciousness. 

The idea that virtually everything is fake can be empowering rather than depressing. Sure, we’ve all felt overwhelmed, sad, angry and impotent at times when we’ve seen just how easily our (mis)leaders can fool the masses with sophistry and empty rhetoric, but they’ve all been placed there to challenge us to wake up more quickly and fully, and reclaim our world.'

How Essential Oils Can Help Improve Your Life

'Scents can have a powerful influence on your well-being. Aromatherapy, which uses concentrated essences of various botanicals, allows you to harness the olfactory power of plants for healing on many levels.

Essential oils carry biologically active volatile compounds in a highly concentrated form that can provide therapeutic benefits in very small amounts.

Quality is of the essence here. First of all, what we're talking about here is pure, therapeutic grade essential oils from plants, NOT synthetic fragrance oils or perfumes, which can be toxic and typically contain allergenic compounds.'

Why Most Doctors Are Dead Wrong About Osteoporosis

'What if everything your doctor told you about osteoporosis and osteopenia was wrong?'

'What if osteoporosis were not the primary cause of fractures in aging populations? What if both the definitions of osteoporosis and osteopenia used to justify pharmaceutical treatment were both misleading and age inappropriate?

These are questions we explored in a previous exposé titled, "Osteoporosis Myth: The Dangers of High Bone Mineral Density," wherein we explored evidence showing the so-called "osteoporosis epidemic" is not an evidence-based concept but a manufactured one designed to serve the interests of a growing industrial medical/pharmaceutical complex.'

'While any discussion of the "chemtrail" phenomenon today is immediately labeled conspiracy theory, a new study provides evidence that a global covert program is underway, made possible through political, commercial, and government interests working in collusion to release extremely toxic material into the atmosphere ostensibly to "combat global warming."

'This documentary 'On The Back Of A Tiger', can, among other things, forever destroy the scientific basis of all vaccinations. The documentary being made, which I am supporting, is the most important project of my professional life of more than 60 years and my over 40 years of struggle to end the horrors of vaccinations. 

If it receives sufficient distribution through grass root's efforts, it will destroy entirely the scientific basis for vaccinations and change the paradigms in biology, medicine, and education forever, and for the betterment of our progeny.'


Rosemary Helps Increase Sugar Metabolism

'Many years of collecting animal data have shown that rosemary could play a role in helping reduce blood sugar levels and initiate weight loss.

As a matter of fact, a mouse study showed that adding rosemary leaf extract to a high fat diet actually resulted in weight loss and not the expected increase in body fat and weight.

But rosemary’s exact mechanism of action was not known until recently. A study published this year in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry shows that rosemary may activate energy sensing molecules inside cells, leading to the activation of fat and sugar catabolic pathways.'
