Mediterranean Diet and Heart Health 1

Among the reasons that skipping breakfast is linked to coronary heart disease is that ‘skipping meals is associated with excess body weight, hypertension, insulin resistance, and elevated fasting lipid concentrations,” which are factors that collectively raise heart risk. Such fasting can also lead to increases in triglycerides, free fatty acids and LDL-cholesterol, as well as decrease HDL-cholesterol, which is necessary in sufficient quantities for healthy cholesterol balance.

Garlic Helps Lead detoxification 1

However, a study published last year in Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology demonstrated that garlic is a natural detoxifier of lead. The study showed that garlic was more effective at decreasing clinical manifestations of lead poisoning, such as irritability and headache, and improving mean systolic blood pressure than a standard chelation drug known as d-penicillamine, Garlic was observed to be as effective as the chelation drug at lowering lead concentrations in the blood and had fewer side effects than the drug, leading the researchers to conclude that garlic seemed safer clinically and was ideal for the treatment of “mild-to-moderate” lead poisoning.

GM Crops Disrupt Immune Systems 2

A 10-year Norwegian study concluded last year that genetically modified corn and soy containing toxic proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis, which kills larval insect pests, produced significant changes in the digestive systems, immune systems, and major organs of rats, mice, pigs and salmon. The researchers disagreed with claims that GM foods can’t do damage because all genes are broken down beyond recognition in the gut. They found that genes can be transferred through the intestinal wall into the blood and have been identified in blood, muscle tissue, and the liver.

The Vaccine Research Library (VRL) contains a collection of articles and article links from mainstream medical journals that by design documents problems associated with vaccines. In addition to sections on individual vaccines, readers can find material on cell lines, adjuvants, and additives. There are selections about “special circumstances,” such as vaccines for healthcare workers and those in the military. Articles published on vaccine injuries—such as demyelinating diseases and seizures—are also in the collection.

Ketogenic Diets 2

Ketogenic diets are powerful, metabolically speaking. Switching to a high-fat, low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet can eliminate heartburn, improve cardiac risk factors, and reverse the elevated blood pressure, high blood sugar, and dyslipidemia associated with metabolic syndrome.

Probiotics Reduce infant Skin Problems 3

A new study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology shows that probiotic supplementation during pregnancy and breast-feeding significantly reduces the risk of infant eczema. According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, eczema affects between 10 and 20 percent of all infants, resulting in red, itchy skin patches or rashes. Three out of four children with eczema go on to develop asthma or hay fever.

Mediterranean Diet and Heart Health 1

They found, compared to those or the control diet, the risk of major cardiovascular events was reduced by 30 and 28 percent respectively for those on the Mediterranean diet of either olive oil or olive oil and mixed nuts. The researchers’ concluded: “Among persons at high cardiovascular risk, a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil or nuts reduced the incidence of major cardiovascular events.”

Curcuminoids 2

Curcuminoids are natural phenols found within the spice turmeric. Research shows that these phytocompounds demonstrate the ability to treat certain diseases including triple negative breast cancer, and reduce heart attack after coronary artery bypass surgery.
Curcuminoids also show cardio-protective effects, such as limiting myocardial infarction after coronary bypass surgery. Researchers believe that this cardioprotective effect is due to the ability of the curcuminoids to decrease proinflammatory cytokines during bypass surgery.
