Most people are aware that eating too much sugar can cause high blood glucose, insulin spikes and obesity. It can also elevate the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer. However, excess glucose can also lead to nutrient deficiencies that impact the levels of vitamins and minerals that are able to reach the cells.
We've previously explored the importance of testosterone in depth. It provides energy and zest for life, increases muscle mass and decreases fat, and improves libido and sex performance. As your testosterone levels drop over time, all of those benefits do a 180 and go into the negative. In other words, you start aging at an accelerated rate. Today, however, we're going to look at some different aspects that weren't covered in that newsletter. We're also going to examine the issue of free VS bound testosterone in more detail.
A study has just been released that confirms what Savers have been warned about for years. I have written extensively about the dangers of the osteoporosis drugs developed, marketed and sold by the pharmaceutical industry.
The harmful and paradoxical impact of these drugs on bones has been shown in the results of several experiments, and those findings are underscored and further explained by a new study that was just published.
Thinking about the types of food you consume can make huge difference in your health and lifestyle. Organic food is not only more nutritious but it can actually save you money in the long run, when you factor in healthcare cost over the years.
There are over a million types of fungi covering the planet and 270 that have healing properties that we know of. We share the earth with twenty five percent mycelium which are like the tree roots of mushrooms. It turns out that even the common mushrooms we consume are powerful disease fighters, anti-inflammatory, super tasty, a great source of vitamins/minerals and have the potential to save the world.
In April of 2014, Academics Review released its organic marketing report – and proceeded to blast the organic foods industry. The report, which received extensive coverage by the mainstream media, accused the industry of creating false and misleading perceptions and indulging in intentionally deceptive marketing. (Wait, until you see what Monsanto is doing – keep reading)
My eyes darted to the tracing on the cardiac monitor. The gaps between my patient’s heartbeats lengthened. The plodding rhythm meant that blood, oozing from beneath his fractured skull, was crowding out his brain.
He was 22, and someone had bludgeoned him with a baseball bat in his sleep. His wife, lying beside him, died during the assault. His four-year-old son witnessed everything.
Most of us grew up learning that there are nine planets in our solar system. Back in 2006 that all changed, when Pluto was demoted from being labeled a proper planet to its new classification as a dwarf planet, leaving just eight true planets in our celestial neighborhood. Now, a group of scientists says Pluto should definitely be added back to the planet list — oh, and that there are over 100 other objects in our solar system that should also be called planets.
Type 2 diabetes can be reversed in just four months by cutting calories, exercising and keeping glucose under control, a trial has shown.
The trial involved creating a personalized exercise regime for each participant and reducing their calories by between 500 and 750 a day. Participants also met regularly with a nurse and dietician to track progress and continued to take medication and insulin to manage their blood sugar levels.
Several countries are developing nanoweapons that could unleash attacks using mini-nuclear bombs and insect-like lethal robots.
While it may be the stuff of science fiction today, the advancement of nanotechnology in the coming years will make it a bigger threat to humanity than conventional nuclear weapons, according to an expert. The U.S., Russia and China are believed to be investing billions on nanoweapons research.
