Whole grains can increase your lifespan, decrease diabetes, heart disease risk and more

By Devon: (NaturalNews) From every angle, the general population is starving, in desperate need of more than just food and empty, nutritionless calories. The supermarkets are full of empty-calorie food products that have been stripped of their nutrition. The void is real. It can be seen in the people's faces, passing by one another in the grocery aisles with blank stares. The nutrition just isn't there. It's hard to come by. You have to know where to look. For the most part, today's grains are commercially stripped of their nutrition, refined down to starchy remains.

Fructose causes reproductive problems, earlier death, study shows

By PF Louis: (NaturalNews) When fructose is discussed, it's usually not just about normal natural sugars in fruits like apples, pears and watermelons. It's usually about high-fructose corns syrup (HFCS).

It is ubiquitous in processed foods, especially sodas, because it packs more sweetness per gram than sugar and it's cheaper. And no matter how much food processors cover it up by labeling ingredients as "corn syrup," it's still HFCS.

Its effectiveness is once again reinforced in findings recently published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, where researchers note that components of the plant have the ability to potentially help stop metabolic disorders in their tracks.(1)

5 benefits of mulberries for skin, hair and health

Remarkably, in that brief period the hidden benefits of several common food products came to light. Coupled with scientific research and the trend toward organic foods, the health benefits of foods such as kale, blueberries, walnuts, salmon, avocados and mulberries have made them immensely popular.

Educated patients control diabetes better than trained physicians


The power to reverse type 2 diabetes begins with a well informed individual, someone self-empowered to make changes in their daily eating habits. A remarkable study from the University of Maryland has found that a physician's diabetes-management approach alone is ineffective and has no influence on an individual's behavioral changes. Counseling, on the other hand, helped patients ask questions, helping them try out new habits in their daily lifestyle.
