According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 5.5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. Beginning with mild cognitive impairment – including memory loss – this form of dementia has Western medicine baffled. If only they knew more about the power of nutrition – especially how B vitamins can help reduce the risk of brain disorders.
A colossal “sea of plastic” was discovered last month in the Caribbean, with bunched-up bottles and bags stretching for miles.
It reminded one Israeli environmental entrepreneur of the polluted Haifa Bay and Kishon River — with all of its petrochemicals.
“All the plastics, they stay for hundreds of years inside the water. We are the only solution for the Caribbean that can process all the organic waste together, and you don’t have to separately sort it,” said Yuval Tamir.
Knowing appropriate dosages is important to practitioners and patients because dosages are mission critical for achieving therapeutic effects. Estimating dosages is something we all must do and the most basic thing we do that with is our water intake. What is the right amount of water (dosage) a person should drink a day? What dosage of sun? These are important questions that doctors often answer in a wrong way.
The world’s first magnetic resonance instrument (MRI) built specially for examining premature and older infants has been installed and tested on six patients at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. The babies sleep comfortably while held in a soft brace during the scan and do not need to be anesthetized.
We live in a very appearance-conscious world, and anything you don’t like about your body or think of as an imperfection can eat away at your self-confidence. Hence, the vast popularity of so many forms of plastic surgery. Of course, with these procedures come multiple risks including anesthesia complications, scarring, and blood clots. Yet hundreds of thousands of people sign on for them every year anyway. And now there is new evidence that for one type of cosmetic surgery, you may be putting yourself in danger of a cancer diagnosis as well.
Pancreatic cancer – the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths for men and women in the United States – carries a poor prognosis, with a five-year survival rate that currently hovers around a grim 5 percent. (conventionally speaking)
Kenneth Meshoe, a member of South African parliament who experienced apartheid first-hand and is familiar with the reality in Israel, condemns those who compare the Jewish state to an apartheid regime.
One of the many lies that anti-Israel activists try to spread is that Israel is an “apartheid state,” despite the fact that Israelis of all religious and ethnic backgrounds share equal rights and opportunity.
As the facts on the ground in Israel attest, this accusation is completely fabricated and unfounded.
The United Nations’ mission is to maintain international peace and security. Watch this entertaining satire of how outrageously ineffectual the UN is as an international organization.
Since its founding in 1945, the United Nations’ central mission has been the maintenance of international peace and security.
Another year is in the books! And with it, many thousands of new research studies. Here are five important lessons we learned about nutrition, as we scoured the research for you:
1) The sugar industry continues its hijinks
A study dating from December of 2016 suggests that industry-funded sugar research may be more likely to show favorable results for sugar. This confirms something you probably already knew as an Examine.com reader, which is that published research isn’t necessarily true just because it’s peer-reviewed.
As we celebrate our 5-year anniversary, we thought it would be fun to look back at the last 5 years in research.…
Low-carb. Red meat. Sugar. Paleo.
Those are complex topics, but you might not be able to tell from all the frenzied and simplistic arguments on either side.
