(B.N. Frank) The bad news is that Dirty Electricity is almost everywhere and research has proven over and over again that it is harmful. The good news is that with some knowledge and effort, we can make some consumer choices in order to reduce our exposure and feel better.
(S.D. Wells) Trying to eat healthy and avoid all the major pitfalls of American food? Maybe you would like to sprinkle some aluminum, chlorine bleach, and ferrocyanide on your meal to add a little “flavor?” Sounds delicious. That’s what you’re getting when you use white, iodized, commercial table salt – the same salt that’s on nearly […]
(John P. Thomas) In the previous article about smartphone and tablet addiction, I discussed the addictive techniques used by app developers to get people hooked on using their websites.
(S.D. Wells) Only in America is every single disease and disorder diagnosed by medical doctors as genetic, meaning inherited from your parents’ and grandparents’ genes, even though nearly all of the most popular chronic illnesses, like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, strokes, arthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s barely existed just one century ago. So how did human genes change so quickly in just a few generations? They didn’t.
(Dr. Joseph Mercola) The way you breathe — whether fast or slow, shallow or deep — is intricately tied to your body as a whole, sending messages that affect your mood, your stress levels and even your immune system. Yet, breathing is unique in that it’s both easily ignored (becoming a basic background of your life) and revered at the same time. In the latter case, it’s almost instinctual to advise someone to “take a deep breath” if they’re feeling anxious, stressed or fearful.
(Ralph Flores) Phthalates are an interesting substance. They are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. They are found in literally everything: household cleaners to food packaging to fragrance, cosmetics and personal-care products all contain phthalates.
(Arjun Walia) Lucid Dreaming is a state of dreaming where you can control your dreams, and sort of create as you go. It is a fascinating topic, and has long been spoken of in the realms of philosophy. But in recent years as scientific technology has developed, studies have allowed humanity to view what’s happening in the brain while a lucid dream is occurring.
(Janine Acero) Unicorns are mythical creatures, but its namesake plant has been known and gathered for centuries for its medicinal properties that are all but a myth.
(Catherine J. Frompovich) Ever since I completed my healthcare studies years ago, I have become more acutely aware of the role various unsuspecting ingredients in all types of edibles play in human physiology but, most of all, unknown allergic reactions, which often can lead to related health problems. I learned a human body can experience and display any one, or more, of about a thousand allergic-type reactions! Hives probably are the most common reactions one thinks of.
(Marianna Pochelli, N.D.) Science is increasingly suggesting a link between happiness and health.
(David Williams) Cloning has been – and probably always will be – one of the most important scientific discoveries made by humans. It has been a major fascination for at least half a dozen generations now, even if it may never be used directly on people because of the social, political, moral, and ethical concerns surrounding it.
(Edsel Cook) The human brain is hiding superpowers within its left anterior temporal lobe. Near-perfect memory, echolocation, “sight” beyond sight, and something that might have inspired the idea of telekinesis can be accessed through easy means. An article in Psychology Today covered how you can tap these dormant mental powers.
(Dr. Mercola) The shocking film “Genetically Modified Children” unveils the horrors of decades of chemical-intensive agricultural practices in Argentina, where the majority of crops are genetically modified (GM) and routinely doused in dangerous agrochemicals, and the chokehold big tobacco companies such as Philip Morris and chemical and seed giants have on poverty-stricken farmers desperate to earn a living.
(Edsel Cook) The old adage of “mind over matter” is true, according to the results of a Hungarian study. Their findings proposed that most attention-related body sensations take their cues from psychological stimuli from the central nervous system (CNS) rather than from the peripheral nervous system (PNS.)
(Ralph Flores) Being grateful is an attitude usually associated with emotions, but according to experts, the attitude produces tangible benefits to a person’s well-being.
