(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 […]

(Russel Davis) Natural essential oils extracted from citrus peels are notably effective in repelling mosquitoes, according to a recent study published in the Natural Product Research journal. As part of the study, a team of researchers at the Department of Pesticide Chemistry and Technology and the Department of Tropical Health at Alexandria University in Egypt air-dried peels of three various citrus species: Citrus reticulata L., C. reticulata chinase Blanco and C. sinensis Osbeck.
(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.
(Catherine J. Frompovich) Most of my research is based upon the work done by others and published online, for which I want to acknowledge that fact and also to thank them for their contributions to the knowledge pool regarding food, nutrition and human health.
(Zoey Sky) According to a study by researchers from the University of Oxford, there is “a direct link between physical contact and gut bacteria” in red-bellied lemurs. The scientists believe that their findings can be used to further research on human health and that the phenomenon is probably made possible “through ‘huddling’ behavior and touch.”
(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.
(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.
(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.
(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.
(Ralph Flores) For the most part, technology is a wonderful thing; still, it has its drawbacks. From blurry vision to a lack of sleep – technology is slowly being a pain in the neck.
