(Vicki Batts) YouTube’s mass censorship is still underway, as more conservatives, libertarians and anyone else who stands in the way of the leftist cult from pushing their propaganda are having their channels taken down left and right. YouTube’s unceremonious account terminations seem to be yielding two responses: Horror, from those who understand that this behavior is disgustingly authoritarian — and applause from the useful idiots who erroneously believe that it’s okay to silence dissenting opinions, as long as it fits their political agenda.
(Isabelle Z.) Cardiovascular disease can be frightening, and it’s understandable that those who have it want to do everything in their power to keep it under control. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they need to take on the risks of prescription drugs. A study published in the American Journal of Physiology – Heart and Circulatory Physiology shows that supplementing with dietary nitrate from beetroot juice is a viable alternative.
(Vicki Batts) Essential oils are gaining in popularity, finally beginning to get much-deserved recognition for their health benefits. But with so many options, it can be hard to narrow down which oils are the best fit for your needs. And when you’re prepping a survival kit, less is often more — especially when space is limited. So, here is a short list of some great essential oils to select for your survival kit (and your everyday medicine cabinet, too).
(Vicki Batts) Are children in the United States being over-medicated? According to some recent statistics, it surely looks that way. Over a million children six years of age or under are prescribed a psychiatric medication. Overall, more than eight million kids in America are on some sort of psychotropic drug — and the medical establishment is hardly batting an eye.
(Jessica Dolores) You’ll never know when disaster will strike. When it does, though, are you medically prepared to handle any type of situation?
(Ethan Huff) A group of anti-white blacks and browns, as well as a few self-hating whites, have reportedly launched an openly racist magazine at the University of Texas, San Antonio (UTSA), the title of which couldn’t be clearer in its intent: No Whites Allowed (NWA).
(Jessica Dolores) People get depressed for a number of reasons: They feel someone they love has let them down; they lack friends and company; they’re in dire financial straits…the list can go on and on.
(Isabelle Z.) “You are what you eat” might be an overused phrase, but there’s quite a bit of truth to it, particularly when it comes to your brain. According to a paper published in the journal Physiology, the signals from your gut to your brain have a strong influence on your behaviors and emotions, especially during threatening events.
(Isabelle Z.) You’ve probably heard by now that antibiotics can seriously impact your gut microbiome, but it turns out that this action is not just limited to antibiotics. Now, scientists from Germany’s European Molecular Biology Laboratory have found that many drugs that target human cells rather than bacteria can cause changes in microbiome composition as well.
(Isabelle Z.) One of the hottest topics being debated in bioethics right now is the concept of conceiving a child using the sperm or egg of a dead person. For example, a man’s frozen sperm could be used after his death for in vitro fertilization or artificial insemination, or a woman’s frozen eggs could be used to create a child using IVF and the resultant embryo could be implanted into another woman’s womb. Not surprisingly, this approach is being met with a lot of ethical and legal questions.
(Karen Berrios) I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” It seems that there are many situations in life that can be represented by this. One of which is the connection between gut health and thyroid health. A healthy gut supports a healthy thyroid, and vice versa. The reverse is also true: problems in the gut create problems with your thyroid health, and low thyroid function can create problems in your gut.
(Derek Henry) There have been many trends through the years for health enthusiasts, and although many of these ideas are half-baked, every once in a while one comes along that has some teeth to it and can actually legitimately change a person’s life.
(Jessica Dolores) Ever wondered why your feet are killing you, even if you don’t have a sprain, or any sign of injury? It could be because you’ve been wearing closed shoes the whole day, and your feet have no chance to “breathe.” A new study by Harvard University researchers Nicholas Holowka and Daniel E. Liebermann showed that flat foot, which hampers movement because of reduced stiffness in the longitudinal arch (LA), is rare among people who go barefoot regularly.
(Zoey Sky) Have you ever noticed how your kids forget everything else when they’re watching TV? Don’t wait until they’re addicted to it before you do something about their TV habits.
(Jessica Dolores) Do you know that some of the everyday things we take for granted are teeming with toxins that harm our health?
