One of the world’s most popular herbicide–Roundup–is making its way back into the headlines in regards to its health and environmental effects. Monsanto, the producer of Roundup (glyphosate), claims this herbicide is safe; however, study after study from independent researchers is showing the exact opposite. A new research study is showing that small amounts of
There’s an epidemic in America that’s bound to make your head itch the moment you read about it. Just in time for back-to-school, there’s an outbreak of “super lice”. Because plain old ordinary lice weren’t bad enough, super lice don’t respond to the normal chemical treatments. Just like antibiotic-resistant infections, it seems that lice have
Sayer Ji, the author of “The Dark Side of Wheat,” discusses the emerging viewpoint that wheat represents a human species-specific intolerance that should be universally avoided. Some issues raised in the video 150+ adverse health effects associated with wheat consumption, as determined by biomedical research housed on the National Library of Medicine Wheat intolerance/toxicity does
Pans with a non-stick coating are convenient but new research suggests that the chemical used for the coating is extremely toxic and exposure on any level could prove dangerous to brain health, the reproductive system, and immune system. The Dangers of Non-Stick Coating DuPont, the chemical engineering giant, is responsible for the perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)
Patrick Roddie presented testimony at an EPA hearing on potential health effects of aircraft pollution on August 11, 2015. He documented how the rapidly increasing death toll from Alzheimer’s and respiratory failure matched a corresponding increase in artificially-nucleated persistent contrails – and demanded the EPA resume publishing results of metals in our rain and air.
Soda is one of the most popular beverages in the developed world, and many people are addicted to its sweet taste and fizzy texture. Not only does soda provide calories, these calories come in the form of refined sugar, namely mercury-laden high fructose corn syrup. Diet sodas are supposed to lessen the health effects of
A concerning new study finds that most of the breast milk samples tested contained artificial sweeteners. Why has this never been discovered until now and what are the implications to our most vulnerable populations? An article soon to be published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health on the presence of synthetic sweeteners in
Did you know that when you ingest or are injected with prescription drugs, your body doesn’t necessarily use everything? Excess drugs are excreted as waste material. That’s good news for your body since pharmaceuticals can be very hard on your system, it’s not good news for the ecosystem since these residues work their way into
Obesogens is an umbrella term given to the dozens of endocrine disruptors that play a role in obesity. Chemicals from plastics, like BPA, are known obesogens, and these chemicals pollute our waterways and pervade our homes. The effects of obesogens have been studied intensely over the past few years and the research shows that they
Bisphenol-A has seen its share of media attention, and none of it has been very positive. It’s a known endocrine disruptor still being used as a softening agent in plastics. You’re probably already aware that BPA disrupts reproductive health, which is contributing to hormonal imbalance in both women and men. BPA lines many aluminum cans
By: Carol Young | Top 10 Grocery Secrets – McDonald’s has a very complicated brand image: entirely unhealthy, yet an affordable option that is almost universally available. McDonald’s isn’t a place we go to get our nutritional needs met, and with most research connecting our Western/fast food diet directly to various diseases, such as diabetes,
Unknown to most consumers, cyanide is found in a wide range of vitamins and foods in a form known as cyanocobalamin. Fortunately the cyanide has a very low potential to do harm because it is organically bound to cobalamin (vitamin b12) — that is, as long as everything is working correctly and that person hasn’t
Fluoride was originally added to the water supply sometime around the end of World War II in an effort to improve overall dental health. Despite the well wishes, no one anticipated the physical health dangers. Now, more and more people are recognizing the effects, and one of those is how it damages the pineal gland.
Perchlorate is an environmental pollutant primarily associated with releases by defense contractors, military operations and aerospace programs, as it is a key ingredient in rocket fuel. It is now found contaminating conventional and organically grown food, alike. Perchlorate and the Post-Organic Era Perchlorate is an environmental pollutant primarily associated with releases by defense contractors,

Pollutants pervade almost every aspect of our environment. Air pollution is one of the biggest threats, and water pollution comes in at a very close second. Even the pollutants in our foods are contributing to a myriad of health concerns. Researchers believe external pollution may be implicated in cancer, obesity, and type 2 diabetes, among
