Your liver is responsible for processing toxins in the body, so you’ll want to keep it working at its best. Sometimes, though, diet or lifestyle can catch up to us, and, if that happens, a liver cleanse becomes necessary. With a cleanse, you’ll certainly get rid of all that toxic buildup, but there are lots
Toxins are all around us, and while we already know how harmful they can be to the body, have you stopped to think about what they can do to the brain? Studies suggest neurotoxins impede brain development in kids, something that might also lead to ADHD, autism, or Parkinson’s later in life.   Keeping
With each new published study, independently conducted and peer-reviewed, alerting us that glyphosate is more toxic than we thought, poses a more serious health threat than was previously believed, the reaction is the same. Monsanto denies the facts, attacks the scientists and directs the media and the public to its own industry-funded studies as “proof”
Carrageenan is a food additive commonly seen in commercial yogurts, dairy-free milk, and other processed foods. It is a terrific emulsifier and thickening agent, and it does have natural origins. Nonetheless, carrageenan isn’t free from health concerns, with most of its issues relating to effects on the gastrointestinal system. Isolated from seaweed, carrageenan is a
Given what we are now exposed to through our food, air, and water, detoxification has become a modern-day necessity. Without the daily activation of ancient, effective physiological pathways designed to remove environmental toxins, we are bound to get sick. So, what are some simple, effective ways we rid our body of its daily toxic burden?
The scientific literature indicates that there are at least two dozen adverse health effects linked to exposure to mineral oil, a crude oil derivative. New research indicates these fat-soluble hydrocarbons are accumulating to disturbing levels in our bodies, and affecting newborns by contaminating breast milk. How did they get there? Mineral oil is legally allowed to
Neonicotinoids, the pesticides linked to the mass die-off of bees, are now found in stream and well samples across the U.S.. These widely used pesticides aren’t just killing the bees and butterflies. They’re also killing insects, which are critical to the food chain. But what are they doing to us? U.S. regulatory agencies have set
With sales of foods labeled gluten free now reaching over 6 billion dollars a year, something truly profound is happening to the way in which Americans are perceiving the role of wheat in their diets. Once celebrated as the very poster-child of the health food movement, folks are increasingly rejecting this “king of grains,” and
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health. If you are like me, you hesitate at the checkout counter whenever the cashier asks you “would you like your receipt”? If your inner accountant is alive and well, you will find yourself wanting to keep it, which means touch
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.
