Before you pay for the juice cleanse, learn how your body actually rids itself of harmful toxins for absolutely free. The American Chemical Society's video series explains how our very own bodies are equipped to help keep us clear of toxins.
With a government creating misguided policies using false media narratives about pain doctors and patients(1), the opportunity is open for groups selling "natural" analgesic alternatives, but the public should beware. If it is an alternative to medicine, usually it either does not work at all or, if it does, its effects are unknown.
I want to share how the fruit fly has solved a problem that continues to vex Amazon and Netflix, making the recommendations we encounter every day we use e-commerce. And they do it better!
It's because of the stem cells.
Cornell University researchers determined that for testicular cancer, those cells are more capable of responding to chemotherapy, and they do so better than stem cells in other forms of cancer. And this effectiveness takes place with testicular cancer even after it metastasizes.
The American Heart Association's new hypertension guidelines are about treating patients at risk for cardiovascular disease. It is not about the 50% of patients now declared hypertensive, even though that is what the mainstream media reports.
A review paper (1) recently found that organic crop yields are 19-25% lower than conventional systems.
Obesity is hard on knees. It's well-known that excess weight can lead to arthritis in the weight-bearing joints — knees and hips. Less understood is the risk of knee dislocations and subsequent vascular damage, which is also increased in the obese and morbidly obese populations.
New research is showing compromising circumstances in the bedroom and being a female in public play a role in who we choose to give CPR.
1. Medicare Part D was controversial during its passage yet now is regarded as a success - and it may be the future of Obamacare. Making that case was no less than a Senator who was against Medicare Part D at the time, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, whom I met at the American Action Forum meeting.
The answer to the question is not an obvious one. You might think malaria or malnutrition? But, no - the answer is pneumonia. Pneumonia kills ~ 1 million children under the age of five around the world - more than HIV/AIDS, diarrhea and malaria combined. However, it does not get the same attention as other infections that are a challenge for global health. As November 12 was World Pneumonia Day, some attention on this relatively unrecognized killer is in order.
If the fear mongers about GMO foods don't get their way, new strains of potatoes genetically engineered to contain beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol (vitamins A and E) could potentially assuage vitamin A and E deficiencies in areas of the developing world (such as some parts of Africa) where potatoes are staple foods.
It’s that time of year again. People around you are getting the sniffles and experts are beginning to speculate on this year’s prevalent strains of flu.
Volunteer tourism, or voluntourism, is an emerging trend of travel linked to “doing good”. Yet these efforts to help people and the environment have come under heavy criticism – I believe for good reason.
Voluntourists’ ability to change systems, alleviate poverty or provide support for vulnerable children is limited. They simply don’t have the skills. And they can inadvertently perpetuate patronizing and unhelpful ideas about the places they visit.
Women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancers are commonly treated post-surgery for five years with drugs that interfere with the hormone-tumor interaction. But sometimes the cancer reoccurs, and the initial tumor and lymph node status seems to be important in determining who would be at the greatest risk of recurrence.

From the data that told you vegetarian mothers create drug-addled children we now learn that vegetarian fathers are depressed. Is it the kids or the diet?
It is not every day when the most exciting scientific story of the year comes across your desk. But, this week that is exactly what happened. A team of researchers from Germany, Austria, and Italy gave a young boy with the genetic disease junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB) new skin cells that saved his life.
Over the past few years the whisky-drinking world has been introduced to several new products that claim to produce high-quality liquor in just a fraction of the time usually required to age single malt spirits. Instead of maturing the whisky for a decade or more in oak barrels, some distillers say they can replicate the quality and taste in a matter of weeks.
