It's Time To Abandon Dangerous Folic Acid Fortification Programs and Stick To Folates
July 28, 2014 | Nutrition | M.Chan
It's an embarrassing fact, but more than half of dieticians think folic acid is naturally found in foods. It isn't and never was. Only folate is found in foods such as lentils, beans, spinach and other greens. The body does not metabolize folic acid in the same way it does folate. Researchers from the Institute of Food Research and Newcastle University have confirmed that the body processes synthetically-produced folic acid differently to the natural counterpart found in vegetables. This leads to unmetabolised folic acid circulating in the bloodstream which is eventually metabolised by the liver, but the process is slow, inefficient and possibly toxic.

5 Ways Corrective Lenses Break Down Your Eyesight and How To Improve Your Vision Naturally
July 24, 2014 | NaturalLiving | M.Torres
Optometrists just like much of the medical community are fixated on short-term solutions which don't address the root cause of problems. Few optometrists will admit and the greatest majority are unaware that glasses and contacts are almost guaranteed to destroy your eyesight over time. Unfortunately, they're not trained on natural and preventative solutions that improve vision in the long-term because they simply do not understand the way the eye works. Contrary to popular belief, your vision doesn't have to decline over time. With regular exercise of the muscles that control your eye movements and visual acuity, you can reduce eyestrain and maintain or even improve your vision without any destructive correctional conventions such as laser surgery, glasses or contact lenses.

The Happiest State Has One Of The Highest Poverty Levels and One Of The Lowest Household Incomes In The Nation
July 23, 2014 | Happiness | M.Forrester
There are persistent differences in self-reported subjective well-being across U.S. metropolitan areas, and residents of declining cities appear less happy than other Americans. Newer residents of these cities appear to be as unhappy as longer term residents, and yet some people continue to move to these areas. While the historical data on happiness are limited, the available facts suggest that cities that are now declining were also unhappy in their more prosperous past. According to a working paper from researchers at Harvard University and the University of British Columbia, the five happiest cities in the U.S. all happen to be located in one state, which also ranks as the happiest state.

Natural Medicine or Synthetic (drug) Medicine: Perhaps We Need a New Mindset?
July 22, 2014 | NaturalLiving | E.Dahl
A word is a thought expressed, and it has been said that our thoughts speak louder than our words. The power of the mind is still virtually unknown. A light switch turns on and off and the differences are apparent, and the same holds true for our perception and how we believe. It is my personal belief that we will either our sickness or our well-being; we have the ability to anticipate success or failure. As an example, if you receive a terminal diagnosis, you either turn the switch off or allow it to come into fruition, or you change your mindset and lifestyle to do whatever it takes in order to live. And it all begins within the mind. The same holds true in medicine.

If You Drink Milk, Don't Make It Skim
July 15, 2014 | Nutrition | M.Torres
The Dairy industry has sold the world a bunch of white lies. Most people should not be drinking processed milk of any kind, but the demonization of saturated fat in the 1950s urged consumers to choose low-fat or no-fat dairy foods over high-fat foods. Guess what? People got fatter. Most serious scientists now agree that there is no link between increased cardiovascular disease risk and higher consumption of saturated fats. So why emphasize low-fat dairy products especially when they've been proven to make us bigger, not smaller.

Why You Need To Ignore The Cancer and Sunscreen Industry and Make Your Own Protection
July 7, 2014 | Sunlight | M.Torres
Sunscreen is full of some of the most toxic chemicals known. Yet both the cancer and sunscreen industries insist on their use to ironically prevent cancer from "bad" sunlight. People still fall for this nonsense, slather on the sunscreen in hopes to protect against a non-existent foe. If the sun was really that harmful, we'd all be dead long ago. Meanwhile, a growing body of evidence shows that blocking the sun's rays from reaching our skin dramatically influences our optimal vitamin D levels, leading to higher mortality, critical illness, mental health disorders and ironically, cancer itself. Here's why you need to make your own sunscreen.

Healing Is Voltage
July 2, 2014 | Healing | M.Torres
Maintaining an alkaline environment is a key to good health. As our voltage drops below a certain voltage, we begin to experience fatigue. As the voltage further drops (and thus the pH drops) we become prone to developing health problems. Cancer cells, for example, have a pH of about 6.3 and carry a specific voltage. By knowing that chronic disease is associated with low voltage, one might ask an obvious question; "What is my voltage?"
