Low saturated fat diets don't curb heart disease risk or help you live longer... Diets low in saturated fat don't curb heart disease risk or help you live longer, says a leading US cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy in an editorial in the open access journal Open Heart. And current dietary advice to replace saturated fats with carbohydrates or omega 6-rich polyunsaturated fats is based on flawed and incomplete data from the 1950s, argues Dr James DiNicolantonio. Dietary guidelines should be urgently reviewed and the vilification of saturated fats stopped to save lives, he insists. DiNicolantonio points out that the demonization of saturated fats dates back to 1952, when research suggested a link between high dietary saturated fat intake and deaths from heart disease. But the study author drew his conclusions on data from six countries, choosing to ignore the data from a further 16, which didn't fit with his hypothesis, and which subsequent analysis of all 22 countries' data, disproved, says DiNicolantonio. Low saturated fat diets don't curb heart disease risk or help you live longer...
(NaturalNews) The President's Cancer Panel (PCP) recently released its yearly report to the President outlining the status of cancer in America. This year's report focuses primarily on environmental factors that contribute to cancer risk. According to the report, pharmaceutical drugs are a serious environmental pollutant, particularly in the way they continue to contaminate waterways across the country (and the world). Many reports have recently appeared about pharmaceutical contamination of water supplies, rivers, lakes and other waterways, but spokespersons from the drug and chemical industries have denied that this pollution poses any risk whatsoever to the environment. The executive summary of the PCP report includes the following statements: "[P]harmaceuticals have become a considerable source of environmental contamination. No laws exist to protect the public from pharmaceuticals According to a U.S. Hospitals, consumers and drug companies are all responsible Or have they already?

By Dr. Mercola Raise your hand if you're guilty of bringing home a new shirt or pair of pants from the store and wearing them, sans washing. It's very common, maybe even typical, as many fabrics look pristine when they're fresh off the rack. You probably assume they're clean or at least relatively so, but tests conducted by Philip Tierno, Ph.D. director of Microbiology and Immunology at New York University, at the behest of Good Morning America, uncovered some disturbing compounds lurking on clothing. And this is only one reason to consider washing before wearing. Even insects (like lice) could potentially be transmitted on new clothes. Feces, Respiratory Secretions, Vaginal Organisms and More Tierno tested pants, blouses, underwear, jackets and other clothing items purchased from chain clothing stores (including both high-end and low-end options).

Make Your Own Padded Air Mattress Make Your Own Padded Air Mattress How to Make Your Own Mattress In the fall of 2011, my husband and I had a serious problem. The mattress I had been sleeping on for several years had finally given up the ghost, and we did not have enough money to replace it. A used mattress was not an option (can you say eeewww!?), and continuing to sleep on my old, worn-out mattress was giving me back pain, making the tired all the time, and (most significantly to my husband) making me irritable in a way that usually happens once a month. After thinking about it for a little while, Hubby came up with an unorthodox solution. If you ever find yourself in the same situation, you can do what we did and save yourself some serious cash. You will need Your (clean!) Using a utility knife, cut apart your old mattress. Remove all the padding from your old mattress. When you have finished removing all the padding from the old mattress, take the spring frame to a scrap metal recycling center. Make your bed away you normally do. Safety note:
HomeBlogDo you wake up at 2-3 every morning? Jan 29 2013 by Kate 11 Comments If you are one of the many people waking up at 2 or 3 in the morning and can’t get back to sleep, you might want to read this… While you could pop an over-the-counter sleep aid, there might be a better choice out there for you. So maybe you could just pop a natural supplement instead, right? So what’s one to do? The solution to the root cause of the problem is likely to be blood sugar control. So maybe you are not convinced. - Do you get shaky, irritable, or lightheaded if you miss meals? If your answer is yes to either one of those, you do belong to those with blood sugar imbalances. What does this all have to do with you waking up at 3am? “Alice’s alarm goes off at 7am. Let’s look at what happens to Alice physiologically. So I’m hoping you can see what a roller coaster this diet is causing her. If you are “Alice” but you still don’t believe me, try this simple trick. Your email address will not be published.

THE INEXPENSIVE ARTHRITIS & OSTEOPOROSIS CURE THE INEXPENSIVE ARTHRITIS & OSTEOPOROSIS CURE Absolutely nothing is more disheartening and frustrating than to be doing everything you believe to be right, and spending hours a day teaching others about real food and nutrition, while suffering in silence with unexplained joint pain and trying to hide an ever incapacitating limp! And then at a Weston A. Price conference on nutrition, Sally Fallon casually dropped a ‘precious jewel’ that has given me the promise of a whole new day! A day? BORON is a mineral that is simply an activator. Boron also assists in preventing arthritis and tooth decay. Boron deficiency can cause cell walls to become very weak and fragile, rendering the cells incapable of properly transferring nutrients into them. …Boron is a very important part of a long chain that intertwines all the minerals necessary for individual cell growth and health! Boron is essential for ALL life in plants as well as animals. Chemical fertilizers inhibit the uptake of Boron from the soil. Dr. Most of Dr. Dr. Dr. ha! To your health!
Is Breakfast Really the Most Important Meal of the Day? Is Breakfast Really the Most Important Meal of the Day? Breakfast has been made out to be one of the most important meals of the day. It’s considered taboo to skip it, and we'll even go so far as to shame people for doing so. After all, making time to eat this one meal allows our lives to improve dramatically, or so it seems. Without it we've been told we run the risk of having lower IQs or increasing our risk of coronary heart disease. However, breakfast's magical properties may have been overstated. Aaron E. One study actually looked at the common proposition that skipping breakfast causes weight gain. Cereal companies have a vested interest to make sure consumers buy into breakfast. Nutrition researcher Marion Nestle would agree. So, what really happens when we don’t eat breakfast? Some suggest it may actually help people lose weight, but most have found eating breakfast has no discernible effect on weight loss. In this case, the simplest advice might be the best.

Pelvic Health

What is a Hypertonic (Tight) Pelvic Floor? - Julie Wiebe PT What is a Hypertonic (Tight) Pelvic Floor? - Julie Wiebe PT If you have stopped to read this blog you are likely… 1.…a fellow PT who is looking for new ideas and tricks. 2….a trainer (pre and.or post natal perhaps) that knows about this issue and wants more info on how to recognize it and not aggravate it in training. 3…a woman who has been told this by their physical therapist or doctor and are trying to figure out what the heck that means. Treating only the what (a “tight” pelvic floor) will get us nowhere fast. We also need to carefully examine the words we are using. But what about for other populations beyond pelvic health, orthopedics and women’s fitness? I, along with my pediatric teaching partner Shelley Mannell, explore these ideas in this recording. But where can we meet in the middle? Coming soon (early Feb), Shelley and I are releasing an online course addressing “The Challenge of Continence in Kids with Challenges”.
Between dealing with sketchy messages on dating apps and IRL awkwardness, finding a lover is nerve-wracking and confusing work for anyone. But when you add sexual disability into the mix, things can get that much more challenging. As someone with a painful sex condition, I can confirm that dating with vaginismus can be pretty scary. Since I couldn't experience penetration (something I've known since age 12, after a failed attempt at inserting a tampon), I was afraid that dating any person with a penis might lead to being rejected or hurt. In addition to the fear that I carried around from this trauma, I also had to deal with a slew of basic sexual expectations that dominate the media and the framework of most sexual interactions. One of my friends with vaginismus, LA-based associate producer Hope Nash, feels similarly disempowered by her condition. The stigma against female painful sex disorders certainly does suck.

Drug Innovation > Novel Drug Approvals for 2017 Innovation drives progress. When it comes to innovation in the development of new drugs and therapeutic biological products, FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) supports the pharmaceutical industry at every step of the process. With its understanding of the science used to create new products, testing and manufacturing procedures, and the diseases and conditions that new products are designed to treat, FDA provides scientific and regulatory advice needed to bring new therapies to market. The availability of new drugs and biological products often means new treatment options for patients and advances in health care for the American public. Each year, CDER approves a wide range of new drugs and biological products. Certain drugs are classified as new molecular entities (“NMEs”) for purposes of FDA review. * This information is currently accurate.
