Utah ignores science on moderate alcohol consumption

The prohibitionists are at it again. Apparently, they won’t stop until they can put anyone who takes a drink into a cage — as they have done with smoking a cigarette or cigar. Indeed, last month, the Utah governor signed a bill into law that lowers the maximum blood alcohol limit for drivers down to …

The natural, non-invasive, absolutely free breast cancer cure the “experts” don’t want you to have

Many women today seem to feel that breast cancer may just be the fate of many. The medical-industrial-government complex offers no real advice for preventing this brutal disease. Instead, it pushes its agenda to get useless screenings and avoid fat, alcohol and tobacco. And it pushes the real science right off the table. But two, …

White, middle-aged Americans now dying young

In 2015, two Princeton University economists found some startling data hidden among taxpayer-funded government health reports. Mortality (death) rates of white, middle-aged Americans has been steadily on the rise since 1999. The increasing mortality rates affect whites of both sexes nearly everywhere in the country. And whites without college education are experiencing the biggest impact. …

The real “war” on women’s health

Gender bias is a huge issue in the medical field. In fact, in the 1980s, when I was doing major studies on chronic diseases, typically men would be enrolled in the study, without a single woman. While working at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the mid-1980s, I tried to put a stop to …

Six safer alternatives to medical marijuana

Politically correct politicians and lobbyists tout the health benefits — but ignore the dangers — of smoking marijuana to justify its legalization and acceptance. And, yes, science shows natural cannabinoids — which alter the release of neurotransmitters in the brain — do offer some health benefits. But did you know many other plants found in …

8 hidden factors that affect your weight

You probably hear that diet and exercise are the keys to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. While those two factors are the foundation, half-a-dozen other factors also influence metabolism and body weight. Even the diet-exercise formula is not so simple. For example, eating foods with empty calories from sugars causes metabolic toxicity. And you …

Five unnecessary skin treatments to avoid

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recently put out a list of unnecessary skin treatments. But — as you might expect — dermatologists continue to perform and prescribe these very treatments, despite the evidence. Even when that evidence comes from their very own experts, as I’ll explain in a moment. Dermatologists continue to ignore science …

The hidden dangers of contraceptives

We hear a lot of concerns these days about protecting women’s access to reproductive health services, including oral contraceptives. One the one hand, this matter is strictly private, between women and their healthcare practitioners, and a personal choice. Yet, on the other hand, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, it is a public policy issue …

Surprisingly simple tip for increasing longevity in women

I often write about the benefits of spending more time in Nature. So — of course — the new nationwide study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health caught my eye. It came to some very strong conclusions about the connection between green living space and longevity in women. For this study, Harvard researchers …

How horses are helping heal PTSD, depression and more

I recently watched the classic movie The Horse Soldiers (1959) with John Wayne and William Holden, directed by John Ford. It tells the true story of Col. Benjamin Grierson who leads the U.S. 7th Cavalry on maneuvers deep behind Confederate lines in the South in support of the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi in summer 1863. …
