Fake sugars lead to real health disasters

I often report on the disturbing findings linking zero-calorie artificial sweeteners to the medical problems they are supposedly meant to prevent. Artificial sweeteners create weight gain, larger waistlines, and obesity. Furthermore, studies associate them with a higher risk of developing Type II diabetes. Just exactly how artificial sweeteners cause these problems has been a mystery. …

Natural boosts for mood and mental health

Earlier this week, I reported on the decline of America’s mental health over the last 30 years. We arrived at this low point, in part, because mental health professionals have stopped listening to their patients’ needs as individuals. Instead, most of them exclusively rely their prescription pads to shoe-horn patients into any number of drugs …

Investigating the link between Type II diabetes and mental illness

Serious mental illness affects the mind and the body. After all, the mind and body are connected. In fact, previous research show that patients with major mental illness die 15 to 30 years earlier than the average. But most of the excess mortality stems from medical causes unrelated to the brain or nervous system. For …

The shocking connection between big pharma and Alzheimer’s

As far as I’m concerned, an Alzheimer’s disease cure already exists. And it has a 90 percent success rate.  It’s just that you won’t learn about it from big pharma because this devastating disease is far too profitable for them. In fact, big pharma itself is the primary cause of much of the most common …

Women with “fake breast cancer” live longer

For decades, mainstream medicine has labeled and treated “ductal carcinoma in situ” (DCIS) as breast cancer. But it does not act like cancer. In fact, as I have warned for some time, DCIS is a fake “cancer.” For a pathologist to label a condition as cancer, it should have the risk of invading tissue, metastasizing …

Why some people develop lifelong immunity from influenza

According to the CDC’s latest figures, more than 14,000 people have already gotten hit with the influenza virus this winter. But why is it some people seem to avoid it, year after year after year? New research published in the journal Science may help explain why some people seem to develop a natural, lifelong immunity …

Melanoma caused by mistaken medical beliefs

We now know what caused the increase in deadly melanoma skin cancer observed in recent decades. It was not due to sun exposure. It was not due to “sunscreen deficiency.” And it was not due to anything that adults do at all, in the sun, without their clothes on. (Wouldn’t you know it, French scientists …

The only heart supporter you will ever need

Over my 40-year career — as a medical anthropologist, epidemiologist, and physician specializing in natural medicine — I was one of the first to see clues about a natural blood pressure breakthrough…clues the AHA and the NIH completely missed. First, during my early investigations around the world as a young medical student, I noticed that …

Five great reasons to eat apples year-round

Until recent generations, if you wanted apples at this time of year, you had to drink apple cider, or hope you had some apples left in your root cellar from last fall. Today, we’re fortunate that we can find apples year-round. And that’s a good thing, considering their many health benefits, as I’ll explain in …

Eat chili peppers for a longer (and hotter) life

The next time you make dinner, throw some red, hot chili peppers into the dish. New research links them with improved longevity. For this new study, researchers at the University of Vermont analyzed dietary and lifestyle data on a cohort of more than 16,000 people and followed them for up to 23 years. Overall, they …
