Eating Chocolate May Be More Important Than We Ever Realized!

Natural Health
There have been a lot of great articles and studies done recently about the benefits of chocolate on health. And, there have been the typical "morning TV talk show" comments about, "See I knew all that chocolate was good for me! Yuk-yuk!" Well, what we think of as "chocolate" amounts to a little actual chocolate and a LOT of sugar... which mitigates the benefits to our health, unfortunately! Sugar, as I have said many times before, is a "metabolic poison!" But, raw, dark, untreated chocolate (as always, foods are healthier in their natural form) does seem to almost be too good to be true health-wise! Check out this information: Eating Chocolate May be More Important to Your Health Than Penicillin "Epicatechin, a compound found in unrefined cocoa, could have health…

Want Some Lighter Fluid with Those Chicken McNuggets?!

Natural Health
You read that right... lighter fluid! So What Really Is In A McDonald's Chicken McNugget? "Most folks assume that a chicken nugget is just a piece of fried chicken, right? Wrong! Did you know, for example, that a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget is 56% corn? What else is in a McDonald's Chicken McNugget? Besides corn, and to a lesser extent, chicken, The Omnivore's Dilemma describes all of the thirty-eight ingredients that make up a McNugget – one of which I'll bet you'll never guess... McNuggets also contain several completely synthetic ingredients, quasi-edible substances that ultimately come not from a corn or soybean field but form a petroleum refinery or chemical plant. These chemicals are what make modern processed food possible, by keeping the organic materials in them from going bad or…

Another “Science Fiction” Story – That is Rapidly Becoming TRUE!

Natural Health
Again, this sounds like an old SciFi movie... scientists breed a new form of mosquito for "good reasons" and release it into the wild, only to have it take over! Well, that sounds like this true news story from the BBC: GM mosquito 'could fight malaria' "GM" here is "Genetically Modified." The picture with the article says: "The GM mosquitoes could be identified by their green fluorescent eyes." Wow! "A genetically modified (GM) strain of malaria-resistant mosquito has been created that is better able to survive than disease-carrying insects. It gives new impetus to one strategy for controlling the disease: introduce the GM insects into wild populations in the hope that they will take over. The insect carries a gene that prevents infection by the malaria parasite. Details of the…

Antibiotics Over-prescribed for Sinus Infections

Natural Health
"U.S. doctors may be over-prescribing antibiotics for sinus infections, which are often caused by viruses and not bacteria, according to a study released Monday. A review of two national surveys of visits to doctors and recommended treatments found antibiotics prescribed for about 82 percent of acute sinus infections and nearly 70 percent of chronic sinus infections, researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha said. That 'far outweighs the predicted incidence of bacterial causes. The literature repeatedly shows that viruses are by far the most frequent cause of acute rhinosinusitis,' the study, published in this week’s Archives of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, said." Antibiotics Over-prescribed for Sinus Infections Again, YOU are the person most responsible for YOUR health... if your Allopathic practitioner prescribes an antibiotic, ask why, and…

Have You Seen the Ambien and Lunesta Commercials? Do They Tell You That They Might Make You Crazy?

Natural Health
No... I bet not! New warnings for sleeping pills "The most widely prescribed sleeping pills can cause strange behavior like driving and eating while asleep, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which announced Wednesday that strong new warnings would be placed on the labels of 13 drugs. The agency also ordered the makers of the well-known drugs, Ambien and Lunesta, and the producers of 11 other commonly used sleeping pills to create patient fliers explaining how to safely use them. The fliers, which the agency says it requires when it sees a significant public health concern, will be handed out at pharmacies when consumers fill their prescriptions. Although the agency says that problems with the drugs are rare, reports of the unusual side effects have grown as use…
