Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to Cancer

Natural Health
We have said many times in this Blog that the near "hysteria" over staying out of the sun has caused a deficiency in most folks in the U.S. of Vitamin D. We have also seen the link between Vitamin D and many debilitating and serious conditions. New evidence only strengthens this connection! Vitamin D casts cancer prevention in new light "For decades, researchers have puzzled over why rich northern countries have cancer rates many times higher than those in developing countries — and many have laid the blame on dangerous pollutants spewed out by industry. But research into vitamin D is suggesting both a plausible answer to this medical puzzle and a heretical notion: that cancers and other disorders in rich countries aren't caused mainly by pollutants but by a…

Want a Laugh? “Scientists Discover that Probiotics are Beneficial!”

Natural Health
Imagine! They discovered that Americans are too "clean-centric" and that we NEED certain bacteria to be healthy! Natural health advocates have known this, literally for, years and years! Make that generations! Hacking Your Body's Bacteria for Better Health "Modern humans are bacteria-killing machines. We assassinate microbes with hand soap, mouthwash and bathroom cleaners. It feels clean and right. But some scientists say we're overdoing it. All this killing may actually cause diseases like eczema, irritable bowel syndrome and even diabetes. The answer, they say, is counterintuitive: Feed patients bacteria. 'Probiotics (pills containing bacteria) have resulted in complete elimination of eczema in 80 percent of the people we've treated,' says Dr. Joseph E. Pizzorno Jr., a practicing physician and former member of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine…

Why Would the FDA Ban, or Regulate, Supplements?

Health Freedoms
There is an old saying, "Follow the money." Big pharmaceutical companies develop drugs to fight disease (supposedly) and then sell it via doctors to consumers. Consumers are finding that readily available vitamins, minerals, herbs, and supplements are often just as effective (if not MORE so) as the drugs, but without harmful side effects. Wouldn't it then make sense for lobbyists to push to regulate away these readily available, natural supplements to protect their big pharma constituents? Yes. And therein lies the problem. Right now, we have the choice to use supplements and herbs, if we choose to... so, in steps the FDA to take away that choice! And, as I have pointed out in an earlier Blog entry... we only have until April 30th to say anything about it! Health…

High Sugar Intake Linked to Cancer

Natural Health
You know that I am constantly "dinging" pure, white refined sugar as a "Metabolic Poison." Well, now studies indicate that it can also increase the risk of cancer! Blood sugar 'boosts cancer risk' Women with high blood sugar levels are at an increased risk of developing cancer, a major European study finds. "Diabetes causes high blood sugar, as does eating too much sugary food. The Swedish research, which looked at 64,500 people, linked raised blood sugar with pancreas, skin, womb, and urinary tract cancers in women. Diabetes experts said more evidence was needed to confirm the link. The study comes as other work links a high fat diet to increased breast cancer risk. In this study, carried out by a team at the University of Umea, high blood sugar was…

There is a crisis in health freedom! Tell everyone you know that is interested in natural health freedoms!

Use This Link to Respond to the FDA! We MUST stand up now for our health freedoms while we can! PLEASE spread the word!

GM Corn Shows Kidney and Liver Toxicity in Animal Studies

Natural Health
You have seen articles here on the Traditional Naturopath Blog about my concerns over GM (Genetically Modified) foods. I am VERY concerned that the FDA is not even going to require special labeling so that we can avoid it. Why? Well, if we KNEW it was GM, we wouldn't buy it, and that would adversely impact business! I would rather they not even make this "monster food," but at the VERY least they should have warning labels so that those of us that choose to eat only real food can do so! Now, there is direct evidence that GM corn does cause liver and kidney toxicity! But, does this mean that the government will ban it? No! Monsanto's GM corn MON863 shows kidney, liver toxicity in animal studies "A variety…
