The largest study ever undertaken on diet and health—the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)—has turned up some interesting findings on women’s hormonal balance.

The Breast Cancer Risk Nobody Talks About

Radiation from electrical and wireless gadgets can damage DNA and activate tumor growth.

An issue of the Journal Read More

Shed Belly Fat with Slimming CLA

Plus, fight inflammation linked to cancer and heart disease. Found in grass-fed beef, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) appears to benefit a range of inflammatory conditions—atherosclerosis, cancers, colitis, metabolic syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis—according to new research at University College Dublin. Other studies show that CLA reduces oxidative stress in cancer and enhances the body’s immune response. That’s good news for anyone interested in healthy weight loss, even kids. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Read More

The Flax of Life

Are flaxseeds the next breast cancer cure? What makes flaxseeds so special can be spelled out in one word and that’s L-I-G-N-A-N-S. Lignans—which are 800 times more concentrated in flaxseeds than in any other plant—are well recognized as mini miracle workers. They not only kill viruses but they also help to knock out type 2 diabetes, lower LDL cholesterol, and help to reverse atherosclerosis. But their real claim to fame is in the Read More
