Don’t overlook the most nutrient dense pick. I consider this fruit to be the most underrated fruit of summer. Can you guess what it is? It’s not papaya, it’s not mango, it’s not an orange, it’s not even an exotic fruit, like carambola… it’s… KIWI. This small fruit has big health benefits—and appears on the 15 least pesticide-contaminated list from the Environmental Working Group. This means that while it’s always Read More

Is Your Job Zapping You?

Scope out your workplace and get smart about unwanted radiation. Your workplace can emit electromagnetic pollution, ranging from very low fields to extremely high levels of radiation. Certain occupations—whether you’re a hospital worker, logger, software developer, or stockbroker—can put you at much higher risk than other jobs do. Electrical utility workers, for example, with the most AC electrical and magnetic exposure are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer, Read More

Are You Stumped by Strange Symptoms?

You may be electrosensitive, and zap-proof supplements can help. Agitation, brain fog, dizziness, headaches, inability to concentrate, nervousness, a racing pulse, ringing in your ears, sensitivity to light, skin problems, tingling in your limbs, trouble getting your work done, unrelenting fatigue, waking up repeatedly during the night—do you experience any of these seemingly unrelated symptoms? One normally healthy New York suburbanite began noticing odd symptoms several months after her power Read More

Say What?

Hearing loss increasingly impacts young people. Approximately 36 million adults and half a million children in the United States have trouble hearing. And according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), 26 million Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 have hearing loss caused by loud noises. Everything from loud toys and video games in childhood, iPods and rock concerts in adolescence, workplace noise and Read More

Dangerous Drugs in Your Medicine Cabinet

Also pay attention to supplement-drug interactions. Worldwide, prescription drug abuse is even higher than the combined use of illicit drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, and heroin, finds the UN International Narcotics Control Board. In this country alone, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently reported that abuse of prescription painkillers has led to an alarming 111% jump in emergency room visits over the last 5 years! And a new study in Read More

Love Your Liver

Detox and diet to banish belly fat and reduce risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It doesn’t get the attention that the heart and brain do. But your liver is every bit as important, performing close to 400 different jobs from transforming food into energy and controlling hormonal balance to producing bile that supports healthy digestion. The largest organ in the body, the liver is also a potent detoxifier. Perhaps Read More

For Ageless Skin

You’re never too young to ensure a glowing complexion. Even in your 20s, fine lines—the harbinger of wrinkles—may start to appear. But a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that what you eat can combat the photoaging that leads to wrinkles. Using both food questionnaires and scientific analyses of ultraviolet damage in 2,000 people in Australia, Greece, and Sweden, researchers found that those eating healthy monounsaturated fats Read More

Natures Anti-aging Secret

The “super antioxidant” glutathione is a key player in both detox and disease prevention. The most important ingredient in healthy longevity may be something you’ve never heard of—glutathione. This antioxidant helps combat the ill effects of aging as well as diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s and dementia to cancer and cardiovascular problems. A combination of the amino acids cysteine, glycine, and glutamine, glutathione is produced naturally in the body, where it Read More

Readers Digest Is Dead Wrong on Vitamins

Why do most doctors and nurses take supplements if they aren’t useful? The April issue of Reader’s Digest ran an anti-vitamin article that’s generated quite a lot of responses. That may be because more than half of all Americans currently take nutritional supplements. According to the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, here’s just some of what readers had to say: “Basic biochemistry and a review of the literature supports the benefits Read More

Sleeplessness May Shrink Your Brain

Insomnia can lead to depression, diabetes, and weight gain. Roughly 60% of Americans polled in a new survey say they don’t get enough sleep. And when you set your clocks to “spring forward” on Sunday, you’ll probably be joining them! Besides costing an hour of sleep, adjusting to daylight savings can disrupt sleep patterns—and affect the body’s circadian rhythms. Sleep disturbances are clearly linked to depression and other forms of mental Read More
