The humble broccoli brings DRAMATIC benefits to your digestive health


by Rhonda Johansson, Natural News:

The humble broccoli, which has often taken the much-undeserved title of “America’s most hated vegetable,” is one of the best superfoods out there. Nutritionists love the little green plant for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, but new research confirms its use in promoting digestive health.

But before you scoff at the conclusion, remember that there’s a deep and intrinsic connection between gut health and overall well-being. The dramatic benefits that broccoli gives your gut have an implied benefit to just how healthy you are, overall.

Is Gene Editing the New Name for Eugenics?

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

A major new technology known as Gene Editing has gained significant attention in recent months. Its advocates claim it will revolutionize everything from agriculture production to disease treatment. None other than Bill Gates has just come out in an article in the US foreign policy magazine Foreign Affairs in praise of the promise of gene editing. Yet a closer investigation suggests that all is not so ideal with Gene Editing. New peer reviewed studies suggest it could cause cancer. The question is whether this technology, which is highly controversial, is little more than a stealth way to introduce GMO genetic manipulation by way of another technique.

The scientific magazine, Nature Studies, has published two studies that suggest that gene-editing techniques may weaken a person’s ability to fight off tumors, and “could give rise to cancer, raising concerns about for the safety of CRISPR-based gene therapies.” The studies were done by Sweden’s Karolinska Institute and by the pharmaceutical firm, Novartis. Cells whose genomes are successfully edited by CRISPR-Cas9 have the potential to seed tumors inside a patient the studies found. That could make some CRISPR’d cells ticking time bombs, according to researchers from Karolinska Institute and, in a separate study, by Novartis.

The compelling link between food and mood: Eating real food plays a significant role in how mentally healthy you are


by Rhonda Johansson, Natural News:

Across all the literature and studies on the potential link between mental health and one’s diet, experts agree that cutting down on inflammatory foods is a sure-fire way to feel better. The effects can be likened to the domino effect; with healthier food improving physical function, which in turn boosts mental health. Unsurprisingly, this strengthened mental capacity encourages people to be more physically fit, thus completing the cycle for better overall health.

Time and again REAL science has shown the compelling link between eating organic food and improved mental health. Scientists and nutritionists alike have highlighted and underscored it (twice) that the best way to beat depression (and similar mental illnesses) is to first look at the food one is eating.

200 Ordinary Medications Cause Depression and Suicidal Thoughts: Are YOU Taking One of Them?

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

It would be difficult to overlook the epidemic of depression that has struck the United States over the past decades. The CDC recently found that death by suicide was up more than 30% and the use of antidepressants has vaulted 65% in the past 15 years.

There are many different theories about this increase. Everything from internet addiction to the Trump presidency to environmental causes has been blamed. Some believe it’s always been like this but that the stigma has lessened and more people are getting help.

But now there’s one more possible cause that needs to be considered. New research has shown that more than 200 medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, can increase the likelihood of depression and depressive symptoms. And when two or more of these drugs are combined, the potential for depression increases even more.

The Damaging Effects Of 5G WiFi On Your Health

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

Wireless radiation is a huge health problem that continues to be ignored and another opportunity for us to gaze into the past of similar occurrences and learn from our mistakes. Take tobacco for example, at one time in history you were considered a fool and ‘crazy’ for speaking up against the big tobacco companies and letting people know that cigarettes compromise our health. Today, science has spoken, and it has spoken for a long time, despite what the corporations put out into the public and the “science” they used to approve these things in the first place.

ALERT: Kellogg’s Cereal Recall Due to Salmonella


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The FDA has warned of a multistate salmonella outbreak that has been traced back to a popular Kellogg’s cereal. So far, the outbreak has affected 73 people in 31 states.

The outbreak has been traced back to Honey Smacks cereal and is not only in the United States, but may potentially affect shipments that have been delivered to Aruba/Curaçao/Saint Maarten (Netherlands Antilles), the Bahamas, Barbados, Tortola (British Virgin Islands), Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, and Tahiti (French Polynesia).

Here are the Honey Smacks affected by the voluntary recall:

Type 2 diabetes can be avoided with the right kind of diet – do you know which one?


by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

If there’s any upside to the devastating prevalence of Type 2 diabetes in modern times, it’s the wealth of research into the disease the epidemic has inspired. There have been plenty of useful findings in recent years, although not all of them have gotten the publicity they deserve, especially those that threaten the profits of pharmaceutical companies and doctors. That’s a tragedy because putting these findings into action could significantly reduce this disease’s impact on people.
