Alzheimer’s disease is an insidious illness; often developing without indication and leaving patients and families alike with a heavy burden. The latest statistics reveal that around five million Americans currently live with the disease. This number is estimated to peak at 16 million by 2050. The Alzheimer’s Association calculates that someone in the United States develops the condition every 66 seconds. Think about that for a minute. The time it took for you to read this entire paragraph was long enough for someone you may know to develop Alzheimer’s.

There is no cure for Alzheimer’s, but there are treatment plans to better manage it. These programs are normally expensive and tedious. A better option, health experts say, is to engage in proactive and preventive plans. This involves eating better. Thankfully, there are five nutrients that can be taken regularly to reduce the risk of developing this debilitating illness.

It’s Official: California Lists Monsanto’s Glyphosate as a Carcinogen

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:
As of July 7, 2017, glyphosate, a chemical found in Monsanto’s RoundUp herbicide, has officially been listed as a carcinogen in California under the state’s Proposition 65 law. [1]

Under the law, RoundUp, the most widely-used herbicide in the world, must carry a warning about its potential to cause cancer in humans. It is the first time that any governmental authority has created such legislation based on glyphosate’s possible carcinogenicity.

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) must still complete the task of setting a limit for acceptable daily exposure to the weedkiller. Agency scientists have proposed a limit of 1.1 mg a day, which is 127 times less than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) legal allowance for the average-sized adult.

Six pharmaceutical medicines that instantly make your health WORSE

Can you guess how many Americans take prescription drugs? Did you guess one in 20 or maybe one in 10? Or did you possibly guess as many as one out of every five Americans? If you guessed any of those you would be wrong. A new report published by the CDC shows nearly half of all Americans are taking chemical medicine for their ailments. That means over 150 million Americans have experimental, unproven chemical drugs swimming in their bloodstream right now, adding to the health chaos that comes mainly from consuming chemicals.

Fukushima Plant Owner Decides to Dump 777,000 Tons of Nuclear Waste Into Ocean

from The Anti Media:
Japan — More than three-quarters of a million tons of radioactive water is about to be dumped into the Pacific Ocean if the chairmen of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) and the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) have their way, Japanese media reported over the weekend. All they require now is final government approval.

“The decision has already been made,” TEPCO chairman Takashi Kawamura told the media, according to the Japan Times.

As of July 6, about 777,000 tons of tritium-tainted water is being stored in about 580 tanks at the Fukushima nuclear plant. The water, which is constantly injected into leaking reactor No. 1 to cool it since it was damaged by a tsunami in 2011, is then filtered to remove radioactive materials. The complex filtering system can eliminate everything but tritium.

Strawberry nutrients found to prevent dementia and age-related cognitive decline

by Russel Davis, Natural News:
An animal study published online in the Journals of Gerontology Series A revealed that eating strawberries may well prevent memory decline and subsequent onset of Alzheimer’s disease. To carry out the study, a team of researchers from the Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute examined a strain of laboratory mice that were genetically modified to develop premature aging and Alzheimer’s disease. This strain was found to exhibit physical and cognitive decline in as early as 10 months, something that normal mice do not show.

The research team also assessed the effects of fisetin, a compound found in strawberries, on the cognitive status of the animal models. One group of three-month-old prematurely-aging mice were given daily fisetin doses with their food for seven months, while another group received the same food but without the compound. The animals models were then subjected to a variety of activity and memory tests. In addition, the experts studied the levels of specific proteins in the animals. These proteins were associated with inflammation, brain function, and stress response.

Does Sugar During Pregnancy Spark Allergies in Children?

You might have cravings for sweet treats while you’re pregnant, but a recent study shows that pregnant women who overindulge may be more likely to have a child with allergies or asthma. [1]

Researchers from Queen Mary University in London studied nearly 9,000 women who gave birth during the 1990s and their children. Compared to children whose mothers ate the least amount of sugar (less than 7 teaspoons daily), children born to moms who ate the most (16-69 teaspoons a day) were 73{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} more likely to be diagnosed with two or more types of allergies, and 101{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} more likely to have allergic asthma.

The scientists also looked at dust mites, cats, grass, and other allergens known to produce respiratory and skin problems. [2]
