According to the New York Times, adjusting for the size and age of the population, cancer death rates dropped only five percent from 1950 to 2005.


What other technology has performed so miserably over this 55-year period? Would you accept a medical therapy that has not improved...

Oxygen is the only nutrient that is more important to sustaining life than water. Your dog could live for weeks without food, but would only last a few days without water. Approximately 60 percent of your dog’s total weight is water. That means if she weights 50 ponds, then 30 pounds of that weight is water. The entire body is highly dependent on water, including the blood, brain, and muscles, which are each over 70 percent water. The most important nutrient you give your dog...

The issue of bioavailability has become a major topic for researchers of antioxidants. According to Dr. Robert Hackman, a researcher at UC Davis who has extensively studied polyphenols, notes that “it’s not a matter of what gets in your mouth but what gets in your blood.” But of the different types of antioxidants, even the most potent ones only show in the range of 10 percent to 30 percent bioavailability.


So what is it that keeps these nutrients from being...

Everything that lives requires enzymes; humans, plants and animals.

Enzymes are protein-based substance found in every living cell. Enzymes can be likened to the starter in your automobile; they ignite the process into action and the speed is dependent on the amount of power under the hood (a full-spectrum of enzymes for specific jobs, working in powerful synchronicity to enhance performance).

In today’s diet of over processed and overcooked food, we can expect...

Over the course of 12 weeks, researchers gave varying dosages of Splenda to five groups of rats and then collected their fecal pellets. Though all of the rats consumed the same amount of food, the rats that received the Splenda treatment gained...

When Mom eats fish during pregnancy, junior may get a developmental boost.

A small square of dark chocolate daily protects the heart from inflammation and subsequent heart disease, a new study of Italians suggests. Milk chocolate might not do the job.

However, this guilty pleasure has a limit.

Specifically, only 6.7 grams of chocolate per day (or 0.23 ounces) represents the ideal amount, according to results from the Moli-sani Project, one of the largest health studies ever conducted in Europe. For comparison, a standardsized Hershey’s kiss...

Apple pectin and polyphenol-rich apple juice have an anti-carcinogenic effect on the colon, encouraging the production of suspected chemo-preventative metabolite butyrate, say researchers. Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid (SCFA) that has been found to be a major factor contributing to healthy colon mucosa.

The study, published in the April issue of Nutrition, looked at human fecal matter fermented with apple constituents and found a significantly increased yield...
