Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

Humans in modern societies typically consume food at least three times daily, while laboratory animals are fed ad libitum. Over consumption of food with such eating patterns often leads to metabolic morbidities (insulin resistance, excessive accumulation of visceral fat, etc.), particularly when associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Addressing America’s Top Deficiency with a New Product

One of the most common nutritional deficiencies and most commonly misdiagnosed problems in America is B-Complex Deficiency Syndrome. (BCDS) Since most doctors feel either that vitamin deficiencies are a lot of bunk, or that “enriched” processed foods fill nutritional voids, lots of bogus diagnosis are given to people suffering a simple deficiency of B vitamins….

The Business of Cancer

  The cancer drug model is broken, with profiteering coming way ahead of true innovation and the patient.

Doctors in the UK and the US are given cash pay-outs to prescribe more drugs—in the UK, doctors get up to 20 per cent of their annual income from these incentives.

Is Calcium Toxic?

Just like iron and copper, calcium is absolutely essential for good health. However, excess levels of these three nutrient elements are very toxic. Deficiencies of these nutrients are certainly not desirable, but they are only rarely encountered in the United States. An irrational fear of such rare and easily treated deficiencies should not be allowed…
