This natural seasoning promotes an overall healthier body

Antibacterial, antiseptic, low-carb and easy to plant at home. Garlic is much more than a seasoning, it is a disease preventing seasoning loaded with nutritional properties and health benefits due to its sulfur compounds and multiple phytonutrients. It is not an accident that grandparents used to hang garlic on strings in their houses. In fact, this is a practice first seen in Ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the father of modern ...Read full article...

Why is glucose essential for brain function?

Glucose is the main fuel that provides energy to the body’s cells and the neurons of our brain which, like that of all mammals, needs a constant supply of glucose to function. Despite this reality, the WHO recommends reducing the consumption of sugar below 10% of the total caloric intake of the day, and even encourages this consumption to drop 5%, because “it would produce additional benefits for health”. ...Read full article...

Are you taking medications linked to depression?

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 ...Read full article...

7 million die every year as a result of breathing contaminated air, according to the latest WHO report. More people die of air pollution than of AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Breathing causes four times more deaths than these three diseases combined: seven million a year, almost as many as all cancers, because the air inspired by nine out of ten humans is contaminated, to a greater or lesser extent. ...Read full article...

These are the Real Facts about the Metabolism of Fat

One out of every ten people in the world is obese. By 2015 numbers, 604 million adults and 108 million children are significantly obese. Yet, almost no one seems to know how exactly fat metabolism works. Any diet that supplies less “fuel” than it burns will do the trick, the problem is that with so many misconceptions about how weight loss works, few know why this will happen. The ...Read full article...

Interstitium: the new human organ you didn’t know you had

Researchers at the University School of Medicine in New York identified a previously unknown component of the human body that they classify as a new organ. The interstitium, as it is called, is a network of cavities filled with liquid that lies under the skin and covers many other organs. Until now scientists believed there was an “interstitial space” between the cells, but not that it was an organ. ...Read full article...

The Day After Tomorrow is Today

You may all remember that 2004 science fiction film, where a climatologist is ignored by world government officials when warning them that a gigantic superstorm was about to freeze up the northern hemisphere, which meant a catastrophic natural disaster.

Warm and cold water masses that moved north and south ...Read full article...

Many Food Products contaminated with Acrylamide

A few days ago a Los Angeles Superior Court judge, Elihu Berle, put acrylamide on the mainstream map by forcing California coffee shops – including Starbucks – to add a health warning about the carcinogenic risks of this chemical present in the coffee.

This is why Children need Playing and Fresh Air

Children who play outdoors, instead of being in “cages” avoid stress and anxiety. I bet as an adult you would like to go back in time to feel like a child again. Ask yourself this question, why do people share photos from their childhood on social media all the time? I see it everyday in my classroom. Children are naturally more uncomfortable when limited by four walls than when ...Read full article...

Capturing CO2 useless in solving “climate change”

The capture of CO2 has very limited utility, say European experts who warn against the temptation of depending on carbon capture as the main measure to affect climate change. Falling into this climate temptation is quite easy. “Thinking that the technology will come to the rescue if we can not reduce greenhouse gases enough can be an attractive vision,” admits Thierry Courvoisier, president of the Scientific Academic Advisory Committee of the ...Read full article...

Dreaming of sleeping better: Your life depends on it

Sleeping quality is monumental to prevent disease and avoid addictions. Why do we need to sleep? Humans spend a third of our lives sleeping, but we really do not know why we have to lose consciousness to get all the biological benefits of rest. The dream of sleeping better may be a complex neurological mechanism designed to prevent many diseases. The lack of sleep is associated with an increased ...Read full article...

Broken Brain Epidemic and how to Fix it

An unbalanced broken brain is responsible for many mental diseases. The result of those diseases in children, teenagers, adults and the elderly are usually untreated or not even discovered by mainstream medicine. Most doctors aren’t capable of diagnosing most brain-related diseases, much less treat them or cure them. Perhaps the main reason why mental disease is wrongfully treated or not treated at all is that brain health does not ...Read full article...

Intermittent Fasting: A Good Strategy or a Crock?

A new dietary trend has been hovering over the heads of consumers for a few years, both to lose weight and to improve health prognosis through various metabolic markers.
