The Newly Found Super Bacteria

The day of reckoning is here, at least when it comes to super bacteria that seem to be immune to traditional treatment with antibiotics. A 49-year-old woman has become the first person carrying a bacteria resistant to colistin, an antibiotic of last resort for the worst infections, which develops a disease.

Secrets of the TTIP negotiations Revealed

12 Reasons to Drink at least 2.5 Litres of Water a Day

You have heard it from everyone: Drinking water is key in maintaining good health. Planet Earth is approximately 70% water and so is the human body. Could this be a coincidence? Of course not. Since almost everyone agrees that drinking water is an absolute necessity to remain healthy, let me highlight the obvious. In order for water to have the positive effects we all have heard about, it needs ...Read full article...

How to Rebel Against Corporate Food

The term “corporate food” is pretty disturbing if you stop to think about it. Corporations aren’t usually known for their strong ethics or for placing people above profit. And yet, somehow, more than 70% of food in America is processed and almost two-thirds of the food available comes from only 4% of the farms. This means that a very high percentage of the food consumed in America was somehow provided by a corporation whose ...Read full article...

How to Test Your Drinking Water and Why You Should Do It

While we would love to be able to trust the liquid flowing from our faucets, anyone who pays even half-hearted attention to the news knows that we can no longer expect safety in our drinking water unless we confirm it ourselves. The EPA and Michigan’s Gov. Snyder have now added to the list of reasons that I have trust issues. Water is one of the most important survival topics around ...Read full article...

Zika Virus spreads to North America

The virus transmitted by mosquitoes can cause microcephaly in fetuses and newborns. The Zika virus is phylogenetically similar to those of dengue and yellow fever. It was first discovered in the Zika forest in Uganda, in 1947. Apparently observers found that monkeys who were being monitored to control yellow fever were also infected with the virus.

Why (and How) to Know the Origin of Your Meat

As often occurs, members of Congress snuck some crusty little barnacles onto the budget bill that would have been hard to pass on their own. One of those was repealing the law that required labels letting you know the origin of your meat sold in US grocery stores. The World Trade Organization said those labels were unfair to foreign meat producers. The only reason this would be “unfair” is ...Read full article...

Drop your meds and prevent disease

In spite of what many people believe, pharmaceutical drugs are not useful to achieve or maintain a healthy state, neither physical not mental. Both physical and mental health are closer to everyone than people imagine. Yet, so many people continue to believe that synthetic drugs are the solution to their problems. Meds provided to the sick by a physician only perpetuate their unhealthy physical state, and those recommended by ...Read full article...

What is food if not your Medicine

Shouldn’t you be paying close attention to what you ingest, then? Most of our readers are probably aware of the difference between real food and products labeled as things that someone thinks is food. However, non-food products are closer to our fridges and dinner tables than we think, even while being careful with what we eat. The average supermarket, which most people recognize are their only source of food, ...Read full article...

The IMF worsened the African Ebola crisis

Science does not know why the current outbreak of Ebola is so durable and deadly. Perhaps the explanation is not in medicine, otherwise in the economy. GREAT BRITAIN – An analysis of the austerity policies imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the most affected countries shows that their national health systems were being weakened for years, paving the way for the epidemic to be even costlier than ...Read full article...

Ebola is great to push Vaccines

Ebola is in the air and so is the new “flu season”. What else could pharmaceutical giants wish for? Vaccination season is here and health authorities everywhere are already calling on all misinformed to get vaccinated against the flu. There is no link between Ebola and the flu, except that in some countries people with flu symptoms may be deemed too dangerous to walk around and may be quarantined ...Read full article...

The Multi-tasker Carcinogen in your Food

Science is great when scientists use it to manufacture products that make our lives easier. But science can sometimes be the worst culprit when it is misused to hide the dangers that some chemicals pose to human health. In the first article of this series, I demonstrated how easily chemicals get into the food supply and how every time humans, animals and the environment are exposed to them, disease ...Read full article...

Chemical Reality: The Nastiest of the Nasty

In the first part of this series, I concentrated on describing the two main definitions of food that most people use to guide their eating habits. I also began laying down the ground for a detailed description of pesky ingredients that are present in our ‘food’ even though they are not supposed to be there.
