The Environmental Working Group has submitted a letter to the US Department of Agriculture following an investigation which revealed earlier this year that scientists who submit work on neonicotinoids and the long-term effects of GMOs find their livelihoods in jeopardy, and their scientific credentials ruined.
Anonymous scientists are revealing that companies ‘such as Monsanto’ have made it very difficult for scientists to report the truth about their findings.

You can select who sees your personal information on Facebook, but you can’t select all of the information that Facebook sees about you. A new study finds that: “91% of health-related pages relay the URL to third parties, often unbeknownst to the user, and in 70% of the cases, the URL contains sensitive information such as ‘HIV’ or ‘cancer’ which is sufficient to tip off these third parties that you have been searching for information related to a specific disease.” 
That word [...]
It isn’t a fancy concoction, nor does it sell in the form of a capsule, promoted by a billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. It isn’t a rare herb or even some kind of strange fruit that you’ve never heard of, let alone seen. It is a common food you likely use when you cook, and that can grow easily in your back yard, or in a pot placed on a sunny patio.
Not only does this food lower cholesterol and reduce depression, it has shown remarkable effects in reducing cancerous tumors. The Univer [...]
Mothers of small children ask me about natural health all the time. It happens in the line at my favorite natural grocer, or after a yoga class. Sometimes I receive questions through email or through a friend of a friend. It’s a universal desire for parents to give their children the best start possible, but our medical system is not set up to do that at all. In fact, in 6 key ways, it is harming our children and damaging their prospects for future health. Here’s how:
1. Higher C-Sections [...]
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved a drug created by a 3D printer, in what is believed to be a first for the agency. The drug, Spritam, is made by Aprecia Pharmaceuticals and treats seizures. The medication is expected to reach the market in the first quarter of 2016. 
“‘The drug is called Spritam and is designed to treat seizures in people suffering from epilepsy. It’s a new version of a seizure medication that’s been on the market [...]
After more than 56,000 people signed a petition presented by Change.org and other animal rights activists put some additional pressure on the large US restaurant chain, the Cheesecake Factory has committed to using only cage free eggs at their dining establishments.
It is becoming well-known that purchasing eggs from factory farms is inherently supporting cruelty imposed on animals by the masses. It is no good for the animals, no good for people, and certainly no good for the environment.
When prepared right, artichokes can be delicious – this is no secret. But what many people aren’t aware of is that the spiny globes (actually called “globe artichokes”) pack quite a nutritious punch. Below you will learn of 8 artichoke health benefits that will keep you coming back for that delicious heart.
Artichokes are in the thistle group of the sunflower family. They’re not really a vegetable, per-se…they’re actually flower buds. Dating back to 371-287 B.C., artichoke [...]
It’s time for President Obama to keep his 2007 promise to label GMOs. In his own words, Obama declared it was our ‘right to know’ what we are eating, and we agree.
That’s why I have launched a White House petition asking Obama to keep his 2007 promise to enact GMO labeling nationwide.
The petition comes at a crucial turning point in the fight for GMO labeling, as the notorious ‘DARK Act‘ that would make GMO labeling illegal has been approved by the House of R [...]
People in major cities are dying from overdoses and violent crime is on the rise, thanks, in part, to the use of synthetic marijuana.
Overwhelmed police chiefs in Washington this week called for development of field tests to help law enforcement officers more quickly determine who might be on these dangerous drugs. 
Synthetic marijuana, which is sold under names like K2, Scooby Snax and Spice, contain various chemicals, but no actual marijuana. Users typically have no idea what they’re smok [...]
There are far too many fad diets out there that skip on real nutrition, and worse, sell pre-packaged foods that are called ‘low fat’ when they also include GMOs, MSG, and a host of artificial colors and flavors. Aside, from simply detoxing your body so that you can lose weight safely, research shows that eating more protein, and specifically one amino acid in particular, can boost your metabolic rate 3 times more than eating a diet high in fat and simple carbs.
Some think it is as simple as [...]
An independent lab has found that Kashi’s ‘healthy’ GoLean Original breakfast cereal (owned by Kellogg’s) is loaded with the herbicide chemical glyphosate. What’s more, it actually contains 6x the amount of glyphosate previously found in Kellogg’s’ Froot Loops cereal.
The Kashi brand has been in trouble before. The company has faced multiple class action lawsuits when consumers accused Kellogg’s of misleading them with “natural” labels despite the [...]

If it seems like you never see a teenager without a smartphone, it’s not your imagination playing tricks on you. Young people can scarcely live without their mobile devices, but that undying devotion could make their lives woefully unhappy, new data shows. 
Ottawa Public Health, Ottawa’s agency for health information, programs and services, conducted a study finding that teens who use social media sites for two hours or more per day are significantly more likely to have mental health pro [...]
Who hasn’t heard growing up that pouring a can of Coca Cola on car rust can literally remove it in no time at all? We’re not suggesting that Coke is a great rust remover, only that the urban myth was one of the most popular of the era.
Fast forward to 2015 and now we see that Coca Cola is getting another bad rap, only this time it’s the human body that is closely examined after a can of Coke is being poured down the gullet.

Scientists and environmentalists are concerned that a new technique for generated “supercharged” genetically modified organisms (GMOs) could be misused and trigger a health emergency or natural disaster.
The “gene drive” technology allows GMOs to spread rapidly in the wild. The fear is that these organisms could fall into the wrong hands or accidentally spark a catastrophe. The technology is being touted as a way to revolutionize medicine and agriculture, and supporters say it could, in [...]
The development of so-called 'gene drive' technology promises to revolutionize medicine and agriculture. [...]

While the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is not a regulatory agency, their release of a full report on glyphosate’s ability to cause cancer is making waves throughout the world. Glyphosate is the key component in Monsanto’s Roundup.
There are more than 750 products for sale in the USA alone which contain glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide that has been selling since the 1970s.
The agency is comprised of an internat [...]
Who would ever believe that just sitting in the same spot for hours on extended road trips or long flights could be so dangerous? What is now a not-so-well-known fact is that blood clots that can, and do, occur more often than most would believe during road trips.
“Extended travel time is a risk factor for developing a DVT (deep vein thrombosis,) a blood clot that develops in a large vein, usually the leg. The real danger from a DVT is the potential for it to travel to the lungs, resultin [...]
What would you do if you found out that the extract from a single fruit could keep the rogue cells of 12 different types of cancer in check?
Mainstream media reports that the fruit known as graviola, also known as soursop fruit, guanabana, or guyabano, but there are studies showing it effectively fights ovarian, colon, breast, prostate, lung, liver, cervical, lymphoma, and pancreatic cancers.
For pancreatic cancer, graviola was shown to be effective at “inhibiting tumorigenicity,” as well [...]
Alzheimer’s disease is seen as an irreversible, progressive brain disorder caused by plaques and “tangles” in the brain, along with the loss of connections between neurons in the brain. The disease is feared by aging adults the world over.
Though while it’s seen as irreversible (even though a connection between coconut oil and Alzheimer’s reversal is strong), there are certainly agreed-upon ways to at least prevent this unfortunate disease.
Rest assured, research has shed li [...]
If running sounds like little more than a prescription for sweat and pain, maybe this will improve your outlook a bit: you don’t necessarily have to run long distances or for long periods of time to reap the benefits of speedily putting one foot front of the other.
In 2014, researchers from Iowa State University, the University of South Carolina, the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La., and other institutions took a look at the records of some 55,137 healthy men and women [...]

As myself and others have been telling you for years, your cellphone really is giving you cancer. That’s the conclusion from a new mega study that backs up the reality that cellphone radiation is contributing to the development of brain tumors.
“For example, using your phone for just 20 minutes a day for five years increased the risk of one type of brain tumor threefold, and using the phone an hour a day for four years upped the risk of some tumors three to five times, study author I [...]
(Natural Society) In the last 14 years, at least 144 people have died and more than 1,000 have been injured in the U.S. as a result of undergoing robotic surgery. 
The injuries, many of them fatal, were the result of broken instruments falling into patients’ bodies, electric sparks burning patients’ tissues, and system errors making surgical procedures take longer than planned.
There have even been reports of a robotic hand that wouldn’t let go of tissue grasped during surgery, and a ro [...]

It isn’t just rock musicians who suffer from hearing loss due to exposure to loud noises – noise pollution can cause a host of ailments, from tinnitus to depression.
Exposure to sounds as loud as 100 dB should be limited to just 4 times a year. But many people who live in larger cities hear the sounds of jackhammers or construction tools [...]
Is that raw vegetable salad you’re about to eat laced with GMO’s and other unhealthy additives? If you’re using salad dressing from a salad bar, grocery store, restaurant, or even made in your own kitchen, the answer is probably yes.
Getting plenty of healthful fats and oils is essential for brain and total body health. But canola and soybean oils, the two used in almost all dressings, are not healthful fats, no matter what the advertisements say. They are money-making attempts that rely [...]
