You likely already know that aloe vera is a wonderful home remedy for burns, cuts, and bruises, but did you know that drinking the juice of the aloe vera plant offers some amazing healing benefits as well?
To start, aloe vera aids in digestive health by balancing stomach acids, thereby helping your body to absorb the nutrients you consume. It also has laxative qualities, so if you ever have trouble with constipation, drinking a little juice from the aloe plant will help to get things moving ag [...]
Update: The DARK Act, making mandatory GMO labeling ‘illegal,’ has passed the House. It must now be voted on by the Senate, which is the last hope for defeating the bill.
Statewide GMO labeling has been ruled ‘illegal’ as Congress decides to pass the notorious ‘DARK Act,’ which puts a halt to all mandatory GMO labeling initiatives around the United States.
I’ve been warning you about this secretive bill (officially titled the ‘Safe and Accurate Fo [...]
The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015, which passed 275-150, would instead create a federal standard for voluntary labeling of GMOs. [...]
Not only did Novak Djokovic handily just win the French Open against the number 2 player in the world, he won after adhering to a gluten-free diet.
While such an accomplishment has become standard for Djokovic, going gluten-free after a lifelong diet of wheat food products was entirely new. Having been diagnosed with celiac disease by his doctor, the world’s top tennis player knew that he would have to make the diet adjustment sooner or later.
“It did change my life,” he said [...]

I try to write about natural health and food safety issues without putting my personal life into them too often, but we all know our personal views can influence us. I’m going to tell you how upset I am by the CDC’s declaration that mothers should delay breastfeeding to boost vaccine efficacy.
Here it is – I know not everyone agrees about vaccines, and that’s O.K. But what isn’t O.K. is when a government agency meant to prevent the spread of disease (well, at least that’s what [...]

The U.S. Attorney’s Office recently raided medical marijuana programs of two tribal authorities in Northern California, which according a press release from the Leaders of Alturas Rancheria, is completely legal. Needless to say, the Tribal Authorities are quite upset about the event. The operations were owned by the Alturas Indian Rancheria and the Pit River Tribe.
Tribes are said to have reached out to local law enforcement agencies to make sure that they were in compliance with local and [...]
Everyone knows that there is a big difference between edible mushrooms and the poisonous kind. Toxic mushrooms are certainly out there in the fields, but they have been identified over the years so that there is little chance of them being harvested by trained and experienced pickers. There are certainly ways anyone can tell which mushrooms are poisonous and which are safe to eat – read on to find out how.
“Fewer than 1% of the estimated 10,000 mushroom species in North America are p [...]
The World Health Organization recently pronounced that the insecticide Lindane is directly linked to increased rates of cancer – specifically Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The organization also reports that DDT is ‘probably carcinogenic to humans.’
What is interesting about the recent pronouncement is that it took place after lindane was banned by both the U.S. and EU. For some unknown reason, it took the WHO a half a century to come to the conclusion that lindane causes cancer.
As of [...]
Snowmass, a skier’s paradise tucked into the Colorado Mountains, and part of Aspen, has decided to stop fluoridating its water. The news comes just after the latest groundbreaking study on water fluoridation concluded that there was zero relationship between water fluoridation and cavity prevention.
As Anthony Gucciardi shared with you on July 1st, the study incorporated years of research into a serious conclusion that could help activists remove fluoride from the water worldwide.
The sanitat [...]
Transforming your health doesn’t take hours a day. Instead, it all starts with 20 minutes a day — and anyone can benefit. I wanted to share with you my 20 minute per day ‘life hack tip,’ so I recorded a short video while taking my own 20 minutes of the day to de-stress and enjoy nature:
Many ‘thought leaders’ recommend spending at least an hour a day to do something important: whether it’s build your business or hit the gym. I think that it’s impor [...]
Turmeric, with its unique flavor and rich yellow color, is known as “Indian gold” for its many healing properties. Science is only beginning to uncover the many ways in which this ancient home remedy serves as a natural medicine that can be picked up at virtually any grocery store for barely a fraction of the price of prescription drugs.
Past Research Proves Turmeric’s Anti-Cancer Power
In the 1990s, Bharat Aggarwal, Ph.D. and colleagues from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cance [...]
It’s quite true that aromatherapy can penetrate deeper into the tissues than many other healing modalities. Because they are inhaled through the nose, essential oils will efficiently pass through the blood brain barrier in the area surrounding the olfactory nerve. This makes them contenders as natural healers for brain injuries and more.
A true blood-brain barrier is 8 cells in thickness. The number of cells which constitute the layer around the olfactory nerve is only 4 to 5 cells think. [...]
For many countries, the allowable level of fluoride in drinking water is 1.5mg/l. This is an arbitrary number that has never been proven to be safe. In fact, even trace amounts of fluoride have been shown to be ‘a functional liability to the nervous system.’
The CDC states that the “EPA’s enforceable standard for fluoride in public water supplies is 4.0 milligrams per liter,” but this far exceeds any safe amount of fluoride that we should be drinking.
In a Russian study translated [...]
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) has reiterated its stance on glyphosate’s carcinogenic profile and now calls it ‘definitely genotoxic’ – just to be sure the world understands that Monsanto is causing harm to human beings and animals fed GM food.
One of the co-authors of the IARC report which found glyphosate to be ‘probably carcinogenic,’ professor Christopher Portier says that there is ‘no doubt in his mind’ that Mon [...]
According to new research, city dwellers are more likely to be stressed, depressed, and suffer from mental illness, while nature-seeking individuals experience better health.
There’s something about staring at concrete and hearing the constant roar of traffic every day that makes life a bit gloomier.
People living in urban settings have a 20% higher risk of anxiety disorders and a 40% higher risk of mood disorders as people who live in rural areas. Urban dwellers that were born and raised in t [...]
Healthful food choices are becoming increasingly abundant in the United States – this can be exemplified by the fact that organics are booming like crazy. But as many as 23.5 million people in this country don’t have access to this overflow of nutrition because they live in “food deserts” – areas of the country where there are no grocery stores but plenty of mini-marts offering sugar-filled snacks and artery clogging prepared foods. 
Low-income citizens also lack the funds to p [...]
Patients who take antidepressants with painkillers could be setting themselves up for deadly adverse events, new research suggests.
In a study published in BMJ, researchers said that taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with antidepressants increases the risk of intracranial bleeding, which occurs in the skull. Scientists cautioned that the study doesn’t prove NSAIDs cause the bleeding, but said the possibility needs to be further explored. Popular over-the-counter (OTC) NSAIDs [...]
The importance of cleaning up our oceans has become a front-and-center issue, as it should be. From a 19-year-old’s creation of an ocean clean-up array meant to clean up the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ to the development of eco-friendly plastic alternatives, we’re all doing our best to save one of the most precious resources we have on this planet. In addition to the plastic trash, drift nets are cluttering the homes of countless marine animals. So now companies are working to help thi [...]
The German Beekeepers Association (DIB), which represents almost 100,000 beekeepers, has called for a nationwide ban on GMO cultivation according to reports from the German NGO keine-gentechnik.de.
This call for a ban follows controversial legislation that has allowed EU member states to opt-out of GM cultivation even though it has been approved at the European Union level.
Though GM supporters have been angry about the new law, calling it ‘unfounded’ and stating that it ‘lacks scientific [...]
Is there anything more quintessentially American in the eyes of the world than baseball and Apple Pie? Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, has made way for a new ‘American Dream’ with a roof top garden bursting with organic produce. Hopefully this will become the real American look.
Fenway Farms in Boston proper will provide organically-grown food for menu items at the EMC Club, operated by Aramark Corp., which oversees the food concessions in the park. Everything from arugula and spinach to o [...]
