For those suffering from prostate, esophageal, colorectal and lung cancer, you may want to take note. Selenium is a naturally occurring trace element which is a constituent of more than two dozen selenoproteins that play critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection.
It also is a cancer preventative like nobody’s business! Studies from Cornell University and the University of Arizona alike show that those who [...]
Many studies point to the genetic risks of offspring ‘created’ with an older man’s sperm. Not only do men over 40 have a hard time with infertility, but the quality of their sperm is often compromised, making genetic abnormalities more frequent. There is hope, though.

Paleo people, don’t chastise me yet! I’m not pushing a vegetarian diet. This is simply an attempt at pointing out how vegetarians and vegans can maintain a high level of protein intake with plant based foods. Just don’t forget to include bio-available sub-lingual or patch methylcobalamin B12 supplements, as a plant-based diet will often leave you B12-depleted. Vitamin B12 prices are usually reasonable.
For the record, I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, one who consumes dairy produ [...]

There is a huge disparity in water availability in California, and with the recent news of a drought, it makes it extremely rough on farmers trying to grow food crops. Californians have even been urged to reduce their water consumption by at least 20% in recent days.
Despite the current drought, some areas of the state might expect more than 100 inches of rain annually while others can expect barely an inch, such as in Death Valley. This causes an equally varied and widely fluctuating cost for [...]
