Conventional Sodium Advice WRONG, Large Study Confirms

Conventional Sodium Advice WRONG, Large Study Confirms

A large international study conducted in 17 countries and recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine has found the advice given by doctors to their heart patients and others with regard to sodium has been WRONG.

Conventional advice given by most Western doctors and even published by the U.S. Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion – part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – has recommended that those under 50 years old limit their sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams per day, and those over 50 limit their sodium consumption to less then 1,500 milligrams per day.

Dental Caries and Periodontitis Linked to Hardening of the Arteries

Dental Caries and Periodontitis Linked to Hardening of the Arteries

Research from Austria has confirmed that dental caries are specifically linked with atherosclerosis – the hardening of the arteries – a major component of most heart diseases.

The researchers – from Austria's Innsbruck Medical University – utilized computed tomography along with standard dental instrumentation to analyze 292 patients – 137 women and 155 men. The patients had an average age of 54 years old.

The researchers counted the number of cavities and decaying teeth surfaces among the patients. They also measured their progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease – gum disease – in addition to measuring the amount of jaw bone loss.

Incurable Me Review

book review by Brett Wilcox

Incurable Me Review

They say that hindsight is 20/20. That’s certainly true of our current understanding of notoriously bad medical treatments from yesteryear. Remember bloodletting? Leaches? Lobotomies? But what about today’s medical treatments? What will our children and grandchildren look back on and ask, “How could those people have been so blind?”

Nuts Drop Risks of Pancreatic Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease

Nuts Drop Risks of Pancreatic Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease

Adding to the many benefits of nuts including reducing heart disease, researchers from Harvard Medical School have determined that increasing our intake of nuts decreases our risk of diabetes and pancreatic cancer.

The researchers followed 75,680 women from the Nurses' Health Study – started in 1976 and expanded in 1989. The researchers measured nut consumption among the subjects and updated it every two to four years.

Those who ate at least one ounce of nuts twice a week had a 35% lower incidence of pancreatic cancer and a 32% lower incidence of diabetes.

Red Meat Consumption & Heart Disease

 

Nutritionists hardly need more evidence about the potentially negative health effects of eating red meat. For starters, the saturated animal fat in red meat contributes to heart disease and atherosclerosis. Recent research also shows that frequent red meat eaters face twice the risk of colon cancer as those who indulge less often. Red meat is also thought to increase the risks of rheumatoid arthritis and endometriosis.

Second Hand Smoke Proven Cause for Heart Disease and Stroke

Second Hand Smoke Proven Cause for Heart Disease and Stroke

Researchers from New York University have confirmed that second hand smoke results in significantly increased incidence of heart disease and stroke among household members who do not smoke.

The researchers reviewed studies from 14 different nations where second hand smoke had a high prevalence. In these countries – primarily low- to middle-income nations – the males in the household were the primary smokers, while the females were the non-smokers – and by default, the second-hand smokers.

The average smoking prevalence among the males was 22% to 60%, while only 0.5% to 24% of the women smoked. This left these women to suffer second hand smoke inhalation.

The Absurd Economics of Nutrition and Exercise


The Absurd Economics of Nutrition and Exercise

It's fair to say that, to a large extent, America has long fostered a culture and environment conducive to physical inactivity and nutritional-based disease.

With today's prevailing science clearly showing that teaching and practicing lifestyle medicine significantly decreases the top chronic health conditions plaguing society — i.e. diabetes, obesity, heart disease and certain cancers — moving more firmly in this healthier, logical direction would subsequently trigger a vast increase in human productivity and output, thus creating a major boon to both population health and our national treasury.

The Fat Wars

The Fat Wars

Perhaps nowhere in health has there been more confusion than the confusion caused by fat. The question of which fats are healthy and which fats are unhealthy has led to some pretty unhealthy diets, including extreme no fat diets that attempt to eliminate fat as much as possible with no attention to the differences between different fats

Recently, the confusion was placed in clear relief with the publication of dueling studies. The first exonerated saturated fat and vilified polyunsaturated fats; its opponent vilified saturated fats and championed unsaturated fats.

Turmeric (Curcumin) Shown to Possess a Powerful Anti-Aging Effect

Turmeric (Curcumin) Shown to Possess a Powerful Anti-Aging Effect

The latest, and most likely, program theory of aging is the telomere shortening theory. Telomeres are the end-cap segments of DNA (our genetic material). Each time a cell replicates, a small piece of DNA is taken off the end of each chromosome. The shorter the telomere gets, the more it affects gene expression. The result is cellular aging and an increased risk for immune dysfunction, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and other degenerative diseases.
