Subject: Aged garlic is incredibly good for your heart





Natural compounds found in aged garlic can be very beneficial to cardiac health. For example, a 2016 Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute study on subjects with metabolic syndrome found that aged garlic extract reduced both the accumulation of new plaque within the arteries and the total amount of plaque present as well. Additional research suggests that aged garlic extract can help reduce C-reactive protein and interleukin levels. The polysulfides in garlic also support greater production of the nitric oxide that helps keep your blood vessels supple, reducing another cardiac risk factor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Aged garlic has several health benefits to the cardiovascular system.
  • As heart disease effects many Americans, eating aged garlic can reduce the risk in 80% of the population.
  • Aged garlic reverses the effects of C protein, which is known to cause inflammation throughout the body.

"The LA BioMed researchers concluded that garlic not only decreased the amount of plaque in the arteries. The extract also stopped new plaque from appearing in the blood vessels. (Related: Aged garlic extract balances your cholesterol levels, study finds.)"

Liver damage is a growing epidemic

The damage that is being done to young people's livers is rising at an exponential rate. The amount of alcohol that these people drink is insane and their livers are starting to take some serious damage. It is sad because people learn about the negative effects of alcohol but they still decide to abuse it. The lasting effects that occur on their bodies are really bad and they are things that many people struggle with for many years.

Key Takeaways:

  • Liver cancer is affecting several Americans, approximately 41,000 each year, and it was the cause of death for 11,000 Americans in 2016.
  • Liver cirrhosis was earlier thought to take two or three decades before killing people has now been found to be killing 20- and 30-year olds.
  • Researchers have found that when there are financial troubles and unemployment, people drink more frequently, thereby, causing liver cirrhosis.

"According to researchers, the rise in cirrhosis mortality is entirely driven by excess alcohol consumption by young adults."

Australian father treats his daughters' Chron's disease by juicing cannabis... then gets raided by the government

As a parent, what would one not do to prevent a beloved child from suffering? One Australian father chose to break the law. Stephen Taylor is the father of two daughters, both afflicted with a very serious and chronic gastrointestinal disease that routinely causes fatigue, cramping, diarrhea, and even hemorrhaging.

The girls, Ariel and Morgan, had both failed to thrive while under conventional treatment options, even acquiring horrible side effects. So, Taylor took matters into his own hands. He tried and was unable to obtain legal permission to administer medical marijuana to his daughters. So, Taylor placed the girls on a regimen of home-grown cannabis juice on his own. The regimen proved efficacious, with both girls obtaining stellar results. Unfortunately, however, the authorities caught on, impounding the marijuana and charging Taylor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sufferers of Chron's disease typically experience, abdominal pain, exhaustion, weight loss, cramping, diarrhea and bleeding through the rectum.
  • One Australian father to daughters afflicted with Chron's placed his girls on a regiman of home-grown cannabis juice, with excellent results.
  • Unfortunately, the authorities caught on and impounded the cannabis and charged the father with criminal charges.

"Even though medical marijuana use has been legal in Australia since 2016, it is very difficult to obtain. Though experts estimate that around 100,000 Australians are self-medicating with cannabis for a variety of health problems, only 500 patients have official government authorization to do so."

Ten years ago Richard Holt was sleeping on the top bunk at a hostel next to an open window. He rolled over and fell 24 feet onto concrete. Somehow he landed on his feet, but ended up shattering his legs. He was given Oxycontin during his recovery. The drug was great at first. Then the grogginess and a crushing feeling replaced the warm and fuzzies. Through a grueling withdrawal period, he quit Oxycontin. The pain from is crushed legs endured. Luckily through Brazilian jiu-jitsu training partners, he learned about a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and cannabis called cannabidiol (CBD). Despite not containing THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, adaptation of CBD oil has slow. However, it is starting gain notice and momentum. In 2016, CBD oil has been legal in the UK and it's showed promise in several studies. One thing for sure, it helps Richard Holt.

Key Takeaways:

  • The CBD oil does not contain THC and is therefore not psychoactive
  • CBD oil can be used to treat cancerous tumors that would normally be lethal
  • helped a man who shattered his leg and heel alleviate pain from injuries in a way that nothing else could.

"Everyone that uses it tells a similar story: they sleep better and feel less pain."

Subject: What Happens to Your Brain When You Go on a Diet





People often go on diets because they want to lose weight. A good way to diet is by just substituting what you eat with healthier things. It's not good to eat much less, though, because your body needs certain nutrients and a certain amount of calories. This tells you what can happen to your brain if you do choose to diet. It might make you think a bit before doing so or at least before choosing an extreme one.

Key Takeaways:

  • Body weight is regulated by the brain and this is why diets don't work.When you are on a diet and your weight starts to change, your brain gets this signal and pushes back to maintain the old weight.
  • The hypothalamus in your brain controls your body temperature and acts as a thermostat but it also regulates body fat. Your brain establishes, what is referred to, as a set point weight.
  • To lower your set point weight over time, eat a healthy diet of unrefined, lower calorie and simple foods. Plus, lower stress and exercise. This will help lower and maintain your weight.

"In fact, though the risks of yo-yo dieting have been contested, one 2016 study found that repeatedly going through these starvation cycles prompts your body to gain more weight."

  • Cannabis stacks were even used as currency and in some states farmers were required to at least grow some hemp on their land.
  • More and more states are once again embracing this precious resource and the plentiful opportunities it offers.

"In 2016, seven states replaced archaic laws with new legislature, breaking down barriers that previously stood in the way of industrial hemp farming."

Subject: Is garlic the key to stopping this silent killer?





Garlic may do more for us than give our favorite dish more flavor. Research published in The Journal of Nutrition in 2016 shows that this delicious bulb is also effective at treating heart disease by preventing plaque from building up in key coronary arteries. Garlic also lowers cholesterol levels, reduces blood pressure, has antioxidant properties and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Altogether, these collective benefits make garlic a powerhouse tool in the battle against heart disease – without the negative side effects of medication.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists claim that garlic is an effective treatment for heart disease.
  • The nutrients in the garlic bulb prevent the calcification of coronary arteries by preventing plaque build up.
  • Garlic does not have the side effects of conventional medicines used to treat heart disease.

"It is crucial that proper lifestyle habits and diet be practiced to prevent heart disease."

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is known to have a myriad of health benefits and is becoming increasingly used to treat a variety of health conditions. It's even being used to treat pets for a growing number of conditions. It's also not intoxicating like many products with marijuana. For the many people who are wondering if CBD products will show up on a drug test, this article consults with a drug expert to find answers to this common question.

Key Takeaways:

  • its possible there are trace amounts of THC in cannabidiol to increase the effectiveness
  • the fda notified companies in 2015 & 2016 CBD labels were incorrect however they have still neglected the issue
  • The most responsible thing to do to insure the pass of a drug screen is to research the label of the mfg of the CBD to verify the potency/safety

"Both experts agree: As long as there is no THC in the CBD products, then a urine test would not yield a positive result for THC metabolites."

By now most of us know that saturated fats aren't healthy. Many restaurants have cut them out. It's not always easy to do this, especially if you don't know what to use instead, so this gives you good info. You can use coconut oil in many ways to replace saturated fats.

Key Takeaways:

  • we really have no good data on coconut oil’s ability to reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes.
  • Lauric acid is absorbed differently than palmitic acid, which could suggest that coconut oil doesn’t cause the same degree of LDL elevation as animal fat.
  • I believe that you should look at coconut oil as a saturated fat.

"A study published in the journal Nutrition Reviews in 2016 analyzed multiple studies and found no difference in the LDL cholesterol level between people who used coconut oil and people who used butter."

Subject: Cause of inflammation in diabetes identified





A reason why diabetics suffer from inflammation has been verified. Through research on mice, Washington University has discovered that if there is a lack of fat in a cell, that particular cell cannot produce any fat. While inflammation does not need to be completely prevented, this discovery could provide new methods of dealing with excess inflammation in diabetics.

Key Takeaways:

  • Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications.
  • Too much fat in the diet promotes insulin resistance by spurring chronic inflammation.
  • Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have developed a way to block production of fatty acids in these immune cells in mice and protect them from diet-induced diabetes.

"Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications."

Subject: Marijuana could help treat drug addiction, mental health, study suggests





Marijuana may become legal in Canada as early as next year. With that in mind, researchers are trying to determine if the drug might have more implications than just for recreation. They have been reviewing all studies available on marijuana to see if there is a link between the use of cannabis and health. What they found is that the substance may be helpful in getting addicts off of alcohol and opioids. It may also reduce symptoms of PTSD, depression, and anxiety. More research needs to be done, but the possibilities are promising.

Key Takeaways:

  • Using marijuana could help some alcoholics and people addicted to opioids kick their habits, a UBC study has found.
  • This comprehensive review of research on medical cannabis use and mental health also found some evidence that cannabis may help with symptoms of depression, PTSD and social anxiety.
  • However, the review concluded that cannabis use might not be recommended for conditions such as bipolar disorder and psychosis.

"Research suggests that people may be using cannabis as an exit drug to reduce use of substances that are potentially more harmful, such as opioid pain medication"

Key Takeaways:

  • Being a foodie and being a diabetic is one bad combination that one must never have.
  • A diabetic will be stripped off their privilege to eat whatever they feel like and nothing else is more depressing than this.
  • Foods with high carbohydrate content is a big no-no for them, as the blood sugar levels will shoot upwards due to this.

Subject: Why you should consider eating these insects this holiday season





In many places around the globe insects are part of people's regular diet. This is called Entomophagy. It has many benefits for the environment and for the individuals who practice it, including a high protein content compared to other food sources. Find out the unbelievable in this absolutely amazing and crazy article!

Key Takeaways:

  • Entomophagy is the human use of insects as food.
  • Entomophagy has many health and environmental benefits including increased protein and decreased greenhouse gases.
  • Next time you enjoy cheese and crackers, consider a sprinkle of ants on top!

"Different ants have different flavors -- from sweet to savory - but for Lemann they are a nice way to introduce skeptics to a bug meal."

What are heart failure, heart attack and cardiac arrest?

Subject: What are heart failure, heart attack and cardiac arrest?





Though all types of heart trouble pose emergency threats to people's health, there are many differences between them in terms of both causes and symptoms. "Heart failure" refers to some loss of the heart's successful function as a pump; "congestive heart failure" applies more specifically to when blood flow has backed up, causing the swelling of veins. A "heart attack" occurs when blood flow to the heart is cut off - sometimes, this is caused by a spasm. But if the heart suddenly stops beating, that is a "cardiac arrest", and is a problem with the timed electrical signals that make the heart contract.

Key Takeaways:

  • Singer George Michael passed away on Christmas Day, at age 53.
  • His manager, Michael Lippman, cited heart failure as the cause of death.
  • If Michael's heart not only failed but also stopped beating entirely, he would have had minutes for doctors to intervene.

"Blockages causing heart attacks are mostly caused by a buildup of plaque in the arteries."

Contrary to popular belief it's OK to eat during a workout if you get hungry. Why starve yourself? All that does is trigger your body into storing fat. You just need to know which foods are best. This talks about that. Use this to decide what to eat and you won't end up undoing your workout altogether.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is well known that what you eat before, during, and after you exercise can make or break a workout and affect your results.
  • Before you exercise, load up on carbs, and ensure you stay hydrated during your workout.
  • After you exercise, munch on protein - including dairy products, eggs, and meat to maximize your gains.

"So what do nutritionists recommend to munch on? It turns out that quality carbohydrates are important pre-workout and lean proteins post-workout, experts say."

Subject: Evidence points to fish oil to fight asthma





Based on evidence, it turns out that fish oil can help fight asthma. The omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil can help to fight asthma. This is what a lot of scientists at universities are saying. There was a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in December of 2016 that showed pregnant women, who ate fish, or took fish oil supplements had a lower risk of having kids with asthma.

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids have myriad health benefits, and high quality supplements may be beneficial
  • Asthma patients who took omega-3 supplements experienced a reduction in the antibodies that cause asthma, but the supplements were not as effective in those on corticosteroids
  • Steroids may interfere with omega-3 fatty acids' effects on asthma symptoms, and over time may reduce the body's ability to combat asthma on its own

"Steroids are usually a very effective treatment for asthma."

Subject: Possible new head of the FDA is a supporter of medical marijuana … Could Trump's FDA finally stop suppressing cannabis?





Back on November 8th 2016 there was much celebration among the marijuana community. There were four more states that legalized adult use cannabis and several, including Florida, that legalized medical marijuana.  However, there was still a lump in the back of many of our throats.  Sessions has a long standing anti-drug stance and has made some strong comments against cannabis legalization. Recently the Trump administration has made a surprising announcement when they confirmed previous reports that Jim O'Neil is being considered to lead the Food and Drug Administration.

Key Takeaways:

  • For decades, cannabis advocates have pushed for universal legalization of medical marijuana. Citing scientific study after scientific study, they have forcefully (and truthfully) argued that legalization would provide much needed relief to millions of people suffering from a host of medical ailments.
  • But the federal government has only responded with continued bans and regulatory restrictions that have limited access to the many who wish to freely choose this alternative medical treatment. In fact, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has now technically reclassified cannabis extracts as a Schedule I substance, putting them in the same category as heroin.
  • Now, however, the nightmarish over-regulation of cannabis may be about to be dismantled. President Donald J. Trump may be about to nominate someone to head up the Food and Drug Administration who believes in, and is a fan of, medical marijuana.

Subject: Demand for CBD still outstrips supply despite production expansion, hemp grower says





Industrial hemp is an industry that is apparently booming both in supply and demand. A grower based company in Kentucky reported that about two million dollars was paid to growers for the 2016 crop. But despite this, the demand for industrial hemp still far exceeds the supply, according to an officer from the company.

Key Takeaways:

  • The supply of industrial hemp is ramping up quickly, as a company formed by growers in Kentucky reported $2 million in payments to farmers for the 2016 crop. But demand for CBD still far outstrips supply, a company officer said.
  • The company, called Atalo Holdings Inc. a diversified industrial hemp research and production company in Winchester, KY., announced the payouts to their growers’ group yesterday. The company’s officers are all also growers themselves.
  • Atalo claims to be one of the largest hemp companies operating in the US. For the 2016 growing year, the company has 58 growers enlisted in the program with 2,466 acres approved for hemp production.

Subject: Spinning out of control: Vertigo





Vertigo can occur many situations. One of the most common manifestations of vertigo occurs when someone travels on a boat. While on a boat, particularly when not standing on the deck, your visual system indicates that there is not much movement, and your surroundings appear still. ear, on the other hand, is telling your brain that there is back and forth rocking movement, which naturally occurs with sea travel. The result is that one part of the brain is registering movement while the other part of the brain is registering no movement.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vertigo isn’t just a catchy song by the band U2, but is also a common symptom that has multiple potential causes.
  • There is your visual system, which tells you where your body is in space and time in relation to your surroundings.
  • There is the sensory system, which allows your feet to send information to your brain about the terrain you are walking on. A third system, the vestibular system, often goes unappreciated in day-to-day life, but can cause havoc when not working properly.

"To understand vertigo, one must understand that our sense of balance comes from multiple different systems in the body."

Many fail when it comes to following through on their resolutions each New Year. If you want to be more successful, try making a resolution to change small life habits that will make your life better in the long run. Set a goal to make a habit of something that will get you to your real goal in the future. For instance, strive to go to the gym at least once a week. Once that is met, increase it until you are more comfortable. This can help you lose weight. Prioritize and be proactive and it will happen.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adults and teens alike often achieve results by setting goals and taking actionable steps to reach those goals.
  • Most adults and teens understand what it means to set a goal. Whether you want to learn a new language, lose 20 pounds, write a book or train for a 5K, you set a goal and then take action to reach your dream.
  • You evaluate what you need to do to reach that goal, such as buying books on the language, listening to podcasts or CDs, watching YouTube videos, visiting a foreign country or taking college classes.

Subject: New class of hydrogen sulfide donor molecules





One of the most destructive forces in our bodies is oxidative stress. This causes a breakdown of molecules within the body, which then leads to problems such as heart attacks, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. The University of Oregon has just released a study showing that they were able to design organic molecules that can be used to release hydrogen sulfide when oxidative stress triggers it. This compound functions to restore molecular stability within the body. This is just the first step in producing new drugs for treating currently life-threatening conditions.

Key Takeaways:

  • The research -- done at a cellular level in the lab and far from medical reality -- involves the design of organic molecules that break down to release hydrogen sulfide when triggered by specific conditions such as increased oxidative stress.
  • Oxidative stress damages cells and is tied especially to heart disease and cancer, as well as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
  • Separate portions of the research were detailed in proof-of-concept papers in the Journal of the American Chemical Society in June and in November in Angewandte Chemie, an international journal.

Subject: Scientists discover new mechanism of how brain networks form





As long as neurological disorders have been diagnosed, scientists have tried to determine how the brain works in order to better treat them. One thing we do know about the brain is that it creates maps of experiences that help us learn. As we learn, these maps are altered to adapt to our surroundings. Excitatory neurons in the brain have been found to narrow their scope upon learning new information. Inhibitory neurons, conversely, have recently been found to get broader when learning. This new understanding of neurons will go far in efforts to repair brain tissue.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have discovered that networks of inhibitory brain cells or neurons develop through a mechanism opposite to the one followed by excitatory networks.
  • Excitatory neurons sculpt and refine maps of the external world throughout development and experience, while inhibitory neurons form maps that become broader with maturation.
  • Knowing how the normal brain works is an important step toward understanding the nature of neurological conditions and opens the possibility of finding treatments in the future.

When it comes to new years resolutions, one of the resolutions that you should consider for the new year is a gut makeover. When it comes to long term health investments, reestablishing the community of microbes and bacteria that make up your intestinal tract can be one of the best ones in general. A diminished microbial system can have consequences that extend for a long period of time, which is why this makes for a great long term new years resolution.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you’re making resolutions for a healthier new year, consider a gut makeover.
  • Much of the composition of the microbiome is established early in life, shaped by forces like your genetics and whether you were breast-fed or bottle-fed.
  • Changing your diet to one containing a variety of plant-based foods, the new research suggests, may be crucial to achieving a healthier microbiome.

"A diminished microbial ecosystem, on the other hand, is believed to have consequences that extend far beyond the intestinal tract, affecting everything from allergies and inflammation, metabolic diseases like diabetes and obesity, even mental health conditions like depression and anxiety."

Recently a new study has found that welders that are exposed to airborne manganese at some estimated levels that are under safety standards set by federal law have developed neurological problems. In general the current standards that are set for safety might not be adequate enough to protect welders from the dangers that come with it.

Key Takeaways:

  • This is the first study that shows clinically relevant health effects that are occurring at estimated exposures that are an order of magnitude lower than the OSHA limit.
  • Each participant also underwent at least two standardized clinical evaluations of motor function spaced a year or more apart and using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale.
  • The evaluations were performed by trained neurologists looking for signs of neurological damage such as muscle stiffness, gait instability, reduced facial expressions and slow movement.good

""We found that chronic exposure to manganese-containing welding fumes is associated with progressive neurological symptoms such as slow movement and difficulty speaking," said Brad A. Racette, MD, a professor of neurology and the study's senior author."

  • Most interestingly, the study also demonstrated that a less protein-rich meal based on beans and peas was as satiating and tasty as the protein-rich veal and pork-based meals.

"Meals based on legumes such as beans and peas are more satiating than pork and veal-based meals according to a recent study by the University of Copenhagen's Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports."

Subject: Can diet pills help you lose weight?





There is a small minority of people that find diet pills helpful along with a diet and exercise program. When it comes to diet pill options, some of the limited prescription options include two drugs that are FDA approved for longer term use for weight loss in general. Some of the over counter remedies include Ephedrine, Chitosan, as well as a few others. However when it comes down due it while drugs offer an answer to part of the weight loss problem, exercise is also a crucial part of weight loss.

Key Takeaways:

  • Everyone knows that a combination of diet and exercise is the best way to lose weight. But many of us have tried this, over and over again, without lasting success.
  • The Food and Drug Administration treats obesity drugs differently than it does other drugs.
  • People report they feel full and more energetic. Because it can increase blood pressure, it must not be used in people with hypertension, and blood pressure must be regularly monitored while using the medication.

Subject: How rooibos can protect you against the sun





Rooibos tea is a versatile drink. Researchers have determined it can undo some of the damage caused by harmful rays of the sun. Scientists have been studying how rooibos protects against inflammation of skin cells for the past eleven years. Rooibos extracts are able to remove precancerous damaged cells and block the beginning of inflammation after the skin has been exposed to the sun’s ultra-violet rays. There are more tests that must be done before an after sun exposure product will be available for purchase.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers believe that rooibos tea can undo some of the damage caused by the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Preliminary findings show that rooibos extracts are more effective during the early stages of skin cancer development, as they are able to facilitate the removal of UVB damaged cells, thereby delaying their development into a tumour.
  • It’s the abundance of polyphenols (antioxidants) – natural compounds found in rooibos – that give it its restorative power. These compounds are linked with the prevention of various chronic disorders, including skin cancer.

"About 80 per cent of sun-induced skin damage occurs before the age of 18, therefore it is imperative to take special care of children in the sun."

Subject: These Essential Vitamins Are A Must Have After You Turn 40 - BoldSky





There are certain birthdays that send a mental shockwave through our body and one of those is when we reach 40. One way we combat this is by supplementing with vitamins and once you hit the big 4-0 you need vitamin b12. B12 is needed for normal functioning of the brain and for normal blood function. Another two big ones are calcium and vitamin D. Meat is a great source and your body can absorb enough when you are younger but as you age, your body becomes less able to absorb as much through food.

Key Takeaways:

  • After a person turns forty there are certain essential vitamins that must be taken at all cost in order to prevent diseases that come with ageing.
  • Vitamin B12 is one of them. It is essential for the proper functioning of the brain and for normal blood function
  • Calcium, Vitamin D, and Magnesium are also required by people over forty.

"Calcium intake is necessary to prevent several diseases like heart attack, stroke and osteoporosis and also to prevent fracture."

With health care costs and the price of prescription drug costs on the rise many people are looking for alternative treatments, including natural remedies. While big pharmaceutical companies try to discount the benefits of natural remedies, proponents provide interesting information about the benefits. Check out the article for some recent news regarding natural approaches to medicine

Key Takeaways:

  • Good medicine should strive vigorously to do no harm to patients, while providing the knowledge and pathways for individuals to heal themselves.
  • Healthcare should empower patients with strong mindset, not fear of disease. The system should work to prevent health problems instead of trying to capitalize on managing and creating new problems.
  • Today’s allopathic system oftentimes seems like a cult, heavily influenced by pharmaceutical companies. Allegiant to synthetic drugs and standard procedures, MD’s often shun anything that’s natural.

Subject: Is CBD Crystalline the Most Effective Cannabis Medicine?





Information regarding the use of medicinal marijuana has been in high demand over the past few years. This article discusses the positive impacts and benefits of CBD. There are several conditions that cannabinoids have been shown to benefit. Check out the article for those conditions and the progress researchers have been making

Key Takeaways:

  • Sanjay Gupta's 2013 documentary “Weed” was one of the first mainstream attempts at exposing a suspicious audience to the seemingly miraculous effects of cannabis-derived CBD.
  • Gupta’s coverage of four-year-old Charlotte Figi stole the hearts of people worldwide. It caused parents of children suffering from epileptic seizures to wonder if CBD was the answer.
  • With a purity of 99%, CBD Crystalline is a perfect treatment option for patients nervous about the “high” related with cannabis therapy.

"CBD provides no psychoactive effects when ingested, but being that it is derived from cannabis, the potential life-saving compound is still considered a Schedule 1 substance with “no medicinal value.” This obstacle blocks many professional research facilities from conducting experiments with CBD to truly put its healing abilities to the test, at least in the United States."

Subject: Sunlight offers surprise benefit: It energizes infection fighting T cells





Have you ever been at work and thought about how nice it must be outside? According to researchers, the sunlight may be even more beneficial for us. According to their research, sunlight increases the movement of T cells. The increased movement in cells can help activate key immune cells by increasing their movement.

Key Takeaways:

  • Georgetown University Medical Center researchers have found that sunlight, through a mechanism separate than vitamin D production, energizes T cells that play a central role in human immunity.
  • They specifically found that low levels of blue light, found in sun rays, makes T cells move faster, marking the first reported human cell responding to sunlight by speeding its pace.
  • Production of vitamin D required UV light can promote skin cancer and melanoma. Blue light from the sun, as well as from special lamps, is safer.

"Sunlight allows us to make vitamin D, credited with healthier living, but a surprise research finding could reveal another powerful benefit of getting some sun."

Subject: These Are the Drugs That Cause the Most Overdose Deaths





A new report has shown that the number of deaths caused by an overdose of Fentanyl has doubled in a single year. The Food and Drug Administration has issued warnings and guidelines to combat the rising epidemic that has effected more than 1.9 million people since 2013. While Heroin is the most dangerous and addictive drug, causing over 10,000 deaths per year, Fentanyl is on the rise.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating a balanced diet is a healthy choice, especially a mix of plant and animal based foods
  • Avoid high energy density foods as they do not provide a variety of nutrients a
  • the environment where one eats may have more influence on how food is digested than one might guess, so calm and peaceful is best

"Drug overdoses killed 50,000 Americans last year."

Well: Are Hydroponic Vegetables as Nutritious as Those Grown in Soil?

Subject: Well: Are Hydroponic Vegetables as Nutritious as Those Grown in Soil?





What kind of solution the vegetables are grown in makes a difference in how nutritious they are. Hydroponics has come a long way also in growing vegetables just as nutritious as those grown in soil. Plants traditionally get nutrients from soil. Plants get nutrients from a solution with hydroponics instead of soil.

Key Takeaways:

  • This article contends that vegetables grown hydroponically (in a special solution instead of in soil) can be just as nutritious, if not more, than those grown the traditional way in soil.
  • Plants make their own vitamins, so vitamin levels tend to be similar in both growing methods, and you can add minerals and other elements to the solution to make up for any that might be missing.
  • Nutrient content varies anyway for produce in general, regardless of the growing method, and besides, all vegetables are healthy if you eat a lot of them!

"The bottom line is it depends on the nutrient solution the vegetables are grown in, but hydroponically grown vegetables can be just as nutritious as those grown in soil."
