  1. [Urgent] THIS med given to cancer patients could SKYROCKET stroke risk

    There's a drug out there that's used across the nation to help some of our SICKEST and WEAKEST patients cope with one of the WORST side effects of cancer care.

    But the TRULY sickening thing ISN'T the treatment.

    And it's not the cancer.

    It's what this drug could do to you!

    A new report shows how patients given a med to fight nausea could face something a whole lot WORSE than the heaves…

    And, in some cases, even worse than the cancer itself.

    It could lead DIRECTLY to one of the nation's TOP CAUSES of both disability and death.

    Most patients have HEARD the horror stories of cancer treatment… and they EXPECT the side effects.

    But when they hit…

    When you actually FEEL them firsthand…

    You realize pretty quick that NOTHING you've heard has TRULY prepared you for the nightmare you just stepped into.

    The most common and often most debilitating side effect of conventional cancer care is constant, chronic nausea.

    In some cases, you can't go ANYWHERE without a bucket!

    It can make it impossible to make plans… do stuff… and even just handle normal activity…

    Including showing up for treatment.

    Docs often prescribe a class of medication called antidopaminergic antiemetics for cancer patients with severe nausea (as well as for other, non-cancer patients with other issues, such as migraines).

    But you don't want these meds for ANY reason -- because the new study finds they can MORE THAN TRIPLE your risk of an ischemic stroke!

    That's the most common form of stroke, where clots form and clog up the pipes to your brain… cutting off the supply of blood.

    That can lead to severe damage… including permanent problems and in some cases even death.

    Men face a higher risk than women here.

    And two drugs in particular – metopimazine and metoclopramide – appear to present the BIGGEST danger.

    But whether you're a guy or a gal, you want to avoid ALL drugs in this class…

    Especially since you have another option.

    There's a widely known treatment for nausea that's proven to work, even in cancer patients… but most docs won't even MENTION it.

    It's ginger.

    Cook with it… get some ginger chews… or even sip some ginger ale (this is just about the ONLY time you'll ever hear me suggest a soda).

    Ginger is safe and delicious – but if you hate the taste, ginger capsules are readily available.

    It works wonders for nausea… and it won't give anyone a stroke.

    In fact, it's a very mild blood thinner… so ginger could actually help IMPROVE circulation, instead of causing a blockage.

    Now, if you do ever find yourself suffering from a stroke for ANY reason, remember that EVERY second counts.

    Don't wait – get help right away.

  2. HIDDEN mineral could RESTORE lost brain function

    Some days, you can almost FEEL the brain cells short-circuiting.

    When that word is STUCK on the tip of your tongue…

    When you're standing next to your car, keys in hand, WONDERING just where in the heck you were going again…

    When you've answered the phone, recognize the voice, but just CAN'T place the name…

    Yes, friend, those li'l "brain burps" are all humbling reminders that you're NOT as young as you used to be.

    And neither is your memory.

    But new research reveals a way to potentially get that LOST cognitive capacity back.

    Because you can actually GROW fresh new brain cells to REPLACE the ones that have been dropping off…

    And all you gotta do is give your body a key mineral to help it make those cells!

    One way to grow new brain cells is with exercise. And OF COURSE you should get some daily activity.

    But the latest research reveals ANOTHER way…

    One that can MIMIC or ENHANCE the effect of exercise inside the brain… and help that crucial regeneration process along.

    It's with selenium – considered a "trace" mineral because you need very little of it.

    Yet most folks don't get even those LOW amounts… often due to factory farming, in which your food is grown in lifeless soil, DEVOID of the minerals.

    When there are no minerals in the soil… there are no minerals in the food.

    A new study on old mice looked at what happens in the brain when those "trace" levels ARE reached.

    It's as if a switch was flicked on… and EVERYTHING came back to life!

    That process of brain cell regeneration… which had been slowed by age… kicked into overdrive.

    The mice began pumping out new neurons…

    And neurons are the key to everything, as they relay information within the brain… control muscle… and more.

    The MORE neurons you have… the BETTER the brain function.

    And in the study, researchers watched as the mice got YOUNGER, cognitively speaking.

    They began to show the cognitive skills they had lost – the sweet and satisfying brainpower of youth.

    All thanks to this single mineral!

    The team repeated the study on younger mice that had a stroke and lost cognitive power as a result. And it worked on them, too.

    Again, this is a trace mineral… so don't buy a jar of selenium capsules and start eating them like Tic Tacs.

    You just need the RIGHT AMOUNT.

    The BEST source of selenium is Brazil nuts -- but I don't know anyone who eats Brazil nuts every day.

    I love nuts myself… and I can't tell you the last time I even SAW a Brazil nut. A jar of mixed nuts usually has maybe four of them.

    The EASIEST way to get selenium is with a multivitamin. Most good ones contain 100% of your daily selenium.

    If yours doesn't… shop around for a new one.

    And don't forget what I shared with you last week about how "beige fat" could also help SAVE your brain.

    If you missed it, just click here to catch up.
