  1. Diet drug in frightening cancer link

    [WARNING] Weight-loss drug linked to deadly disease

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

    They cook up a drug they HOPE will make billions… and have NO CLUE if it’s safe or not.

    And the feds APPROVE it anyway! 

    Well, it’s happened again. They approved a diet drug BEFORE they knew it was safe.

    “But you gotta do more safety studies once it’s on the market,” they insisted, wagging a finger and winking at the same time (and maybe even insisting on a pinkie promise for good measure).

    And after YEARS of waiting… we finally have that study.

    You’re not gonna BELIEVE what they’ve been KEEPING from you all these years.

    So once again that leaves it to me to do what they won’t…and give you…

    • THE TRUTH about this drug
    • WHY you should avoid it, and
    • HOW to get the better results… with no meds.

    It’s a whole lot easier than you might think!

    Could this diet drug be hiding a DEADLY risk?

    About a decade back, the FDA actually did their job… briefly… and REJECTED the diet drug lorcaserin .

    The feds were CONCERNED about its safety -- specifically over its heart risk.

    Then, they had a change of heart.

    They approved it… and asked for safety research to be done AFTER the masses started taking it.

    Now that we have that research, the FDA says the data shows…

    DRUMROLL PLEASE…

    A link to cancer!

    So, what are the feds doing about it?

    Yep. You guessed it. Same thing they always do: a whole lotta nothing!

    They’re not pulling the drug from the market. They’re just suggesting patients and doctors “consider” the risks and benefits.

    Oh, and if you think the drug did something weird to you, you’re “encouraged” to let them know.

    Gee, thanks, guys. Really lookin’ out for us there.

    Besides that newly exposed cancer link, this drug is known for some pretty horrible possible side effects including nightmares, bladder pain, and – try not to wince when you read this – painful, bloody urine.

    It’s so bad that even if it WERE a weight-loss miracle… I wouldn’t TOUCH the horrid thing.

    But it’s not!

    In one study, just 40% of patients had “success” -- and don’t be fooled by that word.

    In this case, that “success” meant they lost a lousy 5% of body weight

    And it took a FULL YEAR to do it.

    If THAT’S what passes for success… I sure don’t want to see failure.

    By the way, you have to follow a diet and exercise plan while on the drug or it won’t work.

    Why even bother???

    If you’re so desperate for weight loss that you’re considering a drug, there’s a good chance you’re also at risk for diabetes (or maybe already have it).

    You can solve all your problems at once by ditching carbs.

    If your sweet tooth starts complaining, have a bowl of berries…

    But other than that: no sweets, no bread, no taters, no juice, you know the drill.

    And if you need more than weight loss… if you need a little help with blood sugar control… chromium, berberine, Gymnema sylvestre and even vanadium can all get you back on the right track.

  2. How to FIGHT the 5G attack...in a way that matters for YOUR health

    There’s a nightmare in the making right now – one we can SEE is about to happen.

    This is no joke…

    Some of the leading voices in science have even issued stark warnings over it.

    But it’s going to happen… and there’s not a darned thing ANY of us can do to stop it.

    We can’t, because it’s already here!

    It’s 5G -- quietly being rolled out right now, billed as the “next generation” of wireless communication.

    But take away the slick marketing… and what’s left?

    A mass experiment that will expose MILLIONS to new and terrifying health risks, including many we don’t even know yet.

    We might not be able to STOP the 5G rollout…

    But today, I’m going to share a weapon that can help arm your body against this new threat.

    What 5G is… and 2 ways to protect yourself from it

    Most people seem to think 5G, a.k.a. fifth-generation cellular wireless, is just better phone service or faster internet.

    And trust me -- they WANT you to think that.

    They desperately NEED us to believe that… and go about our busy lives… never even wondering what it really IS and DOES.

    But it’s NOT just better phone service and faster internet.

    It’s really bad news – and we don’t even have an INKLING as to how bad (not YET anyhoo).

    There have been NO real honest clinical trials on the long-term impact of these new millimeter-wave towers constantly BOMBARDING people.

    None.

    But we DO know this: The U.S. Army has used these same exact radio waves as a painful and devastatingly effective crowd control weapon called the Active Denial System.

    Now, of course they’re not going to crank it up to crowd control levels for everyday use. (Well, then again…)

    But even at lower levels, the risks are CHILLING.

    More than 240 scientists last year signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, warning of the dangers of nonionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF).

    They said 5G could include:

    “Increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.”

    YIKES!

    A 2018 review by Italian researchers notes the evidence is “still preliminary or controversial”…

    But it ALSO says straight up that the data we have so far “clearly point to the existence of multilevel interactions between high-frequency EMF and biological systems and to the possibility of oncologic and non-oncologic (mainly reproductive, metabolic, neurologic, microbiologic) effects.”

    By the way, oncologic = CANCER.

    An editorial last year in the highly respected journal Scientific American… one specifically focused on 5G… warned that long-term exposure could lead to cancer of the skin and eyes.

    Think short-term exposure is safe?

    According to that same editorial, even a little 5G exposure could lead to problems with:

    • peripheral nervous system
    • immune system
    • cardiovascular system

    YIKES, YIKES, and YIKES!

    Scientists are DEMANDING limits on exposure and a delay in implementing it.

    Instead, 5G is well in its way… exposure is INCREASING… satellites are LAUNCHING…

    And, in most cases, people don’t even realize it’s happening.

    Some communities are moving to restrict 5G -- and you should encourage the same in your town.

    The BEST action is usually LOCAL action. We can’t control the rest of the world… but at least we still have some (small) degree of power in our own communities.

    But the problem goes beyond 5G. You’re also exposed to radiation via microwave ovens, cellphones, power lines, routers, and more.

    Give your body a chance to fight back with these two weapons of your own:

    1. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), which can BLOCK the free radicals from sources such as radiation exposure, and
    2. Camellia sinensis, which can REVERSE the cellular damage of those free radicals.

  7. The Mysterious Link Between Processed Foods and Cancer

    Posted by: on

    cancer and processed foodsWe’ve known heavily processed foods are less healthy than raw foods for decades, but how much physical damage they can cause is only now truly beginning to be understood.

    It’s not just that they’re full of fat, sodium, and preservatives – as it turns out, heavily processed foods are directly linked to cancer.

    Even the so-called “healthy” alternatives in your frozen food or baking aisle aren’t really healthy.

    In fact, it doesn’t matter which aisle you’re in. If you’re buying a heavily processed food, it can be linked to cancer.

  11. The Ultimate Prostate Cancer Diet: Can You Prevent Prostate Cancer With Food?

    Diet prostate cancerThe topics are all over your television, news stream, and radio: how can you prevent prostate cancer?

    Is there a prostate cancer diet? What are your risks for prostate cancer?

    If you’re a man – or a woman who loves a man – you’ve probably realized prostate health should be a major focus of overall health.

    There’s a good reason for that.

    Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men, coming in behind skin cancer.

    And it’s the second deadliest cancer in men, as well.

    In fact, 1 in every 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point. Sadly, 1 in every 38 of those men will die from it.

    However, that doesn’t mean that prostate cancer is inherently a death sentence. More than 2.9 million men diagnosed with prostate cancer are still around, living life to its fullest.

    And perhaps the easiest way to prevent prostate cancer, and increase your odds of beating it, is through diet. Simple, healthy, and delicious changes to your diet can help you help your prostate! Continue reading

  12. Are Whole Grains Linked to Helping Fight Cancer?

    cancer fightWhen it comes to your health, it seems just about every food has been labeled the latest superfood.

    It’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not. And sometimes, let’s be honest – it doesn’t really matter.

    So long as food is healthy, it doesn’t have to be a superfood. It’s okay for it to just be good for you.

    But when it comes to cancer, you want more than promises or catch phrases.

    That’s where whole grains come in. Because whole grains aren’t just sold as a superfood – whole grains actually are linked to helping fight cancer.

  17. Shocking sleeping pill side effects force changes

    In case you’re keeping score, the FDA has been caught asleep at the wheel yet again. After ten years of being on the market, they’ve finally admitted that for more than 11 hours after taking Lunesta, the sleeping pill's side effects may severely impair a user’s memory, coordination and ability to perform everyday tasks. You know… tasks like driving a two-ton car down the same highway your child’s school bus takes.

  19. Health benefits of almonds: The perfect snack food?

    If you’re a regular reader of the Guide to Good Health you know I’m a firm believer in the power of nuts (being a health nut myself!). These delicious nutrition-packed wonders can do everything from boosting your energy levels to helping head off heart problems and fight cancer. In fact, according to one study, just 30 grams of nuts a day (a modest handful) could significantly reduce your stroke risk. A half a cup of mixed nuts a day drove down the blood sugar and cholesterol levels in a group of type-2 diabetics. And the vitamin E found in many nuts may help slash your risk of deadly pancreatic cancer. Now, a stack of new research on the health benefits of almonds—presented at the American Society of Nutrition Scientific Sessions and Annual Meeting in San Diego late last month—points to almonds as a way to help ward off obesity, metabolic issues, and heart problems.

    Better blood sugar with almonds

    A study of over 24,800 adults found that people who eat almonds tend to make better diet choices and have better overall health than non-almond eaters. And in a crossover, randomized clinical trial on the health benefits of almonds, overweight pregnant women who snacked on 2 ounces of almonds felt fuller… and as a result had a reduced appetite. In another analysis on the health benefits of almonds performed at Purdue University, researchers showed that people who eat 1.5 ounces of dry-roasted, lightly-salted almonds daily have better appetite control and healthier blood sugar levels, as well as higher vitamin E and monounsaturated healthy fat intake, than those who skip the healthy snack. But it gets even better with some real world results. The daily almond eaters, who were all at risk for type 2 diabetes, were also able to maintain healthy weight levels despite the fact that they had increased their calorie intake by 250 extra calories a day! And in yet another study, 52 adults with high cholesterol were able to reduce belly fat and slash their risk of heart and metabolic problems just by eating a modest serving (1.5 ounces) of almonds every day.
  20. Vitamin D deficiency could be deadly

    Barely a month goes by when we don’t see yet one more unfounded attack on a vital vitamin or necessary nutrient. It’s become so predictable you can practically set your watch by it. They won’t be satisfied until supplements are removed from the picture completely—and along with them, your freedom to choose. This time it’s vitamin D that’s been placed on the chopping block, a nutrient critical to combatting bone loss, cancer, heart disease, depression, weight gain, inflammation and very likely diabetes, autism, dementia, autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, high blood pressure, and more. In fact, this vitamin is SO critical to our health and wellbeing that frankly this latest review trashing this valuable vitamin—published in the April issue of the British Medical Journal (BMJ)—is downright irresponsible. Even worse, when you consider how many of us have a dangerously low vitamin D deficiency, taking the researcher’s conclusions seriously could be as good as signing your own death warrant. According to the researchers, “Despite a few hundred systematic reviews and meta-analyses, highly convincing evidence of a clear role of vitamin D does not exist for any outcome…” Nonsense! Besides, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that BAD science is going to lead to BAD results. And in the case of this BMJ-published “umbrella review,” they should have seen the bad coming from a mile away. Since the researchers chose to include flawed and poorly executed studies in the mix, it really isn’t surprising that the conclusions they reached are essentially rubbish, too.

    Vitamin D deficiency seriously bad for your health

    Let’s take a closer look at what research has already proven about vitamin D. But we’ll have to just hit some of the highlights, because we’d literally be here all day if I tried to cover EVERYTHING that D is good for. To begin with, despite its poor execution, the umbrella review in question still showed around an 11 percent drop in death risk for those taking a D supplement. In fact, study after study has shown us the value of this vitamin, demonstrating what a deficiency of D can lead to... starting with trouble for your ticker. In a seven-year collaboration, researchers from the University of Colorado and Massachusetts General Hospital uncovered evidence linking heart disease and vitamin D deficiency in men and women 65 or older. Seniors with the lowest levels of D were three times more likely to die from heart disease. And those volunteers who had a vitamin D deficiency at the start of the study were 2.5 times more likely to have died from ANY cause by the end of it. Now a new study confirms that if your vitamin D blood levels fall below 20 ng/mL (or 50 nmol/l), your risk of heart disease shoots up by a third. Even worse, if your levels dip into the dangerously low 10 ng/mL area, your risk for atherosclerosis (the hardening and narrowing of your arteries) doubles! But your heart isn’t the only organ that craves D: your brain is a big fan too. In fact, over the years research has linked D deficiencies to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even depression. And just last year, an animal study—published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine—showed us just how critical the vitamin is to cognitive performance and memory.

    D doesn’t just target organ health either… it’s a whole-body elixir that could help to both keep cancer at bay,and drive down your diabetes risk.

    Vitamin D targets whole body health

    Studies have shown an association between vitamin D and cancer risk, and many experts agree that the vitamin likely offers some protection against a variety of cancers including breast, colon, prostate and bladder cancers. Even mainstream medicine organizations, like The National Cancer Institute, agree that there’s epidemiological evidence linking adequate D levels to a reduced risk. Research has also revealed that vitamin D could play an important role in preventing diabetes. For example, a Tufts University study found that higher concentrations of D are associated with a lower diabetes risk. And then there’s the meta-analysis of more than 100,000 people that sheds some light on how it is that D may be driving down diabetes risk. Blood work from 28 different studies revealed that those men and women with the highest D levels tended to avoid the dreaded collection of pre-diabetes symptoms… including high blood pressure, high fasting blood sugars, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, and a large belly... that are commonly known as metabolic syndrome. The truth is that a vitamin D deficiency and diabetes link is so promising that even the mainstream medicine drones couldn’t ignore it anymore. Late last year the VERY mainstream National Institutes of Health (NIH) finally decided to fund a large-scale clinical trial to explore the effects of D on the disease. And those really are just a few of the D highlights. There are literally hundreds of studies linking D to good health. The evidence is so vast that public health guidelines here in the United States, as well as those in many other countries, recognize the critical importance of maintaining healthy D levels. Unfortunately, their D recommendations are entirely too low. That’s why up to 90 percent of us may be walking… or dragging… around with a vitamin D deficiency. Besides trying to spend a little bit of time every day outside in the sunshine, I typically recommend taking 2,000 to 4,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily. Your doctor can run a simple blood test to figure out what your current levels are.
