I am glad to find this rebuttal of the recent study reported that EFA’s cause prostate cancer. It made no sense, and this article does.

Here is a timely article on the importance of eating whole foods, and in a fairly conservative and very respectable publication, the New York Times. WE like the idea that food can be the answer to our ills, that if we eat nutritious foods we won’t need medicine or supplements. We have valued this notion […]
Urgent: Please donate today! 80% of all processed foods in the United States contain food that was grown using some form of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

A common thread amongst the most horrific school shootings of the past 25 years is that the majority of the shooters were taking a psychiatric medication.

Here is a mainstream study advocating the use of a special form of the B vitamin, folic acid. How does it work? To make neurotransmitters, we need methyl groups. If we don’t make methyl groups due to a genetic variation (could be as high as 30% of the population), we have trouble making neurotransmitters, and can become depressed. The solution? take methylfolate! It’s included in my Brain Recovery AM/PM packets and in Better Balance 2-a-Day multivitamins… [>> Read More]
