The number of heartbeats per lifetime is remarkably similar whether you’re a hamster all the way up to a whale. So, mice, who typically live less than two years, have a heart rate of about 500 to 600 beats a minute—up to 10 beats a second. In contrast, the heart of a Galapagos tortoise beats 100 times slower, but they live about 100 times longer. There’s such a remarkable consistency in the number of heartbeats animals get in their lifetimes that a provocative question was asked: “Can human life be extended by cardiac slowing?” Continue reading
… and it’s still down four months later
Editor’s NOTE: We rarely post any article of a ‘news’ related matter, however this “story” (although we would rather see FedGov out of the health ‘care’ business) seemed worthy of posting, and yet – there appears to be two (what I would call) unrelated issues going on here. Don’t be led down the garden path. ~ Ed.
The breast cancer information page was deleted from the US government’s health site in December and has not been replaced, a new report has revealed. Continue reading
Nearly 610,000 Americans die of heart disease in the United States every year, making it the leading cause of mortality in the nation. According to holistic cardiologist Joel Kahn, MD, many of these deaths are completely avoidable. (and, I couldn’t agree more with that statement)
In fact, Dr. Kahn asserts that almost 80 percent of heart disease is preventable with simple lifestyle changes. Obviously, the right nutrition (and attitude) is essential to healing the heart and maintaining a strong cardiovascular system. Yet, too many people remain in the dark about the proper way to effectively prevent cardiovascular issues. (plus, in many cases, the significance of “prevention” is often overlooked) Continue reading
The only reason why chemotherapy is still used in current times is because it is a huge profit maker. Lives are not as important as money when it comes to the Big Pharma.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death here in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one of every four deaths is caused by cancer. In just 2014 alone 591,686 people died of cancer. Continue reading
Glyphosate usage has gotten so out of control that it’s seemingly taken on a life of its own and is now showing up even in foods that haven’t been directly sprayed, namely the grapes used to make organic wine.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is the most used agricultural chemical in history. It’s used in a number of different herbicides (700 in all), but Roundup is by far the most widely used. Continue reading
Perchlorate (sometimes referred to as Perchlorate 7) is a hidden danger that has been rising to the surface over the last decade. Perchlorate effects the thyroid and is classified as a “known carcinogen” by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The good news about this dangerous substance, however, is that there are concrete ways to minimize exposure and to protect yourself.
They swarm around your just-sprouting flowerbeds and their presence is a sure-fire sign that spring has sprung. I’m talking about bees, of course. These gentle buzzing creatures are about a lot more than pollinating flowers, however. Science is confirming that bees are also beneficial for human health as well.
Apitherapy is the art and science of using bee products and venom for healing. Here’s how it may be able to help you.
NOTE: While we applaud serious researchers, we continue to disagree with the “treatments” offered which include chemotherapy or radiation – – however – there is much to consider within the following for all who choose a different path in their lives. ~ Ed.
The trillions of bacteria living in our gut (called the gut microbiota) can help determine our risk of cancer, as well as how we might respond to cancer treatment.
Cancer starts growing on and in the skin where excess toxins start accumulating. Each cancer cell absorbs destructive toxins. Cancer cells continue to grow in size and number as long as excess toxins are found outside the existing cancer cells.
The purpose of the cancer cells is to isolate harmful excess toxins by engulfing them so those toxins securely remain inside the cancer cells. Continue reading
