Three Compelling Reasons Not To Wear Synthetic Perfumes

(NaturalNews) Our cultural fascination with fragrance has spanned back thousands of years. Our ancestors did not spray a multitude of new-era chemicals on their body to achieve an appealing scent though. Instead, they often used plant materials to achieve desirable scents. Modern times have spawned literally thousands of chemicals for use in fragrance.

When you apply anything labeled with a "fragrance" ingredient today, you can be assured you are subjecting yourself to anywhere from tens to hundreds of various chemicals. This includes lotions, which you may apply to your entire body, facial skin care products and other beauty and self care items that you may use every single day, multiplying your exposure exponentially. None of these chemicals need to be directly disclosed in labeling since they are considered proprietary in nature.

Today, the perfume industry is worth an estimated 5.1 billion dollars as consumers continue to buy fragrances and perfumed products. Why should you not partake in using these synthetic fragrance products?

Can Echinacea Prevent Colds?

By Nick Collins, Science Correspondent

Tests on 750 patients found that taking three daily doses of the common remedy for four months reduced the number of colds and duration of the illness by an average of 26 per cent.

The treatment also cut the number of recurrent colds suffered by people with weak immune systems or a history of catching several bouts each year by 60 per cent.

Several previous studies, including an overview of evidence by the highly respected Cochrane Library, had suggested that Echinacea could soothe symptoms and cut colds short, but there was only limited evidence it could prevent the illness from ever taking hold.

Could Chronic Niacin Deficiency Be a Root Cause of Increase in Violent Crimes?

By Dr. Mercola

As mass killings occur around the nation by obviously disturbed perpetrators at increasing frequency, there's plenty of blame to go around. The medical system gets blamed for not identifying these killers in time; the gun lobby gets blamed for fighting stricter gun regulations; and producers of violent video games along with incessant and glorified violence on TV certainly does nothing to combat despondency and desensitization.

But what if the solution could be found in one's diet, or in more extreme cases, in an inexpensive supplement bottle?

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Pain & Central Nervous System Week

Can you bite into an apple? If so, you are more likely to maintain mental abilities, according to new research from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.

The population is ageing, and the older we become the more likely it is that we risk deterioration of our cognitive functions, such as memory, decision-making and problem solving. Research indicates several possible contributors to these changes, with several studies demonstrating an association between not having teeth and loss of cognitive function and a higher risk of dementia.

30 Minutes Exercise Equally Effective as 60 Minutes for Weight Loss

When it comes to losing weight spending hours exercising may not be the most effective option. Mads Rosenkilde and colleagues at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) conducted a randomized controlled study on 60 sedentary and moderately overweight young men to examine the effects of increasing doses of aerobic exercise on weight loss. Half of the men were assigned to exercise for an hour a day, while the second half only had to exercise for 30 minutes. Results showed that, on average, the men who exercised 30 minutes a day lost 3.6 kg in 3 months, while those who exercised for a whole hour only lost 2.7 kg. The reduction in body mass was about 4 kg for both groups.

Vitamin D Deficiency Raises Risk of Heart Disease

Most often associated with poor bone health, vitamin D deficiency may also raise a person’s risk of ischemic heart disease – which may manifest as heart attack, coronary arteriosclerosis, or angina. Other studies suggest that vitamin D deficiency may increase blood pressure and consequently, the risk of heart attack. Peter Brondum-Jacobsen, from the University of Copenhagen (Denmark), and colleagues utilized data collected from 10,000 Danes enrolled in the Copenhagen City Heart Study, which measured levels of vitamin D in blood, comparing the 5% lowest levels of vitamin D (less than 15 nanomol per liter serum) with the 50% highest levels (more than 50 nanomol per liter serum)., and then followed nationwide Danish registries for hospital admissions.

Maintaining Muscle Mass While Dieting

Deutsche Presse-Agentur

During a diet the process of metabolism can more or less be put to sleep. When the body receives less energy in the form of nutrition then it saves on temperature, motion and unnecessary metabolic processes.

The body also breaks down tissues - both fat and the biggest consumer of energy, muscle mass. To prevent this muscle loss lifting weights and taking plenty of protein are recommended.

Increased Lycopene Levels Associated With Lower Risk Of Stroke

A recent issue of the journal Neurology® published the finding of Finnish researchers of a protective effect for the carotenoid lycopene, which occurs in high amounts in tomatoes and other plant foods, against the risk of stroke in middle-aged men.

The study included 1,031 men aged 46 to 65 years participating in the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor cohort. Blood tests conducted upon enrollment between 1991 and 1993 evaluated serum carotenoids, vitamins A and E, and other factors. The subjects were followed through 1999, during which 50 men experienced ischemic stroke (which accounts for 85 percent of all strokes) and 17 men had other types of stroke.

Too Little Sleep Plays Havoc With Fat Cells

Nanci Hellmich, USA TODAY

Here's another reason to get a good night's sleep: Too little shut-eye plays havoc with your fat cells, which could lead to weight gain and type 2 diabetes, researchers reported Monday.

Scientists have known for years that sleep deprivation makes you tired and cranky and less able to think clearly. It also can make you fat because it increases levels of a hunger hormone and decreases levels of a fullness hormone, which could lead to overeating and weight gain.

The latest study indicates that not getting enough sleep reduces your fat cells' ability to respond properly to the hormone insulin, which is crucial for regulating energy storage and use. Over time the disruption could lead to weight gain, type 2 diabetes and other health problems, the researchers say.

High-Dose Vitamin C Reduces Inflammation in Cancer Patients Study Shows

NewsRx.com

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Weekly

Inflammatory responses play roles at different stages of tumor development, including initiation, promotion, malignant conversion, invasion, and metastasis. The 'inflammation- cancer' connection is not restricted to increased risk for a subset of tumors. An inflammatory component is present in the microenvironment of most neoplastic tissues.

High inflammatory levels appear to indicate increased cancer risk and poorer prognosis. Inflammation also decreases quality of life, impairs immune functions, plays a central role in cancer cachexia, and lowers toleration of some anti-cancer therapies.

"Betcha can't eat just one!" For obese people trying to lose weight, the Lays potato chip advertising slogan hits a bit too close to home as it describes the daily battle to resist high calorie foods.

But new research by Terry Davidson, director of American University's Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, indicates that diets that lead to obesity-diets high in saturated fat and refined sugar-may cause changes to the brains of obese people that in turn may fuel overconsumption of those same foods and make weight loss more challenging.

A new study finds significant associations between antibodies for multiple oral bacteria and the risk of pancreatic cancer, adding support for the emerging idea that the ostensibly distant medical conditions are related.

The study of blood samples from more than 800 European adults, published online Sept. 18 in the journal Gut, found that high antibody levels for one of the more infectious periodontal bacterium strains of Porphyromonas gingivalis were associated with a two-fold risk for pancreatic cancer. Meanwhile, study subjects with high levels of antibodies for some kinds of harmless "commensal" oral bacteria were associated with a 45-percent lower risk of pancreatic cancer.
