Deep Colors Boost Fruits' Preventive Superpowers

Mary Nguyen

The Columbus Dispatch, Ohio

Do not underestimate the blueberry. What it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in health benefits. -- It tastes pretty good, too. -- Long heralded by nutritionists, the blueberry has been reported to benefit brain health and to help inhibit Type 2 diabetes. -- And a study published recently in the American Heart Association journal Circulation suggests that eating three servings of berries a day can reduce the risk of heart attacks in some women.

What makes this superfood so super? Bioactive elements called flavonoids. In berries, the flavonoids are anthocyanins, the stuff that gives them their uniquely rich colors.

Whole Health in Holistic Veganism - Letting the Fat Out of the Bag

by Gabriel Cousens

(NaturalNews) Currently there is serious mis-information out there about health, fat, and cholesterol. It's not new. All my holistic physician friends, and many other cardiologists who are not necessarily holistic, know it. It is a belief still largely held by many people mainstream meat eaters and uninformed vegans, to both their detriment and deception.

So here's letting "the fat out of the bag": Saturated fats have nothing to do with heart disease. I will say it again. Saturated fat has nothing to do with heart disease. And every holistic physician knows that.

MSG and Aspartame are the Two Leading Causes of Central Nervous System Damage in the United States

by S. D. Wells

(NaturalNews) Excitotoxins, as they are appropriately named, are supposed to enhance flavor and excite your taste buds, but this "class" of chemicals overstimulate neuron receptors, which are what allow brain cells to communicate with each other. This causes a firing of impulses at such a rapid rate that they become completely exhausted, and several hours later, these depleted neurons die. This is true cell death, and the parts of the brain that are specifically targeted by excitotoxins are the hypothalamus and temporal lobes, which not only control behavior, emotions, and sleep cycles, but you guessed it, immunity.

Fructose Triggers Brain Changes That lead to Overeating

by Ethan A. Huff

(NaturalNews) New research funded in part by the U.S. government has finally proven that all those corn industry-funded commercials that claim high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is the same thing as table sugar, and that your body cannot tell the difference between the two, are patently false. According to the data, fructose is metabolized differently by the body than glucose, and does not lead to the same "full" feelings as other types of sugar, which is why many people tend to over-consume it and gain weight.

Vaccine-Induced Strokes on the Rise Among Young People

Women with Multiple Sclerosis Experience High Rates of Cardiovascular Disease

by Katie BrindAmour

(NaturalNews) -- As if Multiple Sclerosis (MS) weren't bad enough, the condition and its complications seem to affect women disproportionately. Women are twice as likely as men to suffer from MS, and recent research indicates that women with MS are also more likely to experience cardiovascular disease than men with the same condition. On the whole, individuals with MS are more likely than the general population to experience heart attacks, strokes, and heart failure. The difference in risk is particularly striking for women, prompting scientists to recommend more thorough preventive measures and early cardiovascular risk testing for women with MS.

High Omega-3 Levels Protect Against Sudden Cardiac Death Among Dialysis Patients

In an article that appeared online in the journal Kidney International, researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine in collaboration with scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital report an association between higher levels of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in early kidney dialysis patients and a reduced risk of sudden cardiac death, the leading cause of mortality in this group.

Allon N. Friedman, MD and his colleagues compared omega-3 blood levels of 100 patients who underwent sudden cardiac death within the first year of dialysis to levels measured among 300 survivors. A declining risk of death was observed in association with increasing levels of omega-3 fatty acids, with those whose levels were among the top 25 percent of subjects having an 80 percent lower risk than those whose levels were lowest.

Low-Sugar Diet Helps Prevent Diabetes

(NaturalNews) One of the most common myths associated with diabetes is that too much intake of sugary foods triggers it. It should be noted; however, that while a low-sugar diet can help reduce the chances of dealing with diabetes, the excessive consumption of sugar is not the sole cause of it. There are other factors that tend to affect health and trigger the condition. But everyone is still advised to stick to a diet with less sugar since it can help prevent obesity, which is one of the most common triggers of the disease.

Oregano Keeps Chickens Healthy and Disease-Free Naturally

by PF Louis

(NaturalNews) More conventional farmers, both small and large, are beginning to ease off antibiotic use on their animals. Pharmaceutical antibiotics had become popular as CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) came into existence.

Antibiotics began being used to keep poultry and livestock free from infectious disease while being kept in crowed disease brewing conditions, fed grains that are unnatural to their diets, and kept indoors. Natural News and this author hold this practice in contempt.

But the focus of this article is to announce that a few farmers are using oregano oil to replace antibiotics to keep their poultry and livestock disease free.

Researcher Examines a Link between Auditory Deficit And Dementia

KATHERINE BOUTON

International Herald Tribune

Frank Lin, an otolaryngologist at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, has been exploring the strong association he has found between hearing loss and dementia.

At a party the other night, a fund-raiser for a literary magazine, I found myself in conversation with a well-known author whose work I greatly admire. I use the term "conversation" loosely. I couldn't hear a word he said. But worse, the effort I was making to hear was using up so much brain power that I completely forgot the titles of his books.

A senior moment? Maybe. (I'm 65.) But for me, it's complicated by the fact that I have severe hearing loss, only somewhat eased by a hearing aid and cochlear implant.

New research published in the journal BMJ has added further support for this warning after finding that Celexa and other antidepressants, including Lexapro and Elavil, may extend the electrical activity in your heart (known as a QT interval), potentially leading to abnormal heart rhythms, which in turn can lead to dizziness, fainting or even sudden death.

Insufficient Vitamin D Levels Linked to Increased Atherosclerosis in Diabetics

The Journal of Biological Chemistry published an article by researchers at Washington University in St Louis that describes a protective effect for higher serum vitamin D levels against the development of atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes.

"About 26 million Americans now have type 2 diabetes," noted Carlos Bernal-Mizrachi, MD, the study's lead researcher. "And as obesity rates rise, we expect even more people will develop diabetes. Those patients are more likely to experience heart problems due to an increase in vascular inflammation, so we have been investigating why this occurs."
