a diet fit for a monkey

What is the best diet to follow and foods to eat to regain or maintain optimum health? The equivalent of the Brazilian rain forest has probably been leveled to print the books attempting to answer just that question. But confusion still abounds. Should you go Paleo or vegan when you are ill? And what are the best foods to prevent or heal cancer? To find out, we need to take a tip from bears—and monkeys and rats and most of the animal kingdom. After witnessing sick bears eating the roots of Ligusticum plants and getting better afterward, North American Native Americans gave the plants a name that means‘bear medicine.’ Most conventional scientists have disparaged anecdotes such as these, putting them down to myth—until recently. Animal behaviorists have discovered that animals do indeed appear to…

have your say

Lack of jab safety protocols I’m grateful you are giving people information about Covid-19 that is not being raised in the mainstream media. “Proper safety protocols have been willingly abandoned in order to get as many jabs in as many arms as possible” One issue I want to raise is the lack of any basic safety protocols applied when administering the Covid-19 injections in the UK. (I do not refer to them as vaccines because they clearly do not meet the requirements of a traditional vaccine.) Although I have not had the injection myself, I am aware that the giving of this medical intervention is not being subject to the usual rigorous checking done in the NHS. My husband received his jab at a large “vaccine center.” He was not asked any medical history questions…

an avocado a day reduces belly fat

An avocado a day can help women lose the hard-to-budge belly fat and make them look slimmer. The fat—known as visceral abdominal fat—surrounds the body’s organs and increases the risk for diabetes. The fat-moving qualities of the avocado surprised a research team who were looking into the fruit’s impact on the way people store fat. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign recruited 105 obese or overweight men and women and put them on a diet of just one meal a day for 12 weeks. Half the group was given an avocado as part of their daily meal plan, while the other half was given the same number of calories with otherwise similar ingredients, but no avocado. Although the men didn’t benefit from eating avocados, the women’s visceral fat was reduced, and…

you don’t put on weight by eating too much

The theory that people become overweight and obese because they eat too much and don’t ‘burn’ it off has finally been put to rest by 17 of the world’s leading scientists. Instead, obesity is caused by eating processed junk foods that are sweetened by ingredients such as high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). The quality of the food—and not the quantity—determines weight gain. The scientists say there is overwhelming evidence to dispute the idea that people put on weight when they consume more energy than they expend. “During a growth spurt, adolescents may increase food intake by 1,000 calories a day, but does their overeating cause the growth spurt or does the growth spurt cause the adolescent to get hungry and overeat?” said Dr David Ludwig, a professor at Harvard Medical School and the…

why christian eriksen collapsed in the euro soccer game

The world was shocked by images of Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during the recent European Championships. How could a fit 29-year-old suddenly suffer a heart malfunction? Sudden cardiac episodes aren’t so rare: they account for 15 percent of all deaths in the West, and they can happen out of the blue to seemingly healthy people who have no history of heart problems. Two things need to happen to spark a cardiac episode, researchers from the University of Copenhagen have discovered. Cardiac sodium channels, proteins in the membrane of heart cells that help keep the heart beating, suddenly stop functioning correctly, and this only happens in people with certain mutations in the gene for these channels. But the mutation on its own may not cause the heart to stop.…
