Some of the extremely hard to digest proteins in wheat colloquially known as "gluten" (there are actually over 23,000 identified in the wheat proteome) were found metabolizable through a 94 strains of bacterial species isolated from the human gut (via fecal sampling). This discovery is all the more interesting when you consider that, according to Alessio Fasano, the Medical

Golden Rice refers to GMO rice plants modified to produce beta-carotene (also called provitamin A) in their grain. This latest version of Golden Rice contains three added genes. Two specify enzymes in the β-carotene biosynthesis pathway, and are taken from bacteria and maize. The third specifies a (non-antibiotic) selectable marker protein used in the modification process (Paine et

With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible and which individuals are more at risk? No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty; he wrote the textbooks. The Mosaic of Autoimmunity, Autoantibodies, Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity – the list is 25 titles long and some of them are cornerstones of clinical practice. Hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the

Statistically, atherosclerosis (the progressive clogging of the arteries) is the #1 killer on the planet.  A complex process, involving autoimmunity, infection, dietary incompatibilities, and many known and unknown factors, it is – despite conventional medical opinion – entirely preventable, and in some cases reversible. Here is the peer-reviewed, published research proving the fact: B Vitamins – yes, something as simple as adding a source of B-complex to your regimen can prevent the juggernaut of heart disease from taking your life prematurely. A doubled-blind, randomized study, published in 2005, in

Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation is associated with reduced mania and depression in juvenile bipolar disorder. Clinical studies have reported that oral fish oil supplementation has beneficial effects in rheumatoid arthritis and among some asthmatics. Fish oil improves tubular dysfunction, lipid profiles and oxidative stress in patients with IgA nephropathy. Dietary supplementation with flaxseed oil lowers blood pressure in dyslipidaemic patients. Omega 3 fatty acids improve the cardiovascular risk profile of subjects with metabolic syndrome, including markers of inflammation and auto-immunity. Omega-3 in modest doses reduces cardiac deaths, and in high doses reduces nonfatal cardiovascular events. Dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids reduces the

Turmeric is hands down one of the, if not the, most versatile healing spice in the world with over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits, and an ancient history filled with deep reverence for its seemingly compassionate power to alleviate human suffering. But, most of the focus over the past decade has been centered on only one of its many hundreds of phytocompounds: namely, the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin which gives the spice its richly golden hue.  This curcumin-centric focus has lead to the development of some very good products, such as phospholipid bound curcumin concentrate (e.g. Meriva, BCM-95) which greatly helps

Long touted for their taste, strawberries have drawn little attention for their health benefits While berries get a lot of attention for their health benefits, most of the spotlight goes to berries like blueberries and cranberries. We rarely hear about the health benefits of strawberries (which are not, technically speaking, a berry). But, that’s changing. Strawberries are sneaking into the spotlight. Heart Though not as famous in health circles as its more famous cousins, the research is starting to accumulate for the strawberry. Several studies have now shown strawberries to be good for your heart because they improve cholesterol and triglycerides even in overweight people (Br J Nutr 2012;108(5):900-9) and people with metabolic syndrome (Nutr J 2009;28;8:43; Nutr Res 2010;30(7):462-9). Importantly, strawberries not only lower LDL-cholesterol,

It is crazy to think about the programming the diary industry has successfully implemented into western society. Don’t believe me? Answer this question: What is the best way to get calcium intake to develop strong bones and nails in our body? Answer _____________ If you answered “milk” or “dairy” then you have been programmed. Truth is you don’t need to drink milk at all. I don’t drink it now, nor eat dairy, haven’t done for many years and I do not suffer from a lack of calcium in my diet. However, I did grow up believing it was the only way to get my daily intake of calcium. You are probably thinking now: “How can I get my daily intake then?” Here is some really useful information about calcium intake to consider, thanks to the great Don Tolman. As an aside, I recommend that you take
