What's the Best Breakfast for a Toned, Healthy Body?

Joseph Mercola discusses the latest research on what's the best breakfast for a toned, health body.
You probably realize the importance of your food choices, but does it matter when you eat? Yes, it does. To shed some light on this issue, I asked fitness expert Ori Hofmekler to share his insights.
What to Eat for Breakfast

You need to be very particular with your meal size and food choices. Contrary to popular opinion, the morning is not the ideal time to eat large meals because during this time your body is in elimination (detox) mode.

When your metabolic system is operating well, you’ll find that you have to go to the bathroom each morning, like clockwork. This is important in order to effectively eliminate toxins and prevent disease. Unfortunately, constipation is an extremely common problem, and part of the reason for this is that your body is not “set” to eliminate properly due to poor diet and improper meal timing.

So, if you’re constipated, or do not automatically eliminate every morning, it’s a giant clue you need to re-examine what and when you eat.

Ori recommends eating only detoxifying foods until noontime, such as: Read more

Is Prostate Cancer Screening a Scam?

Mike Adams discusses the 20-year study that concludes it has no benefit, except to the cancer industry.
Don't let anyone from the cancer industry lie to you about PSA screening: The test is completely bogus and offers zero improvement in your lifespan. That's the conclusion from a 20-year study that followed over 9,000 men. After 20 years of follow-up, guess what the results were? No significant difference in the rate of death between those screened for prostate cancer versus those who weren't.

In other words, prostate cancer screening is really a bogus test used to exploit men's fear and recruit them into unnecessary and potentially harmful cancer treatments. That's why the cancer industry uses the PSA test, of course: It's a powerful recruiting tool! It scares men into agreeing to expensive, high-profit treatments which are then billed to their insurance companies, Medicaid or Medicare. (Gee, no wonder our health care system is bankrupting the nation...) Read more

Soy Linked to Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

Soy and soy products have been heavily promoted as being good for you. While soy may be good for the farmers who grow it, and the manufacturers who make soy products from it, eating it has been linked to type-1 diabetes and erectile dysfunction.
Over the past few years, soy has been hailed as a miracle health food. Unfortunately, the complete opposite is true. Soy has been linked to a myriad of health conditions such as infantile leukaemia, various forms of cancer, type-1 diabetes, malnutrition, thyroid dysfunction and even erectile dysfunction.

Research has shown that babies who have been fed soy-based formulas were at higher risk for developing type-1 diabetes and thyroid disease later in life. Soy-based formulas also contain up to 1000 times more aluminium than non soy-based formulas.

Soy contains a large amount of anti-nutrients (otherwise known as toxins). Read more

Are Parasites Causing Your Health Problems?

Parasites may be the cause of many mysterious health problems, says Margaret Durst.
After last week’s article on cleansing, I thought it would be a good time to bring up parasites – the thought of which makes most of us queasy. In spite of that, they are an often overlooked cause of certain health problems today.

Parasites are actually very common in nature and more common in humans than we would like to think. Approximately one half of the population of the world carries at least one form of parasite. If you add yeast/fungus (another form of parasite) to that, it includes almost the entire world population.

Having good hygiene does not exempt us from parasites. In fact, our diet of refined foods tends to weaken our immune systems and make us more susceptible to parasitic infection. Remember, parasites are scavengers and poor diets (lots of white sugar and white flour products) give these critters plenty to scavenge.

Parasites are not just found in our intestinal tracts. They can infest any body part such as the lungs, the liver, the muscles and joints, the brain, the blood, the skin and even the eyes. Read more

Vitamin D Could Help Elderly Protect Eyesight

Increasing vitamin D intake could significantly lower the risk of developing the leading cause of blindness, research suggests.
A study of older women found that those who had the highest levels of the vitamin, found in oily fish and eggs as well as dietary supplement pills, were nearly 60 per cent less likely to contract age-related macular degeneration.

Scientists believe it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help prevent the incurable condition by stopping the eyes being damaged.

Their research indicates that taking in more Vitamin D through food or tablets, rather than sunlight, can help protect against developing AMD. Read more

High Fructose Corn Syrup Increases Abdominal Fat and Insulin Resistance

A recent ad campaign has tried to portray high fructose corn syrup as no different than white sugar. However, the claim is false.
A new study from Princeton University found that significant weight gain occurred by merely adding high fructose corn syrup to the diet. Subjects in the test group gained 48% more weight than those who were not given any high fructose corn syrup. Companies with financial ties to the industry have fought back against current scientific research with a very effective, yet deceptive, advertising campaign. Despite industry ad campaigns, research continues to show high fructose corn syrup to be a health damaging substance. Read more

Cinnamon for Diabetes? A Half Teaspoon a Day Is All It Takes

Dr. Joseph Mercola discusses how a half teaspoon a day of cinnamon can help prevent or manage diabetes..
Researchers have been investigating a number of powerful natural agents that can help you stabilize your blood sugar, and once again, cinnamon has proven itself as a viable contender in the fight against diabetes, as the study in Diabetic Medicine reveals.(1)

One of cinnamon's most impressive health benefits is its ability to improve blood glucose control.

For example, just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day has previously been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes. (2)

The more you can make use of natural therapies such as nutrition and exercise, the better your health will be.

However, as helpful as supplements like cinnamon can be, they should not be misconstrued as cures. They are not substitutes for proper diet and lifestyle choices. You cannot properly address your diabetes if you still maintain a sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary choices -- cinnamon supplementation or not! Read more

Erectile Dysfunction: 4 Supplements That Can Help

Many men nowadays experience erectile dysfunction because of their lifestyles or sometimes disease. Erectile dysfunction can be defined as not being able to have or sustain erection. Usually, middle-aged or elderly men experience erectile dysfunction. Though pharmaceuticals to treat this condition are heavily advertised,dietary  supplements are increasing in popularity due to their safety and relatively low cost. Four supplements in particular may have positive effects on erectile dysfunction.

DHEA or dehydroepiandrosterone is said to be effective when it comes to combating erectile dysfunction. Men who are having problems with erection usually have low blood levels of this hormone. An experiment was conducted among 40 men who have low DHEA level. Half of them were given 50mg of DHEA and the other half was given placebos. The results confirmed that this supplement for erectile dysfunction helps. However, there are still debates about the safety of using this supplement, so be careful and be informed before you take in this supplement.

Another supplement for erectile dysfunction is arginine. Arginine is an amino acid that affects the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is necessary for men with erectile dysfunction problem. It widens blood vessels so that blood can flow easily, thus, causing an erection. There is not yet sufficient data about the level or degree of effectiveness of arginine. However, there are many researches that say that arginine will most likely help men with erectile dysfunction.

Combining one kind of L-carnitine, propionyl-L-carnitine, and acetyl-L-carnitine is the another supplement for erectile dysfunction. This supplement helps people who have erectile dysfunction related to low levels of testosterone. The amount of these supplements that one should take in is 2g for each supplement. These two supplements have more positive results when it comes to increasing testosterone level than medications for low levels of testosterone.

The last example of a  supplement that may help erectile dysfunction is pycnogenol, a substance found in Pinus pinaster, a kind of tree. If given 120 mg every day,  pycnogenol might just improve your sexual intercourse with your partner by giving you a stronger erection.

Men should not be afraid or ashamed of having erectile dysfunction because nowadays, they have many options that can help them beat or overcome erectile dysfunction. A breakthrough new method gives any man harder erections simply, naturally and without drugs! To stop erectile dysfunction and start having stiff, powerful erections tonight, Click Here!
