It's never too late to become younger...


Ten Studies Showing the Link Between Sugar and Increased Cancer Risk...
How many times have you heard it mentioned that sugar causes cancer, that cancer patients should avoid sugar, or that sugar is the favorite food of cancer cells? The truth is, this goes beyond mere hearsay or traditional knowledge; there is actually a large volume of scientific evidence available which shows the link between sugar and increased cancer risk. Here, ten such studies are summarized.

Drink Brewed Tea To Avoid Tooth Erosion, Study Suggests...
Today, the average size soft drink is 20 ounces and contains 17 teaspoons of sugar. More startling is that some citric acids found in fruit drinks are more erosive than hydrochloric or sulfuric acid—which is also known as battery acid. These refined sugars and acids found in soda and citrus juice promote tooth erosion, which wears away the hard part of the teeth, or the enamel. Once tooth enamel is lost, it's gone forever.

Fructose Sets Table For Weight Gain Without Warning...
Eating too much fructose can induce leptin resistance, a condition that can easily lead to becoming overweight when combined with a high-fat, high-calorie diet, according to a new study with rats. Although previous studies have shown that being leptin resistant can lead to rapid weight gain on a high-fat, high-calorie diet, this is the first study to show that leptin resistance can develop as a result of high fructose consumption. The study also showed for the first time that leptin resistance can develop silently, that is, with little indication that it is happening.

Lack Of Vitamin D Linked To Parkinson's Disease...
A majority of Parkinson's disease patients had insufficient levels of vitamin D in a new study from Emory University School of Medicine. The fraction of Parkinson's patients with vitamin D insufficiency, 55 percent, was significantly more than patients with Alzheimer's disease (41 percent) or healthy elderly people (36 percent).
The finding adds to evidence that low vitamin D is associated with Parkinson's, says first author Marian Evatt, MD, assistant professor of neurology at Emory.

Resveratrol Found to Halt Growth of Pancreatic Cancer Cells...
Recent research suggests that the antioxidant resveratrol, which naturally occurs in grape skins, can weaken pancreatic cancer cells and increase their vulnerability to chemotherapy. "Resveratrol seems to have a therapeutic gain by making tumor cells more sensitive to radiation and making normal tissue less sensitive," said lead researcher Paul Okunieff, chief of radiation oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Nut-Enriched Mediterranean Diet Helps Reverse Metabolic Syndrome...
Patients with metabolic syndrome were 70% more likely than a control group to see resolution of the syndrome after a year of following a Mediterranean diet enriched with nuts, investigators here reported. Patients who stayed on the high-fat, nut-supplemented diet had more than a six-fold greater resolution of the syndrome compared with the control group who were counseled about a low-fat diet, Jordi Salas-Salvado, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of Rovira i Virgili, and colleagues wrote in the Dec. 8/22 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine.

Doctor preaches wonder cure: Vitamin D...
It reduces pain. It reduces illness. There is almost nothing that vitamin D can’t help, and that’s Dr. Greg Plotnikoff’s point. There is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency, especially among the obese, the elderly and dark-skinned people living in the sun-deprived north. In fact, most Minnesotans are likely deficient in winter, unless they take supplements, because they live too far north to get enough vitamin D from the sun. Deficiencies have been linked to 17 kinds of cancer, autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, heart disease, depression and ADHD.
In fact, there is almost nothing that vitamin D can’t help, and that’s Plotnikoff’s point.

Organic Food Has No More Nutritional Value Than Food Grown With Pesticides, Study Shows...
New research in the latest issue of the Society of Chemical Industry’s (SCI) Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture shows there is no evidence to support the argument that organic food is better than food grown with the use of pesticides and chemicals. Many people pay more than a third more for organic food in the belief that it has more nutritional content than food grown with pesticides and chemicals.
But the research by Dr Susanne B├╝gel and colleagues from the Department of Human Nutrition, University of Copenhagen, shows there is no clear evidence to back this up.

Chocolate Really Is Good For You: Studies Prove It...
Chocolate lovers, take heart. Reports from recent studies have given you plenty of reasons to keep on eating chocolate without feeling guilty. In fact, the news from several studies released this spring shows that chocolate is quite effective against the number one killer of Americans, heart disease. Another serious threat to our health, environmental pollution, was significantly reduced by eating chocolate. And the news is even better for females.

Why we yawn: To cool our brains...
If your head is overheated, there's a good chance you'll yawn soon, according to a new study that found the primary purpose of yawning is to control brain temperature.
The finding solves several mysteries about yawning, such as why it's most commonly done just before and after sleeping, why certain diseases lead to excessive yawning, and why breathing through the nose and cooling off the forehead often stop yawning.

Dr. Ignarro recently won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery on NO. Watch in detail what NO is, how it operates, why it is important, and how to increase the production of it. It has been hailed as the discovery of the last century in preventing and even reversing cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and it can age proof your circulatory system.
