Bend Over: The Unpopular Opinion on Vaccines

46 Comments 03 June 2011

Before you jump to any conclusions, I am not anti-vaccine. My family has had vaccinations, but I wouldn't call myself pro-vaccine either... Vaccinating children every year is a billion dollar annual business for the pharmaceutical companies. But do they really help or do they do more harm than good?

The Oreck Air Purifier

4 Comments 20 April 2011

According to the EPA, the air in your house may be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside, and we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors! Indoor air pollution is caused by mold, viruses, dust mites, bacteria, pet dander, and the outgassing of chemicals used in the production of furniture, paint, carpet, cleaning supplies, candles, air fresheners...Yep, pretty much everything in your house. This is why an Oreck Air Purifier has been cleaning the air in our house since 2004. We have an Oreck XL like the one pictured above. It works great, it's easy to clean, and the filter parts are easy to find and replace. Ours has three settings: low, high, and silent mode. Silent mode is good during the day and we use the low setting for white noise in our bedroom at night. Especially great for folks with allergies and asthma. Price Oreck Air Purifiers Here

Is ElectroPollution making you sick?

27 Comments 18 January 2011

I never gave much thought to the health effects of living in a modernized society until I was diagnosed with cancer. That's when I began to take a second look at everything. Cancer has increased dramatically in our modern industrial age. So every aspect of our modern age became suspect, including electricity. When I started researching the effects that our modern electrically-powered world can have on our health, I discovered electropollution.

Mercury: Is This Toxic Heavy Metal In Your Mouth?

17 Comments 20 November 2010

Mercury is the only naturally liquid metal on the planet, and you've got to admit liquid metal is pretty awesome. It's also classified as a "heavy metal". Also awesome. But despite all its awesomeness, Mercury is still a neurotoxin that has been linked to immune system suppression and a host of physical problems including brain damage, Autism, Alzheimers, ALS, MS, Cancer, and other chronic diseases. What may surprise you the most is how much mercury you're exposed to without even knowing it.

Is Farm-Raised Fish Healthy?

14 Comments 02 October 2010

Perhaps you've heard the dietary health advice "Eat less red meat and more fish". In a perfect world this is good advice, but in the real world there is a very important factor that is often ignored. You should take the same approach to the food you eat as you do to the advice you're given...Consider the source. Farm-raised fish is promoted like it's a good thing. But when you take a closer look, farm-raised fish makes about as much sense as ocean-caught beef.

Sea Salt vs.Table Salt. Does It Really Matter?

9 Comments 12 September 2010

You've probably heard that a diet high in sodium is unhealthy because it is a risk factor for Cardiovascular and Kidney Disease. Processed foods have very high levels of salt, and a diet high in salt actually leads to salt dependence by your body. This is why you crave salty foods; just like a smoker craves the nicotine in a cigarette.

24 Comments 08 September 2010

Unless you've been living in a cave or perhaps Cuba, you've probably heard that buying organic produce is better. The most important reason to buy organic is to avoid exposure to the toxic chemical pesticides and fertilizers used to grow commercial produce these days. The pesticides they put on our food have been linked to some serious health problems like Cancer, Birth Defects, Parkinson's, Asthma, Autism, ADHD, and more. Here's the most recent report of the cleanest and dirtiest produce based on FDA and USDA data.

Kicking the Sacred Cow: Does Milk Really Do Your Body Good?

23 Comments 07 September 2010

In case you hadn't noticed, the dairy industry is spending millions of dollars every year to convince you that you need to drink milk, like superman here. Since 1993 they've paid hundreds of celebrities to pose with a milk mustache for the "Got Milk?" ads. But in recent years conventional wisdom about milk has been turned udders up, and a different kind of milk is making a big comeback.

Sleep With Me: How Much Do You Really Need?

10 Comments 17 August 2010

We've all heard that most people need 6-8 hours of sleep per night, but you may need much more, like 9-10.  Not getting enough sleep night after night leads to a "sleep deficit" that keeps growing.  And with that sleep deficit comes a gradual degradation of your health. A major key to health is figuring out how much sleep you need, then getting it.

The Fast Lane to Health: How to Detox

11 Comments 12 August 2010

If you're eating the standard modern diet full of processed food and artificial ingredients; you're putting toxins in your body faster than it can eliminate them. These unnatural chemical compounds are accumulating in all the tissues of your body, and have been for most of your life. Over time these toxins accumulate inside you until there is a tipping point at which your body is so overloaded that essential systems and functions begin to break down. This is why periodic deliberate detoxing is critical.
