(NaturalHealth365) Bone loss is widely considered to be just another part of the aging process. In fact, many conventionally-trained physicians believe that it is perfectly “understandable” for a person to experience a higher risk of osteoporosis later in life.
In addition, Western medicine is quite accepting of the fractures that result from these conditions. In fact, researchers estimate that 50% of U.S. women and 20% of men will have an osteoporotic fracture after 49 years of age.
(Natural News) It’s something straight out of a science fiction movie, and a bad one at that, but it’s absolutely true: Big Tech oligarchs in the U.S. and abroad are pouring billions into research that will enable them to live and govern eternally by literally discovering the once-fictional “fountain of youth,” even if they have to harvest the blood of the young to achieve it.
Their finding, detailed in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, offers a promising alternative strategy for treating hypertension, a condition in which blood pressure levels stay high over a long period.
(NaturalHealth365) Threats to health – including exposure to environmental toxins, heavy metals, EMF radiation, bacteria and viruses – seem to be everywhere these days, highlighting the need for a strong, efficient immune system. And, with 80 percent of the immune system located in the gut, it’s easy to see that immune health and gut health are closely connected.
(NaturalHealth365) Vision loss becomes a serious concern as you grow older, and macular degeneration – the top cause of poor eyesight in aging adults – primarily occurs due to aging. In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that over three million Americans over the age of 40 deal with age-related vision loss, and millions more are at risk for developing this disease. →
(NaturalHealth365)Over five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. While most people think of Alzheimer’s as a disease that merely results in cognitive decline, the disease is the 6th leading cause of death within the U.S. and kills more than prostate cancer and breast cancer combined each year.
As heart disease deaths begin to decrease, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have been increasing. A recent study found a link between low intake of flavonoids and dementia when compared to individuals who had a higher intake of flavonoid-rich foods. This discovery may be significant in preventing and treating this health crisis in the future. →
(Natural News) Published in the journal Nutrition Research, this study evaluated the effect of probiotic supplementation on the cellular innate activity of healthy elderly participants. All experiments were conducted by researchers from Finland and the US. →
In a study published in Current Developments in Nutrition and funded by the California Strawberry Commission, researchers from Rush University found that elderly people who consumed high amounts of strawberries were less likely to develop Alzheimer’s dementia. →
(Natural News) The connection between diet and neurodegenerative diseases has long been the subject of scientific investigations. Today, although much remains to be understood, researchers and clinicians acknowledge the importance of diet in preventing, delaying, or improving the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s disease is the most prevalent cause of dementia around the world. This debilitating disease is still without a cure. Hence, scientists continue to search for viable treatments that can stop and reverse its progression. →
(NaturalHealth365) Greater than 3,000: that’s how many new cases of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are diagnosed every year in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ALL is responsible for 20% of all cancers in people younger than 20 years old. And, sadly, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute finds that up to 1 in 5 kids who undergo chemotherapy for ALL will relapse – even if they initially receive a complete remission of the cancer. →
