Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in nearly every cell of your body, vital for optimal functioning. For instance, your body uses cholesterol in the construction of cell membranes and in regulating protein pathways required for cell signaling. Without sufficient amounts of cholesterol in your body you may experience a negative impact on your brain health, hormone levels and heart disease risk.

The surprising link between stress, cancer cell growth and vitamin C — NaturalHealth365 – May 28, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) We often hear that ‘cancer kills’ – but so does stress!  While most of us know that cancer is one of the leading killers in the United States, few of us fully realize that chronic stress is strongly linked to millions of deaths, as well.

The prevailing theory is that (chronic – unwanted) stress triggers chronic inflammation in the body.  This can damage cells and tissues and ultimately lead to widespread damaging effects and health consequences, including cancer.  Now, new research points to some promising data.

It turns out that something as affordable and safe as vitamin C could suppress cancer growth.

Glyphosate worse than we could imagine. “It’s everywhere” — NaturalNews.com – April 30, 2019

(Natural News) As new studies continue to point to a direct link between the widely-used glyphosate herbicide and various forms of cancer, the agribusiness lobby fights ferociously to ignore or discredit evidence of human and other damage. A second US court jury case just ruled that Monsanto, now a part of the German Bayer AG, must pay $ 81 million in damages to plaintiff Edwin Hardeman who contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer. The ruling and a line-up of another 11,000 pending cases in US courts going after the effects of glyphosate, have hit Bayer AG hard with the company announcing several thousand layoffs as its stock price plunges.

(NaturalHealth365) Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) – a term that includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease – is characterized by chronic inflammation of the digestive tract.

With symptoms of abdominal pain, cramping and altered bowel function, IBD is a potentially debilitating condition that can raise the risk of colon cancer and blood clots.  Unfortunately, the prevalence of IBD is currently increasing nationwide. The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation reports that 1.6 million people in the US are now affected by inflammatory bowel disease – with 70,000 new cases diagnosed every year.

New meta-analysis finds that proper vitamin D levels greatly improve the health of diabetics and heart patients — NaturalHealth365 – April 19, 2019
