Understanding the diet-diabetes connection: What you need to know about preventing and managing your risk — NaturalNews.com – January 1, 2020

(Natural News) Type 2 diabetes is a life-threatening illness, but it’s one that you can largely prevent through lifestyle choices. At the Nutrition 2019 conference held in Baltimore earlier this year, several interesting studies were presented that show just how much what we eat – and the way that we eat it – can impact our risk one way or another.

For example, when you think of foods that can affect your diabetes risk, there’s one that comes to mind almost universally: sugar. While it’s true that consuming a lot of sugar can raise your risk, a new study has shown that diet can be just as important when it comes to lowering your risk, especially if you eat a lot of plant-based foods. →

10 of the Most Powerful All Natural Antibiotics Known To Man — Collective Evolution – December 27, 2019

(Collective-Evolution)  There’s a huge shift right now occurring within the medical industry. More and more people are starting to learn that modern medicine and the pharmaceutical industry have become more concerned with profit than they are with people.

Mark Mattson, Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging, has explained that pharmaceutical companies can’t make money off of healthy people, which is why there is no funding for research. So, it’s not really surprising that drug companies would manufacture pills that have negative side effects, because then they can keep us sick. →

Cancer prevention: 6 Ways nature helps you fight cancer — NaturalNews.com – December 7, 2019

(Natural News) Cancer has been on the rise in recent years, with statistics from the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimating a grand total of more than 1.7 million new cancer cases in the US. Researchers from the ACS found that at least 42 percent of these newly diagnosed cancer cases – about 740,000 – are avoidable. This includes the 19 percent of cancers caused by smoking and the 18 percent caused by a combination of excess body weight, high alcohol intake, poor nutrition and lack of physical activity. Certain lifestyle changes help reduce the risk of cancer, but nature can also bring some surprising cancer-fighting benefits that will help you stay healthy and cancer-free. →

In Brief

The Facts:

A study on patients with AD found that less than a gram of turmeric daily, taken for three months, resulted in ‘remarkable improvements.’

Reflect On:

Turmeric has been used in India for over 5,000 years, which is likely why still today both rural and urban populations have some of the lowest prevalence rates of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in the world.

Quercetin helps to ward of life-threatening conditions, research reveals — NaturalHealth365 – November 6, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) Heart disease and cancer, currently the leading causes of death in the United States, together account for over 1.2 million deaths per year.  But, a lesser known fact is that many researchers believe both diseases are primarily linked to oxidative stress, the main cause of disease.  Fortunately, there are studies which show that quercetin – a plant flavonol – can help control oxidative damage and chronic inflammation, reducing the risk of these life-threatening health conditions. In fact, researchers have found that quercetin helps to protect against a wide range of threats – including environmental toxins, bacterial infections and viruses. →

(Natural News) Each year, a million people are diagnosed with colon cancer globally and half a million die from it. It’s a startling statistic, but there is a silver lining here: It also happens to be one type of cancer where diet can play a huge role in both prevention and treatment. While diet can contribute to anywhere from 20 to 42 percent of all cancers in humans, that range rises to 50 to 90 percent when you look at colon cancer specifically. Perhaps not surprisingly, it’s the unhealthy Western diet that is largely behind this effect. →
