It’s been at least a decade since the last time barrels of carcinogenic waste was found at the bottom of the ocean. Back in 2011, at least 60 barrels of toxic pesticide DDT were dumped off the Los Angeles coast. But during the end of April 2021, marine scientists have found more than 27,000 barrels of DDT, caught by new technology that discovered just how huge the size of the dumping ground actually is compared to what they originally thought.
(NaturalHealth365) No doubt, spending time in the sun is beneficial for human health: it’s the best way to ensure your body gets enough vitamin D, and it also promotes a normal sleep-wake cycle. By the way, clinical evidence even shows that UV radiation can destroy the novel coronavirus (although sunlight shouldn’t replace other measures to protect against infectious diseases, like a healthy diet, good sleep habits and other immune-supportive lifestyle habits. But, in terms of sun exposure, you’ll certainly want to consider a good sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage.
(NaturalHealth365) Millions of Americans live with autoimmune disorders, and despite plenty of money invested in research, scientists have largely ignored the underlying problems causing them. Unfortunately, it appears that autoimmunity – which occurs when your immune system begins attacking your body instead of protecting it from disease – is on the rise within the United States.
(NaturalHealth365) Let’s face the harsh reality. While most people recognize that we live in a toxic world, only a few grasp the magnitude of the problem. Environmental toxins cause significant harm to people of all ages; however, children are particularly vulnerable. In fact, there is plenty of evidence revealing children’s unique patterns of exposure to human-made and natural chemicals.
We all experience anxiety. It’s your body’s natural (and normal) response to a threat. A signal that something in your life needs attention.
Anxiety can be related to your daily life experiences, but it can also be triggered by the foods you eat, environmental toxins, many types of medications and/or chronic infections like Lyme disease or candida.
(NaturalHealth365) It’s time to talk about one thing many health-conscious consumers have wondered throughout the coronavirus pandemic: why aren’t government officials and the media talking about the impact of common chemicals (environmental toxins) on COVID-19?
We won’t speculate why officials aren’t championing healthier lifestyles as much as they’re enforcing coronavirus regulations under threat of fines, or worse! But needless to say, the idea that a face mask, SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, or flu shot is all we need to stay healthy this winter is deeply misguided – especially in light of decades of evidence showing how environmental pollutants can increase a person’s risk of chronic disease, which is a known risk factor for a severe COVID-19 infection.
(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)Sometimes what you can’t see, can hurt you. Beyond the vision of the naked eye, there’s a battle going on all around you, every day. Viruses, environmental toxins, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, harmful fungi, allergens and other fierce combatants are waging war with your body. Hence, the need for medicinal mushrooms to protect your health, as you’ll soon see.
As you know, a healthy immune system is one of your best lines of defense against the health challenges all around you. But, most people hear little about how medicinal mushrooms can greatly improve immune function. Today, you’ll discover how this powerful “super food” offers antiviral and anticancer benefits. →
(NaturalHealth365)By the end of 2020, there will be 1.8 million new cancer cases expected and over 600,000 cancer deaths, in the United States alone. Yet, even conventionally-trained scientists (and doctors) admit that lifestyle changes can help us to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Simply put, there is a lot we can do to avoid cancer! →
(NaturalHealth365)According to the National Health Council, a troubling 50 percent of American adults suffer greatly with their health. Thankfully, recent research has shown that a pair of natural substances – glutathione and vitamin C – can help to increase the body’s natural antioxidant defense system. This, in turn, helps to reduce the risk of excess oxidative stress – which leads to a diminished quality of life.
Researchers have found that these natural compounds work in concert, with each helping to replenish and recycle the other. Let’s take a closer look at the health benefits that are obtained by taking these two natural substances together. →
