(NaturalHealth365) A major part of the liver’s job is to help your body digest all the food that you consume. This includes the coffee you drink, the sodas you may occasionally sneak in, and any pharmaceutical drugs you take, in addition to your usual diet. But, if you’re struggling with chronic fatigue, you’ll want to understand much more about the importance of the liver. →
(NaturalHealth365) Could making different choices at the grocery store reduce your exposure to harmful pesticides? The answer is yes, according to breaking research.

(Humans Are Free) The weed killer glyphosate — infamously known as Roundup — can be found everywhere: lawns, gardens, parks, soil, rivers and even in the rain (1). But household use of this herbicide is dwarfed by its use in agriculture. And herein lies the problem.
Over the past several years, scientists have discovered that exposure to glyphosate-containing weed killers is a huge threat to public health. And it’s a risk that keeps growing.
The rise of GMO crops — including corn, soy, and canola — has led to a skyrocketing use of glyphosate with almost 300 million pounds applied each year (2). Genetically engineered crops (GMOs) were designed to withstand this toxic herbicide, so it can be sprayed and kill the weeds but not the crop. →

Two groundbreaking trials that have found Monsanto’s weedkiller Roundup responsible for causing cancer have brought to light some disturbing news about how the company has manipulated media coverage of the product. Internal documents obtained by Freedom of Information Act requests revealed that Monsanto paid Google to push stories critical of the company far down on the search results list, while promoting stories that supported the company. →
(Collective-Evolution) Monsanto is a biotech corporation that was founded in the early 1900s. They produce genetically modified foods (GMOs) and many chemicals that are sprayed onto our food, including several pesticides. A recent study published in the journal Environmental Research titled, “Organic diet intervention significantly reduces urinary pesticide levels in U.S. children and adults” outlined the issue with these chemicals, many of which were actually originally designed by Monsanto as warfare weapons to be used as nerve agents. →

(Collective-Evolution) Scientists and health professionals have been raising concerns about pesticides for decades. The idea that these products were ever approved as safe by our federal health regulatory agencies is truly mind blowing, given the fact that their toxicity and danger seem to be unquestionable. In 2012, the Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) stated that “Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” → Read more
