Common prescription drug for arthritis linked to heart valve problem — NaturalHealth365 – March 13, 2019

(NaturalHealth365) Three years ago, people using the arthritis drug, Celebrex breathed a huge sigh of relief.  But, as you’ll soon see, that was a big mistake.

A 2016 study claimed that this arthritis medicine wasn’t any riskier for your heart than other common NSAIDs like naproxen and ibuprofen. So, many people continued to use drugs containing celecoxib, an ingredient found in Celebrex.

Unfortunately, that 2016 study missed something big.  According to a brand new study, there’s a huge risk to using these drugs — heart valve problems.

New reports link zinc deficiency to high blood pressure — Natural Health 365 – March 5, 2019

byJoy Jensen, staff writer 

(NaturalHealth365) If your zinc levels are lower than normal, new reports show you’re at risk for high blood pressure. A recent study published in the American Journal of Physiology – Renal Physiology found that too little zinc could cause your kidneys to reabsorb salt, causing high blood pressure.

And, here’s an important point: low levels of zinc are common across many chronic diseases.  And, it’s already been known to make high blood pressure reading worse.  However, it wasn’t until this study that we knew that zinc deficiency on its own can have a a (negative) impact on your blood pressure reading.

New Study Shows What Vegan Diets Do For Heart Health, Endurance Athletes & Sport Performance — Collective Evolution – February 12, 2019

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Another study has emerged showing that plant-based diets not only give endurance athletes an edge when it comes to heart health, performance, and recovery, but it also satisfies their nutritional needs.
  • Reflect On:With so many examples and so much science showing how a vegan diet is nothing but beneficial for our own biology as well as the planet, why do some choose to not acknowledge it or claim that this information is false?

It’s concerning how so much focus is put on transitioning from fossil fuels to clean energy technology, and absolutely no attention is paid to animal agriculture. Everybody on the planet could drive electric cars and all industries could use clean energy technology and that still would not even compare to the environmental impact of everyone adopting a plant-based diet. Due to the fact that approximately 80 percent of the Amazon rainforest is destroyed for animal agriculture, reducing our meat and dairy production would provide us with an opportunity to restore Earth’s lungs. CO2 has been much higher in the past, but deforestation was never been this bad. How come CO2 and fossil fuels are constantly being addressed, yet animal agriculture and deforestation are virtually ignored? Read more
