(NaturalHealth365) Every year, at least 2.8 million Americans develop an antibiotic-resistant infection – and more than 35,000 of them lose their lives. Scientists warn that certain bacteria have become resistant to existing antimicrobial treatments, causing common infections to become difficult – or even impossible – to treat. This frightening situation has led the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to label antibiotic resistance as one of the biggest public health challenges of our time – and has triggered a scramble among researchers to develop alternative antimicrobial strategies.
Our skin – the largest organ in the body – is the first line of defense against injury, pathogens, toxins, air pollution, and overexposure to cold, heat and sun. As such, it’s first in line to “take a hit” from these everyday threats – and to respond to these stressors with wrinkles, age spots, dryness, redness or pimples.
(Natural News) When modern medicine can’t solve a health issue, nature often comes to the rescue. Although many people believe that the latest cutting-edge medical developments surely must outperform anything that can be found in nature given the research and money that goes into development, studies like a recent one on cystic fibrosis patients prove that nature still has a valuable place in treating illnesses. →

(Natural News) For more than a decade, Natural News has been warning the public about the dangers of the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides, and the genetic modification of plants to withstand the onslaught of such chemicals. In return, Natural News – like most members of the independent media – has been vilified, mocked and even censored by the mainstream media. Worse, even generally respected journalists have stubbornly insisted, despite mounting evidence that these chemicals have a profoundly negative effect on human and environmental health, that so-called “conventional” farming methods are totally safe.
Sadly, Big Agri has continued to sell its deadly poisons, and things have now become so bad that even some in the mainstream media have started reporting on the devastating impact these chemicals continue to have on insect populations. Read more
Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” Never is this more true than providing what your body needs to fight infection. Over the last several decades, over-use of antibiotics has reached an all-time high. The result has been drug-resistant bacteria and “superbugs” that evolve faster than scientists can……Read more
