Drink lots of milk to strengthen your bones and boost your health, doctors say.
But a study in The BMJ medical journal Wednesday said Swedes with a high intake of cow’s milk died younger — and women suffered more fractures.
The findings may warrant questions about recommendations for milk consumption, although further research is needed, its authors said, as the association may be purely coincidental.
A Swedish team used data taken from 61,000 women aged 39-74 and monitored for about 20 years, and more than 45,000 men aged 45-79 followed for 11 years.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›

(NaturalNews) Depression is a ubiquitous condition that afflicts millions of Americans, many of whom have been convinced by the psychiatric industry that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and various other antidepressant drugs are their only options for treatment and healing. Truth be told, there are a number of herbal alternatives to these dangerous pharmaceuticals that have been scientifically proven to help remediate depression naturally, and without causing negative side effects.

2012 MARCH 28 Posted by Steve Beckow In my night-time learning last night, I found myself in a course of study presented by the External Affairs Dept. of my government, very cloak-and-dagger, high tech, and risky. I’d taken a break with a colleague and wandered off for a walk in an area of the […]» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›

(NaturalNews) An animal whose very name is often used as an insult may harbor more "human" traits like compassion than previously suspected. A recent study by University of Chicago researchers suggests that rats are capable of behavior which seems based on empathy for others of their kind.
Arguments against animal testing tend to center on those animals most like us, such as the great apes, or on animals humans frequently keep as pets like cats and dogs.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
(NaturalNews) A new study found that plant based diets are a fundamental solution to our public health crisis, especially with some of the most serious and debilitating illnesses. The physicians at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute found that the frequency and the cost of many illnesses, including obesity, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, can be considerably reduced just by switching to a whole food, nutrient dense, plant-based diet that doesn't include meat or dairy.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
(NaturalNews) Eating out of pure habit is something many people experience without even realizing it. Someone may unknowingly get into the habit of mindless eating while watching TV and then wonder where the few extra pounds came from. After a certain pattern is repeated so many times, that pattern becomes fixed in the brain and must be interrupted or at least noticed in order for it to be broken.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
(NaturalNews) A study recently conducted by a team of researchers at Florida State and Oklahoma University, and featured in the esteemed British Journal of Nutrition, reveals that consuming a handful of natural, dried plums every day will help prevent fractures and osteoporosis in the elderly.
This is great news especially for postmenopausal women, who commonly struggle with the loss of bone density and an increased risk of fracture.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
I have noticed lately the amazing abundance of videos, messages, books and ideas out there about what is taking place within us. I don't usually pay too much attention to this, but this last month as I was moving and unpacking I allowed myself to wander…
I read more stuff online then usual and listened to much of the current dialogue out there about our energetic shifts. I clicked links in emails readers sent me, I watched YouTube videos my friends posted on Facebook. I attended some conference calls on planetary ascension and the Mayan Calendar. None of this is my usual mode of being–I'm typically inwardly focused and my reading, study, meditation and all I digest relates to my current passionate pursuit.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›

Below is a repost of an article published on Americans for Safe Access website: www.safeaccessnow.org in November of 2003.
The article describes how cannabinoids, the active components of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in lab animals and also kill cancer cells. Then it finishes by saying that the US government has known for more than 35 years and that the media which would normally go crazy about a cancer cure story like this, doesn't at all and in fact seem to be burying the story rather than promote it.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
Before I tell you why, I'd like to tell you about a rare afternoon off.
The movie, Atlas Shrugged, was released last Friday. I hardly ever go out to see a movie unless it's a special Imax show, and preferably in 3D. I also rarely take days off. I made exceptions for Atlas Shrugged, and am I glad I did! What an uplifting way to spend part of an afternoon in these times of political and economic uncertainty.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
(NaturalNews) Just about everybody who harks back a few decades are familiar with the famed cartoon character Popeye the Sailor Man, who downed a can of spinach to produce bulging muscles whenever he needed to get out of trouble. As researchers at the Karolinska Institutet in Swedenfound have discovered, it turns out that Popeye was right – spinach really can boost muscles.
According to the research, which was published in the February issue of the journal Cell Metabolism, eating a bowl of spinach every day makes your muscles "profoundly" more efficient.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›

Q: Can you cite specific research that supports your theory that prayer can help people heal?
In 1998, Dr. Elisabeth Targ and her colleagues at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, conducted a controlled, double-blind study of the effects of "distant healing," or prayer, on patients with advanced AIDS. Those patients receiving prayer survived in greater numbers, got sick less often, and recovered faster than those not receiving prayer. Prayer, in this study, looked like a medical breakthrough.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
ScienceDaily (Jan. 21, 2011) — Participating in an 8-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. In a study that will appear in the January 30 issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers report the results of their study, the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain's grey matter.
"Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day," says Sara Lazar, PhD, of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program, the study's senior author.» › › Read the full article by clicking here » › ›
