New Study: GMO Soy Accumulates Cancerous Formaldehyde

As if there weren’t plenty of reasons already to avoid genetically modified soy and other soy products – now a new study has made eating this GM crop even less appetizing.

As I previously reported for Natural Society, GM soy is toxic to the kidneys, liver, and reproductive system – and that’s not good considering that almost 90 percent of the soy grown in the US is genetically modified.

Study Concludes FDA GMO Approval Process is Flawed, Outdated, and Unscientific

A new study published July 14, 2015 in the peer-reviewed journal AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES reveals genetic engineering of soy disrupts the plant’s natural ability to control stress, and invalidates the FDA’s current regulatory framework of “substantial equivalence” used for approval of genetically engineered food (GMOs).

Daily vitamin D supplement may prolong remission from Crohn's disease

(NaturalNews) Crohn's disease is a difficult digestive condition marked by chronic inflammation, abdominal pain and bouts of diarrhea. According to the Centers for Disease Control, this disease effects around 200 out of every 10,000 adults here in America and can lead to serious, long-term health problems as well. This is because the inflammation that is a hallmark of this disease can eventually damage the intestines and lead to weight loss and malnutrition which, in turn, can lead to problems like anemia (due to lack of iron) or osteoporosis (due to lack of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D). Conventional medical treatment generally focuses in on reducing the inflammatory response in Crohn's disease that causes these problems to begin with. However, recent research has uncovered that simply supplementing with Vitamin D can help manage this condition as well and lengthen the time in between painful flare-ups.

Since biblical times, dates were to believed to possess profound

healing properties, but only now is science catching up to confirm our

distant ancestors knew exactly what they were talking about.


If you go by the Nutrition Facts panel of an ordinary package of dates, they look more like sugar bombs than a healthy snack. Check this one out:

But are they really as nutritionally vapid as these label claims make them seem?

Not by a long shot.

When we apply the complementary lenses of modern scientific investigation and ancient wisdom, dates begin to look like both a holy- and a super-food of immense value.

Here's a neat example.

Prevention is Better Than Drugs

Prevention is Better Than Drugs

“Optimum nutrition is the medicine of tomorrow,” said twice Nobel prize winner Pauling, who had 48 PhDs. However, here we are in 2014 and both the medical profession and public alike remain largely hypnotised into thinking the way forward for the prevention and treatment of 21st century killer diseases depends on drugs.

So how did we get there and why do we need a quantum leap into the nutritional medicine era? It all started with antibiotics.

Mainstream medicine's cancer treatments of radiation and chemotherapy are far from a cure.
In fact, they make cancer more deadly. But new research shows some common
vegetables may be more effective in battling cancer.


Why? The answer has to do with cancer stem cells (CSCs) that chemo and radiation can't touch.

In a study published in the journal Cancer, UCLA researchers showed that radiation actually makes breast cancer cells MORE malignant.[i] They found that radiation kills about half of the tumor cells treated.

They made a 97-year-old cell line behave as good as new.

By altering the behaviour of two genes responsible for the production of simple amino acids in human cells, scientists have gained a better understanding of how the process of ageing works, and how we could delay or perhaps even reverse it.

The team, led by Jun-Ichi Hayashi at the University of Tsukuba, targeted two genes that produce the amino acid glycine in the cell’s mitochondria, and figured out how to switch them on and off. By doing this, they could either accelerate the process of ageing within the cell, which caused signifiant defects to arise, or they could reverse the process of ageing, which restored the capacity for cellular respiration. Using this technique to produce more glycine in a 97-year-old cell line for 10 days, the researchers restored cellular respiration, effectively reversing the cell line’s age.

Originally published on Independent Science News.

The tide is turning against the globalization of GMO-based agriculture and forced feeding with consumers leading the charge from the bottom up demanding informed consent (e.g. labeling, independent science) and organic alternatives.

The decision of the Chipotle restaurant chain to make its product lines GMO-free is not most people's idea of a world-historic event. Especially since Chipotle, by US standards, is not a huge operation. A clear sign that the move is significant, however, is that Chipotle's decision was met with a tidal-wave of establishment media abuse. Chipotle has been called irresponsible, anti-science, irrational, and much more by the Washington Post, Time Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, and many others. A business deciding to give consumers what they want was surely never so contentious.

The media lynching of Chipotle has an explanation that is important to the future of GMOs. The cause of it is that there has long been an incipient crack in the solid public front that the food industry has presented on the GMO issue. The crack originates from the fact that while agribusiness sees GMOs as central to their business future, the brand-oriented and customer-sensitive ends of the food supply chain do not.

Vitamin D Deficiency Is Way More Rampant Than We Believed

We need far more vitamin D than previously thought, according to two teams of researchers from Canada and the U.S.

The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin D is ten times lower than what we actually need, say two teams of researchers who have challenged the US's National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM), both responsible for the RDA.

"The error has broad implications for public health regarding disease prevention and achieving the stated goal of ensuring that the whole population has enough vitamin D to maintain bone health," says Dr. Cederic Garland, an adjunct professor at University of California, San Diego.

MAASTRICHT, The Netherlands, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Only months after the American Heart Association gave up its warnings about dietary cholesterol, the cholesterol dogma of cardiovascular disease has now received its hardest blow yet. Scientific confirmation has just been published in the 'American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease' that atherosclerosis, the underlying process of heart attacks and strokes, is generally not caused by high cholesterol blood levels. It is rather the result of a structural weakness of the blood vessel walls caused by chronic deficiency of ascorbate (vitamin C).
