Best Evidence Yet!: Ejaculation Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk

NEW ORLEANS — Good news, men: you may be able to decrease your risk for prostate cancer by ejaculating — frequently, according to research presented here at American Urological Association 2015 Annual Meeting.



The frothy advice is not new but is now backed up by the "strongest evidence to date" on the subject, according to lead author Jennifer Rider, ScD, MPH, an epidemiologist at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston.

"There is no modifiable risk factor for developing prostate cancer," Dr Rider told Medscape Medical News. "It would be exciting to tell men that there was a way to modify their risk."

However, she noted that these are observational data and urged caution when "interpreting them."
The results are "fascinating," said Jesse Sammon, MD, a urologist at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, who attended Dr Rider's presentation. "It was the highlight of the session on cancer epidemiology; the moderator called it the 'study most likely to be tweeted'."

These are "incredibly high-quality data," said Dr Sammon, who was not involved with the study.
The data come from nearly 32,000 men in the prospective Health Professionals Follow-up Study, who now have been followed for 18 years.......CLICK HERE to read the whole article.

20 Tips for Better Sleep

1. Power Down

The soft blue glow from a cell phone, tablet, or digital clock on your bedside table may hurt your sleep.
Tip: Turn off TVs, computers, and other blue-light sources an hour before you go to bed. Cover any displays you can't shut off.



2. Nix Naps

You’ll rest better at night. But if you have to snooze while the sun's up, keep it to 20 minutes or less. Nap in the early part of the day.
Tip: Overcome an afternoon energy slump with a short walk, a glass of ice water, or a phone call with a friend.

Health Benefits of Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius)

What is Yacon (雪莲果, Smallanthus sonchifolius)

Yacon, which may more commonly be known as the Peruvian ground apple, is a plant native to South America and grown for its crunchy tuberous roots. This perennial plant can easily be identified by its small, yellow, daisy-like flowers surrounded by dark green leaves. It may grow to over 2 meters in height and happens to belong to the same family as sunflowers. It also happens to be pest-free and drought resistant, and so can be easily grown almost anywhere all year round as long as there is no frost. Yacon roots are sweet-tasting and crisp; they are described as a sort of winter delicacy in spite of being a vegetable.


What are the health benefits of Yacon?

Some of the most popular yacon health benefits include the control of blood sugar levels, control of cholesterol level, boosting immune system and helping in weight loss. The yacon root is full of health benefits some might be undiscovered but let’s take a look at a few ones.
  • Potential Weight Loss Aid: Yacon is a potential weight loss agent therefore known as “Diet potato”. It is a low calorie root and it is made up of fructooligosacharide which helps one to feel full longer.
  • Control Of Type II Diabetes: Yacon contain inulin, which is a type of fructose found in the yacon tuber. Some researchers have claimed that it’s useful in insulin independent diabetes, such as type II diabetes for regulating blood sugar levels. Research is still being continued and researchers are striving to document any importance of this plant in diabetes, which could be revolutionizing in the field of medicine as a therapeutic agent.
  • Used As Natural Sweetener: They can be used in the preparation of sugar free sweeteners for diabetic patients and those who are motivated to lose weight. You can also add yacon sweetener in coffee and tea.
  • Cancer Prevention: It is a potent anticancer agent for it inhibits the proliferation of mutant cells by initiating apoptosis (programmed cell death). It is found effective against skin, colon and blood cancer.
  • Prevention Of Fatty Liver: Yacon is an important regulator of body fat and prevent excessive cholesterol accumulation, thus protecting liver function by assisting it in cholesterol metabolism. It helps in metabolic processes of body.
  • Reduced Triglycerides: Yacon contain fructooligosaccharide that lowers bad cholesterol (triglycerides and low density lipoprotein). Low level of triglyceride is associated with reduce risk of heart attacks and stroke.
  • Prebiotic Effects: It is associated with correction of digestion by increasing intestinal flora and preventing colitis.
  • Cure For Constipation: It is a used to increase intestinal motility thus reducing constipation.
  • Antioxidant Activity: Chemical analysis of yacon has shown antioxidant activity which prevents the body from inflammatory and chronic diseases. This is one of the chief yacon root benefits. These antioxidants were extracted by methanol from the yacon plant. Caffeic acid, Ferulic acid and Chlorogenic are the anti oxidants found in the leaves of yacon.
  • Anti Fungal: Yacon leaves have reported important anti fungal effects. The yacon leaf may be used in the treatment of fungal diseases like athlete’s foot.
  • Tribal And Herbal Medicine: In South America, yacon plants are used as tribal medicines for kidney and bladder problems and also for cystitis, nephritis and externally for myalgia................CLICK HERE for more details.

Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) - MEDICATION ALERT - PLEASE READ THIS

Message from FSNA member: 

Hi, Everyone, I am passing this email forwarded to me this morning. It's about a medication that is familiar to many of us.

Note also the FDA 's comments at the end of the message. I received this information from a friend whose mother recently passed away. Apparently, this was caused by a medication that is deadly.

Here are the details and I suggest you pass it on to your loved ones and others.

I would like to thank those of you who expressed condolences on the recent passing of my mother. She suffered a hemorrhagic stroke while she was driving home from my house at 7:30 and passed away at 8:30. My mother's stroke and passing was an enormous shock to my family because she did not have any symptoms or risk factors for a stroke.

Just the week before she had gone to her doctor for a check up and received a clean bill of health. She did, however, develop a cold while she was visiting me and had taken Alka Seltzer Cold Plus for 3 days. Since her passing, we have learned that Alka Seltzer is one of the many cold medicines that contains Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) which can cause hemorrhagic strokes (cerebral bleeding) even with the first use.

I am forwarding a list of other medications that currently use PPA. These medicines are supposedly being recalled but my mother just purchased this medication less than two weeks ago. Pharmaceutical companies have known about this danger for years, we unfortunately, did not. I urge you to review the list of medicines with PPA and avoid these medications.

All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are dangerous. You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND. Please read this CAREFULLY. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know. STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient.
It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication.

Problems were not found in men, but the FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine. The following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine:

Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant

12 Unbelievable Reasons to Consume Spirulina (#4 is Awesome!)

You might have heard about spirulina but thought that this was something that only health nuts got into. Maybe you though spirulina was a new rock band. Then again, maybe you’ve never heard of spirulina.

In case you haven’t heard, spirulina is a type of blue-green algae. This is an incredible super food that provides humans with a super concentrated source of antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients. Spirulina is perhaps one of the oldest forms of life on this planet and was used for food as far back as the 9th century in Chad and was consumed by the Aztecs in 16th century Mexico.

Why should you consume spirulina? We have 12 almost unbelievable reasons and after you read them, you will understand what all the fuss is about.....CLICK HERE to read the whole article.

Antibiotics Will Soon be Useless

Bacteria like E.coli have mutated to be resistant to our last-line antibiotics and untreateable bugs may already be circulating, scientists have warned.

Health experts have warned for years that antibiotic resistance could send medicine back to the dark ages, with even the smallest infections proving lethal.

Currently, when all other drugs fail, doctors use polymyxins - such as colistin - as a last resort to treat bacterial infections like E.coli and those which cause pneumonia.
But British scientists have discovered that meat from pigs slaughtered in China is infected with bacteria carrying a new gene that makes them resistant to these rearguard antibiotics.
The MCR-1 gene is in a part of the DNA which can be easily copied and transferred between bacteria, leading experts to conclude that "pandemic resistance is inevitable".
The mutated forms were also found in 1322 hospitalised patients in China and are thought to have already spread to Laos and Malaysia.

This One Plant Kills Cancer And Stops Diabetes And More!

Goya or Bitter melon (you may have also heard it referred to as Karela, Balsam Pear or Bitter Gourd), is commonly used for many different health benefits. The melon is a very helpful food, but it has an extremely bitter taste. On first look the Goya looks like a cucumber but with ugly gourd–like bumps all over it. It thrives in humid and hot climates, so they are commonly found in South America and Asian countries.
This One                                                           Plant Kills                                                           Cancer And                                                           Stops Diabetes                                                           Plus More!
Dr. Frank Shallenberger M.D., who specializes in Anti Aging Treatment and Alternative Medicine at The Nevada Center of Alternative & Anti – Aging Medicine, has used the fruit to fight pancreatic cancer. Dr. Shallenberger has found bitter melon to be an effective tool in inhibiting cancer cell growth and advises his patients to go for natural substances that inhibit cancer cell growth.
 
During his latest research, Dr. Shallenberger found that when bitter melon juice is diluted to 5% in water, it proved to be very effective in fighting pancreatic cancer. Bitter melon was able to damage cancer cell lines by a rate of 90% and 98%. The University of Colorado tested bitter melon’s effect further and found a 64% reduction in the size of the pancreatic tumors.
 
Dr. Shallenberger’s research is just one of the many health benefits bitter melon has to offer. Bitter melon has also been used as a remedy for high blood pressure, asthma, skin infections, diabetes symptoms and stomach problems. The plant has been used as a traditional medicine in Africa, India, China and the southeastern US.
 
Bitter melons contain high amounts of nutrients, but are very low in calories. It is an excellent source of magnesium, manganese, high dietary fiber, vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, folate, zinc, and phosphorus. It contains twice the beta – carotene of broccoli, it is rich in iron, twice the potassium of a banana and twice the calcium of spinach. Even with all of the beneficial nutrients it has to offer, one negative about the bitter melon is that its bitter taste detracts a lot of people from consuming it.

Health Benefits of Bitter Melon

  • Regular consumption of bitter gourd juice has been proven to improve stamina and energy levels.
  • Bitter melon is an excellent source of folate. When taken by mothers during early pregnancy, folate helps reduce the incidence of neural tube defects in newborn babies.
  • Type 2 Diabetes. Bitter melon notably contains polypeptide – P, phyto – nutrient, a plant insulin known to lower blood sugar levels. Even more, bitter melon contains a unique phyto – constituent that has been confirmed to have charantin which increases glycogen synthesis and glucose uptake inside the cells of muscle, liver and adipose tissue. Together, these two reduce blood sugar levels in the treatment of type – 2 diabetes.
  • Immune booster.This bitter juice can also help to increase your body’s resistance against infection and build your immune system.
  • Eye problems. The high beta – carotene and other properties in bitter melon make it one of the healthiest fruits that helps improve eyesight and alleviate eye problems.
  • By speeding up your body’s metabolism of alcohol, bitter melon can help relieve hangovers. It also helps repair , cleanse and nourish liver problems due to alcohol consumption.
  • Indigestion/Constipation.Bitter melon stimulates peristalsis of food and easy digestion through the bowel until it is excreted from the body.
  • Liver Cleanse.Bitter melon helps cleanse and detoxify your liver, especially when consumed as a juice. In addition it helps relieve gout pain and improves blood circulation.
  • Regular consumption of bitter juice has also been known to improve psoriasis conditions and other fungal infections like athletes feet and ringworm.

Best ways to consume bitter melon

Unlike some other vegetables and fruits it is best to pick a bitter melon that is firm and still green. You may want to avoid if the bitter melon is starting to turn orange or has soft spots (the more bitter the taste, the riper the melon gets).
 
It is best to clean your bitter melon under cold running water and brush with a soft vegetable brush.
  • Okinawantir – fry with bitter melon, Goya chanpuru, pork, onion, eggs, tofu, and is a special dish of health – conscious island inhabitants.
  • Dried, and ground whole bitter gourd has been used in the preparation of iced or milk tea in some East Asian regions.
  • In India it is commonly used stuffed with garam – masala or in stir – fries, green chilies, tomato, curry leaves onions and garlic.
  • Bitter gourd is also been used in the pickle preparations.
  • In the Philippines it is known as ampalaya, it has been widely used in special dishes like Pinakbet Ilocano, prepared with shrimp paste and mixed with vegetables like okra and eggplant.
It is definitely something worth trying, if you can withstand the bitter taste of this fruit. The beneficial nutrients alone make it worthy of consumption. It is an almost ideal food to include in your diet for additional health benefits.

Cholesterol Is Finally Officially Removed From 'Naughty' List

The US government has finally accepted that cholesterol is not a 'nutrient of concern', doing a U-turn on their warnings!

Cholesterol has been on the "naughty" list of nutrients for nearly 40 years, with health officials warning us to stay away from high-cholesterol foods since the 1970s to avoid heart disease and clogged arteries.

But US officials have finally given the green light for a U-turn on previous warnings, which means eggs, butter, full-fat dairy products, nuts, coconut oil and meat have now been classified as "safe" and have been officially removed from the "nutrients of concern" list.

The US Department of Agriculture, which is responsible for updating the guidelines every five years, stated in its findings for 2015: "Previously, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommended that cholesterol intake be limited to no more than 300 mg/day.

"The 2015 DGAC will not bring forward this recommendation because available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, consistent with the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association / American College of Cardiology) report.....CLICK HERE to read the whole article.

Extensive Research on Papaya Leaf Juice

The Institute for Medical Research (IMR) of Malaysia has started research on the healing properties of papaya leaf juice as a cure for dengue.
IMR medical officer Dr Soobitha Subendran said the research is expected to be completed in two years.
Dr Soobitha said the leaf does not miraculously cure dengue patients, instead it is a “supportive treatment” that helps accelerate the recovery process that usually takes nine to 10 days.
“I have personally witnessed the speedy recovery of patients administered the papaya leaf extract compared to the control group that received standard dengue treatment in the previous clinical trial conducted by IMR,” said Dr Soobitha.
Those intending to take the papaya leaf extract should consult a doctor first before doing so and once cleared by a certified health specialist, can start taking two tablespoons a day for a maximum of three days.
A brochure distributed by IMR details the safe preparation of the papaya leaf juice. Firstly, pick two mature leaves before removing the stump and then wash the leaves thoroughly before soaking for 15 minutes, followed by one last rinse.
Next, it is recommended to either blend, in a blender, or pound the leaves in a pestle and mortar to extract the juice before consuming.
 

FLORIDA STUDY DISCOVERS ANTICANCER PROPERTIES IN PAPAYA LEAF:

 

It’s no cure, but papaya leaf has scientifically verified cancer slowing properties. A study by the University of Florida documented the impact of papaya leaf extract on lab-grown tumors and discovered the extract’s ability to slow cancerous tumor growth without the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
10 different types of cancer including cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreatic cancers were exposed to papaya leaf extract. In every single case, the extract slowed the growth of the tumors, and the larger the dose of papaya leaf extract, the stronger the anticancer effects.
This is great news for everyone, because millions of people suffer from cancer directly or indirectly everyday, and the numbers keep growing. Mountains of money are thrown towards research for cancer cures, but to this day, cancer remains an incurable disease.
Could mother nature hold the cure to this chronic illness in the glowing green juice of the papaya plant? Alternative medicine might be on to something.
PAPAYA LEAF EXTRACT AND TH1-TYPE CYTOKINES
Th1-type cytokines are hormonal messengers responsible for the biological effects of the immune system. Papaya leaf extract boosts the production of these molecules, giving you a stronger, healthier immune system.
Additional Healing Properties of Papaya Leaf Extract
  • Revitalizes the human body by maintaining energy and vitality
  • Supports cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health
  • Prevents cataract formation
  • Alleviates inflammation
  • helps with nausea and constipation
  • Can help to reduce blood sugar levels

Stand Up to Fight Sitting Disease

By Michael W. Smith, MD WebMD Chief Medical Editor Do you have sitting disease? Chances are you do. You’ve probably guessed the remedy — stand up. Move. But for how long, and what exactly do you need to do? A flurry of studies in recent years shows that we’re slowly killing ourselves by sitting too long on our tuckuses. The number of health problems associated with prolonged sitting continues to grow, from too much belly fat to heart disease and even cancer. Now experts are telling us we should be on our feet at least two hours during the workday. But maybe as little as a 2-minute walk every hour is enough – at least according to a recent study that showed this minimal amount of walking decreased the chance of premature death by 33%. Who’s right? Can’t experts just agree? Well, they do.......CLICK HERE to read the whole article.

Sleep And Type 2 Diabetes Strange Link Discovered

Have you ever been trying to get a job done and you keep getting interrupted? Does the quality of the work then suffer?

This analogy helps explain new research tying a specific sleep pattern to the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Many factors can contribute to whether or not a person will develop type 2 diabetes, most notably being overweight or obese, a diet high in sugars and refined carbs, or other metabolic disorders like high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

But some people are at increased risk even if they are at a healthy weight and their diet is fine. CLICK HERE to read the whole article.

Most profound article on cancer ever written


By Dr. Kelley Eidem


The reason I say this is the most profound
and powerful article ever written about cancer
is due to the tremendous response readers
have provided, including from medical doctors.

Once you read it, you'll see why. You might not
fear cancer ever again - that's how powerful
this article is.

My goal in sharing this article with you for FREE
is that you'll help share it by forwarding this article
to your email buddy list, so that eventually everyone
who needs to see it will have seen it.

The shame is your doctor most likely doesn't know
this information because he was never taught it.

All cancer is coated in snot (Your doctor calls it "fibrin" or "exudate.")

The number one reason cancer is able to grow
is due to excess sticky fibrin. Fibrin and exudate
are fancy medical names for 'snot.'

If cancer is both protected by snot and spreads due to snot, what happens to your cancer cells if you were to take the snot away?

If you get rid of the sticky snot that surrounds
cancer cells and helps to feed the cancer cells,
then the cancer will starve and go away. It really
is that simple.
Stay with me here and you might know how to
pretty much cure or at least shrink any cancer
by the time you get to the bottom of this short
1,500 word article.

Further down, the connection between a runny
nose and curing cancer will be explained more
thoroughly.
It's not often discussed but, cancer cells are covered
with lots of sticky fibrin (exudate). It's shocking how
much of this yucky white substance that cancer cells
produce, in fact.
There is about 15 times as much fibrin surrounding a cancer
cell than any of your healthy cells. Ask any pathologist
or surgeon, and they will confirm for you that tumors
are covered in this sticky mess.
Nasal snot is also heavily laden with fibrin. We will get
back to that connection in just a minute.
So why is snot/fibrin so important for the survival and growth
of cancer cells? Let's count the ways.
  1. Fibrin's stickiness mucks up the ability of the
    immune system to reach the cancer cells to
    kill them.

  2. Fibrin provides the support structure for the
    cancer cells' feeding tubes.

  3. Fibrin protects the feeding tubes with its
    stickiness.
So what happens if the fibrin is washed away?
The cancer cells are naked and exposed 
  1. to our immune system.
     
  2. The feeding tubes are exposed and tend
    to flatten, thus losing their proper structure.
As is taught in anatomy and physiology classes
from day one: Structure determines function.

The feeding tubes need the fibrin support to stay
open and function properly, i.e., to feed the cancer
cells enough blood and nutrients.
Since the cancer cell isn't able to get enough
"food" through its blood vessels when the blood
vessels are collapsed, the cancer cells begin
to starve and grow weak.
So how do you get rid of the excess fibrin?
 
The connection between runny noses and melting cancer
To make the explanation really simple, do you
remember when you ate a hot, spicy food like
a pepper, horseradish or wasabi and it made
your nose run? The runny discharge is partly
fibrin.
Ask any Ear, Nose & Throat doctor and they
will confirm that there is lots of fibrin in snot.
It's the same fibrin that is in your nose that
also surrounds cancer cells!
So here we have a connection between cancer
and snot. But more importantly, since hot spices
melt the fibrin in your nose, they would also
have the same effect on excess fibrin anywhere
in your body.
For example, we know that if we eat too much
of a really spicy food, it can melt our feces
to an extent turning it into a watery discharge,
right?
The glue that holds your poop together is
a mucous coating, ie, FIBRIN. Eat too much
hot stuff and the fibrin melts. The result of the
melting of the fibrin in feces is a watery stool.
A pattern is developing here:
Melt fibrin in the nose = watery discharge.
Melt fibrin in the stool = watery discharge.
Melt fibrin around the cancer cell = watery discharge
Can the hot stuff go throughout the body? Yes.
If you doubt it, as an experiment sprinkle some
cayenne or ginger powder in your shoes. Not only
will your feet get warm, but your whole body does
too.

Outdoor construction workers who are "in the know"
use this to their advantage during the winter time.
The volatile oils penetrate the skin and travel through
the bloodstream.
From this type of evidence of how the heat from
volatile oils can be transferred through the socks
and skin that has been used millions of times,
it is unnecessary to provide further proof any more
than we need further proof not to touch a hot stove.
Eating hot spicy food does much the same -
even more - in fact.
As a matter of fact, people with cancer have reported
to me that using Sinus Buster, a capsaicin spray,
has temporarily eliminated excruciating cancer pain
even in their bones.

This is confirmation that the oils travel through
the bloodstream and throughout the body to wherever
it is needed.
(Now don't run off and start spraying Sinus Buster
in your nose like crazy. Too much can cause a rebound
effect, but that's a topic for a separate discussion
too long to address here.)
From your own experience of a runny nose, you can
see how overpowering the volatile oils in things like
hot peppers, onions, horseradish, etc, are and how
utterly defeated the fibrin is compared to them. It's more
powerful than holding a flame to wax. The fibrin
and the wax melt.
The fibrin in cancer is no different than any other fibrin
in the body in this respect in that the snotty fibrin
becomes watery when exposed to the compounds
in hot spices.
Fibrin is an absolute weakling when it comes into contact
with the volatile oils in spicy food. You simply melt away
the 'snot' and the cancer cells grow weak due to starvation.

That's because the feeding tubes collapse and also
because the tumor itself is exposed having lost its sticky
protective coating.
The capsaicin in peppers and ginger have additional
properties for turning off cancer cells as has been
reported in various studies, but that, too is a topic
for a separate discussion.
So now you can see why cancer can be wiped out rather
quickly if you use the right tools.
Now let's get really plain here and really "real."
Did you need chemo the last time you had snot in your
nose? Heck no! Chemo is unnecessary - it fact chemo is
counterproductive in eliminating fibrin because chemo
has been shown to increase fibrin production.
That's right. Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer
Research Center published a stunning paper in 2014
that confirmed what we already suspected...

Chemo makes cancer spread faster!
How does chemo do that? The researchers wrote the
mechanism at work is that chemo increases the production
of fibrin!
Increased fibrin = increased cancer growth.
Decreased fibrin = decreased cancer growth.
Let me circle back to the dried snot that can appear in our
noses, if you were smart enough to go eat some hot spicy
food, or sprayed your nose with a capsaicin product like
Sinus Buster your snotty nose got resolved in a couple
minutes time.
That speed is a powerful testament to just how fast
the volatile oils can work to transform a hardened substance
like fibrin into a watery discharge.
There are many things that will do that. Hot peppers, ginger
and garlic are three of them. The hotter the pepper, the better.

Modified citrus pectin, and proteolytic (systemic) enzymes
are two more. Probably any volatile oil from spices will have
a positive effect.
Because volatile oils are...well...volatile, the most potent
herbs and spices would be those that are freshly grated
or 'bruised.'
 As an example. a fresh mint leaf that is freshly
rubbed will release the oils.

Powdered herbs from a spice jar have lost almost all their kick,
so I would not rely on them if I had cancer. Cooking the spices
also dissipates and wastes the volatile oils if one wants to attack
cancer cells. 
Within several minutes most of the active oil from any spice will
dissipate. Freshly grated spices might be 10 times more potent
than spices from a shelf rack, for instance.
Melt away the fibrin, and the cancer has no leg to stand on.
It's not hard, and cancer need not be scary. As you can see
cancer is weak and vulnerable once you know the keys to success.
Wipe out the 'snot" - turn the sticky stuff into a watery discharge
and you're 90% there, maybe even 100%.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if this information went viral? If you like
this article please consider forwarding it to your buddy list.

You might help someone reverse their cancer. Don't change
anything in the article as it might affect their results. 
The best to you.

An Interview with Dr. Devi Shetty, one of the most renowned Heart surgeons in India today and a world class cardiologist

 
 
Question: What are the thumb rules for a layman to take care of his heart?

Turmeric and Alzheimer's




They've been looking for a cure, but so far have found nothing.

The search for an Alzheimer's drug has been almost a complete and total
failure.

Experts are saying that over 99 percent of the research they've been
spending years -- and billions of dollars on -- has gone nowhere.

But could the answer be right there under our nose?

And I mean that literally. Right under our nose in the pungent aroma of
dishes that use the spice turmeric.

Because there have been some very important studies done on this spice that
might help those showing signs of both Alzheimer's *and* dementia.

Researchers found that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in
turmeric may be powerful enough to break up the amyloid plaques in the
brain that contribute to Alzheimer's disease.

That could be due to the fact that turmeric is an antioxidant powerhouse
that also has anti-inflammatory effects.

And it could also explain why the rate of Alzheimer's in India (where
turmeric is widely consumed) is among the lowest in the world.

We've been hearing good news about turmeric for years, but this new
research looked at thousands of studies, data and articles about the spice.
And what it uncovered is that this remarkable root has more than 600
"potential preventive and therapeutic applications."

The health benefits of turmeric and its active ingredient curcumin -- the
spice that gives curry its familiar aroma and yellow hue -- have been found
in a new study to be as effective as 14 different drugs.




The researchers also compared the effectiveness of turmeric to some
big-selling drugs, and what they found was next to astounding. Not only did
turmeric do what these conventional meds claim to, but it did so without
risking any of the deadly side effects that these drugs bring along with
them.

   - Cholesterol -- A 2004 study found that turmeric reduces bad
   cholesterol, helps fight plaque buildup in the arteries and can be as
   effective as Lipitor.
   - Several studies have found that turmeric is as effective as steroid
   drugs in reducing inflammation.
   - A study published in 2011 found the spice to be just as good in
   relieving depression as popular antidepressants drugs like Prozac.
   - Research discovered that turmeric is an effective blood thinner, like
   aspirin, but with none of the side effects.
   - A 2009 study found that turmeric can be thousands of times more
   effective than drugs for diabetes such as Metformin. That research also
   uncovered that turmeric works in the liver to keep glucose levels down in
   diabetics.

So keep enjoying curry and other dishes that contain Turmeric, because the
good news about this spice is bound to just keep getting better.
