Trump’s Sniffles: Were They Caused by This Drug?

September 27th, 2016
Donald Trump’s sniffles may be caused by the statin drug he takes. Runny nose is listed as a “common” side effect of this widely-prescribed drug.

Media speculation is rampant over what caused Donald Trump’s constant sniffles during his debate with Hillary Clinton.

Trump loudly sniffed at least 37 times, according to a count by The Washington Post.

Internet memes sprang up about the sniffs. They caused a sensation on social media. Speculation ranged from allergies to drug use. But there’s no evidence Trump is allergic to anything. In fact, it is Hillary who has sinus trouble. And it’s well documented that he doesn’t drink, much less use cocaine.

How Big Sugar Tricked Us Into Worrying About Fat

Refined white sugar, closeup falling from spoon. Health risksdiabetes and obesity.

Concealed payments… Corrupt scientists… A secret conspiracy labeled “Project 226”…  A dogged lone researcher uncovering a diabolical plot.

It sounds like something from a Michael Crichton novel. But it’s not.

It’s all part of Big Sugar’s shameless effort to pay off nutrition researchers to cover up the deadly health effects of its products.1

In the late 1950s and early ‘60s, there were two competing medical theories about the sudden rise in heart disease in America. Some doctors blamed sugar. Others linked it to saturated fats and cholesterol.

This One Vitamin Is a Godsend to Asthma Sufferers

New findings by the Cochrane Review show that a daily vitamin D supplement can dramatically reduce the risk of severe asthma attacks.

Great news for asthma sufferers: Researchers have found a simple, natural way to cut the risk of a severe asthma attack in half.

Asthma is an enormous and sometimes deadly health threat to the 25 million Americans who have it. More 3,000 people a year in the U.S. die from the lung illness.1

Researchers from the Cochrane Review gathered data from seven double-blind placebo-controlled studies of vitamin D’s ability to prevent asthma attacks.2

The studies involved 435 children and 658 adults. They all had mild to severe asthma.

Is Wi-Fi Radiation the Reason You Feel Lousy?

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) may affect up to 10% of the population. It can cause headaches, fatigue, and other debilitating symptoms.

They are called “the undiagnosed.” These are people who go through life feeling lousy. Their doctors are unable to help them or explain the cause of their problems.1

They may suffer symptoms that match a wide range of illnesses, including dizziness, fatigue, nausea, insomnia, headaches, or heart palpitations.2

After going through tests that show nothing is wrong, these patients may be told “it’s all in your head.” And they may resign themselves to living in misery.

MIT Scientists: Sneeze Germs Travel 26 Feet

A new MIT study finds that sneezing spreads germs farther and faster than previously believed.

Sneezing is one of the primary ways disease is spread. You can catch anything from a cold to meningitis to tuberculosis from another person’s sneeze.1

In an effort to understand the dangers of a sneeze, MIT launched an exhaustive study. Scientists wanted to know how far and how fast the germs spread.

Researchers used high-speed cameras recording 4,000 frames per second to minutely detail what exactly emanates from the nose and mouth during sneezes.2

Never Do This if You Have High Blood Pressure

A Turkish study finds that people with high blood pressure dramatically increase their risk of a fatal heart attack when they eat shortly before bedtime.

Habitually eating a late dinner can triple your risk of a deadly heart attack if you have high blood pressure, a new study finds.1

Normally, your blood pressure goes down by about 10% at night. But eating within two hours of bedtime releases a rush of stress hormones that stops your blood pressure from dropping.2 It keeps your body on “high alert” and maintains your blood pressure at daytime levels when you are sleeping. This puts you at greater risk for heart attack and stroke, the study shows.

5 Cancer Symptoms You Are Likely to Ignore

Here are five cancer symptoms you should never ignore.

Most of us know the stereotypical signs of cancer, such as a change in the appearance of a mole, a lump in the breast, persistent coughing, or sudden weight loss.

But there are other symptoms that we don’t think of as pointing to cancer. We might chalk them up to something else. And it’s likely we would do nothing about them, allowing the cancer to grow and become less treatable.

Here are five surprising signs of cancer you should never ignore:

1. “Early satiety” or feeling full quicker than normal. If you start consistently to feel full sooner than usual while eating, don’t ignore it. It may indicate simple treatable conditions like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or a peptic ulcer. But it could indicate a more serious problem, such as pancreatic cancer.1

Study: The Secret to Living Longer Is Family, Not Friends

University of Toronto researchers found that close family relationships are more important to living longer than having a wide circle of friends.

The old expression “blood is thicker than water” holds true for longevity, according to a new study.

Older adults who report being close to family members are more than twice as likely to be alive five years later than those who are close to friends.1

The study looked at social relationships among 3,000 people between the ages of 57 and 85. They were asked to list five of their closest companions and how close they felt to them. Excluding spouses, people listed an average of 2.91 confidantes who they perceived as providing high levels of emotional support.

Why You Shouldn’t Sit Cross-Legged

Sitting with your legs crossed for long stretches can cause back, knee, and hip pain, say experts. And it can worsen varicose veins.

You’ve probably heard about studies showing that sitting for extended periods is bad for you.

Research reveals sitting for hours at a time increases the risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.1 In fact, it is so bad for your health that some experts are calling sitting “the new smoking.”2

Now, new research shows that sitting with your legs crossed is particularly damaging.3

No. 1 Killer: Why Cancer Is Catching Up to Heart Disease

A new CDC report shows that cancer is rapidly surpassing heart disease as the nation’s number one cause of death.

Heart disease has been America’s top killer for decades. But a new government report shows that cancer is closing in fast.

In 2000, cancer was the number one killer in just two states, Alaska and Minnesota. But now, cancer is the top killer in 22 states and gaining fast, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control1

The chart below shows how cancer is taking over. The blue states are places where cancer has emerged since 2000 to replace heart disease as the number one killer. The green states are where heart disease still takes more lives than any other cause.
