Fast and Natural Way to Purify Tap Water

July 29th, 2016
Cilantro can be used to get rid of heavy metal contaminants in water, a new study finds.

Since the Flint, Mich., water crisis more Americans are concerned about what’s coming out of their taps.

There’s good reason to worry… Even if you don’t live in Flint. Studies of more than 24 municipal water supplies found tap water with unhealthy levels of copper, aluminum, lead, mercury, and nickel.

These heavy metals accumulate in the body and can cause serious health issues. In Flint, thousands of children face brain damage because of lead poisoning. But heavy metals cause problems in adults, too. They include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, epilepsy, and kidney failure

Scientists: Mouse Poop and Rat Hair in Your Food… Why That’s a Good Thing

: The FDA’s Defect Levels Handbook describes acceptable levels of rodent droppings, rat hair, and insect parts allowed in foods.

The FDA publishes something called the Defect Levels Handbook. It sets allowable limits for “natural or unavoidable defects in foods that present no health hazards for humans.”

You might be surprised what is allowed in food. The FDA lists 179 “defects” allowed in over 100 types of foods we eat. Many of them are stomach-turning.

The most common defect, with 71 mentions, is insects. This includes whole insects, body parts, larvae, and mites.1 Mold ranked second, with 33 mentions of defect levels allowed.2

Rodent hairs are the next most-frequent defect. There are 23 allowable levels depending on the food product.

Why Pill Organizers Actually Make You Sicker

A new British study finds that seniors who start using a pill organizer risk serious health problems.

If you’re using a pill organizer, you might want to throw it in the garbage. A new study has found that older people who start using a pill organizer are actually more likely to become ill.1

Big Pharma loves pill organizers. They make a fortune when people take so many drugs they need a special box to keep track of them. But what’s good for Big Pharma can be toxic to your health.

The new study followed 29 seniors taking multiple medications. Fifteen were asked to use pill organizers, while 14 continued taking their pills out of the original packaging.

No More Senior Moments: 5 Quick Memory Boosters

Senior moments are embarrassing and annoying. But researchers have uncovered simple memory tricks that boost your brain and make recall easier.

“Senior moments” happen to us all at some point. We can’t remember the grocery item we needed… Or the phone number we thought we had memorized… Or the name of a person we just met.

It’s a fact of biology: As we get older, our short-term memory power wanes. There’s decreased blood flow to the brain. Neural growth declines. Memory formation and retrieval deteriorates.1

But there are ways to fight it. Researchers have uncovered simple and surprising ways to overcome the normal memory lapses that come with age.

Diet Soda Makes You Hungrier… And Fatter

Researchers at the University of Sydney found that artificial sweeteners in diet soda make people eat up to 50% more calories.

Do you drink diet soda because you think it helps stop you from gaining weight? Think again.

A new study shows that diet soda makes you hungry to point that you can increase your caloric intake by as much as 50%.1

It’s just the latest research showing that artificially-sweetened soda may be even worse for your health than the sugary variety. We previously told you how zero-calorie soft drinks are linked to diabetes, cancer, and stroke.

Study Uncovers One Simple Secret for Happiness

Eating more fruits and vegetables makes people dramatically happier, a new study finds.

An astonishing study has found a simple secret to happiness. And it’s as easy as reaching for the vegetable drawer in your refrigerator.

Scientists from the University of Warwick in England and the University of Queensland in Australia led the research. They wanted to determine the psychological effects of eating more fruits and vegetables.1

Many studies have already found that a diet heavy in these two food groups reduce the risk of cancer, heart attacks, and other health woes.

Stanford Study Reveals Which Canned Food Is Most Dangerous to Your Health

A Stanford University study finds that canned soups raise BPA levels far more than other canned foods.

A new study reveals which canned foods are highest in the harmful chemical Bisphenol A. It’s commonly known as BPA.

BPA is a hormone disrupter. It binds to hormones, reprogramming the cells they target. This leads to an array of health problems.1

BPA is linked to:

  • Infertility
  • Low testosterone
  • Obesity
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Heart disease
  • Breast and prostate cancers

Memory Loss: How to Tell if It’s Alzheimer’s

Here’s how to tell the difference between the normal memory loss associated with aging and Alzheimer’s disease.

“Where are my darn car keys…what’s the name of my neighbor’s barking dog…I can’t remember where we’re going to dinner tonight.”

“Could I have early Alzheimer’s disease?”

If you’ve had these thoughts, don’t panic. As we get older, we all experience some memory loss. Neural growth declines and blood flow to the brain decreases. Both impair our memory.

Big Pharma: We’ll Decide the Rules for Painkillers

Doctors on Big Pharma’s payroll are being allowed to help write new rules for prescribing opioid painkillers.

It’s no secret our nation is in the midst of a prescription drug addiction epidemic. Since 1999, fatal painkiller overdoses have quadrupled. So have sales of these dangerous medications.1

The latest numbers show that 165,000 Americans have died in the epidemic.

This is more Americans than were killed in World War I, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War, and the Afghanistan War… combined.2

Clearly, we are a nation in crisis.

Top 10 Best Houseplants for Purifying Indoor Air

These are the top 10 houseplants to purify indoor air.

The air in your house can be filled with pollutants. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor air pollution can be up to eight times worse than outside air pollution:1

  • New carpets, furniture glues, and wet paint release dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They have been linked to cancer and asthma.
  • Flame retardant carpet padding contains hormone-disrupting chemicals.
  • Common plastic household items release the industrial solvent 1,2-dichlorethane (DCA). It has been labeled a possible human carcinogen. Some plastics contain acetone, which is harmful to the lungs.
