Eating Seafood Once a Week Boosts Memory, Study Finds

December 4th, 2016

For centuries, fish has been known as “brain food.” Now, an ongoing research project shows there is a scientific basis for this folklore.

Scientists at Rush University in Chicago have been studying the effects of seafood on the brain for over a decade. As part of the Rush Memory and Aging Project, they have been closely tracking 915 seniors since 1997.

The researchers divided the participants into two groups. One group rarely ate seafood…less than once a week. The second group ate seafood once a week or more.

Red Wine Protects Against Some of Smoking’s Ill Effects

Everybody knows that smoking is bad for your health. But a new study shows that drinking red wine prevents some of the damage it causes.

A new study has uncovered a simple strategy to lessen the damage of smoking: Drink a glass or two of red wine before lighting up.

When you smoke a cigarette, immediate damage occurs in your blood vessels. Smoking introduces toxic chemicals into your bloodstream. They cause inflammation that prematurely ages the endothelial cells that make up the lining of your blood vessels.1

Red wine, however, counteracts this effect. It contains phenol, a natural organic compound. Phenol stimulates the formation of nitric oxide, which is a rich “fertilizer” for endothelial cells. It keeps them healthy and strong. And it makes them less susceptible to smoking damage.2

The Biggest Cancer Risk You’ve Never Heard Of

Smoking, family history, sunburn, chemical exposure… Most of us know these things cause cancer.

But there’s one grave risk factor that flies under the radar. It can increase a woman’s chances of breast cancer by 600%. Only the BRCA gene and age carry a bigger risk.1

Most women have no idea that breast density is strongly linked to cancer. A recent survey by the University of Virginia School of Medicine found that just 1 in 8 women were aware that breast density is a cancer danger. And just 1 in 5 knew that dense breasts reduce the ability of mammograms to find tumors.

5 Hidden Sources of High-Fructose Corn Syrup

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is one of the worst things you can put in your body.

Studies show it is linked to some of the world’s deadliest diseases.1

Why is HFCS so lethal? Unlike other sugars, HFCS is metabolized almost entirely in the liver. And when you drink a soda or eat something full of HFCS, your liver is overwhelmed. It can’t convert the fructose into glucose fast enough. Glucose is a form of sugar your body can readily use.2

Instead, it starts making fats from the fructose…and sending them into the bloodstream.

6 Curable Conditions Doctors Mistake for Alzheimer’s

6 Curable Conditions Doctors Mistake for Alzheimer’s

Here’s one of the biggest scandals in modern medicine: As many as 30% of the 5.3 million Americans told by doctors they have Alzheimer’s disease don’t actually have it.1

This means about 1.6 million people think they have an incurable, deadly disease that is destroying their brain…when in reality they may have an easily treatable condition from which they can make a full recovery.

How can this be? How can Alzheimer’s misdiagnosis be so rampant?

Dr. Eliaz: Use Your Toothbrush to Fight Cancer, Heart Disease

Dr. Isaac Eliaz reveals how keeping a healthy mouth could be key to avoiding cancer, heart disease, and other deadly threats.

By Dr. Isaac Eliaz, M.D.

Your dentist can do more than clean your teeth and keep them pain-free. A good dentist can save your life.

Research demonstrates strong connections between poor oral health and heart disease, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses. As more integrative doctors, dentists, and health providers recognize these important relationships, we can see a gradual expansion in preventative medicine protocols to emphasize holistic oral and dental care.

Why You Should Never Eat in Front of the TV

Eating dinner in front of the TV is a nightly ritual for many people. But a new study shows that it may damage your health.

Researchers found it can be bad for you even if you only have it on the background.1

University of Minnesota scientists examined videos of 120 families eating dinner. The researchers noted whether the TV was on and what their meals consisted of. And they asked families to answer questions about how much they enjoyed the meal.

Breast Cancer: The First Sign Isn’t Always a Lump

A new study shows that breast cancer patients often notice early warning signs other than a lump. Here’s what they are.

For decades, women have been told to be vigilant for one sign of breast cancer above all others: a lump on the breast. Women are taught how to perform self-exams for lumps as part of breast cancer awareness campaigns.

But the emphasis on breast lumps hides a surprising fact: The first symptom of breast cancer is often something else. In 17% of breast cancer cases, the earliest sign is not a lump, according to a new study.1

Scientist Monica Koo led the research. She is a doctoral candidate at University College London. “It’s crucial that women are aware that a lump is not the only symptom of breast cancer,” she said.

CDC Warning: Deadly New Superbug Spreads Through U.S. Hospitals

The CDC has issued an urgent warning about a deadly new superbug spreading through the U.S. If you’ve been in a hospital recently, your life could be at risk.

A lethal new health threat has arrived in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)—and nervous doctors—warn it is contagious, drug-resistant, and extremely deadly.1

Federal health officials report that 13 cases have already been confirmed. Four people are dead. And they fear the infection could spread quickly across the country.2

The fungus is part of the Candida family, Candida auris (C. auris). It’s the newest superbug to become a worldwide threat. It spreads quickly through hospitals and healthcare facilities.

75% of Heart Attack Victims Break This Simple Rule

The vast majority of heart attack sufferers are too embarrassed to follow this simple, life-saving rule.

More than 100,000 Americans die of a heart attack each year. But that number would be much lower if the vast majority of them didn’t ignore one simple rule…

Call 911.

A study in the journal Circulation found that only 23% of people in the hospital for chest pain called 911. The others either drove themselves or had someone else drive them. This delays potentially lifesaving medical treatment.1
