Titanium dioxide is all over your supermarket.

It’s in chewing gum, candy, bread, doughnuts, yogurt, cake frosting, pastries, mayonnaise, coffee creamer…anything food manufacturers want to make look bright white.

And inflammation is the underlying cause of cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and many other deadly health conditions. A recent medical journal review called inflammation “the most significant cause of death in the world today.”[1]

The Heart Healthiest Way to Make Coffee

For decades, coffee got a bad rap from mainstream doctors. It started with bad science…

A 1946 Johns Hopkins study found that people who drank lots of coffee had a 300% higher risk of heart disease.[1]

The research was nonsense.

The scientists didn’t control for smoking. Back in the day, many people smoked cigarettes with coffee. Subsequent studies discovered it was the smoking, not the coffee, that was causing heart disease in coffee drinkers.
