Full-Fat Dairy May Reduce Diabetes Risk

 Dr. Joseph Mercola says that full-fat dairy products may reduce your risk of diabetes and other health problems.
Most mainstream dietary advice recommends low-fat or non-fat dairy. But a growing number of experts argue that it’s far healthier to eat and drink whole dairy products, with all the fat left in.
Dairy foods contain roughly 50 to 60 percent saturated fat, and conventional thinking is that saturated fat is bad for your heart. This idea has been thoroughly refuted as false. It’s a mistaken interpretation of the science. In a 2010 analysis,1 scientists said:
“…There is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of [coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease].”
More recently, research presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Vienna, Austria, found that eating full-fat dairy products such as whole milk, cream, cheese, and butter, reduces your risk of developing diabetes. Read more

Eat More Good Fat

Margaret Durst reveals twenty signs that you may not be getting enough essential fats.

All cells in our bodies use fats as part of the membrane that lets the right things in and keeps the wrong things out. Good fats also help keep tissues lubricated and supple. Most people are deficient in good fats because they are not present in the typical American diet, and the types of fats that are present in typical diets actually block the action of good fats. Good fats are also depleted by eating too much refined grain – particularly wheat and corn.
Bad fats are known for increasing inflammation, increasing cholesterol, increasing blood clotting, and disrupting hormone balances. Good fats help decrease inflammation, decrease cholesterol, decrease blood clotting and balance hormones. Here is a list of symptoms of essential fat deficiency: Read more

You wouldn’t think that taking a little pain pill would cause long term cognitive impairment, but that’s just one of the commonly prescribed (or even OTC) pharmaceutical medications which were studied in a six-year test to see what kind of neurological damage was caused. Unfortunately, the research found that these pharmaceuticals, commonly taken for a variety of common medical conditions including insomnia, allergies, or incontinence, cause long-term damage to the brain. The findings point to a class of drugs called anticholinergics, which block acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter. Read more

The scientists from New York and Kansas also highlight a recent study of 8,670 French adults which found no link between salt and high blood pressure. Read more
