Glyphosate Is Causing Fatty Liver Disease

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, has been making headlines for its potential to cause cancer, but another serious disease has also been linked to this ubiquitous chemical: non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), particularly the most advanced cases. Staggering amounts of glyphosate have been applied worldwide in recent decades. Since 1974, for instance, more than 1.6 billion kilograms (or about 3.5 billion pounds) of glyphosate have been used in the U.S. alone, accounting for 19% of its overall usage worldwide. Two-thirds of the total volume of glyphosate applied in the U.S. from 1974 to 2014 was applied in the last 10 years1 — a time during which rates of NAFLD also increased. As more and more glyphosate has been sprayed on agricultural lands, parks, and backyards, entering our food and water supplies, NAFLD rates have trended upward, from a prevalence of 15% in 2005 to 25% in 2010.2 Is there a connection? The answer increasingly appears to be yes.

The Power of Seva

Seva is a Sanskrit term that translates literally as “together with” and represents the act of performing charity work or service without any expectation, acknowledgment, or recognition in return. Seva can be applied to anything: people, animals, the environment, your community, your country, the world. It does not require a particular setting or location, nor does it need to be done at a particular time or frequency. There are no application processes or standards for the doer, other than the work be done selflessly. This is very important because seva gives peace of mind and satisfaction for you, the person doing the work because you did something for your community. When you do seva you should not advertise to others, otherwise, you will not reap the benefits of whatever seva you’ve done.

Glyphosate found in popular brands of beer and wine

Glyphosate found in organic beer and wine, research reveals. To conduct the test, researchers evaluated 20 samples of domestic and imported wines and beers, all sold in the United States.  Sampled wine brands included conventionally-grown varieties such as Barefoot, Beringer, and Sutter Home. And, yes, two organically grown wines, Frey and Inkarri Estates, were included. In terms of beer, researchers looked at Coors, Corona, Heineken, Sam Adams, Stella Artois, and Tsingtao. A pair of organic beers, Peak and Samuel Smith, were tested as well. Disturbingly, all samples of the beverages contained glyphosate – albeit in varying levels.

exercise

A surprising way how your muscles respond to exercise

“Use it or lose it.”  You’ve heard that saying before.  Simply put, if you don’t exercise – for a long enough period of time – your muscles will lose their strength and all your hard work (previously done) in training and recovery will be for nothing. But, wait a minute: this is only true to an extent.  New information revealed in a breaking new review from Frontiers in Physiology adds an important nuance to this well-known adage.  The authors of the review propose a better way to say it: “Use it or lose it…until you use it again.”

Sunscreens Seep Poison Into Your Bloodstream

Sunscreens Seep Poison Into Your Bloodstream

While there are instances where sunscreen may be prudent, these products are widely overused and contribute to widespread vitamin D deficiency. In my view, sunscreen is rarely needed, provided you’re following sensible sun exposure guidelines to prevent burning. Simply get out of the sun or wear clothing the moment your skin starts to turn light pink. That said, conventional guidance by the American Academy of Dermatology1 stresses the use of sunscreen, not only when lying on the beach but every single day, regardless of whether or skin pigmentation. Aside from promoting vitamin D deficiency, which has a long list of health consequences, sunscreen use may also be a source of toxic exposure.

hip fracture

Easy way to lower your risk of hip fractures up to 44%

Reducing the risk of hip fractures is easier than you might think, according to a Framingham Osteoporosis Study. You can enhance bone health by taking a vitamin you should be taking anyway: vitamin C.This finding comes out of a 17-year follow-up of the Framingham Osteoporosis Study.  And, the message is quite clear: those taking the highest amounts of vitamin C showed a hip fracture rate that was significantly lower than those taking the least of this powerful antioxidant. The threat of hip fractures get dramatically reduced with a simple change to lifestyle habits
