Relationship Between Cholesterol And Cardiovascular Disease Not Clear-Cut

Strokes are caused when blood supply to the brain is interrupted for a prolonged period of time and may leave sufferers with long lasting disability. Strokes are also a leading cause of death. The most common type of stroke in the UK and US is known as ‘ischaemic’ stroke. Here, vessels supplying blood to the brain become blocked, starving the brain of blood. The other less common type of stroke is known as ‘haemorrhagic’ stroke, caused when blood vessels burst and bleed.

Over time, data on 192 patients who had suffered an ischaemic stroke was gathered. These patients were divided into two groups: one group of individuals who had no heart disease and another group who did. Then the researchers compared a variety of risk factors between the groups to see if there were any significant differences here. Older age was associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Also, high blood pressure was associated with a very enhanced risk. However, cholesterol levels had no association with risk. In other words, neither higher total cholesterol nor LDL-cholesterol was associated with an increased risk of heart disease, and higher HDL-cholesterol was not associated with lower risk. What do the authors of the study make of this finding? It’s difficult to say because, for whatever reason, they chose to not address it at all in their discussion. I suppose it’s possible that the authors are aware that cholesterol levels are not a particularly good predictor for heart disease, and didn’t comment because their results did not surprise them. Or maybe they didn’t want to draw attention to findings which are out of keeping with ‘conventional wisdom’ and are therefore ‘inexplicable’.

Are GMO Foods, Vaccines, and Big Pharma Producing an Infertile Generation?

The U.S. fertility rates are at all-time record lows. Are we watching the leading edge of a slowly moving tidal wave of infertility? I wasn’t sure what is really happening with human fertility until I took a hard look at the data and the science. I now believe that there is strong reason to be concerned about the emerging trend of infertility. What is causing the current generation of child-bearing aged adults to become infertile?

How the FDA Deceives You About Mercury Amalgams

How the FDA Deceives You About Mercury Amalgams

57 Percent of Americans Do Not Know Amalgam Contains Mercury!

Why exactly is the FDA so opposed to informing the public about the true nature of amalgam? The answer is simple: because the agency has been penetrated through the revolving door that’s so common in other industries. Just like Monsanto has penetrated the federal government’s regulatory agencies, amalgam profit centers have penetrated and effectively lobbied the FDA to remain complacent on this issue.

Ebola: WHO Turns To Experimental Drugs, But Not Proven Natural Remedies

Ebola: WHO Turns To Experimental Drugs, But Not Proven Natural Remedies

As the world starts looking to invest millions of dollars for ebola drugs, the Catch-22 of drug economics (no one will spend the exorbitant sums needed to run clinical trials if the product can’t be patented and turned into a huge money-maker) practically ensures that natural treatments will be ignored. But could some of our oldest natural antivirals be used at least to inhibit the transfer of the virus—or even cure it?

Silver has also showed great promise as an antiviral, in both attacking the virus and in inhibiting transmission. So far, silver has been tested on HIV and herpes. Silver has also been used to clear HPV warts; inhibit the replication of the hepatitis B virus; kill the H1N1 virus; fight ocular infection; and kill the tacaribe virus, which also causes hemorrhagic fever, as well as the bacteriophage viral strain. Since disinfecting contaminated environments is the most effective method of halting Ebola’s spread, silver could be a most potent weapon in the battle. But we don’t see the WHO getting behind anything natural, whether effective or not.

Your sense of smell exerts surprising influence over your thoughts, emotions, moods, memories, and behaviors. Aromatherapy allows you to harness the olfactory power of plants, using their essential oils to enhance your physical and emotional health.

Essential oils have been scientifically shown to be particularly helpful in treating stress, mood, sleep, pain, nausea, memory, and energy. A recent study revealed that humans can distinguish more than one trillion sensory stimuli, instead of 10,000 as previously thought. Scents can actually change your nervous system biochemistry.
