Good Reason to Take in Vitamin Supplements

3ca7f37-300x203Many people think that consuming well balanced diet gives all the vitamins and proteins required for a good health. In normal circumstances, yes this is the case, but in fact there are several reasons why you should have vitamin and nutritional supplements to cope with living today. Consuming vitamin supplements when necessary is a good technique of optimizing your dietary sources of nutrients, providing you follow proper instructions on the product labels.

Following are some of the circumstances when you may require supplements:

1. Poor Digestion

Even when you intake good food, incompetent digestion could restrict your body’s uptake of vitamins. Some ordinary causes of incompetent digestion are not chewing healthy enough and eating very fast. Both of these result in larger than usual food element size, too large to permit full action of digestive enzymes. Many people with dentures are not capable to chew as powerfully as those with a full set of real teeth.

New Government Report has Major Concerns Regarding GMO Foods

by www.mercola.com

The National Research Council panel of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that more work needs to be done to ensure that genetically engineered salmon, corn and other organisms do not taint the food supply or wipe out other species.

Scientists have been trying to find newer technologies that could slow down or completely stop the movement of genetically engineered species, or the spread of their genes. According to the panel, these methods of ‘bioconfinement’ are still in the early research stages, especially the new roducts deemed hazardous, and show no complete guarantee that they can be kept under control.

U.S. Government Influenced by Sugar Industry

by www.mercola.com

The Bush administration has been putting the interests of businesses, particularly the sugar industry, ahead of the global fight against obesity.

Since 1990, successive U.S. governments have blocked the World Health Organization’s (WHO) call for action to reduce the national recommendation of sugar consumption from 25 percent to 10 percent. The Bush administration, which receives millions of dollars in funding from the sugar industry, argues that there is little evidence to prove that consuming too much sugar is a direct cause of obesity. The president believes fighting fat is a matter of the individual, not the state, and opposes WHO’s recommendation to reduce sugar consumption to 10 percent.

Food is your Medicine – Not Supplements

Beware – Food is Your Medicine, Not Supplements

Despite the known health benefits of folate, researchers say caution is needed in regard to folate supplements.

Folate in its true natural form can be obtained from fresh vegetables, but it can also be found in its synthetic form in supplements and processed foods. This form, called pteroylmonoglutamate (PGA), does not occur in nature and is both cheap and stable–unlike most native forms of the vitamin.

An Illusion that Keeps Us Sick

by Teresa Tsalaky

The myth that the doctor’s medicine is best

Let’s say you’ve decided you’re willing to take responsibility for your health. Now it’s time to take action, right? Well, not quite. First, there’s an illusion that you must thoroughly dismantle if you want to eliminate the biggest roadblock on the path back to health. This illusion is deeply ingrained. It’s so deeply ingrained in the American psyche, that it sounds crazy to argue that it’s a lie, a myth.

Miracle in a Wisconsin School

APPLETON, Wisconsin —

A revolution has occurred. It’s taken place in the Central Alternative High School. The kids now behave. The hallways aren’t frantic. Even the teachers are happy.

The school used to be out of control. Kids packed weapons. Discipline problems swamped the principal’s office. But not since 1997. What happened? Did they line every inch of space with cops? Did they spray valium gas in the classrooms? Did they install metal detectors in the bathrooms? Did they build holding cells in the gym? Afraid not. In 1997, a private group called Natural Ovens began installing a healthy lunch program.

Organics: The Blurred Vision of ABC’s 20/20

by J. Robert Hatherill, Ph.D., and Jeff Nelson

A recent segment of ABC’s 20/20, entitled “How Good is Organic Food?” grossly misrepresented the safety and value of organically grown food crops. According to the 20/20 show that aired on February 4, 2000, commercially grown food is superior to organically grown produce because organic food has higher concentrations of bacteria and is “dangerous,” and because organic farmers waste land and resources compared to commercial growers.
