The largest study of its kind, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, finds that people who eat a handful of nuts every day live longer than those who do not eat them at all.
In this new study, the researchers examined data on 76,464 women between 1980 and 2010 who took part in the Nurses’ Health Study, and on 42,498 men from 1986 to 2010 who took part in the Health Professionals’ Follow-up Study.
First author Dr. Ying Bao, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, explains what they found:
Today brings awareness to the pandemic that is diabetes. It affects over 350 million individuals worldwide but that number is much larger when you take in consideration the number of families, spouses, and children that it affects when someone they know has diabetes.
Diabetes awareness should not only be recognized today or just the month of November (Diabetes Month). We should be aware (fully aware) of this devastating disease everyday. It is spreading like wildfire and will kill more people than ALL the wars in human history if it is not stopped.
You have the power to make a change… this power is through your purchasing dollars. Say NO to processed, junk, poisonous foods that line the grocery store shelves. Stop listening to the profit driven commercial messages on TV that promotes foods that are “healthy” that are really NOT. Do your own digging and find out the truth about REAL nutrition and how it can STOP diabetes. More medication is NOT the answer.
Also don’t rely on your government or other related “health” agencies to relay credible information to you. Their agenda has no concern for your health but rather $$$ and how to make more.
“You are responsible for you”
Get informed. Make the necessary changes. Improve your health/life. Help others do the same.

Ginseng has been a prized medicinal root for thousands of years. Due to the numerous ginseng benefits, the herb is often considered a ‘cure-all’. From increasing energy levels and improving memory, to boosting sex drive and encouraging vascular health—this is truly a healing plant worth talking about.
As reported by our friends at NaturalNews, not all “ginsengs” are created equal. Generally, when we speak of the ginseng plant in research studies, we are talking about Panax Ginseng. While there are others—Siberian, Korean Red and Korean White—Panax is the most well-researched and most frequently discussed. Still, some herbalists believe Siberian ginseng is closely related enough and an adaptogen, delivering many of the same benefits of its more deeply researched cousin.
What if someone were to tell you that a chemical (MSG) added to food could cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children’s nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties? What if there was scientific evidence that these chemicals could permanently damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones so that later in life your child might have endocrine problems? How would you feel?
