  • How Good Are Avocados for You?

    The nutritional benefits of guacamole extend beyond the nutrients in avocados. Avocados have been described as a “major dietary source of antioxidants.” While this may be true compared to many of the foods people usually eat, they aren’t necessarily anything to write home about when compared to other common fruits, as you can see at […]

  • The Best Source of Resveratrol

    Is there any benefit to resveratrol? If so, should we get it from wine, grapes, peanuts, or supplements? “Alcohol is a neurotoxin which can cause brain damage…[and] can cause cancer,” so perhaps the “consumption of alcohol…cannot be considered a healthy lifestyle choice” since it’s an addictive carcinogen.

    What role does diet and baby powder play in the development of fibroids and ovarian cancer?  If you randomly select a group of women and ultrasound their uterus, most of them have fibroid tumors by age 50—and by most, I mean more than 80 percent of black women and nearly 70 percent of white women. As you can see at 0:23 in my video Talcum […]

Back in 1980s, the Adventist Health Study found “strong protective relationships” against prostate cancer with increasing consumption of legumes, citrus, dried fruit, nuts, and tomatoes. In the 1990s, a […]

  • Benefits of Turmeric for Arsenic Exposure

    What happened when turmeric curcumin was put to the test to see if it could reverse DNA damage caused by arsenic exposure? Arsenic is a carcinogenic heavy metal, and the major mechanism of arsenic-related damage appears to be oxidative stress. It’s the arsenic-induced accumulation of free radicals that can kill off cells and damage our […]

  • How to Treat Endometriosis with Diet

    “Endometriosis is a major cause of disability and compromised quality of life in women and teenage girls.” It “is a chronic disease which is under-diagnosed, under-reported, and under-researched…[and for patients, it] can be a nightmare of misinformation, myths, taboos, lack of diagnosis, and problematic hit-and-miss treatments overlaid by a painful, chronic, stubborn disease.” Pain is […]
