Rats fed GMO foods had inflamed prostates and stomachs, smaller livers, hearts, testicles and brains, damaged immune systems, and structural changes in the white blood cells making them more vulnerable to infection and disease compared to rats fed non-GMO food. Soon enough after the testing began, the thymus and spleen became damaged and the pancreas, intestines, stomachs and prostates became inflamed. Then, there was a significant proliferation of stomach and intestines cells upping the future risk of cancer. How long did it take for this process to hit full-swing? These results started appearing after a mere 10 days of feeding the rats with GMO food. But these deleterious effects also persisted 110 days after the diet was changed back to GMO-free. 110 days of a rat’s life is about the human equivalent of 10 years. Better quit all GMOs now…Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

There is a huge association between diet drinks and cardiovascular problems. Of course, scientists found the correlation very evident but the money-hungry soft-drink industry (that doesn’t give a rat’s you-know-what about your health) claims that the causation can’t be proven. So, diet drinkers have more heart trouble but no-one knows why… I know why: because they drink diet sodas! It doesn’t take causation to know that women who drink two or more diet drinks a day are 30% more likely to have a heart attack and 50% more likely to die from it than women who rarely touch diet drinks. Some of them drink diet because they think it is healthier for them than regular sugared drinks. Well, would you rather be shot to death or stabbed to death? - Because it is very near the same risk between drinking diet and regular sugared drinks. Either one helps you pack on pounds and become sick. Bottom line, man does not die, he kills himself.Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

What do you get when you have an autoimmune disease? If it attacks your neurons you get Parkinson’s disease. An attack on the pancreas brings Type I Diabetes; Celiac Disease when it attacks the intestines; and Multiple Sclerosis when it attacks the central nervous system. Most cells infected by fungi, virus, bacteria foreign protein or other pathogen will display pieces of the antigen that attack it on the outer cell surface. The immune system identifies these antigens as evil and must be destroyed – at all costs. T cells form, attack and kill these cells and, Viola! Autoimmune disease…  Now your body is attacking itself. Why is this happening to us with increasing intensity? I can name a few reasons: Low thyroids, GMO foods, Medications, Radiation, Vaccines, more Vaccines, food chemicals, environmental chemicals, plasticizers – to name a few…  Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

The supplement GABA is anti-excitatory in that it helps your brainwaves flow in calm rhythms. GABA enhances normal sleep cycles, improves blood pressure and can also be an effective pain killer for back pain and arthritis. GABA also stimulates the pituitary gland to secrete Human Growth Hormone (HGH) leading to weight loss and an increase in muscle tissue. GABA helps make endorphins for that sense of well-being after a good physical workout. GABA deficiencies cause: carbohydrate cravings, trembling, twitching, hyperventilation, flushing, tachycardia, palpitations, sweating, cold or clammy hands, paresthesia, chest pain or discomfort, restlessness, blurred vision, abnormal sense of smell, abnormal odors, lump in throat, butterflies in stomach, unusual allergies, anxiety, hypertension, cystitis, gastrointestinal disorders, tinnitus, and PMS. Interestingly, GABA reduces depression and anxiety and helps normalize cortisol levels best when taken with a probiotic.Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

What is more depressing than being depressed and relying on SSRI antidepressant drugs? How being pregnant on these nasties and consequently birthing a child with autism? Now that’s really sad. The California MIND Institute studied some 1,000 mother/child pairs to find that children with Aspergers were 3X more likely to have prenatal SSRI exposure than neurotypical children with the highest risk for developing Aspergers in the mothers taking SSRIs in the first trimester. Serotonin drug exposure in the mother affects early brain development. Placebos work just as well as SSRI drugs without the side effects of higher suicide risk, adverse health outcomes and fetal damage. Here’s a novel thought: Find the cause of the depression and fix it! It is not a lack of drugs causing depression.Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

A lesson in sugar: When you take in sugars, in about 20 minutes or so, blood glucose levels spike as the sugar floods the bloodstream. With this sudden spike in blood glucose comes the pancreas pumping out large amounts of the hormone insulin to help the cells take up the glucose.  Some of this glucose is immediately converted to energy but the excess is stored as fat for later use. Insulin works very hard to balance the blood sugar levels and the more sugar you take in, the more insulin your body produces. High levels of insulin are not healthy when extra insulin causes the body’s blood sugar to crash and the body now requires more sugar to balance out the insulin. Chronic exposure to high insulin levels causes cells go numb to insulin - a condition called insulin resistance which is a precursor to diabetes. In this case, the sugar in your blood has nowhere to go and blood sugar levels sky rocket. Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

Oil pulling can help your teeth and gums be healthy and even recover from disease. Commercial mouthwashes contain fluoride, alcohol, artificial flavors, chemical sweeteners and many other harmful additives that poison your body. Not so with oil pulling! Oil pulling has been around for thousands of years and can freshen the breath, prevent plaque and heal gingivitis. Oil pulling helps whiten the teeth, treat headaches and migraines, clears some acne cases, lessens asthma symptoms, and can even help diabetes. Taking just 5 minutes a day to swish some grape seed oil, sesame oil or coconut oil will literally wash away mouth bacteria while preventing gum inflammation. Bad bacteria residing in the mouth and gums affects overall health and have been implicated in a range of diseases from heart attack and dementia. Swish for 5 minutes minimum and then spit and brush your teeth.Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

Using Ritalin leads to a plethora of side effects including: increased blood pressure, elevated heart rate, higher body temperature, lowered alertness and suppressed appetite. Think taking Ritalin is a cake-walk? Try these additional side effects: cancer, increased suicidal thoughts and suicidal behavior, seizure disorder, angina, Tourette syndrome, heart attack, brain hemorrhage, hallucinations, liver failure, extreme personality changes, a 7X increase in sudden death and more way too much more. According to the CDC, 20% of high school students in the US have taken Ritalin or a similar prescription drug without a doctor’s prescription. Most of the kids who take these drugs without a prescription get them from family members and friends. I personally think that Ritalin and related drugs are a huge mistake in the first place.Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

There is a new looming crisis at hand – soaring food prices! Food prices have jumped almost 20% since December of 2013 – a mere 5 months. And, the experts are saying that it will probably get worse before it gets better – if it ever does get better. This blows the doors off of the dire USDA prediction of a whopping 3% rise in food prices for 2014. Food prices went up, but did your income increase at all? In the midst of glowing economic growth reports and fluffy unemployment numbers, did anyone factor in runaway inflation? A few reasons for this exorbitant rise in food prices are that California produces the most vegetables in the good old US of A and is going through the worst drought in its history, fuel prices are on the rise again – plus - the grand-total US cattle herd is also the smallest it has been since 1951. Time for some good old urban chickens and planter-box veggie gardens if you ask me.Read more Real Health Talk blogs>

Energy drinks are touted to improve energy, alertness, concentration, and athletic performance. These energy drinks can be gateways to other risky behaviors  – especially among teens and young adults – and can have serious health consequences, Energy drink sales in North America account for 36% of global sales, ringing in at some $20 billion in the US alone in 2013. With their frenetic lives, up to 50% of adolescents and young adults claim to regularly consume energy drinks as they seek to increase energy levels and to “stay-awake” while studying. Many energy drinks pack around 500mg of caffeine and don’t even have to label the amounts of this key ingredient even though they are some 5 times higher than what is found in one standard cup of coffee. Resultant caffeine toxicity from energy drinks is on the rise among adolescents as reported by poison centers. Read more Real Health Talk blogs>
