Resveratrol: Mystery and Reality, Galina N. Antonova M.D., Ph.D.

Medical research has demonstrated that antioxidants – a superfamily of molecules that inactivate free radicals – have beneficial effects. Atherosclerosis is major health problem in the USA and Europe. Its mortality is higher than death associated with cancer, lung disease, and HIV infection combined.

Radiation Coming Our Way,
What you can eat to beat nuclear plant fallout. Last Friday, Japan was hit with an 8.9-magnitude earthquake—the largest since the country began keeping records in the 19th century. It was followed by a tsunami that ripped through the country’s coastline, destroying virtually everything in sight. The quake damaged several nuclear reactors, leading to threats of harmful radioactive leaks and meltdowns. Because radioactivity is airborne, it can be transported for hundreds of miles beyond its origin. This air-borne radiation may take weeks or even months to reach our coasts, but reach us, it will. Radiation damages… Continue reading
