Could watermelon be the magic way out for muscle aches?

By Sandeep Godiyal, April 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Many athletes have developed sore muscles after performing vigorous exercises or doing a new workout. This is due to fatigue-inducing stress on your muscles. This causes small tears in the muscle, which the muscle tissues repair themselves and in the process become stronger. However, muscle ache is uncomfortable and stressful. New research has revealed that you don't have to go through the pain anymore, as there is a new cure to muscle aches. Researchers have discovered that watermelon...

By Jonathan Benson, April 1 2014
(NaturalNews) A Kansas City-area couple whose upscale home was illegally invaded by police in a SWAT-style raid back in 2012 is demanding justice, including access to the documents that allegedly justified the raid and $7 million in damages. Reports indicate that the Harte family of Leawood, Kansas, was literally held hostage at gunpoint by law enforcement goons who ravaged their house and tore apart hydroponic growing equipment that they falsely believed to be part of a nonexistent marijuana grow...

Overuse of brain scans for American headache sufferers costs $1 billion per year

By PF Louis, April 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Both CT (computerized tomography) scans and MRIs (magnetic resolution imagery) tend to be overused for headache sufferers to get good images of what's not right in the brain. They both do that well, but they both have their dangers. And they are both very expensive. From 2007 to 2010, there were over 51 million doctor visits for headaches, of which around half were migraine-related. A Michigan University Medical School study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, analyzed doctor visits...

Children actually think that food tastes better if it carries a major brand logo or an image of a popular cartoon character

By David Gutierrez, April 1 2014
(NaturalNews) Fast food companies don't pour all that money into marketing their products to children for nothing. Studies confirm that kids don't just have an emotional preference for branded food: they actually think it tastes better. In one study, conducted in 2007, children were presented with a choice between identical samples of baby carrots, chicken nuggets, French fries, hamburgers and milk. The nuggets, burgers and fries came from McDonald's, while the other foods did not, but the children...

IPCC's doom-and-gloom global warming apocalypse is political theater, not real science

By Mike Adams, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) The IPCC has just released its latest "Apocalypse Now" report(1), threatening all humankind with imminent self-destruction if industrial output of CO2 is not immediately and drastically curbed. The UN global government report concludes that global warming is "severe, pervasive and irreversible," a position which seems to be little more than a foregone death sentence for the human race, even if drastic changes are made right now. As head of a research laboratory myself -- I was the...

California lowers organic standards in face of historic drought

By L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) Organic farms in 53 out of 58 counties in California are set to produce "faked," cheapened organic meat and dairy products in the first quarter of 2014. In the face of a historic drought, California's organic standards have been cut in half. Instead of requiring livestock to graze on nutrient-rich grass for four months, the standards will be slashed to accommodate drought conditions. During the drought, livestock will only be required to graze for two months, allowing farmer's to...

New Monsanto non-GMO strains of produce are a ploy to confuse public between hybrid and GMO

By S. D. Wells, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) The term hybrid, which you'll often see in seed catalogs, refers to a plant variety developed through specific, controlled cross-breeding between two parent plants. Usually, these are naturally compatible within the same species. This is the kind of hybridization that takes place naturally in the wild. All plant breeders who respect Mother Nature simply "steer the process" to control the outcome. This not a GMO; in other words, this normal hybrid would not be the result of genetic ...

Environmental group seeks ban on toxic mercury used in dental amalgam fillings

By Ethan A. Huff, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) The dangers associated with mercury-based dental fillings are not isolated to just the individuals who receive them, says a new study recently published by the environmental justice group BAN Toxics (BT). Like its name implies, BT is pushing for a ban on mercury use in dentistry due to persistent mercury vapors that threaten not only patients but also dentists, dental assistants, and dental students, all of whom are constantly exposed to mercury-polluted air. Entitled "What is in...

Nearly all EU scientists attacking new restrictions on toxic chemicals have financial ties to chemical industries

By Rebecca Winters, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) Following a bid to place tougher EU regulations on chemicals that act as hormone-altering endocrine disruptors, 18 scientists have published an editorial in 14 scientific journals ludicrously criticizing the move to protect consumers from these potentially harmful ingredients. The comments came in reaction to a leaked Environment Directorate-General draft recommending a precautionary approach that could ultimately lead to an outright ban on some known endocrine disruptors in products...

Canadian farmers reject GM apples

By Julie Wilson , March 19 2014
(NaturalNews) Opposition to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and demand for cleaner, healthier food is escalating around the globe, and Canada is no exception. Apple farmers in Nova Scotia, Canada, are concerned about a new kind of genetically modified apple being introduced in the nation's food supply, as reported by The Chronicle Herald. Controversy over the new GM apples arose after another apple grower located in Summerland, B.C., applied for a permit to harvest and sell the mutant fruit...

World Health Organization releases 2012 air pollution-related death numbers, says problem "far greater than previously thought"

By Antonia, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released a report citing that air pollution was the cause for over 7 million heart disease, respiratory disease, and cancer-related deaths in 2012, one-third of which were from developing Asian countries. Shockingly, the number is up significantly from just four years prior: in 2008, the number of air pollution-related deaths released by WHO were 3.2 million.

By L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, March 28 2014
(NaturalNews) A physician from Decatur, Alabama, is frustrated with new Affordable Care Act provisions that have added multiple thousands of new medical codes that are flat out wasting his time. He's watched angered colleagues go into early retirement because of the confusion. He's now unable to see new patients due to all the unnecessary administrative work that is destroying doctor-to-patient relationships. In a letter written to US Representative Mo Brooks, Dr. Marlin Gill wrote firmly that...

(NaturalNews) An annual report by England's chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, highlights the fact that obesity rates are on the rise. Obesity significantly increases the risk of developing a whole host of chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and cancer. Despite the health implications, two-thirds of adults in the UK are now overweight or obese, and one-third of children. These numbers are approximately double those seen in the 1990s. The...

Birds don't just disperse seeds when they eat fruits - They can also spread seeds stuck to the mud of their feet

By David Gutierrez, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) Due to their ability to traverse vast distances in short periods of time, birds are among the most effective of all animal seed dispersers. Perhaps the most well-known method by which birds disperse seeds is through eating juicy fruits, such as berries. The bird digests the fleshy part of the fruit and then defecates the seeds out at a different location far from the parent tree. Many plants have evolved highly specialized methods to encourage birds to eat their fruits for just this...

Californium could provide a safer way to dispose of nuclear waste

By L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, March 31 2014
(NaturalNews) Disposing nuclear waste is tricky business; governments today are unsure of how to properly manage and store the toxic byproducts. The radioactive waste just can't be scraped into the garbage and tossed out in a landfill. At minimum, radioactive waste must be sealed in airtight steel or concrete containers and buried deep within the earth. It may even take tens of thousands of years for the waste to break down into less dangerous isotopes. Government unsure how to manage radioactive...

Let's cover five indisputable facts about governments, radar and aircraft: Fact #1) Every modern nation tracks air traffic with military radar systems All the key nations involved in Malaysia Airlines...

Diet soda, aspartame linked to premature deaths in women

By Mike Adams, March 30 2014
(NaturalNews) A decade-long study of 60,000 women has confirmed that drinking diet soda sweetened with aspartame is linked with a 30 percent increase in heart attack risk and a 50 percent increase in death risk. The findings, presented at the American College of Cardiology(1), have already been partially swept under the rug with the false explanation that diet drinks don't necessarily cause these risks but are instead merely correlated with them. "Women who toss back too many diet sodas may be...

Much-touted CDC study claiming obesity has plummeted in preschoolers found to be junk science propaganda

By L.J. Devon, Staff Writer, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Who can trust the American Medical Association and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control -- two institutions engaged in suppressing self-empowered natural healing? These institutions work by misinforming the public through their vast media influence and control. It's no surprise that a new claim projected by the CDC and promoted by the AMA is merely just political propaganda based on junk science. The report, published in late February in the Journal of the American Medical Association...

Borage oil has incredible anti-inflammatory properties and is great for your skin

By P. Simard, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) The borage plant is from the Boraginaceae family, and it mainly grows in the Mediterranean region, although it's also cultivated in Europe and the United States. Apparently, the Romans would drink borage tea combined with wine before going to battle, as they believed that it would give them inner strength. Its leaves are edible, and in Italy you'll sometimes find it as a side dish, but it's specifically when transformed into borage oil that it can work wonders for your health. Generally...

Emmanuel Giboulot owns and operates an organic vineyard in eastern France where he produces organic and biodynamic vines. A biodynamic farm functions as a whole organism and relies on both organic biological practices and metaphysical practices. Farmers who use this method consider...

U.S. treating meat with ammonia, bleach and antibiotics to kill the '24-hour sickness'

By S. D. Wells, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Modern "food" science, processed food and the chemical medicine industry all thrive on one theory: If something doesn't make you sick or kill you within 24 hours, then it's "safe." This is simply not true. If you eat some fast food and get deathly sick 48 hours later, from food poisoning, E. coli, Salmonella or artificial hormone overload, it is becoming increasingly difficult to sue a company, corporation or even government entity that is responsible for controlling, manufacturing...

Woman loses 70 pounds, keeps it off for 7 years: says fruits and vegetables key to maintenance success

By Antonia, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles analyzed over three dozen long-term diet studies and found that about two-thirds of dieters regained more weight than they lost within four or five years after they lost it. However, one woman is giving that statistic a run for its money. She lost 70 pounds in 2007 and has successfully managed to keep the weight off for over seven years.

The fear of quitting smoking has you hooked - eliminate it!

By S. D. Wells, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) The greatest fear of quitting smoking is the fear of the feelings of anxiety, depression and overall "crankiness" from the withdrawals of nicotine. Any smoker who has tried to quit in the past knows that this is a very tough period to go through, especially if stressful events happen on top of it all. The fear of that anxiety and nervousness "never ending" can last for hours, days and even weeks, seemingly having no "light at the end of the tunnel" and sending the new "non-smoker...

Curing diabetes: A natural approach

By Mayimina, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Diabetes is a disease in which the body is either unable to produce enough insulin or is unable to process the insulin that is produced. This causes increased levels of glucose in the body, putting additional strain on the body's organs. The typical treatment for diabetes is for a physician to prescribe various medications in order to control the disease. The purpose of these medications is often twofold: to add insulin to the body in order to better manage the glucose and to counteract...

Tennesee State University forcing students to wear location-tracking ID badges

By J. D. Heyes, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Officials at Tennessee State University have implemented new rules to force students to carry ID badges that will allow them to be tracked, citing safety and security concerns following a series of criminal acts on campus. According to local reports, it is already difficult for students to navigate the campus without identification, but the tracking element inherent in the new policy is unnerving to some. "I use it going to the cafeteria, going in and out of my dorm and driving...

Taking artificial vitamin supplements? Think again. Their antioxidant component scientifically proven to cause cancer

By Arpana Sagwal Chaudhary, Ph.D., March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) It is deeply rooted in our psyche that antioxidants help prevent cancer, and the multi-billion-dollar food supplement industry has exploited this belief for years. One reason why antioxidants are touted to be beneficial is because they scavenge upon free radicals. The fact is, these free radicals are indeed harmful, damage cells and DNA, and cause early aging and cancer. The larger question here is what type of antioxidants are proven to be bad? The antioxidants in question here...

The three smallest bones in the human body are found in your ear, where they vibrate in response to sound

By David Gutierrez, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) The three smallest bones in your body are all found inside your ear, and you would be completely deaf without them. Known formally as the malleus, incus and stapes (and informally as the hammer, anvil and stirrup, after their approximate shapes), all three of these tiny bones could fit easily on a penny at the same time. They sit in the middle ear, between the external structures of the outer ear and the fluid-filled cochlea, which sends signals directly to the brain. Together, these...

Kelp contains a fiber that slows fat intake in the body more effectively than anti-obesity drugs

By David Gutierrez, March 29 2014
(NaturalNews) Kelp, a variety of sea vegetable, is common in many kinds of Asian cuisine. Its high fiber content, high iodine content and fast rate of growth have already made it a food of interest to researchers working to develop food sources to combat malnutrition around the world. But kelp may also work wonders in the overfed parts of the world, as one of its fibers is a more effective anti-obesity agent than any over-the-counter weight-loss drug. The fiber, known as alginate, is already...

Has a plague already arrived? 205 Americans die each day after acquiring superbug hospital infections

By Mike Adams, March 28 2014
(NaturalNews) If a jumbo jet crashed into the ocean every single day, it would roughly equal the number of Americans who die each day following superbug infections acquired at U.S. hospitals. Far from being some hyped-up scare story, that's actually the conclusion of none other than the CDC, which has now publicly warned that 1 in 25 hospital patients gets infected and tens of thousands die each year. "On any given day, 1 in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection...

Vegetarian-fed chickens - are these bragging rights or just screwed up food politics?

By S. D. Wells, March 28 2014
(NaturalNews) Ok, who cares if your eggs come from chickens that are fed vegetarian feed? What are the other choices besides insects, bugs, worms, etc.? Are you feeding them chicken? What about cow, pig and turkey? Maybe chickens are fed farm-raised fish, but last I checked, they don't like that. In a country where nearly every single fast food burger, chicken sandwich and fish "filet" comes from an animal living in a confined animal feeding operation being fed GMOs, you can be sure that vegetables...

By Dr. Megan Heimer, NHE, J.D, N.D., March 28 2014
(NaturalNews) It wasn't long after The New York Time's (NYT) published an opinion piece calling for the elimination of vaccine exemptions that parents took to the internet to voice their concerns and frustrations with a government and healthcare community that sees no problem infringing upon one's right to opt out. Dr. Kristen Feemster (a pediatric infectious disease Physician) in her NYT article urged the curtailment of philosophical and religious exemptions for the protection of those who can't...

Most products containing 'soy protein' or 'texturized vegetable protein' are made using the toxic chemical hexane

By David Gutierrez, March 28 2014
(NaturalNews) Soy protein is a common ingredient not just in health foods but also in any food where a cheap source of protein is needed. Texturized vegetable protein, made with soy, is actually used to bulk up hamburgers in schools and prisons. To make concentrated soy protein, however, the fat must first be removed from soy beans. This is commonly achieved by bathing the soy beans or soy flour in hexane, a byproduct of gas refining and grain processing. Hexane is a regulated air pollutant...

Like humans, mushrooms and algae generate vitamin D when exposed to sunlight

By David Gutierrez, March 28 2014
(NaturalNews) Although humans cannot produce energy from sunlight the way plants can, we do actually need sunlight to produce one essential nutrient, vitamin D. The human body can also use vitamin D that it gets from its diet -- but like the sugars found in plants, the ultimate source of dietary vitamin D is also sunlight. All vitamin D on planet Earth at one point was produced by a living creature in conjunction with sunlight. For example, fatty fish are high in vitamin D because they feed...
