Bottom Line
The Superfood of the Century

What would you guess? Something intense like barley greens? Chlorella? Spirulina?

Nope. One of the biggest superfoods is… nuts.

There are many different health benefits nuts offer. And different nuts have different benefits.

For example, there’s a particular nut that’s been linked to reduced risk for diabetes. Another nut slows the progression of a serious eye disease by 25%. And yet another nut that helps curb cholesterol levels.

For a list of 8 different nuts and their benefits, I recommend you read this article. Learn more here.

Coconut Oil Has Dental Benefits?

Coconut oil is amazing stuff.

It supports brain health. It fights fungus. It moisturizes skin and hair.

Now a new study shows it also fights tooth decay. It does this by attacking the bacteria that causes it. In other words, it is also anti-bacterial. This includes streptococcus.

This short article includes links to more information showing this and many other benefits of coconut oil. I recommend you look through it.

Hidden Cause of Pain

There is a cause of pain that few people know about.

Ready? The cause is not enough sleep. A prime example of this is fibromyalgia. But other types of pain are also affected.

Research in Great Britain uncovered the fact that poor or not enough sleep is the strongest predictor for pain. This was true in adults over 50.

And pain was not the only result of poor sleep. It also:

  • Increased risk of heart disease and cancer.
  • Damaged brain health.
  • Interfered with blood sugar metabolism.
  • Contributed to premature aging.
  • Increased the risk of dying from any cause.

There are three factors that determine how good your sleep is. Learn about these and also get tips on how you can sleep better in this article.

Do You Chew Gum? If So, You Better Read This

Most gum is toxic.

There are a variety of reasons for this. Among the most obvious is that most gum has aspartame in it. This is even true of gums that aren’t sold as “sugar-free.”

You probably already know that aspartame (Nutrisweet®) is poison. You may not know that it is about to get a name change. Soon it will be called AminoSweet.

There are more health complaints about this chemical than all other food additives. These include seizures, blindness and death.

It’s bad enough when you swallow this stuff. But as it turns out, it is even worse when you chew it. That’s why it’s presence in gum is so dangerous.

Here is an article that gives you more info, including leading brands of gum that contain this toxin. Learn more in here.

Al Sears
The Real Reason She Ignores You?

Pesticides and herbicides are toxic.

Yes, I know that seems obvious. But how that toxic effect works is somewhat surprising.

A recent study showed that endocrine-disrupting chemicals can have very long term effects. And some of the most disruptive of these are agricultural chemicals.

The study looked at the effects of a fungicide on rats. They found that females avoided males who were exposed. This fungicide is known to disrupt male hormones.

More startling, the offspring of these exposed males were also avoided by females. This happened for 3 generations. That means not only did it affect attractiveness in the exposed male, but also in his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


Sadly in modern times we’ve all been exposed to these chemicals. But how do you deal with this exposure? Dr. Al Sears has some ideas about this. You can get the details here.

P.S. – If you are male and have noticed a drop in libido, there are herbs that can help. You can learn more about these herbs here.

All the best to you for your health and happiness,
