* The Forbidden Food You Should Never Stop Eating
You've been told it's bad for you and causes heart disease, but new research suggests those who eat the most of this food weigh the least. And when you replace it with this - you actually promote heart disease, diabetes and a bulging waistline.
> [It's saturated fat. Time to Put Ancel Keys' Theory to Rest. Keys based his theory on a study of six countries, in which higher saturated fat intake equated to higher rates of heart disease. However, he conveniently ignored data from 16 other countries that did not fit his theory. Had he chosen a different set of countries, the data would have shown that increasing the percent of calories from fat reduces the number of deaths from coronary heart disease. And, as illustrated in the featured article, when you include all 22 countries for which data was available at the time of his study, you find that those who consume the highest percentage of saturated fat have the lowest risk of heart disease.]
* What You Don't Know About Flavor Enhancers Can Harm You
Lab-created flavor enhancers are in many popular processed foods, but deception abounds and you won't find them listed on the label.
> [There are many reasons why you're better off choosing natural whole foods in lieu of processed alternatives, but one of the primary ones is that junk foods contain additives that increase your toxic load, which in turn may increase your tendency to develop cancer. Embryonic Kidney Cells from Aborted Baby are Used to Create Tastier Junk Foods. Senomyx boasts that they have "discovered or in-licensed many of the key receptors that mediate taste in humans." But what they don't state so plainly is that they used human embryonic kidney cells (HEK 293) taken from an electively aborted fetus in their product testing. When this news leaked, Campbell soup responded to an outraged public by severing all ties with Senomyx. However, PepsiCo has maintained their relationship with the company, saying the collaboration is necessary for creating low-calorie, tasty products for their consumers.]

* The Widely Prescribed Drug that's No Better than a Placebo
It's meant to help calm your nerves - but in a new study, even some of the most potent drugs are no different than a sugar pill in terms of the relief they provide. My advice: opt for these techniques, supplements and simple steps instead.

* Banned for Pets and Farm Animals, but Okay for You and Your Children?
Why would a toxic substance be safe to place into your mouth when it's a known neurotoxin, a workplace hazard, and an environmental catastrophe?
> [Why Do Half of All Dentists Still Use Mercury Amalgam? The alternatives to amalgam are comparably priced – or even less expensive. Amalgams cost more than glass ionomers, which can be applied via a mercury-free technique called Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART). ART does not require drilling; only hand instruments, and is virtually painless. Amalgam also cost the same as composite fillings (also called resin) for smaller cavities, although composite can cost a few bucks more for large cavities. But when you add the horrid environmental and health catastrophe caused by amalgam, of course, amalgam's cost to society is much higher. The answer is: Profits! Amalgams are quick and easy. Dentists make more money per chair per day implanting mercury. For factory-style dentistry, where the teeth represent dollar signs instead of part of a human being, dentists drill, fill, and bill.]

Half these experts will put a toxin near your brain that not only endangers your neurological and reproductive health, it hinders your ability to manufacture an important antioxidant detoxifier designed to eliminate it from your system.
> [Mercury fillings are the problem. For a complete description of how to safely remove mercury amalgam, see this PDF created by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).

* The Mineral That Helps Fight Fatigue, Stress, Pain, Cancer, and Wrinkles, Too
Many people, especially as they age, may find themselves deficient in this critical mineral that's involved with numerous functions in your body, including detox, joint health, insulin function, and energy production. Plus, your ability to get enough in your food may be limited...
> [It's sulfur. Connective tissue and cartilage contain proteins with flexible sulfur bonds, giving the structure its flexibility. With age, the flexible tissues in your body tend to lose their elasticity, leading to sagging and wrinkling of skin, stiff muscles and painful joints. A shortage of sulfur likely contributes to these age-related problems. The best way to obtain sulfur is through your diet. Sulfur is derived almost exclusively from dietary protein, such as fish and high-quality beef and poultry. Those who abstain from animal protein are placing themselves at far greater risk of sulfur deficiency. Other dietary sources that contain small amounts of sulfur include: Organic pastured eggs; Legumes; Garlic; Onion; Brussel sprouts; Asparagus; Kale; Wheat germ; MSM, an Organic Form of Sulfur. Methylsulfonylmethane, commonly known by its acronym, MSM, is not a drug. It's an organic form of sulfur and a potent antioxidant, naturally found in many plants.]

* This One Thing Is the Highest Risk for Diabetes
If you neglect to regularly do this it can upset your body's ability to properly regulate blood sugar in a matter of days.
> [If you regularly consume sugars and grains, your blood sugar spikes will lead to increased insulin resistance, which leads to increased fat storage. The extra fat then produces more leptin. The problem arises when your leptin levels become chronically elevated. At this point, you become leptin resistant—your body can no longer "hear" the hormonal signals telling your brain you're full and should stop eating. - Vigorous Exercise is the "Silver Bullet" in Diabetes Treatment. - If you follow the misguided belief that diabetes is a disease of blood sugar, you are likely destined for premature death. Taking insulin is one of the WORST things you can do, as it will actually make your insulin and leptin resistance worse over time. Dr. Rosedale, an expert on leptin physiology and one of my early mentors in this area, developed the appropriate acronym -- D.I.E. -- to illustrate what's happening in conventional diabetic treatment: Doctor Induced Exacerbation. Yes, most doctors make diabetes worse and accelerate the death process.]

* Could THIS Be the Hidden Factor Behind Obesity, Heart Disease, and Chronic Fatigue?
Deficiencies of this mineral are common but not talked about much. But it's crucial for preventing cardiovascular disease, maintaining a healthy weight, detoxification, and supporting your cells' energy factories. Are YOU getting enough?
> [Dr. Seneff thinks Heart disease is a cholesterol deficiency problem, and in particular a cholesterol sulfate deficiency problem. When you expose your skin to sunshine, your skin synthesizes vitamin D3 sulfate. This form of vitamin D is water soluble, unlike oral vitamin D3 supplements, which is unsulfated. Skin also produces huge amounts of cholesterol sulfate, which is also water soluble and provides a healthy barrier against bacteria and other potentially disease-causing pathogens that might otherwise enter your body through your skin. When you're deficient in cholesterol sulfate, your muscle and fat cells become more prone to damage. Excess fat accumulates as damage increases. - Sulfate is Essential for Babies. Colostrum contains high levels of sulfur, even more than the breast milk itself.     Sulfur is derived almost exclusively from dietary protein, such as fish and meat.]

The odds are greater than 1 in 3 you'll get this disease - so pay close attention.
> [As Dr. Whitaker says in the film, when you graciously donate to the American Cancer Society, you are perpetuating a failure. The ACS is in fact an impediment to advances in cancer therapy, and have no interest in really finding a cure—especially not a cure that doesn't cost an absolute fortune. Today, there are a number of alternative cancer treatments that are vehemently suppressed and opposed. For example, dichloroacetic acid, known as DCA also appears to have remarkable potential as a cancer treatment. The reason it's not available as an approved treatment for cancer is because it costs merely pennies a day, so no drug company wants to touch it. "The National Cancer Program is a bunch of sh*t."

This non-toxic, inexpensive prescription drug has shown promise in helping your body resolve numerous diseases including cancer.
> [Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) is one of those rare exceptions that may hold the promise of helping millions of people with cancer and autoimmune disease. CAUTION: Here are Important LDN Points to Consider if You Use It. Avoid slow-release (SR) or timed-release naltrexone. You want to be sure the LDN you receive is in unaltered form that allows you to receive the full dose quickly. Slow-release formulas may not give you the full therapeutic effects. Be aware of inactive fillers. Part of the LDN capsule will contain a "neutral" filler material, however there is some evidence to suggest that calcium carbonate as a filler could interfere with the absorption of LDN. So to be on the safe side, avoid LDN capsules that contain calcium carbonate fillers.]

It destroys your body's ability to keep track of satiety, promotes a heavy profile and doubles your obesity risk. And it's highly addictive... Now it's sneaking into your system through a bizarre new entry point, without you buying, choosing, or wanting it.
> [The artificial sweetener sucralose (Splenda) is a widespread contaminant in waste water, surface water, and ground water. Sucralose Destroys Healthy Bacteria. If you're determined to sweeten your foods and beverages, I urge you to consider using stevia extract—a safe and natural sweet herb. Avoid stevia-based sweeteners like Truvia and PureVia however, as these do not contain the whole stevia plant, which may compromise its safety.]
* Add This Seasoning to Your Food Daily - Despite What Your Doctor Says
Despite What Your Doctor Says - Doctors almost universally warn against this seasoning that can protect your heart - though 25 years of solid research proves it's a medical myth.

> [Salt is an Essential Nutrient. In 1997, the DASH-sodium study was conducted to determine whether or not a low-salt diet would control hypertension. The DASH diet consists largely of fresh vegetables and fruits, lean protein, whole grains, and low-fat dairy, and is very low in salt. But it's ALSO low in sugar/fructose. So, while people on DASH diets do show reduced hypertension, the reason for this is not the reduction in salt, but the reduction in fructose from sugar etc.]
