British doctors start prescribing books to help treat depression, anxiety and other disorders
Under a new program that launched in June by Britain’s National Health Service, primary care physicians may recommend specific titles to patients diagnosed with mild to moderate depression.

“Bibliotherapy” is based in part on research by the Welsh psychiatrist, Dr. Neil Frude, who noticed that some of his patients had begun reading about their mental health conditions while awaiting treatment – and some of the self-help books appeared to help.


But researchers have found that some self-help books read under a therapist’s supervision are about as effective for treating depression as individual or group therapy.

Contrary to popular belief, lard is an incredible healthy fat.
http://www.pvnutritionaltherapy.com/seven-reasons-why-you-should-eat-lard/

In fact, it’s the second richest dietary source of vitamin D next to cod liver oil. Lard from pastured pigs contains anywhere from 500 – 1000 IU vitamin D per tablespoon based on the pig’s diet and exposure to sunlight. This is why finding lard from pastured pigs is essential (see #5 below).

Coffee and Cigarettes May Protect Against Liver Disease
In a new study from Norway published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, both coffee consumption and cigarette smoking are shown to potentially protect against primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). This is a chronic liver disease caused by chronic inflammation of the bile ducts.

While PSC is not a common disease, it is a severe condition affecting mostly young adults (30-40 years), and with a high risk of associated cancer of the bile ducts.

A new study has found a link between higher chocolate consumption and lower body fat levels.
http://www.gizmag.com/higher-chocolate-consumption-less-fat/29711/

The study estimated total fat deposits through body mass index, waist circumference and body fat percentage, which was measured by skinfolds and bioelectrical impedance analysis. Lower levels of total and central fat deposits were witnessed in participants with higher chocolate intake, regardless of age, sex, sexual maturation, total energy intake, physical activity and intake of saturated fats, fruits, vegetables, tea and coffee.

The researchers suggest the results could be partly due to catechins, a type of flavonoid that chocolate is especially rich in that boasts multiple health benefits and influences cortisol production and insulin sensitivity in the body. “They have important antioxidant, antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory and antihypertensive effects and can help prevent ischemic heart disease," explains Magdalena Cuenca-García who was the principle author of the study.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/health/438600/Eating-fat-is-good-for-you-Doctors-change-their-minds-after-40-years

Leading British Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra says the obsession with a low-fat diet has “paradoxically increased” the risk of heart disease.

Other experts have added their voices to his controversial call to end 40 years of advice to cut saturated fat – which has been described as “the greatest medical error of our time”.

They claim the guidance has left millions of people at risk of developing cardiovascular ­disease and “led to the over-medication of millions of people with statins”.

Saturated fat has been demonised since the 1970s when a landmark study found a link between coronary heart disease and total ­cholesterol, which correlated with the percentage of calories provided by saturated fat.

“But correlation is not causation. Nevertheless, we were advised to cut fat intake to 30 per cent of total energy and a fall in saturated fat to 10 per cent.”


Time to end the war against saturated fat
http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-saturated-fat-20131022,0,2193813.story#ixzz2p4bUZA7D

The British Medical Journal has issued a clarion call to all who want to ward off heart disease: Forget the statins and bring back the bacon (or at least the full-fat yogurt). Saturated fat is not the widow-maker it's been made out to be, writes British cardiologist Aseem Malhotra in a stinging "Observations" column in the BMJ: The more likely culprits are empty carbs and added sugar.

Virtually all the truths about preventing heart attacks that physicians and patients have held dear for more than a generation are wrong and need to be abandoned, Malhotra writes. He musters a passel of recent research that suggests that the "obsession" with lowering a patients' total cholesterol with statins, and a public health message that has made all sources of saturated fat verboten to the health-conscious, have failed to reduce heart disease.

After the Framingham Heart Study showed a correlation between total cholesterol and risk for coronary artery disease in the early 1970s, patients at risk for heart disease were urged to swear off red meat, school lunchrooms shifted to fat-free and low-fat milk, and a food industry eager to please consumers cutting their fat intake rushed to boost the flavor of their new fat-free offerings with added sugar (and, of course, with trans-fats).

The result is a rate of obesity that has "rocketed" upward, writes Malhotra. And, despite a generation of patients taking statins (and enduring their common side effects), the trends in cardiovascular disease have not demonstrably budged.

The Grain That Damages The Human Brain
With increasing recognition among medical professionals and the lay public alike that the health of gut and brain are intimately connected (i.e. the 'gut-brain' axis), the concept that gluten-containing grains can damage the human brain is beginning to be taken more seriously.

Australian doctors enrolled 50 patients in a trial to see if garlic supplements could help those whose blood pressure was high, despite medication.

Those given four capsules of garlic extract a day had lower blood pressure than those on placebo, they report in scientific journal Maturitas.

http://www.naturalnews.com/025478.html#
The antifungal and antimicrobial properties of garlic help keep candida at bay. Yeast and garlic simply can't coexist, so regular garlic intake is a highly effective method for controlling candida. Garlic is also known for improving immune system function, which can further help your body fight off candida naturally.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/capital-life/in-the-kitchen/5186035/Potatoes-new-villian-in-fat-epidemic
A long-running Harvard University study has found that daily consumption of an extra serving of spuds – french fried, sliced into crispy chippies, mashed with butter and garlic, or simply boiled or baked – caused more weight gain than downing an extra can of sugary drink or eating an extra helping of red or processed meats.

After tracking the diet and lifestyle of more than 120,000 people from around the United States for at least 12 years, researchers calculated that participants gained about 360 grams a year. Their findings were published in the New England Journal of Medicine this week.

The United Nations declared 2008 the International Year of the Potato, praising it as a good source of vitamin C, several B vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium.

But when the Harvard team examined the potato's role in the modern diet, they found that people who ate an extra serving of french fries every day gained an average of 1.5 kilograms over a four-year period. Those who munched on an extra serving of potato chips daily gained an average of 770g every four years, and an extra serving of potatoes prepared in any non-chip form was found to contribute to an average weight gain of 590g over four years.

Study co-author Walter Willett said that, because potatoes were always cooked before eating, it was easier for the body to transform the starch to glucose. Since spuds prompt a quick spike in blood sugar levels, they cause the pancreas to go into overdrive trying to bring levels back to normal. As blood sugar falls, people usually experience hunger, which leads to snacking.

Overall, the study found that quality of food is more important than quantity for preventing long-term weight gain, and that small lifestyle changes, such as more exercise and avoiding processed food, made the difference between staying slim and becoming overweight.

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2013/12/16/oakland-teen-declared-brain-dead-days-after-routine-tonsil-surgery/
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – Family members of 13-year-old Jahi McMath are holding out hope for a miracle recovery after a routine procedure has left the girl brain dead. Last week, McMath went in to Children’s Hospital Oakland to get her tonsils removed.

She was supposed to go home the next day, but her grandmother noticed severely bleeding from her nose and mouth after the procedure. She soon went into cardiac arrest.

The child is now hooked up to a ventilator and doctors are telling mother Nailah Winkfield she won’t recover.

It is standard practice in a hospital setting, particularly among Western cultures, to separate mothers and their newborns. Separation is also common for babies under medical distress or premature babies, who may be placed in an incubator. In addition, the American Academy of Pediatrics specifically recommends against co-sleeping with an infant, due to its association with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS.

Humans are the only mammals who practice such maternal-neonate separation, but its physiological impact on the baby has been unknown until now. Researchers measured heart rate variability in 2-day-old sleeping babies for one hour each during skin-to-skin contact with mother and alone in a cot next to mother's bed. Neonatal autonomic activity was 176% higher and quiet sleep 86% lower during maternal separation compared to skin-to-skin contact.

Dr. John Krystal, Editor of Biological Psychiatry, commented on the study's findings: "This paper highlights the profound impact of maternal separation on the infant. We knew that this was stressful, but the current study suggests that this is major physiologic stressor for the infant."

http://www.publicintegrity.org/2012/03/02/8309/long-delayed-diesel-study-published
A much-anticipated government study of more than 12,000 miners — whose publication was delayed by litigation from a group of mining companies — has found that exposure to diesel engine exhaust significantly increases the risk of lung cancer.

For the most heavily exposed miners, the risk of dying from lung cancer was three times higher than it was for those exposed to low doses. For non-smokers, the risk was seven times higher.

30 minutes of daily training provide an equally effective loss of weight and body mass as 60 minutes. If intensive, you may only need ten minutes of exercise.

http://drleonardcoldwell.com/2014/03/19/studies-show-that-acai-berries-can-fight-cancer-boost-immunity-and-more/
Acai berries are the fruits of the acai palm, a species of palm tree native to Central and South America. These berries, which are characterized by their grape-like appearance and bitter taste, have been cherished by the Amazonian natives for centuries due to their incredible medicinal properties. These properties, which are slowly being validated by ongoing studies, are the reason why acai berries – along with other Amazonian foods such as cacao, maca and camu camu – have become synonymous with the “superfood” label.

Rich in antioxidants - According to a study published in the June 2008 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, acai berries contain a large number of antioxidants that help scavenge cell-damaging free radicals from the body. In particular, the study, which was conducted by researchers at the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at Texas A&M University, showed that acai berries possessed the highest antioxidant activity to date against a certain type of free radical, making them an excellent guard against degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration and Alzheimer’s disease. Antioxidant-rich foods like acai berries have also been linked to improved cardiovascular health, improved skin and eye health, anti-aging benefits and more.

Anti-cancer properties - A study by researchers at the University of Florida has shown that acai berry extracts can help kill leukemia cells when applied directly to them over a 24-hour period. Specifically, 86 percent of leukemia cells experienced apoptosis (“cell death”) when subjected to the extract; the researchers attributed this effect to acai berries’ high concentrations of anthocyanins, a type of flavonoid that gives the fruits their distinctive, black-purple color. The study was published in the January 2006 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Immune-boosting properties - Acai berries contain a polysaccharide called arabinogalactan that is known to induce T cell activity, thereby helping the body fight infections. According to researchers at the Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases at Montana State University, these components in acai berries ”have implications for the treatment of asthma and infectious disease.”

Nature has fought back against biotechnology, with rootworms now being able to stomach corn that was genetically modified to poison the pests.

While an awe-inspiring demonstration of nature's endurance, the development could cause billions of dollars worth of damage to US crops.

A young mother is comatose after a routine dental procedure.

Kristen Tavares, 23, was put on life support after going into cardiac arrest during a wisdom teeth removal Monday. The reason for her reaction is unknown.

She was flown to a hospital in Maui where her family members say she is unresponsive and her heart rate too faint for any kind of procedure.
