A study claiming that fish oil provides no benefit in heart disease is being hyped as the final word on the issue. But is it? No, it is not. In fact, the study is absurdly blatant pseudo science, with two errors so glaring it's hard to believe they were made. Why do the researchers do it? Why do they care so little about the truth and..
Turkeys are taking revenge for the horrendous treatment by Agribusiness. Most ground turkey tested by Consumer Reports was contaminated with drug-resistant bacteria. But if you want to solve the problem, you'll need to ignore their advice. There's no solution within a system that treats food as nothing but a commodity.
Salt reduction is a third rail of medicine. There is simply too much money to be made on blood pressure drugs, and Big Pharma must not be crossed. But the reality is that reducing salt intake provides no benefit for heart health. Nonetheless, the official stance doesn't change.
Organic food isn't cheap, and the real thing never will be. The concept of mass-produced organics is fraudulent. It runs counter to both the ethos & reality. They cannot be produced by Agribusiness-style farmers who keep producing the same crop year-on-year. As long as food is treated as a commodity, then we have degraded the basic..
One of the most frequent epithets tossed at people who make claims of alternative medicine is that it's just the placebo effect. But that is based on the myth that placebos can cure. The reality, as clearly documented by science, is that they don't. So the skeptics base their favorite claim on a myth, not reality, and most assuredly not..
The UK's Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is trying to put alternative medicine practitioners out of business. They've started putting out letters to practitioners telling them, basically, that they can't say what they do on their websites. They can't say they treat anything. That's because the monopolistic powers of conventional..
Why not just make your own flu vaccine? The ingredients are readily available. This belly laugh video shows you how [2:48].
In today's world, what are a girl's rights to have clean, hygienic toilets in school? In India, far too many girls don't have that right. Girls are dropping out of schools due to a lack of toilet facilities. Video, 10 minutes.
Permitting corporations to genetically modify, synthetically process and artificially preserve substances for you to ingest, and then calling it "food" insults our health and well-being. The claim that starving masses must be given cheap alternatives is a fabrication to let them trod upon our garden.
Gaia Health dug deep into the issue of psychiatry's abuse of electricity and found that it goes way back to Norse's earliest gods. Thor was the world's very first electroconvulsive therapist! He, though, was more discerning than today's psychiatrists. He, at least, focused on his enemies.
The benefits of grape seed extract in cancer are well documented, but modern medicine won't do anything with it until the mechanism of action has been found, so that it can be isolated, purified, made poisonous and owned by a single company for enormous profits.
The FDA has taken a freely-available herbal product, sap of the dragon's blood tree, defined it as the drug Fulyzac, & handed it to Big Pharma. Nature's gift is being polluted. What you get after Big Pharma and & the FDA get their hands on it has lost much of its value and often been rendered into a poison, the very nature of a drug.
Tweet Sometimes, all we need is a pointed cartoon to explain what we’re about – and this one is spot on for Gaia Health. Not just following the leader. Not just going along to get along. Gaia Health is about finding and telling the truth, whatever it may be.
We are being deeply and intrinsically damaged by the system that now feeds us. Our lives are shortened and our ability to move into the future, to reproduce ourselves, is impaired. That is the primary message brought home by a study comparing conventional and organic food in fruit flies.
Agribusiness is polluting and destroying the food on which we depend . Irradiation destroys nutrients and creates poisons. Despite claims, it's largely hidden from us. It exists for the benefit of Agribiz, not for our health.
