What Happens When You Reduce Fats And Increase Carbs

We all know that weight gain is an increasingly disturbing problem in the western world. Have you ever wondered why this may be? If you were to read anything about diet prior to 1977, the dietary recommendation would be simple … eat three meals daily, period.  Eating between meals was considered either rude or glutinous.  Or it was a sign that the prior meal was inadequate.  It is only over the last 35 years or so, and predominantly in America, that eating between meals is socially tolerated.  And as far as we can ascertain, this experiment is having the expected result, we are getting bigger and lead the world in non-infectious gastrointestinal illness.

What happens when you eat simple carbohydrate foods at or between meals every day?  You get hungry in between!

What happens when you only eat low-fat foods, and only at meals three times per day?  You get hungry in between!

So where did the recommendations for eating 4-5 meals per day come from?   Read More

Brain Cancer Leading Death Rates In Australian Children

Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in young people and accounts for more than one third of cancer deaths in children aged under 10. This alarming statistic reflects the least funded and deadliest cancer in Australia. Leading neurosurgeon, Dr Charlie Teo said recently, “People continue to believe that cancer is a disease that strikes as you get older. I saw 23 patients last week. Twenty were diagnosed with malignant brain cancer. Eight of those diagnosed were under 16 years old.”

Every year about 2,000 Australian children under the age of sixteen are diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Dr Andrew Peman, CEO of Cancer Council NSW recently said, “Despite having a fatality rate of almost 100 per cent, brain cancer remains the least understood of all the cancers. It’s the biggest cancer killer of young people and we need funds to change this. Each year increasing numbers of malignant brain cancer cases are diagnosed in Australia. One every eight hours die from the disease. Risk factors of brain cancer are unknown and there are no screening procedures in place.” Read More

New Research Substantiates the Anti-Aging Properties of DHEA

Here Are 8 Major Benefits of DHEA

In 2007, the battle against Congress’s ill-conceived campaign to re-classify DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) as an “anabolic steroid drug” – an act that would have made this life-sustaining compound unavailable to the general public without a prescription – was won, and less than three years later, scientists uncovered even more research substantiating DHEA’s remarkable health-promoting benefits.

It’s called the fountain of youth, the super-hormone, the antidote to aging. It can help people look younger, feel better and live longer. Circulating throughout the human body, it is present at even higher levels in brain tissue. In fact, brain tissue contains 5 to 6 times more DHEA than any other tissue in the human body. As we age our DHEA production falls dramatically. DHEA can be helpful in treating auto-immune disorders, obesity, dementia, osteoporosis and chronic fatigue.  Read More

Hormonal Imbalance – How Does It Start?

In industrial countries all around the world, there is a growing problem with regards to hormone imbalance. Science shows that one of the main causes is our chemically polluted environment. Research into the mating of wildlife has shown that animals are reproducing less and less and in many cases have such serious sexual deformities that they are unable to reproduce at all. It is only logical that humans are also affected, after all, we live in the same ecosystem.
