Emulsifiers Linked to Obesity & Bowel Disorders
The stuff that makes ice cream and mayonnaise creamy is harmful to your intestines
Artificial preservatives used in the preparation of packaged foods have been identified as increasing the risk of inflammatory bowel disorders and metabolic disorders such as obesity. A study published in the February 25 edition of the journal Nature found that emulsifiers altered the makeup of intestinal bacteria in mice.
There are about 15 emulsifiers typically used in Western foods. They keep foods such as mayonnaise and ice cream consistent. In fact, many foods would not exist as we know them today without emulsifiers to help hold them together into a creamy consistency, which the human pallet finds attractive.

Foods That Protect Your Brain
Many people today are concerned about their brain function, and rightly so. Scientific literature and popular media show there is an increase in brain-related dysfunction and diseases such as early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral aneurysms, or mental disorders.

Ginger effective in helping diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is on a trajectory to reach 366 million diagnosed worldwide by the year 2030. When I ask patients about their health history, I no longer ask if there are people in their families who have diabetes, I ask how many. The last time I had a patient say “no one” was over five years ago! Diabetes had become an epidemic with no end in sight and no “cure” on the horizon.
There is where ginger comes in. In two recent studies, one published in the journal Complimentary Therapies in Medicine and the other in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, ginger’s effectiveness in helping diabetes was examined. Continue reading New studies show ginger effective in helping diabetes
Organic Food: Really Better for You?
… or does it just cost more?
This may be one of the most frequently asked questions that I receive. The answer would seem from first glance to be yes but there have been contradictory reports for years that organic food doesn’t really deliver when it comes to enhancing our health and fighting disease. In fact one 2009 study funded by the UK Food Standards Agency found that there were no significant differences in nutritional benefits between organic and conventionally grown crops.
However, a new meta study conducted by Newcastle University analyzed 343 studies to determine if there were any substantial nutrient differences between organic versus conventional food. Here are the most relevant findings from the study: Continue reading Organic Food: Really Better For You?
Too much sugar is affecting your intelligence and moods
We all know eating sugar is bad for us in a lot of ways, such as weight gain, hypoglycemia, diabetes, or increased inflammation throughout the body. However, until recently very little attention has been paid to how a diet high in sugar impacts our mental state, from our cognition to our psychological well-being.
Sugar comes in many forms, such as glucose, fructose, honey or high fructose corn syrup, and can be found in 74% of all processed foods in our supermarkets. This is one reason why I tell all of my patients to avoid processed and packaged foods. Continue reading Sugar and your brain
GMOs and Infertility: Is There a Connection?
According to a recent study, rats that were fed a diet of GMO (genetically modified organism) food ended up becoming infertile. Researchers from the Suez Canal University of Egypt concluded that rats fed a GMO diet not only wound up infertile but also suffered from other adverse health effects.
As many of you who have been reading my articles know, I have been writing about the possible negative effects of eating GM foods for a long time. I believe that we are unsuspecting participants in the largest food experiment ever conducted on the human population. This experiment largely went unnoticed until people in the scientific, environmental, and health fields began to question the efficacy of GMO crops. Continue reading GMOs and Infertility: Is There a Connection?
Soda ingredient linked to cancer
Chemicals in the caramel coloring raise your cancer risk
At this point I would assume that most people who read my newsletter recognize that drinking soda is not good for us. Soda is a completely man-made product that is clearly associated with becoming obese, developing metabolic syndrome and/or diabetes, and substantially increasing our inflammation. Now there is compelling new evidence that links drinking a high level of soda with cancer.
A Consumer Reports study that was published earlier this year (February 18) in the scientific online journal PLOS ONE establishes a link between soda consumption and the risk of getting cancer. The study looked at one particular chemical of concern, 4 methylimidazole (4-Mel), which is found in some types of caramel color and is used to give colas and other sodas their distinctive brown coloring.

Is autism in your child’s destiny?
How GMOs affect humans, and the GMO-autism link
At a December 2014 conference, MIT research scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff startled the participants with this statement: “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” The panel was there to discuss the effects of GMOs on humans and their possible correlation with diseases. Dr. Seneff, who has published over 170 peer-reviewed scientific articles, stated that there was a strong correlation between the side effects of autism and the glyphosate toxicity.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup and has been linked to many disorders in other research. Dr. Seneff presented data showing a correlation between the use of Roundup on crops, the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds, and rising rates of autism in children. Children with autism have certain blood values and other biomarkers that indicate glyphosate toxicity, including iron and zinc deficiency, seizures, low serum sulfate, and mitochondrial (the energy producing factory of the cell) disorder.
