Better than any prescription drug: Omega-3 fats slash the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease
Natural News
Newly minted research studies continue to extol the critical nature of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA in preserving and maintaining optimal metabolic and brain health. In the past, researchers have identified and clearly demonstrated that eating fish or supplementing with a high-quality fish oil capsule can help lower the risk of sudden death from a heart attack by one-third, as it lowers levels of systemic inflammation, the catalyst for many types of cancer and a primary cause of advanced mortality. Many people have a virtually nonexistent intake of omega-3 fats that leads to a dangerous imbalance with omega-6 fats and a cascade of potentially lethal chronic diseases.

LYME DISEASE


Why is the CDC trying to block an accurate Lyme disease test?
Truthout
A recent article in Medscape is titled "New Lyme Culture Test Failed CDC Analysis." At first Truthout took the article and paper at face value, and tried to dig into the errors of a chronic-Lyme disease researcher. The only errors discovered were by the CDC, and they seem blatant. In the same article about the CDC paper was the explanation that they did not want tests that might lead to unnecessary antibiotic treatment. While it is understandable that the CDC would not want a bad test, why would they block a good test? Because it will cause people to get treated?
