(NewsTarget) Methamphetamine is a highly addictive psychostimulant drug that can have horrifying side effects, but perhaps the most shocking thing about this drug is that the FDA and Big Business may be contributing to its spread in pursuit of profits.
While dietary supplements containing ephedra were banned in 2003, when the FDA stated use of the herb presented "an unreasonable risk of illness or injury," pseudoephedrine-containing over-the-counter medicines from Big Pharma remain on the market. These products are used for far more than relieving sinus pressure, because a Read more
The Amla berry (Emblica officinalis) is a traditional food and medicine that inspires awe in the mind of the serious herbalist due to its many known nutritional and medicinal benefits and uses.
Amla has long been recognized as a famous member of the myrobalan family of fruits and grows into a small or middle-sized deciduous tree with feathery leaves. The juicy green and fleshy fruit grows to over 2-3 centimeters six soft-defined ridges and six seeds.
1 Amla berries are wild-crafted and gathered in the foot hills of the Himalayan regions of Asia and they are also often Read more
In the near future, buying vitamin C directly from your local co-op or health food store could be illegal. Instead, you would be required by law to go to a doctor to get a prescription for these and other related supplements. This could occur thanks to an international food regulation known as Codex Alimentarius (CA), which recently passed in Europe and could be implemented in the U.S. by January 2010. CA enforcement is expected by the World Health Organization, the U.N. and, of course, the FDA.

Those of us who have made the transition into the 21st century are fortunate as we benefit from the numerous inventions and creations from the past that make our daily existence so much more rewarding and enjoyable. One of the intellectual giants who contributed to our contemporary high standard of living and knowledge of human nutrition was Dr. Royal Lee. Even though his name is known to only a small number of Americans, Dr. Lee was a researcher, inventor, scientist, scholar, statesman, businessman and philanthropist of the first order.
(NewsTarget) The well-known saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," is actually derived from the old English saying:
"To eat an apple before going to bed will make the doctor beg for his bread."
The undisputed benefits of eating apples, however, can be further multiplied many fold by the consumption of apple cider vinegar (ACV). A veritable host of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients and substances is available in ACV to improve and reinforce health.

I am not sure how you interpret that we have included synthesized natural form vitamins as an objection to the natural vs. synthetic vitamin controversy, but to call a synthesized vitamin "natural" is an oxymoron. Natural vitamins are made by nature not "created" (synthesized) from something by experts in laboratories. It is possible to make almost anything from anything else in a synthetic manner if you know the chemical pathway, but this does not apply to real, natural nutrition. Only nature can Read more

David Wolfe: How are you doing, Mike?
Mike: I'm doing great, David. For those who don't know who David Wolfe is, let me tell you: This is the raw food pioneer right here.

Tell us about the new book.
Wolfe: The book just came out this week. This is a remake of "The Sunfood Diet Read more
Let's play a word association game, shall we? I say "vitamin," you say what? "Health nut"? "Wheat grass"? After all, you walk down a vitamin aisle and assume everything's natural, no?
Well, one organization south of the border is shaking up our local alt health allies by warning consumers that most of what they're swallowing is far removed from nature and that the industry is, in fact, filling its products with synthetic ingredients. Now the controversial questions swirling through the aether are, what constitutes synthetics and are they necessarily a bad thing?
