High acid causes brittle bones

Sticks and stones may break your bones…but acids are making them weaker. We’re living in an epidemic of dangerous acidosis and no one’s talking about it. Acidosis occurs when our body’s pH balance is overly-acidic. And not only does it rob your bones of vital calcium, it can wreak havoc on your entire body—leaving you […]

Prevent Dangerous Drug Interactions

There are 10,000,000 chemical reactions taking place in every cell of your body, every second. And there are trillions of cells in your body. Adding one drug to that mix complicates things, but that’s what drug trials are for—to ferret out those issues. But when you add a second drug, everything becomes vastly more complicated—and […]

In these pages, I’ve said again and again that acid reflux, heartburn, and GERD—gastroesophageal reflux disease—usually shouldn’t be treated by acid blockers.

Recent news has me worried—particularly about my “Baby Boomer” friends, those born between 1945 and 1965.

Air Pollution Dangers

When it comes to degenerative brain disease, the conclusion reached in recent research seems like…well…a no-brainer.

Now that spring is in full throttle—and summer is right around the corner—I hope you’re taking advantage of the warmth and greenery. Simply getting outside and moving around can be great for you.

Non-stick Coatings are Poisonous

The modern world is a wonderful place. Today, we’ve got cars that can park themselves, computers that will obey our voices, and cookware that never needs scrubbing.
