How much fish is safe to eat?

Not long ago, our waters were filled with healthy, nutrition-rich fish—an amazing source of vital omega-3 fatty acids. But today, though our waters are still filled with fish, they’re also filled with toxins—and so, in turn, nearly every fish contains toxins as well. Sadly, it’s time to ban eating some fish, to limit consumption of […]

Lead Danger from Water Pipes

Until recently, it seemed lead was a problem from another age. Like smallpox and syphilis, the danger of lead felt far away—perhaps present somewhere in the world, but not here in the United States. Flint, Michigan changed all that. By now, I’m sure you’ve heard the story—how Flint’s municipal plumbing pipes were corroded by acidic […]

Naltrexone: Real Medicine for Problem Drinking

In the US, 7% of the population 18 and older has a drinking problem. Fully a quarter of the population reports drinking heavily, or drinking more than they want. The damage that alcohol and other drugs can do to lives is immeasurable. And that’s just thinking about direct impact. Don’t forget the toll abuse takes […]

Weight gain from thyroid or adrenal problems

Have you been doing everything right, but still continue to gain weight? Are you getting enough sleep, the right nutrients, not overeating—yet the pounds continue to pile on? It might not be your fault. It might be an issue with either your thyroid, or adrenal, glands. The truth is, when you have a problem with […]

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 […]

You spend about one third of your life laying in bed. And, while getting enough sleep is one of the best things you can do for your health, you’ve got to be careful where you do it. Because, believe it or not, the majority of bed linens contain dangerous chemicals, rubbing directly against your body, […]

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 […]

Heartburn Medicine Danger: Kidneys

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. Doctors are very quick to prescribe acid blockers—usually proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs)—but the problems with them are enormous. For one thing, most heartburn isn’t caused by excessive stomach acid. And even when acid is […]

Plants Clean the Air

The air you’re breathing right now is probably doing you harm. I’m not talking about the pollution in our skies. I’m talking about the pollution in your room. Indoor air quality is generally worse than outdoor. It has anywhere from two to five times as many VOCS—volatile organic compounds. Luckily, there’s an extremely easy fix. […]

Symptom-free, dangerous liver problems

Recent news has me worried—particularly about my “Baby Boomer” friends, those born between 1945 and 1965. It’s nothing that can’t be fixed—but I’m certain many Boomers don’t even know anything’s wrong. The news is about two kinds of liver disease: hepatitis C and fatty liver disease. Hepatitis C killed more Americans in 2014—nearly 20,000—than any […]
