Cholesterol Is Finally Officially Removed From 'Naughty' List

The US government has finally accepted that cholesterol is not a 'nutrient of concern', doing a U-turn on their warnings!

Cholesterol has been on the "naughty" list of nutrients for nearly 40 years, with health officials warning us to stay away from high-cholesterol foods since the 1970s to avoid heart disease and clogged arteries.

But US officials have finally given the green light for a U-turn on previous warnings, which means eggs, butter, full-fat dairy products, nuts, coconut oil and meat have now been classified as "safe" and have been officially removed from the "nutrients of concern" list.

The US Department of Agriculture, which is responsible for updating the guidelines every five years, stated in its findings for 2015: "Previously, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommended that cholesterol intake be limited to no more than 300 mg/day.

"The 2015 DGAC will not bring forward this recommendation because available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, consistent with the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association / American College of Cardiology) report.....CLICK HERE to read the whole article.

Extensive Research on Papaya Leaf Juice

The Institute for Medical Research (IMR) of Malaysia has started research on the healing properties of papaya leaf juice as a cure for dengue.
IMR medical officer Dr Soobitha Subendran said the research is expected to be completed in two years.
Dr Soobitha said the leaf does not miraculously cure dengue patients, instead it is a “supportive treatment” that helps accelerate the recovery process that usually takes nine to 10 days.
“I have personally witnessed the speedy recovery of patients administered the papaya leaf extract compared to the control group that received standard dengue treatment in the previous clinical trial conducted by IMR,” said Dr Soobitha.
Those intending to take the papaya leaf extract should consult a doctor first before doing so and once cleared by a certified health specialist, can start taking two tablespoons a day for a maximum of three days.
A brochure distributed by IMR details the safe preparation of the papaya leaf juice. Firstly, pick two mature leaves before removing the stump and then wash the leaves thoroughly before soaking for 15 minutes, followed by one last rinse.
Next, it is recommended to either blend, in a blender, or pound the leaves in a pestle and mortar to extract the juice before consuming.



It’s no cure, but papaya leaf has scientifically verified cancer slowing properties. A study by the University of Florida documented the impact of papaya leaf extract on lab-grown tumors and discovered the extract’s ability to slow cancerous tumor growth without the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
10 different types of cancer including cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreatic cancers were exposed to papaya leaf extract. In every single case, the extract slowed the growth of the tumors, and the larger the dose of papaya leaf extract, the stronger the anticancer effects.
This is great news for everyone, because millions of people suffer from cancer directly or indirectly everyday, and the numbers keep growing. Mountains of money are thrown towards research for cancer cures, but to this day, cancer remains an incurable disease.
Could mother nature hold the cure to this chronic illness in the glowing green juice of the papaya plant? Alternative medicine might be on to something.
Th1-type cytokines are hormonal messengers responsible for the biological effects of the immune system. Papaya leaf extract boosts the production of these molecules, giving you a stronger, healthier immune system.

Stand Up to Fight Sitting Disease

By Michael W. Smith, MD WebMD Chief Medical Editor Do you have sitting disease? Chances are you do. You’ve probably guessed the remedy — stand up. Move. But for how long, and what exactly do you need to do? A flurry of studies in recent years shows that we’re slowly killing ourselves by sitting too long on our tuckuses. The number of health problems associated with prolonged sitting continues to grow, from too much belly fat to heart disease and even cancer. Now experts are telling us we should be on our feet at least two hours during the workday. But maybe as little as a 2-minute walk every hour is enough – at least according to a recent study that showed this minimal amount of walking decreased the chance of premature death by 33%. Who’s right? Can’t experts just agree? Well, they do.......CLICK HERE to read the whole article.
