Aspartame linked to vision loss, cancer and other illnesses
Aspartame – sold under the brand names NutraSweet, Sugar Twin and Equal – is one of the most popular artificial sweeteners available on the market. It is used as a low-calorie sugar substitute in more than 6,000 processed products worldwide, especially in diet or sugar-free foods and beverages. While it remains the most used artificial sweetener, it has also faced controversy in recent years. As more and more research links aspartame to severe health effects, increasing numbers of people are becoming aware of this hidden poison and are trying to avoid it at all costs. That’s why Pepsi proactively removed it from their diet soda last year. Hidden poison Complaints of various health issues have been filed since aspartame first appeared on the market in the 1980s. As reported by The Nutritional Source, aspartame is one of the most exhaustively studied chemicals in the human food supply, with more than 200 studies completed. Dr. Betty Martini, the founder of the worldwide volunteer force Mission Possible World Health International, which is committed to removing aspartame from our food, notes that aspartame has brought more complaints to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) than any other additive; it is responsible for 75 percent of such complaints. Over the years, more than 90 side effects – including vision loss, seizures, brain tumors, cancer and mild rashes – have been associated with regular consumption of aspartame. Furthermore, it can mimic the symptoms of diseases such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, ADD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue and depression. When […]

So many turkeys on the road: AAA predicts Thanksgiving travel will reach 9-year high
Bad news for holiday travelers is good news for business. If the AAA’s recent forecast is correct, Thanksgiving week could bring with it a boom in American businesses, one not seen since 2007 — before the economy cratered during the 2008 economic crisis. According to AAA research conducted in mid-October, businesses should expect roughly 48.7 million Americans to travel, with an additional 1 million commuting at least 50 miles from their homes (an increase of 1.9 percent from last year’s figure). Within this group, AAA anticipates that 43.5 million Americans will travel using lengthy car trips, an increase of 1.9 percent from last year. AAA also expects that 3.7 million Americans will travel using airlines, an increase of 1.6 percent from last year, whereas bus and train transportation are only expected to grow by less than 1 percent. The week of Thanksgiving has long been a critically important one for American businesses. During the days leading up to and during the holiday itself, Americans will glut on spending for transportation (by air, mass transit, or their own automobiles) and festive foods. What’s more, the day after Thanksgiving — colloquially known as Black Friday — is widely regarded as the official start of the holiday shopping season, meaning that economic analysts look at Black Friday shopping numbers for indications about the nation’s economic health. An increase in spending is considered to be a sign of growth; stagnation or reduced spending, on the other hand, is regarded as ominous. Some companies try to take advantage of the […]

Guacamole Could be a Delicious Way to Ward Off Prostate Cancer
Guacamole Could be a Delicious Way to Ward Off Prostate Cancer: Men who eat 90 grams of avocado daily are 59% less likely to get prostate cancer, according to a recent study from Jamaica. And when scientists tested this in a more controlled lab setting, they discovered avocado extract to be so toxic to prostate cancer cells, it slowed their growth by up to 99% in a test tube. We still don’t know the exact compounds responsible for this effect, but avocados are a rich source of many powerful anticancer substances such as mono-unsaturated fats, potassium, magnesium, carnitine, dietary fiber, lutein, and the unique cancer toxin called persin. As a side benefit, 3 separate studies have shown that eating about one avocado per day resulted in significant weight loss in adults, and just 70 grams daily reduced the risk of metabolic syndrome by 50% in an American population study. Avocados go great in any green salad, vegetable smoothie, marinated, or as part of my personal favorite — freshly made guacamole. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15629237 Originally published on The Eden Prescription republished with permission A quick note from our founder- Over the past year, my friend Dave at PaleoHacks has been working on a secret cookbook with world-renowned Le Cordon Bleu chef Peter Servold.

Italian Pastry Chef Creates Miniature Worlds With Desserts
    Advertisement   Matteo Stucchi is a pastry chef from Monza, Italy, who builds playful tasty-looking worlds using only desserts and and fills them with little figurines. “A dessert’s looks is just as important as its taste,” says Matteo and we couldn’t agree more. Baked brownies become mining sites, cake pops turn into a Ferris wheel – there’s no limit to his wild imagination. The only thing that comes close to his creativity is his patience. The attention he gives to every detail is just amazing. His efforts didn’t go unnoticed. In just a couple of months he reached 35,000 followers and the number of sweet tooths is constantly growing.

New device used in monkeys sparks hope of paralysis cure
GENEVA (AFP) – A new device has allowed two monkeys to regain use of their paralysed legs by transmitting brain signals wirelessly, bypassing their spinal cord lesions, a study released Wednesday by the journal Nature said. The implantable device, called a neuroprosthetic interface, was developed by an international team led by researchers at the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL) and may soon be tested as a remedy for paralysis in humans. “For the first time, I can imagine a completely paralysed patient able to move their legs through this brain-spine interface,” Jocelyne Bloch, a neurosurgeon at the Lausanne University Hospital, said in a press release from EPFL. The interface conceived at EPFL is a multi-component brain-spine connector, which decodes signals from the part of the motor cortex responsible for leg movements. It then relays those signals in real time to the lumbar region of the spinal cord that activates leg muscles to walk. In the two test cases, the monkeys’ motor cortex and spinal lumbar regions were still functioning. The interface was therefore able to wirelessly relay the movement instructions while skipping the damaged area of the spine causing the paralysis, EPFL said. The monkeys regained some use of their paralysed leg within two weeks, walking on both a treadmill and on the ground, Nature said in a press release. The journal noted that implantable technology that decodes brain signals has previously allowed a human patient to move a prosthetic or robotic hand. But using a neuroprosthetic interface to activate a complex leg muscle […]
