  1. Can drinking water help you to lose more weight?

    Down a glass of "this" before you eat and watch the weight slide off

    I've heard a lot of silly get slim quick diet tricks over the years, but one tip that comes up time and time again is drinking more water with your meals.

    The evidence for downing H20 for weight loss has always been a glass half-full or half-empty deal, depending on which studies you read.

    Some show drinking more water will help you eat less and lose weight. Others show you can guzzle it like a fish and be just as fat at the end of the day.

    Now, new research shows how water really just might be able to help speed your weight loss -- but ONLY if you drink it at the right time.

    The key isn't to just drink water whenever you're hungry, and it's not to just drink more water with your food.

    It's to drink 16 ounces of water -- about two tall glasses -- half an hour before your meals.

    In the new study, dieters were told to either do just that or to visualize being full before eating. After three months, those who drank water not only shed more pounds, they lost almost 50 percent more weight.

    Folks who just visualized being full lost 6.61 pounds over those three months, while those who had 16 ounces of water 30 minutes before each meal lost 9.48 pounds.

    What's especially remarkable about this study is that no one was put on a special weight-loss diet. Everyone was given some general advice about making better choices, but no one was given any dietary restrictions.

    And they still managed to shed nearly 10 pounds just by adding a glass of water to their meals.

    The one "catch" here is that most U.S. drinking water is contaminated with low-level hormones, chemical waste and even trace levels of street drugs such as cocaine -- and that's not even including the garbage they dump in deliberately such as fluoride and chlorine.

    In some places, the water is so heavily treated the bathroom smells like a swimming pool. So if you're going to drink water, make sure it's filtered with either reverse osmosis or a water distiller.

    And if you really want to lose weight and get healthy, you'll need to do more than just drink a little more water.

    You'll have to watch what you eat, too. I recommend a back-to-basics Mediterranean-style diet, which offers the widest variety of food, the fewest restrictions and the best overall taste.

  2. Roundup lawsuits could spell big trouble for Monsanto

    Is this the beginning of the end for Monsanto?

    You reap what you sow -- and it looks like Monsanto is finally about to reap a long-overdue harvest for the deadly lies it's sown.

    At first glance two new court filings seem so ordinary that almost no one in the mainstream media has picked up on them yet. But make no mistake about it: These filings represent a bombshell being dropped on the company.

    And that bombshell is about to explode.

    The two separate lawsuits -- one filed in federal court, one in U.S. District Court -- were filed on behalf of two agricultural workers who got cancer after working with glyphosate.

    That's the dangerous chemical in the weedkiller Roundup, and you don't have to be an agricultural worker to get exposed. Some 185 million pounds are dumped onto genetically modified crops such a corn and soy each year.

    Anytime you eat conventional corn and soy, you're likely getting a dose yourself -- and along with cancer, it's been linked to the type of cellular damage that could lead to degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, cystic fibrosis, Alzheimer's and more.

    But Monsanto's powerful network of lawyers, lobbyists and paid-for politicians have been able to suppress those risks, hide the evidence and get the EPA to declare that glyphosate is safe.

    Because of that ruling, the company's powerful attorneys in the past would have had any lawsuits tossed out of court in a heartbeat.

    They can't do that anymore.

    Now that the state of California is going to list glyphosate as a probable carcinogen -- and it's already been listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer -- Monsanto has suddenly lost its only real legal argument.

    Lawyers sense blood in the water.

    They're gathering Roundup workers who've had cancer and other health problems, and legal experts now expect these two cases to be the first of hundreds of lawsuits against the company to be filed in the coming months.

    Remember the tobacco hearings and everything that followed? That's not out of the question here once the floodgates open up.

    Of course, none of that helps your family right now -- so if you want to avoid this poison, you still need to take matters into your own hands. Only organic foods are guaranteed to be non-GMO and free of dangerous chemicals such as glyphosate.

    Sure they're a bit more expensive. But you can't put a price on your family's health.

  3. Antipsychotics don't work for depression

    Depression should NEVER be treated with antipsychotics -- but new research is pushing those dangerous meds on depressed seniors anyway.
  4. Flu shot is supposed to be better... but it's not!

    The CDC insists this year's flu shot is better than ever -- but the numbers show that even in the best years, the flu shot does practically nothing.
  5. Depression caused by sleep apnea

    Depression can be caused by sleep apnea, according to new research, which finds that up to 70 percent of apnea patients are also depressed.
