  1. Sinus problems linked to dampness and mold

    Is this the REAL reason for your sinus misery?

    It's been a rainy summer for much of the nation, and all that wet weather outside can also lead to moisture inside.

    That leads to fungi and mold hiding inside your home -- and new research shows how those growths are more than just a nuisance.

    They're a threat to your health!

    If you have leaks or signs of mold in your own home, you could face chronic health problems -- especially breathing problems, sinus conditions, and other forms of long-term misery.

    It just takes a little bit of moisture.

    If you have just a little water damage -- even seemingly minor spots -- you're 90 percent more likely to suffer from breathing problems, such as shortness of breath, at night.

    You could also end up with chronic rhinosinusitis, a nasty form of inflammation in your nose and sinuses. It's a condition closely linked to smoking, but you don't need to touch a cigarette to get it yourself.

    Water and/or mold in your home will increase your risk of this irritating condition by 77 percent -- giving you the same risk as a smoker, even if you've never taken a puff of tobacco in your life.

    That's still not all.

    You're also 67 percent more likely to live with the misery of chronic bronchitis.

    Guess what? That's STILL not all!

    Even if you escape ALL of those specific conditions, the study finds moisture around your home could lead to general symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, asthma, and allergies.

    Some water damage is easy to spot. Heavy rains can cause a leak... and you might spot the damage in the form of a dark patch on the ceiling or the puddle in the basement. You can also spot the signs of mold forming around window frames or near doors.

    According to the study, 1 in 10 homes had those visible signs of moisture damage.

    Others aren't so easy to notice. A pipe can leak inside a wall or under a floor and you might not know about it for ages, especially if it's a slow leak.

    In addition to watching out for the obvious signs of moisture -- especially during and after heavy rains -- give your home a careful inspection every few months, paying especially close attention to ceilings, attics, basements, and bathrooms.

    If you spot any place where moisture is getting in, get it fixed up and dried out. If the problem has been around a while or gotten out of hand, you may need to bring in professionals to deal with it.

  2. C. diff infection risk jumps in hospitals

    America's worst bacteria... and how to BEAT it!

    It's a major source of illness, misery, and even death that's so common, one American gets sick from it nearly EVERY MINUTE of every day.

    Yet it gets zero attention from the mainstream media!

    Now, new research shows how the number of cases of infection with a dangerous strain of bacteria is growing at an alarming rate.

    It's called Clostridium difficile, a.k.a. C. diff, and it can lead to painful gut inflammation and diarrhea so severe you could literally die from dehydration.

    C. diff can even lead to deadly blood infections, especially in older patients.

    And your odds of picking up this bug are growing: Over about a decade, the number of C. diff cases has jumped by 40 percent, with 500,000 Americans now suffering from these infections every year.

    But that's NOT the scary part of the study.

    Believe it or not, it gets worse.

    If you're at risk -- and, if you're a little older, you ARE at risk -- you could face getting sick with C. diff over and over and over again.

    There's been a 200 PERCENT jump in the number of patients who've suffered multiple infections.

    That's a sure sign the mainstream approach to both prevention and treatment has failed miserably.

    Of course it's failed. Mainstream docs barely have an approach at all!

    The study finds that the biggest risk is in folks (especially older ones) who take common meds, including antibiotics and acid reflux drugs.

    We already KNOW that these drugs increase the risk of infection, yet there hasn't been any real effort to cut back on them!

    Heck, earlier this year, mainstream researchers urged every older patient on aspirin to ALSO take an acid reflux drug to help cut the risk of bleeding in the gut.

    So, until they get serious about stopping the cause, these ugly numbers will keep getting worse.

    Don't worry too much -- because I've got you covered with some simple steps you can take to slash your risk of infection and bounce back quickly, if you ever do get sick.

    If you're in poor health and struggle with your immunity... take or have taken antibiotics... or spend any time at all in a hospital or other care facility... add a probiotic supplement to your daily routine.

    Good bacteria can fight off the bad and prevent illness, even when you've been exposed to the germs.

    In this case, specifically the beneficial strains known as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and a probiotic yeast called Sacharomyces boulardii can all prevent illness.

    And if you're already infected with C. diff, these same probiotics can also help fight it. They may even prevent recurrence!
