  1. This breakthrough diet is cancer’s WORST enemy

    This breakthrough diet is cancer’s WORST enemy

    It’s the cancer-fighting secret that EVERYONE will be talking about in the near future.

    But today, I’m going to put you ahead of the curve.

    I’ve got tomorrow’s news today — because I’ve got the scoop on the groundbreaking research behind a proven technique that attacks the hidden cause of many cancers.

    This simple, easy-to-follow program will FIGHT the tumor at its root and CRUSH it.

    This cutting-edge cancer cure isn’t a drug with side effects.

    It’s not even a vitamin or supplement.

    The secret is a natural diet designed to specifically SEEK and DESTORY the pathogenic fungal infections we now know are often the cause of so many cancers.

    It’s called the Kaufmann diet, and it was developed by researcher and mycotoxin expert Doug Kaufmann. It’s specially designed to starve these infections so that the cancer cells die off — and it’s proven to work if you HAVE cancer, if you’re at RISK for cancer, or if you’re just concerned and want to make sure that you NEVER get this disease.

    Kaufmann’s diet came about after he discovered striking similarities between cancer and fungi, including how they both thrive on sugars.

    More importantly, they both DIE without those same sugars.

    Of course, sugar isn’t just the white stuff in a porcelain bowl in your cupboard.

    In addition to that sugar itself, carbs such as grains — including whole grains — are converted into sugars inside your body.

    As a result, the first phase of the Kaufmann diet severely restricts sugars and carbs.

    Alcohol is also forbidden. Not only is booze a top cause of the disease, but the sugars in alcohol can help feed the fungal infections at the root of these cancers.

    You also need to avoid yeast, which will be less of a problem without bread and beer (but watch ingredients carefully — you’d be surprised how often they sneak it in), as well as fungi and mushrooms (for obvious reasons) and peanuts, which can contain fungal mycotoxins.

    Patients are also given anti-fungal medications and/or supplements in this phase.

    Without the sugars, the fungi behind many cancers in the body choke and die, killing tumors at the same time.

    And that’s not all.

    This phase also works in three other ways:

    1. It boosts your immune system so that your body is better equipped to fight cancer.
    2. It slashes your levels of the damaging inflammation that helps tumors to thrive.
    3. It protects your DNA from the damage of the fungal infection.

    Once this phase is complete — and you’re feeling better than you have in years — dieters can slowly restore low levels of healthy carbohydrates.

  2. Is an Oreo Cookie Addictive?

    The real reason you love Oreos

    Some unhealthy snacks taste so good they're almost addictive.

    And in some cases, you can take the "almost" out of the equation -- because new research shows that some junk foods really might be addictive, especially an Oreo cookie.

    You know the Oreo cookie. They've been around for 100 years now, and for 100 years people have pulled them apart, eaten the creamy white filling and then crunched away on the chocolate cookies... before quickly reaching for another.

    When that happens, it's not just because you're hungry for more cookies. It's because the Oreo  cookie itself is igniting the pleasure centers of your brain in much the same way as addictive drugs like cocaine, according to the new study on rats.

    In one experiment, rats were trained to get rice cakes from one side of a maze and Oreo cookies from the other. Then, they were set loose and allowed to pick which side they would go to for food.

    Do I need to tell you which one they picked?

    In a second experiment, another set of rats was injected with saline at one end of the maze and addictive drugs such as cocaine and morphine at the other. Once again, they were set loose and allowed to choose.

    They picked the addictive drugs, of course. In fact, the rats on cocaine and the rats on Oreos behaved in remarkably similar ways.

    "I haven't touched an Oreo since doing this experiment," researcher Joseph Schroeder was quoted as saying.

    I don't blame him... but it's not just for the Oreo cookie. We know from other studies that junk foods in general and sugary foods in particular can activate the pleasure centers of the brain in the same way as addictive drugs.

    Yes, "junk-food junkie" isn't just a figure of speech. It's a real addiction.

    The best way to kick your own snack habit is to go cold turkey. Don't buy the junk, don't keep it in your home and you won't be tempted by it.

    Instead, try healthier snacks including fresh fruits and even chocolate. Chocolate can actually help protect your heart and brain when eaten in moderation. Just be sure you stick to real chocolate -- ideally the dark variety -- and not chocolate-flavored cookies with a creamy white filling.

  3. High-glycemic index foods increase diabetes risk

    Foods high on the glycemic index -- especially sugars -- can dramatically increase the risk of diabetes, according to new research.
  4. Diabetics should concentrate on a low-carb diet

    The best way for diabetics to get control of their blood sugar is to cut down on their carbs -- and the latest research confirms this approach.
  5. How to avoid kidney stones

    More people than ever can expect to battle kidney stones, with new numbers showing the risk has nearly doubled over 16 years. Here's how to avoid them.
  6. Don't go low-cal to fight diabetes

    I can't think of any good reason to ever starve yourself on purpose -- but researchers keep pushing ultra-low calorie diets for everything from longevity to disease prevention. The latest: A new push to brand these extreme and dangerous diets as a "cure" for diabetes.
