HI AND WELCOME TO ANOTHER ADDITION OF NATURAL HEALTH NEWS THIS WEEK!
REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE SAFETY OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED CROPS… ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR THEIR INTRODUCTION IS NOT WORKING…
THE THOUGHT WAS MAKING CROPS RESISTANT TO PESTS WOULD MAKE THEM MORE ROBUST, WHICH WOULD HELP FEED THE WORLD’S POPULATION AND REQUIRE FEWER APPLICATIONS OF PESTICIDES…
RESEARCH BY THE NEW YORK TIMES IS SHOWING JUST THE OPPOSITE… THE U-S AND CANADA HAVE NO NOTICEABLE ADVANTAGE IN YIELD WHEN MEASURED AGAINST WESTERN EUROPE… WHICH HAS REJECTED GMO’S.
AND… WHILE INSECTICIDE USE HAS FALLEN BY ABOUT A THIRD IN THE U-S… THE SPRAYING OF HERBICIDES… WHICH ARE USED IN MUCH HIGHER VOLUMES… HAS INCREASED BY 21 PERCENT!
ARE YOU GETTING YOUR ESSENTIAL FATS?
RESEARCH INDICATES THAT DIETS RICH IN OMEGA-3’S CAN HELP PREVENT THE ONSET OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE IN HEALTHY YOUNG PEOPLE.
THE STUDY INCLUDED JUST OVER 2 THOUSAND YOUNG HEALTHY ADULTS… IT SHOWED A LOWER SYSTOLIC AND DIASTOLIC PRESSURE IN THOSE WHO HAD THE HIGHEST AMOUND OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS IN THEIR BLOOD COMPARED TO THOSE THAT HAD THE LOWEST AMOUNT.
AND FINALLY… SCIENTISTS ARE FINDING A PROMISING CONNECTION BETWEEN PROBIOTICS AND COGNITIVE FUNCTION.
IN A RECENT STUDY… SCIENTISTS SHOW THAT A DAILY DOSE OF COMMON PROBIOTIC DAILY OVER A 12 WEEK PERIOD SHOWED A MODERATE3 BUT SIGNIFICANT IN THE COGNITION OF ELDERLY ALZHEIMER’S PATIENTS.
DESPITE THE INCREASE… ALL OF THE PATIENTS REMAINED SEVERELY COGNITIVELY IMPAIRED… BUT THE RESULTS ARE THE FIRST TO LINK PROBIOTICS AND IMPROVED HUMAN COGNITION.
