Increased homocysteine found to be strongly associated with the risk of colorectal cancer (http://1.usa.gov/1VZ25vB). Learn how to lower levels in my video:
One week on a plant-based diet can significantly drop blood levels of homocysteine, a toxin associated with cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. Without vitamin B12 supplementation, though, a long-term plant-based diet could make things worse.

A review of 13 randomized controlled trials show green tea causes a slight improvement in blood pressure (http://1.usa.gov/1PyjciH). What kind of drink may have even more antioxidants than green tea? Click to see video:
The antioxidant content of a number of popular beverages is compared: black tea, coffee, Coke, espresso, grape juice, green tea, hibiscus (Jamaica flower) tea, milk, Pepsi, Red Bull, red tea, red wine, and white wine. Which beats out even powdered (matcha) green tea?

Those who eat more whole grains have lower risk of dying from cancer and diabetes and tend to live longer overall (http://1.usa.gov/1jNAHz1). See how simply eating more whole grains like rye and lignin-rich flaxseeds might lower cancer risk. Click to see video:
The lignans in rye could explain why rye intake is associated with lower breast and prostate cancer risk.

Consumption of caffeinated and artificially sweetened soft drinks was found to be associated with premature puberty in girls (http://1.usa.gov/1Jd3IA9). What other dietary risks factors may affect premature puberty in girls?
The early onset of puberty in girls associated with animal protein consumption may be due to endocrine disrupting chemical pollutants in the meat supply.

Higher TMAO blood levels associated with are than 3 times the odds of cardiovascular disease (http://1.usa.gov/1QX8YKF). Find out ways to reduce TMAO production by limiting excess choline and carnitine intake. Click to see video:
Expanding on the subject of my upcoming appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, a landmark new article in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that choline in eggs, poultry, dairy and fish produces the same toxic TMAO as carnitine in red meat, which may help explain plant-based protection from heart disease and prostate cancer.
