The Illusion of Choices in Choosing a Restaurant - Toxic Factory Food from a Handful of Suppliers

There are dozens of chain restaurants from which we can choose when we go out to eat. Some are fast-food eateries with counters for ordering, and others are traditional sit-down table service restaurants. Probably McDonalds is the most well-known fast-food chain, but dozens of other chains dot the landscape of towns and cities throughout America.

As of 2012, there were 263,944 fast food restaurants in America with a combined revenue of well over $100 billion.

If we set aside all the reasons for eatng in specific fast-food restaurants, and only focus on the quality of food that is served, then where should we eat? Which restaurants offer the least toxic food?

It might appear that we have dozens of choices, but this is actually an illusion. The difference between one fast-food restaurant and the next is negligible when considering the high levels of toxic ingredients that are in the food.

Woman Finds Relief for Hypothyroidism with Coconut Oil - Drops Medication

I must post about my amazing experience with Virgin Coconut Oil.

I am 35 years old and severely hypothyroid. I was on thyroxine at very high does for 5 years before I started looking for an alternative. My doctor said my levels were alright, however I was still extremely lethargic and suffered from “brain fog”.
I started out taking 2 tablespoons a day and instantly felt the effects. It was so energizing that I couldn't take it before bed or I wouldn't sleep.

88 Year Old Woman Recovering from Alzheimer’s and Diabetes Using Coconut Oil

I brought my 88 year old mother out of 7 years of nursing home neglect/abuse on February 14, 2016. I've been studying the effects of coconut oil and Alzheimer's disease.

She was taking 4 units Novolog insulin at meals and 10 units Lantas at night. After applying coconut oil all over her body, I noticed her sugars were continuing to lower without insulin shots. The first 2 days, I saturated her skin and added 1 teaspoon in protein shakes. Her sugars went from 300's to 140.

My mother is diagnosed with stage 6 Alzheimer's. She is speaking better and I gave her a Bible story book to read me yesterday and she could read it through with exception of a few words. My mother could not do this one week ago or for the last two years.

She is remembering people and things that have not been spoken of for years. I can now show her pictures and she can name people, even her children now. I'm thrilled!

Study: Coconut Oil’s Lauric Acid Reduces High Blood Pressure

There have been numerous studies on lauric acid for various health supporting factors. Did you know that virgin coconut oil is 50 percent or more lauric acid? So whatever healthy attributes lauric acid contains so does coconut oil, and more.
And more will be explained later in this article. For now we’ll focus on coconut oil’s major component, lauric acid, and a recent animal study with dramatic results discovered for reducing hypertension (high blood pressure) and oxidative stress.

Why Canola Oil is Not the Healthy Oil You’ve Been Led to Believe

Can a “health food” eaten by millions really be dangerous?

Canola oil and its derivative, rapeseed, are primary suspects for the exceptionally high incidence of Asian lung cancer.

According to mainstream media though, canola oil is “good for the heart” offering viable monounsaturated fats similar to olive oil. Sadly, much of what we hear in the mainstream media and various “health” blogs has been influenced by aggressive marketing tactics of big food companies.

For this reason, it is critical to know what websites to avoid and where you can go to get trustworthy and accurate health information.

In order to understand how canola oil came into the marketplace, some historical background is needed.

Study: Coconut Oil Improves Cognitive Functioning in Alzheimer’s Patients

Health Impact News has been a leader in the alternative media publishing research and testimonials supporting the positive use of coconut oil with people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. These remarkable stories of families seeing dramatic improvement from Alzheimer's and dementia are documented at CoconutOil.com. In many cases, adding several spoonfuls of coconut oil a day to the diet of one suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia has resulted in memories returning, the ability to once again converse with friends and loved ones, etc. (Read the testimonials.)

However, pharma-based physicians and groups have largely condemned the use of coconut oil, stating that all the evidence is "anecdotal," lacking peer-reviewed scientific research. Of course coconut oil is a natural food, with virtually no risk or side effects, and funding for research on a natural food is difficult to come by when no product can be patented as a result of the research, such as lucrative pharmaceutical drugs. As we have stated in the past, the lack of scientific research on coconut oil and Alzheimer's should not stop people from trying it.

Some are taking notice and beginning to publish studies, however, so the claim that coconut oil improving Alzheimer's lacks scientific support may not be true much longer. A clinical trial in Spain was published this month (December 2015) studying the effects of coconut oil on Alzheimer's, and the results were very promising. Another study in Florida is in process and should be published in 2016.

Study: Candida Infections Can Be Controlled with Coconut Oil

A recent study from the University of Tufts shows that a diet high in coconut oil can control Candida yeast infections. In addition to this study and other previously published studies, there have been many anecdotal reports on curing Candida by including large amounts of coconut oil in the diet. The studies also confirm coconut oil's efficacy for curbing Candida without side effects from the oil itself, a claim anti-fungal pharmaceuticals cannot make.

Cholesterol-lowering Statins: One of the Greatest Failures of Modern Medicine

Let’s look at statin guidelines. The new guidelines recommend nearly half of Americans over the age of 40—more than 50 million people—may qualify for taking a statin drug in order to lower their heart attack risk. I have written in my blog posts, newsletter, and in my book, The Statin Disaster, that statin drugs fail nearly 99% who take them—they neither prevent heart attacks nor have they been shown to help people live longer.

Where is the evidence that statins help lower coronary calcium levels? There isn’t any. In fact, the opposite is true: research has shown that statin use actually increases the deposition of calcium in coronary arteries.

Yes, you read that right. In fact, researchers reported, “…coronary artery calcium progression was fastest among participants using statins…” This wasn’t the only study to report that fact. Other researchers have concluded, “Independent of their plaque-regressive effects, statins promote coronary atheroma calcification.”

Folks, evidence-based medicine should be used and embraced. It is too bad that conventional medicine fails to use it when it comes to statins (as well as many other drug therapies). The evidence behind the statin studies should expose statins as one of the greatest failures in modern medicine.

Coconut Oil: Research on the health benefits of coconut oil.
Introduction
Coconut Health brings you the top research and news regarding the health benefits of coconut oil. Coconut Health is brought to you by Brian and Marianita Shilhavy. Unlike many people who write about  coconut oil by simply reading about it, Marianita Shilhavy actually grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines and in a culture that consumed significant amounts of coconut fat in their diet. She later went on to earn her degree in nutrition and worked as a nutritionist in the Philippines. Brian Shilhavy also lived in the Philippines for several years with Marianita and their 3 children observing firsthand the differences between the diet and health of the younger generation and those of Marianita’s parents’ generation still consuming a traditional diet. This led to years of studying Philippine nutrition and dietary patterns first hand while living in a rural farming community in the Philippines. They are authors of the best-selling book: Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours! 

CoconutOil.com is the Internet's oldest and most up-to-date resource on the health benefits of coconut oil, and CoconutDiet.com contains the Coconut Diet forums in archive, with the historical records of the Coconut Oil Revolution, containing thousands of coconut oil users' discussions starting in the year 2000.
