Bacteria thought to play a part in breaking down the toxic chemicals introduced by smoking were found to be much less prevalent in smokers' mouths than non-smokers' mouths, while bacteria that causes tooth decay was much higher. One more reason not to smoke.

Don't you think article is crying out for one of those horrible 'buzzy' headlines like, "They switched from butter to corn oil - you'll never believe what the autopsies revealed!" Sadly, that headline would be accurate in this case. The unpublished 5-year study back in 1968 showed that the participants who switched from saturated fats to corn oil had increased risk of heart attack and death.
Butter isn't health food, but researchers have unearthed more evidence that replacing it with vegetable oils does not decrease risk of heart disease.

Huge multi-country study on the risks associated with sitting. This study supports others that have shown a link between sitting and an increase in risk factors for dying prematurely. More studies still need to be done but in the meantime… stand up, go for a walk, get a drink of water, anything to keep from sitting for long lengths of time.
Replacing sitting time with just standing or moderate physical activity could counteract the effect.

Because this study was done on mice, we will have to wait and see how women who used anti-depressants during their nursing years transition into menopause. Making sure you are doing all you can to take care of your bones during pregnancy and nursing is good practice regardless.
Antidepressant use with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) during pregnancy and breast-feeding causes decreased bone density in mothers that may put them at higher risk of broken bones later in life, a new study suggests.

One more study linking chemicals in plastics to a rise in endocrine health issues, this time in female infertility. My advice – use glass and stainless steel as much as possible for food storage containers and water travel containers. https://chriskresser.com/what-the-plastics-industry-doesnt-want-you-to-know/
More and more women are finding it difficult to get pregnant, with mounting evidence suggesting chemicals used in plasticisers and pesticides are responsible. The consequences are estimated to cost the EU €1.4 billion per year. EurActiv Germany reports.

Study confirms that for some people, a VLC (very low carb) diet can reverse type II diabetes permanently - even after returning to more normal calorie diet.

There are several aspects of our current lifestyle that contribute to disease; the widespread consumption of food toxins is by far the greatest offender. Avoid those toxins and you increase dramatically your chances for a long healthy life.

The benefits, physically and emotionally, of exercising have been well studied, but how does a dose of aerobic activity affect our psyche? This study found that physical activity may help there too.
We’re all aware of the physical advantages of exercising and the emotional advantages have also been well-documented. But how much do we know about the psychological impact of engaging in physical activity? This study demonstrates the positive impact of acute aerobic exercise on individuals experiencing emotion regulation difficulties.

Interesting. This study found that sugar helps calm a stressed out brain, which may make it all the more addictive to those that suffer chronic stress.

I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being. Thanks, Luz Daugherty
