Chronic sinusitis (also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, or CRS) is one of the most common human diseases, affecting 1 in 7 American adults. And like many other modern, chronic conditions, its prevalence appears to be increasing. Find out why probiotics may represent the future of treating chronic sinus problems. http://bit.ly/2d14Ttj

Research continues to find correlations between toxic air pollution and increased risk of type 2 diabetes. "Whether the disease becomes manifest and when this occurs is not only due to lifestyle or genetic factors but also due to traffic-related air pollution," said Professor Annette Peters, director of the Institute of Epidemiology II at Helmholtz Zentrum München.
Exposure to air pollution at the place of residence increases the risk of developing insulin resistance as a pre-diabetic state of type 2 diabetes, report scientists.

Curious to know if the “5 Second Rule” is actually true when it comes to dropped food? You (and your kids) may be surprised by what the research below found out. Hint – It depends on the kind of food.
A new study complicates the "five-second rule," the widely accepted idea that it's okay to scoop up fallen food and eat it if you're quick enough.

These studies are useless until we don't understand bacterial ecosystems. It's time to get rid of x=disease

Can accepting your chronic illness help you heal? I believe so. Ironically, it can be the avoidance of feeling the grief associated with the lost dreams, the fear that we may never get well or that we won’t survive, and the isolation that comes from living with chronic illness that prevents us from taking appropriate action. http://bit.ly/2cN9jAw
Cultivating acceptance is absolutely essential for anyone living with chronic illness or pain.

Of all the types of social support, emotional support is the most consistent predictor of better health. More specifically, social support that engenders feelings of intimacy and belonging have the greatest health benefits. Pg. 265 - The Paleo Cure

I agree. Where to begin?

The FDA’s ban on 13 chemicals found in antibacterial soap is just the first step. More needs to be done if we hope to restore our microbiomes and our health. Researchers in the study below found “for the first time a link between antimicrobial substances such as triclosan in indoor dust and levels of antibiotic-resistance genes, which can transfer from one bacterial cell to another.”

Interesting. This study found that Vitamin D supplementation reduced asthma attacks requiring emergency room visits by 60%. More research is needed to understand exactly why this occurs, but it seems to offer a bit of hope for those suffering from mild to moderate asthma.
Regular vitamin D supplements may lower the number and severity of asthma attacks.

Are fall allergies hitting you hard? Read on to learn how disruption of your resident microbes might be associated with your allergies, and what steps you can take to alleviate your worst symptoms.
Every mucosal surface on your body is colonized by a distinct group of microbes, including your gut, lungs, and nasal passages. Far from causing harm, these microbes “teach” your immune system to tolerate dietary proteins and other harmless allergens in the environment. Read on to learn how disruption of your resident microbes might be associated with your allergies, and learn what steps you can take to alleviate your worst symptoms.

More on the gut-brain axis. Paul Whiteley takes a look at why there seems to be a high rate of constipation in patients suffering from schizophrenia and how gut health may play a role.

Think your kids take too many selfies? According to researchers at the University of California-Irvine, it might be good for their emotional well-being. This study found that “regularly snapping selfies with your smartphone and sharing photos with your friends can help make you a happier person.”
Regularly snapping selfies with your smartphone and sharing photos with your friends can help make you a happier person, according to computer scientists. In a first-of-its-kind study published just before back-to-school season, the authors found that students can combat the blues with some simple, deliberate actions on their mobile devices.

Lack of sleep may have a big impact on our ability to read social cues accurately, control over reactions and identify risky thoughts and behaviors. Matthew Walker, professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, has conducted imaging studies “that have uncovered patterns of brain activity believed to be behind the emotional volatility caused by lack of sleep.”
People who haven’t slept enough have a harder time accurately reading emotions and related problems.

Avoiding your workouts? Finding a physical activity that you enjoy and receive intrinsic benefits from may help change that. The study below found that “if exercise is intrinsically rewarding—it makes you feel good or reduces stress—people will respond automatically to a cue—like a morning alarm—and not have to convince themselves to work out.”
The trick to making exercise a habit is to find a way to enjoy it. Psychologists call this intrinsic reward and here's why it works.

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

Save your time and money. God complex without the God skills. His staff reflects him...arrogant and incompetent. Very disappointed, Id recommend everyone from the Paleo community or AIMC stay away
