The prospect of caring for a loved one afflicted with Alzheimer's disease is one of the scariest scenarios that can confront any individual or family. I'd say that the emotional aspect of caring can be more heart-wrenching and devastating than the physical.

In a new study, conducted by Spanish researchers, which examined 1,249 subjects of both sexes, it was found out that regular beer drinkers had less body fat, were less likely to be obese, and suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure.
But before you start jumping with joy, this is not for Bacchanalian revelers. Men in the study enjoyed the benefits with up to 3 bottles, cans, or mugs a day. Women should call it a night after having two drinks. So, you see, moderation, as in everything else, plays a very important role here.

Step outside the box, look beyond conventional treatments.... if you want any success in your fight against cancer. This is the gist of the best selling and highly recommended book, Cancer: Step Outside The Box, which is read in over 50 countries.
Cancer survivors credit their survival to the wealth of information the book offers. It is full of potent, non-toxic, and well-proven alternatives for treating as well as preventing cancer, including the most advanced treatment protocols, which mainstream doctors probably do not know, because they were trained in medical schools to confine their cancer treatments to chemotherapy, radiation, and radical surgery.

This is an appeal to everyone to help in this campaign to keep Intravenous Ascorbic Acid [IAA] in the market.
It has been common knowledge for years now, especially in alternative medicine circles, that mega-doses of Vitamin C effectively kill some types of cancer cells without harming the healthy cells. [read: Vitamin C Cancer Therapy's Bright Hope]

Here's another good reason why you should patronize Vitamin C. Aside from its bright hope in cancer treatment, an exciting discovery has been made showing that Vitamin C is highly effective in slowing down the aging process.
In a previous post, I mentioned that aging results from the shortening of the telomeres, the protective caps of our DNA, as our cells undergo division. When the telomeres are too short already, the cells can longer divide, and thus, die. [read: Telomeres Aging And Cancer Link]
Cancer is a disease of pandemic proportions, and one of the reasons being linked to this is the widespread deficiency in Vitamin C of the world's human population.
It's unfortunate that humans, primates, fruit bats, and guinea pigs, are incapable of producing their own vitamin C. All other animals have this capacity. Vitamin C is necessary for us to live, and we are totally dependent on our diet for it. This fact emphasizes the relevance and importance of the role of proper nutrition in our health.

For decades, Vitamin C supplementation has been generally associated with preventing catching colds. Remember the babies being given the daily doses of liquid Vitamin C, and adolescents and adults taking those ascorbic acid tablets as a protection against getting those nasty colds?
Results of years of researches on the other health benefits of Vitamin C have been creeping out to the public, foremost of which is Vitamin C's very promising outlook as far as cancer prevention, and even, remission, are concerned. These results are being achieved with massive doses of intravenous Vitamin C, much way beyond the recommended daily allowance.

No, this article has nothing to do with the use of the word "nuts" in the epic WWII battle, also known as the Ardennes Offensive. I mentioned this because if you searched "nuts" in the internet, you'll come up with websites about the connection of "nuts" to the Battle of the Bulge. Instead, this has something to do with a lot of people's battle of the bulge, around the waistline.
You see, nuts are rich in protein and healthy monounsaturated fats. And eating lots of nuts will not result in high caloric intake as 10% of it just passes through the digestive tract unabsorbed.
Eight years ago, the US FDA acknowledged the health benefits of nuts and their role in the prevention of heart disease. Health claims were approved for seven nuts, namely: walnuts, almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, and some pine nuts.
