Sunscreen, Vitamin D and Cancer

"It is possible the rise in skin cancer is actually because of the overuse of sunscreen. Vitamin D from the sun plays a part in cancer prevention. I believe the Surgeon General needs to study up on what kinds of cancers are linked to sun exposure. It is the mild kind that is easily treated that people get on exposed skin. Melanomas occur most often on areas that are not exposed, like the bottom of the feet. My husband had a melanoma on his lower back, which has never seen the light of day!

I think the companies that sell sunscreen are stirring up sun phobia. I read they are now recommending we wear sunscreen every day, even if we don't go outside, because we may get reflected light from windows. If we apply the recommended amount, it would take about a bottle per day per person! That is insane." - Judy Barnes Baker, writer, food fanatic and artist

The Health Benefits of Juicing

Juicing is separating the juice of a fruit or vegetable from its fiber. It is a way to receive optimum nutritional benefit from the fruits and vegetables we eat.

Although there is value in eating raw fruits and vegetables, juicing provides a means to ensure we are able to ingest and absorb the maximum amount of nutrients available.

How healthy is juicing? Studies show juice can provide most of the basics of human nutrition, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals, as well as phytonutrients (plant medicines) and enzymes.

A diet without fresh, raw vegetable juices is deficient. This is because when raw vegetables are consumed instead of juices, a large amount of them are used as energy during the digestion and absorption processes.

On the other hand, juices are ingested and assimilated within fifteen minutes. This enables the nutrients to be used almost in their entirety for the nourishment of the cells.

Note: To get the most health benefits, drink the juice …

What's Different Between Vitamins and BarleyLife® Xtra?

It's almost impossible to be healthy without supplementing your regular diet. Yet, roughly half the U.S. population doesn't supplement. Those who do receive few benefits.

It's difficult for your body to use synthetic supplements, created in a laboratory and manufactured in a factory. As little as 4 to 10 percent is absorbed by the body, with the rest passing through the kidneys, making expensive urine.

What matters is how well your body absorbs the nutrients into the bloodstream. It's not what's in your vitamins - it's what vitamins end up in you. This separates a good supplement from the grocery store cheapies.

That's why it's important to get your nutrition from food. The vitamins and minerals found in vegetables and fruits are easily assimilated by your body and in the right proportions.

Yet, not all foods are created equal. In this day of processed foods and depleted soils, it's hard to get the daily nutrition your body needs. Fortunately, ther…

"Grasses are a complete life sustaining food. If you had to choose one food for survival, it ought to be grass. After all, grass is the primary food for domestic and wild grazing animals - cows, horses, goats, sheep, buffalo, deer and giraffes.

More On Resistant Starch

"Resistant starch is a unique kind of starch that humans by and large cannot digest. It’s not a fermentable fiber, but it acts like it. Upon its consumption, resistant starch travels mostly unperturbed through the digestive tract into the colon where the colonic bacteria – who can digest the stuff – feast on it, get frisky, and reproduce. Multiple studies indicate that resistant starch consumption generally leads to an increase in beneficial colonic bacteria and a reduction in pathogenic colonic bacteria, including a boost to bifidobacteria and a decrease in firmicutes." - Mark Sisson, nutrition and fitness blogger and author

How To Stay Well During Summer Vacation

There are more bacteria in your digestive system than there are cells in your body - some 100 trillion. Their total weight is about four pounds - the size of your liver.

Bacteria have both "friendly" and "unfriendly" populations. When unfriendly bacteria dominate, the effects include diarrhea, gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation and malabsorption of nutrients.

There are also illnesses that results from pathogens like E. Coli and Salmonella.

FloraFood® helps restore the healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract, which is necessary for a healthy body. To learn more about FloraFood®, Click Here.

P.S. Did you know friendly bacteria can also benefit weight loss?

Is This In Your Child's Multivitamin?

A few years ago, while out running errands, I ran into the owner of the local health food store. She is super nice and always goes out of her way to be helpful.

I mentioned my wife and I were looking for a multivitamin to give to our son, Brady. She recommended a new product, Nature Plus®. In particular, she said to get Animal Parade®, which is a liquid multivitamin.

I wrote it down, thanked her and went home to do a little research. I quickly found the Nature Plus® website. I then saw the Animal Parade® multivitamin she had recommended. Their website says:

"Animal Parade® Liquid is a great way to give your kids the nutrition they need and the flavor they crave!"

I scrolled down to the bottom of the webpage to look at the list of ingredients. One component is sodium benzoate, which is used as a preservative. After a bit of research, I discovered the following:

"There have been some health concerns about the combination of sodium benzoate and ascorbic acid or vitamin C. Wh…
