Different species of mushrooms have valuable benefits.

Understanding how food interacts with our bodies and the role it plays in healing various health conditions can be helpful. Whether food is used as part of a medical treatment or a prevention-focused diet, knowledge is power. Though some may disregard medicinal food, medical researchers have proven how prescriptive diets have been used to minify health risks. One such functional food is mushrooms. There are currently 38,000 discovered and classified species of mushrooms that hold medicinal benefits.

ZeroHedge – JPMorgan Blows Up The Fed’s “We Can ‘Control’ The Crash With Reverse Repo” Plan – 13 July 2014

ZeroHedgeThis is a big deal. On the heels of our pointing out the surge in Treasury fails (following extensive detailing of the market’s massive collateral shortage at the hands of the unmerciful Fed’s buying programs), various ‘strategists’ wrote thinly-veiled attempts to calm market concerns that the repo market (the glur that holds risk assets together) was FUBAR. Even the Fed itself sent missives opining that their cunning Reverse-Repo facility would solve the problems and everyone should go back to the important business of BTFATHing… They are wrong – all of them – as yet again the Fed shows its ignorance of how the world works (just as it did in 2007/8 with the same shadow markets). As JPMorgan warns (not some tin-foil-hat-wearing blogger with an ax to grind) “the Fed’s reverse repo facility does little to alleviate the UST scarcity induced by the Federal Reserves’ QE programs coupled with a declining government deficit.” The end result, they note, is “higher susceptibility of the repo market to collateral shortages” and thus dramatically higher financial fragility – the opposite of what the Fed ‘hopes’ for.

NaturalNews – Ethan A. Huff – Scientists Ready To Create Genetically Modified Babies From Three Parents – 13 July 2014

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Pending approval from the appropriate regulatory authorities, biotech scientists are gearing up to start manufacturing genetically modified (GM) human babies within the next two years, according to BBC News. A novel form of in vitro fertilization (IVF) that involves combining the eggs of two different women with the sperm of one man could soon be made publicly available as a way to prevent deadly mitochondrial diseases.

The body’s energy powerhouses, mitochondria are absolutely essential for life. When they don’t work properly, a person is unable to manufacture enough energy to function properly, leading to muscle weakness and loss, heart failure, blindness, and potentially even death. But reconstructing human embryos using science could provide a viable solution. Continue reading

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Many of us who value health have resigned ourselves to forgoing the convenience and speed of fast food.

Despite the stigma associated with this American institution, a trio of enterprising young men have set out to shatter the myth of unhealthy fast food with their own brand of earth-friendly fare. Enter: Sweetgreen.

Americans Outraged As Illegals To Get Free Healthcare, Schooling And Legal Representation – 13 July 2014

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) President Barack Obama is doubling down on outraging a sizeable portion of the American public through policies he is approving regarding the treatment and handling of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months.

In recent days, the president has requested $3.7 billion in new spending — spending that is not offset by budget cuts elsewhere, meaning that it would add to the deficit that our children and their children will have to deal with — to “pay for schooling, health care and lawyers for the unaccompanied illegal immigrant children surging across the border,” The Washington Times reports. White House officials have asked Congress to expedite the request. Continue reading
