A majority of Britons, 60 per cent, have unhealthy cholesterol levels
Managing this does not have to be hard and including these foods is a start
Add ‘smart foods’, fibres, nuts, soya, healthy oils and oats to your diet
Your cholesterol is too high. Well, perhaps not specifically you, but thousands of Britons have this news broken to them by doctors every day. We all have an amount of this special type of [...]

Grocery stores may still be stocked with food and most Americans are still able to keep their family’s fed, but with 50 million Americans requiring government assistanceto do so and prices on a seemingly never ending rise, how long will it be before the situation becomes unmanageable?
“The global food crisis you need to prepare for is now imminent.
For the past six years the world has consumed more food [...]
Doctors told Allan Taylor, 78, in April that his cancer couldn’t be treated and had spread from his colon to his small intestine
In August the retired oil rig engineer from Middlesbrough got another letter – to say he was cancer-free
He puts the change down to his new diet, which he adopted after looking up ‘colon cancer cures’ on the internet
A grandfather, who was told by doctors that his cancer was [...]
This is an important update on the U.S. drought of 2012, the combined record-setting July land temperatures, and their impact on food prices, water availability, energy, and even U.S. GDP.
Even though the mainstream media seems to have lost some interest in the drought, we should keep it front and center in our minds, as it has already led to sharply higher grain prices, increased gasoline costs (via the pass-through [...]
(PreventDisease) – If you love cooking your meat on a pan, beware. Meats fried at higher temperatures, especially in pans and on gas stoves, increases the risk of advanced forms of cancer by as much as 40 percent suggests new research.
The most surprising outcome of the study is that less than 2 servings per week will increase cancer risk. “We found that men who ate more than 1.5 servings of [...]
Xenobiotics and Xenoestrogens are chemicals in our environment and in our food supply that have a hormone-like activity. There is mounting evidence that exposure to these chemicals may be a significant cause of breast cancer, the decline in male sperm production, testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and other serious health conditions.
Nearly all xenobiotics are derived from a petroleum source. They are found in literally thousands of products that we use [...]
9:44 a.m. | Updated FORT MYERS, Fla. – The mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater presented a challenge to both President Obama andMitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, on Friday: Is it O.K. to continue campaigning in the midst of a national tragedy, and if so, how does that change the message?
Mr. Obama chose to cut short his campaign trip here and return to Washington after addressing the tragedy before the audience that came here initially expecting [...]
As the The Drudge Report-drives speculation that Condoleezza Rice is now a contender in the Republican veepstakes, surrogates and supporters in Mitt Romney’s orbit say Rice electrified Romney’s circle with a speech she delivered last month at the candidate’s closed-door fundraising retreat in Park City.
Rice’s forceful, and surprisingly partisan 13-minute address — audio of which has been obtained by BuzzFeed — won her two standing ovations from the gathering of big-money donors and [...]

Eating foods that are high in saturated fat — red meat, butter, and other animal products — clog your arteries and increase your risk for heart disease and stroke. Until now, that’s all we thought they did. Now it seems that saturated fats may also be linked to how efficiently our brains work.
In a paper published today in Annals of Neurology, a team of scientists analyzed [...]
This is commentary from political blogger and cartoonist Rob Tornoe.
Over the weekend, Gov. Chris Christie once again force-fed a conservative crowd a healthy dose of red meat, saying President Obama was “posing and preening” instead of working to resolve the pressing issues facing the country.
It struck me as odd he would use that particular attack line, considering Christie has traveled across the country to put himself in the spotlight as [...]
“Saturday Night Live” comedic legend Jon Lovitz is doubling down on his harsh criticism of Barack Obama’s alleged wealth confiscation and redistribution policies, claiming the president is lying to Americans.
“The President is lying to get votes … it’s obvious and transparent,” Lovitz, a self-proclaimed Democrat who voted for Obama in 2008, said on his Twitter feed Saturday night.
Lovitz was responding to criticism from those apparently in his own party, after [...]
The onward march of the Chinese consumer continues, with China overtaking the U.S. as the biggest grocery market in the world in 2011, according to new research out of the United Kingdom.
The Chinese grocery sector was worth $970 billion (607 billion pounds) at the end of 2011, while the U.S. market came in at $913.5 billion (572 billion pounds), research by food industry analysts IGD showed.
The figures come at a [...]
Normally, I’d be continuing my ongoing series on the evolutionary history of the human brain. However, there is yet another red meat scare story making the rounds — and many readers have asked me to analyze it. Should we really be eating less red meat?
I don’t like to spend my time debunking specific studies — because as I said in a previous article about bad science, it’s like trying [...]
Columnist-cum-Presidential roaster Ann Coulter took to the CPAC stage Friday, where she spoke at length about President Barack Obama.
She compared the media’s positive take on unemployment numbers under President Obama to having someone expect you to praise a doctor who treated you for a fever of 102, brought your fever up to 104, and then — over three years — brought it down to 103. (That’s a sneak peek at the future of health care [...]
Once in a while I’ll send Dave Cohen(of his blog DOTE) a story that catches my eye and he’ll turn an entire post out of it. He’s a really good person, despite appearing short-tempered and gruff with some of the commenters on his site. That CBS article referenced in his post today caught my eye a few days ago and I messaged it to him on google chat. What got [...]
ABC News’ Jon Garcia and Devin Dwyer report:
PHILADEPHIA – President Obama served up some political red meat to campaign contributors in Philly tonight, bashing his Republican challengers while picking up more than a million dollars for his campaign and the Democratic party.
“This campaign is at its early stages, I’ve got a day job, I’ve got other things to do,” Obama told about 800 supporters at a downtown hotel ballroom. “But [...]
(CNN) — Was Barack Obama really born in America?
A new CNN investigation reveals what most analysts have been saying since the “birther” controversy erupted during the 2008 presidential campaign: Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961. Period.
While the president has made light of the controversy, the question remains political red meat for some of his critics. A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll showed that nearly [...]
Donald Trump has what every presidential wannabe craves: very deep pockets, universal name recognition and a ready-made campaign slogan. Imagine Trump telling President Obama, “You’re Fired!”
In recent weeks the brash businessman has made all the moves of someone mulling a White House run, from granting interviews to the political press to giving a red-meat speech in Washington. On Monday, Trump even dispatched an aide to [...]
For folks tired of milquetoast consensus predictions, there’s a ton of red meat in this weeken’s Barron’s interview with star DoubleLine bond manager Jeff Gundlach.
Gundlach, whose returns over the last several years are basically matched by nobody in the bond industry, sees trouble all around.
First in muni land, he expects massive carnage, and is already setting up a fund to buy closed-end muni funds in the next year when [...]
Ron Paul should not run for president. Â He simply can’t win. Â I love the man and his philosophies, but he has always been a bit of a goof on stage. Â His ideas are often brilliant, but his delivery and stage presence are terrible, and in a media-driven election world, I have to, unfortunately, agree with The Donald (who sucked) that he is unelectable. [...]
Subsidies cause more of everything else they support. Have the laws of economics been suspended for unemployment?
With a rise in the U.S. jobless rate the unfortunate but likely reality of the move to fund unemployment benefits for another 13 months. Maybe for a few, Peter Coy counters, but it will also boost growth – a worthy tradeoff.
More jobless benefits, more unemployment.
A likely rise in [...]
