Laryngopharyngeal Reflux, also known as LPR, is known as ‘silent reflux’ because it doesn’t have the same uncomfortable symptoms as its more well-known cousin, Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
LPR manifests in other symptoms that at first do not appear to be any sort of GI problem. Many believe they are suffering from allergies or colds.

Tracking which countries are eating the most animals paints a fascinating picture of global development powered by China and India's ravenous demand...
As these countries increase the consumption of animal protein/fat etc. they will join the Americans who are fat, sick and nearly dead who consume too much protein and animal products. It is an insane spiral away from these countries more traditional diets of plant based foods and will ultimately have a disastrous impact lie it has in the USA and other Western Countries. As McDonalds spawns more unhealthy eating habits, the World will become sicker and disease ridden as immune systems crash and burn.
The alkaline diet is perfect for losing weight and staying awake but it can also reduce aches and pains, including backache

Nutrition and fitness consultant at Active and Well, Seb Kowy, talks about setting realist health goals and not believing all the diet and fitness hype in the magazines.
"Whether you are training for weight loss or muscles gain you will be limited by your genetic make-up, training programme and diet.
Thinking about your personal limitations, you can set yourself realistic goals.
How often do we compare ourselves to someone who in our eyes looks 'better' and desperately want to look the same?"
Hallmarks of Cancer 7: Genome Instability and Mutation Scientific American (blog)
All cancers share ten underlying principles, also known as theHallmarks of Cancer. You can read about the first six here. The seventh is defined as genome instability and mutation.
Science World Report The FDA Calls Out Yet Another Food Chemical To Avoid: Acrylamide Forbes Yesterday the FDA released a Consumer Update suggesting that people try to reduce their consumption of a compound in found in well- and over-cooked foods,...
Although this compound is found in many commonly eaten foods such as potatoes, it's mainly over-cooking them that increases the acrylamide.
Well... Healthy food is too expensive... cheap food is bad for you... Might have to stop eating altogether...
:O They cooking with a potent chemical like acrylamide, which is used for advance research techniques like western blot... This is a real Junk Food!
According to a recent studypublished in Science and conducted by Tyler-Smith and others, the sources of cancer most often lie in the rest of the genome, once referred to as junk DNA.
Cancer is, in other words, a very important needle in a very large haystack. The study also helpfully provides a roadmap to the spots in the genetic haystack that are most likely to give rise to cancer.
By comparing data from two open-access genetic databases, ENCODE and the 1000 Genomes project, Tyler-Smith and his colleagues were able to identify parts of the non-coding genome that rarely show mutations.
This article also contains a beautiful picture of cancer cells.
A diet rich in wheat flour and animal protein produces an acidic environment in the body that worsens with age as kidney function declines.

WATCH SUPER-SIZING WELFARE COSTSDemocracy Now, October 18, 2013LOW WAGES AT McDONALD'S, BURGER KING COST TAXPAYERS BILLIONS
New research shows more than half of low-wage workers at fast-food restaurants rely on public assistance to survive – a rate double that of the overall workforce. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, low wages in the fast-food industry cost American taxpayers nearly $7 billion every year – that’s more than the entire annual budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A companion report by the National Employment Law Project found McDonald’s alone costs Americans $1.2 billion annually by paying its workers insufficient wages. Last year the top 10 largest fast-food companies alone made more than $7.4 billion in profits.http://www.democracynow.org/2013/10/18/super_sizing_welfare_costs_low_wages

The Importance of Antioxidants: Another Reason To Eat Loads Of Fruit.
So apparently antioxidants are really, really important for maintaining a healthy life, who knew? Ensuring a good amount of antioxidants in your diet can reduce the chances of cancer, lower high blood pressure, improve wrinkles and help your heart stay healthy amongst many other benefits. They’re job is to fight ‘free-radicals’ which are the causes of many health problems and are produced due to stress, processed food, smoking, and if you think those factors don’t apply to you well, they’re even caused by UV light and pollution. These things are like bad movie sequels: everywhere, unstoppable and harmful.
What exactly are free radicals? How do antioxidants protect us from them? This is an excellent infographic that explains it all.
I am so sick of the "grab an apple when you want chocolate!" advice about sugar cravings. This obviously doesn't work -- when I want a brownie, a freaking handful of raisins just simply is not going to cut it.
I'm totally oversimplifying, but here is the basic idea: In Chinese health theory, all foods fall on a spectrum from Yin to Yang, with sugar being on the most extreme Yin end, and animal foods (meat, eggs) and salty foods on the extreme Yang end of the spectrum. As our bodies try to maintain equilibrium, if we eat too many foods on the far end of this seesaw, we then crave foods from the other end...
Food or sugar craving also link to low serotonin level. It's play a key role in controlling your appetite and mood.

It's not something you might think about often, but your pee can tell you a lot about your body. This graphic from Cleveland Clinic shows what different urine hues might say about your health.
In particular, pee color—which ranges from completely clear to golden and even weirder colors like blue or green—can tell you if you're hydrated enough. It's useful to know that if you don't see any color you might be drinking too much water, while the darker yellow and amber colors are signs to go fill your water glass.
Greater investment in research to delay aging may be a 'highly efficient' way to prevent disease, extend healthy life, and improve public health, according to new research.

A Western diet rich in foods that produce acid when broken down can lead to an acid load on the body that is not compensated for by fruit and vegetables.

"There's been a long-held belief that people are worthy of respect when they put others before themselves. People have often evaluated their own worth (and the degree to which they deserve value in society) by their ability to contribute and place the needs of others before themselves."
Along with this belief is the idea that self-care is self-indulgent. However, we can only sustain physical health and emotional health when self-care is a priority. (This is true for both women and men, despite some old-fashioned gender stereotypes!) When your needs are met, and self-care is a non-negotiable priority, you can come to the world as the best version of yourself; fully nourished and ready to nourish those around you.
