Study Proves Sugar Is Responsible for Remarkable Rate of Disease

Refined sugar was not consumed on a daily basis until the past 100 years. Before that, it was a treat afforded only by the very rich as sugar cane was a difficult crop to grow.

New Finding: Broccoli Helps Heal Leaky Gut

Broccoli, a close relative of Brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower, is perhaps most well-known for its chemoprotective properties.

Studies have shown sulforaphane supports normal cell function and division while causing apoptosis (programmed cell death) in colon, prostate, breast and tobacco-induced lung cancer cells, and reducing the number of cancerous liver tumors in mice.

If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich?

How much is a child’s future success determined by innate intelligence? Economist James Heckman says it’s not what people think. He likes to ask educated non-scientists — especially politicians and policy makers — how much of the difference between people’s incomes can be tied to IQ. Most guess around 25 percent, even 50 percent, he says. But the data suggest a much smaller influence: about 1 or 2 percent. So if IQ is only a minor factor in success, what is it that separates the low earners from the high ones?…
