Can Beer Prevent Cancer?

The chemical properties of beer may help in the battle against cancer, due to acids in hops that may have both anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.

The plant that adds flavor, color and bitterness to beer also produces a primary compound that thwarts cancer cells, and two important derivatives of the compound do as well, new research at Oregon State University shows.

Reporting on a number of studies, the Telegraph points out that beer has been found to reduce the risk of kidney stones, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, while also strengthening bones, treating cataracts and curing insomnia. Continue reading

Health Benefits of Chives – Cancer Prevention and More

Chives are far more than the little green bits on your baked potato—they have numerous health benefits that make them a worthy addition to a variety of dishes. Add to that the fact that they are easy to grow and maintain, and it’s obvious that chives deserve a place at your table.

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are not the same as scallions and green onions (Allium fistulosum), though they are all in the onion or allium family, and are frequently confused. They are a perennial herb, meaning they grow back each spring, and have been cultivated for hundreds of years – not only for their culinary properties, but for their health benefits as well.

Daubenmire: Are We Eating Our Children?

This one is not an easy one for me to write. It might be even more difficult for you to read. I know we all run a risk if you simply laugh off what I am about to share with you today.

Functional recycling: Spent coffee grounds can make soil more fertile

Once you are done with your cup of brewed coffee, what do you do with the used grounds? Do you throw them away as garbage or consign them to the compost heap? Spanish researchers believe that using spent coffee grounds as a means of organic soil amendment will offer many benefits in agriculture and for the environment.

Coffee is a very popular and healthy drink. Its heavy global consumption produces six million tons of used grounds each year. A lot of this biological residue ends up in landfills, to rot alongside the rest of the garbage. Continue reading

POISON: Canola oil is the margarine of yesteryear…

… for uneducated health enthusiasts who have no idea it clogs blood and promotes dementia

What kind of food never spoils? You get one guess. That’s right – the kind you should never eat. So then why do you think most health food stores use canola oil mixed into nearly every packaged and jarred food on their shelves? The honest answer is they’re trying to make more money. Insects won’t go near canola oil – there’s a sign not to eat it right there. Its shelf life runs close to forever. Mix canola oil into salad dressings, mayonnaise, potato salad, macaroni salad, hummus, cereal, or corn chips and their shelf life extends almost indefinitely. Continue reading
