By Sayer Ji • Originally posted on GreenMedInfo.com Boosting testosterone has become all the rage today, but unless you activate your body's innate ability to do it naturally you will have to face the possibility of serious side effects. As men reach their mid-forties their testosterone levels begin to decline, with approximately 1% to 2% decrease in measurable blood levels annually, and then dropping off precipitously after age 60 into full blown "andro-pause."  This ever-increasing decline can have a wide range of adverse effects, both physically and psychologically, ranging from muscle loss to insulin resistance, low libido to depression. Today, an increasing...

It has been several years since Jose Navarro, a federal poultry inspector died at the age of 37, a victim of increasingly noxious chemicals used in poultry and meat production. Chemicals like ammonia, chlorine and peracetic acid are frequently employed to kill aggressive bacteria in meat and poultry.

So July 4th is a BBQ day, right? Do you think hot dogs, hamburgers, and horrible warm pasta salad made with mayonnaise? The Standard American Diet — SAD for short, and in no such coincidence — is never more pronounced than during the summer BBQ extravaganza. But it doesn’t have to be like this!

By Michele Simon • Originally posted on Eat Drink Politics New Report from Eat Drink Politics asks: Has the American Society for Nutrition Lost All Credibility? In my new report, I expose the American Society for Nutrition (ASN), the nation’s leading authority of nutrition scientists and researchers, for its cozy relationships with the likes of PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Nestle, McDonalds, Monsanto, Mars, and even the Sugar Association. Such conflicts of interest are similar to those exposed in my previous report about the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
