Since When Did Dessert Become Breakfast?

I actually can't remember a time when people didn't have dessert for breakfast, but I didn't realise it at the time.

When I was a child my standard breakfast was either a fried egg on toast or some wheatbix with milk and sugar. Looking back my breakfast wasn't perfect but for the times it was pretty good.

I have to admit being a little envious of the children of some friends of my parents. They had either coco pops or sugar frosties for breakfast and access to cola at the family business. But they have certainly paid the price with poor health.

Even today we think of dessert as something just a bit, or a lot naughty. It is sweet, rich and often comes in a large serve at the point of the meal when you really don't need more food.

But here's the problem. Dessert is often a combination of a big serve of sugar, fructose, gluten and vegetable oils. A truly disastrous combination of three of the worst food groups. Driving heart disease, diabetes and obesity to just name…

The Real Dangers of Sugar

How healthy is our food nowadays?

As modern society continues to find ways to make food production cheaper and faster, the quality of our food also continues to decline.

There is a very real reason why there are now advocacies against processed food. It seems that food manufacturers have completely forgotten their ethical obligation to consumer health by ignoring warnings from the medical establishment about adding too much sugar and preservatives to food.

What's happening to processed food?

These past few years, consumer wellness organizations have monitored a steady climb in the amount of additives that manufacturers add to common food items and beverages like bread, soda and even yogurt.

That's why it's best to keep away from any food or beverage that lasts more than a week in the cupboard. Imagine what they put in food that can last for 2 years in storage!

How much sugar are we really consuming?

The amount of sugar present in our food nowadays is especially worrying because …

Stem Cells Have a Neat Trick to Prevent Tissue Scarring

Aging is a natural process that no one can deny. But how about a treatment that will not only keep your muscles flexible during the normal aging process, but also treat various muscle wasting diseases? Well, this is no more a mere concept. The Stanford University School of Medicine researchers have discovered that stem cells, present in the muscle tissues, can prevent tissue scarring, clinically termed as fibrosis.

Thomas Rando, who lead the study, said, "Fibrosis occurs in many degenerative diseases and also in normal aging," he added, "It negatively impacts muscle regeneration by altering the stem cell niche and inhibiting the stem cell function. In addition, as more scarring occurs, muscles become stiff and can't contract and relax smoothly."

The team tried to understand how normal muscle tissues regenerate under usual circumstances and at the same time how they respond to injuries. During the research, they concentrated on fibro-adipogenic progenitors (FAPs),…

What Are Your Treatment Options for Peripheral Neuropathy?

If you suspect you have or have been diagnosed with neuropathy, also called peripheral neuropathy, you know it is not pleasant. Suffering from burning, shooting or electric shock type pain, especially when you are inactive is a common occurrence. In my opinion, the worst symptom of neuropathy is the inability to have a great sense of balance. When your feet can't accurately sense the surface you are walking on, you risk falling.

Neuropathy can be a painful, life altering condition. Selecting the proper treatment can lead to progression or regression. You need to choose wisely.

Let's face it, neuropathy can be terrible; I have seen people in my office who can't wear shoes, only flip-flops, due to the amount of foot pain they agonize with daily. Others have given up driving due to their inability to feel the brake and accelerator pedals. Losing your freedom is one of the worst outcomes of progressive neuropathy.

Neuropathy is a progressive problem if the cause is not determined

Why Your Dreams Help You Change Your Beliefs

Many people still believe that Darwin's theory of evolution is meaningful until today, especially atheists. However, many scientists have already showed us very clearly all the flaws in this theory thanks to recent scientific discoveries.

The fact that most people want to believe that nothing has any meaning and that we are alive in order to be happy however we can means that everyone's opinion is distorted by their desire to believe in pleasant beliefs.

They offer strong resistance to other beliefs or to scientific evidence that proves that these beliefs are unrealistic, and they don't want to better investigate this matter.

They believe that they have the right to believe in whatever they want and they insist on defending their beliefs without wanting to verify if they really are right. They do everything they can to block their enemies and keep defending their erroneous beliefs.

So, how can humanity evolve?

We block our own development with our idiotic attitude because we do…
