Problems with Mercury in Fillings
Mercury fillings are quick and easy to put in. It isn't that composite
materials cost more—they just take longer to make. Not only can dentists
buzz through a lot of mercury amalgam fillings each day, but these
amalgams also require the destruction of quite a lot of good tooth
matter, which sets you up for more dental problems down the road…
meaning, more dental work, including root canals. It's the gift that
keeps on giving, from a dentist's perspective.
Fewer patients coming through the door each day isn't the only issue
striking fear in the heart of your mercury-loving dentist. Many dentists
are also wary of the possibility that thousands, if not millions, of
lawsuits could arise if they—or the FDA—admitted to the damage mercury
amalgams have done to public health. Litigation and class action
lawsuits could deliver an incapacitating blow to the dental industry.
What is Leaky
When you think of body fat you most likely think of cellulite and love
handles (subcutaneous fat), but there's another type of fat in your body

abdominal muscle, and often surrounds your vital organs.

Juicing Benefits1.Juicing helps you absorb
most of the nutrients from the vegetables. This is
important because most of us have impaired digestion as
a result of making less-than-optimal food choices over
many years. This limits your body's ability to absorb
all the nutrients from the vegetables. Juicing will help
to "pre-digest" them for you, so you will receive most
of the nutrition, rather than having it go down the
2.Juicing allows you to consume an optimal amount of
vegetables in an efficient manner. If you are a carb
type, you should eat one pound of raw vegetables per 50
pounds of body weight per day. Some people may find
eating that many vegetables difficult, but it can be
easily accomplished with a quick glass of vegetable
the Healthy Snack
A study sought to evaluate the effect of an almond-enriched
low-calorie diet on body composition and metabolism in a weight
reduction program. The results showed that supplementation with
almonds, in contrast to complex carbohydrates, was associated
with greater reductions in weight and BMI, waist circumference,
fat mass, total body water and systolic blood pressure.
That's the good news, but there's bad news too. All of
almonds in North America are pasteurized and some may use
propylene oxide which is a highly toxic flammable chemical
compound, once used as a racing fuel.

Like a lot of Americans I found myself facing bad allergies
especially in the middle of the night. After going to an allergy doctor
and having an allergy test done I was told I was allergic to dust mites.

adult asthma due to atopic sensitization was 30% and 18% for
sensitization to dust mites.
CBS Reports Sugar
A recent study supports the idea that excess consumption of high
fructose corn syrup is linked to an increase in risk factors for heart
disease by increasing a type of cholesterol that can clog arteries. The
University of California, Davis, study also indicated that calories from
added sugars are different than those from other foods. Subjects had 25
percent of their caloric intake replaced with sweetened drinks.
Nutritional biologist Kimber Stanhope was surprised to see that after
only two weeks, "We found that the subjects who consumed high fructose
corn syrup had increased levels of LDL cholesterol and other risk
factors for cardiovascular disease," she tells Gupta. "I started eating
and drinking a whole lot less sugar."
Unsafe But FDA-Approved?
Americans drink more soda than anyone else on the planet -- well over
700 eight-ounce servings each year, on average, and an increasing amount
of it is diet soda.
They might be more reluctant to do so if they knew about the safety
questions still surrounding aspartame. A number of scientists responding
expressed major concerns about aspartame's safety at the time of its
approval, and even more indicated areas where they believed more
research is needed on aspartame to resolve their concerns -- research on
areas such as neurological functions, brain tumors, seizures, headaches,
and adverse effects on children and pregnant women.

overweight, 20lbs, 100lbs, ask how did I get here. Taking a wild
guess your first idea might be that you didn't exercise enough,
