Large studies like the China Study (and numerous other studies, including the Oxford Study and repeated studies on Seventh-Day Adventists) have clearly shown health benefits from a vegetarian diet. As a whole, the research on diet and health shows better protection from disease when a vegetarian versus non-vegetarian diet is followed. We believe that the research lends support to any personal decision to follow a vegetarian diet and that a ...
Among their many nutrition benefits, olives contain important amounts of carotenoids. Carotenoids are naturally occurring, fat-soluble pigments that give many whole, natural foods their distinct yellow and orange colors. The best-studied and most famous of the carotenoids is beta-carotene, but hundreds of carotenoids have been identified by scientists and many are also important to our health.
You might expect a very simple answer to this question about “high” intake of meat, but unfortunately, research studies as a group do not provide us with any simple answer to this question. It turns out that the definition of “high” is actually quite complicated. In many studies, participants are divided into groups according to the amount of meat that they consume.
In the United States, hydroponically grown vegetables currently exist in a state of partial limbo with respect to organic food regulations, and from a business standpoint, state-of-the-art commercial production techniques continue to present a business challenge. For a variety of reasons, many of them technical and not related to low-quality production techniques on the part of hydroponic growers, most hydroponic vegetables in the U.S.
It’s not mandatory to consume glutathione in the diet, even though we like that idea! Glutathione is found preformed in many foods, even though it is found in relatively small amounts.

However, since a healthy human body can make glutathione from its three building blocks (the amino acids glutamic acid, glycine, and cysteine), ...
Food packaging of any kind can present health risks if there are unwanted substances in the packaging that come into direct contact with the food. These risk are not usually great enough for a person to automatically avoid the food, but if the food is a regular part of the diet (eaten several times a week or more over a long period of time), it may still be worth considering ...

At many different levels, springtime is a new beginning. In spring, all of Nature renews, rises and expands. Plants move upward, sprouting and blossoming, and a feeling of freshness flows through everything. Sunrise comes earlier and earlier in the day, and youthfulness burgeons in the plant world with lots of new shoots and sprouts.
We do not recommend water that is packaged in plastic – even the hard polycarbonate plastic that is popular in 5-gallon jugs that can be taken home and used with a water stand. The reason for our recommendation is migration of plastic compounds, including BPA. Even at room temperature, a very small amount of the plastic in the water container will migrate into the water and increase certain health risks.
