Some people who go off gluten to lose weight end up gaining weight instead.

...they may be serving you deep fried pig anus and calling it calamari.Food fraud in America: What are you really eating? | Victor Paul Alvarez | 03-12-2013 | Yahoo | Their research found that olive oil, milk, saffron and coffee joined honey and fish as the most commonly fraudulent products on the market. Most of the reported food fraud comes from producers adding fillers or diluting the real deal with less expensive ingredients.

Autism, Depression Genetically Linked | MICHAEL SMITH, MedPage Today | Feb. 28, 2013 | ABCNews | Autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and schizophrenia share common genetic underpinnings, despite differences in their symptoms and disease courses, a new study found. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: This latest genetic research is all well and good, except virtually all conventional medical and psychiatric treatments of Autism and Depression still do not include the vast arrays of herbal remedies along with very valid nutritional standards not generally acknowledged by this group.

Eating correctly can and does induce great recoveries in countless cases. I've seen it. Why are these remedies not made protocol? Simple answer, the same reason as most holistic and natural remedies, with testimonials going back thousands of years: There is not nearly as much money to be made when herbs are used instead of much more expensive drugs, that along with premium insurance and other expenses, is way more expensive than simply eating correctly, while living according to ancient principles - Harm no Others.

One can actually affect genetic code and shift brain patterns easily, just by shifting diet away from foods known to restrict blood flow to the brain, like those high in saturated fats. That would be a good start. We have a great page started on subject, just click here.

Cosmic radiation could accelerate neurodegeneration like Alzheimer's | Mark Hoffman | Jan 02, 2013 | SCIENCE WORLD REPORT | It is the first such study to explore effects of cosmic radiation, meaning high-mass, high-charged (HZE) particles like iron on the nervous system, leading to a phenomenon known as neurodegeneration, according to the authors. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Although I highly question animal testing, I am against GMO applications and torture of animals in experiments like this, posting represents a real challenge, one we are all facing regardless, with increased radiation from the Sun in both 2012 and 2013. Best case scenario is adopting a healthier diet reducing saturated fats from most animal products, trans fats from frying, etc. Anything "sticky" like this in our human systems can exacerbate radioactive isotopes' ability to "latch on" then later mutate into debilitating conditons.
