In fact, this little seed with roots in the ancient world claims to offer big benefits for a modern epidemic. The disease I’m talking about is diabetes, a disorder that affects nearly 26 million Americans and growing. The plant? Well, that’s called fenugreek. And while more research is needed, […]

Niacin: More Effective and Safer than Statins?

For most of us cholesterol is a bad word. Everyone from doctors and scientists to regulatory agencies and drug companies (and especially the media) blames cholesterol for everything bad that happens to us health-wise. Even the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has spent many millions of dollars to keep Americans informed about the “dangers” of cholesterol, especially when it comes to heart disease.1 Normally this wouldn’t be an issue.

You’ve been lied to for years.  Decades, really. Everywhere you turn, someone is telling you to watch your cholesterol, telling you that one form or another of cholesterol is either “good” or “bad,” and that if it gets too high, you are at serious risk for heart disease or even death.

As if this wasn’t enough, they are also ignoring the REAL reasons that so many people die unnecessarily of heart disease each year […]
