'Pectin is a fiber found in citrus, apples and other fruit. The pectin found in citrus fruits—but only in a modified form—has been the subject of a significant amount of cancer research.

For pectin to be absorbed by the body, rather than passing through the colon as bulk, it must be artificially modified to a low molecular weight.

Modified citrus pectin (MCP) is the result of pH and temperature modification that breaks the pectin into shorter-chained carbohydrates that dissolve more readily in water and are better absorbed by the body. '

New GMO Wine Makes Promises Of No More Hangovers, But At What Cost?

 https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/533041942884413440/505QwSsn.jpeg


'Scientists at the University of Illinois have engineered a genetically modified yeast to enhance fermentation and eliminate byproducts that cause hangovers. The question is, how will altering natural yeast in fermentation processes affect the chemical constituents in wine once metabolized?

 Food scientists have been looking to incorporate additives consisting of a series of chelation compounds to wine to prevent it from looking, smelling and tasting funky after oxidation. The problem is, many of them are toxic to living cells. A new method of modifying yeast may bypass additives altogether.'

'Carpal tunnel syndrome is considered mysterious to conventional medicine. Now we find proof that nature helps solve the riddle of the carpal tunnel by virtue of flaxseed oil - also referred to as linseed oil.

Years ago as a little league baseball player I would rub linseed oil onto my baseball glove because it made the glove softer and more pliable. This trick allowed me to catch the ball better. It also lengthened the life of the glove.

Little did I or anyone else know the external application of linseed oil (Latin name Linum usitatissimum) – also referred to in nutrition as flaxseed oil – can also treat carpal tunnel syndrome.

But can treating carpal tunnel syndrome really be compared to rubbing oil onto a baseball glove?'

"Organic" strawberries that overflow from baskets at major groceries and local farmers' markets are not nearly as organic as they claim. Federal regulations that allow millions of pounds of toxic chemicals to be used to grow plants that eventually produce strawberries are being labeled as organic.

Starbucks Newly Offered “Coconut Milk” Confirms it’s the McDonald’s of Coffee

http://www.realfarmacy.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/fake-coconutmilk.jpeg

'Starbucks “Coconut Milk” is Fast Food Quality

In case you haven’t heard, Starbucks is now offering its very own version of “coconut milk” or more formally known as: Starbucks Single Origin Sumatra Coconut Milk. What might that statement mean in terms of actual quality? 

“Single origin” sounds impressive, but most likely it means it comes from a single rather large factory in Sumatra where thousands of workers eke out a meager living. What’s so special about that? Another researcher noticed there’s no ‘Fair Trade Certified’ label on the coconut milk carton.'

'Processed foods are loaded with preservatives, artificial colors, and artificial flavorings, which is one of the reasons that I recommend avoiding them. Once you become a label reader, you’ll realize just how ubiquitous they are.


The best way to avoid toxic chemical additives is to consume only fresh whole foods. But practically speaking, this can be difficult for many people to accomplish, at least 100 percent of the time. Chances are that, despite your best efforts, you’ll have a processed food or two somewhere in your diet.


Therefore, it’s good to know which of the thousands of chemical additives are the most dangerous and should be avoided at all cost when you spot them on a food label.'
