Astaxanthin inhibits oxidative stress and protects against mitochondrial dysfunction

Astaxanthin is a red-orange carotenoid mainly produced by microalgae (haematococcus pluvialis) and accumulated in many marine organisms such as salmon, trout, shrimp, and lobster. Astaxanthin’s molecular structure provides its unique features such as touting a higher antioxidant activity than of other carotenoids. Previous research suggests that astaxanthin offers health-promoting benefits in the prevention and treatment of […]

What is EMR and why is it a problem?

What is EMR? Cell phones, cordless phones, GPS, all wireless devices, appliances, power lines, smart-meter networks and cell towers generate non-ionizing radiation from magnetic fields. Electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) from cell phones, computers, appliances, power lines, GPS, TVs, E-pass and WiFi damage our DNA. EMR is a form of energy commonly known as “electropollution” and it […]

Miscarriage rates triple for women with top radiation exposures

 Pregnant women exposed to high radiation levels from sources like cell phones, wireless devices and cell towers miscarried at nearly three times the rate as those exposed to low levels, according to new research. “I hope this study makes us rethink the notion that magnetic field non-ionizing radiation exposure is safe or has no health […]
