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 […]

OMEGA-3S AND NLRP3 INFLAMMASOME SIGNALING IN HUMAN OBESITY

In a recent study in the Journal of Endocrinology, the relationship between fish oil-derived long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) and the suppression of NLRP3 inflammasomes in human obesity through downregulation of inflammasome gene expression in adipocytes and macrophages was investigated. The NRLP3 inflammasome serves as a critical link between adipose inflammation and insulin resistance. […]

OBESITY AND THE MICROBIOME INFLUENCE

The gastrointestinal tract is an ecosystem that has a huge impact on human health. Research has shown the floral content of the intestine plays a role in obesity, allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, and even psychiatric disorders. A new animal study shows how fiber favorably affects the microbiome, and influences metabolism. Researchers assigned four different diets to mice. The control group was given […]
