While it may be tempting to choose the cheapest, largest jug of extra-virgin olive oil at conventional grocery stores, it’s not the best idea.
If you’re on a mission to make olive oil part of your health plan, aim for about 4 tablespoons of 100 percent olive oil per day by drizzling over salads or fresh, sliced tomatoes or using as a simple dip for whole-grain bread.
But buyer beware: While it may be tempting to choose the cheapest, largest jug of extra-virgin olive oil at conventional grocery stores, it’s not the best idea. Not only will the flavor be subpar, it may not even be olive oil. Unfortunately, olive oil adulteration is common. Seeking profits, tricksters can blend extra-virgin olive oil with low-quality varieties, or even with other plant oils like sunflower oil, reducing olive oil’s superior health benefits. It’s worth it, however, to suss out quality olive oil…

An article in Nature (“Why Chinese medicine is heading for clinics around the world,” 26 September 2018) presents the alarming prospect of ‘Traditional Chinese Medicine’ (TCM) being endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO):
“….expect that the inclusion of TCM will speed up the already accelerating proliferation of the [TCM] practices and eventually help them to become an integral part of global health care“
“In response to queries by Nature, the WHO said that its Traditional Medicine Strategy “provides guidance to Member States and other stakeholders for regulation and integration, of safe and quality assured traditional and complementary medicine products, practices, and practitioners””

Processed meats in the U.S. contain food additives that have been linked in scientific research to numerous adverse health outcomes, and for some of those chemicals that link includes cancer. Now another study has found a link between consuming processed meats and an increased risk for breast cancer–a 9% increased risk, in fact, suggesting that those consumers who wish to reduce their risk for breast cancer should remove processed meats from their diet.
Studies on red and processed meat consumption with breast cancer risk have generated inconsistent results. A new meta-analysis study has now examined all published studies on the topic. Comparing the highest to the lowest category in the 15 studies included in the analysis, processed meat consumption was associated with a 9% higher breast cancer risk.
Note: Investigators did not observe a significant association between red (unprocessed) meat intake…

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
" This is our daily news that we feel is important & we want to tell people about the truth behind the story "
