Posted by on Oct 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Chronic Use of Heartburn Prescriptions Can Cause Diabetes

Posted by on Oct 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on FDA — Captured and Corrupt

If you’re like most people, you probably assume that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is funded by the U.S. government and therefore isn’t catering to private industries.

While the FDA itself does not accept corporate money, it does receive money funneled via a nonprofit foundation, which in turn receives money...

Posted by on Oct 18, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Scientists Want to Create Tasty Food From Plastic

We have a problem with plastic. Not only is it difficult to get rid of without damaging the environment, but we appear to have an addiction to all things disposable. In the U.S., plastic is considered an integral and necessary part of daily life. Just a stroll down the grocery store aisle reveals an unhealthy dependence on plastic, from packaging to bags for our groceries. Fresh produce is often wrapped in plastic or sliced and shrink-wrapped in a plastic covering. Nuts, cheese, milk and lettuce are all encased in plastic. Across the world,...

Why Are NAD+ Precursors so Important?

Posted by on Oct 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Are NAD+ Precursors so Important?

Niacin is a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a vital signaling molecule1 that’s also believed to play an important role in longevity. This is partly due to its role as an essential substrate for sirtuins,2 which are enzymes related to healthy aging, as well as its role in DNA repair. NAD+ modulates energy production and many enzymes and in so doing controls hundreds of processes in your body including the survival of cells and energy metabolism. NAD+ is influenced on a daily basis by what you eat, exercise levels and...

What to Buy Now in Case of Another Lockdown

Posted by on Oct 15, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on What to Buy Now in Case of Another Lockdown

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted shortages in food and supplies that haven’t been seen since the Depression era. It also shifted, practically overnight, trends in consumer buying behaviors, turning previously mundane items into hot commodities. Toilet paper, cleaning supplies and nonperishable foods flew off store shelves in the pandemic’s early days while, in the weeks and months that followed, disruptions in manufacturing and the supply chain contributed to shortages among lumber, appliances, aluminum cans, meat and even coins.1...
