Try This 2x a Week (Slashes Heart Risk 23%)
Mainstream medicine is full of ideas on how you can improve your health.
But why do they have to be so darned hard?
They want you wearing out your sneakers at the gym every day… or giving up your favorite foods.
Who’s going to do that?
In my experience, very few people.
The good news, is that there are some simple (and even fun) ways to improve your health and ward off disease.
In fact, I’m going to show you a DELICIOUS way to slash your heart disease risk by a whopping 23%.
Researchers followed over 200,000 people for more than 23 years, studying their medical history, their diet, and their lifestyle choices. As they studied the data, a pattern emerged:
The people who ate one type of food at least two times a week had a MUCH lower risk of heart disease.
This heart-protective food?
Walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, pistachios, pecans, or peanuts… the specific type of nut didn’t matter.
People who ate any of these nuts two or more times per week were…
- 23% less likely to develop coronary artery disease
- 15% less likely to develop cardiovascular disease
Previous long-term observational studies have even shown that eating nuts is connected with a reduced risk of dying…especially from heart disease.
So what’s so good about nuts?
For starters, they’re loaded with antioxidants, proteins, and minerals.
They’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, and decrease the risk of heart failure.
They’re a good source of fiber, which plays a role in preventing diabetes (which contributes to heart disease).
They contain vitamin E, which prevents plaque from forming in your arteries.
They contain L-arginine, a nutrient that is especially good for keeping your arteries flexible.
They’re also good sources of magnesium, selenium, iron, potassium, trace minerals, and B vitamins.
Bottom line: They’re one of nature’s most perfect foods.
It’s nice to know that something as simple as eating a handful of nuts can have such a big impact on our health—especially when it comes to reducing the risk of America’s number one killer.
Stick with raw, unprocessed nuts for the best health bang for your buck.
To a brighter day,

When your painful knee is flaring up… or when your shoulders or fingers are aching… you probably do what lots of folks do. You reach for those trusty pain pills, like ibuprofen.

Every time I see people walking down the street with their cell phone pressed against their ear, it makes me cringe. Don’t people know these radiation-emitting devices can CAUSE CANCER?

Some doctors will tell you that some form of cognitive decline is expected—even inevitable—as you get older. They even call it “age-related cognitive decline.” Well I call it a bunch of hooey.

I’m filing this one under the “I Told You So” category. For years we’ve all been told the same lie. Doctors have told us that cancer is mostly a genetic disease – and whether you get it is pretty much a roll of the dice. I’ve always believed that was nonsense… and some very smart...

Most mainstream doctors NEVER talk about curing diabetes – they only want to talk about managing it. And managing it is a nightmare.
