Worse than liquor for your liver

MedWorm Heart Transplant - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 18:19
Most people think liver disease only happens to alcoholics. But the truth is that being overweight or obese actually puts you at a much higher risk for liver damage than alcohol. In fact, alcohol contributes to only 6% of liver damage. But obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease. And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage than a normal-weight individual.1 That’s why about 30% of people in America have some form of chronic fatty liver disease. It’s called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD causes painful swelling and scarring of the liver.  And I blame modern food companies. Our food supply is now drenched in Big Agra’s high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Just like alcohol, HFCS is toxic to the liver. Unlike other sugar...

Godly gift for arthritis pain

MedWorm Heart Transplant - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 17:53
Big Pharma is at it again… Creating and selling a drug that causes thousands of heart attacks and strokes each year. In 2015, the FDA asked drug makers to strengthen their warning labels. Since then, most have listed their dangerous side effects on the bottle. But one manufacturer thought they didn’t have to warn people about their dangerous drug. They marketed their product as a “unique” breakthrough. They even published studies promising it was “safe for long-term use.” 1 The drug is a 7-year-old arthritis drug called Actemra. It’s made by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Roche. But a new investigation has linked it to at least 1,128 heart attack and stroke deaths. Thousands more have suffered serious side effects. These include heart failure, st...
