* Researchers found that the highest vitamin E intake was significantly associated with a reduced risk of Type II diabetes, compared to subjects with the lowest intake. Those with the highest intake of a carotenoid found in oranges, papaya, bell peppers, corn and watermelon also reduced Type II diabetes risk by more than forty percent.

* Good sources of vitamin E include spinach, eggs, meat, poultry, fish, nuts and seeds, avocado, tomatoes, peaches, apples and blackberries.

* It is possible to get too much selenium, but a range of 200-400 mcg daily is considered quite safe.

* Female brains produce less serotonin than men.

* Richard Wurtman, MIT clinical research director, discovered that carbs prompt the brain to produce serotonin, but only if very little or no protein is eaten at the same time.

* Fish oil, lecithin, vitamin D, nettle leaves and sarsaparilla are natural supplements known to relieve psoriasis symptoms. Pycnogenol, a powerful antioxidant, rubbed on areas of psoriasis also aids in eliminating outbreaks.
You can also rub the effected area with the yolk of an egg. (Do not use the white.) Use the yolk like a shampoo. Rub it on with a little water to keep it from being too thick. The protein in the yolk acts like a healing agent to skin
rashes.

* Henry Ford Hospital researchers followed 448 children from birth to seven years old. Nearly half of the children received antibiotic treatments (mostly penicillin) within the first six months of life, and among these children, the
risk of developing asthma was two and a half times greater than the risk to children who received no antibiotics within the first six months. Risk of developing allergies was also significantly increased in the antibiotic group.

* Mayo Clinic researchers have discovered that a component in green tea helps kill cells of the most common leukemia. The study led by Neil E. Kay, M.D., shows that green tea's EGCG interrupted survival signals, prompting leukemia cells to die in eight out of ten patients tested in the laboratory.

* National Geographic studies show that human beings contribute 700,000 tons of chemicals and toxins into the environment every day.

* Include plenty of calcium-rich foods in your diet, such as cabbage, kale, yellow, green or waxed beans, and salmon. And since calcium and magnesium work together, foods that are high in magnesium include leafy green vegetables, whole grains, bananas, apricots, meat, beans, and nuts.
