Tea tree oil is becoming more and more popular. It is known for its cleansing, antimicrobial and skin-boosting properties. Tea tree oil is one of the most extensively researched essential oils out there. It all started in 1923, when an Australian chemist, Arthur Penfold, found that the antiseptic activity of tea tree oil was 12 times stronger than that of carbolic acid or phenol.
On the surface, fruit seems like the perfect food. However, there are a few reasons that will make you reconsider the belief that all fruits are good for you.

While both cottage cheese and flaxseed are both very nutritional on their own, the combination of the two are believed by some to contain extremely powerful healing properties. Some specialists, like the German bio-chemist Johanna Budwig, believe it can even cure cancer. Now to be clear, the data that stems from this claim is straight out of the 1950’s, as is the Budwig diet itself. Today, the Budwig diet is not recommended as a treatment for cancer. However, the combination of cottage cheese and flaxseed may still prove worthy for cancer patients as well as all of us.
There are many controversial opinions about snacking. Most people believe that it is healthy, and that it speeds up your metabolism and makes you lose weight
However, the evidence does not support this.
Studies have found that eating frequently has no significant effect on how many calories you burn.
In one study, researchers compared the responses of people who consumed an equal number of calories in either two or seven meals per day. They found that eating frequency has little or no effect on metabolism.
As you would probably guess, the weight loss industry is a multibillion dollar industry that relies on people knowing absolutely nothing about what is in their own kitchen cabinets. The weight loss industry doesn’t want you to know about exercise or natural weightless diets simply because they can’t profit. Instead they try to convince people they should buy their overpriced, processed foods and shake mixes. Walking into a nutritional store or searching the internet results in a overwhelming wave of special diets and products that offer miraculous results, however, few really believe in them.
Carrots, and especially baby carrots, are a popular snack in the U.S., for adults and children alike. Parents use the bite-sized, sweet treats in children’s lunches to boost the nutrient value of their mid-day meal. They are easy to dip, snack on and require little to no preparation.
Baby carrots today are a breed apart from the original product, which were peeled and reshaped from broken or misshapen larger carrots. California carrot farmer Mike Yurosek was the entrepreneur in the 1980s who reshaped the way you think about carrots.
As with most places, Russia too noticed a remarkable increase in cancer rates during the 19th century. Soviet researchers looked at cancer rates by region and noticed certain geographical areas of the Soviet block were practically immune to cancer while other areas seemed to be suffering from a cancer epidemic. Looking deeper into those areas they noticed a correlation between high levels of Kombucha intake and low cancer rates. over the course of the 19th century, both Russia and Germany conducted many studies on the health benefits and potential cancer fighting properties of Kombucha, only to have lost most of that data during the cold war and political transitions.
Though often linked with its sister plant marijuana, hemp in the United States especially, has fallen out of fashion for all the wrong reasons since the 1950’s. In actuality, the benefits of hemp in textiles and other manufacturing and hemp seeds and oil in health and nutrition are undeniable and worthy of making us reconsider this beneficial plant.
