Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis, defined as a reduction of bone mass or bone density, was long viewed as a disease unique to aging women.

Reflux (GERD)

Reflux, or Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a chronic condition in which contents of the stomach flow back (`reflux`) into the esophagus potentially causing symptoms (e.g., heartburn) and injury to esophageal tissue. GERD is one of the most common health conditions of the gastrointestinal tract.


Gout & High Uric Acid

Gout is a form of arthritis in which excess uric acid forms crystals in joints and other tissues causing painful inflammation.  Gout attacks cause a characteristic painful inflammation of one or more joints of the extremities.  An acute attack of gout, although brief and usually subsiding spontaneously, can be debilitating.

The controversy on benefits of organic foods still persists, despite evidence showing that they are much lower in pesticide and chemical contamination, contain higher omega 3, and have less dangerous bacteria than conventional foods.  Various factors could be driving this controversy, and behind the powers of politics and industrial domination, money is a key factor.
