BEWARE of “Fake” Health News
These days, everyone has an opinion about nutrition.
From the folks at the FDA to some of Hollywood’s “finest”– it seems like everyone is giving out health advice.
Just this week, I’ve read headlines like, “Eating Tomatoes Gives You Cancer” and “Drinking Water Can Kill You”
C’mon! This is NONESENSE.
You don’t need the government… or some harebrained film star telling you how to take care of your body.
All you have to do is follow a few simple rules to stay in tip-top shape throughout your golden years.
Chances are you’ve run across some “fake news” when it comes to nutritional information.
There’s all kinds of unreliable “experts” out there trying to tell you what’s bad for you and what’s good for you.
The problem is when you read them and believe them… they can change the way you live.
And when you don’t get results from living off just celery juice, you start to distrust REAL, scientifically-backed breakthroughs.
But here’s what I want you to remember: Staying healthy is relatively simple.
The most powerful things you can do for your health are:
- Stop smoking
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Get some sort of exercise every day
- Reduce your exposure to pollution
- Learn to deal with stress in your life
- And eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats.
If you come across any news that tells you anything different, dismiss it.
Focus instead on reading REAL health news, like the kind I bring you six days a week.
Beyond that, you can make sure you are getting these in your diet:
- Fiber helps to keep our bowels regular, but also to take toxins out of our bodies.
- Good proteins such as grass-fed and free-range meats.
- Antioxidants, especially those found in colorful fruits and veggies. If you don’t get enough vegetables in your diet, make sure you supplement.
Health and Happiness,

Like many of my patients, Ed was worried sick about developing Alzheimer’s. And with good reason. Both of his parents had it… and now his older brother did, too.

We humans like to think of ourselves as the dominant life force on this planet. But that’s simply not true. Because there are some tiny organisms out there that can give us a run for our money… and MUCH WORSE. These little bugs can make your miserable with fever… aching joints… and they can even...
If you’re like most American seniors, you’re probably taking more pills than you can count.

The way I figure it, you have two choices as you age: You can either be the type of senior who goes out dancing… cooks their own meals… drives… and volunteers. Or you can be the “old person” who can barely walk to the mailbox… eats whatever is convenient… and almost never leaves out of...

When I told Jim his blood pressure was dangerously high, he was quick with his reply: “I don’t believe that high blood pressure mumbo jumbo… I feel FINE.” After all, Jim came to see me because he thought I didn’t believe in that mumbo jumbo either. There’s a part of me that doesn’t. Drug companies make BILLIONS off of BP meds. That’s...
When I was in medical school, we had a hard rule when it came to taking tests: if you didn’t know the answer… always choose the liver. That’s because your liver is the center of your body’s functions. It cleans your blood, stores energy, helps digest foods, and produces many of the chemicals necessary for you to stay health. The only problem? Most...
It’s all too common this time of year. You go to a holiday party or a neighborhood get-together and shorty after you don’t just feel terrible… you’re in a really bad mood, too. You see, the foods you eat can REALLY impact your mood. But if you know what to avoid (and what to eat more...
We all get sad sometimes. But if you have depression, that sadness can change your life.

The flu is no joke. Every year up to 50,000 people lose their live to this devastating infection… many of them seniors. Even worse? This year’s strain seems particularly bad.
