Liver health is directly tied to your overall health, and poor liver health could very well be the root cause of many diseases that currently affect millions of people worldwide. Often assaulted with toxic substances like high-fructose corn syrup, which can ‘overburden’ the liver and subsequently lead to complications, it is very likely that your liver has experienced at least some degree of damage due to dietary and environmental factors. In fact, the only way to avoid the build up of toxins in the liver would be to eat a nearly perfect diet free of additives, fillers, modified ingredients, or chemicals — virtually the opposite of the average American diet, which critically lacks any liver cleansing foods.

Thankfully, it is very possible to repair your liver naturally and help release excessive toxin buildup through the power of healing foods. Here are four natural liver cleansing foods:

It’s not the fact that mercury is present in a wide majority of the processed food supply, or even the fact that excessive amounts of radioactive waste is now admitted to have heavily contaminated the Pacific Ocean. No, the number one villain according to the mainstream media is natural sunlight — the very same sunlight that generates vitamin D upon coming into contact with your skin.

Vitamin D has been found to slash your risk of cancer, aid in fat loss, beat fluoride in cavity prevention, and much more. Nonetheless, it appears that the substance is quite threatening as far as the media is concerned.

Just after France legislators and officials moved to ban Monsanto’s genetically modified strain of GMO maize over environmental and health concerns, the European Union has decided to step in and re-secure Monsanto’s presence in the country — against the very will of the nation itself. This should come as no surprise when considering the fact that the United States ambassador to France, a business partner to George W. Bush, stated back in 2007 that nations who did not accept Monsanto’s GMO crops will be ‘penalized’. In fact, ambassador Craig Stapleton went as far as to say that the nations should be threatened with military-styled trade wars.

Weight loss surgery is often considered by obese individuals and mainstream doctors despite the serious risk and invasive nature, but researchers have revealed that a natural alternative can be utilized that may be just as effective without the surgery.

The substance responsible for the extreme reduction in abdominal fat (described as ‘beer belly fat’) is known as capsaicin, which is actually the ingredient in chili peppers and other spicy food that causes the familiar ‘burning spice’ sensation.

When scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) examined caspaicin, they were amazed to find that the ingredient can naturally lead to fat loss and fight obesity – related diseases with fewer side effects than invasive bariatric surgery options. Published in the journal Digestive Diseases and Sciences, the authors revealed that caspaicin could be a natural method of combating obesity that is nearly as effective as intensive surgeries — and with far less complications and risks.

While you and your family may be eating high quality organic foods on a routine basis, a simple food preparation mistake may actually be poisoning the food you eat. What’s more, you may even be told it is safe by some medical and government leaders who are completely unaware of the research on this toxic substance.

Are You Unintentionally Poisoning Your Food with Sodium Fluoride?

The toxic substance I am speaking of is sodium fluoride, added to citizens’ water supplies worldwide and used in food preparation in many homes. Even if you’re eating organic soup, for example, the fluoridated water being used to heat and cook the soup can have serious consequences when it comes to the health of you and your family — particularly young ones.

Did Monsanto actually plant genetically modified alfalfa before it was deregulated by the USDA? There is some shocking evidence that, until recently, was withheld from the public showing that Monsanto’s genetically altered alfalfa may have been set free in 2003 — a full two years or more before it was deregulated in 2005. In a letter, obtained by NaturalSociety with permission to post for public viewing, it becomes clear that the USDA may have turned a blind eye to the entire situation, allowing widespread GMO contamination of GMO-free crops.

Amazingly, the letter actually proves that the USDA was fully aware of the situation. In order to fully understand the intricate details of this event, it is first important to understand a few key factors regarding alfalfa and its connection to the entire food supply.
