Researchers say Kelp seaweed may be the next food enlisted in breast cancer prevention, if they can replicate findings from an animal study conducted at the University of California. In the animal study conducted researchers found the seaweed effectively reduced levels of estradiol,…
What is bronchitis?
Bronchitis is an inflammation of the trachea and bronchial tree. Bronchitis can be either acute or chronic. Acute bronchitis may be caused by viral or bacterial infections and is often preceded by an upper respiratory tract infection. Acute bronchitis can also result from irritation of the mucous membranes by environmental fumes, acids, solvents, or tobacco smoke.
Chronic bronchitis may result from prolonged exposure to bronchial irritants. Cigarette smoking, environmental toxins, and inhaled allergens can all cause chronic irritation of the bronchi. Chronic bronchitis is typically seen in adults who have smoked over 20 cigarettes per day for more than 20 years.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Also indexed as: Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COLD), Emphysema, Pulmonary Disease
What is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) refers to the combination of chronic bronchitis and emphysema resulting in obstruction of airways. Although chronic bronchitis and emphysema are distinct conditions, smokers and former smokers often have aspects of both. In chronic bronchitis, the linings of the bronchial tubes are inflamed and thickened, leading to a chronic, mucus-producing cough and shortness of breath. In emphysema, the alveoli (tiny air sacs in the lungs) are damaged, also leading to shortness of breath. COPD is generally irreversible and can be fatal.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment by Potassium
Is Potassium a possible treatment for Rhematoid Arthritis.
by Charles Weber, MS
It is my contention that potassium deficiency is either causing, or greatly making worse, rheumatoid arthritis, which I will shorten to “arthritis” in these articles. In assessing the possibility of this hypothesis people have little to go on.
For generations arthritis has been considered an inevitable part of aging. This painful condition causes stiffness and swelling of the joints, often a sensation of heat at the affected parts, and in some cases crippling deformity. Less known are other symptoms including fatigue, fever, skin rash, and heart and liver disorders. Temporary pain relief was thought to be the best one could hope for. Not so any longer. Promising research offers new therapies and remedies, which can control most symptoms, and the future hope of a complete cure.
