Spice rack secret could slash your blood sugar levels

 You want to fight disease, extend your life and save your supper all at once? Forget the medicine chest -- you won't find the answer there.

 Head to your spice rack instead!

 Grab the turmeric and use it liberally -- because this Indian spice goes well with everything from your breakfast eggs to that dinner steak. More importantly, this stuff could do more to protect your heart than cholesterol meds, aspirin and BP pills combined.

 That's because the REAL villain isn't blood pressure, and it's certainly not your cholesterol.

 It's body-wrecking, brain-rotting, heart-popping INFLAMMATION that'll get you every time.

 Inflammation is one of the biggest risk factors for an early demise, but your own doctor is too busy micromanaging your cholesterol to even bother testing for it.

 The good news is that you don't have to wait for him to get wise to this (if you do, you'll likely wait yourself into the grave). No, you can take action now -- and you can start by shaking that turmeric with everything you got.

 Packed inside this potent spice is a not-so-secret ingredient called curcumin, one of nature's most powerful anti-inflammatories. And in a new placebo-controlled study, 117 patients with metabolic syndrome given curcumin saw THREE DIFFERENT markers for inflammation plunge, including deadly C-reactive protein.

 But the benefits don't end there -- because they also enjoyed drops in fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1c.

 The folks who got the placebo? Well, let's just say I hope they switched to the real deal once the study was over -- because their inflammation and glucose levels jumped.

 So do yourself, and your body, a favor: Next time you go to the grocery store grab some turmeric for your spice rack and some curcumin supplements for your daily routine. And then, keep an eye on your inbox -- because I'm going to have more on the devastating toll of inflammation in Friday's Daily Dose.

 Keeping it spicy,

 William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.

Innocent Student Subject to Restraining Order for Resembling Alleged Rapist

Female student has innocent male banned from majority of campus triggering rape memories

An innocent male student was reportedly banned from entering large areas of his liberal-arts school in Oregon after a female classmate accused him of slightly resembling a rapist she encountered months prior in another state.

According to Professor Janey Halley, who detailed the incident in an article for the Harvard Law Review, the unnamed male student was forced to abide by the restraining order despite being found innocent during an extensive school investigation.

“I recently assisted a young man who was subjected by administrators at his small liberal arts university in Oregon to a month-long investigation into all his campus relationships, seeking information about his possible sexual misconduct in them…” Halley wrote.

Calling the investigation “an immense invasion of his and his friends’ privacy,” Halley stated that the ensuing punishment resulted in the near-complete dismantling of his education at the college.

“(He) was ordered to stay away from a fellow student (cutting him off from his housing, his campus job, and educational opportunity) — all because he reminded her of the man who had raped her months before and thousands of miles away,” she said.

Choosing to persecute him based solely on the feelings of another, college officials subjected the male student to near-impossible guidelines.

“The stay-away order remained in place, and was so broadly drawn up that he was at constant risk of violating it and coming under discipline for that,” Halley said. “When the duty to prevent a ‘sexually hostile environment’ is interpreted this expansively, it is affirmatively indifferent to the restrained person’s complete and total innocence of any misconduct whatsoever.”

The incident represents the disturbing and growing implementation of politically correct viewpoints, which favor mere feelings over facts, logic and the rights of others.

As noted by Infowars Paul Joseph Watson, countless young men across the country have seemingly given up on approaching woman over the fear of violating some absurd unwritten rule of political correctness. Continue reading

Don't Want Your Privacy Violated, AT&T's Adds $29 To Your Bill

AT&T may be offering customers the option to purchase its 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) service in cities like Kansas City, Mo., on a standalone basis for $70, but that low price comes with a catch: The telco will track users' Web surfing activity.
In order to keep the telco from tracking their web activity, consumers will have to shell out an additional $29 a month, meaning the service will jump to nearly $100 a month.
Jonathan Mayer, a Stanford University computer scientist who focuses on online monitoring technology, told The Wall Street Journal that the additional charge "seems like a huge penalty intended to normalize the practice" of tracking.
An AT&T spokeswoman told WSJ that the GigaPower privacy option is not a charge to people who decided to not have their web activity tracked, but rather a discount to those who did not choose the option.
"We can offer a lower price to customers participating in AT&T Internet Preferences because advertisers will pay us for the opportunity to deliver relevant advertising and offers tailored to our customer's interests," she said.
While Google and Facebook offer customers free service by agreeing to get access to their personal data, the two companies don't ask users to pay to not be tracked.
Under its current structure, AT&T's GigaPower $70 a month option looks at the search terms that a user enters, web pages visited and what links they clicked on during their browsing sessions. AT&T said that is uses the data it collects from these customers to help advertisers better direct their ads on web pages, email messages or direct mail. Continue reading
