#1. ) More Young People Are Dying of Colon Cancer

From The New York Times: When researchers reported earlier this year that colorectal cancer rates were rising in adults as young as their 20s and 30s, some scientists were skeptical. The spike in figures, they suggested, might not reflect a real increase in disease incidence but earlier detection, which can be a good thing.


#2.) ‘Not one drop’ of Poland Spring bottled water is from a spring, lawsuit claims

From the Washington Post: Poland Spring, the country’s best-selling bottled water, is “a colossal fraud,” according to a class-action lawsuit.

The lawsuit, filed last week in Connecticut, alleges that instead of spring water, parent company Nestle Water North America has been selling billions of gallons of groundwater to its customers.



#3.) Vitamin C deficiency may inhibit immune system’s ability to combat leukemia

From News.Com.AU: AN apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a glass of juice could keep you out of a cancer ward. Research involving mice has linked vitamin C deficiency to leukemia.

Now two new studies published in the science journals Cell and Nature have figured out how such a deficiency also damages the body’s ability to suppress blood tumor development.


#4.) Delicious Eggplant Rollatini Recipe

From Forks Over Knives: This Italian-style eggplant rollatini dish is usually filled with bread crumbs and cheeses. This version uses a savory millet and spinach filling–seasoned with fresh basil– and baked and topped with tomato sauce. This can stand alone or be served with a salad or on a bed of pasta.


#5.) Costco Joins a Host of Retailers Refusing to Sell GMO Salmon


From Healthy Holistic Costco announced in 2015 that it would become one of the largest sellers of organic products in the US. Since Costco customers rallied in Seattle to deliver more than 50,000 signatures asking the company not to sell GM salmon, they are finally taking a stand on GMO Salmon.

Great work, Costco!


#6.) What the Color of Your Bread Bag Twist Tie Can Tell You

From Tasting Table: Behind every great sandwich is a fresh loaf of bread. Though you can search a bread bag for the expiration-date fine print, there’s another small detail that will quickly and easily tell you how fresh its contents are: the twist tie.

We can’t believe we didn’t know this already! Check it out!


#7.) Good-for-Your-Gut Nut Bread

From Dr. Optimal gut balance begins with your diet. You want to eat lots of fiber, lean protein, and healthy fats – which you’ll get from this delicious, gut friendly “bread”. Take a look!


#8.) Study: this common ingredient found in moisturizers increased tumor growth by 200%

From Healthy Holistic Living: A study has found that topical applications of moisturizers such as Dermabase, Dermovan, Eucerin Original Moisturizing Cream, or Vanicream could increase skin cancer risk.

Do you still use any of these moisturizers?


#9.) Google wants to know if you’re depressed. What could go wrong?

From The Guardian: Around 72% of Americans look up health information online, according to a 2013 Pew study. And last year, Google reported that about 1% of the site’s searches relate to medical symptoms.


#10. ) Spicy Grilled Cauliflower Steaks Recipe


From Bon Appetite: If you like spicy food, you’re going to love this recipe for Grilled Cauliflower Steaks by Rick Martinez! Give it a try and let us know what you think!
