  1. Sex mineral zinc can help men and women in the bedroom

    For sex fuel, think zinc

    There's one mineral that can boost the sex lives of men and women alike: zinc.

    For men, zinc can supercharge erections and have you ready to "do it" anytime you want. And for women, zinc can make sure your pleasure doesn't turn into pain since it's essential for the production of natural vaginal lubrication.

    The best source of zinc by far is that time-tested aphrodisiac, oysters. But there's just one problem.

    "Oysters are rather pricey and many are now farm-raised rather than wild caught," writes Douglass Report reader Carla G.

    You bet they're pricey -- and worth every penny if you ask me. But I know it's not realistic to have a steady oyster habit in this day and age, and going broke because you've spent all your dough on oysters isn't exactly a recipe for marital bliss.

    You can also get zinc from meats such as beef and pork and shellfish such as lobsters and Alaska king crab as well as dairy. You'll even find a little in beer, which means that famous social lubricant can actually be a literal bedroom lubricant a well.

    And of course you can also get zinc from supplements.

    But it's not just a matter of getting zinc from diet or supplements. You also need to watch for the foods that'll suck the zinc right out of you. Phytic acid is essentially a chelating agent for zinc, and you'll find it in grain such as rice as well as seeds and some nuts.

    In addition, zinc is best absorbed with protein, so if you're not eating enough delicious meat -- and you're eating grains besides -- then neither oysters nor zinc tablets will do you much good.

    Once you rid yourself of these zinc-busters, you can focus on getting the amount you need for good lovin'. The RDAs -- 11 mg a day for men and 8 mg a day for women -- are far too low. I recommend between 25mg and 50mg a day.

    Don't go overboard as too much zinc can be harmful.

    A naturopathic physician such as a member of the American Academy for the Advancement of Medicine can measure your levels and tell you precisely how much you need and the best ways to get it.

  2. The right way to get your chocolate fix

    I always cringe when I read a news report on the health benefits of cocoa -- the takeaway is almost always "eat more chocolate."

    Sure, go ahead and eat more chocolate -- if you want to kill yourself.

    But if you want the health benefits, you'll need to stick to pure cocoa and get it the same way I do: so raw you have to steal it from a monkey.

    What's the difference? Glad you asked.

    Chocolate is a candy loaded with sugar, soy, and an alphabet soup of chemicals -- and if that's not bad enough, the cocoa used to make it has been treated, processed, and roasted until all the health benefits are literally baked right out of it.

    Any antioxidants that manage to survive this torture are purely accidental.

    Raw cocoa, on the other hand, is fermented and dried -- a process that preserves all the nutrients and gives the cocoa bean (which is actually a seed) 20 times the antioxidant power of blueberries and 120 times the power of bananas.

    It's a nutritional superfood that can protect your heart and arteries, boost your immune system, fight cancer, and prevent diabetes. It's also a great natural libido-booster used as an aphrodisiac for centuries by the indigenous Indians of Central America.

    Now, I'm sure all that has you hungry for some raw cocoa of your own. The good news is that this stuff is easier to find than ever -- you can get whole beans, nibs (chopped up beans), or raw cocoa powder.

    The bad news is that this is definitely not chocolate as you've ever tasted it before. It's got a depth and complexity that rivals wine, and can be an acquired taste for those raised on Hershey bars.

    Some people never acquire it.

    If that's you, don't give up -- try blending raw cocoa powder into your coffee and smoothies for that familiar chocolate taste with none of the added sugars or soy.

    It's so good you won't believe it's not bad for you.

  3. Is obesity a shrinking problem?

    According to the surveys, it appears that childhood obesity has hit a statistical plateau after rising steadily for more than 20 years.
  4. PT-141

    And not to add to the list of ways in which we've cheapened, packaged, governed and homogenized our love lives, but there's now a new sex aid on the horizon. According to a recent article in the UK Guardian, a colorless, odorless spray called PT-141 may soon be all the rage for on-demand sex.
