  1. Cancer-causing flame retardants found in day care centers

    Is your child being served cancer with their cookies?

    If you've ever had a child you really don't need me to tell you that it's kind of like setting your wallet on fire. Because, the truth is, nobody burns through your cash faster than kids.

    But even when kids' hands are too tiny to snatch your dough, there is an army of day care centers willing to do the job. You're taking out a second mortgage so your kid, or grandkid, can roll around on foam-rubber mats with his soft-headed playmates. But your tyke may be getting a lot more than a daily dose of milk and cookies in the bargain.

    Turns out your day care center may be giving your kiddo cancer!

    A Berkeley research team has just wrapped up a terrifying study that found these baby-watching factories are CRAWLING with dangerous flame-retarding chemicals that have been BANNED in much of the developed world.

    Researchers studied the air at 40 child care centers in California -- we're talking home, private, and government-run centers -- and found toxic levels of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) that have been linked to hormonal imbalances, brain disease, and even cancer.

    PBDEs are flame retardants that are already illegal throughout much of Europe, and for good reason. A 2010 study found that PBDE exposure can lower your child's IQ by up to 8 points! Better forget that academic scholarship!

    You're shelling out thousands of dollars a year in child care, and it's time to insist your day care center go PBDE-free. Because when your child is fighting to take his first step or speak his first words, he shouldn't have to be fighting for his life.

  2. Statins users are eating themselves sick

    Eat, drink and be buried

    He's on his third plate of deep-fried tater tots, and he's wearing more ketchup than he's eating. His extra-large belly is sagging out of his medium-sized T-shirt like a Hefty bag full of Jell-O.

    But he's not your garden variety slob -- he's just a fella trying to lower his cholesterol. And if you don't believe him, check his medicine cabinet.

    A new UCLA study proves that millions of folks are treating their prescriptions for dangerous cholesterol-lowering statins like a free pass to an all-you-can-eat buffet.

    Researchers followed the eating habits of statin users for a decade and found these pill poppers are eating just about anything the Burger King or his legions of fast-food princes throw their way. Over the past 10 years, folks on statins have increased their caloric intake by HUNDREDS of calories a day.

    And it's all because they're mistaking those tiny pills for a bullet-proof vest.

    You see, most folks taking statins waddle into their doctors' offices fat, out of shape, and sicker than a flea-ridden dog. And they're not looking to change their lifestyles -- they want a quick fix. They want a license to eat whatever they want without EVER worrying about their cholesterol or heart disease again.

    And Big Pharma has been using statins to make that promise for years -- even if that promise is a load of bull.

    The moment you swallow that first statin pill, you may never be healthy again. Statins have been linked to everything from brain disease to cancer, and a University of Missouri found they actually may BLOCK the benefits of exercise.

    So if you're taking Crestor or Lipitor as part of a plan to get yourself in shape, you'd probably have a better chance playing the lottery.

    Friend, wake up -- statins are mainstream "symptom control" treatment at its very ugliest. If you're tipping the scales at 300 pounds, do you really think statins are the answer you've been waiting for? High cholesterol isn't your problem. It's a SYMPTOM of your overeating problem -- and that problem is going to kill you.

    Shockingly, according to this latest UCLA study, doctors may not even be counseling patients on weight loss strategies before handing over a bottle of these risky pills.

    If your cholesterol numbers are climbing like the national debt -- and you'd prefer to see them plummet like Obama's approval rating -- stop looking inside a pill bottle and start looking in your refrigerator. Load up on healthy proteins, and cut out the carbs and added sugar for good.

    In fact, start skipping the middle aisles of the supermarket completely -- just stick with meats, fruits and vegetables. Odds are, the next time your doc sees you, he'll get the message that you're treating the cause of your unhealthy lifestyle -- and not just the symptoms.
