Iron and your Heart Health

This is the first time I realized that there is so much added iron in the food that we eat and the effect it can have on our health. Why do we need chelators and what are they? A few trace metals that we absorb are toxic, these include iron and lead.

Is there a Common Cold Cure on the Horizon?

US scientists may have found a way to block one of the primary viruses that causes cold symptoms in adults. Their preliminary\nresearch has successfully stopped viruses from binding with human cells in a test tube.

As you might imagine, if a virus cannot bind with a cell, then it follows that it won't be able to enter the cell and reproduce. This should do a pretty good job of stoping the virus cold (no pun intended)!

Don't plan on calling your Doctor and requesting a "Cold Shot" or any other common cold cure any time soon, however. Researchers are quick to point out that they have a long way to go yet. After all, conditions in a test tube are not the same as conditions that exist in the average nose.
