A new study suggests nitric oxide is the reason people suffer from migraines and that nitric oxide comes from bacteria in the mouth charged with breaking down food. 

One study points to mouth bacteria and a separate point to nitric oxide in a person’s bloodstream that has proved to be directly associated with migraines.  Researchers suggest more studies must be conducted linking the associations between mouth nitrates and nitric oxide in the blood. 

In the interim, stay away from these foods and it will decrease your nitrate intake, hot dogs, lunch meat and bacon and another type of processed meats.  Nitrates are added for color and to prolong shelf life.

PepsiCo is being sued for misleading marketing of its Naked Juice line.  The suit claims the highpowered Naked marketing team is touting ‘no sugar added’, when in fact the product has between 35 and 61 grams of sugar per serving, to make the conversion, that’s between 6 and 15 teaspoons in each serving, but the company says we are making no changes.   For comparision a can of Pepsi Cola has 41 grams of sugar or 10 teaspoons of sugar. 

The suit suggest the Pepsico marketing team claims the product consists of high-value ingredients  and “No Sugar Added,”  without saying there is no need for additional sugar because its overloaded with it anyway. 

Consumers are angry because the product sold at a premium price despite the inferior ingredients and chock full of sugar.
