They’re Catching on to Us

The world is catching on…

In 2011, I first warned readers of the dangers of triclosan – a chemical commonly found in antibacterial soaps. Studies showed that not only was triclosan useless, it causes developmental and reproduction problems. Triclosan also reduces muscular strength and cardiac function of heart tissue… increasing the risk of heart failure.

To Survive a Market Mania, Prepare, Don’t Predict

Doc’s Note: In Aesop’s fable of the Tortoise and the Hare, it was the Hare’s overconfidence that lost him the race…

In today’s markets, people are confident – albeit a bit jumpy. They’re buying and selling entire sectors when just one stock reports average earnings…

Four Ways to Enjoy Summer Without Hurting Your Wallet

Vacation travel, eating out, visiting friends and family, baseball games… Summer is the prime time for some of my favorite activities, but it can also hit your wallet hard.

Last year, Americans upped their summer-vacation spending by more than 10% – from $1,621 to $1,798… even though fewer folks got away for an actual vacation.

The Key to Weight Loss Isn’t in a Pill

“Could you shed some light on weight-loss claims?”

Get Paid Tax-Free Yields as 97% of Puerto Rican ‘Yes’ Voters Likely Lose

This week, 97% of Puerto Rican referendum voters ticked “yes” for statehood…

The vote is nonbinding… the same sort that was last held in 2012, 1998, 1993, 1991, and 1967. And although a huge majority voted yes, only 23% of the island showed up – far below the usual 80% turnout.

The Oil ‘Free Fall’ Is Coming to an End

Doc’s note: Oil is a cyclical industry. When oil supplies are low, prices are high. When supplies are high, prices are low.

For the past several years, we’ve seen weak oil prices. But an oil move is coming that no one expects… according to new Stansberry Research analyst Flavious Smith.

Parkinson’s and Milk? Nonsense

The other day, a news headline claiming that “low-fat dairy intake may raise Parkinson’s risk” caught my attention.

The study, run out of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, analyzed data from about 129,000 participants over a 25-year study. In that time, a little more than 1,000 participants developed Parkinson’s.

The Middle East oil boom – 100 years in the making – has collapsed.

The reason is simple: the incredible boom in U.S. shale production. But the “worst case” for oil prices may be overstated.
