In our #TBT Pioneer Archives post, read Dr. William A. Albrecht’s observations on the Relationship Between Soil Quality and Human Health.
Young Women Deficient in Critical Nutrients
Young women are likely to be deficient in nutrients critical to robust health. Compromised bone development during teenage years, and poor fetal health during child-bearing ages, can be minimized by eating meat and dairy, prevalent in many ancestral diets. Read more at Yahoo.
Loneliness and Longevity
Researchers are exploring how pandemic-induced stress, trauma, and disease influence aging. People experiencing isolation and loneliness are at greater risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity, depression, cognitive decline, and premature death. And yet some persevere, nevertheless. Nutrition and exercise may be keys to influence chromosome-protecting telomeres and senescent cells to increase healthy, active years of life. Learn more in Nature.
Anti-Aging Benefits of Korean Red Ginseng
Korean Red Ginseng (KRG), in a gold-standard research study published in Nutrients, was found to slow biological aging in post-menopausal women. Three anti-aging markers, increase in cells responsible for energy production, increased antioxidant status, and reduced fatigue syndrome all were influenced by KRG in this 8-week trial.

New Research on COVID Exposure and Immunity
Covid immunity from injection or infection may be a false promise, according to leading researchers in The Atlantic. They posit that exposure doesn’t mean protection, especially over time and considering the potential of new antibody-dodging variants. So, protect yourself; visit our website for free Covid & Immunity resources! And read about immunity prediction in The Atlantic.
Pioneer Archives Post: Dr. William A. Albrecht on the Relationship Between Soil Quality and Human Health
Our health is inexorably tied to the quality of the food we consume. And the quality of our food begins with the soil in which it’s grown.
William A. Albrecht, MS, PhD highlights that critical relationship in this 1945 article, originally published in Consumers’ Research Bulletin. In it, he describes the benefits of food produced by high quality soil, the problems of food from low quality soil, and the negative impact of soil depletion on food quality.
Learn more about why Dr. Albrecht refers to soil as the “foundation on which good food, good health, and sound bodies are built” in our Pioneer Archives post.
