How the Mediterranean Diet boosts longevity and heart health (plus other news)

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


If you're wondering why the emails have been a little slow for a couple of days, it's because I've been on the road. I flew to Lexington, North Carolina, to tour the Vitacost manufacturing and fulfillment center, and I interviewed its founder, Wayne Gorsek. I also shot some video that I'll share with you later, once it's edited.


Expect to see a full review of the Vitacost company later, but the short version is that this company really has it together. With an astounding level of cost consciousness, they've streamlined a product picking and delivery system that gets an amazing 94% of orders shipped out the *same day* with less than a .01% error rate. I watched it myself. It's truly impressive.


Combined with their flat $4.99 shipping rate to anywhere in the continental United States, I can confidently say that there's no health product retailer anywhere that can deliver the products you order faster or more affordably than Vitacost.


Check 'em out at and see why they've grown from zero to three million customers over the last ten years or so. We'll be covering Vitacost in more detail in upcoming articles...


For today's news, we bring you important news about the longevity-boosting effects of the Mediterranean Diet, as well as its ability to greatly reduce your risk of dying from things like heart disease and cancer. We also have a story about how the vaccine pushers are now attacking YouTube video posters, claiming that Free Speech is dangerous!
