Breakfast Casserole with Mushrooms, Bell Peppers, and Feta

Breakfast Casserole with Mushrooms, Bell Peppers, and FetaWe made a few tweaks to Kalyn's original recipe.


'One study even found that obesity and insulin resistance syndrome rates were 35 percent to 50 percent lower among people who ate breakfast every day, compared to those who frequently skipped it. -- But there's more to it than simply not skipping the meal. You need to give your body high-quality fuel to run off of for the day. And sugary breakfast cereals do not qualify.'

--Dr. Mercola


Mushroom, Green Pepper, and Feta Breakfast Casserole

Makes 8-10 servings

8 oz. sliced, cleaned mushrooms (we like a selection of Crimi, Porobello, and white mushrooms)

1 large green bell pepper, coarsely chopped into pieces about 3/4 inch square

1-2 tsp. olive oil, to saute mushrooms and green peppers

3 green onions, white and green parts, sliced (also called scallions)

1 cup crumbled authentic feta cheese (or more, to taste)
Note: Bulgarian and French Feta are less salty that Greek feta.

18 free range, organic eggs

1 tsp. dried,oregano or Italian herb seasoning ( Non-Irradiated )

Fresh ground black pepper (Non-Irradiated) to taste (more is better)

1-2 chopped garlic clove(s)

Preheat oven to 375 F. coat 10 X 14 glass casserole dish with olive oil. (A dish slightly smaller than this will work. If your dish is much larger than this, just increase ingredients slightly.


Heat frying pan, add small amount of olive oil, and saute mushrooms 4-5 minutes, until softened and partly cooked. Spread mushrooms in bottom of casserole dish. Add a bit more olive oil to frying pan if needed, and saute green peppers until softened and partly cooked. Layer peppers over mushrooms. Crumble feta cheese over top of mushroom-pepper mixture.
Beat eggs with oregano and black pepper. (Don't add salt because Feta cheese is salty enough.)

Bake about 45 minutes, or until casserole is firmly set and top is slightly browned. Serve hot. You can garnish with a dollop of organic sour cream topped with freshly made salsa.



One at a time, saute bell peppers and mushrooms and layer in casserole dish with green onions and Feta cheese crumbled on top.

Beat the eggs with oregano and black pepper, then pour over the vegetable-cheese misture and bake.

Big Pharma Scrambles for a Piece of the Vaccine Pie


'It’s a small shot in the arm, but it could mean big money for pharmaceutical companies around the world. With flu season upon us and swine flu threatening to reach pandemic proportions, Big Pharma is scrambling to join the vaccine game.

'While the multitudes of flu strains that have popped up in recent years have added to the pharmaceutical industry’s interest in the field, it's the ever-present demand and the idea of prevention that has the sector abuzz.

' "As more diseases become amenable to fixing or prevention through vaccine, the market expands," says Les Funtleyder, Miller Tabak analyst and author of Healthcare Investing: Profiting from the New World of Pharma, Biotech and Health-Care Services. He adds that the industry is finding new diseases all the time that can be vaccinated against, such as HPV or meningitis.'

Editor's Note: Here's the key to effortless, eternal profits for Big Pharma and concomitantly the key to steadily, declining public health:

"Once a vaccine is put on the recommended list for people to get, it will always provide a certain amount of demand," says Funtleyder.

The Health Care Reform Bill Establishes A Program Called 'No Child Left Unimmunized Against Influenza'


Which Will Use Elementary And Secondary Schools As Flu Vaccination Centers

'For parents who are concerned about vaccines, the health care reform bill recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives contains some very troubling news. Section 2524 of the bill on page 1391 established a program called "No Child Left Unimmunized Against Influenza" which will use elementary and secondary schools across the United States as flu vaccination centers. You can read the entire bill for yourself right here, but most people simply do not have time to read the entire bill because it is a whopping 1990 pages long. The truth is that this is what happens when the government is put in charge of health care. Parents are quickly being stripped of their right to make the health decisions for their own children.

'Of course the bill also states that participation in the program will be voluntary, but how "voluntary" will it be for most parents when they send their children to a "flu vaccination center" every day where the school officials are being ordered to "leave no child left behind against influenza"? The reality is that the freedom to choose an organic lifestyle for ourselves and our children is slowly being squeezed out of existence.

'On page 1392 of the health care reform bill, it describes the purpose of the "No Child Left Unimmunized Against Influenza" program:

'The program under this section shall be designed to administer vaccines consistent with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the annual vaccination of all children 5 through 19 years of age.

'This bill would ensure that year after year more American children than ever before would get shot up with vaccines full of devastating toxins.'

70 Heartbreaking Stories From People Who Have Had Their Lives Destroyed By H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine Side Effects


'While a few stories about adverse reactions to the H1N1 swine flu vaccine have gotten into the mainstream media, the reality is that most mainstream media outlets are extremely hesitant to publish such stories. The general belief in the media seems to be that if they publish a story about a "rare" adverse reaction to the H1N1 vaccine, then the general public may be discouraged from taking the vaccine and more people will get sick. However, this is a totally false assumption by the media.


'The truth is that reports of serious adverse reactions to the H1N1 swine flu vaccine are constantly pouring in. In addition, the pharmaceutical companies who produced these vaccines spend millions of dollars to advertise on mainstream media outlets. Do you think that the owners of those mainstream media outlets are going to do anything that will jeopardize that source of income? The truth is that the mainstream media is not going to tell you the stories of those people who have had their lives destroyed by H1N1 swine flu vaccine side effects. Since the mainstream media will not give these victims a voice, we will.'

Russia Could Withdraw from WHO Over Swine Flu Corruption


'A Russian deputy of the Duma has called for Russia to withdraw from the WHO if an investigation into the alleged collusion between the WHO and pharmaceutical companies on the swine flu scandal proves to be accurate, according to reports in the European media.


'Igor Barinov, Member of the Commission of the State Parliament (Duma) in Charge of Corruption, said that there needed to be an investigation into whether experts advising WHO received money from pharmaceutical industry and whether this influenced WHO to declare a pandemic level 6 emergency for the first time in 40 years in spite of the fact that the swine flu is neither lethal nor spreading rapidly.

'Danish journalists belonging to "Information" concluded that the swine flu could be the biggest case of corruption in our era after examining links between experts of WHO and the pharmaceutical companies.

'WHO recommended the purchase of the controversial Swiss-based Roche’s Tamilfu in spite of evidence the drug causes serious side effects. The Ukrainian ministry for health bought large and excessive stocks of Tamiflu'.

'Nearly seven out of 10 people in the 18-to-29 age group said they did not plan to heed warnings to get vaccinated, a Washington Post-ABC News poll found. Puzzled experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they are so concerned about young people's lack of concern about swine flu that they are conducting surveys to tease out the basis for the blasé attitudes.'

Cooking off the grid, part 1: Building a solar cooker


Building a solar oven

'It didn’t take much material to build a solar oven: just two boxes (one smaller than the other, enough for a several-inch gap), a few sheets of cardboard, all-purpose glue (you want a glue, like Elmer’s white glue, that will not release gases at high temperature), a brush for spreading the glue, aluminum foil, newspaper, a piece of glass the size of the small box (I used one from a picture frame), a coat hanger, silicone sealer, and various tools (a sharp utility knife, scissors, wire cutters). After acquiring all of the necessary parts, I think I spent five or six hours building the oven.'

The Many Faces of Big Pharma's Disease Mongering


Photo Deirdre Hamill / The Arizona Republic

'Most people blame Big Pharma and the docs in its pocket for elevating everyday anxiety to depression, depression to bipolar disease and childhood behavior problems to major psychiatric diseases.

But there are others to thank for the national pathology of creating and treating diseases that aren't even there.

There's the 200 US medical education and communication companies (MECCs) who ghostwrite journal articles for Big Pharma--"just sign here, Doc; we've reviewed the data"--for $20,000 to $40,000 per article.

Like Complete Healthcare Communications (CHC) whose phalanx of 40 medical writers, editors and librarians has submitted over 500 manuscripts to journals for clients Pfizer, Sanofi-Aventis, Wyeth, Schering-Plough and AstraZeneca according to its promotional materials, with an acceptance rate of 80 percent.'

How Big Pharma Profits from Swine Flu

The Novartis swine flu vaccine Celtura

The Novartis swine flu vaccine Celtura

Once spurned by drugmakers as low-margin and risky, vaccines to fight diseases such as H1N1 are now a growing business for Novartis and others.


The Resurgence of Vaccines

'It wasn't too long ago that vaccines were deemed the poor relation of the pharmaceutical industry. Their complexity and high manufacturing cost -- coupled with relatively low margins and risk of major litigation -- deterred all but a handful of players, including Novartis, Britain's GlaxoSmithKline, France's Sanofi Aventis, New Jersey's Merck, and Wyeth -- now a unit of Pfizer.

More recently, though, there's been something of a vaccine renaissance. That's partly because the industry is now facing serious challenges to its core prescription drug business. Some $135 billion in prescription drug sales will lose patent protection in the next five years, and there's little in drug companies' pipelines to replace those sales, says IMS Health consultant Alan Sheppard.'

The reality behind the swine flu conspiracy



'The message is clear – we are all going to die from swine flu. It spreads fast, it is dangerous, and it must be feared – says the World Health Organization.

But worry not – there is a way to save yourself. Just get a flu shot – and purchase a remedy for the deadly virus. Those are the instructions from the WHO.

However, the WHO may find itself coughing up explanations, as more and more scientists and health researchers, and even journalists, are starting to question the organization’s motives behind raising the alert so quickly.

According to the Danish Daily Information newspaper, the WHO and pharmaceutical companies are suffering from the profit bug. Or, to put it simply, the chief health care organization in the world has teamed up with the drug makers to create a phantom monster – and to rake in cash by selling a remedy for it.'

Are Ukraine Black Death Cases result of IMF Loans ?




'While attention is turned to the non-proven H1N1 as cause of a recent wave of illnesses and even some deaths across Ukraine, few if any have bothered to look at the public health consequences of Ukraine’s program with the International Monetary Fund. When the global financial crisis erupted into a systemic crisis in September 2008, one of the countries most devastated was Ukraine, where foreign lending had created an untenable speculative bubble that burst with a vengeance leaving the Ukraine currency falling like a stone and bankruptcies everywhere in one of Europe’s poorest countries.'

'IMF demands have become politicized in the heated Ukranian election battle for early 2010. Prime Minister Julia Tymoshenko has agreed to IMF demands for cuts in public wages and pensions. Her rival President Viktor Yushchenko has rescinded the cuts, putting the IMF loan on hold.'

Ukraine's Phantom Flu




How Yulia Tymoshenko created a swine flu panic to get herself elected president.


'As GDP contracted by over 15 percent in the third quarter of 2009 and Tymoshenko continued to bicker with Yushchenko, her approval ratings plummeted from a high of 47 percent in the spring of 2005 to just 14 percent in October. (And that was an improvement from her summer numbers.) Yanukovich, on the other hand, a man few Ukrainians trust because he twice did jail time for unclear reasons and who was suspected of poisoning Yushchenko, has seen his numbers climb to double that.

Thanks to her vigorous response to a swine-flu panic she herself manufactured, however, Tymoshenko has been steadily catching up, nearly halving the gap in the polls. Outfoxed, Yanukovich tried to return the parry by ordering more surgical masks, but the damage was already done.'

Truth Out: World Health Organization ‘Manufactured’ The Global Swine Flu Scare – Suspected Of Corruption

Infowars Ireland, Staff Writer

'The Swine Flu Pandemic which Novye Izvestija has written about many times, may be the most ambitious scam and corruption of our time. In any case, the enormous commercial aspect of the “swine flu scare” is already evident.

The same conclusion was reached by Danish journalists who expertly examined the links between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, who gained wealth by selling drugs to counter the disease. It turns out, for example, that many scientists who sit on various committees of WHO, carefully concealed the fact that they receive money from the giant pharmaceutical companies of the world.

According to the international investment bank JP Morgan, the pharmaceutical industry will make more than 7 Billion Euros this year on the sale of A/H1N1 vaccines. Leading western countries have ordered enough doses to vaccinate either their entire population (such as Australia) or one third (Germany and several other EU member States). Factories making the vaccines and pills are working around the clock, in four shift rotations, with a backlog of orders …they are not experiencing the global economic crisis as others might.'

Business is Booming - Flu Vaccines no risk money makers - Novartis opens new flu vaccine plant in U.S.

'The bioreactors are empty and running just for show for now, but Novartis opened its first U.S. flu vaccine plant on Tuesday, the first in the country to make flu vaccines out of cells instead of eggs.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius toured the plant, whose cell-based technology is designed to be cleaner, quicker and more predictable than the current way most influenza vaccines are made using eggs and will help alleviate the U.S. dependence on imported vaccines.

The bioreactors used to incubate the cells with the virus should also be able to scale up more quickly to make larger quantities of vaccine when needed -- such as during pandemics.'

Peddling Paranoia

Peddling paranoia
Selling cures for imaginary diseases is where the drug industry really rakes in the cash, argues Alan Cassels. Real need barely enters the picture.



'To create ‘new’ diseases Berman says drug companies hire public relations agencies and work with academics. ‘You find a professor working in a university and fund that professor to write a book, or to do a media tour around the country. Or you find a public figure, a sports figure or an actor, to go around and meet and work with journalists, and to do work with public forums, so you literally create this need.’ '


'Many people still believe that medicine is a noble pursuit, dedicated to curing humankind’s ills. But the reality is that ‘cure’ is passé. According to Alex Hittle, a biotech analyst at AG Edwards in St Louis: ‘We sometimes joke that when you’re doing a clinical trial, there are two possible disasters. The first disaster is if you kill people. The second disaster is if you cure them. The truly good drugs are the ones you can use chronically for a long, long time.’ '

Ukrainian Health minister proposes considering production of Ukrainian swine flu vaccine


Hmmmm.... Sounds like a lucrative and recession proof, 'pandemic' driven, Big Gov/Big Pharma business opportunity.Why wait for a market to emerge when you can easily create both the product and the market at the same time. To further sweeten the deal and remove all 'risk'-- the Ukrainian Government should simply decree that the new vaccinations will be MANDATORY, and that the manufacturers will be exempt from all liability. Then' they' can sit back and watch the money roll in.

--Health Maven

'Ukrainian Health Minister Vasyl Kniazevych has called for the production of a domestically produced vaccine against A/H1N1 flu.

"[At a government meeting on Wednesday] I proposed considering draft resolutions on the creation of a working group to study the possibility of producing our own vaccine," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Wednesday.

Kniazevych also proposed including in the group representatives of the National Academy of Sciences, the Health Ministry, the Economy Ministry, the Finance Ministry and other agencies in order to consider the expediency of such production and the possibility of financing this project.'

Canadian Health Officials Claim Only One Death Due to Swine Flu Jab: Mystery of why 170,000 Doses Urgently Recalled

'Dr. David Butler-Jones said the person who died - identified in the media as a Quebec man in his 80s - met the criteria for having an anaphylactic reaction. But he said it's still not clear whether that or other health problems caused the death.'

"There were a number of other situations. So exactly what the ultimate cause was or what the issues are, that will take some time, I understand, to investigate," said Butler-Jones.'

Yoga Boosts Heart Health, New Research Finds




ScienceDaily (Nov. 25, 2009)
'Heart rate variability, a sign of a healthy heart, has been shown to be higher in yoga practitioners than in non-practitioners, according to research to be published in a forthcoming issue of the International Journal of Medical Engineering and Informatics.

The autonomic nervous system regulates the heart rate through two routes -- the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The former causes the heart rate to rise, while, the parasympathetic slows it. When working well together, the two ensure that the heart rate is steady but ready to respond to changes caused by eating, the fight or flight response, or arousal.

New Vaccine for Yersinia Pestis to be Unveiled Soon?


by FTO

'Whether this has anything to do with whats going on in the Ukraine I am not sure but in August there was a patent filed for antibodies against Yersinia Pestis otherwise known as the pneumonic plague.

'It was filed by Hill, James (Salisbury, GB) ,Williamson, Ethel Diane (Salisbury, GB) and Titball, Richard William (Salisbury, GE) and the assignee was The Secretary of State for Defense in Her Britannic Majesty's Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (GB).

'A interesting part of the patent is this part:

'"Mab 7.3 was administered −4 hours, +24 hours, +48 hours, or +96 hours relative to s.c. Y. pestis challenge. Protection was observed when antibody was given up to 48 hours post-infection. Also, a delayed time to death was observed in the +96 hours treatment group. One of +96 hours treatment group had died prior to antibody administration and the remainder displayed signs of plague indistinguishable from untreated control animals, suggesting that even when symptoms of plague are apparent antibody therapy can delay death. Mice were treated with Mab 7.3 at −4 hours, +24 hours, +48 hours or +60 hours relative to aerosol infection. Protection was seen in groups that received antibody 24 hours and 48 hours after challenge. All mice treated at +60 hours died, but a statistically significant delay in the TTD was observed, compared with untreated animals."

'What is more interesting is why was this patent filed in August this year. Maybe its just coincidence but we felt like putting [the patent] out there so people can decide for themselves.'

In Iowa, a report that doctors are seeing “very heavy, wet hemorrhagic lungs, lungs with a lot of blood in them” in H1N1 patients is creating concerns among health experts that the deadly Ukraine H1N1 has already spread there.

'In addition, a report of Tamiflu-resistant H1N1 swine flu in North Carolina is raising questions about the ability of medical authorities to combat H1N1 if thousands of people do start dying. If deadly H1N1 swine flu mutations have already reached the United States, what does that mean? Doctors in Ukraine have been reporting that victims of H1N1 there are experiencing violent hemorrhaging in their lungs. As the patients near death, their lungs reportedly become as “black as charcoal” and literally begin to disintegrate. Will this start happening soon inside the U.S.?'

200 DEATHS IN CANADA FROM PANDEMRIX SWINE FLU VACCINE, REPORTS EURONEWS ( Error) ?


'British drugs giant GlaxoSmithKline has warned the Canadian medical authorities that a batch of its anti-H1N1 vaccine can trigger potentially dangerous allergic reactions. The Canadians have withdrawn the batch from use and are testing it after it produced a range of serious reactions, notably in the heart and lungs. The recall affects 172,000 dises of the Arepanrix vaccine.

“We’ve been asked by the manufacturer GSK not to use this vaccine at this time pending further investigation,” said Manitoba chief medical officer Joel Kettner.

'Thirty-six Canadians, including one little boy whose face swelled up like a balloon, suffered severe allergic reactions after vaccination. 200 others died.'

“It is a serious thing that has the potential to kill – but fortunately seems to be relatively rare,” said Dr Neil Rau, an infectious disease specialist.

Canada has been particularly badly hit by the flu virus, and has vaccinated around a fifth of its population, or nearly seven million people, already. GSK has sold seven point five million doses to Canada.'

The Medical Con Game

http://lefteyeonthemedia.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/doctor-holding-stethoscope.jpg


by Jon Rappoport

'The history of emergency, crisis, acute trauma medicine is the history of applying one cruel measure of success or failure: did the patient live or die?

There was no hiding the result. It was there for all to see.

The soldier lying wounded on the battlefield, the crash victim extracted from his car, the rescued half-frozen mountain climber---do the doctors put them back together, or do the patients fail to make it?

Over time, this branch of medicine achieved spectacular results. Yes, even ER heroics can be overworked and drive the patient into chronic disability, but all in all, we would have to say the field of emergency medical practice has been a major success.

The Big Con enters the scene when doctors pretend that such achievements can be assumed and inferred over the whole range of practice: all surgeries, drug therapy, treatment of chronic diseases, so-called mental disorders.

But through favoritism, partnerships with governments, and other monopolistic practices, modern medicine has been able to blur the standards of success or failure.

“We are the Only Ones. If we save a patient, if the patient succumbs, if the patient is injured by our work---it doesn’t matter, because no one in the world would be able to do better. Every treatment we apply is the best that science can offer at the moment. Therefore, we’re exempt from blame.”

Modern medicine has awesome PR capability. It has used that force to disseminate the notion that its successes in the ER are mirrored in all other branches of its work. And, of course, this is the big lie.

Because a doctor can repair a broken leg, does this mean he can wield a dangerous drug like Ritalin and better the life of a child who is bored in the classroom? Because the doctor can break up a blood clot that is threatening to kill a patient in the next hour, does that mean he can help a woman whose breast tumor would never progress to a dangerous stage---by removing both of her breasts?

Because the doctor can temporarily beat down an inflammation that is cutting off vital organ function, does that mean he can assist an immune-deficient patient by giving him a drug that nullifies the ability of immune cells to reproduce?

Because the doctor can stay an infection that has spiraled out of control, does that mean he can erase a prolonged state of depression by prescribing a medicine that unpredictably scrambles brain neurotransmitter processes?

These are questions that make no sense to most doctors. Relying on unscientific, slanted, fraudulent, incompetent studies, doctors will assert that their treatments for hundreds of conditions represent the frontier of what humans are able to do to help one another.

In these treatments, all real standards of success and failure are missing. There is no yardstick. There is only self-inflating propaganda.

When the practice of healing loses its way, and refuses to confess its lies, one result is the telling of bigger and more damaging lies.

The whole efficacy testing of vaccines relies on the faulty premise that the production of antibodies is the only goal. If a new vaccine can induce antibodies, it is deemed an unqualified success. However, in the last 25 years, antibody tests used to diagnose diseases have gained a new ascendance. If a patient is found to have antibodies to a particular disease-germ, he can be said to be infected by that disease.

On the one hand, production of antibodies via a vaccine is a sign of immunity to a disease-germ. But discovering those same antibodies during a diagnostic test is taken to mean the patient is ill or will become ill.

Admitting this gross contradiction would be akin to prosecutors, all over country, saying the last 20 years of their criminal cases have been wholly tainted by invented lab work, whose sole purpose was gaining convictions in court.

Once upon a time, it was well understood that the mere detection of a germ in the patient was insufficient for a disease diagnosis. It was necessary to establish that an army of millions of these germs was active in the body. Now, that is overturned. Again, the standard has been blurred and decimated. This sea change has paved the way for the declaration of epidemics where no epidemics exist. It has emboldened and empowered public health agencies all over the world to force vaccines and medicines on populations.

Following the money is easy. Drug companies accrue enormous profits from these escalating medical lies. In fact, the companies work hand in glove with medical researchers to foster the various cons.

In the immunization arena, no true controlled trials of new vaccines are carried out. There are no long-term studies which compare the outcomes in matched groups, where one group receives a vaccine and the other group does not. By “matched,” I mean equivalent nutritional status, equivalent environmental (toxic burden) status, equivalent immune-function, equivalent medical history.

The absence of such trials---and the accompanying lies about “scientific veracity”---benefits the vaccine manufacturers, who can claim efficacy and safety for their products without the application of a true standard of success or failure.

When a child who has just received a DPT shot begins to scream and suddenly spikes with a high fever and experiences seizures and subsequent brain damage, you are seeing the result of these lies and the intentional eradication of all standards.

You’re seeing how cold and vicious the practice of medicine can be, and how far it can depart from the simple notion of saving a human being’s life when he is lying on a battlefield or a highway.'

Gratitude and Health


'Academics have long theorized that expressions of thanks promote health and happiness and give optimism and energy to the downtrodden. Now, the study of gratitude has become a surprisingly burgeoning field, and research indicates being thankful might help people actually feel better.
