There also exists a sleeping sickness of the soul. Its most dangerous aspect is that one is unaware of its coming. That is why you have to be careful ... You should realize that your soul suffers if you live superficially. People need times in which to concentrate, when they can search their inmost selves. It is tragic that most men have not achieved this feeling of self-awareness. And finally, when they hear the inner voice they do not want to listen anymore. They carry on as before so as not to be constantly reminded of what they have lost. But as for you, resolve to keep a quiet time ... Then your souls can speak to you without being drowned out by the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

'Blueberries -- in pies, pancakes and muffins -- take me right back to my childhood summer vacations at the beach. Or, based on the latest research I’ve seen on this super-food, it may actually be that eating all those blueberries sharpened my cognitive abilities, making their deliciousness all the more memorable!Perhaps the connection is not quite so direct, but I just read a study reporting that blueberries have a profound effect on human brain function.'
'I call mercury fillings part of the "dark ages" of modern dentistry. Today, more and more dentists are realizing, "Hey, maybe this highly toxic metal doesn't belong in the human body." At the same time, dental clients are increasingly realizing they need to get that mercury removed, because as you chew and breathe, some of that mercury is being ingested by your digestive tract or inhaled into your lungs. Little by little, those mercury fillings disappear out of your teeth. Where do they go? Right into your body.'
'There are extraordinarily simple, safe and effective ways of treating the diseases of our time that are affordable to most if not all of humanity. These treatments can be organized into a new form of medicine, which can be mainstreamed because they are backed by medical research and science. This is not to say that patients do not have to resolve crucial, difficult and complex issues of mind, emotion and spirit but it does mean that the physical body does not have to be surrendered to an expensive and terrorist form of dated medicine that hurts more than it helps.'

'Why did Monsanto Develop an Aluminum Resistance Gene?
Monsanto is currently marketing an aluminum resistance gene. Here’s the spin, folks:
Small-scale, resource-poor farmers in developing countries face daily stresses, including poor soils, drought, and lack of inputs. Ongoing trends such as climate change and population growth will likely exacerbate binding stresses. A new generation of genetically engineered (GE) crop research aims to alleviate these pressures through the improvement of subsistence crops—such as cassava, sorghum, and millet—that incorporate traits such as tolerance to drought, water, and aluminum in soils as well as plants with more efficient nitrogen and phosphorus use. (http://www.ifpri.org/publication/delivering-genetically-engineered-crops-poor-farmers)
Now, let’s take a look at journalist Michael Murphy’s research into chemtrails, geo-engineering, and the fact that extremely high levels of aluminum and barium are found in water, snow and soil, in areas shown to have heavy chemtrail patterns (three-part video):'

“As a scientist, actively working in the field[of GMO] I find that it is very, very unfair to use our fellow citizens as guinea pigs.”

'Since the 1990s world agriculture and food production has undergone the most radical transformation in history. With very little public awareness, in just a few short years genetically modified foods have come to dominate both global agriculture and supermarket shelf space.
What are GM foods?
What are their effects on human health and nutrition?
What are the effects on human DNA?
What have we done to our food?'
'There is growing evidence that Americans would have better health and a lower incidence of cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast if they consumed more iodine. A decrease in iodine intake coupled with an increased consumption of competing halogens, fluoride and bromide, has created an epidemic of iodine deficiency in America.'
'Is modern medicine actually "scientific"? The gold standard for modern medicine is the double-blind and placebo-controlled trial. But there are serious problems with these studies, unknown to most, but widely acknowledged by researchers.
Scientists can easily set up a study that shows a drug is effective for a very limited period of time. Most studies of drugs for psychiatric conditions last only six weeks. What happens after that? Do they still work? Do they start to cause terrible side effects?
The studies will not tell you.'
Meet Peter Proctor, in the movie [above], the man with a mission to save Indian agriculture from the throes of the so called “green” revolution.
Modern agriculture is nothing short of “war” and it has taken an enormous toll on the environment – toxic chemicals in the soil and food chains, soil erosion, loss of humus and soil fertility, water scarcity, desertification, algal blooms in rivers due to pesticide run-offs, loss of biodiversity in ecosystems and in varieties of food crops.
Mega industrial farming has no spirit, no consideration for people, environment or social justice. The result is “untruthful” food – a product of layers of artificial chemicals, and many a time, genetic modification, and only serves a ruthless globalised machinery of “free” trade.'
Researchers found that a pistachio-enriched diet resulted in increases in serum antioxidants and decreases in oxidized low-density lipoproteins (LDL), or so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol, when compared to a diet without pistachios.
The study, conducted by researchers at The Pennsylvania State University, is published in the June 2010 issue of The Journal of Nutrition.'
'In the world's richest country, the trend is shocking, disturbing and appalling. In its 2009 report on "Hunger and Homelessness in US Cities," the US Conference of Mayors stated: "Hunger and homelessness (are) at record levels in US cities," citing an overall 26% demand increase over the past year and 19% more homelessness. Yet worsening conditions leave millions on their own and out of luck because Washington has other priorities excluding them.
"At a time of historic economic crisis, the issues of hunger and homelessness in America are more prevalent than ever." Cities are hard-pressed to handle them, and planned budget cuts and revenue shortfalls will strap them well into the future.'
'Drug companies are not here to bring health to the population but to scam them on one level for vast amounts of money, by treating the symptoms and not addressing the cause.'
-Sir William Ossler, MD (1849-1919)
"Over and over I explain to patients, 'Your pain, misery and illness results from your own dietary mistakes and drugs. You are suffering because you are filled with toxic wastes caused by your diet of poorly selected food filled with artificial flavorings, preservatives, synthetics, and over-processed ingredients—too much stimulating food and too few natural vitamins from vegetables and fruits....' "

'It must be remembered that the first job of any conspiracy, whether it be in politics, crime or within a business office, is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists. The conspirators' success will be determined largely by their ability to do this.'
"And we have made of ourselves living cesspools, and driven doctors to invent names for our diseases."
"If we doctors threw all our medicines into the sea, it would be that much better for our patients and that much worse for the fishes."
-- Oliver Wendell Holmes, M.D.
The medicinal potential of marijuana is well documented in North America also--in 1860, for example, the convection of the Committee on Cannabis Indica of the Ohio State Medical Society reported on cannabis' therapeutic applications in treating a vast number of ailments, including: mania, whooping cough, asthma, chronic bronchitis, tetanus, epilepsy and withdrawal from alcohol.
Between the years of 1840 and 1860, more than 100 articles were published in the medical community recommending it for various disorders.
Although the extent of the medicinal value of cannabis is debated by some, well-documented beneficial effects have been published over thousands of years. Among these are: the amelioration of nausea and vomiting, stimulation of hunger, (in particular in chemotherapy/ AIDS patients), lowered intraocular eye pressure (shown to be effective for treating glaucoma), as well as general analgesic effects (pain reliever), and the list goes on.
Highly obscured, (until the interent), yet even more remarkable, is mounting evidence showing that cannabis may CURE a variety of conditions including cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and depression.
On October 7, 2003 a patent entitled "Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants" (Patent No. #6,630,507) was awarded to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, based on research done at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
This patent claims that cannabinoids are "useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases." It states that this 'new found' property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of ailments.
"The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia." Synthetic cannabinoids are marketed as Marinol in the United States and Germany, and Cesamet in Canada.
On 19 October 2009 the US Deputy Attorney General issued a US Department of Justice memorandum to "All United States Attorneys" providing clear clarification and guidance to federal prosecutors in US States that have enacted laws authorizing the medical use of marijuana and recommending against prosecuting patients using medical cannabis products according to state laws.
