'There are lots of ways that too much estrogen in your system can make you sick. It can cause heart disease and five different kinds of cancer. And it can make you fat, impotent, depressed, and tired. Too much estrogen is also the biggest undiagnosed cause of prostate disease in men.
And here’s something else about the estrogen we’re putting in our food that’s very disturbing. Little girls are getting sexually mature features at younger and younger ages.'

'This video is worth more than a thousand words when it comes to illustrating the very real danger of mercury fillings. The video helps to powerfully demonstrate that if you have these “silver” fillings then every time you eat, chew, visit the dentist or drink hot coffee, the mercury vapors are released directly into your mouth and body.
The poisonous vapors are odorless, colorless and tasteless, however, so you won’t be able to tell that they’re there. It takes holding a tooth up in black light to be able to see the toxic shadows of mercury being released.
A single dental amalgam filling releases as much as 15 micrograms of mercury per day. The average individual has eight amalgam fillings and could absorb up to 120 micrograms of mercury per day. In contrast, eating mercury-tainted seafood will expose you to about 2.3 micrograms per day -- and that is enough for scientists to call for a worldwide warning.'
'Millions of Americans have daily stress in their lives. Cardiologist John Kennedy has developed 'The 15 Minute Heart Cure' -- a set of breathing techniques you can do anytime, anywhere. It requires no drugs, no surgery and his techniques give you the ability to reduce your blood pressure using brain power alone.
Dr. Kennedy says it is within our power to change the way we respond to stress. Using visualization and breathing, Dr. Kennedy believes people can calm themselves to better their health. "You can teach your body how to slow down, how to be present, how to relax. And what this does is it helps you concentrate and protect your heart all at the same time."'

Do you question authority? Fail to accept conventional wisdom? Lose your temper when you hear a politician make a promise that you know he or she can’t keep?
If so, you may be mentally ill, according to the most recent revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). In this revision, psychiatrists hope to add dozens of new mental disorders. Unfortunately, many of these so-called illnesses target people who merely think or behave differently from the majority population.
A case in point is “oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).” DSM defines ODD as “an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior toward authority figures.” Symptoms include losing one’s temper, annoying people and being “touchy.” Other “disorders” include antisocial behavior, arrogance, cynicism and narcissism. Sounds like many of my readers!
While diagnosis of ODD “victims” focuses on children, there’s no reason why ODD can’t exist in adults. Indeed, ODD can evolve into “conduct disorder” (CD), which DSM defines as “wherein the rights of others or social norms are violated.”
Uh-oh. So violating “social norms” is now a mental illness as well.
Let’s connect the dots, shall we? There’s a long and sordid history of governments using psychiatry for political repression. In the Soviet Union, thousands of political prisoners were detained in mental hospitals. There they were isolated from friends and family, and many cases, forcibly medicated. Nazi Germany went even further: it murdered over 180,000 psychiatric patients.
Laws in most states allow child protective services agencies to forcibly medicate your children. Indeed, if you fail to administer drugs ordered by a physician or have your children submit to vaccinations, you can be imprisoned.
As The Washington Post observed:
“If seven-year-old Mozart tried composing his concertos today, he might be diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and medicated into barren normality.”
The conversion of personality differences into psychiatric disorders, and the forced medication of children, is a dangerous trend. It is but a short step to extend these laws to adults who have a pattern of “negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures.”
I’d prefer a different approach: institutionalizing the psychiatrists that came up with all these new disorders. Perhaps we could call their condition “overmedication psychosis.” And those of us with ODD, CD, or who simply don’t like the government telling us how to live our lives could breathe a bit easier.

'Chronic disease is the number one killer in the United States, accounting for about four out of five deaths in America each year yet most doctors have not the slightest idea of what is really causing this. The medical establishment has not been able to solve or cure any of the chronic diseases facing humanity simply because they don’t really want to know anything about the causes. So medical officials go on and on about the flu and about viruses instead of addressing the fact that pharmaceutical medicine are one of the greatest sources of toxic exposure – and so is dentistry.
'Actually this is a plan by design of the pharmaceutical manufacturers, meaning the pharmaceutical giants have manipulated the entire bunch of us – patients and doctors – to continue to look to their pharmaceutical drugs as the end all, be all of these chronic diseases. Their sole intent is to keep us on their drugs, not to find a real cure, and it’s of little consequence to them that these drugs cause harm and suffering.'
'Good health requires, above all else, strong and steady blood flow through clear blood vessels.
Healthy blood circulation delivers fresh nutrients to your cells, and prevents accumulation of waste materials within your cells. Both of these actions are equally necessary for healthy cells.
This basic health principle is at the heart of an alternative treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS), discovered by an Italian physician and researcher, Dr. Paolo Zamboni.'
'In the concluding part of this series, we will learn about six more superfoods that can make a difference to our lives by making us healthy and free from disease. Learn how these superfoods fight aging and give you a shot at good health, all contributing to a better quality of life.
The earlier parts of this series showed us that superfoods do not possess just a single nutrient, but many. They offer us many benefits at the same time so in effect you get more nutrition with lesser amount of food that you eat. The earlier parts also explained why we should eat superfoods. They are nutrient rich and help in flushing out toxins more frequently, leaving you with a healthy body. Superfoods are also known for their role in keeping weight under control and for helping us become healthy without relying on inactive vitamins and mineral supplements.'
'The H1N1 flu scare was a dismal failure. People informed about the health risks refused to get the vaccination. The United Nation’s World Health Organization tried to stampede people into getting the shot by declaring a level six pandemic. The CDC issued apocalyptic warnings. Most people ignored them.
The medical establishment, however, has not given up its efforts to convince people toxic vaccines are good for them.
A study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal insists the seasonal flu vaccine reduces the risk of heart attack. In a study of almost 79,000 patients at 379 family practices in England and Wales, researchers claim annual flu vaccinations were associated with a significant drop in the rate of a first heart attack, according to the Canadian Press.'
'The shiitake mushroom proves looks aren’t everything: What could be scruffier or more taciturn-looking as it hunkers down on your grocer’s produce shelf? Don’t be so quick to judge, though. This mushroom-with-an-attitude is a study in contrasts: earthy but ethereal, unimpressive but magnificent. It performs in a cast of potent fungi known as the medicinal mushrooms, which number more than 200 worldwide and include others of sterling repute, such as reishi and maitake. Unlike the Asians and Europeans who have cherished these mushrooms for millennia, we in North America are just beginning to discover their merits.'
'Medicinal mushrooms enhance the body’s general resilience and vigor, stimulate the immune system, and confer antioxidant benefits. Since the 1960s, science has been catching up to tradition, and many clinical studies now demonstrate that these mushrooms do indeed shore up the body’s defenses against such afflictions as cancer, infection and heart disease.'
'Their article tackles controversial topics such as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and microwave radiation and dismisses their dangers as misinformation.
The contributing editor of EatingWell, Joyce Hendley, who authored the article ironically states "the most persistent nutrition myths are those that contain at least a kernel of truth." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
Here's a play-by-play on the blatant lies the author promotes as truths.'

The Bottom Line
'We are already having to deal with food that is injected with foreign genes (GMOs), blasted with pesticides, irradiated beyond recognition, pasteurized, homogenized, scraped off a slaughterhouse floor, and making us sicker by the minute, and now Codex guidelines are about to set the minimum and maximum levels of so-called “nutrients” we are allowed to have. If it doesn’t meet the minimum NRV guideline, just add a little more GMO such as golden rice, chock full of artificial inserted “vitamins” to the food supply and force feed it to the public via stealth, free trade sanctions and the SPS agreement, and by all means make sure that the upper nutrient level wouldn’t keep a hamster alive. And if a company or nation doesn’t meet Codex guidelines? Then it is creating a barrier to free trade and can be prosecuted under the law.
And we just go along with it. Better to run to the corner store and get more of those genetically engineered foods and vitamins designed to strip us of our humanity and alter our DNA so that big pharma can keep us in its death grip and suck the remaining life out of our bones by “treating” the diseases created by our “new and improved” lifestyles with even more “new and improved” designer drugs. Yes Martha, there is a Santa Claus. Here, take this pill.'
'This is the first half of the shocking but extremely and timelessly informative video documentary "Vaccination - The Hidden Truth" (1998) where 15 people, including Dr. Viera Scheibner (a PhD researcher), five medical doctors, other researchers, and parents' experiences, reveal what is really going on in relation to illness and vaccines. With so much government and medical promotion of vaccination for prevention of disease, ironically the important facts presented here come from the orthodox medicine's own peer-reviewed research, of which a total of well over 100,000 pages has been studied by those interviewed.
The result is a damning account of the ineffectiveness of vaccines and their often harmful effects. It shows that parents are not being told the truth by the media, the Health Department and the medical establishment, with a medical doctor, Dr. Mark Donohoe, confessing that "It is a problem for me that I am part of a profession that is systematically lying to people."
Find out how vaccines are proven to be both useless and have harmful effects to your health and how they are often erroneously believed to be compulsory. Many people simply refuse to believe the truth regardless of how clear it is, but the impeccable documentation presented in this amazing video has changed the minds of many who have seen it.
This first half explains most, but not 100%, of the reason for counterproductive effect of vaccines. The last part of the reason, which also is published in medical research, is in the second half of the video. To view or purchase the whole DVD/video, go to www.vaccination.inoz.com. Please note that this video was very expensive to make and sales and donations support the freely provided Vaccination Information Service, which exists only for the benefit of you and your children.'

'“Pharmageddon” Overtaking U.S. Baby Boomers The drug industry has successfully turned our society into a “pharmacracy” where every twitch and hiccup is deemed treatable with another prescription. Unfortunately, treating disease symptoms with drugs will invariably create other health problems, which lead to yet another prescription to counteract the side effects from the first one, followed by another one, and another… It’s an evil circle that is now leading to a rash of prescription drug addictions and overdose deaths dubbed “pharmageddon.”
'Pharmageddon is "the prospect of a world in which medicines and medicine produce more ill-health than health, and when medical progress does more harm than good" -- and it is no longer a prospect but fully upon us. Those most at risk from dying from this new drug crisis are people you would least expect: baby boomers whose doctors are only too happy to prescribe multiple medications.
'As a result, in the last 20 years deaths from accidental drug overdoses have increased five-fold and, as CBS News reported, unintentional overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental death in 15 states and the District of Columbia. So we’re seeing a mounting death toll directly attributable to prescription drugs.'
'Most people do not look at water as a nutrient but it is, and it is the most important one. We can live for a few months without food but will last only about 10 days without water. Next to the air we breathe water is the most important element. Every life-giving and healing process that happens inside our body happens with water. Most experts insist that the majority of Americans are chronically under-hydrated and should drink more water, and the reasons behind their insistence are solid.
Dr. Charles Peterson of NIH says dehydration is mainly a problem among Americans suffering from other illnesses, such as diabetes, or those who undergo extreme exertion, but this is not really true. Anyone can suffer from dehydration and the facts seem to point to the fact that most people suffer from mild dehydration at one time or another. Though everyone understands the vital importance of water, it is impossible to find solid information about dehydration statistics. On the Internet the consensus is that 75 percent of Americans are dehydrated but medical science does not weigh in on this statistic.'
'Sunil Sharma can’t believe his twin daughters Avika and Anika are no more. The textile merchant from Ghaziabad had never imagined that a measles vaccine at a private nursing home in the town would take the life of the his nine-month-old daughters.
Sunil claims his daughters died minutes after being administered the vaccine, usually given when a baby is nine months old, at Divya Nursing Home. Akhil Sharma, an uncle of the twins, said: “I took them for the vaccination around 6 pm on Wednesday. They were given the vaccination around 7.15 pm. In 15 minutes, the children started breathing heavily. We rushed to the doctor who gave them oxygen. But the babies had died by them. Still Dr Satyaveer Singh referred them to Sarvodya Hospital.”
“My wife fainted on hearing about the death of our daughters. She could not believe the news,” said Sunil, who stays in Swarnjayanti Puram.'
Hidden Government Papers on the Measles Vaccine Exposed'Christina England vactruth.com 05/20/2010 How a mother is supposed to decide what vaccines are safe, when the governments change their minds so frequently, is anyone’s guess. One minute the government makes it categorically clear that the measles vaccine should never, under any circumstances, be given to a child under the age of nine months, the next minute they are saying the complete opposite and actually advising it. Take this circular that was issued to the government in 1968, entitled Notes on the use and storage of Measles vaccine (live attenuated) for routine vaccines for example.'
'I’ve already written about food recalls a number of times, but the point about finding sustainable food is one that I find must be revisited often…because there are so many misconceptions going around about why simply avoiding one brand over another is not enough.
And I’ll also tell you why it’s really important to know your farmer and what practices he or she uses to raise the chickens that lay the eggs you are going to eat.
Read the conversation that convinced me to write this post:
Last week, someone in my family (who shall go nameless to keep the peace, and he never reads my blog anyway) called and asked me about eggs. He wanted to know where I buy my eggs. I replied that I buy them from the Capital City Public Market (in downtown Boise, ID) farmer’s market from a farmer from Payette, ID (it’s about 60 miles away from where I live in Boise). The farm is Matthew’s All Natural Meats.'

Parallel Universes: Flu Shots For Pregnant WomenExhibit One: "The American Medical Assn., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the March of Dimes and seven other groups sent a letter to healthcare professionals Wednesday urging them to counsel pregnant patients to get a seasonal flu shot. ... Many women fear getting the vaccine because they think it might harm the fetus. But the organizations note that the vaccine had been given to millions of pregnant women over the last decade and had not been shown to harm either the women or their infants." -- Los Angeles Times, September 15, 2010.
Exhibit Two: Official product label, written by drug maker and approved by FDA, for Fluzone flu vaccine: "Safety and efficacy of Fluzone have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children less than six months of age." (HERE) (All flu vaccines, thimerosal-containing or not, include this warning.)
'Yesterday you may have read Part I of this series about vaccinations and choices, and whether or not a parent should take their child into the doctor on the recommended schedule for immunization “protection”.
A growing body of research and inquiry is starting to question the absolution of vaccinating children as frequently as they are now required to be immunized, as well as the content of the vaccines being used to provide “immunity”.
The second part of this series will feature an important video about autism and related disorder awareness, my family’s experience with vaccines, and information about informed consent as it relates to vaccines and choices parents have when they are deciding whether to vaccinate or not.
Watch this informative video from Generation Rescue, Jenny McCarthy’s activist organization bringing together parents, scientists, and educators to learn and teach about recovered children and how their parents reversed their conditions through biomedical intervention – nutritional supplementation, dietary changes, and detoxification strategies.'
'That's because most Americans still believe we have no alternative to the food produced by agribusinesses who care as little about our health as they do about the health of the chickens, turkeys, cows and pigs, so tightly packed in pens and cages on factory farms that the floor is scarcely visible, and where visible, is covered with excrement.
Fortunately, another healthier agriculture has been emerging in the last few decades.'
