'I didn’t want to be right on this. I was hoping that I was wrong, but it looks like it is playing out just as I thought it would. Here come genetically modified (GM) sugar beets right on the heels of GM alfalfa.' 

USDA partially deregulating biotech sugar beets KANSAS CITY/WASHINGTON, Feb 4 (Reuters) – 

'U.S. agricultural regulators on Friday said despite a court ban, they would allow commercial planting of genetically modified sugar beets under closely controlled conditions while they complete a full environmental impact statement. The move marks the second-such boost by the United States for contested biotech crops in a week, and underscores U.S. determination to expand the use of GMO crops amid rising global fears over food security and surging prices. After approving genetically altered alfalfa last week in the face of bitter protest and after court rulings against an earlier sugar beet approval, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said it would allow Monsanto Co’s (MON.N) “Roundup Ready” sugar beets back in the fields this spring.'

21st Century Inquisition

'The umbrella of CODEX, a new inquisition has been initiated, an all-out witch-hunt against natural medicine and its practitioners. I know of personal stories on different continents where noble people are deliberately attacked. My dear friend and medical associate Dr. George Georgiou from Cyprus actually had a spy come into his office posing as a patient secretly taking films of the diagnostic intake so it could later be edited and presented on local television.

The Cyprus Medical Association is picking up the pace in overtly attacking all natural medicine practitioners on the island of Cyprus, which is now part of the European Union. The tactics they are using are highly unethical and unprofessional. According to Georgiou they are “basing their attack on the myth that all natural medicine practitioners are unqualified charlatans and people should not trust them with their health.”'


Interview with Dr Andrew Wakefield about the British Medical Journal, science and vaccines

Video Information

Interview with Dr Andrew Wakefield about the British Medical Journal, science and vaccines. In this video interview, Dr Wakefield says that BMJ is factually incorrect in accusing Wakefield of falsifying the study data in his 1998 paper published in The Lancet.

"[The data] were faithfully reproduced in the Lancet paper, and they were made in the most scrupulous, meticulous way. Those are the facts. Brian Deer knew those facts. When he made his allegations to the BMJ, he knew those facts. Did he disclose them to the BMJ? More importantly, did the BMJ, as a peer reviewed scientific journal, did they check the facts? Because the facts were fully available to them in the book Callous Disregard."

Dr Wakefield also explains how this desperate move by the BMJ to attack Dr Wakefield has eroded the credibility of the publication:

"They have been hijacked by a freelance journalist who is not expert in any of these fields. They have handed over their journal to this man and allowed him to publish knowingly false allegations, and they have gone along with it. In my opinion, they [the BMJ] have blown their scientific credibility. In their desperation... their fundamental belief that vaccines must be safe, [they say] please don't tell me this terrible disease has been caused by the physician, don't tell me that. Tell me anything but that, and we will take any information, even information from Brian Deer, that will convince us it's safe, and we will publish that, because that conforms with our belief system. That makes us feel more comfortable. That makes us feel that we, as a profession, are not culpable in this extraordinary disorder."

In this interview, Dr Wakefield also discusses the motivation for the BMJ to grasp at any effort to discredit those who question the safety of vaccines:

"They are so keen to prove me wrong, to prove the parents wrong, and to exonerate the medical profession, their political friends, their pharmaceutical friends, whoever it is, that they have gone ahead in this reckless way and done this. And now, based upon the clear, unambiguous, historical factual records, then I can come out and talk to you like this and say this without any fear of retribution from the BMJ because they've got themselves into this mess. The facts are the facts."

He goes on to say about the BMJ, "An investigation will be forced upon them."

11 Surprising Health Benefits Of Sleep

'Sleep makes you feel better, but its importance goes way beyond just boosting your mood or banishing under-eye circles. Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more. 

"Sleep used to be kind of ignored, like parking our car in a garage and picking it up in the morning," says David Rapoport, M.D., director of the NYU Sleep Disorders Program.

Not anymore. Here are some health benefits researchers have discovered about a good night's sleep.'


Interview with Sherri Tenpenny about dangers of vaccines

An eye-opening interview with Dr Sherri Tenpenny about the dangers of vaccines. Here are some of the quotes from Dr Tenpanny in this interview:

"The money isn't really to be made in the vaccine industry. The money is made by Big Pharma with all of the drugs that are given to treat and address all the illnesses that are subsequent to the side effects of the vaccines"

"True health cannot come from a needle. Injecting people with something to try to keep them well is a 200 year mistake."

"If we could cut vaccination by 90 percent and get everybody's vitamin D levels up between 60 and 80 [ng / dl], we wouldn't have this health care problem that we have to tax everybody to death to try to take care of people. People would be healthy."

"It seems as though the pharmaceutical industry looks at children as nothing more than a repository of their products, whatever those products are... whether they are a vaccine, an artificial coloring from the food industry, something in a pill such as a medication, and we see these kids, they're not healthy, they're pale, they just don't look healthy. And then the pharmaceutical industry paints these happy pictures that we have to keep vaccinating these kids to keep them healthy. And the pediatricians say because these kids are sick, we need to vaccinate them more!"

About the executives of these vaccine companies, Dr Tenpenny says, "Some of them will go to jail. Because I'm sure that some of them know absolutely what's going on."

Here's what else you'll hear about in this interview:

* Why parents are waking up to the truth about vaccine dangers.

* Why vaccines are related to our epidemic of asthma and allergies.

* Why "vaccines are the backbone of the entire pharmaceutical industry" because they create lifelong disease requiring expensive medical treatments.

* How vaccines are made with 63 different chemicals that may pose a grave risk of harm to human health.

* Why there's no profit to be made in keeping people healthy.

The Gulf Tragedy and Biological Contamination

'While natural viruses and bacteria respect species barriers, the storm of artificial genetics created by synthetic biology engineers – in order to eliminate the flow of crude oil and gasses in the Gulf of Mexico – are actually designed to cross species barriers. This has created new viral and bacterial pathogens never seen before. It is directly responsible for the spreading of drug and antibiotic resistant viral and bacterial outbreaks along the Gulf Coast, a pestilence that I have named The Gulf Blue Plague.' 


Studies Demonstrate The More Educated You Are, The Less Chance You Will Vaccinate

'More educated parents are less likely to vaccinate, which contradicts the misconceptions of many health professionals who profess that parents don't vaccinate because they are under-educated, poor or misinformed. One publication of medical research linking the MMR vaccine to autism in The Lancet in February 1998 sparked a decade-long controversy about the triple jab. Following the initial publication, the uptake rate of the MMR vaccine dropped from 92% in 1997/98 to 80% in 2003/04.'


Make a Date with Chili Pepper

'In a recent study headed by Dr. Phillip Koeffler at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, it was discovered that capsaicin seduces prostate cancer cells into committing suicide—figuratively speaking, makes them blow their DNA brains out. More specifically, the research team found that in mice, prostate tumors treated with capsaicin wound up one-fifth the size of similar untreated tumors.' 


Remember the Children the Vaccine Industry Has Left Behind

'The vaccine industry has damaged countless children, leaving them suffering from extreme bowel disorders, neurological problems and lifelong pain. This public service announcement from and shows you the human cost of vaccines that the pharmaceutical industry simply ignores.'

Earthing: The Overlooked "Electroceutical" & Effects on my Lyme Symptoms - Pt 1 and 2

'Earthing might be a better antioxidant than foods and supplements combined. We've insulated ourselves from the earth's unlimited supply of electrons since we began wearing rubber soled shoes in the 1960s. Earthing (or grounding) rejoins us with earth's natural healing energy. A plethora of studies document the amazing effects of earthing as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, pain-reliever, wound-healer, nervous system balancer, blood sugar regulator, thyroid regulator, cortisol regulator, and blood thinner. The second benefit of earthing is that it protects you from EMFs*. Alix demonstrates this effect using a voltmeter. (*I say in the video that earthing "discharges" EMFs, but "protects" or "shields" is probably more accurate.) Sounds too good to be true? Early studies do support these findings. In Part 1, Alix gets a bit personal & shares some of her story of a missed Lyme diagnosis and how earthing has helped her 14 year-long headache and 8 year-long battle with Lyme-inducted insomnia. Ashley Van Tol - of SpiroChicks Blog and Lymenaide - was my graveyard videographer. More info on earthing: NOTE: Upon my request, Clint Ober sent me some earthing kits. As is the case with my other video stories, I received no compensation for doing this story on earthing. Do watch for earthing kit give-aways on and on Lyme lifestyle blog,! Please see Part 1 if you missed it!'

Interview with Dr Suzanne Humphries

Video Information

In this interview, you'll hear Dr Humphries talk about vaccines, including:

* Why she became concerned about vaccines after noticing kidney failure in patients who recently received vaccines.

* Why vaccines are often contaminated with unknown viral strains, and why the vaccine industry has covered up known vaccine contamination (and knowingly sold contaminated vaccines to be used on the public).

* Why the entire vaccine industry needs to be questioned, and why a new effort is needed to scientifically assess whether vaccines are really safe or effective.

* Why the fairy tale that "vaccines eradicated polio" is a false mythology -- here's what really happened.

* Why the "smallpox" vaccine has never been proven to be effective against smallpox at all.

* Why vaccine industry research is extremely flimsy and ignores rigorous standards of scientific evidence. (Using improper placebos designed to minimize the appearance of side effects, for example.)

* Why the vaccine industry won't test vaccines versus unvaccinated children (they're terrified of the results).

* Why children caught up in outbreaks of measles are often the very same children who were vaccinated against measles!

* Why vaccines may actually suppress the immune system and cause increased vulnerability to future infections.

* Why many childhood infections such as chicken pox are perfectly natural, normal and even HEALTHY.

* Why the outlandish and unscientific behavior of the vaccine industry is causing an erosion of credibility across all "science."

* Why many of the people engaged in pushing vaccines have financial ties to vaccine companies.

* Why the vaccine industry is utterly unwilling to tolerate anyone asking intelligent questions about the safety of vaccines.

Putting Out the Fire


by Dr. Mark Sircus

' “I can now very comfortably and definitively state to you,” says Dr. Rashid Buttar, “that, in my opinion, based on the evidence, every single chronic insidious disease process is related to one word: toxicity. You cannot address the issues of aging unless you address detoxification.” '

"Dr. Buttar, board certified and a diplomate in preventive medicine and clinical metal toxicology, and vice-chairman of the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology, contends that he only recently (around 2004) arrived at this conclusion.' “Five years ago I wouldn’t have said this, even a year ago I wouldn’t have said it. But the more success we’ve had, the clearer it has become: All chronic disease is toxicity."'


18 Ridiculous Statistics About Medical Bills, Medical Debt And The Health Care Industry That Will Make You So Mad You Will Want To Tear Your Hair Out

'Do not read this article if you do not want to get angry. The health care industry in the United States has become one gigantic money making scam, and tens of millions of American families now live in great fear of illness and disease. Why are they so afraid? It is not because they fear the illnesses and diseases. 

Rather, the prospect of racking up tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars in medical debt is enough to deeply frighten just about anyone. , virtually every single American is one really bad day from financial ruin. Did you know that medical bills are the number one reason for bankruptcy in the United States? Did you know that the vast majority of people that go bankrupt due to medical bills actually have health insurance? Meanwhile, there are a significant number of people that are becoming fabulously wealthy off of this system. 

Our "health care industry" has turned large numbers of doctors, lawyers, health insurance company executives and pharmaceutical company executives into multi-millionaires. The health care industry in the United States has been so corrupt and so greedy for so long that we don't even remember what a legitimate medical system even looks like anymore.'


Monsanto back in court: Center for Food Safety challenges GMO alfalfa ruling

'The Center for Food Safety has announced an immediate challenge to the USDA’s unregulated approval of Monsanto’s genetically-modified (GMO) alfalfa.
“All farmers should be on notice that we will be suing again, so before they make their seed buying decisions, I would certainly caution them that we will be in court,” CFS’s Andrew Kimbrell told “And I think that anybody who looks at our past record over the last five years will realize that we haven’t lost yet.” '


NaturalNews exclusive: International Medical Council on Vaccination refutes vaccine propaganda with myth-busting report

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

'To hear it from proponents of the vaccine industry, vaccines are based on rock-solid science that proves them to be completely safe and widely effective. These beliefs, however, are not factually based on real science but rather a persistent vaccine mythology that has been propagandized by the vaccine industry, medical practitioners and even governments which underwrite vaccine risks.' 


Stonyfield Farm Takes a Swing at Monsanto (and the OCA)

'Yesterday, we reported how the Organic Consumers Association was accusing what they called “the organic elite” of caving to Monsanto and facilitating the USDA’s unrestricted approval of GMO alfalfa – a move that could seriously undermine the integrity of organic foods. Today, Stonybrood Farm responds – and they say that on the contrary, they want everyone to stand firm – together – against Monsanto. Let me first state the obvious – leaving aside the fact that USDA’s own organic standards do not allow the use of genetically engineered crops, Stonyfield is absolutely and utterly opposed to the deregulation of GE crops.'


Vitamin D Deficiency Alters Lung Growth and Decreases Lung Function

'Previously linked to the severity of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in humans, vitamin D deficiency has now been shown to alter lung structure and function in young mice. The new study, conducted by researchers in Australia, offers the first concrete evidence linking vitamin D deficiency with deficits in lung function and altered lung structure.

The findings were published online ahead of the print edition of the American Thoracic Society's American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.'


It IS unconstitutional: District Judge rules Obamacare 'violates people's rights' as half of states win landmark challenge

  • Judge backs legal challenge brought by 26 states
  • He says healthcare reforms are 'violation of people's rights'
  • Ruling will galvanise Republicans trying to sink healthcare reforms
'President Obama's controversial healthcare reforms were dealt a devastating blow today after a second federal judge declared the proposed law unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson in Pensacola, Florida ruled on the legal challenge brought by mostly Republican governors and attorneys general from 26 states.

He accepted the states' argument that forcing people to buy health insurance by 2014, or face penalties, is a violation of their rights.'


Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize Winner, Takes Homeopathy Seriously

'Dr. Luc Montagnier, the French virologist who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering the AIDS virus, has surprised the scientific community with his strong support for homeopathic medicine.

In a remarkable interview published in Science magazine of December 24, 2010, (1) Professor Luc Montagnier, has expressed support for the often maligned and misunderstood medical specialty of homeopathic medicine. Although homeopathy has persisted for 200+ years throughout the world and has been the leading alternative treatment method used by physicians in Europe, (2) most conventional physicians and scientists have expressed skepticism about its efficacy due to the extremely small doses of medicines used.'


Wakefield Gives Proof: No Fraud. Brian Deer Lied.

Back view of man with finger crossed behind his back

by Heidi Stevenson

'The flummery of Brian Deer and the British Medical Journal in their smear of Dr. Andrew Wakefield's research and character has been demonstrated today to have been without basis—in fact, to be genuine fraud. Dr. Wakefield has released a document(1) with the following statements:'
I have documents that confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that I did not falsify the data, that the findings are real, and that these findings were accurately reported in the Lancet.


I present evidence that completely negates the allegations that I committed scientific fraud. Brian Deer and Dr. Godlee of the British Medical Journal (BMJ) knew or should have known about the facts set out below before publishing their false allegations.


Danger of Bone Cancer From Fluoride in Toothpaste, Drinking Water

 'In 1977, the National Academy of Sciences expressed concerns on the strong relation between the fluoridation of drinking water and risks of bone cancer to young boys, Dr. Epstein points out.

A decade later, the International Agency for Research on Cancer reported that fluorides in drinking water induced bone cancer in rats. This finding was confirmed by the National Toxicology Program in its 1989, 1990, and 1991 reports.

"Not surprisingly, Procter & Gamble, the leading manufacturer of fluoridated toothpastes, denied that these results were statistically significant," Dr. Epstein said today. "Surprisingly, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supported this claim."

Well-documented evidence links bone cancer to fluoride exposure, Dr. Epstein advises.' 



'EATING broccoli with mustard can boost the vegetable’s cancer-fighting ability, scientists have found.
Adding radishes, rocket or wasabi, a form of Japanese horseradish, can have the same effect.

But overcooking the broccoli can kill the vital enzyme it contains. Steaming it quickly for just two to four minutes is the best way to preserve its well-known health benefits, say US scientists.'

Bayer Settles Multi-Million With Hemophiliacs Over HIV Tainted Blood

'The Coalition Against Bayer pharmaceuticals (CBG) announces that Bayer and Baxter settled a mulit-million dollar compensation suit with hemophiliacs in 22 countries who were victims, infected with HIV or hepatitis C having been infused with tainted blood plasma products in the 1980s. 

In 2003, The New York Times reported that a division of Bayer pharmaceutical knowingly continued to sell its AIDS infected blood product to countries in Asia and Latin America to get rid of inventory: "the company hoped to preserve the profit margin from 'several large fixed-price contracts." '  


Bee pollen benefits anyone who consumes it

'That small teaspoon of bee pollen granules contains a whopping 2.5 billions grains of flower pollen! Bee pollen benefits are more apparent when you consider the magnitude of the nutrient density in each little granule. While bee pollen benefits anyone who chooses to consume it in a number of different ways, many world class athletes have been adding this as a staple food in their daily nutritional regimen for many years.Antti Lananaki who was the coach of the Finish track team that swept the Olympics in 1972, revealed, "most of our athletes take pollen food supplements. Our studies show it significantly improves their performance.'


A Simple, Inexpensive Trick to Cure a Cold

  by Dr. Mercola

'Hydrogen Peroxide: A Simple Trick to Beat a Cold 'I don't advise over-the-counter medications, but one simple treatment you can try that is surprisingly effective against upper respiratory infections is hydrogen peroxide. 

Many patients at my Natural Health Center have had remarkable results in curing colds and flu within 12 to 14 hours when administering a few drops of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into each ear. You will hear some bubbling, which is completely normal, and possibly feel a slight stinging sensation. 

Wait until the bubbling and stinging subside (usually 5 to 10 minutes), then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear. A bottle of hydrogen peroxide in 3 percent solution is available at any drug store for a couple of dollars or less. It is simply amazing how many people respond to this simple, inexpensive treatment.'
