Electrolytes: What Are They & Why Are They So Good For Us?


'Electrolytes are ionic solutions (salts), existing in nature in the form of minerals. Electrolytes are responsible for keeping the body properly hydrated so the muscles and nerves can function properly.

Since the human body is composed mostly of water, it is important that we take in adequate amounts of these minerals. What is more, when we are well-hydrated, we are able to release toxic internal wastes such as harmful chemicals, urea and ammonia.'


Big Pharma’s Share in the Consumer Price Index

Rawesome Foods founder to be prosecuted under special environmental crimes unit in LA


 'Details are still sketchy on this, as we're breaking this news straight from the front lines in the aftermath of the government raid on Rawesome Foods in Venice, California, but NaturalNews is now being told that the LA County District Attorney will not be prosecuting James Stewart and the other "conspirators" who were arrested yesterday for selling raw milk. Instead, a special "environmental crimes" prosecutor will reportedly be prosecuting the case, which now consists of 13 criminal charges, some of which are felony crimes. 

NaturalNews has not yet learned the name of this special environmental prosecutor, but the explanation smacks of the new environmental police who have been promoted through various propaganda outlets as being upstanding protect-the-Earth cops who arrest people for burning too much gas or using non-recyclable cups to drink beverages.'

Update: Raw Food Raid: Armed Agents Bust Raw Milk & Cheese Sellers

'CONSOLIDATED UPDATE: Multiple sources have confirmed the fact that all three individuals arrested– James Stewart, Victoria Bloch and Sharon Palmer– are being charged with ‘conspiracy’ related to the sell of unpasteurized raw milk products.' 

'This reportedly includes sections of the California Penal Code Section 182a. Additional charges may also be pending, including a charge of ‘mislabeling cheese’ for Sharon Palmer, was arrested during a raid of Healthy Family Farms. As video of the raid on Rawesome Foods (also raided in 2010) demonstrates, Feds not only seized cash and raw milk supplies (much of which was also dumped out) but also mangos and other fresh, organic produce. Activists have planned a protest tomorrow outside the L.A. County Courthouse to demand the release of the raw food retailers, each held on bonds reportedly exceeding $120,000.'


Lentils and Kidney Beans Prevent Bowel Cancer

'Eating pulses, brown rice, green vegetables and dried fruit could cut the risk of bowel cancer. People who consume pulses such as kidney beans or lentils at least three times a week reduce their risk of developing polyps  – small growths in the lining of the bowel which can become cancerous – by a third, researchers say.'

Massive public protest announced against government-sponsored terrorism of Rawesome Foods in California

'As promised, a massive public protest is now being announced to give the members of the public an opportunity to voice their outrage against today's arrest of three raw foods advocates who are all being charged with conspiracy.

The protest will be held at the LA County Courthouse located at:
210 West Temple, Division 30
Los Angeles

Arrive there at 7:45 am to join the protest, which needs to be in full swing early, because the court hearing for James is scheduled at 8:30.'


BREAKING NEWS: Multi-agency armed raid hits Rawesome Foods, Healthy Family Farms for raw milk

 Mike Adams
Natural News

'A multi-agency SWAT-style armed raid was conducted this morning by helmet-wearing, gun-carrying enforcement agents from the LA County Sheriff's Office, the FDA, the Dept. of Agriculture and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).

Rawesome Foods, a private buying club offering wholesome, natural raw milk and raw cheese products (among other wholesome foods) is founded by James Stewart, a pioneer in bringing wholesome raw foods directly to consumers through a buying club. James was followed from his private residence by law enforcement, and when he entered his store, the raid was launched.

Law enforcement demanded that all customers (members) of the store vacate the premises, then they demanded to know how much cash James had at the store. When James explained the amount of cash he had at the store -- which is used to purchase product for selling there -- agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.'

Fukushima Radiation So High, Geiger Counter Can't Register It!

Radiation Symbol over Rays

 'Fukushima radiation is six times more than the previous high, more than Geiger counters can register. News media and governments cover it up—and radioactive waste to be used as garden soil!'

'Radiation levels at Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant suddenly rose to more than six times the highest levels they'd ever reached before now. And, of course, there isn't a hint of it in the mainstream media.

TEPCO, the company that owns the plant, reports today that radiation levels over 10,000 millisieverts per hour have been registered on the second floor of reactor one. How much more, we don't know. Geiger counters can't measure more than 10,000 millisieverts an hour! They say that they have restricted access to the room. But what is likely to happen to the workers who were there? The maximum allowed for reactor employees is now 250 millisieverts—an amount that was increased from 100 millisieverts for no medical reason.'

Potassium Lowers The Risk of Stroke


 Foods High in Potassium

'Studies are inconsistent when it comes to how potassium might affect the risk of stroke.  A meta-analysis of previous prospective studies suggests that eating high amounts of potassium may lower the risk of stroke.

Susanna C. Larsson, PhD, who many readers have already known is a veteran researcher of Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and colleagues conducted the review study and found that higher intake of potassium compared to a lower intake was associated with as much as 11 percent reduction in the stroke risk.'

Simple “Mind Trick” Could Help You Avoid a Stroke

 'There are lots of different ways to say it.  “Whistling in the dark”, “faking it until you feel it”, and “skipping past the graveyard” are just a few examples. But they all really boil down to just one thing, and that’s the power of positive thinking.

The fact is that our minds can play a significant role in our health, yet most of the time that fact is simply overlooked.' 



Tell Gov to ban Nanoparticles in food and pesticides

'Nanoparticles cross the blood-brain barrier, posing a significant threat to human DNA and that of other life forms. Currently, the US Food and Drug Administration and the US Environmental Protection Agency allow nanoparticles in pesticides and in the food supply, with no regulation whatsoever.'


Scientists Hyping 'Universal' Flu Shot to Perpetuate Vaccine Scam

'Influenza vaccination rates are on the decline as Americans increasingly learn not only that flu shots contain harmful additives like Thimerosal (mercury), but also that they do not even work as claimed (one of the "side effects" of getting a flu shot, after all, is the flu itself). So in order to convince the public into believing that flu vaccines are useful and necessary, experts from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) are now touting the advent of a "universal" flu vaccine currently in the works that will supposedly protect against all types of flu.' 


7 Whole Grains to Add to Your Diet


'While many people steer clear of whole grains, they’d do well to give them a second look. The average person eats refined grain products like white flour and white rice and avoids whole grains like the plague. Meanwhile low-carb dieters swear off whole grains in favor of high protein options like meat and poultry under the false belief that all grains are evil to the dieter (whole grains actually help stabilize blood sugar — critical to the success of any weight loss regime). 

And many other people simply avoid whole grains because they don’t know what to do with them or how to prepare them. There are many delicious and highly nutritious whole grains to choose from, so adding whole grains to your diet needn’t be daunting.'


MD Scientifically Proves Raw Milk Safer Than Most Other Foods


Those Pathogens, What You Should Know... 

By Ted Beals, MD 

Remarks delivered at the Third International Raw Milk Symposium, May 7, 2011, Bloomington, Minnesota.

'The government's battlefield is the concept of risk—raw milk is inherently risky, argue government officials, and should not be consumed by anyone, at any time, for any reason. 


But everything has risk. The decision to consume any food involves estimating the risks of eating that food, as well as the benefits. Eating is not just an interesting thing we do, like riding in airplanes; rather, it is an absolute necessity. And many of us believe that our well being is a direct consequence of the food choices we make.

Today I will present the actual scientific facts stripped of the hysteria and devoid of unsubstantiated dogma. I will do so in a way that all of you will understand; what I am presenting is not my opinion; it is the actual scientific information.' (Emphasis added)

Medical Research: Torture Data Until It Conforms to Desired Result

Salt shaker sprinkling numbers

'Torturing scientific data has exactly the same result as torturing humans. The victim or data gives up the desired answer, as demonstrated in a reanalysis of a salt study.'
'Mainstream medicine was aghast at a recent salt study showing that lower salt intake is associated with higher death rates. So, they tortured the data to claim it shows the opposite. Apparently, they couldn't find someone independent to take on the task, so a man who has made a career of advocating salt restriction acted as the inquisitor. And, of course, he claimed he had no conflict of interest.

As reported in Reducing Salt Does Not Reduce Heart Disease: Cochrane Study, a recent meta analysis demonstrated less salt is not beneficial. This follows another recent study, Heart Disease Deaths Four Times Higher With Low Salt Intake: JAMA Study, showing that deaths from heart disease are as much as four times likelier with low salt usage.'


The Case Against Drinking 6-8 Glasses of Water a Day


'Of course, water is essential for your survival. Every day, your body loses water through urine and sweat. This fluid needs to be replenished, for while you can survive for months without food, without water you wouldn't last more than a few days. If you get the fluid/water replacement issue right, then you have made one of the most important and powerful steps you can in taking control of your health.'

'But just how much water do you need to drink to replenish what you've lost? The truth is, your body is equipped with a mechanism that tells you when you need to replenish your water supply, and there's a simple way to gauge whether or not you need to drink more water even though you may not be feeling thirsty.'


Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride part 1

The Folic Acid Fallacy: How Your Multi-vitamin Might be Killing You

'Just as counterfeit Rolex watches are sold to intoxicated teenagers on the streets of Mexico, the drug industry pushes counterfeits of Mother Nature to consumers dizzy with marketing spin. This is the best analogy for the “folic acid fallacy.” Folic acid is a cheap counterfeit isolate of the naturally occurring “folate.” 

The term folate (not folic acid) encompasses a slew of naturally occurring chemical cousins – chemists call them isomers – that have a wide range of positive roles in the body. Without full-spectrum natural folate, our body becomes a breeding ground for Alzheimer’s disease, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, neural tube defects, poor cognitive performance, depression, hearing loss and many types of cancer.'




'Under the cover of the July 4th holiday, Senator Richard Durbin (D-Illinois) and the FDA launched an unprecedented and coordinated assault on the dietary supplement industry – in essence a direct attack on consumers who rely on dietary supplements to support their health.

Without a massive consumer protest of this abhorrent abuse of regulatory power consumers will be denied access to many dietary supplements they currently take. Furthermore, the cost of dietary supplements will skyrocket due to the unnecessary regulatory burden imposed upon dietary supplement companies, the legal wars that will go on for years, and the reduction in competition that currently keeps prices low. 

While there are many political forces in play, it is clear that one of the main goals of this attack is to allow the pharmaceutical companies to take over the dietary supplement industry.'

Big Pharma Spends $95 Thousand Per Doctor on Marketing Each Year

Mobile phone, doctor's hand coming out with pill bottle  
'You've likely seen your doctor using a nifty mobile phone application, called Epocrates, before writing a prescription. Such a clever device—and your doc didn't have to pay a penny for it. But you do. You pay for it in terms of adverse effects, less effective drugs, and money. Lots of money. 

Mobile devices are the big new thing in pharmaceutical marketing, and one company now dominates the industry: Epocrates. Clever name that, but it plays on the name of Hippocrates, whose oath includes a statement that a doctor should first do no harm. That oath is shredded by Epocrates' Big Pharma connections and funding by advertisements.'


Save Yourself to Save the World


Dylan Ratigan
Huffington Post

'In a country dealing with debt, unending wars, worsening inequality, instability and social injustice, is it possible to bring about any real change? What's the path to contribute to the resolution of big, global problems on an individual level? Uncertainty equals possibility. We have a lot of disruption and a lot of uncertainty right now in the world, which means I suspect we have a tremendous amount of possibility. To find some answers, we spoke to Deepak Chopra.'
