Is Your Choice Of Food A Fundamental Right?


'You grow a garden; you expect to be able to harvest the food from that garden and eat it. You raise a cow; you expect to be able to milk that cow and consume the milk. You raise chickens; you expect to gather eggs and eat them. It’s uncomplicated, simple, a fundamental right. Perhaps you wouldn’t feel this way if you lived under some other form of government, but here, now, in America and other democratized countries, this is what you expect.

No Wonder It's Criminalized: Marijuana Makes Tumors Shrink and Halts Their Growth



http://cdn.theweedblog.com/wp-content/uploads//Medical-Marijuana2.jpg
'Ever wonder why a plant made from nature for all of us to enjoy is criminalized? Look no further than the wheels that turn government -- namely greed and corporate profits on behalf of big pharma. After all, why else would something natural be banned? In this case, because it helps prevent cancer. Researchers in Spain have discovered that a marijuana makes brain tumors shrink by halting the growth of blood vessels that supply the tumors with life.

Since when are herbs classified as drugs? We really should pose this question to
wikipedia who classifies the herb a drug under its lisiting.'

Our Ancestors Didn't Die of Cancer ...

'If you're interested in living a longer, healthier life, nothing beats proper diet and exercise—even low amounts of exercise. A recent study published in the journal Lancet, which included several hundred thousand people between 1996 and 2008 found that a mere 15 minutes of exercise a day can increase your lifespan by three years!

Those who got themselves moving for at least 15 minutes a day, or 90 minutes a week, also had a 14 percent reduced risk of all-cause mortality.'

Engineered Epidemic


'Positive forensic evidence has surfaced indicating that the e. coli superstrain that recently ravaged Europe, was created by humans. Science has proved that the bacteria is resistant to 8 different types of antibiotics and possesses DNA sequences from plague bacteria, a combination utterly unprecedented in nature, which has many authorities theorizing it was created in a lab and either released purposefully (with, perhaps, the intent to control global food and health), or accidentally into the food supply.'

The Six Most Horrifying Lies The Food Industry is Feeding You


'If there's one thing in the world the food industry is dead set against, it's allowing you to actually maintain some level of control over what you eat. See, they have this whole warehouse full of whatever they bought last week when they were drunk that they need to get rid of -- and they will do so by feeding it all to you. And it doesn't matter how many pesky "lists of ingredients" and consumer protections stand between you and them.'

Leukemia, nausea, diarrhea and death: Small price to pay for “fresh” fruits and veggies




'Chemical agriculture's defense of pesticides conjures up the image of the chain-smoking industry attorney Nathan Thurm slithering through a minefield of facts and figures about the causes of global warming in this classic skit from Saturday Night Live

Stacks of scientific studies have documented serious health risks to humans from pesticide exposure, but pesticide makers and sprayers, like the fictional Mr. Thurm, ignore the research and stick with talking points or their own questionable "science" in their efforts to muddy the waters, create confusion and delay government action to protect the public. Meanwhile, we eaters are left to consume pesticides along with conventionally grown produce.'

Brain Stents Double Risk of Stroke: Proof Evidence-Based Medicine Is a Fraud

 http://i.usatoday.net/yourlife/_photos/2011/09/08/Drugs-safer-for-stroke-patients-CHC6VK9-x-large.jpg

'When there's no excuse for not knowing and when patients do worse—including death and permanent disability—what should we call it? How can it be considered anything but negligent homicide?'

'Brain stents have been hyped as a miracle in treating stroke patients. The FDA has been approving—even fast-track approving—them since 2005. There's just one problem: They were never seriously tested. So now, six years since their use became common in stroke treatment, a study has finally been done to actually see if they're effective and safe. The results are dramatic. Not only are they useless, stents double the number of strokes patients subsequently suffer.



Brain stents were hailed as a near-perfect treatment in stroke cases. In January, MedicineNet reported that stenting "appears nearly full-proof in unblocking brain arteries".(1) Not only were they being promoted for use in severe strokes, but as this article demonstrates, they were pushed for mild ones, too. In fact, Dr. Italo Linfante, lead author of the study cited, was even promoting use for people at risk for stroke, not only those who had already suffered strokes.'

12 Things Happy People Do Differently


12 Things Happy People Do Differently

“I’d always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed.  I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live - that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life.”
-Dan Millman


'Studies conducted by positivity psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky point to 12 things happy people do differently to increase their levels of happiness.  These are things that we can start doing today to feel the effects of more happiness in our lives.  (Check out her book The How of Happiness.)

I want to honor and discuss each of these 12 points, because no matter what part of life’s path we’re currently traveling on, these ‘happiness habits’ will always be applicable.'

The Dark Side of Smart Meters




The dark horse of the New World Order is not Communism, Socialism or Fascism. It is Technocracy. -- Patrick Wood 


'Smart Meters are showing up across the U.S. despite pockets of fierce resistance.  These meters are part of the SmartGrid system which relays real-time, wireless data in order to monitor and distribute energy use down to the tiniest detail.  The professed purpose of this grid system -- to reduce carbon emissions -- is ringing more hollow than ever, as both health and privacy concerns are taking center stage for an increasing number of people who are aware of the dangers on both levels.'

Not your grandma’s milk


milk jugs

'Milk is truly one of the oldest, simplest whole foods - and we certainly drink a lot of it. According to the USDA, Americans consumed an average of 1.8 cups of dairy per person, per day in 2005. But is the milk Americans are drinking today the same milk our ancestors drank thousands of years ago? Is it even the same milk our great-grandparents were drinking a hundred years ago? By and large, the answer is no.'

Why Our Family Won’t Be Getting A Flu Shot This Year (Or Any Year)

'It’s that time of year again. I’ve been seeing the signs all over proclaiming: “flu shots here” from Walgreens to doctor’s clinics all over the city where I live. And I hear conversations from people everywhere saying that they need to get into their doctor and get their flu shot before it’s too late. So why is there so much hype about the flu vaccine?

Drug deaths now outnumber traffic fatalities in U.S., data show

 http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_DnmjuQRMFfc/S6UPDzK48AI/AAAAAAAABtM/Zt--3cSjd78/s400/militaryand+big+pharma.jpg

'Fueling the surge in deaths are prescription pain and anxiety drugs that are potent, highly addictive and especially dangerous when combined with one another or with other drugs or alcohol. Among the most commonly abused are OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Soma. One relative newcomer to the scene is Fentanyl, a painkiller that comes in the form of patches and lollipops and is 100 times more powerful than morphine.

Such drugs now cause more deaths than
heroin and cocaine combined.'

What’s behind those breakfast cereals?

 
Editor's note: This video is an industry PR attempt to convince you how healthy sugar coated corn flakes are. You may see through some of the nonsense, but there is another factor - GMO corn! The full article has a commentary on this video.

'While sleepily shaking your cereal flakes into a bowl, and absently pouring the milk over them, have you ever stopped to think, just before taking a big, slurpy bite, “How is this stuff made?” If you went ahead and took the time to find out, you’d be surprised to learn that no matter how healthy and natural the advertising on the packages makes those crunchy bits of wheat, oats, and corn seem, they are actually a highly processed food whose nutrient value is questionable. But that wasn’t how it was supposed to be at all.'

Avoiding Artificial Sweeteners? They Are In The Drinking Water



'In recent tests, water samples from US water treatment plants discovered that the artificial sweetener sucralose (Splenda) is a widespread contaminant in both source water and treated water. Sucralose is a persistent contaminant as it is not broken down by the chemical water treatment process.


Previous research has shown that sucralose can destroy up to 50 percent of beneficial intestinal bacteria (probiotics), which are essential for general health and a strong immune system. Sucralose is chemically closer to DDT and Agent Orange than it is to sugar.'

Docs Use Natural Remedies (But Don't Prescribe Them)

http://www.mnn.com/sites/default/files/main_meds_3.jpg

'Doctors don't regularly prescribe natural remedies to patients, but a new study finds physicians and nurses are more likely than the general public to use alternative and complimentary medicine for their own health ailments. The new study looking at alternative and complimentary medicine use in Americans appears in the journal Health Services Research. "Nurses and doctors are reflecting current societal trends being swept up in a grassroots movement that they have resisted for the last three decades," says alternative and complimentary medicine expert Guy Riekeman, DC, president of Life University, a chiropractic school in Atlanta. (He was not involved in this study.)'

50 Reasons To Protect Infants From Vaccines

'I have also written to the WHO, GAVI, UNICEF & PATH, premier institutions that promote this highly controversial medical intervention. Doctors sympathetic to the cause opine that unless the public realise the dangers from vaccines it will be very difficult to stop this industry sponsored menace. You will agree that there should be a public debate on vaccines, otherwise the unfortunate children do not stand a chance.
 
1. There is no scientific study to determine whether vaccines have really prevented diseases. Rather disease graphs show vaccines have been introduced at the fag end of epidemics when the disease was already in its last stages. In case of Small Pox the vaccine actually caused a great spurt in the incidence of disease before public outcry led to its withdrawal.'

California Bans Unvaccinated Children from Class



'If your child hasn’t received the whooping cough vaccine, he or she is now banned from attending class at many California schools. Despite legitimate religious or personal health reasons for rejecting the whooping cough vaccine, your child simply cannot attend class. Due to a law that requires all students entering grades seven through 12 be vaccinated, the San Francisco school district has begun sending home children who do not have proof of receiving the whooping cough vaccination.

Proof of vaccine ineffectiveness


Why are schools afraid of
unvaccinated children spreading the disease to vaccinated children if the whooping cough vaccine is truly effective? How could an unvaccinated child spread the disease to someone who has already received the whooping cough vaccine?'

Staying Young Forever

Description: life extension and time


'Our culture places great value on staying and looking young and a huge industry is in place to give people the opportunity to live longer. Anti-aging enthusiasts contend that life spans can be prolonged. Advice from the National Institute on Aging is to be a skeptical consumer on guard for possible scams involving purported anti-aging products. 

“Our culture places great value on staying young, but aging is normal,” the Institute says. “Despite claims about pills or treatments that lead to endless youth, no treatments have been proven to slow or reverse the aging process.”'

Exposed: California Officials Manipulated Safety Data on Methyl Iodide, Ignored Scientist Warnings Against Approving Deadly Strawberry Chemical



'Many of those plump, juicy strawberries found on produce section shelves are hiding a deadly little secret. In 2010, regulators in California, where over 90 percent of conventional strawberries are grown, quietly approved the use of toxic methyl iodide as a fruit pesticide after the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved it nationally. But new evidence has now surfaced that government officials twisted study data to make the chemical falsely appear safe in order to get it approved -- and individuals everywhere are now increasingly demanding that methyl iodide be banned.'

The Vaccine Experiment

'In the 1980s, teenagers in Norway were asked to take part in a large meningococcal B vaccine trial. They were not told the truth about potential risks—and many paid a heavy price for it. Only 57% were protected from meningococcal disease, so it was not implemented. Many children suffered permanent severe neurological disease—a lifetime of disability.

Ultimately, the disease, meningococcal B, faded away, as is typical of so many. The same experiment was repeated using a different, rapidly developed vaccine. They claimed that the Norway vaccine was safely tested, so that the New Zealand one was also safe for use in small children, even though it was not the same, was not effective, and was not safe. The result was exactly what you'd expect. The vaccine's effectiveness was very limited. They increased the dose. Children are still getting the meningococcal disease and dying from it.

Other children's lives have been devasted by adverse effects. The typical obtuse response of denial was the standard response. Doctors who have seen children with severe neurological disorders that developed immediately after the vaccine literally say that the vaccine has no adverse effects. In one case, a girl whose life has been devasted is told that the injection caused the problem, not the vaccine!'

Beautiful Medicine

'One day in a doctor’s life, or in many days of a doctor’s life, one has to help someone with few medical tools at hand. In emergencies medical supplies run out fast and even now in the United States there are severe shortages of certain medicines and there is no emergency. The entire medical and alternative healthcare community is faced with a radical downsizing of not only the economy but of civilization itself. 

What are we healers going to do and how can we best help others when the going gets really rough and there is little-to-no technology, tests or pharmaceuticals at hand. Barefoot doctors in China had some idea of these conditions for they were trained for them. Conditions around the world are not like they are in advanced first-world countries. For example, until a few years ago Ethiopia had one cancer specialist, Dr. Bogale Solomon, for more than 80 million people. Now three more oncologists have joined, but Dr. Solomon says, “Practically all cancer-related medicines are either nonexistent or beyond the reach of ordinary Ethiopians.” It is the same around the world.'
