New Study: Vitamin D Cuts Flu By Half: Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Randomized Trial

'Vitamin D is a highly effective way to avoid influenza. A study documents that children taking low doses of Vitamin D3 are 42% less likely to contract influenza.
Nicknamed the sunshine supplement because we can synthesize it from sun exposure on our skin, Vitamin D3 has been anecdotally linked to flu prevention on many occasions. This study provides strong evidence of the validity of the observations.'


Urgent: Throw These Cooking Oils in the Trash

'In the words of Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser:

"If they have to put the word 'natural' on a box to convince you, it probably isn't."'
'But this doesn't stop countless processed food manufacturers from boldly labeling their products as 100% natural in the hopes of appealing to health-minded shoppers like you. 

After all, products labeled as "natural" or "sustainable" account for $50 billion in sales annually, or 8 percent of total retail grocery sales, and the numbers are likely growing
When you see a supposedly "natural" product, like ConAgra's Wesson brand vegetable oils claim to be, you would probably assume they contain no genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which by definition are not found in nature. But Wesson oils, specifically the Canola Oil, Vegetable Oil, Corn Oil, and Best Blend, do in fact contain GMOs, prompting a class-action lawsuit over their misleading "100% natural" label claim.'


BPA spikes 1,200 percent after eating canned soup
'People who ate canned soup for five days straight saw their urinary levels of the chemical bisphenol A spike 1,200 percent compared to those who ate fresh soup, US researchers said on Tuesday.

The randomized study, described as "one of the first to quantify BPA levels in humans after ingestion of canned foods," was done by Harvard University researchers and appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association's November 23 issue.' 


Australians Told to Inject Your Children or Lose Money

 'They are trying to kill your kids, Australia, by destroying their immune systems. How much are you going to take??'

'The Federal Government will withhold more than $2100 in tax benefits for families who refuse to vaccinate their children. The move is a drive by the Gillard Government to boost vaccination rates, with one in 10 Australian children not immunised. It comes as part of a major shake-up of the national immunisation program which includes the introduction of more vaccines.' 


Two Vitamin C Tablets Every Day Could Save 200,000 Lives Every Year   

'Ascorbate Supplementation Reduces Heart Failure'

'New research has reported that risk of heart failure decreases with increasing blood levels of vitamin C [1]. Persons with the lowest plasma levels of ascorbate had the highest risk of heart failure, and persons with the highest levels of vitamin C had the lowest risk of heart failure.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) there are about 600,000 deaths from heart disease each year. [2] This is an enormous number. The definition of heart failure used by the study authors was on the basis of drugs prescribed, which would include all forms of heart disease that cause death. This agrees well with the CDC definition.' 


Male circumcision leads to a bad sex life
 'Circumcised men have more difficulties reaching orgasm, and their female partners experience more vaginal pains and an inferior sex life, a new study shows.'

'If a man is circumcised, he faces an increased risk of experiencing delayed orgasm, and his female partner has an increased risk of not feeling sexually fulfilled.

This is the clear-cut conclusion of a new Danish research article, which has received international attention.' 


Pay Attention: How Big Pharma Contrived the Great American Adderall Drought


'When Jay V.'s pharmacist told him about the nationwide Adderall shortages last weekend, he reacted as any economically rational finance professional would, and attempted to bribe her. Whatever the cost, "it's cheaper than cocaine," his reasoning went. And even if it isn't, you can’t put a price on never having to go back to doing bumps in the work bathroom to get through late night deal committee meetings, can you?

Jay's pharmacist said she was reserving her supply for regular customers, but that the price had doubled and the clock was ticking. "They're down to one bottle,” Jay said, “and if I don't get them a prescription by the end of next week I forfeit my right to it." So long as he can tear himself away from one of the 16-hour days he cites as the reason he needs Adderall to begin with, he'll be fine. At least, for the next month or so…'

Need More Magnesium? 10 Signs to Watch For

'Symptoms of poor magnesium intake can include muscle cramps, facial ticks, poor sleep, and chronic pain. It pays to ensure that you get adequate magnesium before signs of deficiency occur.
But how can you know whether you’re getting enough?

According to population studies of average magnesium intake, there’s a good chance that you’re not.

Less than 30% of U.S. adults consume the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of magnesium. And nearly 20% get only half of the magnesium they need daily to remain healthy.'


What Drugs Was Your Thanksgiving Turkey On?

'Antibiotics and other drugs are common in the turkey that thousands of Americans eat every day.'

'So far, 2011 has not been a great year for turkey producers. In May, an article in Clinical Infectious Diseases reported that half of U.S. meat from major grocery chains--turkey, beef, chicken and pork--harbors antibiotic resistant staph germs commonly called MRSA. Turkey had twice and even three times the MRSA of all other meats, in another study.

In June, Pfizer announced it was ending arsenic-containing chicken feed which no one realized they were eating anyway, but its arsenic-containing Histostat, fed to turkeys, continues. Poultry growers use inorganic arsenic, a recognized carcinogen, for "growth promotion, feed efficiency and improved pigmentation," says the FDA. Yum.' 


Magnificent Magnesium: The Neglected Mineral We Cannot Live Without

'Magnesium is an alkaline earth metal, the eighth most abundant mineral found in the earth’s crust. Because of its ready solubility in water, magnesium is the third most abundant mineral in sea water, after sodium and chloride. In the human body, magnesium is the eleventh most plentiful element by mass—measuring about two ounces. Most magnesium contained in the body is found in the skeleton and teeth—at least 60 to 65 percent of the total. Nearly the entire remaining amount resides in muscle tissues and cells, while only one percent is contained in our blood.

The importance of magnesium ions for all life itself, as well as for overall vibrant health, is hard to overstate. Magnesium is required to give the “spark of life” to metabolic functions involving the creation of energy and its transport (ATP, the body’s fundamental energy currency), and the creation of proteins—the nucleic acid chemistry of life—RNA and DNA, in all known living organisms.

In plants, a magnesium ion is found at the center of every chlorophyll molecule, vital for the creation of energy from sunlight. Magnesium is an essential element for both animals and plants, involved in literally hundreds of enzymatic reactions affecting virtually all aspects of life.'

Do You See It Coming? The Next Largest World View Movement Will Not Have a Name

'We are all currently part of a movement that is greater and more profound than we can comprehend at this time. It does not have a name and nobody started it, or is in charge. It is non-violent and grassroots. It is global, classless, unquenchable and tireless. It has no central ideology and it is the most diverse movement the world has ever seen. You are a part of it and if you're reading this, you KNOW it is happening right before your very eyes.'


How the Plutocracy Quells a Peasant Revolt....

'How in the world can the United States condemn other nations for how they are handling their protest movements when we treat our own protesters so brutally? 

No matter what you may think of Occupy Wall Street and the other protest movements that have sprung up across the United States, the truth is that you should be incredibly alarmed about the tactics that law enforcement authorities are choosing to use against them. 

If we decide to accept these tactics now, then the exact same "police state" tactics will be used against you when the time comes that you want to protest against the government. In recent weeks, we have seen law enforcement authorities brutally dragging female protesters to the ground by their hair. 

We have also seen them use pepper spray, tear gas, rubber bullets and flash-bang stun grenades against protesters. If this is how protesters are going to be dealt with from now in America, then we have completely lost the moral high ground. 

How will we ever get other nations to take us seriously when we criticize their brutality against protesters when we are so brutal ourselves?'

Saving Nutritional Supplements: A Battle For Nature, Truth, and Life Itself

'We know how hard people are fighting now to save the economy, to stop the wars, to prevent more nuclear power plants, mountain top mining, fracking, and more drilling, to stop genetic engineering, and incredibly importantly – save our farmers and ranchers. 

But what is happening to supplements is little noticed but is of ultimate importance. The battle to save supplements is a battle to save nature and the accumulated wisdom of thousands of years of using it to heal.' 


'Occupy Student Debt' emerges in US

'A number of student organizers in the US have unveiled what they call an 'Occupy Student Debt' campaign, urging borrowers across the country to default on their college loans.'

' The campaign was made public Monday afternoon in New York's Zuccotti Park, where the national Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement emerged, the Huffington Post reported.

“Since the first days of the Occupy movement, the agony of student debt has been a constant refrain,” said Andrew Ross, a professor at New York University and an active OWS member, while addressing a crowd in the park

“We've heard the harrowing personal testimony about the suffering and humiliation of people who believe their debts will be unplayable in their lifetime,” Ross said


If Chemtrails And HAARP Didn’t Disturb You Enough, Wait Until You Hear About Morgellons

'For those unaware what chemtrails are, I will do my best to give you an accurate breakdown of how I found out about them and what I’ve learned since.  I will also include some health remedies that I’ve come across which may be of some use.

Around October of 2009 I heard that our government was spraying us with chemicals from airplanes.  I should have immediately investigated further but I didn’t investigate further for a long time (many months later).

Why?  Many reasons, not least because I was consuming high levels of fluoride and my diet was basically, “eat what comes my way”.  As this began to change I gained enough sanity to start to notice the chemtrails more and investigate further.  I experienced so many synchronicities around this time, typically indicative of change in one’s life.'


Junk Science Claim That Modern Medicine Greatly Extends Life After Cancer Based on Cheap Trick

'According to a new study by Macmillan Cancer Support, people with cancer diagnoses are now living 6 times longer than they were 40 years ago. That’s what it claims, but that’s not what it shows. A fatal flaw renders the study meaningless.

All survival rates are based on the date of detection, and absolutely no evidence is given to demonstrate that people actually live longer with cancer.'


Scientists Create Lethal, Highly Contagious Bird Flu

 'The big question is WHO Benefits? 

'Perhaps Big Pharma could push a new bird flu vaccine (that would be mandatory)? The Elite Depopulation Agenda could be accelerated under the guise of a bird flu pandemic as well. The fake war on terror could also get a shot in the arm. Al-CIAda now has the lethal bird flu bio-weapon thanks to the internet! This could lead to a greater crack down on free speech via fascist internet security measures. Lots of possibilities for the controllers.' --Health Maven

'If the virus evolves to spread as easily between people as seasonal flu, however, it could cause a devastating global pandemic. So in an attempt to stay ahead of H5N1, scientists have been tweaking its genes in the lab to learn more about how this virus works, and what it is capable of.

In September, one scientist made a stunning announcement. At a flu conference held in Malta, he said he'd done a lab experiment that resulted in bird flu virus becoming highly contagious between ferrets — the animal model used to study human flu infection. It seemed that just five mutations did the trick.

It's just a bad idea for scientists to turn a lethal virus into a lethal and highly contagious virus. And it's a second bad idea for them to publish how they did it so others can copy it.'


Has Truth Occupied Wall Steet?

'An amazing thing is happening on the world stage. While the Occupy Revolution continues to be minimized, marginalized and seemingly bastardized by the mass media and even some of the alternative media, it keeps rolling on in spite of all the efforts to ignore, deter or derail it. And I think I know why. 

This now multifaceted phenomenon appears to be morphing...and in very exciting ways. Occupy just-about-anything has taken on a life of its own and energized vast multitudes of fed-up people worldwide.

Citizens everywhere are realizing their officials and leaders are sold out stooges of the military corporate complex and that they're not going to get any changes by "normal" means. So they're mobilizing--physically, mentally and spiritually. And it's wonderful--in spite of all the damn co-opters, distortionists, jealous non-participants and the like.'

Multiple Sclerosis: Marijuana-Magnesium-Iodine-Mercury Exposure


'An estimated 350,000 people in the United States are living with multiple sclerosis (MS), a painful, debilitating, and sometimes fatal disorder of the central nervous system, and the United States government could care less and would doom this population to more suffering than can be imagined. A long list of ugly words comes to mind when one thinks of any person, organization or institution that would keep helpful and safe medicines away from MS sufferers.

MS is the most common debilitating neurological disease of young people, often appearing between the ages of 20 and 40, and affecting more women than men. Symptoms vary considerably from person to person; however, the one most frequently noted is spasticity, which causes pain, spasms, loss of function, and difficulties in nursing care.'


8 Fish and Seafood Varieties You Should Never Consider Eating

'Contrary to popular belief, most fish is no longer good for you due to the massive sources of pollution in the ocean, genetic modification and farming practices which have literally transformed many species into swimming poison.

The fact that the USDA has increased its seafood recommendation to 8 ounces per week are leaving many experts dumbfounded as to why they would make this recommendation since fish are getting more toxic, not less. Many species are so high in contaminants like mercury that their health benefits are outweighed by their health risks. Others are flown in from halfway around the world, but given labels that make you think they were caught fresh earlier that morning. And still others are raised in filthy, overcrowded pools and loaded up with chemicals to keep them alive.'

First do no harm - When will doctors start to nurture their patients?

'Medicine is a dangerous thing. In fact it’s likely the most dangerous thing you will encounter in your life. It’s a peculiar thought when it’s meant to be the very thing to help us stay healthy. Our issue, at the ANH, is that medicine has forgotten that staying healthy is all about nurturing. And, unsurprisingly, the best way of nurturing is with nature.'



'Preventing unfavorable chemotherapy results from being seen by the public in TV, radio, and newspaper reporting is combined with malicious quackery charges and actual death threats to practitioners who have legitimate cancer cures. I am aware of at least a dozen cancer cures since 1900 that have been ignored or suppressed. Several persons with bonafide cancer cures have been so vilified they died alcoholics or committed suicide. 

Prominent physician Dr Milbrook Johnson was poisoned the night before he was scheduled to speak on a national radio network in the 1940s about the ability of Dr. Royal Rife’s electronic equipment to cure cancer and infections.'


FDA pulls use of breast cancer drug Avastin because of severe side effects

Not applicable: Avastin will no longer be used for breast cancer patients, but is used in the treatment of some colon, lung, kidney and brain cancers

'The blockbuster drug Avastin should no longer be used in advanced breast cancer patients because of dangerous side effects. The Food and Drug Administration declared Friday there is no proof that the drug extends the lives of advanced patients. The ruling by the FDA was long expected, but it was certain to disappoint women who say they've run out of other options as their breast cancer spread through their bodies. Impassioned patients had lobbied furiously to preserve Avastin as a last shot.'

Thanks to the FDA, You Really Have No Idea What's In Your Food

 'For years, polls have shown that about 90 percent of Americans support the labeling of foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMO). That's about as close to a consensus as you're going to get in this country. But amazingly, in this supposed bastion of freedom and democracy we're denied the fundamental right to know what's in our food -- a right that more than 50 other nations, including China and Russia, offer their citizens.

In the U.S., it's estimated that 60-70 percent of processed food may contain some GMO, but the food is not required to be labeled.'


Copenhagen votes to legalise marijuana

'The scheme, if approved by the Danish parliament at the start of next year, could make the city the first to fully legalise, rather than simply tolerate, marijuana consumption. The drug is already sold openly on the streets of Christiania, a self-proclaimed 'free town' in the city centre, despite the closure of the neighbourhood's Amsterdam-style coffee shops in 2004. 

But marijuana has never been officially decriminalised and those caught in possession of even small amounts face fines of up to £450. "We are thinking of perhaps 30 to 40 public sales houses, where the people aren't interested in selling you more, they're interested in you," said Mikkel Warming, the Mayor in charge of Social Affairs at Copenhagen City Council. "Who is it better for youngsters to buy marijuana from? A drug pusher, who wants them to use more, who wants them to buy hard drugs, or a civil servant?"'


'Monsanto Murder': Wave Of Suicides Rising Among Indian Farmers

(ED Note: This article from another source mentions "genetically modified seeds" once without implicating Monsanto directly. But what is described IS a Monsanto issue - completely.) 

'The record suicide rate among farmers in India continues to rise and is threatening the country's stability and future development, according to campaigners. They are blaming the government's policies for the agrarian crisis and are demanding it takes urgent action. More than a quarter of a million farmers have killed themselves in the last 16 years in what is the largest recorded wave of suicides in history.'
