'In 1866, Russian scientist Alexander Saytzeff isolated a most curious and peculiar chemical compound. It was crystalline, odor-less, non-toxic and had a garlic-like taste when consumed. At the time, Saytzeff had no way to predict that his discovery was going to prove highly controversial throughout its entire medical history, that it was going to be tested in thousands of studies and provide miraculous relief for numerous patients.
I'm talking here about dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), an organic sulfur compound which was used only as an industrial solvent, that is, until its medical properties were discovered in 1963 by a research team headed by Stanley W. Jacob, MD.'
'It’s the biggest medical scandal in U.S. history… and it hasn’t even happened yet!
The feds are getting ready to pump children and possibly babies full of the anthrax vaccine — despite the fact that this same vaccine has already been linked to nerve damage, autoimmune disorders and even DEATH in adults.
Of course, they know this will be a hard sell to an American public that’s becoming increasingly skeptical of vaccines — so they’re pushing it forward the only way they can: with ruthless fear-mongering.
“At the end of the day, do we want to wait for an attack and give it to millions and millions of children and collect data at that time?” Daniel B. Fagbuy, chair of the National Biodefense Science Board panel that signed off on the plan, told the Washington Post.'
War on Drugs Revealed as Total Hoax - US Military Admits to Guarding, Assisting Lucrative Opium Trade in Afghanistan
'Afghanistan is, by far, the largest grower and exporter of opium in the world today, cultivating a 92 percent market share of the global opium trade. But what may shock many is the fact that the US military has been specifically tasked with guarding Afghan poppy fields, from which opium is derived, in order to protect this multibillion dollar industry that enriches Wall Street, the CIA, MI6, and various other groups that profit big time from this illicit drug trade scheme.'
'Drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline has preliminarily agreed to a $3 billion settlement over the sales and marketing practices of several of its drugs, including the diabetes drug Avandia.
This represents the largest federal drug-company settlement to date, surpassing the $2.3 billion paid by Pfizer in 2009 for illegally promoting off-label uses of four of its drugs. The sum, though extraordinarily large by most people's standards, represents only a slap on the wrist to the drug giant, which assured investors the payments would be funded by "existing cash resources."
To put things into perspective, GlaxoSmithKline has a market value of more than $110 billion, according to the New York Times.'
'Are you ready for this? China is getting into the vaccine making business. Holy cow! There goes the vaccine industry, in my opinion. Why do I say that? Well, as a whole, anything to come out of China in the past few years has either been declared toxic or recalled for various reasons. Remember baby formula with melamine in it? Back in 2008, the U.S. FDA confirmed traces of melamine in baby formula. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/25/fda-finds-traces-of-melam_n_146536.html'
'Another study obfuscating the cause of autism now purports to show that boys with regressive autism have bigger brains, but that they don’t start to grow until age four months. They’re claiming that, on average, these boys have brains that are 6% bigger than normal. Aside from the fact that the study size is too small to draw any statistical conclusions—though that certainly didn’t bother the authors—the results do not support the conclusion drawn. Instead, it supports vaccinations as a primary cause of autism. The hype, of course, is quite different:'

'I have never seen, in all my time, so many people holding signs on street corners asking for money, food and work. My wife spotted a couple in their forties living in their car in the middle of a crowded WalMart parking lot. I am seeing more of that, too. I was watching CNBC Monday, and one analyst basically said the economy was good and getting better.
He pointed to the great sales numbers on Black Friday. Of course, no one adjusted the sales numbers for inflation. Also, many think the retailers just stole sales from the rest of the holiday shopping season. The number of people living in cars and tents have gone up, and it is not the sign of a healthy economy. The true unemployment rate is nearly 23% (according to Shadowstats.com) if it was calculated the way Bureau of Labor and Statistics reported it in 1994 and earlier.
The homelessness phenomenon is making it’s way into the mainstream media because it is a national problem that is also reflected in the record numbers of people on food stamps. The number is nearly 46 million and growing as the real economy sinks. Please watch the story below from 60 Minutes that aired this past weekend. It is a sad mile marker on the road to perdition here in the U.S.'
'It seems as though the "necessity" of childhood vaccinations, widely voiced by many mainstream health officials and government figureheads, is simply not being accepted by parents around the country. While the rates of children receiving vaccines remains high, we are seeing an increase in childhood vaccine exemption rates. In eight different states, more than 1 in 20 public kindergartners are not receiving all the vaccines that the government 'requires' for school attendance.'
'Wondering why there's so much interest in flax lately? It's because flax oil and flax seeds have been shown to lower blood cholesterol and triglycerides without side effects, and to help reduce damage to cell membranes.
Flax is also important in the body's ability to reduce inflammation and prevent the many degenerative diseases associated with it. Studies have shown that women with a high intake of flax oil and flax lignans are at much lower risk of developing breast cancer.
Research is now documenting the benefits of flax oil, lignans, and flax meal in preventing and treating cancers of the gastrointestinal tract and colon, and breast cancer metastasis.'
'For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives.
People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone's capacity for growth. Some changes were phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, as expected, denial, fear, anger, remorse, more denial and eventually acceptance. Every single patient found their peace before they departed though, every one of them.
When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:'
'That seems to be the path a new recommendation is putting us on.'
'An expert panel appointed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, is now urging cholesterol screening for all children between ages 9 and 11 - before puberty, when cholesterol temporarily dips - and again between ages 17 and 21. News accounts discuss a family who put their daughter on cholesterol-lowering medicines when she was 5 ("that gives me hope that she'll be healthy") and a doctor at Johns Hopkins who thinks his 12-year-old son should be tested "because he has a cousin with very high 'bad' cholesterol."'
'A hundred years ago, a few intrepid souls initiated a revolution in health in America. They talked and wrote about nutrition, about fasting, about supplementation. They were the health nuts.
They had a very wide vision of the future. They realized their audience was small, but that didn’t matter. They pushed ahead.
Today, millions of Americans have caught on. The underground is quite visible. It isn’t an underground anymore.'
'If you want to change the world, change how you eat. If you have any doubt about that, just consider the source of your food. Supermarkets are not in the business of providing wholesome food from farms. Their business is making profits off whatever can be passed off as food. The pastorial farm so often alluded to in advertisements and on packages has no basis in reality.'

Raw milk freedom riders to ride again, to challenge FDA on fetching milk for others across state lines
'On December 8, a group of mothers and others will defy the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) ban on “distributing” fresh milk across state lines by transporting 100 gallons of raw milk from Wisconsin to Chicago’s Independence Park and distributing it to customers waiting at the park. Federal law 21 CFR § 1240.61 prohibits interstate movement and distribution of raw milk for human consumption. The FDA regulation applies to individuals, or “agents” acting on their behalf.'
'According to pharmaceutical drug-based psychiatry, depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. In spite of decades of research, this has never been proven. Now though, we’re seeing claims from medical science that PET scans prove there is a physical basis for depression. Are those claims meaningful—or merely flummery designed to give an impression with no bearing on reality?'
'Tis The Season to Gorge on Sugar?
How did you do this weekend? Lots of sugar and processed food? Feeling bloated, tired, overstressed, or sick?
We all know that sugar is bad for us. We all grew up being told - don't eat too much or you'll get sick. Many people enjoy the flavor of sugar but don't really consider themselves to be addicted to it. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with my good friend, Samantha Taylor. Samantha is a fitness guru and renowned sugar addiction specialist.
When you hear about the symptoms of sugar addiction, you might find that they hit pretty close to home, so make sure you stay tuned this week, because I will be talking about the detriments of sugar and exposing sugar addiction for what it really is. I've even got a quiz for you to take to help identify whether sugar addiction is part of your problem.'
'Proposed New Zealand legislation—thus far sliding through the legislative process like a greased pig—will force controls on food production that can only favor multinational growers and threaten the existence of all small operations. It treats foods as a commodity and eliminates the presumption that people can grow and access their foods of choice.'
'On Dec. 6, New York’s Suffolk County government will hold a public hearing on a proposal to ban aerial spraying of aluminum oxide, barium, sulfur, and other salts into the air over the county without first filing an Environmental Impact Statement with and receiving approval from the county’s Department of Health Services, Division of Environmental Quality.
Exempted from the proposed ban are aerosol spraying operations for agriculture, and for lyme disease, Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), West Nile virus (WNV), and other disease vector control operations.
The hearing will be held at the Riverhead Legislative Auditorium, Evans K. Griffing Building, 300 Center Drive in Riverhead, NY at 2:30 pm. If the public is able to convince legislators of the risk from such geoengineering operations, the legislation will then be voted on at the Dec. 20th session. Otherwise, the proposed ban will be tabled indefinitely.'

'Here we go again folks. It’s that time of year when we show our holiday spirit by plunging headlong, eyes wide shut, into personal debt to support China and other countries while our own America slides further into economic chaos. But don’t let that stop you. By all means, go out and spend that last dime on the credit card for a Taiwan trinket. The credit card company will probably be more than willing to increase your limit. Just don’t miss a payment. Can’t pay? Too bad. We’ll simply increase your interest rate and tell all the other credit card companies so that they increase your interest rates also.'
'Cast-iron skillets may seem like an old-fashioned choice in the kitchen. But this dependable cookware is a must in the modern kitchen. Cast-iron skillets conduct heat beautifully, go from stove top to oven with no problem and last for decades. (In fact, my most highly prized piece of cookware is a canary-yellow, enamel-coated cast-iron paella pan from the 1960s that I scored at a stoop sale for $5.) As a registered dietitian and associate nutrition editor of EatingWell Magazine, I also know that there are some great health reasons to cook with cast iron.'

READ: Confessions of an "ex" Peak Oil Believer
[Editor's Note: Jan. 22, 2008. 'If you've been following the Peak Oil scam since CIA family man Michael Ruppert helped launched this Tavistock disinformation campaign about four yeas ago in league with Ford Foundation-funded Amy Goodman , most Pacifica radio stations, NPR radio, and sundry mainstream outlets, you can realize just how satisfying it is to read an article titled "Confessions of an "ex" Peak Oil Believer."
Thankfully, bulldog investigative journalist Dave McGowan jumped on this story early and hasn't released his iron jaw grip on Ruppert's thigh or that of any other downstream disinformation cohorts who have attempted to buttress the Peak Oil caper since Ruppert's ignominious flight from this country a couple of years ago.
Of course, the Peak Oil hoax, along with its cousin Global Warming, is still in its ascendancy and we don't expect to soon hear mea culpas echoing from Nightline, Jim Leher, Charlie Rose, Frontline, or the growing ranks of Peak Oil promoting authors filling the talk show circuit on the radio or the internet, but it is a step in the right direction and should serve to remind readers that steadfastly holding to the facts, will eventually pierce the mind wash of propaganda, no matter how well funded or widely distributed it may be.'
'There are more than 60 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. There are cannabinoid receptors in your brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and more; both the therapeutic and psychoactive properties of marijuana occur when a cannabinoid (such as the THC produced by the cannabis plant) activates a cannabinoid receptor.
Your body also has naturally occurring endocannabinoids that stimulate your cannabinoid receptors and produce a variety of important physiologic processes, far beyond that of the traditional "highs" associated with THC.
What is amazing is that your body is actually hard-wired to respond to cannabinoids through this unique cannabinoid receptor system; research is still ongoing on just how extensive their impact is on our health, but to date it's known that cannabinoid receptors play an important role in many body processes, including metabolic regulation, cravings, pain, anxiety, bone growth, and immune function.'
'News media throughout Australia have been doing Big Pharma’s work by telling parents that they no longer have a choice in vaccinating their children. They’re told that refusal will result in the loss of family tax benefits.
That’s sorta kinda true. However, there is a way of getting around the new rules—and I’m going to give you that information.'
'In a final chapter of his book, Hypnotic States of Americans, Roy Masters asks, “When a crime is committed under hypnosis, who is the real perpetrator? Masters says that, “From time to time, something in the news calls our attention to something that our laws and our criminal justice system have not yet taken adequately into account. This is the very real fact that quite often the actual perpetrator of a crime is acting under the influence of a hypnotic state when the crime is committed, and does something the real person never would have done otherwise.”
Masters takes us to a question that addresses some delicate areas of life. Before we look at the imagination and the power of identification that is its throttle, we can ask one of the most important questions in medicine. Are doctors deliberately conditioned and hypnotized in medical school and held captive by their local medical boards?'
