Aspartame: More Unsavoury Side Effects

'Here's another great article on the dangers of Aspartame. These appear pretty regularly in newsletters and online simply because it is probably the 2nd most dangerous thing to your health right now (after prescription & non-prescription drugs). Print these articles off, send the links to friends and family and hope and pray that they get the message to avoid this terrible health hazard.

There are over 92 different health side effects associated with aspartame consumption. It seems surreal, but true. How can one chemical create such chaos? Aspartame dissolves into solution and can therefore travel throughout the body and deposit within any tissue.'


1,300+ Chemicals Are Messing with Your Hormones

'Take a gander at the list of more than 1,300 potential hormone disrupting chemicals just released by researchers at The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, and you may not feel overly concerned at first. You might think, "Glyphosate? Dimethylbenzene? Benzoic acid? What's that got to do with me, and what exactly is a hormone disruptor, anyway?"
But the truth is, many of these industrial chemicals (which were never adequately tested for long-term health effects before being introduced to the general public) have found their way into products we come into contact with each and every day—pesticides in food, on our lawns, and inside our homes.'


Dr. Lynne Fenton, The Batman Killer, Drugs And Drug Money

'There is pressure on both attorneys in the case, too. And the cops. With an insanity plea lurking in the wings, Holmes’ medical records could very well see the light of day. That would let everybody know what the drugs were. So somebody is calling the governor of Colorado, and other state officials, and they’re trying to maneuver and manipulate the legal process, to make the medical records vanish.
Come on. This isn’t just a murder case. Now it’s about money. Big pharma lawyers are reading up on Colorado law to find loopholes, ways to get around revealing Holmes’ medical history.
Holmes is now a pawn. He’s the nowhere kid who is going to be shuttled around on the game board to save the drug money for the people who own it'.'

Osteoporosis Myth: The Dangers of High Bone Mineral Density

Bone Scans or Scams? How Dense Bones Can Harm Your Health

Bone Mineral Density is NOT Equivalent to Bone Strength

'As you can see there are a number of insurmountable problems with the WHO's definitions, but perhaps the most fatal flaw is the fact that the Dual energy X-ray absorpitometry device (DXA) is only capable of revealing the mineral density of the bone, and this is not the same thing as bone quality/strength.

While there is a correlation between bone mineral density and bone quality/strength – that is to say, they overlap in places -- they are not equivalent. In other words, density, while an excellent indicator of compressive strength (resisting breaking when being crushed by a static weight), is not an accurate indicator of tensile strength (resisting breaking when being pulled or stretched).

Indeed, in some cases having higher bone density indicates that the bone is actually weaker.


So Just What Is Disease? A Grand Unified Theory

So Just What Is Disease? A Grand Unified Theory

'Does the common use of the word "disease" bypass critical reasoning to effectively mislead scientific thought? Modern medicine describes hundreds of individual "diseases." Each "disease" is generally named for a group of symptoms and the area of the body affected. Many are suffixed by -itis, meaning inflammation of... like tonsill-itis or arthr-itis. And interestingly, recent studies are finding inflammation involved in virtually all of them. 

 Does this terminology serve to pigeonhole distinct "diseases" and distract us from seeing the big picture of inflammation as the disease? Have we been looking at secondary pathologies and opportunistic microbes, and treating them at symptom-level... instead of addressing a common root cause? Is there some imaginary partition that separates human health from chemistry, physics and cell biology?'


Antioxidants Found to Reduce Pancreatic Cancer Risk

'Pancreatic cancer is a silent disease. This is because many times the signs and symptoms can go unnoticed until the cancer is in the advanced stage. And even when there are early signs and symptoms, they can often be vague and easily attributed to something else.

Since pancreatic cancer often lacks these early warning signs and there aren’t any effective screening tests, it’s rarely discovered early. Many times the diagnosis is not made until the cancer has spread to other areas of the body.'


Pentagon and Vaccines--What's Wrong With This Picture?

'Utilizing vaccines grown on tobacco cells, instead of the traditional chicken eggs, DARPA has turned out a staggering 10 million doses of flu vaccine in just one month.

This "Blue Angel" project, as it's called, suddenly puts the Pentagon in the forefront of the vaccine business. The big question is: why is the Army involved in vaccines at all? And the answer is no surprise. According to DARPA, it's all about readiness in containing bio-threats. Translated, that means terrorist attacks that could use flu viruses.

This is a sinister development. It creates a potential scenario in which the military can invent the "bio-threat" and then step in and provide the solution. It doesn't really matter whether the bio-threat is real or imaginary.'


WHY in the World Are They Spraying? Lifts Veil on Geo-engineering

“WHY in the World are They Spraying?” lifts the veil on a major geo-engineering agenda that is at the forefront of our fight for food sovereignty. There are people who are working full time at controlling the food and thereby, controlling the population while maximizing profit at the expense of those whom they profit from, and like a tick that sucks the blood from its host with no thought whatsoever of the host’s health or well being, these people put profit ahead of life. And it appears that they may be spraying our skies…
I can’t begin to tell you how geo-engineering can change the face of agriculture as we know it.''

Yummy! Digestible Microchips Embedded in Drugs

'Digestible microchips embedded in drugs may soon tell doctors whether a patient is taking their medications as prescribed. These sensors are the first ingestible devices approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To some, they signify the beginning of an era in digital medicine.

“About half of all people don’t take medications like they’re supposed to,” says Eric Topol, director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute in La Jolla,California. “This device could be a solution to that problem, so that doctors can know when to rev up a patient’s medication adherence.” Topol is not affiliated with the company that manufactures the device, Proteus Digital Health in Redwood City,California, but he embraces the sensor’s futuristic appeal, saying, “It’s like big brother watching you take your medicine.”'


Avoiding Heart Disease & Strokes

'Many doctors do not believe that people have to be sitting ducks for deadly heart attacks or strokes for that matter. Heart disease can be prevented—and even reversed—with the right information and simple lifestyle adjustments. That said, most heart specialists have not the slightest idea of the most basic cause of heart disease and most doctors today have not the slightest idea about the benefits of good nutrition.

Even clinical nutritionists, card-carrying members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics—generally known to the public by its old name, the American Dietetic Association—really know nothing about how malnutrition leads directly to heart attacks. That does not stop them from wanting legal control over who may provide nutrition counseling in a professional context. That means that they really want to see millions suffer and die. The ignorance of cardiologists about magnesium alone actually guarantees that heart disease will continue to kill a million people each year in America alone.'


Apricot Kernels and Bitter Almonds Display Promising Effects

Apricot Kernels and Bitter Almonds Display Promising Effects

'In September of 1983 my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was dead in 6 weeks. I remember the anguish and the frustration as the medical doctors offered no hope. I had been in practice for only 3 years and the Internet was nonexistent back then. But I recall going to the library to do research about healing cancer without toxic drugs or radiation. I also called "cancer clinics" all over North America and Mexico, trying to find a solution to my father's illness.

Thus began my quest to understand how to heal and prevent cancer.'


Slow Kill Vaccine, by Dees Illustration

'More and more people are afflicted with life-sucking chronic diseases as a result of vaccinations. So, pseudo science is trying its best to deliver support for the party line: Find more reasons to give more vaccines more often.'

'Shingles is a painful nerve disease that results from the same virus that causes chicken pox. It tends to strike people whose immune systems are compromised, such as those with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, or Crohn’s disease. These are all autoimmune conditions and, as Gaia Health has documented, are associated with vaccinations. They are, in fact, largely caused by excessive vaccinating.
Therefore, the common response of health regulatory agencies has been to … give another vaccination?!!! That’s right. Logic is not a strong suit of these agencies. They’re set up to promote vaccinations, and they’re going to promote them no matter what the evidence shows.'


Two Apples a Day More Effective At Reducing Heart Disease Than Statin Medications

'More evidence continues to surface supporting the superior effectiveness of nature's foods over medication in preventing disease. New research shows that just two apples a day could help protect women against heart disease lowering blood fat levels by almost 25 percent, a claim unattainable by cardiovascular prescription medications.

Scientists found apples significantly lowered blood fat levels in postmenopausal women, the group most at risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Studies in the past have found that flavonoids act as antioxidants -- enzymes that target free radicals that can damage DNA. Flavonoids are commonly found in chocolate, green tea and other fruits and vegetables.
Snacking on the fruit every day for six months slashed levels of so-called "bad cholesterol" by almost a quarter, a figure that all statin drugs combined cannot attain.'


Having Seen the Evidence, I Don't Touch Fizzy Drinks Any More. Frankly They're Evil, Says Leading Biologist

'The research, by Bangor University and published in the European Journal Of Nutrition, reported that soft drinks actually alter metabolism, so that our muscles use sugar for energy instead of burning fat.
It seems that exposure to liquid sugar causes genes in our muscles to change their behaviour, perhaps permanently. Not only do we pile on weight, but our metabolism becomes less efficient and less able to cope with rises in blood sugar, say the researchers. This, in turn, increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.
‘Having seen all the medical evidence, I don’t touch soft drinks now,’ says Dr Hans-Peter Kubis, a biological scientist and expert in exercise nutrition who led the research. 'I think drinks with added sugar are, frankly, evil.’


Newly Emerged H3N8 Seal Flu Virus Touted as Next ‘Pandemic’

'A number of reports within the mainstream news arena have begun surfacing surrounding the newly emerging H3N8 'seal flu virus', labeling it as the ‘next pandemic’ and hammering on the possibility for the virus to spread among humans.
It seems that the media ultimately likes to hype up all pandemic ‘threats’ whether it be the notoriously-mild swine flu ‘pandemic’ or the looming bird flu explosion. 

With the surfacing of so many touted pandemics and alarming viruses always comes a push for rushed vaccinations, later followed by haunting reports of severe side effects (and years later confirmed by medical journals.)

But what about the seal flu virus? Is it a real threat, or a phony pandemic scare?'

Circumcision - Conditioning the Adult by Torturing the Child


 'Circumcision started in America during the masturbation hysteria of the Victorian Era, when a few American doctors circumcised boys to punish them for masturbating. Victorian doctors knew very well that circumcision denudes, desensitizes, and disables the penis. Nevertheless, they were soon claiming that circumcision cured epilepsy, convulsions, paralysis, elephantiasis, tuberculosis, eczema, bed-wetting, hip-joint disease, fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse, wet dreams, hernia, headaches, nervousness, hysteria, poor eyesight, idiocy, mental retardation, and insanity. 

In fact, no procedure in the history of medicine has been claimed to cure and prevent more diseases than circumcision. As late as the 1970s, leading American medical textbooks still advocated routine circumcision as a way to prevent masturbation. The antisexual motivations behind an operation that entails cutting off part of the penis are obvious.'


The Signs of a Poor Night’s Sleep

'You feel sluggish and achy all the time. Your mood changes at the drop of a hat. Your boss thinks you’re losing your edge as you can’t seem to stay on top of things like you did a few years ago. 

Your doctor says you’re going through an inevitable “change” of life and are probably depressed. Perhaps he has also started you on an antidepressant.

Do you relate to any of this? Well, if you do, you’re not alone. Millions of middle-aged Americans — both men and women — are indeed going through this "life change". And yes -  in many cases, these symptoms are related to the loss of hormones characteristic of middle age. 

But could it be something else? Quite possibly.'


6 Healthy Reasons to Eat More Real Cinnamon (Not its Cousin)

6 Healthy Reasons to Eat More Real Cinnamon (Not its Cousin)

'If you live in North America or Europe that jar of "cinnamon" in your cupboard is probably not truly cinnamon at all, but a very similar spice known as cassia or "bastard cinnamon."

True cinnamon is usually labeled "Ceylon cinnamon" and comes principally from Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar, Brazil and the Caribbean. Cassia, on the other hand, is often designated as "Chinese cinnamon" or "Saigon cinnamon" and comes principally from Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Japan and Korea.

Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices and most popular spices, and has been used for millennia both for its flavoring and medicinal qualities. In ancient Egypt, it was used to fill body cavities of corpses as an embalming agent. In ancient Rome it was considered so valuable that the Emperor Nero burned a year's supply on his wife's funeral pyre as proof of his devotion to her.'


More Evidence Proving Abundant Natural Environments and Outdoors Benefit Health


'Turns out that your mother’s advice to get out and get some fresh air may have been wiser than she even knew, with one study showing the benefits of nature. A study that analyzed morbidity of more than 345,000 people based on records from 195 different physicians spread across the Netherlands, individuals with a higher percentage of green space within a 1 km radius in the immediate vicinity of their postal code had a lower prevalence of 15 of 24 disease clusters. Morbidity was classified according to the International Classification of Primary Care, a classification “developed in response to an increasing demand for quality information on primary care as part of growing worldwide attention to global primary health care objectives, including the World Health Organization’s target of ‘health for all.'''


White House Chef Says Future Food to Be Made From Chemicals, Not Real Food Ingredients

'As reported on Six One News, a feature of RTE News in Ireland, Yosses and several other food experts showed a live audience how to create various foams, gels, solids, and other food-like textured substances out of chemicals that, when combined, resemble things like lemon souffle and chocolate pudding. These food scientists then shared samples of these laboratory creations with audience members, who were told that the imitation food products are the wave of the future.'


Man Cures Eye Infection With Honey After Medicated Eye Drops Failed

'A man who spent eight years searching for a cure for a chronic eye condition was amazed when he finally found the remedy in a jar of honey which surpassed any attempts at healing with prescription medication.

Honey has been used for thousands of years, but its medicinal popularity fell when antibiotics became the go-to treatment. Raw, natural honey contains a variety of antioxidants and enzymes, and also has antibacterial properties, which can be effective both internally and externally. Raw honey has historically been used on the skin because it contains an antiseptic substance called inhibine which may prevent infection.'

STOP Mandatory Mental Screening and Drugging of Our Children

'This petition is in support of The Parental Consent Act, a federal bill introduced by Congressman Ron Paul, which prohibits federal funds being used to establish or implement any mandatory or universal mental health/psychiatric screening of schoolchildren. It also establishes a parent’s right to refuse mental health screening of their child. This is a crucial bill which must be passed to guarantee parental rights. We urge everyone to sign the petition in support of this bill.'


Refusing To Put A Normal Child On Psych Drugs Results In Swat Teams and a Tank

'This may shed some light on why Ron Paul wants forced psychiatric drugging of our school children STOPPED! A caring and competent Michigan mother refuses to let child services take her very normal child and forcibly drug her with psychiatric medications. The reaction from the state was to bring in the swat teams and a tank for a day long stand off. Who needs a swat team and a tank to take on a mother and her daughter? This is America and this is one of the most disgusting violations of the constitution I have ever witnessed…'

Three Reasons Why You May be Vitamin D Deficient

 'It's estimated that over 95 percent of U.S. senior citizens may be deficient in vitamin D, along with 85 percent of the American public. Researchers have noted that vitamin D deficiency is prevalent in adults of all ages who have increased skin pigmentation (such as those whose ancestors are from Africa, the Middle East, or India), or who always wear sun protection or limit their outdoor activities.

The truth is that many are under the false impression that they’re getting enough vitamin D, when their levels are seriously deficient. 

Three major reasons for this are:'

Is Consensus Science Junk Science?

'Dogma is no stranger to science, despite the fact they should have no place as bedfellows. As more and more governments and world leaders look upon science as the universal guiding principle for human life on planet Earth, it is becoming increasingly warped by dogma, subjectivity and — most recently — corporatism. Rather than serving as a tool to help us make sense of an extraordinarily complex world, we are now encouraged to rely on it to solve the problems corporate science has itself generated.  Boiling it down to a simple analogy: it’s a little like asking the bull to repair the damage in the china shop…


Vaccinations Inevitably Cause Autoimmune Diseases: PLoS Study

'A major curse of modern living is the advent of mass suffering from chronic autoimmune diseases. They have become the way we live and the way we die. Now, a study published inPLoS One has documented that vaccinations may be causing this plague.
The study, Self-Organized Criticality Theory of Autoimmunity, produced a wide variety of tests on animals to examine the fact that, as they stated:
Repeated immunization with antigen causes systemic autoimmunity in mice otherwise not prone to spontaneous autoimmune diseases.
They concluded:
Systemic autoimmunity appears to be the inevitable consequence of over-stimulating the host’s immune ‘system’ by repeated immunization with antigen, to the levels that surpass system’s self-organized criticality.
In other words, they found that, not only is vaccination a possible or even probable cause of autoimmune disorders, but that:'


Cinnamon beats Alzheimers

'The miracle spice cinnamon is the scented bark of a tropical evergreen tree, native to India and Sri Lanka. Cinnamon comes from an evergreen tree in Southeast Asia and is cultivated widely in Vietnam, China, Burma, and Laos for its bark and the oil processed from the bark. Once upon a time in ancient Rome, cinnamon was worth more than silver.

Cinnamon is harvested from the inner bark of the tree branches after scraping off the corky outer layer and then drying the bark. As it dries, the bark curls up into quills which are then cut into sticks to be ground into the spice form. Full of calcium and fiber, cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices, it is mentioned in the Bible and was used in ancient Egypt as medicine, beverage flavoring and an embalming agent.'

Making Delicious Hummus From Scratch

'At $4 for an 8 oz tub of organic hummus, keeping my 4 year old in hummus could get expensive. He loves the stuff. I've been wanting to make my own for a long time, but I had some trouble acquiring bulk organic chickpeas, and I wasn't willing to settle for canned beans. You can definitely use canned beans for this recipe though; it will save you some time but add a bit to the cost. I finally got a 25 lb bag of organic chickpeas for $32, so now I'll be making hummus from scratch for quite a while!

I like to give beans a good soaking before I cook them, and for this hummus I actually let them sprout for a day or two first. Sprouting increases digestability and decreases cooking time. It's also easy, though it's not essential if you don't have the time.'

Research suggests that people with diabetes can reap some benefits from regular yoga practice. 

'Type 2 diabetes is quickly becoming one of the most common, and debilitating, diseases in the United States. As more and more people develop diabetes, they've started turning to complementary and alternative therapies, such as yoga, to treat the disorder, but not all those therapies work. A study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine last year analyzed all the available research looking at yoga's influence on diabetes and complications of diabetes (for instance, kidney problems and high blood pressure) and found that, although not enough evidence exists to support the idea that yoga leads to long-term improvements, the authors did find that regular yoga practice led to short-term improvements in fasting glucose and cholesterol levels.'

9 Body Hacks to Naturally Increase Testosterone

Obesity, like diabetes, also appears to have a negative effect on testosterone levels, according to a new study. "The fact that almost one-third of the U.S. is obese, these observations have profound . . . public health implications," says Sandeep Dhindsa.

By Dr. Mercola
'Testosterone, a hormone produced primarily by the testicles, is often associated with the epitome of "manhood" (although women have testosterone, too).
Indeed, it does play a large role in male sexuality and reproduction, impacting such factors as sexual and reproductive function, muscle mass, and hair growth, but also has some less "flashy," albeit equally important, roles like maintaining bone density, levels of red blood cells and a sense of well-being.
Beginning around age 30, a man's testosterone levels begin to decline, and continue to do so as he ages.
A wide range of chemical exposures included prescribed drugs like statins, adversely impact testosterone production in men. At the same time, estrogen levels typically increase due to widespread exposures to estrogen-mimicking compounds in food, water and environmental pollutants.'
