Food Matters: Full Length Film



'The documentary "Food matters" examines the current state of America's food supply, and suggests that the over-industrialization of food production is making the nation sicker by the moment. The documentary analyzes the proliferation of chemical additives in "natural" foods, looks at the relationship between the lack of nutrients in the American diet and the nation's rising health care costs, and offers tips for system detoxification.'

Everyone knows artificial sweeteners aren't good for you, so why are people still eating them?

'I imagine I probably shot myself in the foot with the title of this piece. Over the years, health related journalism has beaten the artificial sweetener horse so beyond dead that I doubt anyone even pays attention to the words anymore. 

I know that when I see the words 'Artificial Sweetener' in the title of an article, I'm thinking "Oh good, another article about artificial sweeteners! I wonder if it will give me the exact same information as the last six articles I read about artificial sweeteners along with some sweet alternatives at the end like stevia and xylitol?" Sometimes I'll skim them to see if the author passes the acid test by not recommending honey or agave syrup (i.e., sugar and sugar).'

Who Says There is No Money in Making Vaccines? At Least 5.7 Billion Given to Vaccine Manufacturers in 2011 by US Gov’t





'In 2011, the US Federal government awarded 6 pharmaceutical corporations over 5.7 Billion to manufacture children’s vaccines alone.

According to information on the Centers for Disease Control and Federal Business Opportunities websites, the contracts were for the federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. [1,2]

The VFC program purchases the vaccines from the vaccine manufacturer. The vaccines are then distributed to state health departments and territorial public health agencies. In turn, children who couldn’t normally afford vaccines are supposed be injected at no cost. [3]

Many vaccine supporters use examples like the VFC program as indisputable proof of kindness on the part of the government and pharmaceutical companies. I think most parents have heard how generous, caring, and loving they are, haven’t you?'

Organic: Food Justice for the 99%



'Consumers increasingly turn to organic and grass-based foods, based on this scientific evidence that has been reported in magazines, including Time, in recent years. Now, the Dec 3rd issue of Time mindlessly repeats the agribusiness mantra: “Nutritionally, an egg is an egg.” Milk is milk. And canned peas, with toxic pesticide residues, heated to extreme temperatures during processing, and then placed in a container lined with a suspected endocrine disruptor, are just as healthy as those for sale at a farmer’s market, picked fresh from a local field just hours ago.'

Unneeded Skin Lesion Removals in 90% of Melanoma Patients

by Dr. Mercola

'A new report in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology1 claims that 90 percent of melanoma patients may not only have had their skin lesions removed unnecessarily, but may also have actually increased their morbidity risk by doing so.

The study looked at 300,215 melanoma excision cases that occurred over 10 years at participating clinics and dermatopathology units in 13 countries.'

'The lead author of the report attributed the unnecessary excisions to an increased awareness of patients who see anti-sun promotions such as “melanoma awareness” campaigns and run into the clinics demanding treatment.

Unfortunately, what this means is that while the melanoma epidemic appears to be real, based on surgical statistics, it actually paints a misleading picture since about 90 percent of “melanoma cases” are not real melanoma. The report highlights the necessity to get a second, and perhaps even a third opinion from a specialized clinic before going under the scalpel.'

Vaccination, The Silent Genocide




Extracts from Medical Mafia by Guylaine Lanctot, M.D.

'Why this lethal relentlessness?

What is the objective of the world authorities in destroying people's health, both in industrialized countries and in the Third World? It is always difficult to presume the intentions of others, particularly when one is not close to them. And this is true in this instance. But there are certainly advantages for someone, somewhere, to so doggedly keep-up the campaign for vaccinations, by any and all means possible. They must profit someone, somewhere. One thing is certain. It is not to our advantage. In order to determine what these advantages are, and for whom, let us stop and look at the CONSEQUENCES of these massive vaccination programs and draw our own conclusions.

I. 'Vaccination is expensive and represents a cost of one billion dollars annually. It therefore benefits the industry; most notably, the multinational manufacturers. One sells the vaccines. The other then provides the arsenal of medications to respond to the numerous complications that follow. Their profits increase while our expenses go through the roof...'

2. 'Vaccination stimulates the immune system, the body's defense mechanism. Repeated, vaccination exhausts the immune system. It gives a false sense of security and, in doing so, it opens the door wide to all kinds of illnesses. Notably, to those related to AIDS, which can only develop on ripe ground, where the immune system has been disturbed. It causes AIDS to explode. It ensures that the illness flourishes perpetually.'

5 Ways to Get More Fat in Your Diet

how to eat more fat afraid of butter use cream julia child



'When I tell people that my diet runs between 55% and 65% of my total calories from fat, they look at me like I’m growing a second head. “How do you do that?” they ask with a look that says they suddenly suspect me of deep fat frying everything I eat.

Next up, the inevitable, “Why do you do that?”

The answer to both is simple. Women like me do better on higher fat diets. It boosts our energy levels, balances our hormones, increases our fertility, contributes to serene moods, keeps our complexion glowing, and reduces the risk of having a stroke.

Yep, you read right. Generally speaking, women actually need high fat diets. The alternative is to synthesize all our saturated fat from the sugar we eat, and that comes with an unacceptable set of risks. (Hello weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.)'

Food Sickens Millions as Company-Paid Safety Checks Find It Safe

'William Beach loved cantaloupe — so much so that starting in June last year he ate it almost every day. By August, the 87-year-old retired tractor mechanic from Mustang, Oklahoma, was complaining to his family that he was fatigued, with pain everywhere in his body.

On Sept. 1, 2011, Beach got out of bed in the middle of the night, put his clothes on and walked into the living room. His wife, Monette, found him collapsed on the floor in the morning. At the hospital, blood poured from his mouth and nose, splattering sheets, bed rails and physicians.
He died that night, a victim of Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium that can lead to a blood infection and damage to the brain and spinal cord, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its November issue.'

The #1 Missed Opportunity to Boost Your Immune System

'You know the drill: You wake up with a sore throat and stuffy nose. So you dissolve a couple of Emergen-C packets in your water bottle, snuff some Afrin, and suck a few menthol cough drops. If you keep up with the latest buzz about immune boosters, you might even swallow some maitaki mushroom or astralagus extract.

Maybe you keep the cold at bay, and maybe you don’t. Which ever the case, you know that you can expect this routine on a seasonal basis. But why do you regularly get sick if you eat your fruits, veggies and acai berries?

Because our immune system doesn’t start with us. It starts with the creatures who live inside of us!

Canadian Researchers Discover New Evidence That Vitamin D Shuts Down Cancer Cells

People with higher blood levels of vitamin D live significantly longer than people who have low blood levels of the vitamin.

ED. NOTE: It's vitamin D3, not D2 or a pharmaceutical version of vitamin D, such as the stuff of fortified milk or other processed foods. D3 is in oil based gels or made in our bodies from sunlight exposure to bare skin.
  
'Researchers at McGill University have discovered a molecular basis for the cancer preventive effects of vitamin D, whereby its active form essentially shuts down cancer cells.

The team, led by McGill professors John White and David Goltzman, of the Faculty of Medicine’s Department of Physiology, discovered that the active form of vitamin D acts by several mechanisms to inhibit both the production and function of the protein cMYC. cMYC drives cell division and is active at elevated levels in more than half of all cancers. Their results are published in the latest edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.'

MSG is Dangerous — The Science Is In


Photo Credit: Food Renegade

'Ask anyone if MSG is dangerous, and you’ll get a myriad of responses. Some of the more scientifically-minded among us will scoff at the notion that MSG is dangerous or poses real health risks. Sure, they’ll allow, there are a few sensitive people who get headaches or migraines when they eat it, but MSG doesn’t actually harm the rest of us.

Or does it?

Are you one of the many who don’t believe that MSG is dangerous? Or do you, like me, believe that because it is a newfangled substance invented in 1908, we should inherently distrust it as a food additive and seriously question its safety?

And, if you are like me, what scientific research do you use to convince the doubters among your circle of family and friends? The good news is the science proving MSG is dangerous is out there, and I’ve collected a lot of here for you.'

Big Tobacco Court-Ordered To Tell Only Half The Truth

Big Tobacco Court Ordered To Tell Only Half The Truth


'This week, a U.S. judge ordered tobacco companies to publicly admit they lied about the dangers of smoking, but they are still being allowed to cover up the lethal, radiation-linked health risks associated with tobacco use.

With the latest order by a U.S. judge to force tobacco firms to admit they lied about the dangers of smoking making today's international headlines, it is easy to forget that big tobacco did not only lie, but knowingly allowed millions of smokers to suffer and die from radioisotope-contaminated tobacco poisoning with their full knowledge and consent.'

ADHD & Criminals: Drug Corporations Want To Create More Lifetime Customers



'Dr. Fred Baughman, child neurologist and ADHD researcher states that the advent of ADHD diagnoses is a scheme to sell more anti – psychotic drugs to young children by the pharmaceutical corporations in conjunction with the psychiatric community. Baughman insists that a normal development in children has now been socially accepted as a neurological disorder that requires psychiatric treatment.

Annually, Ritalin sales reach the billions and Adderall has unquestionably surpassed the once leading drug treatment for ADHD to become the drug of choice for pediatricians. However, doctors admit that the children “grow out of the symptoms of ADHD” and that none of the accepted pharmaceuticals actually cure the alleged disease.'

All Drugs and Vaccines Put Your Body into Debt to the Bankers



'People are catching on that the Bankers are creating the debt themselves.  Debt is a means of ensuring endless servitude to the Bankers by people and countries.  The greater the debt the Bankers generate, the greater the profit they make.

Interestingly, they are doing precisely the same thing in their other role as the pharmaceutical industry.  There, they depend on ensuring disease.  But the analogy to disease is not metaphoric but factual, for disease itself is also a system based on shortages.

Just as money is the central element missing if one is in debt, there is also a coin of the realm in disease – missing electrons.'

Deadly New Pertussis Strain Linked with Whooping Cough Vaccine


'Whooping cough (pertussis) has reached epidemic levels in the U.S. -- the highest in five decades. Considering a majority of those who contract the disease are vaccinated, the absurdity of the call for increased pertussis vaccinations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is yet another example of our broken medical system. Even more disturbing, scientists now suspect that vaccines are actually causing this upsurge in whooping cough -- contributing to mutations of the original bacterium into more virulent forms.'

The Effect of Electrosmog on Your Vibration



'We’re often speaking about the negative affects of electrosmog on our vibration. How it contracts us down and then disrupts higher consciousness connection. When I started to walk the path, benevolence guided me to investigate the relative affects of, for example, electricity in our homes, WiFi, mobile phones, TV and computers.

 Of course if we’re to still engage with society (in order to change it), we most probably still have to use various electro gadgets, but being aware of their affects, consciously balancing the degree of exposure, dissipating negative frequencies and connecting to the natural vibration of Gaia are all things that will generally reduce the negative impact.'

Dutch Authority Just Weeks Away From Gagging Health Journalists and Restricting Free Speech


'Under the new guidelines, any website making a medical claim will first require approval and second will be prohibited from making any other claim regarding, for example nutritional value, or identifying any other value (or detriment) of specific ingredients.
So a specific website will not be able to associate, for example chocolate, with any health benefit without approval. The same restriction will apply to any ads running on the website or any links that it may make to other websites making their own health claims regarding the benefits of chocolate. 

Can you grasp the amount of restrictions this type of regulation will attempt to enforce? I really don't think the people of the Netherlands have anything to worry about. Any piece of paper that attempts to enact control measures with this amount of fear and control in mind only head in one direction...down the toilet.'

Pinkwashing Hell: Breast Removal as a Form of "Prevention"

Removing healthy breasts to prevent breast cancer is INSANE! What's next? Remove your brain to prevent brain cancer??



Following closely on the heels of the year's most intensive annual cause-marketing campaign, October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, two chilling events of grave concern to women and their health were widely (but mostly superficially) reported on in the mainstream media.

First, Allyn Rose, Miss America contestant, announced in early November that she would be undergoing a double mastectomy to "prevent" breast cancer. Rose, a healthy 24-year old Maryland native who lost her mother to breast cancer when she was 16, has been lauded by certain media outlets as an "awareness raising" role model for having the courage to take this "precautionary step" and for spreading her mastectomy-inspired "message of preventive health care" to the masses. Many of the reports discussed how her decision was spurned by her awareness of having a genetic predisposition for breast cancer.'

Greed: The ultimate addiction


What's the unquenchable thirst for wealth all about?

What connects the various addictions is that enough is never enough - not for long anyway. As addicts progress (or rather, regress) into their addiction, to derive sufficient gratification they must constantly seek more and more of their drug of choice. For "more" is the keyword of addiction. It doesn't matter whether they're addicted to a substance, relationship, or activity - the "ante" for getting enough of the object of their craving must continually be raised.'

The Real, Bitter Costs Of Obamacare


'First of all, allow me to disabuse you of the notion that Obamacare has anything to do with “health” care. Obamacare is not about health. It’s not about lowering the cost of health insurance. And it’s not about ensuring that everyone is insured.

It is about locking more Americans into the clutches of the Big Pharma/Medical Industrial complex, providing more customers for Big Insurance and confiscating more wealth from individuals and businesses.

The American healthcare system should properly be called “sickcare.” It’s a subtle and esoteric system of population control with prescription drugs issued at the public expense by the drug cartel — the conglomerate of pharmaceutical houses.'

Is 'The New Normal' Total Control?

'It appears that food, air, water, power, pets, and your physiology, etc., are targets for control. Think about it. We have already unknowingly eaten GM food, been victims of toxic environmental disasters, un-leashed depleted uranium upon the earth, yet we sit on the sidelines watching total control unfold.

Today we have diseases that did not exist in the past, with odd symptoms. Clever people name them something and they become a new normal 'abnormal'. For example, fibromyalgia, was not a popular diagnosis in the 60's, yet today, it is more common, than not. We see 'run away' morbid obesity, and people who become helpless pharmaceutical repositories obediently following their prescribed chemical path. Each in hopes to actualize their dreams of being healthy and happy again.'

ED NOTE: TPTB stands for The Powers That Be.

'First of all, let me say here that we are not offering medical advice. The information here is simply our opinion, based on our own research and experience.

If you are wondering how it has been so easy for TPTB to have turned the overwhelming majority of American population into sheep who believe everything they are told and comply with outrageous demands and actions, it is partly because they have been replacing our good, healthy, natural foods with foods laced with poisons for decades.

Why would anyone take pleasure in adulterating the food supply? Try this theory – if TPTB can make the masses believe that the cheap crap they get fed (butter substitutes from hydrogenated oils, sugar substitutes, flavor substitutes, etc.) is actually good food, then the less the peons need to have money and the more money is available for TPTB to harvest.'

Shamanism and Spirituality



'Man is a spiritual creature, always searching for meaning. But for many people in the so-called “western world,” there is a feeling of disenchantment with the world as it is: Wake up, do your job, get a mortgage, buy a house, pay your taxes and eagerly await the weekend. Perhaps you’re one of these people.

Traditional religions don’t fill the gap. People become exasperated. They start drinking alcohol or using drugs. They see no meaning in their routine days of drudgery.

Watching some documentaries about shamanism over the last few months has gotten me thinking. A lot of these so-called “primitive” peoples appear happier than we “westerners” are. They have a sense of community, a sense of belonging and a sense of responsibility to those around them.'
