'Even though something as simple as baking soda can cure cancer, we are not supposed to say that or even think it without the threat of FDA marines flying in through the windows. Saying that sodium bicarbonate treats cancer and should be used by every cancer patient is something the International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA) has been saying for years. Recent research now backs that assertion.'

'If I ever travel to other US states I’d like to be able to buy raw milk by prescription. Since you can easily get many things by prescription these days…All kind of dangerous substances. FDA says raw milk is “dangerous”. So I bet I could get it by prescription!

Seriously, genetically modified foods, processed foods, Frankenfoods! growth hormones in animals, pesticides, chemicals, vaccines and a huge variety of medication with serious side effects are all allowed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)!

But when it comes to RAW MILK the FDA continues to play hard and make everything possible to wipe it out from the Earth’s surface!'

'An amazingly healthful food utilized for over 5,000 years, sesame may be one of the most potent, nutrient-dense medicinal foods still used today. Sesame seeds are not only praised for their nutritional content in seed form, but are also highly valued for their rancid-resistant oil. In fact, once you learn of the health benefits of sesame seeds, you may just find yourself stocking up on this ancient condiment.'

At Last, the Truth: Butter is GOOD for You - and Margarine is Chemical Gunk


'Like my grandmother before me, I have never had a tub of margarine in the house. Perhaps thanks to her, my gut instinct has always told me that butter is better for you.

Not only does butter taste incomparably better, it's a natural product that human beings have been eating and cooking with for centuries without ­damaging their health.

Why swap it for margarine, a highly synthetic and unpleasant-tasting concoction laced with additives and cheap, low-grade oils refined on an industrial scale?'

Study Suggests Chicken Pox Vaccine Responsible for Triggering Nationwide Shingles Epidemic

But a new study published in the German medical journal Der Hautarzt, or "The Dermatologist" in English, has revealed that the childhood vaccine for chicken pox, a common viral disease related to shingles, may actually be directly responsible for triggering this epidemic.'

Government Tracks Your DNA Without Your Consent

'Our children are in the Brave New World. Their DNA is already being taken at birth and stored in state’s databases. Muddled excuses are used to take this most intimate of identifiers, but that suggestion is absurd, as they can be diagnosed without DNA. It’s being done for government databases.'

'Several states in the U.S. are storing your baby’s DNA sequence. It’s generally being done without your knowledge. All United States newborns’ DNA is now routinely screened for genetic disorders. Parental approval is not required—nor are parents informed. Our children are being born into a Brave New World.

Although the baby’s name is not supposed to be kept with the DNA samples, that begs the question of how parents are informed when their children are found to have genetic diseases. And who really believes that such information is kept private?'

How To Address Autoimmune Illness

 https://ufandshands.org/sites/default/files/graphics/images/en/17134.jpg

'You have countless immune cells in every corner of your body that are constantly working to keep you healthy by identifying, packaging, and eliminating harmful substances that have made their way into your blood.

If your immune system falters and begins to identify some of your own tissues as being harmful or unnecessary, it will work to attack and eliminate these tissues through an inflammatory response that can cause pain and discomfort in many forms - this is how autoimmune illness develops.'

Real Salt, Celtic Salt and Himalayan Salt

Description: http://www.rawmazing.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/DSC_09711.jpg

'This is what real salt looks like—we all know what regular white salt looks like—and we mistakenly think it is real salt when it is not. The fact is that refined white salt, such as commercial table salt is bad, very bad stuff. Unrefined natural salt on the other hand is good, very good stuff providing many health benefits.

Unrefined sea salt is healthy. The blood-pressure-raising effect of table salt can be due to its high content of sodium with not enough magnesium to balance it. This has a magnesium-lowering effect that can constrict the arteries and raise blood pressure. Real salt (of various kinds) contains plenty of magnesium and other important minerals, which is why it usually does not affect blood pressure in a negative way.'

Debunking the GMO Talking Points with Ease

'This article is an excerpt from The Health Conspiracy and How To End It that has been expanded upon.

Debunking the GMO Talking Points with Ease

#1 GMOs are needed to feed the world.

This is always a future based “goal” never to be obtained any time soon. GMOs have been on the market since 1996. When are they going to feed the world? The answer is never because that’s not what they are intended to do. 

I’ve heard an estimate of 80% of the GMOs grown in the US is used for force feeding factory farmed animals. USA today reported, “It takes about 15 pounds of feed to make 1 pound of beef, 6 pounds of feed for 1 pound of pork and 5 pounds of feed for 1 pound of chicken”. Do you think we could feed the world with those numbers?'

If You Believe In Vaccines, You Don't Believe In The Perfection of The Human Body

 

'Plain and simple, you can't believe in both. The marketing of vaccines relies on fear and intimidation with a constant amplification of a myth that the human body is somehow flawed and incapable of protecting itself against foreign invaders. 

Humans have lived on the Earth for hundreds of millennia, yet in the span of only one century, mass populations have been duped into believing they can no longer survive on this planet without foreign DNA and man-made chemicals being injected into their bodies. The lies have been repeated so often that they have become the truth for billions of people--and regardless of the resources and logic these people are presented with, they will defend their truth until their time has come to see an alternative perspective.'

Fatty Liver and Foie Gras: When Humans Are Forced-Fed Sugar

 
 
'Foie gras is a French gourmet delicacy. It is delicious and extremely fatty. Foie gras” translates to “fatty liver” in English and in order to make it, geese or ducks are forced-fed large amounts of a wet mash of corn. Their livers balloon up to about 6-10 times their normal size and are packed full of fat. This serves as a clear picture of the fattening effects of carbs and how it promotes a fatty deposition in the liver. It also explains the epidemic proportions of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (fatty liver for short) that we are seeing nowadays.

For the most part mainstream doctors ignore how to treat or deal with this condition and a lot of folks are left in the dark as to the real reasons behind fatty liver. So I decided to approach the subject for a clinical session with peer reviewed journal articles as a back up. I was amazed to discover how much information is out there! How on Earth it doesn’t reach every single individual in this world is beyond me.'

Obamacare: A Deception



'Obamacare was formulated on the concept of health care as a commercial commodity and was cloaked in ideological slogans such as “shared responsibility,” “no free riders” and “ownership society.” These slogans dress the insurance industry’s raid on public resources in the cloak of a “free market” health care system.

You will learn how to purchase a subsidized plan at the Exchange, what will happen when income and family circumstances change during the year or from one year to the next, and other perils brought to you by Obamacare. It is one of the most important articles that will be posted on my website this year. Americans will be shocked to learn the extent to which they have been deceived. The legislation neither protects the patient nor are the plans affordable.'

Melanie’s Marvelous Measles: Is The Backlash Justified?

Melanie's Marvelous Measles: Is The Backlash Justified?

'There is a new children's book available that teaches children that they don't have to fear childhood illnesses. It is entitled "Melanie's Marvelous Measles" and can be purchased HERE

Mass hysteria has broken out among the provaccine with ideations of banning the book due to its perceived danger. See article HERE

So what are the arguments in favor of shedding the mass fear that has been ingrained since the 1960s when the vaccines became available, prior to which measles was an acceptable childhood illness? In the developed world, mortality was reduced over 98% before the vaccine came along and before antibiotics were available. In England and in the United States, the chance of dying from measles had dropped to 1-2% by the 1930s.'

Sourdough Pasta (with a Pasta Machine)

'A little while ago I came across a recipe for sourdough pasta on The Gingered Whisk (one of my Sourdough Surprises buddies), and as recipes for using up excess sourdough starter are always useful, I gave it a whirl. 

Like all things made with my particular sourdough starter, the sourdough taste in the pasta was not very assertive (I think I must have a very mild culture in my starter) but I get a kick out of using my starter wherever I can. For the pasta in this post, I doubled my original homemade pasta recipe and added about 1/4 cup excess starter to the dough. It made a really nice, silky, easy to work with dough that I happily ran through the pasta machine and then coiled into little nests under a tea towel.'

Dr. David Brownstein Reports Spontaneous Regression of Breast Cancer After Iodine

In his Iodine book, David Brownstein MD reports three cases of spontaneous regression of breast cancer after iodine supplementation.(1)(page 63)

The first patient, Joan a 63 year old English teacher, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1989, declined conventional treatment, and took 50 mg per day of Iodoral, (Iodine). Six weeks later, a PET scan (image below) showed, "all of the existing tumors were disintegrating".

Phony patients selling pricey drugs—Part 1



'It’s happened to anyone who’s attended an open-mic session at an FDA advisory committee hearing. A queue of  “patients” materializes out of nowhere to testify, often in tears, about the crucial need for approval of a drug the public has often not even heard of. Sometimes the drug has not been approved by the FDA at all, but often it’s just not been approved for the use the patients wants—so it’s not reimbursable.

“When insurers balk at reimbursing patients for new prescription medications, these groups typically swing into action, rallying sufferers to appear before public and consumer panels, contact lawmakers, and provide media outlets a human face to attach to a cause,” writes Melissa Healy of the Los Angeles Times of the artificial grassroots groups, sometimes called Astroturf.'

Police now accompanying Smart Meter installations: Two homeowners arrested for saying NO!


 Natural News Comment:

'I have 4 of them on my living room wall. Since they appeared, I've had extreme medical issues manifest themselves on me AND my previously healthy cat died of "unknown" heart failure just a few months after they were quietly installed. My heart is now malfunctioning as well. My blood pressure constantly and inexplicably spikes to dangerous levels. These problems did not exist before the smart meters came along.

They even interfere with my wireless router every time they emit their data. I can actually hear them buzzing on the other side of my wall, even though my ears constantly ring now.

I can't emphasize how dangerous I believe these devices are.'

Ann Lambert

'As if police in most major cities didn't have enough to do already, now they are being deployed as enforcers for the nanny state.

Cops in Naperville, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, have arrested two mothers after they attempted to block utility workers from installing so-called "smart meters" on their homes. The women, who were known to be vocal opponents of the wireless electric meters, apparently, were not the only smart meter opponents, however, because city officials told the Chicago Tribune they have ordered police to accompany utility crews as they install the meters on other homes where they were previously sent away.'

The Tamiflu Deception

Photo Credit:Constantine Report

'Tamiflu is chemotherapy that’s now given to babies. How can it be justified when it produces next-to-no benefit, produces and worsens symptoms it supposedly prevents, and even causes brain swelling and death? As David points out, its maker, Roche, hid Tamiflu’s adverse effects.'


'Drugs called Tamiflu are chemicals (ethyl (3R,4R,5S)-5-amino-4-acetamido-3-(pentan-3-yloxy)-cyclohex-1-ene-1-carboxylate) that are said to prevent flu or treat the flu. This CDC-approved and recommended-for-all chemotherapy has been shown to cause more vomiting and diarrhea.  Roche, the maker, has refused to release the data from studies on the effectiveness of Tamiflu to independent researchers for over three years.

Chemotherapy? Yes, according to the medical definition at dictionary.com (and others), chemotherapy is the treatment of disease by means of chemicals that have a specific toxic effect upon the disease-producing microorganisms or that selectively destroy cancerous tissue. So technically this is what Tamiflu therapy is.'

The subject of Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering (aka Chemtrails) and its impact on climate, health and life on this planet is undoubtedly one of the subjects avoided by the corporate controlled media in spite of being of utmost importance. But it is not only journalists who avoid discussing it and asking questions. The so called “science community” does the same. It is a taboo subject for our so called “representatives” in parliaments. The few who are trying to bring this subject to the attention of the public are attacked and ridiculed as “conspiracy theorists”. There is an eery silence that needs to be broken because this is an issue affecting all of us, the animals, the plants, the life on this planet in general.

Vegetarianism Can Reduce Your Risk of Death Over 30 Percent And Add 9 Years To Your Life


'According to two large studies, vegetarians are a third less likely to need hospital treatment for heart disease or die from it, and the diet could mean living nine additional years than you might consuming meat based diets according the the findings. 

The largest study of its kind found vegetarians have healthier hearts than those who eat meat or fish.
It is thought the benefits come from lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol levels through eating low-fat diets based on vegetables, whole grains and fruit.

In the first study of almost 45,000 volunteers included a high proportion of vegetarians -- 34 per cent -- and mostly women, which resulted in ‘clear findings’, said researchers.'

How to Protect Yourself and Your Children from the Health Hazards Associated with Medical and Agricultural Antibiotics


'Antibiotic-resistant disease is not the only danger associated with the misuse of these drugs. Excessive exposure to antibiotics also takes a heavy toll on your gastrointestinal health, which can predispose you to virtually any disease. Abnormal gut flora may actually be a major contributing factor to the rise in a wide variety of childhood diseases and ailments.

For example, recent research4 from Denmark shows that children whose mothers took antibiotics during their pregnancy were more likely to develop asthma, compared to those whose mother did not take antibiotics. Taking other risk factors into account, the researchers estimated that children exposed to antibiotics were 17 percent more likely to be hospitalized for asthma before the age of five.

Children who were already predisposed to asthma (due to their mother having the condition) were twice as likely to develop asthma if their mother used antibiotics during the third trimester, compared to those whose mother did not use antibiotics.'

Editors Note: Do not use agave nectar. It's not really a healthy sugar substitute.

'Cacao recipes are a great way to eat unprocessed, raw chocolate that still has all of its nutrients, rich flavors, and superfood properties still intact.

There is nothing like homemade chocolate recipes, especially when they are raw and alive with superfood goodness! I was introduced to raw chocolate many years ago and I began using it in desserts. The taste is much richer than cooked chocolate powders, sometimes the aroma reminds me of fine wine.

These cacao recipes are a few of our favorites that we make on special occasions. I personally like to save my raw chocolate experiences for times of celebration as oppose to consuming it on a regular basis.'

Uncertain Peril: Genetic engineering and the future of seeds



Intro by The Real Food Channel
ED NOTE: View all four and you'll see what I mean when I say LABELING GMOs IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

 
In this 4-part video series, we feature journalist, environmentalist, and author of Uncertain Peril: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Seeds, Claire Hope Cummings. She speaks out on behalf of the natural world, and for a new approach to solving the social environmental, and philosophical problems inherent in our present food system.


In agriculture, this mentality of scarcity takes many forms, including that of major seed companies restricting the uses (through utility patents) of their GMO seeds (non-GMO seeds can not be granted an utility patent); thus, by restricting supply, drive up their monetary value.

Formerly, what may have been freely available to reuse for future harvests, or for breeding research by farmers, or public institutions, may no longer be available for such purposes. For some, this is how capitalism, at its finest,operates.

But, we are not talking here about industrial widgets, we are talking about the control of seeds. Cummings, warns in her book, “whoever controls the future of seeds controls the future of life on earth.” Should any private entity be granted the right to control the future food supply?

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Dentistry




Minimally Invasive Dentistry A Valuable Aspect of Biological Dentistry

'Dr. Tim Rainey is a true pioneer in biological dentistry, and is a big proponent of and leader in what’s termed “minimally invasive dentistry.”

“Basically, I knew that the way that we were preparing teeth back then was dead wrong; that you couldn’t go in and justify destroying massive amounts of tooth structure,” Dr. Rainey says. “...We need to be much more conservative.”

After dental school, the training and dogma of which he rebelled against, he began investigating alternatives to the standard “drill and fill” dogma. After reading a hallmark article by a Japanese researcher back in 1977, he began to put everything together:

How tooth decay actually occurs, what the tooth looks like on the inside, how the decay looks like, and finally, what could be done to minimize the damage being done to the tooth while trying to restore it.'

'Nature's Antibiotic- Antibacterial  and Anti Fungal Effects
Morton Walker calls Olive Leaf extract, Nature's Antibiotic, because of its anti-bacterial and antifungal properties as demonstrated in a many studies (2-6).  Anti-mycoplasma activity was demonstrated in 2004 (1).


For example, Olive Leaf is a useful agent against chronic sinus infection as well as chronic toenail fungus.  Both may harbor underling fungal or bacterial organisms causing the infection. 
 
Antiviral Activity against influenza
Antiviral activity is another benefit.  For example, Olive leaf extract may be useful in cases of chronic Herpes infection, and Herpes Zoster as well (shingles).


For those wishing to prevent the common cold, the influenza virus, Olive Leaf extract might prove beneficial because of its anti-viral effect.Antiviral activity was demonstrated in a 2005 study.'

People Are Human-Bacteria Hybrid (We are not our bodies; We have bodies)

'Most of the cells in your body are not your own, nor are they even human. They are bacterial. From the invisible strands of fungi waiting to sprout between our toes, to the kilogram of bacterial matter in our guts, we are best viewed as walking "superorganisms," highly complex conglomerations of human cells, bacteria, fungi and viruses. 

That's the view of scientists at Imperial College London who published a paper in Nature Biotechnology Oct. 6 describing how these microbes interact with the body. Understanding the workings of the superorganism, they say, is crucial to the development of personalized medicine and health care in the future because individuals can have very different responses to drugs, depending on their microbial fauna.'

 She and her son fully enjoy the free benefits of the local library and park system. On weekends, Sophie’s folk band crowds into her trailer for practice sessions. Her son is already learning how to play the harmonica and fiddle. Sophie believes he should rely on his imagination for fun rather than on toys. When she does buy him gifts, they tend to be modest items such as crayons or socks, or ones that have long- term use such as simple tools or sheet music.

Marissa and Jack choose to live simply in their own way. They buy clothing and their children’s playthings from thrift stores, exchange only homemade gifts, and emphasize having fun outdoors. They carefully consider expenditures based on their ethics. Health is a priority, so they buy only organic foods and when they deem it necessary they pay for alternative medical treatments.'
