Glyphosate: A Trajectory of Human Misery

'Glyphosate has likely caused more damage to human health than any other chemical ever produced. Indeed, it is probably a cause of the explosion in chronic diseases. Surely civilization cannot be maintained when the average person is irrevocably ill. This trajectory of human misery must come to an end.'

'Glyphosate was first introduced in 1974 and has become the world’s most dominant herbicide. It’s now generic, so there are many brands and formulations. As a result, it’s virtually ubiquitous, found nearly everywhere on earth. Further driving its use are genetically modified (GM) crops, which were first developed for the purpose of creating glyphosate-tolerant plants, usually known as Roundup Ready. These have resulted in ever-more blatant and free use, especially in the wake of glyphosate-resistant superweeds. Estimates put glyphosate-tolerant GM crops at 90% of all transgene crops.'

Is Mandatory Pediatric Chemo Institutionalized Child Abuse?

 Is Mandatory Pediatric Chemo Institutionalized Child Abuse?


'Mandatory chemotherapy for your child. The concept is horrific. But it is not just a concept. It has already happened and is still happening, which is why I am writing this article. 

We need to sound the alarm about this disturbing trend that, despite recent mainstream media references to a case of court-coerced chemotherapy, is still largely going unnoticed and/or unrecognized for what it really is: a human rights violation of the worst kind. 

Moreover, as it involves our children who can not rightly advocate for themselves, we need to speak up and act on their behalf.'

'Most adults suffer from sleep disorders at some point in their life. Sleeping problems are often the product of stress or depression. Other times, they are the result of something much simpler.You can fight insomnia by practicing good lifestyle habits. Getting into a good system will help you sleep soundly and be well rested to take on each day.

Make the room you sleep in a peaceful retreat.
If your bedroom is a place of distraction and chaos, it will be that much more difficult for you to fall asleep. Remove the alarm clock from sight — instead, put it under the bed or in a drawer. Adjust the room temperature for your comfort — for most people that’s between 65°F and 70°F — and make sure you have comfortable pillows and enough blankets. Hang blackout curtains or wear an eye mask if you are easily awakened by light.'

Your government is watching and tracking your decisions – even saying “No” to vaccines.


'The Centers for Disease Control has been quietly rolling out a nationwide program called the Immunization Information Systems (IIS), registering your vaccine information into a database. [1] This effort has been run in parallel with state vaccine registry implementations.
What is the intention of such programs?

My colleague Leslie Manookian, writer and director of the movie The Greater Good, wrote in a recent article, the “CDC has openly stated that vaccine registries are a tool to identify areas of ‘undervaccination’ so that they can be ‘addressed’ and brought into ‘compliance.’”

One such person, Vicky Stewart of Britain, chose such a path when she refused mainstream medical cancer treatments and instead began consuming powerful turmeric spice.'

How Monsanto went from selling aspirin to controlling our food supply

 http://img.scoop.it/E_l9T_cWCOFhUdHWzSbPiDl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBXEejxNn4ZJNZ2ss5Ku7Cxt

Monsanto controls our food, poisons our land, and influences all three branches of government.

'Forty percent of the crops grown in the United States contain their genes. They produce the world's top selling herbicide. Several of their factories are now toxic Superfund sites. They spend millions lobbying the government each year. It's time we take a closer look at who's controlling our food, poisoning our land, and influencing all three branches of government. To do that, the watchdog group Food and Water Watch recently published a corporate profile of Monsanto.

Patty Lovera, Food and Water Watch assistant director, says they decided to focus on Monsanto because they felt a need to "put together a piece where people can see all of the aspects of this company."'

'The peels of fruits hold some of the most incredible nutrients in the world. There are dozens of uses, both medicinal and practical, for orange and banana peels that are unknown to most. Next time you think about throwing away one of these peels, you may want to have this information handy.

ORANGE PEELS
 

Always try and minimize your pesticide levels by selecting organic oranges, but since they're very low in the pesticides, it's not essential and a good cleaning with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar in 1 cup of water will remove almost any pesticide remaining within the outer peel.'

75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves

'Doctors used to think that if they drained a sick person's blood it would purge the "evil" infection or disease right out of the body, but all that did was make the ill person much weaker, unable to fight off whatever was invading their body, and the patient was then highly likely to lose the battle for life, and in less time.

Research using polls and questionnaires continue to show that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be "life extending," yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer.'

7 Ways To Prevent and Even Reverse Heart Disease With Nutrition


'Considering that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the developed world, anything that can prevent cardiac mortality, or slow or even reverse the cardiovascular disease process, should be of great interest to the general public.

Sadly, millions of folks are unaware of the extensive body of biomedical literature that exists supporting the use of natural compounds for preventing and even reversing heart disease.

Instead, they spend billions buying highly toxic cholesterol-lowering pharmaceuticals with known cardiotoxicity, among 300 other proven side effects, simply because their doctor told them to do so.

How One Simple Breathing Technique Can Prolong Your Life: Nadi Shodhana

Conversely, animals like dogs and squirrels live short lives because their hearts beat faster and their resting heart rates are often higher.'

School Bans Girl for Not Getting Chickenpox Vaccine Despite Doctors Order



'A story that should serve as a wakeup call to all American parents is currently making headline news: A Staten Island kindergartner has been barred from attending school because she hasn’t been vaccinated against chickenpox—even though her pediatrician refuses to vaccinate her on grounds that it may endanger the health of her baby sister.

Chickenpox is caused by the varicella zoster virus, which is a member of the herpes virus family and is associated with herpes zoster (shingles). While highly contagious, it typically produces a mild disease characterized by small round lesions on your skin that cause intense itching that lasts for two to three weeks. Recovery leaves a child with long-lasting immunity.

The case of Frankie Wagner is a disturbing reminder of how far the US government is going in its illogical pursuit of maximizing vaccine adherence.'

'Cancer is the disease Americans fear most,1 and understandably so since it’s responsible for nearly one out of every four deaths in the US.2 Adding to its stigma, cancer diagnosis and treatment are the moneymakers in this industry – and also the focus of most government-funded cancer campaigns.

Comparatively little is done in the way of prevention education, leaving many feeling powerless against this potentially deadly disease – as though all you can do is cross your fingers and hope you don’t become one of the quickly growing cancer statistics. What a relief it should be to learn that prevention strategies not only exist, but also are remarkably effective at lowering your risk of most types of cancer.'

The amount of solar energy reaching the Earth's surface has been gradually falling partly due to artificial climate modification and geoengineering initiatives--a misguided attempt to cool the planet by reflecting the sun. We have now lost 20 percent of the sun's rays due to the consequences--global dimming, which is affecting our health and future.'

'When we use a word like pure we have to stop, pause and ponder. In The Science of the Pure, I wrote about the very specific effect something pure has on the impure. One merges into the other, the pure becomes less pure and the impure becomes slightly more pure.

This principle can be applied in medicine. For instance if we pass pure substances through the body, substances like pure clay, activated charcoal, or even diatomaceous earth, these substances will pull to them impurities, they will clean and heal because they are so pure. All of these substances have fantastic abilities to absorb the impure.

'Researchers from the Pharmacy and Biochemistry Departments at Croatia's University of Zagreb have confirmed that American Ginseng can improve and reverse type 2 diabetes.

The researchers reviewed a plethora of clinical studies done with American Ginseng - Panax quinquefolius – that have shown that it decreases glycemic response and increases insulin levels following meals. Because it assists insulin in escorting glucose through the cell membranes, providing energy to the cells and clearing the blood of glucose – this traditional herb used for thousands of years effectively improves and even reverses the condition of type 2 diabetes.'

History and Science Show Vaccines Do Not Prevent Disease

 http://planetofchange.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/vaccines-kill.jpg

'Health Impact News Editor Comments: In the vaccine debate currently raging in modern society, seldom, if ever, is the basic presupposition that vaccines prevent diseases ever questioned. It is assumed by the government and the medical system that this presupposition is a scientific fact. 

Without this presupposed “fact”, the justification to force people to receive vaccinations completely falls apart. The acceptance of sacrificing certain children and others due to vaccine harm for “the greater good” also loses its justification, if vaccines actually do not prevent disease. So it is easy to see why those who profit from vaccines, which includes both the manufacturer and the U.S. government, do not want to debate this issue.'

Are You Getting Enough Iodine in Your Diet From Real Food?

'Iodine is an important nutrient no one should be without. Our soil used to contain adequate amounts of iodine and other important minerals, but commercial farming methods have depleted our once fertile soils.

Iodine deficiency is a common problem in the U.S., even though refined table salt has iodine added to it. This is because fortified, white table salt is highly refined and contains mostly sodium chloride with most of the trace minerals removed and synthetic iodine added back in, and our bodies have a difficult time absorbing it. Although a lot of real food folks are switching to sea salt, which does contain a great deal of trace minerals we are missing in our diets, there isn’t enough iodine in sea salt to provide what humans need.'
