'Researchers from Northwestern University's School of Medicine have determined that the use of certain pesticides over a lifetime produces a shortening of chromosome telomeres.

The researchers tested 1,234 men as part of a study of 57,310 licensed pesticide contractors – from the Agricultural Health Study, orchestrated by the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. 

This particular study was conducted in partnership with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center.'


18 Spices Scientifically Proven To Prevent and Treat Cancer

'Believe it or not, but when the opposition in question is an adamant disease like cancer, everything you need to prevent or treat it is right inside your spice cabinet.

Volunteering May Be Good for the Heart in More Than One Way

'Volunteering is a simple way to help others, but it’s also a powerful way to help yourself.

Beyond the good feelings you’ll get from donating your time, and the potential to develop new, meaningful relationships with people in your community, volunteering has a significant impact on your physical health, including a boost to your heart health.'


Counterfeit Food More Widespread Than Suspected

'GREAT DALBY, England — Invisible from the roadway, hidden deep in the lush English countryside, Moscow Farm is an unlikely base for an international organized crime gang churning out a dangerous brew of fake vodka.

But a quarter of a mile off a one-lane road here, tens of thousands of liters of counterfeit spirits were distilled, pumped into genuine vodka bottles, with near-perfect counterfeit labels and duty stamps, and sold in corner shops across Britain. The fake Glen’s vodka looked real. But analysis revealed that it was spiked with bleach to lighten its color, and contained high levels of methanol, which in large doses can cause blindness.' 


Vaccines Cause Shaken Baby Syndrome Symptoms

'Shaken Baby Syndrome cannot possibly cause the damage claimed without also producing other harm, like obvious neck and back injuries. It has never been documented to exist. Yet, on the basis of nothing more than the claims of self-styled medical ‘experts’, parents are sent to prison for an injury that’s been proven to be caused by vaccines.'


Ginger root is a miracle cure for prostate cancer

'Prostate cancer is one of the most over-treated cancers out there. By 50 years of age, about 40 percent of all men already have prostate cancer and likely will never know it. 

But it will not kill them either - unless they are screened for it and then treated with Big Pharma protocols. Then things take an ugly turn as the benign and slow-growing cancer turns into the killer kind. The numbers for prostate cancer doubles to 80 percent of all men by the age of 80 years old. If you are in the business of selling cancer treatments, this is a financial boon and a cash-cow.'

Diabetes—A Curable Disease?

'My revised edition of There Is A Cure for Diabetes is based on the results of the last 120 type-1 and type-2 diabetics participating in my Diabetes Recovery Program at the Tree of Life Center US. The results of the 120 diabetics have provided me with much deeper insight into the syndrome I now call the “Chronic Diabetes Degenerative Syndrome.”

Although allopathic teaching has consistently labeled type-1 and type-2 diabetes as incurable, my experience clearly demonstrates that type-2 diabetes is a curable disease, (and now even type-1). Of these 120 people, within 21 days, 61% of those with type-2 non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) and 24% of those with type-2 insulin dependent (IDDM) were healed. I define “healed” as a fasting blood sugar of less than 100 and off all medications.

More interestingly, 31.4% of type-1 diabetics came off all their insulin during the 21 days, and approximately 21% of type-1 diabetics were off all medications and had a fasting blood sugar under 100, meaning they were healed.' 


The Growing Epidemic of Thyroid Disease and What To Do About It

'It is estimated that over 200 million people globally (about 35 million people in North America) suffer from at least one of the many forms of thyroid disease. In fact, thyroid problems are increasing so much in frequency that scientists are calling it an epidemic. The incidence of thyroid illness occurs about seven times more frequently in women than men, and it is thought that at least 50% of the cases are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.'


Sexual Medicine and the Rape of Humanity

'Sex is at the center of more things than we would like to admit and there are those institutions which would have us remain as ignorant as possible about our sexualities. “The idea that we are vital, sexual creatures is still looked at in some cases with disgust or in other cases a bit of embarrassment,” says Dr. Joy Davidson, a New York psychologist and sex therapist.

For doctors or anyone else the positive attributes of healthy sexuality can only be understood in the context of the stupefying darkness surrounding human sexuality. Doctors and psychologists are the ones who have to deal with the aftereffects of sexual violence so they better understand what we are dealing with.'


Americans Torch 40 TONS of GMO Crops – News Blackout

'Though the controlled corporate media apparatus is suppressing the story, 40 tons of GMO crops were torched, prompting an FBI investigation. 

There has been a COMPLETE MEDIA BLACKOUT, outside of local circles has dared to mention it, perhaps because government fears that if the public learns that other people are getting fighting mad (literally), they might join in, and become an actual revolution.

It was only reported locally live on KXL Radio and echoed by the Oregonian, where the ONLY web mention exists, hard to find because the headline wording is carefully avoids the most likely keywords for a search.'


10 Natural Substances That May Help Cure Type 1 Diabetes

10 Natural Substances That May Help Cure Type 1 Diabetes

'Could the long-sought after cure for type 1 diabetes be as close as your kitchen cupboard? An accumulating body of scientific research appears to point in exactly that direction.

One so-called 'incurable disease' that afflicts millions of people around the world is type 1 diabetes. Unlike type 2 diabetes, where the body becomes resistant to its own insulin, type 1 is characterized by the inability of the body to produce enough insulin, as the beta cells within the pancreas which are responsible for the production of insulin (and the proinsulin from which it is made) are either destroyed or seriously impaired.'


Ways to Cleanse the Body from Chemtrails, GMOS, Flouridated Water, and other Environmental Toxins

'From the chemtrails being sprayed over our neighborhoods to the poisons killing our bees and making our food toxic ‘medicine’ we need a way to purge the deadly elixirs of a greedy government, owned and run by corporate interests.

 For the sake of keeping your attention, I won’t go on ad nauseam about fluoridated wateroil spills, and contaminated air and water due to fracking and mining.

As research since the early 1900s suggests, our bodies simply cannot handle the level of toxicity in our environment without some help, though it was originally designed to cure itself from every conceivable toxin - from heavy metals to the common cold.'

'Palm oil has been sold to the world as yet another increasingly sustainable and healthy alternative to other vegetable oils. It is now the most widely produced edible vegetable oil globally, passing soybean oil eight years ago. 

Following the repetitive formula which comes out
 of the food industry decade after decade--any time the next big economical, versatile and immensely popular of edible oils come along to be integrated into thousands of food products, inevitably we find out that they're not so great for our health or the environment. Palm oil is no exception from this formula and here's why you need to get this oil out of your diet for good.'


Sungazing: Discover the bright rewards of this ancient practice


'Reserved for the elite priests and shamans of ancient sun worshiping civilizations, sungazing was considered a powerful tool for spiritual and physical transformation. Today, the practice has been revived and embraced once again - gaining popularity with those who seek heightened vibrancy and joyful states of being. Proponents also believe sungazing reduces hunger and helps to maintain a slim body.'


Putting the Culture Back in Agriculture: Reviving Native Food and Farming Traditions

'Today, Native communities throughout the US are reclaiming and reviving land, water, seeds and traditional food and farming practices, thereby putting the culture back in agriculture and agriculture back in local hands.

“At one point ‘agriculture’ was about the culture of food. Losing that culture, in favor of an American cultural monocrop, joined with an agricultural monocrop, puts us in a perilous state…” says food and Native activist Winona LaDuke.'


A Natural Approach To Preventing Arthritis

'Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, occurs to some degree in all of us as we age. As we go through life, our joints accumulate evidence of wear; on x-ray, this evidence includes decreased joint space, thickening of bones where they meet to form a joint, and even bone spurs. 

Show me an x-ray of anyone who is 35 years or older and chances are really good that I can show you multiple signs of some stage of osteoarthritis - call this an inevitable consequence of living in a world governed by gravity. 

The goal for all of us should be to minimize wear and tear, thereby decreasing our risk of developing painful stages of osteoarthritis. Here are some thoughts on how to accomplish this:'

'The ideal environment for parasites to live and grow in our bodies is promoted by a diet that includes refined carbohydrates (sugar), raw fish (sushi), undercooked meat (specifically pork) and even inadequately washed fruit and vegetables.

Parasites can cause health problems such as bloating, cramps, diarrhea, allergies, anal itching, anemia, low immune system, mucus or blood in stools and even affect your mood with anxiety or depression. Picking them up is easier than you think: restaurants with poor hygiene, holidays abroad with impure water, pets and animals.'


Smart Pills Snitch You Out to Your Doctor

'Proteus Biomedical Inc., a California based company, has developed a smart pill also known as the Helius system, that has the capability of notifying your physician once a prescription drug has been ingested. 

The drug comes with a tiny digestible silicon-based chip that contains trace amounts of magnesium and copper. Once digested, the metals mix with your stomach acids, creating an electrical charge that’s sent to an external skin patch worn by the patient. This skin patch transmits the information to your iPhone or computer, and is then sent directly to your doctor.'


Sitting Kills, Moving Heals

'If you’re like most people, myself included, you probably spend a large portion of each day in a seated position. It’s hard to avoid these days, as computer work predominates, and most also spend many hours each week driving to and from work.

Mounting research now suggests that sitting in and of itself is an independent risk factor for poor health and premature death—even if you exercise regularly.

Dr. Joan Vernikos, former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division and author of Sitting Kills, Moving Heals, presents a simple yet powerful scientific explanation for why sitting has such a dramatic impact on your health, and how you can simply and easily counteract the ill effects of sitting.'


Bill Gates and The WHO Team Up To Counter Negative Stigma Attached To Vaccines With Public Surveillance System

'It should be a very encouraging and a positive sign for anti-vaccine advocates when international funding agencies start to invest in surveillance projects focused on monitoring and detection of public concerns around vaccines. It means they're scared and they should be. The world is sharply dividing on the issue and it appears those on the fence are rapidly joining one side--and it's not the side the vaccinators would have hoped for.'

'I now have the official CDC flu-death statistics for the year 2010.

They were provided to me by Martin Maloney, who, some years ago, contacted me to show how the CDC was lying all the way along the line about numbers of flu deaths. Many thanks, Martin, for your good work. 

2010 is apparently the most recent year for which the CDC has issued a final report. It was released on May 13 of this year.

The report comes through a sub-agency of the CDC, the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS).'


Are You Using These Simple Lifestyle Strategies to Decrease Your Stroke Risk?
'According to the National Stroke Association,1 stroke is the number one cause of long-term disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. 

The most common type of stroke is called "ischemic stroke," which results from an obstruction in a blood vessel supplying blood to your brain. Once you suffer a stroke, the damage, should you survive it, can be absolutely devastating.

Thankfully, up to 80 percent of strokes are preventable. According to researchers,2 lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, body mass index, blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and smoking can have a direct bearing on your individual risk.'

Your Frying Pan Could Increase Your Risk of Osteoarthritis—and Other Health Problems

'Do you cook your meals in non-stick pans? Use microwave popcorn bags? Walk on stain-resistant carpet?

If so, you may be increasing your risk of osteoarthritis, according to a recent study. That’s because all these items are likely to have perfluorinated compounds, or “PFCs,” which are tied to health effects and potential hormonal disruption.'

'The Grain-Free Stuffed “Shells” recipe I shared with y’all was elaborate and delicious and something I would make over and over again as a special dish for our family or company.

But I’m gonna be real with you for a minute. I live off-grid in a 300 square foot home. I have three small children whom we homeschool. There are gardens and over 40 chickens. I work as a freelance writer so that we can build this homestead from scratch, without debt. I love to cook, but right now I try to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible, while still creating nourishing food for our family.

So, I make simple meals.'


The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can 'Sleep At Night': Gardasil and Cervarix Don't Work, Are Dangerous, and Weren't Tested

'Dr. Diane Harper was the lead researcher in the development of the human papilloma virus vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. She is the latest to come forward and question the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines. She made the surprising announcement at the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination, which took place in Reston, Virginia on Oct. 2nd through 4th, 2009.

Her speech was supposed to promote the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, but she instead turned on her corporate bosses in a very public way. When questioned about the presentation, audience members remarked that they came away feeling that the vaccines should not be used.'


20 Signs That The Pharmaceutical Companies Are Running A 280 Billion Dollar Money Making Scam

'If you could get 70 percent of Americans addicted to your drugs and rake in $280 billion a year in the process, would you do it? If you could come up with a “pill for every problem” and charge Americans twice as much for those pills as people in other countries pay, would you do it? If you could make more money than you ever dreamed possible by turning the American people into the most doped up people in the history of the planet, would you do it?'


Health Benefits of Honey and Cinnamon

'Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey. Make sure your honey is untreated and unprocessed and not heated. This will have the greatest benefit. 

Caution - honey is a form of sugar so too much honey of any kind is not good for the body. But a little bit will help some of the following conditions. And the Cinnamon should be organic. Chinese medicine says it is warming and nourishing for the Kidneys.

Cinnamon and honey each have properties with the potential to improve your health.'

'Just two months of drinking cranberry juice is associated with a regulation of insulin sensitivity and energy, and a decrease in homocysteine, an amino acid linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), say researchers.

Previous research has also shown that cranberry juice helped relax blood vessels clogged with high blood cholesterol and narrowed by atherosclerosis, according to a study by researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine.'


Smoothies, from the 60s to Today: Tips to Make Them Super Healthy

Photo Credit:Renegade Health

'Being from California, smoothies were “in” back in the 60s and early 70s, but only among health nuts, as we were called then. Most of us “nuts” were very young, radical in our dress and political beliefs, extreme vegetarians, meditators and surfers, and hippies.


But not all health-minded Californians were in their twenties. Many of the original health food pioneers—like Paul Bragg and his daughter Patricia Bragg, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Gerald Benesh, Jack Lalanne, and Edmund Szekely of Essene Gospel fame and founder of Rancho La Puerta health spa and retreat—were still around. Their followers owned or worked in the first health food stores and juice shops. Vegetarian restaurants popped up, and in our kitchens we made and sold fresh almond milk, granola and health bars.'
