A 2013 lawsuit prompted the FDA to issue black box warnings, but physicians are still prescribing these deadly drugs. Two compounds will be mentioned often in this report: fluoroquinolone and quinolone. Fluoroquinolone is a quinolone antibiotic with an added fluoride atom.

No Evidence for Fluoridated Water to Result in Less Cavities

Two-thirds of Americans drink tap water that has added fluoride. Unlike other chemicals added to water, which are intended to treat the water itself, fluoride is intended to treat the people who drink the water, whether they want the treatment or not.

As the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) puts it, “Fluoridating water supplies can thus fairly be described as a form of mass medication, which is why most European countries have rejected the practice.” [1]
In the U.S., many people assume the fluoride in drinking water is beneficial for their teeth, an assumption that has been widely spread by public health agencies.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has partnered with the American Dental Association (ADA) in saying fluoridation is “nature’s way to prevent tooth decay” [2] — a statement that is both misleading and inaccurate.

What is Apoptosis?

According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) a multicellular organism’s (Human) cells are members of a highly structured community. The quantity of cells in the community is regulated efficiently by governing the rate of cell mitosis as well as controlling the rate of cell death.

When a cell is no longer needed, an intracellular death program is initiated that causes a cell to essentially commit suicide. This process is known as programmed cell death, medically and scientifically known as apoptosis which is drawn from a Greek word meaning “falling off.”

'Humulus lupulus (hops) are best known for their role in beer, however, the flowers of the plant are also being investigated for their health benefits — in particular, those which affect women.

In 1999, a potent phytoestrogen, 8-prenylnaringenin, whose activity was stronger than that of other phytoestrogens, was found in Humulus lupulus.1

Phytoestrogens found in plants can have estrogenic or antiestrogenic effects due to their ability to occupy estrogen receptor sites, thereby blocking estrogen made in the body. This may enable some plant compounds to provide some of the benefits of estrogen while blocking some of their adverse effects.'

The Importance of CoQ10 for Heart Health and Much More


Image result for coq10 health


In an earlier Health Impact News article, it was pointed out how statin drugs cut back on the body’s ability to produce an important co-enzyme called CoQ10. One of CoQ10’s important health features, among others, is that it’s vital for good heart health.
Ironically, statin drugs prescribed for protecting cardiovascular health hamper this heart health co-enzyme production, and worse, it affects other areas of health. This could explain the other adverse side effects of statin drugs, such as fatigue, lowered immunity, and aching joints, muscles, and tendons. (Source)
Co-enzyme Q 10 (CoQ10) was identified from its function, not its structure. It actually involves a complex cycle that affects electron transfer in tissue cells, most importantly brain, heart, and liver organ tissues, and promotes intracellular energy production throughout the body.

'Have you heard about homeopathic vaccines called nosodes? There’s a lot of talk about this alternative to traditional vaccinations in the holistic community and beyond.

'The very first vaccine was for smallpox. It turned out to be a disaster, increasing the death rates and incidence of smallpox, while causing numerous serious side effects.

Likewise, the polio vaccine is widely credited for eliminating polio in this country, while in reality, the polio vaccine caused an increase in polio rates, which was hidden from the public by a redefinition of the polio disease. [1]

The number of vaccines, with the health damage and deaths they cause, continues to grow.

Many of those opposed to vaccines are not opposed to the idea of preventing disease through vaccination, but want vaccines that are both safe and effective. The pharmaceutical companies have been unable to provide a single safe and effective vaccine.

Few people are aware of the fact that safe vaccines do exist. Homeopathic vaccinations have been proven to be safe, effective and inexpensive.'
