People Could Make Smallpox from Scratch in a Lab, Scientists Warn

And what could possibly go wrong?

People Could Make Smallpox from Scratch in a Lab, Scientists Warn:

Scientists have re-created a relative of the smallpox virus in a lab, from scratch.

This virus, called the horsepox virus, is not harmful to humans, but the new findings suggest that it’s possible for people to make the deadly smallpox virus in a lab. That virus was eradicated from the world in 1980, according to the journal Science.

Re-creating the horsepox virus wasn’t a trivial feat, but it did not require extensive resources, either. The researchers ordered the DNA fragments they used to make the virus from a company that makes DNA pieces for researchers, with made-to-order sequences, and sends them through the mail. In total, the project cost $100,000 and took six months, Science reported. [The 9 Deadliest Viruses on Earth]

Germany: Infectious Diseases Spreading as Migrants Settle In

This has been predicted by many seers a looong time ago….

Germany: Infectious Diseases Spreading as Migrants Settle In:

  • A new report by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the federal government’s central institution for monitoring and preventing diseases, confirms an across-the-board increase in disease since 2015, when Germany took in an unprecedented number of migrants.
  • Some doctors say the actual number of cases of tuberculosis is far higher than the official figures suggest and have accused the RKI of downplaying the threat in an effort to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.
  • “Around 700,000 to 800,000 applications for asylum were submitted and 300,000 refugees have disappeared. Have they been checked? Do they come from the high-risk countries?” — Carsten Boos, orthopedic surgeon, interview with Focus magazine.

A failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary at a church in northern Germany to prevent him from being deported has potentially infected more than 50 German children with a highly contagious strain of tuberculosis.

Environmental Nightmare! Dozens Of Highly Toxic Substances Have Been Found In Tap Water All Over America

For all those who want safe & healthy drinking water:

Doctors And Experts With The Courage To Tell The Truth About Distilled Water

Environmental Nightmare! Dozens Of Highly Toxic Substances Have Been Found In Tap Water All Over America:

After reading this article, you will never look at tap water the same way again.  Most Americans have generally assumed that the water coming out of our taps is perfectly safe, but the Flint water crisis and other similar incidents are starting to help people to understand that there are some very dangerous substances in our water.  In particular, I am talking about things like arsenic, lead, atrazine, perchlorate and a whole host of pharmaceutical drugs.  According to an absolutely stunning NRDC report, close to 77 million Americans received their water from systems “that violated federal protections” in 2015.  And even if you get your water from a system that meets federal standards, that still does not mean that it is safe.

Let’s start by talking about arsenic.  Earlier today I came across an article that talked about how levels of arsenic in the water at some schools in the San Joaquin Valley “exceed the maximum federal safety levels by as much as three times”

Chemotherapy may spread cancer and trigger more aggressive tumours, warn scientists

Chemotherapy may spread cancer and trigger more aggressive tumours, warn scientists:

Chemotherapy could allow cancer to spread, and trigger more aggressive tumours, a new study suggests.

Researchers in the US studied the impact of drugs on patients with breast cancer and found medication increases the chance of cancer cells migrating to other parts of the body, where they are almost always lethal.

Around 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Britain every year and 11,000 will die from their illness.

Doctors recommend plant-based diets for better health

Doctors recommend plant-based diets for better health:

Forget popping pills: Physicians have begun recommending vegetables and fruits to their patients. From the American Cancer Society to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, medical groups and doctors alike are now touting plant-based diets as the pathway towards improved overall health, reported OrganicAuthority.com. And quite frankly, it’s about time.

The fact is that embracing a diet with a heavy emphasis on fruit and vegetable consumption has been linked to numerous health benefits. One of these is a healthier heart. The researchers behind a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that plant-based diets greatly reduced the risk of developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, as well as halted the progression of coronary heart disease. Additionally, the researchers noted that plant-based proteins were far more “heart-healthy” than animal proteins.

Beyond Meat “chemical” burger to start invading fast food restaurants across America

Beyond Meat “chemical” burger to start invading fast food restaurants across America:

Though the majority of the world population still has an insatiable hunger for meat, veganism has become the number one health and dietary trend. In 2016, Google Trends showed a 90 percent increase in “vegan” searches.

With a growing community deciding to shun all animal products, the food industry saw its chance to increase profits by introducing fake, artificial meat. Backed by a former global chief executive of McDonald’s and Tyson Foods, a controversial fake meat company, called Beyond Meat, is on a mission to take over the food world with lab-grown, fake meat products.

Beyond Meat is the firm who claims to produce Petri dish burgers that taste more like meat than real beef. Touted as the first plant-based burger that sizzles and bleeds, Beyond Meat sealed a deal with BurgerFi to sell the burger in eight of BurgerFi’s 101 locations — Malibu; New York City; Poughkeepsie, NY; Philadelphia; Coral Springs, Florida; Coral Gables, Florida; and two stores in Delray Beach, Florida, reported the Daily Mail Online.

Broccoli sprouts found to have significant impact in the treatment of type 2 diabetes

Broccoli sprouts found to have significant impact in the treatment of type 2 diabetes:

Broccoli tends to be one of those polarizing vegetables. Like spinach and mushrooms, people tend to either love or hate it with no in-between. Regardless of how you feel about its taste, however, you might want to start eating more of it if you have type 2 diabetes. That’s because recent research has discovered that eating broccoli or even drinking its juice could help people suffering from the condition.

The news comes at a time when diabetes rates are skyrocketing, affecting nearly 10 percent of Americans. More than 300 million people around the world are currently suffering from type 2 diabetes, which can lead to stroke, kidney failure, blindness, heart attack, and even limb amputation.

Popular heartburn drugs linked to higher death risk

Popular heartburn drugs linked to higher death risk:

Popular heartburn drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have been linked to a variety of health problems, including serious kidney damage, bone fractures and dementia. Now, a new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows that longtime use of the drugs also is associated with an increased risk of death.

Millions of U.S. residents take proton pump inhibitors which are widely prescribed to treat heartburn, ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems. The drugs also are available over the counter under brand names that include Prevacid, Prilosec and Nexium.

Stunning research finds that yoga and meditation literally “repair” your DNA to eliminate disease and depression

Stunning research finds that yoga and meditation literally “repair” your DNA to eliminate disease and depression:

Balancing activities like Tai Chi, yoga and meditation are touted for their ability to promote a sense of well-being and reduce stress, but is there more to it than meets the eye? While these exercises are known for being great ways to relax, new research has shown that their benefits extend far past the ephemeral. The relief mind-body interventions can offer isn’t just mental; in fact, these activities can actually bring about physical changes at the molecular level.

A recent study led by scientists from Coventry University and Radboud University have shown that mind-body interventions can turn back molecular reactions within your DNA that cause disease and depression.

‘I Was Wrong’: Judge Admits Jailing People for Pot ‘Haunts’ Him After Cannabis Saved His Life

‘I Was Wrong’: Judge Admits Jailing People for Pot ‘Haunts’ Him After Cannabis Saved His Life:

After being diagnosed with a terminal disease, a judge who “hated marijuana” now regrets all those prosecutions as cannabis saved his life.

Prior to this year, the state of Florida was regarded as one of the worst possible states to be caught in possession of cannabis. According to a 2009 analysis by former NORML Director Jon Gettman, no state in this country punished people more severely for minor marijuana offenses than Florida. However, thanks in part to a former Florida judge, all this is gradually changing.
