– Surgical anesthesia in young children linked to effects on IQ, brain structure (Science Daily, June 8, 2015):
…Children who received general anesthesia for surgery before age 4 had diminished language comprehension, lower IQ and decreased gray matter density in posterior regions of their brain, according to a new study in the journal Pediatrics.
– Major Medical Journal Retracts Numerous Scientific Papers After Fake Peer-Review Scandal (ZeroHedge, June 8, 2015):
A major publisher of scholarly medical and science articles has retracted 43 papers because of “fabricated” peer reviews amid signs of a broader fake peer review racket affecting many more publications. As The Washington Post reports, BioMed Central – a well-known publication of peer-reviewed journals – shows a partial list of the retracted articles suggests most of them were written by scholars at universities in China. The Committee on Publication Ethics stated, it “has become aware of systematic, inappropriate attempts to manipulate the peer review processes of several journals… that need to be retracted.” Continue reading »
– Yet another global warming catastrophe – The Sahara Desert is getting greener (Ice Age Now, June 3, 2015):
“You would think that increasing temperatures would make things worse in the deserts of the world,” says this article on hotair.com. But it appears that the Sahara desert may actually be shrinking.
“I’ve been studying the Sahara for 30 years and can definitely say that it’s getting greener,” says desert geologist Stefan Kröpelin, who has studied geological data for the eastern Sahara going back 6,000 years. Continue reading »
– Editors In Chief of World’s Most Prestigious Medical Journals: “Much of the Scientific Literature, Perhaps HALF, May Simply Be Untrue” … “It Is Simply No Longer Possible To Believe Much of the Clinical Research That Is Published” (Washington’s Blog, June 1, 2015):
Corruption Is Destroying Basic Science
Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine are the two most prestigious medical journals in the world.
It is therefore striking that their chief editors have both publicly written that corruption is undermining science.
Think this cannot possibly be a planned disaster?
Then take a look at this:
The company acknowledged Friday that it had completed the final cementing of the oil well and pipe just 20 hours before the blowout last week.
And don’t forget this fact (!!!):
“Just eight days before the Gulf blow-out, Halliburton also announced that it had agreed to buy Boots & Coots for $240.4 million. Who are Boots & Coots?
The world’s largest oil-spill clean-up company which also deals with oil and gas well fires and blowouts.
What an incredibly fortunate coincidence. What a slice of luck.”
– Study: Scientists Conclusively Link BP Oil Spill with Unprecedented Dolphin Deaths (Common Dreams, May 21, 2015):
Dolphins in the spill-affected areas ‘had some of the most severe lung lesions I have seen,’ says scientist
Scientists have for the first time made a conclusive link between the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and an unprecedented dolphin die-off along the Gulf’s northern coast.
Bottlenose dolphins in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama experienced an “unusual mortality event” beginning in February 2010 and continuing into 2014, according to the study, written by a team of 22 researchers, including scientists with the National Marine Fisheries Service, Audubon Nature Institute’s Aquarium of the Americas, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and a number of marine laboratories nationwide.

Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage Syndrome (VIBDS) is the phenomenon of impaired cognitive function caused by the brain-damaging toxic additives found in vaccines. It mirrors the well-documented cognitive impairment caused by chemotherapy, known across the medical establishment as Post-Chemotherapy Cognitive Impairment (PCCI).
The unmistakable evidence that vaccines cause permanent brain damage is found in the obviously suppressed cognition of those who take them. According to nearly every pro-vaccine parent who routinely takes vaccines, their vaccinated children — who are therefore immune to infectious disease — are endangered by unvaccinated children who they claim might be carrying infectious disease.

– ‘Home-brewed morphine’ made possible (BBC News, May 18, 2015):
Scientists have figured out how to brew morphine using the same kit used to make beer at home.
They have genetically modified yeast to perform the complicated chemistry needed to convert sugar to morphine.
– Psychiatric drugs do more harm than good, says expert (Guardian, May 12, 2015):
Psychiatric drugs do more harm than good and the use of most antidepressants and dementia drugs could be virtually stopped without causing harm, an expert on clinical trials argues in a leading medical journal.
The views expressed in a British Medical Journal debate by Peter Gøtzsche, professor and director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark, are strongly opposed by many experts in mental health. However, others say the debate around the use of psychiatric drugs is important and acknowledge that there has been overuse of antipsychotics to quieten aggressive patients with dementia.
Gøtzsche says more than half a million people over the age of 65 die as a result of the use of psychiatric drugs every year in the western world. “Their benefits would need to be colossal to justify this, but they are minimal,” he writes. Continue reading »

– NASA Has Released The Largest Picture Ever Taken And It Will Shake Up Your Universe (Scoop Whoop, Jan 16, 2015):
Have you seen the largest picture ever taken? For the record, it’s a mammoth 1.5 billion pixel image (69,536 x 22,230) and requires about 4.3 GB disk space. Oh, and it’ll take your breath away.
On January 5, NASA released an image of the Andromeda galaxy, our closest galactic neighbour, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The full image is made up of 411 Hubble images, takes you through a 100 million stars and travels over more than 40,000 light years. Well, a section of it anyway.
Prepare to feel extremely tiny and insignificant as you marvel at this fly-through video created by YouTuber daveachuk and make sure you stick around till the end. Seriously.
Well done, NASA. Our mind has been blown.
Commentary by Jim Stone:
Global warming scam imploding . . .
The following graphs are not from a single ground station, they are from a satellite relay station in Puerto Casado, where satellites relayed composite global data back to Earth (for the later portion of the graphs). The left of the graph has the average global temperature in degrees celsius.
This is what Al Dork tried to push:
And this is what really happened:
Both graphs quoted the same data. However, the top graph is a lie, which intentionally misrepresented the data. You were not delusional. It really has been cold.
– Top scientists start to examine fiddled global warming figures (Telegraph, April 25, 2015):
The Global Warming Policy Foundation has enlisted an international team of five distinguished scientists to carry out a full inquiry
Last month, we are told, the world enjoyed “its hottest March since records began in 1880”. This year, according to “US government scientists”, already bids to outrank 2014 as “the hottest ever”. The figures from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) were based, like all the other three official surface temperature records on which the world’s scientists and politicians rely, on data compiled from a network of weather stations by NOAA’s Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN).

– Monsanto Furious At World Health Organization For Claiming Weedkiller Causes Cancer (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):
Following Monsanto lobbyist comments recently that he’s “not stupid” enough to drink the weedkiller that he also proclaimed was safe enough that “you can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you;”Reuters reports that the maker of the world’s most widely used herbicide, Roundup, wants an international health organization to retract a report linking the chief ingredient in the weedkiller to cancer. The company said on Tuesday that a report, issued on Friday by the WHO, was biased: “The WHO has something to explain.” However, as one scientist noted, “there are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate…can promote cancer and tumor growth.”
Monsanto, maker of the world’s most widely used herbicide, Roundup, wants an international health organization to retract a report linking the chief ingredient in Roundup to cancer.
The company said on Tuesday that the report, issued on Friday by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), was biased and contradicts regulatory findings that the ingredient, glyphosate, is safe when used as labeled. Continue reading »
– Monsanto Knew of Glyphosate Cancer Link 35 Years Ago (Sustainable Pulse, April 10, 2015):
According to evidence unearthed from the archives of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in the United States, it has been established that Monsanto was fully aware of the potential of glyphosate to cause cancer in mammals as long ago as 1981.
Source: GM-Free Cymru Special Report, 8th April 2015
Recently the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) issued a statement in which glyphosate (the main component of Roundup herbicide) was classified as “probably carcinogenic” to humans and as “sufficiently demonstrated” for genotoxicity in animals (1). This announcement of a change to toxicity class 2A was given vast coverage in the global media, causing Monsanto to move immediately into damage limitation mode. The corporation demanded the retraction of the report, although it has not yet been published! Predictably, there was more fury from the industry-led Glyphosate Task Force (2). This Task Force also sponsored a “rebuttal” review article (3) from a team of writers with strong links with the biotechnology industry; but because of the clear bias demonstrated in this paper (which suggests that glyphosate has no carcinogenic potential in humans) it is best ignored until it has been carefully scrutinized by independent researchers (4).

– A 1,000 Mile Stretch Of The Pacific Ocean Has Heated Up Several Degrees And Scientists Don’t Know Why (Economic Collapse, April 13, 2015):
According to two University of Washington scientific research papers that were recently released, a 1,000 mile stretch of the Pacific Ocean has warmed up by several degrees, and nobody seems to know why this is happening. This giant “blob” of warm water was first observed in late 2013, and it is playing havoc with our climate. And since this giant “blob” first showed up, fish and other sea creatures have been dying in absolutely massive numbers. So could there be a connection? And what is going to happen if the Pacific Ocean continues to warm up? Could we potentially be facing the greatest holocaust of sea life in the Pacific that anyone has ever observed? If so, what would that mean for the food chain and for our food supply?
For a large portion of the Pacific Ocean to suddenly start significantly heating up without any known explanation is a really big deal. The following information about this new research comes from the University of Washington… Continue reading »
