Nightmare stories of nurses giving potent drugs meant for one patient to another and surgeons removing the wrong body parts have dominated recent headlines about medical care. Lest you assume those cases are the exceptions, a new study by patient-safety researchers provides some context.
Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday, shows that “medical errors” in hospitals and other health-care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third-leading cause of death in the United States — claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer’s.

“Weather Channel founder, Bill Nye comes out claiming it’s a load of crap.
Just like Andrew Wakefield claimed mumps vaccine caused Autism, and Obama claims Putin’s military exercises within national boundaries is ‘aggressive’.
So now they trash him for telling the truth.”
Bill Nye is being branded a scientific fraud.
Watch a video of this report here:
Weather Channel founder John Coleman has slammed Bill Nye, ‘The Science Guy’, for being a scientific fraud:
“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,”
“As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the American Meteorological Society’s “Meteorologist of the Year” award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does.”
Bill Nye is an obstinate supporter of the idea of anthropogenic, or man-made, climate change (previously global warming), and has gone as far to suggest that anyone who denies that theory should be jailed.
When asked if ‘climate deniers’ should be in prison, Nye responded:

Nearly a third of antibiotics prescribed in doctors’ offices, emergency rooms and hospital-based clinics in the United States are not needed, according to the most in-depth study yet to examine the use and misuse of these life-saving drugs.
The finding, which has implications for antibiotics’ diminished efficacy, translates to about 47 million unnecessary prescriptions given out each year across the country to children and adults. Most of these are for conditions that don’t respond to antibiotics, such as colds, sore throats, bronchitis, flu and other viral illnesses. Continue reading »
For the first time, researchers have discovered three potentially habitable, Earth-like worlds orbiting an ultracool dwarf star 40 light-years away in another star system, according to a study published in the journal Nature.
The ultracool dwarf star, known as TRAPPIST-1, isn’t the kind of star scientists expected to be a hub for planets. It’s at the end of the range for what classifies as a star: half the temperature and a tenth the mass of the sun. TRAPPIST-1 is red, barely larger than Jupiter and too dim to be seen with the naked eye or even amateur telescopes from Earth. Continue reading »
Last week, Natural Newsexposed the utter and total takeover of the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia, which we have now learned is being orchestrated by a community strangely referring to themselves as “skeptical activists,” of which pro-vaccine troll and Karmanos breast cancer surgeon David Gorski is a member.
Trusted sources confirmed Gorski has administrative privileges on Wikipedia where he writes and edits content under the username “MastCell.” Under these administrative controls, Gorski and his team of skeptics are thought to have penned a defamatory review of Andrew Wakefield’s documentary VAXXED, a film instrumental in widening the discussion on vaccine safety.

Some years ago I was thinking about posting Gregg Braden’s lecture in full, but the upload disappeared and I forgot about it.
The video above is part of the following lecture:

If Bill Nye had his way, Weather Channel founder John Coleman would be heading for jail. Having spent more than 60 years as a meteorologist, Coleman penned a pointed rebuke to “the science guy’s” vehement faith in the ‘science’ of climate change, exclaiming that “science has taken a back seat at The UN… get politics out of the climate debate.”
On this Earth Day 2016, there is a great deal of frenzy about how our Earth is going to become uninhabitable, as the civilized activities of man allegedly trigger unstoppable global warming and climate change.
With the Obama administration set to commit the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement by signing our nation onto the document Friday, it is obvious that science has taken a back seat at the United Nations. Continue reading »
“In comparison with pre-acupuncture, the coherence amplitude values of EEG-delta (1-4 Hz) and y (31-47 Hz) waves were increased significantly after acupuncture of ST 36.”
“Acupuncture of Zusanli (ST 36) can increase the amplitude and synchronization of EEG-delta waves of different leads, and potentiate the functional interconnectivity of brain functional network.”View post
Zusanli (Stomach 36) is one of my favorite acupuncture points.

The Best Years in Life) Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which blood-sugar (glucose) levels are above normal—either the body doesn’t produce enough of the hormone insulin, which breaks down sugar in the blood, or it cannot utilize its own insulin properly. Diabetes can cause serious health complications including blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and even limb loss. The good news is that if you are one of the 20.8 million Americans struggling with diabetes (type 1 and type 2 combined) there are natural approaches to help avoid these life-threatening conditions.

Researchers from the University Of Manchester, United Kingdom, have concluded that cancer is a purely modern, man-made disease.
In the United Kingdom alone, Cancer claims more than 150,000 lives each year. Statistics also show that about one in three people in the United Kingdom is likely to get cancer.
The researchers spent a great deal of time studying mummies, fossils and classical literature before arriving at their conclusion. Continue reading »
Wim Hof discusses discusses the ability of our minds and bodies to influence our immune system.
Wim Hof is a Dutch world record holder, more commonly known as the Iceman, due to his unique ability to withstand extreme cold. He is best known for his twenty world records including the longest ice bath, staying immersed in ice for over 1 hour and 13 minutes. He describes his ability as being able to “turn his own bodies thermostat up” through the power of his mind. Some of his other impressive feats are climbing to 7.3km altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts. He’s also completed a full marathon above the polar circle in Finland wearing, yes you guessed it, nothing but shorts. Just through the power of his mind, he was able to run a marathon through the Namib desert without water. It’s been scientifically proven that Wim is able to directly influence his Autonomic Nervous and Immune System.
TEDxAmsterdam – Wim Hof is a Dutch world record holder, adventurer and daredevil, commonly nicknamed the Iceman for his ability to withstand extreme coldness. He holds nine world records including a world record for longest ice bath. Wim broke his previous world record by staying for 1 hour 13 minutes and 48 seconds immersed in ice at Guinness World Records 2008. Hof describes his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures as being able to turn his own thermostat up by using his brain.

MMR vaccine dangerous
Vaccine Empire wobbles on its foundations
by Jon Rappoport
April 7, 2016
The new film Vaxxed (trailer) highlights one whistleblower, researcher William Thompson, who publicly admitted he and his CDC colleagues lied, cheated, and committed gross fraud in exonerating the MMR vaccine and pretending it had no connection to autism.
Now we have another: Dr. Peter Fletcher.
The Daily Mail has the story (3/29/16): “Former [British] science chief: ‘MMR fears coming true’”. Continue reading »
In recent years laws against public smoking of traditional nicotine and tobacco cigarettes have become a lot stricter. We have been told time after time how bad cigarettes are for our health and how highly addictive they are. It has seemed that as of late a new hero had emerged as a healthier, less addictive and trendier alternative to traditional cigarette smoking – e-cigarettes.
E-cigarettes are basically battery-operated devices in the form of chambers that contain liquids (that may or may not contain nicotine and be flavoured) and when heated produce a vapour that is then smoked and inhaled. They have been on the market since 2004 in China. E-cigarettes have been touted as an amazing alternative to traditional smoking; since they don’t contain tobacco, their e-liquid cartridges contain way less nicotine and are therefore less addictive, and do not contain harmful carcinogenic elements like arsenic and tar – things that normal cigarettes are loaded with. So are e-cigarettes therefore a healthy alternative? Are they actually healthier than cigarettes?
This past February a new study by the University of North Carolina conducted by Iona Jaspers, professor of pediatrics and director of the curriculum in toxicology, is suggesting that e-cigarettes are not as safe and friendly as they appear. The study is suggesting that the use of e-cigarettes suppresses our immune systems. The information collected from the study was presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C. Continue reading »
An astronomer at Caltech says that new evidence has been discovered that indicates that there is a massive planet lurking somewhere on the outer edges of our solar system. It has been dubbed “Planet Nine”, but that is only because Pluto is not considered to be a planet anymore. If we included Pluto, this new astronomical body would be known as “Planet Ten” or “Planet X”, but scientists try very hard to avoid using the phrase “Planet X” because it is associated with so many “conspiracy theories”. Based on the new evidence that has emerged, it is believed that Planet Nine is approximately 20 times further away from the sun than Neptune is, and it is being projected that it would take somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 years for this planet to make one trip around the sun.
Perhaps due in part to my legal training, I have always been skeptical when it comes to things like this. Whenever anyone has tried to tell me about Planet X in the past, I have always wanted to see proof. And of course solid proof regarding Planet X has always seemed to be in short supply.

As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, apparently this truth is just now being “discovered” by researchers at Newcastle University. Researchers there say that a crash diet lasting only eight weeks can reverse the disease, and what’s more, even people who had diabetes for a decade watched it go away after sticking to the special two-month diet.

For those of you not up to speed on that story, here’s a brief summary from the post, Remembering Internet Prodigy and Activist Aaron Swartz (1986-2013): Your Life is an Inspiration:
Aaron ran afoul of the law due to his actions in the fall of 2010 when he downloaded millions of academic journal articles from the nonprofit online database JSTOR. While JSTOR could have pursued charges against Aaron for his activities, they decided against it. However, our Federal Government was not so kind. They decided to make an example of Aaron and charged him with multiple felonies. Charges that carried up to 35 years in prison and $1 million in fines. Aaron was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment this past Friday, in an apparent suicide.
Many contend, and I agree with them, that the U.S. government is responsible for driving Aaron to his death by going after him as if he was a mass murderer for an act of civil dissidence.
Interestingly enough, attempts to scare others from following in his footsteps have backfired spectacularly, as the actions of 27-year old Alexandra Elbakyan of Kazakhstan demonstrate.
As reported by the Washington Post:
Alexandra Elbakyan is a highbrow pirate in hiding.
The 27-year-old graduate student from Kazakhstan is operating a searchable online database of nearly 50 million stolen scholarly journal articles, shattering the $10 billion-per-year paywall of academic publishers. Continue reading »

“Lost for words…….”
Two Columbia University astronomers, Professor David Kipping and graduate student Alex Teachey, suggest humanity could use lasers to conceal the Earth from searches by advanced extraterrestrial civilizations.
Several prominent scientists, including Stephen Hawking, have cautioned against humanity broadcasting our presence to intelligent life on other planets. Other civilizations might try to find Earth-like planets using the same techniques we do, including looking for the dip in light when a planet moves directly in front of the star it orbits.

Everything is fake in our society today – or at least a great many things are. Our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fakery, fraud, facades, mirages, propaganda and brainwashing.
The good thing though is that once you awaken to the deception, you can use it as a tool for raising your consciousness. The idea that virtually everything is fake can be empowering rather than depressing.
Sure, we’ve all felt overwhelmed, sad, angry and impotent at times when we’ve seen just how easily our (mis)leaders can fool the masses with sophistry and empty rhetoric, but they’ve all been placed there to challenge us to wake up more quickly and fully, and reclaim our world.
Here’s my list of the top 40 pieces of fakery in our world today:
The largest-ever review of the effects of antidepressants on teens uncovered some incredibly disturbing findings, including that the drugs raise the risk of suicide in kids under 18. Now, this link is nothing new. We just reported in September that the selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drug Paxil was found to make teens suicidal.
In 2005, it was revealed that a Harvard psychiatrist and the pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly & Co. hid a secret 1988 internal memo showing that Lilly’s own controlled clinical trials of the blockbuster antidepressant drug Prozac had a significantly higher rate of suicide attempts, hostility, violence, and psychosis than four other commonly used antidepressants in the 1980’s and 1990’s.
The shocker is not that the medications can be more dangerous than depression itself, but the fact that drug companies are still lying about it. Continue reading »
Ständig steigender materieller Wohlstand ist das Glücksversprechen der westlichen Kultur. Dieses einzulösen, wird immer schwieriger. Dafür gibt es viele Gründe. Doch was geschieht, wenn dieses Glücksversprechen nicht mehr erfüllt wird? Solange die Bevölkerungen der früh industrialisierten Länder darauf ausgerichtet bleiben, ihren materiellen Wohlstand zu mehren, wird dessen Rückgang zu heftigen Reaktionen führen – bis hin zur Infragestellung der freiheitlich-demokratischen Ordnung. Solchen Reaktionen gilt es vorzubeugen oder sie zumindest zu dämpfen.

In this presentation, G. Edward Griffin, author of World without Cancer; The Story of Vitamin B17 and founder of the Cancer Cure Foundation, addresses the following topics: * Two opposed views of cancer. * Pancreatic enzymes and food factors in the control of cancer. * How the pharmaceutical cartel captured the medical profession. * How (and why) Sloan Kettering falsified research to discredit Laetrile. * Is there a conspiracy to withhold a control for cancer?
Last December we reported on a landmark study that made history at the annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society. The study found that a cannabis extract called cannabidiol (CBD) has dramatically positive effects for children with seizures.
Clinical trials are continuing to confirm that CBD is likely a far better treatment for epileptic seizures than any pharmaceutical product. This non-psychoactive ingredient of cannabis is proving to have many diverse medical benefits. Continue reading »

One incredible, natural product kills seemingly ALL kinds of cancer, and has been subjected to numerous scientific studies to prove its efficacy.
A non-toxic, fermented wheat germ has been shown to halt aberrations in cells – that which makes ‘good’ cells turn into cancerous ones. Every healthy cell has the potential to either block, interfere or promote enzymatic activity, which can then turn healthy cells into tumorous cells. Fermented wheat germ (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) made by a standardized, patented process, and named Avemar, specifically inhibits interference in enzymatic activity so that regular cellular respiration (including glucose metabolism) can occur among only healthy cells.
While chemo and radiation kill healthy cells along with cancerous ones, fermented wheat germ only targets cancerous cells. Avemar not only halts cancerous cell growth, but also boosts the immune system in general. Fermented wheat germ has been shown to halt ovarian cancer, skin cancers, prostate cancer, stomach cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and more. It has cytotoxic effects on almost every type of cancer cell. In fact, it had an 85% effective rate at reducing cancerous tumors in one study. Continue reading »
