The test given to high school students is rife with factual errors and gross omissions, such as claiming that polio infection rates “dropped by 99% when vaccine was introduced in 1955.” Children are not taught that polio vaccines cause paralysis and that the official rates of polio dropped largely because government officials altered the definition of “polio” to create the illusion that the vaccines were working better than they actually were.

According to a study published by the International Journal of Electrochemical Science, you may want to think twice before wrapping your food in aluminum foil to cook it — because some of that foil will leach into your meal.
“Aluminum foil used in cooking provides an easy channel for the metal to enter the human body,” concludes the study, which examined the effect foil has on a variety of different foods when used to prepare them. Continue reading »
Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Cannabis has been at the center of one of the most exciting—and underreported—developments in modern science. Research on marijuana’s effects led directly to the discovery of a hitherto unknown biochemical communication system in the human body, the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.
The discovery of receptors in the brain that respond pharmacologically to cannabis—and the subsequent identification of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in our own bodies that bind to these receptors—has significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health, and disease.

A traditional food plant that has been used for thousands of years to improve health and well-being, is finally being validated by science. The results? It may be far superior to a chemotherapy agent with deadly side effects and dubious efficacy.
Increasingly, an awareness of the power of commonly used traditional plants to prevent and even treat cancer is coming to the forefront. In fact, GreenMedInfo.com now houses one of the largest open access databases on the topic, with over 3,000 studies on the value of over 650 natural substances as chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic agents. You can take a look here. Continue reading »
New data revealed today shows bees can be exposed to more pesticides from contaminated wildflowers than from crops on farms. The research, discussed at a scientific briefing in London on 28 April 2016 organised by the Soil Association, showed a staggering 97% of the neonicotinoids brought back to honeybee hives in pollen could come from wildflowers – not oilseed rape. (1)
The briefing looked at the latest scientific research and its implications for the environment and the future use of neonicotinoid pesticides in the UK. The panel included three leading experts on the impacts of neonicotinoid pesticides on our pollinators – Professor Dave Goulson, Dr Lynn Dicks and Dr Penelope Whitehorn. Peter Campbell from Syngenta responded to the presentations from the three scientists. Continue reading »
An oligopoly takes shape to corner the human food supply.
The hunter, it seems, has become the hunted. After wresting control of roughly a quarter of the global seeds market by acquiring a massive portfolio of seed companies, including Agroceres, Asgrow, Cristiani Burkard, Dekalb, Delta & Pine and the seeds division of Cargill North America, Monsanto now suddenly finds itself on the menu of two very powerful, much bigger rivals.
On Thursday, it was reported that Germany’s two chemical-industry titans Bayer and BASF, both of which have a market capitalization more than double Monsanto’s, are mulling a takeover bid. Continue reading »
“Brahmi” (Bacopa monnieri) benefits the brain by balancing levels of neurotransmitters and stress hormones, thus improving cognitive and mental health. The many ways that bacopa benefits cognitive and mental health are impressive. Bacopa is a foundational herbal remedy in the ancient healing traditions of both China and India. It has been highly prized as a brain tonic for reducing stress and anxiety, boosting mental energy and clarity, and protecting the brain from aging. It is very easy to grow.

NaturalNews reports; One of the world’s most lucrative industries, spending on cancer drugs reached an all-time high last year, as it was valued at more than $100 billion. Spending on cancer drugs increased 6.5 percent annually over the past five years and is expected to continue growing at a rate of 8 percent each year through 2018, according to figures provided by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.
That spending is highly concentrated, as the US and five of Europe’s largest countries account for nearly two-thirds of the entire market.
This means that billions and billions of dollars are secured by Americans being diagnosed with cancer. Continue reading »
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” but Monsanto has promoted Roundup as “safe enough to drink,” the farmers say in their federal lawsuit. Continue reading »
John Sanders worked in the orange and grapefruit groves in Redlands, California, for more than 30 years. First as a ranch hand, then as a farm worker, he was responsible for keeping the weeds around the citrus trees in check. Roundup, the Monsanto weed killer, was his weapon of choice, and he sprayed it on the plants from a hand-held atomizer year-round.
Frank Tanner, who owned a landscaping business, is also a Californian and former Roundup user. Tanner relied on the herbicide starting in 1974, and between 2000 and 2006 sprayed between 50 and 70 gallons of it a year, sometimes from a backpack, other times from a 200-gallon drum that he rolled on a cart next to him.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Despite Monsanto’s claim that its Roundup weed-killer is “safe enough to drink,” four Nebraska farmers say the widely used herbicide gave them non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans” but Monsanto has promoted Roundup as “safe enough to drink,” the farmers say in their federal lawsuit.
“Roundup is used by Nebraskans raising everything from grain to grass and tulips to trees. Nothing on the label alerts users to health risks,” their attorney David Domina said in an interview. “Nebraskans deserve the benefit of the (World Health Organization) research, and protection against unknown exposure.” Continue reading »
We all love watermelon, especially in the hot summer days, right? We all love this refreshing, delicious and cleansing fruit – but, nobody likes the watermelon seeds. We all throw them away. The watermelon seeds are usually considered as a trash, and just a few people likes to eat them. But, when I tell you that these seeds are loaded with health benefits, I don’t think that you will throw them again. First, you should know that the watermelon seeds are extremely effective and beneficial for improving the digestive system, and that’s about it! It’s because the watermelon seeds are just going through the digestive tract and they are improving the digestion process, which means that the other health benefits of the watermelon seeds are unused.

Ask any American about what the US government spends our money on, and I guarantee you they will all think of at least one program or department that should be eliminated. Maybe they don’t think it’s important, or they object to it on moral grounds, or they just think that the private sector could do the same job more efficiently. But sometimes, the government pays for services that no one in their right mind would want, regardless of political affiliation or beliefs.
Dr. H. Gilbert Welch is the author of Less Medicine More Health, one of the most fascinating and important books on medicine I’ve read all year.
The book is extraordinary, and it’s authored by a doctor who is thoughtful and systematic in his analysis of seven false assumptions in modern medicine that enrich drug companies, hospitals and surgeons while actually harming the public.
Below, I’m citing a short section from the book that explains how the cancer industry uses psychological terror to scare women and men into unnecessary cancer treatments. Continue reading »
An estimated 50 percent of families in the U.S. own a dog, and about one-third own a cat. If you fall into either of these categories, you are probably familiar with the annual notices you get from your vet, persistently reminding you to vaccinate your pet. But what they aren’t telling you, is that most vaccines provide your pet with lifetime immunity, eliminating the need to vaccinate year after year.
In fact, vaccinating your pet annually poses more risks than it does benefits, because like humans, vaccines cause chronic illness in pets, too. Itchy, allergic dogs are the number one reason pets visit the vet, says Will Falconer, DVM, a homeopathic veterinarian providing care in Central Texas. Continue reading »
Ferocious vaccine manufacturers are constantly on the move, looking for new “demographics” to shoot with vaccines. If they could stick a needle into a rock and get paid for it, they would find a reason to do it.
But in this case, we’re talking about pregnant women.
Protection, protection, protection—that’s the cover the government keeps pushing.
Meanwhile, the vaccines they’re foisting on pregnant women have a track record of damage. Continue reading »
Previous reports have linked mass suicides among farmers in India to mounting debt and crop failures as a result of GMO crops, particularly cotton, as it was forcibly converted to patented, transgenic varieties owned by large agrochemical companies. But now we’re learning that pesticide exposure may be to blame for a new wave of suicides among farmers in India.
Some 80 farmers in the village of Badi committed suicide between January and March of this year, according to the Times of India. Home to more than 2,500, Badi village (Madhya Pradesh) has had more than 350 suicides over the last two decades, affecting nearly every family in the village. Continue reading »
They don’t even have to quit junk foods or fatty foods
(And just imagine what would happen if they would quit all junk food and would only eat real, fresh, organic food!!! – I.U.)
Although it may sound like a bad infomercial, a study financed by the National Institutes of Health has shown thatcutting added sugar in children’s diets can improve their overall health incredibly quickly.
The study observed 43 obese children and found that eliminating or reducing added sugar, even while keeping the same number of calories and savory junk foods in their diets, led to improving many obesity-related health issues in just ten days. The children who were selected were not only obese, but also suffered from a chronic metabolic disorder, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Continue reading »
Quaker Oats, owned by PepsiCo, has been sued over its “all natural” oats containing high levels of glyphosate weed killer (sold as “Roundup” by Monsanto).
The New York Times, forever a defender of Monsanto and GMOs, is blatantly lying to its readers by claiming the glyphosate found in Quaker Oats is nothing more than “traces.” In reality, the glyphosate contamination of Quaker Oats was tested at alarming levels by a St. Louis laboratory using the ELISA technique.
