The official narrative on Zika is a hilarious medical hoax. Millions of people in Brazil and Colombia have carried Zika for decades with no recorded increase in microcephaly cases. Only after a toxic chemical larvacide was dumped into the public water supply did horrific birth defects start to be noticed.
Now, the same quack science cabal of Disney, the CDC, the WHO and wealthy drug companies has been whipping up mass hysteria over Zika, a virus that even the CDC admits causes virtually no symptoms, no hospitalizations and no deaths. In response to this mass hysteria rooted in outright medical quackery, authorities have been desperately pushing DEET chemicals as insect repellants. Continue reading »

After two decades of planting glyphosate-tolerant crops, resistant weeds have overtaken farm fields across the U.S., leaving farmers to battle an increasingly difficult situation. At least 35 weed species are now resistant to glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup.1
Studies2 have also linked glyphosate to increases in Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), a deadly plant disease that causes plants to turn yellow and die — including crops that have never been sprayed with the herbicide but were planted in a field that received an application the previous season.
In an effort to skirt disaster, Monsanto developed a new breed of genetically engineered (GE) seeds tolerant to other pesticides besides Roundup. This, they claim, is the answer to rising weed resistance — a side effect the company said would not occur from the use of their GE seeds in the first place.
We now know, without any shadow of a doubt, they were wrong. And there’s every reason to believe they are wrong about their next generation of GE seeds as well. If anything, it will likely boost weed resistance, continue driving the increase in pesticide use and make our food even more toxic. Continue reading »
Researchers believe widespread use of fungicides on crops is reducing effectiveness of frontline medicines
Scientists have warned that potentially deadly fungal infections are acquiring resistance to many of the medicines currently used to combat them. More than a million people die of fungal infections every year, including about 7,000 in the UK, and deaths are likely to increase as resistance continues to rise. Continue reading »
The EpiPen is a useful device for individuals who suffer from severe allergies. So when news broke that Mylan, the sole maker of the autoinjector “pens” in America, had hiked the prices of its products from $57 each in 2007 to $600 for a package of two in 2016, news outlets had a field day.
Promptly after, politicians seized the opportunity to bank on this crisis by promising to “do something.”
Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton urged Mylan to voluntarily slash the prices of its products while promising that, once she’s elected, her “plan to address exorbitant drug price hikes like these” will be finally implemented. This is a particularly empty promise considering Mylan has donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation, which was recently revealed to be peddling influence in exchange for cash.

Antibiotics are, in my opinion, no solution.
Nature’s antibiotics, i.e. plants with antibiotic properties, are part of the solution.
On any ranked list of nasty diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks and fleas in the Western world, Borrelia burgdorferi, would have to lie near the top. These bacteria cause Lyme disease, which was first recognised in the US in the early 1970s among patients in Lyme, Connecticut. However, the oldest known case was the Tyrolean Iceman, a 5,300-year-old Copper-age mummified individual, discovered in the Italian Alps.
Lyme disease is one of the fastest growing vector-borne diseases in the Western world – the threat it poses has become increasingly apparent in recent years. Estimates suggest that more than 300,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year in the US and more than 65,000 cases a year are diagnosed in Europe. However, the true number of people affected is probably underestimated due to under-reporting and the limitations of current diagnostic tests. Continue reading »
– TV: “Astronomical amounts of radiation” found in downtown Tokyo… Directly outside gov’t building — ‘Horrific’ readings where kids playing in Fukushima, ‘extreme’ levels found where food is grown for elementary school lunches — Nuclear expert shocked, upset by discovery (VIDEO):
CCTV (Channel 17 in Burlington, Vermont), published Jun 20, 2016 (emphasis added):
- Margaret Harrington, host: I know you mentioned Arnie Gundersen, the chief engineer at Fairewinds, and he said that he measured the radiation there, too. Could you talk about that a little bit?
- Maggie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education founder and CEO: He’s working with some other scientists who are studying — both Japanese scientists, the samples that they took, and the US scientists who are evaluating the samples — and they’re finding astronomical amounts of radiation, even in downtown Tokyo outside of METI’s door. METI is the regulatory agency over nuclear power… When he and others were downtown in Tokyo, they took samples right there in a garden right outside the door and on the front doormat, and these are really, really high samples. Frightening, because people walking in Tokyo will then be inhaling that dust. What was the film we saw from Japan that had the mothers who were in an area where kids play and run from middle school?

“About time too!
I love these as a fill in snack, but after reading that all grain is now coated in Glyphosate to dessicate the crop for easy harvesting, I always wondered about this.
Now we know.”
When is the word “natural” misleading in advertising? That’s the basis for a lawsuit filed August 25, 2016 against General Mills, maker of the brand Nature Valley Granola Bars, who label their products’ packages with the words “Made with 100% NATURAL whole grain OATS.” The lawsuit was filed by Beyond Pesticides, Moms Across America, and Organic Consumers Association using the Richman Law Group  in Washington, DC, citing the District of Columbia’s Consumer Protection Procedure Act.
Glyphosate, a key herbicide chemical active in several commercial and agricultural herbicides, has been found in General Mills’ natural granola bars. Since when is a man-made toxic chemical considered natural? So, three consumer groups filed a lawsuit and rightfully so, I think.
Jay Feldman, Executive Director of Beyond Pesticides, says Continue reading »
Is pesticide spraying to kill mosquitoes causing autism? In the least, the government is spraying larvicides with great impunity in many neighborhoods throughout the U.S. in order to ‘combat Zika’ and other diseases said to be caused by mosquitoes. Little is known of the true ramifications for such hackneyed actions, but one study suggests that in places where mosquito pesticides are sprayed, a 25 percent increase in autism results.
Researchers used data from another study, called the CHARGE Study (Childhood Autism Risks From Genetics and the Environment), which found that if pregnant mothers in their third trimester were exposed to pyrethroids or a few other pesticides, their children were much more likely to be diagnosed with autism.

So when will the citizens wake up to the criminality of their government in favoring killer corporate opiates over safe natural painkillers?
Set your mindset to objective and come with me to the little-known but plucky nation of Lower Slobovia. The residents of Lower Slobovia have two choices when they are suffering from chronic pain:
1. A natural, non-addictive medication that they can grow themselves that has never caused a single fatality due to overdose, adverse reactions or mixing with other drugs (polypharmacy), or
2. synthetic opiates manufactured by pharmaceutical corporations that are highly addictive, trigger multiple adverse reactions, manifest dangerous polypharmaceutical attributes and have killed over 165,000 people in the past 15 years– 28 times the nation’s 5,790 combat deaths in recent military conflicts.
The corporations manufacturing and distributing the synthetic opiates as “safe” hid the truth about their medications from doctors, patients and the media: ‘You Want a Description of Hell?’ Oxycontin’s 12-Hour Problem (via John F.) OxyContin’s stunning success masked a fundamental problem: The drug wears off hours early in many people, a Los Angeles Times investigation found. OxyContin is a chemical cousin of heroin, and when it doesn’t last, patients can experience excruciating symptoms of withdrawal, including an intense craving for the drug.
So take a guess which class of drugs is perfectly legal and widely promoted by Lower Slobovia’s healthcare system, and which one is classified as a restricted Schedule 1 drug by the nation’s Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), i.e. as dangerous as heroin? Continue reading »
Poliomylitis, or polio for short, is a disease that has been around since ancient times, and despite the medical advances we have made in the United States in terms of regular and natural health, there is still no cure for this dreaded, disabling disease.
An infectious viral affliction that attacks nerve cells and, at times, the body’s central nervous system, polio causes a phenomenon known as muscle wasting (a decrease in the mass of muscle), and can also cause paralysis and death. Continue reading »
NOT “the first coma patient to regain consciousness without life-threatening surgery”.
There are other non-invasive methods to do this.
A 25-year-old man has become the first coma patient to regain consciousness without life-threatening surgery.
The man, who has not been identified, had his brain jump-started with new ultrasound technology in an experiment by UCLA.
Within days of waking up, he was fully conscious, responding to questions, and even gave his doctor a fist-bump. Continue reading »
New research proves that ‘gender-bending’ chemicals, which leach from human products into rivers and oceans, can have a significant impact on the ability of fish to breed. The study has important implications for understanding the impacts of these chemicals.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) affect hormones. They are found in products ranging from contraceptive drugs to liquid detergents.
They have been seeping into rivers through the sewage system for decades and alter the biology of fish, changing male fish to make them more female. Continue reading »
Transgenderism has become the political cause celebre for liberals of late, but there could be another explanation for its rise: Big Pharma and in particular a so-called “wonder drug” that has been pushed on women during the latter half of the 20th century.
As reported by the web site Collective Evolution, DES – a.k.a. diethylstilbestrol – is a synthetic estrogen that was administered to women who were pregnant from 1940 through the early 1970s and was hailed as a wonder medication that prevented morning sickness and miscarriages. Continue reading »
A solar still/solar water distiller is not difficult to build.
There have been lots of videos on YouTube that show how to build one yourself.
Many solar stills that have won international awards and were designed to help Africa produce clean water, but they never made it to the market and never reached all those countries in desperate need of clean water and I do not wonder why this is the case.
If you are interested, and you should be, because you may find yourself one day in a survival situation, take a look at all those different ways to make safe and relatively pure water:
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has left almost 90 percent of the water supply unfit for people to drink. Fayez al-Hindi has devised a homemade water desalinization setup that is helping to solve the water crisis, though, as some Gaza residents face running out of water in mere months. It runs on solar power and a little ingenuity.
Three years of jets bombing the Gaza strip have left the territory’s water infrastructure extremely unstable. Both reservoirs above ground and below have been damaged, so even when it rains, the water is often contaminated, and made unfit to drink. More than $34 million dollars’ worth of damage has been done to Gaza’s water infrastructure. Continue reading »
Diet changes, acupuncture, neural therapy (according to Dr. Huneke), osteopathy, vegetable juice fasting, homeopathy and also coffee enemas (according to Dr. Max Gerson, see Gerson Therapy) have proven time and time again to not only help to greatly reduce the pain, which is only a symptom of an underlying condition, but to completely heal the condition that caused the pain.

Deaths from prescription painkiller overdoses are “skyrocketing” among women, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that found such deaths have increased five-fold from 1999 to 2010.1
With more women now dying every day from drug overdoses than from motor vehicle crashes, public health agencies are being forced to take notice of this epidemic problem and many are asking the million-dollar question of why so many women (and men) are falling victim to these drugs.

Physicians whose state boards have sanctioned them for harming patients, unnecessarily prescribing addictive drugs, bilking federal insurance programs and even sexual misconduct nonetheless continue to receive payments for consulting, giving talks about products, and more.
This story was co-published with NPR’s Shots blog.
Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are continuing to pay doctors as promotional speakers and expert advisers even after they’ve been disciplined for serious misconduct, according to an analysis by ProPublica.
Greece has been forced to suspend blood donations after a spike in cases of malaria, believed to have been brought over by the large influx of migrants who have entered the country.
So far, 12 municipalities have out of 325 have banned blood donations, with authorities fearing the infectious disease could spread to both locals and tourists during the height of the summer.
Athanassios Tsakris, professor of microbiology at the University of Athens, told reporters: “Drastic measures have to be taken to avert this strain from taking hold within the domestic population. The screening of migrants must also intensify.” Continue reading »

One of the worst drug disasters in history is unfolding right before our eyes.
DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen that was given to pregnant women from 1940 through the early 1970s. DES was touted as a “wonder drug” that would prevent miscarriage and morning sickness. It was only after millions of women and fetuses were exposed to DES that it was recognized that DES was causing deadly cancers in both the women who took it and the children exposed to it in-utero. According to The Wonder Drug Movie, a documentary about DES:
The currently proven effects of exposure include a rare vaginal cancer in DES Daughters; greater risk for breast cancer in DES Mothers; possible risk for testicular cancer in DES Sons; abnormal reproductive organs; infertility; high-risk pregnancies; and an increased risk for breast cancer in DES Daughters after age 40. There are a number of other suspected effects, including auto-immune disorders, but many of these effects are still awaiting further research.
DES is considered to be one of the worst drug disasters in human history. The deadly cancers, infertility, and other health maladies that DES has caused have led to suffering, sickness, and death for thousands of people. Though the drug companies responsible have paid settlements of millions of dollars, they have never issued an apology or paid amounts sufficient to make up for the actual damage done.
This video shows some of the effects of DES on the women who were exposed to it in-utero: Continue reading »
Despite the insidious attempts of the corporate-controlled U.S. media to censor the stories about the deadly side effects of vaccines, the truth keeps surfacing. The latest vaccine tragedy to strike has killed two babies in La Pimienta, Mexico and sent 37 more to the hospital with serious reactions to toxic vaccine additives. (Tweet this story)
“…14 children are in serious condition, 22 are stable and one is in critical condition,” the Chiapas Health Secretariat said in a statement via Latino.FoxNews.com.
What’s especially alarming is that only 52 children were vaccinated in all, meaning that 75% of those receiving the vaccines are now either dead or hospitalized. Continue reading »
As fear of the Zika virus spreads throughout the United States, authorities are desperately looking for ways to protect their citizens. As reported by Circa, over 1,000 people in the U.S. have been infected with the Zika virus, which is believed to cause severe birth defects like microcephaly.
One of the primary weapons to kill the disease-carrying mosquitoes is the use of aerial pesticides – chemicals that are sprayed from airplanes and helicopters. While the number of states using aerial spraying or fogging campaigns to kill off mosquitoes is rising, some scientists are raising serious questions about their safety. Continue reading »
A mysterious flesh-eating virus is spreading throughout Australia – and doctors have no idea where it comes from or what causes it.
The Bairnsdale virus, also known as the buruli ulcer is a gruesome flesh-eating bacteria which devours flesh, fat, tendons, nerves and extreme cases even bone.
The virus has been in Victoria for decades with 45 cases already recorded this year – but it could soon move to New South Wales.

It is not enough to be the poorest country in the world and to be in the sphere of corruption from the Clinton Foundation after suffering a devastating earthquake in 2010, now the UN has admitted that its peacekeeping troops literally imported cholera bacteria in its efforts to help the nation.
The only problem is those efforts have now cost the country thousands of deaths throughout the last six years.
An outbreak of yellow fever that’s been hitting the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola hard, killing more than 400 people and sickening even more, is poised to spread beyond central Africa. It’s already the region’s largest outbreak in decades.
Yellow fever is transmitted by the same mosquito as the Zika virus. The symptoms can be anything from just a general fever to jaundice (that’s where the “yellow” comes in) and a severe liver disease with bleeding. While the more severe symptoms are relatively rare, the virus kills about half of those who develop them. Continue reading »
Those who support the nationwide legalization of marijuana for therapeutic use, were disappointed by the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recent failure to reclassify marijuana’s status from that of a Schedule I drug to another more appropriate classification.
Since 23 states have now legalized marijuana for medical use, and since numerous studies have confirmed its value as medicine and have proven that it is safe, it seemed the logical next step to begin relaxing the laws at the federal level. Continue reading »
“The bill claims that depriving minors of animal products can cause neurological disorders and anemia by leaving them iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.”
Poor gorillas, orang-utans, elephants, horses, deers and cattle. They are all vegans and must suffer from neurological disorders and anemia, being iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.
Poor, weak, suffering animals …
The meat of some of these animals is considered to be the best source of vitamin-B12 and protein, but where did they get their B12 and protein from???
Maybe they should jail all these animals as well, because they too are making their children go vegan.
That said, being a vegan does not automatically mean eating healthy.
There are lots of vegans that have a horrible, horrible diet.
And yes, children’s health would suffer immensely from such a crappy diet, almost like being on a McD junk food diet.
However, there also have been “brilliant” parents, with “normal” eating habits, who fed their toddlers left over pizza (or whatever kind of food has been left over) by blending it in a high speed mixer and that way killed their children with this newly created baby food diet.
Most children suffer greatly from eating a SAD (Standard American Diet).
A carefully selected vegan diet or even a raw vegan diet is absolutely great for your health and for your children.
If parliamentarian Elvira Savino has her way, Italian parents who insist on a vegan diet for their children will risk up to four years in jail. In her shockingly tyrannical over-reach, the center-right party member seeks to “stigmatize the reckless and dangerous eating behavior imposed by parents” who make children go vegan.
“I have nothing against vegans or veganism as long as it is a free choice by adults,” she told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday, days after she presented the proposed law in the lower house Chamber of Deputies.
“I just find it absurd that some parents are allowed to impose their will on children in an almost fanatical, religious way, often without proper scientific knowledge or medical consultation,” she said.
“Do-it-yourself on these matters terrorizes me.”
As GrubStreet.com reports, under the ‘Savino’ law, according to La Repubblica, raising anyone under the age of 17 on such a diet would be an offense punishable by up to six years in prison. Continue reading »
