- U.S. Hospitals Expose Critically Ill Children to Harmful Glyphosate Herbicides (Sustainable Puls, Jan 5, 2015):
In a new round of testing commissioned by Moms Across America, the world’s number one herbicide, glyphosate, has been discovered in PediaSure Enteral Nutritional Drink, which is widely used by hospitals in the U.S. for children who are in need of nutrition in intensive care.
Moms Across America Founder Zen Honeycutt stated Monday; “It is appalling that our health care providers have been led to believe this feeding liquid is safe. Our children and loved ones believe that our health institutions are supporting their immune system and recovery, instead they are being fed a liquid which contains a herbicide that could be seriously damaging their health.” Continue reading »

- Deception: Major tortilla chip brand using ‘No GMO’ label on contaminated product (Natural News, Dec 22, 2014):
The nonprofit consumer advocacy group Consumer Reports has released a new report on genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) that warns of inadvertent deception and possible outright fraud in non-GMO claims that aren’t certified by independent third parties such as the NON-GMO Project.
The popular tortilla chip brand “Xochitl Totopos de Maiz,” according to the report, is actively selling tortilla chips all across America that bear a “No GMO” label, but that contain high amounts of GM corn. Tests conducted on six separate lots of the product revealed 75 percent or more GM corn content, despite labels to the contrary.

- Scientific team sounds the alarm on sugar as a source of disease (Medical Xpress, Jan 2, 2015):
Is sugar making us sick? A team of scientists at the University of California in San Francisco believes so, and they’re doing something about it. They launched an initiative to bring information on food and drink and added sugar to the public by reviewing more than 8,000 scientific papers that show a strong link between the consumption of added sugar and chronic diseases.
The common belief until now was that sugar just makes us fat, but it’s become clear through research that it’s making us sick. For example, there’s the rise in fatty-liver disease, the emergence of Type 2 diabetes as an epidemic in children and the dramatic increase in metabolic disorders. Continue reading »

- How to increase your risk of dying? Take a statin drug:
What prompted this post? An article in Clinical Nutrition revealed that compared to elderly patients with cholesterol levels of 200mg/dl, those with cholesterol levels of 183mg/dl had a significantly higher death rate. (1) The authors found that for every 1mg/dl increase in serum cholesterol, the death rate was reduced by 0.4%. You read that correctly—elevated cholesterol levels protect the elderly from death. The Honolulu Heart Program found that men aged 71-93 years in the lowest total cholesterol group had a 64% increase risk in death as compared to men with the highest cholesterol levels.(2) The Honolulu study was reported in 2001. It is too bad the media does not trumpet these results.
- Nearly half of Brits on prescription drugs – report (RT, Dec 30, 2014):
Nearly half of all Britons are taking prescription medication on a regular basis according to new figures produced by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)
According to the HSCIC, 50 percent of women and 43 percent of men are taking specialised drugs to combat physical and mental illnesses, with cholesterol-lowering statins and anti-depressants being among the most common drugs taken by Brits.
According to the HSE report, doctors issued on average 18.7 prescriptions per person in England during 2013, costing the NHS more than £15bn per year. Continue reading »

Dr. Ellsworth Wareham, 100, a celebrated heart surgeon, still mows his lawn and trims his bushes. He credits his longevity in large part to his vegan diet, which he adopted midlife. (Photo courtesy Loma Linda University Medical Center)
- 100-year-old surgeon, WWII vet who retired at age 95 shares secrets to longevity (FOX News, Dec 16, 2014):
Today, being a surgeon is like being a commercial airline pilot: One must complete hundreds of hours of educational training before flying solo with human lives in his or her hands. But back in 100-year-old Dr. Ellsworth Wareham’s day, surgeons studied diagrams and simulated human procedures on dogs before operating on a patient by themselves.
Wareham, of Loma Linda, Calif., was one of the earliest doctors to practice open heart surgery in the United States, and the first at Loma Linda University, whose cardiothoracic surgery program has been ranked among the top heart hospitals in the United States. Continue reading »

- Carla Shuford: 54-Year Bone Cancer Survivor (The Gerson Institute, April 16, 2014):
Carla Shuford grew up on a small dairy farm in North Carolina. Though the organic movement was not as established as it is today, in the mid-1950s her father decided to stop using pesticides in his garden in favor of adopting organic farming practices.
Though in retrospect it seems incredibly prescient, her father had no idea yet that this decision would become instrumental in saving his daughter’s life.
In 1958, at age 15, Carla Shuford was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma, which had metastasized to her lymph nodes. Osteogenic sarcoma is the second most common type of primary bone cancer, which typically presents in the leg or shoulder. It is most commonly diagnosed in children and adolescents.

- Roundup Causes Autism says top MIT Scientist (Paul Craig Roberts, Dec 28, 2014):
Monsanto’s Glyphosate Toxicity Means Half of US Children Will Be Autistic by 2025
- Half of All Children Will Be Autistic by 2025, Warns Senior Research Scientist at MIT (The Alliance for Natural Health USA, Dec 23, 2014):
Why? Evidence points to glyphosate toxicity from the overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food.
For over three decades, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology, over the years publishing over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles . In recent years she has concentrated on the relationship between nutrition and health, tackling such topics as Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.
At a conference last Thursday, in a special panel discussion about GMOs, she took the audience by surprise when she declared, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” She noted that the side effects of autism closely mimic those of glyphosate toxicity, and presented data showing a remarkably consistent correlation  between the use of Roundup on crops (and the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds) with rising rates of autism. Children with autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiency, low serum sulfate, seizures, and mitochondrial disorder. Continue reading »

- Obama Increases Allowable Levels of Radiation in Drinking Water ‘Dramatically’ (Natural Society, Dec 18, 2014):
In Time for Massive New Dumping of Daiichi Radiation
Japanese government official has reported, “I was overwhelmed by the amount of contaminated water coming from the reactors, we must dump it in the ocean.” This isn’t such great news for the US since President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently gave their approval for “dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following “radiological incidents,” such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs.”
The Nuclear Industry calls this their “new normal,” according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). Continue reading »

- The science is conclusive: Mobile phones cause cancer (Natural News, Dec 26, 2014):
They say there’s only two things constant in this life: death and taxes. But a third viable contender might be cancer, which an extensive cohort of scientific research has found is caused by prolonged exposure to radiation from cell phones and their associated communication towers.
Contrary to what you may have heard in the mainstream news, mobile phones and the antennas that allow them to communicate emit powerful, microwave radio frequencies capable of penetrating our bodies and cells. And constant exposure to these frequencies, according to the science, appears to be one of the leading causes of cancer in the modern age.
Wireless phone radiation can lead to brain cancer
Extensive research into the connection between cell phone radiation and cancer has linked this ubiquitous modern technology to two main types of brain tumors: gliomas and acoustic neuromas. Information compiled by the ElectricSense.com has confirmed the following findings with regard to cell phones and brain cancer. Continue reading »
