Bird flu spreads to six more states; officials baffled

© Jeremy Bronson/Flickr
So far the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has confirmed that 23 U.S. poultry farms have been infected with the deadly H5N2 avian bird flu virus in a total of at least 7 states, including California, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Kansas, and Arkansas bringing the number of dead dinner birds, turkeys, to over 1.2 million in total as officials race the clock to contain the outbreak.

While officials maintain the massive die off, culling, of the fowl should pose little to no health threat to the general public, the loss has added to growing fears that this years poultry stock will weigh in at an all-time low. And coupled with the fact that California's extreme drought situation might affect up to 50% of America's, fruit, vegetable and nut supply within the next year or two we may soon be facing a massive food crisis.

Comment: Perhaps the investigating officials wouldn't be so baffled and running around like chickens with their heads cut off to contain their virus if they stopped to look at the environment in which these farm-raised birds live. The overcrowded, unsanitary conditions and rampant use of antibiotics is surely explanation enough for these 'virus' outbreaks.

Investigators would be better served looking at nutritional, immunological and environmental factors rather than hunting for some elusive virus.

War on anti-vaxxers: Australian government removes conscientious objection provision, denies subsidies and family tax benefits

Australians who refuse to vaccinate their children will no longer receive child care subsidies and family tax benefits, Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced on Sunday.

The widely anticipated government crackdown comes as Australia sees an increase in the number of so-called vaccine objectors.

"The choice made by families not to immunise their children is not supported by public policy or medical research nor should such action be supported by taxpayers in the form of child care payments," Abbott said.

The government will on January 1 remove a "conscientious objection" provision and permit exemptions only on strict medical or religious grounds, he said.

Parents who cite religion would have to be affiliated with a religious group with a registered objection approved by the government.

Paul Offit's vaccine lies deconstructed: A mind-blowing interview with Dr. Suzanne Humphries

© Natural News
Suzanne Humphries, MD, is an internal medicine and kidney specialist who received conventional medical education. After seeing mainstream doctors and hospital staff categorically ignore routine vaccine injuries occurring in her patients, Dr. Humphries began researching vaccine science which validated her concerns about the injections.

Dr. Humphries, who co-authored Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History in 2013, recently joined Jonathan Landsman for an interview at the Vaccine World Summit, where she exposes the myths and lies surrounding vaccine research.

Jonathan Landsman: Welcome to the Vaccine World Summit. I'm your host, Jonathan Landsman. Our guest is a conventionally-educated medical doctor with specialties in internal medicine and nephrology. After seeing vaccine injuries in her own patients that were categorically ignored by the mainstream doctors and administration in her workplace, she started researching vaccines to disprove the claims that doctors made out of ignorance to refute her own experience and those of her patients. The resistance she encountered only showed her how important it is to keep researching and bring out the truths she discovered to the public. She has co-authored a book, Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History, which is available on Amazon.com. And today, you're about to discover the hidden truths behind the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Suzanne Humphries to our program. Dr. Humphries, welcome.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries: Thank you, Jonathan. Thank you for having me.

Jonathan Landsman: Dr. Humphries, the mainstream media has been constantly highlighting the Disney Land measles outbreak and blaming this on unvaccinated children. What are the facts about this outbreak?

Dr. Suzanne Humphries: Okay, well, it's very important to understand the exact numbers because if you just listen to the news, you would think that something that has never happened before is going on and the world is being taken by storm by this terrible deadly measles virus. And what happened is as of February 11th of this year, there were a total of 125 measles cases, with rash, that occurred between December 28th, 2014 and February 8th, 2015. It is said that the origin of these outbreaks was at the Disney California theme park, although they have no idea who the index case is or where that person came from. Anything you hear on the news is just surmising and assumption; they have no idea. What we know about the 110 patients that are California residents, there's a breakdown of who was vaccinated and who wasn't vaccinated, and this is what to really look for when looking at these reports. Among those 110 California patients, 47 of them, which is nearly half, had an unknown or undocumented vaccination status. And this is very interesting because these cases were all diagnosed and confirmed, yet, for some reason, they weren't able to determine if these people were vaccinated or not. And so, it's usually just assumed that these people are unvaccinated when they're reported.

However, it's possible that they could have all been vaccinated with one, two, or three vaccines. Okay, then we know there were 13 vaccinated people, 5 of whom had 1 dose of the vaccine, 7 had 2 doses, 1 had 3 doses, and 1 had immunoglobulin seropositivity documented, which indicated a prior vaccination. Now, we have the unvaccinated, of which there were 49. Of them, one quarter of them couldn't have been vaccinated anyway because they were too young, so they're counted as unvaccinated, even though these are not people that exempted out. That leaves us with 37 more vaccine-eligible people, and all we know is that 28 of them - 18 of the 28 that are left over were children less than 18 years old, and 10 were adults. Now, we're left with 9 that we can't account for, but Dr. Schuchat of the CDC keeps saying that there were many cases that weren't vaccinated because they were sick at the time when the vaccine was due. And I find that an interesting comment, especially given my history of knowing that when you vaccinate sick people, very bad things happen, yet the CDC is continuously pushing, and the message there is not to opt out of vaccines just because you're sick. So, all in all, we have 18 patients, out of 110 patients, who we can say were of vaccinating age, less than 18 years old, 28 total that were opting out of vaccines, 10 of which were adults. And this is what we're making a big fuss out of.

Officials label 'healthy eating' as newest 'eating disorder'

© Natural Society
Do you consider healthy, clean eating to be a priority in your life? According to the 'psychiatric officials' who want to add healthy eating to the extensive list of mental disorders, you have an eating disorder. 'Orthorexia nervosa' to be specific.

We first told you about this back in February of this year, when major news outlets began pushing the term 'orthorexia nervos' non-stop in declaring healthy eating a mental disorder.

The story, written by Jeffrey Jaxen for Natural Society, received over 57,000 shares on Facebook and several million viewers who could not believe the reality of the piece. Unfortunately for sane eaters who do place a priority on eating right, the story was entirely correct.

And now, we are seeing the emergence of orthorexia nervos in the news once more. This time, we are being told it's the newest 'eating disorder' that we could all be 'suffering from'. Because if you don't want to eat things like Monsanto's cancer-linked chemicals, artificial additives, and high-fructose corn syrup, you must be crazy.

The Daily Mail reports breaks down the latest declaration from 'psychiatric officials' who are heavily pushing the orthorexia nervos eating disorder:
"Some clinicians argue orthorexia nervosa should be recognised as a separate eating disorder and have proposed clinical DSM diagnostic criteria. They note distinct pathological behaviours with orthorexia nervosa, including a motivation for feelings of perfection or purity rather than weight loss, as they see with anorexia and bulimia.

Why healthy eating may be the new eating disorder: Raw food and paleo dieters at risk of a dangerous obsession with nutrition"

The U.S. Congress is "Out to Lunch" about vaccine science

Image
If ever there were a body of numbskulls taking in the "cool aid" of corporate largess, lobbyists and consensus science, the U.S. Congress, apparently, fits that bill when it comes to the hard-core facts regarding toxic ingredients in vaccines along with the so-called 'science of vaccines' and the vested-interest roles they have played in modern life.

Nothing expresses that more than the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34), which has become more of a nightmare, especially for anyone who's been damaged by vaccines. Congress apparently went 'off the rails' on that one; never has bothered to investigate all the damage vaccines are causing—see the VAERS reporting system—and now, the current members of the U.S. House of Representatives issued a House Resolution—H.Res.117—that readers need to know about.

H.Res.117 is nothing short of a true travesty that has hallmarks of Big Pharma spin all over it. Facts and figures are so outlandish, everyone should be challenging their congressperson, if he/she signed it, to provide written proof of where they got those 'facts and figures'. It's nothing short of a conspiracy of ignorance regarding the true scientific facts about toxic vaccines.

Nothing, or no one, explains more about vaccines than the 'father of U.S. vaccinology', Maurice Hilleman, MD, who candidly talks about what's in vaccines in this video.

Comment: As the author writes; "The current Resolution the House of Representatives passed ought to be interpreted as a prelude to mandatory vaccination for ALL U.S. citizens" Just a few examples:

32 health benefits of apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is more than just a dipping sauce or a salad dressing. It is a versatile product that has been proven to have healing benefits, it started with Hippocrates and it is still being used now to treat various ailments.

Image
Based on historical records, vinegar was discovered around 5,000 BC by the Babylonians by accident. The French calls it vin aigre which means sour wine. This accidental discovery turned out to be great because it was an extremely versatile product even during the ancient times.

Even back then Hippocrates discovered that it had a lot of healing properties and used it when treating wounds. Chinese also used vinegar as to treat ailments as early as 1,200 B.C.

One of the most popular types of vinegar, the apple cider (or ACV) is touted by a lot of natural health advocates as having a lot of health benefits some of which include weight loss, diabetes control and improving cardiovascular health.

If you look around the web, you'll see that there are a lot of benefits, some are backed by scientific research while some aren't. My goal here is to enumerate all of these benefits I find here and link to the sources.

Let's dig in to those benefits one by one.

First I've divided it into two sections, those back with scientific research and those without.

Schizophrenic government: Feds admit medical pot works on brain tumors, but US Justice Department part is going after medical pot users anyway

Medical Marijuana Pouring Out Of A Prescription Bottle
In a report issued by a U.S. government-funded research group tasked with studying drug abuse and addiction, researchers are admitting that marijuana is useful in killing off specific types of brain tumors.

The report — coming from a government-backed group with annual budget of over $1 billion — arrives at an awkward time for the administration following an announcement by the Department of Justice this week that it will continue to prosecute medical marijuana cases against individuals in defiance of Congress.

According to the Daily Caller, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) issued a revised report for the month of April, stating, "recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others. Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors. Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation."

Bad news for Monsanto: The world's most credible medical journal outlines the dangerous health hazard of Glyphosate

Image
© thelibertybeacon.com
Given the restrictions and the level of control placed upon the disclosure of information when it comes to "credible" medical studies, it seems surprising that glyphosate, the most commonly used herbicide on the planet, has been officially deemed a dangerous health hazard to human beings by the mainstream health community.
"Glyphosate currently has the highest global production volume of all herbicides. The largest use worldwide is in agriculture. The agricultural use of glyphosate has increased sharply since the development of crops that have been genetically modified to make them resistant to glyphosate. Glyphosate is also used in forestry, urban, and home applications. Glyphosate has been detected in the air during spraying, in water, and in food. The general population is exposed primarily through residence near sprayed areas, home use, and diet and the level that has been observed is generally low." (source)

Feds suspend funding for Los Angeles cell towers

Image
This is an update on the cell tower situation in Los Angeles, California, that I wrote about earlier (here and here), as a follow up on the hearing.

Well, even more news is breaking regarding those 'mushroom-like-cropping-up' cell towers. Activists in LA report to me that:
the US Federal government suspended funding of the Los Angeles arm of the deadly federal surveillance tower roll out!! According to Fierce Wireless Magazine, we gave First Net a "black eye" which they may or may not recover from. [1]
Fierce Wireless Tech reported about that here.

First Net talks about the problems here.

Childhood chemo survivors face debilitating, long-term health consequences

After America has witnessed at least two cases of forced chemotherapy on children - the true, damaging nature of chemotherapy bubbles to the surface.

A 17-year-old was strapped down and forcefully injected chemo toxins against her express wishes after it went before a judge. Likewise, an Ohio children's hospital caught dosing a 10-year-old Amish girl with experimental chemotherapy drugs got a judge to uphold an order to keep up the "life-saving" procedure. The family left the country for her recovery with alternative methods.

The unfortunate truth is that judges setting these violating precedents could be sentencing children to debilitating health problems later on or a shortened life. According to Northwestern University, the number of U.S. childhood cancer survivors has increased but most of the survivors past the five-year mark face chronic health problems related to treatment.
