Monsanto's best-selling chemical brew: Glyphosate - proven to be making milk toxic

Need another reason to ditch Round Up chemicals, including its main ingredient, glyphosate? If you've got milk, then more than likely you've got a cow with a disturbed metabolism caused by Monsanto's best-selling chemical brew.

In a study published in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology, Dr. Kruger and researchers found that dairy cattle are affected adversely by glyphosate. Specifically:
"All cows investigated at the eight Danish dairy farms excreted glyphosate in their urine at significant different amounts between the farms. We found increased blood serum levels of parameters indicative for cytotoxicity like GLDH, GOT, and CK and the lipid profile marker cholesterol in cows at all farms and high urea levels in half of the farm animals. Correlations between glyphosate and some of the measured blood serum parameters to CK (R= 0.135), Se (R=-0.188), Co (R= -0,403) and Zn (R=0,175) demonstrate that glyphosate is toxic to the normal metabolism of dairy cows. This study gives the first documentation to which extent Danish dairy cattle are exposed to glyphosate and its impact on different blood parameters."

Comment: As the author states: "glyphosate assaults your body in many ways you can likely only begin to imagine."
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in one of the most heavily used herbicide in the world: Monsanto's Roundup®. The industry claims that Roundup® is quite safe, but authors of a recent article in the scientific journal Entropy reach a very different conclusion:
"Contrary to the current widely-held misconception that glyphosate is relatively harmless to humans, the available evidence shows that glyphosate may rather be the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies."[i]
The acute toxicity of glyphosate is relatively low, meaning that accidentally ingesting it will likely not cause immediate harm. Chronic toxicity - the effects of continually ingesting glyphosate residues in food - is cause for concern. Glyphosate interferes with fundamental biochemical reactions and may predispose humans to obesity, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other health problems.


Vitamin C: The sunshine vitamin that regenerates and detoxifies your hormones

Sometimes called the 'sunshine vitamin' because it is found in high levels in citrus fruits, vitamin C has a uniquely regenerative role in hormone health and cancer prevention that has been overlooked for over twenty years!

Truly groundbreaking research on the regenerative potential of vitamin C therapy for hormone health as well as cancer prevention was performed over twenty years ago, and yet still today it has received little to no attention.

Published in 1993 in the journal Radiation Physics and Chemistry and titled, "Photo-induced regeneration of hormones by electron transfer processes: Potential biological and medical consequences," Austrian researchers explored the role that vitamin C plays in preventing the degradation of steroid hormones into toxic and cancer-promoting metabolites known as "hormone transients." Their stated goal was "to investigate if hormone transients resulting by e.g. electron emission can be regenerated."

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!" - Upton Sinclair, anti-fascist, anti-imperialist American author who wrote in the early 20th century
"No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable...for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death." - President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when children die or are disabled from vaccine injuries.
"The AAPleadership knows very well that vaccines cause autism. We need not wasteanymore efforts in trying to educate them; we need to indict them." - Dr David Ayoub
"When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses ... the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker, a raving lunatic." - Dresden James
"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." - George Orwell
"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." - Lord Acton
Everybody is well aware of the fear-based, 24/7 media freak-out over the 150 cases of red measles in the US, an unreported number of which had already been fully or partially vaccinated against measles. Some of them may possibly have been exposed to a recent vaccinee who was still actively shedding the live virus from that inoculation.

No conscientious truth-telling person in a position of authority has been allowed to come forward with all the facts that we need to know before ignorant non-scientist legislators go off half-cocked and pass laws demanding that every child everywhere be forced to get every CDC-recommended shots that keep the "well-child" clinics humming (despite the fact that the "crisis" is only about measles).

The blitz has all the markings of an orchestrated campaign, perhaps a good example of "crisis capitalism" revealed to us in Naomi Klein's seminal work, "The Shock Doctrine". Whomever the hidden persuaders are, we know who will benefit from the freak-out. They are the Big Pharma megacorporations, their shareholders and others who are trying to shine up the honor of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Practice, and other medical trade organizations, all of which are highly dependent on Big Pharma's largesse (in the form of advertising revenues and financial support for their medical conventions).

Comment: Is is becoming clear that the vaccines are not working and are more dangerous than the disease itself. BigPharma realizes that the news is spreading fast and is doing everything it deems necessary to manage public perception. Don't be fooled!!

Half a century too late! The U.S. government is poised to withdraw longstanding warnings about cholesterol in your diet

The nation's top nutrition advisory panel has decided to drop its caution about eating cholesterol-laden food, a move that could undo almost 40 years of government warnings about its consumption.

Time to put eggs back on the menu!!
The group's finding that cholesterol in the diet need no longer be considered a "nutrient of concern" stands in contrast to the committee's findings five years ago, the last time it convened. During those proceedings, as in previous years, the panel deemed the issue of "excess dietary cholesterol" a public health concern. The most current finding was discussed at the group's last meeting.

The new view on cholesterol in the diet does not reverse warnings about high levels of "bad" cholesterol in the blood, which have been linked to heart disease. Moreover, some experts warned that people with particular health problems, such as diabetes, should continue to avoid cholesterol-rich diets.

But the finding, which may offer a measure of relief to breakfast diners who prefer eggs, follows an evolution of thinking among many nutritionists who now believe that for a healthy adult cholesterol intake may not significantly impact the level of cholesterol in the blood or increase the risk of heart disease. The greater danger, according to this line of thought, lies in foods heavy with trans fats and saturated fats.

Comment: Sounds like they're trying very hard to save face! Last year, mainstream science finally admitted its big fat mistake:
The U.S. was a key player in promoting the cholesterol myth that has been the ruin of the world's health population. It advocated studies and health policies that are responsible for the world's epidemic of heart disease by promoting inflammatory carbohydrates as a replacement of anti-inflammatory animal fats. The science behind this simple and common sense concept is irrefutable. Read The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz for an in-depth analysis.

Indulging in a 30-minute power nap can help restore the damage caused by having too little sleep, a new study has today revealed
Indulging in a power nap can repair the damage caused by a lack of sleep, new research today claims.

Having a 30-minute snooze can help relieve stress and bolster the immune systems by restoring hormones and proteins to normal levels.

Scientists hope their findings will help shift workers and those suffering insomnia, by mitigating the damage caused by too few hours sleep.

Sleep deprivation not only puts people at increased risk of suffering accidents, but they are also more likely to develop chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and depression.

There are no shortcuts in home canning

pressure cooker
Home canning is a great way to preserve food. It's an old-fashioned skill that has undergone a lot of research, resulting in modern updates.

Sometimes people are resistant to these updates. When I recently published my book, The Organic Canner, I can't tell you how many emails I received telling me, for example, that a pressure canner isn't necessary. That the reader's grandma used a water bath canner for everything and she lived to the ripe old age of 114. That by my adherence to the guidelines set forth by the USDA, I'm "selling out" and kowtowing to the government. One person even wrote that he "used to read my website but no longer would" since my book followed the USDA recommendations for canning.

There's a very good reason that I adhere to those guidelines. To do otherwise could be deadly.

SIDS death plausibly linked to vaccines in a 4-month-old baby boy

The grief and responsibility parents feel after losing their child to vaccines is unimaginable and extremely traumatic. Many parents regret not researching vaccines before trusting others to make that decision for them. This mother received proof her son Nicholas plausibly died from the vaccines and she wants to remind parents how important it is to be your own advocate and to do your own research.

Her experience leads to this simple reminder, that if you rely on someone else to make these decisions for you, putting your child's life in their hands, you could pay the ultimate price of losing them.

This tragic and true story is written in honor of Nicholas Lee Copenhaver (March 7, 2013 - July 15, 2013). He passed away less than 3 days after receiving the 4 month vaccines. His death was ruled SIDS on the autopsy report. At the time the autopsy was done, the pathologist was unaware he had been recently vaccinated because he was not told.

In a later report requested by the mother to file a vaccine injury claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the neuropathologist clearly stated that, in his opinion, vaccines were the likely cause of his death. He does state in the neuropathology report that he was unaware of the vaccines at the time of the autopsy.

Is a forced vaccination agenda behind the measles hysteria?

Several months ago there was a measles outbreak among the Amish where 383 people were infected, and (as usual) nobody came even close to death. The media hardly expressed concern except to criticize the Amish for not being vaccinated. Now comes the Disneyland infection and suddenly it's a national security threat. The issue of mandating vaccines is being broadcast widely, almost as if we are dealing with a conspiracy of creating a crisis in order to justify squashing the anti-vaccine movement.

Why should the issues of measles raise such a fuss? Measles isn't even lethal except to the few people who are very old or immunocompromised and at risk from dozens of other minor threats. I can remember the time when we used to visit the homes of people with the Measles or Chicken Pox in order to get infected early and gain permanent immunity after recovery. It was widely known that this builds the immune system's ability to handle diseases in general.

Big Pharma 'repatenting' raises prices of top drugs by more than 6 times

What happens when mega pharmaceutical companies get their new grip around one of the oldest asthma medications that many rely on for daily use? Based on historical data, it appears that one of the first action items is to exponentially increase the price of the same medication without any actual advancements of any kind. It's a process that is involved with 'repatenting.'

The art of repatenting is one that massive corporations absolutely love. When the drug companies own the patent rights to a formula, even if it is virtually the same as a generic one or has been sold for far less over the last several decades, they can charge you (and your insurance company) whatever they want.

And in the case of the highly popular asthma drug albuterol, even the New York Times has reported on the absurd price increase following its 'repatenting.'

Spontaneous DNA mutation causes miracle cure

It's a medical miracle. A woman who had been suffering from an extremely rare disease for 50 years has experienced a spontaneous cure as a result of changes in her DNA. Doctors described the chances of such an event as "astronomically low" and the equivalent of winning the top lottery prize.

The lucky lady is now 58 and her identity is unknown. Before her sudden cure she had a condition known as "WHIM syndrome" which caused serious outbreaks of warts and infections. WHIM syndrome is a rare immunodeficiency disorder.

WHIM is an acronym derived from the main features of the condition - Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Infections, and Myelokathexis (retention of neutrophils in the bone marrow). It usually presents in early childhood.

Recurrent bacterial infections and cellulitis are common symptoms. Sufferers frequently develop widespread warts that are treatment resistant. In extreme cases potentially cancerous genital warts can occur.

Doctors believe WHIM syndrome is an inherited condition caused by mutations in the CXCR4 gene. Early diagnosis is essential. Treatments include G-CSF (which stimulates the production of neutrophils); intravenous immunoglobulins; prophylactic antibiotics to prevent infection; and continued surveillance of the patient for skin lesions.

The syndrome arises when patients have a defect in a tiny section of their DNA. As a result, any new immune system cells forming in the bone marrow remain there instead of circulating in the body. This opens a patient with WHIM syndrome up to serious risk of infection and sufferers are especially vulnerable to the human papillomavirus (HPV) which not only causes warts but leads to higher incidence of cancer.
