ABC 7 News in Los Angeles is reporting that federal health officials want to force a 26-year-old grad student, whose younger sister was one of the confirmed cases of measles caught recently at Disneyland, into a quarantine. Ylsa Tellez does not have the measles, and is not sick.

So why do health officials want to force her into quarantine? Because she is not vaccinated against the measles. She could reportedly avoid the quarantine if she gets the vaccine.
"(They were) saying I need to get vaccinated and I need to be quarantined, otherwise I'm going to go to jail or something, or I'm going to get a misdemeanor," said Ylsa.

Ylsa says she refuses to be a prisoner in her own home despite the possible quarantine order. Ylsa's mother is also defending her daughter.

"It's not nice when my daughter is threatened like this because she's not even sick," said Myrna Tellez. (Source.)

Comment: There may come a time when forced quarantine will be considered a luxury. There have already been instances of forced chemotherapy. Forced vaccination may be next.

The business of sickness, and why we must protest until it's stopped

Health Business

Sickness is a great business, and the pharmaceutical industry knows this very well. They would have you to believe they are in the health business, but they are not. They are in the business of sickness. And, judging from a business perspective, it is brilliant, but at the same time, corrupt.

They are not isolated in the business of sickness; many other associates are involved: the medical system, drug companies with their research departments, and government to supervise and create the sort of treadmill the populous run on: symptomatic treatment, while avoiding cures and prosecuting those who would dare try.

As a society, we are led to believe that everything is not so bad, and we rationalize this theory by comparing ourselves to those who are worse off. It is an outright lie. We are standing on a precipice of no return, and the outcome will affect everyone on the planet. Things just could not be worse.

Obtaining adequate sleep during middle-age predicts improved mental functioning in later years

Alluring new research suggests that obtaining adequate amounts of sleep during middle age may help to maintain mental functions 30 years later.

Researchers have known that obtaining appropriate amounts of sleep in young and middle-aged people helps memory and learning. Also, that as a person ages and enters into their seventh, eighth, and ninth decades, they don't sleep as much or as well - and sleep is no longer linked so much to memory.

Michael K. Scullin, Ph.D., director of Baylor University's Sleep Neuroscience and Cognition Laboratory, reviewed 50 years of sleep research and discovered some interesting findings.

"We came across studies that showed that sleeping well in middle age predicted better mental functioning 28 years later." Therefore, improving sleep early in life might delay, or even reverse, age-related changes in memory and thinking.

Comment: Getting enough sleep is important for people of all ages, as research has shown that sleep critically affects childhood brain development, and that inadequate sleep in teens causes low mood, poor health and learning. In adults, poor sleep has been linked to depression, chronic pain and can actually cause the brain to shrink. For tips on how to improve sleep quality see:

Disneyland measles outbreak now tied to 70 people

A measles outbreak traced to Disney theme parks in California led to warnings against visiting the happiest place on Earth if tourists or their children have not been vaccinated against the highly contagious respiratory disease that has sickened 70 people.

New infections linked to the theme parks emerged Wednesday in the outbreak that has spread to five U.S. states and Mexico, though the vast majority - 62 - occurred in California.

People who have not received the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine are susceptible to contracting the highly contagious illness and should avoid Disney "for the time being," state epidemiologist Gil Chavez said.

The same holds true for crowded places with a high concentration of international travelers, such as airports, Chavez said. People who are vaccinated don't need to take such precautions, he said.


Disneyland Resorts spokeswoman Suzi Brown said officials agreed with the advice that "it's absolutely safe to visit if you're vaccinated."

Destroying African agriculture with GMOs: U2's Bono partners with Monsanto

As his career continues to free fall into total irrelevance, pop star "Bono" of the rock group U2 has announced his support for a U.S.- backed plan to rape and pillage Africa by stealing its land and agricultural systems and replacing them with corporate-owned GMOs (genetically-modified organisms) and chemicals.

At the recent G8 Summit held at Camp David in Maryland, the Obama regime met with private industry leaders to announce the launch of the "New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition," a thinly-veiled Green Revolution 2.0 that aims to uproot autonomous family farming systems throughout Africa and replace them with toxic monoculture systems controlled by multinational corporations like Monsanto.

Africa

Egypt and Madagascar are the only two countries in Africa to ban GMO. Any agricultural imports to Egypt must have a certificate from the country of origin that the product is not genetically modified and the rule will also apply to Egyptian exports. Madagascar banned growing or importing GMO foods due to concerns over the effect on human health and environment. In Algeria both the planting and distribution of GMO foods is illegal although import laws are lax. Other countries such as Kenya, Lesotho, Ethiopia, Angola, Malawai, Mozambique and Zimbabwe have some limited restrictions in place to ban GMO imports but with many exceptions and critics claim most of the laws are not enforced.

Surprise! Monsanto once again developing herbicide resistant wheat

© examiner.com
Over a decade after consumer opposition halted multinational agrichemical business Monsanto's plans to develop genetically engineered (GE) herbicide-resistant wheat, the company is trying again. This time, Monsanto's goal is to create wheat that is resistant to three different herbicides; glyphosate, glufosinate, and dicamba. Although over 90% of corn, soybean, and cotton grown in the United States are GE, no GE wheat is currently allowed to be planted.

In 2013, a farmer in Oregon discovered the presence of Monsanto's original Roundup-Ready wheat, developed to be resistant to glyphosate, in his field despite the company's plans to abandon the strain and claims to have destroyed the crop a decade earlier. The company had restarted extensive field trials back in 2011. An investigation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) determined that the contamination was an "isolated incident." It was unable to determine exactly how the wheat came to grow in the Oregon farmer's field.

Comment: It really is no surprise that Monsanto is back 'reintroducing' herbicide resistant GMO wheat. It has been about a year since the last 'mention' of it and there will be no additional oversight or regulation, by any organization, not the USDA, FDA or EPA mainly because federal regulators, like the USDA, are on the same team as Monsanto!
The greater truth is that Monsanto is itself a corporation of global sabotage that destroys agriculture, contaminates the planet with genetic pollution, threatens farmers with lawsuits for planting common seeds, and then blames activists when its own dangerous experiments go haywire.
An even greater concern, which is not mentioned in the article, is that GMO wheat can silence human genes, and cause early death!

'The Canadian Problem': Mainstream media reports higher risk for seasonal flu in previously vaccinated

Canadian mainstream media has taken a bold new step - admitting the problem that frequent vaccines are creating a cascade of more illnesses. And not just a greater number and frequency of illnesses but even lower protection against the very diseases the vaccines were supposed to protect against.

CBC News reports that it was originally called "the Canadian problem" - i.e. the problem of higher risk of pandemic flu illnesses among those who get the seasonal flu shot the previous year, or those who get frequent flu shots. They note that the problem is now seen in other countries such as Hong Kong, Japan and the U.S.

From CBC News:
People who receive flu vaccines year after year can sometimes show reduced protection, an effect that Canadian infectious disease specialists say muddies public health messages for annual flu vaccine campaigns.

During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, researchers at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control originally thought seasonal flu shots from 2008 might offer extra protection against the new pandemic strain. They were puzzled to find instead, seasonal flu vaccination almost doubled the risk of infection with pandemic flu.

Fish oil sold in New Zealand is actually more like snake oil

Fishy: A University of Auckland study has found the bulk of fish oil pills sold in NZ are misleading consumers. The take home? Just eat fish.
The bulk of fish oil supplements sold in New Zealand and Australia are misleading consumers with false claims, a study has found.

A University of Auckland study found the bulk of supplements sold in the two countries were almost a third lower in omega-3 fatty acids than their labels claimed.

Only three of the 32 fish oil supplements analysed by the scientists contained the concentrations of fatty acids listed on the label.

The rest had on average 68 per cent of the claimed content.

The University of Auckland's Professor Wayne Cutfield said the research team found the price of each supplement made no difference to the quality of the product.

"You might think that a more expensive fish oil is less likely to be degraded," he said.

"That is not the case, there is no relationship with price."

Although the researchers did not publish the brand names of the fish oil supplements that were analysed, Cutfield said almost half were encapsulated, labelled and marketed from Australia.

Most fish oil products are sourced from deep sea fish from the west coast of South America.

The researchers found the majority of the supplements tested were considerably oxidised - the oils were on the way to becoming rancid.

The active ingredients in omega-3 were fragile and prone to oxidisation, which could occur on the long trip from South America, Cutfield said.

Pesticide drift: USDA says "Yes" to Dicamba -tolerant crops

Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved the sale and planting of Monsanto's genetically engineered dicamba-tolerant soybeans and cotton. This approval follows that of 2,4-D tolerant soybeans and corn, billed as the next generation of herbicide-tolerant crops to tackle glyphosate (Roundup)-resistant weeds. Dicamba-tolerant soy and cotton are simply the latest example of USDA's allegiance to the biotechnology industry and dependence upon chemical solutions. This continues the disturbing trend of more herbicide-tolerant crop approvals taking place under President Obama's watch.

Once again, the USDA has neglected to look at the full range of impacts associated with these GMO herbicide-tolerant crops. Instead the agency has opted for a short-term solution to superweeds that have become resistant to herbicides because of previous approvals of GMOs, thereby perpetuating and escalating chemical use.

Scientists warn soy speeds up the spread of breast cancer cells

Previous reports by several scientists in both reputable publications and cancer foundations have stressed the importance of soy to reduce breast cancer. Meanwhile there has been plenty of research to contradict these claims and completely oppose them. Researchers at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York studying invasive breast cancer are warning women that adding soy to your diet will speed up the rate at which breast cancer cells spread.

The Chinese did not eat unfermented soybeans as they did other legumes such as lentils because the soybean contains large quantities of natural toxins or "antinutrients". First among them are potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion.

These inhibitors are large, tightly folded proteins that are not completely deactivated during ordinary cooking. They can produce serious gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake. In test animals, diets high in trypsin inhibitors cause enlargement and pathological conditions of the pancreas, including cancer.
