Essential oils that stop cancer in its tracks

Even scientists now recognize the power agents that exist within some essential oils which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. Their disease-preventing ability is no longer doubted, especially for cancer. A healthy body, from head to foot, typically has a frequency ranging from 62 to 78 MHz, while disease begins at 58Hz. During some testing with frequency and the frequency of essential oils it was measured that: Holding a cup of coffee dropped one man's frequency from 66 Hz to 58 MHz in just 3 seconds. It took three days for his frequency to return to normal.

Other studies show that: Negative thoughts lower our frequency on average 12 MHz. Positive thoughts raises our frequency on average 10 MHz.

Studying some of the most popular essential oils in current use, such as mint, ginger, lemon, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, chamomile, thyme, rose, and cinnamon, researchers sought out to discover how these oils may combat cancer. They did so by testing antibacterial potency as well as in vitro toxicology against human cancer cell lines.

Judge halts food behemoth merger: People need real food justice on all levels

In fear of rising food prices and more

© Unknown
A judge recently halted the merging of two of the largest food corporations in the world - Sysco and US Foods. Think of Sysco and US Foods like Comcast and Time Warner Cable. Were they to merge, the global market would be under the control of two corporations who already distribute 'food' to the masses which likely causes diabetes, obesity, digestive disorders, and neurological disease - only with twice the power to do so.

Tree-mendous health benefit of trees

Scientists discover trees are secret to youth and money. A study of people living in urban areas of Toronto found that having ten more trees in your street benefits your health as much as being seven years younger, or $10,000 richer.

Planting ten more trees on your street gives a health benefit comparable to having $10,000 higher income, moving to a richer neighborhood or being seven years younger, say a team of scientists who quantified the relationship between individual trees, and an individual's health.

Garlic may be effective against multi-drug resistant strains of pathogenic urinary tract bacteria

Garlic is one of many anti-viral culinary herbs
Garlic extract may be an effective weapon against multi-drug resistant strains of pathogenic bacteria associated with urinary tract infections (UTI), according to a recent study published in the Pertanika Journal of Tropical Agricultural Science.

Conducted by researchers at the Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences in India, the study found that "even crude extracts of [garlic] showed good activity against multidrug resistant strains where antibiotic therapy had limited or no effect. This provides hope for developing alternative drugs which may be of help in fighting the menace of growing antibacterial resistance," the team states.

Urinary tract infection is the second most common infectious disease encountered in community practice. Worldwide, about 150 million people are diagnosed each year with UTI, at a total treatment cost in the billions of dollars. Although UTI is usually treated with antibiotics, "emerging antimicrobial resistance compels us to look back into traditional medicines or herbal products, which may provide appropriate/acceptable alternative solutions," the authors argue.

New Federal Vaccine Mandate proposed: All shots required, no parental exemptions

Florida Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (D-24) has introduced a bill, House Resolution H.R. 2232, that will require all states to mandate all students enrolled in public schools receive all the vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Policy, a federal body compromised of vaccine-industry representatives, which includes vaccines for HPV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Paul Offit's rota virus vaccine, annual flu shots, and dozens of others. States that do not comply will not be eligible for grants for "preventive health services" under the Public Health Services Act.

Comment: The following article was published back in 2009, it is apparent, after the recent California SB277 Vaccine Bill Passed that the ACIP will have it's way:
Profits, Not Science, Motivate Vaccine Mandates

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a group of individuals hand-picked by members of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommends which vaccines are administered to American children. Working mainly in secret, ACIP members frequently have financial links to vaccine manufacturers. Dependent on federal CDC funding, administrators of state vaccination programs follow CDC directives by influencing state legislators to mandate new vaccines. Federal vaccine funds can be denied to states that do not "vigorously enforce" mandatory vaccination laws.

Conversely, the CDC offers financial bounties to state departments of health for each "fully vaccinated" child. In a recent year, the Ohio Department of Health received $1 million in such CDC bonus payments.

Asbestos fibers found in children's toys manufactured in China

Asbestos fibers have been found in crayons and children's toys sold in the US, according to a new report from a health advocacy group.

The EWG Action Fund is calling for a ban on asbestos in consumer products after it found the substance in four out of 28 brands of crayons, according to a report released by the group on Wednesday.

Two brands of toy crime-lab kits of the 21 which were tested were also reported to have contained the carcinogenic substances. They had been purchased from ToysRUs.com and Amazon.com. Asbestos was found in the kits' fingerprint dusting powders, and these products had higher concentrations than the tested brand of crayon did.

Comment: This is not the first time that toxic substances have been found in products manufactured in China. More worrisome is that there are probably many more instances of contaminated products that are not being disclosed to the public.

Information theory: An excess of 'useless' information weakens the immune system, 'making people prone to cancer'

Image
The warning came at a conference in Tomsk from Heidelberg University professor Julia Kzhyshkowska.

Dr Kzhyshkowska, of the Blood Transfusion and Clinical Immunology Institute, Mannheim Medical Faculty, was addressing a congress on links between cancer tumours and 'microenvironments'.

A factor in causing cancer is 'unrecognised chronic stress', participants were told. This can be the result of an uncontrolled flow of information, quite often negative, which faces people in the modern world on a daily basis.

People don't think they need to protect themselves from it as they don't see it as a threat, yet it should be seen as a factor in causing cancer alongside genetic predisposition, the effect of pathogenic organisms (viruses and bacteria) and environmental aspects.

'In fact, the influence of the information field is more dangerous than ecological factors,' said Dr Kzhyshkowska. 'We can measure and control ecological factors - but we don't know what to do with mountains of excess information that scares and disturbs us- and worries us with whatever extra possibilities it brings along.

'The information field speculates on peoples psyche and does it successfully because most of us cannot filter waste information.'

The massive fitness trend that's not actually healthy at all

© physicalliving.com
The world can be a crazy place, we all know that. And giving in to the fear that is endlessly manufactured by the media is a constant temptation on the path to fitness greatness. It's also true that sometimes sh!t gets real, and we need to be prepared to adapt instantly. Why? Because...

Life Is a Battle!

But (and it's a big fat booty butt) just because life is a battle doesn't mean you have to destroy yourself every time you go to the gym. Any serious athlete knows that rest, recovery, and periodization (smartly modifying intensity based on goals, performance, and ability) are absolutely crucial to optimal performance (aka kicking ass).

There is a massive trend in the fitness industry to glorify exercise as an all-out war on the body. I call it the militarization of fitness—all the boot camps, Marine-inspired workouts, ridiculously intense body building routines, and general glorification of pain. Even our recovery and regeneration techniques are prioritized by how painful they are. (Got a knot in your hip flexor? Go roll that sh!t with a baseball!)

This trend is a symptom of a much larger disease. We live in a culture obsessed with aggression, and it has found its way into every facet of our lives, even our workouts.

Curcumin's role in the fight against deadly viruses

The global race for an Ebola drug or vaccine is on, with hundreds of millions of dollars of resources invested, but could our best bet already be hiding in plain sight within our spice racks?

A new study published in the journal In Vivo titled,"Curcumin Suppression of Cytokine Release and Cytokine Storm. A Potential Therapy for Patients with Ebola and Other Severe Viral Infections," has raised an intriguing possibility: that one of the world's most prized spices could provide an effective treatment against deadly viruses like Ebola that have no known conventional treatment to date.

Turmeric is about 3-5% curcumin by dry weight. It is one of the most extensively researched substances on the planet, with over 1540 studies available to view on our database alone. Amazingly, it has been identified to have potential or actual therapeutic value in over 600 health conditions. The discovery that it may also be an important anti-Ebola agent while new, is not surprising, given how profoundly it appears to ameliorate hundreds of causes of physical suffering, many of them associated with opportunistic infections with viruses, parasites and bacteria.
