Changing your metabolism may be the key to cancer prevention and cure

Each day, some 1,600 people die of cancer in the United States. That number goes up 10-fold, up to 21,000 if you include the global population.

While conventional medicine has little to offer outside the standard "cut, poison, burn" approach, new evidence suggests simple dietary modifications could effectively both treat and prevent the majority of these cancers.

Travis Christofferson is the author of a phenomenal book called "Tripping Over the Truth: The Return of the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Illuminates a New and Hopeful Path to a Cure."

I read 150 books last year and this was one of the best. In my view, it's required reading for anyone who has cancer or knows someone who has cancer. This book has inspired me to passionately review the medical literature on mitochondrial metabolism for a book that will be published next year.

Comment: There have been many breakthroughs in cancer research, but it seems clear that the medical industry will never find a cure for cancer because the cancer as a business model is far too lucrative. And unfortunately it's existing "best" treatments like chemotherapy don't work, and may even make cancer worse.

California's medical tyranny: Mandatory vaccines & discrimination harm everyone

© Live.Learn.Evolve
California health authorities are increasingly applying police state measures by forcing vaccinations and practicing genetic discrimination - violating constitutional principles and privacy rights.

The state's schools are now being penalized financially for not enforcing mandatory vaccinations; meanwhile children are being expelled for having a genetic predisposition to certain diseases - even when they don't actually have the diseases in question.

Despite much controversy and outrage over California's vaccination laws, it seems that now health officials are emboldened to push even more authoritarian measures regarding the 'health' of the state's citizens.

Comment: Further reading:
Why are we seeing this unprecedented gutting of informed consent rights and vaccine licensing standards in America? One big reason is that during the past three decades, while the majority of us have been struggling to get an education and work two jobs to pay rent or a mortgage and put food on the table for our children, Congress has directed federal health agencies to create a business partnership with the pharmaceutical industry. Politicians have given vaccine extremists and profiteers the money and power to do whatever they want to do to the people, without any legal accountability for their actions, including forcing us to buy and use dozens of doses of vaccines or be denied a school education, medical care and employment.

California vaccine controversy reignites over anti-vaccine billboards

An anti-vaccine billboard, paid for by the Council for Vaccine Safety, across the street from Hoover Elementary School in North Fair Oaks on Wednesday, Feb. 3 2016.
California may have closed a chapter in its bitter fight over mandatory vaccines for children, but a new billboard campaign by opponents of the state's pro-vaccination law shows the controversy is far from over.

Billboards questioning the safety of vaccines have popped up over the past couple of months from Berkeley and San Francisco to North Fair Oaks, a largely Latino community in southern San Mateo County. More went up in January in the San Jose area to coincide with Super Bowl 50, which has drawn tens of thousands of visitors to the South Bay.

Comment: Why wouldn't these billboards belong in neighborhood areas or next to schools? There is pro-vaccine propaganda everywhere. What's wrong with having information about the negative consequences of vaccines in public places? Could it be because Corporate lobbying groups like ALEC are behind a mandatory vaccine agenda, and California is ground zero:
Over the last several months, Americans have witnessed an increase in media propaganda regarding the "dangers" of "anti-vaxxers," the "proven science of vaccines," and the "tragedies" that ensue from the failure to vaccinate.
That propaganda blitz has resulted in massive hysteria stemming from similar levels of ignorance.

Also resulting from the push by Big Pharma-funded corporate media outlets is the emotional and panicked campaign of pro-vaxxers, vaccine pushers, and adherents to the relatively recent new religion of "scientism" - the religious belief in anything labeled as science or scientific, regardless of whether or not that concept directly contradicts observable reality and experience or even regardless of whether or not it is actually scientific.

The so-called vaccine debate - which is not truly a debate since a debate requires the participation of two opposing sides - is generally nothing more than a shouting and shaming campaign against parents who have come to the conclusion that vaccines are not safe, effective, or neither.

Awaiting release in Florida: GM mosquitoes with possible link to the Zika Virus

As the World Health Organization prepares to convene an emergency committee under international health regulations on Monday February 1, many are now wondering exactly where the Zika virus came from.

Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Zika went from its first discovered case in 1947 and sporadic appearances up until last year, the virus is now in outbreak stage with WHO officials concerned that it may become a pandemic. World health researchers seem perplexed as to the genesis of the virus or at least, the sudden appearance and rapid spread of it in 2015.

Boost attention skills: Learn new information or use existing knowledge in new ways

Simply learning new information or using existing knowledge in new ways can help boost attentional skills, a new study finds.

It's just the same way that young children learn to 'train' their brains: they learn new things about the world.

Acquiring knowledge and then thinking about how it fits into what we already know helps boost our attention.

The study itself used objects on a computer screen.

People grouped them into categories while researchers measured their brain waves.

'Kohl's Cares' is using your donations to fund vaccines

A popular department store chain encourages its customers into believing "Kohl's Cares" with its namesake program designed to help children. However, these fundraising efforts seem to be aimed at vaccinating children across the United States.

Since its inception, Kohl's Cares has raised $257 million with its popular merchandising campaign, which uses stuffed animals, books, and other children's items to raise money in the name of charity. Kohl's operates almost 1200 stores in 49 states. [1]

Sadly, much of this money has been used to fund vaccines.

Who launched the fake Zika epidemic story? WHO, that's who

This is an article that explains a great deal—but, with apologies, it involves a line of reasoning, in order to reach a conclusion. That means some readers (not my regular readers) may find it odd. Some readers with short attention spans may suddenly want to switch to a wrestling show or a shopping network. To them I say: give this a try; it does have a payoff; it has its own kind of shock and surprise; explosions do go off in the mind; it is like a ten-car pile-up on the interstate in the fog, late at night; and there is a very nasty plot.

Out of nowhere, a month ago, we were told there was an outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil: over 4,000 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment.

The Brazilian researchers then went in and took a closer look at that figure. They walked it back and said there were, at best, only 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly.

Going from 4,000 cases to 404 cases was a revelation. It means there is no reason to claim, so far, that there is an epidemic of microcephaly.

Comment: As with all public health scares from Ebola, to SARS, to swine flu and beyond, it's imperative to have a peek behind the curtain and not just take what the so-called health authorities say as gospel truth.


We are living in the age of Aluminium: Mineral waters can help you detox from Aluminium toxicity

© Science Daily
Aluminium symbol from the periodic table. Human exposure to aluminum has increased significantly in recent times, experts say.
"What seems to have happened is that aluminium was not bioavailable in the world's biota until early in the industrial revolution, and so, it just had no place in any biochemical reaction that was normal...Where it does occur now...we live in what's called the age of aluminium, it shows up in so many products. Again, it's great stuff to make airplanes and computers out of, but it shows up in our food...our water...air...in our medicines...our antacids...So we increasingly have this compound that is not part of any normal biochemical process, on Earth...that now can only go in and do havoc, which is exactly what it does. It causes all kinds of unusual biochemical reactions in the body, including the brain."Dr. Chris Shaw, a Neuroscientist and professor at the University of British Columbia (source)
Aluminium is a common metal found in the environment that generally is not toxic. But the amount of aluminium now added to a variety of everyday foods and products, and used in industrial processes, has created an aluminium overload that proves toxic to our bodies.

Frankenfish update: Genetically modified salmon is stuck in a labelling limbo

© beepeeking.com
Just two months after the Food and Drug Administration approved genetically modified salmon for human consumption, the FDA is now banning the fish until the agency can agree upon how to label it.

Last November, the FDA cleared GM salmon after a 20-year approval process, making salmon the first genetically modified animal slated for human consumption. Under the original provisions of the clearance, the salmon, known as AquAdvantage salmon and produced by the Massachusetts-based AquaBounty Technologies, would not have to be labeled as a GM product. Consumer groups responded with outrage that they might unknowingly consume what they dubbed "Frankenfish."

Medical civil disobedience in America

"There are two types of laws, one is a just law and one is an unjust law. I think we all have moral obligations to obey just laws, on the other hand I think we have moral obligations to disobey unjust laws because noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as cooperation with good." - Martin Luther King Jr.
The People have rallied and petitioned in California to no avail. The mainstream media has stayed silent to parents needs writing stories favoring their admitted drug company sponsors. Highly credible medical and health whistle blowers have been swept under the rug and disrespectfully ignored. Parents who seek alternative solutions beyond toxic chemotherapy for their children with cancer regularly face loss of custody. This is not medical choice.
