New study reluctantly admits: Human blood is not "Roundup Ready"

Much of the focus of late has been on the toxicity of the main ingredient in Roundup 'weedkiller,' namely, glyphosate. And rightly so: far from being 'practically non-toxic,' as advertising copy once bragged,[i] the chemical has recently been shown to exhibit toxicity in the parts-per-trillion concentration range, and is being found literally everywhere: in the water, soil, air, rain and our food. But very little research has been performed on its metabolites and so-called 'inactive ingredients' - until now.

A new study, published in Pesticide Biochemistry and Physiology titled, "The effect of metabolites and impurities of glyphosate on human erythrocytes (in vitro)," reveals that the problem with the growing global contamination of the biosphere with agrichemicals used in the farming of genetically modified foods is far worse than most will either admit or acknowledge.

The researchers describe the background context of their study:
"Today, the dissemination of glyphosate in the environment increases, and humans are permanently exposed to its action. Worstcase scenario provides even ten-fold increase of using a glyphosate in the following years [32]. Considering the widespread and frequent use of glyphosate throughout in world, thus the current risk assessment is important because the exposure will concern not only the users of the preparations containing glyphosate, but also those who do not have direct contact with that herbicide."

Comment: While this study was released back in 2014, it is yet another confirmation that Monsanto is secretly poisoning the population with Roundup. Covering up the toxic effects of their products is nothing new for Monsanto, they're experts at it. And they will continue to claim their products are safe! Hence why so many researchers and consumers are stating: Don't label GMOs: New study shows why Roundup herbicide should be banned.

As if death by multiple poisoning from Glyphosate and Roundup is not enough to get 'so called regulators' like the EPA and the USDA to act. It really comes comes down to consumers making informed decisions. It is important to note that not only do GMO foods contain RoundUp but also, popular foods containing wheat are 'treated' with the herbicide RoundUp just before harvest:
"According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as of 2012, 99 percent of durum wheat, 97 percent of spring wheat, and 61 percent of winter wheat has been doused with Roundup as part of the harvesting process," the post claimed, though a link to these USDA statistics was not provided. One source on that blog post was an article in the Examiner. That article made the same claim about glyphosate, an active ingredient in Monsanto's RoundUp.

The Examiner provided a chart from a USDA database, indicating that indeed, almost all of these types of wheat receive applications of glyphosate, even though there is no RoundUp-resistant wheat that is approved for mainstream use in the United States. According to Examiner, Barley is also treated with RoundUp right before harvest. Curious social media users began wondering what else, besides wheat, might be sprayed with RoundUp just before harvest.

According to Monsanto literature, farmers are encouraged to conduct pre-harvest RoundUp applications on many crops. Monsanto explains how to most efficiently use RoundUp as a pre-harvest treatment of wheat, feed barley, oats, canola, flax, peas, lentils, and dry beans.

What next? WHO set to classify 'aging' as a disease to benefit BigPharma

We have new pharmaceuticals being introduced every year for fictitious and nonsensical diagnoses such as Mathematics Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Orthorexia Nervosa (healthy eating) and so many other inventions called diseases for the sole purpose of selling more drugs. In what many critics are calling lunacy of unimaginable proportions, The World Health Organization (WHO) now plans to lay down the framework that will set the precedent for classifying aging, something that should be embraced and celebrated, into a disease with elaborate protocols expected to be finalized in 2018.

Most people in modern times have been somewhat unanimous that wrinkles, grief and homosexuality are not diseases, although not if you ask the WHO, all of the above may soon be classified as a disease given enough time.

What is considered to be normal and what is considered to be diseased is strongly influenced by historical context. Matters once considered to be diseases are no longer classified as such. For example, when black slaves ran away from plantations they were labeled to suffer from drapetomania and medical treatment was used to try to "cure" them.

Comment: It has become glaringly obvious that the World 'Health' Organization operates primarily for the benefit of BigPharma, which is now unsurprisingly one of the most loathed industries in the U.S.


Laughing at inappropriate things linked to signs of early dementia - study

Although a warped sense of humor may earn you lots of laughs among your equally twisted friends, it could be an early warning sign of dementia, a new study says. The research found that patients began laughing at inappropriate things prior to being diagnosed.

The study, conducted by University College London and published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, questioned the relatives and friends of 48 frontotemporal dementia patients.

The respondents were asked to give examples of inappropriate humor exhibited by their loved ones over the last 15 years - well before any diagnoses. Almost all of the participants said they had noticed a shift in the nine years before their loved ones were diagnosed.

Many said their relatives had begun laughing at tragic events in the media or their personal lives. "These were marked changes - completely inappropriate humor well beyond the realms of even distasteful humor. For example, one man laughed when his wife badly scalded herself," said Dr. Camilla Clark, who was involved in the study.

The wife that scalded herself said that "early on, [my husband] laughed very loudly at things that were only mildly funny, flippant or over the top; now [he will] laugh all the time at things that are not particularly funny and will say 'I'm laughing and I'm not sure why I'm laughing.'"

Frankincense: A psychoactive antidepressant

Burning Frankincense in the form of incense has been a big part of religious and other cultural ceremonies for a millennium. The resin from the Boswellia tree also known as Frankincense or olibanum is believed to be an aroma that will help your soul reach spiritual exaltation.

Frankincense resin is mentioned in many different ancient texts including the old and new testament and is said to have mystical capabilities, a belief that has been carried forward to the spiritual practices of today.

Recently a team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem did a study to see what the effects were of this age-old practice. They studied Frankincense to determine why it has psychoactive effects.

Hillary Clinton's evil jab: More vaccine propaganda

In stark contrast to candidate Clinton in 2008 when questions over the safety and effectiveness of vaccines were just coming to the political consciousness of the American people in large numbers, Hillary has now become a vocal cheerleader of Big Pharma and vaccinations.

While her opinion is odious enough on its face, it is quite the change from the opinion she held as a candidate in 2008 when she stated that there was the possibility that vaccines were linked to autism.

Comment: From the article linked above: Hillary Clinton Says All Kids Should Get Vaccinated—But She Wasn't Always So Certain
Clinton has a long history of supporting efforts to get children vaccinated. In 1993, she spearheaded the Childhood Immunization Initiative and the Vaccines for Children program, which aimed to make vaccines affordable. Yet, she also has been a strong voice for families dealing with autism, calling in 2007 for $700 million per year to fund research and education. Her comments in 2008 reflected a certain tension to advocating on both fronts.

In fact, she wrote in a campaign questionnaire that she was committed to finding out the causes of autism, including "possible environmental causes like vaccines."[1]

Comment: New poll sadly shows only 60% of Americans think Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy and dishonest
You'd truly have to be a certified zombie, or living your life entirely under a rock, to not recognize how completely shady and corrupt this woman is.


DNA from newborn blood samples being sold for research

Big Brother Alive and Well In California

Every year, millions of newborns throughout the U.S. get a small heel prick, a blood sample to screen for congenital abnormalities. But what happens to that blood sample after those tests? If you were born in California 1983 or later, Big Brother (the California Department of Public Health - CDPH) knows what happened to them.

15 facts people should know about fluoride


15 Facts Most People Don't Know About Fluoride
Advocates of fluoride say its use in municipal water systems poses no adverse health concerns, however results from investigations clearly state the opposite. There has been considerable research done on fluoride regarding cancer, birth defects, and risks to the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and urinary systems, however, very little has been done on its neurological effects.

There are now serious facts about the health risks regarding fluoridation which can no longer be ignored, and as a result, the practice itself is being questioned by most of the world.

The EPA & Monsanto - A love story

It would be easy to believe the Environmental Protection Agency's mission "to protect human health and the environment" — after all, environment is right, smack in the government agency's very name — but that would be quite the mistake. In fact, judging the EPA's magical manipulation of testing and data concerning glyphosate — the chief ingredient in Monsanto's weedkiller, Roundup — it's arguable the government 'watchdog' functions primarily as a de facto propaganda division for the agrichemical behemoth.

While the World Health Organization's classification earlier this year of glyphosate as a Group 2A probable carcinogen — probable cause of cancer in the same category as creosote, among other noxious substances — is well-known and accepted, Monsanto's leverage means Roundup isn't likely to be pulled from store shelves in the U.S. any time soon. That leverage, however entertaining the resulting propaganda might be, bears potentially harmful consequences.

Comment: While the corporate criminality of biotech corporations like Monsanto and EPA collusion are nothing new, the evidence keeps mounting about how regulatory bodies like the EPA are willing to warp science and the truth to keep consumers in the dark and destroy human health and the environment in the process!


Vaccine activism victory: Parents stop Indiana's unethical HPV vaccine push

It took exactly one month to the day for an activated Indiana population to turn back efforts by their state's health department to coerce and pressure parents, outside of law, into having their children receive the potentially dangerous human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV). Independent health journalist Jefferey Jaxen was contacted by two separate families telling of letters they received by their state's health departments regarding their child's HPV vaccine status. An article chronicling the incidents was immediately published to raise awareness on October 5th, 2015.

Investigation revealed that the official health department letters received did not state whether or not the HPV vaccine was mandatory. This grey area created confusion and anger as many states are currently moving to pass mandatory vaccination laws with potentially severe penalties. What was more striking was the fact that the children, who were named in the official state letters, were found because of their inclusion into a vaccine tracking list. The problem was that the parents never knowingly consented to their child's participation and inclusion onto this list. Investigations revealed that every state has a vaccine tracking list, or immunization information system, for children. With each step to coerce parents, omit vital information, and unethically push vaccines on children, states are losing major integrity.

Comment: Kudos to these parents for standing up to the dictates of nanny state - their actions may have saved countless lives:
SOTT Exclusive: The origins of the HPV vaccine - A case of corruption in science

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is possibly the most dangerous one on the market today. Supposedly designed to possibly prevent infections by certain types of human papillomavirus associated with the development of cervical cancer, genital warts, and other cancers, according to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System), there were 41,236 adverse effects including 1,373 people disabled, 233 deaths, 705 life threatening cases and, 5,575 serious adverse effects up until September 2015.

Sott Exclusive: The way the cookie crumbles and how to deal with canine and feline allergies

© unknown
Recently I got an invitation to appear on a local TV show about animals to talk about canine allergies and the role nutrition plays in their etiology. After I had seen the questions I was going to be presented with, I was delighted at the opportunity to share what I have learned over the years with a wider audience. Sometimes just a simple change of lifestyle is enough to cure many health problems in our pets and I am always happy to share this information with anyone who cares to listen.

Unfortunately it wasn't going to be. The way the cookie crumbles (or I should say the processed food pellet) in today's world is quite different: a few days before the show I was informed that the sponsors of the show (who happen to be a local distributor of well known pet food brand) insisted that I was an inappropriate choice of veterinarian. No big surprise here, everything you can see in the mainstream media is controlled by financial interests, including the news reports.
