Childhood chemo survivors face debilitating, long-term health consequences

After America has witnessed at least two cases of forced chemotherapy on children - the true, damaging nature of chemotherapy bubbles to the surface.

A 17-year-old was strapped down and forcefully injected chemo toxins against her express wishes after it went before a judge. Likewise, an Ohio children's hospital caught dosing a 10-year-old Amish girl with experimental chemotherapy drugs got a judge to uphold an order to keep up the "life-saving" procedure. The family left the country for her recovery with alternative methods.

The unfortunate truth is that judges setting these violating precedents could be sentencing children to debilitating health problems later on or a shortened life. According to Northwestern University, the number of U.S. childhood cancer survivors has increased but most of the survivors past the five-year mark face chronic health problems related to treatment.

Tulsi: The amazing Ayurvedic herb can help cleanse your mind, body & spirit

Image
Tulsi, which means "the incomparable one" in Hindi and is often referred to as holy basil, is a potent herb that has been used for over 5000 years in India to treat colds, coughs, and the flu. According to Ayurvedic medicine, regular consumption of the tulsi herb can also promote a sense of purity and lightness in the body, and is said to cleanse the respiratory tract of toxins and relieve bloating and digestive gas. This plant is so sacred that often Hindu prayer beads are even made from the wood of the tulsi plant!

Basil can be found on every continent, but holy basil is indigenous to the subcontinent of India. It grows as a bushy shrub that can reach 18 inches in height, its leaves are oval shaped and have serrated edges, and its colors are either light green or dark purple depending on where it is growing.

Russian man to undergo first head transplant

Image
The first man set to undergo a head transplant has been revealed, saying that he finds the controversial surgery "very scary, but also very interesting".

Valery Spiridinov is set to be the first person to undergo the operation. It will be carried out by controversial Italian doctor Sergio Canavero, whose optimistic plans have mostly been met with scepticism.

But Spiridonov — who has the rare genetic Werdnig-Hoffman disease, which gradually wastes away muscles — says that he is willing to undergo the risky procedure to give himself a chance at living in a healthy body.

"Am I afraid? Yes, of course I am. But it is not just very scary, but also very interesting," Spiridonov, speaking from his house in the Russian town of Vladimir about 120 miles from Moscow, told MailOnline.

"But you have to understand that I don't really have many choices," he said. "If I don't try this chance my fate will be very sad. With every year my state is getting worse."

Spiridinov said that he has spoken with Dr Canavaro over Skype but they are yet to meet. The Russian man was chosen from a number of people that emailed and wrote to Canavaro to ask to undergo the procedure, he said.

Canavaro raised scepticism earlier this year when he said that he would be able to carry out the procedure within two years. Other medical experts called the procedure unlikely, and rare, as well as highlighting the fact that it would never be used for those that simply want to replace an ailing body. Some have even compared Canavaro to Frankenstein.

"I would not wish this on anyone," said Dr Hunt Batjer, president elect of the American Association for Neurological Surgeons.

"I would not allow anyone to do it to me as there are a lot of things worse than death."

Comment: If this works, it could really help to get our world back on the right track. For example, we could transplant monkey heads on to the world's most prominent politicians, thereby ensuring at least a 100% increase in responsible governance.

Propagandists have infiltrated every segment of academia and social media to confuse consumers who seek accurate information about health

© Prevent Disease
The long anticipated cultural war over vaccines initiated by governments on behalf of the pharmaceutical industrial complex is steadily increasing in intensity. Contrary to innate human rights, mandatory initiatives to vaccinate the entire population have spawned well over one hundred bills across 36 states. How any sane person can still believe that the vaccination movement is one of benevolence or anything to do with advancing health is beyond logic. Since the false pandemic in 2009, the pharmaceutical industry has paid more than 2.5 billion to doctors and industry shills who have used their position of trust to push deadly drugs and the false science of vaccines to billions.

In the early 1970s, a group of medical researchers decided to study an unusual question. How would a medical audience respond to a lecture that was completely devoid of content, yet delivered with authority by a convincing phony?

To find out, the authors hired a distinguished-looking actor and gave him the name Dr. Myron L. Fox. They fabricated an impressive CV for Dr. Fox and billed him as an expert in mathematics and human behavior. Finally, they provided him with a
fake lecture composed largely of impressive-sounding gibberish, and had him deliver the lecture wearing a white coat to three medical audiences under the title "Mathematical Game Theory as Applied to Physician Education." At the end of the lecture, the audience members filled out a questionnaire.

The responses were overwhelmingly positive. The audience members described Dr. Fox as "extremely articulate" and "captivating." One said he delivered "a very dramatic presentation." After one lecture, 90 percent of the audience members said they had found the lecture by Dr. Fox "stimulating." Over all, almost every member of every audience loved Dr. Fox's lecture, despite the fact that, as the authors write, it was delivered by an actor "programmed to teach charismatically and nonsubstantively on a topic about which he knew nothing."

Examples of sophisticated disinformation are more difficult to identify because they are more effectively disguised, but they have been exposed more than once in the post cold war era.

Today, well-funded, highly-organized disinformation and misinformation operations are using similar tactics throughout government, academia and all facets of media. The only difference is that many of the players are credentialed propagandists, not actors, although many of them should win academy awards for the amount of myths they are attempting to pass off as facts.

Is Monsanto doing secret biowar research on Maui?

Here is a stunning quote from Sherwood Ross' 6/22/2007 Counterpunch article, "The Big Profits in Boiwarfare Research: Corporate America's Deadliest Secret":

"A number of major pharmaceutical corporations and biotech firms are concealing the nature of the biological warfare research work they are doing for the U.S. government.

"Since their funding comes from the National Institutes of Health, the recipients are obligated under NIH guidelines to make their activities public. Not disclosing their ops raises the suspicion they may be engaged in forbidden kinds of germ warfare research.

Propyl Paraben: Are you eating an endocrine disruptor?

The pastry you're thinking about buying may contain the preservative propyl paraben, linked to disruptions in hormone signaling.

According to ingredient data obtained by EWG's Food Scores: Rate Your Plate, an online database and app that helps consumers eat healthier, propyl paraben is in 49 widely-available processed foods, including Sara Lee cinnamon rolls, Weight Watchers cakes and La Banderita Corn Tortillas.

Last year, EWG turned the spotlight on propyl paraben in its Dirty Dozen Guide To Food Additives because the federal Food and Drug Administration has listed its use in food as "Generally Recognized As Safe." Despite mounting evidence that propyl paraben disrupts the endocrine system, the FDA has failed to take action to eliminate its use in food or reassess its safety.

Comment: Carcinogenic parabens contaminating U.S. food supply
Researchers may have solved a vexing mystery as to why parabens contamination in humans has been so pervasive in recent studies: Parabens are increasingly contaminating our food supply.

Researchers from the New York State Department of Health and the Department of Environmental Health Sciences, along with the University of New York at Albany have determined in a study of foods purchased from local markets that much of the U.S. food supply is contaminated with parabens - a group of chemicals thought previously to produce exposure in humans through the skin in cosmetics and lotions containing preservatives.

This likely explains an increasing body of evidence showing that humans have much higher blood and urine concentrations of parabens than could be explained with the use of body lotions and cosmetics.

New Study: How using bleach could be making us sick

© Natural Society
A study published earlier this month suggests that a variety of illnesses may be fostered by the use of bleach, an old-time cleaner. How could that be? Bleach is used to kill bacteria, just as antibacterial soap and hand sanitizers are.

Each of these products is hazardous to your relationship with the beneficial bacteria in your gut, and it is these bacteria that make up the backbone of the immune system. How ironic that the compounds we have been using to stay clean and avoid germs could be making us sick

Researchers from Spain, Finland, and the Netherlands investigated the correlation between bleach use in the home and frequency of infection in 9102 children ages 6-12. Parents filled out a questionnaire revealing whether they used bleach in the weekly cleaning of their home.

They also reported the frequency of infections in their children, such as influenza, tonsillitis, ear infections, sinus and pneumonia during the past year.

Although the frequency of bleach use varied greatly in the countries from which the participants were drawn, the researchers were able to determine that overall, the prevalence of single and recurrent infections was higher among children whose parents used bleach.

They concluded that using bleach to clean the home may increase the risk of respiratory and other infections in school-age children, and this may indicate a public health issue.

How to detox from fluoride

In today's world, fluoride is hard to avoid completely. Here's how to detox your body.
Image
Adding fluoride to the water supplies has been called murder on a grand scale. But whether or not your town adds it to your drinking water, you're probably ingesting this toxin every day.

You're exposed to fluoride if you take prescription drugs like Prozac, swim in pools, or sit in hot tubs. It's in conventional produce like lettuce, and commercial bread and bakery products. It may be in beverages like iced tea, wine, and beer made with municipal water, or in infant formula. And of course it's in toothpaste. It may even sneak into your food from Teflon coated pots and pans.

In addition to increasing the risk of death, fluoride also calcifies the pineal gland and hardens the arteries. And it increases the risk of hypothyroidism.

Minimizing your exposure to fluoride is important. But in today's world, this toxin is hard to avoid completely. That's why it's critical to detox your body from fluoride.

Corporate modern medicine's role in the rapid decline of human physiology

Readers may recall my recent article "Proof That Past Is Prologue Pharmacologically" about the thousand-year-old 'antibiotic' recipe that stunned today's scientists who 'tried it out' in their scientific laboratory, only to find that it killed off 90% of MRSA in mice.

For those who aren't familiar with MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus), here is a short video that lets you see the damage MRSA can do to the human body.

Juxtapose that video with this one wherein the laboratory scientist, who conducted the Anglo-Saxon 'antibiotic' recipe experiment four times with the same amazing results, explains their surprise.

The take-away message from this "re-discovery" should be this, in my opinion: Human biochemistry has evolved over eons of time and brought us to where we are now in life. However, in less than 200 hundred short years in the United States of America at least, corporate modern medicine, with all its innovative 'sciences', e.g., vaccines, chemotherapy, and toxic pharmaceuticals, plus the chemical industry's toxic chemical 'enhancement' of food growing and processing has brought humans into a tragic, serious, and rapid decline in human physiology, which is documented by the facts below:

1. Heart disease (which includes Heart Disease, Stroke and other Cardiovascular Diseases) is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States, killing nearly 787,000 people alone in 2011.

2. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for people of most racial/ethnic groups in the United States, including African Americans, Hispanics and Whites. For Asian Americans or Pacific Islanders and American Indians or Alaska Natives, heart disease is second only to cancer. [CJF emphasis added]

3. Direct and indirect costs of heart disease total more than $320.1 billion. That includes health expenditures and lost productivity. [1]

[It should be noted that heart disease became a prominent health problem in the 1900s.]

4. The American Cancer Society has been keeping statistics since 1952. According to the ACS 2015 report, "Cancer is caused by external factors, such as tobacco, infectious organisms, and an unhealthy diet, and internal factors, such as inherited genetic mutations, hormones, and immune conditions. These factors may act together or in sequence to cause cancer." [2]

[Note that chemicals or toxic pollution are missing from that list!]

Fleas in Arizona test positive for bubonic plague

Fleas near a popular hiking trail outside Flagstaff, Arizona have tested positive for the bubonic plague. The insects were found in prairie dog burrows in Picture Canyon. State officials warned visitors and residents to avoid contact with prairie dogs.

Public health officials noticed a prairie dog burrow where animals appeared to be dying off and saw at least one dead prairie dog, Randy Philips, division manager with the Coconino County Public Health Services District, told the Arizona Daily Sun.

"It looked like something that could be associated with death due to plague," Philips said.

The first round of testing took place over a limited area of Picture Canyon, just north of the Wildcat Wastewater Treatment Plant in east Flagstaff. On Thursday, they went back to sample more flea colonies over a much broader area, Phillips said. Those results are due back later this week.

On Saturday, officials began clearing and disinfecting burrows in the area with insecticides, in an attempt to prevent any possible outbreak of the plague.
