Study finds eating bacon could extend your lifespan

Bacon-lovers, you're in luck: a new study from researchers at ETH Zurich has revealed that niacin (aka Vitamin B3) could help you live longer! The niacin-rich food menu includes not only bacon, but also Marmite, sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, and peanuts; so, this pretty much sounds like the most delicious recipe for long life ever.

Energy Metabolism Prof Michael Ristow and his team decided to feed roundworms a bunch of niacin, and discovered that the new element in the worms' diet saw them living one-tenth longer than their Vitamin B3-free peers. This evidence is surprising to the science community, because niacin promotes the formation of "free radicals," which have long been theorized to actually cause aging in organisms.

Ristow's findings go against the largely accepted theory that food rich in antioxidants can prevent aging by eliminating free radicals. "The claim that intake of antioxidants, especially in tablet form, promotes any aspect of human health lacks scientific support," said Ristow. Instead, the Zurich scientists posits that "[c]ells can cope well with oxidative stress and neutralise it."

Basically, Ristow is suggesting that niacin is perfect for every couch potato who hates fruit. "Niacin tricks the body into believing that it is exercising - even when this is not the case," said Ristow. Next up for Ristow's team is testing the theory on mice.

So, for now, just know that pretty much everything you eat either does or does not cause aging. Perfect!

Medical terrorism: Judges demand answers after children die in controversial cancer vaccine trial in India

Image

Unaware: Aman Dhawan (pictured), 16, is one of many youngsters who took part in the trial without being aware they had been signed up to test Merck's new Gardasil 9 drug, aimed at preventing cervical cancer
Judges in India's Supreme Court have demanded answers after children died during a controversial cervical cancer vaccine trial.

Young tribal girls received shots of pharmaceutical company Merck's Gardasil vaccine and Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

The vaccines are given to girls as young as nine in many countries - including the UK and the US - to protect against the human papilloma virus, one of the major causes of cervical cancer.

But the Indian court yesterday heard a challenge by campaigners who claim the study - funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - failed to obtain the informed consent of the children or their parents.

They say that a 'study' carried out for the foundation by a US organisation was in fact an illegal drugs trial.

Comment: As the vaccine controversy heats up and rages on in the good old U S of A, psychopathic big pharma corporations like Merck and GSK continue their medical terrorism in third world countries where they hope their 'mad science' will go unnoticed and unpunished.

Member of mainstream press finally publishes truth about life-altering vaccine damages

© Unkown
Finally it's happened! A member of the mainstream press has the intestinal fortitude to publish the carefully 'kept secret', secret about vaccines and vaccinations: They cause dramatic life-altering damage and more frequently than "evidence-based medicine" or "consensus science" owns up to or MDs, the medical profession, public health agencies and pro-vaccine acolytes acknowledge.

The UK's Independent Newspaper published some extremely damning vaccine adverse drug reaction (ADR) information on May 31, 2015 that said:
In the 10 years to April this year the agency received almost 22,000 "spontaneous suspected" adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports in 13 routine immunisation categories including flu, MMR, tetanus, diphtheria and polio, according to a Freedom of Information response released earlier this month. [1]
However, the vaccine 'ante' has just been upped on vaccines' adverse events/damages according to the Freedom of Information (FOI) documentation dated May 14, 2015, according to the chart below.

How to tell if a medical study is complete bull

© Crypto Junod Info
Every single day, our news feeds are inundated with studies. We're told that certain foods are bad for our health, only to find a new study that indicates these foods are good for us, and vice versa. There's always some new report that claims the things we do everyday are giving us cancer, and there are just as many reports that claim to have a possible cure.

We read about them, we quote them, and we criticize them. Just about everything we believe in, is confirmed or denied by the studies that are cranked out by the scientific community on a daily basis.

But how many of them are true?

Comment: Flawed medical research may be ruining your health
"Oftentimes, medical journals or pharmaceutical companies that sponsor research will report only "positive" results, leaving out the non-findings or negative findings where a new drug or procedure may have proved more harmful than helpful." In other words, the truth is hidden.
Avoid having the wool pulled over your eyes. Protect the health of you and your family by doing your own research.

Chronic illness begins in the gut

Good overall health begins with a healthy gut. Chronic illness begins with breakdown in the gut. This is where I typically start with clients looking to address any health challenge.
If you're looking for lasting improvement in any area of your health, it's best not to think of your body parts as being independent compartments. Every cell communicates with every other cell, not always directly, but via the fluids, hormones, and neurotransmitters that travel through the vast network of blood vessels and nerves that course through every part of you. And it all starts with your gut.

Danish environmental group declares glyphosate a carcinogen, recommends change to less toxic chemicals

The Danish Working Environment Authority (WEA) has declared glyphosate a carcinogen, according to a report in the Danish news outlet Nyhederne. This means that they will demand that due care is taken when it is used, and they will recommend a change to other less toxic chemicals.

The WEA operates under the auspices of the Danish Ministry of Employment. The WEA's verdict reinforces the decision of the World Health Organisation's cancer agency IARC that glyphosate is a "probable" carcinogen.

Philippe Grandjean, professor of environmental medicine at the University of Southern Denmark, commented, ""We know that glyphosate causes cancer in other mammals, but it has not been demonstrated in humans. This is because the effects have not been investigated thoroughly enough in people yet. But when we see that other mammals get cancer from glyphosate, we must assume that people who are exposed to the substance can also develop cancer."

Comment: It's about time that more countries are finally taking steps to remove this toxin from the food supply. The negative health impacts linked to glyphosate are quite serious and include infertility, damage to the nervous system, Parkinson's disease, birth defects and several forms of cancer.

Debunking the myths surrounding sun exposure and sunscreen

If you align yourself with the misinformation that comes out of the sunscreen and cancer industries and combine that with the absurd advice from dermatologists, you get a wonderful cocktail of nonsense sure to accelerate any cancer you may be trying to prevent. Then again, that's what the cancer industry wants. Not only does blocking the sun's rays from reaching your skin dramatically reduce optimal vitamin D levels, but when you use any conventional sunscreen, it's like spreading cancer right into your skin. Here's why "sun damage" is a term you should erase from your vocabulary and learn how to avoid 6 harmful ingredients.

Fast food chains ditch unhealthy additives -- why did it take so long?

Recently, a multitude of fast food chains and other food companies have announced their transition toward healthier ingredients. However, it is immensely disturbing to learn about the ingredients being removed before making a switch to cleaner food.

Food giants such as Chipotle, Dunkin' Donuts, McDonald's, Coke, and more have been boasting about their transition to natural ingredients, (Chipotle even went completely non-GMO). Although the switch to healthier alternatives is a highly admirable gesture, it makes us wonder, well... what were we eating in the first place?!

To answer that question — we've basically been eating flame retardant, paint, sunscreen, and other common household items. Yup.

No, we kid. Or do we?

Surprisingly — and quite disturbingly — we actually HAVE been eating ingredients that can, indeed, be found in the aforementioned items.

For the sake of delving into the specifics of the most concerning findings, here it goes:

Comment: Adopt a low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet and avoid fast food all together.
