Doctors admit vaccines are harmful and turn our immune systems against us

© Natural News
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently included vaccine skeptics - people who are hesitant to vaccinate themselves or their children because they are concerned about the potential health risks - on their annual list of "global health threats," along with serious dangers like superbugs, climate change, the Ebola virus, HIV and air pollution. The WHO claims that "vaccine hesitancy" increases the risk of a resurgence in diseases they claim are fully preventable through vaccination.

The WHO is by no means alone in its position. Many governments, medical professionals and members of the mainstream media have attacked anti-vaxxers - as they are known - claiming that they are selfish people who put the health of the greater majority at risk. These pro-vaccine groups and individuals like to infer that to question vaccines is both unscientific and dangerous.

In recent years, however, a growing number of highly respected scientists and doctors have started questioning mainstream vaccine propaganda as the results of their own, unbiased studies raise alarming questions about the long-term safety of vaccines. These issues particularly relate to the volume of vaccinations administered to small children and the adjuvants and ingredients used in the manufacture of these vaccines. The latest such study was recently published in the journal Pharmacological Research, warning that many, many people are at increased risk of developing autoimmune diseases after receiving vaccinations.


Objective: Health - Law or Flaw? Let's Talk About Abortion


When is abortion okay and when is it just killing babies? What are the limits? Is it really a women's rights issue, or is there more to it?

The so-called Reproductive Health Act states that "every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion." This erases the state's recognition of preborn babies older than 24 weeks as potential homicide victims, removes abortion from the penal code entirely, and allows licensed health practitioners other than medical doctors to perform abortion procedures.

This has many people up in arms as it essentially removes the limits on abortion. The Left frames it as a victory for women's rights while the Right are calling those who promote the new mandate participants in a culture of death who authorize infanticide.

Join us on this week's episode of Objective: Health as we get down to the nitty gritty on abortion.

Monsanto Roundup attacks healthy gut bacteria, lawsuit says

Bottles of Roundup weed killer.
Monsanto Co. has been sued by thousands of farmers and others who blame their cancers on its massively popular Roundup weedkiller. Now Germany's Bayer AG, which bought the agriculture giant last year, faces a claim that it deceived home gardeners about Roundup's impact on their gut bacteria and their health.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in federal court in Kansas City, Missouri, claims that labels on products such as Roundup's Weed & Grass Killer falsely assured consumers that they target an enzyme not found "in people or pets."

According to the suit -- which names three consumers as plaintiffs seeking unspecified monetary damages and class action status -- Roundup's active ingredient glyphosate attacks an enzyme also found in the beneficial intestinal bacteria of humans and some animals.

Comment: Since the first successful suit against Monsanto, it seems the lawyer sharks have smelled the blood in the water and are going in for the kill. Good. It couldn't happen to a more deserving evil corporation.

Los Angeles firefighters report neurological damage after cell tower installation near their station

The conversation about 5G within the mainstream is becoming quite concerning for onlookers, as there's been an increase in awareness about the health concerns of wireless radiation. Sure, there are natural sources of electromagnetic radiation on both ends of the spectrum in our environment, but never before has humanity experienced this much. The main reason why this is so concerning is because: "Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-review literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans, we have clear evidence of cancer now: there is no question We have evidence of DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, which is the precursor of congestive heart failure, neuropsychiatric effects." (Dr. Sharon Goldberg, 5G Small Cell Tower Hearing In Michigan)

You don't have to look hard to find the scientific research pertaining to wireless radiation, cell phones, electrical lines, etc. That being said, "waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco." (The European Commission).

Here you can find a list of citations for 1,670 peer-reviewed scientific papers about electromagnetic fields (EMF) published in scientific journals dating back to 1979 all the way through to 2018.

Study gives more evidence cancer is a lifestyle disease largely caused by food

cancer cells
Cancer is a terrible, unwanted illness that affects far too many of the world's population today. One of the scariest things about this deadly foe, however, is that doctors today attest to having little idea about what causes cancer cases. We've assumed that sunlight is the culprit, but also medications and sunscreens. We've accused certain jobs, specific fumes, and lifestyle choices, but a recent Canadian study sheds more light on the subject, suggesting that cancer actually is a lifestyle disease that is hugely influenced by the foods we eat. (1)

Current Cancer Facts

However shockingly, it's believed that the worldwide cancer rate is only going to rise in future years. Some have predicted that by 2020, 1 out of every 2 women and 1 out of every 3 men will be diagnosed at some point in their lives with some form of cancer. Cancer is so incredibly common already that it's more likely for someone to contract cancer than to get married or have a baby. These types of statistics are insane, especially considering the millions of dollars worth of research being poured into science and study meant to help combat cancer and reduce the disease in the future. (1, 2, 3, 4)

Comment: The above list of dietary and lifestyle factors likely is a muddle of truth, half-truths and lies. It's rather dubious to pin cancer on natural sunlight exposure, smoking, salt, processed meats, inadequate fiber intake, etc. The truth is that we simply don't know how any of these things contribute to cancer (if at all), despite what epidemiological studies may tell us. None the less, it seems self-evident at this point that diet and lifestyle do have a great impact on one's cancer status.

Israeli start-up company using canines to detect cancer

Dog with samples.
A Negev start-up company is using canines to determine if an individual has cancer. Prognose 220 Mil is inviting the public to send a saliva sample to their laboratory, via messenger, where specially trained dogs use their strong sense of smell to sniff for cancer.

"The main significance of the test is life saving early detection (of cancer). Since dogs are able to identify the characteristic scent of the disease," says lab manager and dog trainer Uri Bekman. If the dog sits still after sniffing the sample, that is an indication of the disease being present. The test costs NIS 400.

Yael Dror Alon, a businesswoman from Caesarea, took the test and tested positive, despite doctors giving her a clean bill of health. She is now undergoing treatment at Tel Hashomer Medical Center and has decided to embark on a fundraising venture to provide access to the test for anyone in need.

A study by Prof. Pesach Shvartzman, of Ben Gurion University recently found that various forms of cancer have a common smell that can be detected by dogs.


The carnivore diet: Is it really healthy?

Is an all-meat, carnivore diet healthy?
The carnivore diet is a hot eating trend, and many people have reported significant benefits from adopting an all-meat diet. But is consuming only meat healthy in the long term? Read on to understand the mechanisms behind the diet, the potential consequences of not eating plant foods, and a few alternatives to going pure carnivore.

In my recent debate on the Joe Rogan Experience with Dr. Joel Kahn, I touched briefly on the carnivore diet. I'm a huge believer that meat is an essential part of a healthy diet, but eating an all-meat diet is an entirely different subject, and I think we need to be very careful about assuming that an intervention that works well in the short term will also be safe and effective in the long term.

In this article, I'll discuss the diets of ancestral populations, how the carnivore diet affects the body, my concerns about the potential consequences of such a restrictive diet in the long term, and alternative dietary approaches that might offer the same benefits without having to go pure carnivore.

Comment: It's good to get Kresser's take on the diet and air out some of his concerns. However, when we look at the anecdotal evidence we hear fairly miraculous results from people doing the diet long term. As Kresser has stated, there's still a great deal we don't know, and caution should be exercised when embarking on any new diet.

Is broccoli good for you? Meet the crucifer family

cruciferous vegetables
Public health officials and nutrition experts love to sing the praises of the virtuous cruciferous vegetable family. We are told that these pungent plants can fight off cancer, strengthen our immune system, and leap tall buildings in a single bound. But could crucifers have a dark side?

The cruciferous veggies (the Brassica family) dominate the produce aisle; many people may not realize how many familiar vegetables belong to this family.

Comment: Confused yet? It would be nice to have some definitive evidence on whether or not vegetables are actually as healthful as most of the experts claim. Yet it seems this contentious issue is far from settled. It's obvious there are some harmful effects, but does the hormesis argument counteract these effects? The best approach, as always, seems to be the need for self experimentation. 'Does it work for me?', if sincere, is the most important question anyone can ask.

World Health Organization declares: Anti-vaxxers are among the top 'threats to global health' in 2019

Anti-vaxxers have been named one of the top threats to global health in 2019 by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The anti-vaccine movement joined air pollution and climate change, HIV, and a worldwide influenza pandemic on the list released on Monday.

'Vaccine hesitancy', as the WHO calls it, 'threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases.'

The organization added in its statement: 'Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease - it currently prevents [two to three] million deaths a year, and a further 1.5 million could be avoided if global coverage of vaccinations improved.'

CBD products - Are some just snake oil?

© WebMD
Arliss Buergo has been using CBD for the last year. She uses it in oil form, with just a drop on her tongue once a day.

"Those anxious moments, they seem to just drift away," Buergo said. "I feel just calmer, more at ease, grounded."

She considers the extract a natural alternative to treat her anxiety. It comes from the leaves and flowers of hemp and marijuana plants.

"I feel more mindful in the moment," she said.

She's one of a growing number of people taking a variety of CBD products. They come in the form of oils, edible gummies, creams and even coffee.
