Gardasil (HPV vaccine) has never been proven to prevent a single case of cervical cancer, but as the most profitable vaccine ever created it is increasingly being mandated despite having an atrocious safety record.
At the present time, there are over 100 bills in play around the country which seek to mandate or eliminate exemptions for vaccines. In NY state, there is a bill to mandate HPV vaccine for all students entering the 6th grade. HPV vaccination is already mandated in Virginia and the District of Columbia.
Our children are sicker than they have ever been, plagued by immune dysfunction and neurodevelopmental disorders. Meanwhile, in the name of stamping out infectious diseases, which has succeeded exactly once in over 80 years of trying, the CDC is recommending that all children be protected against viruses that might cause a very few of them to get cancer in 30 or 40 years. In the process, they must get 3 injections containing a big slug of an aluminum adjuvant, plus foreign DNA.

For the first time, Israelis have been surveyed for iodine levels and the discovered deficiencies have shocked scientists: 85 percent of pregnant women have insufficient iodine intake and the same goes for 62 percent of school-age children. Perhaps the chronic deficiency is even a cause behind the embarrassingly low scores by Israeli pupils in international exams.
The median iodine concentration found in urine of the test subjects indicate that the iodine status in Israel is amongst the lowest in the world, writes the team.
"Most of the world adds iodine to salt. We don't," explains researcher Prof. Aron Troen to Haaretz. Another issue is that arid Israel drinks a great deal of desalinated water, which could be exacerbating the problem of mineral deficiencies, including iodine.
Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition slowing the metabolism. In newborns, it can lead to neurological impairment, warns the international group of scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Maccabi Healthcare Services, Barzilai University Medical Center in Ashkelon and ETH Zurich in Switzerland, with support of the Iodine Global Network.

The CDC has long answered that nettlesome question with the controversial claim that ethylmercury in vaccines is not toxic to humans. Now, two CDC scientists have published research decisively debunking that assertion. As it turns out, there is no "good mercury" and "bad mercury." Both forms are equally poisonous to the brain.
The CDC study, Alkyl Mercury-Induced Toxicity: Multiple Mechanisms of Action, appeared last month in the journal, Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology. The 45-page meta-review of relevant science examines the various ways that mercury harms the human body. Its authors, John F. Risher, PhD, and Pamela Tucker, MD, are researchers in the CDC's Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

The book reveals how environmental conditioning can improve your health by boosting your metabolic efficiency. A large portion of the book focuses on Dannish fitness guru Wim Hof's philosophies.1
Hof does not lead a healthy lifestyle and does not optimize his diet or other healthy lifestyle strategies, which makes these accomplishments even more impressive. Please understand this interview is not an endorsement of Hof's lifestyle.
Hof, perhaps better known as "The Iceman," has gained a fair amount of notoriety for his ability to withstand extreme cold — an ability he attributes to a specific set of techniques involving breath work and extreme temperature conditioning.

The study is beset by serious methodological shortcomings, missing data issues, and statistical reporting errors and omissions. The conclusion that individuals with ADHD have smaller brains is contradicted by the "effect- size" calculations that show individual brain volumes in the ADHD and control cohorts largely overlapped. The authors also failed to discuss the fact that the ADHD cohort had higher IQ scores.
Despite such scientific missteps, the study made headlines in many countries around the world. Yahoo News suggested that the study was "proving the reality" of ADHD. Lancet Psychiatry should immediately retract the study and new media headlines must be aired to inform clinicians and parents of the true results from this study, including the IQ data.

The idea that AD is recalcitrant to all interventions is grounded in a belief that has been largely disproven within the last decade - that the nervous system is static and categorically unchangeable. The large cost and consistency of failed drug trials over the last several decades leads us to 1 central conclusion: Alzheimer's disease is a multifactorial phenomenon which develops over several decades prior to the onset of symptoms and is, in large part, a result of lifestyle.
Fortunately, the concept of neuroplasticity is quickly becoming mainstream. A 2014 study by UCLA, though small (improvement in 9 out of 10 participants), for the first time showed a reversal of mild to moderate AD using a comprehensive approach of individualized diet and lifestyle recommendations.2 Of all of the systemic factors at play, perhaps none is more crucial to address than insulin resistance.

How to Make Your Own Skin Balm
Little did I know that a trip to a farm in Mexico would lead me to embark on another journey, one to discover a practical solution to the modern skin care dilemma, a solution consistent with the true principles of nutrition and health. This journey led to the discovery of what people used for skin care before the introduction of man-made chemicals as well as the science behind their traditional wisdom.
Due to the lack of any product on the market that fit the ideal for healthy and effective skin care, I was prompted to create a formula that I could use and share with others—a simple recipe for traditional nourishing and healing skin care.
Amazingly, God created the body with an incredible system of self-healing that withstands the onslaught and rebuilds what has been damaged. Chiropractic care has been shown to be a powerful method of stabilizing and enhancing this self-healing ability.
The central nervous system is the primary system that controls all function and healing within the body. This flow of nerve energy from the brain to the body coordinates all 75 trillion cells to action. The brain is then fed through movement information that it receives from skin, joint, & muscle receptors. This movement information is called "proprioception." The brain depends on adequate proprioception for optimal function (2, 3, 4).

Our hunter-gatherer ancestors collected all they could from the ground for food including insects, berries, nuts, etc. In their gathering, they found that the animals were eating grass and they became curious. They broke it down and somehow incorporated wild wheat into their diet. This grass was called Einkorn and had only 14 chromosomes.
Wheat back then was different
Plants can mate with each other and combine chromosomes. At some point in time, the wild grass Einkorn mated with another type of wild grass and the offspring Emmer ended up with 28 chromosomes — this is the wheat that is mentioned in the Bible. However, this is not the wheat of today, that is for sure.
In the Middle Ages, bread was a staple and very common food. Emmer mated with another grass which contributed more chromosomes to result in Spelt, Triticum landraces with 42 chromosomes.

This system is basically driven by money rather than by healing intent. At the heart of the financial orientation of this system is the protection of U.S. Patent Law, which rightfully excludes natural substances and processes from patent protection, but wrongfully allows patent protection for unnatural substances and processes to be applied as so-called bio-compatible medicines (drugs), foods, soil amendments and other life process "solutions." In reality, these substances and processes are bio-incompatible and, to a greater or lesser extent, toxic. Without the legal protection and endorsement of patent law, modern medicine/healthcare as we know it lies down and dies, drained of its financial lifeblood.
