Titanium dioxide and the link to obesity

There is a growing body of evidence to indicate that this may just be the case, for it is certainly disturbing a great many of our body's processes. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is food additive found in a significant percentage of processed food products we consume including dairy, cereals, condiments, sauces and many others.

Modeling is based on the consumption of manufactured foods containing Titanium dioxide. When Food intake is approx. 500gms per day, the consumption of titanium dioxide may be as high as 1%. This equates to approximately 5gms of Titanium Dioxide being consumed per day

Under normal conditions, the body can only excrete approx 0.8gms each day. Above 0.8mgs, bioaccumulation starts to occur, as the following figures illustrate:

Equates to 4.2gms of weight increase per day
Equates to 1.533kgs increase in 1year
Equates to 15.33kgs in 10 years

RFK gives eye-opening interview on the dangers of vaccines on Tucker Carlson

Robert F. Kennedy Jr was recently a guest on Tucker Carlson's show for Fox News, and in it he revealed it was only the second time he'd ever been allowed to discuss the dangers of vaccines on such a platform. This restriction is hardly a surprise, and it's no secret that networks and shows are paid vast amounts of advertising dollars by big pharmaceutical companies to paint a particular picture — one that continually promotes vaccines as necessary and safe.

Hundreds of scientists and doctors from around the world who are now publishing studies that raise concerns about vaccine safety share this sentiment. Dr. Christopher Shaw, a professor at the University of British Columbia in the Department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology, and Visual Sciences, is one such scientist. Regarding the HPV vaccine, he writes, "It is a vaccine that's been highly marketed, the benefits are over-hyped, and the dangers are underestimated." (source)

Comment: From this article: Since 1989 the US government has paid out $3 billion to vaccine-injured Americans
The United States federal court has presided over landmark cases for the autism community, filing official court decisions that have linked vaccinations as an environmental trigger of autism. The court in which all of these decisions are rendered is the Office of Special Masters of the United States Courts of Federal Claims, otherwise known as "Vaccine Court."

The U.S. government created this specific court in 1986 to protect pharmaceutical companies from the direct lawsuits that were arising due to the preponderance of illnesses and injuries that were stemming from the company's vaccination products. By establishing the Vaccine Court, the government now protects the pharmaceutical industry by trying the cases and awarding damages from a federal excise tax added to the cost of each dosage of a vaccine.

In the "Vaccine Court," the burden of proof lays squarely on the claimant. In other words, a family must show a clear causal connection between a vaccination and its adverse effects. For the autism community, this standard is made more challenging because the "Vaccine Court" does not accept "autism" as a legal determination. This is because autism is a clinical diagnosis, labeled on the basis of a collection of clinical features and created by causes that are still unknown. But the autism community has still persevered, and compelled the court to acknowledge the link between their children's autism diagnoses and vaccinations' environmental triggers.

Phytomedicine: Critically ill patients with drug-resistant malaria cured using dried leaves of Artemisia annua plant

© Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)
In her lab at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), Pamela Weathers, professor of biology and biotechnology, has developed several high-producing cultivars of the plant Artemisia annua, which she propagates using tissue culture. The plants are used in research that has shown that a therapy using dried, powered leaves of Artemisia annua is an effective and low-cost cure for malaria.
When the standard malaria medications failed to help 18 critically ill patients, the attending physician in a Congo clinic acted under the "compassionate use" doctrine and prescribed a not-yet-approved malaria therapy made only from the dried leaves of the Artemisia annua plant. In just five days, all 18 people fully recovered. This small but stunningly successful trial offers hope to address the growing problem of drug-resistant malaria.

Details of the cases are documented in the paper "Artemisia annua dried leaf tablets treated malaria resistant to ACT and i.v. artesunate: case reports" by an international team lead by Pamela Weathers, PhD, professor of biology and biotechnology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), who has pioneered the use of dried leaves of Artemisia annua (DLA) as a malaria therapy.

"To our knowledge, this is the first report of dried-leaf Artemisia annua controlling ACT-resistant malaria in humans," the authors of the Phytomedicine paper note, adding that more comprehensive clinical trials on patients with drug-resistant malaria are warranted. "Successful treatment of all 18 ACT-resistant cases suggests that DLA should be rapidly incorporated into the antimalarial regimen for Africa," they added, "and possibly wherever else ACT resistance has emerged."

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy - vaccine/drug pusher asked to resign from duty

The White House on Friday abruptly, and without warning, dismissed U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, a holdover from the Obama administration.

"Today, Dr. Murthy, the leader of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, was asked to resign from his duties as Surgeon General after assisting in a smooth transition into the new Trump Administration," the Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement, according to USA Today.

The US public has been forced to sit by over the recent years as Murthy shilled for Big Pharma to target children. To kick off National Infant Immunization Week in 2015, Murthy teamed up with Sesame Street and Elmo for behavior placement directed at your children. The campaign sought to convince the real decision makers when it comes to childhood and infant vaccination; the children and infants. Having undertones of plain creepiness throughout the advertisement, the Surgeon General implied to your children and Elmo that their bodies can fight germs only with the help of vaccines.

Monsanto's glyphosate herbicide detected in organic foods

Think you can avoid glyphosate by buying organic? Think again. A new investigation by Tropical Traditions reveals that many products in the organic grain market in the U.S. contain glyphosate residue at levels almost the same as conventional grains.

You and your loved ones likely ingested Monsanto's cancer-causing herbicide with breakfast this morning and the FDA couldn't care less.

The FDA is demonstrating their incompetence yet again by completely ignoring a critical report that shows how ubiquitous Monsanto's carcinogenic Roundup has truly become.

According to the report released by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, detectable levels of glyphosate, the chief ingredient in Roundup, were found in numerous breakfast food items. Glyphosate, which has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization, was found in bread products, cereals and coffee creamers.

For a tasty way to gut health, make your own probiotics

On a recent foray to my local health food store to find some powerful probiotics I endured a little sticker shock. A one month supply of probiotics was going to cost me from $30 to $79 dollars. I care a lot about my health, but spending almost $1000 bucks annually on a single food supplement isn't going to work for me, especially when I can make my own probiotics, which just happen to be way better, for about $2 a month. You can too.

The bacteria in our bodies equals the number of cells we have. We are like a walking biodome for trillions of these living creatures. If we don't take care of our microbiota, then our health truly suffers.

If bad bacteria take over our guts, we are likely to develop chronic gut inflammation that can lead to depression, heart disease, joint pain, obesity, more frequent colds and flu, and even neurodegenerative diseases. No thanks!

Colonizing the gut with probiotics is super important, but these live bacteria and yeasts which live in our digestive systems can be placed there by the foods we eat - and sauerkraut is one of the easiest, cheapest, most probiotic-friendly foods on the planet. We don't need to pay a small fortune to get our probiotics in pill form.

Americans take too many prescription medications

The most startling statistics I've seen in recent months came from Mayo Clinic researchers last June, who reported that nearly 70 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug. More than half take at least two prescriptions. Twenty percent take five or more.

Since this was published, I've heard relatively little reaction from the medical community. So allow me to speak up: This is scandalous and tragic.

To put it in an international perspective, a 2010 British study established that among 14 developed countries surveyed, the U.S. is solidly number one in per-capita prescription drug use.

If Americans enjoyed robust health as a result of taking more prescription medications than anyone else on earth, the staggering expense might be worthwhile. But we are dead last in health outcomes among 17 developed nations surveyed by the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine. In 2013, they reported a "strikingly consistent and pervasive" pattern of worse health for all Americans, young and old, compared to the health of citizens from economically comparable nations.

Nations that take far fewer drugs than we do are healthier. Why?

Dying 13 year old, Amelia Ferguson diagnoses her own HPV vaccine injury that stumped doctors

© DAVID SANDISON FOR THE TIMES UK.
Amelia Ferguson was dying and spending her days in bed, because doctors could not determine what was wrong with her. So she took her iPad and researched her condition herself, and found out it was related to the HPV vaccine, which allowed doctors to properly treat her condition.
One of the true tragedies in modern medicine is the refusal to consider vaccine injuries when diagnosing or treating disease. The U.S. government acknowledges that people die and are injured by vaccines, as is evidenced from the Department of Justice's quarterly reports on settlements in vaccine court.

However, medical students are given no training in recognizing or treating vaccine injuries, and no studies are ever conducted to find out why some children suffer from vaccines while others do not.

In this story out of the U.K., a 13 year old girl accomplishes something her doctors could not do, and that was diagnose her own life-threatening disease by researching all of the possibilities, without excluding vaccine injuries, something that apparently handicapped her doctors. She discovered that she suffered from an autoimmune disease after receiving the HPV vaccine.

Comment: Merck's former Doctor: 'Gardasil is the greatest medical scandal of all time'
There is a long list of educated people speaking out about this vaccine. This time around, it's Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck who has started to raise his voice against the HPV vaccine, along with the pharmaceutical industry as a whole. He joins a long list of experts from within the industry who have slammed the rampant manipulation and control of clinical research done by the pharmaceutical industry.

This quote is taken from an interview that happened in April of 2014, from an issue of the French magazine Principes de Santé (Health Principles):
"The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless. Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all. I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it! Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine." (source) - Dr. Bernard Dalbergue

Hops herb helps fights breast cancer & menopause symptoms

© Off The Grid News
Nature works in mysterious ways. This is surely the case of the Hops herb (Humulus lupulus) when it comes to breast cancer and menopause symptoms.

Hops lessens menopausal symptoms

Hops herb and its constituents have been found in multiple studies to have a positive effect upon menopausal symptoms. These include hot flushes (or hot flashes) and night sweats. These are termed vasomotor symptoms because they involve the ability of the blood vessels to expand and contract. The connection is that estrogen has a lot to do with regulating the blood vessels' flexibility.

One clinical study of Hops and menopause came from Belgium's Ghent University. It tested 67 menopausal women for three months. The researchers given either a Hops extract called 8-prenylnarigenin (8-PN) or a placebo. The study found that after six weeks and 12 weeks, those taking the Hops extract experienced a significant reduction in vasomotor symptoms - including hot flushes (or hot flashes) and night sweats.
