Mysterious illness spreads like wildfire in Alabama school, 120 sick

© ABC
In an ABC 33/40 news exclusive report, a mysterious illness spread like wildfire in a Lamar County school.

The illness ending a large number of students home sick. Right now, the cause of the illness is yet to be determined. Roughly 120 students were out at South Lamar today. The school system contacted the state health department.

An environmental health specialist will be at the school Thursday to investigate what caused the students to get sick. On Wednesday afternoon, crews were at the school cleaning the building and school buses thoroughly.

Several parents posted about the mysterious illness on Facebook. Some say they noticed their children getting sick Tuesday night, and that several households got hit at once. Many agree, they have never seen anything like this.

Some question whether there was food contamination. Superintedent Garth Moss tells ABC 33/40, some students got sick who ate in the cafeteria. Other students got sick who didn't set foot in the cafeteria.

CDC's measles hysteria: Proposed rule calls for detention or quarantine of travelers suspected of having a contagious disease

© John Woudstra
I remember the day in 2007, when I was standing in front of a Maryland country courthouse videotaping interviews with mothers and fathers lined up with children who had been thrown out of school for failing to show proof they had gotten chickenpox and hepatitis B shots.1,2

State public health officials were threatening the parents with fines and jail time and suddenly, as we were talking, men in uniforms with guns and dogs emerged from the courthouse and headed toward us.

In the pit of my stomach was the sickening feeling that people in countries throughout history have felt when the exercise of freedom of thought, speech and conscience is met with a demonstration of police power wielded by agents of the State.

Today, the American people are challenged, as they have never been before, to confront the expansion of government authority over our bodies and the bodies of our children, specifically the exercise of police power to take us into custody and isolate us without our consent whenever public health officials believe we are sick or could become sick.

At stake is the preservation of human rights and cultural values that have been part of America since the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights defined civil liberties two centuries ago.

Are public health officials getting ready to apprehend and quarantine you or your child if they believe you are, or could become, infected with measles or any other communicable disease they decide is a threat to the public health?

Are they enlisting airline and other public transportation personnel to help them conduct a dragnet that will be easy for you to get caught up in when you travel?

Once you are detained, can they hold you for 72 hours against your will until you agree to be vaccinated or they declare you are no longer a threat? Is this for real or not? You be the judge.

Comment: Is a forced vaccination agenda behind the measles hysteria?
Every person has an absolute right to their own body and anything that goes into it. Take good note of the following, and be prepared to use it when they bring up the safety argument:

1) The US Government Has Paid out $3 Billion to Vaccine-Injured Americans Since 1989, and almost 90 percent of victims with serious side effects are deterred from reporting or even making a claim. Doctors are trained to deny any evidence of vaccine linked to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

2) The Polio vaccine is contaminated with monkey cancer virus

3) A 5 Year old girl contracted shingles (severe nerve damage) after chickenpox vaccination

4) The MMR vaccine has been shown to give baby monkeys autism

5) In the New York measles outbreak 90% were vaccinated for measles.

6) There are thousands of SIDS deaths linked to vaccines administered a few days before, and many more thousands of screaming babies with high fevers and permanent damage.

How packaging covers up the truth about bacon's fatty glory

© Josh Freydkis
Bacon is fatty. It's the nature of the beast—literally—because bacon is made from pork belly, which is a naturally fatty section of a hog's carcass. That's part of why bacon tastes so good: Fat is flavor. But we've also been taught that fat is unhealthy and unappealing. And this tension may explain why bacon has one of the most unusual and underappreciated packaging formats of any supermarket product.

You've probably seen and handled supermarket bacon countless times. The standard one-pound package shows the bacon slices fanned out, with only their leading edges exposed. The industry term for this is a shingle pack—a reference to the way the slices overlap. Because those front edges tend to feature more lean muscle than the fattier back edges, and because the face of the top slice is invariably covered by a paperboard flap containing the manufacturer's logo and other branding information, the consumer sees a relatively unbroken field of red protein, creating the illusion that the bacon is leaner than it is.

Comment: Don't fear the bacon, embrace it.

Beware 5G technolgy

On 14 July 2016 the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) of the USA made space available in the radio spectrum for consumer devices to operate within the 25 GHz to 100 GHz of the electromagnetic spectrum.

It went on to say:
"The Commission has struck a balance between new wireless services, current and future fixed satellite service operations, and federal uses. The item adopts effective sharing schemes to ensure that diverse users - including federal and non-federal, satellite and terrestrial, and fixed and mobile - can co-exist and expand."
Nowhere in its document is mention made of consumer safety or well-being. I guess that is fair of the FCC because historically, it is not interested in matters of microwave radiation and consequent thermal and non-thermal effects on the population. Let's face it, and most people find this hard to believe, the FCC works purely on behalf of the telecoms industries in granting them access to the airwaves, no more and no less.

Why breastmilk does what a vaccine never could

© Marco Bello / Reuters
To claim that breastmilk is the gold standard in infant nutrition is an understatement. For a newborn, nothing comes close in nutrient density which is so perfectly customized for an infant as it grows. Breast-fed infants gain incredible protection from antibodies, proteins and immune cells in breastmilk. It defends against a myriad of pathogens in ways that are impossible through vaccination and other pharmaceuticals.

The molecules in breastmilk cells help to prevent microorganisms from penetrating the body's tissues. Some of the molecules bind to microbes in the hollow space (lumen) of the gastrointestinal tract. In this way, they block microbes from attaching to and crossing through the mucosa-the layer of cells, also known as the epithelium, that lines the digestive tract and other body cavities. Other molecules lessen the supply of particular minerals and vitamins that harmful bacteria need to survive in the digestive tract. Certain immune cells in human milk are phagocytes that attack microbes directly. Another set produces chemicals that invigorate the infant's own immune response.

The modus operandi of the GMA in defeating GMO-labeling

September 1st, 2016 I received an email from the Washington State Attorney General, Bob Ferguson, in which he gave the following updated report that I think readers may be interested in knowing. Why? Because it addresses how issues are strategized and apparently manipulated in the USA, which really should be outlawed at all levels.

Those levels especially involve dealing with federal and states legislators, members of Congress, federal and states regulatory agencies and, particularly, public referenda/initiatives that would influence legislation, since consumers don't have the persuasive financial clout corporations PO$$E$$ and presumably often even use illegally. There needs to be a level playing field in getting all legislation passed without undue vested interest influences! Big Pharma, especially, should have "its sails trimmed," as it is one of the most influential of all "movers and shakers"!

Arkansas hit by mumps outbreak - only among the vaccinated

Back to school, feels like back to Mumps season.

It appears that with the return to school and in light of mandatory vaccination laws, increased pressure by physicians to get vaccines, and of course vaccine shedding, Big Pharma is seemingly bringing back Mumps to our nation's children.
"In the last 15 years the highest number (in Arkansas) we've had was 14," said Dr. Dirk Haselow.
Luckily, for those children that have not been vaccinated, the same false sense of security doesn't seem to apply. Avoiding germs and proper hygiene appear to be the best way to avoid Mumps, not relying on a controversial and highly ineffective MMR vaccine.

Comment: Mumps vaccine proves ineffective:
A provocative new study titled, "Epidemic of complicated mumps in previously vaccinated young adults in the South-West of France," reveals that the MMR vaccine, despite generating high rates of presumably protective IgG antibodies against mumps, does not always translate into real-world immunity against infection as we have repeatedly been told. To the contrary, the study details cases where, despite the detection of high levels of antibodies against the mumps virus, patients contracted a malignant form of mumps that only rarely follows from natural, community acquired infection.

Vaccine Failure Is Well Established In the Scientific Literature

While counter-intuitive to those who uncritically accept the official marketing copy of the vaccine industry and their cheerleaders within government and the mainstream media, the research community and general public is beginning to appreciate how prevalent and well-documented vaccine failure really is, especially in the case of measles, hepatitis B,chickenpox, pertussis (whooping cough), HIV, polio,HPV, and influenza vaccines that do not work as advertised.

Can traffic fumes go to your head? The larger the city you live in, the more magnetic particles enter your brain

Ultra-fine particles of metal in exhaust gases fly up our noses and travel into our brains, where they contribute to diseases associated with the central nervous system, and the more congested the city, the bigger the problem.

Iron nanoparticles were already known to be present in the brain - but they were thought to come from the iron naturally found in our bodies, derived from food.

Now a closer look at their structure suggests the particles mostly come from air pollution sources, like traffic fumes and coal burning. The findings are a smoking gun, says Barbara Maher of Lancaster University in the UK.

Environmental pollution including carbon particles emitted by car exhaust, smoking and long term inhalation of dust of various origins have been recognised as risk factors causing chronic inflammation of the lungs. The link between smoking and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis has also been established. Diseases associated with inhaled nanoparticles include asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

Comment: DUH! Car pollution can damage brain:

Renowned Harvard psychologist calls ADHD a fraud that only benefits the pharmaceutical industry

Viewed by academics as one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century, Jerome Kagan ranked above Carl Jung (the founder of analytical psychology) and Ivan Pavlov (who discovered the Pavlovian reflex) in a 2002 American Psychological Association ranking of the eminent psychologists.

He is well-known for his pioneering work in developmental psychology at Harvard University, where he has spent decades documenting how babies and small children grow, and is an exceptional and highly-regarded researcher.

So it may be surprising to learn that he believes the diagnosis of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is an invention — and only benefits the pharmaceutical industry and psychiatrists.

Mislabeling Mental Illness

"That is the history of humanity: Those in authority believe they're doing the right thing, and they harm those who have no power", says Jerome Kagan.

The ubiquitous presence of glyphosate - now found in vaccines

© thebreakaway.wordpress.com
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's signature herbicide RoundUp, has become a pervasive toxin in the environment and food system. Many foods are now made with RoundUp Ready soy, corn, canola, and some of these same crops are fed to factory farmed animals for meat and dairy products.

This ubiquitous presence of glyphosate is not all that surprising, considering that U.S. farmland has been drenched with more than 2.6 billion pounds of glyphosate since 1992. Many grain and seed crops receive a dose of RoundUp just before harvest in a process known as desiccation.

Unfortunately, what all this means is that our bodies are receptacles for a chemical that the World Health Organization has labeled a "probable carcinogen."

In 2014, a shocking study found the presence of glyphosate in the breast milk of American mothers, with high levels found in three out of 10 samples. Monsanto soon funded and authored a follow up study which, unsurprisingly, found no glyphosate in breast milk.

Comment: Glyphosate is a serious toxic chemical and an endocrine disruptor to boot, meaning that it seriously messes with the hormone system!
Glyphosate's Toxicity

It should come as no surprise that sickness is becoming the normal state of health. Chronic diseases, once fairly rare, are now how we live and die. Diseases once seen almost exclusively in the elderly are now being seen in children. Autoimmune and neurological disorders are becoming common.

There are many potentially causative and contributory factors, but glyphosate has generally gotten a pass because it was considered "generally recognized as safe" - GRAS - for its apparently low toxicity. Indeed, short term studies appeared to confirm its innocence. However, long term studies of its effects on health weren't done until recently. The most insidious factor in glyphosate's toxicity has been the slow expression of harmful effects. Because of it, studies demonstrating glyphosate's insidious action inside the body - like those Samsel & Seneff reviewed - have been systematically ignored.

So glyphosate is now the most popular herbicide on earth, and that factor is driving the extent of harm it produces. It isn't just the fact of its toxicity that's at issue, it's the sheer volume of usage.

The proven and probable effects of glyphosate are manifold. The meteoric rise in chronic diseases and metabolic disorders has occurred during the same time period that glyphosate was introduced, and has followed a trajectory much like that of the herbicide's massive increase in use.

At some point, officials in power must take their heads out of the sand and address the evidence that ties glyphosate to the epidemic of chronic diseases. Samsel and Seneff have now collected, sorted, and logically extrapolated on evidence from studies, and they leave little question that there must be an association between the herbicide and the phenomenon of mass ill health.
