The Health & Wellness Show: Fluoroquinolone antibiotics: The devil in a pill

Fluoroquinolones (Cipro, Levaquin, Avelox and others) are one of the most prescribed antibiotics worldwide with nearly 26 million prescriptions being given a year. Fluoroquinolones are also the subjects of numerous lawsuits due to their debilitating, systemic side effects. Prescribed for even minor ailments, these drugs are linked to tendonitis, peripheral neuropathy, tooth loss, heart, liver and kidney issues, Gulf War Syndrome and even death. This is by no means a complete list of all of the side effects as the thousands of sufferers can attest.

Join us as we delve into the mechanisms and side effects of this evil drug and get armed with the knowledge to protect yourself and your loved ones from these evil drugs.

Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health segment where the topic will be factory farms, antibiotic resistance and superbugs.

St. Petersburg Metro Bombing, Syria Chemical Attack - Trump Folds to the 'Deep State'?

It's been an interesting few days in the world of geopolitically-relevant terror attacks and 'Trump vs. the Deep State' (both of which are far from mutually exclusive).

First we had the St. Petersburg attack where some young guy from Kyrgyzstan with no history of violence decided to detonate an IED on a train, killing himself and 14 innocent civilians. Russian police apparently found the DNA of Akbarzhon Jalilov, who had lived in Russia for a number of years, in the metro carriage where the explosion happened, and on a second unexploded device at another metro station. Of course, this doesn't mean that Jalilov acted alone or was the 'mastermind' of the atrocity. As I have hypothesized on several occasions, anyone naive or manipulatable enough to carry a backpack, given to them by someone else, to a specific location, can become an instant unwitting 'suicide bomber'.

So who might have been Jalilov's accomplices? According to the Western media, somewhere near the top of the list is Putin himself. The BBC had no problem in theorizing that the bombing was "some kind of attempt to distract attention from calls for a corruption investigation and calls for President Putin himself to step down..."

SOTT MINUTE: 'New' US Policy On Syria Is Not What It Seems!

© Sott.net

After six years of the United States setting up Assad as a brutal dictator, arming and funding terrorist 'moderate rebels', destroying Syrian infrastructure, laying waste to the Syrian nation, and initiating the refugee crisis, the US has decided maybe their genius plan to oust Assad wasn't the best idea after all. I'm Shane LaChance for Sott.net and this is The Sott Minute.

RT reports that US Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters Thursday that the new administration has changed their priorities regarding 'Assad must go'.

Haley said,
"Our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out."

"Our priority is to really look at how do we get things done, who do we need to work with to really make a difference for the people in Syria."

Behind the Headlines: A Tale of Two Governments: Trump vs 'the Intel Community'

What CNN sees...
Trump was elected on the basis of turning the US ship of state around: no more senseless wars, no more regime change operations, no more pay-to-play politics, and no more gutting the real US economy to feed the fake one. In short, 'draining the swamp' that is Washington, DC, and reversing US economic decline.

What we've instead seen under a Trump administration is more militarism overseas and legislative crises on the domestic front, all shrouded by a "vortex" (CNN's term) of "questions and tension at the White House" as Trump's agenda is lens-distorted by an entirely fictional 'Russian scandal'.

The so-called 'intelligence community' - really, a cabal of ruthlessly psychopathic 'reality-creators' with complete disregard for facts - effectively holds Trump hostage via the media. And that, in itself, points to something unprecedented: the degree to which the media - in the US and across 'Westernia' - is aligned with the cabal against Trump.

Day after day, on issue after issue, from giving public speeches to meeting foreign leaders, the media twists everything Trump's administration says or attempts to do. The White House attempts to communicate with the public via social media and daily email newsletters, but even in this medium it is drowned out by media distortion.

This week we go Behind the Headlines to find out what's really going on in Trumpland, and probably much more. Join your hosts at 6pm CET 12 noon EST for our usual lively discussion.

The Health & Wellness Show: Meet the Meat You'd Never Eat!

Maastricht University physiologist Mark Post is expected to grill a patty of lab-grown meat that has taken two years and €250,000 ($338,000) to produce. (Google)
On this episode of the Health and Wellness Show we look into the future of food, where the science is going and what we can expect in the coming years. In the food science world it is not what can be created but what will be accepted. New high tech foods are easy to create in a lab with enough financial backing though the trouble the industry is having is getting the consumer to overcome the 'yuck factor'. Artificial meat research, genetically modified animals, cloned meat, lab grown-test tube meat, bleeding veggie burgers -- nothing is too far out for big corporations looking to make a profit off of the notion that consumers want save the Earth while eating 'healthy clean meat'.

Join us for a lively discussion and stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health segment where the topic will be the pet food industry.

#Pedogate: Human trafficking and pedophilia a silent epidemic, cops and politicians involved

While stories like the FBI investigating President Trump's 'Russian connections,' the London Car/Knife Attack, and the flop that was the GOP's new healthcare plan dominate the headlines, there were a number of stories that just fell through the cracks.... into the basement, where they were murdered, chopped up, burnt, and the remains buried by Hillary's goons.

Jennifer Williamson posted a short video that went viral of her son, Aaron, getting a thorough pat-down all because he has Sensory Processing Disorder and she requested an alternate screening procedure. They were held for over an hour, missed their flight, and then Aaron was given a ridiculously intense groping by a creepy TSA agent. Here's the video:

Behind the Headlines: Car Terror Attack in London, Crimea Flashpoint, Imperial Hypocrisy in Syria

"Hell is empty and all the devils are here", or so it seems as major events on our planet continue to be typified by chaos, recklessness and fecklessness under the stewardship of a cabal of 'reality creators' with complete disregard for facts.

This last week has seen a uptick in tension in the area of Crimea/Ukraine with the US launching 'Spring Storm' military exercises using the coast of Romania to practice a land invasion. Where were they practicing for? Russia seems to be in no doubt that Crimea, just across the black sea, was the real future target, and while the US exercises were ongoing, the Russian military announced surprise unprecedented military maneuvers on the Crimean peninsula. The US wasn't happy of course, and neither were their lackeys in Kiev.

One day after the exercises ended, a massive explosion occurred at a Ukraine arms depot near Kharkiv, about 60 miles from both the front lines of the conflict in East Ukraine and from the Russian border. It seems most of the missiles and rockets and other ammunition were destroyed. Russia of course was blamed by Kiev, with Poroshenko tweeting that he may ask NATO to come in to "demine" the area (NATO doesn't do demining). The real culprits however, are probably much closer to home.

Imperial hypocrisy was on full display this week as the US continues to blow the hell out of Mosul and its population in its alleged attempt to defeat ISIS in the city. The fact that ISIS is largely a creation of the US and its Gulf allies, and that Russia was able to liberate Aleppo with very few civilian casualties, has been lost in the western media hubris.

Meanwhile in London, "ISIS'" new tactic of 'car terror' came to the 'heart of power' in London, Westminster, with a 'lone wolf' knocking down several people on Westminster bridge before crashing into the railings outside the Houses of Parliament. Above and beyond the goals of spreading more fear among the people of Europe and provoking religious tension, was someone sending a message to the British political elite? And in the USA, mass casualty shootings continued apace.

What is the world coming to?

This week on Behind the Headlines we'll be discussing these subjects and probably much more. Join your hosts at 6pm CET 12 noon EST for our usual lively discussion.

US 'Spring Storm', Ukraine Weapons Depot Explosion, Russia Snap Military Exercises Crimea: Connection?

Has anyone noticed how the mainstream media tends to dispense 'news' stories to the public as if they were isolated incidents unconnected to anything else? Silly question, I know. After all, you're probably reading SOTT.net for that very reason (among others). There were a few significant events over the past week concerning Crimea and the ongoing geopolitical 'war' between the USA and Russia that fit this pattern of media obtuseness to a 'tee', with no context or dot connecting whatsoever, despite the fact that the connections were just screaming to be made.

First, the American landing ship, the USS Carter Hall, with marines on board, crossed the Bosporus Strait and arrived in the Black Sea last Friday for "joint drills with the Romanian Navy." As can be seen from video released of the exercises, these were on a large scale and involved other landing craft like hovercraft, not to mention air support from military jets.

The Health & Wellness Show: ‌Chemical Cocktails: Vaccine Excipients and the Autism Question

On this episode of the Health and Wellness show we take another look into the vaccine issue. The public believes that vaccines are specified viruses in sterile solutions free from undesirable contaminants. The stark reality is much different! Don't expect the mainstream media, health authorities, doctors or government agencies to to give you all the facts.

Contaminated faulty vaccines based on poor research have damaged hundreds of thousands of children all over the world causing an epidemic in childhood allergies, autoimmune disorders brain inflammation, developmental delays and Autism. Close to 1 million children will be diagnosed with Autism this year. What are these numbers saying about the chemical cocktails that are being injected into children at an alarming rate, fueling a 50 Billion dollar vaccine industry? While 'health organizations' continue to deny any relationship between Autism and vaccination. Scientists outside the US are researching the 'synergistic toxicity' of chemicals such as aluminum, and mercury and are presenting peer-reviewed science making a clear connection between immune activation events, aluminum adjuvants, and Autism.

Join us as we discuss this hotly debated topic and what can be done to slow or even reverse this heartbreaking epidemic.

Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health segment at the end of the show. The topic is, "Why cats are vomiting, and what can you do about it?"

Westminster 'Car Terror' Attack Raises Questions

Another 'terror attack'. Another outpouring of sympathy, this time 'for London'. Another round of media hypocrisy that willfully ignores the obvious explanation for and solution to these kinds of incidents.

On Wednesday 22nd March, around 2.40pm, we're told that a 'lone wolf', named as 52-year-old Khalid Masood, drove a black SUV along the sidewalk of the 252m-long Westminster bridge, knocking down at least 12 pedestrians and killing two of them. The SUV is about 6 feet wide and the sidewalk about 12 feet wide. There are vehicles on one side and the stone balustrade of the bridge on the other. The SUV was traveling at at least 60mph. So this was a rather difficult, if horrific, feat to carry out.

Leaving the bridge, Masood turned left towards the 'front' of the Houses of Parliament where he mounted the sidewalk and crashed the SUV into railings near the Carriage Gate entrance which is a 'weak spot' guarded by unarmed officers.

Exiting the vehicle, he tried to enter the grounds of the building and was confronted by a police officer whom he stabbed. The attacker was then shot dead by another plain clothes police officer. This was a clear attack on the 'center of power' in the UK that was designed to and succeeded (no doubt) in striking a particular chord with the British political elite.

As is often the case with such attacks in Western nations, news reports (like this BBC news segment) released immediately after the attack cited eyewitnesses who claimed there were two people in the car, one described as black with a goatee beard (matching the description of the man shot by police outside Parliament) and the other a white, bald male. But with only one man shot and killed and the official narrative reflecting this, these initial eyewitness reports have been shunted down the memory hole, never to be heard again.
