    Ballooning Diabetes Rates Highlight the High Cost of Cheap Food

    The recent case of an American toddler diagnosed with type 2 diabetes highlights the severity of the problems our modern processed food diet causes. According to Reuters,1 the three-year old girl, who weighed in at 77 pounds, is one of the youngest persons ever diagnosed with this obesity-related disease.

    In the past, type 2 diabetes was referred to as “adult onset” diabetes, and most patients were in the senior category. But as our diets and lifestyles have changed, so has the disease.

    And, while lack of exercise is certainly a factor, one would be hard-pressed to accuse a two-year old of being too sedentary. Clearly, diet plays a more important role in individuals this young. So what’s wrong with children’s diets these days?

      Can We Trust the New USDA Dietary Guidelines to Keep us Healthy?

      Our national government’s attempts at issuing dietary guidelines are usually inappropriate and ludicrous. Unfortunately, those guidelines dictate what the average certified dietitian offers as sound dietary advice. If you’ve ever had to eat hospital food, you were the recipient of a dietitian’s control over the hospital’s kitchen.

      Today there are virtual food fights over different dietary approaches. It seems the advocates of each diet want to create a following and promote how their particular approach to eating assures longevity and good health. But there is no one size fits all diet.

      This isn’t about therapeutic diets for overcoming specific diseases, especially cancer. Rather, this commentary is about assigned bureaucrats effort to decree a day to day dietary intake for maintaining one’s health. A recent article decrying current national efforts at dictating dietary advice by journalist Nina Teicholz was recently published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal).

      Nina authored The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. Her book received accolades from literally hundreds of Amazon reviewers and some New York based magazines. Those responses struck this author as a carnivores’ chorus of affirmation with a prolonged amen.

        New Congressional Bills Aim to Protect Consumer Access to Raw Milk

        Federal bills have been introduced that will make it easier to sell raw milk across state borders—but they need our support to succeed.

        Late last week, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Chellie Pingree (D-ME), and a bipartisan coalition of sixteen other lawmakers including Jared Polis (D-CO), have reintroduced two important bills, the Milk Freedom Act and the Interstate Milk Freedom Act.

        The Milk Freedom Act would prohibit the government from interfering with the interstate traffic of raw milk products. The Interstate Milk Freedom Act would explicitly allow the shipment of raw milk between two states where the sale of raw milk is already legal.

        While the goals of these bills may seem rather modest, their passage would mean a huge step forward, given the lunacy of the government’s current stance on raw milk.

          Is Raw Milk Cheese About To Get The Axe?

          Now it appears that Barack Obama’s FDA is going after our best domestic artisanal cheeses, also often made from raw milk.

          What is the stated rationale for this? The FDA and Health Canada issued a joint assessment claiming a higher incidence of listeriosis—the disease caused by the food-borne pathogen listeria—in cheese made from raw milk as compared to cheese made from pasteurized milk. Consider these facts about listeria. Recent evidence from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that, between 2009 and 2011, cheese made from raw milk accounted for one listeria outbreak and fifteen illnesses, whereas cheese from pasteurized milk caused five outbreaks and thirty-six illnesses.

          Let’s put this in further perspective. The CDC determined that between 1993 and 2006, all raw milk products combined caused 202 hospitalizations and two deaths. If the FDA is truly motivated by food-safety concerns, why not take a more aggressive stance towards Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), since contaminated meat and poultry sicken an estimated one million people and kill at least one thousand each year?

          If the FDA receives enough messages protesting the path they are clearly on to ban raw milk cheese, they will likely back off for fear of offending Congress, which has to listen to the voters—so please take action on this issue!

            Report: "Fermented" Cod Liver Oil a Fraud

            The alternative health/natural foods world was shocked yesterday by a new report published by Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, stating that “fermented” cod liver oil is allegedly not what it is advertised to be according to lab testing. The report suggests that the product is rancid and adulterated. This “fermented” cod liver oil is fully supported by the Weston A. Price Foundation, where Dr. Daniel currently serves as Vice President.

            David Gumpert of The Complete Patient broke the story yesterday (Saturday August 22, 2015), but his website is currently down at the time of this writing.

            The significance of this report cannot be understated, since the company manufacturing this “fermented” cod liver oil has a virtual monopoly on the product, with many consumers depending upon it for health purposes. Some, such as Dr. Ron Schmid, have gone so far as to claim that the product has damaged their health.

            We are expecting a rebuttal from Green Pasture, the company in question, and will post a link to it as soon as they publish it.

            As the owner and founder of Tropical Traditions, I take the matter of transparency and integrity of food products very seriously, and I encourage the Weston A. Price Foundation to conduct a full investigation into this matter, and cooperate with Dr. Daniels. We, along with everyone else in the alternative media and natural food industry, will be watching very carefully to see how Dr. Daniels is treated in her effort to protect consumers’ health.

              How to Make Your own Lacto-Fermented Salsa

              Salsa is widely loved for its ability to spice up – or simply add flavor to – any dish, Mexican-themed or not. Unfortunately, it is hard to find good salsa in regular markets. With the high pesticide content of peppers, tomatoes, and onions along with the genetic modification of tomatoes, what was once a healthful addition to the meal has now become a big question mark on the table.

              To really get the most bang for your buck, making homemade salsa from ingredients you know and trust is always your best bet. While ingredients can be combined into a spicy concoction and then canned to preserve them, many are coming around to fermentation as a means of making delicious, organic salsa.

              Here’s a recipe you can use to make your own fermented salsa.

                Saturated Fat Helps Avoid Diabetes

                About one in three Americans now has diabetes or pre-diabetes. That’s nearly 80 million people, the majority of whom suffer from type 2 diabetes – a preventable and, often, reversible condition.

                The problem is that many Americans are unaware that the foods they’re eating could be setting them up for a dietary disaster, and this isn’t their fault. Public health guidelines condemn healthy fats from foods like butter and full-fat dairy and recommend whole grains and cereals – the opposite of what a person with diabetes, or any person really, needs to stay healthy.

                For the last 50 years, Americans have been told to eat a high complex carbohydrate, low saturated fat diet. Even diabetics have been told to eat 50 to 60 percent of their daily calories in the form of processed carbs!

                Research, including a new study involving dolphins, again suggests that this movement away from traditional full-fat foods is contributing to the rising rates of diabetes and metabolic syndrome across the globe.

                  The Illusion of Choices in Choosing a Restaurant - Toxic Factory Food from a Handful of Suppliers

                  There are dozens of chain restaurants from which we can choose when we go out to eat. Some are fast-food eateries with counters for ordering, and others are traditional sit-down table service restaurants. Probably McDonalds is the most well-known fast-food chain, but dozens of other chains dot the landscape of towns and cities throughout America.

                  As of 2012, there were 263,944 fast food restaurants in America with a combined revenue of well over $100 billion.

                  If we set aside all the reasons for eating in specific fast-food restaurants, and only focus on the quality of food that is served, then where should we eat? Which restaurants offer the least toxic food?

                  It might appear that we have dozens of choices, but this is actually an illusion. The difference between one fast-food restaurant and the next is negligible when considering the high levels of toxic ingredients that are in the food.

                    How to Make Water Kefir as a Refreshing and Healthy Beverage

                    Much like milk kefir grains, the origin of water kefir grains is shrouded in mystery. One thing is known, however, about this fermented beverage – it is one of the tastiest cultured foods you can consume. Many liken it to making your own probiotic soda without the high sugar content.

                    Indeed, a refreshing carbonated beverage can be made from water kefir through an airtight second fermentation. The first fermentation is where it begins, though, with a simple mixture of water kefir grains, sugar, and water. Many additions can be made to water kefir – even during the first fermentation – and it is up to the home brewer to decide for themselves what it is that they and their grains prefer.

                      How to Make Homemade Lacto-Fermented Crunchy Dill Pickles

                      Besides the health benefits, one of the many wonders of using lactic acid fermentation as a means of preserving food is its versatility. While this recipe has that perfect dill and garlic cucumber pickle flavor, the recipe can be applied to any similar organic vegetable coming from the garden or market such as zucchini, yellow summer squash, Swiss chard stems, and even organic watermelon rinds.

                      One of the more important facets of learning the art of vegetable fermentation is to be able to identify when a vegetable has fully fermented. There are a wide range of recommended days for the fermentation process, which can leave the home-fermenter perplexed. Instead of relying on these recommendations which may only apply in certain circumstances or climates, it is often better to look for signs of complete fermentation.

                          September 4, 2013, a San Bernardino County social worker instructed the mother of two-year-old Melina to “pack up her daughters stuff…she belongs to the county now.”

                          Heavenly Ramos of Upland California, the mother of Melina, had her daughter removed from her home based on allegations that she had 5 bone fractures, all with different levels of healing, throughout her body.

                          Christopher McCown, who had been with Heavenly and little Melina since she was two months old, raced home after a 2 hour interrogation by CPS, but he was moments too late. In tears, Heavenly recalls him saying,

                          “I didn’t even get to say good bye…they took her and I couldn’t even tell her how much I love her.”

                          Eleven months after that day, CPS removed their other child, newborn son Jacob, hours after his birth. The couple now has no children left at home.

                            In California in 2004, AB 2943 was introduced by the California Assembly and passed, going into effect in 2006.

                            Considered a precautionary measure, it prohibited injections to children under three and pregnant women with vaccines containing 0.5 micrograms of mercury per 0.5 milliliter of vaccine dose in multiple vaccine packages such as the MMR and DTaP three in one vaccines.

                            The California Immunization Coalition (CIC), a quasi-public agency, sent a letter to the Secretary of the California Health and Human Services requesting the exemption be exercised for this flu season because there is a shortage of flu vaccines, especially the nasal mist vaccine Fluzone, manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur.

                            Concerned California activists allegedly reached Sanofi by phone twice recently and were told there is no shortage of the Fluzone vaccine that complies completely with California’s AB 2943.

                              20 Year Old Autistic Girl in Michigan Medically Kidnapped Over Treatment Disagreement

                              Savannah Garcia, or Hannah, as she is known to those who love her, is a fun-loving young lady who is an important part of her community in Traverse City, Michigan. The 20 year old is a regular fixture at her neighborhood ballpark, where she cheers on her favorite players, and she is well-loved by all who know her. She loves her dog, her family and friends, stuffed animals, frappes, and her fiance. Even though she is autistic, she has been living in an apartment attended by a care team, and has been involved in making many of her own choices.

                              Until September 4, 2015.

                              That was the day that 2 doctors at Munson Medical Center filed a petition to remove Hannah’s mother as her guardian and to name a person completely unknown to the family, Stephanie Strehl, as her guardian. She is now a prisoner being held against her will, and the will of her family, at Munson Medical Center.

                              The guardian Stephanie Strehl has forbidden every single one of Hannah’s friends to see her. Her family, including her brother and grandparents, aren’t allowed to visit her. Her mother has been the only loved one permitted by the new guardian to visit her, for 3 hours per day. At the end of last week, Hannah’s sister was granted the privilege of visiting her for up to 1 hour a day. She lives and attends medical school 5 hours round-trip away.

                              Her attorney can see her, IF he notifies them 48 hours in advance, and then he is only allowed 30 minutes.

                              When she goes to the bathroom or takes a shower, she isn’t even allowed to shut the door.

                              She isn’t permitted to attend meetings where people other than her family are making decisions for her life and future. Therapies that were previously scheduled before her confinement at Munson have allegedly been cancelled, and her caregivers all dismissed.

                              Even the right to receive mail, another right retained by convicted felons, has been taken away from Hannah since around September 21.

Therefore, when offered a series of vaccinations said to protect her newborn baby against disease in the first few weeks of life, she will probably accept the vaccinations without a moment’s hesitation.

                                However, would she accept those vaccinations so readily if she knew that her unborn child was going to be used as part of a vaccine experiment being conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the vaccine manufacturers?

                                  Foster care and adoptions ramrodded through the system despite willing extended family members to take them in. And worst, children are lost for years within the foster system, over-drugged, abused, even trafficked into horrible situations. All of these have been documented by MedicalKidnap.com, as well as many others.

                                            Cannabis for the Treatment of Epilepsy, and More

                                            Many drugs are developed not because there’s a great medical need, but rather because there’s big money to be made from them.

                                            In many cases, holistic therapies and medicines already exist that can take the place of any number of synthetic pharmaceuticals. Cannabis is one such therapy, and according to Dr. Gedde, “it’s time to ask questions and look at a new way of thinking about this plant.”

                                            A wealth of research shows marijuana does indeed have outstanding promise as a medicinal plant, largely due to its cannabidiol (CBD) content. Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body.

                                            There are cannabinoid receptors in your brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system, and more. Both the therapeutic and psychoactive properties of marijuana occur when a cannabinoid activates a cannabinoid receptor.

                                            According to Dr. Gedde, cannabis is certainly far safer than most prescription drugs, and there’s enough information to compare it against the known toxicities of many drugs currently in use. This includes liver and kidney toxicity, gastrointestinal damage, nerve damage and, of course, death. Moreover, cannabidiol and other cannabis products often work when other medications fail, so not only are they generally safer, cannabis preparations also tend to provide greater efficacy.

                                              Are Your Casual Clothes Toxic?

                                              A Greenpeace report has found that several major sportswear brands—including Adidas, Nike, and Puma—contain polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), and phthalates. All of these chemicals are linked to major health issues. PFCs, which make items stain-proof, are linked to problems like low birth weight and prostate cancer; phthalates are linked to attention deficit disorder, asthma, breast cancer, obesity, and behavioral and neurodevelopmental issues; and NPEs degrade into hormone-disrupting chemicals.

                                              Experts advise that consumers avoid clothing that is crease-free, moth-repellant, stain-resistant, or fire-retardant, as these properties are typically achieved by using the above-mentioned toxic chemicals. In workout clothes, screen-printing and plastic prints are an indication of the presence of phthalates. Natural and organic fabrics like silk, cotton, and wool are the safest choice, as they are naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial and good at thermal regulation.

                                                  How to Survive Prostate Cancer Without Surgery, Drugs, or Radiation

                                                  Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. In the US, about 221,800 men get diagnosed every year yet only about 27,500 die each year from the disease. Unfortunately, the conventional treatment for prostate cancer leaves much to be desired.

                                                  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a therapy that didn’t involve costly and hazardous surgery, drugs, or radiation?

                                                  Peter Starr, an award-winning filmmaker, recently produced the documentary Surviving Prostate Cancer Without Surgery, Drugs, or Radiation. He’s also in the process of writing a book on the same subject.

                                                  In June 2004, he was in fact diagnosed with prostate cancer, and as his film and book title reveals, today, 11 years later, he’s still here to share his story.

                                                      The Health Benefits of Drinking Coffee and Tea

                                                      In its recommendations for the 2015 edition of Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a government advisory committee, for the first time, said Americans could safely consume up to five cups of coffee a day, or approximately 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine, with no detrimental effects.

                                                      The recommendation was based on an evaluation of multiple meta-analyses and other studies evaluating the link between coffee and chronic diseases, including cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.

                                                      While coffee has long gotten a bad rap because of its caffeine content, it also contains beneficial antioxidants, including significant amounts of hydrocinnamic acid and polyphenols.

                                                      In fact, coffee is the number one source of antioxidants in the US diet, with researchers noting “nothing else even comes close.” The antioxidants may even help neutralize the harsher effects of the caffeine that coffee naturally contains.

                                                      It’s not only coffee that’s rich in antioxidants and provides a healthy addition to water for your beverage options. Tea ranks right up alongside coffee in terms of health benefits, so choose whichever you prefer (or drink both!). Although coffee is the most popular beverage in the US, tea takes the number one spot globally.

                                                        This is the final part in a two part series about the spraying of toxic particles in the atmosphere. The spraying of nanoparticles of aluminum, barium, strontium, and other substances produces persistent contrails that spread out over the course of a day to form artificial clouds in the skies over America and large parts of the world. The first article described the creation of these clouds by jet aircraft and described the health consequences.

                                                        Regardless of why persistent contrails are being sprayed, the health hazards are serious. The aluminum that is in the spray is associated with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, autism, developmental delays, and other neurological conditions. These particles can enter into any cell of the body and cause Inflammation and disrupt normal life processes. Heart disease, pulmonary failure, and cancer are linked to high level exposure to particulates in the atmosphere.

                                                        President Obama recently spoke on climate change and said that the climate problem, “is not simply a danger to be avoided – this is an opportunity to be seized.” It appears that Monsanto and other corporations are getting in line to seize the opportunities that are about to develop. Monsanto is developing abiotic seeds, which will be able to withstand drought and severe storms. So, if your country is having unusually stormy weather or is experiencing drought, then Monsanto seeds will still give you a crop, while your neighbors who don’t use Monsanto seeds will experience crop failures.

                                                        Monsanto also has a solution for all the nanoparticles of aluminum that are being sprayed into the air, and which eventually fall to the ground where it accumulates in the soil at highly toxic levels. Monsanto has developed an aluminum resistant gene that they can insert into the next generation of their seeds. This means that it won’t matter how much aluminum accumulates in the soil from aerial spraying, because Monsanto crops will still thrive, while the crops grown from non-GMO seeds will just turn yellow and die because of the excess aluminum.

                                                        Monsanto will be ready for the future and will have seeds for every contingency.

Although Dr. Humphries primary interest is in the study of vaccinations, she has realized that: “Much of what I have learned in my medical education is lacking in details on how to support the biology of the human being. When people are just a little bit sick or when they are healthy, it can be very helpful to support the chemistry of the body using earth products that were put here for us and not necessarily the ones the drug companies have made for us.”

                                                          Dr. Humphries states that since she has learned to use vitamin C, not only has her own health become extraordinarily better, but her prescription writing has gone down significantly and the health of her patients has improved. Dr. Humphries states that vitamin C can completely eliminate whooping cough, and prevent diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Advancing science has made it quite clear that these organisms play a major role in your health, both mental and physical.

                                                            Much of the research to date has focused on the role of microbes in your gut and skin health, but this is only the beginning. Your eyes have a microbiome, too, one that has been largely neglected by researchers to the extent that its functions remain unknown.1

Their findings add to the growing knowledge that modern lifestyles are tinkering with our microbiomes… with potentially dangerous effects.

In the early 1990s I was busy making genetically modified plants (often called GMOs for Genetically Modified Organisms) as part of the research that led to my PhD. I was not, at the outset, concerned about the possible effects of GM plants on human health or the environment.

                                                                    I now believe, as a much more experienced scientist, that GMO crops still run far ahead of our understanding of their risks. I have become much more appreciative of the complexity of biological organisms and their capacity for benefits and harms. As a scientist I have become much more humble about the capacity of science to do more than scratch the surface in its understanding of the deep complexity and diversity of the natural world. To paraphrase a cliché, I more and more appreciate that as scientists we understand less and less.

                                                                    I have read numerous GMO risk assessment applications. These are the documents that governments rely on to ‘prove’ their safety. Though these documents are quite long and quite complex, their length is misleading in that they primarily ask (and answer) trivial questions. Furthermore, the experiments described within them are often very inadequate and sloppily executed. Scientific controls are often missing, procedures and reagents are badly described, and the results are often ambiguous or uninterpretable. I do not believe that this ambiguity and apparent incompetence is accidental.

                                                                    To any honest observer, reading these applications is bound to raise profound and disturbing questions: about the trustworthiness of the applicants and equally of the regulators. They are impossible to reconcile with a functional regulatory system capable of protecting the public.

Unfortunately, the level of glyphosate contamination was very high, much higher than any of the organic grains they had tested.

                                                                      So the search for glyphosate-tested feed that returned a zero result for glyphosate began. Due to the GMO contamination of USDA certified corn as well, it was determined to drop organic corn from the feed. It has now been replaced with milo (sorghum), a popular poultry feed ingredient in southern cultures. The Tropical Traditions Cocofeed is also soy-free, and includes coconut pulp.

                                                                      Tropical Traditions had to test each ingredient separately, and be sure that the test represented the entire batch from a specific harvest sourced back to the producers. This week (September 2015), pastured chickens raised on this glyphosate-tested feed are now available for purchase by the public.

And as we reported this week, scientists have increasingly raised new alarms about potential negative health impacts tied to Roundup, including a recent study suggesting that long-term exposure to tiny amounts of the chemical (thousands of times lower than what is allowed in drinking water in the US) could lead to liver and kidney problems.

It would respect the wishes of a growing number of consumers who insist they have a right to know what foods they are buying and how they were produced.”

                                                                              Our society is largely built on the idea that science can help us make good, solid decisions. But now we’re facing a world so rife with problems caused by the very sciences that were supposed to keep us healthy, safe, and productive, it’s quite clear that we’re heading toward more than one proverbial brick wall. In a sense, the fundamental role of science itself has been hijacked for selfish gain. Looking back, you can now see that the preferred business model of an industry was created first, followed by “scientific evidence” that supports the established business model.

                                                                              When the science doesn’t support the company’s economic gains, it’s swept under the rug, even if people are dying and the planet is becoming irreparably poisoned as a result. Today we live in a world where chemical companies and biotech giants can easily buy and pay for their own research studies, as well as the lobbying to support whatever legislation they need passed in their favor. Conflicts of interest have become the norm within virtually all fields of science, which creates a completely unworkable – and dangerous – situation in the long run.

                                                                                This comes after the House of Representatives passed a bill last month that would block states from enacting their own labeling laws and make it nearly impossible for the FDA ever to implement national mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.

                                                                                Titled “GMOs, Herbicides, and Public Health,” the paper by Philip J. Landrigan, M.D. and Charles Benbrook, Ph.D. focuses on the widespread adoption of GMO crops across the U.S. and the resulting explosion in the use of toxic herbicides – some of them, like Monsanto’s glyphosate, linked to cancer – and argues that labeling these foods is a matter of protecting public health.

                                                                                  Dr Robin Mesnage and co-authors examined a number of different types of toxic effects to arrive at their conclusions, including liver and kidney toxicity, neurotoxicity, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, and teratogenicity (ability to cause birth defects).

                                                                                  Unlike regulatory authorities, the researchers considered studies from the independent literature, as well as the few industry toxicity studies, conducted in support of regulatory approvals, that have been made public. They shared this approach of considering the entirety of the published literature with the World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC, which recently concluded that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen.

                                                                                  The new review shows that endocrine (hormone) disruptive effects can occur below the doses deemed not to cause any toxic effects in industry studies performed for regulatory approvals. Endocrine disruption may increase the risk of certain types of cancer. Yet regulatory studies do not test low dose exposures for endocrine disruptive effects.

The study was published by the Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, in September 2015 as “Topical Oil Application and Trans-Epidermal Water Loss in Preterm Very Low Birth Weight Infants-A Randomized Trial.”

                                                                                      The researchers’ objective was to determine coconut oil’s protection against trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). There have been many attempts at resolving preterm and term birth water loss among newborns that are more along the technical lines of Western medicine’s hospital hardware.

                                                                                      This was the first study that focused on the traditional Indian method of massaging the infants with coconut oil. The researchers discovered the coconut oil treated infants had significantly lower TEWL than the group that was not treated topically with coconut oil. Those coconut oil treated newborn infants were without skin bacterial colonization and displayed an overall better quality of skin than the untreated group.

He was getting really worried and was even beginning to think this was the end of his life, when we got him to the hospital he said that he wouldn’t be coming back out.

At the hospital the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with him.

The unsaturated fat was soybean oil, and the saturated fat was coconut oil, along with a fructose.

The study was conducted in the Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Kannur Dental College, in Kerala, India.

                                                                                                      Oil pulling is a technique that has become popular where one takes a spoonful of coconut oil and swishes it around in their mouth (without swallowing) for 15 minutes or so. Many health benefits are claimed from following such a practice, but so far published research has only documented the dental benefits. Even “mainstream” dentists in the United States are reporting benefits they are seeing in their patient’s dental health among those who regularly practice oil pulling.

But is this common title used so often in modern culture really biblical? Would believers in Jesus Christ in the First Century, among whom are the writers of the New Testament portion of the Bible, have used this term as a title, representing leaders and authorities?

                                                                                                        Who will follow the one true Pastor Jesus, who is the rightful owner of the one true flock, and tend to his sheep under his leadership? Who will pray in faith with the power and authority of Jesus to affect true healing for the multitudes that are suffering in the 21st century? Who will deal with the disease and effects of sin and receive the forgiveness from Jesus that cleanses and heals?

If you are like most people, you enjoying giving gifts to others more than you do receiving gifts. However, the joy you receive back in seeing someone accept your gift is 100% dependent on that person deciding to receive it. If they don’t take it, they rob you of the joy you receive in giving the gift.

                                                                                                          Did you know that your unwillingness to receive gifts could keep you from entering the kingdom of God?

Scientism is the belief that science is the best and only trustworthy method to discover truth. Supernatural explanations are a priori ruled out. The result is atheism dressed up as science.

The video shows two actors posing as employees of a human biologics company discussing with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted fetuses, using partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

                                                                                                              Selling and buying fetal body parts is against federal law, a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000.

                                                                                                              Planned Parenthood denies that they are selling fetal body parts, and claims that the money discussed is related to transportation costs.

Can machines think? Is it possible that a computer could have intentions and desires and understanding of its own?

                                                                                                                Many otherwise well-informed people have taken it for granted that machines are capable of thought, particularly if a substantial level of complexity is reached. Several philosophers and scientists have argued that AI is not possible — machines will never be capable of thought. They are right to deny the possibility of AI. The arguments against AI are several.

In Germany, the “science” of eugenics was used by the Nazi Party to “eliminate” over 11 million men, women, and children.

                                                                                                                  The term “eugenics” has fallen out of favor and is no longer a politically correct word to use, because of its negative stigmatization. But has the philosophy behind “eugenics” simply been replaced with the “new science” of genetics, and the mapping of the human genome?

                                                                                                                  Is there reason to suspect hidden motivations of certain groups who want us to be convinced that our genes, and only our genes, control every aspect of our health and well-being? Can we trust everything we hear about the benefits of genetic research? Is there a dark side to genetics? Is America heading down the same path that eugenics led us in the past, and that led Nazi Germany up to World War II?

                                                                                                                    The word Eugenics means “good genes.” Eugenicists believe that principles of Darwin’s theory regarding “the survival of the fittest” can be used to support the elimination of weak and undesirable people from society.

                                                                                                                    When Adolf Hitler applied Darwin’s theory of evolution and the principles of eugenics to the goals of the German state, the result was the murder of eleven million men, women and children. These lives were sacrificed in the name of eugenics. Eugenicists were seeking to improve the conditions of life for humanity by creating a “superior” race of people.

                                                                                                                    The eugenics movement had a very dark side, which led to social control, loss of reproductive freedom, and the loss of life. Should we be concerned that modern genetic science might have a dark side as well? Will the fruit of genetic research be misused by ill-intentioned people to gain control over others as happened with eugenics in the past? Has modern genetics completely severed itself from its roots? Or, might it become the tool that will be used to try to control the lives of certain groups of people in America today, such as those who refuse vaccines?

                                                                                                                      A poll of doctors from 2006 found that at least 34 percent of U.S. physicians think intelligence played a role in the origin of humans. That’s a very significant portion of doctors who support intelligent design.

                                                                                                                      On the flipside, evolutionary science has hindered medical research by promulgating the now-defunct concept of “junk DNA”. That’s the evolution-based idea that most of the DNA in human cells is useless junk. It’s now known that the vast majority of our DNA has function, but evolution discouraged research into “junk DNA.” In this regard, with its faulty understanding of “the human person” as being the result of strictly blind physical mechanisms, evolution has obstructed “advances in medicine.”

                                                                                                                      Many other examples could be given. For another, evolutionary science has wrongly assumed that many organs are “vestigial” and thus unnecessary or unimportant. Those organs include the appendix, tonsils, coccyx, and thyroid. It’s now known that each of those organs plays an important role in human physiology. By presuming nonfunctionality or reduced functionality in these organs, evolutionary science did great medical damage to many patients.

There are three main reasons.

                                                                                                                        First, the term “evolution” can mean several different things, ranging from (1) the scientifically uncontroversial idea of “change over time” (think of small-scale variations in the shape and size of Galapagos finch beaks) to (2) the more controversial notion of universal common ancestry (think of Darwin’s tree of life) to (3) the increasingly controversial idea that the mechanism of natural selection and random mutation have produced all the forms of life we see today without any guidance or design. The last meaning of “evolution” is what Richard Dawkins calls the “Blind Watchmaker” thesis.

He has served eight years of a ten-year prison sentence, and he is now fighting a new charge that would put him behind bars for the rest of his life. His next trial starts Monday May 18th.

                                                                                                                          Kent Hovind’s teachings, much like many of the topics we cover here at Health Impact News, go against mainstream media and education regarding such topics as the medical system, vaccines, GMOs, and of course Darwinian biology. Mr. Hovind was a biology science teacher for 15 years before he began a full-time creation ministry.

                                                                                                                          Did Mr. Hovind actually break any laws, or is he a political prisoner? He was charged and convicted for “structuring,” which is the “crime” of taking too much cash out of your own bank account. The judge in the case called Mr. Hovind “worse than a rapist.”
