    Autism is Avoidable, Treatable, and Curable - The Chlorine Dioxide Protocol Part 2

    Kerri Rivera made the following remarks about the Chlorine Dioxide Protocol during her 2019 presentation at AutismOne. She stated:

    “Autism is avoidable, treatable, and curable.

    I have seen the faces of the children. I have met them. I have spoken with them and with the mothers, the parents, and the families who got their lives back. They are back – they are totally back from autism – and I want to share that with you.

    The CD protocol is tried and true. This is the tenth year for this protocol.

    I appreciate you keeping an open mind for recovering yourself and your children from illness, especially autism.

    For those of you who want the information about the CD protocol and are ready for it, here it is. I am happy to help you and I wish you all the best in your journey.”

    The protocol brings about healing by killing pathogens, resolving systemic inflammation, and revitalizing damaged immune system functioning. It addresses candida, bacteria, parasites, viruses, and heavy metals.

    The CD protocol is not just for autism. It also addresses conditions such as Asperger’s, PANDAS, PANS, PITAND, ADD and ADHD, and PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder-not otherwise specified) which is often another label for autism. These related conditions can exist side by side with autism, overlap with it, or be separate from it.

    If 557 people have already lost their autistic diagnosis through the use of the CD protocol, then how many more must be set free from this modern illness before the scientific and medical communities will wake up and recognize the truth that autism can be treated and cured?

      Google and Wikipedia Team Together To Suppress Alternative Health Information

      Ask anyone on the street prior to 1990 what the term “search engine” meant, and you would probably get a shrug of the shoulders and a guess, like searching for an automobile replacement engine or something.

      Today, people use the Internet to search for information about 6 billion times a day, easily accessing far more data than all of today’s mainstream news outlets put together.

      And while in the early days of the Internet one had many choices of tools to use to search for data, today the name “Google” is synonymous with “search engine”, and is even used as a verb: “Go Google it.”

      Over 90% of all Internet searches are controlled by Google today.

      If Google was simply a software program that searched through all the massive amounts of data in blazing fast speed to produce the results that YOU wanted, this would not be such a big issue. It would just mean they are able to deliver results faster and more comprehensively than other search engines, leading more people to prefer using them over other search engines.

      And that’s probably the way it was in the beginning.

      But today, Google has decided to be the Police of the Internet, and they have decided that they know better what data you should be viewing than you do.

      And they have apparently teamed together with another source of online data, Wikipedia, which poses as a neutral source for information, but is anything but “neutral.”

      Together, these two Internet giants are doing everything they can to serve big corporate interests, particularly when it comes to alternative health.

      Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com, one of the longest running websites on the Internet publishing life-saving information on natural treatments, and exposing corruption in the medical industry, just recently lost 99% of his search engine traffic because Google and Wikipedia apparently do not believe the public has a right to use their search tools to find the kind of information he publishes.

            Medical Apartheid: How State Medical Licensing Boards are Silencing Good Doctors Using Effective, Non-Toxic Therapies

            The hall was packed with several thousand clinicians, physicians, medical professors, scientific researchers and doctors of non-conventional medical disciplines who were interested in the latest anti-aging research. Marty and I presented a paper based upon a year-long clinical study we had conducted.

            Following the presentation, a professor at a California medical school asked me to meet privately with some physicians in a separate conference room.

            I was only anticipating a handful of doctors; therefore I was taken aback to see several hundred MDs and PhDs crammed into the space. The physicians and professors were likely board certified; what they held in common was their inclusion of non-toxic, non-drug therapies in their protocols to treat patients.

            The professor who invited me had published dozens of papers in peer-reviewed journals, but she was unable to get her own clinical research using alternative medical therapies published. This was despite the fact that there are already tens of thousands of studies in print supporting the scientific basis for what she and thousands of other physicians are doing.

            What I learned from listening to these doctors’ complaints is that they feared speaking out publicly about their personal successes. They worried that they would be attacked and could face interrogation from state medical boards for breaking rank with the status quo.

            One professor from the University of Chicago’s medical school stated that he and his colleagues felt as if they were in held silent in the closet.

            However, what surprised me was their knowledge about the causes of disease and non-toxic therapies that could reverse them.

            For the following hours Marty and I listened to in depth conversations for preventing, treating and reversing diseases their colleagues using orthodox protocols were unable to achieve.

            A California professor made a remark I would never forget. He stated it was almost Orwellian that those of us who are able to use alternative medicine must apologize for the success of our treatments. We are attacked and punished for succeeding while they are rewarded for failing.

              Women Turning to Weight Lifting and Resistance Training to Combat Anxiety Disorders

              Most of us are familiar with the sensations of fear; the heart racing, mouth drying, stomach churning, dizzying reaction, that occurs when we encounter the unexpected. Fear, in and of itself, is a natural physiological response to real or perceived danger and one that has contributed heavily to the continuation of humanity. Knowing when to run from a physical threat and when to fight, allowed our ancestors to survive immediate dangers in their daily lives and continue to perpetuate the species.

              The modern landscape we face daily has changed considerably into what we might consider a more civilized, less threatening environment. So why, despite all this advancement, do more than 40 million of us between the ages of 18 and 51 in this country suffer from an anxiety disorder?

              It can all be so emotionally and physically exhausting.

              So how many of us have taken up running and resistance training to quell our anxiety?

              A study done across 8 weeks and involving 42 participants contrasted state anxiety responses, with the results showing a reduction in anxiety symptoms after 50 minutes of either aerobic or resistance training.

              An added benefit to all this running and lifting comes in the form of exercise-induced endorphins, the body’s natural opioids, which have, until recently, been given all the credit for the infamous “runner’s high,” but an emerging field of research is centering on the endocannabinoid system.

                SWI, the Swiss Information channel, reported that there is scientific evidence that music helps nurture brain development in premature infants.

                Swiss neuroscientists reported documenting positive effects of specially composed and performed music on developing neural networks of premature babies. The musical selection provided a soothing background of bells, harp, and Indian punji (charming snake flute). Infants in the music exposure group listened to music five times per week.

                Medical imaging reveals that the neural network of premature babies who have listened to specially composed music strengthens the development of their brain.

                  Judge Orders British Man Opposing 5G Released from Jail - Attempts to Silence Him Failed

                  Mark Steele, from England, has been making headlines for telling the truth about the dangers of 5-G. He has been trying to educate the Gateshead community and its Council about the serious risks of 5-G technology.

                  The Gateshead Council approved the installation of new LED street lights, which contain 5-G equipment. This allows 5-G equipment to be hidden in what people would assume to be harmless city lighting – but these new lights are anything but harmless.

                  Mark Steele began to speak out about the risks of this 5-G equipment in the Gateshead community where he lives. The Council objected to his vocal presence and sought to silence him by bringing charges against him and having him arrested.

                  Mark Steele told me what happened:

                  “They sought a full gagging order in the Civil Courts to stop any output about 5G from me. Their claim was I was frightening vulnerable people in the area. This was the civil case, which failed.

                  The Judge demanded that the 5G risk be debated.

                  The Council is still trying to silence me about 5G. However, the problem they have is the Court has sanctioned me to carry on the campaign. The recorder Nolan stated the ‘public have a right to know’ ‘this is democracy in action.’”

                  The 5G system will be a total surveillance system, which will watch everything we do on the streets and in our homes. Nothing will be private – someone will always be watching.

                  And for people who don’t want to become living components of the 5-G network, that same system can potentially be used to punish objectors and resisters by inflicting pain and illness, and if necessary, by terminating their lives.

                    Proteolytic Enzymes: Effective for Inflammation

                    Proteolytic enzymes are essentially the regulators and the modulators of the inflammatory response.

                    Enzymes are the catalyst for virtually every chemical reaction in the body.

                    Some experts believe that the body contains upward of 50,000 different enzymes, with more than 3,000 having currently been identified.

                    These enzymes have been compared to specialized keys with each enzyme key fitting a corresponding lock. (The locks being biochemical reactions.)

                    Proteolytic enzymes are a specific group of enzymes whose catalytic function is to sever the bonds between peptides and eventually break them down into amino acids, which are the building blocks of virtually all the cells and tissue that make up the body.

                    According to Nutrition Review, Italian researchers have shown that proteolytic enzymes have the ability to reduce inflammation equal or superior to that of the four steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: Phenylbutazone, Hydrocortisone, Indomethacin, and Acetylsalicylic Acid.

                        Tennessee CPS Attorney Connie Reguli Arrested for Defending A Mother's Constitutional Rights to Due Process

                        Attorney Connie Reguli turned herself into authorities in Brentwood, Tennessee today (July 17, 2019) after learning that there was a warrant out for her arrest. She was released the same day without bail, on her own recognizance.

                        Attorney Connie Reguli is well-known to the readers of Health Impact News and our MedicalKidnap.com website. She is the head of the LawCare Family Law Center in Tennessee, and also the founder of the Family Forward Project, which advocates for the rights of parents and children nationwide on matters related to abuses in Child Protective Services and Foster Care.

                        She is a frequent speaker nationally, and educates legislators on matters related to family law and child welfare. She has been practicing law defending the Constitutional rights of parents for over 25 years.

                        Yesterday she received a phone call informing her that there was a warrant out for her arrest, encouraging her to turn herself in rather than having police come in to storm her office or home to arrest her.

                        Attorney Reguli states that she has:

                        “never broken the law and never been arrested for nothing. I am 67 years old, I’ve never had a DUI… never had a single criminal charge.

                        And here we are because I tried to get a parent due process, which means notice and opportunity to be heard.

                        I am now going to be criminally charged for that.”

                        At a recent legislative session in Tennessee before a committee that provides oversight for Tennessee’s Department of Children Services (DCS) Attorney Reguli says:

                        “I told them that this system is so broken, and that parents’ rights are being violated, that nobody will stand up for them. There’s no oversight, there’s nobody looking over their shoulder.

                        I’ve been an attorney for 25 years. I know the law. I know what Constitutional rights are for parents, and I have been a thorn in their side.”

                          Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and World Health Organization Work Together to Conceal Vaccine Death Statistics in Poor Countries

                          The promotion for the utilization of vaccines and the inadequate surveillance systems in poor, Third World countries is largely controlled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation through the mantle of the World Health Organization (WHO) which administers public health programs in poor and middle income countries. Vaccine safety is the domain of the WHO Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS), established in 1999.

                          The WHO-GACVS developed a two-tiered classification system for assessing and reporting adverse events following immunization (AEFI). The AEFI classification system used in Third World countries disqualifies Deaths following vaccination, as having any causal association with vaccines. The dubious rationale given by the WHO: if there was no statistically significant increase in deaths recorded during Phase 3 vaccine trials, death is not associated with vaccination. Those phase 3 trials are too small and too short to detect rare lethal adverse effects.

                          After a vaccine is licensed, all deaths and serious adverse reactions that had not been detected in Phase 3 trials are labelled as ‘coincidental deaths /events’ or ‘unclassifiable’. The association of death with vaccination is discounted.

                          An Exploratory Analysis (2018) by Dr. Jacob Puliyel, head of pediatrics at St. Stephens Hospital Delhi, India, and member of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) of the Government of India, documented that following the shift from the DPT – diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus – vaccine in 2011, to the pentavalent vaccine, the number of deaths rose precipitously.

                          Dr. Puliyel calculated that data from states with good reporting of adverse events, suggest that there are likely to be 7,020–8,190 additional deaths each year in India, because of the shift from DPT to Pentavalent vaccine.

                          The shocking conclusion one cannot help but draw is that the WHO classification system for adverse events following vaccination was crafted for use in devalued populations in the Third Word, where its use is imposed. This harks back to the days of institutionalized Apartheid.

                          Understandably, Dr. Puliyel concluded that: “deaths and other serious adverse events following vaccination in the third world, that use WHO-AEFI classification are not recorded in any database for pharmacovigilance. It is as if the deaths of children in low (and middle) income countries are of no consequence.”

                            The method of diagnosing rickets in infants has been proven to be incorrect, yet it is still considered the standard practice used by child abuse pediatricians to diagnose abuse in infants and children with blatant disregard for laboratory testing showing a vitamin D deficiency or other metabolic bone disease.

                            The diagnosis of rickets in infants is left solely on a radiologist, despite blood tests showing deficiency, insufficiency, and efficient vitamin D levels.

                            The American Academy of Pediatrics: Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect (AAPCCAN) has issued guidelines for the evaluation of children with multiple unexplained fractures, concluding they are almost always due to abuse.

                            However, common sense questions still need answering:

                            Why would abusive parents repeatedly seek medical care for the infant they abused?
                            Why would chest trauma severe enough to fracture ribs not also results in lung damage?
                            Why wouldn’t blunt chest trauma cause some inwardly angulated rib fractures instead of all perfectly aligned fracture ends?
                            Wouldn’t parents who beat their infant severely enough to cause multiple fractures show evidence of psychopathology?
                            Do infants who are beaten severely enough to cause multiple fractures show fear in the presence of the abuser?
                            How often do the eyewitnesses to parental/infant interactions report the parents were concerned and loving parents?

                              In an unprecedented move, pathologist/clinical microbiologist, Dr. Sin Hang Lee has decided to invite the international community of scientists and medical professionals to peer-review and/or discuss his latest research “Toll-like receptor 9 agonist in HPV vaccine Gardasil 9” in an open public forum.

                              According to Dr. Lee, during 2011/12, when he tried to publish papers describing HPV DNA fragments he had discovered in Gardasil 4, his first paper was rejected by three medical journal editors despite the fact that the manufacturer had assured health authorities worldwide no such fragments were in the final product.

                              The first of his papers regarding this subject was favorably peer-reviewed by three scientists who recommended publication. However, upon subsequent review by a journal editor publication was inexplicably denied.

                              Both papers were subsequently published in non-medical journals which deal with ‘pure science’ thereby limiting access to most medical professionals.

                              Dr. Lee also states that after submission of his latest research to “Vaccines” the editor-in-chief sent his paper out requesting a peer review. However, the editor’s subordinates refused to process the manuscript even though the journal claims to be “an international, peer-reviewed open access journal focused on laboratory and clinical vaccine research, utilization and immunization.”

                              Dr. Lee believes this unusual response illustrates a top-level concerted effort by vaccine stakeholders to suppress any information which could potentially impact the published safety profile of HPV vaccines.

                                Idaho Residents Show Support for Homeschooled Teen Medically Kidnapped - Mom Continues Fight in Court

                                For the last 7 months, 16-year-old Brandon McCreery has been separated from the only family he has ever known. After being medically kidnapped by St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital in Boise, over false allegations of medical abuse by his mother, Kristine, supposedly refusing to feed him, Brandon has spent the majority of 2019 in foster care.

                                Desperate to be reunited with her son, and prove the allegations false, Kristine McCreery has sought answers and help from anyone she could find. After the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare and the 3rd District Guardian Ad Litem program refused to listen, and several different attorneys failed to speak for her, Kristine became frustrated and angry with the system.

                                Unable to get anywhere with anyone associated with her son’s case, she has turned her anger into a relentless passion and renewed her fight for her son. Since the State wouldn’t actually help her, Kristine decided to help herself and turned to her new neighbors in Idaho for their help too.

                                Their story went public on Wednesday, July 10th, 2019.

                                To Kristine and her family’s surprise, this young mother’s cry for help was met with a monumental outpouring of support from Idaho residents.

                                Kristine appears in court again Tuesday, July 16th for a review hearing on the CPS case. The court is set to decide the permanency plan for Brandon, which appears to be leaning towards not returning him to his mother.

                                But Kristine isn’t giving up. She plans to represent herself in court and demand her evidence be heard by the judge.

                                She says,

                                “I am hopeful that I will at least have a chance to be heard. I pray that Judge Tucker will see the truth in my words and Brandon’s medical records, and finally send my son home to us.”

                                Court support and another rally have been planned for Tuesday to show community outrage over this situation.

Pfizer, which posted total revenues of $53.7 billion in 2018, announced Dr. Gottlieb’s election to the board on June 27, 2019.

                                  Dr. Gottlieb, who led the FDA from May 11, 2017 to Apr. 5, 2019, has also been appointed to the Regulatory and Compliance Committee and the Science and Technology Committee of Pfizer’s board.

                                  As FDA Commissioner, Dr. Gottlieb often expressed strong opinions about the safety and mandatory use of vaccines. He has said he does not believe there is a need for further scientific research into reported vaccine side effects, such as the development of regressive autism in previously healthy children after vaccination.

                                  He was also outspoken this year about his belief that children attending school with vaccine exemptions are to blame for measles outbreaks and the federal government should intervene if states do not restrict or eliminate vaccine exemptions.

                                    California Mom Wins Second Big Settlement Against CPS for Seizing, Vaccinating Son Without Warrant

                                    Rachel Bruno, the mother at the center of a civil rights battle in Orange County, California, has been awarded another big settlement against social services and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) after they took her 20-month-old son and ran unauthorized medical tests on him and injected him with a dozen vaccinations at the same time.

                                    Bruno was just given a half-million-dollar settlement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for their role in violating her Fourth Amendment rights of due process by carrying out an unwarranted seizure of her 20-month-old son, David.

                                    David had been vaccinated according to his pediatrician’s recommendations at a slower pace because of a troubling reaction to Prevnar. At the physician’s direction, his vaccination schedule had been altered to slow it down to avoid more reactions. Orange County Social Services vaccinated him with seven shots containing twelve viruses at once, disregarding his medical history and without parental consent.

                                    “By the grace of God, David is okay,” Bruno told PJ Media. But the psychological damage he suffered from the unlawful separation and time in a foster group home lingered. “It took a while for him to stop rejecting me,” said Bruno. “He believed I had left him.” Bruno is now reunited with her family.

                                      Families Sue New York State to Stop the Repeal of the Religious Exemption to Vaccines

                                      Attorneys Sussman and Kennedy filed a lawsuit in New York State (NYS) Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the NYS legislature’s June 13, 2019 repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination, Public Health Law Section 2164(9). The plaintiffs, 55 NYS families who held lawful religious exemptions, request that the court enjoin the enactment of the repeal temporarily, preliminarily and permanently.

                                      The plaintiffs are of diverse religious faiths, including Christianity, Judaism and Islam. As a result of the repeal, these families can no longer educate their children in any schools or camps in New York without violating their religious faith. The parents who bring the suit seek to represent thousands of other families likewise affected by the repeal.

                                      Kennedy, Chief Legal Counsel for Children’s Health Defense, stated,

                                      “Religious rights are fundamental. It is unconstitutional for the state to deprive people of such important rights when religious animus has played a key role. To enact such harsh legislation without any legislative fact-finding, and with the legislators’ open display of prejudice towards religious beliefs different than their own, is simply un-American; it is essential that we fight this.”

                                        In 2002, I was a young, ambitious 24-year-old finishing graduate school as a credentialed teacher, marriage and family therapist, and behavior analyst.

                                        Like all good moms, I took my healthy, talking, responsive, playful son Dominic into the doctors for his routine vaccine shots at 15 months old.

                                        That night I watched in heart-wrenching fear as my son developed a 105 fever, uncontrollable screaming, dizziness, diarrhea, and seizures. The following days as Dominic became lethargic, unable to eat, ridden with a rash, and struggled with his breathing, my panic grew uncontrollable.

                                        I took Dominic back to the doctors demanding to know what the vaccines had done to him, but more importantly, how we could help him.

                                        They said there was no correlation between the vaccines he received that day and his newly developed symptoms.

                                        I was told I was paranoid, and we were referred to psychiatry.

                                            With the prevalence of conditions associated with dysfunctional energy metabolism, the use of the ketogenic diet and ketone bodies as an efficient energy source has shown a remarkable therapeutic potential for a wide range of disorders, from cognitive health and neurological diseases to cancer and autoimmune issues, all of which have inflammation and/or a form of metabolic dysregulation in common.

                                            In recent years, a significant amount of research done using the high-fat low-carb diet (HFLC) has centered around the neurological and brain-stabilizing benefits of using ketone bodies, rather than glucose, as fuel for the brain. The increasingly affirming results are leading researchers to wonder if burning ketones might lead to, not only a lighter population through the resulting weight loss, but also a happier and more productive one as well.

                                                  The Reason Big Pharma and Big Food Want You to Think Eggs are Bad - And Why They Are Not

                                                  Ever since the cholesterol theory of heart disease was created during the 1970s and 1980s, eggs have been vilified as a potential threat for not only heart disease, but more recently even diabetes.

                                                  Official institutional warnings of egg consumption continue, even as the cholesterol theory of heart disease is crumbling with the emerging unbiased science proving otherwise.

                                                  The mounting evidence that cholesterol is vital for health and that people with low cholesterol have more health issues and shorter lives than those with high cholesterol is largely ignored when it comes to corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media coverage.

                                                  Diabetes type 2 has become epidemic in cultures that have embraced western processed food diets. There have been some epidemiological surveys that have managed to associate egg consumption with an increased risk of diabetes.

                                                  Those seem to be publicized more than studies that have the different conclusions. Finland has recently shown other conclusions with both a large, unbiased epidemiological study and a follow-up study that analyzed metabolic features among egg eaters.

                                                  Both concluded that those who enjoy eggs in their diet have less risk of diabetes.

                                                    The GE salmon will have to follow the labeling guidelines spelled out in the GMO labeling law passed by Congress in 2016—meaning that the only indication consumers will have that the salmon is genetically engineered may be a scannable QR code.

                                                    As most consumers don’t use these codes, many may have no clue that they’re buying GE salmon.

                                                    We must support legislation that calls for stronger labeling requirements for GE salmon.

                                                        Questions and suspicions have been raised in recent years about apparent collusion by the CDC and the Coca-Cola corporation, which would allow the marketing of their soft drinks while suppressing information linking those soft drinks to health problems such as diabetes and obesity. These questions and suspicions were pursued by a study published in the Milbank Quarterly January 2019.

                                                        Its title is Public Meets Private: Conversations Between Coca-Cola and the CDC. Public health agency collusion that potentially benefits a producer of harmful foods or beverages is no small issue.

                                                        The Milbank Quarterly researchers considered this study relevant due to recently reported episodes of top CDC officials entertaining relationships with Coca- Cola executives. The concern is that makers of unhealthy food products are having inappropriate influences on the CDC.

                                                        For example, one of the reported episodes that motivated this study was:

                                                        “In 2016, Barbara Bowman, director of the CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, resigned after emails between her and a former Coca-Cola executive were disclosed.

                                                        [The emails] showed that Bowman had advised the former Coca-Cola and industry association executive on how to influence the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO) to stop promoting taxes on sugar.”

Some inside sources say there is not that much difference with this year’s Canada Health food guidelines than previous years, except that overall it leans more toward a plant-based diet. Its final draft hasn’t been published yet.

                                                              A group of physicians and nutritionists known as the Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition have opposed the Canadian government dietary advice and published their own opinions on the matter in the Calgary Herald citing the nutritional validity of healthy fats which can include meats and dairy, as they take a “whole foods” approach to eating rather than processed foods, promoting more of a high-fat and low-carb dietary approach.

                                                              They represent a growing group of doctors and nutritionists who are more concerned about their patients’ health than they are about being politically correct about diet and nutrition:

                                                              “We have read the opinion article titled “Health Canada’s new Food Guide is on the right track” with interest.

                                                              This usually involves lower levels of carbohydrates and higher levels of natural fats than is currently recommended, a therapeutic nutritional strategy well supported in the literature.”

                                                                Bellah developed B-cell lymphoma and has been hospitalized and treated with chemotherapy and is currently in remission, according to Pedram Esfandiary, one of the family’s attorneys.

The farm raises its animals and other pure foods the way nature intended and we are proud to be entirely chemical, cruelty and GMO-free.

All of the farm’s food is traceable, pure and grown on nutrient dense soil, under traditional time-honored methods.

                                                                    The farm is now under attack by the USDA who is suing the farm to comply with USDA laws, concerning the way the farm animals are processed and how our food is labeled.

                                                                      Of the pesticides banned in at least two of these nations, many have been implicated in acute pesticide poisonings in the USA and some are further restricted by individual states.

                                                                      The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has all but abandoned its use of non-voluntary cancellations in recent years, making pesticide cancellation in the USA largely an exercise that requires consent by the regulated industry.

                                                                        Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, and has been linked to cancer. Juries in recent court cases have awarded billions of dollars in damages to cancer victims who were exposed to glyphosate.

                                                                        This most recent report published by Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., senior science advisor, and Alexis Temkin, Ph.D., Toxicologist, at EWG, tested 21 oat-based cereal and snack products, and found all of them had high levels of the toxic glyphosate.

                                                                        EWG is asking the public to sign a petition to have the major food companies remove glyphosate from their products.

                                                                        While this is a noble venture, it is impossible for any company producing products from American grains to remove glyphosate from their products.

                                                                        Companies producing these products do not have a choice to remove glyphosate from their products. It is impossible. Petitioning them to do so will not accomplish anything, because they are powerless to change this.

The study was conducted by the Agri-Food Laboratories, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

                                                                          Their analysis found that almost 99% of the honey samples analyzed were contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp that has been linked to cancer.

While world bodies like the World Health Organization say that glyphosate is a “probable carcinogen,” the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains that glyphosate is safe.

                                                                            Let’s not forget, though, that cronyism mars the EPA decision: unsealed court documents showed that a top EPA official (Jess Rowland) promised Monsanto he would quash efforts by the Department of Health to conduct its own review of glyphosate.

                                                                            So much for the federal government protecting the interests of people rather than special interests.

                                                                            There are now 13,400 cases pending that allege Roundup causes cancer.

                                                                              After listening to 17 days of trial testimony, jurors said Monsanto must pay $1 billion to Alberta Pilliod, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma brain cancer in 2015, and another $1 billion to her husband Alva Pilliod, who was diagnosed in 2011 with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that spread from his bones to his pelvis and spine.

                                                                              The couple, who are both in their 70s, started using Roundup in the 1970s and continued using the herbicide until only a few years ago. The jury also awarded the couple a total of $55 million in damages for past and future medical bills and other losses.

                                                                              In ordering punitive damages, the jury had to find that Monsanto “engaged in conduct with malice, oppression or fraud committed by one or more officers, directors or managing agents of Monsanto” who were acting on behalf of the company.

                                                                              Pilliod v. Monsanto is the third Roundup cancer case to go to trial. And it is the third to conclude that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based herbicides can cause cancer and that Monsanto has long known about – and covered up – the risks.

                                                                              • EPA-626x363

                                                                                Relying heavily on confidential industry research, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to re-approve glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.

                                                                                EPA’s conclusion that glyphosate poses no risks to humans contradicts a 2015 World Health Organization analysis of the leading independent research that determined glyphosate is a probable carcinogen.

                                                                                “American consumers have no reason to trust the EPA’s deeply flawed assessment of glyphosate’s safety,” said Nathan Donley, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity.

                                                                                “As with past EPA studies, the agency has relied heavily on confidential industry research that can’t be reviewed by independent scientists. This is an industry-friendly conclusion that’s simply not based on the best available science.”

                                                                                In addition to the WHO’s conclusion, other U.S. federal agencies have acknowledged evidence of glyphosate’s link to cancer. This includes the EPA’s Office of Research and Development and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

                                                                                Within the past nine months, two juries have ordered Monsanto/Bayer to pay multimillion-dollar awards to glyphosate users suffering from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which independent research has linked to glyphosate. A third trial is currently underway, and lawsuits involving roughly 13,000 people have been filed against the company for failing to warn consumers of the pesticide’s cancer risks.

                                                                                  In what Bloomberg called “a stunning development for the German drugs and chemicals company”, about 55 percent of shareholders voted against absolving Baumann and other managers of responsibility for their actions in the takeover last year.

                                                                                  The vote threw Baumann’s future into question and prompted an immediate supervisory board session.

                                                                                  While much of the investor unrest undoubtedly focuses on financial liability, strong concerns are being raised about Bayer’s ethics.

                                                                                  At Bayer’s annual general meeting, Christian Russau from the umbrella organization, the Critical Shareholders, made a speech in which he launched a scathing attack on the company for its “double standards”.

                                                                                  According to Russau, Bayer sells pesticides in Brazil that are banned in the EU.

                                                                                  Russau said he feared that companies such as Bayer will continue to participate, perhaps more than ever, in the sale and distribution of highly toxic agrochemicals in Brazil.

                                                                                  As a survival tactic in the face of Monsanto’s multi-billion dollar acquisition, Bayer will go for growth at any price. Any poison which can be sold will be sold.

The increasingly affirming results are leading researchers to wonder if burning ketones might lead to, not only a lighter population through the resulting weight loss, but also a happier and more productive one as well.

(See: Coconut oil consumption improves fat-free mass, plasma HDL-cholesterol and insulin sensitivity in healthy men with normal BMI compared to peanut oil.)

                                                                                      A researcher at The University of Edinburgh Medical School wrote a Letter to the Editor of Clinical Nutrition commenting on this study, criticizing current government nutritional guidelines regarding saturated dietary fat restrictions.

                                                                                      “The cross-over study by Korrapati et al. detailed the potential cardioprotective effect of coconut oil, and I would like to thank the authors for their insight. Whilst the sample size was small, it was well-designed to investigate its primary end-points.

                                                                                      This study is particularly topical as, despite removal of the maximum dietary fat intake restriction from guidelines, a major resistance against saturated fats remains.”

                                                                                      Setting aside the issue of whether or not saturated fats should be restricted at all, given the abundance of contrary evidence in the medical literature, the Edinburgh Medical School researcher reported that such guidelines do not distinguish between different types of saturated fats. Saturated fats can be found in animal products, such as butter, as well as plant sources, such as coconuts and date palms.

                                                                                      “The rise in high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) with coconut oil consumption is certainly a compelling finding. Results from a recent and larger-scale randomised trial by Khaw et al. corroborate this… Evidence suggests that the saturated versus unsaturated distinction of fats is likely an oversimplification.

                                                                                      Korrapati et al. should, therefore, be commended on their focus on the biological properties of coconut oil, particularly the medium chain triglyceride (MCT) dominated fatty acid profile, which may confer atheroprotective effects.”

                                                                                        As a recent NY Times Health Section article reported, there is allegedly a hospital cover-up of an emerging candida fungus, Candida or C. auris.

                                                                                        It is the latest antimicrobial drug-resistant “super-bug” to emerge in hospitals and nursing homes. This time it’s not about bacteria, it’s a virulent form of candida.

                                                                                        And while the corporate media, sponsored in a large degree by Big Pharma, will almost never report on natural solutions, there is hope for fighting fungal infections like Candida where drugs have failed.

                                                                                        One of the most beneficial natural products that fights and kills strains of Candida, according to peer-reviewed research over the past several years, is coconut oil.

                                                                                          Recent studies confirm that coconut oil protects the heart, and also potentially protects other vital organs including the liver and kidneys of those suffering from diabetes.

                                                                                          This research contradicts the propaganda against coconut oil by American organizations such as the American Heart Association which still promote the now failed theory of heart disease that blames saturated fats and cholesterol as causative factors in heart disease.

                                                                                            The skin healing properties of coconut oil, especially virgin coconut oil, applied topically to the skin have been known for a long time.

                                                                                            Even though coconut oil is sold as a dietary oil, people applying it topically are seeing tremendous results for their skin conditions such as acne, eczema, keratosis polaris, psoriasis, rosacea, and fungal infections.

                                                                                            We have suspected for years that the reason people in tropical climates who eat their traditional diets which are high in the saturated fats of coconut oil had such beautiful skin, even though they are exposed to the sun to a greater degree than westerners, is because of the high amounts of coconut oil in their diet, which does not oxidize and cause free radical damage as polyunsaturated fats do.

                                                                                            Skin cancer, for example, is almost unheard of in tropical climates like the Philippines, but common in western nations, even in colder climates with far less exposure to the sun.

                                                                                            Researchers in Japan apparently wanted to test this theory of dietary coconut oil reducing allergic skin inflammation in the laboratory:

                                                                                            “Coconut oil is used as a dietary oil worldwide, and its healthy effects are recognized by the fact that coconut oil is easy to digest, helps in weight management, increases healthy cholesterol and provides instant energy.

                                                                                            Although topical application of coconut oil is known to reduce skin infection and inflammation, whether dietary coconut oil has any role in decreasing skin inflammation is unknown.

                                                                                            In this study, we showed the impact of dietary coconut oil in allergic skin inflammation by using a mouse model of contact hypersensitivity (CHS).”

Many testimonials to the powerful healing properties of virgin coconut oil for skin conditions have been published here at CoconutOil.com over the years. People have testified to virgin coconut oil healing fungal skin infections, acne, eczema, keratosis polaris, psoriasis, rosacea, and more.

                                                                                                        A doctor in the UK is being investigated by the General Medical Council (GMC) because a complaint was made against him for praying with his patients.

                                                                                                        Dr. Richard Scott is a General Practitioner at Bethesda Medical Centre in Margate, Kent.

                                                                                                        Dr. Scott states that he only prays with about one out of every 40 patients, and that he always asks for their permission first. Of those he asks, about 90% accept, and the ones who do not, he respects their right to refuse.

                                                                                                        The complaint to the General Medical Council was allegedly not made by any of his patients, but by an “acquaintance” of one of his patients, who then worked with The National Secular Society (NSS) to lodge the complaint.

                                                                                                        The NSS allegedly wrote that a “highly vulnerable patient” was uneasy with the use of prayer during a consultation. NSS chief executive Stephen Evans reportedly confirmed that the complaint came from someone known to the patient rather than the patient themselves.

                                                                                                        • Surgeon With Flag On Background Series - Canada

                                                                                                          Here’s the story: The Canadian Charter (Constitution) guarantees “freedom of conscience and religion” — a stronger and more explicit protection of religious liberty than our First Amendment.

                                                                                                          After the Supreme Court created a right to euthanasia, Ontario passed a law requiring doctors to kill legally eligible patients who want to die or provide an “effective referral” if they have moral objections — i.e., procure a doctor known by the dissenter to be willing to euthanize patients.

                                                                                                          Catholic and other religious doctors sued to enforce their Charter liberties. Referring equals complicity, the doctors argued, and thus the law forces them to violate their religious beliefs and consciences.

                                                                                                          In one of the world’s most important “medical conscience” rulings, a trial judge admitted the doctors’ Charter rights were indeed infringed. But he ruled that a right (nowhere mentioned in the Charter) to “equal and equitable access” to legal and government-funded medical interventions trumped doctors’ freedom of religion.

                                                                                                          Now a Court of Appeals has affirmed, ruling that doctors must not only euthanize or refer, but also abort or refer, and provide any other controversial legal service that a patient might want or refer — their religious freedoms or moral consciences be damned.

                                                                                                          • Canadian Doctor Standing With Stethoscope On Canada Flag Backgro

                                                                                                            Canadian doctors committed thousands of homicides in 2018. According to an interim report published by the government, in the first ten months of last year, doctors lethally injected 2,613 patients (with one assisted suicide) — and that doesn’t include the homicides committed by doctors in Quebec, Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut.

                                                                                                            The report says that about 1.12 percent of all Canadian deaths were caused by euthanasia, a number that is increasing every year.

                                                                                                            No wonder. Efforts are increasing to normalize lethal injection as a way of death — and soon we are likely to see the killable caste expanded in Canada to include children, people whose deaths are not “foreseeable,” those with dementia who asked to be killed in an advance directive, and perhaps, the mentally ill (as happens regularly in the Netherlands and Belgium).

                                                                                                            If 1.12 percent of our deaths in the U.S. were doctor-homicides, it would amount to nearly 30,000.

                                                                                                            These statistics are stark, but they don’t tell the whole story. Because these radical policies have only been in effect for a relatively short time, we don’t yet know the moral costs of allowing doctors to kill sick patients or assist their suicides.

                                                                                                            • in the beginning granville sewell fb

                                                                                                              It is really not necessary to be a biochemist or a paleontologist to understand the main issue in the debate between Darwinism and intelligent design. That is because it is a very simple principle, as I keep emphasizing: natural (unintelligent) causes do not create order (or information). They destroy it.

                                                                                                              While every other natural process tends to turn order into disorder, Darwinists have always believed that natural selection is the one unintelligent process in the universe that can create spectacular order out of disorder.

                                                                                                              So I feel vindicated by Michael Behe’s new book, Darwin Devolves, which disputes this belief, and argues that despite all the claims about the creative powers of natural selection, it has never actually been observed to produce anything new and complex, only “devolution.”

                                                                                                                Southern Baptists are the largest Protestant Christian denomination in the U.S., numbering more than 47,000 churches with over 15 million church members. Only the Catholic Church has more members in the U.S.

                                                                                                                As with the Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is an integral part of the American foster care and adoption system.

                                                                                                                Due to its size, one could say the American foster care system would be severely crippled without the involvement of the SBC, which partners with many local organizations across the U.S. to provide foster care and adoption services, primarily through its North American Mission Board, and its “Send Relief” program.

                                                                                                                We have documented very clearly here at Health Impact News that the foster care system in the U.S. is a billion dollar child trafficking system, and over 85% of child sex trafficking victims are under the control of Child “Protective” Services who take children out of their homes and place them into foster care or with adoptive parents.

                                                                                                                When Lisa Wheeler wrote an article for the National Review last year titled “Pro-Life Should Include Foster Care, Too,” criticizing American churches for not participating more in state-sponsored foster care programs, we wrote our rebuttal asking why the church would participate in such an evil program?

                                                                                                                Sadly, as we have previously reported about the Catholic Church and Independent Baptist Churches, child sex abuse by pastors and youth leaders is widespread among Southern Baptists also.

                                                                                                                A six month investigation by the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News has found widespread child sex abuse by over 220 Southern Baptist leaders against more than 700 victims since 1998.

                                                                                                                And these are just the cases that have reached the courts and are a matter of public record. How many others have been covered up and never been reported?

Behe the “Father of Intelligent Design,” Behe’s arguments have been called, “close to heretical” by the New York Times Book Review, and Richard Dawkins has publicly taken him to task for his “maverick” views.

                                                                                                                  Wherever he goes, Behe makes waves, but has remained singularly focused on doing rigorous scientific analysis that points to controversial but incredible results that other scientists won’t touch.

                                                                                                                  Twenty years after publishing his seminal work, Darwin’s Black Box (over 250,000 copies sold), Behe shows that new scientific discoveries point to a stunning fact: Darwin’s mechanism works by a process of devolution, not evolution.

                                                                                                                  On the surface, evolution can help make something look and act different, but it doesn’t have the ability to build or create anything at the genetic level.

                                                                                                                  Critically analyzing the latest research, Behe gives a sweeping tour of how modern theories of evolution fall short and how the devolving nature of Darwin’s mechanism limits them even further.

                                                                                                                  If we are to get a satisfactory answer to how the most complex, stunning life-forms arose, it’s time to acknowledge the conclusion that only an intelligent mind could have designed life.

How can Christmas possibly be “merry” when that which means the most – the children, or in some cases the elderly parents – are not there? The laughter and wonder of Christmas is missing, and their hearts have been shattered.

                                                                                                                    My heart has been very heavy this Christmas as I carry so many hurting families in my heart. It is hard to see hope and remember joy when there is so much evil in the world, but as I woke up this morning, I was reminded that Hope didn’t come two thousand years ago as a blazing warrior on a white horse bringing victory. He came as a tiny baby. Yet He represented in human form all the love and promises and hope of God.

                                                                                                                    I am reminded that, even in the midst of deep sorrow and desperation, the true message of Christmas is that “Hope” has been born. This season is a timeless marker that, no matter how dark and hopeless it may seem, there is still a light that shines in the darkness.

                                                                                                                      Churches, both Catholic and non-Catholic Christian churches, are a huge part of the child sex trafficking problem in the U.S.

                                                                                                                      These religious institutions receive significant government funding for foster care and adoption services, which we have reported for years now is a Child Trafficking multi-billion dollar business employing hundreds of thousands of people.

                                                                                                                      Church-sponsored organizations, most also receiving significant government funds, are necessary for the State to continue taking children away from parents and putting them into the lucrative foster care and adoption system.

                                                                                                                      As we have investigated the problem of child sex trafficking, we have discovered that the problem reaches to the most elite members of society, and that they depend upon the public not understanding what is happening, or minimizing it and excusing most reports as “Conspiracy theories.”

                                                                                                                      In response to this problem, we recently covered the meeting earlier this year in Westminster, London by The International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ), as the court convened over a 3-day period to launch their Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse.

                                                                                                                      Therefore, in the third installment of John P. Thomas’ investigative reports into child sex trafficking, we seek to help the public understand the full scope of this horrific problem.

                                                                                                                      This problem will continue to exist until enough people in the public wake up and decide something needs to be done to stop these horrible crimes against our most vulnerable citizens: children.

                                                                                                                      • The International Tribunal for Natural Justice the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse

                                                                                                                        800,000 children a year in the United States go missing, many of them being sexually trafficked through pedophilia networks where the children suffer unimaginable horrors such as Satanic ritual abuse.

                                                                                                                        This number is comprised of documented cases of children gone missing, and does not include children who are born and bred into pedophilia networks and have no birth certificates, or undocumented immigrant children who come across the borders.

                                                                                                                        Worldwide, the number is close to 8 million children missing and being sexually trafficked.

                                                                                                                        Such is the scope of the problem that was reported earlier this year (2018) in Westminster, London by The International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ), as the court convened over a 3-day period to launch their Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse.

                                                                                                                        The Judicial Commission is comprised of world leaders who have been involved in fighting child sex trafficking for years, and includes intelligence officers, politicians, legal scholars, and many others.

                                                                                                                        The International Tribunal was formed because most of the world’s government bodies today have been corrupted and no longer represent the people, but instead private corporate interests, and as such, justice is seldom found in most government judicial courts around the world today to stop such a heinous crime as child sex trafficking.

                                                                                                                          Journalists, particularly those who do investigative reporting, tend to annoy people in powerful positions. Some people might think that Christians are supposed to be soft and acquiescent rather than muckrakers who hold the powerful to account. But what I do as an investigative reporter is consistent with what the Bible teaches.

                                                                                                                          The mission statement of ProPublica, my employer, says we want to use the “moral force of investigative journalism to spur reform.” If you go through my work, you may sense a bit of “moral force.”

                                                                                                                          The Bible teaches that people are made in the image of God and that each human life holds incredible value. So when I learned that medical mistakes are one of the leading causes of death in America, I called attention to the problem.

                                                                                                                          The Apostle Paul points out that God comforts us so that we can be a comfort to others. So since 2012 I’ve moderated the ProPublica Patient Safety Facebook group, so people who have been harmed by medical care have a place to turn.

                                                                                                                          The Bible rebukes deception and unfair practices. I’ve shown how our nation’s health care system is rife with schemes that are unfair to patients.

                                                                                                                          The biblical mandate is to tell the truth. But some conservative Christians don’t seem to understand that. I started out in the Christian media and had run-ins with editors because of my interest in reporting about Christian leaders, even if it made them look bad. Administrators recently censored student journalists at Liberty University, a conservative Christian institution, for, in their view, making the school look bad. But God calls us to publish the truth, not propaganda.

                                                                                                                          The biblical prophets were the moral conscience of God’s people. Today, in a nonreligious sense, journalists are the moral conscience of the wider culture.
