Why Most Doctors are Wrong About Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in nearly every cell of your body and is essential to good health. It plays a role in hormone production, digestion and the manufacture of vitamin D following sun exposure, and helps protect your cell membranes. As noted by Zoe Harcombe, Ph.D., "It is virtually ...

    Why Most Doctors are Wrong About Cholesterol

    Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in nearly every cell of your body and is essential to good health. It plays a role in hormone production, digestion and the manufacture of vitamin D following sun exposure, and helps protect your cell membranes.

    As noted by Zoe Harcombe, Ph.D., “It is virtually impossible to explain how vital cholesterol is to the human body. If you had no cholesterol in your body you would be dead.”

    Cholesterol has long been vilified as a primary cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD), yet numerous studies refute this hypothesis, demonstrating that cholesterol has virtually nothing to do with heart disease — at least not in the way conventional medicine presents it.

    As noted by Harcombe, the notion that there is good and bad cholesterol is also wrong. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) are not actually cholesterol; they’re carriers and transporters of cholesterol, triglycerides (fat), phospholipids and proteins.

    “LDL would more accurately be called the carrier of fresh cholesterol and HDL would more accurately be called the carrier of recycled cholesterol,” she says.

    What’s more, dietary cholesterol has no impact on the cholesterol level in your blood, so how could dietary cholesterol pose a health risk?

      What Do Crowd Control, Burning Skin, and Superbugs Have in Common? 5G

      What do crowd control, burning skin, your street corner, and Superbugs have in common?

      The short answer: 5G networks, which are coming to your town.

      5G technology will make wireless networks capable of more data streaming at faster speeds because it uses a broader frequency spectrum, as explained here. Whereas current 4G networks use up to 6 GHz, 5G will use frequencies between 24 GHz and 100 GHz, known as millimeter-wave frequencies.

      This means that the dozens of small cell towers that will be installed in your neighborhood will be emanating millimeter waves.

      Also, consider this. The Department of Defense has developed a non-lethal crowd control device called the Active Denial System (ADS). The ADS works by firing a high-powered beam of 95 GHz waves at a target—that is, millimeter wavelengths.

      Anyone caught in the beam will feel like their skin is burning. The burning sensation stops once the target leaves the beam.

      So, what we’re talking about with 5G technology is being exposed to the same kind of waves day in and day out, only at a lower power than the ADS.

      Have safety studies confirmed that such exposure is safe? No.

        Treating Lyme Disease Successfully with Ozone Therapy

        I have an interesting clinical case for you today. Another Lyme case. Lyme is the disease Australian authorities do not believe exists, and will persecute doctors for treating it. Meanwhile our CDC says it’s a horrific epidemic, warns against new ticks, and says at least 300,000 Americans are coming down with the disease every year. This is scientific medicine!

        One country doesn’t want to pay for it and denies its existence. The other does recognize its presence. I lived this lunacy. In Alaska, the local medical societies VOTED that chelation for metals was fraudulent and mercury amalgam removal from teeth was fraud. Imagine if their efforts to purge me was successful and just 15 years later they were PROVEN wrong in the medical literature (which was already available at the time, if they were not so dogmatically wedded to Pharma).

        In our country Lyme is a major problem. MAJOR. It is difficult to treat. It is difficult to diagnose. A negative lab test means nothing. Most treatments are antibiotics. These carry a very significant risk of temporarily or permanently messing you up. And, from the cases I’ve seen, most will relapse.

        Lyme disease, a bane of conventional medicine, is now our favorite problem to treat as patients go from despair to hope. I could not bring myself to video this patient last week as she looked beyond depressed and fatigued. When I saw her being treated today, there was a smile on her face from ear to ear and a bright facial glow.

          Study: Maintaining High Blood Levels of Vitamin D Controls Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

          Adding to the importance of maintaining high blood levels of vitamin D, a new meta-analysis of 18 human random control trials for controlling inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was published November of 2018.

          The researchers in China focused on Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), both categorized under the heading of IBD. According to the background data of their report, there are at least 3 million sufferers in Europe and half that many in the USA.

          Evidently, the researchers’ concern was that Asian nations are experiencing a rise with IBD now. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is much more common with some of the same chronic symptoms as IBD, though less serious. Therefore the results of this meta-analysis apply to IBS sufferers as well.

          The fact that IBD tends to be chronic and incurable by mainstream medicine led to their undertaking this review. They wanted to determine if supplementing vitamin D could prevent inflammatory gastrointestinal tract diseases, create remissions, and maintain them.

            Thermography vs. Mammography for Early Breast Cancer Detection: Who Benefits Most?

            There is a turf war between those who favor thermography and those who favor mammography for early breast cancer detection. The mammogram party is supported by federal health agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as well as the mammogram industry.

            For the most part, the under-supported thermography advocates are outgunned and outnumbered by the mammogram crowd, which has declared a soft, at least for now, war on thermography to restrict or deny its independent breast cancer screening use.

            Breast cancer cells take around five to eight years to develop enough for mammogram tumor detection. Just in time for costly, profitable treatments.

            But because of thermography’s extreme sensitivity to infrared emissions from slight temperature variations, its images render the earliest signs of breast cancer and/or a pre-cancerous state of the breast.

              Study: THC from Cannabis Helps Restore Memory Loss due to Aging and Dementia

              A recent 2018 animal study has indicated that cannabis with THC helps restore memory loss due to aging and dementia.

              This is what many medical cannabis users and experts already know. The human cannabis experience has outpaced mainstream science considerably. But it does help create some medical cannabis scientific credibility with mainstream medicine.

              The well known and often vilified cannabis compound known as THC (Δ9 aka delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol) is the compound or cannabinoid that creates the euphoric “high.”

              Biased false claims that THC causes brain damage is the main reason why truly independent research is restricted from national funding in the USA unless it supports government marijuana danger claims.

              This new study, A chronic low dose of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) restores cognitive function in old mice, was conducted in Germany with national funding through the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).

              According to Newsweek magazine online and some other magazines and websites that covered this study, the study authors wrote:

              “Cannabis preparations and THC are used for medicinal purposes. They have an excellent safety record and do not produce adverse side-effects when administered at a low dose to older individuals. Thus, chronic, low-dose treatment with THC or cannabis extracts could be a potential strategy to slow down or even to reverse cognitive decline in the elderly.”

                Quality of Sleep More Important than Number of Hours Spent Sleeping for Immune System and Cellular Repair

                Few are aware of the importance of good sleep, not necessarily measured by hours in bed, but the quality of sleep. This has been indicated by sleep polls over the past few years. The National Sleep Foundation’s 2018 poll or survey was up slightly in hours of sleep, but still low in quality of sleep.

                Sleep quality is important for more-than-quality daytime or waking hours performance. It is a vital part of our immune system and efficient cellular repair that may slow down the body’s aging process.

                It doesn’t matter much if you’re in bed during sleep time for eight hours if your sleep is not deep, or if it’s not cycled through the five stages of sleep with proper duration for each cycle, there is some measure of sleep deprivation.

                  Public Puts Pressure on the FDA to Not Ban Bioidentical Hormones

                  Thanks to your activism, the FDA has agreed to study bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. But the threat to hormones still looms.

                  For months now, we’ve been telling you about the FDA’s attack on estriol, progesterone, and other bioidentical hormones that are made for individual patients at specialized pharmacies.

                  Now, thanks to the activism of ANH members and other stakeholders, the agency has recently announced that they have asked the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) to conduct a study on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

                  This is a qualified victory: it shows that the FDA feels enough pressure from the public that they can’t ban bioidentical hormones outright. But the fight is far from over, and we must remain vigilant to ensure the future of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

                    New Studies on Black Cumin Seeds Reveal Healing Powers for Asthma and Cancer

                    Black cumin seed (Nigella sativa) is an ancient natural healing remedy from the Mideast and India. Its phenomenal healing powers for so many ailments and diseases inspired the phrase “black seed cures everything but death.”

                    This year, 2018, two peer-reviewed published studies on black cumin seed were added to the long list of international studies confirming its safety and efficacy. The diseases tested using Nigella sativa (N. Sativa) are enough to fill a medical manual.

                    The two recent studies focused on asthma and renal (kidney) cancer. Both were concluded with positive results.

                    The fact that both studies were done with the intention of finding plant-based solutions to replace pharmaceutical drugs instead of trying to find active ingredients for pharmaceutical companies to synthesize and sell at high prices is unique.

                    It’s also interesting that this sort of endeavor is going on outside the USA and most Western nations. The fact is that this ancient Mideast remedy has been thoroughly researched over the past few decades with positive results for many ailments and diseases that are common today.

                    The literature is there, the “science is in,” but it’s willfully ignored by mainstream medicine and media on this side of the Pacific. Black cumin seed empowers one to take responsibility for one’s own health.

                          After four long years, Dr. Brian Hooker’s reanalysis of the CDC’s MMR-autism data from the original Destefano et al. 2004 Pediatrics paper has been republished in the Winter 2018 Edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

                          The data, when properly analyzed, using the CDC’s own study protocol, show a strong, statistically significant relationship between the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism, specifically in African American males. In addition, a relationship also exists in the timing of the MMR vaccine and those individuals who were diagnosed with autism without mental retardation.

                          These relationships call into question the conclusion of the original Destefano et al. 2004 paper which dismissed a connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.

                            Massachusetts Seeks to Disbar and Silence Attorney Fighting to Expose Corruption in Senior Medical Kidnappings

                            Attorneys and guardians have plundered the estate of Marvin Siegel, a retired attorney from Boxford, Massachusetts. At the same time they have gone through the courts to isolate him from his children and essentially imprison him in his own home.

                            His youngest daughter Lisa Belanger followed in his footsteps in becoming an attorney, inspired by her father’s principles of fighting for what is right. She says:

                            “He taught me to not be silent when wrongs are being done to others.”

                            She and her sister Devora Kaiser were shocked to see the strong arm of the state in keeping them away from their beloved father when he was captured from his family in 2011.

                            Marvin Siegel’s daughters had no idea how deeply the corruption in the guardianship issue runs, but they have had a front row seat to see the conflicts of interests, sweetheart deals, drugging of senior citizens, and raping of their estates that are standard fare in some probate courts, such as the one their family has had the misfortune of being subjected to.

                            In our last update on their story in July 2018, we reported that attorney Marsha Kazarosian retaliated against Lisa Belanger and her efforts to free her father by filing with the Bar Association to have her disbarred.

                            The latest developments seem to paint a picture of the deck stacked against the attorney who is simply fighting with all she has for the God-given human right to have a relationship with her father, without government interference.

                            Meanwhile, Lisa and her sister were notified on Monday, December 10, that their father has been hospitalized. He has pneumonia, but Lisa Belanger is forbidden to see her father by Marsha Kazarosian and the new court-appointed guardian for Marvin Siegel, Brian Bixby, who was recommended by Kazarosian.

                              Victory for Toronto Nurses: Rationale for Nurses Who Refuse Flu Vaccine to Wear Masks "Insufficient, Inadequate, and Completely Unpersuasive"

                              The Ontario Nurses’ Association has won a major victory over St. Michael’s Hospital and eight other Toronto-area hospitals, as labour arbitrator William Kaplan wrote in a 53-page decision that forcing unvaccinated nurses to wear surgical masks during the flu season is a policy that is “insufficient, inadequate, and completely unpersuasive.”

                              The hospital failed to prove that nurses who didn’t have flu symptoms were a significant source of infection and therefore would be required to wear masks if they weren’t inoculated, Mr. Kaplan said in his decision.

                              Mr. Kaplan also heard an expert, Lisa Brosseau, a professor of environmental and occupational health sciences, testify that surgical masks fit poorly and aren’t an effective form of protection.

                              The arbitrator said it was illogical to force nurses who aren’t immunized to be masked when St. Michael’s isn’t as strict with unvaccinated visitors.

                              “If masking is truly effective as source control, how can it be that they too are not required to mask? The answer to this question reveals that the masking part of the policy is, as one St. Michael’s witness admitted, ‘weak,’ ” Mr. Kaplan wrote.

                                The Arizona woman convicted of scalding a little girl placed in her care by Child Protective Services has been sentenced to 15 years in prison, followed by 15 years probation.

                                Samantha Osteraas could have received up to a 30 year sentence at her hearing on December 3, 2018, but Superior Court Judge James Marner of Pima County felt that Osteraas “deserved some leniency,” according to the Arizona Daily Star.

                                A group of concerned citizens called the AZ DCS Oversight Group says that they tried to submit a Victim Impact Statement to the court, but were refused. The judge’s clerk threatened to throw the group representative out of the courtroom if the document was distributed, but the group had already given it to various media representatives before giving it to the clerk.

                                Osteraas was found guilty in October of reckless child abuse for waiting for several hours before calling 911 after then 5 year old Devani was scalded in the bathtub. Devani suffered 3rd degree burns to more than 70% of her body and had to be placed into a medically induced coma. She lost all 10 of her toes and has undergone 29 surgeries since the crime against her almost 2 years ago. During the trial, Devani, now 7, testified that Osteraas held her down in the bathtub with a pink towel.

                                  U.S. Government Pays Out Millions to Flu Shot Victims Killed or Paralyzed by Influenza Vaccine

                                  Flu season is in full swing, and once again reports are coming in that formerly healthy people are suffering serious harm or even dying from taking the flu shot.

                                  The fact that the annual flu shot is deadly and dangerous is not a fact even in dispute. But these facts are seldom, if ever, communicated to the American public before marketing the flu shot to the entire population, including those most vulnerable such as young babies and sick seniors, as the flu shot is marketed in retail pharmacy stores across the nation as if they are just as safe as buying a candy bar or pack of gum.

                                  As you will see here, the Department of Justice report on compensated cases for vaccine injuries and deaths in the U.S. Vaccine Court, submitted each three months to the federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, shows that millions of dollars are being spent for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot.

                                  As far as I know, Health Impact News is the only news source publishing this government data on compensated cases due to vaccine injuries and deaths.

                                  The December 6, 2018 meeting just concluded, and Government attorney Catharine Reeves reported that there were 144 settlements for vaccine injuries and deaths the past 3 months, and 89 of those cases were listed in her report.

                                  Of those 89 cases compensated, 77 were for injuries and one death caused by the flu shot, making the flu shot the most dangerous vaccine in the United States, by far.

                                    The CDC Claims the Flu Shot Reduces Mortality in the Elderly - But Where’s the Evidence?

                                    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone aged six months and up, including pregnant women, get an annual influenza vaccine. The two fundamental assumptions underlying the CDC’s policy are that vaccination reduces transmission of the virus and reduces the risk of potentially deadly complications. Yet multiple reviews of the scientific literature have concluded that there is no good scientific evidence to support the CDC’s claims.

                                    Notwithstanding the science, to increase demand for the pharmaceutical companies’ influenza vaccine products, the CDC makes use of fear marketing, asserting as fact that tens of thousands of people die each year from the flu, even though the CDC’s numbers are actually estimates that are controversial because they are based on dubious assumptions that appear to result in a great overestimation of the negative impact of influenza on societal health.

                                    The primary justification for the CDC’s flu vaccine policy is the assumption that it significantly reduces the mortality rate among people aged 65 and older, the group at highest risk of potentially deadly complications from the flu. The CDC declares to the public that the vaccine does so as though this was a scientifically proven fact.

                                    Yet, the reality is that the CDC’s bold claim that the vaccine greatly reduces the risk of death among the elderly has been thoroughly discredited by the scientific community.

                                      Child Abuse Pediatrician Testimony Rips a South Carolina Family Apart

                                      One doctor says that the ONLY way a child’s injuries could happen is by “brute force.” Other doctors can look at the same data and say that that the injuries could have been caused by an accident, metabolic disorder, nutritional deficiency, infection, or other non-abusive mechanism.

                                      When these two perspectives collide, then justice demands that we examine other evidence. Is there a history of violence? Is there other evidence of abuse? Has anyone witnessed abuse? What about the perspective of those who know the accused – is abuse consistent with the character of the person who is accused?

                                      All too often, parents lose their children to Child Protective Services, often permanently, and others have gone to prison based on the testimony of one particular kind of doctor – a Child Abuse Pediatrician (CAP) – even though there is no other evidence that the parents have abused their child.

                                      Robbie and Jennifer Ray of South Carolina are facing just such a scenario. Dr. Susan Lamb, CAP at Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, says that the only possible explanation for the couple’s twins’ injuries is child abuse, even though other doctors and their families disagree. Jennifer Ray told Health Impact News:

                                      “If there is no evidence to prove physical abuse, then you need to second guess the diagnosis [made by the child abuse doctor].”

                                        The drug industry is using deceptive practices to circumvent the law and sell you more drugs.

                                        We’ve all seen the drug TV ads: a couple walking together on a peaceful beach, or playing with the family dog in a sunny meadow—and then we get to the appalling list of side effects that, understandably, turn off many consumers.

                                        Drug companies have to include the side effects by law; otherwise, consumers could be duped into buying drugs based on deceptive ads. But the pharmaceutical industry is fighting back, deploying deceptive maneuvers to get around disclosing the dangers of their products.

                                          NY State Senator Dies of Sepsis After Receiving Flu Vaccine

                                          Eight-year-old Amely Baez of LeFrank City, New York died on February 5, 2018 of “flu-related” symptoms, according to local health authorities. Published reports did not indicate whether the child had received the influenza vaccine.

                                          New York State Senator José Peralta (D-East Elmhurst) said Amely’s death was tragic and that it “reminds us of how dangerous the flu outbreak is” and he urged New Yorkers to “protect themselves, and their children, and get vaccinated.” He added, “We need to ensure we do everything possible to combat the spread of this deadly virus as the number of hospitalizations is increasing. The influenza vaccine can be the difference between life and death.”

                                          Partly in response to Amely’s death, Sen. Peralta partnered with NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst to sponsor free influenza vaccinations in LeFrank City on November 17, 2018. Some 90 area residents were vaccinated.

                                          On November 20, Peralta, 47, developed a fever. The following day, he became “disoriented and had trouble breathing.” He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, NY where he died that evening. “We really don’t know what happened,” said Peralta’s wife, Evelyn Peralta. “He just took a turn for the worst.”

                                          An article in The New York Times quoted Sen. Peralta’s director of communications, Chris Sosa, as saying,

                                          “It was like pulling teeth to get him (Peralta) to talk about not feeling well. He just thought he was having symptoms related to getting the flu shot.”

                                            #1 Most-read Study of 2018 in the Medical Journal Pediatrics is How a High-Fat Diet can Help Type 1 Diabetes

                                            A recent 2018 online survey of type 1 diabetics or their parents and caregivers has opened the door for others to use the ketogenic high-fat, low-carbohydrate, moderate protein diet to ease the burden of insulin injections and improve the day-to-day life of type 1 diabetics, potentially leading to remission.

                                            This was a breakthrough study, as the ketogenic diet has proven itself with diabetes type 2 sufferers, but there has been little looked into with keto for diabetes 1 patients. This study’s focus was on serious carb production.

                                            Its title is Management of Type 1 Diabetes With a Very Low–Carbohydrate Diet, and it was published by Pediatrics, the “official journal” of the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics).

                                            Dr. Lewis First, chief editor of Pediatrics, provided an article listing the top 10 items published by Pediatrics during 2018.

                                            This study was at the top of the list as the most popular article in Pediatrics for 2018.

                                              Do You Know About These Hidden Chemicals in Common Foods?

                                              Recently, the FDA announced that a group of six artificial flavors would no longer be permitted to be used as food additives. They are: synthetically-derived benzophenone, ethyl acrylate, methyl eugenol, myrcene, pulegone, and pyridine.

                                              If you’ve never heard of these, you’re not alone. Most Americans are completely unaware of the additives put into their food because the food industry does not need to list the chemicals they use in the ingredients. Instead, the federal government allows these chemicals to be obscured by being listed as “artificial flavors” or “natural flavors.”

                                              It’s time to stop letting Big Food and their crony capitalist friends get away with hiding the contents of their products and require them to list the chemicals they use in our food.

                                                The American Diabetes Association (ADA) just put out a position paper on treating diabetes. It’s focus on treatment and prevention, especially for the increasing incidents of diabetes 2 among youth, demonstrates the willful ignorance of institutions that create medical standards for the medical profession.

                                                What is ignored is the potential for treating obesity and diabetes 2 with the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet, which has proven effective for all the factors leading to diabetes and diabetes 2 itself, even improving the overall health of those afflicted with diabetes 1, the less frequent form of diabetes that requires insulin injections.

                                                  Dietary fats can be tricky business, as they’re not all the same. While some are necessary for optimal health, others need to be balanced and some need to be avoided altogether, and understanding which is which is quite crucial, considering how important fats are for optimal health.

                                                  Unfortunately, many health authorities have insisted omega-6-rich vegetable oils are healthier than saturated animal fats such as butter and lard, and this myth has been a tough one to dismantle, despite the evidence against it.

                                                  Here, I will review some of the basics, including the importance of balancing your omega-3 and omega-6 intake, and why replacing saturated animal fats with omega-6-rich vegetable oils is such a bad idea.

                                                    Raw Milk Vending Machines Flourish in Europe

                                                    Would you love to visit a grass fed family farm where you can fill up a glass bottle with farm-fresh raw milk from a vending machine explicitly made for this purpose? In the U.K., this is not at all unusual. In fact, raw milk vending machines are becoming increasingly popular, including the one recently installed at Home Farm, a dairy farm in Hassop, England.

                                                    In its first two weeks of operation, the farm owners say the machine has been a huge success and received “incredible” customer feedback. Known as the Simply Milk machine, it’s refilled every morning and provides fresh chilled milk from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

                                                    In stark contrast, while many Europeans are free to enjoy a glass of crisp raw milk anytime they like courtesy of self-serve vending machines, in North America selling raw milk is often forbidden. In Canada, for instance, it’s illegal to sell or give away raw milk, a law that’s enforced in many provinces.

                                                    Ultimately, the choice of what to eat should belong to the individual consumer, not the state or federal government. If government agencies are allowed to impose their view of “safe food” on consumers, and dictate what’s legal and what’s not, raw milk won’t be the only thing lost — one day virtually all food could be pasteurized, irradiated and/or genetically engineered.

                                                      A new review published this month (August, 2018) in the Journal Brain Sciences looked at the effectiveness of the ketogenic diet to treat adult epilepsy, adult malignant glioma (brain tumors), and Alzheimer’s disease.

                                                      It was written by Tanya J. W. McDonald and Mackenzie C. Cervenka from the Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

                                                      The review is titled “The Expanding Role of Ketogenic Diets in Adult Neurological Disorders.”

                                                      The aim of the review is to describe the evidence, preclinical and clinical, supporting Ketogenic Diet use in the management of adult epilepsy, adult malignant gliomas (brain tumors), and Alzheimer’s disease.

                                                      Several randomized controlled trials support the use of Ketogenic Diets for the treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy and there is emerging evidence that these diets are also effective in treating refractory status epilepticus, malignant glioma and Alzheimer’s disease in adults.

                                                        One of the latest nutritional discoveries that only recently began gaining good press and widespread awareness is something called resistant starch, or sometimes known as safe starch.

                                                        This is a food quality, and it’s not relegated to one food – several different foods fall into this category.

                                                        Resistant starch has been studied with increasing awareness of its ability to serve as a prebiotic, a fermentation fiber food source for friendly bacteria in the intestinal or gut flora. The results of an enhanced microbiome, in turn, lead to greater immunity to disease and improved overall health.

                                                        Several different carbohydrate plant foods contain resistant starch. And some are enhanced with resistant starch by cooling after cooking.

                                                        If it were not for the increased awareness of the microbiome’s friendly bacteria content and function over the past couple of decades, this resistant starch research information would probably still be under the radar of nutritional health awareness.

                                                          Scottish medical doctor, Malcolm Kendrick, has just written a brilliant expose on his blog explaining, scientifically, why it is impossible for saturated fats to raise LDL cholesterol levels.

                                                          As I have written many times over the years, this is the kind of information that can save your life and help you make wise dietary choices, but it is information that the U.S. government, Big Pharma, and the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media cannot afford to publish.

                                                          Because to do so would be to admit guilt in one of the biggest medical scams of all time: the lipid theory of heart disease.

                                                          This theory, which has been proven scientifically to be false, has been an economic success for cholesterol-lowering statin medical drugs, the most profitable class of medical drugs all time. This theory also promotes the low-fat diet which encourages consumption of carbohydrates from U.S. subsidized crops, as well as polyunsaturated oil, also derived from U.S. subsidized crops.

                                                          This theory of heart disease, which condemns cholesterol and saturated fat, has probably been responsible for many millions of people’s early deaths and the life-long suffering of autoimmune diseases for an entire generation.

                                                            But a new study shows that eating fish is better than first realized: It seems to be a factor that raises the odds of becoming pregnant, not only because couples who included fish on the menu had sex more often, but because they also conceived more quickly compared to people who had something else for dinner instead.

                                                            The lead study author, Audrey J. Gaskins, a research associate at Harvard, speculates that seafood might improve semen quality and egg release for ovulation.

                                                            People have been eating fish since the dawn of man. It’s been a staple for humankind in every area where fish can swim and has without a doubt been one of the foods that has kept humans alive, but now we can see in many more ways than offering mere sustenance.

                                                              A recent World Health Organization (WHO) report has reported that red meats are carcinogenic. There was an immediate fear-based reaction from some mainstream media outlets.

                                                              The London based daily tabloid The Mirror headlined an article with “No amount of alcohol, sausage or bacon is safe according to cancer experts.” There were other similar headlines throughout the UK.

                                                              The Guardian, a UK newspaper, was even more outrageous: “Yes, bacon really is killing us.” The Guardian’s take on the UK media reaction was that Britain’s diet is big on bacon, sausage, and sliced ham lunch meats, and therefore unhealthy.

                                                              The WHO report was made by World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) as part of its Continuous Update Project (CUP), which updates results of international cancer researchers every few years. However, their research did not discriminate, analyze, or explain the differences among the meat and processed meat options that are available.

                                                              It’s well known that epidemiologists who put out dietary surveys don’t ask the types of questions that indicate whether one consumes junk food meats, processed meats, or meats from free-range grass-fed and/or organic-fed animals without antibiotics or growth hormone injections.

                                                                A memo sent to EPA management said that “The study was graded unacceptable due to an inadequate presentation of the statistical data analysis.”

                                                                Some research has linked the pesticides to autism and other brain disorders. There’s also evidence to suggest that some children are more vulnerable to the chemicals than others due to their genetic makeup.

                                                                These health effects should come as no surprise when we consider that chlorpyrifos were developed as a nerve gas during World War II by the Nazis, though they weren’t used in battle.

                                                                Chemical weapons were prohibited by the Geneva Convention after WWI—so the chemical is too inhumane to use in war, but A-OK for our food, according to the government’s thinking.

                                                                  Judge Bolanos also stated that if Dewayne Johnson and his attorneys did not accept the reduction in punitive damages, that she would order a new trial.

                                                                    A San Francisco judge cast doubt recently on a jury’s $289 million damage award to a former Bay Area groundskeeper who was diagnosed with cancer after frequently spraying school grounds with a widely used weed-killer manufactured by Monsanto Co.

                                                                    Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bolanos said in a tentative ruling that she would likely overturn $250 million in punitive damages because there was no convincing evidence that Monsanto had knowingly manufactured a harmful product or acted “despicably” toward the plaintiff, Dewayne “Lee” Johnson.

                                                                    Bolanos did not announce a final ruling, but showed little indication during the hearing that she was reconsidering her tentative decision on punitive damages. “I’m not following your argument,” she told Miller at one point after the lawyer said Monsanto had failed to properly test its product or study its effects.

                                                                    “You may not have been convinced by the evidence but we were,” juror Gary Kitahata said in a letter to Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bolanos, who is considering Monsanto’s requests to reduce the damages or overturn the entire verdict. “I urge you to respect and honor our verdict and the six weeks of our lives that we dedicated to this trial.”

                                                                    Another juror, Robert Howard, said in his letter to the judge that the jury had paid “studious attention” to the evidence, closely followed Bolanos’ instruction and deliberated for several days. The possibility that “our unanimous verdict could be summarily overturned demeans our system of justice and shakes my confidence in that system,” Howard wrote.

                                                                      This gene, when operative, causes potatoes to discolour when bruised. The GMO potatoes do not discolour when bruised. They have therefore been marketed as bruise-resistant and are being sold without GMO labels in the US and Canada under innocuous-sounding names like Innate, Hibernate, and White Russet.

                                                                      After finding that “most GMO varieties were stunted, chlorotic, mutated, or sterile, and many of them died quickly, like prematurely-born babies”, Dr Rommens renounced his genetic engineering career and wrote a book about his experiences, Pandora’s Potatoes: The Worst GMOs.

                                                                      Dr Caius Rommens explains why we should be wary of the products he created.

                                                                        Published in PLOS One, the title of the study is Glyphosate affects the larval development of honey bees depending on the susceptibility of colonies.

                                                                        Most of the world’s bee supplies are used to pollinate crops by professional bee keepers. Previous studies have already confirmed that glyphosate is affecting the health of bees.

                                                                        This current study from Argentina suggests the problem may be more serious than first known, as it is affecting bee larvae in bee broods as they develop, and not just adult bees.

                                                                        It also means that most of the world’s honey supply is also contaminated with glyphosate, since most commercial honey products, including “local” honey, is the product of bees being used to pollinate crops.

                                                                        • product of USA meat

It’s a shameful case of government-sanctioned fraud.

                                                                          Current USDA policy allows foreign meat to be imported to the US and carry the “Product of USA” label if it passes through a USDA-inspected plant. The USDA loophole allows foreign multinational corporations to disguise their products and take advantage of the lucrative US market. There’s good reason to believe that this loophole also violates the federal government’s own policies that prohibit false or misleading labeling.

                                                                          • Closeup Group Of Dead Bee Isolated On White Background

New research from The University of Texas at Austin shows that honey bees exposed to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, lose some of the beneficial bacteria in their guts and are more susceptible to infection and death from harmful bacteria.

                                                                            Scientists believe this is evidence that glyphosate might be contributing to the decline of honey bees and native bees around the world.

The communities near the heaviest concentration of large hog farms also had a greater risk of infant mortality and lower birth weight.

It was the first lawsuit that went to trial alleging that Roundup and other glyphosate-based weed-killers cause cancer. Other research shows that cancer may only be the tip of the iceberg in describing the toll this chemical is taking on our health.

                                                                                There have been hundreds of lawsuits filed against Monsanto alleging that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the Roundup herbicide, causes cancer, and now finally the courts are taking the claims seriously as a federal judge recently ruled that these cases can proceed to trial.

                                                                                The World Health Organization has labeled glyphosate a “probable carcinogen” and yet the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says it isn’t—although we shouldn’t be surprised, given the crony ties that have been exposed between top EPA officials and the biotech industry. The EPA can’t be counted on to protect our health.

                                                                                How is this chemical possibly in the market? Tell the EPA to ban glyphosate!

A year after the governor of Maine signed “the Maine Food Sovereignty Act,” many Maine towns have responded to the new law by adopting ordinances that give their residents the legal right to sell food to one another without burdensome regulations.

                                                                                  There are good reasons to permit farmers and home-based food processors such as bakers to sell food to their neighbors without oversight, but in most every state this is not permitted. It’s not about food safety, but about corporate control of the food system.

                                                                                  On the day after the Maine Legislature approved the law in July of 2017, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) contacted state officials and threatened to federalize Maine’s system of livestock slaughtering and processing facilities.

                                                                                    It is often referred to as Lou Gehrig disease, named after the Yankee baseball star of decades ago whose career was cut short by ALS.

                                                                                    ALS begins with minor muscular control issues then progresses until one is completely disabled, even unable to consume food or breathe.

                                                                                    It can be a slow, miserable death for many who are stricken. ALS diagnoses have been increasing, and the pharmaceutical industry has no cures.

                                                                                    A recent animal study looked into the potential of coconut oil for preventing or reducing ALS symptoms.

                                                                                    The baby-boomer era generations are aging in large numbers, and those aging are most prone to neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS and Alzheimer’s disease.

                                                                                      The researchers refuted the misguided conventional thinking of saturated fats causing obesity. They wanted to investigate the saturated fat coconut oil as a functional food to replace pharmaceutical drugs currently used for obesity that cause adverse side effects.

                                                                                      The Brazilian researchers also expressed concern with the abundant schemes and dietary efforts at reducing calories that are impractical and difficult to maintain, not to mention often unhealthy.

                                                                                      Using refined carbohydrates and processed vegetable oils to avoid saturated fat is the lifestyle of the unhealthy, as the standard American diet (SAD) has proven.

Refined carbohydrates such as sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and flours used in processed foods are pervasive in our culture and have been recognized by many scientists open to the truth as the real culprits behind obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

                                                                                          A group of New York City’s Mt. Sinai Medical School researchers set out to analyze why and how coconut oil affects Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) patients favorably. They acknowledged some efficacy from coconut oil, and they wanted to know more.

                                                                                          Since most drug trials to develop an Alzheimer’s drug have failed miserably, the motivation to study coconut oil in order to understand how it positively affects AD was probably motivated by a desire to patent a new drug that could work similar to coconut oil, a natural food that cannot be patented.

                                                                                          Their research was based on earlier animal studies of virgin coconut oil’s effect on mouse models of coconut oil as well as other in vitro (lab culture) studies. The researchers also acknowledged the existence of many anecdotal testimonies of AD (Alzheimer’s disease) patients.

                                                                                          The Mt. Sinai report was published in the journal Science Direct, Brain Research with the title: Coconut oil decreases expression of amyloid precursor protein (APP) and secretion of amyloid peptides through inhibition of ADP-ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1).

                                                                                            In this latest study, virgin coconut oil was shown to be beneficial to the microbiome by increasing probiotic bacteria, leading to better outcomes for those suffering with diabetes.

                                                                                            This new research confirms what many have reported to us over the past 15 plus years, that virgin coconut oil is beneficial in overcoming both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

                                                                                            This new study offers a possible explanation as to how virgin coconut oil helps people with Type 1 diabetes without directly affecting insulin levels.

                                                                                              The corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media, funded in large part by the pharmaceutical industry, is promoting a lecture given in German by a Harvard medical professor who claims that coconut oil is “pure poison.”

                                                                                              The lecture was given by Dr. Karin Michels, the director of the Institute for Prevention and Tumor Epidemiology at the University of Freiburg and a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

                                                                                              Now, before I expose the old same tired lies the medical system and its media proponents claim about coconut oil, and the reasons why they are doing so, just consider the logic of making such a statement as “coconut oil is pure poison.”

                                                                                              While coconut oil has only become popular in the U.S. again in recent years, it is a traditional food that has been consumed in tropical climates where coconuts grow for many thousands of years.

                                                                                              Is it reasonable to think that all these billions of people have been poisoning themselves due to their consumption of coconut oil for the past several thousand years?

                                                                                              If it were truly a poison leading to heart disease and bad health, wouldn’t we be seeing an increase in many health problems among the millions of Americans who now use it as their primary dietary oil?

                                                                                              Is there any evidence at all for any of Dr. Michels claims?

                                                                                              No.

                                                                                              The real reason coconut oil is being attacked in the corporate media by the medical system, is because it is a threat to their toxic drugs. Because outside of the U.S., the peer reviewed literature is publishing more and more studies showing just how healthy coconut oil really is, and how it is being used in nutritional protocols to help cure many diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

                                                                                                It was written by Tanya J. W. McDonald and Mackenzie C. Cervenka from the Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

                                                                                                The review is titled “The Expanding Role of Ketogenic Diets in Adult Neurological Disorders.”

Meanwhile, pronouncements from the USA’s Alzheimer’s Association and medical press releases, warning against using coconut oil, have persisted.

                                                                                                  These international studies conclusions fly in the face of our “expert” opinions that, as a saturated fat, coconut oil threatens heart health. This misinformation continues even as medical practitioners of all types are realizing that the lipid theory of heart disease as the leading contributor to poor heart health is simply not true.

                                                                                                  The most recent study was published on July 20th, by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. This human study was conducted by academic researchers in Valencia, Spain, and titled Improvement of Main Cognitive Functions in Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease after Treatment with Coconut Oil Enriched Mediterranean Diet: A Pilot Study.

                                                                                                  This was a remarkable study, as there were measurable improvements among Alzheimer’s patients in 21 days from adding coconut oil to a Mediterranean diet.

This year’s previous studies on AD and coconut oil were also conducted outside of the U.S. (Japan and Iran.)

                                                                                                    This study is significant, because it addresses the issue of aluminum toxicity, which has been increasingly linked to AD. (See: Study: High Amounts of Aluminum in Brains of Alzheimer’s Patients.)

                                                                                                    However, there remains no curative treatment for the condition.

                                                                                                      As I have written many times over the years, this is the kind of information that can save your life and help you make wise dietary choices, but it is information that the U.S. government, Big Pharma, and the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media cannot afford to publish.

                                                                                                      Because to do so would be to admit guilt in one of the biggest medical scams of all time: the lipid theory of heart disease.

                                                                                                      This theory, which has been proven scientifically to be false, has been an economic success for cholesterol-lowering statin medical drugs, the most profitable class of medical drugs all time. This theory also promotes the low-fat diet which encourages consumption of carbohydrates from U.S. subsidized crops, as well as polyunsaturated oil, also derived from U.S. subsidized crops.

                                                                                                      This theory of heart disease, which condemns cholesterol and saturated fat, has probably been responsible for many millions of people’s early deaths and the life-long suffering of autoimmune diseases for an entire generation.

                                                                                                        However, the Star Telegram in Fort Worth, Texas has recently published a series of articles covering an 8-month investigation in the Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches across the U.S. showing that sexual abuse against children has been rampant and covered up for years.

                                                                                                        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.

                                                                                                          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.

                                                                                                              Now, MercatorNet has published a story based on a translation of the “Belgium Federal Commission on the Control and Evaluation of Euthanasia” — the nation’s official report on patient-killing by doctors. It makes for very chilling reading.

                                                                                                                A report published earlier this month (July, 2018) by Belgium’s Federal Commission for Euthanasia Control and Evaluation states that doctors assisted with the “suicides” of three minor children since the country’s parliament voted to lift age restrictions on euthanasia.

                                                                                                                The minors were 9, 11 and 17 years old, according to the report. Their conditions ranged from muscular dystrophy to brain tumors to cystic fibrosis. The conditions of all three were determined to be terminal, and euthanasia was approved unanimously by the Belgium’s euthanasia committee.

                                                                                                                In 2017, a doctor resigned from Belgium’s euthanasia commission, alleging that the committee had euthanized a demented patient who had not formally requested to die.

                                                                                                                This begs the question, can a minor child, especially a handicapped one, be expected to make such an important decision as to end one’s own life?

                                                                                                                Or are these “physician-assisted” suicides simply a way to murder children who are deemed not useful to society?

                                                                                                                  Young children perceive intuitively that the world is designed.

                                                                                                                  In 1929, child psychologist Jean Piaget called children “artificialists” who tend to regard everything as “the product of human creation.”

                                                                                                                  Piaget’s claim that young children’s minds are not sophisticated enough to distinguish between human and nonhuman causes was controversial, and subsequent studies have shown that he was wrong.

                                                                                                                  Yet he was right in saying that children start out with the intuition that the natural world was made for a purpose.

                                                                                                                  In 2004, child psychologist Deborah Kelemen suggested that young children are thus “intuitive theists” who are “disposed to view natural phenomena as resulting from nonhuman design.”

                                                                                                                  By the time they are adolescents, many children have suppressed their intuition of design. This suppression is largely due to influences from the community, especially from parents and teachers striving to acculturate children to a secular society, often in the name of “scientific literacy.”

                                                                                                                  “Intervention” usually refers to an action taken to help someone give up an abnormal addiction.

                                                                                                                  For these psychologists, however, it means convincing children to give up a normal intuition.

                                                                                                                  Thus education becomes indoctrination.

It’s about the avoidance of individual human suffering.”

                                                                                                                    The Daily Wire observes:

                                                                                                                    As noted by LifeNews, the “human suffering” that Dawkins refers to here is disingenuous, considering that many parents of Down children report loving their children and having much joy in their family.

                                                                                                                    Dawkins advised such families to just “Abort it and try again” in 2014 when one Twitter follower asked what to do about her Down syndrome diagnosed baby. “It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice,” he said.

                                                                                                                    The atheist lamenting about what’s “immoral” makes little sense.

                                                                                                                    In Denmark, only four Down syndrome babies were born in 2016. In the neighboring country of Iceland, the eradication of Down syndrome babies has reached near 100%. France has gotten in on the race, too; most recently, the country banned a television commercial featuring Down syndrome children because it upset the mothers who previously aborted them.

                                                                                                                      In the new political science that developed in the Progressive Era, study of what constitutes wise opinion was dropped. The new political scientist was to abandon the supposedly played out mines of political theory.

                                                                                                                      Progress, you would have thought as an intellectual in that period, must proceed on “scientific” principles. Max Weber’s “fact/value” distinction meant that facts alone could be submitted to scientific inquiry, while issues of right and wrong (“values”) could be examined only from outside their own assumptions.

                                                                                                                      Here, then, is partly where we get our present day intellectual prejudice against crediting what politicians say they are doing and our constant suspicion that the real truth must be something else.

                                                                                                                      It arose in Germany as an element of the “science of the state” (Statswissenschaft) and the “general theory of the state” (Allgemeine Staatslehere). And it fit well with the new science of politics, Politische Wissenschaft. With the new method, known states were compared historically, with perfection of the state as the goal.

                                                                                                                      In the latter half of the 19th century, these ideas entered the United States in the heads of young Americans who, lacking domestic graduate schools in public law, embarked on studies in Germany.

                                                                                                                      In time the concept of eugenics gained force in the Second Reich — decades before the Nazis employed it. When, in 1904, the German Empire exterminated almost the whole race of native Hereros in German Southwest Africa, it was publicly justified in terms of Darwinism. There were few protests.

                                                                                                                      A generation earlier, the first American convert to Teutonic ideas of political science and the founder of its U.S. version was John W. Burgess. Dazzled by what he found in Germany, Burgess, back home, proclaimed the ultimate end of the state to be “the perfection of humanity; the civilization of the world; the perfect development of human reason, and its attainment to universal command over individualism; the apotheosis of man.”

                                                                                                                      German-trained instructors, helped shape the America field of political science over the next generation. From political science at Johns Hopkins, meanwhile, came a number of historicist scholars, including Woodrow Wilson. We can chart the Progressive Era from the 1880s because of the work of Wilson.

                                                                                                                      In America today, Darwinism’s triumph in something called “political science” continues to batter at the philosophical foundations of republican government.

                                                                                                                        When one thinks of the concept of “eugenics” most people think back to the atrocities of Nazi Germany and the genocide of ethnic cleansing during the Hitler regime.

                                                                                                                        What most Americans do not realize is that the “scientific” field of study known as “eugenics” originated in the United States, being inspired by Darwinian evolution, and is responsible for terrible social and racial injustices here in the U.S. before Hitler’s atrocities that occurred during WWII.

                                                                                                                        And the “scientific” field of eugenics is still alive and well today, even though the term “eugenics” is no longer popular.

                                                                                                                        Part of America’s dark eugenics past is the story of how indigenous African people were kidnapped from their villages in the early 1900s and brought to America as “freaks,” displayed as “missing links” to Darwin’s theory of human evolution, and displayed to the public in cages at Public Fairs and Zoos.

                                                                                                                        The Discovery Institute has produced a new documentary about this dark period of America’s past called “Human Zoos.” Here is a synopsis:

                                                                                                                        “In September 1906, nearly a quarter of a million people flocked to the Bronx Zoo in New York City. Many came for a startling new exhibit in the Zoo’s Monkey House.

                                                                                                                        But it wasn’t a monkey they came to see. It was a man. His name was Ota Benga. A pygmy from the African Congo, Ota Benga was exhibited in a cage along with monkeys.

                                                                                                                        Benga was not alone.

                                                                                                                        He was one of literally thousands of indigenous peoples who were put on public display throughout America in the early twentieth century.

                                                                                                                        Often touted as “missing links” between man and apes and as examples of the “lower” stages of human evolution, these native peoples were harassed, demeaned, and jeered at. Their public display was arranged with the enthusiastic support of the most elite members of the scientific community, and it was promoted uncritically by America’s leading newspapers.

                                                                                                                        Human Zoos tells the horrifying story of this effort to dehumanize entire classes of people in the name of science.”

                                                                                                                          What Does it Mean to be a “Christian"?

                                                                                                                          The name “Christian” carries a wide range of meaning and understanding today, as it has throughout history.

                                                                                                                          It is obviously related to “Christ,” which is from the Greek translation of the Hebrew word for “Messiah,” and refers to the person of Jesus Christ. A general definition of “Christian” then would be someone who follows the teachings or doctrine of Jesus Christ.

                                                                                                                          The teachings of Jesus Christ are contained in the Bible, but how they are understood and what kind of people should bear the name “Christian” is highly debatable, and by no means universally accepted or understood.

                                                                                                                          It is interesting to note that the followers of Jesus during his lifetime on earth and shortly after did not refer to themselves as “Christians.”
