Hundreds of Thousands of Children in the U.S. are Being Separated from Their Parents - Many are Sexually Trafficked

The corporate sponsored "mainstream" media has been fixated in recent days with reports that children are being separated from their parents at U.S. borders. For the news sources that are critical of the current administration, one is led to believe that this is a recent problem that just started. However, this limited ...

A Young Child's Intuitive Belief in a Creator/Designer is Only Removed by Indoctrination

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 ...

    • Mainstream Medicine Admits Medical Cannabis is Effective in Treating Leukemia – But Only Synthetic Patented Version

      Will Medical Cannabis Soon Be Legally Available to Everyone?

      There are and have been a few major pro-marijuana bills introduced on the Congressional floor of Capitol Hill over the past several months. Some have been stalled, but an important one remains viable with bi-partisan support, and President Trump has mentioned that he’d probably sign it.

      This bill would eliminate the constant haggling of including the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment, which comes under threat each year from being included in the annual spending federal spending bill. This amendment prohibits the Justice Department from using federal funds for intervening in state-approved medical cannabis activities under cover of federal laws superseding state laws.

      Earlier in 2017, Department of Justice (DOJ) head U.S. Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions pressured Congressional leaders to not include the amendment. This would allow the DOJ to unleash an uninhibited DEA open season for cracking down on all cannabis use regardless of state laws and its medical applications.

      The Roherbacher-Blunenauer protective amendment finally went through recently this year despite being blocked from being voted for on the House Floor even with bipartisan support in the House and Senate. Unfortunately, bills can be killed in legislative committees without going to a vote.

      However, this new bill would finally grant total states’ rights to cannabis by federal law without having to be haggled over every year when the national budget bill comes up for discussion.

        Study: Chemo Not Necessary for 70% of Breast Cancer Victims

        The results of a 10,000 plus breast cancer patient prospective (follow-up) study demonstrated that many women can refuse chemotherapy without lowering their survival risk.

        Dr. Robert Rowen commented on the study via his Facebook page:

        “This will be significant for some 70,000 American women who otherwise would be placed in a locked train to chemotherapy land. I can’t tell you how many women I’ve seen who were told, immediately after the positive biopsy, that they must get chemotherapy. And they truly suffered.”

        This study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine the same day it was announced at an American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago, June 18, 2018, where Dr. Kathy Albain announced:

        “With results of this groundbreaking study, we now can safely avoid chemotherapy in about 70 percent of patients who are diagnosed with the most common form of breast cancer. For countless women and their doctors, the days of uncertainty are over.”

          Are Vitamins and Supplements Really Useless?

          A recent meta-analysis—a review of over 100 different randomized controlled trials—found that multivitamins, vitamin D, calcium, and vitamin C showed no benefits in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, or premature death but did find benefits for B-vitamins in preventing stroke.

          Despite glaring issues with the analysis, and positive findings regarding the benefits of supplements notwithstanding (not only in this meta-analysis but in a number of others), the media is replete with headlines such as “Yet Another Study Says Vitamin Supplements Are Worthless.”

          This reporting evidences the media’s penchant to twist the facts to fit a particular narrative about supplements—one which benefits drug companies that spend billions on advertising each year.

          The drug industry, along with the biased media and federal agencies they exert influence over, is undermining cheap, safe, and effective natural medicine in the hope that they can sell us more of their synthetic, ineffective, expensive drugs. We cannot let them succeed.

            How to Handle Underestimated Indoor Pollution, Which Can Be Worse than Outdoor Pollution

            Your indoor air should be cleaner than outdoors, unless you live in a remote, pristine, heavily-wooded or coastline area. But for most of us, that’s not the case. And most of us spend much more time indoors than outdoors thinking we’re safe from the pollution of vehicular traffic, aircraft aerosol spraying, and industrial pollution.

            Most people don’t think in terms of indoor pollution. But due to modern construction and insulation materials demanded for better energy conservation, chemically-laced furnishing and carpeting, stored toxic cleaning materials, and other particulates brought indoors into dwellings that are airtight, recycled air for cooling and heating tends to accumulate an invisible cloud of toxic pollution indoors.

            The toxic chemicals “off-gas” or release their vapors into indoor environments that are poorly ventilated with fresh air. In addition to chemical and particulate pollution, oxygen is diminished by the necessary practice of breathing without outdoor air circulating.

            The air inside your home or office can be worse than outside air. Since most of us spend the bulk of our time indoors, it would be wise to ensure our inside air is as healthy as possible.

            The amount and extent of indoor air toxins are surprisingly high. But there are ways of purifying your indoor air and protecting against those indoor airborne toxins.

              Low Iodine In Women Before Pregnancy Associated with Lower IQ in their Children

              I have been practicing holistic medicine for nearly 25 years. Among all the items I have found successful, one stands head and shoulders above rest: iodine. Iodine is one of the most fascinating essential elements. After checking thousands of patients (along with my partners), I can state with confidence that the vast majority of our population is iodine-deficient. Sadly, most are severely iodine deficient.

              The consequences of iodine deficiency are severe and include cancer and diseases of the glandular tissues including the breast, ovary, uterus, prostate, pancreas, and thyroid.

              Iodine is also necessary for a fetus to develop normally. It is well-known and accepted that iodine deficiency in a pregnant woman can result in a lowered IQ in her child.

              Researchers in England examined the relationship between maternal preconception (before the child is conceived) iodine status and their offspring’s cognitive function (IQ level) at age 6-7 years.

                Dr. Rowen: A Stunning Ozone Miracle, Perhaps the Most Dramatic of my Career

                I’d like to share with you one of the most remarkable results with an ozone injection I’ve ever seen.

                This lady traveled to us from Maryland. Her father joined her, coming from Guinea Africa for his own challenges. He lost many friends in the West Africa Ebola epidemic.

                His nurse wife has seen my YouTube videos and through them taught herself how to administer simply ear and water ozone. She has cured many cases of malaria, stroke, infection, and other serious conditions with these simple and non-invasive methods.

                Kora has a serious genetic bleeding disorder. Injections are risky for her. She knows/knew this and openly requested and signed an ironclad waiver, since she was in horrible pain and neuropathy from sciatic nerve root compression, having been through 3 failed disc surgeries, with L5-S1 disc pinching spinal nerves.

                She has had foot drop (serious condition). Loss of sensation in lower R [right] leg and foot, pins and needles, muscle atrophy, inability to walk on heels and walk normally.

                She has been treated with IV narcotics, oral narcotics and every sort of pain reliever, and toxic antidepressants. She is a medical assistant and quite savvy.

                I did not expect what we saw – 100% relief of all the symptoms of physically impinged nerves in her spinal canal from the disc disease.

                  FDA Bows to Public Pressure: Compounding Pharmacies Can Continue Making Natural Medicines

                  ANH members played a key role in thwarting efforts to eliminate access to personalized medicine.

                  Two years ago, the FDA released a draft guidance saying that a compounding pharmacy (a pharmacy that makes customized medicines for individual patients) cannot register as both an “outsourcing” (503B) and a traditional (503A) facility.

                  We issued an action alert to ANH members to speak out against this policy and submitted detailed legal comments drafted by our general counsel.

                  The agency just released the final guidance, and the FDA listened to our criticisms. The bottom line is that this change will make it much easier for many compounding pharmacies to stay in business, meaning patients will be better able to get the medicines, such as nutrient IV infusions and bioidentical hormones like progesterone and estriol, that they need.

                  This is an important victory.

                    • Our Daily Dose: The Lunacy of Water Fluoridation

                      Two Major Legal Victories in Federal Court Case to End Water Fluoridation

                      In November 2016, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) together with a coalition of organizations and private citizens, including Food & Water Watch, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology, and Moms Against Fluoridation, presented a petition1 to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling on the agency to exercise its authority to prohibit the addition of fluoridation chemicals to the public’s drinking water supplies under Section 21 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

                      FAN’s petition was made on the grounds that a large body of animal, cellular and human research shows that fluoride is neurotoxic at doses within the range now seen in fluoridated communities, and included over 2,500 pages of scientific documentation detailing these health risks.

                      The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) allows individuals to petition the EPA to regulate and prohibit the “particular use“ of a chemical if the petitioner can show that it presents an unreasonable risk to the general public or susceptible subpopulations. TSCA specifically gives the EPA the authority to prohibit drinking water additives.

                      However, in an attempt to put up an unreasonable roadblock the EPA dismissed our petition based on a questionable interpretation of Congress’s recent amendments to TSCA. In response, FAN and our coalition partners filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California legally challenging the EPA’s denial of our petition.

                      It also prompted the Natural Resources Defense Council to file an amicus brief challenging EPA’s strained interpretation of the law. Since challenging the EPA in court, a lot has happened to move us closer to a successful outcome. We have won our first two battles in federal court, new government-funded research has been published which strengthens our case, and our day in court has been scheduled.

                        Hundreds of Thousands of Children in the U.S. are Being Separated from Their Parents - Many are Sexually Trafficked

                        The corporate sponsored “mainstream” media has been fixated in recent days with reports that children are being separated from their parents at U.S. borders.

                        For the news sources that are critical of the current administration, one is led to believe that this is a recent problem that just started.

                        However, this limited and biased view is not even close to the truth.

                        Health Impact News has covered the issue of child trafficking of minor children coming across the U.S. borders since 2016, when Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) published a six-month investigation into the matter during the Obama administration.

                        Focusing on a couple of thousand children currently in border facilities without their parents also ignores a far greater problem, one that is a national crisis, and that is the 400,000+ children who have been taken away from their parents, and the practice of child trafficking that is continuing to happen in every U.S. state every single day.

                        The overall real problem in this tragedy is one of child trafficking, and it is time that this issue gets public attention.

                            Increase in Psych Drugs Correlates to Increase in Suicides in the U.S.

                            Coinciding with the recent tragic suicides of celebrities Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported the suicide rate in the U.S. jumped 30 percent from 2000 to 2016.

                            In light of such high-profile suicides, there are, naturally, calls for “more effective treatments” for depression.

                            However, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) International, a mental health industry watchdog, warns that these calls can include demands for more antidepressants without investigating how these and other treatments may be a potential cause of, or contributing factor in, suicides.

                            CCHR cited how psychiatric drug prescriptions, including sedatives, antidepressants, psycho-stimulants and antipsychotics, increased 117 percent from 1999 to 2013 and, during that same time period, the CDC had reported the suicide rate had increased 24 percent.

                            Within three years, that figure is now 30 percent. A CDC survey also found the number of Americans who took an antidepressant over the past month — despite 49 official psychiatric drug warnings of the adverse effects of self-harm, suicide or suicidal thoughts — rose by 65 percent between 1999 and 2014.

                            Fashion designer Ms. Spade was taking medication for her depression.

                              I just got a video of the child I mentioned in my last post. He has severe autism. He is the son of a respected board certified physician who has declared with 100% certainty that his beloved son was vaccine injured. He, like any parent, would move heaven and earth for his child. He has given permission to share.

                              Two days ago the child had his fourth ozone treatment in our office. As usual, we had to restrain him. But strange, the high pitched cries were absent. We had already been told that a few days before, in his sleep, he was actually talking sentences, though the parents could not make out the words. This was new. He has also been taking supplements to reduce his high levels of aluminum documented by lab in his system.

                              The video you see here is also showing quite new behavior. In the doctor’s words,

                              “He was actually processing how to ride the scooter. It was the first time I’ve ever seen that in him. In the past he’d get frustrated. This time he moved the scooter backwards and time he accomplished riding it. He was smiling and was happy, also a first. He was playful. He was smiling. This has never happened before.

                              A few days ago he was talking in his sleep, he was engaging in a conversation while sleeping. This was also a first. I am just to impressed and thankful to God, and to you and Dr. Su and your staff. You care.”

                              I told the doctor that a case like this means more to us that most any other case. This child still has a life to live.

                                Mother Faces Jury Trial As Texas Seeks to Terminate Her Parental Rights Over Daughter Injured by Gardasil Vaccine

                                A trial began this week for a mother who was separated from her baby after the 4-month-old mistakenly received a Gardasil-9 vaccine intended for her older brother. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services seeks to convince a jury to terminate the parental rights of Anita Vasquez for her now 22-month-old daughter, Aniya Blu Vasquez.

                                Jury selection began on Monday, June 18, 2018, for the trial which is expected to last up to 2 weeks.

                                We originally reported their story in June of last year.

                                The previously healthy baby, Aniya, began showing symptoms of problems almost immediately after getting the Gardasil shot, a vaccine which is not approved for use in children under 10 years of age.

                                Her mother sought medical attention for the symptoms that her daughter exhibited, asking each practitioner about the connection between the symptoms and the Gardasil-9 shot that her baby should not have received, but her concerns were rebuffed at every turn.

                                No doctor that saw her daughter wanted to admit that the vaccine could have any kind of side effects.

                                The doctor who made a medical error in giving her the vaccine has suffered no consequences, but the baby’s family has been ripped apart, as the mother is being blamed for her daughter’s medical condition.

                                  IQ Rates in Children Plummeting - Environmental Toxins to Blame?

                                  Over the past several decades, American children’s physical and mental well-being has steadily deteriorated. Over half (54%) of all U.S. children (as of 2007) had a chronic health condition—with developmental and behavioral problems, obesity, allergies, asthma and mental health conditions leading the pack—and the prevalence of many of these conditions doubled from 1988 to the mid-2000s.

                                  Federal reporting on pediatric health indicators in 2017 showed that one in five children (kindergarteners through adolescents) were obese, one in ten had activity limitations resulting from chronic health problems, and one in seventeen (more males than females) had, according to a parent, “serious difficulties with emotions, concentration, behavior or getting along with other people.”

                                  In addition, 12% of adolescents suffered a major depressive episode in the previous year, with the prevalence of teenage depression rising continuously since 2004 and suicide representing the second leading cause of death for both teens and young adults.

                                  Vaccines are one of the most widespread and ongoing sources of prenatal and childhood exposure to metals that negatively affect the brain. Prenatal exposure—as occurs with the mercury-containing flu shots and aluminum-containing pertussis vaccines now routinely administered to pregnant women—is particularly dangerous as early exposure can impair subsequent growth and development of neurons. The U.S. requires the largest number of vaccines for school entry of any developed nation, although compulsory vaccination has been trending upward in Europe as well.

                                    Loss of Privacy: Government Collecting and Storing DNA Samples of Newborn Babies - Available to Law Enforcement and for Medical Research

                                    Did you know that it is now common practice in all 50 U.S. states to collect DNA samples from all newborn babies and store them in data banks, which can later be made available to law enforcement or doctors wanting to do medical research?

                                    These DNA samples are contained in blotted blood spots from babies’ pin-pricked heels taken within hours of birth. The storage length legally allowed for newborn DNA blood spots varies from state to state, from as little as three months to indefinitely.

                                    Federal law, through the agencies of The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), a branch of the National Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), requires the blood spots be taken for research purposes in all 50 states.

                                    Twila Brase, RN, PHN, co-founder and president of CCHF, Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom states:

                                    “That which the government holds, the government owns. A child’s DNA held by the government could be sequenced, meaning a baby’s genetic code could be completely detailed and mapped—and then recorded in a state government database, used and shared. This is private information America’s tiniest citizens, who will grow into adults stripped of their genetic privacy when they weren’t able to protect themselves.”

                                    Recent media reports about law enforcement using these stored DNA samples to hunt down suspected criminals have brought this issue of privacy and consent over stored DNA samples from infants to the forefront of the public.

                                    If you choose to have your baby born in a hospital setting, it would be wise to know what your state’s policy is on DNA samples collected, and what your options are.

                                      Americans are in an uproar about illegal immigrant parents and children separated at the border. The level of hysteria surrounding this topic has reached a fever pitch with senators like Chuck Schumer mugging distraught for the cameras at every opportunity.

                                      While the shrill voices shriek loudly about the rights of Mexicans and other assorted border jumpers, American parental rights are being stripped from them, unconstitutionally, every single day.

                                      American parents have lost their due process and Fourth Amendment rights, and most of them don’t even know it. Most anyone who has been visited by Child Protective Services can testify to the absolute terror that the state can inflict on a family for very little or no reason at all.

                                      Right now in the state of Mississippi, Michael Chambers is missing his little girl, Belle.

                                      His nightmare began when a Mississippi social worker, Kyra Reed (who also goes by Kyra Carson), knocked on his door demanding entrance without a warrant. Chambers was never told what the charges were.

                                      Chambers refused to allow the social worker in without a warrant, and this began a process of the social worker trying to get into the home without a warrant.

                                      When she was unsuccessful, she simply abducted Chambers’ daughter from school.

                                        Difficult Father's Day for Dads Who Lost Their Children to Corrupt Child Protection System

                                        It is Father’s Day. The day that we honor dads. The holiday began decades ago as a day to celebrate the strong, heroic, protective men who inspire, encourage, and push us to be the best we can be.

                                        Most of us have a beautiful, nostalgic image of what today is supposed to be like, but for too many of our readers, that image is a painful reminder of what could be, what should be – but isn’t.

                                        Children and parents are being separated by the hundreds of thousands in the United States. There are many fathers who want nothing more than to be with their children today, but a judge or a social worker has decided that they can’t be.

                                        If they had done something wrong, the bitter separation might be somewhat easier to bear, but many dads today are in a situation that was created by a false allegation or by asking for a second medical opinion. They wanted to protect their children and give their best, but people who see their children as little more than dollar signs have stolen that basic human right from them.

                                        May God soon bring about the day of restoration of families, and may He hold and protect all of the children, and comfort every one who is missing a loved one today.

                                          U.S. Government Continues to Pay Millions in Vaccine Injuries and Death Settlements

                                          The federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services just concluded their second meeting of 2018 on June 15th.

                                          These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).

                                          The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.

                                          Drug manufacturers in the vaccine market can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death.

                                          This has resulted in a huge increase of vaccines entering the market, and the U.S. government, through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is the largest purchaser of these vaccines, spending in excess of $4 billion taxpayer dollars each year to purchase these vaccines.

                                          If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached.

                                          As far as we know, Health Impact News is the only media source that publishes these reports each quarter. Past reports can be found here.

                                          The June 15, 2018 report states that 263 petitions were filed during the 3-month time period between 2/16/18 – 5/15/18, with 147 cases being adjudicated, and 113 cases compensated.

                                          But for some reason, the DOJ report only lists 68 of the settlements, leading one to wonder why only these particular cases were listed.

                                          These 68 cases, specify the vaccine, the injury, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement.

                                          53 of the 68 cases were for injuries (and one death) due to the flu vaccine, making the annual flu shot the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., by far.

                                            Why Fish Is the Ultimate Superfood

                                            You’ve heard fish is good for you.

                                            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.

                                              Are Red Meats Really Carcinogenic?

                                              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.

                                              So we’ll do that instead in this article.

                                                Study: People Eating Eggs Have Less Risk for Heart Disease

                                                A new study, published by the BMJ (British Medical Journal) in May 2018, found that people consuming eggs regularly were less at risk for heart disease than those who consumed no eggs.

                                                The title of the Chinese study is Associations of egg consumption with cardiovascular disease in a cohort study of 0.5 million Chinese adults.

                                                Over a half-million Chinese, between the ages of 30 and 79, were recruited across various regions of China and surveyed for egg consumption. Those with histories of cancer, heart disease, stroke, or diabetes were excluded from the study.

                                                Those remaining, slightly under a half-million, were followed for several years to determine incidents of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. The average egg consumption varied from none to over one a day.

                                                The study’s conclusion:

                                                “Our findings suggested that daily egg consumption (<1 egg) [actually .8 daily on average] was associated with lower risk of CVD [cardiovascular disease], IHD [ischemic heart disease], MCE [major coronary events], hemorrhagic stroke and ischaemic stroke among Chinese middle-aged adults. Our findings contribute scientific evidence to the dietary guidelines with regard to egg consumption for the healthy Chinese adult."

                                                The study noted that morbidity from strokes is higher in China than Western nations where deaths from ischemic heart disease (ISD) are higher. An average egg consumption of .8 could translate to five to six eggs per week.

                                                The Chinese study also referenced an earlier smaller Japanese study, the Life Span Study in Japan, and found that “daily egg consumption was associated with a 30% lower risk of total stroke mortality” compared to no or occasional consumption of eggs.

                                                  The Nutritional Calorie Theory for Weight-loss Benefits the Soft Drink Industry - Not Consumer's Health

                                                  A new study has been published questioning the validity of counting food calories as an indicator of health and obesity.

                                                  22 researchers from around the world agreed that the theory stating a “calorie is a calorie,” no matter what the food source, is not a theory backed by science.

                                                  An enduring dietary dogma has been the emphasis on calories, even to the extent of calorie counting one’s food intake and comparing the food’s caloric values as provided by tables of calorie measurements according to food types and amounts as an indicator of whether or not a food is healthy.

                                                  This theory of food nutrition lacks scientific merit, similar to the saturated fat dogma/cholesterol dogma which has been contradicted by real science. It benefits the soft drink industry, which would like everyone to believe that calories from their highly processed drinks are no different than calories from fruits and vegetables.

                                                    The High-fat Ketogenic Diet for Cognitive Health: Proven Remedies for the Alzheimer's Epidemic

                                                    The failure of Big Pharma to develop an Alzheimer’s drug has been well-documented in the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media.

                                                    As Alzheimer’s diagnoses continue to increase, drug companies are scrambling to develop the next big drug to market to seniors. In modern times, the most successful drugs in sales, so far, have been cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, as one out of every five people over the age of 50 are now taking drugs to lower one’s cholesterol, raking in billions of dollars for pharmaceutical companies.

                                                    The sick irony to this is that lowering one’s cholesterol artificially is directly linked to declining cognitive health and diseases such as Alzheimer’s, since 25% of one’s total cholesterol is located in the brain.

                                                    The failed scientific hypothesis behind these drugs is that cholesterol is a cause of heart disease, and that diets high in saturated fats contribute to high cholesterol.

                                                    However, the actual science shows almost the opposite, and when one looks at death rates, for example, lower cholesterol rates do not equate to longer life – in fact the converse is true: higher cholesterol levels lead to longer life spans.

                                                    The pharmaceutical industry and the U.S. government cannot afford to reverse their warnings against saturated fats and cholesterol, however, as it would be the same as confessing that the entire statin drug industry has been a scam, and that statin drugs actually cause more harm than good.

                                                    This is the main reason why the USDA must continue supporting a low-fat diet and condemning saturated fats, even though the science does not support their positions.

                                                    It is no surprise, therefore, to learn that peer-reviewed scientific studies continue to show that the high-fat ketogenic diet supports cognitive health and can help prevent or reduce cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

                                                    Here are four new studies just published on the high-fat ketogenic diet related to cognitive health, and preventing Alzheimer’s Disease.

                                                        A highly controversial natural food substance, carrageenan, a seaweed derivative used in conventional, “natural,” and some organic foods, was just reapproved by USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue.

                                                        This move overrides the recommendation of the National Organic Standards Board, an expert industry panel set up by Congress.

                                                        After hearing from medical and scientific experts describing carrageenan’s link to intestinal inflammation, cancer, and other human health risks, the NOSB voted to remove carrageenan from the list of approved synthetic and non-organic substances for use in organic food production.

                                                        In a move unprecedented during the last quarter century of organic industry rulemaking, the USDA ignored the NOSB vote in the Federal Register without an opportunity for the public to comment on their decision before it goes into effect.

                                                        “This is the latest instance of the Trump/Purdue administration siding with powerful agribusiness interests. They are running roughshod over the will of Congress that established the NOSB as a buffer to insulate organic regulations from corrupt corporate lobbyists,” said Mark A. Kastel, Senior Farm Policy Analyst at The Cornucopia Institute, a Wisconsin-based nonprofit that acts as an organic industry watchdog.

                                                          A controversial plant-based meat and egg manufacturer’s products are touted as the eventual answer to large scale factory farming that focuses on livestock for most of the population’s meat, eggs, and dairy products. This company is one of the leaders in the current trend of vegan lab produced meats, eggs, and cheese.

                                                          The high-tech food start-up company Hampton Creek, now renamed JUST, and its CEO Josh Tetrick, and its financial backers with Bill Gates among them, see this as the future of food.

                                                          This seems appropriate for the globalist corporate food agenda, as Gates sees GMOs as the future of food as well, and he owns a half-million shares of Monsanto stock, valued at $23 million in 2013.

                                                          JUST’s mission statement of providing plant based meats and eggs to prevent the slaughter of farm animals and its inherent large scale ecological damage also implies a future of genetically engineered meat products created in laboratores.

                                                          “Tetrick explained how, rather than slaughtering a chicken, scientists could extract stem cells from a bird’s fallen feather and grow them into muscle cells.”

                                                          Reducing factory farmed livestock foods is a noble and worthy aspiration.

                                                          But are lab created meats, eggs, and cheeses really healthy options?

                                                            Although that is surely an exaggeration, soup has a longstanding reputation for nourishing convalescents.

                                                              Sesame seeds are generally regarded as nutritionally inconsequential ornamental additions to bread and bagels or incorporated in culinary presentations to add visual interest and subtle flavor nuances, especially with Chinese cuisine.

                                                              As is the case with most medicinal foods, consuming small quantities of sesame seeds often over time is recommended to help improve health and resist disease. Sesame seeds are high in calories, which scares some calorie counters away.

                                                              But it only takes a small amount, around a quarter-cup daily of these inexpensive nutritionally dense seeds, to receive sesame seeds’ health benefits and protection against many autoimmune diseases. The medicinal aspects of sesame seeds were used by ancient cultures thousands of years ago.

                                                              During the last twenty years or so, western medical research has been discovering valid clinical applications of sesame seeds and their compounds.

                                                              One way to get more sesame seed into one’s diet is to utilize the “nut butter” form, tahini, used in popular Asian and Middle-Eastern foods such as hummus.

                                                                We have previously reported about the problem beer drinkers face today with most beers being contaminated with glyphosate, the active ingredient in the world’s most used herbicide, Round Up.

                                                                In the United States, beer makers have had a hard time finding uncontaminated barley, a staple in most beer making recipes. This is due to the fact that barley, along with other crops grown in the northern climates, is desiccated at harvest time with glyphosate to control the harvest before snow comes.

                                                                A report out of Germany also confirmed that Germany’s top beers, known world-wide for their high standards of quality, were also contaminated with glyphosate.

                                                                Now, it is being reported that genetic engineers in California are developing a GMO version to hops, to create “fake beer.”

                                                                  The recent Monsanto-Bayer merger has been approved by both American and European continent authorities, merging two of the world’s top seed biotech companies and producers of genetically modified seeds.

                                                                  Bayer, a company based out of Germany, is a name most often associated with aspirin in the United States and around the world. But even before this merger, they already hold a huge market share of seed production.

                                                                  Bayer is somewhat constrained in developing their GMO products, as Germany bans the cultivation of GMO crops. Most of Bayer’s GMO development is done in the USA, and by purchasing Monsanto, they will become, by far, the largest GMO company in the world.

                                                                  This has prompted some to refer to the Bayer-Monsanto merger as “A Marriage Made in Hell.”

                                                                    But the lobbyists omitted to mention that GM Bt insecticidal maize targeting the fall armyworm has already failed in different regions due to pests becoming resistant to the GM Bt toxins in the crop.

                                                                    The lobbyists also ignored the fact that agroecological methods, such as attracting ants to feed on armyworm eggs, are proving successful.

                                                                    Now we’ve been alerted to another agroecological and non-GMO method that is working well in Africa as a defence against the fall armyworm.

                                                                      Even though there were apparently no complaints, and no one reporting any illness due to the food being sold in this private market, the city of Minneapolis decided to shut them down, stating that they did not have proper retail licenses, and that some of their food was “dangerous” because they were selling fresh raw milk and meat that had not been USDA inspected, according to ABC 5 KSTP.

                                                                      Will Winter, the owner of the market, links members of his buyer’s club with up to 50 different farmers.

                                                                      He disagrees that the club was operating illegally without licenses, because it is not a retail store, but a private club.

                                                                      “The reason this is legal is it’s a private transaction between consenting adults… Never a complaint, never made anyone sick, never had any questions about our food.”

                                                                        A California Superior Court ruled last week that a man dying of cancer, who is suing Monsanto, can present evidence that Monsanto covered up research linking glyphosate to cancer.

                                                                        Glyphosate is the main ingredient in Roundup, the world’s most prevalent herbicide used in agriculture, that has been found in 93% of Americans’ urine, most mothers’ breast milk, and is probably residing inside of every person alive on planet Earth.

                                                                        Provided that the trial will go forward without any more legal maneuvering by Monsanto, 46-year-old DeWayne Johnson, who has terminal cancer and only months left to live, will take the stand against Monsanto in a California court on June 18, in what is being called a “Landmark Lawsuit.”

                                                                        Last week Judge Curtis Karnow issued an order clearing the way for jurors to consider not just scientific evidence related to what caused Johnson’s cancer, but allegations that Monsanto suppressed evidence of the risks of its weed killing products. Karnow ruled that the trial will proceed and a jury would be allowed to consider possible punitive damages.

                                                                        There are more than 4,000 other cancer victims who have filed lawsuits against Monsanto since the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) published a report linking glyphosate to non-Hodgkin lymphoma back in 2015.

                                                                        Therefore, should this case actually make it to trial, and DeWayne Johnson gets his day in court before a jury, it could set quite a precedent.

                                                                        • Roundup

                                                                          Glyphosate-based herbicide caused adverse health effects in rats at a dose claimed to be safe by regulators, according to a new study. Glyphosate herbicides are used on the vast majority of all GM crops worldwide.

                                                                          The study used the US Environmental Protection Agency’s acceptable daily dietary exposure level of glyphosate – 1.75 mg per kg of bodyweight per day. The same concentration was given to the rats daily over a 3-month period.

                                                                          The study was focused on the newborn, infancy and adolescence phases of life. The results reveal that glyphosate-based herbicide (GBH) was able to alter certain important biological parameters, mainly relating to sexual development, genotoxicity, and the intestinal microbiome.

                                                                          The effects occurred at a dose deemed safe by regulators to ingest on a daily basis over a long-term period. In human-equivalent terms the dosing period corresponded to the period from the embryo stage to 18 years of age.

In addition, the study found a correlation between a high environmental exposure to glyphosate and an increased frequency of reproductive disorders (miscarriage and birth defects).

But despite mounting evidence, the EPA continues to ignore glyphosate’s hazards, and it looks like Monsanto’s under-the-table influence may be a reason why.

                                                                              Monsanto has launched a campaign to pressure the EPA into declaring glyphosate safe. It is terrified of losing the profits from selling this ubiquitous herbicide.

                                                                              The use of glyphosate on U.S. farmland has exploded in recent years. A recent study found that Americans’ exposure to the pesticide has increased fivefold since it was first introduced more than 20 years ago.

                                                                                There is now evidence to show that this is the case for glyphosate-tolerant plants. Where there is gene flow from the plants into the natural populations, the offspring will have increased fitness and can spread their transgenic DNA more effectively than assumed.

                                                                                Glyphosate-tolerant GM plants have been grown commercially for more than 20 years and are the most commonly grown GM plants worldwide. Nevertheless, their high potential for uncontrolled spread has so far not been investigated in detail in any official risk assessment.

                                                                                There are some previous findings showing enhanced fitness of transgenic plants. Especially GM oilseed rape and rice have several times succeeded in introgressing natural populations. Contrary to expectations, the resulting transgenic offspring very often persisted in the environment and continued to propagate.

                                                                                Chinese researchers have clearly shown that even in a glyphosate-free environment higher fitness does occur. They are demanding that further studies should be conducted, including the hybrid descendants of transgenic crops, to thoroughly assess the ecological impact.

Independent scientists warn that products engineered using RNAi might silence the genes or otherwise affect the gene expression of non-target organisms. In this case, non-target organisms include humans who eat the apples.

                                                                                    Researchers from Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences and Hamadan University of Medical Sciences in Iran used rats in a laboratory to study “the effects of virgin coconut oil (VCO) on inflammasome and oxidative stress in an Alzheimer’s model.”

                                                                                    Their study found that the rats fed VCO “improved hippocampus histological changes, reduced Aβ plaques and phosphorylated Tau.” (Phosphorylated Tau is a biological marker for Alzheimer’s Disease.)

                                                                                    They concluded that virgin coconut oil “showed potential neuroprotective effects.”

                                                                                      In a study just published in Journal of Applied Microbiology, Australian researchers studied 22 natural products and their ability to inhibit the spore cycle of Clostridium difficile.

                                                                                      Clostridium difficile (C. diff) is mostly incubated in hospital settings, is antibiotic resistant, and very contagious. It can create life-threatening inflammation of the colon.

                                                                                      The Australian researchers tested 22 natural products in vitro, and found that three of them “showed inhibitory effects on sporulation of C. difficile.

                                                                                      Effects on sporulation, determined using microscopy and a conventional spore recovery assay, showed that fresh onion bulb extract (6.3% v v-1 ) and coconut oil (8% v v-1 ) inhibited sporulation in all four isolates by 66-86% and 51-88%, respectively, compared to untreated controls.

                                                                                      Fresh ginger rhizome extract (25% v v-1 ) was also inhibitory, although to a lesser extent.”

                                                                                        I warm it up in tea, use it in cooking.

                                                                                        I have had Stage 4 – Endometriosis, low grade sinus infections, internal parasites, super dry skin, cold sores, colds, fevers, ear aches, migraines, dental infections and spider veins, since my early teens.

                                                                                        Over the past six months, my low grade sinus infections have 100% cleared.

                                                                                        Migraines, are gone.

                                                                                        The biggest (visible) change is the 30 pound weight loss, without exercise or struggle.

                                                                                          This pathogenic bacterium also goes by C. difficile or C. diff, or even just CDF.

                                                                                          As we enter the age of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which are usually developed in hospitals, causing increased death by medicine (iatrogenic), an awareness of the medicinal aspects of coconut oil has arisen through anecdotal experiences and several independent studies indicating coconut oil could be a solution for failing pharmaceutical antibiotics.

                                                                                          A new study shows that the primary fatty acid chain in coconut oil, lauric acid, is effective in inhibiting antibiotic resistant Clostridium difficile.

                                                                                          A combination in vitro and in vivo study was performed by researchers in Taiwan during 2017 and published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology in January 2018 with the title: Lauric Acid Is an Inhibitor of Clostridium difficile Growth in Vitro and Reduces Inflammation in a Mouse Infection Model.

                                                                                          In a mouse infection model, lauric acid consumption decreased CDF-induced colon inflammation and diarrhea, supporting the hypothesis that lauric acid is a potential compound for CDF treatment.”

                                                                                            As is to be expected, much of the research published in peer-reviewed journals showing that coconut oil enhances heart health in recent years has been conducted outside the U.S., in tropical cultures where coconuts grow. These countries are finding out for themselves that they have been misled by U.S. policy that condemns their native diets which includes coconuts and coconut oil.

                                                                                            This current study conducted in Nigeria looked at the pathogenic role of cadmium (Cd) and its exposure in the induction of dyslipidemia implicated in the development and increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases, and explored whether polyphenolics isolated from virgin coconut oil (VCO) could prevent Cd-induced dyslipidemia.

                                                                                            The researchers concluded:

Mainstream medicine offers little or nothing toward resolving candida or yeast infections that have been internalized. Although mostly written about and publicized by women for women, it occurs in both men and women.

                                                                                              Candida yeast colonies are known to sequester pollutants, heavy metals, and even cancers that develop into tumors. Controversial Italian oncologist, Dr. Tulio Simoncini, even declared that cancer is yeast.

                                                                                              However, others maintain the candida yeast is simply an environmental symbiotic support for cancer.

                                                                                              Perhaps over 40 million Americans suffer from various candida ailments that are discomforting precursors to worsening health. Many who are afflicted are not that aware that candida is the source of their problems.

                                                                                              If it gets into the blood and spreads throughout the body it can become debilitating and possibly life-threatening candidosis or candidiasis.

                                                                                              There is good research showing that coconut oil can kill Candida yeast and help prevent Candida infections.

Now those regions feature races among dog sled teams. Dog team sleds are handled by one person, known as a musher.

                                                                                                Dog sledding races range from “sprints” of 12 miles to the grueling 1,000 mile Alaskan Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. These long distance dogs need an easy to digest high density nutrient food supplement to assist their needs.

                                                                                                Jim Blair, an ethical musher, mushing teacher, and owner of Eden Mountain Lodge in Vermont, feeds his dogs a tablespoon of coconut oil daily and has noticed great results in their performance and overall health!

                                                                                                One of Jim’s concerns for his dogs was their paws. Pulling a heavy sled at running speeds with other dogs in the snow and ice is hard on their paws. Their paws collect ice and get skinned up, becoming too tender to run on as well as leading to potential infections.

                                                                                                Jim became dissatisfied with using zinc oxide salves externally on the dogs’ paws. Dogs licking zinc oxide creams off their paws can harm them and they would become ill. He also thought it would be better if their paws didn’t become skinned up and inflamed in the first place.

Jim is now spreading the news of how coconut oil improves dogs’ stamina running through snow and ice while also protecting their paws from painful inflammation.

                                                                                                Jim’s ethically run dog sledding teams have been winning dog sledding races in Quebec’s Sled Dog Club competitions recently, and he’s spreading the word to other sled dog owners and mushers about coconut oil.

                                                                                                  Big Pharma's Continued Failure to Develop an Effective Alzheimer's Drug: Are Alzheimer's Vaccines Next?

Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical industry’s continued effort at finding drugs to ameliorate Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s have been a complete failure.

                                                                                                  There’s too much potential profit in the baby-boomer-turning-seniors market for them to stop; Big Pharma’s boom with cholesterol-lowering statin drugs proved that. There are still way too many who have put their faith in modern mainstream medicine, especially among baby boomers.

                                                                                                  The next blockbuster drug revenue with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s may be with a new Alzheimer vaccine, since vaccines introduced into the market do not need to be effective, and drug companies cannot be sued for any damages resulting from vaccines.

                                                                                                    You’ll find information and demonstrations of oil pulling for oral and dental health mostly on internet websites and YouTube channels.

One study looked at the effect of virgin coconut oil when supplemented in a diet high in consumption of heated vegetable oils, and how virgin coconut oil protected the liver and kidneys, and the other study looked at how virgin coconut oil can reverse the free radical damage done by cancer chemotherapy drugs.

                                                                                                      Virgin coconut oil, depending on how it is processed, is much higher in antioxidants than refined mass-produced coconut oils.

                                                                                                      It is not surprising that scientists and researchers in Africa are exploring the benefits of coconut oil, which is native to many tropical African countries, after being deceived for many years by western thinking that coconut oil is harmful due to it being a highly saturated fat.

                                                                                                        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.

                                                                                                              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.

                                                                                                              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.”

                                                                                                                  It was the day before Christmas Eve, and as I drove to a city where I was to meet my sons for lunch, it was hard to find a parking spot, as so many people were out and about on the last shopping day before Christmas.

                                                                                                                  Everyone seemed to be in a good mood in this upscale downtown area where I was meeting my sons for lunch. Many were dressed in their holiday best, and there were families everyone; children giddy with glee as they undoubtedly were looking forward to opening presents soon.

                                                                                                                  Since I had to park quite far away from the restaurant where I was to meet my sons, I had a few blocks to walk.

                                                                                                                  At one corner, a woman who was sitting down by herself and talking caught my eye for just a moment. She was on the other side of the street, so I did not get a close look at her.

                                                                                                                  “Why is she talking when she is all alone?,” I quickly thought, but I was late for lunch and I pushed the thought to the back of my mind thinking “she probably has an earbud on and is talking on the phone to someone.”

                                                                                                                  Later, as we were finishing up our lunch on a table that was outside in front of the restaurant (the restaurant was very busy, and the only table available was outdoors as it was quite cold out), a woman walked by that caught my eye.

                                                                                                                  She was not neat – she was dirty, carrying a backpack, smoking a small stub of a cigarette that I guessed someone had discarded, and had multiple layers of clothing and jackets on, well worn and dirty. I later learned she was in her mid 40s, but she looked older than that.

                                                                                                                  She noticed me looking at her, and said to me: “God bless you! Jesus has redeemed me, and God is the God of second chances.”

                                                                                                                  I replied: “Amen! He certainly is the God of second chances. God bless you too.”

                                                                                                                  We began a short conversation, and I was waiting for and expecting the imminent request for money – but it never came.

                                                                                                                  • 1280px-Woundedknee1891

                                                                                                                    Today is a holiday of “Thanksgiving” for many people in the United States.

                                                                                                                    However, I think it is important to understand that this is not a day of Thanksgiving for many people, but a day of mourning.

                                                                                                                    Dr. Gary Kohl has reminded us that Native Americans are not fond of Thanksgiving. Here is the text of a plaque that overlooks Plymouth Rock, the site where Puritans first landed on Native American soil that explains why Thanksgiving has only negative connotations for non-whites:

                                                                                                                    “Since 1970, Native Americans have gathered at noon on Cole’s Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US Thanksgiving holiday.

                                                                                                                    Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and other European settlers.

                                                                                                                    To them, Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of their people, the theft of their lands, and the relentless assault on their culture.

                                                                                                                    Participants in a National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today.”

                                                                                                                    If you are fortunate enough to be able to spend Thanksgiving with family members, you truly do have something to be thankful about.

                                                                                                                    But for multitudes in the United States today, holidays like Thanksgiving are simply grim reminders of crimes committed against them that destroyed their families.

                                                                                                                    It is very easy to look at the condition of our culture today, to see the injustice and abuses occurring on a daily basis, and lose hope.

                                                                                                                    Why should one be thankful in the face of terrible injustice, where evil flourishes with seemingly no end in sight, and where it appears that there is no way to fight the corruption that is now the norm?

                                                                                                                    Yet, there is still reason to be thankful…

                                                                                                                      Anniversaries are dates etched into history. Most of them are celebrated, because the reason we remember them is that they bring back pleasant memories. These are dates such as birth dates, dates of marriage, etc.

                                                                                                                      Some anniversaries are dates in history that are painful, and not worth celebrating.

                                                                                                                      Yet every day is significant for one reason or another, and even in the midst of tragedy or pain, good can come of it.

                                                                                                                      Today, October 28th, is a date in my past that I have never celebrated, and have seldom even mentioned to others. Yet it is a date in my past that is now known by well over a million people, because I memorialized it (without mentioning the specific date) in my personal testimony, How I Found Peace with God.

                                                                                                                      It is the most important truth I have to communicate to the world, and I have linked to it from all my websites the past 17 plus years, and today it is read hundreds of times every day.

                                                                                                                      It is the day in 1977 where I tried to end my life, by first overdosing on drugs, and then after being unsuccessful in doing that, by driving my car into a light pole along the side of a road at 85 mph.

                                                                                                                      40 years ago on this date I though I had control over my life, and that it was mine to end.

                                                                                                                      It was not.

He handed it back to me, and told me I was not done yet. In fact, I was just beginning, and he made it very clear that he had a plan and purpose for my life.

                                                                                                                        Now, very alarmingly, the United Network for Organ Sharing seems to be opening the door to letting those planning to commit assisted suicide become living organ donors before taking the lethal pills. From its proposed changes to the ethics of living organ donation to allow the terminally ill to participate:

                                                                                                                        “We recommend that individuals with certain fatal diseases be allowed to donate their organs prior to an assisted suicide, but only in those U.S. states where physician assisted suicide is legal and individuals meet the criteria for physician assisted suicide.”
