Disease Outbreaks Among Fully Vaccinated Students Show Insanity Behind Mandatory Vaccination Laws

A federal judge in New York earlier this month (March, 2019) denied the parents of 42 healthy, non-vaccinated students, the right to attend the Green Meadow Waldorf School simply because they were not vaccinated for measles, even though no cases of measles had been reported at the school. During the same ...

      Dispelling the Myth that LDL Cholesterol is "Bad"

      Independently-sourced research challenges the idea that LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is the “bad cholesterol,” and causes heart disease.

      However, the theory that LDL is “bad” persists in the mainstream media and with Big Pharma, mainly because they would lose billions of dollars in drugs and treatments to admit the theory lacks merit.

      The hypothesis of saturated fat creating artery-clogging cholesterol as the source of heart disease should be considered dead and incapable of resuscitating, based on the scientific evidence.

      But one still sees and hears fearful statements about lowering cholesterol and avoiding heart disease, mostly on mainstream media but even all too often on internet alternative media sources.

      Current research is showing LDL is not dangerous and it’s not an accurate marker for pending heart disease.

        FDA Wants to Regulate Human Poop and Let Only Big Pharma Sell it as a Super Probiotic Drug for Profit

        The FDA is on the verge of deciding the future of fecal microbiota transplants (FMT), a promising new treatment that harnesses the power of the gut microbiome to fight illness.

        The agency is poised to regulate FMT as new drugs, which means patients will be paying thousands of dollars for human poop.

        This is yet another example of why medicine is so expensive in this country: the FDA takes affordable, natural treatments—as natural and humble as human feces!—and gifts them to Big Pharma to reap mega-profits.

        Left on its own, we know that the FDA will once again serve Big Pharma by classifying FMT as a new drug. To develop a new drug costs billions of dollars, which can only be recouped through market exclusivity (read: FDA-granted monopoly).

        What can now be had for free will then cost tens of thousands of dollars. The only way we can prevent it is to respond in force to tell the FDA to keep its hands off our poop!

          4th Child Develops Cancer after California Elementary School Cell Tower Installed

          Four students and three teachers have reportedly been diagnosed with cancer at an elementary school in Ripon, California, after a cell tower was installed directly on the school grounds about 3 years ago.

          After the 4th child was diagnosed with cancer earlier this month (March, 2019), some parents reportedly pulled their students from school, and about 200 parents of the school’s 400 students gathered at a City Council meeting last week.

          They want the cell tower removed from the school.

          The school district reportedly has a 25-year lease contract with Sprint, and receives $2000.00 a month to have the cell tower located on school property.

          School board president Kit Oase has said that tests done on the tower found it was operating normally within safety standards.

          Many parents disagree.

          Monica Ferrulli is one of those parents who has done her own research.

          Her son Mason was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 10. She says a doctor has confirmed that the cause of his cancer is “environmental.”

          Parents are claiming that the testing done by the school utilized a company (Hammett) hired by Sprint, the owner of the cell tower.

          So the parents reportedly hired their own independent company, Windheim, to conduct testing, and they provided handouts at the City Council meeting that is reportedly the result of the testing. They also claim that the school website did not allow them to publish their findings

              New Studies Provide Hope for Using Cannabis to Treat Brain Injuries and Diseases

              In 1974, the Ford administration began bogus testing on monkeys as the science “proving” marijuana destroys brain cells. This helped support the “Reefer Madness” mania originated by the 1938 movie of the same name. It was great for the “Drug War” and “just say no” campaign.

              Since then, international studies have proven otherwise. But they were not publicized or used by politicians as much as the bogus study.

              The exponentially rising movement of states legalizing medical marijuana has provided us the anecdotal evidence that, contrary to the scare tactics used to discourage marijuana, the opposite is true.

              These anecdotal stories of cannabis healing, coupled with the expanding allowance of medical marijuana, have opened funding sources for “official” studies on cannabis and the brain.

              This time, studies will be focused on determining the highest and best use of cannabis strains instead of “proving” brain danger to justify banning the plant.

              These new studies are confirming cannabis as a healing agent for brain diseases and injuries, improving brain health.

                Toxic Mold Whistleblower Fears for Her Life: "I Exposed One of the Biggest Frauds in America and it Continues to be Hidden"

                This is the second half of the story about whistle-blower Sharon Kramer, mold warrior, courageous truth teller, and compassionate friend to those who have been made sick by moldy buildings.

                It is the story of how a corrupt judicial system in California has allegedly complied with those she is trying to expose, by putting her in jail and threatening to commit her to a psych ward in order to silence her.

                “It has been a very heavy burden for me to carry for 14 years to know that I exposed one of the biggest frauds in America and it continues to be hidden.

                I’m not kidding when I say that I live my life in fear every day until the criminal case fixing in San Diego that keeps the fraud going is brought to public light.

                The courts are the people who are supposed to be protecting the public from crimes and injustice. Instead, they are the people who are perpetrating crimes to keep injustice from being seen.

                I honestly think that my being framed for libel was part of an intentional plan to commit mass insurance fraud throughout the United States and it is intentionally purposed to cause people who are sick and need help to not be able to get it. People have died from this.”

                  This is the story of Sharon Kramer, mold warrior, courageous truth teller, and compassionate friend to those who have been made sick by moldy buildings.

                  It is a story about how scientists were hired to prepare two reports designed to prove that long-term indoor mold exposure does not harm human health, and how judicial corruption has protected that faulty science from being discredited.

                  It is the story of how the legal system has been used as a weapon to try to silence Sharon Kramer for telling the truth about judicial corruption in California and for talking about the practice of toxicology experts who testify in mold trials without disclosing the fact that they wrote the position papers they use to support their testimony.

                    FDA Wants to Shut Down Adult Stem Cell Therapy as its Healing Successes are Experienced Around the World

                    Adult stem cell therapy is enjoying widespread success around the world, but if the FDA gets its way, it may soon be banned here in the U.S.

                    There have been nearly 12,000 adult stem cell therapies performed in the United States with an over 90 percent success healing rate for mostly joint and spinal conditions. It involves using the patient’s own stem cells, so no patent-able drugs are involved.

                    They are targeting the most influential stem cell clinician in the U.S., Dr. Kristin Comella in Florida.

                    The FDA has allegedly offered to drop their lawsuit if Dr. Comella signs an agreement to stop doing adult stem cell therapy and no longer promote it.

                    She refused. She said she has witnessed people leave their wheelchairs for good from this therapy. The trial is set for a Federal Court hearing beginning June 2019, in Miami, Florida.

                    If Dr. Comella loses this court case, adult stem cell therapy in the USA may be forced out of the country and only be available to those who can afford medical tourism.

                      Doctors Exposing Cholesterol Myth Accused of Murder in British Press for Questioning Statin Drugs

                      There’s a media war going on in the UK involving the issue of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

                      The British Daily Mail’s health editor, Barney Calman, labeled two medical doctors and a PhD nutritionist as “statin deniers” for their efforts in educating the public and debunking the cholesterol-heart disease causation dogma while exposing statin drug dangers.

                      The two doctors are Dr. Malcolm Kendrick and Dr. Aseem Malhotra. The nutritionist is Zoe Harcombe, PhD.

                      The Daily Mail article is blaming their “propaganda” as convincing people to stop taking cholesterol-lowering drugs which they claim are leading more people to suffer heart attacks as a result.

                      Since this is another example of corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media presenting only the pharmaceutical position on their own products and seeking to censor anyone who opposes them, we are publishing the responses from those accused of murder for exposing the dangers of statin drugs, as well as questioning the “science” used for the most widely prescribed class of drugs in the world.

                        Disease Outbreaks Among Fully Vaccinated Students Show Insanity Behind Mandatory Vaccination Laws

                        A federal judge in New York earlier this month (March, 2019) denied the parents of 42 healthy, non-vaccinated students, the right to attend the Green Meadow Waldorf School simply because they were not vaccinated for measles, even though no cases of measles had been reported at the school.

                        During the same time period school officials across the country in Los Angeles sent home 50 fully vaccinated sick students at Harvard-Westlake School with the contagious whooping cough.

                        These two schools on opposite sides of the country clearly illustrate the absurdity of vaccination policy currently being espoused in the United Sates: fully healthy non-vaccinated students are denied an education, while sick, fully vaccinated students are allowed an education but then sent home because they are too sick to stay in school.

                        As state legislators across the U.S. are considering new laws to take away parental exemptions to childhood vaccines, the very premise being put forth to deny children a right to education is the “greater good” of public health, with the assumption that unvaccinated students present a public health crisis because of the belief that vaccines prevent diseases.

                        However, the facts and science behind vaccines clearly show that this belief is not valid.

                          His comments were recently reported by Adriana Belmonte at Yahoo Finance.

                          Dr. Raeford Brown, a pediatric anesthesia specialist at the UK Kentucky Children’s Hospital and chair of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Committee on Analgesics and Anesthetics, has been openly critical of big pharma and the lack of proper oversight from the FDA.

                          Despite many politicians, particularly declared presidential candidates, beginning to speak out against big pharma, Brown does not think that anything will come out of it ‘because Congress is owned by pharma.'”

                          The article documents how pharmaceutical companies are making significant financial contributions to politicians and political candidates. Statistics are based on OpenSecrets, a website operated by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks money in U.S. politics.

                          “The pharmaceutical industry pours millions of dollars into the legislative branch every single year,” he told Yahoo Finance. “In 2016, they put $100 million into the elections. That’s a ton of money.”

                          Dr. Brown went on to say:

                          “I’m really much more concerned because Congress is supposed to have oversight for the FDA. If the FDA isn’t going to hold pharma accountable, and Congress is getting paid to not hold pharma accountable, then it really doesn’t matter who the president is because it’s really about Congress.”

                            There is ample case law in federal and supreme courts to prove this.

                              Medical Doctor to Maine Legislators: Diseases Persist Due to Vaccine Failure - Not Unvaccinated

                              My name is Dr. Meryl Nass. I am here today to oppose LD798 and support LD987.

                              I am a physician in Ellsworth, Maine.

                              I graduated from MIT and the University of Mississippi School of Medicine.

                              In 2010, I was the chair of a commission established by you, the legislature, “to protect the lives and health of members of the Maine National Guard.”

                              I have testified to 6 Congressional committees, primarily on anthrax vaccine and Gulf War Syndrome, and the permanent injuries suffered by service-members who received military vaccines of questionable quality.

                              There is no crisis of infectious diseases caused by lack of vaccinations, here in Maine or in the rest of the United States.

                              The rates of vaccine preventable diseases are approximately the same as always. I have attached the official statistics, so please check me on this!

                              According to the CDC, effective vaccine exemption rates in Maine are not higher than they have been, and they are consistently better than the US average.

                              The truth, not widely known, is that immunocompromised children are not catching diseases from their unvaccinated classmates, and they are not dying. Look at the numbers.

                              The diseases that persist and have been in the news remain a challenge, simply because the vaccines have a high failure rate–not because of the unvaccinated.

                                Investigation Finds Kentucky CPS Illegally Taking Children from Homes with Pre-signed Judge's Orders

                                Kentucky social workers are failing to have courts properly scrutinize and approve the drastic step of taking some children from their homes, relying instead on blank removal orders with pre-signed judges’ signatures, which is illegal according to several attorneys and judges.

                                The allegations, which involve cases of purported parental abuse or neglect, have prompted numerous complaints to judges and state officials.

                                They revolve specifically around the state Cabinet for Health and Family Services workers using pre-signed emergency custody court orders to remove children on weekends and after the courthouse has closed for the day.

                                “The system that is currently set up allows for the social workers to call an on-call judge on the phone and then fill out the order themselves, a blank order with a judge’s signature on it,” attorney Karen Faulkner said in an interview.

                                “Children are being illegally taken from their home without judges’ proper authority.”

                                  The children had been kicked out of school by state officials and were truant. The mothers and fathers were holding letters threatening them with imprisonment or fines of $50 a day for failing to show proof their children had gotten a chickenpox or hepatitis B shot.

                                  Confused, angry and frightened, but mostly resigned, they were working Moms and Dads trudging toward the courthouse on a Saturday morning to face a judge ordering them to vaccinate their children or go to jail.

                                  Patrolling the scene was an armed SWAT team of policemen with dogs. We were being shown the power of the State wielded by guards armed with dogs and guns.

                                  When a government policy is unjust and people resist, the last resort is always a show of force. Use of fear, intimidation, discrimination and punishment of dissenting minorities is the hallmark of authoritarian governments and so is censorship and propaganda.

                                    We need your help to defeat a terrible bill, HB 213 sponsored by Representative Ralph Massullo, M.D, which expands the intrusive Florida SHOTS vaccine tracking system.

                                    HB 213 needs to be opposed because:

                                    1) HB 213 requires reporting by all vaccine administrators including tracking in the registry of refusal to participate rather than leaving reporting optional as in current statute.

                                    2) HB 213 expands the registry from a childhood registry into an adult vaccine tracking registry by requiring the reporting of adult college and university students aged 19-23 or requiring tracking refusal to participate in the registry.

                                    3) HB 213 exposes private vaccination and personal identifying records to collection and abuse by allowing automated data to be uploaded from “existing automated systems,” and making all the records in the registry “available” to permitted users and deleting current statute which requires the direct transfer from the registry to a user as needed.

                                    4) HB 213 requires tracking of everyone from birth to 23 years old!

                                    Do not be fooled by anyone claiming children or college students can opt-out of being tracked under this bill.

                                    This is simply not true.

                                    If HB 213 passes, every single person from birth to 23 will be tracked in this intrusive Florida vaccine enforcement and surveillance system either with their vaccination records or marked as a vaccine tracking refuser! There is no opting out of some kind of tracking in this system.

                                      He goes on to explain that CPS workers need a court order to remove children from their home, but routinely do not have court orders, and he wants to start fining them and putting them in jail when they take children out of homes without court orders.

                                      Prior to interviewing Representative Garcia, James White interviewed Debbie Westlake from Butte, Montana, as an example of the kind of corruption in child welfare services in Montana.

                                      He writes:

                                      “In summary, Debbie had some medical issues and needed to be hospitalized for a couple weeks.

                                      CPS took over and protected her son during her hospital stay. The visitation specialist who returned Debbie’s son, Robert, made advances on Debbie of a sexual nature, which she rebuked and then reported.

                                      The worker was subsequently arrested for 4 counts of incest and was sentenced to 80 years in prison.

                                      After another 5 hour hospital stay, CPS took Robert and he has not been home since.”

                                        Enduring Mockery, Insults, and Death Threats, Pediatric NICU Nurse Comes Forward to Talk About Her Own Child's Vaccine Injuries

                                        It’s been too long I have stayed silent. It’s time to share my story. To speak the truth in love. My adult career as a Registered Nurse has been centered on the NICU, PICU, & Pediatric populations. Growing up I had all my vaccines.

                                        ​Fast forward to nursing school. I remember watching a short video, the CDC schedule & the importance of our patients receiving the full schedule. The denial of the autism link – and that’s it. We did not study ingredients, we were not told about vaccine injury/death, or how to report to VAERS when an injury occurred.

                                        Upon graduating and securing my first job in the NICU, I thought nothing of the injections I pushed into the thighs of my screaming newborn patients, nor of the “poor feeding,” lethargy, high-pitched screams, & breathing abnormalities that would sometimes follow. This was all normalized as common for the short period after vaccines.

                                        I questioned nothing as my own belly grew and grew with my own first child. I was a nurse after all, and this was science.

                                        How different things would be had I stood firm and learned back then what I know now. The toxic load of aluminum, formaldehyde, human and animal tissues, etc and etc, were too much for my son’s neurological system and detoxification system.

                                        He lost his words & eye contact altogether, started flapping, spinning, walking on his toes, horrible GI symptoms, food limiting, had no desire for social interaction, etc.

                                        He was diagnosed with severe autism. And our world was turned upside down.

                                        Us pro-vaxxers & Ex-vaxxers are NOT enemies! We all want the same thing – safety for our babies.

                                        ​Do you know why we are suddenly, and in such great numbers, stepping out of hiding, bearing the mockery, insults, wishes of death on us and our children?? It’s because we can’t afford to remain silent any longer, there is TOO much at stake for ALL of us!

                                          Kaiser Health Blows the Whistle on FDA and Medical Device Fraud

                                          Last year (2018) Netflix produced a documentary about corruption in the medical device industry, which is a 300 BILLION dollar a year industry worldwide.

                                          Industry insiders boast that the medical device industry has more power than Big Pharma, and is more powerful than most governments around the world.

                                          Earlier this month (March, 2019), Kaiser Health News published an investigation into the FDA and their public database that tracks medical device failures.

                                          Their investigation found that the FDA maintains a hidden database that records malfunctions of medical devices that is not available to the public.

                                          Dr. Douglas Kwazneski was helping a Pittsburgh surgeon remove an appendix when something jarring happened. The surgical stapler meant to cut and seal the tissue around the appendix locked up.

                                          Kwazneski later turned to the Food and Drug Administration’s public database that tracks medical device failures and “there was nothing,” he said. Yet when he surveyed leading surgeons on the matter, he discovered that more than two-thirds had experienced a stapler malfunction, or knew a peer who did. Such failures can have deadly consequences.

                                          Kwazneski had no idea the FDA had quietly granted the makers of surgical staplers a special “exemption” allowing them to file reports of malfunctions in a database hidden from doctors and from public view.

                                          “I don’t want to sound overdramatic here, but it seemed like a cover-up,” said Kwazneski.

                                            Study: Diet Sodas Linked to High Risk of Strokes and Heart Disease in Older Women

                                            While zero calorie sodas are promoted to help keep your weight down and be a healthier alternative to sugary soft drinks, you might be surprised to know there have been several studies indicating the weight loss health advantages of diet soda are false.

                                            Also, the adverse health effects are usually not publicized. The soda industry puts a lot of money into mainstream media (MSM) advertising. It’s enough to keep MSM from criticizing that industry.

                                            However, there have been several studies indicating many disease probabilities from artificially sweetened beverages.

                                            Two of the most recent studies link diet sodas to an increase risk of strokes and heart disease, particularly among older women.

                                              How the Coca-Cola Company Influences the CDC to Conceal Health Dangers of Refined Sugars

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

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

                                              The “conversations” in the title of the study were emails the authors were able to obtain.

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

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

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

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

                                                In addition to the wide array of nutrients avocados offer, they contain an anti-cancer compound that is beyond preventative with certain cancers. It’s called Avocatin B, and it has been extracted to undergo trials for targeting certain cancer stem cells.

                                                There are many other health benefits offered by avocados that make it a true superfood.

                                                  A new study links a food processing enzyme known as mTg, microbial transglutaminase, to Celiac disease and intestinal permeability, aka “leaky gut” conditions.

                                                    Health Canada is in the process of revising its food guidelines for 2019. Some inside sources say there is not that much difference with this year’s Canada Health food guidelines than previous years, except that overall it leans more toward a plant-based diet. Its final draft hasn’t been published yet.

                                                    Much like USDA nutritional guidelines, “healthy eating” is defined by avoiding saturated fats and emphasizing grains and carbohydrates.

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

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

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

                                                    We represent a growing number of Canadian physicians and health professionals, called the Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition, who use whole-food nutritional strategies, which often include meat, eggs and dairy, to prevent and often put into remission the burden of chronic non-communicable disease in our patients.

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

                                                      A very recent review on nutritional approaches toward preventing and reversing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) was conducted in Christchurch, New Zealand’s Canterbury University. The results were submitted to the journal Nutrition.

                                                      It’s title: “The ketogenic diet as a potential treatment and prevention strategy for Alzheimer’s disease.”

                                                      After analyzing 33 studies researching AD and other neurological disorders handled with a ketogenic diet and supplementing coconut oil, the University of Canterbury review analysis concluded:

                                                      “In this review, we hypothesize that the ketogenic diet could be an effective treatment and prevention for Alzheimer’s disease, but both ketone production and carbohydrate restriction may be needed to achieve this.”

                                                        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).

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

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.

                                                            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.

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.

                                                                Meanwhile, the evidence for harm caused by glyphosate continues to pile up.

                                                                A study just published in The BMJ links pesticides and herbicides, including the widely used glyphosate, during prenatal and infant exposure to an increased rate of autism. The study was conducted in the Central Valley of California, home to the world’s largest agricultural area.

                                                                  The USDA’s organics program has been taken over by corporate interests; it’s time to fight back.

                                                                  Consumers looking for clean, healthy food have for years turned to foods with the USDA’s organic seal. This seal is understood to mean that the food has been grown in accordance with organic principles—most importantly, that the farming practices promote healthy soil, which in turn produces healthy food.

                                                                  Unfortunately, corporate influence has infected the USDA’s organic program to such an extent that it can be difficult to trust the organic seal.

                                                                  Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) have taken over organic eggs and dairy.

                                                                  According to organic standards, livestock are supposed to have access to the outdoors, fresh air, and sunlight.

                                                                  But these provisions have been interpreted in such a way as to allow CAFOs to confine animals to barns but add “porches”—a roof built over a concrete floor with screens as walls—and still label their livestock as “organic.”

                                                                  This allows CAFOs to continue to raise millions of chickens or livestock on the cheap in cramped, squalid conditions but charge the organic premium.

                                                                  The USDA estimates that half of all organic eggs come from CAFOs.

                                                                      Our federal health and environmental agencies, like the EPA, have failed to protect the environment from glyphosate pollution. The result is many humans are contaminated with glyphosate.

                                                                      Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup’s active ingredient is glyphosate with added chemicals to enhance its ability to penetrate plant tissue. These added chemicals are also toxic, creating a synergistic load beyond glyphosate’s toxicity.

                                                                      Despite Monsanto’s assertions the Roundup is bound by topsoil and does not threaten groundwater, independent scientific research has discovered it seeps into groundwater and nearby waterways. Its penetrating capacity has also been discovered to penetrate animal and human cells.

                                                                      Some municipalities have recently responded to glyphosate’s water pollution by banning the use of herbicides containing glyphosate.

                                                                        A high-stakes federal trial kicked off in California involving a man diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma who is seeking compensation from Monsanto/Bayer because, he claims, its weedkiller Roundup caused his cancer.

                                                                        Even before the trial started, the judge’s behaviour was already making waves, prompting Robert Howard to write [an] article, warning that Judge Vincent Chhabria was “already hindering testimony”.

                                                                        Howard was one of the jurors who back in August of last year, at the culmination of the first case brought against Monsanto – a state rather than a federal case – ordered the company to pay $289 million in damages for having acted with “malice” in hiding the dangers of Roundup.

                                                                        Howard, however, probably never guessed the degree to which Judge Chhabria would hinder testimony once the actual trial got underway, leading to the Guardian headline Monsanto: judge threatens to ‘shut down’ cancer patient’s lawyer.

                                                                          Most of us take it for granted that the food and drinks we buy from the store are not putting our health at risk.

                                                                          However, new research from public health groups and scientists from the past several years indicates that food and drinks are contaminated with glyphosate, the main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup.

                                                                          This is a potential health problem because in 2015 the World Health Organization found that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen, and in 2017, the state of California agreed.

                                                                          To explore how much Roundup we’re drinking, U.S. PIRG tested beer and wine for glyphosate/Roundup.

                                                                          As we’ve confirmed in this study, Roundup is found in beer and wine (including organic).

                                                                          • Oats Cereal For A Cereal Background With A Oval Blank Wood Plaqu

                                                                            In testing done by Friends of the Earth (FOE), 100 percent of oat cereal samples tested positive for residues of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide.

                                                                              Recent headlines about a Brucella outbreak in 19 states blamed raw milk dairies.

                                                                              But one raw milk dairy in Pennsylvania has sent out an email update to its customers explaining that the Brucella outbreak is actually “an antibiotic resistant, modified live strain of Brucella that veterinarians give to cows as a vaccination.” The farm in this brucellosis case was not even licensed or permitted for raw milk sales.

                                                                              Raw milk producers that are allowed to produce raw milk legally in some states (many states do not allow it all), must pass much more stringent sanitary inspections than even commercial dairies.

                                                                              As we have reported for many years here at Health Impact News, conscientious dairy farmers who choose to market a high-end product directly to the consumer are a threat to the subsidized commercial dairy industry.

                                                                              These brave farmers have endured a lot of persecution from government regulatory bodies who try to shut them down, and deny consumers access to a healthier, and safer, dairy product.

                                                                              Here is the letter from Pennsylvania farmer Edwin Shank setting the record straight on this most recent attack against raw milk dairy farmers.

Observers have called the scale of this fraud “jaw dropping” and likely the largest case of its kind involving US farmers.

                                                                                The level of deception in the organic industry has reached epidemic proportions: a USDA study found that 40% of all organic food sold in the US tested positive for prohibited pesticides.

                                                                                This is an outrage, but the USDA shows no signs of deviating from business as usual.

                                                                                    A new study out of Japan and published in the European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology shows how switching the dietary oil of chow fed to mice from soybean oil to coconut oil reduced skin inflammation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                                                                      That’s no longer the case, as a new study has recently determined what goes on biochemically within the skin’s cellular and genetic composition when using virgin coconut oil on one’s skin.

                                                                                      This report, In vitro anti-inflammatory and skin protective properties of Virgin coconut oil, was published by the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine in January, 2019.

A recent study in India compared cooking with peanut oil to cooking with coconut oil to determine the relative health benefits for weight management, heart disease, and diabetes.

                                                                                          The researchers used nine healthy male volunteers with normal body mass index or BMI levels to undergo eight weeks of consuming a normally balanced diet cooked with coconut oil, followed by a six-week “washout” period, then another eight weeks of the same diet cooked with peanut oil.

                                                                                          The study report is called Coconut oil consumption improves fat-free mass, plasma HDL-cholesterol and insulin sensitivity in healthy men with normal BMI compared to peanut oil.

The results were submitted to the journal Nutrition.

                                                                                            It’s title: “The ketogenic diet as a potential treatment and prevention strategy for Alzheimer’s disease.”

Energy from fat has usually been associated with stored fat within the body as a reserve for when carbohydrate energy runs out.

                                                                                              Now a 2018 Russian study using cross-country skiers as human subjects determined medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), normally contained in only a few saturated fats, supplied immediate energy during high demand athletic endeavors.

                                                                                              These fatty acids don’t get stored as fat, but provide sustained energy. This truth can benefit all of us, not just athletes.

                                                                                                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 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.

                                                                                                  The researchers used refined carbohydrates to create adiposity in their experimental mice. 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.

                                                                                                    She refused to have a proctectomy (to surgically remove a portion of her colon along with her anus) as recommended by her doctors, and requested a natural approach instead.

                                                                                                    Therefore, her doctors started daily local administration of three and half ounces of prewarmed coconut oil as a rectal enema.

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.

Only the Catholic Church has more members in the U.S.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                                                                                            Christmas is an especially hard day for families who have been separated by Child Protective Services and family courts. How can Christmas possibly be “merry” when that which means the most – the children, or in some cases the elderly parents – are not there? The laughter and wonder of Christmas is missing, and their hearts have been shattered.

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

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

                                                                                                            • first-baptist-church-hammond-indiana-sex-abuse-300x211

                                                                                                              Earlier this year Health Impact News investigative reporter John P. Thomas began a series of articles on child sex trafficking within the Roman Catholic Church.

                                                                                                              Other Christians who are not part of the Catholic Church might be tempted to believe that such horrible crimes could never happen in their particular church or denomination.

                                                                                                              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.

                                                                                                                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.

                                                                                                                      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?

                                                                                                                        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 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.

                                                                                                                          Were Nazis More Tolerant of Down Syndrome than Some European Countries Today?

                                                                                                                          Richard Dawkins lashed out at Pope Francis for the latter’s comparing modern eugenic efforts to Nazi precedents that sought to “create a pure race.” Dawkins fumed, “Abortion to avoid birth defects is not about eugenics. 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.
