A family farm in rural Michigan may be shut down by a Government Entity who has passed a law stating that the heritage breed of hogs they are raising are a threat to neighboring croplands.

A Pox on the CDC’s Vaccination Agenda: The Rise of Herpes Zoster (Shingles)

Despite the largely politically- and economically-motivated immunization agenda of the CDC, there is a growing body of clinical research establishing that vaccination does not effectively 'improve upon' or 'replace' natural immunity in the way that the masses have been made to assume; to the contrary, there are now hundreds of diseases that have been linked to commonly administered childhood and adult vaccines; and when we say "linked" we don't mean anecdotally, but in the biomedical literature itself. It is therefore no surprise nor secret that the chickenpox vaccine has failed to live up to its promises. Even the CDC's Manual for the Surveillance of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases admits that "As vaccination rates have increased, the majority of varicella cases now occur among vaccinated persons." Wouldn't an effective chickenpox vaccine result in the majority of varicella cases occurring in non-vaccinated persons?

What the Science Says About Intermittent Fasting

It's long been known that calorie restriction can increase the lifespan of certain animals. More recent research suggests that intermittent fasting can provide the same health benefits as constant calorie restriction, which may be helpful for those who cannot successfully reduce their everyday calorie intake. Both intermittent fasting and continuous calorie restriction have been shown to produce weight loss and improve metabolic disease risk markers. However, intermittent fasting tends to be slightly more effective for reducing insulin resistance.

Labeling Kids ADHD—Are We Dumbing Down our Innovators of Tomorrow with Drugs?

Nearly one in five American high school students has been diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, ADHD, and most are subsequently put on medication to treat this "disorder". What are the long-term effects of these drugs, not only on their health, but on the world's future? It is quite likely that in our effort to "normalize" our children, we are in fact destroying the next generation of American leaders and innovators.

10 Natural Substances That May Help Cure Type 1 Diabetes

Could the long-sought after cure for type 1 diabetes be as close as your kitchen cupboard? An accumulating body of scientific research appears to point in exactly that direction. Peer-reviewed and published research now indicates that plant compounds, including many found within commonly consumed foods, are capable of stimulating beta cell regeneration within the pancreas, and as a result may be potentially provide a cure.

Homeschooling Growing Seven Times Faster than Public School Enrollment – Will Government Restrict It?

As government becomes more and more intrusive into how they believe parents should raise their children, many families are choosing to educate their children at home at an increasing rate. Health Impact News has reported many stories of places across the country that are refusing school attendance based on mandatory vaccines, or stories of local government officials, such as "child protection services", forcibly entering into homes and removing children by force for simply not following their prescribed ideas for medical care. But will the government move to restrict parents from educating their children at home? A recent case where the State Department decided to prosecute and deport a German homeschool family that had fled Germany and their Nazi-era prohibition against homeschooling to seek asylum in the U.S. may give us some clues regarding current attitudes in U.S. government towards homeschoolers in America.
