    Is Beer a Good Detox Beverage to Remove Aluminum?

    There have been two recent animal studies in Spain indicating that beer is capable of removing aluminum from brain cells, allowing the brain to heal from its toxicity and inflammation. The most recent study used non-alcoholic beer, and the earlier one used beer with alcohol.

    Both types of beer, mostly due to their antioxidant hops content and silica from silicic acid used in the brewing process, have been observed leaching aluminum from aluminum nitrate induced into lab rats. Aluminum that gets into brain tissue creates all sorts of neurological ills.

    Silica binds with aluminum to neutralize its toxicity and escort it out of the body through urine. Cucumbers and the herb horsetail are high in silica that doesn’t penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Beer contains the silicic acid which does.

    But there is a serious caveat for using beer to eliminate aluminum from the brain that will be discussed in this article.

      Autophagy and Intermittent Fasting: Removing Waste from the Body and Cellular Regeneration for Better Health

      Autophagy is essentially an intra-cellular survival system of removing waste and malformed cellular components from the liquids within animal and human cells. This phenomenon was noticed a half-century ago in animals but soon forgotten.

      Recently, Japanese cell biologist, Yoshinori Ohsumi, researched autophagy more thoroughly to discover its value for humans, leading to how it can be stimulated and controlled for weight loss and other even more important health considerations disclosed in this article.

      Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2016 for his autophagy discoveries.

      The word itself is derived from Greek and means self-eating. It’s an enzymatic degradation process that serves to remove faulty cellular particles and reorganize them better for better health, immunity, metabolism, and anti-aging.

      Autophagy that’s not interrupted or inhibited by poor dietary habits can induce better metabolism for greater overall energy, increase natural HGH (human growth hormone) production, resolve obesity, create insulin management, reverse pre-diabetes, and protect against cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

        Psychedelic Mushrooms to Cure Cocaine Addiction?

        A group of researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) are enrolling volunteers for a clinical trial that could set precedence for using psilocybin, a psychedelic compound extracted from “magic mushrooms,” to pry the obsessive desire for cocaine away from addicts.

        Unlike pharmaceutical industry drugs that turn out to be trading one potentially dangerous drug for another, psilocybin is not a replacement drug at all. It’s not something taken daily nor should it be abused recreationally.

        Often, a serious spiritual event or profound life-changing insight from the addict, not from firm external pressures or forced abstinence, is what it takes for a cocaine addict to effectively break the bondage to that addiction.

        In this century, psychologists, MD psychiatrists, and others have observed psilocybin’s ability to induce those events without extended counseling, shown in clinical studies by Johns Hopkins, Imperial College London, New York University, University of California-San Francisco, Yale, and now UAB.

        • Cannabis and Hemp Gaining Legal Acceptance More Rapidly This Year

          Cannabis Legal Updates: Legalization of Industrial Hemp Passes Senate

          The biggest surprise in 2018 for news on the cannabis plant, is that seemingly out of nowhere, there is now a push for legalizing industrial hemp nationally. It has actually been passed in the Senate, but not as a stand-alone bill.

          Industrial hemp is known for its dense, strong fiber content that has many applications, such as making paper, cloth, rope, biodegradable plastics, and even strong, non-toxic building materials with their own innate insulation. The ramifications of its use for types of materials mentioned are more ecologically-sound.

          It’s also an agricultural asset. It’s a hardy cash crop that can be planted and harvested twice in moderate climates. It can be used by organic and conventional farmers as a rotating crop that helps enrich the soil as it requires no synthetic fertilizers.

          This is great news for farmers and advocates of using hemp for environmentally-sound consumer and building products, as well as CBD. It will create hemp independence from foreign hemp sources, which includes Canada and other nations. Currently, it is legal to import industrial hemp products, but illegal to grow it.

            Study: Ozone Therapy Cures Severe and Life Threatening Autoimmune Disease

            I’m really happy to let you know that a very interesting case report and review of mine has just been published in a highly indexed peer review journal. It’s entitled “Remission of aggressive autoimmune disease (dermatomyositis) with removal of infective jaw pathology and ozone therapy: review and case report.”

            This paper details a man with severe and life threatening autoimmune disease unresponsive to 4 toxic immunosuppressive drugs, including massive doses of prednisone.

            I evaluated him differently than conventional doctors would do. His disease, “dermatomyositis” is a description only, telling you it involves inflammation of the skin and muscles. Conventional medicine stops there and treats with powerful and possibly crippling drugs. The integrative doctor looks for causes. I found causes in his mouth/jaw: hidden and asymptomatic infection. Find the cause and the patient can be relieved of disease without a lifetime, and life shortening concoction of poisonous drugs.

            This is an interesting case report and review of the dental connection to disease, and ozone therapy as a modulator of inflammation. His immunosuppressive drugs were taking him down. Ozone therapy kept him actually productive and working despite his life threatening disease process. Please look at the photos of this patient before and after. Extremely powerful visual story.

              A study published June 15, 2018, goes beyond anecdotal experiences or theories that indicate vitamin D offers immune boosting protection against minor diseases such as colds, flues, and other respiratory diseases. It also offers protection against cancer.

              There have been other studies demonstrating vitamin D’s ability to protect against different cancers in the past. This latest study focused on breast cancer, which afflicts women more than any other cancer.

              The bulk of its focus centered on what serum levels of vitamin D did the most to prevent breast cancer.

                FREE Candida Online Summit - How to Control this “Opportunistic” Fungus to Regain Your Health

                Candida is a naturally occurring, yet “opportunistic” fungus.

                With the right conditions, there’s no limit to where it will spread and, when rampant, it can cause intense sugar cravings, brain fog, bloating, depression, anxiety, digestive issues, low energy or worse… chronic diseases!

                Even though candida is an important part of your digestive process, if unchecked, it can cause serious damage to your health. Certain lifestyle choices and/or illness can deplete the “good” bacteria in your body to create room for candida growth.

                Unfortunately, it can also be extremely difficult to test for and diagnose — that’s why we’ve created this important summit.

                      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.

                        Social workers told a Texas mother that Monday was her last visit with her daughter. Aniya Blu Vasquez was medically kidnapped from her family after she became ill following a medical error in which her pediatrician injected her with the Gardasil 9 vaccine intended for her older brother. Aniya was just 4 months old at the time.

                        A Texas court decided last month that the parental rights of her mother, Anita Vasquez, should be terminated, devastating the family and supporters alike.

                        However, their story is not over.

                        In a quirk of legalities, Anita Vasquez filed a Declaration of Recision of Signature/Contracts before the court was able to file the entry of judgement on the termination of parental rights.

                        As a result, there will be another hearing on Monday, July 23, 2018, at the Victoria County Courthouse at 9 a.m.

                        She says that there is substantial new evidence in her case that was not considered by the court. Anita asserts that the very basis upon which CPS seized custody of Aniya was fraudulent, and CPS knew it all along.

                        Concerned citizens are rallying around the family that they believe is suffering a grave injustice.

                          Gardasil Vaccine Legal Victory: Canada Federal Court Rules to Release Clinical Trial Data to American Researcher

                          CBC News and the British Medical Journal (BMJ) are reporting that Professor Peter Doshi has won a major legal victory against pharmaceutical companies trying to hide clinical trial data from the public due to “confidential agreements” for 5 pharmaceutical products.

                          Doshi sued Health Canada to release clinical trial data submitted to Health Canada by the manufacturers of the HPV vaccines Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix, and the anti-viral flu medications, Tamiflu and Relenza.

                          A Canadian Federal Court judge ordered Health Canada to release the pharmaceutical clinical trial data, undercutting the Canadian government’s attempts to keep the information confidential.

                          As far as I can determine, this landmark court ruling out of Canada has been completely censored in the U.S. corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media.

                          This appears to be a brilliant legal strategy by Doshi and his attorneys, since they had little to no chance of obtaining this clinical trial data from any court in the U.S., where pharmaceutical companies enjoy legal immunity from most lawsuits.

                          The importance of receiving this data, particularly on Merck’s Gardasil vaccine, cannot be overstated.

                          As we have reported many times here at Health Impact News, the entire medical approval process to bring the HPV vaccine into the U.S. market is full of scandals and cover-ups, which has resulted in the injuries and deaths of many young people, particularly young women aged 12 to 26, many of whom can no longer bear children due to the vaccine making them infertile.

                          “I hope my case sets a precedent and allows researchers, clinicians, and the public easy access to clinical trial data,” Doshi reportedly stated in an email to CBC News.

                          “Regulators shouldn’t have a monopoly on judging the risks and benefits of medicines or hinder others from doing the same via confidentiality agreements.”

                            Attorney: Elder "Protective Services" is a Racketeering Enterprise Medically Kidnapping Seniors

                            More than 30 years ago, throughout the United States, state governments created agencies known as “elder protective services.”

                            As seen by such designated titles, these agencies are made to appear as though state governments are helpful resources for citizens.

                            However, nothing could be further from the truth.

                            These so-called protective agencies are, in fact, wolves in sheep’s clothing that I can attest to from not only my direct personal experiences, but also from years of research.

                            Upon years of my reviewing and obtaining voluminous court documentation throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts—particularly, in my professional experience as an attorney, there is no doubt, whatsoever, that public officials have been operating a racketeering enterprise through the probate and family courts, feeding off our most vulnerable citizens, the elderly.

                            These public officials do so through physical and financial exploitation of the elderly.

                            In 2015, I filed a federal civil action in the District Court of Massachusetts providing overwhelming and irrefutable documentation that state elder protective agencies is one cog of many in a long-embedded governmental money laundering and embezzlement enterprise.

                                Could things start to be turning around for the Rivenburg family? At stake in the most recent court hearing was the termination of parental rights for the parents of Annalise Rivenburg, the big sister of deceased Baby Steffen.

                                While their family and many supporters around the world waited and prayed, Steffen Rivenburg, Sr., and Patricia Tornberg walked into Judge Wayne Shelton’s Clarksville, Tennessee, courtroom on Monday, July 9, 2018.

                                They had been in that courtroom many times, and every time they felt like were walking into a lions den, facing attorneys, social workers, doctors, Guardian ad Litems (GALs), and a judge, all of whom seemed determined to tear them and their family apart.

                                This time, however, it was different. Grandmother Lisa Rivenburg, spokesperson for the family, told Health Impact News:

                                “It was epic!

                                The judge LISTENED to the kids [Steffen, Sr., and Patricia] this time!”

                                This is the first time since their children were taken from them by the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) on February 2, 2017, that the family has felt that they were listened to in court.

                                They don’t know why things changed, but they see this as a huge answer to prayer.

                                Annalise is still not home with her family, but her parents’ parental rights have not been severed. For now she remains in the foster home that she was placed in by DCS, but she is not up for adoption.

                                  Arizona Veterans Group Calls Out Local Law Enforcement and Mayor for Covering Up Pedophile Trafficking

                                  Last month (June 2018) Health Impact News reported on the story out of Tuscon, Arizona, where a group called Veterans on Patrol uncovered a child sex camp that was believed to be used by cartels crossing the border from Mexico to traffick children in the U.S.

                                  Local law enforcement refused to acknowledge that the camp was used in child sex trafficking, and just when it looked like they were going to remove the members of the group from continuing their investigations, something dramatically changed, and the veteran group, now joined by hundreds of volunteers coming in from all over the world, was allowed to continue their patrols in the area.

                                  Their patrols have continued the past few weeks, and the group is claiming that they have shut down some of the human trafficking, as well as drug trafficking, as a result of their efforts.

                                  The leader of the group, Lewis Arthur, who once enjoyed a great local reputation for his work with getting veterans off of the streets, has come under increasing pressure and criticism from local law enforcement and the corporate-sponsored media.

                                  He recently vented some of his frustration on a Facebook Live-stream broadcast, where he accused local law enforcement and the Tucson mayor, Jonathan Rothschild, for covering up known pedophile groups operating within Tucson, Arizona.

                                  Throughout his broadcast, Arthur makes is clear that he is being driven by a mission he believes has been given to them from God, and his trust that God will protect him from those seeking to destroy him and his credibility.

                                  He believes that their work is revealing the truth about human trafficking coming across the border, and its link to pedophile groups operating out of Tucson and elsewhere which is being covered up by bad law enforcement officers and political figures.

                                      By the time they found a doctor who figured it out, CPS had already decided to take their baby from them.

                                      It is the kind of nightmare scenario that could happen to any family. Doctors may not always be able to figure out why a child isn’t gaining weight, but as soon as the baby is diagnosed with failure to thrive, Child Protective Services is often quick to blame the parents and seize the child.

                                      Unlike most families, Jennifer Guskin and Scott McFalls know all too well what kinds of horrors possibly face children taken by CPS and put into foster care. Jennifer was adopted as a baby herself, and she has recently gone public with horrific details about her childhood and how she became a victim of child sex trafficking and experimentation.

                                      Jennifer and Scott recognize the danger that their baby is in, and that thought terrifies them.

                                        What is so tragic, and has this island nation in such an uproar, is that the parents of the second child who died had reportedly already learned about the first infant’s death a couple hours earlier and declined to have their child receive the same MMR vaccine. The mother reports that the nurse administered the vaccine against her consent, leading to the child’s immediate death upon receiving the vaccine.

                                          Should Women be Given the Tdap Vaccine During Pregnancy?

                                          A great debate is raging about whether we should have mandatory vaccination to prevent childhood illnesses. Mandatory vaccination would do away with a religious, ethical, or scientific disapproval of a vaccine.

                                          A study from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine reported that the Tdap vaccination during pregnancy reduced the occurrence of infantile pertussis. This study is a perfect example of why we need informed consent on the safety and efficacy of vaccines and why we should not have government mandates about vaccines.

                                          The researchers looked at infants admitted to the hospital with pertussis and compared two groups of pregnant women: one group who received the Tdap and the other group that did not.

                                          This study showed that the Tdap vaccine is 0.02% effective at preventing hospitalization from pertussis. In other words, the vaccine will not benefit 99.98% who take it.

                                          The Tdap vaccine contains a known neurotoxin (aluminum) and carcinogen (formadehyde). There are ZERO safety studies shown that it is safe to inject either substance into a human much less a pregnant human.

                                          When I was trained, I was taught to be very careful when prescribing any therapy for a pregnant woman. I was always taught to err on the side of caution.

                                          I think that was sage advice.

                                          Tdap for pregnant women? Give women the appropriate information and let them decide.

                                            Why Probiotics May Often Not Be Enough for Healthy Microbiomes: The Necessity of Prebiotics Like Resistant Starch

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

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

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

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

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

                                              Why Coconut Oil, or Any Saturated Fat, Cannot Raise Cholesterol Levels (LDL levels)

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

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

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

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

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

                                                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.

                                                      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.

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?

                                                                For a number of years now, researchers have warned we are headed toward a post-antibiotic world — a world in which infections that used to be easily treatable become death sentences as they can no longer be touched by available drugs.

                                                                As reported by NPR July 2, 2018:

                                                                “A woman in Nevada dies from a bacterial infection that was resistant to 26 different antibiotics. A U.K. patient contracts a case of multidrug-resistant gonorrhea never seen before. A typhoid superbug kills hundreds in Pakistan. These stories from recent years — and many others — raise fears about the possibility of a post-antibiotic world.”

                                                                Despite strong warnings, about 80 percent of the antibiotics sold in the U.S. are still given to livestock — not to treat acute infections but as a preventive measure, and as a growth promoter. This routine low-dose administration is a most dangerous practice, as it primes bacteria for resistance.

                                                                    The decision by U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco followed years of litigation and weeks of hearings about the controversial science surrounding the safety of the chemical glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s top-selling weed-killer.

                                                                    • Veterinarian Doctor Wearing Protective Suit

                                                                      Antibiotic-resistant disease is a major health threat around the globe, such that illnesses once easily treatable with the drugs are now becoming deadly.

                                                                      The cause of the antibiotic-resistance epidemic is quite straightforward: overuse of antibiotics.

                                                                      “Resistant bacteria are more common in settings where antibiotics are frequently used: health care settings, the community and food animal production,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states — and the latter category is of utmost importance.

                                                                      The majority of antibiotics in the U.S. aren’t used in health care settings for humans; they’re used in industrial agriculture, primarily in low, steady doses for purposes of “disease prevention” (which also has the “side effect” of growth promotion, making the animals get bigger, faster).

                                                                      Despite this, exactly how and in what numbers antibiotics are used on U.S farms is a mystery, in large part because, as Wired put it, the data “isn’t considered an obligation owed to public health … it’s a political football.”

                                                                      • Florida-sink-hole

                                                                        Most health conscious and environmentally concerned people understand the problems facing us today due to modern agricultural and biotech practices.

                                                                        In the U.S. today, less than 1% of our population is producing the food for the country. When the U.S. was founded, about 90% of the population was involved in agriculture, and by the time Abraham Lincoln became president, that number still stood at around 50% of the population producing food for the country.

                                                                        Today, traditional small-scale sustainable farming is rare and has been replaced by biotech and the mass production of food. GMO food, along with the contamination of the food supply by pesticides and herbicides, is fairly well known today.

                                                                        But there is one aspect of modern-day agriculture that often slips under the radar of public awareness that is as ecologically harmful to human health or even worse.

                                                                        It is the worldwide phosphate fertilizer industry. And it is especially out of control here in America, in China, and in other regions to lesser extents.

                                                                        Florida’s phosphate industries supply 75 percent of U.S. fertilizers. Now the world’s largest phosphate mining and manufacturing company, Mosaic Fertilizer, is looking to grab more land in Florida with the usual carrot of economic development, put simply, more local jobs.

                                                                        Those who know the history and methods of this industry are trying to convince ignorant citizens and county commissioners that the risks far outweigh the benefits promised, even if actually fulfilled.

                                                                        Mosaic Fertilizer has already settled a $2 billion lawsuit to clean up 60 billion pounds of hazardous waste in Florida and Louisiana – one of the largest federal lawsuits ever settled.

                                                                        Now it wants to grab even more land in Florida, seeking 18,000 acres for strip mining.

                                                                          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.

                                                                              The method, a climate-adapted version of Push-Pull, is being spearheaded by the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe), a multinational government-funded organisation that supports poverty alleviation and food security.

                                                                                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.”

                                                                                • Protest Against Monsanto, Zagreb, Croatia

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                    Another study has been published here in 2018 looking at the positive effects of virgin coconut oil for Alzheimer’s disease.

                                                                                    This is the third peer-reviewed study we have covered so far in 2018 looking at the effects of coconut oil on Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

                                                                                    This latest study is titled “Possible prophylactic anti-excitotoxic and anti-oxidant effects of virgin coconut oil on aluminium chloride-induced Alzheimer’s in rat models.”

                                                                                    It was published July 13, 2018, in the “Journal of Integrative Neuroscience.” The study was conducted by researchers from the Faculty of Medicine at King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia. This year’s previous studies on AD and coconut oil were also conducted outside of the U.S. (Japan and Iran.)

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

                                                                                    From the study abstract:

                                                                                    “Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects an estimated 5.4 million people worldwide.

                                                                                    However, there remains no curative treatment for the condition.

                                                                                    Aβ and hyperphosphorylated tau accumulation are the main hallmarks of the disease; they interfere with glutamate uptake and mediate glutamate excitotoxicity, oxidative stress, inflammation and neurodegeneration.

                                                                                    As virgin coconut oil (VCO) is well-known as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory natural compound, the purpose of the present study was to assess the possible prophylactic effect of VCO on aluminium chloride (AlCl3)- induced AD in rat.”

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

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

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

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

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

                                                                                        Now, a second peer-reviewed study has been published here in 2018 looking at the mechanisms of how coconut oil positively affects Alzheimer’s patients.

                                                                                        Published in the journal, Neurochemical Research, researchers in Japan examined the effects of lauric acid, the most predominant medium chain fatty acid found in coconut oil, on activated microglia in mice.

                                                                                        The title of the study is Lauric Acid Alleviates Neuroinflammatory Responses by Activated Microglia: Involvement of the GPR40-Dependent Pathway.

                                                                                          This is believed to be the first peer-reviewed study to examine coconut oil’s effect on Alzheimer’s Disease.

                                                                                            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.

                                                                                                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.

                                                                                                The researchers noted in their full study text:

                                                                                                “As the primary FA [fatty acid] of coconut oil is lauric acid (45–53%), it is of great interest to utilize coconut oil as a source of lauric acid.

                                                                                                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:

                                                                                                    Candida overgrowth or yeast infections have been on the rise over the past few decades. 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.

                                                                                                      Once upon a time dog sledding was a common mode of rural overland travel and transporting goods among the colder regions of North America from upper Midwest states and New England throughout Canada and into Alaska. 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 found that using coconut oil internally with his dogs solved that external problem. 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.

                                                                                                        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.

The new political scientist was to abandon the supposedly played out mines of political theory.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                                                                                              Benga was not alone.

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

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

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

                                                                                                                What Does it Mean to be a “Christian"?

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

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

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

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

                                                                                                                  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…

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.

                                                                                                                      I learned through experience that day, that God controlled my life, not me. 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.

                                                                                                                      • Jack-Kevorkian

                                                                                                                        Is Human Organ Harvesting Behind Push to Legalize "Assisted Suicides"?

                                                                                                                        My first anti-assisted suicide article, in 1993, warned that the practice would lead to conjoining organ donation with euthanasia “as a plumb to society.” That is happening now in Netherlands and Belgium — including people with mental illnesses, no less.

                                                                                                                        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.”

MIT Technology Review is now reporting an attempt in the U.S. to use CRISPR to genetically modify a human embryo.
