    China Boasts of Restricting Millions from Public Travel Due to Low Social Credit Scores

    The Chinese government operated English news site, Global Times, tweeted recently that the government had restricted 2.56 million people from purchasing plane tickets, and 90,000 people from buying high-speed rail tickets during the month of July, due to too low of a social credit score.

    China’s new social credit system will be fully operational by 2020, but it is apparently already in place across China.

    Like a person’s financial credit score, a social credit score can move up or down based on your social behavior. In recent years, China has increasingly monitored its citizens activities through social media, and extensive facial recognition software.

    “Bad behavior” can lower an individual’s social credit score, and “good behavior” can increase it.

    Reported examples of “bad behavior” include: playing too many video games, spreading “fake news,” drinking too much, walking your dog without a leash, smoking where you are not supposed to, or simply being too noisy on a train or bus.

    Besides banning you from riding an airplane or train, other ways China can restrict its citizens for having too low of a social credit score include: throttling your internet speeds, banning you — or your kids — from the best schools, stopping you getting the best jobs, keeping you out of the best hotels, getting your dog taken away, or being publicly named as a bad citizen.

    Could something like this be implemented in the United States? Most of the major corporate-media outlets in the U.S. have reported about China’s new social credit system as something negative, but I did find one exception. The Washington Post published an article last year titled: “The West may be wrong about China’s social credit system.”

    The Washington Post is now owned by Jeff Bezos, founder and owner of Amazon.com.

    Amazon.com is also selling facial recognition software in the U.S. to law enforcement and governments.

      The 5G Crisis: Awareness & Accountability Summit is Online and FREE

      You may have heard of 5G, it stands for fifth-generation cellular wireless.

      In a February 2019 US Senate hearing, the wireless industry was forced to admit they have no safety studies on 5G, and don’t plan to do any.

      Meanwhile, there are thousands of independent studies concluding that wireless radiation causes biological harm.

      Despite this, the wireless industry is working with government to deploy 5G — it’s a global, for-profit, human experiment… without our consent.

      What does it mean? Millions of “small” cell towers will be added to every block (which is a serious privacy concern). Each tower emitting radiation at levels known to cause cancer, sterility, DNA damage and other harm… especially to our children, who are most at risk.

      • Glyphosate use by year

        How to Remove Glyphosate from the Body and Restore Digestive Health

        Even if we try to be extra careful, we are all exposed to glyphosate every day. This toxic agricultural poison is in 80% of food. It is in many sources of water and it can even be in the air we breathe.

        Glyphosate is also in organic food. Even though organic food growers are not allowed to use glyphosate, it is still found in organic food. It gets into organic food through aerial spray drift, dust carried in the wind from farm to farm, rain and agricultural runoff from adjacent farms.

        Sometimes the levels of glyphosate in organic food are nearly as high as non-organic food.

        In 2014, the total amount of glyphosate used in the United States was 276 million pounds or 0.87 lbs. per person. [5] That’s almost one pound of poison per person per year.

        We no longer need to feel like helpless victims when it comes to glyphosate exposure. The two-part strategy that is outlined here enables us to restore our health when glyphosate is tearing us down and setting us up for any number of chronic modern illnesses.

          How Google Threatens Your Children

          Google is without a doubt the largest and clearest monopoly on the planet. It dominates online searches and advertising, which in and of itself leads to automatic bias. As noted by Google’s founders Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page in their 1998 paper, “The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine,”

          “… [W]e expect that advertising funded search engines will be inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of consumers.”

          Google has also infiltrated many other areas of our day-to-day lives, having acquired dozens of other companies4 you might not realize belong to Google or its parent company, Alphabet.

          Among the most well-known are YouTube, the largest video platform on the web, and Android, one of the most popular operating systems worldwide. Google also has significant influence over urban development, health care and childhood education.

          However, for all its conveniences, Google poses a very real threat to all these children. As noted in a 2017 article in The New York Times — which details the strategic moves that allowed Google to take over the American classroom — “schools may be giving Google more than they are getting: generations of future customers.”

          By the time these children have grown into adulthood, every single preference, thought, belief and proclivity will be known about them, which will make them extremely vulnerable to manipulation, not only through targeted advertising but also through what might be called customized censorship or targeted social engineering — in essence, the strategy of tailoring the information any given individual can see in order to shape and mold their prejudices and ideas.

            Breaking the Gaming Addiction: One Doctor Stepped in and Helped His Son by Smashing his Xbox

            It’s not every day your son smiles while beating up his Xbox.

            Theo literally enjoyed it.

            We tried many ways to regulate gaming time. It was always a source of arguments.

            Finally, I unplugged it yesterday after thinking about doing it for over a year.

            Not only did I unplug it, I broke it.

            My son didn’t know I busted it. He saw me take it out of his room.

            Later he asked me if I broke it. I said yes.

            Honestly, he seemed relieved. He wasn’t upset at all.

              People who love mushrooms, particularly the reishi variety (Ganoderma lucidum), will be interested in knowing that not only do they possess certain properties that fight inflammation, but many age-related conditions as well.

              According to a 2017 study, reishi mushrooms have been found to prevent lung cancer, one of the most common types in both men and women.

              A 2018 study found that an extract of the reishi mushroom, noted as “a medicinal mushroom with anticancer activity, acts on breast cancer stem cells in vitro.”

                Wikipedia is Ruled by Skeptics with Biased Agendas: Wrong on 90% of Medical Advice

                You may think Wikipedia — originally funded with revenue from soft-core pornography — is the best thing since Cliff Notes, with quick and easy access to all the facts and news you ever needed to know. Some believe Wikipedia is even better than Encyclopedia Britannica; indeed, Wikipedia’s founders intended it to be a replacement for it. But is Wikipedia really a trustworthy source?

                Wikipedia is not a reliable source.

                Interestingly enough, while Wikipedia has become the world’s most powerful thought leader — controlling a vast amount of internet information and being used to determine the credibility of experts across most fields — Wikipedia itself warns it is NOT a reliable source. It states:

                “Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Wikipedia can be edited by anyone at any time. This means that any information it contains at any particular time could be vandalism, a work in progress, or just plain wrong.

                Biographies of living persons, subjects that happen to be in the news, and politically or culturally contentious topics are especially vulnerable to these issues. Edits on Wikipedia that are in error may eventually be fixed.

                However, because Wikipedia is a volunteer run project, it cannot monitor every contribution all of the time. There are many errors that remain unnoticed for days, weeks, months, or even years. Therefore, Wikipedia should not be considered a definitive source in and of itself.”

                Despite this blatant admission of unreliability, Wikipedia is the go-to site for Google quality raters to assess the expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness of an author or website. There’s also evidence showing Wikipedia is edited by people with a very specific agenda, and anyone who tries to clarify or clear up inaccuracies on the site is simply blocked.

                  Autism is Avoidable, Treatable, and Curable - The Chlorine Dioxide Protocol Part 2

                  Kerri Rivera made the following remarks about the Chlorine Dioxide Protocol during her 2019 presentation at AutismOne. She stated:

                  “Autism is avoidable, treatable, and curable.

                  I have seen the faces of the children. I have met them. I have spoken with them and with the mothers, the parents, and the families who got their lives back. They are back – they are totally back from autism – and I want to share that with you.

                  The CD protocol is tried and true. This is the tenth year for this protocol.

                  I appreciate you keeping an open mind for recovering yourself and your children from illness, especially autism.

                  For those of you who want the information about the CD protocol and are ready for it, here it is. I am happy to help you and I wish you all the best in your journey.”

                  The protocol brings about healing by killing pathogens, resolving systemic inflammation, and revitalizing damaged immune system functioning. It addresses candida, bacteria, parasites, viruses, and heavy metals.

                  The CD protocol is not just for autism. It also addresses conditions such as Asperger’s, PANDAS, PANS, PITAND, ADD and ADHD, and PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder-not otherwise specified) which is often another label for autism. These related conditions can exist side by side with autism, overlap with it, or be separate from it.

                  If 557 people have already lost their autistic diagnosis through the use of the CD protocol, then how many more must be set free from this modern illness before the scientific and medical communities will wake up and recognize the truth that autism can be treated and cured?

                    Google and Wikipedia Team Together To Suppress Alternative Health Information

                    Ask anyone on the street prior to 1990 what the term “search engine” meant, and you would probably get a shrug of the shoulders and a guess, like searching for an automobile replacement engine or something.

                    Today, people use the Internet to search for information about 6 billion times a day, easily accessing far more data than all of today’s mainstream news outlets put together.

                    And while in the early days of the Internet one had many choices of tools to use to search for data, today the name “Google” is synonymous with “search engine”, and is even used as a verb: “Go Google it.”

                    Over 90% of all Internet searches are controlled by Google today.

                    If Google was simply a software program that searched through all the massive amounts of data in blazing fast speed to produce the results that YOU wanted, this would not be such a big issue. It would just mean they are able to deliver results faster and more comprehensively than other search engines, leading more people to prefer using them over other search engines.

                    And that’s probably the way it was in the beginning.

                    But today, Google has decided to be the Police of the Internet, and they have decided that they know better what data you should be viewing than you do.

                    And they have apparently teamed together with another source of online data, Wikipedia, which poses as a neutral source for information, but is anything but “neutral.”

                    Together, these two Internet giants are doing everything they can to serve big corporate interests, particularly when it comes to alternative health.

                    Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of Mercola.com, one of the longest running websites on the Internet publishing life-saving information on natural treatments, and exposing corruption in the medical industry, just recently lost 99% of his search engine traffic because Google and Wikipedia apparently do not believe the public has a right to use their search tools to find the kind of information he publishes.

                        Plan for Global Healthcare for All: Cheap Drugs Developed with "Virtual Clinical Trials" Revealed in Letter to Japanese Prime Minister

                        Here is a frightening letter that was discovered online today. It was addressed to the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and was sent from the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA).

                        The letter was signed by the IFPMA Executive Committee which includes the CEOs of the USA’s Eli Lilly ($24 billion in revenue in 2018), Japan’s Daiichi Sankyo ($8 billion in revenue in 2018), Belgium’s UCB ($27 billion in revenue in 2018) and France’s Sanofi ($42 billion in revenue in 2018).

                        The letter was endorsed by the 30 or so IFPMA members that attended the Tokyo meeting with Abe that followed. The representatives (mostly the CEOs) of the global pharmaceutical corporations pictured are listed at the bottom of the letter.

                        One of the alarming goals clearly proposed by the IFPMA and clearly stated in the letter to Prime Minister Abe is to make use of public medical information databases, IoT technology and virtual clinical trials “to reduce drug development time and costs and improve the probability of success”.

                        Big Pharma shows that the future implementation of a plethora of dangerous, poorly evaluated drugs and vaccines that will no longer make use of actual randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, long-term clinical trials – and just use the more efficient, more cost-effective “virtual,” computer-based “studies.” Brave New World.

                          The State of New York recently passed legislation removing the religious exemption to mandatory vaccines for children.

                          Attorneys Michael H. Sussman and Robert F. Kennedy have filed a lawsuit to repeal the law, as 26,000 families in New York wait to see if their children can attend school.

                          As of now, the only way to get an exemption to mandatory vaccines is to have a medical doctor write a medical exemption.

                          Last week, the New York Department of Health published “Emergency Regulations” to “Prevent Medical Exemptions.”

                          So now, unelected bureaucrats will determine if doctors are qualified or not to write medical exemptions.

                          By having the Department of Health declare an “emergency” and issue an order without passing legislation, the entire democratic process is bypassed, resulting in medical tyranny.

                            Oregon Mother Jailed for Recommending Non-Chemo Cancer Therapies for Daughter

                            Christina Dixon of Oregon is the mother of a now 13-year-old daughter with liver cancer.

                            When Christina’s daughter was 11, she was rushed to Oregon Health and Science University due to excruciating pain, which was diagnosed as Undifferentiated Embryonal Sarcoma, a rare kind of liver cancer that happens mainly in children.

                            Many of us know and have seen the effects chemotherapy has on a body, let alone an 11-year-old body.

                            According to oncologists at Oregon Health and Science University, this right is not up to the patient, or even the parent when it come to questioning, which this mother didn’t do or even consider other methods of treatment.

                            It’s apparent this mother was to sit idly by as she watched her daughter agonize for 2 years with no results.

                            Christina started using alternative treatments which include vitamins, herbs and pure CBD oil to treat her daughter’s cancer once she was release from OHSU in June of 2018.

                            Records from Clackamas County juvenile court indicate a dependency petition was filed on March 26, 2019 claiming:

                            “The mother has neglected child’s medical needs, which creates a risk of harm to the child.”

                            Christina and her daughter were located in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 13, 2019, after Nevada police received a tip from the FBI and sheriff’s office that the two were staying in a hotel in Las Vegas.

                            The daughter, now 13, was taken in “protective” custody of Nevada police and later transferred back to Oregon.

                            This past week, Christina was arrested on charges of “first-degree custodial interference and first-degree criminal mistreatment.”

                            There is a DHS hearing on August 19, 2019 at the Oregon City Court House at 2 p.m. and supporters are asking the public to show up in support of Christine and Kylee.

                              In early May 2019, Politico Magazine published an article written by three of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s relatives, criticizing his advocacy for safe vaccines. After numerous requests, Politico magazine has refused to publish his response. 

                              So he has published it himself:

                              Three of my Kennedy relatives recently published an article criticizing my advocacy for safe vaccines.

                              I love my family and sympathize with their anxieties when I call out government officials for corruption. The Kennedys have a long, close, and continuing relationship with public health agencies so it is understandably difficult for us to believe that powerful regulators would lie about vaccines. “All issues are simple,” the saw goes, “until you study them.”

                              I’ve arrived at my skepticism after 15 years spent researching and litigating this issue. I have watched financial conflicts and institutional self-interest transform key sectors of our public health bureaucracies into appendages of the very pharmaceutical companies that Congress charged them to regulate.

                              My uncle and my father argued that in a free and open society, the response to difficult questions should never be to shut down debate. What we need is science, not censorship.

                              I am not anti-vax. I am pro-safety and pro-science. I want robust, transparent safety studies and independent regulators. These do not seem like the kind of radical demands that should divide our party or our families. As Americans and Kennedys, we ought to be able to have a civil, science-based debate about these legitimate concerns.

                                Pedophiles Continue to be Licensed as Foster Parents in the U.S. to Meet the Demand for Child Sex Slaves

                                It has been well-documented and frequently reported here at Health Impact News that the United States Foster Care system is the nation’s #1 pipeline for child sex trafficking.

                                Attorney Michael Dolce from the law-firm Cohen Milstein, who speaks from experience from representing children abused in foster care, wrote an opinion piece published by Newsweek in 2018 stating that the nation’s foster care system is set up to sexually traffic children.

                                Dolce said:

                                “Here’s the ugly truth: most Americans who are victims of sex trafficking come from our nation’s own foster care system. It’s a deeply broken system that leaves thousands vulnerable to pimps as children and grooms them for the illegal sex trade as young adults.

                                We have failed our children by not fixing the systemic failures that have allowed this to happen for decades.”

                                In 2018 an independent candidate running for office in Virginia, Nathan Larson, admitted to being a pedophile. He encouraged other pedophiles to use the foster care system to adopt children as “sex toys.”

                                A recent State Department report on Human Trafficking confirmed that the United States is the top destination in the world for sex trafficking, and Geoff Rogers, co-founder of the United States Institute Against Human Trafficking, stated:

                                “We have a major issue here in the United States. The United States is the No. 1 consumer of sex worldwide. So we are driving the demand as a society.

                                We’re also driving the demand with our own people, with our own kids. So there are tremendous numbers of kids, a multitude of kids that are being sold as sex slaves today in America. These are American kids, American-born, 50 percent to 60 percent of them coming out of the foster care industry.”

                                Here are some recent local news reports of arrests of licensed foster parents accused of sexually abusing children in the past 30 days which is probably only a fraction of the actual number of foster parents sexually trafficking children, and shows that this problem is only getting worse, not better.

                                  A Warning that Cannot be Ignored: Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence

                                  The spate of recent mass shootings has prompted the mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR) to reiterate the urgent need for State and a Federal government investigation into the irrefutable link between psychotropic drugs and violence.

                                  The group is making its report, “Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence and Suicide,” available to legislators which cites 16 studies that show psychotropic drugs create homicidal and suicidal reactions. CCHR has documented at least 78 acts of senseless violence committed over several decades by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs, leaving a wake of 464 deaths and 926 wounded.

                                    What Happened to the California Medical Board's Concerns About SB 276 and Restricting Doctors Who Write Exemptions for Vaccines? Who Changed Their Minds?

                                    During their quarterly meeting on August 8, 2019, The California Medical Board (CMB) surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, voted to support SB276, Senator Richard Pan’s medical exemption bill that places narrow restrictions on doctors’ abilities to write vaccine exemptions for school aged children.

                                    SB276 is not about vaccines, it is a bill regarding the exemption process required to fulfill California’s school vaccine mandate.

                                    The bill, in an unprecedented way, hands over the jurisdiction of reviewing and revoking the medical opinions of physicians from the CMB to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and California Department of Health and Human Services (CHHS).

                                    In May, when the Board previously voted to “Support SB276 in Concept” – the concept being that physicians writing fraudulent medical exemptions should be investigated – CMB Members raised a number of concerns on the bill. These concerns were not addressed by the most recent amendments to SB276, nor were they brought up for discussion at yesterday’s board meeting. So it is surprising that the CMB changed their position to Support SB276.

                                    What (or who) made them change their positions?

                                      n July 10, attorneys Sussman and Kennedy filed a lawsuit in New York State (NYS) Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the legislature’s repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination. Suing on behalf of 55 NYS families who held lawful religious exemptions, Sussman and Kennedy requested that the court enjoin the repeal temporarily, preliminarily and permanently.

                                      The Honorable Denise Hartman, Supreme Court judge, will hear oral argument Wednesday, August 14th. With school only three weeks away, plaintiffs present their case that on June 13, 2019, NYS halted more than fifty years of lawful religious exemptions from vaccination for those with genuine and sincerely-held religious beliefs. The law, which became effective immediately, threw more than 26,000 NYS families into chaos, barring their children from school and daycare.

                                        Idaho Mom Arrested Second Time as Attempts to Silence Her Fail - Meanwhile 16-Year-Old Son Suffers in Foster Care

                                        Kristine McCreery has spent the entirety of 2019 fighting Idaho Child Protective Services for her 16-year-old son, Brandon, over allegations of medical abuse/neglect because of health issues potentially caused by an untreated Celiac condition.

                                        Canyon County Prosecutor Shari Dodge had Kristine arrested Saturday, August 10th, 2019, on felony Injury to Child charges. It was the second time she was arrested on the same charges, as she had posted bond back in June already.

                                        Kristine reports that even the police officers were confused as to why they had just arrested her a second time on the same charge, and they let her go without having to post bond a second time.

                                        Kristine has also now been charged with contempt of court for going public with her story. In reality, she is being held in contempt because MedicalKidnap.com and Fight for Lilly are refusing to remove Dr. Amy Barton’s picture and the St. Luke’s CARES video from the original article.

                                        According to court documents, Judge Courtnie Tucker also filed a written order, dated July 24th, 2019, demanding that the photo and video be removed from the article.

                                        As we mentioned in previous articles regarding this family, neither the website MedicalKidnap.com that contains the photo of Dr. Barton, nor the YouTube account through fight4lilly.org that hosts the CARES video, are within Kristine’s control. 

                                        MedicalKidnap.com and Fight4Lilly.org have their own policies regarding the removal of such things from their websites, and choose to stand upon the rights granted under the First Amendment of Freedom of the Press.

                                        Canyon County Prosecutor Shari Dodge and Judge Courtnie Tucker are publicly funded officials, and the St. Luke’s CARES institution that employs Dr. Amy Barton is a federally funded program – all subject to public scrutiny because they receive public funds.

                                        Kristine says that since she went public, those involved in the case have lost focus of the real issue at hand, the health of sixteen year old Brandon:

                                        “They seem to care more about publicity than my son or his well-being.”

                                        Kristine says Brandon continues to lose weight in foster care, and that his medical needs are not being met by the department. She is greatly concerned about the malabsorption caused by Celiac and a possible lactose intolerance.

                                          Texas Judge Chastises CPS but 4-Year-Old Boy Still Not Returned to Family

                                          On Friday, August 9, a status hearing was held in the Pardo case where the court considered what action steps would have to be taken before Drake could be sent home. Judge Tracy Gray, the same judge who signed the original emergency removal order on June 20, presided over the case. The tone of the hearing was strikingly different than the post-removal July 2 hearing presided over by Judge Michael Chitty, which Senator Bob Hall described as an “egregious injustice.”

                                          Judge Tracy Gray chastised CPS for the ridiculous list of requests included in their report to the court. Judge Gray threw out every item challenged by the family’s attorneys, ordered CPS to “expedite” their efforts to place Drake with family or friends, and to start allowing the family to bring a third party witness to visits with Drake, something CPS has prohibited thus far.

                                          While the hearing was a great success for the family, there is still a long way to go. Judge Gray clearly appeared frustrated by CPS’ brazenly unconstitutional requests (like a court-ordered admission of guilt). This offers a ray of hope that CPS may not be able to continue getting away with their illegal actions.

                                            With the prevalence of conditions associated with dysfunctional energy metabolism, the use of the ketogenic diet and ketone bodies as an efficient energy source has shown a remarkable therapeutic potential for a wide range of disorders, from cognitive health and neurological diseases to cancer and autoimmune issues, all of which have inflammation and/or a form of metabolic dysregulation in common.

                                            In recent years, a significant amount of research done using the high-fat low-carb diet (HFLC) has centered around the neurological and brain-stabilizing benefits of using ketone bodies, rather than glucose, as fuel for the brain. The increasingly affirming results are leading researchers to wonder if burning ketones might lead to, not only a lighter population through the resulting weight loss, but also a happier and more productive one as well.

Maimonides extolled the ‘Excellence’ of broth as both a food and a medicine, causing the golden broth so commonly prepared by Jewish mothers to become colloquially known as “Jewish Penicillin.” From ancient times, when bones were simmered over fires in turtle shells, to modern, fast paced cities, where it is sold by the cup out of high-end specialized restaurants, bone broth has been touted and accepted as both a medicine and a food by layman and physician alike.

                                                  The Reason Big Pharma and Big Food Want You to Think Eggs are Bad - And Why They Are Not

                                                  Ever since the cholesterol theory of heart disease was created during the 1970s and 1980s, eggs have been vilified as a potential threat for not only heart disease, but more recently even diabetes.

                                                  Official institutional warnings of egg consumption continue, even as the cholesterol theory of heart disease is crumbling with the emerging unbiased science proving otherwise.

                                                  The mounting evidence that cholesterol is vital for health and that people with low cholesterol have more health issues and shorter lives than those with high cholesterol is largely ignored when it comes to corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media coverage.

                                                  Diabetes type 2 has become epidemic in cultures that have embraced western processed food diets. There have been some epidemiological surveys that have managed to associate egg consumption with an increased risk of diabetes.

                                                  Those seem to be publicized more than studies that have the different conclusions. Finland has recently shown other conclusions with both a large, unbiased epidemiological study and a follow-up study that analyzed metabolic features among egg eaters.

                                                  Both concluded that those who enjoy eggs in their diet have less risk of diabetes.

                                                    The FDA has removed the last roadblock to genetically engineered (GE) salmon hitting supermarket shelves.

                                                    The GE salmon will have to follow the labeling guidelines spelled out in the GMO labeling law passed by Congress in 2016—meaning that the only indication consumers will have that the salmon is genetically engineered may be a scannable QR code.

                                                    As most consumers don’t use these codes, many may have no clue that they’re buying GE salmon.

                                                    We must support legislation that calls for stronger labeling requirements for GE salmon.

                                                      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.

                                                        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.”

                                                              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.”

In August 2018, jurors ruled Monsanto (which was taken over by Bayer in June 2018) must pay $289 million in damages to DeWayne “Lee” Johnson, a former school groundskeeper who claimed the company’s herbicide Roundup caused his terminal cancer.

                                                                The award was later slashed to $78 million, but it signaled the beginning of a running trend in Roundup cancer lawsuits. The next two verdicts also sided with the plaintiffs, including a $2 billion payout in the third case, which was later slashed to $20 million, from $75 million in punitive damages. Whether or not retailers can be held liable for not warning consumers about this probable carcinogen may soon be determined by the upcoming class-action suits.

                                                                Plaintiff James Weeks filed two proposed class-action lawsuits against Home Depot and Lowes, alleging that the retail outlets did not do their duty to warn consumers about cancer and exposure risks when using glyphosate-based products.

                                                                  The U.S. law firm of Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman added 100+ new documents to the Monsanto Papers on Thursday. The new Monsanto Papers documents are available for review via the Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman website.

                                                                  Prior to, during, and after the first three Monsanto Roundup trials, Baum Hedlund worked to declassify and publish internal Monsanto documents pursuant to the protective orders entered in the cases. The latest batch of Monsanto Papers documents were de-designated on March 1 and July 22.

                                                                  Among other things, the Monsanto Papers show:

                                                                  Monsanto purposefully ghostwrote articles that regulators have been relying on for years.
                                                                  Monsanto orchestrated attacks against the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and its members for concluding glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen.
                                                                  Monsanto hid its own consultant’s conclusions that Roundup causes DNA damage.
                                                                  Monsanto hid data showing Roundup penetrates skin at greater rates than reported to regulators.
                                                                  Monsanto influenced EPA officials to arrive at pro-Roundup conclusions.

                                                                    Lawyers for Jake Bellah were in court Monday in Lake County Superior Court in Lakeport, California arguing that Bellah’s young age and diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) qualified him for “trial preference,” or a speedy trial.

                                                                    Lawyers representing Bellah said the child was exposed to Monsanto’s glyphosate-based herbicide products repeatedly over many years as he played in his family’s yard and around their garden area where his father frequently sprayed the chemicals.

                                                                    Bellah developed B-cell lymphoma and has been hospitalized and treated with chemotherapy and is currently in remission, according to Pedram Esfandiary, one of the family’s attorneys.

                                                                      Starting July 1, any local ordinance that expressly limits or prohibits growing vegetables on one’s own property will be “void and unenforceable.”

The farm raises its animals and other pure foods the way nature intended and we are proud to be entirely chemical, cruelty and GMO-free.

All of the farm’s food is traceable, pure and grown on nutrient dense soil, under traditional time-honored methods.

                                                                          Of the pesticides banned in at least two of these nations, many have been implicated in acute pesticide poisonings in the USA and some are further restricted by individual states.

                                                                          The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has all but abandoned its use of non-voluntary cancellations in recent years, making pesticide cancellation in the USA largely an exercise that requires consent by the regulated industry.

                                                                            Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, and has been linked to cancer. Juries in recent court cases have awarded billions of dollars in damages to cancer victims who were exposed to glyphosate.

                                                                            This most recent report published by Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., senior science advisor, and Alexis Temkin, Ph.D., Toxicologist, at EWG, tested 21 oat-based cereal and snack products, and found all of them had high levels of the toxic glyphosate.

                                                                            EWG is asking the public to sign a petition to have the major food companies remove glyphosate from their products.

                                                                            While this is a noble venture, it is impossible for any company producing products from American grains to remove glyphosate from their products.

                                                                            Companies producing these products do not have a choice to remove glyphosate from their products. It is impossible. Petitioning them to do so will not accomplish anything, because they are powerless to change this.

While world bodies like the World Health Organization say that glyphosate is a “probable carcinogen,” the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains that glyphosate is safe.

                                                                                Let’s not forget, though, that cronyism mars the EPA decision: unsealed court documents showed that a top EPA official (Jess Rowland) promised Monsanto he would quash efforts by the Department of Health to conduct its own review of glyphosate.

                                                                                So much for the federal government protecting the interests of people rather than special interests.

                                                                                  After listening to 17 days of trial testimony, jurors said Monsanto must pay $1 billion to Alberta Pilliod, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma brain cancer in 2015, and another $1 billion to her husband Alva Pilliod, who was diagnosed in 2011 with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that spread from his bones to his pelvis and spine.

                                                                                  The couple, who are both in their 70s, started using Roundup in the 1970s and continued using the herbicide until only a few years ago. The jury also awarded the couple a total of $55 million in damages for past and future medical bills and other losses.

                                                                                  In ordering punitive damages, the jury had to find that Monsanto “engaged in conduct with malice, oppression or fraud committed by one or more officers, directors or managing agents of Monsanto” who were acting on behalf of the company.

                                                                                  Pilliod v. Monsanto is the third Roundup cancer case to go to trial. And it is the third to conclude that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based herbicides can cause cancer and that Monsanto has long known about – and covered up – the risks.

                                                                                      Most of us who have reached maturity take our body’s largest organ at face value, spending a staggering $300 billion on anti-aging globally and approximately $400 million U.S. dollars yearly on over-the counter acne solutions to put on a pretty face.

                                                                                      But for the newest and most vulnerable among us, preterm and full-term infants, healthy skin is critical to their very survival, and here is where researchers think virgin coconut oil may be a major contributor in the fight to lower preterm infant mortality.

                                                                                      Complications arising from preterm births are the leading cause of death globally for children under the age of five, according to the World Health Organization.

                                                                                        With the prevalence of conditions associated with dysfunctional energy metabolism, the use of the ketogenic diet and ketone bodies as an efficient energy source has shown a remarkable therapeutic potential for a wide range of disorders, from cognitive health and neurological diseases to cancer and autoimmune issues, all of which have inflammation and/or a form of metabolic dysregulation in common.

                                                                                        In recent years, a significant amount of research done using the high-fat low-carb diet (HFLC) has centered around the neurological and brain-stabilizing benefits of using ketone bodies, rather than glucose, as fuel for the brain. The increasingly affirming results are leading researchers to wonder if burning ketones might lead to, not only a lighter population through the resulting weight loss, but also a happier and more productive one as well.

                                                                                          Recently we covered a study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition which compared peanut oil consumption with coconut oil consumption among healthy men in India, where those who consumed coconut oil had better health outcomes in terms of heart disease and diabetes. (See: Coconut oil consumption improves fat-free mass, plasma HDL-cholesterol and insulin sensitivity in healthy men with normal BMI compared to peanut oil.)

                                                                                          A researcher at The University of Edinburgh Medical School wrote a Letter to the Editor of Clinical Nutrition commenting on this study, criticizing current government nutritional guidelines regarding saturated dietary fat restrictions.

                                                                                          “The cross-over study by Korrapati et al. detailed the potential cardioprotective effect of coconut oil, and I would like to thank the authors for their insight. Whilst the sample size was small, it was well-designed to investigate its primary end-points.

                                                                                          This study is particularly topical as, despite removal of the maximum dietary fat intake restriction from guidelines, a major resistance against saturated fats remains.”

                                                                                          Setting aside the issue of whether or not saturated fats should be restricted at all, given the abundance of contrary evidence in the medical literature, the Edinburgh Medical School researcher reported that such guidelines do not distinguish between different types of saturated fats. Saturated fats can be found in animal products, such as butter, as well as plant sources, such as coconuts and date palms.

                                                                                          “The rise in high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) with coconut oil consumption is certainly a compelling finding. Results from a recent and larger-scale randomised trial by Khaw et al. corroborate this… Evidence suggests that the saturated versus unsaturated distinction of fats is likely an oversimplification.

                                                                                          Korrapati et al. should, therefore, be commended on their focus on the biological properties of coconut oil, particularly the medium chain triglyceride (MCT) dominated fatty acid profile, which may confer atheroprotective effects.”

                                                                                            As a recent NY Times Health Section article reported, there is allegedly a hospital cover-up of an emerging candida fungus, Candida or C. auris.

                                                                                            It is the latest antimicrobial drug-resistant “super-bug” to emerge in hospitals and nursing homes. This time it’s not about bacteria, it’s a virulent form of candida.

                                                                                            And while the corporate media, sponsored in a large degree by Big Pharma, will almost never report on natural solutions, there is hope for fighting fungal infections like Candida where drugs have failed.

                                                                                            One of the most beneficial natural products that fights and kills strains of Candida, according to peer-reviewed research over the past several years, is coconut oil.

                                                                                                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.

                                                                                                “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.

                                                                                                        In my new book, Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, I argue that the synergistic action of diarrhea and the appendix provides a strong case for foresight and thus for intelligent design.

                                                                                                        Jerry Coyne, writing at Why Evolution Is True, has responded. For that I am grateful. See, “ID craziness: Diarrhea and the appendix are signs of intelligent design.”

                                                                                                        I wish, enthusiastically, to reply. The subject under discussion is so-called vestigial organs, specifically the appendix. For decades we were told that — due to evolution — our body includes organs that have lost their functions and are therefore in the process of being eliminated.

                                                                                                        Dr. Coyne adds that some of those condemned organs, by accidently finding other functions, may get lucky enough to escape extinction. This is possible, I agree. The “vestigial organs” are taken as strong evidence for evolution and against ID. After all, an intelligent designer would have no use for useless organs. With that I also agree.

                                                                                                        However, we must let the data speak. When we do, learning more about the physiology of our body, we find that “vestigial organs” have amazing functions after all.

                                                                                                          Dr. Richard Scott is a General Practitioner at Bethesda Medical Centre in Margate, Kent.

                                                                                                          Dr. Scott states that he only prays with about one out of every 40 patients, and that he always asks for their permission first. Of those he asks, about 90% accept, and the ones who do not, he respects their right to refuse.

                                                                                                          The complaint to the General Medical Council was allegedly not made by any of his patients, but by an “acquaintance” of one of his patients, who then worked with The National Secular Society (NSS) to lodge the complaint.

                                                                                                          The NSS allegedly wrote that a “highly vulnerable patient” was uneasy with the use of prayer during a consultation. NSS chief executive Stephen Evans reportedly confirmed that the complaint came from someone known to the patient rather than the patient themselves.

                                                                                                          • Surgeon With Flag On Background Series - Canada

                                                                                                            Here’s the story: The Canadian Charter (Constitution) guarantees “freedom of conscience and religion” — a stronger and more explicit protection of religious liberty than our First Amendment.

                                                                                                            After the Supreme Court created a right to euthanasia, Ontario passed a law requiring doctors to kill legally eligible patients who want to die or provide an “effective referral” if they have moral objections — i.e., procure a doctor known by the dissenter to be willing to euthanize patients.

                                                                                                            Catholic and other religious doctors sued to enforce their Charter liberties. Referring equals complicity, the doctors argued, and thus the law forces them to violate their religious beliefs and consciences.

                                                                                                            In one of the world’s most important “medical conscience” rulings, a trial judge admitted the doctors’ Charter rights were indeed infringed. But he ruled that a right (nowhere mentioned in the Charter) to “equal and equitable access” to legal and government-funded medical interventions trumped doctors’ freedom of religion.

                                                                                                            Now a Court of Appeals has affirmed, ruling that doctors must not only euthanize or refer, but also abort or refer, and provide any other controversial legal service that a patient might want or refer — their religious freedoms or moral consciences be damned.

                                                                                                            • Canadian Doctor Standing With Stethoscope On Canada Flag Backgro

                                                                                                              Canadian doctors committed thousands of homicides in 2018. According to an interim report published by the government, in the first ten months of last year, doctors lethally injected 2,613 patients (with one assisted suicide) — and that doesn’t include the homicides committed by doctors in Quebec, Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut.

                                                                                                              The report says that about 1.12 percent of all Canadian deaths were caused by euthanasia, a number that is increasing every year.

                                                                                                              No wonder. Efforts are increasing to normalize lethal injection as a way of death — and soon we are likely to see the killable caste expanded in Canada to include children, people whose deaths are not “foreseeable,” those with dementia who asked to be killed in an advance directive, and perhaps, the mentally ill (as happens regularly in the Netherlands and Belgium).

                                                                                                              If 1.12 percent of our deaths in the U.S. were doctor-homicides, it would amount to nearly 30,000.

                                                                                                              These statistics are stark, but they don’t tell the whole story. Because these radical policies have only been in effect for a relatively short time, we don’t yet know the moral costs of allowing doctors to kill sick patients or assist their suicides.

                                                                                                                It is really not necessary to be a biochemist or a paleontologist to understand the main issue in the debate between Darwinism and intelligent design. That is because it is a very simple principle, as I keep emphasizing: natural (unintelligent) causes do not create order (or information). They destroy it.

                                                                                                                While every other natural process tends to turn order into disorder, Darwinists have always believed that natural selection is the one unintelligent process in the universe that can create spectacular order out of disorder.

                                                                                                                So I feel vindicated by Michael Behe’s new book, Darwin Devolves, which disputes this belief, and argues that despite all the claims about the creative powers of natural selection, it has never actually been observed to produce anything new and complex, only “devolution.”

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.

                                                                                                                  Due to its size, one could say the American foster care system would be severely crippled without the involvement of the SBC, which partners with many local organizations across the U.S. to provide foster care and adoption services, primarily through its North American Mission Board, and its “Send Relief” program.

                                                                                                                  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?

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.

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

                                                                                                                        Pedophilia Crimes Against Children Inside and Outside the Church - Time to Acknowledge the Child Sex Trafficking Problem

                                                                                                                        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.

                                                                                                                        • The International Tribunal for Natural Justice the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse

                                                                                                                          800K Children in the U.S. Missing Each Year - International Tribunal Exposes Pedophilia Problem - Victims Testify of Child Sex Trafficking and Satanic Ritual Abuse

                                                                                                                          800,000 children a year in the United States go missing, many of them being sexually trafficked through pedophilia networks where the children suffer unimaginable horrors such as Satanic ritual abuse.

                                                                                                                          This number is comprised of documented cases of children gone missing, and does not include children who are born and bred into pedophilia networks and have no birth certificates, or undocumented immigrant children who come across the borders.

                                                                                                                          Worldwide, the number is close to 8 million children missing and being sexually trafficked.

                                                                                                                          Such is the scope of the problem that was reported earlier this year (2018) in Westminster, London by The International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ), as the court convened over a 3-day period to launch their Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse.

                                                                                                                          The Judicial Commission is comprised of world leaders who have been involved in fighting child sex trafficking for years, and includes intelligence officers, politicians, legal scholars, and many others.

                                                                                                                          The International Tribunal was formed because most of the world’s government bodies today have been corrupted and no longer represent the people, but instead private corporate interests, and as such, justice is seldom found in most government judicial courts around the world today to stop such a heinous crime as child sex trafficking.
