    Healthy Traditions Adds Glyphosate-tested Italian Pizza Flour to Product Line

    In 2014 when we tested our USDA certified organic grains, we found that almost all of them had traces of the herbicide glyphosate at levels similar to non-organic wheat.

    Some scientists and researchers believe that the epidemic of gluten-sensitive diseases we are seeing today are related to glyphosate, and not necessarily the gluten.(See: Common Weedkiller Used in Modern Agriculture Could be Main Factor in Gluten Intolerance.)

    While anyone with gluten sensitivities definitely needs to avoid gluten, for the rest of us, we need to be consuming healthy grains that are not contaminated. After much research, we found a source in Italy that grows traditional soft wheat where batches we tested showed no trace of herbicides.

    Healthy Traditions is excited to bring you this high quality Italian Type 00 Flour! This is the flour Italians use to make the absolute best pizza crust. It is also very versatile and can be used to make light and fluffy bread, cakes, fresh pasta and more! The light airy texture makes this flour a joy to work with and your creations will turn out fantastico!

      Healthy Traditions Introduces New Estate-bottled Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil

      Do you trust the label on your Extra Virgin Olive Oil? Numerous scandals have been uncovered over the last twenty years which have revealed that many extra virgin olive oils being sold in the United States do not meet the high standard for this product. Many have been adulterated with lower grade olive oils or with nut and seed oils. Others simply have serious flavor and aroma defects, which should prevent them from being called “extra virgin.”

      Our superb estate-bottled cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is from SANTIAGO, CHILE. The Mediterranean climate of this region is perfect for growing olives. The valley where the olives are grown is nestled between a small Pacific costal mountain range and the larger Andes Mountains. This unique setting allows for warm days and cool nights to help produce the wonderful taste of this fruity oil.

      This estate practices sustainable agriculture principles and no chemical pesticides or fertilizers are used on the olives or the trees. As an added assurance the oil has been tested for the herbicide glyphosate. This estate-bottled organic extra virgin olive oil has a polyphenol count of 416 milligrams, which is very high for an extra virgin olive oil.

        Healthy Traditions Announces GMO-tested Corn Chips fried in Coconut Oil

        Healthy Traditions is proud to bring you our Authentic Mexican Corn Tortilla Chips; made with our GMO-tested White Corn from Mexico and fried in our Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil!

        This hardy chip will stand up to any guacamole, salsa, or nacho recipe you can bring.

        Our chip is very different from most other chips you will find in the market. These are made in small batches using authentic ingredients; the result is a chip that has a firm “bite” and won’t break at the site of that cold hummus from the fridge.

        We start by sourcing our corn from a farm in Central Mexico near what is thought to be the “birthplace” of corn.

        We went to this region because GMO corn is banned, therefore the risk of cross contamination from GMO corn is much lower. We also appreciate that the farmers grow corn from seed that has been passed down from generation to generation.

        By using heirloom corn we believe the real corn flavor comes through in our chip. The corn is grown using organic standards, but as an added assurance we have lab tested samples from the farm, with no trace of GMOs or glyphosate found in the batches we tested.

        Once we have the corn in the U.S. we send it to an expert tortilla maker in Austin, TX, where the corn is transformed into masa, through the traditional Aztec process of nixtamalization.

        During this process the corn is soaked and cooked in an alkaline solution of limewater (calcium hydroxide and water), which allows the husk to “slip” from the kernel. This process is beneficial in several ways.

          New Healthy Traditions Website Launched Featuring GMO-tested and Glyphosate-tested Products

          Visitors to TropicalTraditions.com and other websites owned by Tropical Traditions, including Grass-fed Traditions and Household Traditions, will now notice that they are doing their shopping on HealthyTraditions.com.

          In 2002 Tropical Traditions was formed to distribute Virgin Coconut Oil made by hand by small-scale producers in the Philippines. Tropical Traditions was the first one to introduce “Virgin Coconut Oil” from the Philippines to the U.S. market. Demonized for years as “unhealthy” due to the high content of saturated fat in coconut oil, there were very few places where one could purchase coconut oil in 2002, and the few sources available were generally highly refined coconut oils.

          Tropical Traditions changed the market and the public’s perception regarding coconut oil and saturated fats, and today coconut oil is widely available in stores everywhere and only considered unhealthy by those misinformed by the propaganda against saturated fats.

          Today, the business is so much more than just a coconut oil company, and as the company continues to grow and develop unique healthy products that are hard to find elsewhere in the market, they are now bringing all of their product lines under the banner of “Healthy Traditions” to more accurately describe the mission of the company.

            Antibiotic Drugs in America's Meat Supply: Scorecard Rates Worst Offenders in Restaurant Industry

            A stunning 70 percent of all antibiotics important in human medicine in the U.S. are sold for use in animal agriculture. These lifesaving drugs are fed routinely to animals that are not sick in order to promote growth and prevent diseases that spread easily in crowded, filthy factory farm conditions. Public health agencies have declared antibiotic resistance a top health threat in the U.S. — and the rampant misuse of antibiotics in livestock production is a major cause.

            Chain Reaction II is the second annual report and scorecard that grades America’s top restaurant chains’ on their policies and practices regarding antibiotics use and transparency in their meat and poultry supply chains.

            The good news is that consumer and investor pressure has pushed twice as many companies as last year to create more responsible antibiotics policies, particularly for chicken. The bad news is that Olive Garden, KFC and 14 other chains received F grades and little progress has been made on pork and beef.

            Only two restaurant chains received an A grade: Chipotle and Panera.

              Health Benefits of Blackstrap Molasses for Missing Minerals

              It has been established for some time that our agricultural topsoil is depleted and lacking the full compliment of minerals that should be there. Large industrial monoculture farming practices that include no fallow time or alternating crops with the extensive use of herbicides and pesticides are rightly blamed for this lack of minerals.

              This mineral deficiency is no light matter. It affects the crop foods we eat. Without minerals, vitamins are dysfunctional, and metabolizing them is hampered. Almost everyone is magnesium deficient, for example, and magnesium is involved with over 300 cellular metabolic functions. Some say more.

              Even organic farmers often have to overcome topsoil deficits initially. Some organically oriented farmers do over time, but it’s safe to assume that other large scale farms don’t or don’t bother much. After all, USDA organic certification depends on how crops are grown, not necessarily on the quality of its soil.

              Trace minerals are also vital for our health, yet they are mostly ignored and considered insignificant by many medical practitioners and mainstream nutritionists. Relying on supplements for enhancing one’s bodily mineral content has its drawbacks. One doesn’t know the purity of supplemental contents and their other ingredients. How well they’re digested and assimilated is also an issue.

              Blackstrap molasses is an excellent source of many minerals.

                Medical Doctors Punished & Silenced for Giving "Unapproved" High Fat Dietary Advice

                Dr. Gary Fettke, MD, of Australia and Professor Tim Noakes, MD, of South Africa are both being attacked for saving lives by promoting the low carbohydrate high fat diet.

                In the case of orthopedic surgeon Dr. Fettke, his offence against the Australian medical establishment was to teach his patients how to use the low carb high fat (LCHF) diet to reverse their type 2 diabetes and avoid the amputation of their feet and legs. He and his wife Belinda Fettke established two clinics to help people adopt a low carb high fat eating lifestyle. The sanctions placed on him prevent him from recommending or speaking about the LCHF diet to anyone, anywhere, and at any time for the rest of his life.

                In the case of Professor Emeritus Dr. Noakes, his offence against the South African medical establishment was to show that a low carb high fat diet could reverse numerous diseases. His LCHF book The Real Meal Revolution, is the all-time top selling non-fiction book in South Africa with more than 200,000 copies sold in the last two years. Affiliated with the University of Cape Town, Professor Emeritus Dr. Noakes has distinguished himself as one of the world’s most famous sports scientists. His work has evoked considerable backlash from those who seek to enforce compliance with high carb low fat dietary dogma.

                Dr. Noakes is refusing to yield to persecution by the trivial charge that was brought against him, and is using his trial to bring the science of the LCHF diet into public view in South Africa and around the world.

                Together, Drs. Noakes and Fettke used decades of scientific research to show the link between the government recommended high carb low fat diet and arterial disease, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and dementia.

                  Healthy Traditions Adds Flax Seeds Tested Clean of Glyphosate to Product Line

                  Healthy Traditions announced today that they have added Raw Brown Whole Flax Seeds to their line of GMO-tested and Glyphosate-tested products.

                  Healthy Traditions is a brand of Tropical Traditions, and in 2014 Tropical Traditions tested their USDA certified organic grains for the presence of glyphosate. They were shocked to find many of their grains were contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate.

                  In their search for new products that would test clean for the presence of both GMOs and glyphosate, they had a very difficult time finding flax seeds that tested clean for the presence of glyphosate. The area of the U.S. where most flax seeds grow are in northern states where desiccating crops with glyphosate is common practice to control the harvest prior to snowfall.

                  Finally, almost 2 years later, they obtained samples from a farm in Italy that tested clean on the samples which were tested. They now offer this very high quality flax seed to their American market.

                    Olive Oil Lovers Need to Be Wary of Olive Oil Scams

                    It’s likely that many Americans who have been buying olive oil for decades have never tasted the real thing. In fact, it’s likely that many of those who bought and used fake or compromised olive oils would reject the real thing because it tastes odd to them.

                    Olive racketeering has been going on for quite a while to some extent. The Romans of B.C. ages had to clamp down on it.

                    But it is bigger and more sophisticated now than ever. Genuine olive oil is time consuming to produce and demands higher prices than most other edible oils. Yet olive oil is easy to adulterate and sell as the real thing.

                    Why is this important? It is the centerpiece of the Mediterranean Diet. Its monounsaturated oleic and palmitic fatty acids along with its healthy polyphenols are very heart healthy. Additionally, according to the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH):

                    “Being able to buy authentic extra virgin olive oil is all the more important because it is a superfood. Among other good things, it contains a miracle ingredient known as oleuropein, which has anticancer, pro-mitochondrial, antibiotic, and anti-Alzheimer’s properties. It also contains polyphenols and antioxidants with anti-inflammatory benefits. It is a mainstay of the ketogenic diet.”

                    Some claim that since olive oil scam exposures the olive oil industry has cleaned its act somewhat. After explaining how olive oil frauds work and their recent history, there will be information provided of what makes a perfect olive oil and how you can determine if it is truly as advertised.

                      Leaked Emails Show Government Corruption in Approving Aspartame

                      Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame are typically used to sweeten so-called “diet” foods and beverages in lieu of sugar or high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). The idea is that reducing your calorie consumption will result in weight loss.

                      However, research has completely demolished this notion, showing that artificial sweeteners actually have the converse effect; they actually lower appetite suppressant chemicals and encourage sugar cravings and sugar dependence, thereby raising your odds of unwanted weight gain.

                      Research has repeatedly shown that artificial sweeteners promote insulin resistance and related health problems just like regular sugar does, including cardiovascular disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.

                      John Podesta’s leaked emails have turned up a number of damning pieces confirming the collusion between the soda industry and high level officials within the U.S. government, including Hillary Clinton.

                        When I was a child, nearly everybody became ill with chickenpox. Like nearly all kids, when I became ill with it, I stayed home from school about a week and fully recovered.

                        All that changed in 1995, when the FDA licensed and approved the live attenuated chickenpox (varicella) vaccine in persons aged >12 months. After the vaccine began to be used by most children, the incidence of chickenpox rapidly declined. However, due to continual outbreaks of chickenpox, a second dose of the chickenpox vaccine was added to the childhood immunization schedule in 2006.

                        Is the chickenpox vaccine effective at significantly lowering the incidence of chickenpox? Yes. Due to the vaccine, there is a significantly lowered incidence of chickenpox.

                        However, the most important question to ask is, “Has the chickenpox vaccine (along with the other 70 doses of vaccines given) improved the lives of our children and the rest of the population? The answer to that question is easy: No.

                          The state’s shameful record goes back a decade or more, and frequently opposition has been disconnected or silenced. More and more families have been destroyed, children lost, and lives broken.

We are here for families and physicians living in fear they will be discriminated against and punished if they speak honestly in their communities about what they know to be true.

                                We have come to defend freedom of thought, speech, and conscience, the inalienable natural rights that unite us, regardless of where we live, the color of our skin, the faith that sustains us, or the philosophies that define us.

                                We are calling on the government to do its job and protect the people’s health – instead of protecting profit-making industries doing business with government and manipulating information released by the mainstream media.

                                We are advocating for the right to know the truth about the safety of the food we eat, the water we drink, the drugs doctors prescribe and the vaccines Americans are forced to get to attend school, and receive medical care, and hold a job.

                                  Toddler Permanently Brain Damaged by a Mystery Combination Vaccination That Her Parent’s Did Not Consent To

                                  On May 17, 1993, Mr. and Mrs. Marchant took their daughter, Jodie, to the doctor for her 14-month checkup. Jodie was fit and healthy and meeting all her milestones, so her parents agreed for her to be vaccinated with the MMR vaccination, a decision that will haunt them forever. Mr. Marchant explained to us what happened the moment that Jodie received her vaccination:

                                  “Jodie let out a high-pitched scream and appeared to be in a state of shock. Her eyes became vacant as if in a trance and she appeared to lose interest in eating and refused all food and we had to resort to giving her milkshakes. Jodie did not recognize anyone for a long time. Note, in 1997, her then-GP was able to confirm that Jodie was okay prior to vaccination and this confirms the records were available when the GP INSPECTED THEM. Jodie stopped movement and would sit on the sofa rocking with eyes rolling and stopped talking.”

                                  It appears that instead of receiving the MMR vaccine, as agreed, Jodie received a mystery vaccination.

                                  If what her parents are saying is true and Jodie did only receive one shot on the day she was vaccinated, then we need to consider whether or not Jodie’s doctor decided to mix several vaccinations into one syringe without her parents’ knowledge or consent.

                                  Whilst the majority of us would consider this to be not only unethical but also highly unlikely, remarkably, it is a possibility because, in 2013, the Globe and Mail reported that a pediatrician from Halifax was found guilty of doing the unthinkable.

                                    The High Court of Justice of Asturias- Spain (TSJA) has condemned the Asturian Health System for the death of Andrea, a young Spanish girl who died in September 2012 after getting the second shot of the HPV vaccine. The Court recognizes the bad practice of the hospitals of Jove and Cabueñes since they did not diagnose the pathology before the second shot of the vaccine was supplied which caused the death of the young woman.

                                    Andrea was a young woman with a medical history of mild episodes of bronchial asthma. When she got the first shot of the HPV vaccine on July 23, 2012, she became sick with a headache and breathing difficulty. Although she suffered from a severe asthmatic exacerbation, she got the second shot on August 23, 2012, with a sudden worsening. As a result of this, she suffered severe dyspnea and seizures only 12 hours after receiving the vaccine. She was moved to the Maternal and Child Hospital of the HUCA where she remained in the Pediatric Intensity Care Unit until she died on 8 September.

                                      A young Georgia mother had no idea that a routine trip to the pediatrician’s office for her son’s 1 year check-up would change her son’s life forever, and leave her fighting the state for custody of her own son. When the nurse-practitioner told her that her son was a little behind on his shots and they would need to catch up, Durenda Whitehead didn’t question the need for the vaccines. She did, however, question the safety of giving 13 vaccines at once.

                                      Durenda’s pediatrician assured her that it was fine: “I can give up to 20 at one time.” She said that they told her at the pediatrician’s office to give him some Tylenol, and to “play extra hard with him when he gets home.”

                                      Over the next few days, Durenda reports that KJ was sleeping much more than usual, only waking to eat. She describes his rapid decline:

                                      “I noticed my son didn’t attempt to follow me as usual and he started to cry. I called his name so he would come to me, but his cry only got louder. When I came back in the room to see why he wasn’t coming, he leaned his body forward and reached for me… He had this ‘help me’ look in his eyes while he continued to cry.”

                                      However, Durenda soon learned that doctors are reluctant to look at vaccines as a cause of harm, and she soon found herself in the hospital being confronted with law enforcement taking away her son because she dared to disagree with a doctor.

                                        The Danish Study, published in 2003 by the journal Pediatrics asserted that autism rates in Denmark rose dramatically after mercury was no longer used in vaccines for children in the Netherlands, thus “proving” that there is no association with thimerosal (mercury) in vaccines to autism.

                                        The Danish Study became a major study quoted by the FDA, the IOM (The National Institute of Medicine) now renamed the National Academy of Medicine, and the CDC to “disprove” the dangers of thimerosal in vaccines and the MMR even without thimerosal. It became the cornerstone of all media and public denial of autism from vaccines.

                                        Even worse, it served as the legal basis for dismissing over 5,000 autism claims in The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program or “Vaccine Court” in 2010, and totally removing autism claims from vaccine injuries completely.

                                          California Mom Who Lost New-born Baby at Hospital Cleared of Drug Charges, but Still Does Not Have Children Back

                                          A beloved California schoolteacher is still fighting to get her children back 9 months after they were ripped away from her by Child Protective Services. Lori Ibrahim’s two-day old breastfeeding baby was seized by Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) after Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center accused her of drug abuse. The only drugs in her system were properly prescribed medications, but social workers used the positive drug screen as grounds to seize baby Youssef and his 5-year old brother Kian.

                                          Since that time, Lori has allegedly cooperated with every demand that DCFS has placed on her, including submission to a gag order to be silent and take down her Facebook page.

                                          Social workers have created an image of the mother to present to the court which seems to serve their apparent agenda of keeping the family apart.

                                          The reports, however, from the psychologist and other therapists that Lori has been compelled to see paint a vastly different picture. That picture is consistent with the reports from those who have worked with Lori and the parents whose young children Lori has taught in school during her 15 year career, a career that is now closed to her because of the DCFS allegations.

                                          Lori Ibrahim presented evidence to Health Impact News and to the court that she was innocent of the charges that were used to seize her children. The court has reportedly dismissed the substance abuse allegations, finding that, as she said from the very beginning, she was only taking properly prescribed medications.

                                          Yet, it hasn’t made a difference – her boys are still not home.

                                            Rebel Medical Doctors: Cash Only Business Model Reduces Costs and Bureaucracy

                                            Even before Obamacare was brought to the table — which made medical coverage more complicated for most consumers and medical providers — an attempt was made to take back real doctoring by eliminating complicated billing and insurance code allowances and replacing them with cash only payments for various treatments.

                                            Starting in 1995, a few Seattle, Washington M.D.s established a practice of concierge medicine where clients would pay a monthly, quarterly, or annual out-of-pocket cash fee, similar to attorney retainers, for almost unlimited service attention and service.

                                            Now there are several types of primary care options among the cash only medical providers that exist in the minority, scattered throughout the nation. They have to restrict their patient lists to somewhere in the mid-hundreds to provide the personal care desired. Insurance based plans may have well over a thousand patients to one doctor.

                                              Study: Ketogenic Diet Offers Hope in Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders

                                              Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can include what are commonly defined as impeded social interactive developments and learning disorders. ASD could be as mild as hyperactivity and attention deficit or as extreme as total developmental shutdowns at early ages, little to no language abilities, and possibly chronic epileptic seizures.

                                              The ketogenic diet is simply one that restricts carbohydrates, especially refined carbohydrates, allows moderate or adequate protein intake, and enhances healthy organic dietary fat consumption. Categorizing the different factions of ASD psychologically unrealistically ignores the physiological aspects of ASD disorders.

                                              Instead, intense bowel and intestinal tract inflammations are listed as “co-morbid symptoms” and unrelated to ASD diagnostics. Not enough attention is placed on finding the underlying metabolic disorders involved in most cases of autism, which also produce the “co-morbid” symptoms.

                                              It’s already known that the ketogenic diet has positively impacted some with intractable epilepsy. Yet anti-seizure and anti-psychotic pharmaceuticals that at best merely control seizures without curing epilepsy are more commonly prescribed than monitored dietary changes. Not only do they have side effects, they create more metabolic disorders.

                                              Over the past two decades or so, more medical research has focused on the ketogenic diet’s potential for reducing the metabolic dysfunction that some consider as the root cause of many neurological diseases that plague us today.

                                                Blueberries: High Antioxidant Power to Protect the Brain

                                                Steven Pratt, M.D., author of Superfoods Rx: Fourteen Foods Proven to Change Your Life, calls blueberries “brain berries.” He cites research that demonstrates blueberries protect the brain from oxidative stress and thus the effects of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

                                                In one study, aging rats were fed blueberries and then given memory tests. The older rats that were fed blueberries performed as well as younger rats that were not fed blueberries. The phytochemical anthocyanin improves memory and mental fluidity.

                                                As mentioned, anthocyanins are powerful high antioxidant flavonoids that give blueberries their color. Anthocyanins are readily absorbed into the bloodstream and easily cross the blood-brain barrier. There they penetrate a region of the brain known as the striatum, a hub of memory and motor function. The striatum is of special concern to those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease.

                                                A diet rich in blueberries has demonstrated protection against brain cell loss, memory deficits, learning disability, and loss of motor coordination. Blueberries also stimulate the growth of new nerve cells and facilitate better communication between nerve cells via a process known as transduction.

                                                  Recent Hospital Sepsis Study Supports the Case for Mega-Dose Vitamin C Therapy

                                                  Mega-dose vitamin C treatments may someday become the standard of care in hospitals and E.R.s, but don’t expect this to occur without pharmaceutical drugs in the mix. A recent study discovered a combination of vitamin C, thiamine, and hydrocortisone resulted in increased recoveries from sepsis and septic shock under hospital conditions.

                                                  Sepsis and septic shock represents an outcome of an infectious pathogenic overwhelm or the immune system’s overreaction leading to a cytokine storm. Either way, the blood becomes toxic and organ tissues become damaged. Incidents of sepsis or septic shock are most likely to occur in intensive care sections of hospitals.

                                                  Extreme septic shock is often lethal, prompting a clinical study comparing the combination of IV vitamin C, thiamine, and hydrocortisone to one group and non-application to the other.

                                                  The study was titled, “Hydrocortisone, Vitamin C and Thiamine for the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: A Retrospective Before-After Study.” It was published in December 2016 in the journal Chest (for American chest physicians). The study was a cooperative effort among three Virginia area medical schools and institutions.

                                                  The study’s conclusion: “Our results suggest that the early use of intravenous vitamin C, together with corticosteroids and thiamine may prove to be effective in preventing progressive organ dysfunction including acute kidney injury and reducing the mortality of patients with severe sepsis and septic shock. Additional studies are required to confirm these preliminary findings.”

                                                      New Bills Proposed to Protect Consumer Access to Medical Marijuana Extract

                                                      Two bills have been introduced to protect consumer access to cannabidiol (CBD).

                                                      We have a growing opioid painkiller epidemic in this country—one that has followed the scandal of so many heart-health-destroying or cancer-causing pain relievers being approved by the FDA. There is a natural alternative, and of course the government is intent on banning it for no reason at all—other than to clear the way for a blockbuster new drug.

                                                      Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) has introduced two bills, the Legitimate Use of Medical Marijuana Act (HR 714) and the Compassionate Access Act (HR 715), both aimed at removing federal obstacles that prevent patient access to CBD, a medicinal extract of the marijuana plant.

                                                      These bills follow a recent move by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) that classified marijuana and all its extracts as Schedule I controlled substances—a category that includes heroin, LSD, mescaline, and MDMA. Note that none of the CBD extracts contains significant amounts of the psychoactive chemical in marijuana—only the non-psychoactive painkilling chemicals.

                                                      Although “CBD” or “cannibinoids” are not mentioned in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA)—the legislation that the DEA must follow in creating rules related to controlled substances—the agency nonetheless lumps CBD and all other constituents of the plant into the definition of “marijuana.”

They called the newly discovered vitamin Koagulationsvitamin. That may be one of the most straightforward and clear vitamin functions in a label we’ll ever see. Obviously that’s where the K comes from.

But Dr. Lanka took his loss to a higher court with more experts and the backing of two independent laboratories. He wound up not having to pay. It turned out that the “proof” provided was a composite of several different electron microscope images. And the composite involved different components of damaged cells. The composite could not be duplicated. The German Federal Supreme Court confirmed that there was not enough evidence to prove the existence of the measles virus.

                                                                    Recent news has highlighted a number of problems associated with this out-of-control use of agricultural chemicals, starting with atrazine.

                                                                      Regulators in Wisconsin have reportedly lifted the “cease and desist” order from a warning sent to Amish Wisconsin egg farmers in March. The 7-year operation where farmers shipped their eggs directly to consumers from their farm was temporarily shut down by an order from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture from a complaint that allegedly originated from regulators in California.

                                                                      After an outcry from customers and supporters who contacted the governor of Wisconsin and other officials, regulators reportedly told the farmers that they could continue shipping their eggs while they worked with them to bring them into compliance with the alleged violations.

                                                                      The farmers are happy to be able to sell their inventory of eggs again because they would have had to shut down their operation at the end of this week due to the cost of feeding and maintaining their flocks while not being able to sell their eggs.

                                                                      They are not sure yet if any new regulations or requirements placed on them will become a burden too costly to allow their operation to continue, so it is uncertain at this time if their 7-year direct-to-consumer egg operation will continue to operate into the foreseeable future. For now, customers can order the eggs from the Healthy Traditions’ website.

                                                                      Meanwhile, there is more evidence that the State of California was behind this action, as they recently sent a “cease and desist” order to Tropical Traditions regarding the sale and shipping of eggs.

                                                                      • Free-range-farm-UK

                                                                        Both the USDA and FDA seem to focus on protecting factory farming and all the industries that contribute to BigAg and Big Dairy from competition by smaller healthier operations. They do this by enforcing regulations meant for factory farms and CAFOs (Confined Animal Feeding Operations), which by their very vastness and economics need to be regulated since they are breeding grounds for disease.

                                                                        This holds true for foods that most urban shoppers take for granted, eggs and milk. Using the cover of “protecting human health,” these agencies force operations to protect against foodborne pathogens that often don’t work or are not necessary with good farming practices. We, consumers, get less nutrition from those milk and egg products but Big Ag thrives.

                                                                        One way to continue “business as usual” is to prevent the rising demand for healthier milk and eggs that encourage small dairies and egg producers to have any market presence.

                                                                        We should have the right to choose and support better farming.

                                                                          Monsanto and other glyphosate manufacturers appear to have distorted scientific evidence on the public health impacts of glyphosate in order to keep the controversial substance on the market, according to a new report released today by GLOBAL 2000 (Friends of the Earth Austria) with the support of Avaaz, BUND, Campact, CEO, GMWatch, Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Europe, PAN Germany, and Umweltinstitut München.

                                                                          Between 2012 and 2016, the companies sponsored a series of review articles published in scientific journals, all of which conclude that glyphosate and its commercial formulations are not harmful to health. The new report, “Buying Science”, shows that these industry-sponsored reviews of glyphosate’s carcinogenicity and genotoxicity (ability to damage DNA) contain fundamental scientific flaws, spanning from apparently calculated omissions and the introduction of irrelevant data to the violation of OECD guidance for the evaluation of rodent cancer studies. The reviews also consistently assign greater weight to unpublished industry studies than to studies that were peer-reviewed and published in scientific journals.

                                                                            People with allergies to soy protein now have one less source for purchasing soy-free eggs. Two small-scale farmers in Wisconsin have been informed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture that they must stop selling their soy-free and GMO-tested eggs to consumers until they meet state government regulations for shipping eggs that they allege the farmers are violating. They have been shipping their eggs directly to the homes of customers throughout the United States since the beginning of 2010.

                                                                            In letters dated, March 13, 2017, the State of Wisconsin sent two farmers who are part of the Wisconsin Pasturelands Cooperative a Cease and Desist order regarding their eggs. The two farmers were informed that they were selling eggs and shipping them to consumers without proper refrigeration during shipping. They were specifically instructed that until this situation is corrected, “you shall not hold, process, package or sell the eggs for human consumption from your home or any other location.”

                                                                            The farmer cooperative run by Amish in rural Wisconsin since 2010 has been working together with an Internet business, Tropical Traditions (now Healthy Traditions), to market their eggs from cage-free chickens fed a specially developed feed that contains no soy, no corn, and ingredients that are tested to be free from GMOs and the herbicide glyphosate.

                                                                            They are believed to be one of the first ones in the U.S. to offer eggs from chickens on a soy-free diet. The eggs were marketed under the Grass-fed Traditions brand, which is now part of the Healthy Traditions product line offering alternatives to commodity food. Healthy Traditions tests their products for the presence of GMOs and the herbicide glyphosate.

                                                                            While the State of Wisconsin is claiming that the farmers are violating regulations for the refrigerated transportation of eggs, there is no indication that these regulations apply to consumers transporting their own eggs, whether they are transporting the eggs themselves directly from the farm, or paying someone else to ship them on their behalf.

                                                                              According to Dr. Anthony Samsel, the author of several published studies showing the toxicity of glyphosate, these documents were sealed as “trade secrets.” He was able to obtain copies of the documents and discussed his findings in an interview back in 2015.

                                                                              Samsel states that these problems with glyphosate causing cancer and other health problems were known to the EPA back in the 1970s.

                                                                              Unfortunately, this news was completely ignored by the mainstream media.

                                                                              Earlier this month (March 2017) however, Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco federal court, who is presiding over litigation brought by people who claim to have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of exposure to glyphosate, ordered many sealed files on glyphosate to be unsealed in pending litigation against Monsanto.

                                                                              This was big news, and the mainstream media was forced to cover it.

                                                                                The Montana and Idaho legislatures are currently considering bills that would loosen restrictions on the sale of raw milk. The Montana bill has already been approved by the state’s House of Representatives and is now being considered by its Senate.

                                                                                Apparently the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) think consumers aren’t qualified to make this decision for themselves. In response to the Montana bill, the CDC issued the following warning:

                                                                                “Raw milk can contain harmful germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can make you very sick or possibly kill you. If you’re thinking about drinking raw milk because you believe it has health benefits, consider other options.”

                                                                                This is nothing new; it’s been the position of government health officials for years. The FDA in particular has taken an aggressive stance against purveyors of raw milk.

                                                                                The vendetta against raw milk is completely unjustified. As our friends at the Weston A. Price Foundation point out in their campaign for “real milk,” raw milk has a proven safety record and has shown to be superior to pasteurized milk in protecting against infection, diarrhea, rickets, tooth decay, and tuberculosis. Children drinking raw milk also have better growth rates than those drinking pasteurized milk.

USDA researchers found a total of 178 different pesticides and pesticide breakdown products on the thousands of produce samples they analyzed. The pesticide residues remained on fruits and vegetables even after they were washed and, in some cases, peeled.

Fortunately, Health Impact News and their CoconutOil.com website is the leading authority today on the health benefits of coconut oil, keeping you up-to-date on all the published research about coconut oil you will never read in the mainstream corporate media.

Ketones can even reverse Alzheimer’s disease. Of course, the pharmaceutical industry and their support of the mainstream media would like to keep that information from being known.

                                                                                    There are even folks losing weight with high-fat ketogenic dieting, which includes the saturated fat coconut oil and other whole unadulterated healthy fats, to debunk the unscientific dogma of saturated fats as responsible for obesity. Many studies have demonstrated coconut oil’s antifungal and antibacterial capabilities as well.

But it’s doubtful that a certified dermatologist would recommend that for most skin issues.

                                                                                      The University of Central Florida Medical School offered a paper published early in 2017 titled “Coconut oil: The future of atopic dermatitis treatment?”

More extensive trials that comprehensively examine the positive and negative effects of treating AD with VCO are indicated.

                                                                                          A study published in January 2017 in Nigeria shows the hepatoprotective effect of virgin coconut oil when used with MTX cancer chemotherapy.

                                                                                          Chemotherapy drugs are known for damaging the liver. Unlike the U.S., where government dietary advice is still against saturated fats and coconut oil, many of the coconut-producing countries are learning that their traditional diets high in saturated fats, and specifically coconut oil, are actually healthy. There is a wide body of research now looking at the health benefits of coconut oil, specifically virgin coconut oil, which is less refined than machine-made commercial coconut oils.

                                                                                          The current study from Nigeria acknowledges that the “emerging health benefit of virgin coconut oil (VCO) has been associated with its potent natural antioxidants.”

                                                                                          So they designed a study using rats to see if virgin coconut oil and its antioxidant properties could protect the liver against oxidative stress caused by chemotherapy cancer drugs. They saw a definite improvement in liver function from the group that consumed virgin coconut oil.

Did you know that virgin coconut oil is 50 percent or more lauric acid? So whatever healthy attributes lauric acid contains so does coconut oil, and more.
                                                                                            And more will be explained later in this article. For now we’ll focus on coconut oil’s major component, lauric acid, and a recent animal study with dramatic results discovered for reducing hypertension (high blood pressure) and oxidative stress.

                                                                                                Recently he wrote a blog post on saturated fat and cardiovascular disease. He commented on how the science actually proves the opposite conclusion from what is commonly believed about saturated fats:

                                                                                                To be honest, I have studied saturated fat consumption many, many… many, many, times. The one thing that has always stood out, most starkly, is the complete lack of any real evidence to support the idea that it causes cardiovascular disease.

                                                                                                On the other hand, evidence contradicting it arrives on an almost daily basis.

                                                                                                  The term “ketogenic” is derived from attaching the suffix “-genic” to the word “ketone.” Ketones are produced in the liver from fat. As ketones are produced more, a state of ketosis is created. Ketosis allows fat to be converted into energy instead of storing it as fat. Ketosis even promotes reducing existing excess body fat by converting it into energy.

                                                                                                  One of the most efficient saturated fats for ketosis is virgin coconut oil. Instead of long chain triglycerides that most other healthy fats contain, coconut oil is comprised of medium chain triglycerides, which are most easily converted into ketones.

                                                                                                  So consuming healthy fats, not trans-fat substitutes, and cutting back considerably on processed or refined carbohydrates is proving to increase health and reduce obesity and all the problems associated with it, including diabetes and heart disease.

It proclaims that eating foods containing saturated fats are the root cause of obesity and heart disease. It has prevailed for over a half-century and is only now beginning to deteriorate.

                                                                                                    The most obvious harm done by the false propaganda against saturated fats in traditional foods are with regions that relied heavily on saturated fats for centuries, especially edible tropical oils such as coconut oil prior to the lipid hypothesis or theory’s dogma that permeated and replaced their traditional diets.

                                                                                                    A recent paper, “Coconut oil and palm oil’s role in nutrition, health and national development: A review,” was published in the September 2016 Ghana Medical Journal (GMJ).

But their focus this time was renal, or kidney health.

                                                                                                      So they used five times heated palm oil (5HPO) to induce high blood pressure in rats bred for animal study research, Sprague-Dawley rats. The rats were divided into four groups fed slightly different diets, half with 5HPO and the other half with virgin coconut oil (VCO). Systolic blood pressure was measured before and after the 16 week study.

                                                                                                      The rats fed VCO had significantly less oxidative stress markers in their kidneys than the 5HPO fed rats, leading the researchers to conclude “ … virgin coconut oil has a potential to reduce the development of hypertension and renal injury induced by dietary heated oil, possibly via its antioxidant protective effects on the kidneys.”

This means if we want to escape the mind control program of the ruling elite, then we must make conscious choices of when, where, and how we will allow ourselves to be exposed to the tools they are using to control us.

                                                                                                          Mind controllers are working through the mainstream news media, education system, TV, movies, popular music, amusement parks, sports teams, internet, social media, computer games, pornography, and even some churches that support the agenda of the ruling elite. They are training us to accept a new world order where individual rights and even national sovereignty must give way to a one-world system of total control.

                                                                                                          The agenda of the ruling elite is to establish a single world government, a single set of world laws, a single world court, a single world currency and economy, a single world education system, and a single world religion. They plan to bring down the world population from the current level of more than 7 billion people to a scant 500 million. In their new world order, all decisions will be made for us. In this system, there will be the ruling elite and a kind of slave class that serves them. To bring this about, they must give us a new worldview. This will require us to change how we think and to believe a large number of lies about every aspect of life.

                                                                                                          This article will examine some of the tools that mind controllers use to program us and will discuss how we can step out of the mind control trap that they have designed for us.

As atheists this is something that is manifestly true to us. We make our own meaning and purpose.”

                                                                                                              He went on to say: “Evolution is the greatest killer of belief that has ever happened on this planet because it showed that some of the best evidence for God, which was the design of animals and plants that so wonderfully matched their environment could be the result of this naturalistic, blind materialistic process of natural selection.”

                                                                                                              Coyne is by no means alone in claiming Darwinism, with its insistence that all organisms have arisen through chance events (mutations) without plan or purpose, leads logically to the position that human life has no meaning or purpose. In my book The Death of Humanity: And the Case for Life, I provide many examples of evolutionary biologists and other intellectuals who argue Darwinism sweeps away the benighted notion that human life has meaning.

                                                                                                                • Opiliones_harvestman

                                                                                                                  Stasis: Life Goes On but Evolution Does Not Happen

                                                                                                                  Species often explode suddenly into life, as in the Cambrian explosion, which even Darwin found to be a problem for natural selection. Some of them do not persist beyond the age to which they are adapted. That does not require an explanation.

                                                                                                                  But others just settle down to long eons where they don’t change much, no matter what the environment. And “stabilizing selection” does not account for that. The cockroach, for example, is still around and still easily identifiable after perhaps 350 million years. The 350-million-year-old coelacanth fish and the 300-million-year-old horsetail grass survive largely unchanged.

                                                                                                                  • Priest holding Bible. Portrait of priest reading the Holy Bible

                                                                                                                    Is "Pastor" A Biblical Title for Church Leaders?

                                                                                                                    The English word “pastor” today is most often used in front of a person’s name as a title of someone in a leadership position within a church or religious organization. But is this common title used so often in modern culture really biblical? Would believers in Jesus Christ in the First Century, among whom are the writers of the New Testament portion of the Bible, have used this term as a title, representing leaders and authorities?

                                                                                                                    Who will follow the one true Pastor Jesus, who is the rightful owner of the one true flock, and tend to his sheep under his leadership? Who will pray in faith with the power and authority of Jesus to affect true healing for the multitudes that are suffering in the 21st century? Who will deal with the disease and effects of sin and receive the forgiveness from Jesus that cleanses and heals?

                                                                                                                      What do you enjoy more? Giving a gift, or receiving one? If you are like most people, you enjoying giving gifts to others more than you do receiving gifts. However, the joy you receive back in seeing someone accept your gift is 100% dependent on that person deciding to receive it. If they don’t take it, they rob you of the joy you receive in giving the gift.

                                                                                                                      Did you know that your unwillingness to receive gifts could keep you from entering the kingdom of God?

                                                                                                                        Perhaps the greatest leap of blind, uncritical and unquestioning faith that I see among well-educated people today is something called scientism. Scientism is the belief that science is the best and only trustworthy method to discover truth. Supernatural explanations are a priori ruled out. The result is atheism dressed up as science.

                                                                                                                        • Fetus

                                                                                                                          After a 3-Year investigative journalism study of Planned Parenthood, the Center for Medical Progress released its videotaped exposé filmed on July 25, 2014. The video shows two actors posing as employees of a human biologics company discussing with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted fetuses, using partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

                                                                                                                          Selling and buying fetal body parts is against federal law, a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000.

                                                                                                                          Planned Parenthood denies that they are selling fetal body parts, and claims that the money discussed is related to transportation costs.
