Last week we published an article showing the evidence that unvaccinated children are healthier than vaccinated children, and we featured several video testimonies from families where previously pro-vaccine parents changed their minds after viewing vaccine injuries in their children, and subsequently did not vaccinate future children, creating the perfect home ...

    New Study Shows Again that Unvaccinated Children are Healthier than Vaccinated Children

    Last week we published an article showing the evidence that unvaccinated children are healthier than vaccinated children, and we featured several video testimonies from families where previously pro-vaccine parents changed their minds after viewing vaccine injuries in their children, and subsequently did not vaccinate future children, creating the perfect home laboratory to observe the difference between vaccinated children and unvaccinated children.

    Last week, a new study was published in the journal SAGE Open Medicine titled:

    “Analysis of health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated children: Developmental delays, asthma, ear infections and gastrointestinal disorders.”

    It was authored by Dr. Brian Hooker and Neil Miller.

    Dr. Hooker is well-known to readers of Health Impact News, as we have featured his work many times over the years. He has done more than perhaps anyone in the U.S. to expose fraud at the CDC in regards to their vaccine studies that supposedly prove vaccines are not linked to autism.

      Doctors Gagged as Feds Launch Censorship Campaign

      The FDA, FTC, Department of Justice, and some state attorneys general have launched a coordinated censorship campaign that prevents medical and naturopathic doctors from communicating their extensive knowledge about how to stay healthy during the pandemic using natural medicine. The actions of these federal agencies will lead to more COVID-19 infections and death. We have to fight back to preserve our right to stay healthy, naturally.

      The FDA and FTC sent more than a hundred warning letters to doctors, clinics, and companies. These letters all allege that companies or individuals were 1) illegally advertising that certain products treat or prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) or related conditions, such as inflammation and/or 2) making claims on their websites implying that a product could mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19 or related conditions in people, making the product an unapproved drug under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

      In reviewing many of these letters, what becomes clear is that this isn’t about public health, but rather censoring scientific information about natural products and protecting the profits of drug companies. One letter was sent to a nutritionist who talked about the results of a recent study showing that the severity of coronavirus patient outcome was tied to the patient’s vitamin D status. The post concluded, “The bottom line? In order to give yourself the best defense against the coronavirus, begin with optimizing your vitamin D status to at least 30 ng/ml starting today.” Is vitamin D now a public health threat that the government must snuff out? Does the government really want to quash information that could help us stay healthy?

        Many parents feel that what we experienced at the hands of child welfare was unjust but that there’s nothing we can do about it. We wanted to find out if that was true, so we interviewed David Lansner, a family court lawyer in New York City and one of the few lawyers in the country that brings lawsuits against the child welfare system on behalf of individual parents and children. 

        Lansner explained that the bar for suing is very high. But he also told us about some parents and children who sued and won. And he gave us a lesson in history and government in the process.

            In March, I reported about an invasive microchip tattoo that was designed specifically to facilitate enforcement of children’s vaccination. The microchip technology was developed at the personal request of Bill Gates.

            I noted that “ultimately, such tattoos will facilitate enforcement of vaccination dictates.”

              Dr. Judy Mikovits and Dr. Sherri Tenpenny: A New COVID Vaccine Could Kill 50 Million People in the U.S.

              Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and Dr. Judy Mikovits have both been recent guests on LondonReal.tv, and interviewed by Brian Rose. LondonReal.tv recently had to develop their own video platform to beat the Facebook and Google YouTube censorship, as Brian Rose frequently interviews doctors and scientists the corporate media and Big Tech desperately want to censor.

              Dr. Mikovits was the first one interviewed, and during the course of that interview, Brian Rose asked her about the COVID-19 vaccine that is being fast-tracked, with some pharmaceutical companies saying they will have a vaccine by this fall.

              Dr. Mikovits discusses the absurdity of giving a COVID-19 vaccine to healthy people who would already most likely have natural immunity. She states:

              “So now you’re going to inject an agent, into every cell in the body. I just can’t even imagine a recipe for anything other than what I would consider mass murder on a scale where 50 million people will die in America from the vaccine.”

              About a week after Brian Rose interviewed Dr. Mikovits, he did a show with Dr. Sherri Tenpenny.

              He mentioned Dr. Mikovits’ prediction that if we went full steam ahead with this new COVID vaccine that 50 million people would die, and asked Dr. Tenpenny if she agreed.

              Not only did Dr. Tenpenny say she agreed with Dr. Mikovits’ prediction of deaths in the U.S. from a COVID vaccine, but she stated that there would also be many who are injured by the vaccine who might wish they were dead:

              “There are some things worse than death.”

                Unvaccinated Children are Healthier than Vaccinated Children - Most Censored Topic in the U.S.?

                “Vaccines are safe and effective.” “The science on vaccines is settled.”

                These statements are the official dogma of Big Pharma and the U.S Government health agencies, and anyone in the corporate media who has ever tried to challenge these statements of belief has been quickly silenced.

                Yet even to the casual reader with no invested interest in the topic, it would seem fairly obvious that these are statements of faith, and not scientific statements.

                How can a pharmaceutical product always be “safe and effective” for everyone? And how can the science on anything, let alone vaccines, ever be “settled”?

                And yet these beliefs are put forward as facts, and all dissenters, or even just those who dare to ask a question, are censored or labeled as “anti-vaxxers” or “quacks” if they happen to be a doctor or scientist.

                The fact that vaccines can and do cause injury and death in some situations is not even a debatable subject, as the U.S. Vaccine Court has paid out $BILLIONS in damages since the passage of the National Vaccine Compensation program passed in the 1980s, giving legal immunity to pharmaceutical companies who make vaccines, and can no longer be sued if a vaccine causes an injury or death.

                But even though this is public knowledge, and even though Health Impact News publishes the quarterly reports published by the Department of Justice listing settlements for vaccine injuries and deaths, we are censored and labeled as publishing “Fake News” by the Big Tech giants, like Facebook and Google.

                This is clearly information they do not want the public to know.

                But what about the second part of the belief that “vaccines are safe and effective?”

                Since we know that vaccines are not totally safe, and that this information is censored, it is totally appropriate to then ask the question: Are vaccines actually effective?

                What about overall health of children following the CDC vaccine schedule, as compared to children who do not receive all the vaccines in the CDC vaccine schedule?

                This is the one study that would solve this issue once and for all, but the U.S. government refuses to conduct such a trial, claiming it would be “unethical” to withhold vaccines from children.

                Those outside of the government who have tried to conduct such studies have been attacked and censored.

                We have featured doctors on Health Impact News over the years who have said that unvaccinated children in their practice are healthier than vaccinated children, and these doctors take great courage to speak publicly, because they are labeled as “quacks” and often face losing their medical license to practice for revealing this.

                Perhaps the most convincing evidence that unvaccinated children are healthier than vaccinated children, is from parents who observe both in their homes on a daily basis.

                These are mostly former pro-vaccine parents who never doubted vaccinations until they saw the effects of vaccines in their own children, and then decided to not vaccinate other children born later based on their experience with vaccines.

                These are actually very good “laboratories” because children in the same home experience much the same things in their environment, and any major differences in their health will be much more obvious.

                    Pharmaceutical Industry is the Leading Cause of Death in U.S., and the Largest Criminal Group in the World

                    Those of us who have been covering the dark side of the medical industry for the past decade or so are fully aware that the medical system kills more people in the U.S. than any disease, using the medical system’s own data.

                    This is seldom, if ever, published in the corporate media which is largely funded by the pharmaceutical industry today.

                    The other fact that is well-known to most of us in the alternative media is that the pharmaceutical industry leads the U.S. in criminal fraud.

                    According to the Department of Justice (DOJ) website, the pharmaceutical industry is the largest offender of criminal fraud based on settlements and judgments for the False Claims Act.

                    From 2009 through 2016, Health Care Fraud resulted in $19.3 billion for fraud, with “billions more during the same period for state Medicaid programs and in criminal fines and forfeitures.”

                    Housing and Financial Fraud was a distant second during the same time period, at $7 billion.

                    Richard Smith, editor of the British Medical Journal until 2004, wrote an opinion piece in 2013 about a book published by Peter Gøtzsche, the head of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, entitled “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare.”

                    The “largest fraud settlement in U.S. history” was against a pharmaceutical company:

                    On July 2, 2012 the British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline pled guilty to three counts of criminal misdemeanor and other civil liabilities relating to the prescription drugs Paxil, Wellbutrin and Avandia, and agreed to pay a total of $3 billion in fines–$1 billion to settle criminal charges, and $2 billion to cover civil liabilities.

                    The payment is the largest fraud settlement in U.S. history, and the largest fine ever paid by a drug company.

                    And these are the people we are being asked to trust to provide a COVID-19 cure with a new vaccine, when there is not convincing evidence that we even have an accurate test that can identify this “new” coronavirus.

                      How Bill Gates Controls Global Messaging and Censorship

                      Bill Gates is the world’s largest vaccine producer and the single largest donor to the World Health Organization (WHO)—since President Trump halted U.S. support pending an investigation of WHO’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis—and the CDC Foundation. Those agencies are now marketing arms for his vaccine empire.

                      In January of 2019, Gates had WHO declare “vaccine hesitancy” a top “global health threat” (with Ebola, HIV, war, and drug-resistant pathogens among others), signaling a worldwide Pharma Gold Rush to mandate vaccines to all people.

                      Gates maxed-out in donations to Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff’s PAC.

                      In February of 2019, Schiff wrote to Facebook, Google, and Amazon, demanding they censor “vaccine misinformation,” a term meaning all skepticism toward government and industry pronouncements about vaccine safety or efficacy—whether true or not.

                      “Vaccines are both effective and safe,” Schiff wrote. “There is no evidence to suggest that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling disease.”

                      This was misinformation.

                        Plandemic Stage 2: PlannedChaos - American Cities Become a War Zone Overnight

                        As the United States begins to open up their states from the Coronavirus Plandemic and begin the summer season, a new crisis now dominates the news cycle: the reactions to the horrible death of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of police.

                        Events are unfolding fast now, as protests have spread from Minneapolis to almost every major city in the U.S., something that probably has not been seen in the U.S. since the 1960s race riots.

                        Even the White House was locked down for a brief time yesterday, so strong were the protests.

                        The Governor of Minnesota has now “fully mobilized” the National Guard, a force of over 13,000, in the biggest deployment in the state’s history, and if the violence continues across the U.S., we can probably expect similar deployments in other states as well.

                        How could this happen?

                        In his press conference this morning (Saturday May 30th) Minnesota Governor Tim Walz stated:

                        “This is absolutely no longer about George Floyd or addressing inequities anymore. This is an organized attack designed to destabilize civil society.”

                        We are now seeing unprecedented events unfolding very quickly before our eyes, as our world rapidly changes. As I have noted in previous articles, you can throw out the term “Conspiracy Theory” now, because we are living through this, and it is quite obvious that for these events to happen as quickly as they are, there is a plan in place.

                        The only question unanswered at this point, is what is the next move of the Globalists, or what many people call the “Deep State?”

                        Because every time they create a crisis, they have a planned solution in place to combat the fear that the crisis presents, all in the name of keeping everyone “safe.”

                        Read the full article to discover what my thoughts are on what this next move could possibly be.

                          The New World Order: Creating a Crisis so the Rich Get Richer While Millions Lose Their Jobs

                          Earlier this week I published a report about how the plan to develop a “New World Order” through the United Nations is no longer a conspiracy “theory,” as the plans have been published, and the whole coronavirus response has been exposed as a “Plandemic.”

                          One of the major results of the Plandemic has been that the world’s wealthiest people have instantly increased their wealth, while at the same time millions have lost their jobs, and tens of thousands of small businesses have failed.

                          Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. reported earlier this week:

                          “This nationwide, extended quarantine has permanently shuttered over 100,000 small businesses, cost 38 million jobs and 27 million Americans their health care. The Super Rich elite are flourishing while a despairing middle class flounders. According to a report by Americans for Tax Fairness, billionaires are watching their wealth compound beyond imagination.

                          Between March 18, when lockdown began, and May 19, the combined net worth of Bill Gates (Microsoft), Jeff Bezos (Amazon) Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway) and Larry Ellison (Oracle) grew by $75.5 billion. According to Forbes data, the total wealth of the 630 U.S. billionaires jumped by $434 billion—15%—from $2.948 trillion to $3.382 trillion. Tech stocks are the most bullish about the Surveillance State. Microsoft (Bing), Facebook and Amazon are facilitating our devolution into militarized oligarchy by enforcing censorship against all expressions of dissent.”

                          Dr. Ron Paul, a former U.S. Congressman, says that the “Deep State” is able to do this through the Central Banking of the Federal Reserve, as the Globalists control the world’s monetary supply. He explains how without the Federal Reserve, and their ability to create money out of thin air, the coronavirus response never could have been accomplished.

                          Dr. Paul covered the Federal Reserve’s role in the Plandemic in his daily broadcast today, The Liberty Report.

                          And now just this week a new crisis has emerged that has destroyed businesses in one major city already, and threatens to expand across the nation because of the tragic death of a young man that was filmed and broadcast around the country due to police brutality.

                            Texas Homeschool Families Take Back Their Public Park and Defy Orders to Leave as Police Back Down

                            Daniel McAdams writes about how his family and a group of about 35 people who are all homeschool families in Texas took their children to the local park to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, and tore down police tape that tried to prevent them from using a public park.

                            They knew that neither the police nor anyone else had any legal authority to close the park or rope it off like that.

                            Two police came and asked them to leave, and they responded the way every person in the U.S. should respond to such coronavirus edicts that have no legal authority: They stood their ground and refused to leave. They even rebuked the officer who asked them if they were “anti-vaxxers,” as if that had anything to do with playing in the park!

                            The police did not dare arrest such a large group, especially with mothers holding their babies in their arms, so after conferring with the chief of police, they concluded that they could stay.

                            What a great lesson for these homeschooled children on how to stand up against tyranny! Now if we could just get the rest of the country to follow their example, we could get this economy up and running again very quickly. 

                            Tyrants need a compliant public to get their way, so what are you waiting for America! Does liberty mean anything to you anymore?

                            Oh, and by the way, the name of the park in Texas where this happened? Freedom Park.

                              The Fear-Driven Agenda of the Plandemic's Next Move: Contact Tracing to Track the Movement of All People as Privacy Disappears

                              As I have been reporting here at Health Impact News for the past couple of days, the worldwide success of the coronavirus Plandemic to control the population has made the Globalists very bold, so that they are moving fast now, and not even trying to hide their agenda.

                              Instead, they are relying on the masses to continue being fed by the corporate propaganda machine in both the News media as well as the Entertainment industry, to continue the Plandemic fear to the next phases of establishing a New World Order.

                              For those who have “ears to hear,” and “eyes to see,” the time to resist is now, before this progresses much further.

                              And while great attention has been focused on the COVID vaccine that they want to inject into the entire world’s population, the COVID vaccine is NOT the next phase of their agenda.

                              They probably know that almost a third of the U.S. population right now is fearful of a fast-tracked COVID vaccine, and a federally mandated COVID vaccine is probably not in the near future, if at all.

                              Other than the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act passed by President Ronald Reagan, there are no federal vaccine laws that I am aware of. Mandatory vaccination laws are a state issue, and every state in the U.S. currently has some kind of law mandating childhood vaccines as a requirement for school attendance, especially public education schools.

                              The vaccine resistance has been very strong in the U.S. for many years now, and there will be many battles at the state level if this is tried, and as always, unfortunately, it will mainly be the poor minorities who do not have the economic means to resist and are tied into the public health and public educational systems that will be forced to comply to continue receiving publicly funded services.

                              This is part of the eugenics movement that started in the U.S. prior to WWII, and was carried out to extreme ends in Nazi Germany. I will write more about this in future articles, but for now you can read previous articles we have published over the years that show the eugenics movement has never died out – it has simply been renamed due to the negative social stigmatism to the word “eugenics.” Some of these articles are over 5 years old now, but still very relevant given the current times. (Links provided inside the article.)

                              But with a COVID vaccine still looming off in the distance, the plan in the immediate future, which has already been put into existence, is the plan to be able to track the movements of every single person in society through “contact tracing.”

                              We have previously reported on this, and in the proposed bill in the U.S. House of Representatives, H.R. 6666.

                              Independent journalist Ben Swann has just published another report on contact tracing, showing that devices to do this are already in the marketplace and available for use.

                                Resisting the New World Order: Face Mask Shaming - Hypocrisy in the Corporate Media and a Doctor Speaks Out AGAINST Face Masks

                                Yesterday we reported how the Globalists working through the United Nations are no longer hiding the fact that they want to usher in a “New World Order,” and that we can now remove the word “theory” from the pejorative term “Conspiracy Theories” when discussing this agenda.

                                The 2020 Coronavirus Plandemic has been their most successful campaign to date in their agenda to establish this “New World Order.”

                                If you are reading alternative news from sites like Health Impact News, you are in a position to resist these efforts to radically change our way of life, and become part of the resistance movement that is gaining speed.

                                Today we revisit the topic of face masks, and face mask shaming.

                                As we discussed yesterday, the corporate propaganda media is controlled by these Globalists, and after initially stating that face masks were not necessary during the early days of the Plandemic, they are now joining forces together to try and make these masks mandatory, and shaming anyone who does not comply.

                                Recently, a reporter for the corporate media was in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, a tourist area in the southern part of the state that draws many summer tourists from Chicago and Illinois.

                                Wisconsin was the first state in the U.S. to challenge the governor’s coronavirus policies in court, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court declared them unconstitutional, allowing businesses to immediately reopen, and for people to leave their homes and go about their business.

                                Therefore, they are a target now for the corporate propaganda media, who attempted to send a national reporter there to shame them.

                                The reporter from MSNBC, Cal Perry, was trying to shame people in Wisconsin for walking outdoors in the fresh air with no face masks.

                                But in these days of cell phone cameras where any citizen can become an instant on-the-scene reporter, a passerby who was being criticized for not wearing a face mask, turned around and filmed the MSNBC film crew who were “behind the scenes” with Cal Perry, showing that half of them were not even wearing face masks either.

                                Multiple copies of the encounter which clearly exposes the agenda of the corporate propaganda media are now all over Facebook and YouTube.

                                Another citizen on-the-scene reporter with their cell phone camera captured a scene inside a New York grocery store, where a woman who entered the store without a face mask incurred the wrath of the other shoppers, that they began shouting at her and chased her out of the store, so great was their fear over the virus.

                                When this happens, the Globalists trying to setup their New World Order are winning.

                                President Trump, for whatever reason, seems reluctant to wear a face mask in public, and has even said publicly that in the situations where he does wear one, he does it outside of the cameras of the media. When visiting an auto plant in Michigan recently, he stated that in the situations where it was appropriate to wear it, he:

                                “didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.”

                                Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has flip flopped himself on this issue, recently stated that one of his motivations for wearing one is:

                                “because I want to make it be a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing.”

                                Dr. Alan Palmer, a practicing chiropractor for 30 years, has written a very extensive analysis of the medical data behind wearing face masks at Children’s Health Defense, and we include it here.

                                He joins many other doctors, many of them medical doctors, across the U.S. who are saying the same thing, such as Dr. Andrew Kaufman, a psychiatrist who lost his job because he refused to wear a face mask, and has declared publicly that he is willing to go to jail to resist the agenda of the Globalists.

                                  The UN "New World Order" Has Now Been Published: No Longer a "Conspiracy Theory" - Out of the Shadows

                                  Now that we are a few months into the global Coronavirus event, it is time to pause for a minute and consider how we got here, and why.

                                  First, if you have been following Health Impact News throughout this entire time, you will know that this was a planned event, and therefore it is not a true “pandemic,” but what many now in the alternative media are calling a “plandemic.”

                                  Those who have been warning for many years that there is a concentrated global group of powerful people who want a global one-world government to control and rule every single person on the planet have been tagged with the pejorative term “conspiracy theorist,” a term thought to be first used by the CIA labeling people who did not believe the official media and government reports on President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas in 1963.

                                  However, during the height of the plandemic this past March, with almost no mention in the corporate media, the United Nations published a new website called:

                                  The United Nations New World Order.

                                  They issued a Press Release via PR Newswire:

                                  United Nations NWO (UNNWO) Launches COVID 19 Coronavirus Focused International Day of Happiness 2020 Campaign Theme HAPPINESS FOR ALL TOGETHER.

                                  The desire of a group of very powerful people to establish a one-world government, which also requires reducing the size of the world’s population to a more controllable size, is no longer a “conspiracy theory.”

                                  They are no longer hiding their intentions, and one of their leaders in particular, Bill Gates, is being courted by the corporate media and bringing his desires and intentions out into the open with seemingly no fear whatsoever.

                                  Will they succeed?

                                      Tennessee City Joins Growing List of Communities Opposing 5G Installations

                                      People worldwide – including elected officials – are opposed to 5G being installed in their communities because of risks to biological health, cybersecurity, environmental health, privacy, safety, and more.  Many cities and countries have taken action including banning it, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions, etc.  This now includes Farragut, TN.

                                      Farragut Tennessee has approved a resolution calling on state and federal governments to halt 5G until health risks are evaluated by “sound science.”  The resolution details how FCC limits are outdated and considered inadequate to protect human health by many scientists.

                                      The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom history.  Despite opposition and warnings, they are using the pandemic as an excuse to speed up 5G installation.  This includes launching tens of thousands of satellites with millions of antennas to blast 5G and WiFi at us from space.  Lawsuits have been filed against them for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation and 5G.

                                        As Drugs Fail, Natural Solutions to COVID-19 Ignored by Government

                                        Many COVID drugs are failing. Natural medicine may hold the key—but can government cronyism be overcome?

                                        A large analysis has found that antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine had no benefit for COVID patients, causing more deaths than standard care. Other pharmaceutical treatments are also turning out to be useless. Emerging evidence suggests that natural medicines like zinc, quercetin, and potassium could help, sometimes in conjunction with drugs, but the government refuses to acknowledge these benefits because nutrients aren’t as profitable for drug companies.

                                        While hydroxychloroquine may be ineffective on its own, there are trials that have combined the drug with zinc. Zinc inhibits viral activity, but it is difficult to get high levels of zinc into cells. Hydroxychloroquine may help by aiding zinc’s entry into cells. Studies show quercetin may also do what chloroquine does with zinc but without toxic side effects. Some researchers believe that zinc in general is one of the most important things we can take both to avoid Covid-19 infection and treat it. Hydroxychloroquine comes with the usual laundry list of dangerous side effects, while quercetin could help prevent heart damage along with many other benefits.

                                        Research indicates that many other natural medicines could help prevent or treat COVID-19.

                                          Healing Power of Light: Why Viruses Thrive in Winter but Not Summer

                                          The COVID-19 situation has drawn the attention of the world to the subject of “viruses.” What are viruses, how does one treat them, and other such questions are highly controversial with very many different viewpoints.

                                          One fact that seems to be agreed upon by everyone, is that viruses, at least the kind of “influenza” type of viruses that are seasonal, are a problem in the winter months, but not so much during the summer months.

                                          Since daylight hours are extended during the summer, most of the research on this topic has surrounded Vitamin D, a vitamin best obtained from the sun.

                                          But there is much more to this topic of “light,” and its effect on human health, than just Vitamin D.

                                          Given how much attention has been given to the “coronavirus” topic, it is time to look at this issue more closely to see if there are factors during the shorter daylight winter times that can be studied and understood to improve our health during this time, without always looking for a drug or vaccine to cure everything.

                                          So I assigned this topic to Health Impact News independent researcher and writer Crystal Lauer. She took over a month to research the topic.

                                          During that time, President Trump and a team of researchers working with William Bryan in the Science and Technology division of the Department of Homeland Security, announced results of some their own studies within their laboratory looking at the effects of “solar radiation” and its effect on the Coronavirus, which seems to confirm that some of the research presented in this article may apply to COVID-19.

                                          Of course, since this is a preventive measure with no patented drugs involved, the studies were quickly condemned by the medical industry, and an off comment made about disinfectants was what the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media decided to focus on instead.

                                          While Crystal was hesitant at first to spend so much time researching this topic, being a busy homeschool mother, in the end she reported that based on her research, her family made some big changes to their lifestyles to take better advantage of the healing power of natural light, and as a result she reported:

                                          “We found that we all are sleeping better, have much more mental energy and are overall feeling far more relaxed, even in the midst of this pandemic.”

                                            The Carnivore Diet Gains in Popularity Due to Health Benefits

                                            Dr. Paul Saladino trained at the University of Arizona with a focus on integrative medicine. He completed his residency in psychiatry at the University of Washington in 2019, and is a certified functional medicine practitioner through the Institute for Functional Medicine.

                                            In this interview, Saladino discusses the surprising benefits of the carnivore diet, which is the topic of his new book, “The Carnivore Code,” which is currently available for preorder.

                                            I view him as one of the leading experts on the health benefits of an animal-based diet. Saladino takes it to the extreme, though, advocating a carnivore diet to the exclusion of all vegetables or plant materials, which may strike many as debatable.

                                            The evidence he presents for it, however, is quite compelling. I don’t know anyone personally who has reviewed the literature more carefully and can put together a coherent argument for this strategy. (This is in part a side-effect of having gone through the basic medical sciences twice, as he went through medical school to be a physician’s assistant and later an M.D.)

                                            Saladino is likely to challenge your beliefs in this interview. This is not meant to offend anyone. If you believe you should avoid animal foods for ethical reasons, that’s certainly your choice. If you’re struggling with health issues that a vegetarian diet has not been able to resolve, however, or perhaps even made your condition worse, you may want to listen to what he has to say.

                                              Study: Soybean Oil Linked to Neurological Conditions Like Autism, Alzheimer's Disease, Anxiety, Depression

                                              New UC Riverside research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression.

                                              Used for fast food frying, added to packaged foods, and fed to livestock, soybean oil is by far the most widely produced and consumed edible oil in the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In all likelihood, it is not healthy for humans.

                                              It certainly is not good for mice. The new study, published this month in the journal Endocrinology, compared mice fed three different diets high in fat: soybean oil, soybean oil modified to be low in linoleic acid, and coconut oil.

                                              “The dogma is that saturated fat is bad and unsaturated fat is good. Soybean oil is a polyunsaturated fat, but the idea that it’s good for you is just not proven,” Sladek said.

                                              Indeed, coconut oil, which contains saturated fats, produced very few changes in the hypothalamic genes.

                                                How the Dairy Mafia Destroyed Dairy Farmers

                                                In November 2019, Dean Foods, one of the biggest dairy companies in the U.S., announced it had filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, sending a wave of uncertainty through an already shaky milk industry. Dean Foods was one of the primary milk processors and distributers in the U.S., purchasing milk directly from dairy farms.

                                                Many are asking what “killed” Dean Foods?

                                                Dean Foods president and CEO Eric Beringause said in a statement, “Despite our best efforts to make our business more agile and cost-efficient, we continue to be impacted by a challenging operating environment marked by continuing declines in consumer milk consumption.”

                                                What’s truly responsible for this decline, however, is the shift of milk from a fresh, wholesome raw food to one that’s ultraprocessed, homogenized and the product of concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).

                                                Rather than forcing dirty and dangerous CAFOs to clean up their acts, the FDA has waged a war against raw milk producers — those who are typically producing milk using far healthier, more humane and more sustainable methods than the industrial dairy industry ever could.

                                                As CAFOs became the norm for dairy farms (even in idyllic-seeming dairy states like Vermont), farmers were forced to grow their herds and increase milk production using artificial (drug and hormone-based) methods, among others (like feeding cows an unnatural amount of grain-based food, 24-hour confinement and increased number of milkings per day).

                                                Meanwhile, some people who experience gastrointestinal upset or other health problems when drinking regular CAFO dairy do fine when drinking raw, organic grass fed milk, which is far easier on your digestive system. Raw, grass fed A2-only milk may be even more ideal.

                                                In the U.S., raw milk is the only food banned from interstate commerce, which means small farmers cannot transport it across state lines, and even in states where farmers are allowed to sell raw milk directly to consumers from their farms, advertising bans may be put in place, allowing farmers to be punished with fines or jail time if they advertise their raw milk for sale.

                                                  Plant-based meat products seem to be all the rage. They are billed as a healthier, more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional meat, and the fad is catching on. Fast-food giant Burger King has announced the “Impossible Whopper,” a meatless version of their popular sandwich.

                                                  What you probably haven’t been told is that these plant-based meats are made possible through a new form of genetic engineering that has undergone virtually no safety testing.

                                                  Once again, the American consumer will be Big Food’s guinea pig—unless we speak up.

                                                    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.

                                                        In South America, it has been supposed that “Good broth can resurrect the dead.” In Greece, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, recommended steaming bowls of broth for his digestion-impaired patients, approximately 2,400 years ago. 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.

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

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

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

                                                                Last week (April, 2020), we published a report on the state of America’s hospital system in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak, and I wrote then:

                                                                “The so-called Coronavirus pandemic crisis is very quickly taking a back seat to more serious crises in the U.S. right now, and perhaps none more critical than the closure of hospitals and emergency rooms, along with doctors and nurses being laid off, which is happening all across the country.”

                                                                The other crisis facing the U.S. right now that may soon dwarf the Coronavirus “crisis” is the nation’s looming meat shortage.

                                                                The nation now faces meat shortages, America’s primary source of protein, as processing plants across the country have shut down or reduced operations. 80% of the U.S. meat processing plants are owned by only 4 companies. Some grocery stores have already begun to limit meat purchases in advance of the expected shortages.

                                                                At recent White House Coronavirus Task Force Press briefings, the nation has heard President Trump boast about how he had brokered a trade deal with China back in January of 2020, that includes China buying $12.5 billion of American agricultural products. Trump has been highlighting this as a great deal for American farmers.

                                                                So which agricultural products did China choose to increase in purchase and export to China after Trump negotiated the trade deal between the two countries back in January?

                                                                Pork seems to be at the head of the list.

                                                                China has had major pork supply problems since last year (2019), due to an outbreak of “African swine fever.” Some estimates claim that about two-thirds of China’s swine herd has been lost to the disease.

                                                                So being forced by President Trump into purchasing agricultural products as part of his trade deal, it is no surprise that pork is at the top of the list of exports China wanted.

                                                                U.S. livestock reports for last week (last week of April, 2020) show a five-week high in U.S. pork exports to China.

                                                                “The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported export sales of U.S. pork in the week ended April 23 at 50,300 tonnes, a three-week high. China was the top buyer, booking 35,138 tonnes, while actual pork shipments to China totaled 20,683 tonnes, the most in five weeks.”

                                                                As U.S. pork sales soar due to the growing export market to China, U.S. customers are having an increasingly difficult time finding pork in their grocery stores, which may soon be bare of any pork products at all.

                                                                One has to wonder who got the better end of this trade deal with China?

                                                                  With Meat Shortages Looming Renewed Calls to Repeal Federal Ban on Sale of Meat from Custom Slaughterhouses

                                                                  In the last week, the media headlines have included concerns about possible meat shortages. Livestock farmers and ranchers across the country are verging on bankruptcy – while consumers are facing increasing prices and empty shelves in the groceries.

                                                                  Texas state officials are reportedly advising Texas ranchers how to depopulate and dispose of their beef, while at the same time beef is still being imported into the U.S. from other countries.

                                                                  With hundreds of millions of livestock and poultry in this country, why are we having these problems?

                                                                  COVID-19 is not the reason for the problems, it’s just the straw that is breaking the camel’s back in our deeply flawed food system. Four companies control processing of over 80% of the country’s beef, and four companies control processing of two-thirds of the country’s pork. The consolidation has led to most meat being processed at massive plants where as many as 400 cattle are slaughtered an hour. Workers in these facilities labor under very difficult and often unsafe conditions – and that’s before you add in the issue of a highly contagious disease.

                                                                  Yet the government regulations are designed for these massive, industrial-scale facilities, making it difficult or sometimes even impossible for small-scale facilities to comply. And federal law requires that “state inspected” facilities use the exact same USDA standards, leaving no flexibility for states to develop standards better suited to small operators.

                                                                  So we have a shortage of small-scale processors in this country, and small-scale livestock farmers have few places they can take their animals for processing. In some areas of the country, the nearest USDA or equivalent state facility may be several hours’ drive away or more.

                                                                  There are alternatives, known as “custom slaughterhouses,” which legally operate in many states. But the meat from them can only be provided back to – and consumed by the family of – the person who owned the animal when it entered the slaughterhouse. A consumer who is not able to pay for and store hundreds of pounds of meat in one order is unable to access the meat from a custom slaughterhouse. And a farmer who wants to sell his or her beef, lamb, goat, or pork to consumers at a local farmers’ market or other local outlet cannot use a custom slaughterhouse.

                                                                  The PRIME Act, H.R. 2859/ S.1620, addresses this problem and can help with both the short-term crisis and the long-term change we need in our food system. TAKE ACTION TO SUPPORT THIS IMPORTANT BILL.

                                                                    We discussed how allowing local communities to directly access meat from farmers and ranchers in their own counties and states was the solution to food security issues in our nation’s meat supplies.

                                                                    The publication Civil Eats has done an excellent job of reporting on these kinds of problems that are systemic within our nation’s food supply chains.

                                                                    In another excellent investigative report on flour shortages that many are starting to see around the country, Amy Halloran has written an excellent article titled:

                                                                    In yet another excellent article published by Civil Eats, Jodi Helmer wrote a report titled:

                                                                    “Restaurants Are Transforming into Grocery Stores to Survive the Pandemic: Selling sought-after eggs, flour, and toilet paper directly to consumers has provided an ‘emergency transfusion’ for restaurants.”

                                                                    In our article about Wyoming’s Food Freedom Act and the nation’s meat supply issues, we mentioned how the closing of restaurants and other venues that serve food, such as sporting and entertainment events, was what was putting a strain on the meat market supplies.

                                                                    With the entire nation confined to their homes and unable to visit restaurants and other venues where food is served, this in turn created a huge demand for more food at grocery stores, while bulk food distributors were left with an excess of inventory that was not packaged properly for retail sales.

                                                                    Helmer’s article documents how some restaurants have dealt with this situation while solving two problems at once: providing more business for their restaurant so they could stay in business, and providing much needed items to their consumers that they could not find in their local grocery stores, such as eggs, flour, and toilet paper.

                                                                    What is the answer to the food security issue facing our nation?

                                                                    • Galloway cows brown

                                                                      Earlier this week (April, 2020), U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, appeared at the White House Coronavirus Task Force press conference to explain why the country is facing some food shortages, such as meats, in grocery stores, even though there is plenty of food in the country.

                                                                      The problem is the commodity-based food distribution system, which is experiencing bottle necks right now due to restaurants and other food establishments being shut down across the country due to the coronavirus restrictions.

                                                                      A significant portion of commodity-based food sales is processed, packaged, and distributed for businesses, and not for consumers who purchase food in stores and supermarkets.

                                                                      So with the decline in food sales to businesses, there has also been a corresponding demand for food in grocery stores from consumers who would normally be eating more at restaurants, schools, ball parks, and work places.

                                                                      There are a lot of businesses that get a piece of the pie that is our food system here in the U.S., controlling the flow of food from the farm to the consumer.

                                                                      When everything is going well, it is like a high-speed train going from one destination to another. And most of the food you see in your grocery store, or eat at institutions, is heavily subsidized by taxpayers as well, keeping food cheap, and not representing the true cost to produce that food.

                                                                      But when a crisis hits the nation, such as the current coronavirus pandemic, it just takes one section of the train to derail and cause the entire system to start failing, and potentially to completely derail.

                                                                      And the effects we are seeing today as a result of the nationwide lock downs, are really a small problem in the grand scheme of things when it comes to food distribution in this country.

                                                                      Just think of what the effects could potentially look like if, for example, transportation was disrupted due to energy disruptions, or communication was disrupted due to electrical grid issues, or telecommunication issues.

                                                                      This is mild in comparison to what might happen, for example, if the country found itself in a real war, and not a “war” on a virus, where an enemy could bring down the power grid, disrupt the Internet, etc.

                                                                      This should be a wake up call that our nation’s food distribution system is incredibly vulnerable.

                                                                        The Bill Melinda Gates Foundation is the largest charitable foundation in the world, with a trust endowment valued at $48 billion and yearly grant payments in excess of $5 billion annually. In addition to being one of the largest contributors to the World Health Organization (WHO), with heavy involvement in global public health, the Gates Foundation is deeply involved in agricultural development.

                                                                        It’s a noble cause but one that’s being carried out using an agenda that supports agrochemicals, patented seeds and corporate control — interests that undermine regenerative, sustainable, small-scale farming.

                                                                        In a report by Global Justice Now, the excessive global influence held by the Gates Foundation is illustrated, starting with the $2 billion the foundation has spent on agriculture, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

                                                                        “It is the world’s fifth largest donor to agriculture, spending $389 million in 2013; only Germany, Japan, Norway and the U.S. have larger bilateral aid programs to agriculture,” the report noted, and, “With funding comes in influence.”

                                                                        Indeed, in February 2012, when the Gates Foundation announced a $200 million donation to the International Fund for Agricultural Development, Gates talked of the importance of brining “agricultural science and technology to poor farmers.” These are buzzwords that imply genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and biotechnology, which are heavily favored by the Gates Foundation.

                                                                        • monsanto-bayer-merger

                                                                          A California shareholder of Bayer AG on Friday filed a lawsuit against the companies’ top executives claiming they breached their duty of “prudence” and “loyalty” to the company and investors by buying Monsanto Co. in 2018, an acquisition the suit claims has “inflicted billions of dollars of damages” on the company.

                                                                          Plaintiff Rebecca R. Haussmann, trustee of the Konstantin S. Haussmann Trust, is the sole named plaintiff in the suit, which was filed in New York County Supreme Court.  The named defendants include Bayer CEO Werner Baumann, who orchestrated the $63 billion Monsanto purchase, and Bayer Chairman Werner Wenning, who announced last month he was stepping down from the company earlier than planned. The suit claims that Wenning’s decision came after Bayer improperly obtained a copy of the then-draft shareholder lawsuit “through corporate espionage.”

                                                                          The lawsuit also claims that Bayer’s recent announcement of an audit of its acquisition actions is “bogus” and “part of the ongoing cover-up and intended to create a legal barrier to this case to protect Defendants from their accountability…”

                                                                            The number of farmers seeking legal representation to file suit against Monsanto and BASF has surged over the last week and a half after a staggering $265 million jury award to a Missouri peach farmer who alleged the two companies were to blame for the loss of his livelihood, according to Joseph Peiffer of the Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane law firm. Peiffer said more than 2,000 farmers are likely to become plaintiffs.

                                                                              A jury awarded $265 million in punitive damages against Bayer and BASF to a southeastern Missouri peach farmer who argued that weedkiller dicamba that had drifted onto his orchards from other farms had severely damaged his trees.

                                                                              The punitive damages awarded to farmer Bill Bader came a day after the jury awarded him $15 million in actual damages, agreeing with his argument that dicamba had drifted over from other farms and severely damaged Bader Farms, which is one of the largest peach farms in Missouri. Bader’s attorneys argued that his trees likely wouldn’t survive the dicamba exposure.

                                                                              The owners of Bader Farms alleged the companies conspired to create an “ecological disaster” that would induce farmers to buy dicamba-tolerant seeds.

Glyphosate-induced kidney toxicity has been associated with disturbances in the expression of genes associated with fibrosis, necrosis and mitochondrial membrane dysfunction.

                                                                                Further, as noted by the Environmental Pollution study researchers, “Previous studies have associated glyphosate exposure with changes in renal function, kidney injury, and chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology. There is growing evidence linking glyphosate exposure with the epidemic of chronic kidney disease of unknown origin in farmworkers in Central America, Sri Lanka and central India.”

                                                                                Dr. Sarath Gunatilake, professor of health science at the University of California and Channa Jayasumana, Ph.D., a faculty member of Medicine and Allied Sciences at the Rajarata University of Sri Lanka, have published papers linking glyphosate exposure to chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu) in Sri Lankan farmers.

                                                                                  Last year (2019), a report published by The Environmental Working Group (EWG) showed that virtually all of America’s breakfast cereals, consumed primarily by children, are contaminated with the toxic herbicide, glyphosate.

                                                                                  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 week, EWG is reporting that Kellogg is pledging to stop using glyphosate in the harvesting of grains by 2025.

                                                                                  Kellogg’s pledged to work with its wheat and oat suppliers to end the use of the herbicide, sold under the name Roundup, as a pre-harvest drying agent in all of its major crop markets, including the U.S., by 2025, according to a statement published on the company’s website and reported on by the Washington Post.

                                                                                  While this is encouraging news that Kellogg will eventually phase out its usage of glyphosate, it is impossible for any company producing products from American grains to remove glyphosate from their products today. Even getting the other cereal producers like General Mills and Quaker to stop their grain farmers from using glyphosate to desiccate will not solve the problem.

                                                                                  The reason for this is because even USDA certified organic grains in the U.S. today are contaminated with glyphosate, as are conventional crops that do not spray their crops with glyphosate at harvest.

                                                                                  So how do you find food that is not contaminated with glyphosate?

                                                                                        It was 2003 when the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) coronavirus broke out in China. It infected over 7000 people in China with over 600 recorded deaths.

                                                                                        Even with its close proximity to China and large Chinese population in the Philippine nation of about 80 million people, only 14 cases of SARS was reported with two recorded deaths.

                                                                                        Canada, many thousands of miles away, had far more cases and more deaths recorded due to SARS infection from China than neighboring Philippine Islands.

                                                                                        One of the theories put forward at the time as to why the Filipino people had so few cases, was the country’s predominant use of cooking oil: Coconut Oil.

                                                                                        The Philippines is the world’s largest producer of coconut oil, with about 70% of the world’s coconut oil being exported from the country.

                                                                                        The medium chain fatty acids of coconut oil, and primarily lauric acid, have been known to destroy enveloped viruses by researchers for many years.

                                                                                        Dr. Fabian Dayrit, Ph.D. and Dr. Mary Newport, M.D. have just published a paper regarding coconut oil’s potential to also combat the new coronavirus currently infecting people in China.

                                                                                          Nature’s next most abundant source of lauric acid, human breast milk, comes in a distant second.

                                                                                          For years now, research (primarily outside of the U.S.) on coconut oil has focused on the use of lauric acid as an adjunct or replacement for antibiotic drugs that have lost their effectiveness due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens.

                                                                                          2019 has seen more studies published where coconut oil is studied in this context: how to deal with the emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens, and the decreasing effectiveness of antibiotic drugs.

                                                                                          A Japanese study published in the journal Cell Transplant was especially promising, as it showed that lauric acid could potentially be used as a broad spectrum anti-microbiological agent without disrupting the “good bacteria” in the human gut microbiota.

                                                                                          • Composition with coconut oil in jar on white background

                                                                                            Study: Lauric Acid from Coconut Oil Proves a Promising Weapon in the Fight Against Antibiotic Resistant Infection with Severe Burns

                                                                                            Lauric acid, found predominately in coconut oil, may be a powerful tool in the prevention of infection and promote wound regeneration in severe burn patients, according to a recent study. Along with research that has previously shown the effectiveness of the use of lauric acid in combatting barrier-disrupting issues, the future for the use of saturated fatty acid in inhibiting infectious Gram-positive microbial bacteria and in skin barrier restoration is promising.

                                                                                            A mere thirty years ago patients who had sustained burns over 50% of their body were given little to no hope of survival, a history which stands in stark contrast to the current status where people who have sustained burns covering even ninety percent of their bodies are now capable of recovery, albeit often with serious disabilities. 

                                                                                            The increase in survival rates is directly related to the advances made in specialized burn care by the medical community, with better fluid resuscitation, nutritional support, pulmonary care, wound care and infection control playing critical roles.

                                                                                            Still, in patients whose burns cover over 40% of the entire body, approximately seventy-five percent of deaths are largely attributable to sepsis from infected wounds or complications derived from infection. 

                                                                                            Because the damaged tissue, which in its healthy state would act as a protective barrier, is seriously compromised in burn victims, topical antibiotics are necessary in keeping the moist wounds from becoming hotbeds of infection. The increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria strains is creating a necessity for researchers to identify substances that are both antibacterial and regenerative.

                                                                                            Lauric acid, with its anti-viral and anti-microbial properties, is one such substance that researchers are hopeful may fit the above criteria perfectly.

                                                                                              With Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) on the rise, and its clear relationship to unmanaged blood sugar and blood pressure unquestioned, virgin coconut oil is proving a valuable addition to the fight with ameliorate kidney function parameters in suffers of CKD and can even be protective for those at risk for the disease.

                                                                                              Lowering your risk for kidney dysfunction rests largely on lifestyle changes, but for change to occur in something so entrenched as an individual’s lifestyle, there is a need for impetus, and despite the fact that over 37 million people in the US alone are estimated to have CKD, many of those are completely unaware of the slippery slope they are currently on or headed towards.

                                                                                              It’s interesting that virgin coconut oil, which is often a prominent part of a healthy ketogenic diet, also shows promise in studies as a potential therapy in the treatment and prevention of kidney dysfunction.

                                                                                              Perhaps the only thing standing in the way of discovering the full benefits of virgin coconut oil in the treatment of chronic kidney disease and fully embracing it, is our society’s ingrained acceptance of long held and poorly supported nutritional doctrine.

                                                                                              Luckily in the cases of kidney function and diabetes, science is confirming that there is hope to be found in change… and that a couple of tablespoons of virgin coconut oil consumed daily may be just the place to start.

                                                                                                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.

                                                                                                  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.”

                                                                                                      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.

In some sectors, such as the restaurant industry, it is estimated that more than 50% of these small businesses will never re-open.

                                                                                                        Today I am going to write about one of the largest groups of small businesses that have also been hit hard by closing down during this “crisis” – the American Christian Church.

Hence, they are corporations setup just like other American businesses, requiring licenses and subject to the laws of the U.S. and their respective states.

                                                                                                        As we have seen recently, the government authorities can shut them down farily easily.

It is a living organism of believers not dependent on any business, and the leader is Jesus who rules from Heaven and empowers his people with supernatural power.

                                                                                                        This organism is not so easily defeated, if they function together as a body.

                                                                                                          Facebook, for example, took strong actions against Health Impact News by claiming we were publishing “fake news,” mainly by publishing the views of Dr. Andrew W. Saul, Editor of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, who published news about successful intravenous Vitamin C therapy which had started in China.

                                                                                                          And yet this week, the New York Post reported that the same therapy had started at hospitals in New York City.

                                                                                                          With the Coronavirus situation affecting virtually every single person on the planet right now, suppressing alternative information that goes against the “mainstream” narrative is a very dangerous precedent, and is a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment which protects freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

                                                                                                          It is especially concerning when one of my colleagues in the alternative media, without even contacting me directly, publicly demands that we retract one of our articles authored by a medical doctor, simply because this person believes his view of the current situation is the only correct view.

                                                                                                          I do not pretend to be an expert on medical science, which is why Health Impact News publishes alternative views by medical doctors and other scientists who are experts in their field.

                                                                                                          During difficult days like the ones currently facing us, I believe the public has a right to read all sides of the issue and make up their own minds. Caution is certainly prudent, but fear?

                                                                                                          Among all this fear, where is faith in God?

                                                                                                          The opposite of fear is “faith.”

                                                                                                          Have we lost our way as a nation? Does the phrase inscribed on our currency “In God we Trust” mean anything anymore?

                                                                                                          Faith in God does NOT mean we will not face difficult times. On the contrary, often those who are most faithful face the most difficult trials in life.

                                                                                                          Faith in God means we trust that there is a stronger power than ourselves controlling the affairs of humanity, and that if we trust in him, he will give us the strength to endure whatever trials come our way.

                                                                                                          • Problems

They then underwent artificial insemination, resulting in early pregnancy with multiple embryos, which were then flushed out of their bodies for study.

                                                                                                            This “experiment” was very wrong on at least four fronts. First, it created human life for the purpose of experimenting upon it. Second, it paid women to have abortions (when all the embryos were not flushed). Third, it treated women as objects, merely as “a Petri dish,” to quote bioethicist Lorie Zoloth.

                                                                                                            Fourth, hyperstimulation can have serious side effects, even leading to occasional death. Add in the likelihood that the women were very poor, and you have a real exploitive circumstance.

                                                                                                              That is for good reasons. Since the publication of Origin of Species, science has discovered that living things are far more complex and clever than Darwin ever could have imagined.

                                                                                                              So how did it happen that the majority of our scientists “lost their minds” and are unable to see the design in living things that is so blindingly obvious to the layman?

                                                                                                                  Across the U.S., American families and friends will gather on the fourth Thursday of November to unwittingly flood their brains with dopamine and serotonin in a celebration of gratitude rooted in English traditions that date back to the Protestant Reformation. 

                                                                                                                  However, the neuromodulating effects of being grateful can profoundly change your life for the better when practiced on the daily, rather than once a year over a wishbone and your Auntie May’s favorite stuffing.

                                                                                                                  While tradition is important in the human experience and a day set aside to give thanks and reflect on all our blessings is a noble occasion, practicing gratitude daily will lead to a happier, healthier you and even reshape your brain according to scientists, with the key being that you must really feel it for it to wield this powerful influence over your physiology and psychology.

                                                                                                                  Gratitude can act as a natural antidepressant by increasing the neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, and sending them hurtling down existing neuropathways as well as forming new neural circuitry. This effect is particularly strong when we ask ourselves what we are grateful for and are mindful of it.  

                                                                                                                  Choosing to practice gratitude has been shown in study after study to create new neurocircuitry through which dopamine can influence the reward center of the brain.

                                                                                                                    Law Professor Phillip Johnson passed away on November 2, 2019 at the age of 79.

                                                                                                                    I became aware of Professor Johnson in 1991 with the publication of his book, Darwin on Trial.

                                                                                                                    Johnson’s book was highly controversial, and changed American culture. In the early 1990s when he wrote this book, it was career suicide for anyone in academia to take a position against Darwinian evolution, and most of the criticisms of Darwin were found in religious circles under the teaching of “Creationism.”

                                                                                                                    It took a law professor like Phillip Johnson, who was not part of the field of biology or other natural sciences, to write a scholarly critique of Darwin’s theories without the threat of censorship, loss of funding, or losing tenure at a major U.S. University.

                                                                                                                    As a law professor at the prestigious University of California Berkeley, his voice demanded to be heard, as he took a legal approach to examine the evidence of Darwin’s theories.

                                                                                                                    Many believe that his foundational book, Darwin on Trial, was the beginning of the modern day “Intelligent Design” movement.

                                                                                                                    Intelligent Design separates itself from “Creationism” as it looks at the scientific evidence in the field of origins, and draws conclusions based on the scientific evidence, without relying on any religious teachings. It concludes that the science points to an intelligent design in nature, and leaves the question of “who” the designer is to religion.

                                                                                                                    • Campylobacter-jejuni

                                                                                                                      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.

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.

                                                                                                                          Canada Court Forces Doctors to Euthanize and Perform Abortions

                                                                                                                          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.
