Health Impact News exists because much of the information we publish cannot be found in the mainstream corporate media. I personally started publishing on the Internet back in 2000 while living in the Philippines, being one of the first to educate the public the truth about coconut oil and saturated fats. Later, we expanded to other topic areas and Health Impact News was born. One of the oldest and largest websites on the Internet publishing health information not found in the mainstream media is Natural News. Mike Adams is the founder of Natural News. I know Mike Adams, and consider him my friend. And while his style of journalism might be different than Health Impact News, he is an honest man, and one of the most brilliant people I have ever met. This week, he reported that forces have been threatening him and trying to blackmail him into discrediting Alex Jones, another leader in the Independent Media who reaches millions of people every day, and is a President Trump supporter. When Mr. Adams refused, and instead published the threat, he reports that his entire website was blacklisted by Google, which he alleges removed 140,000 pages of his website from its index.
A stunning 70 percent of all antibiotics important in human medicine in the U.S. are sold for use in animal agriculture. These lifesaving drugs are fed routinely to animals that are not sick in order to promote growth and prevent diseases that spread easily in crowded, filthy factory farm conditions. Public health agencies have declared antibiotic resistance a top health threat in the U.S. -- and the rampant misuse of antibiotics in livestock production is a major cause. Chain Reaction II is the second annual report and scorecard that grades America’s top restaurant chains’ on their policies and practices regarding antibiotics use and transparency in their meat and poultry supply chains. The good news is that consumer and investor pressure has pushed twice as many companies as last year to create more responsible antibiotics policies, particularly for chicken. The bad news is that Olive Garden, KFC and 14 other chains received F grades and little progress has been made on pork and beef. Only two restaurant chains received an A grade: Chipotle and Panera. Read the 2016 scorecard to see how restaurants fared.
Due to the popularity of gluten-free food items, and the rise of digestive disorders related to wheat allergies, much of the public believes that our modern wheat supplies are grown from genetically modified seeds. But this is not the case. There are currently no approved genetically modified varieties of wheat in the market place. That may soon be changing in Europe, however, as the Rothamsted Research group working in collaboration with researchers from the University of Essex and Lancaster University has reportedly received approval in the U.K. to begin trials of genetically modified wheat.

Husband of Retired Missouri Couple Medically Kidnapped – Estate Plundered to Pay for Unwanted Medical Confinement
Last November marks the beginning of the fourth year that 70 year old Charley Taylor of Missouri has been held by Morgan County in a nursing home against his will, after a trip to the emergency room turned into a permanent medical confinement. Although he has doctors who have stated that he is competent and of sound mind, and although his wife Helen had power of attorney to make decisions for him if he was medically not capable, a state-appointed Conservator has been appointed to him by the court to make all decisions, even against his own wishes and the wishes of his wife. Meanwhile his wife Helen, who has been fighting for her husband’s freedom, has also been battling against false accusations herself. She has been sent to jail based on false charges and later released due to lack of evidence, kidnapped and confined to a mental hospital until a doctor determined that there was nothing wrong with her, and has been evaluated five times to prove her own competency. She told Health Impact News: "We were financially set for the rest of our lives after 40 years of marriage until I called 911. Our lives have been destroyed and I am told everything to do when I see him. If this is justice, I don't need it. We want to be together. He is 70 years old, and I am 67." Helen and Charley worked hard for many years for everything that they owned—sometimes working several jobs in addition to their full-time jobs. Helen said, “I’ve worked all my life.” From 1979 to 2005 she was a field representative and managed doctors in medical facilities. She was so good at it that, she was sent across the country to open new facilities and train personnel. Additionally, Helen was also a mayor for two years in the town of Barnett, while also working a full-time job that required frequent travel, as well as a holding a municipal judge’s license. Helen’s former attorney became very concerned for her safety. He asked, “Do they know where you’re at? I’m worried for you.” He told her, “They will kill people for that amount of money.” He advised her not to let those involved know where she is because they would rather kill her rather than be exposed and lose their income.
This past week thousands of people have tuned in to Dr. Peter Osborne's Autoimmune Revolution online DocuSeries. If you missed any of these fantastic presentations by some of the top minds in Alternative Health, you have a chance to listen to each presentation FREE on the Encore Day, Monday, February 6th.
The average lifespan of someone with an autoimmune disease is 10 years shorter than a healthy person. It doesn't have to be this way! Learn to break the cycle of autoimmune pain at Dr. Peter Osborne’s Autoimmune Revolution! Attend this event FREE and online January 30, 2017 through February 6, 2017. Autoimmune diseases and the physical, chemical and emotional pain they create impacts millions around the world. The primary way doctors treat these diseases today is to prescribe immune suppressing drugs. Unfortunately, this approach has failed to achieve a meaningful outcome and has created an even greater health crisis — what Dr. Peter Osborne calls “The Prescription Pain Trap” — which you will learn more about during this event.
The first ever Vaccine DocuSeries finished this week, and it was a huge success. Dr. Patrick Gentempo, teamed up with Dr. Beau Pierce, CEO of “Circle of Docs” and award-winning documentary filmmaker Jeff Hays, to produce this life-changing event. The Vaccines Revealed docu-series exposed some of the most critical and controversial topics surrounding vaccines. These included autism and vaccines, the dangers of the flu shot, Gardasil, parental rights, and documented fraud and deception in the vaccine arena. Hundreds of people have asked that some of the episodes be replayed. (Episode 3, the Robert Kennedy Jr. episode is the one with the most requests.) So starting at 9:00 PM EST on Friday January 20th, you can access the ENTIRE 9 episodes for FREE! But this opportunity is only until midnight on Sunday, January 22nd. After that it will be taken down.
Statins are the most profitable medications produced by the Big Pharma Cartel. A report from the National Center for Health Statistics claims that 50% of men age 65-74, and nearly 40% of women over the age of 75 take a statin medication. A 2011 study found over 32 million Americans were taking a statin drug. If that many people are prescribed a drug, one would assume that the drug is effective at treating or preventing something. How effective are statin medications? Not very. This class of medications fails nearly 99% of those who take them. Cardiologists order coronary artery calcium scores to assess how much calcium is deposited in the coronary arteries. This test is done with a computerized tomography (CT) scan. According to the Cleveland Clinic, “Coronary calcium scores are the most sensitive approaches to detecting coronary calcification from atherosclerosis before symptoms develop.” In other words, the higher the coronary artery calcium score, the more risk there is for having a heart attack. An article in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology investigated whether the use of stains influences the progression of coronary artery calcification during five years of follow-up in subjects who took a statin medication and compared them to subjects who did not take a statin drug. The scientists reported that subjects who took statins for five years, when compared to those that took a placebo, were found to have a 2-fold increase in coronary artery calcification progression.
