Alternative Health looks at alternative ways of treating illness apart from the medical system.

Why Are U.S. Breast Cancer Rates Out of Control?

In the US, breast cancer rates are out of control. Presently, one in seven US women suffer from breast cancer. In 2019, an estimated 268,600 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Think about those numbers: One in seven and nearly 270,000 women diagnosed with invasive cancer—THIS YEAR!   Those numbers are unacceptable, or at least they should be! What are the Powers-That-Be doing to stem this tide? The answer: They are too busy diagnosing and treating and are not properly searching for the underlying cause of why too many US women suffer with breast cancer. We are exposed to too many synthetic hormones which can disrupt the normal hormonal milieu. Women are prescribed synthetic hormones in birth control pills and conventional hormonal replacement therapy which have been conclusively shown to increase the risk for breast cancer. Iodine deficiency is one of the main reasons we are seeing so much breast cancer. I have been writing and lecturing about iodine for almost 20 years. Iodine levels in the US have fallen over 50% during the last 40 years while at the same time breast cancer rates have risen to epidemic levels.

FDA Cracks Down on CBD Oil – Not Approved as a Supplement

Unless the FDA makes an exception, consumers will lose access to affordable CBD oil. Over the last couple of years, ANH has been reporting on the many benefits of CBD oil, a non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp plant. Among other things, CBD oil is extremely helpful in managing pain. You might think that, in the midst of a crippling epidemic of opioid addiction, a public health agency would be interested in preserving access to affordable, non-addictive pain remedies. But the FDA could shut the door permanently on consumer access to affordable CBD oil, unless concerned citizens make their voices heard. The agency has sent warning letters to several CBD companies for making illegal disease claims. It is shocking that this issue has come to this. Deaths from fentanyl, an FDA-approved drug, and other synthetic opioids reached an appalling 30,000 in 2018. When a safe, non-addictive, and effective alternative to deadly opioids is found, it is snatched away by Big Pharma with the help of the FDA, whose mission it is to protect public health. It is one of the most shameful examples of crony capitalism in recent memory.

Communist China’s Social Credit Score System being Implemented in U.S. by Silicon Valley?

Recently we reported that China's new Social Credit Score system resulted in millions of Chinese citizens being banned from public travel due to social credit scores that were too low. According to China's new Social Credit Scores, “Bad behavior” can lower an individual’s social credit score, and “good behavior” can increase it. Reported examples of “bad behavior” include: playing too many video games, spreading “fake news,” drinking too much, walking your dog without a leash, smoking where you are not supposed to, or simply being too noisy on a train or bus. In that article we asked: "Could something like this be implemented in the United States?" According to Mike Elgan, writing for Fast Company, such a system is already being developed here in the U.S. by Silicon Valley technology companies, apart from the U.S. Government. Is the American public going to allow the Technology giants to determine what is proper social behavior, who is qualified to hold political offices, and what is fake news and what is not? Will it take massive protests (hopefully peaceful!) in streets as we have recently seen in Hong Kong to turn the tide against technology tyranny here in the U.S.?

Self-Appointed Internet Police Declare MedicalKidnap.com and DOJ Vaccine Court Reports Fake News

Health Impact News was recently contacted by John Gregory, a medical reporter working for the company NewsGuard, a self-appointed Internet policing group that awards "nutrition badge" ratings for websites determining if they are "reliable" or not. Mr. Gregory accused me right up front of publishing "false" claims, and asked me to comment on a list of articles in our network that he determined were "false." Curiously, one of the articles he chose to exhibit as something published that was "false" was one of our articles on the Department of Justice quarterly reports on compensated cases for vaccine injuries and deaths in the U.S. Vaccine Court, submitted every three months to the federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The article is reporting what is public information from government sources. When they gave Health Impact News a negative rating, they even gave a negative rating to Created4Health.org, which is not even a news site but a site where I publish my devotional articles based on Bible studies. They also gave a negative rating to MedicalKidnap.com. Mr Gregory accused us of simply taking unverified social media posts from parents who claimed their children were being kidnapped by the state, and asked us if we even bothered to verify their stories. There is strong evidence that NewsGuard is comprised of "old-school journalists" who represent corporate interests, and are doing everything they can to squelch free speech on the Internet, especially in social media platforms. Health Impact News provides a free service to the public that often is seldom found elsewhere, and that is especially true with our Medical Kidnapping stories, where we are one of the few places parents can come to and find a platform to tell the world what is happening to America's children who are being kidnapped by the State, and often end up being sexually trafficked. What a shame it would be if the corporate censorship forces get their way. What can you do to fight corporate censorship?

Studies: Fluoridated Water Linked to Low IQ and Kidney Dysfunction in Children

The validity of the 1950's American Public Health Policy, which embraced the dumping of the toxic byproduct Fluorosilicic acid into water reservoirs across the country in an attempt at “better living through chemistry," is being increasingly brought under scrutiny as more and more research suggests that drinking water ‘fortified’ with fluoride may be doing more harm than good. Recent studies suggest that the consumption of fluoridated drinking water is damaging to the developing brain of infants in utero, as well as making the connection between kidney and liver damage in adolescents and chronic low-level exposure to fluoride in their water.  Worrying is the fact that both studies were done using widely-accepted optimal levels of fluoride which are currently set at 0.7 milligrams per liter of drinking water.

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

The Chinese government operated English news site, Global Times, tweeted recently that the government had restricted 2.56 million people from purchasing plane tickets, and 90,000 people from buying high-speed rail tickets during the month of July, due to too low of a social credit score. China's new social credit system will be fully operational by 2020, but it is apparently already in place across China. Like a person's financial credit score, a social credit score can move up or down based on your social behavior. In recent years, China has increasingly monitored its citizens activities through social media, and extensive facial recognition software. "Bad behavior" can lower an individual's social credit score, and "good behavior" can increase it. Reported examples of "bad behavior" include: playing too many video games, spreading “fake news,” drinking too much, walking your dog without a leash, smoking where you are not supposed to, or simply being too noisy on a train or bus. Besides banning you from riding an airplane or train, other ways China can restrict its citizens for having too low of a social credit score include: throttling your internet speeds, banning you — or your kids — from the best schools, stopping you getting the best jobs, keeping you out of the best hotels, getting your dog taken away, or being publicly named as a bad citizen. Could something like this be implemented in the United States? Most of the major corporate-media outlets in the U.S. have reported about China's new social credit system as something negative, but I did find one exception. The Washington Post published an article last year titled: "The West may be wrong about China’s social credit system." The Washington Post is now owned by Jeff Bezos, founder and owner of Amazon.com. Amazon.com is also selling facial recognition software in the U.S. to law enforcement and governments.

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

You may have heard of 5G, it stands for fifth-generation cellular wireless. In a February 2019 US Senate hearing, the wireless industry was forced to admit they have no safety studies on 5G, and don’t plan to do any. Meanwhile, there are thousands of independent studies concluding that wireless radiation causes biological harm. Despite this, the wireless industry is working with government to deploy 5G — it’s a global, for-profit, human experiment… without our consent. What does it mean? Millions of “small” cell towers will be added to every block (which is a serious privacy concern). Each tower emitting radiation at levels known to cause cancer, sterility, DNA damage and other harm… especially to our children, who are most at risk. The 5G Crisis: Awareness & Accountability summit is online and FREE!

How to Remove Glyphosate from the Body and Restore Digestive Health

Even if we try to be extra careful, we are all exposed to glyphosate every day. This toxic agricultural poison is in 80% of food. It is in many sources of water and it can even be in the air we breathe. Glyphosate is also in organic food. Even though organic food growers are not allowed to use glyphosate, it is still found in organic food. It gets into organic food through aerial spray drift, dust carried in the wind from farm to farm, rain and agricultural runoff from adjacent farms. Sometimes the levels of glyphosate in organic food are nearly as high as non-organic food. In 2014, the total amount of glyphosate used in the United States was 276 million pounds or 0.87 lbs. per person. [5] That’s almost one pound of poison per person per year. We no longer need to feel like helpless victims when it comes to glyphosate exposure. The two-part strategy that is outlined here enables us to restore our health when glyphosate is tearing us down and setting us up for any number of chronic modern illnesses.

How Google Threatens Your Children

Google is without a doubt the largest and clearest monopoly on the planet. It dominates online searches and advertising, which in and of itself leads to automatic bias. As noted by Google’s founders Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page in their 1998 paper, “The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine,” “… [W]e expect that advertising funded search engines will be inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of consumers.” Google has also infiltrated many other areas of our day-to-day lives, having acquired dozens of other companies4 you might not realize belong to Google or its parent company, Alphabet. Among the most well-known are YouTube, the largest video platform on the web, and Android, one of the most popular operating systems worldwide. Google also has significant influence over urban development, health care and childhood education. However, for all its conveniences, Google poses a very real threat to all these children. As noted in a 2017 article in The New York Times — which details the strategic moves that allowed Google to take over the American classroom — “schools may be giving Google more than they are getting: generations of future customers.” By the time these children have grown into adulthood, every single preference, thought, belief and proclivity will be known about them, which will make them extremely vulnerable to manipulation, not only through targeted advertising but also through what might be called customized censorship or targeted social engineering — in essence, the strategy of tailoring the information any given individual can see in order to shape and mold their prejudices and ideas.

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

It’s not every day your son smiles while beating up his Xbox. Theo literally enjoyed it. We tried many ways to regulate gaming time. It was always a source of arguments. Finally, I unplugged it yesterday after thinking about doing it for over a year. Not only did I unplug it, I broke it. My son didn’t know I busted it. He saw me take it out of his room. Later he asked me if I broke it. I said yes. Honestly, he seemed relieved. He wasn’t upset at all.
