News regarding traditional wisdom and native diets regarding nutrition.
Tony Roman's defiance of the California lockdown policies and Governor Newsom's directives against restaurants continued this week when he refused to attend a scheduled court hearing regarding his restaurant with the State's health mandates, refusing to concede that the court had any jurisdiction over this matter. Tony is the owner of Basilico's restaurant in Huntington Beach, California. Not only has his restaurant not complied with COVID edicts, he has banned anyone wearing a face mask from dining in his restaurant. When Newsom imposed a state-wide curfew of 10 p.m., Tony extended the hours his restaurant is open to 11 p.m. As Tony puts it, not only is he not complying, he is defying and taunting the State's unconstitutional edicts. "I will reject any invitation to appear and defend myself for something that needs no defense. I will give you no authority over us where you have none, because we both know that there have been no real crimes or violations committed here. It is instead all of you who must defend yourselves for willfully violating our constitutional rights."
The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) The Great Reset includes a plan to transform the global food and agricultural industries and the human diet. The architects of the plan claim it will reduce food scarcity, hunger and disease, and even mitigate climate change. But a closer look at the corporations and think tanks the WEF is partnering with to usher in this global transformation suggests that the real motive is tighter corporate control over the food system by means of technological solutions. Vandana Shiva, scholar, environmentalist, food sovereignty advocate and author, told The Defender, “The Great Reset is about multinational corporate stakeholders at the World Economic Forum controlling as many elements of planetary life as they possibly can. From the digital data humans produce to each morsel of food we eat.” The WEF describes itself as “the global platform for public-private cooperation” that creates partnerships between corporations, politicians, intellectuals, scientists and other leaders of society to “define, discuss and advance key issues on the global agenda.” According to WEF’s founder and executive chairman, Klaus Schwab, the forum is guided by the goal of positioning “private corporations as the trustees of society” to “address social and environmental challenges.” The WEF’s plans for the “reset” of food and agriculture include projects and strategic partnerships that favor genetically modified organisms, lab-made proteins and pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals as sustainable solutions to food and health issues.
Italian Restaurant owner Tony Roman has defied Governor Newsom's edicts for 7 months now. Not only does he NOT require his customers to wear masks to enter his restaurant, he forbids anyone wearing a mask from entering his restaurant! Governor Newsom responded by sending his "Strike Force" team to the restaurant to try to intimidate their employees by threatening to arrest them, and by threatening to remove their business and liquor license. There's just one problem Governor Newsom encountered. Basilico's will not be intimidated, because they are not breaking any laws that can be prosecuted in a court of law! So they remain open for business, and the owner took out a huge billboard sign to let everyone in Los Angeles know! His billboard slogan is: "Leave the Mask, Take the Cannoli!" I'm sure Tony would like to tell Governor Newsom to shove the cannoli where the sun don't shine! But then again, being Italian, probably not. He probably has far too much respect for authentic Italian food to waste a good cannoli like that.... Taking a stand for freedom comes at a cost, however, and Tony has received death threats and threats to burn down his restaurant. But he's not backing down. He writes: "The restaurant continues to operate normally in defiance as it has since the lockdown began in March; with dine-in, no-limit seating, no social distancing and a ban on masks (all to provide the public with a sanctuary space that still feels like pre-shutdown and vintage-era America). A place the world-that-we-know have seemingly lost. On an important note, not one member of Basilico’s staff, and no customers who have dined at the restaurant, have ever come down with any virus related illness. Basilico’s has remained fully operational, never making any changes according to mandates, in an open confrontation with the governor and his orders, as a form of non-violent protest against what ownership perceives as tyranny imposed on American citizens in the name of a media and politically driven over blown health crisis. Ownership believes the state’s shutdown measures are far out of line with the reality of actual epidemiological data, trampling on our constitutional rights, and the only concern among Americans should be the fast spreading virus of fear. The result of Basilico’s actions include snitches and supporters of the governor calling in death threats to ownership, management and staff with promises to burn the restaurant down, a flood of hateful one star Google and Yelp reviews, and harassing phone calls, letters, and emails many boasting about how their mission is to help force the shutdown of the business. However instead of retreating, Basilico’s has taken the fight head-on to mask shamers and lockdown lovers, by flaunting their patriotism and resistance to what they refer to as Anti-Liberty state guidelines."
Walmart, Costco, Albertsons, Kroger, Ahold, Aldi, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, H-E-B, Hy-Vee, Sprouts, Giant Eagle, Meijer and Target have affirmed their commitment to not sell genetically engineered AquAdvantage® salmon ahead of AquaBounty Technologies planned first-ever harvest and commercial sales in the U.S., planned for this fall. The news comes following the court hearing last week, in which a federal judge in California looked poised to rule in favor of environmental groups afraid of GMO salmon’s potential to blunt wild salmon populations, thus blocking the FDA’s approval of the fish. “Genetically engineered salmon pose unacceptable risks to wild salmon and broader ecosystems. People across the country have made it clear that they don’t want to eat genetically engineered salmon, and food retailers are clearly listening,” said Dana Perls, food and technology program manager at Friends of the Earth. “We thank these forward-thinking retailers for their leadership.” A growing body of science suggests that GE salmon may pose serious environmental risks including potentially irreversible damage to wild salmon populations.
Wonder why there is a canned food shortage at your local grocery store? Washington State has been stocking away millions of dollars of non-perishable food — so have other US states, and the federal government — in anticipation of “the need ahead.” If states are preparing, so too must you be today.

Healthy Traditions founder and owner Brian Shilhavy sent out an announcement this weekend regarding the online business's Food Security program. A message from Brian Shilhavy, owner of Healthy Traditions, regarding food security. The 2020 COVID response has turned our world upside down, almost overnight. Thousands of businesses have closed, and millions are out of work. Healthy Traditions, originally started as Tropical Traditions, Inc., in 2002, has been blessed to be one of the small businesses to survive the first round of this "New World Order" that is quickly unfolding before us. I believe we have not seen the worst of this current plan in place to radically change the world and the way we live, and I have been publishing much of what I see happening, and who the major players are behind all of this, as Editor of Health Impact News. The Globalists who have now taken over the world's economic system have a plan in place, and whether or not that includes a business like Healthy Traditions to continue operating, offering the public a real choice to the commodity food system controlled primarily by the same group of businesses tied into the Central Bankers and Wall Street Billionaires, is unknown. Therefore, we are looking for local distributors that are currently serving their communities already with wholesome and healthy products that are also an alternative to mass produced, cheap commodity food and products. This could be a co-op, a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) group, a local buyer's club, or something similar. Read more.
Incorporating these five herbs and spices into your daily diet may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, protect your brain from neurodegeneration, stimulate your immune system and protect against inflammation, among other benefits. Best of all, these ingredients are all easily available and may already exist in your pantry or spice rack Over the years, researchers have become increasingly interested in the effects of diet and natural compounds on human health, finding that many herbs and spices are equally or more effective than many conventional medicines and treatments, and often present far fewer adverse effects while being more cost-effective. Here are five herbs and spices you can add to your diet to turn ordinary meals into nutrient-dense "supermeals."
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.
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.
