Study Shows Marijuana 114 Times Safer Than Drinking Alcohol
February 26, 2015 | Herbs | M.Torres
We have been led to believe that marijuana is a dangerous and addictive drug that destroys lives and is a far greater risk than other recreational drugs such as alcohol. Governments have tried diligently to to convince the public that people who use pot are more at risk to themselves and the public than those who use alcohol. As the debate over marijuana legalization continues, a new study now shows that smoking the controversial plant is about 114 times safer than drinking alcohol.
Synergistic Destruction: How Vaccines and GMOs Converge to Fuel Autism and Neurodegenerative Conditions
February 26, 2015 | Vaccines | M.Buckley
There is a lot of debate as to what is the cause, or better yet, causes of autism. This post isn’t intended to cover all of the variables which fuel autism. It is intended to provide the reader with an understanding of chief mechanisms related to how consumption of Monsanto’s RoundUp, by way of consuming genetically modified corn, soy, canola oil, sugar beets, or any other "RoundUp ready" crop, as well as vaccines may fuel microglial activation, a leading factor in all neurodegenerative conditions, including autism, Alzheimer's, ALS, Parkinson's, non-situational depression, and virtually all forms of chronic illness.

Busted: Breast Cancer, Money, and the Media - How Breast Cancer Statistics Are Being Manipulated
February 24, 2015 | JunkHealthcare | P.Byrne
At the edge of the Pacific, women believe they’re part of an unexplained breast cancer cluster. It’s a fear created by media hype and medical researchers who should know better. Since the '90s, the San Francisco Chronicle has published a steady stream of articles claiming the affluent, mostly white women of Marin have the highest rate of breast cancer in the country, as much as 35 percent higher than the national average. A new documentary plans to dispel the myths.

February 24, 2015 | Pollution | L.Bentley
The oceans of the Earth have maintained a consistent acidity level for millions of years. Research now shows that this balance is changing due to a recent and rapid drop in surface pH that could have devastating global consequences which we can now see on satellite imagery from space.
The World Can Learn A Thing or Two From Children On How To Share
February 24, 2015 | Consciousness | J.Richardson
The examples of greed, domination, selfishness and other self-absorbed characteristics of behavior are not innate within human beings. They are learned. As much as society will attempt to instill a belief that humanity is a disgustingly self-indulgent species, our true nature is one of compassion, empathy, benevolence, teamwork and cooperation. That is immediately evident in children and it's about time we start recognizing that wisdom.
6 Valuable Publications On Vaccine Awareness and Raising A Vaccine-Free Child
February 23, 2015 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
All three of my children have been vaccine-free since birth. They all have incredibly resilient immune systems and are rarely if ever ill. Part of the comfort in the decision making process regarding vaccination comes from education and research, listening to both sides of the debate and then making your own informed decision without being bullied either way. Here are six very inexpensive, yet extremely valuable publications I recommend that may help you better assess your options regarding vaccination.
Almost 100 Percent Of Pregnant Women Test Positive For These Four Groups Of Chemicals Including Some That Are Banned
February 23, 2015 | Pregnancy | M.Chan
Four groups of chemicals are found in virtually 100 percent of all U.S. pregnant women, including some banned since the 1970s and others used in common products such as non-stick cookware, processed foods and personal care products. Not only were the chemicals found in pregnant women tested but also in amniotic fluid providing some of the best evidence to date of fetal exposures.
Teachers Soon To Be Charged, Criminalized And Removed From Their Positions If They Instruct on Social Problems and World Government Platforms
February 22, 2015 | GovernmentAbuse | M.Torres
Much like the controlled media, school curriculums are designed to place students in a similar hypnotic state where they don't question what they are taught. Teachers are finally becoming aware of this problem and they're beginning to inspire students through education and awareness. This is a big problem for the engines of deceit, especially in the United States. Legislation is currently being introduced in some U.S. states that will prohibit the teaching of things like social problems, economics, foreign affairs, the United Nations, world government, until other sources based on indoctrinating children are taught first.
Just One Look At The Ingredients In Fruit Roll-Ups Will Convince You To Make Your Own
February 20, 2015 | JunkFood | N.Longo
Fruit Roll-ups are a popular snack made famous by General Mills and distributed by the Betty Crocker brand. They've been heavily marketed to children since the 1980s using tag lines such as "real fruit and fun." Unfortunately, the manufacturer's play on words are very deceptive to the consumer and there's nothing "real" inside the snack. General Mills lost its motion to dismiss a lawsuit with claims the company deceived consumers about the fruit content in Fruit Roll-Ups. A closer look at the ingredients lends support to claims by critics that the snack is nothing but processed sugar. Here's an easy way to make your own.

Protecting Yourself From 4 Horrible Consequences of Extreme Cold
February 16, 2015 | Prevention | J.Battaglia

Plastic Pollution: Is The Ocean Becoming Enough Of An Environmental Concern for Both Governments And Consumers?
February 16, 2015 | Pollution | C.Brannan
Plastic does not biodegrade; no microbe has yet evolved that can feed on it. But prolonged exposure to sunlight causes polymer chains to break down into smaller and smaller pieces. More than 100 billion kilograms of plastic is being shipped around the world accounting for most of the flecks and fragments in the enormous plastic soup at the heart of the Pacific, but there have been no serious international efforts to curb the problem which is now a significant environmental concern for governments, scientists, nongovernmental organizations, and members of the public worldwide.

Geoengineering Is Changing Extratropical Cyclones Which Drive Most of The Earth's Weather
February 15, 2015 | Geoengineering | K.Bergman
Intense geoengineering activity across the planet is influencing weather patterns globally to unprecedented levels. After studying one year of video on aerosols emission and transport, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has found aerosol pollution is changing weather and climate around the planet and strengthening extratropical cyclones--a type of storm system that drives much of the world's weather.

Here how's to cook and peel the perfect egg.
4 Reasons Human Beings May Not Be Mammals
February 13, 2015 | Consciousness | J.Richardson
Compared to the length of time the Earth has existed, humans have only been here a very small fraction of that period. One thing that is very confusing about our biological classification is that we are labeled as mammals and part of the animal kingdom. However, mammals do not behave the way we do. I realize that our classification has more to do with our biology rather than behavior, but hear me out. Our behavior is so unique that it aligns with something else--something not living at all.
Chocolate Significantly Boosts Memory, But Only If You Consume Large Amounts. Is That a Problem?
February 12, 2015 | Antioxidants | K.Foster
Most women will say "no." After consuming drinks enriched with compounds found in cocoa beans for three months, the performance of people on a memory test was akin to someone several decades younger. There is caveat though-- if you want the memory benefits of chocolate, you must consume staggering amounts.

Dampness and Food Therapy In Traditional Chinese Medicine
February 11, 2015 | Healing | E.Block
In medicine, the study of etiology refers to the study of the origins of disease. The study of pathogenesis is the study of the actual processes within the body whereby disease occurs, develops and changes. One of the most central concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is that of the intimate connection between the body and the environment. There is a saying in TCM: "The earth element creates damp and the metal element stores it."
What Are The Effects On Appearance When One Identical Twin Smokes And The Other Doesn't
February 11, 2015 | Toxins | A.McCarthy
Although identical twins are born with "nearly identical" DNA, that DNA changes over their life span. It can change due to the foods they eat, environmental toxicity and the chemicals they're exposed to in their lifetime. Identical twins are also excellent subjects for study because they allow us to observe the effects of toxicity on the human body on two different bodies with the same genetic make-up. So if only one twin has a prolonged exposure to something like cigarettes, and the other one doesn't, we can visually assess some very interesting physical changes taking place. These pictures tell that story.
As Vaccine Uptake Reaches All-Time Lows, Public Health Policy Now Shifts To Mandatory Enforcement and Criminalization To Those Refusing Vaccines
February 10, 2015 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
History is being made on how the world is responding to vaccination. Even long-term health professionals are refusing to vaccinate themselves in the face of continued injury and death being caused by the practice. Almost half of healthcare professionals are now refusing to vaccinate and children's uptake for HPV, influenza, chicken pox and many other vaccines are reaching historic lows as the awakening spans across the planet. One thing is for sure--those who have stopped vaccinating will never start vaccinating again. So the challenge for the pharmaceutical industrial complex is now aggressively shifting to holding on to the remaining vaccinators before they convert to the anti-vaccine position. How will they do this? Fear of course.
Radiation Concerns; Warning Labels on Cellphones
February 10, 2015 | EMF | E.Dahl
According to an article in a Canadian news publication, "The World Health Organization places wireless radiation on the same cancer warning-list as DDT, lead and car exhaust." The article focused on a Member of Parliament's calls for cell phone warning labels to be pulled from the back of owner's manuals and instead be posted prominently on either the device's box or on the device itself.

The report -- A Day Late and a Dollar Short: Discount Retailers are Falling Behind on Safer Chemicals – includes testing results for 164 dollar store products such as toys, jewelry, school supplies and other household items, that found over 81% (133 of 164) contained at least one hazardous chemical above levels of concern.
Feeding The Fear
February 9, 2015 | Consciousness | J.Chitty
I saw a poster the other day, proclaiming “Please Do Not Feed The Fears” with a play on "Fears" rather than "Bears". The sentiment expressed is unfortunately so typical of everything that is wrong with the media and those in authority today. It may not be a completely new concept -- instilling fear into people -- but it has certainly become much worse.
A Warning About Cinder Block or Concrete Masonry Gardens
February 6, 2015 | Toxins | J.Summerly
Cinder block gardens have recently become very popular, however a risk of heavy metal poisons from Fly Ash within the concrete may pose a serious threat to the health of an organic garden, leeching toxins into the soil and the plants themselves.
10 Differences Between A Child Who Grew Up In The 70s Compared To Today
February 5, 2015 | Lifestyle | M.Torres
As a child who grew up in the seventies, I'm flabbergasted at the degree of generational differences in health, medicine, food, safety, and general well-being of children. Don't get me wrong, I love technology and all the advancements we've made in several areas, but at the same time when you break it down to the simplest ways of managing human lives, we've taken one step forward and three steps back. The level of fear we currently exhibit as parents and as a society towards children is at an unprecedented level. When comparing the two time periods, an element of certainty exists where we have now immersed our most precious assets into an toxic, overly hygienic, medicalized, obsessive compulsive, paranoid, anxious and at the very least, a "cowardice culture" where children are being trained and almost indoctrinated into a world where "the norm" is to fear everything and everyone.
Why Soft Drinks And Even Sparkling Water Are Worse Than You Thought
February 4, 2015 | JunkFood | A.Epstein
We're drinking more soft drinks than ever before - on average, 25 gallons each a year. But what is it doing to our health? Last week, U.S. researchers suggested that girls who frequently had fizzy drinks were more likely to start puberty early. And it's not just sugary drinks - diet versions, even sparkling water, can have an effect on health.
Alternative Treatments and Home Remedies For Tuberculosis
February 4, 2015 | Healing | A.Erin
Tuberculosis, also known as TB, is not simply an old disease that killed Doc Holliday and plenty of people during the early part of the 20th century. It afflicts 3 in 100,000 people today in the U.S., and today, we have more knowledge about natural remedies and prevention than Doc Holliday did. However, TB is still a serious disease that affects millions of people worldwide, especially those in developing countries.

There Is No Time. There Never Was and There Never Will Be
February 3, 2015 | Consciousness | J.Richardson
Everything exists in the present moment and it's a fundamental principle of the Universe that many of our scientists are still trying to grasp. Time does not actually exist and Quantum Theory proves it. There are things that are closer to you in time, and things that are further away, just as there are things that are near or far away in space. But the idea that time flows past you is just as absurd as the suggestion that space does.
L-Glutamine Changes Gut Bacteria Leading To Weight Loss
February 2, 2015 | YourWeight | M.Chan
L-Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles and it plays a key role in protein metabolism, and the ability to secrete human growth hormone, which helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth. Researchers have now found that a daily L-glutamine dose of 30 grams per day was associated with a significant reduction in the ratio of specific biomarkers for obesity.
