Most Nations in the World Have No GMO-Free Platform To Protect Their Citizens
May 31, 2012 | GMO | N.Longo
Unless you live in the dozen or so nations in the world who have declared GMO (genetically modified organism) bans, then you're likely eating GMO. Eating organic is your best chance of avoiding GM foods, but it's almost impossible to avoid them entirely, especially if you're living in a country that doesn't restrict their cultivation, import or export. The United States, Canada, China, UK, Australia, Mexico, and most of South America, Asia and Africa have no formal GMO-free platforms and their use is typically unrestricted and widespread.
How Geoengineering And The Aerosol Spraying Of Our Skies Is Destroying Our Health
May 31, 2012 | Geoengineering | Editor
For decades, governments and scientists worldwide have been denying the existence of discreet operations which (for various reasons) use military aircrafts to spray our skies with chemical toxins. Such operations have often been dismissed as conspiracy theories, or in many cases a misinterpretation of condenstation trails (contrails). Goverments are now finally admitting that geoengineering is a reality and have stated that despite any detrimental affects to our health, will continue these operations indefinitely.

Vaccines and Injections Soon To Be Delivered Via Small Needleless High-Pressure Jets
May 25, 2012 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
Once the public grew more skeptical of vaccines after the pandemic flu hoax, mainstream medicine was forced to adopt new methods of tackling the antagonists of their beloved immunization campaigns (a misnomer in itself). One idea was to make vaccines more friendly to the public. Something that has always struck fear (and rightfully so) in the hearts of children is the vaccine needle. So the heads of conventional medicine approached MIT researchers to develop a needleless delivery system that would at least squelch the "needle phobia" to make drug injections seamless, painless and free from any stigma attached to the jab. It seems that we'll soon have change those graphic depictions of hypodermic needles to a device that is very different as technology continues to progress while modern medicine continues to regress.

When You Heat Natural Plant-Based Foods You Get Acrylamide and Cancer
May 17, 2012 | Toxins | N.Longo
Nature has a funny way of showing us not to disrupt the perfection of organic produce. Changing the chemical structure of many natural foods, such as exposing them to high heat can promote cancer. Acrylamide is a chemical that naturally forms in certain foods, particularly plant-based foods that are rich in carbohydrates and low in protein, during processing or cooking at high temperatures. We're not only referring to foods like french fries or potato chips, but hundreds of conventional foods that are "ready to eat" in the grocery aisle including cookies, breakfast cereals, popcorn, pizza and even ground coffee.

1 in 88 Children in the U.S. Now Have Autism...Or Is This The "New Math?"
May 16, 2012 | Vaccines | S.Tzorfas
The Center for Disease Control recently announced that 1 in 88 children in the United States now have Autism. Many were shocked at the escalation of Autism in the last few years, but some of us were shocked at the number. It seems inadequate to make this claim. The issue is that this number was based on children who were born in the year 2000 and were looked at in the year 2008. It was based on children who were eight years old in 2008 and it was handed to us as a “new” and latest finding in the spring of 2012. Therefore it was four years old by the time they released the information.

There are some things in life not worth keeping. Letting go of negative qualities which dominate your ego will only lead to a greater sense of self and happiness.

According To Doctors, New Born Babies Have Only Felt Pain In The Last 30 Years
May 14, 2012 | JunkScience | D.Mihalovic
Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? Read the title again. How could babies not feel pain? Your first impression may interpret the statement as absurd or illogical. Well that is precisely how conventional medical misinformation was spread (and is spread) throughout scientific literature to promote fiction as fact. Doctors only started accepting the idea that babies experienced pain from vaccine injections and circumcision in the 1980's. Before that, medical wisdom had somehow managed to promote the myth of painless babies to allopathic practitioners worldwide. In fact, newborns underwent many routine surgeries without anesthetic before the 1980's because of this misrepresented belief.

U.S. is the Fattest Country In The World: The Top Food Offenders That Make Us Fat
May 13, 2012 | YourWeight | J.Summerly
Well, at least in terms of very developed nations with larger populations. The evidence is all around us and a even brief public outing will confirm it. We are one fat country. We love to eat and all the wrong foods. The problem is more related to what we eat rather than how much we eat. The culprits are not always so obvious either. Gone are the days when it was only fast food that would add to our waistline. Today it's everyday foods that are suspect.

May 12, 2012 | Consciousness | Editor
A global peace initiative report titled "enthusiasm" aims to be part of a growing collective of informed people who shares life enhancing information with population networks, with the common idea of improving the natural sustainability of life on Earth. As highly dependent stakeholders in the welfare of Earth’s natural resources and life-forms, if our interests are ever to be based on a solid foundation of life-enhancing knowledge and healthy self-managed intentions, we all could use a harmless catalyst-of-change which is simple, comprehensive and universal to all people.

Is Spirituality Opportunistic?
May 11, 2012 | Consciousness | R.Bijlani
Wasting an opportunity is stupid; waiting for an opportunity is lazy; looking for an opportunity is smart; creating an opportunity is genius. Can one get any better? Yes, converting all circumstances into an opportunity is spiritual. The events and circumstances of life are often not under our control, but how we look at them always is. Spirituality gives us a way of looking at life that converts all circumstances into opportunities for spiritual growth.
How To Naturally Deter Insects With Herbs Instead of Chemicals
May 10, 2012 | Sustainability | A.McCarthy
Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides dominate agricultural practices for killing just about anything that is unwanted or interfering with the healthy growth of plants and crops. However, lower scale operations should never resort this poisoning of nature. Some of the earliest written documents on gardening discuss the relationships between herbs and companion plants. When selecting your companion plants you will need to consider more than which pests are deterred. Think about what each plant adds or takes away from the soil and what effect the proximity of strong herbs may have on the flavor of your vegetables.

Savvy Public: Support For Action on Climate Change Dropping Every Year
May 9, 2012 | ClimateChange | M.Torres
The global warming hoax has fizzled as one of the hottest topics of debate in recent years. Government players involved in the hoax then went on damage control and changed the term to "climate change". Once the public caught wind of thousands of emails that exposed the industry of climate change alarmism and highlighted the hypocritical claims of corporate cronyism on behalf of proponents of the anthropological global warming theory (AGW), support for action on climate change went on a downward spiral and has continued ever since.
Researchers Want To Super Stimulate Our Immune Systems With A Universal Flu Vaccine
May 9, 2012 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
The population is getting wise to the ineffectiveness of flu shots and both public health agencies and the medical community itself know it. The numbers and complacency rates speak for themselves. So the pseudoscientists at Vaccine Inc are now offering a solution for what they feel is an uninformed and lazy public who are no longer interested in receiving the seasonal jab year after year. University of British Columbia researchers have found a new marketing technique. A universal flu vaccine to eliminate the need for seasonal flu vaccinations. One flu shot to protect all humans against all known flu strains for an undisclosed number of years.

Popular Diet and Regular Drinks Almost As Corrosive As Battery Acid On Your Teeth
May 8, 2012 | OralHealth | N.Longo
Beverage consumption in most developed countries of the world is now a major contributor of tooth decay. Many sodas and diet soft drinks approach the pH level of battery acid in terms of corrosiveness and erosion of tooth enamel. Our susceptibility to tooth decay and cavities has much more to do with what we put in our bodies, rather than regular visits to our dentist or even how often we brush our teeth. If you want to prevent tooth decay, a 'great' idea is to stay away from acidic beverages which dissolve tooth enamel and offer no nutritional value to your body.

The Best Approach To Treating Any Health Condition
May 7, 2012 | Healing | B.Kim
Our instant-gratification society teaches us to seek out quick solutions for our health challenges.

Beta-Carotene: Why Most of Your Vitamins Should Come From Food, Not Supplements
May 3, 2012 | Antioxidants | N.Longo
One mantra we often hear from the natural health industry is "take your supplements." While a high quality supplement may provide you with some vitamins and minerals that you may be deficient in, it will never replace a well balanced diet and the delivery system that nature intended. A perfect example is the dark side of beta carotene intake.

A new study published in ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, explains how black pepper can reduce fat levels in the bloodstream.
Why Do Good People Suffer?
May 3, 2012 | Consciousness | S.Tejomayananda
"Why do good people suffer or why do bad things happen to good people?" This question seems to be very common these days. It seems as though good people get the brunt of all suffering, while evil-doers enjoy life. But if we observe closely, we see that everyone undergoes suffering in some form. Keeping this in mind, our question becomes meaningless. Just because a person is good does not mean there would be no suffering in his/her life.

If Your Doctor Insists That Vaccines Are Safe, Then Have Them Sign This Form
May 2, 2012 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
The average person that consents to a vaccine injection, either for themselves or for their children, genuinely believes it is for the betterment of health. What they are not aware of is that even their doctor is likely unfamiliar with the toxic ingredients contained in vaccines which can immediately begin to degrade both short- and long-term health. If your doctor insists that vaccines are safe, then they should have absolutely no problem in signing this form so that you may archive it for your own records on the event of an adverse reaction.

Questioning The Wisdom of Using Pacifiers
May 1, 2012 | ChildHealth | Editor
Most babies have a strong sucking reflex. Some babies even suck their thumbs or fingers before they're born. Beyond nutrition, sucking often has a soothing, calming effect. But what should they suckle with? Binkies, corks, soothers. Whatever you call pacifiers, conventional wisdom holds that giving them to newborns can interfere with breastfeeding.
