Above all else, the United States is the marketing capital of the world. Our society is built around products and services and all the ways they are advertised to us in a way designed to outpace the competition. While it may be unethical to do so, marketing fosters its share of lying, truth-twisting and censorship by omission. The food industry is a model food chain — the big guys try to swallow the small guys, which is why organic foods are slandered by food giants and Big Agra.

In an alarming new study published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, researchers from CRIIGEN reported on the results of a 2 year feeding study in rats given either NK603 Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize, cultivated with or without Roundup, and Roundup alone, resulting in cancer and death.

Fruits elicit not only joy in the eating of them -- incidentally, the word fruit stems from the Latin word frui, meaning "to enjoy, use" -- but they also nourish and protect the body with powerful, built-in medicinal activity. Fruits are, of course, by design a "perfect food," intended to entice animals to consume them in order to help disseminate their seed.

New concern has been raised over the toxicity of dental composites, which have long been promoted as overall safer than mercury-based amalgams, to children’s psychosocial functioning. In fact, new research indicates that bisphenol-A based dental restorations may be more neurotoxic than the mercury ones they were designed to replace, resulting in even greater learning impairment and behavioral issues.
Cord prolapse, a cause of permanent disability and death, can be caused by amniotomy at or near term. To achieve optimal neonatal outcomes, the amniotic sac should not be ruptured artificially to speed up labor or induce labor.

Could the active ingredient in marijuana, responsible for its characteristic "high," help turn the tide against the accelerating Alzheimer's epidemic? A remarkable study published in the journal Molecular Pharmacology in 2006, found that this long vilified plant may contain a compound with not one, but two therapeutic properties ideal for addressing both the surface symptom (memory problems) and root cause (brain plaque) of Alzheimer’s disease

The science is definitive: The Hepatitis B vaccine is not only associated with liver disease, it causes it. The specific harm done is known, clearly documented. Low doses of the hepatitis B vaccine with aluminum adjuvant results in loss of mitochondrial integrity, cell death, and apoptosis, particularly in liver cells.

In a flashback as intense and disturbing as a war trauma, Dow Chemicals is setting up the conditions for the return of one of the main toxic ingredients in Agent Orange -- a chemical which it manufactured for use in Vietnam, and which was linked to over 400,000 birth defects among those exposed there.

A newly published study is destined to reignite the decades old controversy about aspartame's safety, or lack thereof. Aspartame converts to formaldehyde and formic acid, which are highly toxic to the body, but the nervous system in particular.
The tide is turning. When once it was unheard of for a doctor's opinion to be challenged, today's patients are getting second and third opinions, seeking out alternative care and pursuing natural, organic solutions to their health issues.

On the Veg of Reason. Vegetarian...carnivore.....which, if either, is the definitively 'better' one to be. On the way to what I will propose is the real answer, we can certainly explore reasons of ethics, health, or ecology.

Living In A Brave New World. Phlebovirus is one of five genera of the family Bunyaviridae, that typically uses the sandfly as a vector for spreading disease. Could this virus jump into a new species, the tick? They can survive, but can we? A different approach to healing through homeopathy.

Many things are being altered right before our eyes, mostly without your consent, or maybe knowledge. These changes are from funded and classified experiments, accidents, and new science with creepy 'modern' agendas. This sort of broad scale change is unfolding in nearly every facet of our lives. But the signs and symptoms already indicate that not everything is too good for health. Lets start with food for example. The bioavailability of nutritional benefits seems to be getting...

On Jan. 10th, 2010, the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, administering bivalent oral polio vaccine (bOPV) to two infants at the Mahabodhi Temple Complex in the Indian state of Bihar, Buddhism's holiest site – the very place where Guatama Buddha was said to have attained enlightenment approximately 2500 years earlier.
Apples of course have a reputation for keeping the doctor away and now science finds that both apples and pears may keep strokes away. In the first study of the color of produce, Dutch researchers found that the white flesh of fruits and vegetables may protect against stroke. Other colors, not so much.

Astaxanthin is a uniquely therapeutic carotenoid antioxidant that gives seafood, e.g. shrimp and salmon, its pink color. This phytonutrient is produced naturally in specific algae that pass on its free radical scavenging effects to the sea animals that eat them.
We’ve all heard this from a despairing dieter: “Just thinking about dessert (or pasta or bread or chocolate) makes me fat!” You may have said it yourself. But could it actually be true?

The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation has been pouring millions of dollars into projects aimed at supporting the health of folks in developing countries. But where is all the money actually going? Developing water purification systems? Nutritional support aimed at immune optimization? Providing shelter and medical facilities for the homeless? Not even close.

How long will it take medical doctors and their patients to see the truth? Will it take being physically blinded before they arrive at this awareness? Eye-associated adverse effects, including loss of vision, may be the tipping point when it comes to recognizing the profound range of damaging health effects associated with statin drug use
Millionaire vaccine inventor and mandatory vaccine advocate Paul Offit recently released a short VIDEO for doctors on medscape. Here is a transcript of the speech. This statement that outlines Offit’s personal belief system could be a prelude to the legal removal of all philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions in the United States of America. This is something that Offit has been working toward for years, and the likely end-purpose of his series of books.
Have you ever thought about your cookware increasing your risk for Breast Cancer? Modern cookware is designed to support our fast pace lifestyle: "no-mess and easy to clean". However, that "no-stick and easy-clean-up" comes with a high price.
You already know that brown rice is a nutrition powerhouse compared to white rice. But you can do even better. Discover the benefits of black rice.
How living things get to be what they are is a question that has occupied philosophers and scientists for a very long time. In the past two or three hundred years, the focus has been on what Gregor Mendel has called units of heredity, or the physical elements that are transmitted from parents to offspring. These are now called genes, and have become an integral part of the conversation about human beings and their health.

The Paleo — prehistoric, or early human — diet seems to create more questions than answers. This is because its premise is based on a theory that eating like primitive humans is the closest diet to perfect. But the biggest problem comes in an attempt to identify what early bipeds really ate without considering a host of other important factors ranging from stomping grounds to food availability and everything in between.

What happens when we take a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical and pitch it against a farm-aceutical one, ginger? Acid-blockers are taken by millions around the world, daily, but they carry severe unintended, adverse health effects, not the least of which are gastric cancer. Ginger, on the other hand, has over 100 potential side benefits. So, which is more logical to use as a medicine?
Just because you inherited some "bad genes" from your parents and grandparents, doesn't mean you are doomed to suffer their diseases. A healthy diet, including olive oil, can modulate the effect of these genes

A disturbing trend has taken root in America. Mandating chemotherapy in children is equivalent to requiring parents to let others poison their children with chemicals that are themselves classified as carcinogenic. If a parent has not the authority to decide how or what their own child is treated, is the State or are medical institutions essentially laying claim to owning that child's body?
There is an invisible war being waged, right under your nose, on your plate and at the end of your fork. Genetic modification has dramatically transformed not only our food, our biosphere, but also our bodies.

Despite intense protests from consumer groups and environmentalists, genetically modified organisms, (GMOs) foods have been dubbed as the 'human feeding experiment' and are continuing to be integrated into the food supply. Most of us do not even know the extent of it, as it is not in mainstream news.

Over 30 billion dollars worth of this drug is sold annually and yet it may be benefiting no one. In fact, there are over 300 adverse effects associated with its use, not the least of which is the weakening of the heart muscle. In order to cover-up the symptoms of statin-induced muscle damage new "diseases" have been coined, including polymyalgia rheumatica.
Last year I wrote a document entitled "The Vitamin C treatment of Whooping Cough" in order to meet the needs of parents who seek treatment that is safe and effective. I have first hand experience of its effectiveness and there is old literature to suggest that even low doses of Vitamin C help reduce the severity and duration of the cough.

Peering into the politics of the food industry is like getting a peek behind the curtain where the Wizard of Oz is working the controls. It seems quite obvious that food giants like Kellogg work hard to become reputable and good not by the products they produce, but by the friends they make. You really have to look at the whole picture to see what's going on in the PR arena to understand why, in the end, the consumer gets it in more ways than one.
With no pretensions or aspirations for superfood status, the lowly cucumber still offers a surprising range of nutrients, and even some recently discovered health benefits for diabetics. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy its refreshing flavor paired with avocado is this quick and easy cold soup.

Rumors regarding the development of a 'digital pill' with a microchip inside have been circulating for some time, but today, the FDA actually green lighted the product. The company, Proteus Digital Health, gained FDA approval for its 1 square millimeter device (the size of a grain of sand), which it believes will "shift the care paradigm" into an era of digital medicine.

The most arduous experience of parenting for me has been weathering the unrelenting stream of shots fired by the seemingly tireless dilemma cannon. With every metaphorical cannonball coming at me at hurtling speed, there is a choice to be made between at least two courses of action...or inaction. Do I go with the flow and allow the outcome of this moment to be organic?

Does the common use of the word "disease" bypass critical reasoning to effectively mislead scientific thought? Modern medicine describes hundreds of individual "diseases." So Just What Is Disease? A grand unified theory....
Laetrile and Amygdalin have been used successfully around the world for the reversal of many types of cancer. The Hunza tribes in the Himalayans are virtually cancer free, which has been attributed to their daily consumption of apricot pits and millet, both which contain amygdalin.

Several decades ago the modern world went crazy with its dietary habits. People were told to stop eating fats because they led to weight gain and heart disease. The government was behind this advice as well as the American Heart Association, hospitals, manufacturers of cholesterol-lowering drugs, food manufacturers, dairies and doctors.

A newly published article written by a former WHO vaccine committee member, has revealed that estimates for pertussis vaccine efficacy have been greatly inflated because of inaccurate case definitions adopted by the WHO in 1991 which required laboratory confirmation and 21 days or more of paroxysmal cough, excluding and therefore concealing a veritable submerged iceberg of vaccine-resistant cases of pertussis infection.
Our scientific dogma says that the latest research is the closest to the truth; yet as soon as new research comes out, it will be obsolete. This paradigm always ignores context. For example, for the past 15 years it has become assumed truth that a low fat diet is a healthy diet. The same people who thirty years ago used to urge us to eat plenty of meat and cheese, shifted to encourage us towards vegetables and low fat salad dressings

A recent news story described a newborn being taken away from her mother shortly after birth because of the mother's refusal to accept a Hepatitis B vaccine. In my law practice, I also hear stories from time to time about newborns being vaccinated in the hospital after birth without the parents' permission and against the parents' wishes. Most of the time, these kind of problems are avoidable with a information about your rights and some common sense preparation.

Mineral oil is everywhere these days: in our food, in our cosmetics, and in our drugs. But did you know it is also accumulating in our organs and that you can do something about that?
The human body's entire metabolic process depends on one critical factor - the pH of the plasma fluids. The pH scale is very simple. The lower the readings on the pH scale are acidic and the higher readings are more alkaline. Through homeostasis, the body maintains a healthy plasma pH of 7.4. Although the pH of the body will fluctuate with meals, exercise, stress, hormones and sleep, a healthy and balanced saliva pH should be between 7.0 to 7.5.
