Lemons for Life!Lemons were originally developed as a cross between the lime and the citron and are thought to have originated in China or India, having been cultivated in these regions for about 2,500 years. While most lemons are tart, acidic and astringent, they are also surprisingly refreshing. Lemons, like other fellow citrus fruits, are an excellent source of vitamin C (ascorbic acid), which is a powerful water soluble antioxidant which is helpful in preventing scurvy. Lemons also contain a variety of phytochemicals (hesperetin, naringin, and naringenin). Â Naringenin is found to have a bioactive effect on human health as antioxidant, free radical scavenger, anti-inflammatory, and immune system modulator. This substance has also been shown to reduce oxidant injury to DNA in the cells in-vitro studies. In animal studies and laboratory tests with human cells, compounds in lemons called "limonoids" have been shown to help fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lung, breast, stomach and colon. Lemons are an excellent source of citric acid, which is a natural preservative,Â aids digestion andÂ helps dissolve kidney stones.Â Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the morning is a great liver detoxifier and cleanses the kidneys and the digestive system. It helps the body in the removal of toxins and provides you with a great overall detox. Lemons contain pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to help with weight loss. Also, lemons can literally slow down the absorption of sugar into the body.Â Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar willÂ help change your digestive system to a more alkaline environment, thus killing off parasites, which thrive in an acidic environment. Lemon poultices applied overnight are a good home remedy for corns and calluses. Place a slice of lemon on to the corn, and secure it with a bandage. Dabbing the affected area with lemon essential oil also helps accelerate the healing process. To repel insects, add 15-20 drops of lemon oil to a cup of water and spray into the air. It smells great and repels insects at the same time. Believe it or not, lemon peels contain 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier. Â So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer!
Are You Ready for ObamaCare Home Visits?
By: Dan CalabreseThis time the left can't say, "That's not in the bill!" It's in the bill.Â Health and Human ServicesÂ is making grants to states and agencies who are willing to perform "evidence-based home visits" connected to ObamaCare.Â What is the purpose of these visits? The grant guidelinesÂ don't exactly say, but they do spell out in detail who might receive them: a)Â Â Â Â Eligible families who reside in communities in need of such services, as identified in the statewide needs assessment required under subsection (b)(1)(A). b)Â Â Â Low-income eligible families. c)Â Â Â Â Eligible families who are pregnant women who have not attained age 21. d)Â Â Â Eligible families that have a history of child abuse or neglect or have had interactions with child welfare services. e)Â Â Â Â Eligible families that have a history of substance abuse or need substance abuseÂ treatment. f)Â Â Â Â Eligible families that have users of tobacco products in theÂ home. g)Â Â Â Eligible families that are or have children with low student achievement. h)Â Â Â Â Eligible families with children with developmental delays or disabilities. i)Â Â Â Â Â Eligible families who, or that include individuals who, are serving or formerly served in the Armed Forces, including such families that have members of the Armed Forces who have had multiple deployments outside of the United States. By "eligible families" they presumably mean eligible for premium subsidies, and that covers a whole lot of people. As for the categories offered here, it seems just about everyone would fit into at least one of them, yes? Why do you need toÂ get aÂ visit from someone connected to ObamaCare because of your child'sÂ grades? Tobacco use? Not wise, but not against the law, so why do they need to come and see you about it? Interactions with child welfare services? A serious matter, but what exactly is the reason the federal government wants you toÂ get aÂ visit in connection with ObamaCare? You realize what this is, right? Once the government (or "society" as liberals are fond of saying these days) is responsible for subsidizing yourÂ health care, they've got an inherent interest in your lifestyle. They've got a financial stake. If you were just paying the bills yourself, it would affect no one but you. But now that we've got a system of third-party payers mandated and subsidized by the government, it's no longer justÂ your businessÂ if you smoke or, I guess, if your kid gets poorÂ grades. You willÂ get aÂ visit! Many of us warned of this sort of thing during the original debates. It's bad enough that anÂ insuranceÂ company gets to question you about this stuff, but when someone backed by the force of law can knock on your door and demand to know why you smoke . . . now do you see why Ted Cruz talked all those hours? Government Shut Down Won't Actually Shut Down Government" by Paul Joseph Watson... It turns out that the ominous "government shut down" isn't so apocalyptic after all since it won't actually shut down government because the vast majority of federal services and activity will continue as normal. In addition, the same thing has happened _ without dire consequences _ no less than 17 times over the past three decades. The dispute over Obamacare means it isÂ "99.9%"Â certain that the US government will "shut down" on October 1st because lawmakers have failed to pass legislation that will authorize the government to spend money to fund its operations from the beginning of the new fiscal year. However, as theÂ Washington Post highlights, the same "shut down" has occurred 17 times since 1977. Most of the previous shut downs lasted from a few hours to a few days. The longest ran for 21 days from December '96 to January '97 during the presidency of Bill Clinton. Obama supporters and Democrats have attempted to portray a potential government shut down as something approaching a doomsday scenario, most notably Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, who hyped the prospect of it "as dangerous as the breakup of the Union before the Civil War." In reality, key functions of the government will continue to operate as before even in the event of a "shut down".

The Fairytale of “Herd Immunity”The "herd immunity" theory was originally coined in the 1930s by a researcher named A.W. Hedrich. He had been studying measles patterns in the USA since 1900 (before any vaccine was ever invented for measles) and he observed that epidemics of the illness only occurred when less than 68% of children had developed a natural immunity to it. Hedrich's "herd immunity" theory was, in fact, about natural disease processes and had nothing to do with vaccinations. Over the next half century, some of those who worship at the altar of "modern medical mysticism" (vaccinologists) adopted the phrase and magically increased the figure from 68% to 95% (with no scientific justification as to why) and then stated that there had to be 95% vaccine coverage to achieve immunity. Essentially, they took Hedrich's study and manipulated it to promote their own vaccination programs.
Now, over 80 years since Hedrich developed his theory, the mainstream media and medical mafia are attempting to keep vaccination rates high by mis-using his concept of "herd immunity" and pitting parent against parent.Â What better way to keep Mr. and Mrs. Jones vaccinating "Junior" than through good old fashioned peer pressure and the fear that their next door neighbor won't let Johnny come over and play because Junior isn't vaccinated. A very powerful influence of behavior is it not? The "guilt trip" method is a common vaccine marketing technique. If a parent is concerned, say about the ingredients in the shot for their child, they are told that they "have to" vaccinate for the greater good of all other children to prevent the spread of disease in the community. What a bunch of bunk. As I have showed with numerous graphs and charts in this chapter, much to the dismay of vaccination proponents, outbreaks still occur in groups of children who have been fully vaccinated.My friend, Dr. Russell Blaylock MD, a retired neurosurgeon, says the fact that vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. According to Dr. Blaylock, "When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades. If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations."
We have an ever growing (and desperate) propaganda campaign based upon smearing those who are anti-vaccine and blaming every failure on their unwillingness to submit to the needle. Opponents to forced vaccinations are referred to as denialists, kooks, quacks, uneducated, confused, and enemies of public safety. This desperation is based upon their fear that the public might soon catch on to the fact that the entire vaccine program is based upon unscientific drivel, nonsense, fear, and concocted fairy tales.If you are a parent who chooses to vaccinate, note that the concept of herd immunity as it is erroneously applied to vaccines is being used to manipulate you into using scorn and fear to pressure family and friends within your circle of influence into accepting vaccination against their will. Without the mantra of "herd immunity," the medical mafia dons wouldn't be able to justify forced mass vaccinations. Please remember: Scientific fraud isn't the exception in modern medicine; it is the rule. Most of the "science" you read in today's medical journals is really just corporate-funded quackery dressed up in the language of science. Hey, what's that chuckling noise I hear? It must be those "liability-free" Big Pharma companies and vaccine-pushing doctors laughing all the way to the bank.Â Don't dare get in the way of their gravy train or prepare to be run over. Bottom line: Vaccines are medical fascism based on voodoo science and fraudulent data. They cause disease, disability, and even death. Hygiene and sanitation, not vaccinations, have resulted in the decrease of nearly every infectious disease over the past century.
Turmeric – Bright Spice of LifeTurmeric (curcuma longa), a bold bright yellow spice native to Southeast Asia, is a true "super food" shown to have remarkable healing properties. The use of turmeric can be dated back as far as 3,000 BC, and Marco Polo mentioned it in his notes as early as 1280 when speaking of his travels to China. It has been used for thousands of years in India as a dye and during medieval times, turmeric was actually referred to as "Indian saffron." Turmeric has been found to be effective when used for peptic, gastric and duodenal ulcers as well as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).Â More recently it has been found through research to be helpful in the treatment of several different forms of cancer, including colon cancer, duodenal cancer, leukemia, mouth cancer, stomach cancer, and even pancreatic cancer. That's right!Â A Phase II clinical trial conducted at MD Anderson Cancer Center found that turmeric was equal to or better than all currently available FDA approved drugs for pancreatic cancer, except that it does not cause the same negative side effects. When combined with other powerful nutrients like fish oil, olive oil, and/or black pepper, turmeric's anti-cancer effects are even further amplified, as the spice is not very well absorbed by the body on its own. Turmeric can also protect cells against xenoestrogensÂ ("synthetic" estrogens) because it can fit to the same receptor as estrogen or estrogen-mimicking chemicals. Â In a study on human breast cancer cells, turmeric reversed growth caused by a certain form of estrogen by 98% and growth caused by DDT by 75%. Concerning Alzheimer's disease, turmeric inhibits formation of, and breaks down, Amyloid-beta oligomers (entwined fibres) and aggregates (lumps). In other words, it keeps the brain neuron synapses free of plaque and keeps the brain functioning normally.Â Also, a number of studies have suggested that curcumin (the biologically active constituent in turmeric) protects against Alzheimer's disease by turning on a gene responsible for the production of antioxidants. A December 2003 study published in the Italian Journal of Biochemistry discussed curcumin's role in the induction of the heme oxygenase (HO) pathway, a protective system that (when triggered in brain tissue) causes the production of the potent antioxidant "bilirubin," which protects the brain against oxidative (free radical) damage. Turmeric also has been shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease. As I've mentioned before, cholesterol is essential for life, and the role which cholesterol plays in heart disease is misunderstood. According to recent research at Harvard, the primary causes of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries which leads to heart disease) are inflammation, lesions, and plaque in the arteries caused by *SUGAR* which causes insulin to be released.Â Insulin causes lesions in the endothelium of the arteries that become clogged with cholesterol.Â So, cholesterol gets the blame, but the real culprit is sugar. Turmeric can help fight inflammation in the body (and arteries), and this subsequently helps prevent heart disease. Turmeric can alsoÂ help the body detoxify and protect the liver from the effects of toxic drugs (including "legal" prescription drugs), alcohol, pesticides, heavy metals, and countless other chemicals.Â The liver's main job is to expel these toxins from your bloodstream so you can continue to live. But if your body is overloaded with these harmful substances, your liver is going to need a "boost." According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, curcumin stimulates production of bile by the gallbladder. The liver uses bile to eliminate toxins, and bile also rejuvenates liver cells that break down harmful compounds. For this reason, turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to treat digestion and liver disorders. I like sprinkling turmeric on scrambled eggs (free range, of course), omelets, and also in egg salad. Another interesting way to benefit from turmeric is to take it in the form of hot tea. Just boil water, add turmeric powder, grated ginger, and a little raw honey or stevia.Â Add some almond milk and enjoy!
The HIV-AIDS Myth
Ask your physician where AIDS came from and he/she will probably tell you the epidemic started when monkeys or chimps in the African bush transferred the AIDS virus (aka HIV) to a person while butchering primate meat for food or through an animal bite. Others will tell you that a homosexual and a monkey fell in love and … well … the rest is history. Regardless of the hypothetical origin, the fact of the matter is that there is no relationship between AIDS and HIV. It is a myth… a fairytale… a fable…. a legend…
The multi-billion dollar HIV/AIDS industry is based on the monumental myth that AIDS is a disease caused by the "HIV" virus. The truth of the matter, which I will attempt to prove in this section of the book, is that the diagnosis of "HIV positive" means nothing of any relevance to health. It can be triggered by vaccines, malnutrition, the flu, leprosy, hepatitis, MS, measles, papilloma virus wart, pneumonia, antibiotic damage, Epstein Barr virus, glandular fever, malaria, syphilis, and over fifty other conditions. A diagnosis of "HIV positive" is like a diagnosis of "Yes, he's breathing." However, "HIV positive" has created the "AIDS" epidemic and the multi-billion dollar "AIDS research and treatment" racket.
There is no scientific evidence that exists today that proves the existence of HIV. No, I'm not saying that AIDS is fake. No, I'm not saying that people aren't suffereing from very real immune suppression disorders. They are. What I am saying is that HIV is entirely fake. There is no such thing as a virus (or retrovirus) that causes AIDS. You see, the modern medical mafia's explanations of HIV and AIDS are a monumental medical myth (at best) and outright quackery (at worst).
Here's why: HIV tests are protein tests. They look for reactions between proteins in the test kits and proteins in your blood. The only problem (well, actually one of many problems) with the HIV test is that it was constructed out of entirely normal proteins which occur in sick people and healthy people.Â According to the official HIV/AIDS myth, these proteins supposedly originated from some monkey (or chimp) virus.
My good friend, Liam Scheff, says it best in his book, Official Stories: "HIV infection is inferred from a test that, in fact, has no standards for determining the presence or absence of HIV infection and comes up positive for an unknown number of conditions. These include: Pregnancy, flus, colds, vaccination, drinking, drugging and sex. Or just being alive. Or being around animals. Or being an animal. A mouse, dog, or cow, for example. HIV is believed to be a retroviral particle, which is considered â€˜fragile, wily, never the same,' and which cannot be purified or isolated. Various photos of putative â€˜HIV' tend to resemble every other kind of normal budding particle coming out of both healthy and sick cells."
He continues, "Furthermore, HIV has never been observed in any way, shape, or form, eating, humping, squeezing, biting, being angry at, stimulating, flattering with false praise, or in any other way, molesting or infecting T-cells. How HIV causes AIDS remains a rather profound mystery. And, besides a bit of colorful language, that's still official. It's just not what they put on billboards."
Manufacturers of the HIV tests do not even claim that they work!Â Here are some disclaimers from the manufacturers themselves:
- "At present there is no recognized standard for establishing the presence or absence of HIV-1 antibody in human blood." ~ Abbott Laboratories
- "Do not use this kit [Western blot] as the sole basis of diagnosing HIV-1 infection."
- "...in the general population, which the CDC estimates to have a prevalence of HIV infection of 0.006%, using a test with a specificity of 99%, the result is that 94% of all positives will be false positives." ~ The Western blot
- "The Amplicore HIV-1 Monitor test isÂ not intended to be used as a screening test for HIVÂ or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV infection."
Huh? What did they say? Why would the manufacturers say such things? I'll tell you why. Because when someone tells them, "You lied to me; this test doesn't test for HIV. It's worthless. You ruined my life. I'm going to sue you!" The manufacturers will pull out the paper, flip them off, and say, "Get lost. We never said it tested for HIV." Imagine thatÂ ... HIV tests that are not intended to be used to screen for HIV!Â The fact is that AIDS industry and medical "experts" have stated, in no uncertain terms, that HIV tests are a complete and utter fraud that have given rise to the monumental myth that AIDS is a transmissible sexual disease.
The fraudulent HIV test is biased to give more false positives (actually all the test does is give false positives) for targeted groups _ namely blacks. Africans are being wiped out because of a false test. In Africa, they diagnose multiple distinct diseases as "AIDS," oftentimes without even administering a test!Â By claiming that almost thirty separate diseases are actually the untreatable, incurable, terrifying AIDS, Africans are given a death sentence, rather than treatment.Â If you get a chance, check out Dr. Robert E. Willner, who inoculated himself with the blood of Pedro Tocino (a HIV-positive haemophiliac) on live Spanish television. You can still watch the video on Youtube.
Of course, from a monetary perspective, the HIV test was a huge success. I mean, who doesn't know what "HIV-positive" means? And when you hear those words, much like the "big C" word, you are stricken with fear and panic. You see, when you combine the diagnosis of "HIV-positive" and the prediction (stated or implied) that "You will die of AIDS," you have one of the most impressive pieces of medical "black magic voodoo" in history. Heck, people have committed suicide on the basis of the ludicrous diagnosis of "HIV positive" alone! So, what do they want? "Give me the treatment!" And what was (and is) the treatment?Â Azidothymidine...
Azidothymidine (AZT) began as a "cancer drug" but was withdrawn for being too toxic. Sort of like being thrown out of the Gestapo for being too cruel, I suppose. Even though it had failed at cancer, AZT was resurrected and put through a sham trial. Despite the fact that 169 out of 172 people taking AZT died in the trial, it was released for use in people that were "HIV-positive."
Like most chemotherapy drugs, AZT works by stopping cell reproduction. It devastates the bone marrow, which, by the way, produces blood and also is a key component of the lymphatic system, producing lymphocytes which support the immune system. AZT is also a super-antibiotic. It destroys intestines, bowels, and livers.Â It is toxic. Check out the label below, which features a skull and crossbones.
The effects of AZT include cancer, hepatitis, dementia, seizures, anxiety, impotence, leukopaenia, severe nausea, ataxia, etc. and the termination of DNA synthesis. Nevertheless, AZT was distributed like candy to tens of thousands of healthy folks who were "HIV-positive," and the AIDS deathrate, which had been declining, mysteriously began to rise. Not too surprisingly, AZT eventually kills almost everyone who takes it.Â Like my friend Michael...
Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, I was a competitive bodybuilder. One of my buddies was a man named Michael. We trained at World Gym together in Austin, Texas. Michael was healthy. He was also gay. I still remember the day that Michael was told by his doctor that he was "HIV-positive." He dropped by my apartment, and I noticed that his normally tan face was white as a sheet. I knew something must be wrong. And he told me. The doctors were going to start him on AZT immediately.
Let's backtrack for a moment. Michael was healthy and strong. He was not sick. He didn't have any symptoms that I can remember. Until the day he went to the doctor for a checkup, we would train together in the gym, and he was as strong as an ox. His heart was healthy and his muscles were strong. Seriously. He probably was 180 pounds and in great physical condition... until they started him on AZT. Once he began the "treatment," he seemed to, all of a sudden, look sick. His complexion changed from tan to pale. His face became emaciated and his body began to shrivel up. I can still remember this very vividly. In my heart, I knew that something was wrong, but I was still too naÃ¯ve to understand (or wouldn't let myself believe) that they were killing him. And he died. Within three months of beginning treatment. A healthy thirty year old man was gone. He died alone in a hospital room, less than 100 pounds, with his liver destroyed. I still recall the night he died.
According to Dr. Peter Duesberg, "The most toxic drug that has ever been licensed for long term consumption in the free world. … AZT is a prescription drug and according to the manufacturer itself it causes symptoms that are indistinguishable from AIDS. So I would say it is not arrogant for me to say that AZT is AIDS by prescription."
Celia Farber, a rare journalist who tried to be honest about the AIDS epidemic, was at an AIDS conference in 2008, where she was talking to a representative of Glaxo, the company that manufactures AZT.Â She wrote up the following story for Liam Scheff and also posted to her website. She stated, "So speaking of reality, I wanted to ask you to tell me something honestly. And it's not an accusation, I just want to know your perspective. If I were to say to you, that it seemed clear toÂ usÂ all in the late 80s, that people were dying very rapidly from high dose AZT_not from â€˜AIDS' but from high dose AZT, I mean 1200 mg, 1000, mg, and so forth, the early years ... if I were to say that as a statement of fact, that high dose AZT was killing gay men outright in those years, would you think I was wrong?" The drug rep then answered resolutely, "Of course not, you'd be right." And then came the hammer. Looking right into my eyes, not even blinking, she said: "Why do you think we lowered the dose?"
Yep, the rep admitted that they were killing AIDS patients with mega-doses of AZT. According to Liam Scheff, in Official Stories, "by the mid-90s, AIDS doctors finally understood that they'd killed a hundred thousand young gay men and stopped giving AZT as a primary treatment and radically lowered its dose (down to 100 or 200 milligrams). The death rate followed suit and dropped down close to pre-megadose-AZT levels. It's a really, really funny story, isn't it? If you're amused by mass murder. Now AZT is pumped into pregnant women. That's the primary market for the drug. Pregnant women who test positive. On the drug they have more miscarriages, birth defects and deaths than those not poisoned to death. Not surprising, is it? Today the AIDS drug business rolls on, still making AZT and its many clones. In the mid-90s, they added protease drugs, which alter physiology, melt the fat in the arms and face, leaving skin and bones, whittling muscle to nothing, redistributing fat into humps on the neck and back, bloating the stomach beyond proportion and making legs into toothpicks. This is what these drugs do. It even says so on the warning labels. Guys go blind, lose part of their colon, have plastic surgeries to stuff silicon into their calves and under their cheekbones – it's a whole industry that rides codicil to the AIDS drug business."
AZT is yet another instance of Big Pharma and the medical mafia keeping us deaf, dumb, and blind to ourselves. We enthusiastically pay them to experiment on us, poison us, and kill us, with a smile on our face.
Radioactive Bluefin Tuna Caught off California Coast
By: Ann Werner
Every bluefin tuna tested in the waters off California has shown to be contaminated with radiation that originated in Fukushima. Every single one.
Over a year ago, in May of 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported on a Stanford University study. Daniel Madigan, a marine ecologist who led the study, was quoted as saying, "The tuna packaged it up (the radiation) and brought it across the world's largest ocean. We were definitely surprised to see it at all and even more surprised to see it in every one we measured."
Another member of the study group, Marine biologist Nicholas Fisher at Stony Brook University in New York State reported, "We found that absolutely every one of them had comparable concentrations of cesium 134 and cesium 137."
That was over a year ago. The fish that were tested had relatively little exposure to the radioactive waste being dumped into the ocean following the nuclear melt-through that occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in March of 2011. Since that time, the flow of radioactive contaminants dumping into the ocean has continued unabated. Fish arriving at this juncture have been swimming in contaminants for all of their lives.
Radioactive cesium doesn't sink to the sea floor, so fish swim through it and ingest it through their gills or by eating organisms that have already ingested it. It is a compound that does occur naturally in nature, however, the levels of cesium found in the tuna in 2012 had levels 3 percent higher than is usual. Measurements for this year haven't been made available, or at least none that I have been able to find. I went looking for the effects of ingesting cesium. This is what I found:
When contact with radioactive cesium occurs, which is highly unlikely, a person can experience cell damage due to radiation of the cesium particles. Due to this, effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding may occur. When the exposure lasts a long time, people may even lose consciousness. Coma or even death may then follow. How serious the effects are depends upon the resistance of individual persons and the duration of exposure and the concentration a person is exposed to.
The half life of cesium 134 is 2.0652 years. For cesium 137, the half life is 30.17 years.
The Fukushima disaster is an ongoing battle with no signs that humans are gaining the upper hand. The only good news to come out of Japan has later been proven to be false and was nothing more than attempts by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to mislead the public and lull them into a sense of security while the company searched vainly for ways to contain the accident. This incident makes Three Mile Island and Chernobyl pale in comparison. Those were nuclear meltdowns. A nuclear melt-through poses a much more serious problem and is one that modern technology doesn't have the tools to address. Two and a half years later and the contaminants are still flowing into the ocean and will continue to for the foreseeable future.
The FDA assures us that our food supply is safe, that the levels of radiation found in fish samples are within safe limits for consumption. But one has to question if this is true and, if it is true now, will it remain true? Is this, like the statements issued from TEPCO, another attempt to quell a public backlash in the face of an unprecedented event that, as yet, has no solution and no end in sight?
As for me, fish is off the menu.
Â Apple CiderÂ VinegarApple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is made by the fermentation of apple cider, and tastes like vinegar but with an "apple" twist. In the natural health crowd, ACV is well-known as a powerful detoxifying and purifying agent as well as internal cleanser. Â It was even used in the time of Hippocrates ("the father of medicine") as a remedy for many ailments. ACV contains many vital minerals and trace elements such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, sulfur, and copper. The amino acid in ACV is an effective antiseptic and antibiotic, whereas the acetic acid can aid in treatment of various fungal, bacterial, and yeast infections. For those with severe yeast problems, the symptoms may get worse initially when they begin taking ACV, caused by the die off of the yeast (a "Herxheimer reaction") when your body can't detox fast enough. It is actually a good sign. ACV mimics the acidic environment of the stomach and helps food to break down. Many people report reduced symptoms of reflux or heartburn after using ACV, which makes sense given the fact that these conditions are oftentimes caused by *too little* stomach acid, rather than too much. And like other acids, the acetic acid in ACV can increase your body's absorption of important minerals from the foods you eat. Therefore, it is possible that drinking a mild tonic of ACV and water just before meals might improve your body's ability to absorb the essential minerals locked in foods. Clinical studies have shown that it lowers blood pressure and also helps regulate insulin levels.Â How can ACV help regulate your insulin? One theory is that it might activate some of the digestive enzymes that break down carbohydrates into sugar, thus slowing absorption of sugar from a meal into your bloodstream. This gives your body more time to pull sugar out ofÂ your blood, preventing your sugar levels from spiking. Combine it with blackstrap molasses to relieve joint pain. ACV is also rich in enzymes and alkalizes your body (i.e., it raises your pH), which is a great way to help prevent cancer.Â And if you suffer from an insect bite, ACV can help alleviate the pain (and/or itch). We use Bragg's Organic ACV, since it is raw and unfiltered, unlike most vinegars which are filtered and pasteurized, rendering them basically "dead" from a nutritional standpoint.
Â Here Comes Flu Season!In January or February of each year, health "authorities" travel to Asia to determine which strains of the flu are currently active. Based on their findings in Asia, they assume that the same strains of viruses will spread to the USA by fall.Â In other words, they guess at the strain of flu that will hit the USA. If the viral strains circulating in the USA are not identical to those in Asia (which they never are since the flu virus mutates), then the vaccine you receive will be a complete dud (at best). According to the CDC, the majority of flu vaccines contain thimerosal. Some contain as much as 25 micrograms of mercury per dose. This means that it may contain more than 250 times the Environmental Protection Agency's safety limit for mercury. That's one good reason to avoid the flu shot, isn't it? For those of you who are still unconvinced, know that there's plenty of scientific evidence available to back up the recommendation to avoid flu vaccines. A study published in the October 2008 issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu had no impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons. The researchers concluded that "significant influenza vaccine effectiveness could not be demonstrated for any season, age, or setting." Research published in the September 2008 issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine also confirms that there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza and pneumonia in the elderly, despite the fact that vaccination coverage among the elderly has increased from 15% in 1980 to 65% now. In 2007, researchers with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Institutes of Health published this conclusion in the Lancet Infectious Diseases: "We conclude that frailty selection bias and use of non-specific endpoints such as all-cause mortality, have led cohort studies to greatly exaggerate vaccine benefits." Did you get that? Please allow me to translate. "We conclude that the tests are rigged and that the flu vaccine is worthless." Still not convinced? Check this out. A large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies involving over 260,000 children, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2006, found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo in children between the ages of 6 months and two years.Â Zero percent effective! In a review of 64 studies covering over 40 years, the Cochrane Database also reported that, for elderly living in nursing homes, flu shots provided "little or no effectiveness" at preventing the flu. But it's good for pregnant women, right? The CDC even states on their own website (www.cdc.gov): "If you're pregnant, a flu shot is your best protection against serious illnesses caused by the flu ... A flu shot can protect pregnant women, their unborn babies, and even the baby after birth." Au contraire! Documentation from the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) demonstrated that between 2009 and 2010 the mercury-laden flu vaccines increased Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems (VAERS) fetal death reports by 4,250% in pregnant women. The director of NCOW, Eileen Dannemann, indicated that despite these figures being known to the CDC, they still recommend the the flu vaccine containing mercury (Thimerosal) to pregnant women as a "safe" vaccine. Want more? OK. There was the 2012 study published in The Lancet, which (according to the vaccine-pushing CDC bureaucrats) established that the flu vaccine is 60% effective. But, is it really?Â My good friend, Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") had the audacity to actually read the Lancet study and crunch the actual numbers. How dare he! What did he determine about the study? The "60% effectiveness" claim is a total lie. In his own words,Â "What we found is that the â€˜60% effectiveness' claim is utterly absurd and highly misleading. For starters, most people think that â€˜60% effectiveness' means that for every 100 people injected with the flu shot, 60 of them won't get the flu! Thus, the â€˜60% effectiveness' claim implies that getting a flu shot has about a 6 in 10 chance of preventing you from getting the flu. This is utterly false. In reality ... only about 2.7 in 100 adults get the flu in the first place! ... The â€˜control group' of adults consisted of 13,095 non-vaccinated adults who were monitored to see if they caught influenza. Over 97% of them did not. Only 357 of them caught influenza, which means only 2.7% of these adults caught the flu in the first place. The â€˜treatment group' consisted of adults who were vaccinated with a trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine. Out of this group, according to the study, only 1.2% did not catch the flu. The difference between these two groups is 1.5 people out of 100. So even if you believe this study, and even if you believe all the pro-vaccine hype behind it, the truly â€˜scientific' conclusion from this is rather astonishing: Flu vaccines only prevent the flu in 1.5 out of every 100 adults injected with the vaccine!" www.NaturalNews.com
Honestly folks, this is truly amazing. Flu shots are 1.5% effective? Are you kidding me? That means that they have approximately the same efficacy as waving a magic wand, wearing a lucky hat, wishing on a four-leaf clover, or rubbing a rabbit's foot. Hey, let's not forget to pick up that lucky penny or knock on wood.Â Oh yeah, I almost forgot, cross those fingers too!What many people do not know is that death caused directly by the flu virus is very rare, despite the fact that the CDC has been telling the public for a decade that there are more than 200,000 estimated hospitalizations and 36,000 estimated deaths from influenza in the USA each and every year. Here's how it happened. In 2003, CDC employees used a convoluted statistical modeling scheme to "guesstimate" that 36,000 people die from influenza in the USA every year. The problem was that they counted not just deaths from influenza, but also threw in other respiratory, circulatory, cardiac, and pulmonary deaths they thoughtÂ mightÂ have been associated with influenza. Barbara Fisher, Co-Founder and President of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), analyzed the vital statistics data and concluded flu deaths peaked in 1941 at 21,047 and have been dropping ever since. Over the past decade, deaths from influenza ranged from a low of 494 (in 2010) to a high of 1,722 (in 2008). Meanwhile, on their own website, doctors at the CDC now sheepishly admit that the "CDC does not know exactly how many people die from seasonal flu each year."Â Having gotten that cradle to the grave flu shot recommendation firmly in place, they are backing away from the 36,000 influenza annual death figure. CDC now says that "only 8.5% of all pneumonia and influenza deaths and only 2.1% of all respiratory and circulatory deaths" are influenza related. Now compare those statistics to the following facts. As of the end of 2012, there were more than 84,000 reports of reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following influenza vaccinations made to the VAERS, including over 1,000 related deaths and over 1,600 cases of GBS. Wow! Looks like the vaccine is much more dangerous than the virus, doesn't it? Case in point. On December 2, 2011, seven year-old Kaylynne Matten was taken by her parents for her annual physical. During the physical Kaylynne was given a flu shot. Four days later she was dead. She wasn't even sick when she went to the doctor! The state health commissioner, Dr. Harry Chen (no, I'm not kidding...this is his real name), was "not convinced" the girl's death was from the flu vaccine, citing the "very rare" incidence of serious reactions to the flu shot and the huge numbers of people who receive them each year. Apparently Dr. Chen is not familiar with the VAERS statistics cited in the previous paragraphs. That's the problem! Every time a healthy child dies or is seriously injured by a vaccine, those who are responsible for determining the cause of death immediately rule out vaccines because they are "so safe" and serious reactions are "so rare," being completely ignorant of the thousands of injuries and deaths caused by the vaccine. And can we say "conflict of interest"?Â Dr. Chen's job is dependent on the sale of vaccines. That's what he does. He ensures that all of the people in his state are fully vaccinated. Without vaccines, Dr. Chen would be unemployed, and so would a whole heap of doctors! In the 2011 report, Dr. Chen was worried that people would "over-react" to Kaylynne's death, and he cautioned about "alarmist" reactions.Â Excuse me? We are not supposed to be alarmed? Clearly, Dr. Chen has become condescending and self-righteous when it comes to young children dropping dead for "no apparent reason." Dr. Chen is worried that if people become "alarmed" their concerns may lead them to avoid getting a flu shot. If they start looking into the dangers of flu shots, it's a very slippery slope. You know how it goes. Flu shot research is like "the gateway drug" that causes parents who to become "fanatics." We research the flu vaccine and the true dangers of the flu and before you know it we start to realize we've been lied to. From there it's all downhill for Dr. Chen and his cronies. As we become "hooked" on research we learn more and more about vaccines and the more we learn the more we realize that vaccines are dangerous and the risks of infectious diseases are small in comparison. Heavens! That would be a real tragedy for Dr. Chen, who is another example of the fox guarding the henhouse. How in the world can this vaccine-related death even be questioned? It's like saying "Jane Doe was crossing the interstate when she was hit by a taxi. Ms. Doe was taken to the hospital where she lapsed into a coma and died 4 days later. Her husband, John Doe, believes that it was the impact from the taxi that killed his wife. However, the coroner (who just happens to be married to the taxi driver) is not quite sure about the cause of death. Autopsy results are pending..." According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our time (with nearly 850 papers in peer reviewed journals): If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 (the years studied) his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is 10 times higherÂ than if he/she had one, two or no shots. Â As I mentioned earlier, flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury. One microgram is considered toxic. So, what should you to do prevent the Flu? Certain immune boosting supplements can help build your immune system and help prevent the Flu, but if you get the flu, you may want to try Elderberry (Sambucus Nigra). You see, Flu viruses are primitive organisms which cannot replicate themselves, thus they must use DNA from living cells in order to reproduce. Flu viruses invade cells by puncturing the cell walls with little spikes (called hemagglutinin) coated with an enzyme called neuraminidase, which helps break down the cell walls. Elderberry actually disarms these spikes and inhibits the action of this enzyme _ thus preventing Flu viruses from invading cells. Elderberry also activates the immune system. Best results are obtained when elderberry is taken at the onset of flu symptoms. My family takes Sambucol, a black elderberry extract, if we think we are getting the Flu. Multiple studies show that elderberry extract is extremely effective at curing up to 10 strains of the flu virus. In one study published in the Journal of International Medical Research, 90% of Norwegian influenza patients who took elderberry extract were back to normal within three days, compared to six days for the control group, which took placebos. Nearly all of the scientific studies conducted on elderberry have used a commercial product called Sambucol, which is available as a liquid supplement from a number of different companies.
Â September SummaryDuring September, I had the honor to be a guest on a "Super Roundtable" Discussion with two of my good buddies _ John B. Wells and Mike Adams. We talked about everything from GMOs to Fluoride to Vaccines to Eugenics and Depopulation. Make the time to watch the video. Here is the video. I had the honor of speaking at the Living Strong conference in Atlanta during September. It was humbling to speak to person after person who had benefited from reading "Cancer-Step Outside the Box." RSB and me had a blast. There were some awesome speakers, including Dr. Linda Isaacs, Chris Wark, Â Cherie Calbom, Dr. Judy Seeger, Dr. Veronique Desaulniers, and Wendy Hood. Here are a few photos from the weekend. Special thanks to Suzy and Jeff Griswold, Kevin and Courtney Campbell, Dr. Kate Cirillo, and Billy Echols!!
ÂSeptember was a big month ... the Super Roundtable with Mike Adams and John B. Wells, the Healing Strong Conference in Atlanta, my eldest daughter turned 13, and ... another 9/11 came and went. One of weekly radio shows with Robert Scott Bell, "Outside the Box Wednesday," happened to fall on 9/11/13. So, of course, we had to talk about all of the strange "anomalies" relating to 9/11, such as the "war games," the put options, NORAD stand down, impossible cell phone calls, free-fall collapses of steel buildings from "office furniture fires" (the only ones in recorded history), the "smoking gun" of 9/11 (WTC7 falling at free-fall speed without being hit by a plane – video to the left), Osama bin Laden denying involvement in 9/11, and Bush claiming to see the first plane hit the towers "live" before reading the children the goat book (even though the first plane strike into the WTC was not broadcast live). Check out the mp3 file. It's an eye-opener ... if you're willing to let your eyes be opened, that is... LISTEN TO THE SHOW. You may have heard the slogan, "Laughter is the best medicine." I wholeheartedly agree. So, here's a little humor to makeÂ you smile. 😉
Â Â OK, enough for this time. But stay tuned. My next monthly newsletter will have more great info.
And please remember that CANCER DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A DEATH SENTENCE!
Thanks and God bless.
