Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Maybe some day EPA and FTC will acknowledge that mercury contamination from vaccine propagation is a major contributor to large numbers of autism cases in children, but not holding my breath about restricting their use. Vaccine propagation is big business generating $billions per year. Vaccine manufacturers have been fighting this verfiable truth for a long time. Presently vaccine manufacturer's lawyers are fighting thousands of law suits against them for this reason.

Health freedom alert: Congressman Waxman sneaks anti-vitamin amendment into Wall Street reform bill / April 30, 2010 / Mike Adams / (NaturalNews) Of all the sneaky tactics practiced in Washington D.C., this recent action by Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) is one of the most insidious: While no one was looking, he injected amendment language into the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 (H.R. 4173) that would expand the powers of the FTC (not the FDA, but the FTC) to terrorize nutritional supplement companies by greatly expanding the power of the FTC to make its own laws that target dietary supplement companies.

Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Put into consideration that Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas was previously an Attorney paid by Monsanto. How else would you define this, other than "direct conflict of interests"? Wouldn't it be appropriate to "step down" for this case?

AP Photo/CPSC This undated handout photo provided by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) shows a Simplicity crib.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The previous article about peppers burning fat is most likely true, yet there can be side effects. A world champion Hapkido [martial arts] fighter once told me too much chile can lead to a "soft gut", so care must be taken. However, chiles are very good for eradication of parasitic conditions.

EDITOR'S NOTE: April 21, 2010 / This latest theme seems to center around mental health, so let's get real. Most diet programs have limited success, or we would not have such an extreme obesity challenge. Tests here help scientifically validate obesity with brain disfunction. Computer games exercising the brain have limited success. So what is the answer?

I say a lot has to do with proper nutrition, and hopefully postings here give better ideas and ideals. Along with eating pure foods, getting a broad spectrum of nutrient rich foods without the high levels of saturated animal fats is a good start, along with avoiding junk foods.

EDITOR'S NOTE: April 16, 2010... There is so much to be thankful for, even when times are challenging. Just look at all the chances we have to make correct choices. We keep getting more all the time and they often taste great!!! Even when we go for the unhealthy temptations, as least we know the difference.

EDITOR'S NOTE: In "common English" previous article translates: If you receive positive diagnosis for, or suspect you have [what they call] "Prostate Cancer" your long term odds of survival are "probably" much better with holistic and natural remedies than "their" suggested "conventional procedure". Yet because I do not have "MD" next to my name, just realize this is simply my "interpretation" of this press release. My opinion:

We are born with glands serving vital functions within our human systems. Having them surgically removed to relieve a "symptom", then following up with a big dose of deadly poison [chemotherapy] to "kill it"...??? ...And this is followed by more "Radiotherapy" [nuclear], then more dangerous drugs...??? Dear ones, come to your own conclusions. Thank you for understanding. ...And "their treatment" costs $hundreds of thousands each, times 1,000+ 'positive cancer diagnoses per day' in the U.S. ...??? Add it up, and subtract from that the costs saved with holistic and natural remedies known to work, the kinds "not funded" in the present Health Care Reform Bill...???

EDITOR'S NOTE: This week a report by Journal of the National Cancer Institute states eating fruits and vegetables does not significantly reduce the risk of cancer.

And what kinds of dangerous drugs, surgeries, chemotherpy, radiation treatements, followed by more dangerous drugs do they plan to tout next time? We have reversed cancers with fresh produce. Give me a break, guys. We have more important work to do than have major press support this nonsense by reporting this crap. ...And who paid for this study?

EDITOR'S NOTE: A few weeks back I got a severe aching back from over exertion while shoveling a huge amount of snow. Two days later the pain was so sever I could not sleep. An average person would have gone to a doctor, gotten a drug to suppress both the symptom and body's natural ability to heal itself, that could have led to a suggestion of surgery. Instead I got a massage [that Health Care Reform will not cover without MD permission] and through "self manipulation" was pain free within two days. I also used special fresh juices mixed with nuts and seeds for energy to mute the blockage causing pain. It worked, and back to life as usual - clean health without surgeries and drugs.

People continue to use when the stuff is around, and simply stop when it's gone, the researchers argued.  Radiation ups risk of breast cancer in young women / 04-05-2010 / Yahoo / NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Women treated with chest radiation for cancers in childhood or adolescence are at increased risk for breast cancer at a young age, and their risk does not appear to plateau over time, according to a new study. Read more...

EDDITOR'S NOTE: Just realize the previous report by the National Cancer Institue posted comments by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center of NYC that make a fortune from very dangerous radiation treatments, and they still suggest mammograms, also known to cause cancer at times from excessive radiation. My question: Why did they even bother reporting this, when they are still suggesting "more of the same"? For pertinent, well researched information: www.BreastHealing.info

Who owns your genes? Judge rejects company’s patent on breast cancer genes, but issue is not settled yet / April 01, 2010 / Deborah L. Shelton / ChicagoTribune / A federal judge this week threw out a Utah company's patents on two genes linked to breast and ovarian cancer, siding with scientists and health advocates who argue that the firm cannot legitimately patent a product of nature.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I have to agree that allowing patents on "products of nature" is both dangerous and inhumane. Now we have to get "sane Federal Judges" to retract court rulings that allow companies like Monsanto & Dupont from owning patents on genetically modified seeds, especially when these "contaminated lab produced" varieties can cross-pollenate with other plants, that are/were the natural heirloom varieties.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The previous posting is about a sick and questionable science at best. It brings to life visions of "Frankenstein" when one looks closely how much disrespect is extended to remains of deceased family and friends that have "signed away" their bodies to be used this way. Yet where is medical funding for pure foods that often reverse organ failure, when people are willing to eat correctly? Do "they" tell you that, or simply put victims in line for used body parts? Have you heard about those that import "used parts" from third World countries [I will leave out gory details]???
