California farm recalls lettuce over contamination concerns | September 30, 2011 | CNN Wire | A California lettuce grower has recalled 2,498 cartons of chopped or shredded romaine lettuce shipped to wholesale food service distributors in 19 states and Canada over concerns the produce may be contaminated with the same bacteria that caused 13 deaths in an outbreak traced to tainted cantaloupes.

A young woman smokes cigarette in this file photo. (Getty Images)   Tobacco Companies Knew of Radiation in Cigarettes, Covered It Up | CARRIE GANN, ABC News | Sept. 29, 2011 | "Polonium 210 is a naturally occurring element found in the air, soil, and water and therefore can be found in plants, including tobacco," Sutton said. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Smoking anything can be dangerous, and although previous article points out a danger in smoking cigarettes, it should be common knowledge that breathing any kind of smoke, whether it be from exhaust pollution, camp fires, or cookouts, can be dangerous. What article points out when "reading between lines", it's not very relevant to actual safety concerns, though this does indicate a probable cover-up. Charcoal broiled animal carcass from barbeques, that "tempting smell" of burning flesh for many, actually has higher levels of carcinogen than cigarette smoke.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry's failed plot to force Merck & Co.'s Gardasil vaccine on millions of young girls in the Lone Star State has sparked renewed interest among Americans, as to what all the controversy is about concerning the vaccineThe truth about Gardasil, and why Rick Perry's endorsement threatened the health of millions | September 27, 2011 | Ethan A. Huff | NaturalNews | Not long after the vaccine was approved back in 2006, Gardasil's deadly side effects quickly began to emerge. Reports came in about young girls experiencing seizures and developing chronic neurological problems, as well as other conditions, immediately after receiving one or more of the three-part Gardasil vaccination schedule.

Pros and cons of going vegan | KING 5 HealthLink | September 19, 2011 | Dr. Barnard says a plant-based diet can help people lower their cholesterol, blood pressure, and lose weight. But it does require a lot of meal planning. Vegan convenience foods can help ease the transition, but dietitians say just because it's vegan, doesn't mean it's healthy. Read more...

Fahad Shadeed/Reuters Women in Saudi Arabia endure strict gender separation, including a ban against driving. Women to Vote in Saudi Arabia, King Says | NEIL MacFARQUHAR | September 25, 2011 | King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on Sunday granted women the right to vote and run in future municipal elections, the biggest change in a decade for women in a puritanical kingdom that practices strict gender separation, including banning women from driving.

In this July 15, 2011 photo, atop roughly two miles of ice, technician Marie McLane launches a data-transmitting weather balloon at Summit Station, a remote research site operated by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), and situated 10,500 feet above sea level, on top of the Greenland ice sheet. Climate scientists overwhelmingly agree that manmade greenhouse gases are warming the planet, accelerating the melt of Greenland's ice, and yet resistance to the idea appears to have hardened among many Americans. Why? "The desire to disbelieve deepens as the scale of the threat grows," concludes one scholar who has studied the phenomenon. Analysts now see climate as another battleground in America's left-right "culture wars." (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley) (Brennan Linsley)The American 'allergy' to global warming: Why? | September 25, 2011 (AP) NEW YORK — In the paper, Columbia University geoscientist Wally Broecker calculated how much carbon dioxide would accumulate in the atmosphere in the coming 35 years, and how temperatures consequently would rise. His numbers have proven almost dead-on correct. Meanwhile, other powerful evidence poured in over those decades, showing the "greenhouse effect" is real and is happening. And yet resistance to the idea among many in the U.S. appears to have hardened. Read more...

ECCO-ESMO: Hospitalization for BPH Linked to Prostate Cancer | Ed Susman, MedPage Today | September 24, 2011 | Reviewed by Robert Jasmer, MD; Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco. "We found that if the men underwent surgery for [BPH], the risk of prostate cancer death was increased nearly 8 times that of the general population." Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (also called BPH) is simply an enlarged prostate, and not indicative of cancer. This is simply another verification that invasive surgeries often lead to side effects they are supposed to prevent. Whether verified by research or not, we have witnessed how proper dietary guidelines along with proper mind / body / spirit allignment will often work much better than all conventional treatments combined. You are on your own, though, as there is no real funding for most holistic / natural remedies, that do exist, and do work.

Michael Jackson saw salvation in dangerous drug | LINDA DEUTSCH, AP - SFGate | September 25, 2011 | Michael Jackson was physically exhausted from a day of grueling rehearsals for his marathon 50-night comeback tour. But his nightly battle with insomnia had just begun. After showering and getting into bed, he called for his "milk," a powerful drug he had been using to escape into unconsciousness. Read more...

ENIGMATIC performer Antoinette Pienaar can be seen in Kathleen Winter’s documentary, A Shaman’s Apprentice, with herbal healer Oom Johannes Willemse.Harnessing healing power | September 23 2011 | Cape Times | Willemse is known as a seer, herb doctor, healer, storyteller, and teacher. Born on Breekkierie farm in the Kenhardt district, the eldest of 12 children, he obtained his knowledge of Karoo herbs, and other wisdom and stories, from his grandfather, Hansie.Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Herbal remedies and their countless uses are well documented for thousands of years, going back before pharmaceutical prescription drugs even existed. Many drugs are simply synthesized from these natural remedies, when herbs are much less expensive without numerous side effects associated from chemical derivatives. After extensive research in medical libraries, one will find herbs or other natural remedies behind many modern conventional approaches.

Bothered by bedbugs? Maybe you should be more bothered by the potentially dangerous insecticides often used to get rid of the creepy-crawly bloodsuckers.  Bedbugs? Fix may be worse than bugs themselves | David W Freeman | 09-23-2011 | (CBS/AP) A CDC report released on Thursday blamed one death and 80 illnesses on bedbug insecticides over a three-year period. Many of the cases involved do-it-yourselfers who misused the insecticides or used the wrong one. Most of the cases were in New York City, the home of several highly publicized bedbug infestations.

Prostate Biopsy Increases Risk of Hospitalization | Charles Bankhead | MedPage Today | September 22, 2011 | Men who underwent prostate biopsy were more than twice as likely to be hospitalized within 30 days compared with men who did not undergo the procedure, a study of Medicare beneficiaries showed. Read more...

The privacy curtains that separate care spaces in hospitals and clinics are frequently contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria, researchers said in Chicago this week.    Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/09/23/hospital-privacy-curtains-laden-with-germs/#ixzz1Yn0kj1nNHospital Privacy Curtains Laden With Germs | September 23, 2011 | Reuters - foxnews | "There is growing recognition that the hospital environment plays an important role in the transmission of infections in the health care setting and it's clear that these (privacy curtains) are potentially important sites of contamination because they are frequently touched by patients and providers," Dr. Ohl told Reuters Health.

Studies show exhaust fumes can thicken the blood making it more likely to clotCar fumes 'raise heart attack risk for six-hour window' | Michelle Roberts Health | 20 September 2011 | BBC News | But repeated exposure is still bad for health, they say, substantially shortening life expectancy, and so the advice to people remains the same - avoid as far as is possible.

The melons were shipped to at least 17 different states across the US between July 29 and Sept. 10. 8 Dead From Contaminated Cantaloupes | September 22, 2011 | NewsCore - FoxNews | Four outbreak-associated strains of listeria were traced to Rocky Ford cantaloupes produced by Jensen Farms in Holly, Colo. The Food and Drug Administration confirmed Monday that listeria was found in samples taken from a Denver-area store and the Jensen Farms' packing facility. Read more...

Clinton trumpets green investments for jobs | Sep 20, 2011 (Reuters) - Investments in energy-saving building retrofits and clean-energy projects can create hundreds of thousands of jobs and bolster the U.S. economy, former U.S. President Bill Clinton said on Tuesday. Read more...

Hospitals, drugmakers lash out at Obama deficit plan | David Morgan | 09-20-2011 | Reuters | Lobbyists vowed to fight proposals for Medicare, which covers the elderly, that are aimed at saving $135 billion on prescriptions by requiring drugmakers to provide steeper rebates similar to those for Medicaid, which covers the poor. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: For too long, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies' strong lobbying has caused conventional medical procedure to go beyond what is healthy, natural and affordable. When one actually researches the numerous natural / holistic remedies available, many existing since pre history, one realizes that short term profit has trumped common sense. In too many cases the natural approach works as well or better, without severe side effects, yet most are still not mandated or funded through government or insurance. When will this change???

Breast cancer patients with more stress in their lives were more likely to have aggressive tumors, researchers found. But they don't know whether stress made the tumors worse, or if the aggressive tumors caused more stress. (National Cancer Institute)Stress and aggressive breast cancer go together, study finds | Karen Kaplan, Los Angeles Times |September 19, 2011 | More specifically, the researchers found that stressed women were 38% more likely to have cancers that were estrogen receptor-negative. These tumors do not respond to therapies aimed at cutting off estrogen, which means that drugs like Tamoxifen, raloxifene (Evista), Arimidex and others will not help. After taking into account things like the women’s age and the stage of their cancer when it was diagnosed, the women who were more stressed were still 22% more likely to have cancers that were estrogen receptor-negative. Read more...

White fruits and vegetables may lower stroke risk | Serena Gordon, HealthDay - USAToday | 09/16/2011 | Every 25 grams per day of white fruits and vegetables consumed led to a 9 percent decrease in the risk of stroke, and apples and pears were the most commonly consumed "white fruit," according to the study, published in the November issue of Stroke. Read more...

Child abuse increased as economy crashed, study shows | Frederik Joelving | Reuters - MSNBC | 9/19/2011 | Although there is no proof that financial hardship itself is causing the uptick in abuse, earlier research has tied parental stress to child maltreatment. Read more...

Study suggests weight may affect food impulses | Reuters - Washington Post | September 19, 2011| Brain scans of thin people who looked at pictures of high-calorie foods showed increased activity in a region of the brain used for impulse control, but obese people showed little activity in this region, the researchers found.

15 Surprising Ways to Improve Your Cholesterol | Health - Transplant Speakers | September 15th, 2011 | Luckily, you don’t have to wait for a magic drug to improve your cholesterol. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: To lower LDL cholesterol, best option is the vegan diet, period.

What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth? | yesterday2221 | Sep 15, 2011 | YouTube | A time-lapse taken from the front of the International Space Station as it orbits our planet at night...

Lori Smith of Aliso Viejo with photographs of her son Nolan, who died of a drug overdose in January 2009, six months shy of his 16th birthday. A toxicology test turned up Zoloft, which had been prescribed for anxiety, and a host of other drugs that had not been prescribed, including two additional anti-anxiety drugs, as well as morphine and marijuana. (Liz O. Baylen / Los Angeles Times / September 18, 2011)Drug deaths now outnumber traffic fatalities in U.S., data show | Lisa Girion, Scott Glover and Doug Smith, Los Angeles Times | September 17, 2011 | Fueling the surge are prescription pain and anxiety drugs that are potent, highly addictive and especially dangerous when combined with one another or with other drugs or alcohol. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: It is now common knowledge that prescription pharmaceutical drugs are often more deadly than illegal street drugs like cocaine and heroin. Although extremely dangerous, any of these drugs are not as harmful as poisons and pesticides used in and around households while being sold in most every hardware, gardening, and construction material locations, that anyone regardless of age can buy.

Across the board legalization / decriminalization of all drugs would simply take the profit motivation out of trafficking, both pharmaceutical and street drugs. Cannabis would then be legal to grow for countless health benefits. This way people would have the capacity to do their own independent research, medicating themselves when necessary.

We could potentially save $trillions with a swift stroke of the pen, then open up wasted law enforcement funds to actually go after violent offenders, the really dangerous criminals. Included in this are Wall Street offenders, that have wasted countless $billions on shady business deals. With these laws would be required full disclosure on dangers from consumption to legitimately sell these drugs and chemicals, similar to what we have now, except many pharmaceuticals would be required to have a "poison" symbol on their label.

The Tea Party Solution: Just Let the Uninsured Die? | Dusty Rhoades | September 17, 2011 | The Pilot | See, here’s the thing: The only lives wingnuts really care about are ones that haven’t been born yet. Once you first see daylight, kid, you’re on your own. Don’t be poor, don’t lose your job, don’t get sick, and don’t make any mistakes like failing to buy insurance. Read more...

Apple Juice Safety Concerns Unfounded, Says FDA | Kristeen Moore | September 17, 2011 | ThirdAge | Apple juice safety hazards noted by television’s Dr. Oz are not backed by any notable scientific evidence, says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. According to the Associated Press, the FDA attacked the popular television doctor on his show, “The Dr. Oz Show” after he made alarming claims without explaining any of the details of his assertions. Read more...

Number of Kids Poisoned by Household Medications Up 28 Percent | COURTNEY HUTCHISON, ABC News | Sept. 16, 2011 | Every year, half a million kids age 5 and younger get into household medications and are poisoned. Though parents tend to believe that these tragic accidents will never happen to their kids, Dr. Randall Bond, a leading advocate for better prescription drug safety in the home, is proof that it can happen to anyone. Read more...

Lab Notes: Fighting Fat in the Brain | MedPage Today |September 16, 2011 | "Our study found that the mutant EGFR hijacks this system, enabling cancer cells to import large amounts of cholesterol through the LDL receptor, Paul Mischel, PhD, of the University of California Los Angeles, said in a statement. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Previous article indicates what we all should know: Excessive cholesterol in bodies from consumption of animal products can affect all parts of our bodies, including brains. Conventional protocol would suggest using drugs experimented with to control this. Yet we know that proper diet can often easily reverse symptoms without consumption of dangerous synthesized chemicals used in most pharmaceutical drugs.

Many scientists now collude that cancer cells are in fact indications of internal fungi that has simply gone out of control, or pockets [tumors] of pathogens / muck. Even these conditions can shift when "abnormal cells" are cleared by stopping flow of "anti life matter" [from eating junk foods and animal products] feeding these tumors / growths, supporting their growth. When they get out of control [pockets of anti life] "colonies" can break loose, causing metastasis that poisons our bodies.

When we eat correctly, balance helps bodies build immunity to abnormal growths and pathogens that can make us sick. This way we replace the muck with quality produce, nuts, seeds, fruits, legumes, mushrooms, etc. from most organic, natural sources helping us become stronger and healthier. ...and don't forget to move around, exercising all parts of our systems.

Robertson Stirs Passions With Suggestion to Divorce an Alzheimer’s Patient | ERIK ECKHOLM | September 16, 2011 | NYTimes | With his suggestion this week that a man whose wife was far “gone” with Alzheimer’s should divorce her if he wanted a new companion, the television evangelist Pat Robertson stumbled into treacherous moral terrain, setting off storms of criticism and questions about a disease that shatters lives and families. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: Whether or not a person should divorce a partner with or without Alzheimer's or other dementia oriented diseases, should always be left up to the individual[s] involved. Pat Robertson to suggesting divorce is fine, is in fact asking for criticism, as his opinion should be simply left as a "no comment". As in all religion and politics individuals have their own specific belief along with ramifications associated.

When we see partners or good friends involved in less than healthy lifestyles, we can still care for them without directly supporting their activities. When we see them get sick knowing it could be avoidabled simply by lifestyle change, we can still love them. Yet it makes it difficult for me, as sometimes I think: "Why should I take direct responsibility for results of their less than favorable actions leading to this"? At that point I feel all cases still have to be treated different at times before making a blanket opinion.

Bottom line: Early in a marriage, or often before getting married, we might have a partner with habits known to cause death at times. When one is willing to make a viable change, support them. When they are not, it's best to be prepared in advance for resulting problems. This should be a major consideration before even making a lifetime committment, or be ready for less than favorable results.

Studies showing that players of action video games are smarter than non-gamers in certain key ways are mostly flawed, according to a paper by psychology researchers published this week.Researchers Slam Studies Claiming Video Games Make Us Smarter | Damon Poeter September 16, 2011 | PCMag | The paper, written by Walter Boot and Daniel Blakely of Florida State University and Daniel Simons of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology and published in Frontiers in Cognition, disputes the methodology of various studies that have found that frequent action video game players outperform non-gamers in areas of perception and cognition. Read more...

Medical societies maintain secret financial ties to drug companies | September 15, 2011 | PF Louis | NaturalNews | These Big Pharma connections push dangerous drugs into the collective consciousness while keeping safe and inexpensive non-drug health solutions out of public awareness. Read more...

Professors offer more than $10,000 for proof that Bachmann’s story about HPV is true | Chris Moody | The Ticket - Yahoo! | Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann's story about a woman who claimed that her daughter suffered "mental retardation" after receiving a vaccine against HPV could fetch the woman's family thousands of dollars. But the family can only collect if Bachmann or the unnamed woman can prove the story is true. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: I am not a big fan of vaccines. Neither am I a big fan of Bachmann style politics. Yet this case does bring up a major issue, regarding HPV and other vaccines. Where do we draw the line between prevention and the use of dangerous pathogens to fight disease? Bottom line: Excessive use of vaccines has been proven to cause "mental retardation" and/or "autism", though many medical professionals are willing to dispute this fact.

In a spirited showdown on "Good Morning America," ABC News Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser, left, confronted Dr. Mehmet Oz on what he called "extremely irresponsible" statements made on "The Dr. Oz Show," concerning arsenic in apple juice. (ABC News)Apple Juice and Arsenic: Dr. Besser vs. Dr. Oz | CARRIE GANN, ABC News | Sept. 15, 2011 | In a spirited showdown on "Good Morning America " today, ABC News Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser confronted Dr. Mehmet Oz on what he called "extremely irresponsible" statements made on "The Dr. Oz Show" show Wednesday concerning arsenic in apple juice. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a classic example showing how medical doctors and biochemists often confuse natural organic formulas with synthesized chemicals. Research indicates that small amounts of naturallly occuring arsenic in foods like apple juice can actually be healthy in small quantities. It is a natural alkalizer, helping body maintain ph balance.

President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush observe a moment of silence Sunday at the National September 11 Memorial during a ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the attacks at World Trade Center.  Healing words break silence at Ground Zero | September 12, 2011 | The New York Times - Omaha World Herald | |NEW YORK — Just as Sept. 11 was unthinkable, Sunday was inevitable: the 10th anniversary of a day that stands alone. In history. In memory. Read more...

2 cases of new swine flu viruses reported | Tammie Smith | September 12, 2011 | ...Pennsylvania health officials reported that they had identified two additional children in that state with the new swine flu virus, and that all three children had attended an agricultural fair in southwestern Pennsylvania during the week of Aug. 13-20. Read more...

OF NOTE: In this case swine flu jumped from the pig directly to humans. Even handling contaminated pork can pass this illness. Proper cooking is to only way to avoid it, and eating the stuff often exacerbates symptoms when one is subject to the virus. Bottoms line: Eat well to stay well.

Practitioners of health qigong believe the exercises slow the aging process and prevent chronic illness. Tapping into self healing with qigong The ancient art of health qigong combines slow movements with breathing | KAREN GRAM | Vancouver Sun | September 11, 2011 | Health qigong is an important element of traditional Chinese medicine. Loosely translated, qi (or chi) means vital energy, and gong means work plus effort. Read more...

FROM EDITOR: On 09-11-2001 10 years ago, many of our lives were drastically changed. After being in a war since that time, many more are now aware that violent revenge does not really help. It is time for us to look inside for reconcilliation, using this as an opportunity to forgive ourselves and as well as others, then make necessary changes to survive instead of killing more lives, when it is not needed or helpful. To peace and prosperity...

Switching from burning coal to natural gas won't have an appreciable effect on global warming, at least not in the next few decades, a study suggests.Clean natural gas? Not so fast, study says | September 8, 2011 | Meanwhile, "clean" natural gas, touted by the industry and T. Boone Pickens, can be a mess to produce. An unknown amount of methane -- a potent greenhouse gas with far more heat-trapping potential than carbon dioxide -- leaks in the process of producing natural gas. Read more...

Talking -- or Not Talking -- Can Give Cancer Patients a Sense of Control | 09-09-2011 | HealthDay Yahoo! | Cancer patients said it helped to be able to tell even well-meaning family and friends that they needed space; that they needed to focus on themselves without needing to support others; and to avoid people who were sad or overly solicitous. Read more...

EDITOR'S COMMENT: I attempt to be open minded when reviewing articles like previous one. After being convinced conventional treatment is best scenario, most likely the case here, these "cancer patients" are strapped. They don't want to hear it, can't afford it, because they probably committed every thing they are worth for treatment, unless $millionaires with good insurance, to receive these treatments that can often run $hundreds of thousands. I personally have seen severe cancers completely reversed by simply eating vegan/raw, totally organic foods, without all the drugs, surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, followed by more drugs. No wonder they are so sick!...?

Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he would scuttle the new federal healthcare law if elected president. (Nati Harnik / AP / September 8, 2011)Texas healthcare system withering under Gov. Perry | Noam N.

If cannabis causes the munchies, how is possible that pot smokers are thinner than nonsmokers? Marijuana Slims? Pot Smoking Linked to Lower Body Weight | Maia Szalavitz | September 8, 2011 | Time / A new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology finds an intriguing connection between marijuana use and body weight, showing that rates of obesity are lower by roughly a third in people who smoke pot at least three times a week, compared with those who don't use marijuana at all.

Let's save the Earth to save ourselves
We need to do our part as ambassadors of the Earth, and help Her heal, as when She erupts like this we all feel it. I know this to be true: Mother Earth has feelings and a consciousness that goes beyond the limitations of our tiny human brain. She needs our support if we are all to survive. Let's start with practicing positive collective consciousness.

A surge of small earthquakes has been reported Tuesday Sept. 6, 2011, around Iceland's Katla volcano, but scientists said Tuesday there is no immediate concern that the increased seismic activity will trigger a dangerous eruption, although history has shown that when the Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupts, Katla isn't far behind. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)Seismic activity increases at Iceland volcano | GUDJON HELGASON | Associated Press | "It's one of the most feared volcanos, so we're closely monitoring it," said Pall Einarsson of the University of Iceland. "That said, it's normal for earthquakes to be detected around Katla. What's a bit unusual is that we're seeing swarms of small earthquakes, some occurring every 10 minutes or so." Read more...

Satellite gives better picture of solar flares' effects on Earth Deliver more energy than was thought: Big implications | Lewis Page | Science | 8th September 2011 | What is carefully not being mentioned here is the possibility of effects on the Earth's climate. The very idea that variations in the Sun can alter the environment on Earth has now become highly controversial, as it can distract from – or reduce the importance of – the issue of human-driven greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Read more...

The flights offered the most comprehensive look to date at greenhouse gases accumulating in the atmosphere, warming the planet and setting off chains of effects on climate.Global warming effect seen in pole-to-pole data-gathering flights | September 7, 2011 | LA Times | Scientists who have just completed several years of pole-to-pole flights have uncovered data that confirms some of the deep worries about human-generated global warming that had been predicted by computer-based mathematical models. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: One of the biggest challenges in news media today is misinformation, along with data or comments being taken out of context, to mean something else. A classic example is causes of global warming. Yes, Sun flares along with volcanoes, hurricaines, etc. definitely affect green house gases, radiation pollution, etc. Yet when adding this to human-generated pollution we have a huge problem unprecedented in its scale since pre history, if ever.

New findings show that variations in cloud cover cannot explain temperature changes as a result of global climate changeNew Research Examines Role of Clouds in Climate Change / Douglas Fischer and The Daily Climate | September 7, 2011 | ScientificAmerican | Myriad atmospheric events combine to drive weather and climate. That complexity has long stymied researchers trying to predict the impact that changes to the atmospheric system - notably the addition of billions of tons of greenhouse gases from industrial activity - will have on the Earth's climate.
