Video: Extensive Research Shows Monsanto’s #1 Selling Herbicide Roundup Is Killing You by Anthony Gucciardi


Video: Extensive Research Shows Monsanto’s #1 Selling Herbicide Roundup Is Killing You

by Anthony Gucciardi

Natural Society,   28 June 2013

You are likely already aware of Monsanto’s crimes against humanity and nature, but are you aware that even major research institutions have shown time and time again that Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup has been linked to lethal conditions like Lymphoma and DNA damage?

It’s all available through the United States National Library of Medicine’s PubMed tool, which is actually a tool that allows you to crawl the world’s largest medical library for pieces of research. In this case, a voluminous amount of peer-reviewed research exists concerning the devastating effects of Roundup. Scientific studies that have linked Roundup to 44 different diseases, including Lymphoma, liver cancer, and Parkinson disease. And I’ve actually teamed up with Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo to give you an entire PDF detailing the numerous research pieces on Roundup that documents these dangers.

Now this PDF I just linked up is actually the result of extreme labor, and it’s usually sold to scientists and researchers for their own projects. I managed to deliver it free to NaturalSociety readers so that you will share this information and let your neighbors know that spraying their lawn with Roundup this summer to kill a few weeds is not a good idea. Because remember, Roundup is still selling in record numbers around the nation through outlets like Home Depot and Lowe’s.

Unknowing homeowners, landscapers, and what have you are going in, seeing this stuff on sale, and picking it up because the sign says it’s the most effective at killing weeds. And it surely is effective at killing weeds, it may also just take you down as well. To really understand this we have to go back to the dark history of Monsanto and the creation of glyphosate — the primary component behind Roundup that’s patented by Monsanto.

This is a highly toxic substance that was originally concocted by none other than Monsanto chemist John E. Franz back in 1970, and its responsible for the negative health conditions behind Roundup. And just like Monsanto’s former creations like DDT, PCBs, and Agent Orange, the massive death toll is completely denied for years and years (until it cannot be ignored anymore and is quelled via a financial settlement).

The difference is that now we have the means to assemble and stop Monsanto before more people are killed by its irresponsible creations that threaten humanity and nature equally. Join me in the Monsanto Video Revolt this July 24th and before, and let’s continue the resistance against this conveyor belt of disease known as Monsanto.

In an interview with Sayer on Monsanto’s Roundup, we actually discussed not only what this information means for humankind, but how we can use it to stop Monsanto:

ADHD a ‘Fictitious Disease’ Says the Creator of the Ailment by Mike Barret

ADHD a ‘Fictitious Disease’ Says the Creator of the Ailment

by Mike Barret

Natural Society, 28 June 2013


Did you know that The American Psychiatric Association estimates that 3%-7% of school-aged children have ADHD, while parents report that about 9.5% of children between 9- and 7 years old suffer from the condition? Although these statistics are alarming, they aren’t as shocking as the fact that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a completely made-up ailment, according to the “father” of ADHD, Leon Eisenberg, who made the shocking admission in the last interview before his death.

A psychiatrist and key player in the developmental research behind autism, ADHD, and psychiatry as a whole, Leon Eisenberg concocted the theory of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder decades ago. The disease first haunted the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as hyperkinetic reaction of childhood, but is now labeled as ADHD. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for Eisenberg’s theory on ADHD to become ‘concrete’ within the medical community, leading tens of millions of children to be heavily medicated with mind-altering drugs for virtually no justifiable reason.

There is no question that the psychiatric community and their bible-like text known as the DSM are fueling disease and widespread medication prescriptions. In a world where creativity is deemed a “mental illness” by scientists and profits are to be made by shrinks and pharmaceutical companies, is it any wonder that a large portion of the population is on medications for some type of ‘mental illness’?

“ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction,” said Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, back in 1998 about the phony condition.
Thanks to Eisenberg and the rest of the psychiatric community (including big pharma), approximately, 24,357,000 ADHD medications were prescribed and refilled to children and teens in 2009. In fact, there is a frightening new trend where children from low-income families are prescribed ADHD meds to boost their academic performance. That’s right, kids that aren’t even suspected of ‘having’ the phony attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The amount of children being fed ADHD medications has risen so high over the years that pharmacies are actually struggling to obtain enough of the active ingredient used in the drug to ‘treat’ the ‘disease’, Adderall.

Though Eisenberg admitted that ADHD was merely a theory on his death bed, it didn’t stop him and his colleagues from raking in the profits of unknowing parents and children. Which reminds us of something: it’s all about the money. Where there is no drug to profit from, create a new drug, and where there is no disease to profit from, simply create a new disease. It’s hardly surprising to hear that an astonishing 70% of the panel members of the DSM-5 reported having financial relationships with pharmaceutical companies. About 57% reported ties in the previous edition.

Don’t fall for the pill scare. Countless parents have discovered that ‘treating’ an ADHD-riddled child is as easy as altering the junk-food diet he/she has had for years. In addition to implementing dietary changes, there are also other powerful natural remedies for ADHD that any parent can utilize.

45 Uses For Lemons That You Will Benefit From










45 Uses For Lemons That Will Blow Your Socks Off

True Activist,  28 May 2013


Most people are familiar with the traditional uses for lemons to soothe sore throats and add some citrus flavor to our foods. However the diversityof applications for lemons farexceeds general knowledge and once you read the following list, you’ll likely want to stock at least a few lemons in your kitchen 24-7.

1. Freshen the Fridge
Remove refrigerator odors with ease. Dab lemon juice on a cotton ball or sponge and leave it in the fridge for several hours. Make sure to toss out any malodorous items that might be causing the bad smell.
 
2. High Blood Pressure
Lemon contains potassium which controls high blood pressure and reduces the effect of nausea and dizziness.

3. Prevent Cauliflower From Turning Brown
Cauliflower tend to turn brown with even the slightest cooking. You can make sure the white vegetables stay white by squeezing a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice on them before heating.
 
4. Mental Health
Lemon water can also prep up your mood and relieve you from depression and stress. Long distance walkers and world travelers as well as explorers look upon the lemon as a Godsend. When fatigue begins, a lemon is sucked through a hole in the top. Quick acting medicine it is, giving almost unbelievable refreshments.

5. Refresh Cutting Boards
No wonder your kitchen cutting board smells! After all, you use it to chop onions, crush garlic, and prepare fish. To get rid of the smell and help sanitize the cutting board, rub it all over with the cut side of half a lemon or wash it in undiluted juice straight from the bottle.
 
6. Respiratory Problems
Lemon water can reduce phlegm; and can also help you breathe properly and aids a person suffering with asthma.
 
7. Treating Arthritis and Rheumatism
Lemon is a diuretic – assists in the production of urine which helps you to reduce inflammation by flushing out toxins and bacteria while also giving you relief from arthritis and rheumatism.

8. Prevents Kidney Stones
Regular consumption of the refreshing drink — or even lemon juice mixed with water — may increase the production of urinary citrate, a chemical in the urine that prevents the formation of crystals that may build up into kidney stones.

9. Keep Insects Out of the KitchenYou don’t need insecticides or ant traps to ant-proof your kitchen. Just give it the lemon treatment. First squirt some lemon juice on door thresholds and windowsills. Then squeeze lemon juice into any holes or cracks where the ants are getting in. Finally, scatter small slices of lemon peel around the outdoor entrance. The ants will get the message that they aren’t welcome. Lemons are also effective against roaches and fleas: Simply mix the juice of 4 lemons (along with the rinds) with 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water and wash your floors with it; then watch the fleas and roaches flee. They hate the smell.
 
10. Anti-Aging
Lemon water reduces the production of free radicals which are responsible for aging skin and skin damage. Lemon water is calorie free and an antioxidant.

11. Fruit and Vegetable Wash
You never know what kind of pesticides or dirt may be lurking on the skin of your favorite fruits and vegetables. Slice your lemon and squeeze out one tablespoon of lemon juice into your spray bottle. The lemon juice is a natural disinfectant and will leave your fruits and vegetables smelling nice too.

12. Treat Infections
Lemon water can fight throat infections thanks to its antibacterial property. If salt water does not work for you, try lime and water for gargling.

13. Deodorize Your Garbage
If your garbage is beginning to smell yucky, here’s an easy way to deodorize it: Save leftover lemon and orange peels and toss them at the base under the bag. To keep it smelling fresh, repeat once every couple of weeks.

14. Keep Guacamole Green
You’ve been making guacamole all day long for the big party, and you don’t want it to turn brown on top before the guests arrive. The solution: Sprinkle a liberal amount of fresh lemon juice over it and it will stay fresh and green. The flavor of the lemon juice is a natural complement to the avocados in the guacamole. Make the fruit salad hours in advance too. Just squeeze some lemon juice onto the apple slices, and they’ll stay snowy white.

15. Purges The Blood
We consume a lot of junk food or food with a lot of preservatives and artificial flavours. This builds up a lot of toxins in the blood and body but daily consumption of lemon water helps to purify the blood.

16. Make Soggy Lettuce Crisp
Don’t toss that soggy lettuce into the garbage. With the help of a little lemon juice you can toss it in a salad instead. Add the juice of half a lemon to a bowl of cold water. Then put the soggy lettuce in it and refrigerate for 1 hour. Make sure to dry the leaves completely before putting them into salads or sandwiches.

17. Oral Health
Lemon juice also stops bleeding gums and reduces toothaches

18. Lighten Age Spots
Why buy expensive creams when you’ve got lemon juice? To lighten liver spots or freckles, try applying lemon juice directly to the area. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse your skin clean. It’s a safe and effective skin-lightening agent.

19. Create Blonde Highlights
For salon-worthy highlights, add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 3/4 cup water and rinse your hair with the mixture. Then, sit in the sun until your hair dries. To maximize the effect, repeat once daily for up to a week.

20. Make a Room Scent/Humidifier
Freshen and moisturize the air in your home on dry winter days. Make your own room scent that also doubles as a humidifier. If you have a wood-burning stove, place an enameled cast-iron pot or bowl on top, fill with water, and add lemon (and/or orange) peels, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and apple skins. No wood-burning stove? Use your stovetop instead and just simmer the water periodically.

21. Clean and Whiten Nails
Pamper your hands without a manicurist. Add the juice of 1/2 lemon to 1 cup warm water and soak your fingertips in the mixture for 5 minutes. After pushing back the cuticles, rub some lemon peel back and forth against the nail.

22. Cleanse Your Face
Zap zits naturally by dabbing lemon juice on blackheads to draw them out during the day. You can also wash your face with lemon juice for a natural cleanse and exfoliation. Your skin should improve after several days of treatment. Lemon water is also a cooling agent, best way to beat the heat.

23. Freshen Your Breath
Make an impromptu mouthwash by rinsing with lemon juice straight from the bottle. Swallow for longer-lasting fresh breath. The citric acid in the juice alters the pH level in your mouth, killing bacteria that causes bad breath. Rinse after a few minutes because long-term exposure to the acid in lemons can harm tooth enamel.

24. Treat Flaky Dandruff
If itchy, scaly dandruff has you scratching your head, relief may be no farther away than your refrigerator. Just massage two tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with water. Then stir one teaspoon lemon juice into one cup water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat daily until your dandruff disappears.

25. Get Rid of Tough Stains on MarbleYou probably think of marble as stone, but it is really petrified calcium (also known as old seashells). That explains why it is so porous and easily stained and damaged. Those stains can be hard to remove. If washing won’t remove a stubborn stain, try this: Cut a lemon in half, dip the exposed flesh into some table salt, and rub it vigorously on the stain. But do this only as a last resort; acid can damage marble. Rinse well. Use These Lemons To Clean – Easy and Effective

26. Remove Berry Stains
It sure was fun to pick your own berries, but now your fingers are stained with berry juice that won’t come off no matter how much you scrub with soap and water. Try washing your hands with undiluted lemon juice, then wait a few minutes and wash with warm, soapy water. Repeat until your hands are stain-free.

27. Soften Dry, Scaly Elbows
Itchy elbows are bad enough, but they look terrible too. For better looking (and feeling) elbows, mix baking soda and lemon juice to make an abrasive paste, then rub it into your elbows for a soothing, smoothing, and exfoliating treatment. Rinse your extremities in a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and water, then massage with olive oil and dab dry with a soft cloth.

28. Headaches
Lemon juice with a few teaspoons of hot tea added is the treatment of a sophisticated New York bartender, for those who suffer with hangover headaches–and from headaches due to many other causes. He converts his customers to this regime, and weans them away from drug remedies completely.

29. Chills and Fevers
Chills and fevers may be due to a variety of causes; never the less the lemon is always a helpful remedy. Spanish physicians regard it as an infallible friend.

30. Diptheria
Skip the vaccine for this disease. Lemon Juice Treatment still proves as one of the most powerful antiseptics and the strong digestive qualities of the fruit are admired around the world. With the juice every hour or two, and at the same time, 1/2 to 1 tsp. should be swallowed. This cuts loose the false membrane in the throat and permits it to come out.

31. Vaginal Hygiene
Diluted lemon juice makes a safe and sane method of vaginal hygiene. Though it is a powerful antiseptic it is nevertheless free from irritating drugs in douches and suppositories.

32. Forget The Moth Balls
A charming French custom to keep closets free from moths is to take ripe lemons and stick them with cloves all over the skin. The heavily studded lemons slowly dry with their cloves, leaving a marvelous odor throughout the closets and rooms.

33. Stomach Health
Digestive problems are the most common ailments but warm water and lime juice is the solution to most digestive problems. Lemon juice helps to purify the blood, reduces your chances of indigestion, constipation, eliminates toxins from the body, adds digestion and reduces phlegm.

34. Disinfect Cuts and Scrapes
Stop bleeding and disinfect minor cuts and scraps by pouring a few drops of lemon juice directly on the cut. You can also apply the juice with a cotton ball and hold firmly in place for one minute.

35. Soothe Poison Ivy Rash
You won’t need an ocean of calamine lotion the next time poison ivy comes a-creeping. Just apply lemon juice directly to the affected area to soothe itching and alleviate the rash.

36. Remove Warts
You’ve tried countless remedies to banish warts and nothing seems to work. Next time, apply a dab of lemon juice directly to the wart using a cotton swab. Repeat for several days until the acids in the lemon juice dissolve the wart completely.

37. Bleach Delicate FabricsAvoid additional bleach stains by swapping ordinary household chlorine bleach with lemon juice, which is milder but no less effective. Soak your delicates in a mixture of lemon juice and baking soda for at least half an hour before washing.

38. Clean Tarnished Brass and Polish Chrome
Say good-bye to tarnish on brass, copper, or stainless steel. Make a paste of lemon juice and salt (or substitute baking soda or cream of tartar for the salt) and coat the affected area. Let it stay on for 5 minutes. Then wash in warm water, rinse, and polish dry. Use the same mixture to clean metal kitchen sinks too. Apply the paste, scrub gently, and rinse.Get rid of mineral deposits and polish chrome faucets and other tarnished chrome. Simply rub lemon rind over the chrome and watch it shine! Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.

39. Replace Your Dry Cleaner
Ditch the expensive dry-cleaning bills (and harsh chemicals) with this homegrown trick. Simply scrub the stained area on shirts and blouses with equal parts lemon juice and water. Your “pits” will be good as new, and smell nice too.

40. Boost Laundry Detergent
For more powerful cleaning action, pour 1 cup lemon juice into the washer during the wash cycle. The natural bleaching action of the juice will zap stains and remove rust and mineral discolorations from cotton T-shirts and briefs and will leave your clothes smelling fresh. Your clothes will turn out brighter and also come out smelling lemon-fresh.

41. Rid Clothes of Mildew
Have you ever unpacked clothes you stored all winter and discovered some are stained with mildew? To get rid of it, make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it on the affected area, then dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat the process until the stain is gone.

42. Eliminate Fireplace Odor
There’s nothing cozier on a cold winter night than a warm fire burning in the fireplace — unless the fire happens to smell horrible. Next time you have a fire that sends a stench into the room, try throwing a few lemon peels into the flames. Or simply burn some lemon peels along with your firewood as a preventive measure.

43. Neutralize Cat-Box Odor
You don’t have to use an aerosol spray to neutralize foul-smelling cat-box odors or freshen the air in your bathroom. Just cut a couple of lemons in half. Then place them, cut side up, in a dish in the room, and the air will soon smell lemon-fresh.

44. Deodorize a Humidifier
When your humidifier starts to smell funky, deodorize it with ease: Just pour 3 or 4 teaspoons lemon juice into the water. It will not only remove the off odor but will replace it with a lemon-fresh fragrance. Repeat every couple of weeks to keep the odor from returning.

45. Reduce Asthma SymptomsIn addition to a general detoxifying diet, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice before each meal, and before retiring can reduce asthma symptoms.

* If you do consume lemon peel, stick to organic lemons to reduce your pesticide exposure.

Celebrate This Day Of Awakening - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Celebrate

Celebrate this day of awakening

Awaken to the joy that lies within you

Awaken to the Love that

Surrounds and fills your being

Awaken to the knowledge that you are more than human

Yet, very much humane

Seek that peace again

Seek that peace in knowing

That you can access both

The best in your humanity

While at the same time

Touch to the Divine within you

Dance through your living

Sing a song of Joy

Know that you are far stronger

Far wiser

Far more patient

Than your ego will now allow

Allow not ego to rule

Rather

Sit on the throne within your heart

Align with Heaven & Earth

And override the old programs

Repare

Reboot

And begin again as Man

Man in balance with mind and emotion

Man in balance with Heaven & Earth

Man balanced in Self

Man balanced in man

Calm in knowing

Calm in being

Calm within yourSelf

Seek no more the whims of ego

Seek now the joy in living within Self

Self connected to self

self balanced within oneSelf

Now

So will it be

FDA Punishes Daniel Smith of Project Greenlife for Selling A Product (MMS) That Actually Works

Daniel Smith—who operated Project Green Life until the FDA came-a-calling in 2010 with guns—and his wife Karis have been arrested and taken into custody by U.S. Marshalls. They were charged with one count of conspiracy, four counts of interstate sales of mis-branded drugs, and one count of smuggling.

FDA Attacks Daniel Smith of Project Greenlife and MMS

MMS Newsletter,  21 February 2013


The FDA asks the justice department to send both Daniel Smith ( Project Greenlife ) and his wife to prison for 36 years for selling MMS, and his secretary as well. This is in the face of the fact that Daniel sent a certified letter to the FDA (which they signed for) asking if they in any way objected to him selling MMS in his private association. He legally stated that in the absence of their objection that he would be doing so as there is no law against selling MMS, sodium chlorite, or chlorine dioxide. There are court cases indicating that to not answer such letters can be considered fraud by the governmental agency receiving such letters.

Daniel put his life and that of his family on the line by returning to the US to answer the Grand Jury’s inquiry into this case. He was safe inside of Ecuador but he chose to return not only to help the world have the right to MMS, but also to help the citizens of the US to have health freedom. He was safe in Ecuador. There is no law saying he had to return and Ecuador offers asylum to those who are persecuted health advocates.
 
When I asked Daniel why did he return his answers was, “If those in the ring don’t fight, who will fight?” Of course, he is mad at those guys, and he wants to fix them, but, really, he did this for all of us. Now he needs your help right away at no cost of you (except the cost of sending a letter). HE JUST NEEDS YOU TO SEND A COUPLE OF LETTERS, THAT’S ALL. The letters are already written, all you have to do is sign them and send them out.
 

This is the link:    iamnotananimal.org

If you pan down you will see where you can click on Simple Instructions. But don’t click on it yet. First determine which of the letters you should send, either a user of MMS, a practitioner, or a non user. You can print a MS Word copy or a pdf copy. 
 
After printing, then go back and click on Simple Instructions. That will then give you the addresses and everything you need to get it all done in 10 or 15 minutes.
 
(Oh, yes, I just wanted to mention that here is a reference to one FDA regulation authorizing the use of chlorine dioxide on foods as high as 50 times stronger than a standard dose of MMS. Some people mentioned that they would like to see it. This is it: 21 C.F.R. § 173.300 Chlorine dioxide. Title 21 - Food and Drugs.) But please follow the instructions in the above paragraph.

Note:  I actually bought product from this company.   They were very professional and a pleasure to do business with.  They sold a number of good health products besides MMS.

'Bioethicist': Parents Should Be Held Liabel For The Deaths 'Caused' by Unvaccinated Children by Alan Phillips, J.D.

'Bioethicist': Parents Should Be Held Liabel For The Deaths 'Caused' by Unvaccinated Children

by Alan Phillips, J.D.

Green Med Info,  24 June 2013


Bioethicist Art Caplan, Ph.D. of New York University has argued that parents of unvaccinated children should be held liable for illness or death allegedly caused by their unvaccinated children.[1] This article rebuts Caplan's position, and explains why liability should fall, if with anyone on this issue, on him, for the deliberate or negligent use of his academic status and authority, supported by false information, to promote a flawed vaccine policy resulting in avoidable vaccine injury and death.

Dr. Caplan's primary premises, for purposes of the parental liability question, are essentially that: 1) Unvaccinated children put others at risk, 2) Unvaccinated children, as such, cause actual harm to others, and 3) Non-vaccinating parents know these first two premises, and should, therefore, be held liable for the harm caused by their failure to get their children vaccinated.

I. The Real Ethical Issue

Dr. Caplan's concern puts the cart before the horse. He has missed the target, a far more fundamental ethical question underlying his position, by mistakenly assuming that parents who refuse vaccines for their children are necessarily negligent for doing so. But the matter is not nearly so simple. Given the medically and legally established fact that vaccines cause permanent disability and death,[2] no parent can be reasonably categorized as "negligent" for choosing not to vaccinate their child. The real ethical question, then, is not whether or not parents should be held liable for their choice not to vaccinate, but instead, whether or not parents should be required to place their children at risk of vaccine injury or death in the first place. This seriousness of this question is underscored by the fact that the risk for any individual child is indeterminable, and the presumed benefit to the vaccinated child or others is only hypothetical--by definition, because vaccines are a treatment given to a healthy person to protect against a future hypothetical exposure to disease; and additionally because exposure to a disease doesn't necessarily mean that the exposed child will become ill or spread a disease. Put more generally, the more pertinent ethical question here is:

Who, if anyone, should risk their life for the sake of a hypothetical future benefit to others; and when and for whom, if ever, should doing so be mandatory?

Assuming that vaccines work (a flawed assumption, since 90-95% of infectious disease decline preceded vaccines, some vaccines temporarily reversed preexisting declines, and outbreaks routinely occur in highly vaccinated populations[3]), this more fundamental ethical question concerning vaccine injury and death is, at best with regard to Dr. C's parent liability issue, one on which reasonable people could disagree. On that basis alone, Dr. Caplan's parent liability issue crumbles to dust. But we've only scratched the surface. Since 90% or more of vaccine adverse events are never even reported, according to the CDC, FDA and AAPS--more than 99% according to former FDA Commissioner David Kessler[4], we have no idea what the true scope of vaccine injury and death really is. Clearly, then, there's no objective basis for mandating vaccines at all (let alone holding anyone liable for not vaccinating), because no one can tell you if they provide a net benefit to society, let alone if they are safe for *your* child in particular. So again, for this reason, we don't even reach Dr. Caplan's parental liability concern.

Add to this the documented corruption in the pharmaceutical industry and government health agencies, and Dr. Caplan's issue just fades further into oblivion. For example, in 2011, the non-profit corporation Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs obtained information through the Freedom of Information Act revealing that the CDC deliberately withheld data showing that autism rates in Danish children dropped when mercury was removed from vaccines, and then fraudulently promoted a study falsely claiming that vaccines do not cause autism.[5] Also in 2011, Dr. Poul Thorsen, a researcher hired by the CDC to organize studies refuting the vaccine-autism connection, was indicted on 13 counts of fraud with the CDC and 9 counts of money-laundering, bringing into question all of his work with the CDC (and Dr. Thorson was one of the authors on the fraudulent vaccine-autism study). In 2008, Dr. Marcia Angell of Harvard Medical School, after serving as editor of the New England Journal of Medicine for two decades, announced: "It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines."[6] Finally, In 2012 and 2009, Glaxo and Pfiser got $billion *criminal* fines respectively; criminal and civil fines in the $100's of millions are common in the pharmaceutical industry. So, the vaccine controversy cannot be reduced to the simplistic parental liability issue Dr. Caplan asserts. Life and quality of life should never be bargained away via this utilitarian formula: "Risk your life now so that someone else *may* benefit in the future," but that's exactly what we are doing with vaccine mandates--and to innocent newborns and other children. In the real world, where fake facts are invented and real facts suppressed to serve private and political agendas, and where this is documented in both industry and government, our governments should never be permitted to impose a life-threatening therapy on anyone. (I do not mean to suggest that everyone in industry and government is corrupt; quite the contrary, I believe very few people are, they just happen to be concentrated in key decision-making positions of industry and government.)

Look - there's no 100% safe option. Life is, by definition, unpredictable. Both vaccines and infectious diseases can injure and kill. But in the absence of adequate data to enable a credible comparison, Dr. Caplan lacks a legitimate basis for raising the question about parental liability altogether. But even if vaccines were proven to provide a net benefit, the ethical question about whether or not any given parent should be required to risk sacrificing their child for the benefit of the community remains valid. Many of us would, given the opportunity and complete information, would opt to take reasonable steps to protect others, and those steps could include vaccinating. That's fine, if it's an informed choice. But just as clearly, others would refuse. Both are ethically defensible positions.

The only civilized response to the broader vaccination question, given the reality of vaccine injury and death, and the absence of data on that as well, is to allow all parents to make informed choices based on what they believe is best for their child. If government is to be involved at all outside of emergencies, it should conduct independent research to bring further clarity to the issue. For example, a current bill pending before Congress now would require a study comparing autism rates in vaccinated and non-vaccinated populations.[7] The only reason such research hasn't occurred to date is, of course, is the risk it poses to the $ billions in pharmaceutical profits from vaccines (predicted to increase by 12% annually for the next several years [8]), and the further and additional erosion of pharmaceutical profits that would come from the precipitous drop in childhood chronic diseases as vaccination rates plummeted once the findings in such studies were publicly released. But even if such data ultimately favored vaccines, it would still not justify mandating that every child risk his or her life for a presumed benefit to others, especially when the individual risk is indeterminable and the benefits hypothetical. Finally, Dr. Caplan's suggestion of parental liability looks absurd when you consider the documented alternatives to immunization that are more effective, a fraction of the cost of vaccines, and that don't pose a risk of disability or death. [9] Why should anyone ever be penalized for doing something that is better than vaccines, in place of vaccines? The answer is that the alternatives are not profitable for the pharmaceutical industry, and therefore, awareness of them is actively suppressed; and that currently, these are not legal alternatives to mandatory vaccines.

Secure In Self, Secure In Love - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Secure In Self, Secure In Love

Prepare for the years ahead

Prepare for many changes to come

Both joyous and disasterous

Balance the effects of the two

Be not afraid of what is to come to humanity

Your humanity as well as the humanity of all others

For all are connected

All are loved

Some hide

Some shout out their being

Some just ride the current effortlessly until they arrive at there destination

Come to your human senses and you will no longer be closed to the Divine

Reason and love together

A good reason for being human

Reason gives you the tools of survival

And Love gives you the strength necessary to maintain reason

Some go mad

Some be glad

Focus on your strengths  and your innate abilities

And trust in the Will of Heaven

Trust in the Will of Earth

Combine and balance the Two

And reap the harvest

Let not ego dissuade you or control your will

Rather,  will that you renew and intensify your conncetions to both Heaven & Earth

Intend this and wait upon the Wills of Both

Heaven & Earth will support you and yours

Gather together with those of like mind and intention

And reap the harvest

Reap a harvest of Joy

Reap a harvest of Faith restored

Reap a harvest of Love

That will nurtures and strengthens

Your wills

Your minds

Your emotions

Fret not

And bathe in the joy of knowing

That all will return again to their rightful Home

All will return again

All to a heartfelt Love

Free again

To be Man

To be Woman

Secure in Self

Secure in Love

Kitchari: Discover An Ancient Ayurvedic Meal Used For Healing by Paul Fassa


Kitchari: Discover an Ancient Ayurvedic Meal Used for Healing

by Paul Fassa

Natural Society,  24 June 2013


It’s called kitchari (kich-a-ree), and it’s a recipe still used by India’s centuries-old Ayurveda medicine for creating what we in the west could call homeostasis. But it’s different.
Ayurveda medicine is based on a principle of compositional elements called doshas. We are all composed of three doshas, Vada (air and ether), Pitta (fire or heat), and Kapha (earth and water). Usually one or two are predominant, but all three doshas are in everyone.

An Ayurveda practitioner is able to determine your predominant dosha or doshas in their proper order from physical examination and written questionnaire. The doshas manifest both physiologically and psychologically. When they’re out of balance, our health suffers and we don’t act the way we should.

Ayurveda offers treatments, herbs, and dietary guidance to properly align your doshas. There is one DIY (do-it-yourself) dish you can prepare for a few days at a time to balance your doshas when you’re “out of sorts”. It’s called kitchari.

In Ayurveda, good digestion is the root of good health. A kitchari-only fast for a few days provides a mono-diet to align your digestive enzymes without confusing your enzyme production for awhile.

The herbs help ignite what Ayurveda calls the digestive fire.
An easy to make and eat kitchari fast balances your doshas. One batch will last for a few meals. And you can spice it up with a healthy chutney of your choice on the side. Here’s one chutney recipe that uses mercury-detoxing cilantro.

A Basic Kitchari Recipe

Try to use white Indian basmati rice, which is usually parboiled. Parboiling is a method of extracting white rice while sealing in most of the nutrients of whole grain rice with the benefit of easier digestion.

Indian food markets sell it in large bags. But if you can’t get to an Indian store, buy bulk organic white basmati rice from a health food store, then buy some organic bulk mung beans to help purify the blood.

Ingredients

Here are ingredients you can use to prepare kitchari.
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • ½ cup organic whole or split mung beans (bulk section of the health food store). These need to be soaked for at least three hours before cooking.
  • 4-6 cups of water non-fluoridated water from a reverse osmosis charcoal filtered water purification system. Those coin operated machines are in most health food stores and supermarkets.
  • 2 Tbs ghee (clarified butter). An organic brand will be available at the health food store, or you can make your own. By the way – real ghee doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
  • 1 teaspoon of black mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 pinches hing (asafetida)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 stick of kombu (seaweed). Also available at the health food store. You can substitute wakame if need be. You just need a little—one “leaf” per pot of soup.
  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 – 2 cups chopped vegetables (optional)

Preparation

Wash rice and mung, and soak for three hours or overnight. Drain the water. In a saucepan warm the ghee. Add the ginger, mustard seeds and cumin seeds and sauté for one to two minutes until the mustard seeds start to pop and the aroma of the herbs is released. Add rice and mung beans and sauté mixing for another couple of minutes.

Former GMO Engineer Drops Biotech and Goes Organic

by Ken Roseboro

Organic Connections Magazine,  June 2013

The “con­ver­sion” of for­mer anti-GMO activist Mark Lynas to GMO pro­moter has gar­nered huge media atten­tion, but Thierry Vrain, Ph.D., a for­mer genetic engi­neer who speaks out against the risks of genet­i­cally engi­neered foods, has far more credibility—and a far more impor­tant story to tell the public.

Thierry Vrain’s career has spanned the full range of agriculture—from being a pro­po­nent of “chem­i­cal” agri­cul­ture and genetic engi­neer­ing to being an advo­cate for organic farm­ing and an oppo­nent of GMOs.

A native of France, Vrain earned an under­grad­u­ate degree in plant phys­i­ol­ogy from the Université de Caen and a doc­toral degree from North Carolina State University. After mov­ing to Canada he taught plant phys­i­ol­ogy at Université du Québec in Montréal. Then he worked for 30 years as a research sci­en­tist for the Canadian gov­ern­ment in Québec and British Columbia where he con­ducted research on genet­i­cally mod­i­fied pota­toes, among other projects. He was direc­tor of the biotech­nol­ogy depart­ment at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Summerland, BC.

After 35 years of research and teach­ing of soil and mol­e­c­u­lar biol­ogy, Vrain retired to a small farm in Courtenay, BC called Innisfree. Today, Thierry Vrain is a gar­dener, a teacher, and a pas­sion­ate speaker about organic gardening—from soil health to GMOs.

6 Natural Pain Reducing Remedies by Christina Sarich


6 Natural Pain Reducing Remedies

by Christina Sarich

Natural Society,  19 June 2013


Instead of popping an aspirin, or taking one of the many pain medications on the market today, you can target pain with natural remedies that cause absolutely no side effects and induce no negative impact on the body. Frequent use of aspirin can cause everything from intestinal bleeding to kidney failure while Ibuprofin can cause gastrointestinal discomfort and heart problems.
So take advantage of these 6 natural pain-reducing remedies.

1. Find Some Good Company - Whenever we bond and communicate with others about how we are feeling, we tend to feel better. People who deal with chronic pain feel better when participating in group therapy, such as simple discussion groups, where others recognize their pain.

2. Laugh It Off - One of the best ways to rewire the pain synapses in the brain is to over-run them with hilarity. A recent British study has proven that when we laugh, opiate-like chemicals are released into the brain, which block the feeling of pain.

3. Eat Some Chile Peppers or Jalapenos - An active component of chili peppers, capsaicin temporarily desensitizes pain-prone skin nerve receptors called C-fibers. This is great news for people who endure chronic since capsaicin can be applied topically as well.

4. Meditate - In a recent study, 80 minutes of meditation was proven to reduce pain better than one of the most powerful pharmaceutical drugs on the market – morphine! Meditation instead of morphine, it works.

5. Juice Some Ginger - Another study shows that ginger is better at reducing pain than Advil or Motrin, and it does so without hurting our cytokines – natural immunity building blocks of the body. This can be especially good news for arthritis sufferers.

6. Spice it up with Turmeric - Turmeric is anti-inflammatory spice, which means it can help reduce the pain response in the body. Aside from that, it is treating cancer and preventing Alzheimer’s disease. If you have joint pain, just 1000 milligrams of Turmeric a day can help it go away.

Now You Are Man - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Your Heart
 

Now You Are Man

Success is relative

Failure is a prelude to success

Success is a culmination of trail and error over countless centuries of what you call time

Detach from these notions of success and failure

Be at peace and be in love with all aspects of your living

See clearly and know that all is a part of a Divine plan

And all play their part to bring about a balance to the Whole

Dark and light

Good and evil

Male and female

All compliment each other and cancel each other out to bring a balance to the total continuum

Feel the Earth under your feet

Feel the Heavens as They silently caress and nurture your being

Connect to Both

Reconnect to your Self

Allow flows from Both

And balance the whole

Release the sadness

Release the disappointments

Release the images of failure

Succeed within yourself

And bring balance not only to your being, but to all you meet on your journeys path

Walk the Pilgrims path

And delight in the rain as well as the bright sunlight

Enjoy the harsh winds

As well as the gentle breezes

All contribute to the Whole

All are necessary for a sound and healthy system

Embrace change calmly

Be at peace

And wait upon the joy

Which arrives at unexpected moments

Know that you are capable of great acts of love

And can love and be loved

Forgive yourself as you would forgive others

Shed tears to cleanse your sorrow

Open a flow to Heaven and to Earth

Reap the benefits of Both

Be God in man

As well as man in God

Then you will be reborn as Man

Co-worker and Co-operator with Heaven and Earth

Balanced in the Love of Both

Balanced and calm within yourself

Centered within your heart

Open to All

As one is open to ones' Self

Firm in the knowing

That  

Now you are Man


M.N. Hopkins

Chipotle First US Chain Restaurant to Label GMOs by Anthony Gucciardi

Chipotle First US Chain Restaurant to Label GMOs

by Anthony Gucciardi

Natural Society,  18 Jiune 2013


In a display of effective consumer activism, Chipotle Mexican Grill has become the first US restaurant chain to go ahead and label all GMOs sold through their locations on the menu. And unlike Whole Foods and other grocers, who are making similar strides but are actually years away from actual implementation, Chipotle has already launched the labeling initiative into existence.

In case you’ve never heard of Chipotle, it is a ‘natural’ Mexican food restaurant that you could say is essentially a fast food hybrid. The chain actually had a major investment from McDonald’s back in 1998, but the fast food titan ultimately divested from Chipotle in 2006. Subsequently, that’s when Chipotle really started to explode with over 500 locations — now hitting 1,400 chain locations with an income of $278 million. In other words, we’re talking about a major fast food chain that is highlighting the issue of GMOs in a way that’s really important.

Read: Target to Remove GMOs from Major Food Brand

Chipotle has always marketed itself as a ‘natural’ restaurant within the fast food dynasty of restaurant chains, but it still is serving up very unnatural GMOs and dangerous ingredients. That said, thanks to aggressive consumer activism, Chipotle has officially announced that it will not only be labeling GMOs on the ingredients list of food products, but phasing out all GMOs on the menu. The chain has already made some steps in removing additives in dairy and other items, but the new announcement signals a major recognition of the growing movement against Monsanto and GMOs at large.

From the Chipotle website:

“Our goal is to eliminate GMOs from Chipotle’s ingredients, and we’re working hard to meet this challenge…For example, we recently switched our fryers from soybean oil to sunflower oil. Soybean oil is almost always made from genetically modified soybeans, while there is no commercially available GMO sunflower oil. Where our food contains currently unavoidable GM ingredients, it is only in the form of corn or soy.”

Overall the announcement is one of the many results we are seeing through spreading the word about Monsanto and GMOs, partaking in key activism movements, and deciding to purchase GMO-free organic foods. The latest of which is the Monsanto Video Revolt, which I recently announced as an initiative I am launching along with major natural health websites and organizations like Mike Adams of NaturalNews and Dr Edward Group of Global Healing Center.

A Presentation by Kerri Rivera.- 38 Autistic Children Recovered in 20 months with MMS





This presentation will outline the approach Kerri has used successfully to help recover 38 children from a diagnosis of Autism. She will explain how MMS (chlorine dioxide) has become the “missing piece” to the autism puzzle for so many of the families that she works with. MMS is available worldwide, and is extremely cost effective, bringing recovery in reach of all families, despite economic or geographic limitations. This presentation seeks to prove that Autism truly is curable.

Return To The Now - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins




Prepare.

Yes, prepare for the days ahead. Days of trials in fire and renewal of the Earth by waters rising.

Hard days, some might say, difficult days. All we will say is necessary days if Mankind is to continue on the path of evolution or evolvement into half human, half God.

Mans' destiny from the beginning of time.

Now, soon to be fulfilled in human time.

Man has chosen this although the ego will say not.

Man was once the ruler of ego and lived amongst all creatures both seen and unseen.

Then a separation occurred and Man forgot what he truly was and why he had come into this existence known as being human.

Now, the time of remembrance draws near.

Man will once again recall what he really is and why he has chosen to incarnate into human form.

Balance will return again to Man. A balance you call between Heaven and Earth. A balance we just call, "our natural state of being".

A madness has overtaken the human form but as with all illness, health returns when left to its' own natural course.

Illness can be seen as nothing more than a non-alignment with Nature and the Soul or what can also be called the Self.

Some call it a higher Self, some call it ones' higher nature, some call it the best part of ones' humanity, we just call it oneself.

If seen from our point of view, a Self at play creating a life story. If seen from yours, a being struggling to survive in a harsh world.

It is all a matter of perspective. You look forward, we look back and where we meet is the eternal Now of Creation.

From the Now, past and future co-exist together with no division or separation.

The Now is the great revealer and equalizer.

The Now is both the seeds of possibility as well as the fruits of your labors here on Earth.

The Now is the quickest, safest and shortest route to ones' Glory.

Being in the Now opens countless doors of opportunity as well as countless possibilities of being and doing.

Christ lived in the Now and brought forth great possibility as well as opportunity for Mankind to develop and evolve into something greater than yourselves.

Christ lived in the Now and great healings occurred.

Healing is born in the Now.

A healthy past can be returned to and at the same time, a healthy future can be entered into.

Love returns in the Now.

Life returns in the Now.

All that one is and has been and ever will be return and meet in the Now and this is why being in the Now brings about miracles of healing or miracles of change within the human organism.

Your psychologies are based upon dwelling on or digging into the past. This is why it is an ineffective system that often does more harm than good.

Not that the practitioners are not well intended, but when did good intentions alone without real knowledge and skills ever bring about great internal changes in the human psyche.

If they rather brought their patients to the Now, than miracles would occur and a true healing of both body and mind would occur.

It's the same with medical science. Rather than treat a person by looking at what is occurring now in a body, the practitioners look at past histories and family genetics which is not the place to look if healing is to occur.

This will change in time. Man will again remember knowledge that was long forgotten and still residing in the Now. Mankind will also remember knowledge developed far into what you call the future and bring this back to the Now.

So, now perhaps you understand if not consciously, than unconsciously, the power of the Now.

If Mankind began to access knowledge from the Now, then great progress would be made in all the sciences. Man would and will discover or uncover knowledge that is always available since past and future occur simultaneously within the Now of Creation.

So, now do you understand the power of the Now?

Now, for a moment we live in the Now.

Now!
