NaturalNews) As Natural News readers and fans already know, we’re hot on the trail pinpointing sources of heavy metals and understanding how they impair our physical and mental health. Now a groundbreaking study conducted in the United States on arsenic in drinking water has found something truly astounding: a mere 5 parts per billion (.005 ppm) of arsenic caused “reductions in Full Scale, Working Memory, Perceptual Reasoning and Verbal Comprehension scores” in children.(1)
The research was led by Joseph Graziano, PhD, professor of Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. It involved 272 children from three school districts in Maine.
Graziano summarized the findings by explaining “aspects of performance intelligence, particularly perceptual reasoning and working memory, are impacted by exposure to arsenic in drinking water.”
He goes on to say, “we also observed a steep drop in intelligence scores in the very low range of water arsenic concentrations.”
Click here to see the summary of the study.
This study, by the way, also completely demolishes the myth that small quantities of heavy metals can’t possibly be harmful “because they are so small.” In this study, we’re talking about a concentration of just 5 parts per billion in drinking water — an amount so tiny that it’s only 1/100th the level of lead we’ve found in some protein products. If just 5 parts per billion can impair learning, reasoning and brain function, then obviously 500 parts per billion (.5 ppm) is even worse.
We’ve already documented, by the way, 500 parts per billion of total arsenic in some rice protein products as shown here. We’ve also found 2883 ppb (2.883 ppm) of total arsenic in barley grass powder.

Lead and mercury also damage brain function

We already know that the heavy metals lead and mercury cause significant, measurable damage to brain function. Mercury in fish, for example, causes lowered IQs, learning disabilities and impaired cognitive function (2).
Lead also impairs the learning of children and impairs healthy brain function. In the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, I’ve conducted pioneering research on the lead found in certified organic rice protein supplements, and we’ve recently found very high levels of toxic mercury in pet treats.
The levels we’re documenting are in many cases hundreds of times larger than the 5 ppb of arsenic covered in this study. I had no idea arsenic could affect brain function at just 5 ppb (.005 ppm) in drinking water.
The EPA currently limits arsenic levels in public drinking water to 10 ppb. This limit is based on “total arsenic” including both organic arsenic and inorganic arsenic. Where does all this arsenic come from? According to the EPA (3):
Approximately 90 percent of industrial arsenic in the U.S. is currently used as a wood preservative, but arsenic is also used in paints, dyes, metals, drugs, soaps and semi-conductors. High arsenic levels can also come from certain fertilizers and animal feeding operations. Industry practices such as copper smelting, mining and coal burning also contribute to arsenic in our environment.

FDA has no limit on arsenic in foods

Even though the EPA has a limit of 10 ppb of arsenic in drinking water, the FDA has no limit on arsenic in foods, superfoods or supplements. To many Americans, this is bewildering: Why would the FDA have no limit on toxic heavy metals in the U.S. food supply?
I have personally tested many seaweeds that contain over 50 ppm of arsenic — that’s over 10,000 times the EPA’s arsenic limit in drinking water. For example, as you can see on this lab results page, one brand of Kombu Flakes has over 100 ppm total arsenic! (Wakame from New Zealand contained almost zero arsenic, by the way…)
Of course, nobody is eating seaweed at the same quantities they are drinking water, and much of the arsenic in seaweed is probably organic arsenic (which isn’t harmful like inorganic arsenic). Even then, the fact that popular seaweeds may contain 10,000 times the level of total arsenic necessary to significantly decrease cognitive function in children is quite alarming. Clearly this area needs more research to answer questions like:
• What is the impact of arsenic in adult brain function? Does too much arsenic lower your IQ?
• How much total arsenic were these children actually drinking over a month or a year?
• What is the source of the arsenic in the well water? Is this arsenic coming from ancient rock, or is this an industrial contaminant that’s leaking into water aquifers?
• What is the combined effect of being exposed to low levels of arsenic, mercury and lead all at the same time?
• If only 5 ppb of arsenic caused these significant cognitive problems, then is there ANY safe level of arsenic to consume?
• Why won’t the USDA limit the level of arsenic found in certified organic foods?

Health Ranger to test arsenic removal capabilities of popular water filters

On a positive note, I am currently in the process of testing the arsenic removal capabilities of popular gravity water filters such as the Big Berkey and ProPur. This work is being conducted in the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, and it will also test the ability of popular water filters to remove lead, cadmium, mercury and aluminum.
Although I reserve final conclusions until I see the actual data, I am approaching this project with a sense of optimism with the belief that the water filtration media typically used in today’s gravity filters will likely be very effective at removing arsenic. Mercury is also exceedingly easy to remove through common filter media (such as carbon block filters), so I’m optimistic mercury removal will be very close to 100%.
Stay tuned to Natural News for these results. I’ll be announcing the full results of this study to my email list, so subscribe below to receive these results immediately after they are published.
The bottom line in all this? Heavy metals are toxic to brain function, and even extremely low levels of arsenic — trace levels — are now documented to cause cognitive impairment in U.S. children.
This should make us all even more concerned about the toxic heavy metals appearing in foods, superfoods, supplements and other products grown in China, India and other nations where environmental regulations are all but ignored.

Note to scientists and researchers

I run a private ICP-MS laboratory in Texas and we are willing to offer published environmental researchers free ICP-MS laboratory testing of samples using EPA methodologies such as 200.8. We are willing to test water, food and other environmental samples but not biologicals such as blood or urine. Our lab is in the process of ISO 17025 accreditation and our results have been validated by university labs and other private labs.
We can validate your in-house results, and we can also serve as your primary lab for environmental studies involving heavy metals. Contact Natural News if you would like to collaborate on future research. (My own research normally focuses on heavy metals contamination of foods, superfoods, dietary supplements and herbal medicine.)

the-vaccine-that-almost-always-fails

By:

Shingles is caused by a reactivation of dormant varicella zoster (chicken pox) virus. It is most common in older adults and people with immune systems weakened by stress, injury, medications or other reasons.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends the shingles vaccine “to reduce the risk of shingles and its associated pain in people 60 years old or older.” According to David Brownstein, M.D., the question of whether to have the shingles vaccine is one of the most asked by his patients.

Faulty Recommendation

Since the vaccine is recommended by the CDC, there should be some evidence that it is effective. Brownstein’s analysis of the evidence provided in a research paper titled “Prevention of Herpes Zoster in Older Adults” indicates it’s not nearly as effective as the CDC would have you believe.

Under the section heading Practice Pointers, Brownstein found these gems:

“[T]he author states that, over a median surveillance period of 3.12 years, with over 52,000 participants, there was a 51% relative risk reduction in confirmed cases of herpes zoster in those that received the vaccine. Furthermore, the author stated that among those aged 60-69, the number needed to treat to prevent one case of shingles was 50. Among those 70 years and older, the number needed to treat was 100.

“These numbers show that, in those aged 60-69, the shingles vaccine was ineffective for 98% (forty-nine out of fifty) of those studied. For those aged 70 and older, the vaccine was 99% ineffective, since 99 out of 100 received no benefit.”

So according to the data, the shingles vaccine was a 98 percent to 99 percent failure. Also, the number needed to harm from the vaccine was 2.8. That means that for every 2.8 vaccines administered, one patient was harmed. And for every 100 vaccinated, one patient suffered a severe adverse reaction like a rash, fever or hospitalization.

Brownstein then presented this evidence in the form of a letter to the editor of the American Family Physician Journal. The letter was rejected without explanation.

Worthless Medicine

So should you have the shingles vaccine? The evidence indicates the answer is “no.” It further indicates the medical establishment doesn’t want you to know this.

The best product that we have found to ease the pain and blistering is L-Lysine, an essential amino acid, found at any pharmacy or health food store. It is available as an oral supplement and as a topical ointment. It is also excellent for the relief of cold sores, which are caused by the herpes simplex virus.

Flue Shot Hype 1

By: The Refusers

MB Comment: This new comprehensive review of flu vaccine effectiveness shows the flu shot and nasal mist are almost useless.

‘71 people would need vaccination to prevent one case of influenza (95% CI 64 to 80). Vaccination shows no appreciable effect on working days lost or hospitalization.’

The flu shot doesn’t work. It’s a clear case of vaccine failure.

SheepleFleecingAll the sheeple who line up for flu shots at drug stores and doctor’s offices are getting fleeced.

Anyone who tells you the flu vaccine is effective is misinformed or lying.

It’s simply a money-making scam for Big Pharma perpetrated by vaccine zealots at the CDC.

Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults

Demicheli V, Jefferson T, Al-Ansary LA, Ferroni E, Rivetti A, Di Pietrantonj C.

ABSTRACT

We evaluated the effect of immunisation with influenza vaccines on preventing influenza A or B infections (efficacy), influenza-like illness (ILI) and its consequences (effectiveness), and determined whether exposure to influenza vaccines is associated with serious or severe harms. The target populations were healthy adults, including pregnant women and newborns.

Background:

Over 200 viruses cause influenza and ILI, producing the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches, pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot distinguish between them as both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines may only be effective against influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses. Annually, the World Health Organization estimates which viral strains should be included in the next season’s vaccinations.

Inactivated vaccine is prepared by treating influenza viruses with a specific chemical agent that “kills” the virus. Final preparations can contain either the complete viruses (whole vaccine) or the active part of them (split or subunit vaccines). These kind of vaccines are normally intramuscularly administered (parenteral route).

Live attenuated vaccine is prepared by growing the influenza viruses through a series of cell cultures or animal embryos. With each passage, the viruses lose their ability to replicate in human cells but can still stimulate the immune system. Live attenuated vaccine are administered as aerosol in the nostrils (intranasal route).

The virus strains contained in the vaccine are usually those that are expected to circulate in the following epidemic seasons (two type A and one B strains), accordingly to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (seasonal vaccine).

Pandemic vaccine contains only the virus strain that is responsible of the pandemic (i.e. the type A H1N1 for the 2009/2010 pandemic).

Study characteristics:

The evidence is current to May 2013. In this update, 90 reports of 116 studies compared the effect of influenza vaccine with placebo or no intervention. Sixty-nine reports were clinical trials (over 70,000 people), 27 were comparative cohort studies (about eight million people) and 20 were case-control studies (nearly 25,000 people). Of the 116 studies, 23 (three case-control and 20 cohort studies) were performed during pregnancy (about 1.6 million mother-child couples

Key results:

The preventive effect of parenteral inactivated influenza vaccine on healthy adults is small: at least 40 people would need vaccination to avoid one ILI case (95% confidence interval (CI) 26 to 128) and 71 people would need vaccination to prevent one case of influenza (95% CI 64 to 80). Vaccination shows no appreciable effect on working days lost or hospitalisation.

The protection against ILI that is given by the administration of inactivated influenza vaccine to pregnant women is uncertain or at least very limited; the effect on their newborns is not statistically significant.

The effectiveness of live aerosol vaccines on healthy adults is similar to inactivated vaccines: 46 people (95% CI 29 to 115) would need immunisation to avoid one ILI case.

BernardDalbergueGardasil

Former Merck doctor predicts that Gardasil will be the biggest scandal in medical history.

The former Merck doctor, French Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, was interviewed for the magazine Principe de Santé (Health Principles) in April this year, and in that interview he talks about his experiences in the pharmaceutical industry. After some tough years as a doctor in a hospital, Dr. Bernard Dalbergue quickly became seduced by the convenience of work in the pharmaceutical industry. Less yelling, pain and death. The latest fashion, fancy cars, money and embezzlement became part of his new life instead. Right up until his conscience, after 20 years in the pharmaceutical laboratories, woke him up and he wrote all his experiences in a book.

Le Gardasil sera le plus grand scandale de tous les temps

In the interview Dr. Bernard Dalbergue talks about his surprise at how Marcia Angell, former head of the respected New England Journal of Medicine, left her job because she believed that the pharmaceutical industry manipulated the clinical research and controlled all the information that got to public attention. She, like many others, claimed that scientific studies that on the surface was described as objective and independent, was actually written by the pharmaceutical industry.

In the interview he also explains that each year between 18,000-30,000 die in France directly as a result of adverse reactions to pharmaceutical products and the figure for the whole of the EU is about 200,000. He explains that there are no clinical studies that will document the safety of a product, like Merck is trying to tell people in the case of Gardasil, it is only after millions of doses have been distributed that you will see how dangerous a product is. Therefore, he says without hesitation: “Gardasil will be the biggest scandal in medical history,” and he adds: “The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed. Everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless. Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all.”

Dr. Bernard Dalbergue mentions another example of how the pharmaceutical industry has deceived the public; Mercks anti-inflammatory product, Vioxx, proved to have serious side effects, including cardiac arrest, and Merck used a lot of effort to conceal the more than 30,000 deaths due to side effects. Immediately thereafter, they started to develop a similar new product, called Arcoxia, where they just changed a few molecules, and while people still died from Vioxx, which at the time had been revoked, doctors began to prescribe the new and equally dangerous product. “Arcoxia is now being prescribed and approved, but it is extremely dangerous. It’s the same with Gardasil; it is useless and costs a fortune. In addition, decision makers at all levels are aware of it.” He recognizes that all vaccines have side effects, that all vaccines can cause guillain-barre syndrome, paralysis, mutiple sclerosis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, but when it comes to saving millions from smallpox and polio then it is a different matter: “I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.” On the question of why Gardasil is not just withdrawn from the market, the answer is short: “There is far too much financial interest for these medicines to be withdrawn.”

Towards the end of the interview, Dr. Bernard Dalbergue draws a parallel between the pharmaceutical industry and the system we have built, to the political system in China: “In China, opponents are executed with a single shot of a bullet to the neck and executions are broadcast on television. Worse still, the victim’s families are made to pay for the bullet used. In my opinion, these 18,000 to 30,000 deaths by medicines are exactly the same – the patients are made to pay for the bullet which kills them.”

The story about Dr. Bernard Dalbergue has also been published in Le Monde and the article can be read via the link below.

Story[1]

By: Jon Rappoport

Seven years ago, Marcia Angell, who, for two decades, edited one of the most famous medical journals in the world, the New England Journal of Medicine, wrote a piece for the Boston Globe.

It was titled, Talking Back to the FDA (February 26, 2007).

In his book, Medication Madness, Dr. Peter Breggin quotes Angell’s article:

“The FDA also refuses to release unfavorable research results in its possession without the sponsoring company’s permission…It’s no wonder that serious safety concerns about drugs such as Vioxx, Paxil, and Zyprexa have emerged very late in the day—years after they were in widespread use.”

Serious safety concerns? Heart attacks, strokes, suicide and homicide, etc.

What’s this ongoing bureaucratic insanity Marcia Angell is referring to?

The drug companies do the human studies on new drugs before they are submitted to the FDA, who then decides whether to approve the drugs for public consumption.

The FDA examines these studies. But here is the catch. A drug company might submit four studies on a new drug to the FDA. The FDA might choose to render a favorable decision based on two studies.

Now, somebody like Angell, while she was editing the New England Journal, would approach the FDA and say, “We want to see all the study-data you have on this new drug. Not just the most positive findings.”

And the FDA would refuse. Why? Because these studies are “property” of the drug companies, and those companies don’t want the studies to see the light of day.

Those are the human clinical trials that reveal heart attacks, strokes, and deaths are quite real results for people taking the drug.

The FDA, tasked with protecting the public, says no. “No, you can’t see the data.”

Angell’s column in the Boston Globe was a blockbuster. It should have provoked action from the Department of Justice. After all, people having strokes and dying…and the drug companies and the FDA concealing this…if that isn’t a crime, what is?

But no. Angell’s revelation goes nowhere. It’s published and it sinks like a stone.

And people think, “Well, I guess there really isn’t a problem. If it were serious, the government would have done something about it.”

Wrong. The government isn’t in the business of sending pharmaceutical executives and FDA bureaucrats to jail. A drug company might have to pay a hefty fine and promise to behave, but the profits from the killer drug are already in the bank. Pay a fine of $2 billion? Chump change, when the drug already made $20 billion in sales.

So, as Angell reveals, we have a hidden definition of pharmaceutical science: “Conceal the dangers, get the drug on the market, ignore the human destruction, and at worst pay a fine.”

The FDA hiding and burying the truth about medical drugs? This helps explain how, in the US, every year, 106,000 people die as a direct result of ingesting FDA-approved medicines.

Yes, 106,000. See “Is US health really the best in the world?”, Dr. Barbara Starfield, Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000. Her statistics were a conservative estimate.

In one of the last interviews (2009) she did before she died, Dr. Starfield told me as much. She remarked that later studies reported higher death rates from the effects of the American medical system.

This is the FDA at work. This is the federal agency whose wet dream is limiting people’s access to nutritional supplements, which cause virtually no deaths.

Over 1240 scientist signatories have demanded that a study  previously published on the toxic effects of GMO maize and RoundUp that was  retracted by the journal Food and Chemical  Toxicology (FCT) be reinstated. This is a massive backlash  against an industry that has tried to silence well-qualified scientists from  publishing the truth about GMOs.

These scientists and others plan to boycott Elsevier -a ‘world-leading provider of scientific information – until the journal, FCT,  reinstates a study carried out by Gilles Eric Séralini et al., which was  been debated throughout scientific and non-scientific circles alike.

Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini is a biologist at the University of  Caen. He published a study on GMOs which clearly showed how  damaging they were to health, and pointing out that “Agricultural GMOs  do not exist independently of pesticides.” That study can be found  here.

One scientist said:

The suppression of scientific evidence for commercial gain  should be punishable by criminal charges. The tobacco companies got away with  this for nearly 30 years before the world woke up to the problem, and even then  the response was insufficient. The risks posed by the epigenetic  response of plant DNA to foreign genes is potentially catastrophic, and the  precautionary principle should apply. Censoring science is playing  with peoples lives.”

Read: Top  10 Worst GMO Foods

Following is part of the statement published by Elsevier referencing their retraction:

“The journal Food and Chemical Toxicology retracts  the article “Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant  genetically modified maize,” which was published in this journal  in November 2012. This retraction comes after a thorough and  time-consuming analysis of the published article and the data it  reports, along with an investigation into the peer-review behind the article.   The Editor in-Chief deferred making any public statements regarding this  article until this investigation was complete, and the authors were notified of  the findings.”

Seralini has vowed he will republish his study. He believes the study was  only retracted due to lobbyist pressure and the symbolic effect the study would  have on the industry. With the retraction of this study (and despite others  indicating GMO dangers), companies like Monsanto, the makers of RoundUp  chemicals, can say, ‘there has never been a study proving GMOs pose a health  risk.’ That is quantifiably wrong.

You can see more comments about scientists being silenced on GMOs here. One of  the comments posted on the retraction and attempted  silencing of the scientists involved in the Seralini study sums up the  issue perfectly:

“Our American children have been the unwilling science experiments to GMOs  and their health issues have skyrocketed. 1 out of 2 of our children will have  Autism in 20 years if we keep going at the rate we are now. Diabetes expenses  will eat up all of our federal health care budget in 13 years. Failure to  conceive in the US is now at 30%. These and many more health conditions have  been linked to GMOs and Glyphosate. Moms Across America are seeing their  children get better when they get off GMOs, from autism, allergies, auto immune  and asthma.

Seralini’s study was a warning, Moms choose to heed it and be “Better safe  than sorry”. We chose raise awareness to fight to get GMOs labeled and eat GMO  free and organic or the future of our country and the world. And we will never  stop. We will not give up. Because the love for our children will never end. We  are supported by Seralini’s undauntable courage and applaud his  research.” – ZEN HONEYCUTT

Why did Monsanto want this study to disappear? You can find one reason in  this simple statement:

“They [GMOs] make animals seriously  ill.”

Monsanto cannot suppress us forever. Join the masses who are  telling Monsanto we know the truth about their poison crops, and we won’t be  suppressed any longer. Seralini’s study needs to be on the front of every major  news publication when it is republished. The biotech trolls should have a heyday  trying to shoot it down a second time.

Congressman Bill Posey Has Strong Words for Government Agency.  Concludes: “I think the CDC Should Be Investigated.”

image00WATCHUNG, N.J., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — In an April 8 interview on AutismOne’s A Conversation of Hope radio show, Congressman Bill Posey’s strong resolve and demands for transparency were evident as he discussed the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s handling of vaccine safety studies which affect  “our most precious resource in our nation – our children.” The 30-minute interview, conducted by vaccine industry watchdog, PhD biochemist Brian Hooker, delves into what Posey called “the incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials.”

Photo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140415/MN03902

The Florida legislator, known as “Mr. Accountability,” did not mince words when criticizing current and past CDC officials including indicted fraudster Dr. Poul Thorsen; CDC director turned Merck Vaccine President Dr. Julie Gerberding; and the agency’s current spokesperson regarding autism and vaccines, Dr. Coleen Boyle.

On Thorsen, Posey said “If you read through the emails and learned about the meetings and the financial arrangement this crook had with the CDC, it will make you absolutely sick to your stomach. This was no casual researcher way down the line. This is the CDC’s key man in Denmark.  He was closely tied to the CDC’s top vaccine safety researchers… as long as Thorsen was cooking the books to produce the results they wanted, they didn’t care whether the studies were valid or how much money was being siphoned off the top…It’s like the Security and Exchange Commission and Bernie Madoff. But it’s worse because we’re talking about someone who basically stole money that was supposed to be used to improve the health and safety of our most vulnerable in our society – our young babies.”

Dr. Hooker remarked that Thorsen had collaborated with the CDC on 36 papers, not just one paper as claimed by Dr. Boyle, and that the agency refused to investigate studies exonerating vaccines’ role in causing autism following his indictment on wire fraud and money laundering. Posey described Boyle as “intentionally evasive,” in his questioning of her at a Congressional hearing.  “I asked her a very direct question. ‘Have you done a study comparing autism rates in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children?…’  She started telling us about everything she’s done …After she wasted three minutes, I cut her off and I demanded that she answer the question. And then, only then, did she admit that the federal government has never done that very simple, fundamental, basic study.”

About Boyle’s denial of a true increase in autism, Posey said, “I know we have an autism epidemic. You know it. She knows it.  She knows we know it. But for some reason they refuse to acknowledge it publicly.”  Regarding Boyle’s assertion that the increase is due to better diagnosing, Posey said, “I don’t think anybody that’s intellectually honest with this issue can begin to fathom that lame excuse that she uses.” He also described an orchestrated campaign on behalf of the CDC and vaccine industry: “people who do all the blogging and shredding anyone who dares question the unaccountable bureaucrats.” He spoke of “their little media network [that will] twist the truth to disparage, to malign, to vilify, to denigrate anybody who wants any kind of accountability….”

Posey then discussed his co-sponsorship with Rep. Carolyn Maloney of the Vaccine Safety Study Act. He said the proposed legislation would compel the government to conduct a retrospective vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study of health outcomes. He felt it could be done with “accountability and direct oversight of the government”

In his closing remarks, Posey said, “The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety. Huge conflict of interest.  I think the CDC should be investigated.”

Barry Segal, founder of Focus Autism, which sponsors Dr. Hooker’s investigative research, called the interview “a game changer.”

Representative Bill Posey is serving his third term in Florida’s 8th Congressional District. He serves on the Committee for Science, Space and Technology. He was instrumental in the release of CDC documents regarding a link between vaccines and autism. These papers are now being analyzed by several researchers, including Dr. Brian Hooker.

Brian Hooker, PhD, PE, has 15 years experience in the field of bioengineering and is an associate professor at Simpson University where he specializes in biology and chemistry. His over 50 science and engineering papers have been published in internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Hooker has a son, aged 16, who developed normally but then regressed into autism after receiving Thimerosal (mercury-containing) vaccines.

The Focus Autism Foundation is dedicated to providing information that exposes the cause or causes of the autism epidemic and the rise of chronic illnesses – focusing specifically on the role of vaccinations. A Shot of Truth is an educational website sponsored by Focus Autism.  AutismOne is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides education and supports advocacy efforts for children and families touched by an autism diagnosis.

Milk-With-Carton

(NaturalNews) You’ve probably seen it on milk cartons, yogurt containers and cheese packaging if you live in the U.S. — that little asterisk followed by a claim that the milk used in the product does not contain rBST, rBGH or other artificial growth hormones. But a series of studies conducted by researchers at Harvard University has revealed that, despite this claim, many commercial dairy products still contain high levels of growth hormones, particularly the feminizing hormone estrogen.
While most rBST- and rBGH-free dairy products likely do not contain these added hormones, the fact of the matter is that modern dairy production methods, particularly those now used in the U.S., cause more hormones than normal to be present in milk. The reason for this, according to Ganmaa Davaasambuu, a physician and scientist from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), is that many commercial dairy herds are milked excessively as well as during pregnancy, both of which result in higher-than-normal hormone levels in the finished product.
“Thanks to the way it is produced nowadays, milk from a commercial dairy is likely to contain much higher levels of natural sex hormones than you’d find in milk from a traditional (pre-industrial) dairy herd,” writes Josh Harkinson for Mother Jones, citing Davaasambuu’s extensive research into the subject.

Old-fashioned milk did not cause disease like today’s milk

Back in the early 2000s, Davaasambuu and her colleagues decided to investigate why rates of prostate cancer in Japan had escalated nearly 25-fold over the past half-century. This inquiry led the team to the discovery that cancer rates began to spike right around the time that American dairy techniques were brought over to the country following World War II.
After examining roughly 36 years of dietary data in Japan, Davaasambuu and her team came to the conclusion that the American way of raising dairy cattle in the 21st century — commercial herds in the U.S. are typically milked for 10 months out of the year rather than five or six, and are also routinely milked during pregnancy — is the most likely cause of increased cancer rates in Japan. These modern milking methods are not only taxing on cattle, but also produce milk that is highly estrogenic.
This was made more evident after a followup study in Mongolia, where cancer rates are much lower, found that traditional milking methods did not produce these negative outcomes. By milking their cows less frequently and not during pregnancy, the Mongols studied were observed to be largely free of disease.
“The reason that milk produced in America and Japan has more sex hormones than Mongolian milk is simple,” adds Harkinson. “The free-range cows kept by Mongolian nomads get pregnant naturally and are milked for five or six months after they give birth. In Japan and the United States, the typical dairy cow is milked for 10 months a year, which is only possible because she is impregnated by artificial insemination while still secreting milk from her previous pregnancy.”
“Milk from pregnant cows contains far higher hormone levels than milk from nonpregnant ones–five times the estrogen during the first two months of pregnancy, according to one study, and a whopping 33 times as much estrogen as the cow gets closer to term,” he adds.

Forced dairy consumption at public schools making kids sick

Sadly, commercial milk products remain a staple in many public school cafeterias, both in the U.S. and Japan. Public schoolchildren in Japan, in fact, are still required, thanks to an antiquated 1954 law, to consume 200 milliliters of commercial milk every day during lunch.
Other studies have shown that chronic consumption of commercial milk can lead to allergies, asthma and other serious health problems besides cancer, which begs the question — why is the government still peddling this processed junk food to our children, while the traditional milk of old, in all of its raw and wholesome glory, remains illegal in many states?

(NaturalNews) By the time a person feels thirsty, dehydration has already kicked in. This not only means that the urge to quench thirst is strong, but unfortunately, that the body’s mood, mental ability and energy levels have already been compromised. “Our thirst sensation doesn’t really appear until we are 1 or 2 percent dehydrated. By then dehydration is already setting in and starting to impact how our mind and body perform,” says Lawrence E. Armstrong, professor of physiology at the University of Connecticut. Armstrong was also the lead researcher in a study on the subject of hydration, which reinforced the importance of drinking plenty of water.

Furthermore, Armstrong advises people to get over the “it won’t happen to me” syndrome. He says that people tend to think that only very physically active individuals are prone to dehydration, a belief that is false. “Dehydration affects all people, and staying properly hydrated is just as important for those who work all day at a computer as it is for marathon runners, who can lose up to 8 percent of their body weight as water when they compete.”

His study examined two groups with age ranges in the twenties. One group was comprised of men and the other, women. After being sufficiently hydrated the night before, each group walked on a treadmill to induce dehydration. Then, things like their reaction time, memory and reasoning were studied. Finally, these abilities were examined again but when the participants were fully hydrated.

The results show that significant changes to the body take place when it’s dehydrated. Both genders experienced fatigue and the inability to focus as well, even during mild dehydration. Researchers also noted increased anxiety and fatigue in men, although the incidences were higher for women. Women tended to develop headaches, whereas men were more likely to experience general fatigue or overall tension.

Benefits of drinking more water

Abby Phon, Certified Holistic Health and Wellness Coach, explains that the body benefits tremendously by drinking water.

1.) Flushes out toxins and boosts immunity. Drinking water can keep colds and flu at bay and get rid of toxins through sweat and urination.

2.) Promotes weight loss. The full feeling people get from drinking water makes people less inclined to overindulge.

3.) Keeps the digestive tract healthy. Water is a natural way to relieve constipation and help with digestion.

4.) Increases energy. Having more water contributes to overall energy since it helps lubricate joints, keeps the brain functioning properly and staves off headaches.

How much is necessary? Current suggestions indicate that to stay properly hydrated, people should divide their weight in pounds by half. The resulting number is the approximate number of ounces of water that should be consumed daily.

20/20 Hind-site is WORTHLESS if Your Children are Crippled For Life … Or Deceased … Wake Up !!!

HepB

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Our trust in the American government health agencies to protect our lives and our health has been decimated over the years as we (you and I) diligently do more and more research into the Corruption, Cronyism and Ineptitude that has infiltrated such entities as the CDC, FDA, EPA and the USDA. This is a fact that is forming a ground swell of protest that gains momentum daily.

We are blatantly aware that many of these agencies don’t even sing off the same music sheet, with one claiming a mechanism is perfectly safe (CDC) while the other (EPA) indicates the level of some vaccine components administered is extremely toxic to the human physiology (such as Mercury/Thimerosal and Aluminum in vaccines etc…).

America boasts the highest level of medical technology on this planet but suffers one of the highest rates of infant mortality of all modern industrialized nations … and we are the most vaccinated society on this planet by a huge margin … where does coincidence leave off and it’s a fact begin?

Now we will focus on a mechanism that proves the ultimate danger of vaccines with a clear blatancy that is beyond question by causing suffering on a huge scale. And then we compound this by the fact that in so many cases it is mandatory. The Hepatitis B vaccine is Known To Cause …

Lupus

Liver damage

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

Multiple sclerosis

HepB_02b[1]

And more …

Even the effectiveness of this vaccine is highly questionable after multiple doses, with each additional dose drastically increasing the chances of serious negative side affects!

Hep_b_failure[1]

This so called prventitive medicine has proven to be one of the (if not the) most dangerous vaccines/vaccinations in our so-called benevolent governments arsenal of protection … but please dont just take our word for it, read on …

Family Health Freedom Network writes:

“In increasing numbers, parents across the country are contacting the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) to report opposition to regulations being enacted by state health department officials that legally require children to be injected with three doses of hepatitis B vaccine before being allowed to attend daycare, kindergarten, elementary school, high school or college,” National Vaccine Information Center reads.

As a parent, it is still your decision whether or not to vaccinate your child. There is plenty of research out there to help guide you in this decision. Don’t let your doctor or the people around you be your only source of information. Do your research and determine the best solution for your child’s long-term health.
