The Sitting Sickness

Image
If you've heard that life is movement, it's true. If you've heard that just sitting around can kill you, it's also true. Physical inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death worldwide! You may have heard the media reporting recently on several studies showing that prolonged sitting significantly increases the risk for death, including death from heart disease and cancer, but I'm not sure this news has really hit home yet.

Most people know that exercise is critical for health and preventing disease, but the issue of physical activity and inactivity is much bigger than exercise. Regardless of the amount of exercise one performs, the level of aerobic fitness one exhibits, or whether a person is thin or overweight, stillness still kills. Apparent health and leading an otherwise healthy lifestyle does not compensate for extended periods of sitting around, and we Americans do a great deal of sitting around. We've even built over 4 million miles of roads so …

Dr. F. R. Klenner and Vitamin C Megadoses

Image
Dr. Tom Levy, in the introduction to his invaluable book Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins: Curing the Incurable, writes:

At the height of the polio epidemic in 1949, when all young parents lived in the fear that their babies and young children would be the next victims, Frederick R. Klenner, M.D., published that he had successfully cured 60 out of 60 polio patients who had presented to his office or to the emergency room! Furthermore, he reported that none of the 60 patients treated had any residual damage from the polio virus that often left its survivors crippled for life. This evidence was subsequently presented by Klenner in 1949 to an annual session of the American Medical Association that dealt with the treatment of polio patients. You will see that Klenner’s research and data are clear-cut and straightforward, and it will then be completely left up to the reader to determine how such information was ignored in the past and remains ignored today.

Vaccine fraud exposed

   Measles and mumps making a huge comeback because vaccines are designed to fail, say Merck virologists

Disclaimer: I am not an opponent of the theory of inoculation. Nor am I opposed to science. What I am opposed to is fraudulent science, and that’s what this article is all about.

Measles and mumps are making a huge comeback in the United States, but doctors and journalists all make the same critical error in understanding why. They blame “parents who don’t vaccinate their kids” as the cause, but the real cause — as revealed by whistleblowing scientists working for top vaccine manufacturers — is that measles and mumps vaccines are designed to fail from the start.

Scientific fraud, it turns out, is an inherent part of the vaccine industry.

How do we know? Because whistleblowers who worked in the industry have found the courage to speak out and tell the truth. These people are the Edward Snowdens of the vaccine industry.

Natural Way to Help Sleep

The Efficacy and Safety of Exogenous Melatonin for Primary Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders affect approximately 20% of the American population. A sleep disorder exists whenever a lower quality of sleep leads to impaired functioning or excessive sleepiness. Although sleep disorders may be accompanied by other medical and/or psychiatric conditions, in many cases, sleep disorders exist in the absence of these other conditions, and are considered to be primary sleep disorders. The most common sleep disorder is insomnia, which is classified as a dyssomnia by the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD). Delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS) is another sleep disorder that is classified as a dyssomnia by the ICSD. Individuals with DSPS complain of difficulty falling asleep and difficulty waking-up at desired bed times and wake times, respectively. This disorder is thought to result from an out-of-phase endogenous circadian pacemaker that is displaced to a later than normal phase. …

Aluminium poisoning us daily

The Cancer-Causing Metal Millions Eat, Wear or Have Injected Into Their Kids

Aluminum is considered by most health authorities perfectly acceptable to eat, wear as an antiperspirant, and inject into your body as a vaccine adjuvant, but new research indicates it has cancer-causing properties, even at levels 100,000 times lower than found in certain consumer products.

A concerning new study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry demonstrates clearly that exposure to aluminum can increase migratory and invasive properties of human breast cancer cells. This has extremely important implications, because mortality from breast cancer is caused by the spread of the tumor and not from the presence of the primary tumor in the breast itself. This profound difference, in fact, is why a groundbreaking new National Cancer Institute commissioned expert panel recently called for the complete reclassification of some types of non-progressive 'breast cancer' and 'prostate cance…

Blood pressure meds - more than double breast cancer risk

Image
If you are a woman and you take calcium channel blockers like amlodipine (Norvasc) or nicardipine (Cardene) to manage your high blood pressure, you could be putting yourself at serious risk of developing breast cancer. This is according to a new study recently published in the journal, JAMA Internal Medicine, which found that women who take such drugs have about a 250 percent increased risk of developing some of the most common types of breast cancer compared to other women.


Dr. Christopher Li and his colleagues from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, learned this after evaluating several groups of women, some of whom currently have breast cancer and have been taking calcium channel blocker drugs for many years. Compared to women not taking the drugs, the drugged-up women were found to be significantly more likely to have either ductal or lobular breast cancer.

As covered by Reuters, the observational study involved nearly 3,000 women, 905 of whom had…

Could Cannabis Cure Crohn's Disease?

Medical Marijuana Achieves ‘Complete Remission’ Of Crohn's Disease; Drug Improves Appetite And Sleep Function, With No Side Effects


Crohn's disease, one of several inflammatory bowel diseases, achieved "complete remission" in nearly half the subjects of one study that were exposed to smoking medical marijuana on a regular basis.

Published in the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the studyexamined the effects of consistent marijuana use on Crohn's patients who suffered from severe cases of the disease. The results of the 21-subject study point toward the drug's anti-inflammatory properties as being responsible for quieting symptoms in many patients, and even reaching total remission in others.


The Disease: Causes, Symptoms, And Treatments

Often mischaracterized as an autoimmune disease, Crohn's disease is in fact an immune deficiency state. Arising from a host of genetic, environmental, and immunological factors, the disease causes a chronic …

5 Poison ‘Medicines’ Women Should Avoid and Replace with Natural Remedies

Image
While science is always developing, the western world is slow to alter its ways in the face of evidence pointing to the dangers or inefficiency of new medicine and realizations that old treatments could replace current medicines. Further, it is no different than some of the decisions we make with our health. Everyone could make some beneficial changes, and a woman’s well-being is often neglected especially due to hard-sticking health myths.

Here are 5 ‘medicines’ that can easily be replaced with more natural alternatives:

1. Uva Ursi Instead of Antibiotoics

Antibiotics are already over-prescribed for many ailments, and they are causing bacteria to become stronger and more resistant to the prescription drugs that are often prescribed. Urinary tract infections are often stubborn and are primarily treated in allopathic medicine with more than one type of antibiotic. This type of infection can happen often in women, and is sometimes referred to as ‘the honeymooner’s disease.’



Uva Ursi, also…

'Hidden Dangers' of Mammograms

Image
The breast cancer industry's holy grail (that mammography is the primary weapon in the war against breast cancer) has been disproved. In fact, mammography appears to have CREATED 1.3 million cases of breast cancer in the U.S. population that were not there.

A disturbing new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine is bringing mainstream attention to the possibility that mammography has caused far more harm than good in the millions of women who have employed it over the past 30 years as their primary strategy in the fight against breast cancer.


Titled "Effect of Three Decades of Screening Mammography on Breast-Cancer Incidence," researchers estimated that among women younger than 40 years of age, breast cancer was overdiagnosed, i.e. "tumors were detected on screening that would never have led to clinical symptoms," in 1.3 million U.S. women over the past 30 years. In 2008, alone, "breast cancer was overdiagnosed in more than 70,000 women; th…

Turmeric for Diabetes

   How Turmeric Has An Anti-Diabetic Effect On The Body

Many parts of the world have epidemic rates of hypertension, ischemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and stroke. Inflammation has been shown to contribute to the development of diabetes and these related conditions. Evidence available in 2011 suggests that certain medicinal plants possess hypoglycemic, or sugar-lowering, properties due to their rich flavonoid components, and have therefore warranted extensive research to uncover the metabolic pathways involved. As always, consult a health care professional before using herbal remedies to treat illness.

Extracts from turmeric may help manage blood sugar levels in people with type-2 diabetes, suggest data from a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial from China.


Daily supplements of curcuminoids for three months was associated with improved glycemic control in 50 type-2 diabetics, compared to placebo, according to findings published in Molecular Nutrition & Food Resea…

Oral sex can cause throat cancer

Image
People who have had more than five oral-sex partners in their lifetime are 250% more likely to have throat cancer than those who do not have oral sex, a new study suggests.

The researchers believe this is because oral sex may transmit human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus implicated in the majority of cervical cancers.

The new findings should encourage people to consistently use condoms during oral sex as this could protect against HPV, the team says. Other experts say that the results provide more reason for men to receive the new HPV vaccine.

Maura Gillison at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland, US, and colleagues collected blood and saliva samples from the throats of 100 patients diagnosed with cancers of the tonsils or back of the throat. The scientists also took samples from 200 healthy people for comparison.


By combining the blood and saliva samples with antibody molecules, Gillison's team could tell whether a person had ever had an HPV i…

Cure for Gray Hair

New scientific breakthrough mimics an age-old remedy for gray hair and baldness: Onion juice


Days ago it was announced that European researchers had discovered a breakthrough cure for gray and thinning hair: A topical application of a sun-activated compound called PC-KUS (a modified pseudocatalase). However, the researchers may be a few hundred years late with their discovery since onion juice has been used as a remedy for thin and graying hair for ages.

What the researchers found was that gray hair is primarily caused by a buildup of hydrogen peroxide at the root of hair follicles and that this was due in great part to a reduction in the natural antioxidant compound catalase. In addition to helping cleanse the scalp and follicles, onion juice also promotes the production of catalase. Catalase prevents gray hair as well as promoted thicker hair follicles.


The researchers "new" breakthrough appears to be the rediscovery of a remedy for gray hair and baldness that herbalists h…
