Should Children be Allowed to try Cannabis Before Chemo?

As the movement to legalize cannabis continues to gain momentum, and as more research is conducted, we are discovering that this easy-to-grow plant is effective in treating many difficult illnesses, and surprisingly many types of deadly cancers. Cancer treatment in the U.S. has become its own industry, and even though chemotherapy admittedly over-prescribed and is known to have many devastating side effects, chemo and radiation are still the treatments most touted by doctors and the medical establishment.

Many people are seeking out medical marijuana as an alternative to conventional cancer treatment, and success stories are easy to find. Yet, underage cancer patients sometimes find that their legal rights when fighting cancer are unclear, and that when the state decides to intervene, their personal sovereignty may be compromised.

Social Services To Family: ‘Get Flu Shots Or We’re Taking Your Baby’

The Washington Department of Social and Health Services is about to change the very nature of who is or is not responsible for making life changing decisions for your children. Whether you agree with yearly flu vaccines or not, the following report from Tacoma, Washington should scare the hell out of you because if the government moves forward with their threats then every child in America will effectively become a ward of the state.

Vitamin D supplementation reduces need for respiratory support, study suggests

Additionally -- and more pertinent to this particular study -- proper vitamin D levels have been linked to improvements in lung function, further reinforcing the importance of its supplementation.

Previous studies have delved into this very matter, with results showing that vitamin D plays a significant role in boosting respiratory health. One finding, for example, honed in on "the known effects of vitamin D on immune function... in relation to respiratory health." Its population-based study concluded that "Vitamin D appears capable of inhibiting pulmonary inflammatory responses while enhancing innate defence mechanisms against respiratory pathogens." In addition to boosting the immune system overall, vitamin D was found to improve lung function in those suffering from respiratory-inflammation conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Fructose causes reproductive problems, earlier death, study shows

An open-air mouse barn, using mice that normally tend to inhabit homes and restaurants, was created to observe male and female mice over a 32-week period. Protected tubs and open trays with vertical tube feeding stations were used to feed sucrose and HFCS proportionally to what most humans eat.

The researchers discovered that female mice that ate HFCS died earlier and had very poor reproduction cycles compared to sucrose-consuming mice. On the other hand, male mice showed no difference in toxicity from HFCS to sucrose or table sugar.

Both were equally toxic, affecting their ability to hold a territory and reproduce. The researchers concluded that all added sugars are toxic in some way, but HFCS is worse

Harvard professors who helped construct Obamacare are furious that they're not exempt

There's no clearer indictment of the kind of thinking that was responsible for the creation of Obamacare in the first place -- and the problems associated with its implementation in the real world -- than the recent flap that was engendered when Harvard professors realized that they are not exempt from the changes in their health plans that the Affordable Care Act helped bring about.

The irony is contained in the fact that Harvard is one of the institutions that was largely responsible for drafting and endorsing the Obamacare model. But now that the ivory tower profs are being forced to have a taste of their own medicine (pun intended), they -- like most Americans -- are now claiming that the flavor is somewhat bitter.

The Importance of Being Angry

Anger is a vitally important evolutionary gift and without it we are perpetual victims. Anger has two primary evolutionary functions: to let us know when we are being threatened or attacked (whether by a more 'subtle' abuse or in an explicitly violent manner) while also giving us the power to respond effectively to this threat/attack.

Dr. Burzynski: Cancer is Serious Business

Burzynski, the Movie is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history.

His victorious battles with the United States government were centered around Dr. Burzynski’s gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970?s called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and has been given permission by the FDA to begin the final phase of FDA testing–randomized controlled clinical trials.

US Musicians Drafted into CIA’s MKULTRA

Here is a bit of US history that illustrates the reach of the CIA’s infamous mind-control program, MKULTRA.

Some would say the 1940s and 50s were the most vibrant and innovative period in the history of jazz.

During those years, it was common knowledge that musicians who were busted for drug use were shipped, or volunteered to go, to Lexington, Kentucky. Lex was the first Narcotics Farm and US Health Dept. drug treatment hospital in the US.

According to diverse sources, here’s a partial list of the reported “hundreds” of jazz musicians who went to Lex: Red Rodney, Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, Sonny Stitt, Howard McGhee, Elvin Jones, Zoot Sims, Lee Morgan, Tadd Dameron, Stan Levey, Jackie McLean.

It’s also reported that Ray Charles was there, and William Burroughs, Peter Lorre, and Sammy Davis, Jr.

It was supposed to be a rehab center. A place for drying out.

You Won’t Believe Which Big-Name Groups are Opposed to Flu Vaccine Mandates

by Missy Fluegge

Labor unions representing professionals and skilled workers from many fields have publicly opposed mandatory vaccination in written statements to a government organization. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, skilled laborers, teachers, flight attendants, manufacturing employees, energy workers, and members of many more professions have spoken out against mandatory vaccines to the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC).

This news is not new, but you probably didn’t know that so many labor unions and trade groups are collectively against mandatory vaccination. These groups, representing millions of workers, include names that may surprise you...

Agency will confiscate infant if entire family doesn’t get flu shots

A state bureaucracy is threatening a mother with removal of an infant unless her entire family subjects themselves to flu shots.

Mrs. Smith is a dedicated foster mom, and has fostered seven babies. She currently raises five children, including an adopted 4-year-old daughter. Her objection to vaccines is based on safety concerns for her family, she revealed in an interview with KOMO News:

“I’ve done a lot of research on it and I don’t like some of the side effects that it has,” she said.

Among the alarming vaccine ingredients that Mrs. Smith referred to is Thimerosal, a drug stabilizer that contains the compound ethyl mercury, a known neurotoxin. Popular influenza vaccines such as Fluzone®, FluLaval®, and Fluvirin® each contain Thimerosal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this dedicated mom, who took the trouble to do her due diligence on the chemical composition of the flu vaccine, should be demonized for having done so, demonstrates an absolute, out of control on steroids,State government department, run amok.

Families with skills and kids, get the hell out of this country while you still can. The window for your exodus is closing incrementally.

Chief of Obamacare rollout resigns amid allegations of misconduct

The top Obama official overseeing the so-called rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, commonly called ObamaCare, has notified the administration on Friday that she his leaving her position after serving five years. Marilyn Tavenner, the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) administrator, said she will official vacate her office in February.

Tavenner's service included the rollout snafu in which the multi-million dollar HealthCare.gov website cause enormous problems for both the Obama administration and the Americans attempting to enroll. It also included allegations of "gaming the numbers" when it was discovered the administration released a report containing inflated enrollment statistics.

McDonald's Just Recalled 1 Million Chicken McNuggets for a Super-Gross Reason

McDonald's Japan is having a rough start to 2015. Last week, the company apologized after a customer found plastic fragments in an order of Chicken McNuggets, which were thought to have been produced at a Cargill factory in Thailand. McDonald's pulled out nearly 1 million McNuggets from the factory in one day. The same week, a customer in Misawa found a piece of vinyl in an order of McNuggets.

In a statement about the plastic contamination, company spokesman Takashi Hasegasa said, "We deeply apologize for the trouble we have caused our customers and we are taking quick measures to analyze the cause of the contamination."

Plastic and vinyl are, sadly, not the only gross items that customers have found in their McDonald's meals over the past year. In August, the company received a complaint from a customer in Osaka who had found the shard of a human tooth in an order of french fries. It was unclear at press time if the customer was in fact "lovin' it."

Elon Musk Donates $10M to Eradicating Threat of Artificial Intelligence

by TechSwarm

Elon Musk has been one of many tech luminaries who have recently intensified their concerns about the threat of Artificial Intelligence run amok. Following a reading of Nick Bostrom's book "Superintelligence," Musk stated that advanced A.I. without proper ethical boundaries are "potentially more dangerous than nukes." Stephen Hawking has said much the same, and universities such as Cambridge have said that "terminators" are one of the greatest threats to mankind according to their study program Centre for the Study of Existential Risk.

The concern has manifested into serious research being conducted to ensure that robots know their limits. The United Nations has taken up the discussion; the U.S. military is being forced to address the issue; and even one Canadian robot manufacturer has issued an open letter urging his colleagues to proceed with the utmost caution, and to support the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots...

USDA approves Monsanto's new GMO soybeans, cotton

Monsanto Co. received final U.S. approval on Thursday for herbicide-tolerant crops to be used with a new herbicide the Creve Coeur-based company says will fight problematic weed resistance on farm fields, but critics say will only worsen the problems.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service said the genetically modified cotton and soybean plants are granted “non-regulated” status. Monsanto is still waiting for final approval from the Environmental Protection Agency for the herbicide it designed to be used with the crops.

Off the Grid? Or Make Your Own Grid?

by Brian Berletic

There are many reasons people want to get "off the grid." From unstable energy prices, to environmental concerns, to even just a search for independence, the list is long and diverse. Just as diverse are attempts to "get off the grid." But as one community in Thailand is proving, sometimes building your own grid is just as good, maybe better.

The "Pa Deng model" is a project born out of necessity. The national power grid simply didn't reach the farms and villages in this remote sub-district located south of Bangkok along the border with Myanmar in Phetchaburi province. Several failed attempts at simply handing out technology had frustrated many, and the founders of this project, including one Ministry of Energy employee, decided to take matters into their own hands...

Chantix (varenicline), thoughts of suicide/self-injury and homicide

Some history: In 2008, my organization, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) commented on an unexpectedly large number of serious psychiatric and other ADEs for this drug. Specifically, we expressed concern about thoughts (ideation) of suicide, self-injury, or homicide. Also, in addition to these risks, Chantix has been associated with sudden blackouts, seizures, and impaired vision. We thought it was troubling that an alternative to nicotine replacement products (gum, patch, etc.) was the primary suspect in more reported cases of serious injury than toxic chemotherapeutic agents, potent opioids, or powerful immunosuppressant drugs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason I am running all these stories about Chantix and suicide is because last night I learned a close friend lost a family member to suicide in what has become a clear pattern. No prior signs of depression or risk of harm to self or others, put on Chantix to quit smoking, followed by erratic behavior and suicide. This is the second time this problem has hit so close to home, with another friend losing her husband the exact same way a couple years ago.

This is fascism in its ugliest form; a government that allows the sale of dangerous products by corporations, indeed protects them, in exchange for campaign contributions. In 2011, the FDA actually came out and said there was no link between Chantix and suicide, in a cover-up reminiscent of the CDC's report that there was no link between vaccines and autism, since admitted to have been a fraud by one of the authors of the CDC study.

FDA and CDC are funded with your tax dollars. They are supposed to be looking out for the safety and welfare of the taxpayers, not of large corporations.

Chantix, Smoking-Cessation Drug, Raises Suicide Risks, New Study Shows

Chantix was eight times more likely to be linked with a reported case of suicidal behavior or depression than other nicotine replacement products, such as the nicotine patch, they said.

FDA: Anti-smoking drug Chantix linked to more than 500 suicides

In 2007, Mark Alan Whitley turned to the Pfizer drug Chantix to help him kick his smoking habit. Chantix did help Whitely quit, but something else happened to the Minnesota man. His behavior became erratic and on November 29, 2007, Whitely killed himself. That same month, Pfizer added a warning to Chantix's label reflecting reports of depression, agitation and other behavior changes connected with the drug. In January 2008, the label was updated again to include suicidal ideation and suicidal behavior. A year and a half later, the FDA required what's known as a black box warning for Chantix, the most serious warning possible, saying doctors should monitor their patients for behaviors including "attempted suicide."

Label? Why is this even being sold at all?!?

‘Uncaged Corporate Parrots’ and the GMO False Narrative

British Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss has stated that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more ‘eco-friendly’. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Truss’s predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology.He was so staunch in his support that fellow Conservative Party MP Zak Goldsmith stated Paterson was little more than an industry puppet (see here). Paterson was ignorant of or quite content to ignore the devastating, deleterious health, environmental, social and economic impacts of GMOs (see here). He acted as a mouthpieces for the GMO biotech sector and made numerous false claims about the benefits and safety of GMOs that flew in the face of research findings.

Argentina: The Country That Monsanto Poisoned

American biotechnology has turned Argentina into the world’s third-largest soybean producer, but the chemicals powering the boom aren’t confined to soy and cotton and corn fields. They routinely contaminate homes and classrooms and drinking water. A growing chorus of doctors and scientists is warning that their uncontrolled use could be responsible for the increasing number of health problems turning up in hospitals across the South American nation. In the heart of Argentina’s soybean business, house-to-house surveys of 65,000 people in farming communities found cancer rates two to four times higher than the national average, as well as higher rates of hypothyroidism and chronic respiratory illnesses. Associated Press photographer Natacha Pisarenko spent months documenting the issue in farming communities across Argentina.

Time to Pull the Plug on a $30B Nuclear Fuel Boondoggle

It sounded like a good idea back in 2000. Two decades after the Cold War ended, the United States and Russia each agreed to dispose of 34 metric tons of weapons-grade plutonium -- enough for about 20,000 warheads -- by combining most of it with uranium to create mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel for commercial nuclear reactors. Proponents boasted it was a modern-day fulfillment of the biblical call for nations to "beat their swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks."

Recent photo analysis is recognizing that some of the rock features are surprisingly similar to formations here on earth that were shaped by living micro-organisms, opening up the possibility that there is, or was, indeed life on Mars. The Mars Curiosity Rover took photos of a formation on the surface of Mars called the Gillespie Lake outcrop, showing rock structures that are very similar to microbially-induced sediment structures (MISS) found on Earth, which in some cases have been dated to be up to 3.8 billion years old; some of the oldest geologic formations found our planet.

Obama targets oil and gas industry, demands massive reduction in methane emissions

Taking direct aim at the oil-and-gas industry, President Obama on Wednesday put forth long-awaited regulations on methane emissions, setting an ambitious goal of reducing those emissions by 45 percent over the next decade.

The move comes just days before the State of the Union address and underscores that, in the final two years of presidency, Mr. Obama is looking to cement his legacy on climate-change and environmental issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's a laudable goal but Obama's timing sucks. Right now the entire oil industry is being hammered by this ill-conceived oil price war against Russia. The very last thing they need is a whole new raft of "Obamaoil" regulations that will escalate costs, all in the name of controlling climate change, which changes no matter what we humans do. Methane in the atmosphere does not persist. In the presence of oxygen it decomposes to water and carbon dioxide, the first being what we need to live and the latter being what plants need to live. This underscores an observation I have been making all along; that the quality of thinking in this administration is rather poor. Policy decisions are being made for political (and in this case historical) reasons but are not thought all the way through to find potential negative consequences!

The problem with NASA's guess is that there were two separate instrument readings which prompted the alert. According to Roscosmos, first they noted an increase in the cooling system water loop pressure, followed by an increase in cabin pressure. That doesn't sound like instrumentation to me. I would chastise NASA for allowing wishful thinking to override the hard data, but they've been doing that since Challenger and Viking!

The Importance of Being Angry

Unfortunately, in many circles, anger has a bad reputation. There are several reasons for this. One reason is that we are scared when people are angry at us, so we try to scare people, especially children, out of being angry. By doing this, we hope to escape responsibility for our dysfunctional behaviour. Another reason that anger has a bad reputation is because it enables people to defend themselves against violence and other forms of abuse. But if we want obedient and hardworking students, reliable and pliant employees/soldiers and submissive law-abiding citizens, then we must terrorize people out of being angry. Social control is not easy with people who are powerful and you need your anger to be powerful.

Top Researcher Finds Medical Studies to be Largely Wrong or Fraudulent

Considering his background, Dr. John Ioannidis had good reason to expect that he might become a noted and respected researcher when he first entered the field of medical research. What he did not expect was that he would become known for challenging and exposing the bad science of his peers and finding that up to 80 percent of medical studies results are either wrong or fraudulent.

Ioannidis was unusually well prepared to enter medical research: he had been a math prodigy of near-celebrity status in high school and both of his parents were physician-researchers. He believed he would be able to follow his parents footsteps and use math to better support findings in a surprisingly sloppy field. "I assumed that everything we physicians did was basically right, but now I was going to help verify it," he said. "All we'd have to do was systematically review the evidence, trust what it told us, and then everything would be perfect."

Rise in mass die-offs seen among birds, fish and marine invertebrates

An analysis of 727 mass die-offs of nearly 2,500 animal species from the past 70 years has found that such events are increasing among birds, fish and marine invertebrates. At the same time, the number of individuals killed appears to be decreasing for reptiles and amphibians, and unchanged for mammals.

Such mass mortality events occur when a large percentage of a population dies in a short time frame. While the die-offs are rare and fall short of extinction, they can pack a devastating punch, potentially killing more than 90 percent of a population in one shot. However, until this study, there had been no quantitative analysis of the patterns of mass mortality events among animals, the study authors noted...

Fort Hood Soldier Monitoring for Ebola Symptoms Found Dead Outside Residence

A Fort Hood soldier recently ordered to self-monitor for exposure to the Ebola virus was found dead outside his off-post residence Tuesday morning.

According to Fort Hood, the soldier had recently returned to Texas on emergency leave and was ordered to self-monitor himself twice per day and report the status to medical officials. That directive is standard protocol for soldiers returning from service in West Africa.

Officials said that there is no indication the man had contracted Ebola, but medical tests were being performed to ensure there was no threat to the community.

Results of a medical exam that are expected to shed light into the man's cause of death are expected Tuesday afternoon.

LD4 was introduced by State Rep. Deborah Sanderson (R-Chelsea) on Jan. 5. At the present time, industrial hemp production is only approved in the state for research purposes after receiving federal approval. If successfully passed, LD4 would broaden opportunities for widespread production of the potential cash crop by creating a state-level licensing process that rejects any need for federal permission...

For many years, the endogenous retroviruses that comprise about 5 percent of human DNA were thought to be “junk” — that is, sequences of DNA that do not encode protein sequences and therefore cannot self-replicate.

World's largest indoor farm in Japan is 100 times more productive than outdoor fields, uses 99% less water, 40% less power and creates 80% less food waste

The statistics for this incredibly successful indoor farming endeavor in Japan are staggering: 25,000 square feet producing 10,000 heads of lettuce per day (100 times more per square foot than traditional methods) with 40% less power, 80% less food waste and 99% less water usage than outdoor fields. But the freshest news from the farm: a new facility using the same technologies has been announced and is now under construction in Hong Kong, with Mongolia, Russia and mainland China on the agenda for subsequent near-future builds.

In Search of King Solomon's Temple

But what if the ruins aren’t there?

That, in fact, is the conclusion drawn by Dr. George Buchanan, Professor Emeritus of New Testament Studies at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Buchanan posits that the original site of King Solomon’s Temple is just south of the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aska Mosque in an area where today Palestinian homes are being bulldozed to make way for a park over what is now considered by many archaeologists the old City of David.

Mandatory chickenpox vaccination increases disease rates, study shows

By now, you know they've come under fire by those who are adamant that they do more harm than good. Countless people have developed irreversible health problems and even died shortly after receiving a vaccination, which the medical community chalks up to "coincidence" or cleverly crafted wording that a patient should have known about.

Take, for example, the young Florida girl who made headlines last year when she received the flu vaccine. Marysue Grivna, now 10 years old, experienced paralysis and vision loss within a few short days of receiving the shot. She was ultimately diagnosed with a debilitating brain disease called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Today, she's confined to a wheelchair or bed and is almost entirely nonverbal.(1)

There's also the disturbing discovery of elderly people who lived at a senior care facility in Georgia. After all received the flu shot in 2014, five of them died the next week.(2)

New ‘Monsanto Law’ in Africa Would Force GMOs on Farmers

The front lines of the food sovereignty war in Ghana are swelling as the national parliament gives support to the Plant Breeders Bill. This proposed legislation contains rules that would restrict farmers from ancient practices: freely saving, swapping, and breeding seeds. Under new laws protecting the intellectual property rights of biotech, farmers would be subject to hefty fines for growing anything that has been ‘patented,’ even if their crops were cross-pollinated.

The obviously biotech-infiltrated Ghanaian government states that the new laws would “incentivize the development of new seed varieties to ensure the marketability of crops,” but farmers argue it gives rights straight to corporations like Monsanto, and not farmers who have been growing food in Ghana for centuries.

Mind control scientists and their government bureaucrat counterparts are obsessed with trying to predict human behavior.

Monsanto’s fraudulent tomato patent revoked by patent office

As Natural News readers know, there are many documents riddled with loopholes and laws that squeak by based on cleverly crafted words. The situation was no different in this case; it was ultimately determined that Monsanto was attempting to be wise wordsmiths, saying that their patent focused on conventionally bred tomatoes that had a natural resistance to botrytis, a fungal disease, and should therefore be considered as an intervention. However, the tomatoes for the patent were accessed from an area in Germany that already had the resistance to begin with; Monsanto was attempting to pull the wool over people’s eyes by indicating that their techniques were unique and, therefore, patent-worthy.

Why Is This Giant Cell Phone Tower Smack Dab in the Middle of an Elementary School Playground?

What’s wrong with this picture?

Thanks to a tip, we took a look at the playground for Anne Frank Elementary in Dallas, Texas via satellite image, where a rather large cell phone tower looms over the public school campus.

The very place that these young children (and their teachers) spend their time – both inside and outside the school building – is saturated with powerful electromagnetic frequency radiation.

This is unconscionable. How is this even allowed? To have a giant cell phone tower standing in the middle of an elementary school right on the basketball court directly between the playground where small children with developing brains are playing and the buildings they are supposed to be learning in every day on this public school campus?

“Bodes well for the future,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before we get too critical of Space-X, go back and review the history if early US Government spaceflight, including Project Vanguard, the US military's first attempt to orbit a satellite for the United States, which flopped, allowing the USSR to achieve Sputnik, then followed by the US' Explorer 1.

Then there was the Ranger program, which sent probes with TV cameras to crash into the Moon, sending back close-up images as they headed towards destruction.

Rangers 1 and 2 never got out of Earth orbit. Ranger 3 missed the Moon. Ranger 4 hit the Moon but sent back no images. Ranger 5 missed the Moon. Ranger 6 hit the Moon but did not send back images. It wasn't until Ranger 7 that the mission succeeded.

VA admits Agent Orange residue may have affected health of Air Force reservists

Air Force reservists based in the U.S. who worked after the Vietnam War in C-123 aircraft that sprayed Agent Orange during the war could have experienced adverse health effects from exposure to the herbicide, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine. The reservists who served in the contaminated C-123s experienced some degree of exposure to the toxic chemical component of Agent Orange known as TCDD (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin), and it is plausible, in some cases, that the reservists exceeded TCDD exposure guidelines for workers in enclosed settings.

After their use in Vietnam, 24 C-123 aircraft were added to the fleets of four U.S. Air Force reserve units for use in military airlifts and medical and cargo transport. From 1972 to 1982, approximately 1,500 to 2,100 U.S. Air Force Reserve personnel trained and worked aboard these C-123 aircraft...
