How to Purify Water With Seeds from the Moringa Tree

Waking Times

A whopping 780 million people around the world can’t take a clean, pure glass of water to their lips to quench their thirst. Purifying water can be expensive and cumbersome in many countries, and without access to clean water or sanitation, disease runs rampant, and many people die unnecessarily from water-borne illness. Fortunately, due to the collaboration of the University of Botswana and researchers from Uppsala University, a natural and inexpensive way to purify water has been uncovered - Moringa oleifera.

Data trove shows U.S. doctors reap millions from Medicare

In 2012, south Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen received $20.8 million in Medicare payments, the highest amount the government health plan for the elderly and disabled paid an individual provider that year, according to a Reuters analysis of federal data released on Wednesday.

A California laboratory received $190 million, the most Medicare paid a single entity in 2012.

Family physician Tatiana Pavlova Greenfield, who practices in Maryland, may have received an average of more than $86,000 per patient that year, according to the Reuters review, and $3.3 million in total. That compares to an average of $2,200 per Medicare patient in 2012. Asked for comment, an employee at the office where Greenfield worked said she "had left the country."

The Great American Grocery Hoax

There is a big secret out there in the grocery store aisles that no one wants you to know. There is a hoax of monumental proportions that is being perpetrated on the American public.

Before I tell you what it is, let me remind you of some things that you already know.

It's no secret at all that the American economy is in dire straits. Unemployment has skyrocketed and today's dollars buy a lot less than the dollars of just a few years ago. Even the most thrifty shopper will pay substantially more for a cart full of groceries. To make matters worse, our country's main food-producing areas have been devastated by droughts, and you can expect that prices will only go up from here.

So people work for slave wages, if they can find work at all, then go to the grocery store and buy what they can afford. And that is where the secret comes in.

MASS VIOLENCE LINKED TO PRESCRIPTION PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS - A RESOURCE PAGE

From SSRIstories above - List of school shootings known to be linked to SSRIs Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Colombine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold's medical records have never been made available to the public.

Jeff Weise, age 16, had been prescribed 60 mg/day of Prozac (three times the average starting dose for adults!) when he shot his grandfather, his grandfather's girlfriend and many fellow students at Red Lake, Minnesota. He then shot himself. 10 dead, 12 wounded.

Cory Baadsgaard, age 16, Wahluke (Washington state) High School, was on Paxil (which caused him to have hallucinations) when he took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. He has no memory of the event.

Chris Fetters, age 13, killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With today's stabbing incident at the school, it is time to reprise this story.

As of this writing, the 16-year old suspect's name has not been released, but he is being described by fellow students as quiet and shy.

US sees sharpest health insurance premium increases in years

Americans have recently been hit with some of the largest premium increases in years, according to a Morgan Stanley survey of insurance brokers.

The investment bank’s April survey of 148 brokers found that this quarter, the average premium increase for customers renewing an insurance plan is 12 percent in the small group market and 11 percent in the individual market, according to Forbes’ Scott Gottlieb.

The hikes — the largest in the past three years, according to Morgan Stanley’s quarterly reports — are “largely due to changes under the [Affordable Care Act],” analysts concluded. Rates have been growing increasingly fast throughout all of 2013, after a period of drops in 2012.

What You Need to Know About Collagen and Anti-Aging Skin Care

Collagen is a natural protein the body produces, and it’s one of the main building blocks of cells, tissues, and organs. The production of collagen slows down as the body ages and at a much faster rate for women than men. In fact, collagen production in women slows by a rate of one percent a year after age 20, leading to women losing half their natural collagen proteins by the time they reach the age of 50.

MIT Researchers Show How Particles From Coughs and Sneezes Travel Up To 200 Times Further Than Previously Thought

When you are sick, practicing social distancing techniques not only protects you from the crowds, it protects the crowds from you. If one actually falls ill, the best thing to do from a public health standpoint is not brave it through the illness to get to work, but self-quarantine at home to prevent the spread of the virus. You may not realize it, but that multiphase turbulent buoyant cloud you’re about to expel in a sneeze of cough have associated gas clouds that keep their potentially infectious droplets aloft over much greater distances than previously realized, say MIT researchers.

5 Recent Underreported Environmental Disasters

Pollution has long been an accepted cost of cheap energy production, particularly in states desperate for jobs. Big Energy is a powerful presence in Washington, working hard to block and gut environmental regulation and to defang the agencies tasked with protecting the country's natural resources. Weak or outdated laws governing toxic chemicals, and the absence of standardized oversight, tracking mechanisms or meaningful punishment for oil spills and leaks gives industry the leeway to keep polluting.

In the last twelve months, a rash of devastating oil, coal ash and chemical incidents have highlighted how extreme environmental degradation is now standard practice. Here are some of the worst.

Nat Geo: Gulf Oil Spill "Not Over": Dolphins, Turtles Dying in Record Numbers

—More than 900 bottlenose dolphins have been found dead or stranded in the oil spill area since April 2010. If you stretched the corpses lengthwise, that's 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) of dead dolphins, Inkley said. Scientists know that is more than in previous years because they've been recording deaths and strandings in the Gulf for a decade.

Ongoing research also shows that dolphins swimming in oiled areas are underweight, anemic, and showing signs of liver and lung diseases. (Related: "U.S. Dolphin Deaths Rise to 300; Cause Still a Mystery.")

A top predator like the dolphin falling ill is a sign that species further down the food chain are also having trouble, Inkley said.

Police killings in America

Hardly a week goes by without a video emerging of another wanton killing by police somewhere in the country. The so-called “justice” system in America is notorious for its brutal treatment of workers and youth who get caught up in its web.

Despite having only five percent of the world’s population, the United States holds one quarter of the world’s prison inmates. Some 2.2 million Americans are in prison, and 4.8 million are on probation or parole. The US is one of a handful of developed countries that carries out the barbaric practice of capital punishment.

Capitalist rule in America has always been carried out by violent means, but the presence of police, armed guards and the military in daily life has grown rapidly in the aftermath of the financial crash of 2008. Its growth has paralleled a further increase in already staggering levels of social inequality.

It is strange that when obesity and heart disease kills hundreds of thousands of Americans each year the high fat, empty calorie, processed junk that helps cause their deaths is still sold in stores across the country, and the shop owners that push this junk are free to legally do so, yet a farmer selling raw milk is prosecuted for selling a totally natural product, a product that has caused 2 deaths in 13 years.

Governments are recommending that people no longer shake hands or have sex with anyone who is not a regular, monogamous partner. Talking to the BBC the WHO said:

“(It’s) “one of the most challenging Ebola outbreaks we have ever dealt with” and could take another four months to contain,”

Note: Five more deaths have occurred since this report was published.

World’s number 1 herbicide (Glyphosate) found in US mothers’ breast milk

Sustainable Pulse, Apr 6 2014

In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found "high" levels in 3 out of the 10 samples tested. The shocking results point to glyphosate levels building up in women’s bodies over a period of time, which has until now been refuted by both global regulatory authorities and the biotech industry.

The levels found in the breast milk testing of 76 ug/l to 166 ug/l are 760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allows for individual pesticides. They are however less than the 700 ug/l maximum contaminant level (MCL) for glyphosate in the U.S., which was decided upon by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) based on the now seemingly false premise that glyphosate was not bio-accumulative.

Glyphosate-containing herbicides are the top-selling herbicides in the world and are sold under trademarks such as Monsanto’s "Roundup". Monsanto’s sales of Roundup jumped 73 percent to $371 million in 2013 because of its increasing use on genetically engineered crops (GE Crops).

Depression, suicide among Canadian soldiers concerns military surgeon general

There have been eight suspected suicides in the Canadian Forces since the beginning of the year but it's unclear whether they represent a sustained pattern, says the military's surgeon general.

Testifying before the all-party House of Commons defence committee on Tuesday, Brig.-Gen. Jean-Robert Bernier noted separately that depression, especially among male Forces members, is double that of the civilian population and represents a "major concern."

Roughly 7.8 per cent of the military reported episodes of depression prior to the Afghan war, but the numbers are being updated, he added.

Medical professionals draw a direct link between instances of depression and suicide. Much of the public attention in the aftermath of the Afghan war has been focused on post-traumatic stress, which counts depression among its constellation of symptoms.

Tuberculosis Back in the U.S.; Obama, Illegals to Blame

• Four states account for more than half of all TB cases: California, Texas, New York and Florida.

By the 1960s, tuberculosis (TB) had been almost totally eradicated in the United States. But 50 years later, according to a March 20 Reuters article, “Half a million people fell sick with dangerous superbug strains of TB in 2012, but fewer than one in four were diagnosed.” The World Health Organization has called drug-resistant tuberculosis (DRTB) a “public health crisis,” predicting that worldwide two million people may be infected by next year. If TB was on the outs, why is it coming back now in more virulent strains?

The culprit? A massive unregulated flow of lawbreakers crossing our southern border from Mexico and Latin America has led to a resurgence of fatal airborne diseases like TB that attack the lungs.

This Map Shows The Deadly Aftermath Of War Right Here At Home

Army Spc. Ivan Lopez, the veteran who fatally shot three people before taking his own life Wednesday at Fort Hood, Texas, is among a growing number of recent veterans who have committed violent crimes after returning from war.

In 2008, The New York Times compiled a list of 121 cases in which veterans were charged with a killing after returning home, and Current TV, GOOD and MGMT.design collaborated to update the research in 2010. The Huffington Post collected data from these sources and more recent news articles to create the infographic below, which shows that at least 194 veterans have been charged with killings after returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. It also shows that there has been a concentration of such incidents around military bases. Our research may not be a complete tally, but these were the cases we could confirm.

It frustrates me greatly that the one question these writers refuse to ask is, how many of these Vets committing violence were on SSRIS?!?THAT is the research which needs to be going on, not pinning incidents to a damned digital map!!

There is a known linkage between taking these drugs and violence; but because they are so profitable for the large pharmaceutical houses which make them, that aspect of their chemical effect on the human brain is simply swept under the proverbial rug.

The Best Type of Milk for Your Anti-Aging Diet

For years, we’ve been told that cow’s milk and dairy products must be part of a healthy anti-aging diet, and these claims have mostly been based on one nutrient: calcium. Without it, how could we maintain strong bones or avoid osteoporosis as we age? The truth is that we can get calcium from a plethora of plant-based foods in our anti-aging diet, including kale, spinach, collard greens, broccoli, and sesame seeds.

The famous Food Guide pyramids have been telling you that milk and dairy are an essential part of a complete and balanced diet, but a lot of people don’t realize that, in order to ensure that you’re truly aging well, you may need to adjust the milk component of your anti-aging diet.

Toxic Combo of Roundup and Fertilizers Blamed for Tens of Thousands of Deaths

The public's appreciation of the toxicity of glyphosate—the active ingredient in Monsanto's broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup—is still limited, despite highly damning research being published.

The fact that Monsanto marketed Roundup as "environmentally friendly" and "biodegradable" probably has a lot to do with this general lack of insight.

More people are apt to remember the Roundup commercial than recall the fact that Monsanto was twice found guilty of false advertising of this herbicide. In 2009, a French court again upheld these earlier convictions.

Mounting evidence shows that glyphosate is FAR more toxic than anyone previously suspected, both alone and in combination with other additives (as in the case of Roundup), or in combination with other agricultural chemicals and/or heavy metals.

Deadly Ebola virus spreads

Defying efforts at containment, the Ebola outbreak that began in Guinea and has caused 90 dead in Guinea and Liberia has now spread further across West Africa into Mali in what Doctors without Borders is calling an “unprecedented” outbreak.

The U.N.’s World Health Organization, or WHO, has identified the active virus as the Zaire strain of Ebola. The virus has a death rate approaching 90 percent, suggesting that unless contained, the outbreak in West Africa could become one of deadliest epidemics of Ebola, for which there is no known cure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are confirmed cases in Mali, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. There is one rumored case in Canada, while the Minneapolis patient is reported to be suffering from Lassa Fever rather than ebola. The problem is the long period of time between when a patient becomes infected and infectious and the first manifestation of symptoms alerting the patient they are ill. This time period averages 16 days but can be as long as three weeks, during which time the patient goes about his business, and worse, travels across borders. This is why containment is such a problem as it is impossible to accurately forecast how far the infection has spread. In this age of rail and air travel, infected but not symptomatic patients could already be all across Africa and into other continents.

What should concern everyone is that we know we live under a government that does NOT want to report bad news. Remember the Gulf Oil Disaster, and Obama's swim in water that was really really close to the Gulf (but not actually in it) to prove Gulf seafood was safe to eat? And three years after the Fukushima disaster, only now are they admitting the reactor in unit 3 did in fact explode, and still insist Pacific seafood is safe to eat, to protect the seafood corporations.

Do you trust this government to tell you the truth if Ebola is already here in the US? Hardly. The people in DC want you to stay at your jobs, go about your business, pay your taxes, join the Army, spend your money at the stores, and so forth. You are of no use to them if you stay at home out of fear of infection.

Remember Saddam's nuclear weapons?

Remember Assad's Sarin?

Remember human-caused global warming?

Do you trust this government to tell you the truth if Ebola is already here in the US?

The information will be used to conduct checkups and learn about the health conditions of those passengers in order to take the necessary steps to prevent the spread of Ebola fever, which has killed more than 80 people in those countries, Al-Haybi told NNA news agency.

Senegal moves to prevent Ebola spread

Senegal's Minister of Health Awa Marie Coll-Seck has announced her plan to prevent the spread of Ebola into the country.

Measures include the setting-up of a 24-hour crisis centre and providing specialised medical clothing for workers at hospitals and airports.

The Senegalese government has already closed its borders with Guinea, where more than 70 people have been killed by the virus.

However, despite attempts to reassure the population, paranoia about the illness persists with some reluctant to shake hands and limiting contact with others.

He Who Hesitates is Lost: The Psychology of Survival

In a worst-case scenario, hesitation kills.

No one wants to accept that something horrible has happened. The human brain is configured in a way that it is in our very nature to deny that something outside our normal paradigm has occurred. This is called cognitive dissonance.

“Cognitive dissonance is the feeling of discomfort when simultaneously holding two or more conflicting cognitions: ideas, beliefs, values or emotional reactions…Dissonance is aroused when people are confronted with information that is inconsistent with their beliefs. If the dissonance is not reduced by changing one’s belief, the dissonance can result in restoring consonance through misperception, rejection or refutation of the information, seeking support from others who share the beliefs, and attempting to persuade others.” (source)

But in a crisis situation, denial can be deadly.

Ebola breaks out on a scale never seen before

Nearly 40 years after first striking fear with a painful, grotesque set of symptoms, the Ebola virus has now killed at least 88 people in the West African countries of Guinea and Liberia.

And the worry is: It could get a lot worse.

It is a terrifying virus, highly infectious, quick to kill, with no vaccine and no cure. Doctors in Guinea are dealing with the most aggressive strain. Only one out of ten victims survives.

China Rejects Another shipment of GMO Animal Feed trying to be slipped in. 601,000 tons rejected last year.

China is not accepting GMO corn/feed/food in any way. They rejected another shipment that tried to be slipped in for animal feed from the U.S.

Last year they rejected 601,000 tons of GMO corn. This shipment was 21,800 tons of corn from the U.S.

Why is it the U.S. is about the only country that allows GMO food? Why haven't our 'leaders' protected us as the leaders protect their citizens in other countries. The other countries even protect their animals. Yet the U.S. allows the poison of GMO corn and food and won't even require it to be labeled?

As the Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to spread, airport health checkpoints have been set up in Guinea, to help prevent the virus from spreading. There have already been two cases that were suspected to have left the country.

One Canadian man traveling from the area became infected and brought the virus home to Canada. When he was sick at a Canadian hospital, health officials insisted that there was nothing to be afraid of, and that his virus was not actually Ebola, but only an “Ebola-like” virus. However, the fact that this person was recently in an Ebola outbreak area is leaving many to wonder if this is a true Ebola case that is being downplayed by health officials.

10 Scientific Studies Proving GMOs Can Be Harmful To Human Health

by Arjun Walia

Over the past few years, a number of countries have completely banned GMOs and the pesticides that go along with them, and they are doing so for a reason.

The latest country to consider a complete ban is Russia after top government scientists recommended at least a 10-year ban.

The truth is, we don’t know enough about GMOs to deem them safe for human consumption. Believe it or not the very first commercial sale of them was only twenty years ago. There is no possible way that our health authorities can test all possible combinations on a large enough population, over a long enough period of time to be able to say with absolute certainty that they are harmless.

There are a multitude of credible scientific studies that clearly demonstrate why GMOs should not be consumed, and more are emerging every year. There are also a number of scientists all around the world who oppose them...

The Scientific Revolution: Bringing an Extinction Level Event Right To Your Door

I’m not quite old enough yet to spend my days considering how I, as an individual, will die. I have seen so many things in my former life in the hospital that it would be almost impossible to pick one as the most likely cause of my demise.

Increasingly I have considered that what finishes me off will most likely take a whole load of other people with me. A nuclear winter from Yellowstone popping off cutting the food supply, a pandemic like Ebola sweeping the globe, bad weather causing widespread famine or maybe a solar flare ending life as we know it. All of these things could, and possibly would be what I call an AELE…an Almost Extinction Level Event. I say almost because all of them would see some people surviving, and hopefully one of them would be me.

The last year or so though, my thoughts have drifted from an AELE, to a total ELE, an Extinction Level Event that actually kills off the entire human race.

There is already evidence that glyphosate is an endocrine disrupting chemical (see later), but the extent of the problem is far greater than it appears.

It has long been known that Monsanto’s formulation Roundup, the most widely used glyphosate herbicide, is far more damaging than glyphosate itself (reviewed in [5] Ban GMOs Now, ISIS special report).

Low fat foods contain an average 20% more sugar than full fat equivalents and can increase risk of weight gain and diabetes, health experts warn

‘Low fat’ foods contain 20 per cent more sugar on average than their full fat equivalents, a study has claimed.

Experts labelled some of the sugar levels found in an investigation as dangerous, adding that eating the ‘skinny’ version of certain products could lead to a higher risk of diabetes and weight gain.

Without fat, sugar is absorbed rapidly into the body giving you a large intake of energy which you may not actually need. If you're not an athlete who's burning it off, that's a bad idea.

‘The sugar will convert into fat and you'll also find you feel hungry again quicker and end up eating more. Continuously high sugar levels contribute to obesity and diabetes.’

Free Thinking Is Now Considered A Mental Illness

The Soviet Union used new mental illness for political repression.

People who didn’t accept the beliefs of the Communist Party developed a new type of schizophrenia.

They suffered from the delusion of believing communism was wrong. They were isolated, forcefully medicated, and put through repressive “therapy” to bring them back to sanity.

Now thanks to thought policing by the American Psychiatric Association the latest addition of the DSM-IV(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is setting up the dominoes for arbitrary diagnosis of any dissenting individuals.

Listed as new mental illnesses are above-average creativity and cynicism. The manual goes on to identify a mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.

Three million lower-income Americans have enrolled in the Medicaid program for the poor so far during the rollout of U.S. President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law, the administration announced on Friday.

That brings the number of people who have signed up for both public and private health coverage to 10 million since the October 1 launch of Affordable Care Act.

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration often touts that people with pre-existing conditions and countless others can now get covered under ObamaCare. But there's another group that's starting to benefit from the law -- prison inmates.

Cash-strapped state and local prisons increasingly are using the Affordable Care Act to pay for their inmates' medical costs, taking advantage of a little-known provision that lets them shift some of those expenses to the federal government.

Ohio, Illinois and Iowa are among the states trying to offload the rising costs of health care – which include mental health programs – by enrolling inmates into a new expanded Medicaid program when they get sick.

Manufacturing Madness: The Pseudoscience of Modern Psychiatry

Waking Times

Twenty-six years have passed since Prozac, the antidepressant drug, was introduced to the US market and quickly achieved the label of a “wonder drug.” In the decade that followed, other antidepressant drugs including paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), fluvoxamine (Luvox), and citalopram (Celexa) would be released, creating an entire class of medications known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Since hitting the shelves, the popularity of SSRIs has skyrocketed. Today, 1 in every 10 Americans reaches for antidepressants daily.[1] This ratio jumps to an incredible 25% among women between the ages of 40 and 59.[2] Approximately 5% of children ages 12 to 19 are also taking antidepressants.[3] Worldwide, mental illness is now the leading cause of disability among children.[4]

Barack Obama declared victory this week as the deadline to avoid the penalty for the individual mandate to carry health insurance passed on Monday. “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” the President insisted as he announced that 7.1 million people had enrolled in private insurance through Obamacare. “The debate over repealing this law is over.”

Consider that presidential wish casting in a midterm cycle in which Democrats will have to constantly defend their support for the unpopular law. As Jimmy Fallon pointed out later the same evening, the numbers were neither impressive nor reliable. “It’s amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory,” Fallon told his laughing audience, “fine people if they don’t do it — and keep extending the deadline for months.”

Koch ally to introduce Monsanto-backed bill to bar state GMO labeling laws

Rep. Mike Pompeo will introduce legislation backed by powerful trade groups to prevent states from passing laws requiring the labeling of genetically-modified foods, according to reports. The bill is linked to biotech giant Monsanto and Koch Industries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And thanks to the Supreme Court, Mike Pompeo will get oodles and oodles of campaign cash from Monsanto and the Koch brothers this next election cycle!

Ocean discovered on Enceladus may be best place to look for alien life

Researchers have discovered a deep saltwater ocean on one of the many small moons that orbit Saturn, leading scientists to conclude it is the most likely place in the solar system for extraterrestrial life to be found.

Gravitational field measurements taken by Nasa's Cassini space probe revealed that a 10km-deep ocean of water, larger than Lake Superior, lurks beneath the icy surface of Enceladus at the moon's south pole.

David Stevenson, a planetary scientist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said the body of water was so large it "may extend halfway or more towards the equator in every direction. It might even extend all the way to the north."

Fear and frustration as Guinea struggles to contain Ebola outbreak - Guardian

Late last month, villagers in Guinea's remote south-eastern region of Nzérékoré were greeted by a sight so alarming that many barricaded themselves indoors. A group of doctors dressed in protective suits and helmets were visiting the centre of an Ebola epidemic that has raged for six weeks.

"People were running away from the doctors who looked like cosmonauts on their way back from the moon. We have never seen anything like it. Some locked their doors, others hid themselves. It was frightening because there were all kinds of rumours about how this disease was spreading," said Bah Mamadou, a taxi driver.

FEMA videographer Kurt Sonnenfeld's WTC-911 video collection being released by Loose Change

According to the Facebook page for the film Loose Change
"We just found this guy's [Kurt Sonnenfeld] footage on an old hard drive. 580 minutes, almost 10 hours. Some say he killed his wife, some say it's an elaborate attempt to frame him because of what's in the footage. Should we put it online and let the public decide?"

And apparently the decision was made to upload it.

Loose Change: A 9/11 Truth Film: "It is now uploading, one clip at a time. No guarantees how exciting it will be, but as far as we know it's all of Kurt's footage unless he comes forward to state otherwise."

The process is still ongoing. The footage is being uploaded on Loose Change's youtube channel.

CPS Harrasses Mother For Legal Hemp Seed Oil Usage & Medical Cannabis Activism

Meet Renee Petro. She is the mother of Branden Petro, aka Branden The Brave, a young boy who suffers from FIRES, or Febrile Infection Related Epilepsy Syndrome. It is a form of epilepsy that takes place in kids 3-15 years old. Branden was eight when he got FIRES. The seizures caused by FIRES are destructive, and cause damage to various parts of the brain. As if that were not enough to deal with, Renee has had CPS called on her recently for giving her child 100% totally legal hemp seed oil, and being a vocal activist for medical cannabis here in Florida. She has not done anything wrong, yet this is the harassment she has to deal with. Still through all of this she is like a fierce lioness protecting her cubs that will not stop until she changes the law in order to save her son.

Tuna is the #3 cause of food poisoning in the United States, but not because of bacteria

The most common cause of seafood-related poisoning is called scombrotoxin, and the condition it causes is called scombroid poisoning.

Scombrotoxin is just concentrated histamine, the same chemical that the immune system produces in response to foreign attack. When the bodies of fish heat up past about 40 degrees Fahrenheit, scombrotoxin starts to build up. The human body reacts to eating scombrotoxin as it would to its own histamines, with loss of breath, flushing, headaches, cramps, diarrhea and loss of vision. In asthmatics, these symptoms can cause death.

Once produced, scombrotoxin cannot be destroyed, even by cooking. That means that if the fish you bought has been allowed to heat up any time between being caught and being cooked -- whether on the docks or just on your ride home -- you could be in for a nasty surprise.

Ebola Still Spreading: Death Toll Now 86 And Fourth Country Now Seeing Cases

86 people have now died in the current Ebola outbreak in Guinea. The disease has also been reported in Liberia and Sierra Leone, and now Mali is added to the list after three suspected cases were hospitalized. The government in Mali has reacted quickly and there are tight controls on people entering the capital city Bamako, which is the largest population centre in the country. They are using thermal imaging cameras which they hope will assist them in identifying people with a high temperature and/or fever.

The fact that it has crossed borders and made it to highly populated cities gives grave cause for concern.

Army Admits Fort Hood Shooter Was on Psychiatric Drugs

“Was he on any sort of medications….SSRI’s, anti-depressants, anything of that nature,” a reporter asked Milley, to which the General responded, “He was on medications that’s correct.”

In a subsequent report, officials also admitted that Lopez had been prescribed Ambien, a sleeping pill associated with accidents and aggressive outbursts.

34-year-old Lopez, who shot dead three colleagues and injured 16 others before turning the gun on himself, returned from Iraq suffering from “mental problems,” according to officials.

The obvious link between psychiatric drugs and violent outbursts is a common theme that crops up in almost every mass shooting incident, yet the media is routinely loathe to make the connection.

Cell Phone Industry Beats Public Health Concern in Maine

And an opportunity presents itself...

Kevin Samson

In a case study of political influence over science and a concern for public health, the following story stands near the top.

The dangers of Wi-Fi and the electromagnetic radiation emitted from cell phones and various "smart" devices are quickly becoming a non-debate to anyone who has investigated the reams of studies available.

For starters, please see "34 Scientific Studies Showing Adverse Health Effects From Wi-Fi," then have a look at "First Study on 4G/LTE Cell Phone Radiation Shows It Affects Brain Activity."

No doubt it was the type of information presented in these two articles alone that has led to pressure from concerned citizens in Maine.

Police cadets in New Mexico trained to have “warrior mentality” and to use more deadly force

The face of evil IMHO! This is why all the police murders of Americans by APD!

The director said he'd rather burn his curriculum than disclose it to the media. NEW MEXICO — All new police cadets will be trained to use more deadly force — not less — thanks to a new curriculum by director of the state’s Law Enforcement Academy. Cadets are being trained by the former Army Colonel to have a “warrior mentality” with a strong emphasis on “Officer Survival.” The cadet program, which has also been shortened by six full weeks, leaves cadets more paranoid and more prone to use deadly force, critics say.

Jack Jones, a retired Army colonel, was granted sole authority by the LEA over the training curriculum given to all of New Mexico’s new recruits. He says the old model was too restrictive with the use of deadly force.

“Evil has come to the state of New Mexico. Evil has come to the Southwest. Evil has come to the United States,” Jones said to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

The A-20B Boston bomber was sent to the Soviet Union by the US for their common fight against Nazi Germany under an allied wartime military equipment program, called Lend-Lease. The plane arrived via a secret route across the northwestern Pacific known as the Alaska-Siberia air road.

The plane crashed in May, 1943 just outside Krasnoyarsk. Its entire crew - Capt. Pyotr Stepanov, navigator Capt. Vasily Kravets, gunner and radio operator Sgt. Maj. Viktor Panov and technician Lt. Garif Shaikhutdinov - died in the crash.

NASA Breaks Most Contact With Russia

NASA said Wednesday that it was suspending most contacts with Russian space agency officials, underscoring just how rapidly the Russian-American relationship is deteriorating in the wake of the Kremlin’s annexation of Crimea and hinting at further ramifications that will go beyond previous rifts.

The one exception, NASA said, would involve operations of the International Space Station, the primary space collaboration between the two countries.

Otherwise, the extent of NASA’s break in relations is broad and includes “travel to Russia and visits by Russian government representatives to NASA facilities, bilateral meetings, email, and teleconferences or videoconferences,” Michael F. O’Brien, the agency’s associate administrator for international and interagency relations, wrote in an email to top NASA officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Michael O'Brien: what if Russia refuses to transport any more Americans to the ISS?!?

Mr, O'Brien, the US government has a real problem here: we can't get them up anymore.

NASA has absolutely no manned space vehicles with which to transport our astronauts into space, which is why we have to piggyback our personnel on Russian rockets.

President Obama is the first President since Eisenhower to be sitting on a space program with no manned vehicles capable of getting our people into space, which is a bloody disgrace.

This disengagement is petty, stupid, short-sighted, and vindictive, and it will come back to bite the US space program right in the backside.

Monsanto Pinned for Dumping Vile Smelling Toxic Waste Poisons at UK Town

The village of Groesfaen used to be a quaint, though prospering UK town near Wales, but the waters of a nearby quarry started turning bright orange, and a vile smell began emanating from the stream that flowed from the 36-foot deep quarry. After town residents and the owner of the quarry requested an investigation years ago, Monsanto was found to be illegally dumping cancerous PCBs, dioxins, and Agent Orange constituents from a plant in Barton Williams into the Groesfaen’s water supply.

MASS VIOLENCE LINKED TO PRESCRIPTION PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS - A RESOURCE PAGE

From SSRIstories above - List of school shootings known to be linked to SSRIs Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Colombine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold's medical records have never been made available to the public.

Jeff Weise, age 16, had been prescribed 60 mg/day of Prozac (three times the average starting dose for adults!) when he shot his grandfather, his grandfather's girlfriend and many fellow students at Red Lake, Minnesota. He then shot himself. 10 dead, 12 wounded.

Cory Baadsgaard, age 16, Wahluke (Washington state) High School, was on Paxil (which caused him to have hallucinations) when he took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. He has no memory of the event.

Chris Fetters, age 13, killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The original cover story of a Muslim Jihadi has collapsed and it is now being admitted that yesterday's shooting at Fort Hood involved an Iraq veteran being treated for depression.

No doubt the gun-grabbers are having orgasms over another case which proves that Americans, especially veterans, should not be trusted with guns.

But the fact is that most if not all of these recent mass shootings involve people wither on or withdrawing from prescription psychiatric medications, many of which now include warnings of possible violent and suicidal tendencies on the fine print of the box insert (but not the TV commercials).

Congress is holding hearings over a GM switch that killed 13 people, but when they held hearings about the thousands killed by these medications, they chose to do nothing at all.

Almost all these stories seem to be about how the latest protests here on Sunday, March 30, over the Albuquerque Police Department's latest killings got way out of hand, or turned into riots, and none of them seem to be at all interested in anything other than the official stories fed by official channels to the media.

Even though all of these events took place on the Ring of Fire, which is the most seismically-active area of the entire planet, the “experts” promise us that “the odds are overwhelming” that they are not related to one another. So do you believe them? A few days ago, I wrote an article entitled “12 Signs That Something Big Is Happening To The Earth’s Crust Under North And South America“. This was before the earthquakes that struck off the coasts of Chile and Panama. It appeared to me, as a “non-expert”, that seismic activity was really starting to heat up in North and South America – especially along the Ring of Fire.

‘Spaceballs’ Called It: Chinese Residents Line Up to Breathe Fresh Air from Bags

Breathing fresh air is becoming a luxury in some places...

China currently ranks as the most polluted country on the planet. The scale of China’s notoriously polluted cities has reached such proportions that marketers are now using imported fresh air as a luxury commodity, as well as a stunt to drive tourism to less smoggy areas.

The brunt of all this was predicted in Mel Brooks’ more hilarious-than-it-was-prescient Star Wars-spoof Spaceballs (dating back to 1987). The film’s plot was based around a scheme by the Planet Spaceball empire to steal fresh air from Plant Druidia. One of the gags portrayed the president of Spaceball (played by Mel Brooks) sniffing premium fresh air out of a “Perri-Air” can in his spare time.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been conducting dangerous experiments on humans over the past few years in order to justify more onerous clean air regulations.

The agency conducted tests on people with health issues and the elderly, exposing them to high levels of potentially lethal pollutants, without disclosing the risks of cancer and death, according to a newly released government report.

These experiments exposed people, including those with asthma and heart problems, to dangerously high levels of toxic pollutants, including diesel fumes, reads a EPA inspector general report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The EPA also exposed people with health issues to levels of pollutants up to 50 times greater than the agency says is safe for humans.
