You become what you eat!

Diets high in cheeseburgers and fries and low in whole grains and veggies account for over 80,000 cancer cases a year.

We now know without a shadow of a doubt that eating highly processed foods lacking in nutrition is not just bad for our waistlines, but for our cancer risks. There’s a clear link between excess body weight and at least six kinds of cancer, and probable links to at least seven others. Continue reading

California couple who developed the same cancer after using Roundup weed killer on their property for 30 years are awarded $2 BILLION in Monsanto trial

Oh My God – this gives me a Headache!

Monsanto must pay $2 billion to a California couple who claim carcinogenic chemicals in the company’s weedkiller, Roundup, gave them cancer, a jury ruled Monday.

The company faces a slew of over 13,4000 lawsuits over the product, which uses glysophate, a pest-killing chemical that may raise cancer risks – a risk that three courts in a row have now ruled the company failed to warn consumers of. Continue reading

The ADHD Overdiagnosis Epidemic Is a Schooling Problem, Not a Child One

Today, children are being diagnosed with, and often medicated for, ADHD at an astonishing rate.

Childhood exuberance is now a liability. Behaviors that were once accepted as normal, even if mildly irritating to adults, are increasingly viewed as unacceptable and cause for medical intervention. High energy, lack of impulse control, inability to sit still and listen, lack of organizational skills, fidgeting, talking incessantly—these typical childhood qualities were widely tolerated until relatively recently. Today, children with these characteristics are being diagnosed with, and often medicated for, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) at an astonishing rate. Continue reading

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. ~ “Many of the things I’m going to say today would be slanderous if they weren’t true. And, if they are not true, then Merck should sue me. But Merck won’t do that. And they won’t do that because in the United States, truth is an absolute defense against slander.”

Flu vaccine contains 25,000 times more mercury than is legally allowed in drinking water

In case you missed it, recent lab tests conducted at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab found that seasonal flu vaccines, which are pushed on virtually everyone these days, including young babies, pregnant women and the elderly, contain outrageously high levels of neurotoxic mercury. Vials of batch flu vaccine produced by British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) were found to contain upwards of 51 parts per million of mercury, or 25,000 times the legal maximum for drinking water established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Where opioids are dished out for minor injuries

Your chances of being prescribed opioids for a minor injury like an ankle sprain could vary widely depending on where you live, a new study has found

Researchers say that patients seeking medical care were on average three times more likely to be given opioids in ‘high-prescribing states’ like Georgia and Nebraska than in ‘low-prescribing states’ like West Virginia and Michigan.

The variation increased to 10 times more likely between Arkansas, where the most amount of patients were given opioids, and North Dakota, where the least amount were. Continue reading

Cancer researchers don’t want a ‘cure’, they would lose billions

The war on cancer began nearly half a century ago, and yet, not much has really changed. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent on cancer research and development, so you’d think by now they’d have come up with better, more effective treatments, wouldn’t you? Look at the immense developments that have been made in other forms of technology — and in less time! Smart phones, anyone? Continue reading

Cancer immunotherapy drugs, which spur the body’s own immune system to attack tumors, hold great promise but still fail many patients. New Research may help explain why some cancers elude the new class of therapies, and offer some clues to a solution.

The study, published in the journal Cell, focuses on colorectal and prostate cancer. These are among the cancers that seem largely impervious to a key mechanism of immunotherapy drugs. Continue reading

Oh, you’re just blowing smoke up my ass,” is something you might hear someone say when they think you’re just telling them what they want to hear. But in 18th-century England, blowing smoke up one’s ass was an actual medical procedure, and no, we aren’t kidding.

According to Gizmodo, one of the earliest reports of such a practice took place in England in 1746, when a woman was left unconscious after nearly drowning. Continue reading

60 Lab Studies Confirm Cancer Link to a Vaccine You Probably Had as a Child

 

Dr. Maurice Hilleman made astounding revelations in an interview that was cut from The Health Century — the admission that Merck drug company vaccines had been injecting dangerous viruses into people worldwide.

Bear in mind that Dr. Hilleman was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program. He developed over three dozen vaccines, more than any other scientist in history. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. He received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. Hilleman was one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines. Continue reading
