Is the Big One Coming? FEMA Increases Earthquake Preparedness Activities

Is the Big One Coming? FEMA Increases Earthquake Preparedness Activities
san-andreas

By Daisy Luther

It’s no secret that the West Coast is waiting for The Big One. From fictionalized versions like the movie San Andreas (which, although full of dramatic special effects and creative license, still had a few things to teach us) to unsettling novels like Cascadia, which is all the more alarming for its scientific accuracy, everyone is imagining that the worst could be headed the way of Washington, Oregon, and California.

There is a basis in reality for this. Some scientists predict the Cascadia Fault could erupt with the biggest earthquake in recorded history. Others feel that the San Andreas Fault will be the one to go first.

The earthquake worries are official.

And this summer, the government has gotten involved. We all know that once they actually warn the public, an event is usually nigh.

Between June 7 and June 10th FEMA ran an exercise called Cascadia Rising to test their response to a mega-quake and/or tsunami hitting the US West Coast. From the FEMA website:

June 7-10, 2016 Emergency Operations and Coordination Centers (EOC/ECCs) at all levels of government and the private sector will activate to conduct a simulated field response operation within their jurisdictions and with neighboring communities, state EOCs, FEMA, and major military commands.

Conducting successful life-saving and life-sustaining response operations in the aftermath of a Cascadia Subduction Zone disaster will hinge on the effective coordination and integration of governments at all levels – cities, counties, state agencies, federal officials, the military, tribal nations – as well as non-government organizations and the private sector. One of the primary goals of Cascadia Rising is to train and test this whole community approach to complex disaster operations together as a joint team.

Recent subduction zone earthquakes around the world underscore the catastrophic impacts we will face when the next CSZ earthquake and tsunami occurs in our region:

Indonesia (2004): M9.1 — 228,000 fatalities
Chile (2010): M8.8 — 500 fatalities
Japan (2011): M9.0 — 18,000 fatalities

The Cascadia Subduction Zone off the coast of North America spans from northern California to southern British Columbia. This subduction zone can produce earthquakes as large as magnitude 9 and corresponding tsunamis. Scientific evidence indicates that a magnitude 8.0-9.0 earthquake occurs along the 800-mile long fault on average once every 200 to 500 years. The last major earthquake and tsunami along the fault occurred over 300 years ago in 1700.

In addition to the Cascadia Fault, the West Coast has to deal with anything the San Andreas Fault throws at it. There is a major difference between the two: The Cascadia is a silent fault. It doesn’t slip and tremble giving off small earthquakes as the San Andreas does. When it goes it goes in one fell swoop, ‘unzipping’ along either part or all of its length and unleashing a mega-quake.

And don’t forget the New Madrid Fault.

In October a massive drill called ‘The Great ShakeOut‘ will take place across in earthquake zones across the country including the Mid-West – home of the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The New Madrid Fault runs from The New Madrid Fault runs for more than 130 miles, from Cairo Illinois to Marked Tree in Arkansas with the upper end of it lying beneath the Mississippi Delta, an area peppered with 15 nuclear power stations.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) recorded the September 3 earthquake in Oklahoma as the largest the state has experienced and that the earthquakes in the area are increasing in frequency.

There are major concerns that the New Madrid Fault is building up to a major earthquake. It has happened before.

In 1811-1812 the New Madrid fault gave rise to three large earthquakes all of which were followed by incredibly strong aftershocks. From USGS:

A Sequence of Three Main Shocks in 1811-1812
This sequence of three very large earthquakes is usually referred to as the New Madrid earthquakes, after the Missouri town that was the largest settlement on the Mississippi River between St. Louis, Missouri and Natchez, Mississippi. On the basis of the large area of damage (600,000 square kilometers), the widespread area of perceptibility (5,000,000 square kilometers), and the complex physiographic changes that occurred, the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812 rank as some of the largest in the United States since its settlement by Europeans. They were by far the largest east of the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. and Canada. The area of strong shaking associated with these shocks is two to three times as large as that of the 1964 Alaska earthquake and 10 times as large as that of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. (My emphasis)

Back in the 1800’s the area was sparsely populated…but not so now. Millions of people live in the zone and would be directly impacted by a major quake caused by the New Madrid Fault.

So why would FEMA need to have such a major drill in June when the countrywide Great ShakeOut drill was planned for October anyway?

Maybe because the Cascadia Fault rupturing would be the biggest disaster the United States has ever faced. Oregon State University researcher Chris Goldfinger has collected dozens of core samples from along the zone. He says these cores show evidence of 19 quakes of magnitude 9 or greater that ripped the entire length of the subduction zone in the past 10,000 years. An average of one mega-thrust quake every 526 years. The last one happened in 1700. The problem is the whole fault doesn’t have to slip to cause a massive earthquake and the same core samples show evidence that the southern end of the fault slips more often, on average every 250 years. The last time was 1700 – 316 years ago.

Maybe the final words should be from Gov. Jay Inslee:

When the megaquake hits, “hundreds of thousands of people will have to wait days, weeks and months for their electricity to be restored,” Inslee said in a news conference to kick off Cascadia Rising.

“They will have to wait a considerable period of time to have water service to their homes,” he added. “So having a basic emergency kit in homes, in cars, in offices, is absolutely essential for everybody who lives in our great state.” (source)

At the very least, you should have on hand emergency food, supplies for a power outage, drinking water, and alternative sanitation. If FEMA is actively urging people to prepare, an event could be coming sooner than we think.

High cost of burials forcing American families to donate their dead relatives to medical schools

High cost of burials forcing American families to donate their dead relatives to medical schools

Family-Members-Sad-Funeral-Death

by: Daniel Barker

(NaturalNews) Americans are donating their bodies to medical schools in record numbers due to the skyrocketing cost of traditional burials, according to a recent Associated Press story featured by Breitbart.

The average cost of a traditional funeral and burial in the United States ranges between $8,000 and $10,000, including the ceremony, casket and headstone.

Many Americans these days simply cannot afford such an amount, so more and more of the less affluent are choosing to donate their bodies to science – a practice that was once unthinkable for a large portion of the population.

Several medical schools are reporting a marked increase in the number of donations, which are welcomed by researchers and students who use the cadavers for anatomy class dissections, surgical practice or testing of new technologies and procedures.

From Breitbart:

“The University of Minnesota said it received more than 550 cadavers last year, up from 170 in 2002. The University at Buffalo got almost 600 last year, a doubling over the past decade. Others that reported increases include Duke University, the University of Arizona and state agencies in Maryland and Virginia. ScienceCare, a national tissue bank, now receives 5,000 cadavers a year, twice as many as in 2010.”

According to the National Funeral Directors Association, the cost of traditional burials has increased by nearly 30 percent in the last decade. When a person donates his or her body, the medical schools cremate the unused remains and often return the ashes to the family at no charge.

Donating one’s body to science is no longer ‘taboo’

Changes in cultural and religious attitudes are partly responsible for the surge in donations, along with the concerns regarding the exorbitant expense of traditional burials, according to specialists in the field.

Such donations are no longer taboo, it seems. “Now we have thousands of registered donors,” said Mark Zavoyna, manager of Georgetown University’s body donation program.

Although animals and artificial cadavers are useful to a certain extent for teaching and research, nothing can replace the “real thing” for medical students, according to Duke University surgery professor Dr. Michael Zenn, “because ultimately these people are going to be taking care of patients.”

“It’s just a priceless donation,” said Zenn.

Cadaver shortages still a problem in some areas

Although many medical schools are benefiting from the increase in donations, some are still facing a shortage. In some states, such as Illinois, the number of donated cadavers has actually decreased in the past few decades.

The Anatomical Gift Association of Illinois has begun purchasing newspaper ads, while many other such programs still avoid resorting to advertising.

However, a recent video produced by Donate Life – a non-profit alliance “committed to increasing the number of donated organs, eyes and tissue available for transplant” – has gone viral on the web, and may serve to increase the number of organ donors.

In the video, a fictional “assh**e” named Coleman Sweeney is seen going about his typical daily routine – which includes the insulting and harassment of neighbors, strangers and children – before the character suddenly drops dead of a brain aneurysm.

It is then revealed that, despite being the “world’s biggest assh**e,” Sweeney is actually an organ donor, thereby redeeming his atrocious behavior while alive.

The clever, humorous and somewhat poignant video (posted below) is likely to be effective in at least making people think about organ donations in a new light.

(Warning: Video contains strong language and content inappropriate for children)




Whether it’s an act of compassion, self-redemption or financial desperation, the donation of one’s body to science is a gift to the living – but of course for many the concept is still a difficult one to accept.

However, if you have no personal or religious objections, or would simply like to save your surviving family members the cost of an expensive traditional burial, it may be an idea worth considering.

After Dr. Drew Turned Whistleblower On Hillary Clinton’s Failing Health The Censorship Starts

Dr. Drew turns whistleblower on Hillary Clinton’s failing health

Hillary Clinton

 

by: Julie Wilson

(NaturalNews) Board-certified internist, addiction medicine specialist and TV personality, Dr. Drew Pinsky, recently made headlines after commenting on the declining health of Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, and the inadequate medical care she appears to be receiving.

After being asked to appear on a radio show in California to “debunk questions” about the candidate’s health, Pinsky surprised listeners by saying he is “gravely concerned” about Clinton’s physical well-being.

The doctor, known for his role as an addiction therapist on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab, said that after reviewing Clinton’s public health records, he grew concerned about the type of medical care she is receiving, describing it as antiquated, particularly for an elitist with strong political influence.

Hillary Clinton treated with medicine from another era

Pinsky and his colleague agreed that Clinton should be receiving a higher standard of care after learning that the candidate is being prescribed medicine that was popular in the 1960s.

“Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care she was receiving, we would be ashamed to show up in a doctors’ lounge. We would be laughed out. She’s receiving sort of 1950s-level care by our evaluation,” Pinsky stated on KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning show.

“Pinsky said Clinton has received unconventional treatments over the years, calling the medical decisions ‘bizarre’ and speculating that it could be causing uncommon side effects,” Fox News is reporting.

Certain of Clinton’s health records that have been made public reveal that she had two episodes of deep venus thrombosis, a blood clot usually occurring in the legs, as well as that she has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, a condition common in women over the age of 60.

The records show that Clinton was treated for the blood clots with an anticoagulant that’s rarely used anymore, said Pinsky, adding that a woman of her caliber should have been prescribed a newer drug.

Poor medical care could be contributing to Clinton’s deteriorating health, says Pinsky

Clinton reportedly suffered “transverse sinus thrombosis,” a condition that Pinsky calls “exceedingly rare,” after falling and hitting her head in 2012. The TV personality says the poor treatment Clinton received previously may have contributed to issues with her “coagulation system.”

“So the very medicine doctors are using may be causing this problem and they’re using an old fashioned medicine to treat it – what is going on with her health care? Maybe they have reasons, but at a distance, it looks bizarre,” noted Pinsky.

So far, the Clinton campaign has dismissed theories that the presidential candidate is in poor health, calling them nothing more than “right-wing conspiracies.” However, recent footage of Clinton requiring the help of three men to assist her up a small set of stairs suggest otherwise.

Footage of Clinton struggling up a small set of stairs goes viral

The photos, captured in February of this year, show the 68-year-old Clinton struggling to make it up the stairs, which Breitbart theorizes is due to “her fragile body or perhaps because [of] her well-documented brain injuries.”

The conservative news publication reported in January that Clinton had suddenly disappeared from the debate stage, leaving some to speculate whether the presidential candidate had simply been on a bathroom break.

However, “a law-enforcement source with inside connections is alleging that Clinton was missing from the stage due to health issues stemming from a previous brain injury.

“These long-lasting symptoms stemming from a concussion and blood clot, according to a neurologist, suggest Clinton is suffering from post-concussion syndrome, which can severely impact her cognitive abilities,” Breitbart reported.

Still, the Clinton campaign insists the candidate is in good health, and perfectly fit to serve as president of the United States.

Scary Death Food: As Long As You Buy, Big Food Doesn’t Care If You Live Or Die

As Long As You Buy, Big Food Doesn’t Care If You Live Or Die

You know those ads and commercials that show how much the food industry cares about your well being? The ones where happy and healthy families are laughing and having a good time while consuming generous quantities of the company’s latest junk? Pure propaganda. We know it, and yet we still devour. Why? Because they’ve got us hooked! They know, as with any junkie, we can’t resist getting our preferred fix.

The agriculture, dairy, food processing and retail industries only care about squeezing out every penny of profit – at the expense of the public’s physical, emotional and spiritual health. Your health and happiness are of no concern, despite all those feel-good images of vibrant consumers.

The public makes two incorrect assumptions regarding Big Food. The first has to do with contamination. We see warnings in the press about mercury in tuna, wood pulp in Parmesan cheese, ground beef treated with ammonia to retard E. coli. These are examples of how some of the dangerous and deceptive practices of Big Food are exposed. The public assumes that corrective measures will be taken once an issue is uncovered – and that’s just fine with Big Food. Truth is, too often nothing changes. That means an uninformed customer is their best customer.

Another incorrect assumption is that the US Department of Agriculture exists to protect the consumer. But in fact, the original role of the USDA was to promote the products of the animal agriculture industry. For example: over fifty years ago, the USDA began promoting the so-called four basic food groups, with meat and dairy products in the number one and two spots on the list. Financed by the meat and dairy industry and backed by nutritional scientists on the payroll of the meat and dairy industry, this promotion ignored real science.

Then there’s the issue with food manufacturers who make extravagant claims about supporting healthy eating, while in truth, they conspire against it. Here’s where the treachery becomes criminal. Like the tobacco cartel, food makers have found ways to fill their products with ingredients (sugar, sugar substitutes, synthetic fats) that increase the desire to consume. There is now scientific proof that sugar has a greater addictive effect on brain chemistry than cocaine.

Some producers even go so far as to package many concoctions in the guise of health food. They may less harmful, but in most cases are far from healthy. It may not be as blatant as when I was growing up and Wonder Bread claimed to “Build strong bodies 12 ways”, but it is an effective marketing strategy.

The bad news: the food industry has incrementally taken over our brains, both figuratively and literally.

The good news: the damage can be reversed.

We can reclaim the brain and learn to make nutritional decisions based on what is truly best for our health, rather than the influence of propaganda or brain chemistry.

Does Grandma Hillary Clinton Wear Adult Diapers? Does Hillary Clinton Have Cognitive Impairment?

Clinton short-circuits? Ray Heard: “Hillary’s health, physical and maybe even mental, is questionable”

By BRIAN LILLEY

Yet another headline in right-leaning media suggests that Hillary Clinton’s health may be questionable but it’s difficult to find any discussion about this very important question in the main-stream media.

As always, political insider and veteran journalist Ray Heard has some very strong opinions on the subject.

Watch as I discuss the question of whether or not the media is suppressing vital information about the state of Hillary Clinton’s fitness, both physical and mental, for the office of the Presidency.

 


Girlfriend Of Bill Clinton Tells All – Hillary Has Cognitive Impairment

Hillary Clinton’s health in rapid collapse… voters in shock after photos show her unable to walk up small flight of stairs

by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) For at least the last five years, scary signs of Hillary Clinton’s plummeting health have continued to emerge. From her bizarre in-speech “blackouts” to her repeated monstrous coughing fits and her seizure-like bobble head behavior, many people have legitimately wondered whether Hillary Clinton is in the midst of a neurological or cognitive collapse.

Now, adding to the nationwide concerns about the health of this extraordinary woman who has the remarkable courage to wear a bright green Heaven’s Gate cult wardrobe long coat in public, photos have emerged showing Hillary Clinton unable to walk up a flight of stairs without being buttressed by strong-armed men.

This took place just days after President Obama called Donald Trump “unfit” to serve as President. Yet when it comes to questions of fitness to serve, UStaxpayer.org posted this photo summary that says it all:

Literally Unfit For the Presidency! Can’t Walk, Needs Assistance, Can’t Think, Often Confused, Can’t See, Has Double Vision, Wears Long Coats to Hide Her Adult Diapers, Has Multiple Seizures On Camera, Left in Middle of Debate For Unexplained Reason, Called Donald Trump Her Husband, Massive Coughing Fits During Speeches…


Other signs that Hillary Clinton’s cognitive function appears to be collapsing include:

• Her stunning inability to speak in public unless her entire speech is scripted in advance and all questions from the audience are 100% scripted and approved. (Hillary can’t handle the “stress” of an unknown question… even though Donald Trump fields them all day long.)

• Her extreme fear of debating any other political candidate in a live forum, including Bernie Sanders.

• Her tendency to totally FREAK OUT other reporters in her presence, who are visibly horrified at Hillary’s bizarre seizure-like activity:


• Her bizarre, inexplicable barking like a dog and bobblehead microseizures, caught on camera in this video:


• Strange lesions on her tongue, blood clots on her brain, neurological issues and more:

 

Entire leftist media working desperately to make Hillary Clinton appear to be coherent and energetic

Every Natural News reader knows by now that the entire mainstream media is nothing but FAKE media pretending to be real. Part of the massive election theater they are carrying out involves desperate efforts to hide Hillary Clinton’s bizarre disorders and behaviors from the public.

In fact, the entire media is hiding everything about the Clintons, deliberately refusing to ask any real questions about Bill Clinton’s rapes and sexual abuse of women, the criminal racketeering operations of the Clinton Family Foundation, nor the ever-increasing number of now-dead people who used to work for the Clintons or the DNC. None of these stories earn a single minute of news coverage from the news networks, all of which are 100% in the pocket of the Clinton criminal cartel.

At the same time these news organizations are deliberately hiding the truth about Hillary Clinton’s disastrous health collapse, criminal racketeering behavior and sexual predator husband Bill, they are pushing history’s most fallacious smear campaign against Donald Trump. Every word he utters is twisted, quoted out of context, lied about or condemned by hypersensitive “faux victims” who hate everything America stands for (and can’t the thought of making America great again).

That’s why we’re only finding out about Hillary Clinton’s health implosion through the independent, alternative media. The entire mainstream media won’t dare show Hillary Clinton falling up the stairs, having seizures in public or even attempting to debate another candidate in a live forum.

Unhinged… shrill… short-circuited… this is the person Obama says is “fit” to be President?

Behind the scenes, Hillary Clinton repeatedly displays irrational hostility and anger escalation, yet the entire rigged DNC and leftist media says that Hillary is intelligent, level-headed, compassionate, honest and ethical.

The problem is that nobody believes the media anymore. As more and more truth keeps coming out about Hillary’s State Department scandals (looting millions from Haiti disaster victims, selling out the U.S. uranium supply to the Russians, and so on), any real support for Hillary has all but evaporated.

It’s so bad now that CNN has to stage fake crowds in support of Hillarybecause no real crowds can ever be found. (All the real people on the left are Bernie supporters, and all the real people on the right are Trump supporters, it seems.)

Even the polls are systematically faked as Reuters recently admitted. They’re mathematically tweaked to make sure Hillary always has a 10 – 15 point boost, even when the real-world popular support for Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders is overwhelming. (In truth, Donald Trump currently enjoys landslide support across America. If the election were held today, he would win by a huge margin.)

After she loses the election, you can find her working at Helga’s House of Horrors

It’s sad but true: Hillary Clinton is an unlikable, scary and repulsive human being that nobody on the planet enjoys being near. No one likes her. Most of her political support actually comes from people who are terrified of being “suicided” by the Clintons. See this recent death of an attorney and this case of a Sanders supporter found dead after he tried to expose DNC fraud against Bernie Sanders.

Setting aside the fringe theories of Hillary Clinton being demonically possessed or a mind controlled biological robot, she dresses like a cult leader and speaks like a medieval dungeon torture maiden. Her most fitting place is not in the White House but rather Helga’s House of Horrors where curious, naive tourists might pay five dollars to witness the bizarre neurological freak show that Hillary Clinton has become.

And even if Hillary isn’t losing her mind, her intact brain is even more frightening due to its criminal, despotic tendencies. If Monsanto’s crackpot scientists somehow manage to keep Hillary Clinton’s brain alive in a jar full of genetically modified brain cell jelly, her continues cognitive existence would pose such a threat to humanity that we’d have to lock the jar away in a remote cave somewhere just to be sure no future civilization ever discovered it and powered it back on, accidentally unleashing the demons of Hellery.

Hillary Clinton is the single greatest argument against immortality technology. Can you imagine the horrific fate of humanity if this anti-human monster were able to live forever? The only real reprieve we all have for the future of the human race is knowing that one day Hillary Clinton’s life will pass away just like everybody else’s. For even if a powerful political person spends a lifetime lying, murdering, deceiving and destroying, the global elite still haven’t figured out how to NOT DIE from old age.

And in that realization, we may take comfort and a measure of certainty in knowing that our world will one day be free from the curse of Hillary Clinton and all the pain, suffering, death and destruction she has deliberately carried out against humanity. Until that day comes, we must keep this demented psycho-witch out of the White House and make sure she can’t bring harm to anyone else.

Parabiosis Vampires: Wizards And Some Billionaires Use Young Children’s Blood To Live Longer

Peter Thiel (Ken Yeung/Flickr)

The elite’s use young children’s blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

By

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.

In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats were cut open and their circulatory systems restructured and manipulated. Recently, some companies have been advancing human trials with parabiosis. Bercovici wrote that U.S. studies in the field are currently lagging behind trials in China and Korea.

A California company called Ambrosia is conducting human trials in which healthy people aged 35 or older receive transfusions of blood plasma from people under 25. Participants pay $8,000 to take part and their health is closely monitored for the two years they receive the transfusions. Participants must live in or have the means to travel to Monterey, CA.

Ambrosia’s founder Jesse Karmazin told Bercovici that participants experience a reversal of ageing systems across every major organ system. Furthermore, the results appear to be long-lasting, he said, if not permanent.

“The effects seem to be almost permanent,” Karmazin said. “It’s almost like there’s a resetting of gene expression.”

Jason Camm — chief medical officer at Thiel Capital — reached out to Karmazin, saying that the company is interested in his studies. Camm is listed on his LinkedIn page as, “Personal Health Director to Peter Thiel … and a number of other prominent Silicon Valley business leaders and investors.”

In an interview last year, Thiel told Bercovici that our culture is “a little too biassed against all these things” that purportedly prolong life. When the reporter asked Thiel if he was looking at parabiosis as a business opportunity or a personal medical decision, Thiel said the latter. The practice, he said, isn’t necessarily patentable, which compromises its potential money-making value.

However, he said, the FDA needn’t get involved or study the practice because “it’s just blood transfusions.”

There are rumours that some wealthy individuals in Silicon Valley are doing courses of parabiosis, but Thiel said last year that he hadn’t “quite, quite, quite started yet.” A spokesman for Thiel capital said that nothing has changed since then.

Gawker reported that it received a tip claiming Thiel “spends $40,000 per quarter to get an infusion of blood from an 18-year-old based on research conducted at Stanford on extending the lives of mice.”

Thiel is locked in a grudge match with Gawker after the website outed him as gay in 2007. Resenting the intrusion into his private life, Thiel quietly funded a multimillion dollar lawsuit against the website by pro wrestler Hulk Hogan.

The lawsuit was successful and Gawker is now struggling against bankruptcy and is due to go up for auction later this summer. On Monday, Gawker editor in chief Nick Denton filed for personal bankruptcy after a Florida court refused to grant him an emergency stay on the verdict. Source

The Bloody Passovers of Dr Toaff By Israel Shamir this Trento crime was not an exception: Toaff discovered many cases of such bloody sacrifices connected with the mutilation of children, outpouring of blood and its baking in Matzo (unleavened bread) spanning five hundred years of European history. Blood, this magic drink, was a popular medicine of the time, and of any time: Herod tried to keep young bathing in the blood of babies, alchemists used blood to turn lead into gold. Jewish wizards meddled in magic and used it as much as anybody.

There was a thriving market in such delicacies as blood, a powder made of blood and bloody matzo. Jewish vendors sold it accompanied with rabbinic letters of authorization; the highest value was the blood of a goy katana, a gentile child, much more usual was the blood of circumcision. Such blood sacrifices were “instinctive, visceral, virulent actions and reactions, in which innocent and unknowing children became victims of the love of God and of vengeance,” Toaff wrote in the book’s preface. “Their blood bathed the altars of a God who, it was believed, needed to be guided, sometimes impatiently pushed to protect and to punish.”

Hell No Big Pharma! Americans Now Spending BILLIONS On Natural Health Remedies

Americans now spending BILLIONS on natural health remedies including superfoods and homeopathy, while denouncing Big Pharma’s failed medicine

Homeopathy-Herbs-Spices

by: Isabelle Z.

(NaturalNews) As more and more Americans are starting to realize that conventional medicine does not hold the answers to their problems, their spending on natural health remedies is rising. In fact, a study that was recently released by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) shows that Americans spend $30.2 billion on complementary health approaches each year. When you consider the fact that they spend $328.8 billion on out-of-pocket health expenditures overall, the significant portion of health-related spending occupied by alternative remedies becomes quite clear.

The study used data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey, which was then weighted to come up with estimates that more accurately represent the nation’s population at large.

According to the researchers, one out of every five Americans over the age of 4 spent money on at least one complementary health approach. Some of the treatments that fall under this category include tai chi, massage therapy, homeopathic treatment, energy healing therapy, chiropractic manipulation and hypnosis.

Natural product supplements like fish oil, probiotics and digestive enzymes were more popular than visits to alternative health practitioners. This type of expense is not typically covered by health insurance, which means that families who have higher incomes tend to use them more often than those in lower income brackets.

Another interesting finding was that the $12.8 billion spent on natural product supplements alone in 2012 is equal to about a quarter of the amount of money spent on prescription drug use that year, which was $54 billion.

Complementary healthcare users aged four and older spent $510 per year on average on these approaches.

‘People are fed up’

The National Products Association’s Executive Director, Daniel Fabricant, who also happens to be a former FDA Director of Dietary Supplement Programs, said:

“People are fed up with the type of care they get from primary physicians that is covered by insurance. Across the board, people are looking for ways to stay healthy on their own.”

He pointed out that the average doctor sees 40 patients a day, spending just seven minutes with each one on average. This means that people don’t feel engaged with their doctors, and are taking matters into their own hands.

Big Pharma losing ground

Another factor at play here is people’s growing disillusionment with the deceitful practices of Big Pharma, whose overpriced medications often do little to cure problems, and can leave people in worse shape than when they started, thanks to their many side effects. Pharmaceutical firms are also known to engage in deceptive research tactics, and people are now seeing for themselves how many of their “solutions” send people into a cycle of dependency without really curing anything.

According to The Economist, Americans spend a whopping 20.9 percent of their total household expenditures on health costs, far exceeding other countries. As more people realize that Big Pharma profits from people being sick, they are turning to alternative options.

This sea-change in attitude can also be evidenced by consumers’ increasing preference for organic produce. The world’s second-largest retailer, Costco, announced this year that organic sales had jumped 72 percent since 2008, with its organics sales totaling $4 billion last year.

The message is clear: Americans are fed up with Big Pharma. They are tired of the lies. People don’t want to load their bodies up with the dangerous chemicals found in medications. They don’t want their fruits and vegetables to be laced with pesticides. And their spending habits are starting to back this up. One can only hope this trend will continue, with natural health spending eventually outstripping that of conventional medicine.

Scary Foods: 7 Cancer Causing Foods You Should Stop Eating

7 Cancer Causing Foods You Should Stop Eating

doughnuts-1209614_960_720

By bullseye

According to the World Health Organization, cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide. Around a third of cancer deaths are caused by five key lifestyle risks: alcohol use, tobacco use, lack of physical activity, high body mass index, and low fruit and vegetable intake. In addition, the Preventable Cancer Foundation says only five percent of cancers are hereditary, so lifestyle choices have an enormous impact on overall cancer risk.

All of this is good news. It means you have far more control over your chances of getting cancer than you might think. And while making sure you have an adequate intake of things like fruits and vegetables, there are also foods you should avoid to decrease your risk of developing cancer.

There have been countless studies attempting to link certain foods to an increased or decreased risk of cancer. Cancer.net says the connection between a specific food and cancer can be difficult to establish because there can be complicating factors, such as interactions between the different foods and drinks people consume, and how a food is prepared may influence its risk or benefits.

However, there are some foods you should steer clear of, just to be on the safe side.

 

1. Processed Meat

Processed meats include hot dogs, luncheon meats, bacon, sausages, and other meats that are cured, salted, smoked or preserved in some way (i.e. meats that aren’t sold ‘fresh’).

There is very strong evidence that processed meats are carcinogenic, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and the consumption of processed meat is known to cause colorectal cancer – the higher the consumption, the higher the risk.

The mechanisms by which processed meat causes cancer is not yet understood, but may be related to N-nitroso compounds produced when heme (from hemoglobin) in the meat is broken down and generated by nitrate preservatives. N-nitroso compounds have been shown to damage cells that line the bowel.

2. Refined Sugar/Sodas

Too much refined sugar causes a range of responses in the body that may indirectly increase the risk of cancer.

Sugar causes insulin spikes, which may lead to increased fat storage, and excess body fat increases your risk of several different cancers, according to the American Cancer Society. Being overweight or obese is also a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, which has been associated with breast, colon, and pancreatic cancers. In addition, the American Diabetes Association says regular consumption of sugary drinks has been linked to type 2 diabetes.

A study on mice models, published in Cancer Research earlier this year, has shown dietary sugar intake has a direct impact on breast cancer development and metastasis.

 

3. GMOs

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have been at the center of food safety debates for years, and of the most controversial are the ‘Round Up Ready’ crops. These crops have been engineered to withstand large doses of glyphosate (the key ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup), which means when you ingest food from a Roundup Ready crop, you’ll likely be getting a dose of the Roundup it’s been sprayed with too.

A study republished in Environmental Sciences Europe in 2014 (after a controversial retraction due to commercial pressure) compared the effects of feeding rats Roundup-tolerant GM maize (cultivated with or without Roundup) or given Roundup alone in drinking water. All developed significant health problems over a two-year period compared with controls. All treatment groups had higher rates of tumor development.

4. Microwave Popcorn

The popcorn’s not the problem, it’s the bag it comes in. Many microwave popcorn bags contain a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). PFOA causes liver, testicular, and pancreatic tumors in rats and is associated with kidney and testicular cancer in people exposed to it in drinking water, due to chemical plant emissions.

 

5. Farmed Salmon

Farmed salmon are treated with a range of chemicals including fungicides and antibiotics and even artificial color to make their flesh appear more ‘salmon pink.’

A study of organic contaminants in farmed Atlantic salmon compared with wild Pacific salmon revealed the farmed salmon had elevated levels of dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, PCBs, pesticides, and other toxins, some of which are known to increase the risk of cancer. Scientists concluded that the risksof eating farmed Atlantic salmon outweighed the benefits, especially for children, and pregnant or nursing women.

 

6. Hydrogenated Oils

Hydrogenation is the process whereby hydrogen is used to convert unsaturated fat in liquid form toa solid form, which results in trans fats being produced. Hydrogenated oils are found in things like margarine, vegetable shortening, premade baked goods, and fried foods.

Trans fats have been linked to several diseases including cancer, diabetes, and stroke. A study of around 20,000 women showed increased levels of trans-monounsaturated fatty acids in the blood, presumably due to a high intake of processed foods, increased risk of invasive breast cancer.

7. Canned Foods

Bisphenol A (BPA) is found in some plastics and is used to line food cans. BPA is a synthetic estrogen, which disrupts the body’s natural hormones.

BPA has been shown to increase the risk of mammary cancers in animals, and a study published in 2014 found that BPA disrupts the genes defending against breast cancer growth. BPA has also been linked to prostate cancer and BPA levels in urine may help predict prostate cancer in men.

22 Ways Drinking Soda Will Shorten Your Life

22 Ways Drinking Soda Will Shorten Your Life

By Elisha McFarland

Numerous studies have shown the negative health effects of drinking soda on your waistline and your teeth. Drinking soda, however, has far more serious health risks than many of us may realize.

This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2016

According to Euromonitor, the average person in the United States consumes more than 126 grams of sugar per day. That’s equal to 25.2 teaspoons, or the equivalent of drinking a little over three 12 ounce colas.

Numerous studies have shown the negative health effects of drinking soda on your waistline and your teeth. Drinking soda however, has far more health risks than many of us may realize.Regular consumption of sugary drinks is linked to numerous health problems including diabetes, heart disease, asthma, COPD and obesity.

So what are the risks and how much soda is too much? Let’s take a look:

1. Soda can cause a decline in kidney function. In an 11-year-long Harvard Medical School study, including 3,318 women, researchers found that diet cola is linked with a two-fold increased risk for kidney decline.

2. Soda increases diabetes risk. High levels of sugar in soda places a lot of stress on your pancreas, potentially leaving it unable to keep up with the body’s need for insulin. Drinking one or two sugary drinks per day increases your risk for type 2 diabetes by 25%.

Scientifically Proven Method to Reverse Diabetes (Ad)

3. Soda cans are lined with BPA. Soda cans are coated with the endocrine disruptor bisphenol A (BPA), which has been linked to everything from heart disease to obesity to reproductive problems.

4. Soda dehydrates you. Caffeine is a diuretic. Diuretics promote the production of urine, causing you to urinate more frequently. When the body’s cells are dehydrated they have difficulty absorbing nutrients, and it also makes it more difficult for the body to eliminate waste.

5. Caramel coloring in soda is linked to cancer. The artificial brown coloring in colas is a chemical process, it is not made from caramelized sugar. It is made by reacting sugars with ammonia and sulfites under high pressure and temperatures. These chemical reactions result in the formation of 2-methylimidazole (2-MI) and 4 methylimidazole (4-MI), which in government-conducted studies caused lung, liver, or thyroid cancer or leukemia in laboratory mice and rats.

6. Caramel coloring in soda is linked to vascular issues. Dr. Nehal N. Mehta, director of Inflammatory Risk Cardiology at the University of Pennsylvania states that there is a link between vascular problems and caramel-containing products.

7. Soda is high in calories. A 20 ounce can of Coca Cola contains 17 teaspoons of sugar and 240 calories…empty calories devoid of any nutritional value. It would take the average adult over one hour of walking to burn off­ the 240 calories in a 20-ounce soda.

8. Caffeine in soda blocks the absorption of magnesium. According to Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. Magnesium is essential for more than 325 enzyme reactions in the body. Magnesium also plays a role in your body’s detoxification processes and therefore is important for minimizing damage from environmental chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins.

9. Soda increases obesity risk in children. Each additional soda or other sugary drink consumed per day increases the likelihood of a child becoming obese by about 60%. Sugary drinks are connected to other health problems as well.

10. Soda increases heart disease in men. Each soda consumed per day increases the risk of heart disease by 20% in men.

11. Acid in soda wears away dental enamel. Lab testing on soda acidity shows that the amount of acid in soda is enough to wear away dental enamel. pH levels in soda can be as low as 2.5; as a frame of reference, battery acid has a pH of 1, water has a pH of 7.0.

12. Soda contains high amounts of sugar. The average 20-ounce can of Coca Cola has the equivalent of 17 teaspoons of sugar, it’s not hard to see that soda can be bad for your teeth and your overall health.

13. Soda contains artificial sweeteners. While many people opt for artificial sugar to lower caloric intake the trade-off for your health isn’t so sweet. Artificial sugars are linked to numerous illness and diseases including cancer.

14. Soda depletes your mineral levels. Sodas that contain phosphoric acid removes much needed calcium from your bones. After studying several thousand men and woman, researchers at Tufts University, found that women who drank 3 or more cola based sodas a day, had almost 4% lower bone mineral density in their hips, even though researchers controlled their calcium and vitamin D intake.

15. Drinking soda changes your metabolism. Dr. Hans-Peter Kubis, the director of the Health Exercise and Rehabilitation group at Bangor University in England, has found that drinking soda on a regular basis can actually change the metabolism in the human body. Participants drank 140 grams of sugar every day for four weeks (that’s less than two 20 ounce cans of Coke). The results: their metabolism changed after the four weeks, making it more difficult for them to burn fat and lose weight.

16. Drinking more than one soda daily, increases your risk for heart disease and metabolic syndrome. According to Ravi Dhingra, M.D., lead author of the study and an instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School states “If you are drinking one or more soft drinks a day, you may be increasing your risk of developing metabolic risk factors for heart disease.” The Framingham study included nearly 9,000 individuals, over a four year period. Researchers found that individuals consuming one or more sodas a day had a 48 % increased risk of metabolic syndrome compared to those consuming less than one soft drink daily.

17. Diet soda does not help you lose weight. A University of Texas Health Science Center study found that the more diet sodas a person drank, the greater their risk of becoming overweight. Consuming two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500% greater than those who do not consume diet soda.

18. Diet sodas contain mold inhibitors. They go by the names sodium benzoate or potassium benzoate, and they’re used in nearly all diet sodas. “These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it – they knock it out altogether,” Peter Piper, a professor of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Sheffield in the U.K., told a British newspaper. The preservative has also been linked to hives,asthma, and other allergic conditions, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

Note: Some companies have phased out sodium benzoate. Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi have replaced it with another preservative, potassium benzoate. Both sodium and potassium benzoate were classified by the Food Commission in the UK as mild irritants to the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes.

19. Sodas containing ascorbic acid and potassium benzoate can form benzene, a known carcinogen. Benzene can form in beverages and foods that contain both ascorbic acid and potassium benzoate. According to the FDA, when benzoate is exposed to light and heat in the presence of vitamin C, it can be converted into benzene. According to the American Cancer Society, benzene is considered a carcinogen.

20. Daily sodas and other sugar sweetened drinks are linked to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). The 2,634 individuals in the study completed a CT scan to measure the amount of fat in the liver. They saw a higher prevalence of NAFLD among people who reported drinking more than one sugar-sweetened drink per day compared to people who said they drank no sugar-sweetened beverages.

21. Some sodas contain flame retardant. Brominated vegetable oil (BVO) is added to many citrus based sodas and sports drinks to prevent the drinks from separating. What’s the concern? BVO is patented by chemical companies as a flame retardant. It is also banned in over 100 countries, but it is still used in the U.S. Learn more here.

22. Soda is linked to Asthma. A study done in South Australia of 16,907 participants aged 16 years and older, showed high levels of soda consumption were positively associated with asthma and COPD.
