(NaturalNews) President Obama’s pen has stayed so busy signing executive orders (EO) that it’s surprising it hasn’t yet run dry, and as his days in the Oval Office wind down, he has added another one to his lengthy list of such orders. The recent “Advancing the Global Health Security Agenda to Achieve a World Safe and Secure from Infectious Disease Threats” EO is particularly significant in that it may have put a halt to all non-GMO agriculture in the United States.

Key points of the EO

Section 1 of the EO includes some disturbing points:

“As articulated in the National Strategy for Countering Biological Threats and implemented in Presidential Policy Directive 2 (PPD-2), promoting global health security is a core tenet of our national strategy for countering biological threats. No single nation can be prepared if other nations remain unprepared to counter biological threats; therefore, it is the policy of the United States to advance the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA), which is a multi-faceted, multi-country initiative intended to accelerate partner countries’ measurable capabilities to achieve specific targets to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats (GHSA targets), whether naturally occurring, deliberate, or accidental.” [Emphasis added]

Coordinated effort with military backup

Section 2 of the EO states that the “Council” will include personnel from a multitude of federal government agencies, including the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Department of Defense (DOD) may “facilitate implementation and coordination of Department of Defense programs to further the GHSA, as well as provide technical expertise to measure and evaluate progress in countries the United States has made a commitment to assist.” In other words, the military will enforce this EO if deemed necessary.

Connection to GMOs

How does this tie in with GMOs? The government claims that farm animals are supposedly infected (but typically are not) and must be slaughtered to make way for their “vastly upgraded” counterparts, which are genetically engineered and thus patented and owned by global organizations. The public receives a fear-based agenda riddled with hysteria over disease threats, and they respond to that by willingly going along with the GMO agenda. It’s a convenient agenda for the powers that be, as it allows them to maintain tight control of the food supply while attempting to obliterate small and organic farms.

Unrealistic aims and better alternatives

The EO is titled “Advancing the Global Health Security Agenda to Achieve a World Safe and Secure from Infectious Disease Threats,” but achieving a world like that is unrealistic.  Infectious disease threats have always existed on this planet. The title implies a fear of infections, which is portrayed in the popular music video Vaccine Zombie by Mike Adams. As the lyrics say, “I’m afraid of invisible germs … .” Rather than promoting GMOs and toxic initiatives to address infectious disease concerns, a more effective approach involves educating people to lead healthy lifestyles through nutrition and other immune system-fortifying natural strategies.

Action steps

Don’t be fooled by the impressive- and altruistic-sounding title of this EO. Spread the word about GMO dangers by working to inform family and friends through intelligent conversations and the sharing of relevant online content. We can take back our food supply and end the danger of GMOs for ourselves and future generations. Stay tuned as the GMO issue continues to unfold, and be grateful that Obama’s days of signing his name to oppressive executive orders are rapidly winding down as the January inauguration approaches.

Now you can HEAR chemistry: Health Ranger translates molecules into music in stunning video demonstration that will blow your mind (and your ears)

Now you can HEAR chemistry: Health Ranger translates molecules into music in stunning video demonstration that will blow your mind (and your ears)

Image: Now you can HEAR chemistry: Health Ranger translates molecules into music in stunning video demonstration that will blow your mind (and your ears)

(NaturalNews) What you are about to witness is something I first performed live in Dallas at The Truth About Cancer symposium in 2016, in front of an audience of tens of thousands of people (live + online streaming).

It was so astonishing to the audience — truly jaw-dropping — that people couldn’t stop talking to me about it for days. They wanted to hear more about this extraordinary harmonic code found in the Table of Elements and the laws of physics and chemistry.

In the video below, I demonstrate what I now call “Elemonics” — the science of translating chemistry and molecules into audible music by sequencing elements using the inverse of their atomic mass units (i.e. frequencies) as documented in the Table of Elements. (The video explains it in more detail.)

In essence, I have discovered a way to map the elements to a standard 88-key keyboard using their documented atomic masses. Hydrogen is mapped to 3,520 Hz (high A7 key on the keyboard) as the only arbitrary choice in this mapping, and the rest of the elements are mapped in relation to Hydrogen. Since Carbon has a mass of 12, for example, it gets mapped to 3,520 / 12 which equals 293.3 Hz. That corresponds to the D4 key on an 88-key keyboard.

Using this translation, I was then able to play molecules as musical sequences, allowing the world to HEAR nutritional chemistry for the first time.

Now you can HEAR vitamin C, carbon dioxide, water and progesterone

In this video demonstration, I play the musical sequences for many different molecules of life, including water, oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide, magnesium oxide, calcium carbonate and even progesterone.

Using the same mathematical translation of physical elements into musical tones, I was also able to sequence organophosphate pesticides and toxic herbicides such as glyphosate. In the video below, you can now “hear” toxic pesticides, fluoride and even toxic heavy metals like mercury, lead and cadmium.

What you’ll notice in experiencing all this is that highly toxic elements like Fluorine, commonly used in psychiatric drugs and toxic pesticides, sound disturbing and destructive. This is not mere coincidence.

Click here to watch the Elemonics video demonstration now on YouTube, or watch the video below. You can also download my Elemonics musical sequences as MP3 files at:

Read more about how I discovered this hidden pattern in the Table of Elements below…

How I discovered Elemonics

This incredible revelation came to me during a walk in nature as I was pondering a particular ionization problem with a Time-Of-Flight mass spec instrument at my forensic food laboratory (CWClabs.com).

I was having difficulty ionizing a certain target analyte using the ESI (electrospray ionization) in negative ionization mode, and I was playing around with a thought experiment that explored whether a solution might be found in identifying the harmonic resonance of the molecule in question, then shattering the ionic bonds with ionization voltage broadcast at a resonant frequency.

See, normally in mass spec systems, the fragmentation voltage is set at a fixed frequency. But what if we had control over that frequency as a parameter in our mass spec analysis? Certain frequencies of voltage could turn out to be far more effective at molecular fragmentation.

This, in theory, could achieve more efficient molecular fragmentation, exposing each fragment to easy ionization and subsequent detection via mass-to-charge ratio discrimination. In this case, I’m proposing a post-ionization fragmentation and secondary ionization, which I don’t think is available in current mass spec systems. If this could be achieved, the mass spec software can easily analyze molecular fragmentation to identify the original molecule, using what are essentially “fragmentation fingerprints” to piece together the original pre-fragmented molecule. In effect, I would end up with a bunch of smaller M+H fragments, each with much higher IP (ionization potential) which translates into far greater detection sensitivity for the analyte in question.

In any case, that was just a thought experiment… but it paid off in a strange way. Brainstorming the problem caused me to realize I could translate chemistry into audible music!

So the next day, I started doing the math, using the Period Table of Elements as my guide. If you try to double check my math, by the way, make sure you understand that standard tables only give average masses based on the naturally occurring ratios of multi-isotopic elements. These “average mass” numbers are misleading. To arrive at the correct answers in terms of harmonics, you have to take this to the next level of understanding and identify the whole number atomic masses of each isotopic in a multi-isotopic spread. Lead, for example, isn’t really 207.2. There’s actually lead at 206, more lead at 207, yet more lead at 208, etc. They average to 207.2 based on the naturally occurring isotopic spread observed on Earth, but there isn’t any lead atom that’s actually 207.2 atomic mass units. (I may explain more on this in a follow up article.)

Deep sea mining: discovery of 6 new species in unexplored hydro-thermal vents

Deep sea mining: discovery of 6 new species in unexplored hydro-thermal vents

Image: Deep sea mining: discovery of 6 new species in unexplored hydro-thermal vents

(NaturalNews) (NaturalNews) Six new animal species have been identified living near hot springs nearly two miles beneath the surface of the ocean, according to a paper published by researchers from the University of Southampton and the Natural History Museum in London and Newcastle, and published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Unfortunately, the poorly studied home of these newly discovered species is already slated for deep ocean mining.

The case highlights the great threat to ocean life posed by the up-and-coming industry of sea floor mining, the scientists warn.

Greenpeace has previously warned that though there are between 500,000 and 5 million unidentified marine species, the coming boom in deep sea mining places these creatures at risk of extinction before they can even be named.

Magnet for ocean life

The previously unknown animals were identified by a deep-diving remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that researchers were using to explore a region of the Indian Ocean known as Longqi (meaning “dragon’s breath”) about 1,200 miles southeast of Madagascar. The area explored is about the size of a football field and lies 9,200 feet (2,800 m) below the surface. It contains more than a dozen vent chimneys, mineral spires that rise as much as two stories from the ocean floor and eject hot fluid.

Deep sea hydrothermal vents are incredibly nutrient rich compared with the surrounding ocean. Thus, vent chimneys attract ocean animals from all around, to feed off the chimneys and off the animals that feed off the chimneys.

In addition to the six new species, the researchers also discovered a species of scaleworm known to live near Antarctic vents, and a species of ragworm known to live near Pacific vents 6,200 miles away. These discoveries show that vent animals are spread much more widely across the planet that scientists had previously realized.

Unfortunately, the Longqi area is also known to be rich in deposits of copper and gold, and has already been earmarked for mining.

“We can be certain that the new species we’ve found also live elsewhere in the southwest Indian Ocean, as they will have migrated here from other sites, but at the moment no-one really knows where, or how well-connected their populations are with those at Longqi,” lead researcher Jon Copley said.

“Our results highlight the need to explore other hydrothermal vents in the southwest Indian Ocean and investigate the connectivity of their populations, before any impacts from mineral exploration activities and future deep-sea mining can be assessed.”

Protection urgently needed

Scientists and environmentalists have been warning for some time that the deep sea is in need of protection from rampant mining and other industrial exploitation. The deep ocean plays important roles in many key functions for life on our planet, such as temperature regulation and gas cycling, and also provides habitat for millions of species that form the base of the planet’s food web. Yet only 3 percent of the oceans have any form of legal protection, and only 1 percent of the high seas. This makes the oceans that support all life some of the least protected parts of the planet.

More than 400,000 square miles of ocean floor have already been earmarked for mining by more than 16 countries. In a 2014 article in the journal Science, a group of ocean scientists warned that this industry could cause irreversible devastation if strong regulations are not put in place now.

They point to the fact that deep-sea trawling has already caused major damage to about one-fifth of the planet’s continental slope, perhaps irreversibly.

And a patchwork of international regulations means that even areas protected against trawling may not be protected against mining, and vice-versa.

The researchers highlighted other threats to deep sea life, including oil and gas development, land-based pollution and waste disposal. They note that vast segments of the ocean have already become a de facto dumping ground for toxic chemicals, sewage and radioactive waste.

Doctors issue new year detox health warning

Doctors issue new year detox health warning

Doctors have issued a warning about the potential harms of undertaking a radical new year detox.

They highlight the case of a woman they treated last year who became critically ill after taking herbal remedies and drinking too much water.

The 47-year-old needed intensive care at Milton Keynes hospital.

She recovered with treatment, but her story is a reminder of the dangers of drastic detoxing, the medics say.

While it may be tempting to cleanse yourself of the excesses of Christmas, the concept is not necessarily healthy and is not backed by medical science, they report in the British Medical Journal Case Reports.

The woman they treated had taken a cocktail of herbs and alternative remedies including:

milk thistle
molkosan
I-theanine
glutamine
vitamin B compound
vervain
valerian root

Her partner said she had also been drinking lots of water, green tea and sage tea over the few days before she became ill.

Shortly before being admitted to hospital, the woman collapsed and had a seizure.

Medical tests revealed she had dangerously low levels of salt (sodium) in her body.

Researching the herbal remedies used by the patient, her doctors discovered the case of a man with a history of anxiety who had had seizures due to a low sodium level.

His symptoms developed after consuming a large amount of a herbal remedy that contained:

valerian root
lemon balm
passion flower
hops
chamomile

“The complementary medicine market is very popular in the UK and the concept of the new-year ‘detox’ with all-natural products is appealing to those less concerned with evidence-based medicine and more with complementary medicine,” say the medics in their write-up.

“Excessive water intake as a way of ‘purifying and cleansing’ the body is also a popular regime with the belief that harmful waste products can thus be washed from the body.”

However, they warn that “despite marketing suggesting otherwise, all-natural products are not without side-effects”.

The British Dietetic Association says the whole idea of detoxing is nonsense.

“There are no pills or specific drinks, patches or lotions that can do a magic job,” a representative said

“The body has numerous organs, such as the skin, gut, liver and kidney, that continually ‘detoxify’ the body from head to toe.

“Being well-hydrated is a sensible strategy, but drinking too much water can be as dangerous as not drinking enough.

“It sounds predictable, but for the vast majority of people, a sensible diet and regular physical activity really are the only ways to properly maintain and maximise your health.”

Omega-3 fatty acids linked to lower risk of heart disease

Omega-3 fatty acids linked to lower risk of heart disease

(Reuters Health) – Omega-3 fatty acids in fish and dietary supplements are associated with lower odds of heart disease even in people already at elevated risk because of excessive levels of fats or bad cholesterol in their blood, a research review suggests.

The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish a week and considering supplements of omega-3 fatty acids when that’s not possible. Previous research has linked omega-3s to a lower risk of abnormal heartbeats, less fats in the blood, reduced risk of artery-clogging deposits known as plaque, and slightly lower blood pressure.

For the current study, researchers examined previously published research on two omega-3s: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). They found that consumption of omega-3s in food or supplements was associated with a 16 percent lower risk of heart disease in people with high triglycerides, or fats, in the blood, and a 14 percent lower risk for patients with elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the bad kind.

“The collective evidence from all studies supports a beneficial role of EPA and DHA on coronary heart disease, and stronger associations were observed among those who may benefit acutely from EPA and DHA, such as those with elevated triglyceride levels and those with elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol,” said lead study author Dominik Alexander of EpidStat Institute, with offices in Seattle, Washington, and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

To examine the connection between omega-3s and heart disease, researchers analyzed data from 18 trials that randomly assigned about 93,000 people to get a certain amount of these nutrients.

Across these randomized trials, they found omega-3s associated with a 6 percent lower risk of heart disease, but this was too small to rule out the possibility it was due to chance.

The study also reviewed results from another 17 previously published trials that observed about 732,000 people over long periods of time while they followed their usual diets. Over all of these studies, omega-3s were tied to a statistically meaningful 18 percent reduction in the risk of heart disease.

The study was funded by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED), an advocacy group with manufacturers and sellers of omega-3 dietary supplements among its members. Several study authors have also served as consultants to manufacturers of omega-3 supplements.

Limitations of the study include the wide variation in study designs for the randomized trials, which included patients with a range of eating habits and heart disease risk factors and tested omega-3s over different time periods, the authors note in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Some studies in the current analysis also didn’t track heart health or the amount of omega-3s in people’s diets at the start, making it harder to determine how much these nutrients might directly influence heart disease risk over time, the authors also point out.

Even so, the results from an analysis of data on close to one million patients suggest many people may benefit from boosting the amount of omega-3s they get from eating fish or taking supplements, said Dr. Chip Lavie, of the Ochsner Clinical School-University of Queensland School of Medicine in Australia.

Very few people in the U.S. or other countries who follow a typical Western meat-and-potatoes diet eat enough fish, so they might need to take dietary supplements to achieve close to 1,000 milligrams a day of EPA and DHA, Lavie, senior author of an accompanying editorial, said by email.

“Omega-3 fats are very important for health and well being, especially for the heart,” Dr. James O’Keefe, lead author of the editorial, said by email.

“Try to eat 2 or 3 servings of naturally oily fish like salmon, sardines, and trout each week,” advised O’Keefe, director of preventive cardiology at the Mid America Heart Institute at Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. “If you can’t or won’t do this, consider taking a daily omega 3 supplement containing about 1,000 milligrams of EPA and DHA.”

Listen carefully! Cleaning away earwax could actually damage your hearing, experts claim

Listen carefully! Cleaning away earwax could actually damage your hearing, experts claim

Researchers have updated guidelines around ear health and argued that manually removing earwax can be counter-productive

Dr Seth Schwartz, chair of the American Academy of Otolaryngology, says the process can inadvertently produce MORE wax, or cerumen

Additional risks include cutting the ear canal, making a hole in the eardrum, or dislocate delicate hearing bones, leading to hearing loss, dizziness and ringing

It’s often considered to be a sign of good cleanliness.

But manually removing earwax could actually damage a person’s hearing, according to new guidelines by experts in the US.

Researchers at the American Academy of Otolaryngology noted in their updated guidelines on Tuesday that inserting foreign instruments into the ear canal, such as cotton buds, can cause a variety of hearing issues and actually increase cerumen production.

Bad habits: Manually cleaning earwax has been discredited by experts at the American Academy of Otolaryngology

In addition, manually cleaning the ears also increases the chances of piercing the eardrum, dislocating delicate bones and causing infection.

Furthermore, there’s an added danger of impaction, which blocks the ear canal and can lead to pain, itching, feeling of fullness, ringing or tinnitus, hearing loss or a discharge or an unpleasant odour.

Dr Seth Schwartz, chair of the American Academy of Otolaryngology, said: “Patients often think that they are preventing earwax from building up by cleaning out their ears with cotton swabs, paper clips, ear candles, or any number of unimaginable things that people put in their ears.

“Anything that fits in the ear could cause serious harm to the ear drum and canal with the potential for temporary or even permanent damage.”

He also asserted that, contrary to popular belief, the ear is self-cleaning.

Self-cleaning: Chewing, jaw motion, and growing skin in the ear canal help to move old earwax from inside the ears

“There is an inclination for people to want to clean their ears because they believe earwax is an indication of uncleanliness. This misinformation leads to unsafe ear health habits.”

He added earwax or cerumen was a normal substance the body produces to clean, protect and ‘oil’ ears. It acts as a self-cleaning agent to keep ears healthy by trapping dirt, dust, and other small matter to the sticky earwax which keeps them from getting farther into the ear.

There is an inclination for people to want to clean their ears because they believe earwax is an indication of uncleanliness. This misinformation leads to unsafe ear health habits. Dr Seth Schwartz

Chewing, jaw motion, and growing skin in the ear canal help to move old earwax from inside the ears to the ear opening where it then flakes off or is washed off during bathing.

And this normal process of making wax and pushing the old wax out is continual.

It’s only occasionally that this cleaning process breaks down, creating a build-up of wax which collect and blocks the ear canal. This affects one in 10 children, one in 20 adults, and more than one-third of geriatrics.

It should be treated by a medical practitioner with irrigation, syringing or the application of wax-softening agents known as cerumenolytics, such as Sodium Bicarbonate ear drops BP, olive oil, distilled water and acetone.

Study links vitamin D deficiency to metabolic syndrome in mice

Study links vitamin D deficiency to metabolic syndrome in mice

Image: Study links vitamin D deficiency to metabolic syndrome in mice

(NaturalNews) One out of every four of the world’s adults suffers from metabolic syndrome. This is often a precursor to diabetes and heart problems, and it is no secret that a poor diet that is rich in the wrong kinds of fats and carbohydrates plays a role in its development. However, scientists have also found that a vitamin D deficiency is a vital part of the progression of metabolic syndrome.

Those suffering from this ailment often carry extra weight around their waist, an excessive amount of fat in the liver, and at least two of the following: high cholesterol, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure.

Researchers from China’s Sichuan University found that metabolic syndrome could be treated and even prevented by maintaining high levels of Vitamin D. The study, which was carried out on mice, also confirmed previous findings that diets that are rich in fat can adversely affect bacteria in the intestine, spurring higher blood sugar levels and fatty liver. Insufficient Vitamin D in the body can further contribute to the imbalance of gut microorganisms. Their study was published in the Frontiers in Physiology journal.

Professor Stephen Pandol of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, who worked with the Sichuan University group, said that people who take Vitamin D can help fight metabolic syndrome, whether they get it directly from exposure to sunlight or via supplements.

It’s easy to get Vitamin D

This is good news for the many people suffering from this ailment because a Vitamin D deficiency is easy and cheap to remedy. In fact, spending time in the sun is all it takes to get the amount of Vitamin D your body needs. It is important to note, however, that sunscreen will prevent you from getting the benefits of Vitamin D from sunlight. An SPF 30 sunblock, for example, can slash your body’s ability to produce this crucial vitamin by as much as 99 percent.

People with light skin are advised to spend at least 15 minutes in the sun daily, while those with medium skin need around 25 minutes and those with dark skin need 40 minutes to get the full effects.

Vitamin D has plenty of other benefits for your health as well. It plays a role in cell differentiation and proliferation, mood regulation, and calcium absorption, and it is important for proper immune functioning.

Other natural sources of Vitamin D

If you don’t have access to regular sunshine, supplements are an option, but it’s important to check the sources very carefully. Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, uncovered the prevalence of toxic heavy metals in many popular supplements in his book, Food Forensics. If you don’t have a trusted source of supplements, there are a few foods you can eat to get your Vitamin D naturally.

Oily fish is an excellent source of Vitamin D, particularly trout, salmon, and swordfish. Just three ounces of these fish can give you as much as 97 percent of your daily recommended intake. Other good sources include mackerel, halibut, tuna, sardines, flounder, herring and sole. Of course, you’ll want to consider the source of your fish in order to avoid contamination.

Organic mushrooms are another good source of Vitamin D as they naturally produce it when they are exposed to UV light sources. Shiitake, chanterelle and morel mushrooms can give you about a quarter of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin D apiece, but it only takes one maitake mushroom to get the job done.

While eggs, raw milk, and beef also contain vitamin D, their levels do not come close to meeting the daily requirement.

The findings of the Sichuan University study highlight the need for all individuals to pay attention to their Vitamin D intake. With 59 percent of population being deficient in Vitamin D, the potential for disease prevention is dramatic, and all people need to do to fix the problem is spend more time in the sun or eat the right foods.

Oregon's criminalization of rainwater collection is now complete: Saving water runoff will get you thrown in jail

Oregon's criminalization of rainwater collection is now complete: Saving water runoff will get you thrown in jail

Image: Oregon’s criminalization of rainwater collection is now complete: Saving water runoff will get you thrown in jail

(NaturalNews) Officials in Jackson County, Oregon have again shown their disrespect for private property rights, telling a local couple they must tear out a 40-year-old two-acre pond located on the property they bought two years ago.

Jackson is the same county that recently imprisoned and fined another area landowner, Gary Harrington, for illegally collecting rainwater – the county said the water contained in the lakes Harrington built on his property belonged to the Medford Water Commission, according to a 1925 state law.

Harrington vowed to fight the commission, but eventually served 90 days in jail and paid $1500 for the ponds he built on his property, before finally being forced to destroy the dams and drain the lakes.

Now Jon and Sabrina Carey are facing a similar dilemma after being told that their pond is also in violation of the law.

When the couple bought their 10-acre property two and a half years ago, the pond was a major motivation for purchasing it – in fact, the pond could be said to be its only valuable feature. “We didn’t buy it for the double-wide,” said Sabrina Carey.

Are the Careys being singled out for growing medical marijuana?

The Careys were only notified that the pond was in violation of the law after they attempted to comply with other regulations regarding medical marijuana cultivation – those who grow cannabis for medical purposes are required to identify the irrigation source.

In this case, the pond was listed as the water source, and that apparently raised a red flag with the county water authorities. The Jackson County Watermaster’s Office sent the Careys a letter stating that they not only had no rights to the water in their pond, but had no right to a pond on their property to begin with.

Never mind the fact that the pond was built 40 years ago and is clearly shown on the county records. Now the Careys are faced with reducing their property’s value drastically by removing the pond or, instead, fighting the local authorities – a choice that didn’t work out so well for Gary Harrington.

The Careys have tried to find other solutions – they have offered to reduce the size of the pond and to make the water available for fire-fighting and drought relief operations in the area.

Their lawyer, Sarah Liljefelt, has requested that the commission grant a permit to the Careys to store water for the good of the community.

From the Mail Tribune:

“In the past, the pond has been used for fire suppression and is accessible to fire trucks from Butte Falls Highway, Liljefelt stated.

“Liljefelt said the pond is an important source of water for beavers, otters, elk, deer, bear, mountain lion, bobcat, bald eagle osprey, great blue heron, snowy egret, Canada geese and the western pond turtle.”

Indeed, after forty years it would seem obvious that the pond supports wildlife and that its presence is not only valuable to the Careys, but to the community as a whole.

But the authorities aren’t buying it and are reportedly “disinclined” to accept the request.

Water Commission fears “setting a precedent” by allowing the Careys to keep their own pond

“Water Commission staff found several problems with the Careys’ request, including setting a precedent that could prompt similar requests and weaken state statutes while not meeting the definition of ‘municipal water source.’”

For most of us, the idea that the government should have the right to own what is on someone’s private property and to tell them what they can do with it is a violation of the principles this country was founded on.

But in Jackson County, the rules are different and reflect a nationwide trend towards excessive governmental control over private property and people’s lives.

As Gary Harrington said, however:

“When something is wrong, you just, as an American citizen, you have to put your foot down and say, ‘This is wrong; you just can’t take away anymore of my rights and from here on in, I’m going to fight it.’”

(NaturalNews) The debate about whether vaccines cause severe damage and harm to children is over. Anyone claiming vaccines cause no harm is willfully ignorant of reality, as U.S. courts have concluded, over and over again, that vaccines provably cause serious and permanent damage to children.

The latest such ruling to garner attention concerns a 13 year-old boy who was made tetraplegic (loss of function in all four limbs) following a chicken pox vaccination. After five years of battling the secretive “vaccine court” — run by Health and Human Services and founded for the purpose of denying vaccine damaged children due process via the regular court system — the evidence of harm from the vaccine was so irrefutable and conclusive that HHS had no choice but to declare the boy’s injuries were caused solely by the vaccine.

This federal courts document reveals:

On November 28, 2014, Respondent filed an amended report pursuant to Vaccine Rule

4(c) in which she concedes that Petitioner is entitled to compensation in this case. Specifically, Respondent agrees that “a preponderance of the evidence establishes that petitioner’s TM was caused-in-fact by the administration of his August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine, and that petitioner’s TM is not due to factors unrelated to the administration of the August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine.”  Amended Rule 4 Report at 1-2.

A special master may determine whether a petitioner is entitled to compensation based upon the record.  A hearing is not required … In light of Respondent’s concession and a review of the record, the undersigned finds that Petitioner is entitled to compensation.  This matter shall now proceed to the damages phase.

Vaccine proven to have seriously harmed this child… now the payoff phase begins so the vaccine industry can keep maiming other children with impunity

“Even with this concession, his case continued for another year in the damages phase, during which time the parties continued to negotiate the amount of damages that RD would receive for his injuries,” reports VacTruth.com

VacTruth also describes how this devastating vaccine injury unfolded:

RD’s mother explained that, at that time in RD’s state, only one dose of varicella vaccine was required and RD had already received one dose of that vaccine.  This second dose that was administered to RD at this well visit was determined to be the cause of RD’s horrific injuries, and it was not even required for him, which his family didn’t realize until it was too late.

About 14 days later, RD began to experience excruciating pain shooting through his body along with tingling, numbness and paralysis of his limbs. After extensive testing and many invasive procedures, RD was diagnosed with transverse myelitis.

RD’s parents filed a case in Vaccine Court, which took over five years to settle. RD and his family faced arduous heartbreak along the way.

Sadly, RD will  suffer symptoms of his vaccine injury for the rest of his life. Transverse myelitis is a disease with lifelong effects which can include pain; stiffness; painful muscle spasms; partial or total paralysis of arms, legs, or both; sexual dysfunction; and very commonly, depression and anxiety, due to the stress of living with chronic pain.

Vaccine pushers still refuse to acknowledge the harm caused to millions of children by unsafe immunizations

If you ask any fakestream media journalist about vaccine safety, they will tell you, without hesitation, that “vaccines are perfectly safe and no children are ever harmed by them.”

That’s nothing but fake news, of course, which is what the mainstream media is peddling these days. In truth, vaccines have likely harmed millions of children since their inception in western medicine, and the body count keeps rising while the corrupt system of modern medicine absurdly pretends vaccines have no side effects at all.

If vaccines have no side effects, then why did the vaccine industry need an act of Congress to grant it legal immunity from lawsuits? As VacTruth explains:

In the United States, the government has created an underutilized database, known as the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), to keep track of reactions to vaccinations.

Due to rising litigation against vaccine manufacturers in the 1970s and 1980s, and the large awards the vaccine manufacturers were having to pay to those who were injured by vaccines, many vaccine manufacturers began to leave the vaccine market.  In response to this situation, in 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) was passed.  This legislation shielded the vaccine manufacturers from liability that resulted from administration of a vaccination. One of the intents of this program was to compensate victims of vaccine injury fairly, quickly and efficiently.

This program has awarded approximately $3.4 billion to individuals and families who have suffered vaccine injury and death. These awards are funded by taxes on vaccines.

It should be noted that, after the Vaccine Act was passed in 1986, shielding the vaccine manufacturers from liability, the CDC modified the childhood immunization schedule, greatly increasing the number of vaccines American children receive. In 1983, the CDC recommended 11 doses of 4 vaccines by the time a child was 16.  Today the CDC recommends that a child receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the age of six.

Today, the vaccine industry is little more than a medical mafia that knowingly harms an unknown number of young children each year while enjoying complete legal immunity for its faulty products. No other industry in America — not the automobile industry, firearms industry or even the commercial air travel industry — has ever been granted blanket liability immunity from faulty products. Only the vaccine industry enjoys such extraordinary legal protections — a status that seems wholly unnecessary if vaccines are really as safe as proponents claim them to be.

Legal immunity has encouraged an abandonment of vaccine safety and quality control

The obvious trend in all this is that vaccines will become more and more dangerous to children for the simple reason that the U.S. government has taken away any incentive for product safety. Because literally no costs are associated with vaccine damage and faulty products, the goal of vaccine manufacturer is to increase the number of vaccines sold to children (while pressuring the mainstream media to keep censoring all the stories of vaccine damaged children).

Any sufficiently greedy corporation granted legal immunity against faulty products would pursue the same strategy: Maximize sales regardless of the side effects, because the company doesn’t have any liability when their products harm people. In effect, the vaccine industry was handed a “license to kill” by Congress… all while profits keep rising from an ever-expanding list of vaccines “recommended” by the very same medical prostitutes who are paid by the vaccine industry itself. (See Paul Offit.)

This is why the number of “required” vaccines keeps rising… far beyond anything justified by medicine or “science.” Childrens’ bodies have become profit centers for vaccine makers whose products seriously harm a rising percentage of those children.

The vaccine industry is exploiting children for profit… and it’s out of control

Any rational person looking at the market dynamics, medical ethics and human cost of all this would conclude it’s a criminal medical racket that’s spinning out of control.

It’s now obvious the vaccine medical mafia must be halted… or as many as half our children will sooner or later end up damaged by faulty vaccines deliberately formulated with neurotoxic poisons like mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum. Do I really need to say it’s time to stop exploiting (and damaging) children for Big Pharma’s profits? You’d think such a notion would have been obvious to everyone by now.

First, however, the vaccine medical mafia must be defeated and put in its place. Science must win out over the lies of the vaccine industry, and those who seem to take pleasure in the medical maiming of children — i.e. David Gorski — must be stripped of all medical “authority” and prosecuted for their crimes against humanity.

(NaturalNews) (NaturalNews) Eating just a handful of nuts daily can cut your risk of cancer and heart disease by as much as 30 percent, according to a study conducted by researchers from Imperial College London and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and published in the journal BMC Medicine.

The maximum benefit came from eating just a single ounce (20 g) per day. The risk of diabetes, respiratory disease and premature death was also decreased.

“We found a consistent reduction in risk across many different diseases, which is a strong indication there is a real underlying relationship between nut consumption and different health outcomes,” said co-author Dagfinn Aune. “It’s quite a substantial effect for such a small amount of food.”

You don’t have to eat very much

The researchers analyzed the results of 29 prior, worldwide studies conducted on a total of 819,000 participants. They found that people who ate an ounce of nuts daily had a 15 percent lower risk of cancer, a 22 percent lower risk of premature death and a 30 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease.

The benefits for other diseases were even greater, though not as statistically robust. Nuts cut the risk of diabetes by almost 40 percent, and the risk of respiratory disease by 50 percent.

“In nutritional studies so far much of the research has been on the big killers such as heart disease, stroke and cancer, but now we’re starting to see data for other diseases,” Aune said.

Little or no health benefits were seen from eating more than an ounce per day.

A growing body of research points to a wide range of health benefits from nuts, which are high in protein, fiber, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. They are also a key component of the Mediterranean diet, which has been linked to a wide range of benefits against chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease and dementia.

“Some nuts, particularly walnuts and pecan nuts, are also high in antioxidants which can fight oxidative stress and possibly reduce cancer risk,” Aune said. “Even though nuts are quite high in fat they are also high in fibre and protein and there is some evidence that suggests nuts might actually reduce your risk of obesity over time.”

Even eating nuts three times a week provides big benefits

Nuts have been called a superfood, and some experts are even calling for doctors to start prescribing them, and for their cost to be covered by health insurance.

“This analysis adds further value to scores of clinical studies that reveal the positive health impact of regular nut consumption,” said British cardiologist Aseem Malhotra, who was not involved in the study. “Their mechanism of benefit appears to be through anti-inflammatory properties. It’s time doctors started prescribing nuts to patients which will not only help prevent heart attacks and deaths within a short space of time but combined with other lifestyle interventions would save the NHS billions.”

Nearly all research into the benefits of nuts has been conducted on adults. But at least one study, released in 2015, found that nuts provide important protective benefits for adolescents, as well. That study found that adolescents who ate just 12.9 grams per day cut their risk of metabolic syndrome by more than 50 percent. The benefits increased as the teenagers ate more nuts, then dropped off if they consumed more than 50 grams (1.8 ounces) per day.

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of symptoms linked to the risk of heart disease and diabetes. One in nine U.S. teenagers now suffers from the condition.

A 2013 study found that people who ate just three 28 gram servings of nuts per week had a 39 percent lower risk of death from all causes, a 40 percent lower risk of cancer and a 55 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
