(NaturalNews) No one has protested the election of GOP nominee Donald J. Trump more than state and local government officials in California.

After expressing general outrage that he was able to defeat their chosen candidate, Democrat Hillary Clinton, their attitude turned towards anger and defiance: They have pledged, for instance, to oppose his efforts to enforce immigration laws by deporting those who are in our country illegally, and by cutting off federal assistance to California’s many “sanctuary cities.”

None of this is surprising, given that the Golden State has been ruled by one political party for decades and is about as far-Left as it gets when it comes to ideology. But that said, what about these sanctuary cities? What about the vast number of illegal aliens who reside in California?

State lawmakers and activists have decried the fact that Clinton won the popular vote but did not manage to capture enough Electoral College votes (270) to claim victory. It is believed that all of her popular vote margin came from California. Her huge victory in the state gave her all of its 54 electoral votes as well.

She is up by more than 2 million, at last count, in the popular vote, and nearly all of that margin came from California—the state with the highest population of illegal aliens (2.4 million).

Here’s the thing about that: The U.S. Census Bureau counts illegal aliens as part of the 10-year census that is then used to apportion the number of House seats in Congress to each state. That is important because each state’s Electoral College votes are aligned with the number of congressional districts they have.

So in other words, some states (like California) have outsized apportionment (and, thus, outsized Electoral College votes) because they have large illegal immigrant populations.

Even if people here illegally cannot vote in federal elections, the mere fact that they are counted as part of the U.S. Census that is then used to apportion House seats and electoral votes gives states with high illegal immigrant populations more say in deciding who should be president than they should have.

That means if anything, California’s entire Electoral College tally should be discarded because it is artificially inflated.

And if that were to happen, not only would Trump would have won even bigger than he did over Clinton, it would mean that high illegal immigrant states would no longer have more of a say in governing the country than they are supposed to have.

By comparison, the state of Texas, as of 2010, had about 1.8 million illegal aliens. And though Trump won there by a wide 9-point margin, his victory was only about 800,000 votes—so you could make the same argument that the state’s electoral votes are outsized.

But the bluest parts of the state are home to the most illegal immigrants; if they weren’t in Texas (or the country), perhaps those districts would not be in Democratic hands. There are all sorts of possibilities.

The fact remains that anyone in the country illegally is in violation of established U.S. law. They are violating congressional will. They are thumbing their nose at our legal system and our Constitution. They have no inherent right to be here, and the U.S. has every legal right to make its own immigration rules. That includes, by the way, allowing open borders someday or giving all persons, citizen or not, the right to vote.

That hasn’t happened yet and isn’t likely to happen anytime soon. Before it does, however, we will likely undergo yet another census (2020). If we really want a true representation of American citizens in Washington, D.C.—and we want our presidential electors to reflect the true citizenry—then perhaps President Trump and Congress will address this statutory loophole before then.

Until that time, Democratic presidential nominees who win California ought to be thankful they are getting an added electoral boost they don’t really deserve.

Indian government now confiscating private jewelry, gold during home raids

Indian government now confiscating private jewelry, gold during home raids

(NaturalNews) If you’re an Indian citizen, it is best not to try to hoard gold, jewelry and other valuables, as the government will swoop in and seize it.

As noted by Mish Talk, global financial repression is beginning to accelerate, and it is being led by the Asian giant, India. The government recently declared large denomination bills to be illegal to hold, and now it is targeting privately-held gold.

But the government is not simply targeting gold bars and/or bullion; authorities are raiding homes and are even taking possession of jewelry, with no questions asked or answered.

Here’s some background on what’s taking place:

The global elite has determined that the surest way to control the masses is through control over their personal finances. If the masses can horde cash and valuables, then they can’t be bullied or controlled by the globalist elite. So in order to accomplish this, physical currently will have to be made illegal to possess or otherwise taken away from the masses and out of circulation completely. Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has a great piece explaining all of this.

The next step forward by the globalists to control personal assets

Mish Talk shares another piece of important background information. It essentially notes that there is “cash chaos” in India, where 86 percent of the money in circulation has been withdrawn. On Nov. 8, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi stunned the nation when he announced that 500-rupee ($7.30) and 1,000-rupee notes, which are about 85 percent of the money supply, would no longer be legal tender, effective immediately. “As one might imagine, chaos ensued,” the site noted. “And it continues.”

Modi’s decision sparked outrage and angst, especially among the pundit class. Writing in Bloomberg View, columnist Mihir Sharma lamented the currency-pulling, noting that while the country’s gross domestic product grew at a mighty 7.3 percent, that wouldn’t translate into improved economic conditions for most Indians.

What’s more, he noted that Modi could not backtrack on his decision to demonetize nearly all privately-held cash, because it remains politically popular.

The government sold the demonetization policy as the best way to essentially attack the rich (sound familiar?), and to use it as a “’surgical strike on black money’—the illicit piles of cash many rich Indians have accumulated out of sight of the taxman,” Sharma wrote.

But it has become clear since then the policy is anything but surgical. Rather, it appears to be just another step forward by the globalists to control personal assets, which can, of course, be instantly taken via electronic theft by government agencies if/when it becomes necessary.

Microwave ovens 'fluke' your heart while they 'nuke' your food – alarming studies reveal microwave frequency radiation can affect heart and blood

Microwave ovens 'fluke' your heart while they 'nuke' your food – alarming studies reveal microwave frequency radiation can affect heart and blood

Image: Microwave ovens ‘fluke’ your heart while they ‘nuke’ your food – alarming studies reveal microwave frequency radiation can affect heart and blood

(NaturalNews) Many health conscious consumers rarely, if ever, microwave their food anymore, but when they do, they probably do not realize that they’re not just destroying the nutritional value of the food, but the “nuker” is negatively impacting their hearts.

The typical microwave frequency radiation coming from “nukers” seen in the average American kitchen is more than enough to screw with your heart rate and your heart rate variability. In fact, just 2.4 GHz, the average frequency produced by microwave ovens (and WiFi routers, by the way) can cause immediate and drastic changes to the human heart.

According to Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University, people exposed to radiation for just three minutes at 2.4-GHz can experience severe reactions in heart rate changes and altered heart rate variations, indicating an alarm response to stress, also called electrohypersensitivity (EHS) or rapid aging syndrome. This has been studied for decades. The response includes heart palpitations, clumping of red blood cells and fluctuations of the parasympathetic nervous system typical of a “fight-or-flight” response.

Dr. Havas also revealed that microwave ovens can lead to blood sugar spikes connected with diabetes. This usually happens when people stand within three feet of the oven while it’s running, like when anxious eaters park themselves directly in front of the microwave oven while waiting for those last few seconds to finish “nuking” their food or beverage.

Unequivocal evidence that microwave frequency radiation affects human heart

For years, bogus research and microwave oven fanatics have claimed that microwave ovens do not produce any immediate biological effects because the ordinary household level is far below federal guidelines. Most of those studies were conducted prior to the new millennium, but now environmental radiation is coming at us from multiple sources, including electromagnetic devices, laptops, WiFi and mobile phones.

Dr. Havas documented his peer-reviewed study and stated the following:

“This is the first study that documents immediate and dramatic changes in both heart rate and heart rate variability caused by an approved device that generates microwaves at levels well below (0.3 percent) federal guidelines in both Canada and the United States.”

Microwave sickness or the ‘microwave effect’ dates back to WWII

Microwave ovens are a form of electromagnetic radiation dating back to radar used during WWII. Microwave ovens emit radiation from high and low energy, and have a wavelength around 5 inches. These waves are generated by a magnetron (derived from magnet and electron), the same function that enabled airborne radar used during the second world war; that’s why microwave ovens were first called radar ranges. “Nukers” produce about 2.450 megaHertz (MHz), equivalent to 2.4 gigaHertz (GHz), causing dielectric heating, meaning the water molecules in the food vibrate violently at extremely high frequencies (millions of times per second), creating molecular friction, destroying nutrients and affecting the heart rate and variability of any person that stands near the oven. This is why it’s extremely dangerous to cook meat, because the blood is affected also, like the molecules in the water in food. Structures of those molecules are ripped apart and forcefully deformed. Some people call it “electric whiplash.”

In fact, microwaves are used in the field of gene altering to weaken cell membranes and to break cells apart. Those damaged cells in humans become targets for viruses, also known as the “microwave effect” or “microwave sickness.” Human tissues can experience the same violent deformations as your food that’s nuked.

Do you use a microwave oven often and also happen to experience unexplained headaches, nervousness, anxiety, dizziness, vertigo, impaired cognition, depression, nausea after eating, vision problems, tooth and jaw aching, or extreme and constant thirst? These are the “geno-toxic” effects of damaging your tissues and interfering with normal heart and brain activity.

The Nazis invented the first microwave cooking device

The Nazis created a device to provide mobile food support for their troops when they invaded the Soviet Union. It was all experimental. Then the Russians and the U.S. researched the “safety” of these devices after the war. The Russians later banned the ovens when they figured out how dangerous they were, but not the USA! The FDA approves nearly everything that makes Americans sick, because Big Pharma is there to “rescue” us with expensive drugs, heart surgery, pacemakers and chemotherapy. Go figure.

Highly-cited Swiss clinical study by Hans Hertel reveals destructive effects of microwave ovens on human blood

One of the first food scientists to study the effects of microwaves on the blood and physiology of human beings was Dr. Hans Ulrich Hertel, who along with his biochemistry expert partners, concluded that microwaves resulted in negative health effects, including increased cholesterol levels, decreased numbers of red blood cells, decreased hemoglobin levels (indicating possible anemia) and decreased numbers of leukocytes (white blood cells).

Bottom line? There’s much more to worry about than just the loss of nutrition when “nuking” your food. You may also be “nuking” your blood, damaging your brain and disturbing your heart rate. Easy solution? Use your toaster oven and wait the extra couple of minutes for your food to heat. It’s worth your health and sanity.

Four more officials charged in Flint water crisis

Four more officials charged in Flint water crisis

Image: Four more officials charged in Flint water crisis

(NaturalNews) (NaturalNews) Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed criminal charges against four more people in connection with the Flint water crisis, bringing the total number of people charged to 13. The office is also suing two engineering companies.

Those charged placed concern for finances over the health of Flint residents, Schuette said.

“All too prevalent and very evident during the course of this investigation has been a fixation on finances and balance sheets. This fixation has cost lives. This fixation came with the expense of protecting the health and safety of Flint. It’s all about numbers over people, money over health.”

Stolen money used to poison children

The new charges center around a conspiracy to get the city to stop purchasing water from the city of Detroit in order to save money. This led Flint to draw water from the heavily contaminated Flint River, poisoning hundreds of children with lead and other heavy metals.

Two former emergency managers of Flint, Jerry Ambrose and Darnell Earley, were charged with felonies for conspiracy and false pretenses, and misdemeanors for misconduct in office and willful neglect of duty.

Due to its years-long financial crisis, Flint had its finances placed under the control of emergency managers. Schuette said that Ambrose and Earley supported the construction of the Karegnondi Water Authority (KWA) pipeline – which has yet to be completed – but knew the it could not be built without financial contributions from Flint. Because the city was millions of dollars in debt, they could not issue new bonds to pay for the pipeline. So, the men misused an emergency clause intended to deal with “fire, flood, or other calamity” to illicitly borrow tens of millions of dollars. Allegedly, the money was meant to clean up a contaminated lagoon; instead it was all diverted to the KWA.

With this money, the pipeline project moved forward, allowing Ambrose and Earley to push for Flint to disconnect from the Detroit water supply. The men had also concealed a provision in the bond application requiring Flint to get its drinking water from the Flint River while the KWA was under construction.

According to Schuette, the men knew that the Flint water plant was not properly equipped to treat water as heavily contaminated as that from the Flint River.

Ambrose and Earley, who reported directly to Governor Rick Snyder, are the highest level officials to be charged so far. Their indictment led U.S. Representative Elijah E. Cummings to demand once more that Snyder appear before the House Oversight Committee.

Investigation continues

The other men charged, Howard Croft and Daugherty Johnson, were officials at the city water plant during the switch. According to Schuette, they conspired with Ambrose and Earley to conceal signs that the water treatment plant wasn’t ready for the switch.

Croft also is accused of approving a decision to not use anti-corrosive agents in the water supply. The absence of these agents caused the water to dissolve lead pipes, leaching lead into the water.

Although Croft cited concern over bacterial growth as his reason for keeping the anti-corrosives out of the water, the corrosion itself led to one of the country’s largest outbreaks of Legionnaire’s disease, killing a dozen people. Ambrose was warned about a Legionnaire’s outbreak in March 2015, but two weeks later still publicly insisted that the water was safe.

Schuette reiterated that his investigation is ongoing, and that no individual is immune.

“There are voices out there that hope the poisoning of the water in Flint could be swept under the rug,” he said. “And they hope and wish that the 24-hour news cycle would move on to another subject. Flint deserves better, and the people of Flint are not expendable, so to move on is unacceptable.”

The people previously indicted are accused of concealing and tampering with reports showing high lead levels in city water and the blood of residents, and of lying to federal officials.

The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries

The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries

The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries sounds like some relic of a bygone time. But this City of London livery society is not only a member of the London Museums of Health & Medicine, but is also an active and innovative medical association.

When someone was ill in olden times, rather than find an expensive physician they would probably approach an apothecary, who would diagnose the ailment, prescribe the remedy and sell the appropriate medication. The Society was incorporated back in 1617 in recognition of apothecaries’ specialist skills in compounding and dispensing medicines. Before that, apothecaries were in the Grocers’ Company (founded 1345) and before that in the Guild of Pepperers (founded before 1180). Apothecaries were, however, untrained and unregulated, with the freedom to deal with quack remedies and patent medicines.

The Apothecaries’ Hall in Blackfriars (built in 1668 following its predecessor’s destruction in the Great Fire of London) was restored after slight damage in 1940. The Society’s membership is unlimited and currently stands at over 1600, making it the largest of the livery organisations.

The Society is number 58 in the City’s pecking order and has been licensing doctors to practise medicine since 1815. It used to do so through its membership of the now defunct United Examining Board. 85% of its members must have achieved a medical or pharmacist’s qualifications registrable with either the General Medical or Pharmaceutical Council, respectively.

Its qualifications in vital areas of medicine not covered elsewhere are via two Faculties: the History and Philosophy of Medicine; and Pharmacy and Conflict.

An example of its postgraduate diplomas that are relevant to the current millions of refugees worldwide is the Society’s expertise in Medical Care in Catastrophes; this is an essential requirement for British (and other) medical officers. And its diploma in HIV is required for all NHS consultants seeking to specialise in this field. Such qualifications (some being the first of their kind in the world) are at the highest standards of medical learning.

Notable apothecaries include the romantic poet Keats, the suffragette Elizabeth Garrett Anderson – the first woman to qualify as a medical practitioner, and Sir Ronald Ross – the first British Nobel Laureate and controversial polymath (it was he who first determined that malaria was transmitted by mosquitoes).

How do apothecaries align with pharmacists (the UK uses the term chemist, the US and some others refer to druggists)? They also have to be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council, and are experts in medicine, using their clinical expertise to advise families or other healthcare professionals on the most effective treatments for a particular condition – even those for sale without prescription. When ready-made preparations are not available, they are involved in manufacturing medicines.

Nicholas Culpeper (1616-54) was dedicated to serving the sick and wrote and translated many medical books. His biggest success was what is now known as Culpeper’s Herbal (the herbal remedies of folk medicine include many medically useful ingredients).

The 20th century saw drugs being prepared in laboratories; chemist shops took over the retail aspect of selling medicine; and production was increasingly industrialised.

The global pharmaceutical industry generates annual revenues of over $1 trillion with high-profit margins. The largest organisation is Johnson & Johnson in the States, with annual revenue of $74 billion and more than 250 subsidiaries in over 57 countries. They pioneered the first commercial first aid kits and were the first to produce sanitary products for women.

Big Pharma is the nickname for that vast industry and its trade group. A long way but not separate from the apothecaries of yore.

Aluminium DOES cause Alzheimer’s

Aluminium DOES cause Alzheimer’s

Chris Exley is a professor in bioinorganic chemistry based at Keele University

A link between between aluminium and Alzheimer’s has existed for many years
But a lack of evidence has caused the scientific community to remain unsure

However, his new research confirms the metal plays a role in cognitive decline

A link between aluminium and Alzheimer’s disease has long existed.

But many scientists says there is not enough evidence to blame the metal, used by thousands for everyday purposes to cook and store food.

However, Professor Chris Exley, from Keele University, says his latest research confirms it does indeed play a role in cognitive decline.

Here, in a piece for medical-blogging website The Hippocratic Post, he reveals the findings from his latest study.

Professor Chris Exley, from Keele University, says his latest research confirms aluminium plays a role in cognitive decline

There has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease for half a century or more.

However, without definite proof, there is still no consensus in the scientific community about the role of this known neurotoxin in this devastating brain disease.

The latest research from my group, published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, makes this link even more compelling.

In my view, the findings are unequivocal in their confirmation of a role for aluminium in some if not all Alzheimer’s disease.

At the very least, these new results should encourage everyone and even those who have steadfastly maintained that aluminium has no role in the disease to think again.

I don’t believe that is the only factor, but I think it is an important one which should be considered very seriously.

When our new results are put into the context of what is already known about aluminium and Alzheimer’s disease their significance becomes overwhelming and compelling.

There has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease for half a century or more

We already know that the aluminium content of brain tissue in late-onset or sporadic Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher than is found in age-matched controls.

So, individuals who develop Alzheimer’s disease in their late sixties and older also accumulate more aluminium in their brain tissue than individuals of the same age without the disease.

Even higher levels of aluminium have been found in the brains of individuals, diagnosed with an early-onset form of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease, who have experienced an unusually high exposure to aluminium through the environment or through their workplace.

This means that Alzheimer’s disease has a much earlier age of onset, for example, fifties or early sixties, in individuals who have been exposed to unusually high levels of aluminium in their everyday lives.

We now show that some of the highest levels of aluminium ever measured in human brain tissue are found in individuals who have died with a diagnosis of familial Alzheimer’s disease.

The levels of aluminium in brain tissue from individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease are similar to those recorded in individuals who died of an aluminium-induced encephalopathy while undergoing renal dialysis.

Ageing is the main risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease and aluminium accumulates in human brain tissue with ageing

In support of our quantitative data, we have also used a recently developed and fully validated method of fluorescence microscopy to provide stunning and unequivocal images of aluminium in brain tissue from familial Alzheimer’s disease donors.

Familial Alzheimer’s disease is an early-onset form of the disease with first symptoms occurring as early as 30 or 40 years of age.

It is extremely rare, perhaps 2-3 per cent of all cases of Alzheimer’s disease.

Its bases are genetic mutations associated with a protein called amyloid-beta, a protein which has been heavily linked with the cause of all forms of Alzheimer’s disease.


Frequent sauna bathing can reduce the risk of dementia, a new study has claimed.

Men taking a sauna 4-7 times a week were 66 per cent less likely to be diagnosed with dementia than those taking a sauna once a week, the 20-year follow-up study from the the University of Eastern Finland found.

The study is the first to link sauna bathing to dementia risk.

Individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease produce more amyloid beta and the onset of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are much earlier in life.

This new research may suggest that these genetic predispositions to early onset Alzheimer’s disease are linked in some way to the accumulation of aluminium in brain tissue.

Ageing is the main risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease and aluminium accumulates in human brain tissue with ageing.

Environmental or occupational exposure to aluminium results in higher levels of aluminium in human brain tissue and an early onset form of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease.

The genetic predispositions which are used to define familial or early-onset Alzheimer’s disease also predispose individuals to higher levels of brain aluminium at a much younger age.

Aluminium is accepted as a known neurotoxin, for example being the cause of dialysis encephalopathy, and its accumulation in human brain tissue at any age can only contribute to any ongoing disease state or toxicity.

We should take all possible precautions to reduce the accumulation of aluminium in our brain tissue through our everyday activities and we should start to do this as early in our lives as possible.

Could eating a CURRY treat breast cancer? Spicy ingredient helps to slow the growth of aggressive tumours

Could eating a CURRY treat breast cancer? Spicy ingredient helps to slow the growth of aggressive tumours

Capsaicin is the ingredient responsible for the fiery sensation after eating chilli

New research found it helped to inhibit the growth of aggressive breast tumours

Currently chemotherapy is the only option for triple-negative breast cancer
And experts warn it is unlikely just eating lots of spice could combat the disease

Having a chicken vindaloo curry could help to fight breast cancer, new research suggests.

An active ingredient of pungent substances, such as chilli and pepper, inhibits the growth of tumours, scientists found.

Capsaicin – responsible for the fiery sensation after consumption – also caused triple-negative cells to die in their masses.

Currently chemotherapy is the only treatment option for the most aggressive form of breast cancer.

And experts warn that it is unlikely just eating lots of spice alone could help to combat the disease.

An active ingredient of pungent substances found in spicy curries inhibits the growth of tumours, scientists found

Researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany, carried out tests on cell cultures designed to replicate triple-negative breast cancer.

Capsaicin was added to them for a period of several hours each day.

They discovered it caused an array of responses, including activating a receptor linked to the disease.

The existence of the Transient Receptor Potential Channels (TRPV1) was found in nine different samples from patients with breast cancer.

As a result, the cancerous cells divided more slowly, the findings published in the journal Breast Cancer – Targets and Therapy found.

It also allowed them to die in larger numbers, preventing the surviving cells to move as quickly – impairing their ability to spread around the body.

Capsaicin – responsible for the fiery sensation after consumption – also caused triple-negative cells to die in their masses

Lead author Professor Hanns Hatt said: ‘If we could switch on the TRPV1 receptor with specific drugs, this might constitute a new treatment approach for this type of cancer.’

Capsaicin is known to provide temporarily relief of muscle or joint pain caused by strains, arthritis and bruising.

While previous research has also found it can help to kill other forms of cancer.

The compound was discovered by scientists, from the Indian Institute of Technology, to bind to cells’ membranes – the protective outer shell.

But in high enough doses, it helped to pull the membrane apart, triggering cancerous cells to ‘commit suicide’.

And in 2014, French physiologists found that men with a taste for spicy foods tend to have higher levels of testosterone.

They believed their findings were linked to well documented evidence that chilli peppers can increase levels of the hormones in rats.

Believe that by eating hot curries, men may also be boosting their hormone levels as chili peppers have been shown to increase testosterone levels in rats.

Other studies have found that the chemical arvanil – with a chemical make-up similar to that of the capsaicin – was effective against brain tumours in mice.

However, because of its side effects, the substance is not approved for humans.
