Shocking Study Shows 170 MILLION Americans Drinking Radioactive Water And Gov’t Is Hiding It

By Matt Agorist

A damning report from the Environmental Working Group has just revealed that drinking water for more than 170 million Americans in all 50 states contains radioactive elements that are shown to cause cancer. Not only does the report expose the deadly levels of radiation but it also shows that officials have been actively covering it up.

EWG’s investigation consisted of testing the water supplies of nearly 50,000 public water systems from all 50 states. Researchers found that from “2010 to 2015, more than 22,000 utilities in all 50 states reported radium in the treated water delivered to customers’ taps.”

Only a small percentage of the water supplies exceeded what the Environmental Protection Agency considers “safe;” however, their standards for legal radiation limits are more than 40 years old. EWG pointed out that, according to more recent standards, like those set in 2006 in California, nearly 100 percent of tested water supplies failed. These findings make Flint, Michigan look like child’s play.

“Most radioactive elements in tap water come from natural sources, but that doesn’t take away the need to protect people through stronger standards and better water treatment,” said Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., EWG’s senior science advisor for children’s environmental health. “Millions of Americans are drinking water with potentially harmful levels of radioactive elements, but the outdated federal standards mean many people don’t know about the risk they face when they turn on the tap.”

The problem is only getting worse, too. As EWG reports, the government has long known about this problem and has covered it up by fudging the numbers. Now, one of the people who admitted to fudging the numbers has just been nominated to head the White House Council on Environmental Quality, or CEQ

The nominee, Kathleen Hartnett White, admitted in a 2011 investigation by Houston’s KHOU-TV that if utility tests found radiation levels over the EPA limit, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality would subtract the test’s margin of error to make it appear the water met federal standards. In some cases, this meant that Texans whose tap water posed the extraordinarily elevated lifetime cancer risk of 1 in 400 were not informed of the danger.

Hartnett White told KHOU she did not trust the science behind the EPA’s standard. When pressed by a reporter – “What if you’re wrong and EPA’s right?” – she said: “It would be regrettable.”

Not only did Hartnett White admit to the media they’d been cooking the books but last month, she told the Senate, who then rescinded her nomination. However, this week, Trump renominated her.

“Putting someone in charge of CEQ who deliberately falsified data to get around federal regulations is outrageous, and the fact that her deception left people at serious risk of cancer is even more alarming,” said Scott Faber, EWG’s vice president of government affairs. “The Senate should reject this radioactive nominee.”

“With the renomination of Kathleen Hartnett White to the White House Council of Environmental Quality, President Trump is failing these 170 million at-risk Americans who are drinking contaminated water,” said Christy Goldfuss, vice president for energy and environmental policy at the Center for American Progress. “When Hartnett White was tasked with addressing radiation in Texas’s drinking water as a government official, she regularly and deliberately underreported the amount of radiation in drinking water, keeping families in the dark about their health and safety. Putting her in charge of the Council of Environmental Quality could do untold damage to even more Americans. With today’s data revealed, it is even more vital that our leaders and representatives prioritize clean and safe drinking water for all.”

There you have it. Americans are slowly being given cancer by their government and not only is one of the people responsible for covering it up not getting held accountable, she’s getting a massive promotion. (Click to Source)

Black Death TWO: Girl, 9, drops dead as strange ‘eye-bleeding fever’ spreads

A NEW disease is feared to become even more deadly than the Black Death that killed thousands in 2017 after it killed a nine-year-old child.

black-death-1-1201041

The girl dropped dead with the symptoms of an extremely contagious viral disease than can kill up to 40% of all infected.

She had contracted the bizarre new disease with similarities to the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever.

This disease — usually spread by tick bites or contact with infected livestock — can cause muscle pains, headaches, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding.

And panic is spreading after the sudden death of a girl in the Nakaseke District of Uganda.

A rapid response health team was rushed from the local hospital with a body bag to collect her and prevent any possible outbreak.

Health teams disinfected the girl’s home after her death on Thursday night local time, but didn’t give her grieving family any details about when they could have her body back.

Speaking to local media, family member Harriet Nalunkuma said: “We are stranded on what to do because the health teams took away the body.

“We are waiting for a communication regarding the burial arrangements.”

Local district Health Officer Dr Badru Ssesimba confirmed that blood samples from the girl’s body had been handed over to the Uganda Virus Research Institute, but wouldn’t give more details.

Authorities at the hospital — who didn’t want to be named — said that the body would be buried by health teams due to the “sensitivity” about a further outbreak.

But local officials in the East African country — which has been plagued by similar outbreaks recently — said this could be a completely new disease. (Click to Source)

How flu shot manufacturing forces influenza to mutate

Egg-based production causes virus to target bird cells, making vaccine less effective

Date:October 30, 2017

Institute Summary: The common practice of growing influenza vaccine components in chicken eggs disrupts the major antibody target site on the virus surface, rendering the flu vaccine less effective in humans.

171030134625_1_540x360

According to a new study from scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), the common practice of growing influenza vaccine components in chicken eggs disrupts the major antibody target site on the virus surface, rendering the flu vaccine less effective in humans.

“Now we can explain — at an atomic level — why egg-based vaccine production is causing problems,” said TSRI Research Associate Nicholas Wu, Ph.D., first author of the study, published recently in the journal PLOS Pathogens.

For more than 70 years, manufacturers have made the flu vaccine by injecting influenza into chicken eggs, allowing the virus to replicate inside the eggs and then purifying the fluid from the eggs to get enough of the virus to use in vaccines.

The subtype of influenza in this study, called H3N2, is one of several subtypes shown to mutate when grown in chicken eggs, and the researchers say the new findings further support the case for alternative approaches to growing the virus.

“Any influenza viruses produced in eggs have to adapt to growing in that environment and hence generate mutations to grow better,” explained study senior author Ian Wilson, D.Phil., Hansen Professor of Structural Biology at TSRI.

The new study shows exactly why egg-based manufacturing is a problem for the H3N2 subtype. As H3N2 influenza has become more prevalent, scientists formulating the seasonal flu vaccine have sought to include this virus and teach the human immune system to fight it. Despite this effort, recent flu vaccines have proven only 33 percent effective against H3N2 viruses.

Wu used a high-resolution imaging technique called X-ray crystallography to show that — when grown in eggs — the H3N2 subtype mutates a key protein to better attach to receptors in bird cells. Specifically, there was a mutation called L194P on the virus’s hemagglutinin glycoprotein (HA). This mutation disrupts the region on the protein that is commonly recognized by our immune system.

This means a vaccine containing the mutated version of the protein will not be able to trigger an effective immune response. This leaves the body without protection against circulating strains of H3N2.

In fact, Wu’s analysis shows that the current strain of H3N2 used in vaccines already contains this specific mutation L194P on HA. “Vaccine producers need to look at this mutation,” cautioned Wu.

The researchers say further studies are needed to investigate replacing the egg-based system. “Other methods are now being used and explored for production of vaccines in mammalian cells using cell-based methods and recombinant HA protein vaccines,” said Wilson.

“There’s a huge need for flu vaccine research,” added Wu. (Click to Source)

An AI expert explains how robot-human offspring would work

We are coming to the Days of Noah. So what kind of monsters are sinful humans going to create? The Nephilim are coming back!

adult-3046123__480

Can robots and humans make babies together? This is a serious question inspired by some of the advances already achieved in the 21st century by researchers in cell biology and in a discipline variously known as biorobotics, synthetic biology, or bionanotechnology.

Although it had long been a truth universally acknowledged that sexual intercourse was an essential precursor to conception, it was only around 150 years ago that early studies of embryology revealed the reason why, according to the dogma of the time, intercourse was “essential” in human reproduction. The reason was that only an egg from a female, fertilized by a sperm from a male, can result in a live birth. But thanks to the Nobel prize winning work of researchers like embryologist John Gurdon and stem cell researcher Shinya Yamanaka, it has become possible during the past few years to create both sperm cells and eggs in the laboratory from skin cells, obviating the need for a human mother or father to kick off the reproductive process.

At the end of April 2016, Stanford University and the Valencia Infertility Institute announced the result of a collaboration project in which human sperm, with tails, were created from skin cells. Just five months later, testifying to the speed with which stem cell research is progressing, researchers at the University of Bath reported that they had discovered a method of creating offspringwithout the need for a female egg. This was heralded as a major breakthrough which rewrites 200 years of biology teaching, and could pave the way, for example, for a baby to be born from the DNA of two men.

In August 2017, researchers at Ohio State College of Engineering announced an exciting new technology. “Tissue nanotransfection” (TNT for short) which enables injured or aging tissue to be repaired or restored, including blood vessels, nerve cells and entire organs.

TNT technology has two major components: First is a nanotechnology-based chip designed to deliver cargo to adult cells in a live body. Second is the design of specific biological cargo for cell conversion. TNT doesn’t require any laboratory-based procedures and is also non-invasive.

“By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced. We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining,” writes the study’s co-lead, Dr. Chandan Sen, director of Ohio State’s Center for Regenerative Medicine & Cell Based Therapies. The next step for the Ohio researchers is clinical trials next year to test this technology in humans.

In fraction of a second, TNT injects genetic code into the skin, turning those cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions, generating any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient’s own body. This is key to the concept of a human-robot baby whose genetic information comes from both “parents,” the robot as well as the human. The skin cells used to derive the sperm and egg which start the embryonic process, already contain genetic information from the human parent. But what of genetic information derived from the robot parent?

Robot genes

To answer this question, let us consider the research of a South Korean team lead by Jong-Hwan Kim, a pioneer in robotics. In 2005, Kim and his team at the Robot Intelligence Technology Lab in Korea’s Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) published a paper in which they describe an artificial creature called Rity, living in a virtual world. They used Rity to test the world’s first robotic chromosomes—a set of computerized DNA codes for creating artificial creatures that can have their own personality, and can ultimately reproduce their own kind or even evolve as a distinct species. The effectiveness of the Korean team’s artificial chromosomes was demonstrated by implanting genetic code into two Rity robots living in a virtual world, in order to specify their personality.

In 2007, the Korean team applied for a patent for their “genetic robot” invention. The patent describes in some detail how the research team model their software robot based on established biological inheritance laws, including those propounded by Gregor Mendel, who lived from 1822 to 1884, the founding father of the modern study of genetics.

When a sperm and egg meet, their respective DNAs combine so that half of our DNA comes from our mother and half from our father. We need to understand how the Korean model operates in order to understand how a human-robot baby can be created with genetic codes derived partly from a robot. The team define their “genetic robot” as an artificial creature, a software robot, or a general robot that has its own “genetic codes,” the genetic code of a robot being a single robot genome composed of multiple artificial chromosomes.

The genetic codes are classified into “personality genes” related to the internal state of the software robot, and “outward genes” related to its outward appearance. The outward genes provide pieces of outward genetic information that determine the outward appearance of the software robot, such as its face and its eyes. The personality genes provide fundamental genetic information, internal state genetic information, and behavior determination genetic information, and they dictate the robot’s personality by determining changes in its internal states, including changes in the robot’s motivations, its homeostasis, and its emotions, and changes in the corresponding behaviour manifestations as the robot interacts with its external environment.

The term “fundamental genetic information” refers to fundamental parameters, for example volatility, which have a great effect on changes to the robot’s internal states and external behaviours. The internal state genetic information comprises parameters that affect the internal state of the robot in relation to how it is affected by external inputs to the robot. The behavior determination genetic information refers to parameters that determine the robot’s external behaviours based on its current internal states.

So to summarize their invention, the multiple artificial chromosomes implanted in the Korean software robot dictate the individual personality characteristics peculiar to that robot, which in turn governs how the robot’s internal states change, including its motivation, homeostasis, emotion, and its behavior resulting from those changes while it is interacting with its external environment.

The Korean team’s patent application also summarizes their method for passing on genetic information from a robot “parent” to its robot “offspring.” The genetic codes of one or more software robots are used as the genetic codes of a pair of parent software robots, and new genetic information is created by combining genetic information from paired homologous chromosomes – information provided by the genetic codes of the parent software robots. The combining is conducted according to a predetermined gene crossover rule.

The Korean invention allows the user to design a genetic code for a software robot easily and intuitively and to design genetic codes for various software robots by crossover. It also enables a user to easily modify or construct a genetic code for a software robot by providing both a changing function for intuition traits and a software robot crossover function. This exercise in genetic engineering is used to create software robot offspring with the desired personality features.

It cannot be a huge step to translate the genetic code format generated by the Korean algorithm, into the genetic code format employed in the Ohio TNT chip, thereby allowing researchers to specify personality traits and physical characteristics to be passed from a robot parent to a human-robot baby.

Robot-human offspring

Suddenly the very real possibility has appeared on the horizon of the robots of the future manipulating human skin cells to create human sperm and human eggs, and from them, using the Ohio discovery of TNT as the basis, creating an entire human-robot baby whose embryo can be nurtured and carried through pregnancy by a mother surrogate. By injecting genetic code into skin cells à la TNT, the Ohio researchers have paved the way for the genetic code of a robot, containing some of the characteristics of the robot, to be passed on to its offspring along with human genetic code. This is how I believe it will be possible, within the foreseeable future, for humans and robots to make babies together.

Will this happen in my lifetime? Probably not, as I am 72. But given the phenomenal rate of discovery and progress in the fields of cell biology and nanotechnology, I think it is likely to happen before the end of this century.

There are all sorts of ethical questions relating to such a use of genetic engineering as part of the process to create babies.

These implications were put somewhat into perspective in a post on human genetic engineering by Renuka Sivapatham, a graduate student at the University of Southern Denmark. DNA editing techniques have been available for decades and are crucial tools for understanding gene functions and molecular pathways. Recently, genome editing has stepped back into the limelight because of newer technologies that can quickly and efficiently modify genomes by introducing or genetically correcting mutations in human cells and animal models.

Genome editing technologies have come a long way and have already advanced towards mammalian models and clinical trials in humans. These results force scientists to question the future and the implications of such powerful technology. Should we accept the genetic engineering of human embryos? If yes, when and in what capacity should we accept it?

Prominent scientists in the field have already initiated conversations regarding the ethical implications that arise when modifying the human genome. Preventing genetic diseases by human genetic engineering is inevitable. The slippery slope is if, and when, we start to use it for cosmetic changes such as eye color or for improving a desired athletic trait. A perfect example is surgery, which we have performed for hundred years for disease purposes and is now widely used as a cosmetic tool. Opening the doors for the genetic engineering of human embryos could, with time, lead to genetic manipulation for desirable traits, raising the fear of creating a eugenic driven human population.

Who are we to manipulate nature? For those who suffer from genetic diseases, the answer is not so simple. If we can safely prevent severe genetic diseases and create healthy humans, why not manipulate nature?

At this time the long-term effects of genome editing remain unknown, raising additional questions. As the field progresses, with appropriate regulations and guidelines, it will eventually co-exist alongside other major controversial topics like nuclear power and genetically modified organisms. Since ethics are different across the world, creating international guidelines will be a challenge, but a necessity. Strict regulations are in place for nuclear power, the same should be possible for the genetic engineering of human embryos. To outlaw genetic engineering entirely will be potentially declining a place at the discussion table, as the further utilization of such technologies is unlikely to be abandoned. (Click to Source)

Feds employ data-driven early warning system in opioid fight

192479c30be64b12b6130f6c74cfa531

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The pain clinic tucked into the corner of a low-slung suburban strip mall was an open secret.

Patients would travel hundreds of miles to see Dr. Andrzej Zielke, eager for what authorities described as a steady flow of prescriptions for the kinds of powerful painkillers that ushered the nation into its worst drug crisis in history.

At least one of Zielke’s patients died of an overdose, and prosecutors say others became so dependent on oxycodone and other opioids they would crowd his office, sometimes sleeping in the waiting room. Some peddled their pills near tumble-down storefronts and on blighted street corners in addiction-plagued parts of Allegheny County, where deaths by drug overdose reached record levels last year.

But Robert Cessar, a longtime federal prosecutor, was unaware of Zielke until Justice Department officials handed him a binder of data that, he said, confirmed what pill-seekers from as far away as Ohio and Virginia already knew. The doctor who offered ozone therapy and herbal pain remedies was also prescribing highly addictive narcotics to patients who didn’t need them, according to an indictment charging him with conspiracy and unlawfully distributing controlled substances.

Zielke denied he was overprescribing, telling AP he practiced alternative medicine and many of his patients stopped seeing him when he cut down on pain pills.

His indictment in October was the first by a nationwide group of federal law enforcement officials that, armed with new access to a broader array of prescription drug databases, Medicaid and Medicare figures, coroners’ records and other numbers compiled by the Justice Department, aims to stop fraudulent doctors faster than before.

The department is providing a trove of data to the Opioid Fraud and Abuse Detection Unit, which draws together authorities in 12 regions across the country, that shows which doctors are prescribing the most, how far patients will travel to see them and whether any have died within 60 days of receiving one of their prescriptions, among other information.

Authorities have been going after so-called “pill mills” for years, but the new approach brings additional federal resources to bear against the escalating epidemic. Where prosecutors would spend months or longer building a case by relying on erratic informants and only limited data, the number-crunching by analysts in Washington provides information they say lets them quickly zero in on a region’s top opioid prescribers.

“This data shines a light we’ve never had before,” Cessar said. “We don’t need to have confidential informants on the street to start a case. Now, we have someone behind a computer screen who is helping us. That has to put (doctors) on notice that we have new tools.”

And Rod Rosenstein, deputy attorney general, told AP the Justice Department will consider going after any law-breaker, even a pharmaceutical company, as it seeks to bring more cases and reduce the number of unwarranted prescriptions.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been in lock-step with President Donald Trump about the need to combat the drug abuse problem that claimed more than 64,000 lives in 2016, a priority that resonates with Trump’s working-class supporters who have seen the ravages of drug abuse first-hand. The president called it a public health emergency, a declaration that allows the government to redirect resources in various ways to fight opioid abuse.

But he directed no new federal money to deal with a scourge that kills nearly 100 people a day, and critics say his efforts fall short of what is needed. The Republican-controlled Congress doesn’t seem eager to put extra money toward the problem.

While the effectiveness of the Trump administration’s broader strategy remains to be seen, the Justice Department’s data-driven effort is one small area where federal prosecutors say they can have an impact.

The data analysis provides clues about who may be breaking the law that are then corroborated with old-fashioned detective work — tips from informants or undercover office visits, said Shawn A. Brokos, a supervisory special agent in the FBI’s Pittsburgh division. Investigators can also get a sense for where displaced patients will turn next.

Authorities acknowledge there are legitimate reasons for some doctors to prescribe large quantities of opioids, and high prescribing alone doesn’t necessarily trigger extra scrutiny. What raises red flags for investigators are the dentists, psychiatrists and gynecologists who are prescribing at surprisingly high rates.

The effort operates on the long-held perception that drug addiction often starts with prescriptions from doctors and leads to abuse of more dangerous black market drugs like fentanyl, which, for the first time last year, contributed to more overdose deaths than any other legal or illegal drug, surpassing pain pills and heroin.

But that focus can cause law-abiding physicians to abandon disabled patients who rely on prescriptions, for fear of being shut down, said University of Alabama addiction researcher Stefan Kertesz. Those patients will turn to harder street drugs or even kill themselves, he said.

“The professional risk for physicians is so high that the natural tendency is to get out of the business of prescription opioids at all,” he said.

Another addiction expert, Dr. Andrew Kolodny, founder of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing, said prosecutors’ emphasis on “drug-dealing doctors” is appropriate but inadequate on its own.

“It’s just not really going to have that much of an impact on an epidemic,” he said. The bigger change will come from a stronger push for prevention and treatment, he said. And, he added, “They should go after the bigger fish…. the legal narcotics distributors and wholesalers who have literally been getting away with mass manslaughter.”

Investigators said Zielke charged $250 a visit and made patients pay in cash. But Zielke said prosecutors unfairly targeted him. Instead of more prosecutions, he said, the government “should promote more alternative therapies,” he said. “And they should find out why so many people have pain.”

A second indictment by the anti-fraud unit involved a cardiologist in Elko, Nevada, accused of routinely providing patients fentanyl and other painkillers they did not need. Justice officials hope to expand the data-driven work nationwide.

Will it work? As Soo Song, who watched addiction warp communities while serving as acting U.S. attorney in western Pennyslvania, put it: “The best measure of success will be if fewer people die.” (Click to Source)

America: Home of the HUMAN LAB RATS … Why prescription medications are mostly unsafe chemical experiments that worsen overall health

white-mouse-rat-lab-e1514548778309

Most people think it’s completely normal to take prescription medications, believing that our bodies need synthetic, lab-made chemicals to balance or help control bodily functions or biological processes that aren’t performing properly. What other choices do we have, after all?

Put it this way: Medical doctors go to college for eight years to learn how to juggle multiple medications while reading all of your symptoms with fancy technological diagnostic tests, so shouldn’t you just shut the heck up and do what you’re told, when you’re told, without asking annoying, invasive questions that will most likely have boondoggles for answers?

How many people, after all, are not taking at least one medication for anxiety, depression, inflammation, cholesterol, blood pressure, insomnia or pain?

Actually, there are plenty of us, because we know that “Western” medicine isn’t really medicine at all, but symptom-cover-up chemicals for deeper rooted problems that almost always stem from what we eat, drink and put on our bodies.

Are you a “drug abuser” when you simply take the drugs prescribed to you by a medical doctor?

Prescription drugs and their abuse in America date back over a century. It all started with a concoction made with alcohol and opium called Laudanum. Yes, it was a pain “remedy” that doctors cross-prescribed for anxiety, sleeplessness, diarrhea or incessant coughing. Sound familiar?

It was quite addictive, as any watered-down heroin can be. Since women in the 1800s in America were prohibited from drinking at taverns and saloons, they simply went to the doctor for treatment for cramps or emotional problems, and voila!

Currently, about 35 million people abuse opioids worldwide. Unintentional overdoses have quadrupled since 2000. Thanks to drugs like oxycodone (think of Percocet) and hydrocodone (think of Vicodin), the U.S. is the biggest consumer of deadly prescription painkillers.

Did you know that for the past 15 years, death certificates have listed opioid analgesic poisoning as the cause of death more often than cocaine or heroin?

Maybe you’re just addicted to soda, though. Did you know that a doctor invented Coca Cola, but in the process jump-started his own morphine addiction when he added cocaine to this new drink and sold it at a pharmacy in Atlanta during the Civil War? Ask your doctor if soda and addictive, deadly, heroin-based prescription drugs are right for you.

Are you a lab rat in the middle of an extended, insidious experiment being carried out by mad scientists and medical doctors?

Have you been told repeatedly that your health problems are all “genetic?” That’s because doctors want you to believe that there’s no cure, only chemical medication “management.”

Have you been told you have a chemical imbalance in your brain? That’s because you’re consuming chemicals regularly in your food and medicine, including in artificial sweeteners, tap water, prescription medications and vaccinations.

Most prescription drugs and inoculations are never tested for safety or efficacy, but rather are “fast-tracked” through FDA and CDC approval when pharma lobbyists pay regulators millions of dollars to just say “yes.”

In most other instances, scientific “testing” is simply faked, flawed, altered and skewed to produce the results the pharma companies need to make profits and spread more disease and disorder (think of the Swine flu and Zika virus vaccines here).

Even the yearly flu shot is one huge, dangerous medical experiment that the CDC admits is often a failure. Maybe the reason you need prescription medications is because you’re taking prescription medications. Think about that for a minute.

Now do the math: If the flu shot is a hoax, and prescribed painkillers kill millions of people, then do you really believe your prescription medications, which are dished out by the same rogue doctors and scientists, are given with your “good health” in mind?

Let’s take an inside look at what all the American “lab rats” are experiencing.

Chantix (stop-smoking medication) can cause suicidal thoughts. Nexium can cause inflammation of your kidneys and vitamin deficiencies. Vasotec can ruin your liver. Xanax is extremely addictive and abrupt stoppage can cause seizures. Plavix can cause you to cough up blood. Lipitor can break down your muscles, and can cause kidney failure and long-term nerve problems.

Should we continue?

Mirapex gives some people hallucinations and causes memory gaps. Ambien can cause impaired thinking. Risperdal can give you muscle tremors and uncontrolled movements (drive recklessly much?). Klonopin can make depression symptoms worse, adding in suicidal thoughts and addiction. Actos and Avandia heighten the risk of heart attacks and bladder cancer.

Hey America … picture yourself blindfolded, drugged up and running through a rigged maze with dangerous traps and no exits. This is the world of flu shots, prescription medications, genetically modified food and fluoridated tap water. It’s time to go organic and natural for good. Talk to a naturopathic physician and question anything that has side effects worse than the condition you’re considering treating. Then research the power of natural remedies at NaturalPedia.com. Remember, you don’t have to be a lab rat! (Click to Source)

 

Esteemed German Climatologist Blasts Global Warming As ‘Clever Propaganda’ Tool

stand-up-for-science-rally

Retired German climatologist Dr. Werner Kirstein recently spoke on the topic of climate change before a packed audience at the 14th Anti-Censorship Conference (AZK) last November, blasting the politicization of climate science and taking issue on how data are (mis)handled and deceitfully presented to the public.

“Politicogenic warming”

During the presentation Kirstein comes down extremely hard on the media, claiming that German flagship news media and politicians offer the public only propaganda on certain issues. Thus in Kirstein’s view climate change has little to do with mankind (anthropogenic) but mostly is what he calls “deleted” because the science has been seriously compromised by politics, power-hungry bureaucrats and politically motivated organizations, such as the WMO, IPCC  and The World Bank.

“Sad, but that’s how it works”

Kirstein also claims that universities have been corrupted in that government funding flows only if a researchers show there is a connection between something and CO2-induced warming, no matter how absurd the subject. “It all comes down to funding,” Kirstein notes. “It’s sad, but that’s how it works.”

Climate science is totally politicized.”

Kirstein also reminds that there are many scientists who have been very critical of climate science and that the media in Germany supplies only half-truths on the subject, and is thus providing audiences “pure propaganda“.

Hockey stick a propaganda tool

Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann

The retired professor shows that climate change has been normal throughout the Earth’s history and that we’ve seen even warmer periods during our current Holocene. He characterizes Prof. Michael E. Mann’s hockey stick chart as a propaganda tool. Kirstein also feels that the climate models are faulty and unreliable and that they have been manipulated to make CO2 appear as the driving climate driver.

History, he says, shows there is no correlation between CO2 and global temperature and that statements claiming otherwise are “bogus correlations”.

Even a quadrupling would benefit…

Kirstein then asserts that atmospheric CO2 concentrations have a long way to go before there would be a risk of trouble, noting that especially C3 plants would benefit immensely from a quadrupling the atmospheric CO2 concentration.

Chart: Werner Kirstein, snipped from a presentation at AZK conference.

Fear and fraud

Kirstein also believes that climate scientists are irresponsibly using climate science to spread fear and panic among the population, and says that Potsdam Institute Director Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber “ought to be happy he does not reside in Switzerland” because there falsely spreading fear among the public is punishable with up to 3 years in prison.

Media, scientists propagating fear

The long outspoken German professor also characterizes the notion of “climate protection” as a superstition, a concept that makes no sense. He showed the packed audience a variety of ways of how alarmist scientists and media have used a variety of bogus claims to propagate fear among the public, such as those relating to glacier retreat, polar bear population, unexpected heavy snowfalls, polar sea ice, cold winters, desertification and sea level rise.

Smear, and then run from factual discussion

The politicization has gotten so bad that Kirstein is saddened to say that today “belief in the true nature of climate variability is labeled as conspiracy theory or populism – a killer argument that allows the retreat from every factual discussion.”

Kirstein summarizes:

You don’t have to be a climatologist to reveal that manmade climate change is in fact presented as a political ideology that uses the aid of clever media propaganda.”

Delightfully, Kirstein was applauded throughout the presentation, indicating that the audience is on to the scam of catastrophic “anthropogenic” global warming. (Click to Source)

 

 

Government Knew About Dangerous MMR Vaccine Strain, Used It On Children Anyway

dangerous-mmr-shot-deaths-1

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

Because mass media and technology are geared to shift from one topic to the next with no real depth or understanding of the subject matter, the vast majority of people, even those who are generally more intelligent, simply cannot remember important events that took place only a year ago. For that reason, it is occasionally important to revisit recent occurrences in order to refresh the collective memory.

Nearly ten years later, many will simply not remember that the UK government, which today nauseatingly pushes vaccines and vaccine propaganda, allowed a dangerous MMR shot (more dangerous than regular MMR shots) to be sold on the market for two years in the UK, putting millions of children at risk in addition to the already toxic and deadly nature of the vaccine at play.

As the Telegraph reported in its article “Vaccine Officials Knew About MMR Risks,” published in March, 2007,

Government officials were made aware of some problems with a version of the MMR vaccine in other countries but still introduced it in Britain in the late 1980s, newly released documents show.

The MMR vaccine with the Urabe strain of mumps was first used in Britain in October 1988. It was blamed for the deaths of several children after being withdrawn by the Department of Health in September 1992.

Previously confidential documents released under the Freedom of Information Act show how officials gradually learned of the dangers of the Urabe strain MMR which caused encephalitis-type conditions, including meningitis. Involving swelling of the brain or of the lining of the brain or spinal chord, they can lead to brain damage, deafness or even death.

The papers show that many months before the Urabe MMR vaccine was introduced in the UK, officials were made aware of problems in America, Sweden and Canada.

The first warning came when an unnamed official at a meeting of the Government’s Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation in May 1987 “expressed his reservations concerning reported adverse reactions to MMR in the USA”.

The second came in a letter from the Central Microbiological Laboratory in Sweden in September that year, where authorities reported “52 cases of febrile convulsions probably associated with MMR vaccination”.

Then, a Government working party on the introduction of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, learned of “a report of cases of mumps encephalitis” in Canada at a meeting in Feb 1988.

The documents show that the statistical risk from Urabe MMR was considered to be low. The UK went ahead with its nationwide MMR programme in October 1988 in which 85 per cent of the triple-vaccinations contained Urabe.

The minutes of another meeting of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, in May 1990, show that there was “especial concern” about “reports from Japan of a high level of meningoencephalitis associated with the administration of MMR”.

Yet the government waited another two years before ending its use of the Urabe MMR vaccine. That decision to stop using the Urabe vaccine, however, only came after the manufacturer informed the government that they were going to stop making it.

The Telegraph continued by writing,

The minutes were obtained by the FOIA Centre, a specialist research company, on behalf of one of the parents of a child in a group bringing litigation at the High Court. The Government insists it acted swiftly as soon as it became aware of the dangers of Urabe MMR in September 1992.

Sir Liam Donaldson, the chief medical officer, told one of the parents in a letter: “As soon as the Department of Health had clear evidence that there was a risk with Urabe-containing MMR and that there was no such associated risk with a different strain of mumps virus (the Jeryl Lynn strain) used in an alternative MMR vaccine, the department moved quickly to discontinue use.”

The Telegraph cont.,

Prof Kent Woods, chief executive officer of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, confirmed that the UK authorities had been aware of “sporadic cases” in Canada. However, the risk of meningoencephalitis from Urabe MMR was lower than the risk of the same condition resulting from “wild-type mumps virus”, he said.

Urabe MMR was withdrawn “following reports of generally mild transient meningitis caused by the mumps vaccine virus in some children who recently received the Urabe mumps vaccine containing products”.

Yet, in typical fashion, the government admitted no wrongdoing, instead doubling down on its collectivist view that the “benefits outweigh the risks” and that you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. Too bad if you’re the egg.

The Telegraph wrote,

A Government spokesman said: “The UK investigated the evidence and acted promptly when this problem with Urabe strain of mumps vaccine was identified.

“On the basis of information obtained in studies, the UK was in a position to make an informed decision on whether to continue using the Urabe vaccine, as there was an alternative vaccine strain, called Jeryl Lynn, which did not appear to have the same risk.”

You can’t handle the truth about vaccines (Ad)

The spokesman added: “In 1992 the Committee on Safety of Medicine considered all of the evidence and concluded that the benefits of vaccinating with Urabe mumps strain vaccines still outweighed the risks.”

Although having taken place in 2007, it is important to revisit incidents such as these in order to show how much things change while they remain exactly the same. (Click to Source)

Science DENIALISM of the Left goes ballistic with wholesale denial of chromosomes, anal cancer transmission and healthy diets for dogs

scientist-mad-crazy-professor-doctor-funny-hair

Thursday, December 28, 2017 by: 

(Natural News) The Left has become the anti-science political party. To be a leftist, you must engage in outrageous science denialism on a large array of issues ranging from genetics to disease transmission. This “Science Denialism Disease” (SDS) has even infected educational institutions, where instead of teaching college students hard sciences, leftist professors are now offering degrees in “social justice” or “gender studies” where real-world facts are banished from all debate.

To the Left, it turns out, logic is an enemy and truth is a menace. It doesn’t fit the Left’s delusional narrative, so it must be criminalized, condemned and banished from society.

Below, I’m listing just a few of the topics where leftists have become anti-science zealots who preach a dangerous new political cultism that’s devoid of actual facts. They’ve so completely abandoned scientific facts and physical reality that they truly qualify as being mentally ill (or at least deranged). Check out some of the examples below to see for yourself.

Actual left-wing college professor quote: “Chromosomes don’t determine sex”

As reported by Campus Reform:

A biology professor from San Jose State University recently argued in several tweets that “chromosomes don’t determine sex.”

The tweets were written in response to Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain, who had tweeted a picture of the XX and XY chromosomes as reminder of “how many genders there are.”

Apparently, colleges are now attempting to rewrite genetic science to fit their “gender fluidity” narrative which is rooted in delusion and self-inflicted fantasy. According to leftists, there are now an infinite number of genders, and individuals can instantly transform their bodies from one gender to another by merely wishing for such a transformation to take place. As it turns out, if you believe in transgenderism, you don’t believe in science.

This is the new science of the Left: Total delusion to fit a political narrative. But there’s more…

Leftist nutritional science: All dogs must be vegans!

In another shocking example of left-wing science denialism, a California animal shelter has decided to declare that all dogs must be vegans, making sure they are only fed vegan diets.

Apparently they were too busy waving magic wands over their own reproductive organs to notice that dogs and cats eat a lot of meat.

Limiting them to vegan diets is, of course, is a form of animal cruelty. Thus, in the name of “compassion” and veganism, California libtards are now going to subject innocent animals to cruel forms of dietary deficiencies that promote disease and suffering. It’s all being done, of course, in the name of “peace” and “compassion.” This genius idea was dreamed up — try not to laugh — by a Hollywood screenwriter named Roger Wolfson.

As reported by Libtards.news:

The Los Angeles City Board of Animal Services Commissioners are currently mulling a proposal that would turn the L.A. shelter system into the first one in our country to give its dogs a strictly vegan diet… The idea was first proposed by Commissioner Roger Wolfson, who is also a Hollywood screenwriter. He claims that vegan diets can eliminate health problems in dogs.

What’s next? Will California pass a law that criminalizes dog food containing meat? Will all pet foods have to carry warning labels if they contain meat, but not if they contain GMOs?

Anal intercourse couldn’t possibly spread anal cancer, according to the delusional LGBT community

There is a particularly nasty cover-up taking place in the LGBT community that denies the science of disease transmission. Anal sex — a common behavior practiced by gay men — turns out to be incredibly efficient at spreading anal cancer for all the obvious reasons. But the Left doesn’t want anyone to know the truth about the anal cancer pandemic now bleeding its way across the LGBT community, and any who dare point out the actual medical and scientific facts on this issue are immediately branded “intolerant haters.” Y’know, because actual science is now categorized as “HATE” by the brain-dead Left.

As reported by Natural News:

…[A]nal cancer is being declared as the most pressing problem among homosexual men, the Los Angeles Times reportedly calling it “the next big crisis” for the gay community. The American Cancer Society (ACS) has also declared that it expects to see 8,200 new cases of anal cancer just in 2017 alone.

One female porn star who declared she would avoid performing with male actors who had engaged in risky anal sex was so bullied by the Left that she ended up committing suicide. Thus, not only can you die from anal cancer contracted via anal sex, you can also apparently die by pissing off liberals by declaring you don’t want to contract anal cancer.

That’s how dangerous the “Left Cult” has become: They can actually berate people to the point of committing suicide, even when their concerns were completely valid. To fit in with the Left’s new tolerance, apparently we must all get anal cancer so we can share in their anal collectivism and “equality.”

Transgenderism moves toward transanimalism, transageism and transspecies designations

If a 30-year-old man can declare himself to be a 30-year-old woman, why can’t a 70-year-old man declare himself to be a 15-year-old girl and go back to high school? The “magical thinking” buffoonery of transgenerism is now eroding its way into “trans everything-ism,” as now demonstrated by certain individuals who believe they are animals.

After all, if the Left insists that a human being can magically and instantly transform from a male to a female, why can’t they also transform their race? Their species? Their age? Here’s a story about a white woman who now self-identifies as black, even though she’s genetically Caucasian. It makes you wonder: Can she now apply for black scholarships and minority-advantaged college entrance approval for being “black?” What does this say to actual black people, by the way? That white people can be just as black as black people? Hmmm… (Go ahead, insert your favorite “white men can’t jump” joke here…)

Before long, we’ll see 70-year-old male perverts (perhaps Al Franken, who is reportedly seeking a new gig) declare themselves to be teenage girls demanding to go back to middle school so they can shower with the other girls. And anyone who declares it to be outrageous and stupid will be banned by YouTube, blocked by Facebook and censored for their “intolerance.” Meanwhile, biological men who declare themselves to be transgender women will win all the state championships in wrestling by pounding real girls’ faces into the mats, all to the cheers of “tolerant” California libtards who cheer the brutal beat-down in the name of “inclusiveness.” (Yes, leave it to the Left to institutionalize wife beating and call it social justice.)

It also won’t be long before some lunatic leftist declare herself to be half alien — as in extraterrestrial, not illegal border crossers — then demands she be treated as the ambassador for an alien civilization on planet Zorg. Any who condemn her as being insane will be labeled “intolerant,” of course, because “inclusiveness” must now include all the mentally deranged people who think they are leprechauns, great cats, rare primates or bipedal humanoids from another planet.

Once we start accepting people’s imaginary gender designations, you see, there’s no limit to all the delusions we must now embrace as being real. There’s also no limit to the number of pronouns we will be expected to memorize and spout out on command as a demonstration of our obedience to “inclusiveness.” Canada, for example, has already criminalized “misgendering” someone, even if you have no idea what gender they are.

California also passed a law that threatens people with jail time for misgendering someone else. The problem with these outrageously stupid laws, of course, is that people can changer their gender at any time, in their own minds, without giving any public notice, meaning that any one of us can be instantly guilty of “misgendering” anyone at any time, even without intentionally doing so. When “gender” has no basis in physical reality and can be changed in an instant, the very idea of “misgendering” is meaningless and stupid. That’s why California, of course, is leading the way.

The Left’s misgendering laws have truly stretched the boundaries of the bubble of insanity in which liberals operate. In essence, the Left has now criminalized language.

What’s next? Will the Spanish language ban the feminine and masculine forms of words like “la puerta” or “la esquina?” Notice those words are feminine, not masculine like “el toro.” Will gender-leaning words be criminalized everywhere, wiping out half the Latin-based languages and leading humanity down the rat hole of language criminalization and left-wing stupidity where we revert to communication via grunts and hashtags?

If you enjoy having sex with the tailpipes of automobiles, you’re the new VICTIM class!

As one more example of the Left’s desperate lurch to create victims out of everyone while denying scientific reality, mentally ill people who enjoy having sex with automobiles are now being welcomed to the LGBT acronym chain, which now reads LGBTQQQWTFLOLROFL. (By the way, even reading that acronym is now deemed a hate crime, so you may want to shield your eyes and wipe this line from your memory, lest you be one day brain-scanned for committing a thought crime.)

In a video that of course went wildly viral, this man was caught on camera having sex with the tailpipe of an automobile. (That’s the problem with using cars as dates; there’s no privacy because you can’t get them through your bedroom door.) Now, even this practice is being “normalized” as another left-wing victim group that we must all accept as part of our ever-expanding “inclusiveness” tyranny.

Notice, by the way, that if you add a “y” to “tranny,” you get tyranny. This is not a happy coincidence.

In fact, almost everything society once accepted as being a sexual mental disorder — pedophilia, bestiality, sex with corpses, etc. — is now being welcomed to the “inclusiveness” tent by deranged leftists who obviously have no boundaries or limits on anything because “discrimination” is hateful, you see. So you can’t make any judgement about anything at all without being labeled a hater.

Not surprisingly, the left-wing (liberal) media is also starting to “normalize” people having sex with animals. With the chant of “Love wins,” leftists are now saying people who enjoy having sex with animals are another “victim” group that no one else can criticize. As reported via Natural News:

In a recent 6,200-word piece titled, “What’s it like to date a horse?” New York Magazine actually claimed that “zoophilia” remains “relatively little understood,” as if bestiality were always just another sexual choice humans are free to make. The magazine interviewed “a 42-year-old man from Canada” about his horse-sex experiences, which, according to the interviewee, began when he was a boy.

All this, of course, denies the existence of the mental disorders behind such perversions. Do I even need to say it? Having sex with automobiles, animals and dead people is NOT normal behavior. (There, I know, I just committed another “hate crime” according to the Left.) It’s abnormal. It’s deranged. It’s a mental illness.

Then again, the Left-wingers who accept all this as “normal” are, themselves, mentally ill to begin with. As radio host Michael Savage correctly pointed out, “liberalism is a mental disorder.”

He’s right, of course. But if you disagree, you can always go f##k your Toyota to fit in. (Click to Source)

Is the public ready for Meat 2.0?

gmo-burger

Impossible Foods, a Silicon Valley-based company, has rolled out its new Impossible Burger, genetically engineered from plant protein to look and taste as much as possible like red meat.

The new burger, and a similar product from a company called Beyond Meat, seems to be marketed to win over people making the transition from eating meat to a more vegetable-based diet, while not depriving them of the flavor. These products are already available in some restaurants and specialty stores, but making them more broadly popular may take some time.

“Vegetarians are not their primary market,” says Garrett Broad, a professor of communications and media studies at Fordham University. “In fact, in a lot of ways, they don’t want their products to be associated with vegetarians at all. They’re really aiming for those meat reducers. They’re aiming for those folks who are maybe looking to switch out a meat option once, twice, three times a week. They want this to be a product that is meat. It’s just meat from plants.”

The genetically modified ingredients in the Impossible Burger remain a source of controversy. In fact, it can’t be sold at all in certain European countries. The US, on the other hand, has a longer history of accepting genetic modification in our food systems, Broad notes.

The specific genetic modification occurs in the construction of a substance known as heme. Heme gives the familiar flavor, smell and texture to meat as we know it, but it’s also found in a variety of plant-based sources. The Food and Drug Administration has decided not to certify this key plant protein as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), but this is not an indication that the burger is unsafe to eat, Broad says.

“The FDA hasn’t said that the hemoglobin ingredient is not safe. What they have said is that it has not passed their Generally Recognized As Safe requirement, as yet,” Broad explains. “They’re looking for more testing from Impossible Foods to meet this GRAS requirement. … The history of the FDA and the history of food science and technology suggests we’re likely to see these ingredients get the Generally Recognized As Safe designation.”

Environmental groups and food activists don’t speak with a unified voice on this topic, Broad says. While some are generally supportive, in large part because of the known environmental harms caused by contemporary animal food production, Broad says, others are asking Impossible Foods to pull the burger from the market until it gets official FDA approval.

These groups are concerned “as much about process as they are about the product,” Broad explains. Their concerns center on who is making decisions about “what we’re going to eat and the transparency in the regulatory process,” as well as a general skepticism about genetic modification, which they see as potentially harmful to the environment and human health.

Plant-based burgers have seen significant growth in market share in the last few years, but much of that has been at high-end grocery stores and high-end restaurants. That might, however, be changing, Broad says. Beyond Meat now has a deal with Safeway, and their “burger” is now available at other major mass-market grocery stores, primarily in California.

Price is still an obstacle for the average shopper, but Broad points out that if consumers paid the full price of a beef hamburger, taking into consideration all the costs to environmental and human health, “that couple-of-dollar burger from McDonald’s really costs more.”

“That’s an argument that these folks make, too,” he points out. “If we were able to have a level playing field here, these prices could get to parity even quicker. But there is still a way to go. … With scale and with time, I think something like a quarter of the market in the next 20, 30 years would be huge, going from this very niche space that we’re in now.” (Click to Source)
