Mike Barrett ~ Antibiotic Resistant Superbugs May Claim 10 Million Lives And $100 Trillion By 2050

There is no question that antibiotics have lent a helping hand in treating various ailments, but now this modern medicine is fueling an issue that was perhaps never considered before. Since their introduction, antibiotics have slowly been fueling the development of superbugs – bacteria that are completely resistant to our conventional treatments. In fact, a recently released report says that superbugs could claim 10 million lives each year as well as $100 trillion by 2050.

Economist and head of the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, Jim O’Neill says that the trend of growing infections resistant to drugs, which are already killing hundreds of thousands of people across the globe every year, is set to get worse unless we do something now.

O’Neill said:

“Drug-resistant infections already kill hundreds of thousands a year globally, and by 2050 that figure could be more than 10 million. The economic cost will also be significant, with the world economy being hit by up to 100 trillion US dollars (£63.6 trillion) by 2050 if we do not take action.

Arjun Walia ~ Scientists Observe Brain Cells While Healing Intention Is Directed Towards Them – Here’s What Happened

“The results of this study indicated that individual healing intention effects are weak, but cumulative. Meaning that repeated applications of healing intention in a given location might actually have measurable consequences, but a “single shot” may not be detectable.” – A Walia

TestTubesBrainResearchIn 2004,  a 3-day experiment was conducted by a team of scientists (led by Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at The Institute of Noetic Sciences) to explore the suggestion that directing human healing intention (one variable of human consciousness) towards living and non living systems could actually have scientifically measurable results. The results were published in the peer reviewed Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (all of the studies mentioned in this article are peer reviewed). (1)

To do this, they recruited four experienced Johrei practitioners to take part in the study. Johrei practitioners believe that healing intention can cause positive changes in a person’s body. It’s a practice that originated in Japan and is similar to other healing intention therapies such as Reiki and qigong, to name a few.

“Johrei maintains that there is a universal energy or spiritual force that can be cultivated and directed by intention. When focused on the human body, Johrei is said to raise its spiritual vibrations, or to achieve spiritual purification; this in turn is said to improve health and to allow one’s divine nature to unfold. Johrei practice assumes that for optimal healing to manifest, repeated treatments are required to help overcome the body’s inertia to remain in its existing state. It is further assumed that intentional effects are not limited exclusively to the body, but may affect and alter the physical surroundings.”  (1) Continue reading

Jon Rappoport ~ Breaking: Vote Fraud In Oregon Sinks GMO Labeling measure

 “The people who own the people who make laws don’t care about justice or fairness. So why should you, when you’re up against them?” – J Rappoport

 

GMO-CornPatentPendingAs my readers know, I’m not a fan of GMO labeling. The real route to victory has always been banning GMOs.

Ban, not label.

But I’m also not a fan of vote fraud. Which is what just happened in Oregon, where a recount of a very close election turned into a criminal act.

In November, Prop 92, which would have mandated labeling GMO food products in the state, went down to defeat by 800 votes.

That razor-thin margin triggered an automatic recount, by law.

During the recount, 4600 ballots were thrown out, because the signatures on those ballots didn’t match the signatures on the voters’ registration cards.

Oregon does elections by mail, so matching signatures is the way to prevent cheating.

When the 4600 ballots were rejected, lawyers for Prop 92 went to court to protest. They stated that some of these rejected voters never received notification that they had to provide new signatures. Other voters might have been out of town and never knew what was going on. And in general, voters were never informed that their signatures had to match.

Judge Kantor denied the assertions and allowed the recount to continue, minus the 4600 ballots.

The Prop 92 people just conceded the election.

Maintaining A Healthy Lifestyle Can Actually Be Fun

HealthyLivingBicyclePathTrees‘Health’ and ‘diet’ have become social buzzwords due to rising concerns over the number of individuals considered overweight or obese. This is primarily because obesity creates health risks that negatively impact one’s way of life. It can impact our ability to breathe easily and prevent us from undertaking any form of strenuous outdoor activity. That’s why it’s so important to consider changing daily routines and opting for a healthier lifestyle.

Being Focused Mentally Is A Great Help When Changing One’s Lifestyle

One of the main problems encountered when attempting to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle is finding the mental strength to continue making the right choices with food and exercise on a regular basis. Reading helpful articles is a good way to get motivated to continue working towards personal goals. Just input the string “healthy living” into a search engine and you’ll discover many excellent blogs and websites that contain no fancy gimmicks or sales pitches, just sensible facts concerning weight loss and how to live a healthy life.

Christina Sarich ~ 21 Natural Alternatives to the Flu Shot

ChristinaSarichThe CDC recently admitted that this year’s flu shot likely won’t protect you from the flu, but did it ever? Though the CDC has issued a formal apology regarding the issue for this season, flu vaccinations have long been seen as ineffective by a horde of experts. But don’t worry – here you will find more than 20 natural flu remedies using natural antivirals.

No surprise here, but there won’t be any refund for insurance companies or patients who have already taken a flu vaccination early as preparation for the 2015 flu season in January and February, despite the CDC’s admission of its inefficacy.

At the end of its apology, though, the CDC says that there is a ‘cure’ for the flu, but it will cost you. GlaxoSmithKline and Roche will happily provide you with two anti-viral medications for patients who come down with the flu. So even if you don’t want to get the flu shot due to it being ineffective, Big Pharma will still gladly handle your case.

Interestingly, the flu shot may never really be protecting you, as since there is no single virus that causes the flu, and therefore there is no one flu vaccine that protects against all of them. A virus mutates over time. It adapts. If a vaccine is created to kill one type of virus, it can mutate into another organism, specifically adapted to withstand the ‘medicine’ that was created to kill it. Biotech has simply attempted to come up with a one-dose, all-purpose vaccine that will kill every virus.

If it were truly possible to kill all viruses, none would be left on the planet. Just like humans, viruses can make mistakes in the copying of RNA or DNA, and these small mistakes can be repeated into new strains. When these mutations don’t kill the organism, they replicate, making new progeny with the ‘mistake’ coding. This is why people are usually susceptible to disease – except there’s a catch.

Innate human immunity works with this world of strange and ever-changing viruses and microbes. It is only when our natural immunity is weakened or disturbed that the body is more likely to get the flu, or any other virus, as well as common invaders like fungi, various parasites including worms, and amoeba, and other single-celled protozoans.

We have both external protections and internal ones. A variety of enzymes contained in tears, sweat, and mucus in the digestive, respiratory, and reproductive tracts will neutralize potential invaders (that is unless they are altered by substances like glyphosate or vaccinations). Internally the phagocytes, or white blood cells, will surround the bodily invaders when our immunity is working properly. Continue reading

Jon Rappoport ~ Foundation Of Medical Reality Explodes

“Roughly 2.5 million people die every year in the US, from all causes. So 1 out of every 5 deaths in the US stems directly from the medical system.” – J Rappoport

cartoon_medicalMalpracticeTime and time again, in these pages, I’ve illustrated the fact that reality is being created for us—and that reality is false. It’s a façade.

Waking up to this is vital, if we want to understand the virtual world we live in. We’re inside a matrix.

Here’s a medical study I haven’t cited before: “A new, evidence-based estimate of patient harms,” by JT James (J Patient Saf, Sept. 9, 2013).

The key quote:

“…the true number of premature deaths [in US hospitals] associated with preventable harm to patients was estimated at more than 400,000 per year.”

Putting it bluntly, the US medical system kills 400,000 hospital patients every year. Continue reading

Jon Rappoport ~ Psychiatry: The Modern Priest-Class

 “Do people suffer, do they have problems, do they experience anguish and pain, do they make choices that sabotage their own interests, do they fall victim to external circumstances, do they long for relief? Of course. But this has nothing to do with fraudulent psychiatric diagnoses. It has to do with nutritional deficits, toxic drugs, toxic food and environmental chemicals, abuse, isolation, intimidation, and a whole host of other potential factors.” – J Rappoport

Psychiatry_CartoonIn this society, psychiatrists are the primary definers of mental states. Their efforts are accepted as official science.

The Psychiatric Political State is based on myths and fairy tales about distinct and separate disorders and “good treatment.”

One of the main psychiatric mantras gaining force? “Everyone at some time in their lives will experience a mental disorder.”

But an open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

And along with that:

All so-called mental disorders are concocted, named, labeled, described, and categorized by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors. Continue reading

Christina Sarich ~ New Law Blocks Anti-GMO Scientists from Advising EPA

“If there was ever a question that our government has been completely infiltrated by extremely questionable interests, let it be known that the stakes have just been raised.” – C Sarich

ChristinaSarichA new law will place restrictions on scientists with clear knowledge on GMO dangers, and create room for experts with overt financial ties to the biotech and pharmaceutical industries affected by EPA regulations. H.R. 1422, which passed 229-191, is an earthquake rumbling through the Environmental Protection Agency’s Scientific Advisory Board.

This means that the EPA can no longer be advised on their own research regarding GMOs or pharmaceutical drugs like antibiotics or vaccines. Can you say circular reasoning, or insular logic? This ‘reform’ means industry-appointed experts will determine what is ‘safe’ and what is not safe for the public, and that the scientists with the most knowledge about the risks pertaining to GMOs and pharmaceuticals will be gagged.

As usual, is the classic political bait and switch, being touted as a means for ‘more transparency.’ But the White House, which threatened to veto the bill, said it would “negatively affect the appointment of experts and would weaken the scientific independence and integrity of the SAB.”

As the Lindsay Abrams points out: Continue reading

Christina Sarich ~ New Harvard Study Discovers Concerning Information About Antibiotics

ChristinaSarichAlexander Fleming discovered penicillin in the 1940s, and it has been used as a poster child for ‘safe’ antibiotics ever since. Fleming’s discovery heralded the ‘age of antibiotics,’ but new research from Harvard scientists reveals concerning information about antibiotics, confirming that the antibiotic age is coming to an end.

Penicillin has been called better than the ‘big gun’ antibiotics for treating pneumonia and other childhood diseases, but it that really true in a new age of antibiotic resistance created by their overuse? Even the corrupt FDA admits that antibiotic misuse and overuse is a problem.

According to the Harvard summary:

“One of the oldest and most widely used antibiotics, penicillin, attacks enzymes that build the bacterial cell wall. Researchers have now shown that penicillin and its variants also set in motion a toxic malfunctioning of the cell’s wall-building machinery, dooming the cell to a futile cycle of building and then immediately destroying that wall.”

This would be a simple microbial process that we could take for granted if it weren’t for the resistance to penicillin and other antibiotics that has emerged in the last few decades. The fact is that scientists still don’t really know how the original ‘age of antibiotics’ worked.
