The 99th Congress ‘Screwed’ Us By Giving Vaccine Makers Legal Exemptions From Product Liability Regarding Vaccines: That Has To Stop NOW

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Ever since the 99th U.S. Congress caved to Big Pharma—under DURESS—in the 1980s with passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34), the U.S. CDC and FDA have been committing healthcare and medical science FRAUD regarding vaccines...

Passive Facebook Use Correlated with Depressive Symptoms

Great holiday, fantastic party, adorable children, incredible food: everyone shows their life in the best light on social networks. Those who take a look around on such sites can find that their self-esteem takes a hit as it seems as though everyone is better than them.

Users who use social networks passively, i.e. do not post themselves, and tend to compare themselves with others are in danger of developing depressive symptoms. This is what a team of psychologists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) led by Dr. Phillip Ozimek discovered...

Low Doses of Radiation Give Cancer Cells Advantage Over Normal Cells

New research in mice helps to understand the risks around exposure to low doses of radiation, such as CT scans and X-rays.

Low doses of radiation equivalent to three CT scans, which are considered safe, give cancer-capable cells a competitive advantage over normal cells in healthy tissue, scientists have discovered. Researchers at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge studied the effects of low doses of radiation in the oesophagus of mice...

The Tale of rBGH, Milk, Monsanto and the Organic Backlash

Organic milk is now as readily available as conventional milk as more consumers and companies are recognizing its benefits and demand. A recent estimate by the USDA, says organic products are now available in nearly 20,000 natural food stores and nearly 3 of 4 conventional grocery stores.

If you and/or your children drink organic milk, you’ve already heard about rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone), which may have prompted you to switch from conventional milk to organic milk in the first place.

Scientists Now Believe Quantum Entanglement May Apply to Time Itself

By Jake Anderson

The discoveries made over the last century by physicists studying quantum mechanics—some of which suggest that reality is only made certain by the presence of a conscious observer—is nothing short of mind-blowing.

One particular concept, entanglement, was so out there that Albert Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance” and for many years refused to accept it as true...

Cambodia will send back 1,600 tons of trash to US and Canada, govt says country is ‘not a dustbin’

Cambodia will return 83 shipping containers loaded with plastic waste to the United States and Canada, the country’s Environment Ministry has announced. The move comes as Southeast Asia tires of accepting the west’s refuse.
The shipping containers were discovered on Tuesday in Sihanoukville, once a sleepy fishing village and now an overdeveloped, rubbish-strewn port city on the country’s south coast. Though the ministry does not yet know which companies were responsible for bringing in the containers, a spokesman said that 70 were American and 13 came from Canada.

Any companies found responsible will be prosecuted, he said.

Wasp spray used as meth alternative has caused at least 3 fatal overdoses, West Virginia police say

People in West Virginia are using a new chemical to gain a methamphetamine-like high: wasp spray.

State police told WCHS that the chemical spray is being used as an alternative form of meth.

On Friday, nearly 30 cans of wasp spray were sold in Boone County alone.

"From what we're being told, if you use it, you know, you might use it once or twice and be fine, but the third time when your body hits that allergic reaction, it can kill you," Sgt. Charles Sutphin said.

Dozens arrested as Hawaiians protest $1.4bn telescope on sacred mountain

Dozens of people have been arrested on Hawaii’s Big Island this week after hundreds of protesters stood, lay and even chained themselves to structures in an effort to stop the construction of a billion-dollar space observatory at the summit of Hawaii’s tallest mountain.

The protests are the culmination of longstanding controversy over the site of the proposed observatory atop Mauna Kea, the highest point in the Hawaiian islands.

Astronomers say the site will offer an unparalleled view into deep space. But many Native Hawaiians consider the mountain sacred, and fear the construction of a telescope as tall as an 18-story building would desecrate it.

New York battered with heavy rain from Tropical Storm Barry, leaving one person dead, streets flooded and water gushing through subway stations

At least one person has died after remnants of Tropical Storm Barry battered New York with torrential rain, lightning and gusty winds leaving streets flooded and water gushing through subway stations on Wednesday.

A Connecticut man died after a tree was struck by lightning and a large limb fell onto his car roof at around 5 p.m. as he was driving on Bridgeport's Park Avenue.

Police found Jarrod Marotto, 21, of Southington, unconscious behind the wheel and he died on the way to hospital, WABC-TV reported.

An electrical crew had to shut down the power to wires that had also toppled on the vehicle before rescuers could begin to work to free Marotto.

'There are plenty of showers and thunderstorms around the area this evening,' the National Weather Service warned in a 5pm tweet. 'These storms could produce strong gusty winds and heavy downpours. Remember, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect until 10pm, and a Flash Flood Watch until 5am.'

Avoid airline food: The FDA has issued a warning about unsafe food conditions

The quality of airline food is being called into question. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning letter in March 2018 to a major airline catering company, warning about unsafe and insanitary conditions and kitchens "contaminated with filth." The FDA found a Kentucky food preparation facility to be so insanitary, they claimed that the food is adulterated and "injurious to health."

The company in question is Gate Gourmet, Inc. The food catering company provides airline food for a slew of airlines including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, LAN Airlines, Air Algérie, Air Canada, American Airlines, United Airlines, Qantas, Aerolíneas Argentinas, Avianca, Iberia Airlines, Air China, Air France, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, Thai Airways, Swiss International Air Lines, TAM Airlines, Air Indus, Alitalia, and easyJet.

Home Birth May Start Babies Off With Health-Promoting Microbes

By Joan Combellick, Yale University

For all of human history, babies have been born where their mothers lived – whether in a house, hut or cave. Only in the last century has birth moved out of the home and into the hospital. How has that changed the types of microbes that live in and on our bodies – collectively known as the microbiome – which we know are vital to human health?...

DEA tracked every opioid pill sold in the US. The data is out—and it’s horrific

Between 2006 and 2012, opioid drug makers and distributors flooded the country with 76 billion pills of oxycodone and hydrocodone—highly addictive opioid pain medications that sparked the epidemic of abuse and overdoses that killed nearly 100,000 people in that time period.

As the epidemic surged over the seven-year period, so did the supply. The companies increased distribution from 8.4 billion in 2006 to 12.6 billion in 2012, a jump of roughly 50%. In all, the deluge of pills was enough to supply every adult and child in the country with around 36 opioid pills per year. Just a 10-day supply can hook 1 in 5 people into being long-term users, researchers have determined.

The stunning supply figures were first reported by the Washington Post and come from part of a database compiled by the Drug Enforcement Administration that tracked the fate of every opioid pill sold in America, from manufacturers to individual pharmacies.

Printable Material Could Lead to Cheaper Solar Panels and Electronics

Imagine printing electronic devices using a simple inkjet printer — or even painting a solar panel onto the wall of a building.

Such technology would slash the cost of manufacturing electronic devices and enable new ways to integrate them into our everyday lives. Over the last two decades, a type of material called organic semiconductors, made out of molecules or polymers, has been developed for such purposes. But some properties of these materials pose a major hurdle that limits their widespread use...

Why It’s Probably Better for the Planet to Throw Plastic in the Trash

Millions of Americans dutifully fill their recycling bins each week, motivated by the knowledge that they’re doing something good for the environment. But little do they know, there’s a recycling crisis unfolding.

Starting as early as 2017, municipalities across the country, from Douglas County, Oregon to Nogales, Arizona to Broadway, Virginia, to Franklin, New Hampshire, began landfilling many recyclables or simply canceling their recycling programs altogether. The impetus for this disconcerting change? China.

For decades, the country was content to accept, process, and transform recycled materials from across the globe, but no longer. In July 2017, the government announced new policies that would effectively ban imports of most recyclables, particularly plastics. They went into effect last March. Considering that China has imported a cumulative 45% of plastic waste since 1992, this is a huge deal.

Connection between Judge Chhabria and Monsanto?

Chhabria has a pretty stellar background. Born and raised in California, he obtained his law degree in 1998 from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, graduating with honors. He served as law clerk for two federal judges and for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and worked as an associate for two law firms before joining the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office where he worked from 2005 to 2013. He was nominated by President Obama for the seat he holds now in the summer of 2013.

But interestingly, one of those law firms where Chhabria worked has raised eyebrows. Covington & Burling, LLP, is a well-known defender of a variety of corporate interests, including Monsanto Co. Covington was reportedly instrumental in helping Monsanto defend itself against dairy industry concerns over the company’s synthetic bovine growth hormone supplement, known as rBGH (for recombinant bovine growth hormone) or the brand name Posilac.

Antidepressants linked to dementia: Mental meds may just trade one condition for another

Although people who suffer from depression may be desperate to get relief from this illness that can have such a negative impact on daily life, tricyclic antidepressants fall into this category, so it’s important to pay attention the concerning new findings if you take medications like Elavil, Deptran, Sinequan, or Silenor. The same can be said for antihistamines like Benadryl, among other drugs.

The study, which was published in BMJ, involved more than 40,000 dementia patients and more than 283,000 people who don’t have dementia and followed them from 2006 to 2015. They found that people who had dementia had a greater likelihood of having taken class 3 anticholinergic drugs prior to developing the illness.

NEURAL IMPLANT SENDS CAMERA FEED INTO BLIND PEOPLE’S BRAINS

SEEING WITHOUT EYES
When a person becomes blind — as opposed to being born that way — their brain’s visual cortex is typically undamaged. However, it’s also fairly useless since it’s not receiving any information from the eyes.

In an extraordinary medical trial, six blind people have now had their vision partially restored thanks to Orion, a new device that feeds images from a camera directly into the brain — and they may just be the first of many to benefit from the cutting-edge tech.

“By bypassing the eye completely you open the potential up to many, many more people,” Optegra Eye Hospital surgeon Alex Shortt, who wasn’t involved with the research, told The Daily Mail. “This is a complete paradigm shift for treating people with complete blindness. It is a real message of hope.”

This technology could be a real game-changer for the visually impaired, and totally blind; fingers crossed that the technology will continue to evolve, and give more hope, and sight, to people dealing with this.

JUDGE REDUCES SONOMA CO. MAN'S $80 MILLION AWARD FROM MONSANTO TO $25 MILLION

A federal judge in San Francisco on Monday reduced an $80 million award levied against Monsanto Co. to $25 million for a Sonoma County man who claimed the company's Roundup weedkiller caused his non-Hodgkins' lymphoma.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria upheld a jury award of approximately $5 million in compensatory damages to Edwin Hardeman, 70, of Santa Rosa, but said that guidelines in a 2013 Supreme Court decision required him to reduce the jury's $75 million in punitive damages to $20 million.

The ruling leaves Hardeman's total award at $25,267,634. His case was the first to go to trial of more than 1,000 federal lawsuits against Monsanto nationwide.

PFAS CRISIS EXPANDS AS MILLIONS OF AMERICANS IN 43 STATES ARE EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Tens of millions of Americans in 43 states may have been exposed to toxic fluorinated compounds known as PFAS in their drinking water.

In a report from May, the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) showed how PFAS had exposed upwards of 19 million Americans through contaminated groundwater. EWG found 610 contaminated locations ranging from public water systems, military bases, military and civilian airports, industrial plants, dumps, and firefighter training sites.

Now the environmental advocacy group has identified 58 more military sites where high levels of PFAS used in firefighting foam have been detected in groundwater or drinking water, from Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Richardson, Alaska to Fort Eustis, Virginia, reported the Military Times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely, completely wrong, and those agencies which allowed this to happen, particularly to our military families, need to get this corrected immediately.

Otago University researchers call for radical change in sport saying gender binary has had it's day

Otago University researchers are calling for gender binary divisions in elite sports to be scrapped, after finding it unfair for transwomen to compete against other women.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) guidelines that allow male-to-female transgender athletes to compete in the women's category at the elite level has raised significant debate since being introduced in 2015.

A recent case of New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, a transwomen competing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games, has polarised opinions about the inclusion of transwomen in women's sport.

But after discussing the topic in the latest issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics
with Professor Alison Heather and Dr Taryn Knox, Associate Professor Lynley Anderson said gender binary in sport has had its day.

"To be simultaneously inclusive and fair at the elite level some innovative thinking is required, rather than attempting to shoehorn people into either 'male' or 'female'," she said.

With 147 million dead trees, Californians brace for fire

This is the state of much of the Sierra, where aerial surveys from 2010 and 2018 counted 147 million trees that died from drought and invasive beetles. A key at-risk burn zone is between 4,000- and 6,000-foot elevations on the west flank of the central Sierra, where large swaths of pine trees lay dead. Other high-risk areas include the west flank of Yosemite and national forest just north of Lake Tahoe, according to a study and map analysis by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the U.S. Forest Service.

It’s a testament to the new era of wildfire danger: Even in a year with landmark rain and snow totals in California, and a benign start to fire season in June, the chance of another round of catastrophic wildfires this late summer and fall has fire experts cringing.

“It’s just a matter of time,” says Amy Head, a Cal Fire battalion chief. “When it happens, we’re looking at dry standing fuel ready to burn, and it could be pretty catastrophic.”

Teens hooked on social media at greater risk of depression

Teenagers who spend hours on social media could be risking depression.

Experts said the internet encouraged youngsters to measure themselves against others, usually those with 'perfect' bodies and exciting lifestyles.

This 'upward social comparison' can significantly increase the symptoms of depression and low self-esteem.

Social media also affects those who are already feeling low by putting them in a 'reinforcing spiral', an academic study suggests.

Natural Enemies Combat Pests Effectively Unless Surrounded by Conventional Farms

When cabbage looper moth larvae infest a field, sustainable growers will often try to control the pests by releasing large numbers of predators, such as ladybugs. That way they can avoid spraying expensive and environmentally harmful insecticides.

Still, farmers have mixed results when they supplement their fields with beetles or other predators.

A new study of cabbage crops in New York – a state industry worth close to $60 million in 2017, according to the USDA – reports for the first time that the effectiveness of releasing natural enemies to combat pests depends on the landscape surrounding the field...

High-Quality Diet Linked to More Beneficial Gut Bacteria

It is well established that diet influences health and disease, but the mechanisms underlying this effect are not fully understood. Shedding light on the diet-health connection, a team led by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine reports today in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition an association between diet quality and microbiome composition in human colonic mucosa.

The researchers found that a high-quality diet is linked to more potentially beneficial bacteria; while a low-quality diet is associated with an increase in potentially harmful bacteria. They propose that modifying the microbiome through diet may be a part of a strategy to reduce the risk of chronic diseases...

Barry Impacts: Flooding Swamps Arkansas Police Station and Animal Shelter; Washes Out Highways

The remnants of what was once Hurricane Barry brought widespread flooding into southwestern Arkansas overnight Monday and early Tuesday.

Floodwaters rose over the hoods of cars in the parking lot of the Nashville, Arkansas, Police Department. A spokeswoman for the department told weather.com water was also getting into the building. A video showed a steady stream of water flowing by the Nashville City Hall and the road in front of it.

In Gurdon, Arkansas, water flowed into a handful of businesses along Elm Street.

Flooding at the Clark County Humane Society in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, killed at least one dog and others were in danger of drowning and hypothermia, Janie Allen, president of the board for the society, told Live Storms Media. Other dogs and puppies were swimming for their lives in their kennels.

The Last Lunar Eclipse of 2019 Occurs Tuesday, Just in Time for Apollo 11 Celebrations

Tomorrow (July 16), the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 to land astronauts on the moon and two weeks after the moon totally eclipsed the sun, it will be the moon's turn to undergo an eclipse of its own. The full moon, in Sagittarius, will pass partway through the southern part of the Earth's shadow resulting in a partial lunar eclipse.

This event favors the Eastern Hemisphere, known colloquially as the "Old World": Africa, Europe and western Asia. Most of South America will see the moon rise already within the Earth's shadow. Conversely, for central and eastern Asia and Australia, the eclipse will still be in progress when the moon sets during the dawn hours of July 17.

Unfortunately, North America will be completely shut out; the eclipse occurs during the daytime with the moon below the horizon.

Ebola crisis spreads to Goma after victim slipped through three checkpoints unnoticed

EBOLA’s first victim in Congo’s largest city managed to slip through three virus checkpoints, health chiefs have admitted, sparking fears the virus could spread further afield.

Officials confirmed the disease had now reached Goma, a lakeside city of roughly one million people, which lies on the border with Rwanda. Goma is more than 220 miles south of where Ebola was first detected a year ago and is the largest city to be affected by the outbreak. So far Congo has seen more than 2,500 people infected by the disease and nearly 1,700 killed.

Big Pharma’s stock values PLUMMET after President Trump announces executive order on drug prices

On July 5, the day after Independence Day, President Trump announced that in lieu of any formidable action by Congress, his administration is planning to issue an executive order that will force drug companies to sell their drugs here in the United States for the same amount that they do in the lowest paying foreign nations.

In other words, American patients will pay no more than what patients do in countries where drug prices are sold for the cheapest price. This will ensure that Big Pharma doesn’t get away with price-gouging First World countries for life-saving medications when those same medications are being sold for far less in the Third World.

Congress investigating possible secret ‘bioweaponization’ of insects by the Pentagon

The US Congress has backed an amendment to the 2020 US Defense budget which could force an investigation into allegations that the pentagon had weaponized insects, including ticks, in a secret program.

Rep. Christopher Smith (R-New Jersey), co-chair of the House Lyme Disease Caucus, asked a series of hard-hitting questions about the alleged ‘bioweaponization’ program and its potential side-effects, including the possible spread of a bacterial infection.

“Americans have a right to know whether any of this is true,” Smith said in a news release. “And have these experiments caused Lyme disease and other tick-borne disease to mutate and to spread? Who ordered it? Were any ticks released by design?”

When Ancient DNA Gets Politicized

The logic here for those who had read the study was confusing. The new research had nothing to say about the genetic history of Jews or Palestinians or the connection those modern populations have to the land. (Though the word "Palestinian" comes from "Philistine," Palestinians are not thought of as the descendants of Philistines; it appears that Netanyahu was using this unrelated point to launch into his argument.)

“To me it seemed like it just provided another opportunity—even if it's just tangential—to take a swipe at Palestinians,” says Michael Press, an independent scholar who studies the presentation of archaeology in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. “It's hard to blame the authors much here since Netanyahu's use of the study really was a non-sequitur.” (The authors of the study did not wish to comment but are preparing a formal response.)

Barry Impacts: Sewer Systems Overflow in Alabama; More Flooding in Mississippi and Louisiana

The storm that was once Hurricane Barry continued to add to the woes of an already waterlogged Mississippi and Louisiana on Monday while in Alabama the storm's rains overwhelmed sewer systems.

More than 250,000 gallons of sewage spilled from systems along Alabama's coasts. The Baldwin County Health Department said about 125,000 gallons spilled into D'Olive Creek in Daphne, Alabama. As much as 75,000 gallons of sewage was spilled into a ditch in Fairhope, while 8,000 gallons was discharged into Hollinger Creek in Bay Minette, according to the health department.

Across Mobile Bay, more than 80,000 of untreated sewage spilled into three creeks in Mobile, according to the Mobile Area Water & Sewer System.

‘We don’t know how well antidepressants work’: Danish study blows lid off flawed medical research

Researchers from the Nordic Cochrane Centre have expressed alarm at research into the effectiveness of antidepressant medication, citing such degrees of widespread bias and systematic distortion that we can't be certain they work.

“We are not saying (anti-depression medication) doesn’t work. But the studies that have been done are often of poor quality and it’s therefore difficult to say anything about the effect of antidepressants,” said Asger Sand Paludan-Müller, a PhD student and one of the co-authors of the analysis, as cited by Videnskab.

The Number Of Global Earthquakes Is 3 Times Above Normal – 6.1, 6.6, 7.3 + Dozens More Hit The Ring Of Fire Over The Last 48 Hours

By Michael Snyder

Within the last 48 hours we have seen large earthquakes going off like firecrackers all along the Ring of Fire. As you will see, a magnitude 6.1 quake just hit Japan, a magnitude 6.6 quake just hit Australia and a magnitude 7.3 earthquake just hit Indonesia. And of course all of this comes just about a week after southern California was hit by the two largest earthquakes that it has experienced in more than two decades. So is all of this shaking unusual?

Just a few moments ago, I pulled up the most recent data from Earthquake Track, and what I discovered is more than just a little bit alarming...

Study: Regular Aerobic Exercise Can Slash Heart Attack Risk In Half, Even In Healthy People

By Ben Renner

Cardio exercises, such as running, cycling, or jogging for long distances can be very challenging, especially when one doesn’t get off the couch on a regular basis. It’s well known that regular cardio exercise benefits those at risk of developing heart issues, but a new study out of Norway finds that neglecting aerobic exercises can still greatly increase one’s risk of a heart attack in the future — even if an individual generally appears to be in good physical health...

EXCLUSIVE: Google to block all anti-cancer, “anti-vax” and anti-GMO websites at the browser level as tech giant goes all-in with pharma drug cartels

By late 2020, Google’s Chrome browser will automatically block all so-called anti-cancer, “anti-vax” and anti-GMO websites as part of Google’s collapse into a Monsanto/Pharma criminal cartel. Users who want to visit websites that expose the scientifically-validated risks and potential harm of vaccines, chemotherapy, glyphosate or GMOs will have to switch to alternative browsers and search engines, since the Google.com search engine is already in the process of eliminating all such websites from its search results.

Within a year or so, the Google Chrome browser won’t even allow a user to visit sites like NaturalNews.com without changing the browser’s default settings. The only websites accessible through Chrome will be those which are “approved” to promote mass medication, chemotherapy, pesticides, vaccines, fluoride, 5G cell towers and other poisons that enrich powerful, globalist corporations while dumbing down the population.

Study: A Daily Dose Of Nuts Could Be Key To Staying Sharp In Old Age

By John Anderer

Nuts have always been viewed as a healthy snack and great source of protein, but new research suggests that a steady, hardy diet of nuts can also sustain mental sharpness and cognition as we age.

Conducted at the University of South Australia, the study found that consuming more than 10 grams of nuts per day led to improved mental functioning and thinking, and better memory and reasoning. The study consisted of 4,822 Chinese adults aged 55 or older...

One council woman even described it as a “sonic weapon” which seems appropriate considering that health experts overseas have been fighting since 2010 to get this technology banned...

5G technology is being installed in the U.S. and around the world despite the telecom industry’s inability to provide scientific evidence that it’s safe, and research that has determined that it isn’t. A new online documentary reports the risks associated with this.

Doctors, elected officials, environmentalists, security experts, the U.S. Navy, utility companies and many others have been trying to stop this deployment...
