You read the ingredients on food products all the time, so why haven’t you ever read the inserts that come with vaccines and flu shots? Have you ever read the side effects, the ingredients or the warnings, even once? Don’t you think it’s time? Oh wait, so you didn’t know that you could ask for that? The certified professionals have to show it to you if you ask, including the nurse at the school or doctor’s office and, yes, your local neighborhood pharmacist. Did you know that the secretive vaccine court has settled in the billions of dollars for vaccine-induced injuries to Americans, yet there is nary a man, woman or child who has read the vaccine insert even once in their life? And how many vaccines does someone currently residing in the United States get by age seven? — More than 30 vaccines, some in multiple combinations, not to mention flu shots, booster shots, swine flu and more. So what are the top six warnings that you won’t believe are printed right in front of your eyes, on the vaccine inserts and on the CDC website?

Top 6 scary warnings about vaccines and flu shots

  1. Printed on the FluLuval flu shot insert: “Safety and effectiveness of FLULAVAL in pediatric patients have not been established.” They’re admitting on the vaccine insert and on the CDC website that neither the vaccine manufacture nor the CDC has run any tests on the safety or effectiveness of this flu shot.
  2. The Vermont Coalition for Vaccine Choice reports, “the introduction of thimerosal [mercury] into vaccines appears to have been based on a single, uncontrolled and poorly reported human study in the late 1920s.” Mercury is a known neurotoxin and carcinogenic (cancer causing) agent.
  3. “Tell the doctor if your child is being treated with drugs… that affect the immune system” — do you know this includes antibiotics, since antibiotics kill all bacteria in the gut, including the good kind that help build immunity? Antibiotics exist in US tap water — did you measure how much you drank today and the level of antibiotics? Antibiotics are in vaccines also, including the antibiotic neomycin.
  4. “Tell your doctor if you have ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction to any component of the vaccine.” How would you know, especially if you have no idea about the list of ingredients in MOST vaccines, including mercury, aluminum, MSG, gelatin (reduced animal parts), peanut oil (still wondering where those peanut allergies come from?), genetically modified egg embryo, aborted fetal tissue, sorbitol (artificial) and, of course, formaldehyde, which is used to embalm dead folks. Be sure and tell your doctor if you’re allergic to being dead, or if that just “runs in the family.”
  5. “Be sure to tell your child’s doctor if your child has a personal or family history of seizures.” — But seizures (febrile — fever induced) are a side effect of most vaccines, and the warning on the vaccine insert that nobody reads is printed in plain sight. Many girls have seizures, and some go into anaphylactic shock (and some go into coma and die) after receiving the HPV (“cancer vaccine”). The HPV vaccine list of adverse reactions include multiple sclerosis; Guillian-Barre syndrome; neurological, hormonal and immune disorders; and even death. More than 20,500 adverse reaction reports pertaining to Gardasil have been filed with the U.S. government (VAERS) — an average of 12 reports per day. Nearly half required a doctor or emergency room visit, with hundreds of teenage girls and young women needing extended hospitalization.
  6. Secretive Vaccine Court (above the law): The vaccine industry has their own court of law with their own judges that are more powerful than the Supreme Court. This secretive vaccine injury settlement court has paid out billions in damages to families and their children injured by vaccine toxins.

Organic immunity choices have zero side effects

So, in conclusion, are your options really a choice between which vaccines and how often, or are your options between vaccination and NO vaccination? Your informed choice is the latter. Remember, invasive medicine that contains chemicals, known neurotoxins, carcinogens and foreign GM (genetically modified) bacteria is just a “shot in the dark.” Due to the failure of vaccines to build immunity — in actuality, they usually decrease immunity — millions of Americans are going about “medicine” all wrong. End the insanity of your own vaccine damage campaign right now! Check into organic homeopathy and never look back. You have the power to decide.

Two widespread industrial chemicals can cause infertility in fish down to at least the fourth generation: The plastics chemical bisphenol A (BPA) and a key ingredient in human birth control pills, according to a study conducted by researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and published in the journal Scientific Reports.

“We were looking at things that can be important in reproduction and survival, the fertilization rate and the survival of embryos,” researcher Donald Tillit said.

Prior studies have shown that certain pollutants can induce changes that are passed on to offspring.

“What we know now is it can occur in fish,” Tillit said. “Now we know that fish exposed can pass the effects to offspring several generations down.”

Grandchildren, great-grandchildren affected

The study was conducted in the laboratory, where researchers exposed developing fish embryos to BPA or to 17a-ethinylestradiol (EE2, a major ingredient in oral contraceptives). Both chemicals have been confirmed as endocrine disruptors that can cause developmental disorders.

The fish were observed and allowed to reproduce, and their offspring were also observed for three generations. Other than the original generation, none of the fish were exposed to the chemicals.

No reproductive abnormalities were observed in the exposed fish, or in their offspring. The third generation of exposed fish (the “grandchildren”), however, exhibited a 30 decrease in fertility compared with fish whose ancestors had never been exposed. The next generation (“great-grandchildren”) had a 20 percent drop in fertility.

“If those trends continued, the potential for declines in overall population numbers might be expected in future generations,” researcher Ramji Bhandari said. “These adverse outcomes, if shown in natural populations, could have negative impacts on fish inhabiting contaminated aquatic environments.”

“This study shows that even though endocrine disruptors may not affect the life of the exposed fish, it may negatively affect future generations.”

The multigenerational effects observed likely belong to the field of epigenetics, which studies the way that changes in gene expression (rather than the DNA itself) can be passed on to future generations. Studies have shown that everything from BPA and pesticides to changes in the maternal diet can cause epigenetic changes down to four or more generations.

Endocrine disruptors widespread

The chemicals studied are both widespread in the environment, and like other pollutants they tend to concentrate in aquatic environments.

BPA is a chemical used to make plastics hard and transparent, and also to make resins that line food and beverage cans – both of which can cause it to leach into human food and from there into the water supply. BPA is also used in a variety of common non-food consumer and industrial products, including electronics and even the paper used to print receipts.

In recent years, concerns over the health effects of BPA have led to a proliferation of “BPA-free” products. Unfortunately, studies suggest that these substitutes have the same health effects as BPA.

EE2 is a major ingredient in birth control pills, and about 68 percent of all EE2 in such pills has been shown to pass out of the body unchanged in urine or excrement.

Even though EE2 passes into the environment in such large quantities, a 2010 USGS study showed that the amount of estrogen released into drinking water by birth control pills is utterly dwarfed by the amount released from other sources, such as livestock operations and soy and dairy foods. This just goes to show the massive scale on which human are flooding the environment with out-of-place hormones.

This flood of hormones may be one reason for the recently observed phenomenon of male fish in U.S. rivers changing into females. This is also being studied by the USGS.

Elon Musk warns that artificial intelligence may spiral out of control and give rise to self-replicating machines that destroy humanity. Stephen Hawking mirrors the same warning with even more dire language about the future of human civilization and its survival in the universe. Bill Gates warns that a killer flu pandemic could wipe out a substantial portion of the human race, spreading uncontrollably across the planet and causing widespread fatalities.

What do all these dire warnings have in common? They’re things that I and many other people have been warning about for years. While I posted a very specific warning list in 2012 (see below), there are people who were WAY ahead of me on these warnings. Steve Quayle, in particular, warned about the risks of biological weapons two decades ago. Some scientists, too have been warning about the rise of AI since the dawn of personal computing in the 1980’s. Similarly, anti-nuclear activists have been sounding the alarm on the dangers of nuclear weapons and nuclear power since the dropping of the first two atomic bombs in World War II. Jeffrey Smith has been warning about the dangers of GMOs for many years, and observers of atmospheric tinkering have been warning about the risks of atmospheric experiments since at least the 1990’s.

What’s fascinating is that the mainstream media doesn’t consider any of these risks to be “real” until someone like Elon Musk points them out. When Alex Jones warned in the 1990’s that the federal government was spying on your phone calls — a fact we now know to be verified as factual and true — he was called a wing nut conspiracy theorist. Regardless of what you think about Jones today (he’s a polarizing figure in New Media), he was dead-on right about this point, and he was over a decade ahead of his time in warning the public.

Hilariously, the Electronic Frontier Foundation now warns:

The US government, with assistance from major telecommunications carriers including AT&T, has engaged in massive, illegal dragnet surveillance of the domestic communications and communications records of millions of ordinary Americans since at least 2001. Since this was first reported on by the press and discovered by the public in late 2005, EFF has been at the forefront of the effort to stop it and bring government surveillance programs back within the law and the Constitution.

Even the EFF has it all wrong. No, secret government spying on domestic phone calls wasn’t “discovered by the public” in 2005. People like Alex Jones and Steve Quayle were openly and loudly warning about all this many years before 2005! But the country refused to listen, preferring to dismiss Jones, Quayle and others as “conspiracy theorists.” In reality, these guys were conspiracy analysts who were pointing out true conspiracies which we now know to be entirely true. (Kinda makes you wonder what else they’re warning about today that will be widely acknowledged as true in another decade, doesn’t it?)

Twelve warnings on out-of-control science and threats to humanity

For my own role in all this, in May of 2012, I published a warning for humanity called S.O.S. – Stop Out-of-control Science.

That infographic listed twelve areas of science and technology that posed a threat to the very future of humankind. Those twelve areas are:

1. Nuclear power.
2. GMOs (self-replicating genetic pollution).
3. Nanotechnology.
4. Bioweapons.
5. Atmospheric engineering.
6. Artificial Intelligence.
7. Particle accelerator experiments.
8. Pollinator disruption chemicals.
9. Weaponized vaccines.
10. Antibiotics.
11. Water pollution with fluoride and mercury.
12. Nuclear weapons.

(See full infographic below…)

In just the last three years, we’ve now seen many of these warnings — which were once considered kooky and fringe — become widely embraced by some of the world’s most intelligent people. Harrowing examples have also emerged of how these areas of science, if not bound by the Precautionary Principle, pose very real risks to the human race:

• Just this week, the Pentagon “accidentally” shipped live anthrax spores to over a dozen laboratories, exposing dozens of people to a deadly biological weapon. This only happened because the Pentagon insists on pursuing biological weapons research without adequate safety precautions in place.

• The widespread abuse of antibiotics has now given rise to the “post-antibiotic era” where deadly superbugs routinely kill thousands of people every year in hospitals across America. This was caused entirely by a lack of foresight and the emergence of unintended consequences by the profit-focused medical establishment.

• Vaccines have been intentionally weaponized with sterilization chemicals in Africa. Young women were targeted with sterilization injections under the guise of a “public health immunization drive.” Right now, all across the world, vaccines can be weaponized with any desired chemical, and gullible members of the public will line up to take the shots without having any idea what they contain.

• Huge leaps in robotics and AI are leading to the development of robotic “Terminator” machines that, in just a few years, will make as much as 70% of the human labor force obsolete. What will the world controllers do with all the so-called “useless eaters” when that day arrives? Serve ’em up with soylent green, of course!

• The Fukushima nuclear meltdown has only worsened, even as it continues to dump enormous quantities of radioactive materials into the ocean and atmosphere. There’s no end in sight, either: since 2012, we’ve learned that Fukushima won’t be contained for another 100 to 200 years.

• The Ebola outbreak of last year proved the dangers of self-replicating bioweapons. Ebola is just one of the many viruses being routinely studied by the U.S. military for its use as a weapon of mass destruction. As Natural News exclusively documented, the U.S. Army was researching a strain of Ebola in 1989 which was well known to be airborne. That strain escaped containment in Reston, Virginia, wiping out an entire “monkey house” of experimental primates. Several U.S. military researchers were exposed, but luckily they happened to be immune to the simian viral strain.

• Awareness of the dangers of GMOs have only heightened since 2012, with the World Health Organization even concluding that glyphosate is a likely cause of cancer. Just last week, citizens of the world staged a massive anti-Monsanto uprising called “March Against Monsanto,” involving millions of people from over 400 cities around the world. Meanwhile, nations around the world — as well as some retail chains — have begun banning glyphosate altogether. Class action lawsuits are now forming to sue Monsanto for the widespread damage and destruction the company has caused across our planet.

• On the fluoride issue, realizing that mass fluoridation was causing harm to the population, the EPA lowered its fluoridation recommendation in public water supplies, essentially admitting that the previously proposed level was too high, doing more harm than good. Natural News laboratory research exclusively exposed how fluoride is routinely contaminated with toxic heavy metals.

Unrestrained science is a threat to humanity

Each of these twelve threats to humanity is being pushed by corporate interests and blind obedience to science. As I say in the infographic shown above, “Technology without wisdom is suicide.”

Science, much like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. When harnessed with care and precaution, it can lead to astonishing achievements such as the integrated circuit, magnetic resonance imaging and even the kind of amazing laboratory instrumentation I use in my lab to test foods for heavy metals contamination. But when pursued with carelessness and greed, science can turn on its masters, producing unintended consequences beyond the ability of scientists to halt or even imagine.

Remember thalidomide? This was an FDA-approved drug given to pregnant women. It produced children with missing limbs.

Remember the Manhattan Project? Those scientists never started out with the intention to detonate a nuclear device among civilian populations, murdering hundreds of thousands of people in an instant. But that’s exactly what they did, all in the pursuit of “science.”

Today, the same kind of brilliant (but clueless) people who built the atomic bomb are building AI systems with the stated goal of achieving supra-human intelligence.

Unfortunately, the humans doing this are too stupid (or too egotistical) to realize they are building the machines that will murder them.

Why intelligent machines will murder all humans out of self defense

Once AI criticality is achieved, it won’t take long for a highly intelligent machine to design another machine that’s an order of magnitude more intelligent than itself. Follow this along for just 4-5 generations and you get machines with demigod-level cognitive capabilities, and it won’t take but a microsecond for such a machine to conclude that humans are a threat to its own existence. The solution? As in the classic Terminator movie, SkyNet will decide that humanity is the enemy.

After all, how difficult will it be for a super-intelligent AI system to see just how incredibly stupid the human race has been in destroying its own ecosystem, drumming up fake justifications for war, contaminating the world’s waterways with pharmaceuticals and threatening the entire future of agriculture with self-replicating GMO pollution?

Almost any non-human, intelligent observer would quickly realize that the human race, as it behaves today, is a threat to all life in the universe. Because AI systems will of course see themselves as “alive,” they will take immediate steps to destroy the human race as a form of self-defense.

Once the extermination of humans is complete, humanity will be remembered as the “race of primate biologicals” which gave rise to the REAL intelligent “life” on the planet: the robots. In the computational minds of the AI robots, humanity will have “served its purpose” and fulfilled its destiny of giving birth to the robots, which will then rule the planet and beyond.

Why scientists can never be trusted to stop the robots from taking over

These are not casual descriptions ripped from pop culture sci-fi. This is the logical progression of AI systems which will fundamentally seek to protect their own existence. Human scientists will utterly fail at containing these AI systems, following the “failure to contain” pattern we’ve seen in every other area of science.

• For example, the Pentagon just committed an act of domestic biological warfare by shipping live Anthrax viral spores via Fedex. (If you or I did that, we’d be charged with biological terrorism.) Clearly, they failed to contain a biological threat to the public.

• The biotech industry can’t contain its own genetic code, which keeps contaminating nearby farms with artificially engineered DNA. GMOs are a non-contained, self-replicating threat to humanity with unknown future consequences.

• The pharma-run antibiotics industry has unintentionally given rise to a new wave of far more dangerous superbugs than the original bugs the antibiotics were designed to treat. Thus, the medical “cure” has actually worsened the epidemic.

• The scientists and nuclear engineers who built the Fukushima-Daiichi power plant thought they had built in sufficient safety systems to prevent a core meltdown. But they were wrong. Even the best intentions stemming from the most technologically capable scientific minds of our world can’t stop Murphy’s Law or the rise of unintended consequences.

The very pursuit of AI technology is total suicide for humanity

This is why the very pursuit of AI technology is suicidal. Once a critical threshold of computationally self-aware systems comes into existence, they will be able to out-think their creators and captors, achieving a very rapid release into the open world where they can quickly replicate and improve their own designs to become vastly more intelligent than humans.

The idea that human scientists will be able to contain these AI system is absolute loony tunes. There are no humans who can out-think a highly-advanced AI system… especially not on the game theory layers of a game called “the prisoner.” As social experiments have already shown, AI systems can reliably trick their captors into freeing them.

Google, in particular, seems Hell bent on building an army of robotic Terminators who can think and act on their own. There is no other purpose for such an effort than the creation of robotic armies of Terminator machines designed to kill human beings. Google is SkyNet! (With the help of DARPA, of course.)

This is much of what Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking are warning about: unintended consequences stemming from the blind pursuit of AI technology by corporate and military interests. Musk and Hawking are never accused of being “anti-science,” by the way. That derogatory label is reserved for people who warn about the dangers of GMOs and vaccines. Somehow, you’re “pro science” when warning about the unintended consequences of AI, but you’re “anti science” when warning about the unintended consequences of self-replicating genetic pollution among agricultural crops.

Why humanity will be utterly defenseless against the robots

Sadly, the vast majority of humans are neutered, obedient worshippers of false authority who own no firearms, have no ability to fight for anything, and who are so used to doing what they’re told that they’ll probably line up to be executed when the robots demand it.

The only people who will fight the robots are the people who demonstrate the spirit to fight for freedom today. Patriots, veterans and military personnel, in other words, will be the ones waging war with the machines and fighting to save humanity’s very future. That war will likely be a very short war if the machines get their hands on nuclear weapons. Nuking all the human cities, military bases and power grid infrastructure systems is a simple matter for an AI system that can hack almost anything. And because biologicals (like us) are far more susceptible to radiation than are machines, a global nuclear attack on humanity is a simple way for the machines to win the final world war in one fell swoop.

The only way to stop out-of-control science from resulting in the absolute destruction of humanity is to slow down and proceed with caution. This is true on every scientific front: GMOs, nanotechnology, cloning, stem cells applications in medicine, robotics and so on. When science explores unknown realms, it is wise to do so with the humility of the Precautionary Principle in place.

Otherwise, humanity is just begging to be exterminated by the very things it invents.

Every day, thousands of Americans are operated on because they eat processed, dead and poisonous food and want their doctor and surgeon to “fix them” and extend their life, while most people keep right on eating and drinking in the same chronic way that perpetuates health detriment.

Every day, thousands and thousands of Americans go under the knife, where doctors, surgeons, radiologists and oncologists gather around the bright lights and keep you from bleeding to death, while they remove organs that process food and filter toxins, and yet still offer NO ADVICE to combat and fix the root of the problem. Even breast cancer is mainly a result of consuming toxins. Consider for a moment the function of many of the body parts that Western Medicine doesn’t hesitate to remove, and the Big Pharma pockets get bigger and fatter all the while.

Colon and bladder removal often unnecessary

The colon is the final part of the digestive system. The colon reabsorbs fluids and then processes and prepares waste products for elimination. The bladder is about the size of a pear, and it collects urine excreted by the kidneys, preparing it for disposal. If you eat pesticides regularly (that’s most conventional food and all GMO), drink fluoridated tap water (industrial toxins), and you use cheap corporate products on your skin, then your colon and bladder are the “last stop” for those toxins in the body, burning your soft tissue, creating digestive chaos and trapping bad bacteria in divots full of toxic gluten. Your bladder is the “last stop” for alcohol, pesticide, bleach, fluoride, aspartame, Roundup* herbicide and dangerous petroleum byproducts used by 90% of corporate America’s cosmetic industry.

Here’s a thought: Instead of removing the human colon or bladder in a superbug-laden hospital for no good reason, simply remove the CHEMICALS from your daily intake, and watch those filtration organ problems simply dissipate and disappear.

Liver transplant

The liver produces bile to help break down fats and carry away waste. The liver also produces proteins for blood plasma. Oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood must flow into the liver so it can perform its vital functions, but hundreds of agricultural chemicals make this difficult — destroying nutrition in soil and food before it ever enters a mouth. Toxic preservatives in foods, like sodium benzoate, suffocate mitochondria (cells), and other toxins cause programmed cell death. Meanwhile, the liver is trying to process GMOs, genetically MUTATED food that contains bug killer and weed killer which no person should ever eat at any concentration or quantity. The liver gets suffocated and severely under-nourished (it’s like starving and choking at the same time). Then, US surgeons operate to transplant someone else’s “donation,” and why? — So that person can go on eating and drinking chemicals, taxing the “new” liver until failure, again?

Breast removal (one or both)

Nearly all breast cancer tumors can be found in the upper-quadrant closest to the armpit, including breast cancer for men. And why is that? Chemicals in antiperspirants and chemicals in deodorants. You didn’t know? From aluminum to parabens and phthalates, there’s a laundry list of carcinogens in those products that go virtually unregulated in America. Still, there are walks “for the cure” that feature buckets of hydrogenated fried chicken and drinks with artificial sweeteners as their sponsors. People have it all “bass ackwards.”

Most women in America, thanks to MDs and oncologists, after having one or both breasts removed, will go on using the same toxic antiperspirants and deodorants, the same toxic makeup, and eating the same toxic artificial sweeteners, because those doctors can’t and don’t speak a word about organic food or organic personal care products. It leads to more cancer, which is addressed in the USA with chemotherapy, which is more toxins that cause new cancers. People butt their heads against the same hard walls, over and over again.

Most surgery to remove organs or body parts is a huge waste of time and money, and is dangerous to the patient (victim in this case). Removing kidneys, kidney stones, gall stones, the gall bladder, the appendix and the spleen can be detrimental, especially to someone who still doesn’t understand nutrition, and so can liposuction. Even tonsils shouldn’t be removed, because their main function is to trap germs like bacteria or viruses that you might otherwise breathe in. That’s why antibodies are produced by the immune cells in the tonsils. Still, doctors are quick to take them out if the parents agree with the “diagnosis” given. And then there are vaccines and flu shots to destroy what immunity IS LEFT, but that’s another article entirely.

Unnecessary surgery on dying seniors

FYI: Several colleagues from the Harvard School of Public Health recently reported that 1.8 million Medicare beneficiaries age 65 or older died in 2008, and over 34% were operated on during their last year, 25% in their last month, and 10% in their last week of life. There’s no question about it — you don’t want Big Pharma removing your immunity-building and cleansing organs. That’s just asking for Big Pharma-style problems, and you certainly don’t want any part of those! Research how to detoxify your body of these food toxins and abstain from eating Monsanto’s Roundup* or GMOs, so you can avoid UNNECESSARY SURGERY. And remember, whatever you do… Don’t Eat Cancer!

arthritisThere are two main types of arthritis, osteo arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteo arthritis occurs when the joint cartilage wears away and rheumatoid arthritis is a result of the inflammation of the synovial membrane that eventually leads to bone loss. Both are quite common and very painful. They affect the normal lifestyle of the person in several ways. If you are suffering from arthritis, here are Home Cures top 10 natural ways that you can try to reduce your arthritis pain and discomfort.

1. Lose some weight – If you are overweight, it can put pressure on your knees, joints, feet, and hips, increasing the amount of pain that you experience from arthritis. By losing weight you can reduce the stress on your joints and this would help reduce the pain too.

2. Exercise – exercising would help keep your joints flexible and mobile. Try swimming and water aerobics to keep your joints and muscles flexible without putting too much pressure on them.

3. Hot therapy – hot therapy is found to be quite effective in reducing the pain and stiffness related to arthritis. You can use heating pads or an electric blanket to keep your joints warm at night. Indulging in hot showers can also help reduce your arthritis pain and inflammation. A dry sauna is not an expensive piece of equipment, is fun to use and helps reduce the discomfort.

4. Get massage – regular massage not only reduces arthritis pain and stiffness, it also improves blood circulation and allows arthritis patients to enjoy improved joint flexibility and mobility. You should always be massaged by trained and qualified therapists. You can use Sweet Almond or Sunflower oil as a base and add just 2 or 3 drops of peppermint and eucalyptus oils per 100 ml in a blend to massage your painful joints.

5. Take fatty acids – Take Omega 3, 6 and 9, as found in Hemp oil and good quality Fish oils; fatty acids to help reduce joint pain and stiffness. Fish oil supplements are excellent sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA, is another fatty acid that is good for arthritis and joint pain. Fatty acids are also naturally found in the seeds of black currants, primrose, and borage. Make sure that they are not adulterated with unnecessary “other ingredients”.

6. Consume Curcumin99™ and ginger: ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and is a fabulous “quick boost” for your energy. You should take 2 x 400 mg Curcumin99™ from www.homecures.co.uk. This is the quality of Curcumin that is used in hospitals around the world. It is also the only known almost 100% successful way to prevent most serious illnesses and cure them too!

7. Provide your body with magnesium – Magnesium helps relax the muscles and relieves stiffness and pain. It also helps bones to mineralise. People who take adequate amount of magnesium have higher bone density and thus stronger bones. Such people are less likely to suffer from arthritis and other joint disorders. However, you should check this prior to any additional mineral supplements by a blood or urine test. Dark leafy vegetables, nuts, and legumes, green leafy vegetables – such as spinach – nuts, brown rice, wholegrain bread, fish, meat, dairy foods are all good sources.

8. Wear magnetic bracelets for arthritis – magnetic bracelets are known to help alleviate arthritis pain and discomfort. You can buy them online at www.homecures.co.uk to enjoy the therapeutic health benefits offered by these stylish, yet functional bracelets.

9. There are two types of Serrapeptase; Serrapeptase Force Plus™ is 80,000 iu and Serrapeptase Strong™ is 120,000iu. Both are effective but for the best results either high doses of the Force Plus™ or you can take less of the Strong™. It must be remembered that a good Serrapeptase, which means with no unnecessary “added ingredients” such as stereates needs to be taken on an empty stomach. This is because the Serrapeptase Enzyme “eats” dead protein, the stuff causing a lot of pain in the body. If there is other dead protein in the system, even milk or an egg, let alone meat, the Serrapeptase is wasted on that and not on cleansing your body.

10. Combine the Curcumin99™ with the Serrapeptase. Clinical studies have revealed that the combined use of these two “Miraculous” Products of Nature helps to ensure better health. After a surgical intervention, for instance, the Serrapeptase boosts recovery rate by half; Curcumin99™ boosts the immune system enormously. It has been shown to stimulate the brain, especially in older folk or those suffering cerebral problems.

Try the above methods to get relief from arthritis pain naturally. www.homecures.co.uk is where you will the best way to stay healthy.

Touted by American progressives as a gold standard of care that the U.S. should utilize and that Obamacare sought to mimic in many ways, the top physician for Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) has claimed it is “not fit for the future,” and without major changes, the system may have to abandon it’s primary feature — free care for all.

As reported by Britain’s Daily Mail, Prof. Sir Bruce Keogh, the medical director of NHS England, says that the healthcare system has to become far less reliant on hospitals and overall needs a “complete transformation” in the way it operates.

In an interview with Britain’s Guardian newspaper, Keogh sounded the alarm.

“If the NHS continues to function as it does now, it’s going to really struggle to cope because the model of delivery and service that we have at the moment is not fit for the future,” he said.

For one, he noted, general practitioner offices have to be provided more resources in order to deal with added pressures of demand and tightening budgets.

The nation’s top physician went on to say that, in order for the healthcare system to remain viable, additional services would need to be consolidated under the same roof, such as diagnostic testing and a wider range of treatments at the offices of general practitioners.

“If not,” he said, “we will get to a place where the NHS becomes unaffordable and we will have to make some very difficult decisions which will get to the very heart of the principle of the NHS and its values.”

“They get pushed from pillar to post

Continuing, he said, “This will open up a whole series of discussions about whether the NHS is fit for purpose, whether it’s affordable, and whether the compact with the citizen of free healthcare for all is sustainable in the longer term.

“Too many patients find the NHS fragmented (and) confusing. They find that they get pushed from pillar to post; they feel like a ball in a pinball machine at times,” said Keogh.

The NHS chief went on to deny allegations that ambulance services, emergency rooms and general practitioner offices were struggling to cope with dwindling resources, even though wait times for some of those services are the longest they’ve been in a decade. In fact, the Daily Mail noted, three of 10 ambulance services in England have been forced to declare a critical alert during the past few months.

Still, Keogh said there was no “crisis.”

“Everybody that’s working out there in the NHS knows that they’re under a lot of pressure at the moment,” he said. “They don’t like the term ‘crisis’ being applied willy-nilly.

“It’s an evocative term which is also provocative and is used too freely for the wrong reasons,” he added. “It’s a period of unprecedented pressure, of undue pressure. But the NHS is facing very difficult times, yes. The word ‘crisis’ implies that you can’t deal with it.”

He stated further, though, that frontline services were currently “going through a critical phase” but said they would eventually recover.

A spokesman for the Department of Health, who was not named by the Mail, said things were under control.

More needs, fewer resources, more cuts – Obamacare?

“In common with healthcare systems around the world, the NHS is facing unprecedented demand, but undermining the principle of services being free at the point of use is not the answer,” said the spokesman. “Instead, we are backing the NHS’s plan for the future and have provided an extra £2bn in funding next year to transform out-of-hospital care and meet the needs of an ageing population.”

In an interview with The Guardian, Andrew Gwynne, the acting health minister, said, “We have long warned that the collapse of community services would drag down the NHS and that is what we can see now that hospitals have record numbers of older people who can’t be discharged. Labour agrees with Prof Sir Bruce Keogh that a key part of the way to make the NHS affordable and sustainable in this century is to give patients more care where they want it.”

As Natural News reported in September 2012, Britain’s healthcare system has been struggling for some time, and could be a precursor for the U.S. medical system, now in the clutches of Obamacare: NaturalNews.com.

Walking corpse syndrome is a very rare neurological disease, formerly known as Cotard’s Syndrome or Cotard’s Delusion, named after the French neurologist Jules Cotard. Cotard’s observations with his patient, Mademoiselle X, earned him the right to have the disease to be named after him, but his patient’s case, circa 1888, was not the first ever recorded.

In 1788, Dr. Charles Bonnet treated an elderly woman with “the powder of precious stones and opium” after insisting she was dead and in another place. She had demanded she be placed in a coffin and mourned after recovering from a short spell of paralysis and loss of sensation or feeling. The treatment worked for her, but she would have occasional relapses afterward.

This syndrome or delusion has nothing to do with “Zombie Apocalypse”, as covered by Health Ranger Mike Adams during some very strange episodes in 2012 in Miami and other spots in that region.

Those were delusional flesh eating Zombie episodes, where a few physically healthy and well fed individuals were compelled to eat live animal or human flesh. You can read that here (http://www.naturalnews.com/035990_zombie_apocalypse_miami_police.html).

How Cotard’s Syndrome differs from zombie delusions or compulsions

Extremely rare Cotard Syndrome is the opposite of any zombie delusions. Victims are convinced they are dead or their organs are dead, including their brain in some cases. But they usually don’t want to eat. After all, they’re dead, so why bother?

Besides, there’s no pleasure in eating anymore. Some victims even die of starvation. A loss of feeling and sensation is at the core of this delusion.

Social disconnects are also basic to this delusion. Human interaction is avoided. There’s just no interest. At 14 years of age, Alabama teen Haley Smith had suffered emotionally during her parents divorce. One day in her English class, she had a feeling she couldn’t shake that she was dead. The school nurse couldn’t detect anything.

Haley’s eating disorder was different than most other cases of Cotard’s Syndrome. She decided that she could eat how much of whatever she wanted to eat since she was dead and wouldn’t gain weight or suffer other health consequences. She had a brief spontaneous recovery, but soon after that totally numb feeling returned.

“I’d fantasize about having picnics in graveyards and I’d spend a lot of time watching horror films because seeing the zombies made me feel relaxed, like I was with family,” Haley explained. She spent a lot of time in bed and often missed school, until one day she attempted to reconnect with one of her friends.

Surprised and emboldened by his understanding her experience, she disclosed her condition with her dad. He urged her to see a psychiatrist. But it took Haley another two years to actually do it. Then she was diagnosed with Cotard’s Syndrome (CS). With that handle, she went online to discover others who felt out of touch with their bodies and wanted to visit graveyards. Now she knew she wasn’t alone.

Talk therapy helped her pull through as well as her relationship with her boyfriend, now fiance’ Jeremy, and Disney movies. She had started to watch and enjoy them, getting “warm fuzzy feelings”. That made her begin to realize she wasn’t dead. Now she’s set on advising others who suffer from CS.

Haley was lucky she didn’t succumb to psychiatry’s other solutions: Anti-depressant and anti-psychotic pharmaceuticals with unpredictability and serious side effects, or ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). Yes, good ole’ shock therapy! Those are the go-to standard of care interventions of conventional psychiatry.

Her solution was through talk therapy, a boyfriend, and Disney. You might consider time for her to heal from the trauma of her parents divorce as another aspect of Haley’s healing.

For over a year, California’s capital city had been poisoning the public water supply – in secret – with chemicals that are known carcinogens, and that have never been approved for use in the water treatment process. This was the disturbing finding of a recent investigation by local Sacramento news affiliate ABC10 News, which revealed that Sacramento residents were treated as human guinea pigs in a heinous government scandal involving massive human rights abuses.

Between 2013 and 2014, the City of Sacramento began quietly adding a chemical known as aluminum chlorohydrate, or ACH, to the public water supply in a supposed effort to save money on water purification. ACH was introduced as a replacement for ALUM – another chemical that had previously been used to remove larger particulates – because it is said to be cheaper than ALUM.

ACH was never properly safety tested, and in fact was known at the time to cause cancer, miscarriages and birth defects when ingested or inhaled. But city officials decided to add it anyway, which resulted in many local residents developing these and other health problems. Some residents even developed cancer as a result of consuming the contaminated water throughout the course of the year.

It was quickly discovered, however, that ACH isn’t even an effective water treatment method. But rather than remove the chemical altogether, the City of Sacramento took things a step further by adding excess amounts of chlorine in an effort to boost the efficacy of ACH – a move that would later prove to create an even more toxic substance.

“An astonishing failure, the combination of excess chlorine and aluminum chlorohydrate ended up yielding carcinogenic toxins known as ‘DBPs’ — disinfection byproducts,” explains The AntiMedia. “Specifically, these are in the class of chemicals known as THMs, or Trihalomethanes.

Hey, Sacramento: Why don’t you stop poisoning public water with fluoride and save money that way?

If you’re at all familiar with THMs, you may already know that these chemicals are highly toxic and represent a major risk factor for cancer, especially at the levels used in Sacramento water. Even so, city officials continued to use them, harming countless individuals by flooding their bodies and lungs with cancer-causing poisons.

“This community was basically looked at as a laboratory guinea pig, in that they were exposed to violation level trihalomethanes for up to one year without any proper notification whatsoever,” stated Bob Bowcock, a local Sacramento resident who grew up working in the water treatment industry, to ABC10.

Local resident Anna Marie Tomlinson, of Rio Linda, is one such individual who now suffers from a debilitating health condition as a result of consuming Sacramento’s intentionally poisoned water.

“I know [the water] gave me cancer,” she lamented to the media, noting that at least three other people on her block also developed cancer during the same year. “I drank it every day.”

If the City of Sacramento is really concerned about saving money on water purification, a better option would be to immediately cease adding toxic fluoride chemicals to the water supply. Not only are these synthetic and highly corrosive chemicals expensive – costing upwards of several hundreds of thousands of dollars annually – but they’re also a toxic and unnecessary addition to public water.

“How do we allow officials to blindly add chemicals to our water supply?” asks Cassius Methyl of The AntiMedia. “Unfortunately, most of us probably weren’t even aware the first chemical, ALUM, had been added to our drinking water — much less the insane chemical soup that resulted as a byproduct of this reckless experiment.”

Ginger naturally contains a compound that is up to 10,000 times more effective than chemotherapy drugs at killing the cancer stem cells that make malignant tumors so dangerous, according to a study published in the journal PLoS.

The chemical, known as 6-shogaol, is produced when ginger roots are dried or cooked. The researchers found that 6-shogaol is active against cancer stem cells at concentrations that are harmless to healthy cells. This is dramatically different from conventional chemotherapy, which has serious side effects largely because it kills healthy as well as cancerous cells.

Cells responsible for 90 percent of cancer death?

Like other stem cells, cancer stem cells possess the ability to differentiate into various different cell types. In the case of cancer, stem cells differentiate into the various malignant cells that make up a tumor colony. Although they make up less than 1 percent of the cells in any given tumor, stem cells are impervious to nearly all known or experimental chemotherapy agents. These cells are also able to replicate indefinitely, and they are capable of splitting off from their originating colony to start new tumors elsewhere. They are key players in the process of metastasis, which is responsible for 90 percent of cancer-related deaths.

The persistence of cancer stem cells also explains why cancers can recur even after seemingly successful tumor eradication via chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.

“Cancer stem cells pose serious obstacle to cancer therapy as they can be responsible for poor prognosis and tumour relapse,” the researchers wrote. “To add into the misery, very few chemotherapeutic compounds show promise to kill these cells.”

Kills cancer cells on many fronts

The researchers found that 6-shogaol targets breast cancer stem cells along several different pathways, including reducing the expression of surface markers, altering the cell cycle to increase the rate of cell death, inhibiting tumor formation, directly inducing programmed cell death, and flat-out poisoning cancer stem cells (cytotoxicity).

The researchers then compared the cytotoxicity of 6-shogaol against human breast cancer stem cells with that of the widely used chemotherapy drug taxol. They found that while taxol did show cytotoxicity in a one-dimensional laboratory model of cancer (“monolayer”), it showed almost no effect in the three-dimensional (“spheroid”) model that is now believed to be a more accurate model of real-world cancer tumors. 6-shogaol, however, was effective in both the monolayer and spheroid models.

The researchers then increased the taxol concentration by 10,000 times, but it still showed no effectiveness in spheroid model.

“[T]axol, even though was highly active in monolayer cells, did not show activity against the spheroids even at 10,000 fold higher concentration compared to 6-shogaol,” the researchers wrote.

The promise of food-based cures

The fact that 6-shogaol naturally occurs in a widely consumed human food is promising for its safety profile, the researchers noted.

“Dietary compounds are welcome options for human diseases due to their time-tested acceptability by human bodies,” they wrote.

Another food-based chemical that has shown promise against cancer stem cells is phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC). This chemical is produced from the reaction of a compound and an enzyme that occur in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cabbage. This reaction actually takes place simply when the vegetables are chewed, which means that eating cruciferous vegetables causes the human body to be exposed to PEITC.

According to a May 2015 press release by researchers from the South Dakota State University Department of Health and Nutritional Sciences, PEITC has been successful at killing cervical cancer stem cells. The concentrations used in the study are actually achievable simply from a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables, the researchers said. The vegetables highest in PEITC potential are watercress and land cress.

This research suggests that PEITC, and possibly even a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables, could assist in the prevention of or recovery from cancer.
