World Mercury Project gets questions about the number of vaccines given to young children in America today. Different articles cite different numbers and the totals can be confusing. This article and chart are designed to clarify the vaccine schedule and explain why the numbers may not always “add up.” To be accurate, wording about total numbers of vaccines should include phrases like, “may receive up to” or “typically” or “between X and Y” number of vaccines. The individual numbers for any given child will vary depending on the specific vaccines used in his pediatrician’s practice or clinic. Continue reading

The rate of Alzheimer’s disease in America is expected to double by 2060 to 15 million, a new study revealed. That is up from this year’s rate of 6.08 million Americans that have the debilitating brain disease.
This study – the first of its kind – estimated that 47 million Americans have early signs of Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment. Continue reading
If you have high blood pressure, you might want to seriously consider changing your diet before you start taking on the risks of medication as a new study shows a heart-healthy diet can be every bit as effective.
In a study that involved more than 400 adults with stage 1 high blood pressure, the combination of a low-salt diet and the heart-healthy “DASH” diet was found to lower systolic blood pressure dramatically. This effect was particularly pronounced in people who have higher baseline systolic readings. Continue reading
About 40 percent of all cancers in the United States — more than 630,000 in all — are associated with excess weight, health officials said Tuesday, urging a renewed focus on prevention.
In a nation where 71 percent of adults are either overweight or obese, the findings by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “are a cause for concern,” said the agency’s director Brenda Fitzgerald. Continue reading
Once again, an out-of-control industry is threatening public health on a mammoth scale
Over a 40-year career, Philadelphia attorney Daniel Berger has obtained millions in settlements for investors and consumers hurt by a rogues’ gallery of corporate wrongdoers, from Exxon to R.J. Reynolds Tobacco. But when it comes to what America’s prescription drug makers have done to drive one of the ghastliest addiction crises in the country’s history, he confesses amazement.
“I used to think that there was nothing more reprehensible than what the tobacco industry did in suppressing what it knew about the adverse effects of an addictive and dangerous product,” says Berger, “but I was wrong. The drug makers are worse than Big Tobacco.” Continue reading

The UN’s cancer research agency’s battle with other cancer scientists and agencies, as well as the US Congress, has taken some interesting turns recently. Not only is IARC the only agency claiming that the active chemical in the herbicide RoundUp is carcinogenic – the process it used to reach that determination is fraught with manipulated data and science, altered reports, conflicts of interest and collusion with activist groups and predatory class action lawyers.
America’s own National Institutes of Health has also gotten entangled in this mess, because the director of its National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences is closely aligned with IARC and anti-chemical activist groups.
The House Science Committee has been trying for months to investigate and fix these problems, but has been met with stonewalling at every turn. The latest example of this is detailed in below. ~ Paul Driessen
December 3, 2017 – CVS Health has agreed to buy Aetna for about $69 billion in cash and stock, a landmark deal that would change the health-care landscape in the country by bringing a large insurer and a big provider of pharmacy services under one roof.
In an agreement that has been months in the making and is likely to be announced later Sunday, Aetna stockholders are to receive $207 per share, $145 in cash and $62 in stock, according to people familiar with the matter. (WSJ)
NOTE: Would it not seem to you to be somewhat Monopolistic? Now a major retailer of prescription drugs will be in control of Aetna Insurance and both will be under the thumbnail of BIG Pharma and the Food and Drug Administration. ~ Ed.
ADD and ADHD are both constantly touted by parents and teachers as the reasoning behind why children are unable to focus. And often times, the “cure” seems to be a slew of pharmaceutical medications that numb the children to their surroundings.
Rarely is the cure ever to cut down on sugar or to consider that a child’s brain and focus simply isn’t fully developed. And never has the cure been enacting a program that extends the amount of time kids have recess. Continue reading
An important legal showdown is looming for an obscure, United Nations-related research agency that is claiming that the active ingredient in the world’s most popular herbicide, marketed in the U.S. by Monsanto as Roundup, is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” It is the same agency that once claimed that coffee was a possible carcinogen. Continue reading
The National Sleep Foundation recommends an average of eight hours of sleep per night for adults, but sleep scientist Matthew Walker says that too many people are falling short of the mark.
“Human beings are the only species that deliberately deprive themselves of sleep for no apparent gain,” Walker says. “Many people walk through their lives in an underslept state, not realizing it.” Continue reading
“Life-changing” thyroid pill manufacturer spikes price by 5,000%
The National Health Service (United Kingdom) is eyeing the cessation of the incessant prescription of Liothyronine, a drug that is used to treat thyroid disorders, after its manufacturer, Oakville, Canada-based pharmaceutical company Concordia International, increased its retail price by 5,662 percent to $12.45 per tablet ($373.35 per month).

In 2015 and 2016, my two great friends with whom I had served in Viet Nam back in the late 1960’s and I met up for one of our annual get-togethers – this time in California – and a rarity – at the same location two years in a row, where we had the pleasure of some much needed R&R at the Ice Man’s brother’s Beach House at Cayucos by-the-Sea. The three of us LOVE great food, and so it was common for us to travel just South to Morro Bay – usually for breakfast – but sometimes dinner. And then on to one of my favorite places – The Grill Haus in San Luis Opisbo, where I always found the food, the atmosphere and the staff to be a wonder. (Hmmmmm – I wonder what ever happened to… never-mind.)
It was at the Grill Haus that I discovered one of the most amazing dishes (on the plate) that I had ever been privileged to savor – and a variation of that recipe I share with you now. Is it the healthist meal you might ever eat? Probably not – but once in awhile… just once in awhile my friends. As my Great-Grandmother’s would say, “All things in moderation.” ~ Ed.
What causes Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)? I recently read an article written by Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. I know from my years at Harvard that MIT does not employ dummies. So it’s worthwhile reading her “Recipe for Developing AD.” Continue reading

The body’s natural cancer-fighting proteins could be fueling the spread of cancer, scientists have discovered.
A new study focused on prostate cancer to find that the body’s process for removing dead and dying cells causes those harmful cells to spread to bones and other organs by increasing inflammation.
The process’s negative effect in metastatic prostate cancer cells has been poorly understood, but now researchers have discovered a breakthrough by pinpointing the protein.
This understanding could help researchers develop drugs to block the harmful tumor growth in prostate and other cancers, while still allowing the body to clear out the dying cells. Continue reading
In a recent blog, I spoke about mTOR pathways and their connection to cancer. According to Dr. Mercola’s latest book, Fat for Fuel, limiting protein intake is a natural way to down-regulate activity of mTOR pathways and thus lower your risk of tumor growth.
But keeping mTOR pathways at bay isn’t the only way that protein restriction can help you reverse cancer. Recent investigations have discovered the link between excess levels of iron caused by high protein consumption and other factors resulting in a higher risk for breast cancer.
When Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died in July (of 2015), there was not much notice. He did not get an obituary in The New York Times or in most other major media outlets.
Yet Dr. Gonzalez, whom I interviewed in 2003, was a fascinating figure in the world of cancer, walking a tenuous boundary between orthodox oncology and alternative medicine — or what is now called complementary medicine. Though his beliefs and treatments have fierce critics, his insights shed light on the mysteries of cancer. Continue reading
This is What the Government Has Been Hiding From Us for Years
You have probably heard the saying that one apple a day can keep the doctor away. This is certainly true because an apple is one of the healthiest and nutrition-dense fruits in the world. One apple provides an estimated 10 percent or more of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C and fiber. Moreover, these nutrients have anti-cancer properties, boost the immune system, aid in weight loss, and prevent free radical damage. Continue reading
The Cherokee is a Native American tribe that is indigenous to the Southeastern United States. They believe that the Creator has given them a gift of understanding and preserving medicinal herbs.The Cherokee trust the healing and preventative properties of nature’s pharmacy. Because many plants become scarce throughout history, the Cherokee promote proper gathering techniques. The old ones have taught them that if you are gathering, you should only pick every third plant you find. This ensures that enough specimens still remain and will continue to propagate. Here are some of the medicinal plants that were commonly used and foraged for by the Cherokee tribe. Continue reading
Long careers in the military have always been difficult due to the very physical nature of the vocation, but service has been particularly tough in recent years due to overseas contingency operations.
Lengthy wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with operations in Africa, Europe, and Asia, have taken their toll on the men and women who sacrifice much to serve in the armed forces. For many of these vets, they’ve been left with injuries and wounds that will plague them for the rest of their lives. Continue reading
everything new is well forgotten old
My husband is a sixteen-year cancer survivor. When he was diagnosed in 2001 there were no books, no seminars and very few options for Acinic cell cancer. The treatment proposed was very disfiguring with probable facial nerve damage; and the only two people the local surgeon had operated on were dead. Choosing a well known teaching hospital instead, we prepared for surgery number 2—to correct the misplaced surgical drain shooting saliva out of the back of his ear; and to remove the other half of the tumor we were told was left behind from surgery number 1.
You’ve Probably Ignored Them!
Did you know that over 90% of American homes regularly use microwave ovens for meal preparation?
Microwave ovens pulse electromagnetic waves through food, exciting the molecules and causing them to move, vibrate and heat up as they respond to the microwave radiation. Continue reading

According to the conventional wisdom of mainstream medicine, the world’s leading health practitioners in alternative, complementary and integrative medicine have it all wrong and are misinforming millions in practice and on the internet with a barrage of myths and misconceptions they claim are causing more harm to cancer patients.
Could this initiative to sway opinion by leading cancer authorities possibly – just possibly – be related to the revolution that is happening around the world – highlighting the dangers and ineffectiveness of toxic chemotherapy and radiation, bringing cancer cures such as cannabis to the forefront, or the emerging mass markets now creating awareness on the reality of our food and the consequences of the cancer industry itself?

The increasing delay of death for Americans over the last century or so has been extensive and consequential, probably in many profound ways that we do not fully appreciate. In the late 19th century, a newborn white boy would be expected to live, on average, to about 40; now, such a newborn can be expected to live into his late 70s. A ten-year-old then could expect to reach his late 50s and a ten-year-old can now expect to reach his mid-70s. Girls live longer and nonwhites shorter lives, but the trends have been dramatically upward for them, as well. Moreover, Americans’ health, while they lived, also improved markedly. Continue reading
Very few people realize that the worst epidemic ever to hit America, the Spanish Influenza of 1918, was the result of a massive nation-wide vaccination campaign.
The doctors told the people that the flu was caused by germs. Viruses were not known at that time or they would have been blamed. Germs, bacteria and viruses, along with bacilli and a few other invisible organisms are the scapegoats, which the doctors like to blame for the things they do not understand. Continue reading
