We Live In A Jungle

In a 1960 pre-employment physical at L.A. City Schools offices a lady doctor said my blood pressure “Is too high for employment!” She had me sit quietly for a while, reread it and I passed. She told me it was “White coat hypertension and male reaction to a female doctor.” I admit her probing upset me. Continue reading

Sorry, But So Far War on Cancer Has Been a Bust

I recently got into an argument, again, about cancer. The occasion was a talk by one of my colleagues at Stevens Institute, philosopher Gregory Morgan, on the fascinating history of research into cancer-causing viruses.

The occasion was a talk by one of my colleagues at Stevens Institute, philosopher Gregory Morgan, on the fascinating history of research into cancer-causing viruses. In the Q&A, someone commented on how far science has come in understanding cancer’s causes.

With my usual kneejerk negativity, I lamented that all our knowledge about oncogenes, oncoviruses and other cancer catalysts has not translated into significant reductions in mortality. Continue reading

Cancer Link CONFIRMED In Largest Ever Cell Tower Radiation Study

As the rollout of the nationwide 5G cell network moves forward, many concerned scientists and public health experts are raising the alarm about the potential harms of bathing the environment in high frequency electromagnetic energy. This new technology would add another layer of electromagnetic radiation to an already dangerously inundated environment. Continue reading

Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ

At least when it comes to topical application, you have a choice. You can easily buy fluoride-free toothpaste and mouthwash. But you’re stuck with whatever your community puts in the water, and it’s very difficult to filter out of your water once it’s added.

A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas. Continue reading

Insulin’s High Cost Leads To Lethal Rationing

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a terrible way to die. It’s what happens when you don’t have enough insulin. Your blood sugar gets so high that your blood becomes highly acidic, your cells dehydrate, and your body stops functioning.

The price of insulin in the U.S. from leading manufacturers has more than doubled since 2012. That’s put the life-saving hormone out of reach for some people like Smith-Holt’s son Alec. ~ Bram Sable-Smith for NPR

Diabetic ketoacidosis is how Nicole Smith-Holt lost her son. Three days before his payday. Because he couldn’t afford his insulin.

“It shouldn’t have happened,” Smith-Holt says looking at her son’s death certificate on her dining room table in Richfield, Minn. “That cause of death of diabetic ketoacidosis should have never happened.” Continue reading

More than a THIRD of college freshmen have a mental health disorder

Stress levels are sky-rocketing among every age group, and students adjusting to their first year of college may be particularly vulnerable.

All around the world, young adults making their first foray into college and the real world are struggling with depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders

Schools have taken steps to meet the psychological needs of their student body, but a far smaller fraction of the students utilize on-campus counseling services, but that hasn’t curbed rising rates of mental health disorders among students around the world, according to the new Columbia University study. Continue reading

Surgeons Admit That Mammography Is Outdated and Harmful to Women

Studies suggesting that screening tests like mammograms should be used less do not always find receptive audiences. ~ Ed.

 

Every year, millions of women flock to their doctors to get their annual mammograms, a breast cancer screening procedure that involves pressing a woman’s breasts between two metal platforms to scope out tumors. But surgeons everywhere are starting to question the controversial practice, which studies show isn’t even an effective screening tool, and is actually harmful to the bodies of women who receive it. Continue reading

The War on Cancer: Two Sides to Every Story

NOTE: The following was originally offered as a two-part presentation by the author dealing with both the “losing” and what he believed to be the “winning” side of the issue. We present both sides of the war in a single posting for your education and consideration. ~ Ed.

Part I: Losing the War on Cancer

In 1971, President Richard Nixon announced the War on Cancer and promised a cure by the 1977 bicentennial. In 2009 death rates from cancer are significantly increased and…..no cure is forthcoming! The failure of chemotherapy to control cancer has become apparent even to the oncology establishment. Scientific American featured a recent cover story entitled: “The War on Cancer — it’s Being Lost.” In it, eminent epidemiologist John C. Bailar III, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McGill University cited the relentless increase in cancer deaths in the face of growing use of toxic chemotherapy. He concluded that scientists must look in new directions if they are ever to make progress against this unremitting killer.

Cancer incidences have grown from 1 in 500 to nearly 1 in 2 today!

MY CANCER: Fuel For The Fire

Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith…of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire…may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. ~ 1 Peter 1:6-7

What fuel has the Refiner added to the fire as He works to reveal Jesus in and through you? He has recently stoked the fire under me! I’m encouraged when I remember that when a refiner purifies gold, he melts it in a pot over the fire. He keeps turning up the heat until the dross, or impurities, rise to the surface. He then bends over the gold to skim off the dross, and continues doing so, until he can see his face reflected in the surface of the gold. Continue reading

How many people have died from chemotherapy, not cancer?

If you cripple your immunity, what have you got? If you wipe out all of your good bacteria in your gut, what’s left? Did you know that if you survive with chemotherapy and cancer for five years you are statistically entered in the “cancer books” as a survivor, even if you drop dead the next day due to chemo-overload, organ strangulation or total lack of immunity? The chemotherapy and radiation treatments are leading to death stemming from the simple common cold or the flu. That’s right, then pneumonia takes over, because you have no more white blood cells to fight off infections. Who knew? Continue reading

Health‘ Nazi’s on Patrol

In the age of ‘Truth and Fairness‘ we are quickly finding that neither exists – unless it lines the pockets of BIG Pharma and the AMA. Everywhere we look we are being blocked from truth – albeit – the alternative to what the controllers want us to see and have access to through search engines such as Google, or so-called “social” networks like FaceBook. It matters not whether the subject is news, history or health. They are out to control it all.

Over the past six months, we have seen a marked decline in our readership. Is it censorship? We believe so, and what follows is a clear indicator of same. Continue reading

Coffee Causing Cancer??

Cup with Bonnie

Scientists have been doing research on a coffee-cancer link for a very long time. Meta-stidies looking at all the scientific literature up to date have clearly shown that not only there is no association between coffee-drinking and cancer, but there is actually a mild inverse correlation between drinking coffee and some type of cancer. In other words, not only does coffee not give you cancer, but it may mildly protect you from some types of cancer, such as breast and liver cancer. Continue reading
