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.

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.

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!
When it comes to the most widely used adjuvant ingredient found within vaccines, aluminum, many questions have yet to be answered, particularly when it comes to where the aluminum goes after injection, an issue known as biopersistence. Continue reading
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
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
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
Chives are far more than the little green bits on your baked potato—they have numerous health benefits that make them a worthy addition to a variety of dishes. Add to that the fact that they are easy to grow and maintain, and it’s obvious that chives deserve a place at your table. Continue reading

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
The report recommends that pediatricians take a more active role in explaining to parents the value of childhood play.
Kids need to play. It seems like an obvious statement, as central to childhood as eating peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches and chasing fireflies. For generations, parents have known that a play-filled childhood is essential for healthy physical and mental development. They didn’t need to read the latest research findings on play. They didn’t need experts to tell them it’s important. They just knew it. Kids are designed by nature to play, and parents have generally let them. Continue reading
For 30 years, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) broke the law regarding vaccine safety, and no one noticed or cared.
Then two men came along and discovered the scandal: Robert F Kennedy, Jr. (twitter), head of the World Mercury Project, and Del Bigtree (twitter 1, twitter 2, FB, web), the producer of the film Vaxxed. They filed papers in court, and they won their case. Continue reading
Study finds feces is common on toothbrushes in shared bathrooms
It’s enough to put you off brushing your teeth altogether.
According to a new study, there is a 60 per cent chance your toothbrush is covered in poo, regardless of how well you clean it.
And that’s not all. If you share a bathroom, around 80 per cent of that faeces will belong to another person. Continue reading
Maintaining healthy hormone levels can be a challenge but it is possible. Following a diet that supports the thyroid is a good place to start. It should provide certain nutrients, like iodine and selenium, that naturally support normal thyroid health. Additionally, it’s important to be mindful of other types of food that can actually interfere with hormone balance and thyroid function. Let’s take a closer look at how you can use the power of nutrition to support your thyroid and encourage normal hormone balance. Continue reading
Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5,600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies.
Given the sheer density of research performed on this remarkable spice, it is no wonder that a growing number of studies have concluded that it compares favorably to a variety of conventional medications, including: Continue reading
The Food and Drug Administration has issued a voluntary recall for a thyroid medication made by a Chinese manufacturer because of potential problems with an ingredient.
