Judge Reduces Jury Award against Bayer’s Roundup to $78.5 Million
A California judge reduced by more than $200 million a jury verdict linking Bayer’s Roundup weed killer to cancer but upheld the jury’s findings that the company acted with malice.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos said the $250 million in punitive damages awarded by the jury must be slimmed down to match the $39.25 million in compensatory damages that the jury found appropriate. If the plaintiff agrees to the reduction by Dec. 7, no new trial is needed.
Bayer-Monsanto Corruption in Action: Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos is considering doing Bayer-Monsanto’s bidding and overturning the jury’s verdict in the Roundup-cancer trial awarding $289 million to DeWayne Lee Johnson. Some jurors are coming forward urging the judge to let their verdict and award to Johnson stand. The judge’s decision could come sometime today. And we hope that Judge Bolanos makes the right decision. Stay tuned…

Dean Brooks grasped on to the shopping cart, suddenly unable to stand or breathe. Later, at a California emergency room, a nurse with teary eyes delivered the news, telling his wife, Deborah, to hold out hope for a miracle. It was December 2015 when they learned that a blood cancer called non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) was rapidly attacking the man’s body and immune system. Continue reading
If you disagree with your doctor regarding the medical treatment of your children, they can be taken away from you, put in a foster home, and you can be arrested for endangering the health and welfare of your child. There are many people jailed every year, put there for disagreeing with medical doctors and their policies. In order to break free from the clutches of organized medical crime, pharmaceutical drug cartels and the monstrous insurance companies, we must all work to reform the unconstitutional laws that monopolize health care.

“Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout Dr. Willis?”
In 1986, because so many children were being killed and crippled by vaccines, the United States government granted vaccine makers the right to kill and cripple your children without punishment.
Prior to 1986, you could sue a vaccine maker if the vaccine killed or crippled your child. So many children were being killed and crippled by vaccines, that the law suits could have bankrupted every pharmaceutical company on the planet. Continue reading

What you are about to preview is an introduction ONLY to an intense study recently conducted and published by The American Journal of Medicine. Although we are no fans of much coming from the mainstream medical community, I have found this study to be immensely well researched and is worth your time and attention. What I find most interesting, is their addressing of the financial costs of – in effect – killing oneself – both in life and financial bankruptcy. ~ Ed.
Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs) What are they?, you may be asking. EMFs are the very frequencies that make modern life possible such as electric house wiring, any electrical mechanism, appliance or microwave-run device. All electrical functions produce EMF fields or non-ionizing radiation as two frequencies: Electric and Magnetic. Each frequency produces negative impacts on the human body and ecosystem thereby contributing to, and/or creating, adverse health effects. Many people suffer with electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and probably don’t realize it. Continue reading
A neuroscientist explains what tech does to the reading brain
For anyone who has ever been a reader, there’s much to sympathize with in Maryanne Wolf’s Reader, Come Home. The UCLA neuroscientist, a great lover of literature, tries to read Hermann Hesse’s Glass Bead Game, an old favorite, only to realize that she finds him boring and too complex. She wonders why he ever won a Nobel. And Wolf, who previously wrote Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain, is horrified that this is what has happened to her ability to concentrate.
Reader, Come Home is about, as its subtitle states, “the reading brain in a digital world.” The Verge spoke to Wolf about how technology is changing the brain, what we lose when we lose deep attention, and what to do about it. Continue reading
NOTE: Of these past few months, I fully understand the meaning of the following. ~ Ed.
Sometimes life starts to spin out of control and it’s tough for us to keep up. Things that once seemed insignificant are suddenly annoying and we find ourselves snapping at others even when they’ve done nothing wrong. This may be a result of mental and emotional exhaustion, and identifying the key warning signs may help you decide if you need to stop, rest, and recharge.
Keep reading to find out if you’re suffering from a burnout! Continue reading
Wherever one goes on social media or any other public forum, one of the main thrusts of conversation is the apparent mental deterioration of the American public. Today’s Americans are not only more ignorant than previous generations, but as illustrated by our violent politics and social chaos, we appear to have lost the ability to function as civilized people. Much is explained by our deplorable educational system, but the loss of the ability of many people of all ages to rationally think and act cannot be explained away simply by bad schools or toxic entertainment. Even the most credulous are beginning to believe that there is some underlying reason for the collapse of the American intellect, something that is more basic than bad teachers, schools and curricula—and they’re right.

On October 1, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released the final results of a “special assignment” that tested for levels of glyphosate, the weed-killing chemical found in the blockbuster herbicide Roundup. They also posted results for a competing herbicide, called glufosinate, in corn, soy, eggs, and milk during the fiscal year 2016.  Continue reading

Dementia is a devastating condition that slowly strips people of their memories and personality, altering them from loved ones to total strangers in just a few years. Dementia is one of the world’s fastest growing diseases, and over 24 million people battle this condition worldwide. With an aging global population, experts believe that this figure could leap to over 84 million people by the year 2040. The sobering fact is that if you do not currently know someone who has some form of dementia you certainly will in the future. Continue reading

Previous studies have shown that rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) has many different therapeutic applications. These studies were collated by researchers from Pars Bioscience Research Center and University of Kansas-City Missouri to create a meta-analysis that would evaluate the preservative and therapeutic potential of rosemary.

Once you are done with your cup of brewed coffee, what do you do with the used grounds? Do you throw them away as garbage or consign them to the compost heap? Spanish researchers believe that using spent coffee grounds as a means of organic soil amendment will offer many benefits in agriculture and for the environment.
Coffee is a very popular and healthy drink. Its heavy global consumption produces six million tons of used grounds each year. A lot of this biological residue ends up in landfills, to rot alongside the rest of the garbage. Continue reading
