Vote Against Genetically Engineered Foods For Children by Boycotting Kellogg's

Print 
What if Kellogg's foods had honest labels? Would you buy?

On November 26, 2007, there was an article in The New York Times titled, 'Next up for U.S. farmers: Genetically modified sugar beets'.  The New York Times interviewed a representative from Kellogg's for the article.

"A Kellogg spokeswoman, Kris Charles, said her company, the top U.S. maker of cereal, 'would not have any issues' purchasing such sugar for products sold in the United States, where she said 'most consumers are not concerned about biotech.'"

Cereals That Talk Back To You And May Just Bite Back

The Organic Consumers Association wrote a letter to Kellogg's, requesting that they do not use genetically modified sugar beets.  One survey after another shows that Americans do care about genetically modified foods, but they are unaware that they currently consume them.  A November 2004 report by Rutgers' University showed that only 31% of Americans believe they have ever eaten genetically engineered foods.  Given the fact that processed foods contain corn, soy, and Canola; there is little doubt that almost every American has eaten genetically engineered foods, and most Americans do so on a daily basis.  Due to governmental groups working for the chemical industry, the U.S. is the only industralized nation that does not require strict labeling.  Kellogg's responded to the Organic Consumers Association.

Clearing The Confusion Surrounding Heirloom Seeds, Organic, Hybrid, and Open Pollinated

Print 

Growing your own food makes a lot of sense, given the rising costs of healthy foods, the increased nutrition that will be gained from your own fresh produce, and the sunlight that you will get in the process. However, most people do not know which seeds they should be buying. There are multiple brands selling what seem to be exactly the same seed products, and all of these companies use industry lingo which is misunderstood by the general public.

If a seed packet does not specify what type of seeds it contains, then you should assume the worst. The seeds will be clearly labeled if they are organic or heirloom.

Natural Remedies for Ear Aches, Ear Infections, and Ear Inflammation

Print 

The single most common reason for the prescription of antibiotics in children is ear infections, and these infections also arise from time to time in what appears to be healthy adults.  In most cases, the standard oral antibiotics have very little effect on the pain, but it is not long before the ear ache naturally subsides.

Ear aches often occur when an ear gets infected.  The ears then become inflamed; making fluid drainage more difficult.  This results in an immune system response which includes fever, difficulty hearing through the 'bad' ear, mucus buildup inside the ear, and often other general signs of sickness.  However, there are other reasons for ear aches.

Unwilling Guinea Pigs: Using Foster Care Children For Forced Drug Experiments

Print 

In the summer of 2004, Liam Scheff, an independent investigative journalist published the story of Incarnation Children's Center in New York City, where experimental and highly toxic AIDS drugs were forcibly administered to foster children of the State.  Originally published in the article, The House That AIDS Built, the story was subsequently carried by The New York Press with the title: Orphans on Trial.  Children refusing experimental medications were surgically implanted tubes to allow direct injections of drugs into their stomachs against their will.  In November of the same year, the BBC broadcast Guinea Pig Kids, a video of the story.  After airing the documentary just once, the BBC abruptly changed its position and distanced itself from the controversial story, due to threats which came from the United States.

"The FDA encourages studies in pediatric patients.  Clinical trials involving children and orphans are therefore legal and not unusual."

Naturally Treating Brown Recluse Spider Bites

Print 

Brown recluse spiders migrate into homes in the autumn, where warmer climates may be found. These spiders reside in places with regular human movement, but they are not usually aggressive. They are known to bite when they feel threatened or trapped. Bites often occur when a spider is trapped between a piece of clothing and the human body. It is believed that they enjoy human dwellings because their nocturnal lifestyle benefits from artificial light.

Brown recluse venom contains at least 9 distinct poisons; making it similar to rattlesnake venom. It effects blood vessels in the bite area to potentially cause massive tissue destruction. The result can be horrific. A bite that is left untreated may require an amputation of the limb, and it can lead to death. The bites cause kidney failure in some people.

Silica Supplements: Just Another Fraud

Print 

Silica (silicon dioxide) is used in some powdered foods to ensure that they are free flowing. It is also used heavily in the manufacture of steel, thermal insulation, electronic circuit boards, semiconductors, and optical fibers. While its industrial uses are many, its health benefits appear to be nil.

Silica is a compound that is found in soil. There are people who have made the asinine assumption that it must be beneficial to health based on this. Another basis for the assumption about silica's benefits is the fact that trace amounts of it are found inside fruits and vegetables, which could produce some minor contributions to good health, but mostly to the health of those fruits and vegetables. Supplementing with silica has not been shown to provide any health benefits to humans, and all silica supplements contain far more silica than anyone could consume naturally.

Dr. Ron Paul's Speech Before the U.S. House of Representatives: Free Speech and Dietary Supplements

HON. RON PAUL OF TEXAS

Free Speech and Dietary Supplements

"Mr. Speaker, I rise to introduce the Health Freedom Protection Act.  This bill restores the First Amendment rights of consumers to receive truthful information regarding the benefits of foods and dietary supplements by codifying the First Amendment standards used by federal courts to strike down the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) efforts to censor truthful health claims.  The Health Freedom Protection Act also stops the Federal Trade Commissions (FTC) from censoring truthful health care claims.

Natural Remedies for Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Stings

Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Stings

If a stinger is left embedded in the body, then remove it as soon as possible. This should be the first step. Use whatever tools are immediately available to dig it out. You could use a knife, credit card, pliers, tweezers, or a needle. Sterilize the tool if possible, but do not waste time. For maximum absorption, clean the area with soap and water before applying remedies, otherwise the oils on the skin will repel them.

Granite Countertops Pose Health Risks

Print 

Granite countertops are dangerous because they are radioactive, and they emit poisonous radon gas. This phenomenon is something that even the mainstream press has begun reporting. The E.P.A. and other regulatory agencies have received floods of phone calls from home owners and inspectors about high levels of radiation from granite countertops. Regulators are urging people to ignore the high readings as unimportant, because taking a negative stance against radiation in kitchens would also imply that the radiation used in modern medicine is also dangerous. There is a tremendous amount of money to be lost across several industries, in other words.

A Short Rant About the Psychology of 'Science Based Medicine'

Print 

A new study has found that some anemia drugs, given to over 50% of patients who undergo chemotherapy, massively increases their chance of having deadly blood clots.  Chemotherapy often causes anemia, along with a variety of other conditions which are the symptoms of pharmaceutically-induced malnutrition, and poisoning.  After undergoing chemotherapy, most people can never live normally again.  Recovering cancer patients have intentionally induced, potentially fatal drug addictions; for they are forced to take large arrays of pharmaceuticals to hide the symptoms that were created by chemotherapy poisoning for the remainder of their lives.  These cancer victims are the core profit-makers for the pharmaceutical cartel.  The companies involved reap massive rewards from cancer victims shortly before their deaths.  It is a very nice financial arrangement for them, that is, until they inevitably kill their cash cow.

Cutting for Fun, Profits, and Giggles: Surgically Removing the Appendix, Tonsils, and Spleen

According to the World Health Organization, the United States is ranked 38th in life expectancy, indicating that its standard medical practices are inferior to Cuba, South Korea, Costa Rica, Guadeloupe, Singapore, and 31 other nations.  The U.S. system of medicine is only slightly superior to the Czech Republic and Slovenia, despite the U.S. spending approximately 16% of its total expenditures every year for health related expenses.  Standard medicine in the U.S. is the world's most expensive, and yet it is among the least safe.

Dishonest Food Labeling Targeting the Health Conscious: Understanding What "Organic" and "All-Natural" Really Mean

Print 

Consumer groups have been battling with regulators for consistent labeling for almost two decades, and yet current labeling has been largely defined by lawsuits, instead of regulatory guidelines. In the case of "all natural", the F.D.A. has intentionally left the phrase completely undefined for the benefit of its corporate partners. In 1993, the F.D.A. did not recommend any definition of the term in its Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, "because of resource limitations and other agency priorities". The Food and Drug Administration's thousands of employees were too busy to type the word "natural" during the year leading up to the Bill's passage. They were so hard-working.

Why You Should Use Apple Cider Vinegar Instead of Antacids and Baking Soda for Indigestion

Print 

Almost everything you have been told about heartburn, indigestion, and common stomach ailments is wrong. Indigestion is not caused by excess acid in the stomach, nor is acid reflux. In fact, the worst treatment for these problems is taking an antacid, whether prescribed or not.

Being acidic is the natural state of the stomach, so there is no such thing as an excess of acid or acid buildup regarding the stomach. It is like claiming that the lungs suffer from excess oxygen, or the blood has an excess of red cells. Attempting to neutralize stomach acid to treat an uneasy stomach is as wise as treating an excess of blood cells with leeches. Both cases are demonstrations of using poor medicine to treat only the symptoms of non-existent medical conditions, of which the establishment either cannot accurately diagnose, or it is too unprofitable to do so.

The C.D.C.'s Greatest Health Achievements

Print 

A reader from Valley Wide Health Systems in Colorado was outraged by an article that we wrote about the dangers of fluoride, and subsequently sent us a link to a Centers for Disease Control web page cataloging "the ten best health achievements of the 20th Century".  This person, of course, used a false name to hide.

Reading through that C.D.C. list actually became comedic for us, so we're going to share some key points, and explain how the C.D.C. is so very wrong on so many levels.  We feel pity for whoever was asked to write the list, because there have been very few accomplishments in the last 100 years in the area of medicine, despite the propaganda and hype.  Aside from the germ theory, and subsequent improvements in hygiene, medicine has not really achieved much at all.  We are thankful for the discovery of vitamin C by Hungarian researcher Albert Szent-Györgyi in 1934, and the discovery of the cause of cancer (ie. cellular oxygen starvation) by Dr. Otto Warburg in 1931.  However, both people were vilified by the establishment, because they were responsible for information that endangered its lucrative business.  They were noticeably absent from the C.D.C.'s list, and one would assume that curing cancer might actually make that list.  Before continuing, we should mention that we have chosen not to comment on non-medical related items on the list, such as automobile safety.  With that said, here we go!

New Details In The Kurt Danysh Antidepressant Murder

Print 

The Kurt Danysh case is one that we have covered repeatedly, both in Naturally Good Magazine, and on this website.  For those who have missed our articles, Kurt is currently incarcerated for fatally shooting his beloved father.  This happened just 17 days after his first dose of Prozac.  There was no motive for the crime, and his character changed dramatically in the days leading up to this tragic event.  He has since been proven by D.N.A. testing to be unable to metabolize Prozac properly.  None of this information was available to him at the time of his trial in 1996.

We have had several encounters with District Attorney Jason Legg, of Susquehanna County, PA; whereby he has attempted to convince us that Kurt is guilty, and that antidepressants did not play a role in the murder, and that the court's further drugging of Kurt did not influence his "confession".

What's It Going to Take to Lock Up Drug Company Execs?

Print 

A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine reveals the shocking extent of how corrupt drug companies are.

"Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through."

-- Jonathan Swift

After reading "The Neurontin Legacy -- Marketing through Misinformation and Manipulation" in the January 8, 2009 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, one may conclude that (1) America's prisons would be put to better use incarcerating drug company executives instead of pot smokers, and (2) society may need a return of public scorn via the pillory for those doctors who are essentially drug-company shills.

Drug-company corruption of American medicine is of course not news.  What is news is that such corruption has become so egregious, so transparent, and so embarrassing that the New England Journal of Medicine, perhaps the most influential American medical journal, is now stating that "drastic action is essential to preserve the integrity of medical science and practice and to justify public trust."

Quick Tip: Burn Treatment with Silver

Print 
Medical silver creams, like this one, are only available with a prescription.

Day-to-day burns are often treated with various over the counter creams that are found at pharmacies.  They are notorious for having little to no effect, and burns to the tongue are deemed untreatable.  However, in burn centers, an alternative remedy is being used all across the country, and there is nothing that comes close to its effectiveness in existence.  This substance is silver.

Silver has been known for decades as the best substance for burns, and even the mainstream medical establishment cannot deny its benefits.  Nothing comes close to providing such relief.  Along with repairing the damaged skin, silver also prevents infections, which is a common complication with severe burns.  While silver is regularly used in hospitals, high-end medical creams can be problematic to obtain, because prescriptions are required.  Unfortunately, the federal government interferes with our right to access essential medical supplies, even when they are completely safe.  It's all about maximizing profits, compliance, and ensuring that sooner or later we will come begging.

When Healthcare Comes With Six Figure Partnerships With Coca Cola Corporation

Print 

People who turn to alternative medicine are often ridiculed by doctors and mainstream media outlets, because supposedly "alternative medicine is not scientific". However, increasingly, we can see that conventional medicine is not driven by science, but by profits, and politics. The American Academy of Family Physicians (A.A.F.P.) now has a six-figure partnership with the Coca Cola corporation.

The two groups intend on creating a special "AAFP Recommended" soft drink, which will be a "healthy" alternative. The Coke-a-Cola corporation has an amazing history of deception in the health products industry. Take for instance, their bastardized version of Gatorade, called Poweraid. Just read the ingredients of this supposedly healthy sports drink, and let them speak volumes about the corporation's integrity. While they have been poisoning us, they've also been laughing all the way to the bank. I suppose that none of us can ever get enough benzene, aspartame, mind-altering phenylalanine, and sulfuric acid based high-fructose corn syrup in our diets -- you know -- for health. The phenylalanine is also known to cause marked elevation of insulin, which will overdrive the pancreas of diabetics to worsen the disease (or cause diabetes in pre-diabetics). Those folks at Coke-a-Cola must have big hearts.

H.R. 3962: The Dark Future of U.S. Health Care Designed To Kill Alternative Medicine

Print 

If you love extreme taxation, governmental control of your personal life, and bureaucracies, then you'll absolutely love Pelosi's new health bill.  Those of you in-the-know (who have been watching events carefully) will notice that none of it 'reforms' anything about the current system.  The pending statutes are clearly intended to funnel even more money into this corrupt system, and they will force citizens to obediently obey official 'health policies', as the policies of the A.M.A. become official governmental health policies, with the full force of law.  This is entirely about power and money, and our freedom is once again imperiled by the power elites.  What they call "reform" is merely the trashy cousin of CODEX that is meant to finish-off alternative and natural medicine, and make all of us subjects of the system.  This is not the America I grew to love.

Here is my favorite part: "Demonstration program providing reimbursement for culturally and linguistically appropriate services".  Hold on.  I heard that the new health care system was not intended for the benefit of illegal aliens.  You don't think they could have been lying, do you?

Sunscreen Lies and Cosmetic Trade Secrets

Print 

Everything that most people think they know about sunscreen and sunshine is wrong, and part of a clever marketing campaign designed to benefit large industry at our expense. These lies may be putting you on a collision course with cancer. These same corporations have been chemically medicating women through cosmetics for years without their knowledge, consent, and with very little governmental oversight.

Transdermal Medication

The use of patches that are placed onto the skin to administer drugs has become increasingly common in modern medicine. It is recognized that many compounds enter into the bloodstream unaltered through this method of medication. Medication by skin absorption bypasses the digestive system; making medications more potent. These patches are often marketed to people who have difficulty taking large or foul-tasting pills.
