Hidden Dangers of Chocolate???

Raw Foodists Arrested for Trafficking Chocolate; Interrogated for "Cacao Crimes"
Wednesday, September 24, 2008 by: Mike Adams
(NaturalNews) When Ron and Nadine from the Living Libations beauty care and chocolate company ( attempted to fly to the United States in August of this year, they ran into something completely unexpected: Drug-sniffing dogs at the Toronto airport. When their dogs took a special interest in their raw, unrefined chocolate with hemp seeds and superfood extracts, they were arrested, handcuffed and put through hours of tortuous interrogation. Such begins the journey of Ron and Nadine, the chocolate freedom fighters from Canada.Accused of trafficking two and a half pounds of hashish (which was really just raw, homemade chocolate), Ron and Nadine were arrested, physically separated into interrogation rooms and handcuffed to chairs. Their six-month old baby was forcibly taken from them, and they were immediately subjected to intense interrogation.Their chocolate looked suspicious, they were told, because it wasn't in a commercial wrapper. If it's not Hershey's, it must be drugs! An on-the-spot drug test from the NIK company (which makes portable drug testing kits) returned a positive result, the Canadian police claimed, and that's all the evidence they need to arrest anyone.As you'll learn later, however, it turns out the NIK drug testing kits return false positives nearly 100% of the time if the results are interpreted incorrectly, as they were in this case... Is this Canada, or Gitmo?

Natural Remedies for Yeast Infections and Candida

Natural Remedies for Yeast Infections and Candida
Tuesday, September 16, 2008 by: Tony Isaacs
(NaturalNews) Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of yeast which can affect the skin (yeast rash), mouth (thrush), digestive tract, esophagus, vagina (vaginitis), and other parts of the body. Yeast infections occur most frequently in moist areas of the body. Although Candida albicans and other Candida yeasts are the most frequent offenders, other yeast groups are known to cause illness. These include Torulopsis, Cryptococcus, Malassezia, and Trichosporon yeasts. Here are some natural and home remedies which may help:Vaginal Yeast Infections:* Take a superior brand of colloidal silver both internally by mouth, and vaginally by coating a tampon with a combination of colloidal silver, a few drops of tea tree oil and either aloe vera gel or KY jelly. Insert it into the vagina and leave for 30-40 minutes. Likewise, douches with colloidal silver and a few drops of tea tree oil can rid yeast infections and keep them at bay.* Ease the maddening itch of a yeast infection with a suppository made with boric acid. Although its name sounds harsh, boric acid acts as a mild antiseptic and has antiviral and antifungal properties. Insert one suppository every night as long as needed. Do not exceed 14 days. If you don't find the suppositories in your natural food store, ask your pharmacist to make them.* Yogurt – Dip a tampon in a container of organic non-sweetened yogurt that contains active cultures, then insert it into the vagina and leave for 30-40 minutes.Other Yeast Infections:* For external yeast infections in the folds of skin and male yeast infections, apply colloidal silver and a few drops of tea tree oil.* For internal yeast infections, take two or more ounces daily of a superior colloidal silver product until the yeast infection is gone. Works well and quickly for Candida (see below).* For best results keep the area moistened with the silver/tea tree oil for several minutes and repeat 2-3 times daily until the yeast infection is gone.To keep yeast infections at bay, do one treatment of topical silver and tea tree oil every one to two weeks.CandidaMany Candida species are members of gut flora in mammalian hosts including humans. If you want to get rid of Candida and remove it from the intestinal walls, take the following steps:* Superior colloidal silver (such as that made by the Utopia Silver Supplement Company) will get rid of candida in short order. Be sure to take plenty (a couple of ounces or more per day) and it will only take a few days.* Bentonite clay will literally pull the Candida off the intestinal walls.* Coconut oil is very effective against Candida and is a wonderful addition to any healthy diet plan.After you get rid of Candida, make a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil part of your daily diet/health plan, supplement with probiotics to make sure that beneficial flora flourishes in the gut, and occasionally take some colloidal silver (only a couple of teaspoons two or three times a week should be plenty) and use the bentonite clay and your Candida problems should be gone forever.Note: most yeast infections occur in people whose immune systems are compromised and/or whose intestinal flora is out of balance. To keep yeast infections at bay it is important to build a strong immune system and keep your intestinal flora balanced. A good diet and healthy lifestyle will go a long way towards accomplishing those goals.

Health e-Tips - Un-"acceptable risk"

Health e-Tips - Un-"acceptable risk"

Dear Reader,

I used to think of pneumonia as a really, really bad cold. And, apparently, so do most people. After Bernie Mac succumbed to it last month, I heard several of my friends wonder aloud "Who dies from pneumonia?"

Unfortunately, I'd found out the answer to that question about 15 years ago, when my father almost died from it. And he's not the only person in my family to have been attacked by this stealth enemy: Just last year his brother, my uncle, lost his own battle against it. So you'd think I'd be all for the pneumonia vaccine if it could protect others from the same fate. But the price of that so-called "protection" is more than I can stomach.

You see, for the past year, the pharmaceutical giant Glaxo has been testing its version of the pneumonia vaccine in Argentinean children from low-income families. But that's not the most disturbing part of the trial -- or the pneumonia vaccine. This is: Since that study began, 12 of the babies who were part of that study have died -- presumably as a result of the vaccine itself.

Of course, Glaxo argues that that number is quite small in proportion not only to the number of infants enrolled in the trial (around 15,000) but also to the overall number of deaths caused by pneumonia each year. And those points may be true. But we're talking about innocent, defenseless babies here. Which makes the whole notion of "acceptable risk" seem downright tasteless. Particularly when there's really no need for anyone -- adult or child -- to undergo the pneumonia vaccine to begin with.

As Dr. Wright has mentioned before in Nutrition & Healing, there are a number of natural bacteria-destroying methods you can use instead. Some of the most effective ones are zinc and colloidal silver…

…Also, according to another alternative health pioneer, Dr. Joseph Mercola, essential oils -- particularly oregano, rosewood, and thyme oils –- have been shown to inactivate harmful bacteria, including pneumonia.

The bottom line is, there are ways to protect yourself from pneumonia without submitting to a potentially deadly vaccine. And if you do happen to come down with it, remember that, while it is a serious condition, it doesn't have to be fatal. The earlier you seek treatment, the better off you'll be.

Yours in good health,

Living in a Lying Nation

Living in a Lying Nation
Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008
By Sean M. Madden
The following lead from Monday’s BBC Radio 4 Today program says it all, well, sort of:
Leaders of the European Union are meeting to decide what can be done about Russia in the wake of its invasion of Georgia. The leader of the opposition, David Cameron, went to Georgia in the aftermath of the conflict—and says that Russia must be shown what is unacceptable behaviour and that the UK must continue to stand by Georgia.

If one were to rely on the mainstream propaganda machine anywhere in the West, this statement would perhaps make sense. But when, instead, one actively seeks out news from beyond the mind-bending media machine, Cameron’s lie—like those told by the West’s other leading liars—is criminal in its assertion that Russia was the aggressor. A lie because despite it being known by all concerned, and by NATO leaders in particular, that Russia was responding to Georgia’s assault on South Ossetia, this fact is simply omitted by those who seem hell-bent on starting Cold War II, and who might spark, and even wish to spark, World War III. A criminal lie in that it is being exploited as yet one more in a long, perpetually growing list of casus belli to mask the West’s own “unacceptable behaviour,” its own criminal aggression.

But the Western media always reserves the right to choose its starting point in history. Those who retain a semblance of individual thought after seven years of being brainwashed by our brave truth-telling journalists may recall that all of history collapsed on the morning of September 11, 2001. The public was, therefore, denied a frank national discussion concerning U.S. foreign policy actions which may have led to the attacks. We were similarly denied a frank national discussion concerning the attacks themselves, who may have perpetrated them, what their motives may have been, who may have benefitted from the attacks, and what evidence existed which might point—beyond a shadow of a doubt—to the true culprits. Instead, what could have been a maturation moment for our adolescent republic, led, on the contrary, to a blatant attempt to keep “we the people” infantile in our response.

Living then in Massachusetts, I had been on the computer a couple hours before the terrorist strikes. I had noted with a certain sense of justice that a Reuters top headline had reported that the family of General RenĂ© Schneider had filed a lawsuit on September 10 accusing Henry Kissinger of orchestrating a CIA operation which led to the 1970 assassination of Schneider, then commander-in-chief of the Chilean army. Immediately after learning of the terrorist attacks, I checked the Reuters headlines again—and searched the Reuters news database—to find that the story was no longer available.

History had gone down the memory hole, as it so often must do if monstrous lies are to be maintained.

Therefore, in the case of the Georgian conflict, Georgia’s aggressive assault on South Ossetia must be wiped out of existence by wiping the fact—if it ever reached us—from our individual and collective memory, through constant repetition of the lie, both explicit and implicit. We’ve all heard the explicit. What follows is an example of the implicit, and therefore perhaps even more insidious, lie.

John Humphrys, the supposedly hard-headed host of the Today program, set up Monday’s program with a false dichotomy, both sides of which assume the axiomatic lie of Russian aggression. Noticing when this false dichotomizing occurs is crucial, as one can thereby often see that even when a journalist appears to be critical he might very well be blindsiding us with propaganda:
To sceptical observers there is something vaguely absurd about the leaders of the European Union being summoned for an emergency summit meeting to decide what should be done about Russia in the wake of its invasion of Georgia. Because, they point out, there is nothing that can be done. If a military response is ruled out—and it is—what is left is sanctions, and how you enforce sanctions against a country with so much oil and gas that we need them rather more than they need us. Well, the sceptics may yet be confounded, and, indeed, we’re hearing pretty bellicose statements coming from the Russians themselves.

So, the question—as the BBC presents it, even by a journalist famous for his tenacity in interviewing politicians—is “to decide what should be done about Russia in the wake of its invasion of Georgia,” not reporting that this very statement is a lie, a lie told by the politicians and bellowed by their journalists.

The first article I wrote about the Georgia conflict was in response to the New York Times bellowing of August 14. It is perhaps right, then, that as an American living in Britain I point out that journalists on this side of the Atlantic are just as guilty as their American colleagues of hammering the lies into our noggins so as to form, or forge, public opinion—that is, to shape and mold our every thought, our every consideration, our every conviction—such that we blindly support our criminal leaders’ criminal actions.

The Today program, I should note, is BBC Radio 4’s most popular show, reported on its own website to reach over six million listeners each week. Radio 4 itself is a sort of British equivalent of National Public Radio in the U.S., and is similarly influential in its reach. Its programming in general, and the Today program in particular, often includes leading British politicians and other prominent opinion makers as guests, as in the case of opposition leader David Cameron being interviewed for today’s program.

In closing, I had hoped when I moved to Britain three years ago—for my wife to return to her native home after living in the U.S. with me for twelve years—that the world-renowned British press would prove to be more critical of, less beholden to, the criminal powers that be.
Worse, they are every bit as criminally complicit as their American counterparts.

And, so, whether I live in the United States or in the United Kingdom, I shall, regrettably, be living in a lying nation, a nation I call home.

Gardasil - Needless vaccine can have deadly consequences

Needless vaccine can have deadly consequences

Dear Friend,

What will it take for Big Pharma to stop pushing their dangerous and useless
vaccines? Apparently, one death a month is not going to be enough.

That's the rate at which women who have had Merck's cervical cancer vaccine,
Gardasil, are dying, according to a new report. This is especially tragic
because Gardasil is far and away the most unnecessary vaccine that's currently
on the market (and that's really saying something).

An FDA report on Gardasil was recently obtained by Judicial Watch, a public
interest group that campaigns against government corruption. They used the
Freedom of Information act to show that the FDA has received reports of 10
deaths associated with Gardasil since September of 2007. Merck has come under
fire for "fast-tracking" Gardasil to market without proper testing in order to
be the first to offer this repulsive, needless vaccination.

In addition to the deaths, the report unearthed by Judicial Watch also noted a
large number of other medical incidents involving Gardasil, including 140
serious adverse reactions (which included such pleasantries as anaphylactic
shock, grand mal seizures, foaming at the mouth, coma, and paralysis – of
these, 27 cases were considered life threatening), 10 spontaneous abortions,
and six cases of Guillian-Barre Syndrome, a debilitating nerve disorder.

Sounds great, huh? But the above description is incredibly sanitized. The
report found by Judicial Watch is a catalogue of horrors that includes the near
instant death of many otherwise perfectly healthy women who died soon after
their inoculation with Gardasil.

In one sickening case, a 14-year-old girl (who, I'll remind you, doesn't NEED a
vaccination to avoid HPV), received her Gardasil shot, took six steps and then
collapsed into unconsciousness, and began to foam at the mouth before coming
out of it a minute later. Other patients weren't so lucky; one went into a coma
and emerged paralyzed.

A 20-year-old with no medical history died four days after her Gardasil shot.
Seven other women died within two days. And in one stunning instance, a woman
died of a blood clot (the most common diagnosis in the case of the Gardasil-
related deaths) within THREE HOURS of her inoculation.

In all, Judicial Watch says that at least 18 deaths are linked to the Gardasil
vaccine, and it could be as many as 20.

All of these tragedies, and Merck has still had the nerve to put big bucks into
getting every state in the country to MANDATE Gardasil to school girls as young
as 11 years old. If it comes to that, believe me I'll be leading the revolution
and storming the Capitol steps myself!

You can lay the blame for these horrors at the door of the idiots in the FDA,
who allowed Merck's Big Pharma bucks to influence their decisions. As a result,
they've turned all of America's young women into guinea pigs for their massive
vaccine test.

"In the least, governments should rethink any efforts to mandate or promote
this vaccine for children," said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch.
"Given all the questions about Gardasil, the best public health policy would be
to re-evaluate its safety and prohibit its distribution to minors."

Amen to that. But I'll go a step further: let's get the FDA to prohibit the use
of Gardasil! It's a long shot since we don't have Big Pharma's money – but we
can start by flooding those morons with letters! Who's with me!?

Guarding against the dangers of Gardasil,

William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
