Natural Vitamin E Prevents, Reverses Lung Cancer

January 31, 2014

Yet another media hatchet job on vitamin E is, predictably, getting lots of attention. This particular attack is just one more in an embarrassingly long series. It is based on a recent study proclaiming that vitamin E promotes cancer. Well, with a highfalutin' study like that, they might at least have used real vitamin E. They didn't. I have searched the original paper. They mention "vitamin E" over and over and over again. However, the words "d-alpha tocopherol," or "mixed natural tocopherols," do not appear in the paper, at all, except in one reference citation. Why? Because that is what natural vitamin E is called. If the researchers had taken the trouble to use natural vitamin E, it would likely have reduced cancer.

Pharma cited in EU corruption report

February 4, 2014

The pharmaceutical industry has been name-checked in a new report on corruption in the EU which has put the costs to the economy at a staggering €120bn a year.

Comment: Do not allow the publication of this report to fool you into thinking that the Brussels EU is about to take any dramatic action against the corrupt nature of the Pharma Cartel. Instead, given that the so-called "European Commission" – the executive level of the Brussels EU – essentially serves as the unelected political stakeholder of multinational pharmaceutical corporations, it will simply continue to craft the laws of Europe on their behalf. Seen in this light, the name-checking of the Cartel in this report is essentially little more than a political distraction.

Roundup Accumulates in GMO Food, Proving Its Lack of Safety

February 5, 2014

An important new manuscript accepted for publication in the journal Food Chemistry disproves the widely held notion that GMO crops are 'substantially equivalent' to their traditional counterparts; a notion which forms the basis for national and international agencies – including the U.S. FDA, the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization – declaring genetically modified foods to be safe without having performed adequate health risk assessments.

New cancer cases worldwide expected to skyrocket

February 4, 2014

The incidence of cancer worldwide is growing at an alarming pace, and there is an urgent need to implement strategies to prevent and curb the disease, according to a report from the World Health Organization. New cancer cases will skyrocket globally from an estimated 14 million in 2012 to 22 million new cases a year within the next two decades, the report says. During that same period, cancer deaths are predicted to rise from an estimated 8.2 million annually to 13 million a year.

Comment: For almost a century now, cancer has been the target of an investment business – the pharmaceutical 'business with disease' – that has turned it into a multi-billion dollar profit empire. The outcome of this was predictable: Today, at the beginning of the 21st Century, cancer is spreading globally; for most types of cancer the annual death rate is still increasing and the skyrocketing costs are financially ruining millions of cancer patients and strangulating the economies of entire nations. But it doesn't have to be like this, cancer can become a manageable disease. To learn about natural health approaches that have been shown to block all key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease, read Dr. Rath and Dr. Niedzwiecki's groundbreaking book, 'Victory Over Cancer'.

Study reveals South Africa has world's highest rate
of high blood pressure

February 4, 2014

New research reveals that South Africa has the highest rate of high blood pressure reported among people aged 50 and over for any country in the world, at any time in history. Analysis of data from a major survey found that 78 per cent of those who took part in South Africa tested positive for high blood pressure, or hypertension.

Comment: Several hundred million people worldwide suffer from high blood pressure, the most common of all cardiovascular conditions. In more than 90 percent of cases, the diagnosis given by conventional medicine is "essential hypertension," that is, hypertension due to unknown causes. The conventional medicine approach is, therefore, largely confined to treating the symptoms of hypertension without correcting the primary underlying cause: a "spasm" of the blood vessel wall triggered by deficiencies of specific bioenergy nutrients in millions of blood vessel wall cells.

Choline recommendations during pregnancy may be too low,
new study suggests

January 30, 2014

Recent research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) found that during pregnancy, and particularly during the third trimester, large amounts of choline may be needed to support fetal development. Conclusions of the research revealed that current recommendations may be too low. Choline deficiency in pregnant women may result in elevated levels of homocysteine, potentially resulting in birth defects.

The global dietary supplement attack

January 29, 2014

People throughout the world are increasingly shunning mainstream medicine in favour of more natural approaches to improving their health and wellbeing. Not coincidentally, the attacks on natural healthcare continue to mount. Media attacks – such as comparisons of the food (dietary) supplement industry with an unregulated 'Wild West' – are only one side of the story. They reflect a wider threat from certain quarters of the scientific, regulatory and media establishments, which must be resisted at all costs.

NSA pursues quantum technology

January 31, 2014

In this month's issue of Physics World, Jon Cartwright explains how the revelation that the US National Security Agency (NSA) is developing quantum computers has renewed interest and sparked debate on just how far ahead they are of the world's major labs looking to develop the same technology. In 2006 the NSA openly announced a partnership with two US institutions to develop quantum computers. However, according to documents leaked by whistle-blower Edward Snowden, and published last month by the Washington Post, the NSA also wishes to develop the technology so that it is capable of breaking modern Internet security.
