Comment: By indicating their understanding that the vascular benefits of micronutrients are linked to their ability to maintain the integrity of the vascular walls, the authors of this review and meta-analysis essentially add further support to Dr. Rath’s breakthrough discovery in cardiovascular disease. To learn how Dr. Rath’s discovery makes possible the natural prevention of heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and many other cardiovascular conditions, read his classic book, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks...But People Do!

Comment: Research carried out by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute under the direction of Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki has shown that a combination of specific micronutrients working in synergy can simultaneously target multiple cancer mechanisms. Their findings show that vitamin C, lysine, proline, green tea extract and other important nutrient components combined in synergistic proportions can be effective in halting metastasis (the spread of cancer cells), decreasing tumor growth and eliminating cancer cells without harming healthy cells. To learn how this research points the way towards the natural control of colon cancer, read this article on the Dr. Rath Health Foundation website and the groundbreaking book by Dr. Rath and Dr. Niedzwiecki, Victory Over Cancer.

The sea contains most of the world’s iodine. This mineral which is essential for a healthy thyroid gland, was discovered in 1811 by Bernard Courtois. Yet long before this, from about 1600BC, Chinese healers were treating goitres (an enlarged thyroid gland) with burnt sponge and seaweed. Both are rich in iodine which is why these traditional treatments worked for people suffering thyroid disease.

Drug companies seek dismissal of City of Chicago’s opioid lawsuit; claim issues fall within FDA’s jurisdiction

August 31, 2014

Competing drug makers have joined forces to ask a federal judge to toss a lawsuit the City of Chicago brought earlier this summer over accusations they deceptively marketed opioid painkillers.
Read article on the Washington Examiner website

Comment: The lawsuit that is the subject of this news story alleges that drug companies misled the public and doctors about the health risks of opioid pain medications by engaging in false advertising, fraud and deceptive marketing through a conspiracy that is said to have boosted their profits and created an increase in addiction and health care costs. Whilst only time will tell what the outcome of this case is, one thing is already for sure: The Pharmaceutical and Chemical Cartel has a century-long history of waging war and placing profit over life. Ultimately, therefore, the only way to ensure the survival of mankind is to publicly unmask the Cartel’s modus operandi and enable the people of the world to look behind its curtain of deception.

Limits to Growth was right. New research shows we're nearing collapse

September 2, 2014

The 1972 book Limits to Growth, which predicted our civilisation would probably collapse some time this century, has been criticised as doomsday fantasy since it was published. Back in 2002, self-styled environmental expert Bjorn Lomborg consigned it to the “dustbin of history”. It doesn’t belong there. Research from the University of Melbourne has found the book’s forecasts are accurate, 40 years on. If we continue to track in line with the book’s scenario, expect the early stages of global collapse to start appearing soon.

Comment: The future of our planet doesn’t have to be like this. While the status quo is desperately trying to prolong its rule through the enforcement of ‘Big Brother’-type global surveillance programs, scientifically-proven alternatives to the products of the multi-trillion dollar chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries – that could enable mankind to liberate itself from these corporate interests – are already becoming available. For example, around the world, renewable energy is gradually beginning to replace fossil fuels. In the area of health, natural compounds such as vitamins and phytobiologicals are proving far superior to synthetic pharmaceutical drugs in essentially all areas of medicine.

“Obese Intelligence”: The NSA Search Engine. “Over 850 Billion Records about Phone Calls, Emails, Cellphone Locations, and Internet Chats”

August 27, 2014

The Intercept was already getting the intelligence community excited with its revelations that the National Security Agency had decided to mimic inspector Google.  Through creating a search engine in the manner of those pro-transparency pioneers, the intelligence community was turning the tables on the very idea of searchable information.  Why keep it the operating preserve of the public?  The search engine has, as it stands, over 850 billion records about phone calls, emails, cellphone locations, and internet chats.
