A great example of that is the song “Wide Awake,” published in the summer of 2015. That song foretold the mass global awakening we’re seeing now as people are rejecting the tyranny of globalism everywhere.

The song promotes universal love for humanity while exposing the “fake news” that hundreds of millions of people have now come to realize is the mainstream media (legacy media). Some of the lyrics from the song include:


And we know that it is time to

Blow the lid and expose the crime

Of how their fear agenda is fake

We’re wide awake


We refuse to roll over

Disconnect from the media controllers

Take your mind back from that media attack

and belief system hijack, Jack.


You know they want to divide us

They’re afraid of the love inside us


The song lyrics also serve as a call to action, encouraging people to change the future by taking action to dispel the illusions of the globalists:


Take a walk with me with our eyes wide open

We’re gonna change the future by doin’ not just hopin’

We’re livin’ in illusions that controllers use to blind you

They never tell you peace is found inside you


No matter what the color of our faces

Our language or races

All our future lives are at stake

We’re wide awake


The song and music video, deliberately written in a feel-good pop / light rock with a bit of Country Western twang, is available here. Listen to all 16 of my songs at

Millions of Americans have been over-paying for chicken thanks to this mathematical glitch /naturalnews/2017-01-15-american-chicken-industry-pricing-has-been-based-on-faulty-information /naturalnews/2017-01-15-american-chicken-industry-pricing-has-been-based-on-faulty-information#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> Thanks to “gardening blogger” Arty G. Schronce from the Georgia Department of Agriculture you’ve probably overpaid for chicken meat in the past few years. The New York Times recently reported some significant flaws in the indexes that determine the price of chicken meat in grocery stores. As it turns out, the prices have been rigged. (RELATED: See more news about rigged markets, rigged elections and rigged pricing at

Of the three primary indexes – the Georgia Dock, Urner Barry index, and the index compiled by the Federal Department of Agriculture (FDA) – used to help set chicken prices, two of them hovered around $0.72 a pound at the end of October. The Georgia Dock index, however, was at $1.10 a pound. This 30 percent gap recently came to the surface and has prompted investors to pose serious questions

As reported by the Washington Post, a significant portion of chicken sold to retailers is based on the Georgia Dock price. Every week Arty Shronce makes a calculation that gives big retailers – such as Walmart and Safeway – an average price for a pound of chicken.

Are chicken prices artificially high?

Where does this high diversion in price come from? It turns out that there’s a reason for this. While the Urner Barry index and the index compiled by the FDA are working to validate the information they get from chicken producers, Georgia Dock does not.

Today, the Georgia Dock index is based on data from 10 of the 11 companies that process poultry in the state. Once a week, Schronce calls facility managers to retrieve information to set the average price per pound of poultry sold.

But how correct are the calculations of a gardening blogger who, according to critics, does not do enough to verify the data he receives. Furthermore, two of the largest American chicken producers – Pilgrim’s Pride and Tyson Foods – seem to have too much sway over how the Georgia Department of Agriculture calculates the chicken price index.

So if the largest chicken producers are telling the Georgia Dock which prices they should use and the information isn’t properly verified, there is a good chance that the prices of chicken meat are artificially high.

Also, data shows that most of the chicken consumed by Americans comes from supermarkets who generally use the Georgia Dock index, so the chances are high that you are paying a lot more for your chicken then you should. (RELATED: Discover more news about fresh food ingredients at

Georgia Dock doubts itself

Maybe the most remarkable thing about the whole chicken price story is that it was Arty Schronce himself to blow the whistle on his own pricing index. In a memo written to the Georgia Department of Agriculture, he said that he had come to “question the validity of some of the information provided” by local chicken producers. Furthermore, he honestly stated that his training was inadequate, inconsistent, and sometimes in error. Furthermore, he noted that the companies he was required to survey were sometimes unresponsive.

“I often received lackadaisical and rude responses to my requests for information,” Schronce wrote. Sometimes his calls were not returned, or the companies simply responded to his price questions with “just keep ’em the same.”

According to Schronce, it was not the first time he voiced these concerns. He said that he takes his job very serious. However, he noted that it is no longer in his power to do it adequately and blames the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the reporting poultry companies for the misleading prices.

In their defense, McPeake, of the Georgia Department of Agriculture, said a review process began in December 2015 after “serious concerns” emerged. She added that even though Schronce’s training “may have been abridged due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances, every effort was made to ensure that he was indeed trained on some level.”

As stated by The Wall Street Journal, Georgia Dock has apparently responded to their shortcomings and will require companies to submit additional data to verify the accuracy of the information.

9 natural health benefits of Bee Propolis /naturalnews/2017-01-15-9-natural-health-benefits-of-bee-propolis /naturalnews/2017-01-15-9-natural-health-benefits-of-bee-propolis#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> Aside from the vital role bees perform in plant pollination, they also provide humans with several health-boosting substances – honey itself has numerous therapeutic properties; bee pollen and bee propolis also offer amazing health benefits.

Bee propolis – also known as “bee glue” – is a sticky substance derived from tree resin collected by bees.

From NaturalHealth365:

“Bee propolis begins as a resin secreted by trees. Bees metabolize it, and the resulting substance is about 30 percent beeswax, 55 percent resins and 10 percent aromatic oils and ethers. It is responsible for creating a sterile, safe environment within bee hives, so it’s no surprise that it has antibiotic, antiviral and other healing properties.”

Bees gather the sap during warm weather, blending it with wax flakes they store in their abdomens. The resulting mixture is rolled into a ball by the bee and then stored in the pollen basket attached to the bee’s leg. Once a bee gathers enough propolis, it takes it back to the hive.


“At this point, the propolis is unloaded and used to patch up holes in the hive. Bees also use propolis as an antiseptic barrier covering invaders with the sticky substance to prevent hive contamination.”

Bee propolis health benefits

NaturalHealth365 has listed nine health benefits of bee propolis. These include:

Cancer-fighting properties – Propolis has been shown to be effective in killing cancer cells. Unlike other mainstream cancer treatments, propolis kills only cancer cells, leaving healthy cells unharmed.

Bone health – Propolis helps in the growth and maintenance of healthy bones. It fights inflammation and stops bones from deteriorating.

Food poisoning treatment – Due to its antimicrobial properties, the three most common microorganisms associated with food poisoning – Enterobacter faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus and C. jejuni – can be fought using bee propolis.

Inflammation relief – Bee propolis is an effective treatment for oral inflammation and infections. Its anti-inflammatory properties are also useful in the treatment of arthritis, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Blood pressure management – Bee propolis can be used to decrease TH (Tyrosine hydroxylase) enzyme activity. This enzyme can inhibit the production of nitric oxide, which is important for healthy hearts. Propolis reduces hypertension and helps keep blood pressure at healthy levels.

Wart removal – Applied topically, propolis can get rid of often difficult-to-remove plantar warts. A daily application for two weeks should do the trick.

Allergy relief – Propolis blocks histamine response, making it an effective treatment against allergy symptoms such as runny noses and itchy red eyes.

Protection against heat stress – Due to its combined antioxidant, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and other properties, propolis can protect against heat exhaustion while also improving athletic performance in high temperature environments.

Illness prevention and treatment for infections – The various health-boosting properties of bee propolis can help in treating and preventing colds, flu and other germ-transmitted illnesses. Propolis fights a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi and provides a general boost to the entire immune system.

Propolis available in lozenges, capsules and topical applications

Bee propolis is available in many forms, including lozenges that are effective in treating sore throats, capsules that can be taken internally, and tinctures, gels or ointments for topical use. (RELATED: Discover more powerful natural remedies at and read about nutritional supplements at

People who have a history of allergic reactions or hypersensitivity to bee stings or other bee products may also experience similar reactions to bee propolis. Always read the label before using any propolis products and consult with a health care provider if you have any questions.

For most people, however, using bee propolis is a completely safe and natural way to boost your health and treat a variety of common ailments.

Baffled scientists witness water freezing at 221 F at atmospheric pressure /naturalnews/2017-01-14-baffled-scientists-witness-water-freezing-at-221-f-at-atmospheric-pressure /naturalnews/2017-01-14-baffled-scientists-witness-water-freezing-at-221-f-at-atmospheric-pressure#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> Water is virtually everywhere on the planet, and it is at the source of all living things, but that doesn’t mean that scientists fully understand all of its properties.

Like this one: Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) just discovered that, even at high temperatures, water freezes solid when it is placed into tiny tubes.

That discovery was a complete surprise to a team of chemical engineers that was led by Prof. Michael Strano, who was attempting to send electric currents through water in small nanotubes. (RELATED: See more science news at

“We noticed unexpected changes in some measurements and discovered that the changes resulted from heating,” said graduate student Lee Drahushuk, who co-authored a paper that laid out the details of the discovery.

“From there, we varied temperature systematically and realized the changes were an effect of a phase transition between liquid and solid water inside the nanotube,” he told Digital Trends.

Distorting water’s phase behavior with small nanotubes

Researchers then decided to analyze the water’s behavior even further, but were surprised by just how strange that behavior was. At a temperature well beyond the usual boiling point for water – at least 105° Celsius (221 degrees F) – the water in the nanotubes had frozen solid. Indeed, the direction of the phase transition and the degree was far more than anyone had anticipated.

“If you confine a fluid to a nanocavity, you can actually distort its phase behavior,” Strano said, in reference to when and how substances change between solid, liquid and gas phases.

According to a press release from MIT, those effects were anticipated, but the enormity of the change and the direction it took (raising rather than lowering the freezing point) were not expected at all.

In one test conducted by the research team, the water solidified at the 105° C mark, though the exact temperature is difficult to determine; 105° C was considered to be the minimum value in the test, while the actual temperature could have been as high as 151° C.

The researchers said that they found water’s changes inside the tiny, straw-like structures depended very much on the exact diameter of the tubes. Strano said that those used during the testing were “the smallest pipes you could think of.” According to the press release, the nanotubes were left open at both ends, and there were reservoirs of water at each opening.

Even the fractional difference between nanotubes 1.05 nanometers and 1.06 nanometers exhibited differences of tens of degrees in the freeze point, the team found. These extreme differences were also a complete surprise.

“All bets are off when you get really small,” Strano said. “It’s really an unexplored space.”

It is a surprising discovery that water even flows into the minuscule tubes in the first place, said Strano. Carbon nanotubes are believed to be hydrophobic – that they repel water – so water molecules should have a difficult time entering the passageway. That they do, after all, remains a mystery the team could not solve.

‘Not necessarily ice but ice-like’

Strano and his research team used very sensitive imaging systems to conduct their tests with a technique known as vibrational spectroscopy, that allowed the scientists to track the water’s movement inside the nanotubes, thereby making that behavior subject to detailed measurement for the very first time.

The team was not only able to detect water’s presence inside the tube, but also the phase it was in.

“We can tell if it’s vapor or liquid, and we can tell if it’s in a stiff phase,” Strano said. And though the water most definitely enters a solid phase, the team has refrained from calling it “ice,” because that is a term implying a particular crystalline structure, which has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.

“It’s not necessarily ice, but it’s an ice-like phase,” said Strano.

The team’s discovery was described in a paper published this week in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, reported Digital Trends.

The DEA just listed CBD as a Schedule I Controlled Substance… what happens next?

Is this a massive power grab to try to criminalize all hemp extracts, even when they contain virtually no THC? Or is it just an administrative housekeeping announcement for international treaty compliance?

The hemp industry says this move by the DEA is no big deal, and they’re even prepared to challenge it in the courts. I’ve been told by some of the largest CBD product companies in America that they aren’t going to stop selling their CBD hemp extracts.

This may put the hemp extract industry on a collision course with the DEA. But with Trump taking office, the DEA could be headed for some huge changes anyway. It’s all very fluid right now, so stay informed on all the news related to hemp science at

Be sure to check for all the real news on hemp and CBD that the mainstream media is trying to censor.

These pesticides, which can persist in soil and water with ease, are associated with killing bees indiscriminately, leading to a dramatic drop in pollinator populations and massive environmental damage. (RELATED: Stay informed on environmental news at

The judge ruled against the beekeepers and public interest advocates in their lawsuit — which was seeking to protect bees, and the rest of the environment, from unregulated damages that may be caused by the Environmental Protection Agency’s rather sloppy policies regarding seeds that are coated with certain insecticides that are known to kill bees in large numbers.

Andrew Kimbrell, Director of the Center for Food Safety, said, “It is astounding that a judge, EPA or anyone with any common sense would not regulate this type of toxic pesticide use, especially when the seed-coatings are so broadly applied and there is so much at risk. Study after study has shown that seeds coated with these chemicals are a major culprit in catastrophic bee-kills. Now more than ever our country’s beekeepers, environment and food system deserve protection from agrichemical interests, and it is EPA’s job to deliver it.”

Kimbrell’s lamenting of the ruling is easily understandable; we know neonics are harmful pesticides and yet, our bureaucratic government is doing nothing to stop the damage.

Neonics have been linked to record all-time highs of colony deaths, water pollution, and are known to pose risks to other valuable species, like birds.

Earlier this year, the federal government itself released a report admitting that neonics are harmful and have been causing catastrophic bee deaths across the country. The findings were part of the first scientific risk assessment to conducted on this type of insecticide and their affect on bee populations. (Read more news about avoiding exposure to pesticides and other chemicals at

Indeed, the government’s own report confirmed what many activists and beekeepers have been saying for years: neonics weaken, disorient and kill honeybees.

The analysis particularly highlighted the harmful nature of imidacloprid, showing that it clearly caused damage to beehives and honey production. The EPA itself confirmed that when bees are exposed to imidacloprid at concentrations of at least 25 parts per billion — a pretty standard amount on crops — they suffer grieviously.

“These effects include decreases in pollinators as well as less honey produced,” the EPA’s press release states.

The report on imidacloprid is very concerning — but what is perhaps even more concerning is the fact that this report focused on just one, singular neonictonoid, when there are in fact several used nation-wide. It is not just one form of this insecticide that has been indicated as harmful — it is the entire class of neonics that many have found to be problematic.

What is most concerning about seed coatings containing neonics is that they are not exactly regulated  well. The group of beekeepers who filed suit against the EPA did so for this exact reason. Seed coating is the most prolific form of neonic use — and yet the EPA has never conducted safety testing on this use.  Toxic dust floats in the air every spring after corn is planted, thanks to neonic seed coatings, and it is this dust that is what is often most problematic.

Beekeeper Brett Adee lost more than 6,000 hives last spring during corn planting. A state investigation concluded that his bees were poisoned by a neonic that was used on the seeds his neighbors had planted. Mr. Adee is not the first beekeeper to lose his bees to insecticides, and he surely won’t be the last — given that the EPA has exempted seed coating from regulation.

When dismissing the case filed by beekeepers and advocates, the judge proclaimed, “The Court is most sympathetic to the plight of our bee population and beekeepers. Perhaps the EPA should have done more to protect them, but such policy decisions are for the agency to make.”

Natural citrus fruit extract can activate cancer-killing cells /naturalnews/2017-01-14-natural-citrus-fruit-extract-can-activate-cancer-killing-cells /naturalnews/2017-01-14-natural-citrus-fruit-extract-can-activate-cancer-killing-cells#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> Could a simple fruit extract really help kill cancer? Recent research certainly seems to suggest just that. Modified citrus pectin may help to inhibit the expression of galectin-3 —  a type of protein that has been recognized as a biomarker of cancer. Scientists have struggled to create a pharmaceutical product that can combat the overexpression of galectin-3, but evidence of modified citrus pectin’s ability to prevent it continues to mount. (RELATED: Learn more about the healing power of nutritional supplements at

What is galectin-3, and what does it do?

Galectins are a group of proteins that belong to the lectin family, characterized by their galactose-specific carbohydrate recognition domain. Galectin-3 is one of the most studied galectins, and research continues to show that it is both directly and indirectly connected to cancer cell activity and may contribute to cancer progression in a number of different ways, including cancer progression and metastasis.

Galectin-3 is not all bad, though. It is produced by the human body and is necessary for tissue growth and repair. Excessive production of the protein, however, is likely to become problematic. An excessively high level of galactin-3 is a biomarker for cancer, as well as a strong indicator of heart disease and kidney disease. Researchers now believe that in addition to being an indicator of disease, galectin-3 is also capable of encouraging the growth and spread of cancer.

One of the functions of galectin-3 is to actually stoke immune system response and create inflammation, to help destroy invading pathogens after tissue damage. In cases of injury, galectin-3 serves to help “seal off” the area by causing chronic inflammation.

Galectin-3 promotes cancer growth and proliferation in a few different ways. Essentially, it makes it easier for cancer cells to adhere to the walls of blood vessels, and in this way, helps the cancer spread. The protein is also produced by cancer cells themselves, which can further their proliferation. Galectin-3 is also said to help malignant cells escape apoptosis, or programmed cell death. In turn, these cancerous cells can continue to multiply, and produce more galectin-3.

Fortunately, there appears to be a natural way to curb this vicious cycle.

Modified citrus pectin: what it is, and how it can help

Modified citrus pectin, or MCP for short, is a complex carbohydrate, similar to the natural pectin found in fruit. Pectin contains galactosides (sugar molecules), which are capable of bonding with galectin-3. The binding activity of MCP’s galactosides to galectin-3 blocks the protein’s damaging behavior and disrupts its signaling abilities. To put it simply, MCP essentially shuts down the galectin-3 protein and stops its harmful effects in their tracks. This could be useful not just in cancer treatment, but in other areas as well.

In an animal study, MCP not only inhibited the levels of galectin-3, it also reversed inflammation, fibrosis and thickening of blood vessel walls. This finding suggests that in the instance of heart disease, MCP can help to reverse the damaging effects of excessive galectin-3, and undo the changes that can often lead to heart failure. (RELATED: Learn more about the disease prevention properties of natural remedies at

Studies have also shown that MCP can stimulate the immune system and boost production of natural killer cells, which can locate and destroy cancer cells. Several different studies have illustrated these potential cancer-killing effects. For example, a study published in 2015 by the journal PLOS One found that MCP induced cell death in two different types of cancer cells. Another study, published by BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2011 found that MCP activated natural killer cells that were then able to target and destroy leukemic cancer cells.

Other studies have also shown that MCP may be able to help stop cancer from spreading to other areas. In animals, MCP has been shown to prevent skin cancer from spreading to the lungs, and has also prevented colon cancer from spreading to the liver.

Perhaps citrus pectin will prove to be the next all-natural cancer cure. While this research is only the beginning, it is certainly promising. Who knows what independent science could reveal next.

Research: Teens take in enough sugar each year to fill a bathtub with cola /naturalnews/2017-01-14-researchers-teens-drink-enough-sugar-to-fill-a-bathtub-with-cola-every-year /naturalnews/2017-01-14-researchers-teens-drink-enough-sugar-to-fill-a-bathtub-with-cola-every-year#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> A new study conducted by the United Kindgom’s Cancer Research UK charity has uncovered some shocking revelations about the sugar habits of teenagers. Their research suggests that teens in the UK eat enough sugar every year to fill a bathtub with soda.

Researchers from the charity analyzed data from a national diet survey that had been conducted in 2015. What they found was that across all age groups, children are consuming far too much sugar in drinks, although there did seem to be an improvement since 2014. For teenagers, sugar-sweetened beverages are their primary mode of consuming added sugars. (RELATED: Learn more about disease promoting food ingredients at

According to the BBC, a five-year-old child should have no more than 19g of sugar in a day, a 10-year-old no more than 24g. Teenagers and adults should have no more than 30g. And yet, a single can of soda contains 9 teaspoons of sugar — equivalent to 35 grams!

The survey data analyzed indicates that teens in the UK consume more than 234 cans of soda per year, on average. National Diet and Nutrition Survey data from 2008 to 2012 indicates that the average teenager in the United Kingdom consumes 74 grams of added sugars every day, which equates to 15.6 percent of their total calorie intake. A staggering 40 percent of that added sugar comes from soft drinks.

Of course, teens in the United States have not fared much better. Reports have indicated that adolescents in the US get a whopping 20 percent of their total daily energy intake from added sugars. Half of that sugar comes from sugar-sweetened beverages like sodas, sports drinks and energy drinks. What happened to drinking water?

Mass overconsumption of sugar is a problem in both the United States and the United Kingdom — that is very clear. There are many ill effects associated with excessive sugar intake. The current prevailing theory suggests that taking in too many calories will increase your risk of becoming overweight or obese — and it is this obesity that increases your risk of diabetes. Many scientists are still debating on whether or not sugar can increase your risk of developing this condition as well, but the evidence is surely mounting.

Researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine, the University of California-Berkeley and the University of California-San Francisco examined ten years of data from 175 different countries and their findings were published by the journal PLOS One in February 2013. This large-scale epidemiological study has indicated that sugar consumption can indeed influence your risk for developing diabetes, independent of your body weight.

The study’s lead author  Sanjay Basu, MD, PhD and assistant professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, says that their data suggests that at a population level, there are additional factors that can contribute to diabetes risk besides obesity and total calorie intake.  While Basu says that their findings do not diminish the importance of obesity as a risk for diabetes, he states that sugar appears to play a prominent role.

Their findings were really quite shocking. Their data revealed that for every additional 150 calories of sugar available per person per day, the prevalence of diabetes in the population rose 1 percent, even after controlling for obesity, physical activity, other types of calories and a number of economic and social variables. Conversely, 150 additional calories from any type of food only created a 0.1 percent increase in diabetes prevalence.

In other words, sugar has ten times the impact of other foods on diabetes risk, at a population level. More shocking still, is the fact that the researchers also found that the longer a population was exposed to excess sugar, the more this risk continued to increase. The diabetes rate continued to increase along with time exposed to excess sugar, independent of other risk factors like obesity. However, when sugar availability diminished, diabetes risk also decreased, independent of other changes to calorie consumption, physical activity or obesity rates.

This finding demonstrates the very real risk that excessive sugar consumption poses. Some research has indicated that teenagers may be particularly susceptible to effects of sugar, as well.

It is clear that kids today, and adults, are eating way too much sugar, and it is putting their health at serious risk.

Youth exposed to alcohol marketing more likely to drink underage, study finds /naturalnews/2017-01-13-youth-exposed-to-alcohol-marketing-more-likely-to-drink-underage-study-finds /naturalnews/2017-01-13-youth-exposed-to-alcohol-marketing-more-likely-to-drink-underage-study-finds#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> Since 2008, there have been 12 long-term studies done across the globe reviewing the effects of alcohol marketing and underage drinking. The study was led by the Center of Alcohol Marketing and Youth through the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The results were published in a special issue of the journal Addiction focusing on alcohol marketing and public health. They have shown not only an increase in underage drinking, but also in binge drinking.

The studies looked at the effects of exposure to marketing and ads on television, internet, radio, print, social media, and at sporting and other events. There were more than 35,000 participants across seven countries. What has been found is that alcohol is the leading cause of death and disability in men ages 15-24 around the world and in women of the same ages in wealthy countries and America. More than 4,300 deaths are caused by underage excessive drinking every year in the United States alone.

Binge drinking as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is four or more drinks in 2 hours by women and five or more drinks in 2 hours by men. Approximately 11 percent of all alcohol consumption in the United States is done by youth aged 12-20 years, with the majority being binge drinking. The effects of binge drinking have been found to include negative public health consequences, such as attempted suicide, violence, illicit drug use and sexual assaults according to the CDC. It has also been found that those who begin drinking before the age of 15 have a higher chance of developing alcohol dependence or abuse further down the road than those who began drinking later in life.

In the United States, marketing and advertising is self-regulated primarily by the alcohol industry themselves, leaving much to be desired. There has been sufficient evidence that marketing exposure has been nearly as high or as high among youth as it is among older teens and young adults. The alcohol industry’s voluntary marketing codes are not stopping advertising from reaching children as young as 10 years old. “Public health policies that can reduce or mitigate the effect of alcohol marketing exposure on youth drinking behavior are sorely needed,” study leader David Jernigan, PhD says. “With numerous countries considering greater restrictions on alcohol marketing, the findings of these studies signal the public health importance of that debate.”

Several ideas have been put forth as ideas to help control the marketing that our youth will see in regards to alcohol. Some of these include a comprehensive ban on advertising, statutory regulations enforced by an appropriate public health organization, and regulations independent of the alcohol industry, whose primary concern is growing profits.

Vaccine pushers who promote mercury injections into children are “medical child molesters,” warns heavy metals expert /naturalnews/2017-01-13-vaccine-pushers-mercury-injections-into-children-medical-child-molesters-warns-heavy-metals-expert /naturalnews/2017-01-13-vaccine-pushers-mercury-injections-into-children-medical-child-molesters-warns-heavy-metals-expert#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Read More]]> On top of all the sicko pedophilia and child trafficking going on in America, there’s also the vaccine industry: A cartel of toxic mercury pushers whose denial of the periodic table of elements (yes, they are science deniers) turns them into “medical child molesters” as they demand more and more children be injected with toxic mercury, a known neurotoxin and potent heavy metal that causes brain damage.

As any genuine scientist or chemist knows, there is no such thing as a safe quantity or safe form of mercury for injecting into children. The continued advocacy of vaccines containing mercury — which continue to be pushed onto children and pregnant women all across America — is a crime against children and a gross violation of the American Medical Association’s code of medical ethics.

As the lab science director of an internationally accredited heavy metals laboratory — — I’ve personally tested vaccines for their mercury content, and I know more about heavy metals than most vaccine pushers will ever learn in their lives. (I wrote an #1 Science book on heavy metals in food called Food Forensics.) The simple truth is that mercury is a potent neurotoxin and it’s still being deliberately used in vaccines injected into infants, children and pregnant women all across America.

Mercury in vaccines is “chemical violence” against children

That’s a “chemical assault” and a form of violence against children. That’s why I’ve decided to start calling it “medical child molestation.” Hear my podcast below for more discussion. This means that medical hacks and vaccine propagandists like Dr. David Gorski and Calif. state Sen. Richard Pan are openly advocating a form of medical violence against children. Meanwhile, people like myself (the Health Ranger) are routinely vilified in the pharma-controlled media for practicing good science and working to protect children from a known neurotoxin.

“There is no debate that mercury in any form is toxic. Scientists may debate the differences in toxicity between different forms of mercury, such as ethylmercury (which is an ingredient in Thimerosal) or methylmercury (from fish). But all would agree that mercury is a potent neurotoxin.” – Mark Hyman, M.D.

“The continued use of mercury, a known neurotoxin, raises particular concern for populations that are most vulnerable to neurodevelopmental harms, mainly a fetus in utero, infants, young children and the aged. When we speak of the health and safety of our children, our future generation, we speak of a societal responsibility, which we are privileged to bear… Many of the CDC’s own studies have demonstrated a link between increased Thimerosal exposures and the development of vocal and motor tics, which are generally recognized as autismlike features. This alarming association has been downplayed to the public.” — US Congressman Bill Posey

“That mercury is toxic cannot be disputed. To say otherwise is to pick a fight with the periodic table and the fundamental principles of physical chemistry. Consider the organization of electrons in atoms. Mercury is a large, heavy atom with more orbitals than lighter metals, like copper or zinc, and has a greater capacity to pick up and exchange electrons. …Mercury is thus a metabolic poison because it can insinuate itself into situations where it doesn’t belong.” – Martha R. Herbert, PhD, MD

“There is a broad consensus among research scientists that Thimerosal is a dangerous neurotoxin that should be immediately removed from medicines. Several hundred peer-reviewed scientific publications by the world’s leading research scientists, public health agencies, universities, and teaching hospitals have confirmed that Thimerosal is a potent neurotoxin that has never been proven safe for medical use and for which cost-effective alternatives exist.” – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. from his book Thimerosal – Let the Science Speak: The Evidence Supporting the Immediate Removal of Mercury – a Known Neurotoxin – from Vaccines.
