As Medical Screening and Mammograms Increase For Breast Cancer, So Does Death
February 28, 2013 | JunkHealthcare | D.Mihalovic
There is a secular trend between breast cancer mortality and screening programs specifically medial diagnostic techniques such as mammography. Breast cancer screening does not play a direct role in the reductions of deaths due to breast cancer in almost every region in the world. Part of the failure correlates to more than 70 percent of mammographically detected tumors being false positives leading to unnecessary and invasive biopsies and subsequent cancer treatment such as radiation which itself causes cancer.
Fear of The Unknown Is Still Dividing The Planet: It's Time To Let Others Just Be
February 27, 2013 | Consciousness | M.Forrester
A common theme seems to be steadily intensifying with those who disagree with information on the internet--a fear of the unknown. There is a constant need to insult or criticize content which disagrees with their own sense of truth. Although confronting fear won't always make it go away, many researchers suggest that people must alter memory-driven negative attitudes about feared objects, events or the unknown to overcome the fear itself, allowing open-mindedness and multiple perspectives to override negativity.
Suppressed Scientific Evidence Proves Free Energy Source Dating Back 25,000 Years
February 26, 2013 | Consciousness | M.Forrester
A monumental discovery with four years of comprehensive geo-archaeological research has failed to reach mainstream audiences for some reason. The most active pyramid site in the world dating the pyramid complex back 25,000 years has also released scientific evidence supporting the theory that the pyramids were used as an energy source. The recent study reveals energy beams transmitting electromagnetic signals unexplainable by our science in what is now documented as the largest Pyramid complex in the world. Overwhelming evidence, supported by scientific research from all over the archeological community proves that our recorded history is wrong concerning ancient cultures which in turn changes religion, science and academics.
The Grand Illusion of Self: You're Not The Person You Think You Are
February 26, 2013 | Consciousness | J.Markus
As you rise every morning, one aspect of your self reassembles: the first-person observer of reality, inhabiting a human body. As you move on throughout your day, so does your sense of having a past, a personality and motivations. Your self is complete, as both witness of the world and bearer of your consciousness and identity. You. This intuitive sense of self is an effortless and fundamental human experience. But it is nothing more than an elaborate illusion and how you perceive reality is very unique to you and defines every moment of who you are.

A Fever Is A Good Thing, Don't Suppress It
February 25, 2013 | ChildHealth | M.Torres
A low fever can actually benefit a sick child, and researchers have attributed parental tendencies to overtreat by "fever phobia"--a fear that fever is harmful--which they say originated after the introduction of anti-fever drugs like Tylenol. In addressing this important concern of parents, it's vital to understand that a fever serves to protect your body against infection and trauma in three major ways.

Large studies have confirmed the link between vasectomy and prostate cancer, tumors as well as chromosomal abnormalities in sperm.
One of The Worst Things You Can Do To a Developing Fetus
February 22, 2013 | JunkHealthcare | E.Schumacher
If you had to guess - what would you say is one of the worst things you could do to a developing fetus? Smoking cigarettes? Drinking alcohol? Heavy lifting? Falling down a flight of stairs? Sure - these are all dangerous things to do while pregnant, but another thing that you may not have considered that is actually dangerous to a developing child - ultrasounds!
Amazing News For People Who Consume Avocados
February 22, 2013 | Nutrition | A.McCarthy
New analysis of data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), indicates that consuming avocados may be associated with better diet quality and nutrient intake level, lower intake of added sugars, lower body weight, BMI and waist circumferences, higher “good cholesterol” levels and lower metabolic syndrome risk. These results were published in the January 2013 issue of Nutrition Journal.
Organic Vegetables Are More Nutritious Due To An Environment That Forces Survival
February 21, 2013 | Nutrition | M.Torres
Laziness makes people more lethargic, decreases their ability to metabolize nutrients and leads to a general state of unhealthiness. The same applies to the plant world. When we raise crops on conventional farms riddled with pesticides and shelter them from what we consider to be harmful elements, their nutritional content decreases and we end up with an inferior plant kingdom that can no longer support itself. According to research in the open access journal PLOS ONE, greater plant stress on organic farms causes tomatoes to accumulate higher concentrations of vitamin C and lycopene compared to those grown on conventional farms.
Refined White Flour Products and Dairy Linked To Acne
February 21, 2013 | JunkFood | A.McCarthy

The Top 10 Healthiest Seeds on Earth
February 19, 2013 | Nutrition | J.Summerly
They come in all different sizes, shapes and colours. The seed is an embryonic plant itself and the origin of nutrition.

A Flawed Process Is At The Heart of Science and Journal Publications
February 18, 2013 | JunkScience | Editor
Peer review is at the heart of the processes of not just medical journals but of all of science. It is the method by which grants are allocated, papers published, academics promoted, and Nobel prizes won. It has allowed government agencies to approve untold numbers of drugs and vaccines, or rubber stamp thousands of chemicals as safe. It has until recently been unstudied. And its defects are easier to identify than its attributes. Yet it shows no sign of going away.
Why Even One Alcoholic Drink Per Day Boosts Cancer Risk
February 18, 2013 | Cancer | K.Foster
We've looked at the French for years to discover exactly why their high consumption of wine has led to lower rates of heart disease and cancer. Scientists discovered more than a decade ago that it had nothing to do with the alcohol and everything to do with resveratrol antioxidants in red grapes. The French are also more active and eat less processed foods with less toxic preservatives, which may protect them against many cancers. However, when it comes to alcohol consumption, the same is not true for westerners. Researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) have shown that alcohol is a major contributor to cancer and drinking even small amounts of alcohol, as little as one drink, can increase the risk of developing cancer, a new study has warned.

5 Natural Methods to Prevent Tooth Disease
February 15, 2013 | Prevention | S.Arnold
Tooth disease is a process where acids, created by bacteria in your mouth, damage your teeth. When it comes to tooth disease, many people blame plaque. They claim the buildup of plaque causes your tooth enamel to deteriorate and gives you cavities. The reality is plaque only plays a minor role in the progression of tooth decay. The primary factors affecting our teeth are our daily diet and the strength of our tooth enamel.
Research Now Showing Natural Products As Effective As Man-Made Drugs
February 15, 2013 | NaturalLiving | M.Pochelli
Many combinations of natural products are as effective as man-made drugs, but without the side effects when acting against specific diseases. For empirical evidence, look no further than the indigenous tribes and cultures which still use many formulations pre-dating the historical record and with great success. A comprehensive study and first of its kind published in PLoS One assessed 124 natural product combinations and found that in the right combinations, they can match drug level potency.
Recombined Flu and SARS-like Viruses Circulating, Airborne, And Immune To Hand Sanitization
February 14, 2013 | Viruses | D.Mihalovic

A Cure For Every Type of Bacteria And It's Raw, Natural and Never Spoils
February 13, 2013 | Healing | M.Torres
Many state it's not what honey is good for, but what isn't it good for. Honey has been used medically for hundreds of years, but for no reasons other than profit, mainstream medicine has sought to develop man-made antibiotics which have only led to antibiotic resistance and other diseases. New research has shown the honey kills every type of bacteria scientists have thrown at it, including the antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" plaguing hospitals and killing patients around the world.

The 7 Most Prescribed Drugs In The World And Their Natural Counterparts
February 12, 2013 | Prevention | D.Mihalovic
We don't have to live in a medicated world, but we certainly choose to. The crux of the matter is that we refuse to proactively think about prevention because we reactively commit to treating the symptoms of underlying health problems. This is the allopathic model. We want the quick fix so we can continue our poor lifestyle and dietary habits. It doesn't have to be this way, but it is. We can blame doctors, the medical institutions and healthcare systems all we want, but self-responsibility is our only recourse if we are ever to surface from this mess. There are no excuses--if you're taking one of these drugs, consult with a Natural Health Practitioner this week about phasing out your medication and phasing in these powerful natural foods and remedies.
This Mineral Plays a Key Role In Battling Infections And Supporting Immunity, Yet Most People Are Deficient
February 12, 2013 | Antioxidants | K.Foster

5 Foods That Kill Cancer And Help The Body Destroy Tumours Without Any Drugs
February 11, 2013 | Prevention | D.Mihalovic
Certain proteins within our immune system hold the precise instructions needed to destroy cancerous tumours. In a healthy body, this inherent ability is always present and always effective without the use of drugs. However, these proteins can be rendered ineffective if cells experience uncontrolled growth though damage or mutations to DNA or if toxins through food and chemical pollution override the immune system's natural function. Researchers from Pennsylvania State University have finally helped identify and support previous evidence which demonstrated how foods suppresses tumour development during immune surveillance, the immune system's process of patrolling the body for cancer cells.
Rice Bran Oil: One Big Health Disadvantage Outweighs All Its Advantages
February 11, 2013 | Nutrition | J.Summerly
Rice bran oil has been touted by some health experts as the solution to the ever increasing cases of metabolic syndrome.

Americans, Canadians And Other Nations Must Take Back Their Governments
February 10, 2013 | GovernmentAbuse | M.Torres
Most people in Canada, the United States, UK and many other nations are operating on auto-pilot, completely ignorant to the fact their current governments have absolutely no authority over them. These de facto foreign administrations of unelected industrialists, financiers, academics, military leaders along with representatives from our elected government officials have been very busy the past century implementing changes into the nations who were once sovereign and free. This is even admitted by these entities, however they have no real authority to restrict public mobility, free trade or limit access to anything. That means that everybody is free to drive without insurance, driver's license, license plates, free to trade any articles of exchange including vitamins, supplements, healing modalities and free to consume and ingest anything they wish without restriction. This is a right of all people born on any land, but they don't want you to know that and will silence and do everything within their power so you don't know the facts.

The Top 4 Foods To Avoid If You Want To Be Healthy
February 8, 2013 | Nutrition | E.Schumacher
You've probably heard it before and you'll going to hear it again now: "Americans are overfed and undernourished." It means that, as a nation, we are eating plenty of calories but they are doing nothing to nourish our bodies and give us what we need. We are 'starving' as a nation and it's no wonder that we have high rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.

If You Believe In Vaccines, You Don't Believe In The Perfection of The Human Body
February 7, 2013 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
Plain and simple, you can't believe in both. The marketing of vaccines relies on fear and intimidation with a constant amplification of a myth that the human body is somehow flawed and incapable of protecting itself against foreign invaders. Humans have lived on the Earth for hundreds of millennia, yet in the span of only one century, mass populations have been duped into believing they can no longer survive on this planet without foreign DNA and man-made chemicals being injected into their bodies. The lies have been repeated so often that they have become the truth for billions of people--and regardless of the resources and logic these people are presented with, they will defend their truth until their time has come to see an alternative perspective. So here's one perspective: If you believe in vaccines, you don't believe in natural health and you certainly don't have any confidence in the human body in all its perfection.

Women In Their 50s Have The Most Empathy Of Any Age Group
February 6, 2013 | Love | K.Foster

Give Somebody a Hug: The Power of Touch Heals Instantly
February 5, 2013 | Love | A.McCarthy
It's no exaggeration either. Touch is a key component of traditional healing and is being increasingly studied in mainstream medicine, with some trials showing symptom benefits in a number of areas, from asthma and high blood pressure to migraine and childhood diabetes. Other research findings hint that not only does touch lower stress levels, but that it can boost the immune system and halt or slow the progress of disease.
9 Concepts Kids Should Learn About Health That They'll Never Learn In School
February 4, 2013 | ChildHealth | M.Torres
When it comes to health, children today are guided by an illusion of reality. Teachers in the educational system have only the best of intentions, but unfortunately even they are led by a curriculum so distorted from our natural world, that it is nearly impossible for children to learn any semblance of how to obtain a healthy body. A new health paradigm is creeping up and it's not under the radar. It's in your face, assertive, wide-reaching with well-organized supporters numbering in the millions. They don't agree with GMO, vaccines, fluoride in our water, toxins in our food and nobody can prove them wrong. More parents, teachers and leaders in society need to instill these concepts in our children to transform a completely misinformed generation into one that is informed.

If You Don't Like Warm Liquids When You're Sick, Try Flu Busting Ice-Cream
February 3, 2013 | Healing | J.Summerly
When we're down and out with a bad cold or flu, many of us reach for hot soups and warm liquids to soothe the pain, however there is no evidence that the temperature of a beverage or food will influence our ability to heal. Some people outright avoid hot soups and prefer refrigerated food products despite the mainstream opinion that it will somehow make us feel worse. For many it does and for others there is absolutely no difference. For those who prefer a chilled soother rather than a warm one for your sniffles, this recipe is for you.
Study Shows Marriage, Cohabitation Decreases Heart Attack Risk In Men and Women of All Ages
February 3, 2013 | Lifestyle | A.McCarthy
Some evidence has shown that married people are generally happier, but that's no reason to rush to the altar as there are plenty of single people out there who are very content and satisfied with their own company. However, when to comes to cardiovascular risk, marriages and cohabitation may offer considerable benefits according to a large population-based study from Finland has shown that being unmarried increases the risk of fatal and non-fatal heart attack in both men and women regardless of age. Being married and cohabiting are associated with “considerably better prognosis of acute cardiac events."
Children Worldwide Are Contracting The Very Diseases They Are Being Vaccinated Against
February 1, 2013 | Vaccines | D.Mihalovic
After a recent failed publicity stunt involving disgraced CNN and British journalist Piers Morgan, the public continues to question the so-called science behind vaccines. In a desperate attempt to demonstrate the "safety and effectiveness of the shot," he received his very first influenza inoculation live on air from vaccine advocate Dr. Oz which consequently led to the development of Morgan's flu-like symptoms that even he later attributed to the reception of the shot. There is now a spotlight on a common theme that continues to plague those who are vaccinated and it is contrary to what mainstream medicine has claimed for decades. The truth is, vaccines do not create immunity and do not protect humans from any disease, and recent evidence in cases of whooping cough, measles, and out breaks of chicken pox are adding arrows to the archery board of doubt when it comes to vaccine efficacy.
